Daphne Is Crying...Like A Baby...



Argh!


Ok, so that wasn't the crying part, but the screaming non-stop like an idiot part...


I have been trying desperately to load photos on my blog, after taking nearly 2 days to log in...Needless to say, since you see no photos, the uploading of photos was a complete failure ler...


Anyway, change of plans! I have something new to blog about...


I got a full-tuition-fee *scholarship to study in the Canadian University of my choice! I spent nearly 2 months putting together my application, and spent a few months of fretting and worrying about whether I missed anything...



I don't generally follow feng-shui-ish stuff, but dear Aunty Rita was so sweet to prepare a personal feng-shui chart for me, that I thought I'd give it a shot! But drat it, I had no compass, so the best I could do was wear green...Haha! Thanks Aunty Rita!


Anyway, I finally got an answer today, and I am sooooo happy!





So, Daphne is crying like a baby now...

Call me a bragging little b****, but really, I don't care at the moment...I am so happy, I just need to tell...Somebody...Anybody...Everybody!



More later!



*Trent (University) International Global Citizen Tuition Scholarship

Woohoo! Gurdeep is right. You truly deserve it and the decision makers knew it. Tears of joy are fun, aren't they? After you told me the news this morning, my sis sent me a photo of my mom giving the thumbs-up from his hospital bed. Her gown was a bit off her shoulder like a strip-tease. I shed my second round of glee-water. Now my eyes are bloodshot but well worth two wonderful success stories.

Excellent work, Daph!

Rita Ho said...

I forgot to add - please continue to brag about your preparations, plans, farewell parties, etc. Hehe ..

Congratulations! Hey.. does that mean you can meet Uncle Lee?

ps: Any tips on Feng Shui for me? *winks*

Rita Ho said...

Daph ... I foresee many happy meals from morning to midnight ahead for you. Hehe!

PS to Pi ... Cute kan, my emoticon? A friend sent it to me when I first started to write scripts saying I will need it. The time has come. :(

Wak Masnoor said...

Haha...hey Daphne, with you, the selection board wouldn't have the problem of picking up the right candidates from the 'Magic-hat', cos you so truly DESERVED IT. They just need to open up this cute little (aspiring too) blog of yours, to see what a wonderful, amazing, colorful, interesting and deserving choice Daphne Ling is.

Emm, let me see. I think i was kind of lucky in my days, cos instead of looking for one (the scholarship); it came looking for me (and thousand others too la). Not that straight away 'onto the hands kind of coming'la, still had to fill in this and that and the same burden of pain (and time wasting) in waiting for the result (official letter)to come by; but the agony was quite different then. Ya lah, Govt scholarship...what do you expect, so more or less, once 'you're in it, you'll have it'. So the 'crying' kind of things in being selected for the scholarship, wasn't as momentous as you la dear, but still 'the teardrop falls'.

So im sure there'll be another round of 'crying' when the time comes. For that is what the 'scholarship' meant, in a cynical way. It helps you to say goodbye dear homeland.

But crying it shall be, let the cry be the happiest one, for now. And to see a good friend such as you deserving what is deserved; me too cant stop shedding a few happy tears of mine...for you.

Happy 'crying' girl.
