"Be Love" is a bold declaration. It's about choosing kindness over being right. It's about cutting out the conditions in which you might think are required for love and going straight to the source, or rather, being the source yourself, that which is Love, unconditional.
So… Question of the moment:
What conditions are you willing to let go of today?

P.S. i know how horrible my blog template looks now, but finding a new one and getting down to messing with the html etc takes an awful lot of time. will do it eventually :)

finally an update!
work's going fine :) i like the fact that i'm surrounded by people i know, cos most of the pharmacology dept is in the same building as me ever since a part of it moved over from CeLS a few months back. and it's HELLO cell culture all over again hehe :) i wasn't employed to do cell culture initially but a colleague decided to head for greener pastures so i'm taking over her cell culture project. beats doing HPLC man. so damn boring! i keep wanting to fall asleep staring at those peaks. but i'll still have to do HPLC in future. oh well, doing HPLC PLUS cell culture beats doing HPLC alone. lol! i dunno if i'm still required to do animal work in future or not but i'm secretly hoping that i don't need to :S haha.
my lab's damn small btw! there are three of us and one is leaving next week so it's just two! but they're gonna employ like one or two more RAs i think.
i miss Bian's lab SO MUCH. they're one helluva noisy bunch. they're one floor above me and whenever i reach the lift landing on their level (i find myself visiting them more often than i should) i hear their laughter lol.
Commencement was fun :) a great end to an important chapter in my life. am lazy to post pictures haha. they're up on facebook anw! now i finally understand when friends say that they're lazy to post pics on their blogs after posting them on FB lol. yes i'm slow!
i'm lazy to do up a photo journal of the Three Gorges trip as well! zzz. work makes me sian to do anything else when i reach home lol.
shall post a few photos here till the next time i get my butt down to really writing about the trip :) dunno when that will happen! hmmm my mind tells me it'll probably never happen hahaha.
so here goes:
the unique mountains iconic of Zhang Jia Jie. the rain was a mood dampener :(
Bao Feng lake:
sunset on the bus ride to Yi Chang:
a picture of our cruise:
Yang Tze River, or 长江. the water's a murky brown when we were there cos it's summer and heaploads of soil and mud get deposited in it. it's a nice bluish green in the other seasons! DARN.
my favourite part of the trip: a visit to the Three Gorges Dam and Shiplock!
Little Three Gorges:
this picture says "China!" all over it :) haha. at Bai Di Cheng (literally White Emperor City):
pretty flowers at Feng Du Ghost City (a dumb tourist attraction that reminds me of Haw Par Villa):
flying kites on the deck of the cruise with the strong wind in our faces. an experience in itself :)
spent 3 days in Zhang Jia Jie (not in map) then took a 6-hour bus ride to Yi Chang where we boarded the cruise which went along the Yang Tze River (see the three gorges on the map!) for 4 days till we reached Chong Qing where we flew home thereafter. what a mouthful! haha.
ok it's 12 am now and i have to sleep! i'm now sleeping at or before 12 am every night or else i'll be a zombie in the lab the next day.

i'm back! and there's lots of things to settle cos work starts on Monday :(( am so freaked out about starting work. is this normal? :S and commencement is just four days away! damn fast cannn.
after a week of escaping from reality, everything just comes right back and slaps you in the face.
3 gorges was awesome. i left my heart somewhere along the Yangtze River and it refuses to come back :((
caught the amazing sunset on the plane back to sg. :) pretty much a fitting way to end it all.
