first off, let me just say that ... i'm sleepy. =)
i just returned from dr. chow's office where i shadowed ann for most of the morning. its friday so the office is more or less closed because the doctor isn't there which meant a good opportunity for me to get to know a few things ... except ann was a bit busy so i tried to learn on my own. basically i just did some labelling on the cases, answered the phone, signed for parcels and went through their database. ann's really nice to me, i find it easy to chat with her in chinese - she's quite funny because she'd be joking around.
ann: "so win's your sister ... that name sounds familiar .. wait, is your mom ...? (gives name)"
ann: "OH! so that's your mom! ah, you do resemble her!"
me: "..." ^^;;;
apparently, my mom's infamous in the office. she's one of their long time clients and uh, i guess you can say we're family to dr. chow.
ann: "so why are you working so hard? you're so young, you should be out dating and having fun!"
me: (just took a sip of water and trying to not choke)"uh ... well, no one's interested"
ann: "hah! don't say that. no no, that's not true. you just don't want them right?"
me: (pensive smile) "i'm just trying to get back into school that's all"
ann: "you're so young but you're already out on your own. must be hard huh?"
me: (laughing because i feel like such a kid) "yeah but its nice to be independent"
ann: "where are you going afterwards? shopping? friends?"
me: "i'm ... going to work at 3pm to 11pm"
ann: "... what? you have work today?"
ann: "aiya! you should go out and have fun"
me: (thinking we've just been through this?) "it's okay, i don't mind"
ann: "you've all known dr. chow for a long time huh?"
me: "yeah i think i've known him since when i was in my mommy's tummy"
ann: (laughing) "oh wow! he watched you all grow up!"
ann was kind to let me leave around noon and i headed to the supermarket below to buy a few things for groceries. so i headed home to make udon and gyozas for lunch and to bring to work later. i'm a bit tired now. it's friday for the rest of the world but to me, it's really only wednesday.
