All right, after the case of exam
Post-exam activity is a must!
After all the :

1. Disappointment
2. Caffeine excitement
3. Sugar rush
4. Brain saturation
5. Neurons depletion
6. Back pain
7. Hand pain from writing too furiously
8. Any pain

Here is the time that let all that to RELAX

The heavy rain is pouring down after my OSPE
It means something, huh?
Something deep into my heart

Kah Yan, Yun Ting, Li Chin, Mei Sung & I
Went all the way to Times Square
to stuff ourselves with sushi
*relieving symptoms no.2, sugar rush*
Plus with green tea
*relieving symptoms no.4 & perhaps 5?

We walked around and planned to watch a movie
So we took a lift way down to 3rd floor to the ticket booth
All the movie starts kinda late
So we cancelled our plan

*It was funny + pitiful when Yun Ting was left alone in the lift when all of us stepped out without realizing she was trapped inside.. Later, after the lift door closed, she was sent up to 10th floor before she got down again* -so BAD la us.. We couldn't stop laughing when we saw her brought up by the lift & got way so high to the 10th floor-

Next station : Sungei Wang, Green Box
The receptionist told us we will have to wait til 6pm (or was it 8pm?)
Plan cancelled

We were deeply desperate to have fun

Next station : Low yat Red Box
It took us quite a long time to search for it
We didn't know how to get to Basement 1
We were stuck in the lift for of people for some time to reach Basement 1
We missed out that level

Finally, we got to sing in Red Box
Student price RM8 each..
What else?
Sing la...!

I am super paiseh in the beginning
This was only my 2nd time karaok-ing
After my super sporting & cool friends singing
I followed to release all the stress
We sang til 8pm

Got our dinner and head back to KTSN
I totally forgot that it was the same day I had my OSPE after singing

All thanks to Yan jie, Yun Ting, Li Chin & Mei Sung

Lunch in Sushi King
Members' month, RM2 each for most of the sushi
I think it was just right after OSPE
I didn't eat a lot compared to usual day

Our mission kind of not very successful
I won't say we failed
Although we didn't succeed to stack it HIGH
We made ourselves happy enough to relieve stress

Kah Yan 'jie'..
See, how serious she is..
*consider she ate all that*

I told ya
See, how happy she is
*yan 'jie', when you see this, don't angry k? I am just helping to promote you XD*



Yeah, this is a late post
I guess it was because I am TOTALLY SPEECHLESS

In my memory, OSPE was something we learned in lab
Practical, meet the expert session (MES)

Reality check!
From GIT to Reproductive system
Most of the slides & pictures were from lecture notes
What the *dot dot dot*

The only fun part was when we changed stations every 4 minutes
Seriously, I really think it was FUN
Even though I didn't get the answer
I love walking around when the bell rings

Clinical !!
Upper limb -Tone, Power, Reflexs
*tendon hammer time*
As I expected, I did not get the brachial reflexes
*but I pretended to be serious*

History taking on GIT case
What is colicky pain?
At this moment, it made me realized that I did not know colicky pain well
I couldn't exactly answer that

PPD station
Gosh, that guy was so hard to be console, man!
His prejudice was so STRONG
For some moment, felt like want to stomp on him
Luckily it was Dr. Heikal as my observer / examiner
He showed me a 'thumb up' after I finished
Thank you, Dr!

Conclusion : This was the fun-nest clinical & PPD stations I ever had... A bit more prepared and relaxed...

This is all about my exam reviews for now...
Hope I don't have to slit in another one..
*praying hard not to resit any paper*

I really wish 203 out of 203 of us will go posting together this June
Till then...

Addiction to dream

Recently, other than facing my lecture notes and no time flipping my books, I tend to waste some of my time browsing through fashion blog.

I started to love them
Almost every single of the clothes, dress
Except leggings..
Maybe someday I will love them

I got so addicted to check a few blogs for prices and types of so-called 'Baju'
So far, I had bought 2 tops from Ladies Fashion & 1 flora top from Hearts Fashion

Addiction, yes it is..

From there, I am thinking to pass my exam
Graduate fast
Earn money
Grab those 'baju(s)' that I really want so badly

And then

bought a FEW wardrobe or maybe a room of baju


All right, should back to my lecture notes
I can see them waving to me

Good Friday

Good Friday is the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on the cross; the day He left His body. It is a historical event. Jesus bled heavily, wearing a crown of thorns, and was nailed to the cross. People spat in His face, condemning Him.

i may not be a Christian..but then...i believe that all religions are one and there is no harm in realizing the divinity in each religion..To my dear Frens..be it Christian or non Christians....please ponder this...

The cross represents several aspects of life. It represents a combination of pain and pleasure, a crossroads, the question: To be or not to be? The cross represents the burden, the heaviness, and the pain of suffering that all of us have in life.

As humans, we have our problems; we have our difficulties. We all suffer. Just as Jesus never complained, but carried the cross to the Hill of Calvary on His shoulder, so should we be able to carry the cross of life. We should be able to shoulder the duality, the ups and downs, the sighs and smiles, the tears of joy and pain alike. We too have to carry this cross of life.

It should be noted that Jesus was not put on the cross for any blunder or mistake He committed. In those days, the tradition was to crucify a person for a crime or sin. And yet Jesus, who was spotless, perfectly ideal, and totally Divine, was crucified. It was a demonstration of how to maintain equanimity. It is open proof of how to maintain balance in life, to accept negative situations, and how to bear pain.

Society may spit on you. Society may condemn you. You may feel pain, over-burdened because of the heaviness of the weight of the cross, and yet you continue to strive. You continue to struggle; you continue to march. You continue ahead, onward, never backward.

Particularly on the spiritual path, we struggle. It is no bed of roses. It is not a comfortable life; it is a challenging life. In material life, you are sure of profit and loss—you may sustain a loss today, but you will receive a profit tomorrow. Success is based on your intelligence, and your ability in management, maneuvering, manipulation, politics and conspiracy. But in spiritual life, these abilities get us nowhere. Indeed, spiritual life is the genuine challenge.

Think of the times when you are totally frustrated, despondent, and depressed, and everybody condemns you. Nobody walks with you, not even a family member stands by you, and you have no hope. God doesn't come stand in front of you and say, “Come on, I will help you.” No chance! He just lets you cry. Spiritual life is a challenge. You have to continue on and on, come what may, in spite of all slander, rumours, condemnation, mud-slinging, and character assassination. Inevitably, these things happen, but we march on.

Jesus looked to the Father, not to the people around Him. He didn't look to those who were attacking Him, the people who were condemning Him, who crucified Him. He looked up, and prayed to the Heavenly Father. That's what we must do today.

Instead, in times of difficulty, we say, “God, what are You doing? Are You on vacation? What are You thinking? What's wrong with You? Why don't You look at me? Don't You feel for me? Don't You see my suffering? Are You not sensitive?” These are the questions that come to our minds when we are suffering. None of us think, “Oh God, this is Your decision. Oh God, this is the design of Your will. This is Your plan. I accept all that happens. Thy will be done.”

Jesus on the cross represents the spirit of surrender, reminding us that man has to look up to God in spite of difficulties, whatever they may be, in spite of any and all physical, emotional, and mental suffering.

Not only did Jesus not condemn those who were responsible for His situation, but He forgave them. He prayed, “Oh God, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Jesus on the cross represents forgiveness.

If anyone says something against us, we wait for an opportunity to pay him back plentifully, with compounded interest! We cannot bear any criticism, so we try to see that he is cut down to size. We want everybody to accept what we ourselves feel, what we do, what we say, but we don't care what the other man thinks. But Jesus forgave.

We don't want to forgive; we want to be forgiven?? If anyone acts or speaks against us, we are not prepared to forgive him—but we want God to forgive us! ”

Judge not, lest thou shalt be judged. Forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Forgiveness from my side is the first step in expecting God to forgive me. Understanding from my side is more important. It is a preliminary requisite I must complete before I expect God to respond to my situation.

To sum up: in one story, Good Friday gives us all the important lessons that Christianity has to offer. The story of Jesus on the cross teaches us about love, sacrifice, human suffering, surrender, acceptance of God's will, and forgiveness.

LOve is God..GOd is LOve...

205th Birthday of Hans Christian Andersen

Actually, I didn't know who is Hans Christian Andersen until this morning

(Saw it when I on my Google Chrome again..*cool*)

I believe (if I am not wrong), this is the Google series of THUMBELINA

Hans Christian Andersen, a Danish poet & fairy tale stories writer..

Famous fairy tales :

The Ugly Duckling
The Snow Queen
The Little Mermaid
The Nightingale

Lots more...

He met Charles Dickens when he first when to England. Dickens published David Copperfield right after he met Andersen. In David Copperfield, featuring a character Uriah Heep was said to be modeled on Andersen.

*amazing huh?*

The Nightingale was based on Andersen's love interest Lind, a opera soprano..

I learned new thing during my study week other than just what is in my notes or books...

Should thanks to Andersen for all the entertainment / fairy tales that I used to like since I was a kid...

Now I know who you are..... *wink*
