my early day in ukm

29th June-4th July
My life in UKM begins... ORIENTATION!!!! Nobody will like it with boring talk, speech, introduction and ragging from the seniors.. Being a junior is not interesting at all, i'm serious.. Well, I lived in Bangi for the 1st week of orientation.. But, I liked the atmosphere in DECTAR where all UKM newbies gathered together for events almost every night. The last night there (Thursday), we got to meet our astronaut, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar (i don't know how to spell his name).. He came to share his experience in the space and his training before he went to the space.. Everyone was really anxious about that.. He was ex-UKM medical student, my senior anyway... XD We used to sleep around 1am or 2am during the orientation week and I had gastric 2 nights there when we were 'tahan' by our senior facilitators at night.. Not very good experience though..

4th July
Wonderful experience.. We moved from Bangi to KL campus for all the students from Fakulti Perubatan, Pergigian, Farmasi and Sains Kesihatan Bersekutu.. 5am, we packed our stuff down and placed it according to the block that we were going to stay in KL later.. Oh ya, our KL hostel name : Kolej Tun Syed Nasir (KTSN).. Then we had our activity called Power Walk.. After that, we moved to KL by bus.. There were 24 buses out of UKM Bangi at once.. Polices stopped d traffic just to let us out.. Really nice experience, felt like VIP.. Haha.. People on the road surely will get mad at us..

7th July - 8th July
The medical students had their faculty orientation in the campus.. Not very fun..

9th July - 12th July
Medical students' PPD (Profesional and Personal Development) camp in Kem Biro Tatanegara, Ulu Kenas, Kuala Kangsar, Perak.. We were sent deep into the jungle of Perak for 4 days, 3 nights.. No handphone signal.. Only at same certain small areas, there are 1 or 2 bars of signal where you can see most of the people standing there smsing and talking on the phone.. The camp was not torturing camp.. It was conducted by the medical lecturers of UKM.. It was a very relaxing camp with 6 meals a day and less physical activity.. What we did were mainly in small group having discussion, critical thinking and small activity.. More on sitting than standing yet we ate a lot.. We slept quite early there (11.30pm) and woke up 6am.. Boring camp..
