My First PhD Crisis

And definitely not the last.  Over the last few days, I am going through this so called crisis phase.  Many friends have told me about their experiences before and that this is a common thing in PhD research. Despite bracing myself for it, knowing that it will come sooner or later, I am still not handling my emotions and stress as well as I should.  I feel a little burnt out, both physically and mentally.  I need to catch up on sleep, restructure my research direction and have more of those reassuring talks with my supervisor.

Obituary - Canon Ixus 950 IS

Born: March 2008
Departed: November 2009

Death due to violence perpetrated by a minor.

My Canon Ixus' lens became a replica of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. 

It was crooked, cracked and unable to retract after being man-handled by chubby kid. I did not know what she did with it. One minute it was OK, another minute it was dead.  This chubby kid is becoming a very high-maintenance kid.

Baby, It's Heavy

But as usual, she is too stubborn to listen and insists on hauling that luggage.

I managed to snap some photos with my mobile phone the other day. Look at chubby kid's hair. I am beginning to like her girly look a lot.

But of course, it was not me who tied her hair. Oh look!

Same style, different colour. I guess now we know who tied chubby kid's hair.

We made some char sio pau a few days ago.

They were delicious and chubby kid loved them.

Food in the Window

Some photos of food in the window in Madrid.  Nice cheese.  Some stink though.

Cakes and pastries.

And best of all, seafood.
