Yearly Update (still more frequent than Ken + Amanda)

It's been a while (on the blog at least!) I know we talk but would be nice to keep each other updated on other stuff as well right KEN AND AMANDA??

Anyway, I've just finished my F1 year as a doctor, which is basically my probational year and now that I've finished it I'm officially fully qualified but still way way junior. Not like Amanda, she's a big boss. Here's a quick recap of some random stuff:::

Our Christmas tree this year! We were living in a kind of small flat, and we weren't sure whether we could buy a bigger tree so we settled on this one. It was tiny but cute. As you can see fully loaded with ornaments and we were afraid it couldn't support the star. It stayed up until March I think cause we were too lazy to take it down. 

This was sometime in December. I've never had a car in this country before so I  never knew what people meant when they say your car gets frozen. I look like I'm laughing here cause it was the first time it ever happened to me and I thought it was funny. I wasn't funny the next few times. Imaging finishing a long shift and it's 11pm and you walk outside and you car door is frozen so you can't get in.

And the windshield is all frozen so you can't see anything and ya gotta defrost it before you can go anywhere!!

My only real holiday - went back to Malaysia in Feb for CNY. Here is a picture of the two great Kens. Legendary. 

Went for a weekend trip to Yorkshire Dales with old St Andrews friends - which of course includes DHARMA. We went to climb one of the 3 peaks of Yorkshire Dales. Dharma thought it was a 'hill' and after seeing it he still said it was a 'hill'. It's that thing which is covered in snow btw.

So I didn't expect it to be snow as well, so I wasn't very well prepared. I went up in sneakers and almost died slipping on the ice and stuff, but we made it to the top and I thought I was gonna lose my hands to frostbite. There's Dharma on the right and Amanda/Elizabeth may recognize other special guests Nabeel & Say How.

Another of my achievements - making noodles during night shifts using a microwave machine. 

So yeah fully qualified now and have certs to prove it!

So I've just moved to Glasgow last Wednesday for another year (it's called FY2). I'm doing medical microbiology at the moment, which is the best job I've ever had =].  Gotta start applying for training posts for next year already and gonna have to decide what to do. I'm actually still considering pathology but all my friends still think I'm joking about it. 

Apart from that my life is pretty much the same!  Look forward to coming back to Malaysia in a month where Ken and I will be suiting up for the wedding. Amanda are you suiting up with us?

George was here in Austin, TX.

so last week, my bro came to visit! he was here in the States for 2 weeks on a business trip and he managed to get a day off so we flew him to Austin. I think he got a brief overview of what Austin is like and he had a great time! I def miss him & family back home, whom I have not seen in over 3 years! some pictures from his trip:
