Orthopaedics posting

The time passed and the knowledge gained did not feel like 8 weeks at all
But the exhaustion felt more than that
8 weeks straight without any holidays in between except weekends
However, I'm glad that we are done with Orthopaedics posting and miss every specialists and doctors dearly

This is like the bible of the posting for all of the medical students
However, I did not read everything in there just because I'm lazy to do so

It was really a rush for us to gone through 8 sub-specialities in only 8 weeks, which clinically, theoretically and mentally not enough at all
Anyway, all thanks to the doctors that had try to notice us all the new faces every week and guide us through the hectic packed weeks
Very much thank you to my supervisor for Orthopaedics posting, Dr Shaharuddin, a spine specialist for his teachings and may you get well soon!

Our experience in wearing Plaster of Paris cast, which is terribly heavy but it was one memorable moment

Those freezing moment in the Operation Theater seeing different surgeries done

Playing with Sugan's iPad 2 before the clinic session started on the last day of our posting
Spine Team was our original team before the team rotation started
We even have our own nice ward with automatic glass door :)

Get to join in the Rehabilitation Orthopaedics team to have breakfast halfway through the clinic session because there were not much patient that day

Our free late breakfast:
Grape pudding and nasi impit!
Great thing to end the posting

Orthopaedics is fun, but was traumatized by Trauma team (opps, sorry!)

Will only see Orthopaedics again in the exam hall and during housemanship 

Next posting: Paediatrics

Clinique Star Tour 2011 @ Pavilion KL

This is my very first experience in a makeover and it is Clinique Star Tour 2011, yup they are back and here to make every girl looking good again

Venue of choice : Pavilion KL
Date: 23rd July 2011

The crowd at the Clinique makeover booth when I arrived at around 2pm. Got myself registered under blogger for free and was then 114th person for the day because the booth starts at 11am. The normal price for the make over is RM 35 per person. See, there are seats provided for some of the guys there when they are bored waiting for their other half 

The registration booth is getting crowded after lunch hour and I'm lucky enough that I'm in this wave of time. The RM 35 not only for the makeover, there is a door gift worth RM130 of Clinique products. Besides, 3 lucky girls will get a chance to win this Star search and 1 will make it into the CLEO magazine cover

That explains the crowd

Qi Tyng filling in her particular and she was the 116th person for the makeover, duh they skip our number!

A booth set up for door gift collection and sales of Clinique products

Very busy and professional situation inside the makeover booth
Make up, hair styling etc

Finally after 1 hour of waiting down there, I get to set my butt on the waiting couch inside the booth. At least no more standing outside with the umbrella because it is drizzling outside

Firstly, they will analyse our skin type by asking us question regarding our skin and our major concern. I was then analysed as skin type 3, which is combination skin (Oily on the T-zone and cheek area only). Those with make up, they will remove it before cleaning their face. Since I came with naked face, she cleaned my face with Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care System. 

Firstly she cleaned it with Oily Skin Formula facial liquid. Then my face was toned with Clarifying Lotion Twice a Day Exfoliator Type 3. Lastly the 3rd step, the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Next, hair styling station
My hair stylist is super young and friendly. She asked me what hairstyles I want and I told her to decide for me. Then, she explained to me that she will only make slight curl at the end of my hair and wavy curl isn't very suitable for me because my face look too young for those curl
*Awwww, she made me feel so happy that moment LOL*

This is the most relaxing station and the longest one - Make up!
Since I forget to put on my contact lens, I have no idea what did she put on my face, like seriously I can't even see a thing clearly. So, I just sit back and relax until she asked me what eye shadow color that I prefer. I asked her to recommend me the color that suits me and she eliminated some colors. Left behind green and brown palette to choose. I was thinking that green doesn't really suit my outfit for the day, which was a really big contrast. So, I picked brown. Some told me I should pick green for a daring try

Photographer for the day. Teaching me how to pose. Yeah, this is really weird and embarrassing for actually. I never do such photo shoot before and never ever post that way before. He kept push my fringe aside, I presume they cover part of my eyes. But at the same time, I didn't want to reveal too much of my wide forehead.

2 types of pose, 4 photos taken
This is actually lots of FUN!

Then we were asked to choose our most favorite picture to be put on the Clinique Star Tour 2011 gallery in the website. He discarded the other 3 pictures *Give me ma...*

The door gift that worth RM 130
RM 30 Miko Galere voucher
Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care System Type 3 (all 15ml)
Clinique Super City Block 40SPF (7ml)
Lash Power Volumising Mascara, Black Onyx
(Feels really awww after I read Hilda's blog that they got a free CLEO August issue for those who went the next day)

Clinique's range of skin care products on display counter

This is their range of make up products
Inside the glass cabinet are products in sales
I bought one trial set of Blemish Soultion range, which was recommended by the lady that clean my face earlier

A facial and body soap bar

In conjunction with the commitment of Shell to help everyone to go further, Shell FuelSave was designed to save everyone up to 1 litre per full tank, helping all of us to get the most out of every drop of fuel. What so special about the new Shell FuelSave?

*Enhanced with an Efficiency Improver
*Designed to keep engine inlet valves clean
*2X as effective as the previous Fuel Economy Formula
*Feel the benefits even from the 1st tank full

So, on the 6th to 8th July 2011, Shell Malaysia had organized a Shell FuelSave Roadshow at Berjaya Times Square. Not only it makes most Malaysians realized the benefits of Shell FuelSave, Moses Chan, Shell FuelSave Ambassador for Hong Kong made a special appearance at the Roadshow on Friday, 8th July 2011! In the event, he signed autographs for his Malaysian fans (to those TVB lovers too!). Moses took the opportunity to tell his fans about the benefits of using Shell FuelSave 95 and his experience as the Ambassador for Hong Kong as well as how motorists can practice the Shell FuelSave tips.

Moses was in town to attend the Shell Eco-Marathon and Shell FuelSave 1 Litre Challenge in Sepang from Wednesday, 6th July until Friday, 8th july as well. Joining Moses at the event in Sepang International F1 Circuit were Fahrin Ahmad (Shell FuelSave Ambassador for Malaysia), Eunice Olsen (Shell FuelSave Ambassador for Singapore) and Ryan Agoncillo (Shell FuelSave Ambassador for the Philippines)

I was very lucky to be invited to the roadshow as blogger for the event

Moses sharing a few tips to his fan about the benefits of using Shell FuelSave before heading to dinner with the 6 winners of Shell FuelSave activities winners and media

After the roadshow, Moses headed to Dynasty Dragon Restaurant at Level 3 of Berjaya Times Square to dine with 6 winners of the Shell FuelSave Roadshow activities with their partners as well as the media

Here we are in Dynasty Dragon Restaurant
(saw the divider there? We were behind it for dinner)

Before the dinner, Moses posed for the media for some photographs on the stage inside Dynasty Dragon Restaurant

The dinner table arrangement in the restaurant

Moses and media short Q&A session
Moses talked about his 2nd year experience in Malaysia as Shell FuelSave Ambassador of Hong Kong
Besides that, he did talked about his upcoming coffee shop and he promised that Malaysia is where his first coffee shop will be

Moses' happy expression when he was questioned about his coffee shop business, which eventually he said that it is a business secret

Memorable dinner for the night 

We were served with 2 plates of appetizer and chilis for the additional taste for the dinner

Our very first dish for the dinner
Very subtle as the head of the dinner train, which is greatly appetizing
On the most right, the nest-like food was actually filled with cempedak

Herbal chicken soup with fish stomach, scallop and abalone mushroom
This soup taste really sweet from its ingredient, love this max!
With hint of vegetable (the one carved like a flower) and wolfberry

Roasted chicken and pork
The roasted chicken is quite juicy, while on the other hand, the roasted pork was a bit too hard for me

Fried fish and prawns with salad
Not too oily and it is pretty good to eat with the salad (in cubes)
One quite easy going fried food, to date

Fibers for all, vegetables
The taste is okay, however the presentation of this dish isn't very satisfying

The 6th dish, fried mee hoon
I was kinda full when this was served, I did tried a bit
The mee hoon was quite oily to my liking, overall it is just okay

Pau and a mantao-like kuih
Very small and sticky
Not very much of my favorite

The dinner ended with a bowl of tong shui which is pretty soothing to take away all the dinner taste in the mouth. Cold and sweet, wish I have more of this

10-course meal, including the appetizer and tea
Seriously very full!

After taking pictures, some chat and autographed with Moses, it was time to say good bye and leave this a memorable night

Moses, in white holding his mobile leaving the place with body guards. Waved him good bye for one last time and off to home

Winners and medias are given goodie bag!

Goodie bag from Shell FuelSave

Finally, I own a pendrive and it is a very cute one!

Hard cover notebook with very cute drawing!

The very first page was signed by Moses!

And, a very useful container that can be placed in my dad's car next time

Ending this post with a picture with Moses Chan, the Shell FuelSave Ambassador for Hong Kong and TVB star! (Yes Sir, Sorry Sir was his latest series that I watched)

I would like to thank Shell Malaysia and Oglivy for the opportunity to attend this event
