saying my goodbyes

January 30, 2008

it’s my last night here in singapore and i’m not ready to pack up and leave. i’ve been doing this coming and going thing for three years now, and i’m supposed to be immune, if not used to this sudden flood of departure blues. after all, i’ve done it without getting (too) upset all these years, so why should this time be any different?

perhaps it is different this time around, and perhaps i’m never going to be good at saying goodbye. i’ve had such a blast this summer- spending time with family and close friends, exploring nightspots and going on eating trails- all the catching up, reminiscing and pampering has been nothing short of lovely. it has been a time of renewing friendships and reaffirming what i love and treasure about the people close to my heart. here goes a big, big thank you to the friends who have gone out of their way to make time for me, for welcoming me with open arms, and for the great food and good fun! and of course to my amazing family for spoiling me rotten and loving me extraextra much- i cannot tell you all how much i have been blessed (heaps and heaps, surely!) during these two months, basking in all your love and care. 🙂

i’m sad to leave, but i know the memories (and photographs) will stay, for a longlonglong time to come. and with all your blessings, encouragement and prayers, i leave for melbourne tomorrow to begin yet another chapter of my life, back in the hospital in a new rotation doing what i love and enjoy deeply. thank you for all the fabulous memories, i know they’ll last me for the next ten months. till then, i shall miss you all greatly and look upon our pictures with much fondness.
