I should be excited to blog about this because I self claimed myself as coffee freak. I can even doze off halfway drinking coffee. Ever since my final year life being really jealous of the free time I had, I tend to rather rest and do nothing than blogging. Therefore, I'm a bit out of passionate fuel in putting everything into words for my post. Let the picture tells you about this place, ok?

My cousin knew this place in Setia Walk Puchong after she attended an event here

It looks pretty cool for me, even though we were the only customers there at the moment
It was Friday night, most of the people enjoying alcohol downstairs

Le cousin and her bf deciding what to drink and to eat or not

Choices of coffee and tea :)
I wish I can try each of the coffee 

They also have cakes, sandwiches, pies and spaghetti

I had late lunch, by that time I am already hungry
The chicken spaghetti bolognese was all right for me
Not the best that I've ever tasted
The sauce isn't very thick, but I'm glad it is not very sour
The portion was just right for me, but I would be insufficient for guys and big eaters
RM 12.50

My coffee of the night - Ice Blended Irish Cream
The best part is the cream (haha!)
The coffee taste not strong at all, it is a bit bland for me though it is creamy
I guess this was my 2nd time ordering Irish Cream, my first cup was in Garden Lifestyle Cafe, Mid Valley and better

Andrew's mocha

Tyng's caramel macchiato

Chin Han's electro choc

They were switching cups trying each other's coffee while I was wobbling my spaghetti with hunger. Man, I was totally ignored or I was totally ignoring them LOL

That is why I have no comment on their cup of java >.<
So lousy, how to blog...

Last minute study

This week already the last week of my Paediatrics posting
The next time I see Paeds again will be professional exams

Frankly, I'm not ready
I didn't check how much I have cover for Paeds until I took out the guidebook today

Now only I terkejar-kejar want to study Paeds before going to O&G posting next week
In the mess, still got mirror on top of my books!


And I think I have forgotten stuffs in Surgery posting

Since I'm staying in the double room alone, I own 2 tables at the moment
This picture is just random, showing what I did to the other table


Back to my books now, just a brief update

Nike Run 2012: We Run KL

My 5th run ever since 2011

I guess I'm pretty lucky during the registration. I had multiple failed attempts as well while trying to break into the registration using my uni library's computer and siput internet connection.

Though I was able to register, at the same time, I'm quite disappointed with the service and management by Nike. Most of my friends couldn't join the run, which was pretty disappointing. Besides, I was charged twice due to some problems. However, I'm glad I got my refund even though their reply was really late.

To those that starts to boycott the run, I agree that the whole management thing sucks.

Well, since I had register, here's the post about Nike Run 2012: We Run KL
This is my first 10km run!

Getting ready for the race!

Super huge goodie bag
But all the stuffs in this bag tiny itsy bitsy one
It's just the bag that is super dinosaur!
Thanks to Kee Tat for collecting the race pack for me
Thanks to Ie Lane and Siew Im for transferring this dinosaur to my room door!

I was in Teluk Intan during the race pack collection and I reached KL one day before the run

 The goodies inside the dinosaur
For all this and the race t-shirt, it is RM35
I registered under buddy run, RM70 per pair with Ie Lane

One sentence that scare me when I first read it in the pamphlet:
"Race cut-off is 2 hours after flag off (5.30pm). Remaining runners on the route are required to board the sweeper bus due to the requirements by the authorities to expedite the road opening to traffic"

Since I got no training ever since Standard Chartered, it is 4 months if you're curious
So I was like 
"Shit, it is so embarrassing if I was to pick up by the sweeper bus"

Then, I start over-thinking whether will I reach in 2 hours by walking

 This is the D-Tag (Green tag)

I'm very jakun when I first saw this, never use before
This tag will records the time I cross the start line, the finish line and several split times in between
It is to record how lambat I was =.=

The yellow tag is to wear it on the wrist for finisher t-shirt exchange after we cross the finish line

 A blur picture to show my D-Tag!

 Went there with 4 of my coursemates
Left to right: Me, Ie Lane, Hau Wei, Tze Hwei & Kee Tat

All super hebat runners, I feel so tiny and rookie here

 The starting line
We went further to the front after I took this picture

All this while I only join 5km run or people used to call it as Fun Run
So I won't bother to go to the front since our time will be not be recorded

Yesterday was my first time to walk all the way to the front of the crowd with my friends, they are so semangat. Good good ;)

 Since we gathered at the starting line 30 minutes before the gun, group photo!
Love this picture :)

JJ and Ean trying their best to kill our waiting time at the starting line to cheer everyone up

The gun went off at 5.35pm
This is the route to go through by legs, not wheels

I reached the finish line after 1 hour 33 minutes
Due to the super big crowd squeezed in a small area, the queue for mineral water, 100plus & finisher t-shirt was so long that it went all over to the finish line

The moment I was able to squeeze myself to step on the finish line to let my D-Tag time me, it was already 1 hour 35 minutes

meh =.=

 Picture with our finisher t-shirt :)

I had difficulty looking for my friends after the finisher t-shirt collection

The fields are muddy that my shoes stucked so deep in
My shoes! My socks! Ugh...
With all the people wearing the same shirt and all thanks to my poor night vision, it took me really long to find them

The line there was really terrible, I couldn't call anybody
Luckily, text was able to be delivered 

Finisher t-shirt

Tyng laughed at this because it is GREEN
Because I'm a so-called "colourist", I don't like green
But this green is okay, not dark green please...

Phew, finally I made it through my first 10km run under 2 hours with no training at all for 4 months

My feeling post-run:

10km is sooooo different from 5km, way different!

I had abdominal pain after I pass the 2km mark, I walked for a certain distance before I start to jog slowly again

I can feel my leg muscle screaming in pain at 9km, luckily only 1 km left. It is so weird that it was less pain when I jog compared to walking

I aim for a 10 minutes per km pace to make sure I reach before the sweeper bus come take me away, so that I can reach in 100 minutes (1 hour 40 minutes)

I did really push myself in certain part of the route even though there are quite a number of uphill routes, thank God I reached safely with a time that I'm satisfied :)


All 4 water stations (every 2 km) and the route around that area totally flooded by paper cups and the road is so wet

A lot of runners tend to just throw the cup in every direction, I can feel water and 100plus splash every time I passed the water station

There are people complaining that couples that hold hands and took pictures along the race slow down the other runners

There are quite a number of people that stop unexpectedly in the middle of the road to tie their shoelace. I almost bump into one that I have to pull my emergency break. I hope they understand the etiquette of the a race

The queue delay my finishing time!

Mission to upgrade from 5km to 10km in within 1 year accomplished :)

Not Quite "33 Hours" On-Call

PRHO (a short form for Pre-Register House Officer) is what they call us when we are in Paediatrics posting, which means if your team is on-call today, you'll have to be on-call. If you're the incharge PRHO of the week, you'll have to do 24 hours on-call.

Thank God they allow us to have at least 2 people being the PRHO on-call at a time and we are able to arrange shift with each other or go around the clock together, it's mainly our choice.

With a bit of luck, my first on-call as PRHO started yesterday, yeah, SUNDAY! I was lucky because we have a half day compulsory programme for everyone until 1pm, which means I escaped the on-call for 5 hours. Periyah, my PRHO on-call partner and I agree to do it in shift, from 2pm onwards, at least one of us will be in the ward. So, this was how my day went on.

7.50am : Rise & shine!
9.00am - 2.00pm : MeCCa program and lunch
3.00pm - 6.00pm : Spent 2 hours to sleep and 1 hour to get ready for oncall
7.00pm (Sunday) - 5.00am (Monday) : On-call
5.00am - 7.00am : Nap zZzzzZzz (not a really good sleep anyway >.<)
7.00am - 11.00am : Continue my on-call & morning ward round
11.00am - 12.30pm : Went back to shower and have my lunch
12.30pm - 5.00pm : Back to the ward and then went for seminar (My group is presenting, me included!)

A total of 33 hours here with only 4 hours of sleep. Can't imagine what I will turn into if I really go through on-call 36 hours!! But, currently Malaysia hospitals are using shift system.

The happiest moment when the clock strikes 5.00pm. It is the time for both of us to hand over our PRHO on-call job to the other team on-call after that. *Phew* But, I have to resist being too overjoy about that because I have another PRHO on-call day coming up this Thursday.

Didn't really bother taking pre and post-oncall picture of myself because it is something really common in the course. They might point at me and say "Like that also want to show ah?" Haha.. So I better keep the zombie look to myself :P

This is the only part I isn't really looking forward to, entering the working world so fast. However, with God's will, I hope to face this in less than a year from now :)

Korean Cuisine: Restoran Po Cha

Quick post! 

It's 9.42am now, the UKM bus is waiting at 10.30am
I just came back from Teluk Intan yesterday at 2pm because none of my housemate wants to stay there, so I come back to re-wash my laundry again, discard some stuffs
Attached to Hospital Teluk Intan for 3 weeks in Surgery, will still go there in my next time in Paediatrics, O&G and Internal Medicine posting

Even though only less than 24 hours, never fail to call Tyng and Andrew out for a dinner together

Andrew brought us to Restoran Po Cha, a very traditional Korean restaurant
Everything is in Korean
Luckily they have English in their menu

Forgive me that I can't recall the name of the food
I'm typing this in rush!

Tyng and I

This one is really good, not really spicy for me
But really hot!
There are tofu, sausages, cabbages and pork inside

Side dishes

Potato and carrot slices seasoned with black pepper

Ok, me no like this

You just can't miss this, isn't it 

Sausages, simple enough

Eat all that with rice, super yummy!
Their rice is really different from the one I have everyday
But, very filling 

This is the best of the best!
It is a pancake made up of vegetables and seafood
Seafood Pancake!

This restaurant is somewhere near Ampang Point

It costs 3 of us RM62 for this dinner

Okay, 9.51am already, I need to get ready and go now!

Hope I can update during the Raya break :)

Final Year: PPD Camp 3

Before things get serious in hospital, we were sent off to Kem Bina Negara Ulu Sepri, Rembau for our 3rd and last Personal & Professional Development (PPD) Camp for all the Final Year medical students

We had the first one during Year 1 in Ulu Kenas, Perak

We were here in Ulu Sepri on our 2nd camp during Year 3

So, here we are again

No yellow man and Maxis line available here, only lucky Celcom users have full bar!

It was a bit different this camp, the first 3 days were under Biro Tatanegara (BTN)
They gave us talk about our country and introducing us the Perlembagaan Persekutuan with all the Perkara-perkara stated inside

We had morning and evening exercise everyday, divided into groups for small group discussion all about 'kenegaraan' topic

My watch matches with my set of baju kurung
During BTN camp small group discussion, I looked at my watch most of the time, waiting for break

We had no internet connection, no TV here
But, we have 6 MEALS per DAY!

 Our exercise area
Surrounded by trees and trees and trees!
And a river, we even need to cross a bridge to get to the Dewan Makan :)

On the left of this road, stretches of girls' dorms were here!
The guys' dorms were the other side of the camp

We have 146 girls and 89 guys
Yeap, my batch has 235 people

Hopefully all 235 of us will pass as doctors 9 months from now :)

 5A, this was where I slept for 5 nights :)

 Night view of my dorm

 Best friends - Xu Vin & Suganthini
That's my bed 
Blues - UKM's signature baju kurung colour :)

 Went over to 5B for some chat and laughter with friends
Left to right:
Wei Yeng, Yun Ting, Siew Im, Kah Yan, Me :)

Group photo session
My friend sempat lagi take our picture when the people-in-charge busy arranging the others for the session

After 3 days of BTN (finally), the next 3 days were conducted by Faculty of Medicine, UKM
PPD camp 3!
We were still in our group, but this time we were facilitated by HUKM doctors and specialists
So coolio of them to come into the jungle to join us despite loads of work back in HUKM

Oh yea, I'm in Group 8
 Group 8!
My group members and facilitator (in green shirt), Dr. Esa (an anesthesiologist)
This was taken on our last night in the camp

This was taken on Day 4 of the camp
We were given some time to come up with cheers and group flag

Lucky me, my groups had a bunch of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) people
You should see how they were so particular about the flag!
No one can interrupt then or take over their jobs!

Great job!

Day 5 -  Medical Explorace

That explains why we need to come up with cheers and flag!
They even give each group a big piece of cloths for identity
We were free to create anything from it to wear on us during the explorace
 My group weren't very OCD about this
So, we wore it like some pahlawan!

This group was the super creative one!
Look at them, so cool :)

There were 5 stations to run
We started from the furthest station, run run run
Lucky those jogging all these years help!

The first group who reach the finish line are not necessary the winner
It depends on our performances in each station conducted by our doctors

 I've no idea what we were doing that time
I think I'm clapping, but the timing is just so nice that turn me into praying
Yun Ting has the same pose with me at the back XD

 At our 5th station, waiting for our turn

Oh yeah, I forgot to intro my group's name
We called ourselves

The number 8 in the flag was made of 12 orang lidi indicates the 12 of us
Triangle indicates people with triangle personality - with mission and vision (Taught by BTN)

Our camp commandent, Prof Dr Harlina were the one in the final checkpoint waiting for us
She made it like Amazing Race when she announced "You were the 3rd team to arrive"

Overall, we have 20 teams
The color of the identity cloths actually means something
Red, Blue, Yellow, Green
But I'm lazy to explain

A picture before closing ceremony with my pretty 8vengers member, Yun Ting

We were now separated into 5 groups with different posting, each posting 7 weeks
Professional exams will be next April

Time flies
We officially go back to the hospital to face the seriousness
No more ooh ahh-ing
