On the mend

It's a good sign when for the first time since Sunday, Terz nods a mute affirmative to the question, "Are you feeling better?" Because otherwise it's a little worrying that zealous couch/bed rest and the regular doses of Robitussin cough syrup, Panadol concoctions and Febs he's taken since Sunday haven't yet cured his hacking cough. It ain't dengue, but it's not your garden variety cough-and-cold either.

Terz being sick means that we've had no social life this week (sorry, Agagooga!). But that's okay because I've got heaps of examination marking to do. Also, I can do useful things like badly translate Chinese into English:





Here's my feeble English translation:
Courage. Because.

To face many people/things, we need courage.

When you secretly love someone, you need courage to tell him how you feel.

When you are openly in love with someone, you need courage to ask to hold his hand.
When you choose to break up completely with someone, you need even more courage.

Choose to delete X's number
Choose not to see X anymore
Choose not to have anything to do with X anymore
Choose not to be hurt because of X anymore.

Cruz Teng has a lot of courage this weekend. You leh?
Clearly, I should stick to English and shouldn't ever volunteer to teach Chinese. Even if Firefly made it cool.

Ugh. Terz is coughing again.

King - Not really... haven't been puffing for a while. I am planning to quit by the end of the month after all...

"勇气。所以。" Isn't this 'Courage. Therefore.'? Rather than 'Because'?
