Final year!

Hey there peeps. Yes i am now in final year and i assure you it is not easy people!! I failed my orthopaedics during my fourth year and i had to repeat the posting afterwards. My friends went back to malaysia earlier than i did but i got everything planned out and luckily it did work out.. Hahaa
But that was 4th year...

Now im at the end of my second posting which is anaesthesiology and boy this is super fun. Its a bit tiring becoz we need to travel to the new hospital but its okay coz when we are there, we don't have to worry about not being able to enter the operation theater(we have this problems with Kle hosp). The lecturers are super nice and really helpful and they just wont stop teaching you, which is really awesome!! 

The most awesome lecturer ever.. 1st batch of jnmc and was in africa for 40 years omg.. Super funny and highly experienced HOD. This picture was taken when he was teaching us how to use defibrilator.

First thing to check if you enter the OT area..

Pink scrubs for students by the way.. Hahaha

Guess who get to assist appendicectomy today? None other than our already grown up little boy..

Medical students' handwriting are not that bad

Greetings ��
I know its been a long long time since i last updated my post and i am so sorry for that.
Its been a heck of a ride, fell in love ended up heart broken bla bla bla but that is not the case why i am so eager to write a post today. Haha
Well, as i was trying to learn piano in my friends' room the other day, one of my friend stumbled across a post regarding the notes of medical students. When i first saw it, it is totally absurd and utterly unacceptable with how this person is trying to potray how we do our notes. 
I may sound like im exaggerating but it is really disturbing you know. 
You need to know sir that when you post something like this into a social media, you need to realize that some people might just believe you blindly though what you are really trying to do is to make jokes and hopefully get some of those likes on your fb page. ��
There are lots of misconception about us medical students that society have and eventhough we try so hard to explain, its just not possible to change their mind. 
1. We do care about our handwritings because we need to read it afterwards and believe me, we don't really understand if its just some scribbled lines and some shapes which doesnt make sense or describe the whole picture.
2. Being a medical student does not entirely mean that we are supersmart and  intelligent. There are some geniuses but usually they do work really hard studying.
3. We have our own social life and we do love to mingle and make friends with people from other course. We are not really study zombies(well at least not me��)
4. When we interview patients during clinical session in the hospital, we are not doing it for the sake of just for class, but we do really care about them though we are not yet qualified to treat. We do feel sorry for our patients and try hard to study and give suggestions to the treating doctor of the treatment that we had read from our textbooks and journals. 
5. Some patients which have rare presentations do get lots of visits from different2 students and claim that as if they were being tortured. Well sir and ma'am, if its too much, just tell those who are coming and to my dear colleagues, please understand and let the patient rest. Patients are human beings and they have feelings too. 
6. I cannot say learning medicine is easy nor can i say its too hard. Sometimes its too much to know but somehow at the end of the day, it is the learning process that counts. For me, it is still in par with engineering, education, law, plantation and so much more courses out there.
7. We are humans too and we make mistakes and we sometimes fail. Then again, its not really a failure if you stand up and work harder.

Really guys, we do take notes seriously... Just like how we want to take care of our patients in the future.. Seriously..

Kada kou kosusa magawi koi kodo mosingilo ti. Yoku kodo nga ongkon adalan kapandai kodo walko perlu membaca berjam jam karati nogi komoyon do pongubat��

P.s these are my 1st year notes and believe me i am one of those with terrible handwriting amongst my fellow colleagues. And you should see the girls notes... They are next to typewriting����

Dont give up dear sister!

As I sat on my study table that evening, mom called me and told me about my sister's interview.
Yes it was about emilia-the youngest among 3 of us. She has this dream you see-to be an air stewardess.
She is a very high spirited person(all of us are), though she is not very good academically, but she is a person who works really hard and i think the kindest of us all. 

After finishing her form 5 in a vocasional school(learning bout IT), she voiced out her desire to become what she always wanted, to be an air stewardess. I dont know why, but she seems to prefer Malaysia Airlines. 

Mom said she needed to further till Pre-university or atleast get a diploma. Yet she refused. She said she rather work than going for another year with books.

She loves being beautiful, she likes to groom. While my twin(Emily) is with her books and the television, me with my computer games, Emilia will go and play with my mom's makeup. She gets scolded all the time when my mom noticed that her make up is finishing too fast.

Since the age of 11, she used to participate in beauty pageant during Harvest Festival at my village. She used to get prizes for her beauty, but not brains(lol). Hope she is not upset reading this. hehehe.

Her climax was in the year 2013, before she went to KL, she decided to participate in District's Beauty Pageant. Mom was not confident you know.. seeing the other contestants. All were tall and really beautiful. You know... the skinny legs and body shaped like violin.. 

Emilia was like "I believe that I am beautiful, mom. I have your looks and I promised I will that this is my last participation. No more after this." 
Mom was stunned. Emilia did organized her sentence really well. 

However, she didnt make it to finals. She was just too short compared to the others. lol.

After that, she tried in a walk-in interview in Promenade Hotel in Kota Kinabalu for Malaysia Airlines. Suprisingly, she got to the final stage. She passed all 6 stages and finally made it to the final one. She was really suitable and they would have hired her if not for one reason alone... She was still under aged. She was like persuading those people telling them that her birthday was just within that week, yet she was rejected.
I know she had that potential. 

Hence I googled out a private academy that trains people and opening chances for them to their airline dream. Since this is what she wanted, she gladly accept the plan. Then she was sent to KL for that academy. She went through various interview while she was there but still she was with no luck. 

She took part-time job to cover up expenses and I am really amazed with her being so independent. She finally graduated after 6 months of training. 

Today she went for a walk-in interview again with MAS. This time it was in Kelana Jaya(if im not mistaken). She was really excited and nervous at that time. The details were...

600 candidate, only few will be selected. 9am till 6pm.

I was like "What??!!"
She made it to the final stage, again, this time she was prepared.

Sadly, she didnt get the place.

"They checked my grooming for three times and asked a lot of questions. I couldn't help but to think that they are trying really hard to find my mistake"

"I was not chosen because, I had small pimple behind my back."
That is what she told me. She came home tired, a bit sad. 

All I can tell her is that, "You will get your prize next time. Be motivated, there is always next time."

 Don't get demotivated my sister, I will see you serving customer on a plane sometime soon.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! #manipal

*Jingle bell x2, Jingle all the way~*

Hi there peeps! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2014!

How have you guys been? Gone anywhere for holiday? Both Christmas and new year for me here was great! Surprises from everywhere! greetings from people I have never expected.

This is my 3rd year spending Christmas here in Belgaum. I can say that it gets merrier year by year. I thought of spending it with simple dinner with my roommate but ended up dinner with our "Fellowship".

We had Domino's and Rickkye's banoffee pie for dinner. We had it in the PBL room. Sadly, Frans, Bee and Orissa could not make it.

It had been years since I last decorated any Christmas tree. When Santhana asked me to bring his tree and decorate it there, I was nervous and excited at the same time. You know, I am not very good in decorations, art and stuff. (>.<)

3 years ago, the fellowship consist of only 6 people. Now, it's 12!

The next morning, me and Santhana went to St. Anthony for morning mass. After the mass ended, Sr. Pacifica invited us for breakfast in the convent. How nice of you sister! Lots of love!

There were no alcohol or late night party for our Christmas which I personally prefer. Back at home, people used to take this opportunity to get totally drunk and forgetting what is the true meaning of Christmas.

My ultimate surprise was these cupcake. It was given to me by my friends. Though they are not celebrating it, they gave me this nevertheless. I was touched and truly grateful to be granted such a wonderful and kind friends. I must admit I almost shed a tear or two but certainly not in front of them.. Thanks you guys!



On the 28th, some of us from USMKLE went to Manipal University for annual Malaysian meet #LagendaManipal.

I have to say the ride was bumpy but this guy next to me slept like nothing happened. It was so cold that I was shivering even with my sweater on. 


As soon as we reached the hotel, we rushed to the counter only to find that it was crowded with our friends. It was 6 in the morning. Imagine that...
We were the last to register and the room for double occupancy was totally out. Shame, some of these people wont tolerate to share the rooms even with their friends. They planned to take 4 occupancy at 1st, instead, they took 2 of the double occupancy. Me and Rickkye ended up taking the most expensive room there was. No worries, the room was huge, the view was awesome, we suka and we puas hati with the charge. 

The bed was a bit hard and old feeling but who cares right?

Our next destination was Krisna Ghita Mahadwara, it is situated in Udupi. It is the centre of pilgrimage for Krishna devotee(if im not mistaken). Rickkye enjoyed this place a lot. Let me tell you something, this guy can't resist metal and antique looking cheap stuff. He will be like, "I wanna buy this la... But I also want this... Help me choose. Bhaiya, no discount? 5 rupee oso can..." Then I was like... 5 rupee you can only buy gula2 la wei...


Next up, St. Mary's Island in Malpe Beach.

Maple Beach- Tons of people, rubbish as far as the eye can see, rough waves and not much to enjoy here. We took a boat which cost rs150 per person to St. Mary's Island. No idea of how the name originated but the view of sunset(though the island was full of trash and rubbish) was awesome. How i wish the visitors were more civilised to keep the island return to its former beauty.

Me and my friends. Some of them are single and available with great packages and some are taken. Interested party please pm me. Hahahaha

*COME FORTH SPAWNS OF THE SEA!!(imagine huge waves came from my back after that.)

I always imagined myself waterbending  here... How i wished the lion turtle would grant me that..

The view from our hotel.

My friends participated in some games. Well, *menang kalah adat pertandingan*. I am pretty sure they enjoyed their time(like we did). hahaa


There are reasons for our visit here,
1st: Rickkye wanna meet his exclassmate Rachel and Yash(Chaifong's cousin)
2nd: Malaysian Food!!!

We had our lunch at Asian Delight and subsequently went to have frozen yogurt for dessert. Yet, this is nothing compared to our dinner.

This is by far our most memorable time in Manipal because in Thailin, people like me and rickkye can finally relieve ourselves with our favourite food.


Oh my sasau... How I missed you so dearly... without you I have moonless night and starless twilight. A day is like a thousand years without you. I love you, sasau...

pardon me...

Koupusan ku kangkung, ikau noh kalangadan. tadau om tuong iti ko kasari pomusarahan ku.
(comment if you wanna know the meaning.) hehehe

Thanks guys. You made me end the passing year and start the new year with a very strong, motivating and wonderful experiences. Forget us not!
