sometimes, things happened. these are among the things that we cannot avoid. but there are also times when we do appreciate it once we have intelligent discussion with our peers regarding research especially with those of the same microcosm. it's just that people who are not doing research who shouldn't weigh in with all those judgmental notes regarding what we do, nor should they complaint. we love research and will keep doing research. how ironic my life is, labwork was the least of my favourite aspect of scientific study but now I am forever stuck with it, like a permanent glue. And to my surprise, I like it!!! Hehehehe.
