So Yesterday

Dear Zach,

I can still remember vividly last year of today, I was in the laboratory, excitedly to get started of my research. It was after a long-haul of final exam papers. I was in the lab, preparing, and doing something I thought I would have prospect in my future career. I was naïve. Too naïve. That this would be my set of the long run.

Today, I wasn’t the person I thought I would have been. It’s unimaginable that thing happened too drastic and quickly in a year apart. It feels like so yesterday.

Can’t Stop Thinking


Dear Zach,

Not sure if it’s an instant attraction or just a crush on first sight, it felt unsettling to be dreaming and thinking about the same person over again. This particular person isn’t attractive at all (according to one of my colleagues), but cute is the word I could think of describing this person. I feel like I wanna know this person better.

Maybe this feeling will fade soon. Like I said, instant attraction never last forever.

Dear Zach,

My mum has endured so much pains in her entire life – most of it were surgery for the last few years. But she never complaint.

She knew that she’s getting older by each year, her body system is dying by each day. But she never complaint.

She broke her left arm last month. She cried. And bare the agony shooting from her injury. But she never complaint.

She’s now doing the house chores with her barely-movable left arm. But she never complaint.

She still does it regardless how difficult it is to be working around with single hand. But she never complaint.

The greatest pain isn’t stopping her from being the greatest mum alive, never stop her doing what she likes, never stop her for taking care of us, even when life threw her a curveball.

That’s one thing I should really need to learn from her … Perseverance.




Happy Belated Mother’s Day!

Dear Zach,

Although I had a very much mundane day for this very day, I was moved by the sweet gesture of my mum, presenting a piece of cheese cake I love, and a kiss on my cheek.

I wouldn’t have known today I am turning 22 til my mum brought out the cake. Forgetful me.

I love you, mum, with all of my heart. You are the only person in the world who wishes me. And you are the only one who wishes me today. Thank you for everything you have done for me; your unconditional love to me; I wouldn’t be here without you constantly giving me the love I need.

Again, I love you.
