Bumps and potholes in life

Life is just full of speed bumps and pot­holes.

Just when you thought every­thing would be okay, you set out your plans to embrace what is good to come, you then find out that in order to get a work per­mit in Sin­ga­pore requires you to have a med­ical check­up. Which means, a HIV test.

If you have fol­lowed my blog ear­ly enough, you would have read that I was con­tem­plat­ing into doing the test because I was scared and wor­ried. I wasn’t scared of the process, but more to anx­ious about the results.

I remem­bered vague­ly that a fel­low blog­ger friend of mine who went to Sin­ga­pore and required to go for the med­ical exam­i­na­tions. He was jok­ing­ly talk­ing about the doc­tors grab­bing his nuts and ask­ing him to cough.


I am utter­ly dis­gust­ed by the fact that I am the root cause of all these. Lester called me ear­li­er say­ing that he might need to dis­cuss with his imme­di­ate fam­i­ly, and he might not be able to because of how the imme­di­ate fam­i­ly treats him. Hyp­o­crit­i­cal kin­da fam­i­ly.

Not that I want to talk bad about Lester’s imme­di­ate fam­i­ly or some­thing, but I think his own fam­i­ly can han­dle their fam­i­ly prob­lem and not need­ing their help. Seri­ous­ly.

Then again, what if I failed the HIV test? Then I have no way of get­ting to Sin­ga­pore to work. Lester would have no chance of study­ing abroad. Yes, I am the root cause of the whole issue here.


Tomor­row would be the judg­ment day for me. I would go down to Pink Tri­an­gle to get the HIV test done, once and for all.

It’s judg­ment day.
