I've been meaning to write about my new colleague for so long.
Only now, I gotta to sit down and share with you guys about him.

I met him the first time in the elevator. When I saw him..I told myself how handsome was the man standing next to me. He looked like a Japanese movie star. Average in size, clean face, long and curly hair (men's long hair). When we arrived at this one floor, he was ready to leave. At that moment I realized the man is blind.
So, I tweet "Just saw a young blind handsome Japanese patient."

Later after that incident..I saw him everywhere..On the street, at the supa, bus stop, restaurant, etc.

A more surprising incident happened a few days later when..he was introduced to me as the member of our dept. In fact he has been a member (a surgeon) to our department for years. But then..years ago..he was not a blind man.

So, what went wrong?
I kept the question to myself. Until one day I find courage to ask my other colleague.
She told me..he got blind because some chemicals has contaminated his eyes 2 years ago while working in our laboratory. In a blink..he lost his sight. For 2 years, he just stayed at home until just recently he decided to go out again. My big boss has to provide a special room for him (and there goes my proteomic lab :p). And of course..all of us questioning what can he do?

I never 'really' talked to him. I don't know whether he can speak english or not. But I had almost knocked him down with doors many times T_T I don't know the old man who always came late in the evening with janitor uniform. He always brought dinner for him. Most of the time..on the way back home, I saw the old man pushing the bicycle while holding my blind colleague's hand. I kept telling myself that the old man might be his dad. But I denied that myself. Coz if it's true..I might ended up crying every time I see the scene.

From there I learned, what we have today..might be taken away in a way we never can imagine at any time we could never care less.

Appreciate every second you have while you are 'there'.
