Just now I went home for lunch with my mother.
I will be away in no time. So, I want to spend quality time with her as much as I could, even if it means I will have to be in rush all day, have to walk several miles just to get to and fro of my car. But, I am more willing to be a bit tanned and smelly rather than feeling extreme guilt for not seeing her when I could.
So, while we are having lunch, mom tuned into the Wanita Hari Ini which was then discussing about `anak halang ibu bapa berkahwin` topic. I will not discuss further on this matter in this blog though. So, at the end of the slot, I asked her if she has ever thought of getting married. FYI, my father has passed away for 11 years already (Al-Fatihah). I told her, it is okay to want to get married again. You know why I think like that? Let`s flashback a bit..a few hours before I rushed home...
My field of speciality at the moment is cancer study at the molecular stage. So, I have to understand the disease starting at the single cell stage. Most of the time I have to study the protein folding and using the knowledge to manipulate the cancer to respond to the drug we are studying. The more I read about proteins, molecules, I realize nothing can actually exist alone. They will always be in pair (dimer). If they are not in dimer, they will have some sort of back up, in case they failed. That is why, cancer is difficult to kill.
Ok, enough with the science. The bottom line is, everything I see here is created in pair.
Of course, mom doesn`t need to get married if she doesn`t want to. Because the dimer I mentioned just not are not just existed as heterodimer (pairing of different types). It could also homodimer (pairing of similar types). If mom like it, she can live in homodimer with me!
