Each of these writings came about for its own reasons, collectively they are musings linked by my fascination with fate, choice, chance, faith, forgiveness, forgetting, freedom of expression, appeasement through prayers, adherence to rituals, trolling for miracles, pursuit of happiness...

it's the 7th Day of the Chinese New Year, known as 人日which basically means 人人生日 (everyone's birthday). so, happy birthday to all... hope it doesnt sound too cliche.
this morning i woke up with a toothache - my first serious toothache ever since i was a primary school kid. hmm... the sudden pain was just odd. considering the pain was still bearable, i still came in to work. my colleague started commenting that my face looks as if it's sunburnt, very red. i just brushed it aside, until another colleague asked whether i m wearing blusher. so i went to check & realised (to my horror) i have rashes on my face :(
i quickly rushed to the clinic (our panel clinic is just next door) & got some meds. thank goodness, after taking the meds (which was some antibiotics & anti-itch tablets) & aplying the cream, the rashes had subsided & no more toothache (took some painkillers, too)
doc advised me not to be exposed to the hot sun ... but little did he know i m the kind of auntie who always take my umbrella when i go out for lunch, LOL. oh, well... it was probably due to the late nite shower yesterday... ;)
