After less than a year battling with colon cancer, my friend's father passed away today. I was there when he drew his last breath. It was a heartbreaking moment.
To my dearest friend, you know I love you and I'm always here for you. You’re a strong girl. I’m praying for your late father and your family.
My chest hurt, my dearest, beloved friend is sad. :(

Will Young - Changes
To me, the new Gregorian year starts on my birthday, which falls today . The song above is my anthem for this year's birthday. It conveys the feeling that I failed to express properly in writings.
10 years ago on this day, my boyfriend flew back from US to surprise me on my birthday. Back then I was young, happy in a relationship and healthy. However, my now ex-boyfriend is married to someone else and blessed with 2 daughters. I on the other hand, still young :P and diagnosed with a rare,chronic nerve disease that I've never heard of before. Relationship-wise, I still..to put it positively, haven't been picked, yet.
And I will never ever forget 2008. It was quite an eventful year. Within 1 year, I was hospitalized twice, went through an open heart surgery, experiencing a painful chest tube (and an enjoyable narcotics along the way..teehee), a much more painful Anesthesia Awareness, and saw 2 people (a Code Blue situation on one of them) die while in the hospital. (p/s I know, I’ve promised some of you to blog about this, sabar yea :D)
Therefore, I'm very much grateful and thankful to Allah The Almighty for letting me live through another year. Once again, Alhamdulillah.
