Welcome 2008!

well, it's just a few hours to 2008 n i'm at home, listening to Enchanted OST "that's how you know" while waiting for azie to get ready bcos we're going to the hospital!! derh.. what a way to celebrate new year, rite? but i dun mind, at least i can learn something (hopefully) instead of staying at home and think about 'unnecessary' things that bugging my mind since yesterday. errgghh.. been thinking about a lot of things rite now. n end up by hating myself :(

2007- what have i done so far? my achievements? if, IF i can change things, what i want to change to make my life better? hmm.. a lot i guess. i'm not complaining about my life, but sometimes we do think about it and in the end, like i said, we, or at least me, tend to hate ourselves.. haih.. quote from Mr. Lionel; "life is never easy" is sooo true. the solution; forget about the problem for the time being. everybody have their own problem, it's just depends on how ppl cope with it in order to survive <-- from Fadzil..

* this entry is edited after i came back from the hospital

yeah! me n azi really 'celebrate' our new year countdown in the hospital, with some patients n nurses. unfortunately we can't really see good visible fireworks in seremban town. sad lah.
so, what did i learn tonite?
1. well, i got to see how OGDS is done. a quick one in the ward. no need to go to the endoscopy room :)
2. insertion of central venous line, but only half way, or shud i say, the last quarter part of it. this one particular doctor did not allow us to see cos she said, 'boleh kuar kejap tak, kitrg nk buat prosedur'.. err.. that's what we want to see actually!! (menjerit dlm hati je la)
3. a 7 year old kid came with swollen (L) elbow and wrist. he fell down and broke his humerus. waa.. his xray of the arm/forearm clearly showed the fracture!
last but not least, i sort of touring all the surgical wards. obviously azi was the tour guide la. me? a lost student doctor came from andalasia! ahaqs!! (andalasia is the country where giselle the princess in the 'enchanted' movie lives in. i'm hooked to the OST already. n hv finished downloading the movie. yea!)

naughty phone

well, i went to class today, with new spirit. yeah! i'm in surgery posting rite now, for about nx 7 weeks (we have too many hols in between, almost every week). yep.. teruja utk masuk OT.. x sabarnyeh!

then, i started to ask for everyone's phone number. i kinda 'lost' almost all numbers last week n yesterday. how? hmm.. i also dunno. on ry hj, my phone suddenly showed 'phone start-up failed. contact the retailer'. i tried averything to switch it on but failed. so i asked ukoduko to send it to the shop to fix it. in the meantime, i used najwa's hp, without any contact number. all my contact numbers r in the phone itself, not in the simcard. haih.. sape hntr msg pon sy x knal, main reply je, ahaqs!!

a few hours before i came back to seremban i got my hp back. alhamdulillah, it can b switched on. but i lost all the contact numbers bcos they re-format the hp. it was empty. sgtla sedey. when i reached home in srmbn, i restored my phone'c content from my pc. luckily i did a back-up, more than 1 year ago la (may '06). so, all the numbers i have now r 'old' numbers. no newer friends' number. huhu~ sedey.. all the messages yg best2 pon ilang gak :(

ukoduko and me, at KTM's station. [saya yg x serik naik tren :)]

forsythia's advice: kwn2, buat la a back up sblm menyesal di kemudian hari. and always update the back up. if anything happen in the future, xdela ilang the contact numbers. n do remember all the important numbers, someone very close to you, esp family's number. (speaking from the experience, hehe).

x sabarnye nk masuk OT (*_^)V

kisah malam raya

first of all, SALAM AIDILADHA to all my Muslims frens!! alhamdulillah, this time I got to celebrate it wif my family, tho not completed coz duis is in Indonesia (raya there, doing his 'minor surgery' on his toe due to ingrown toenail which i diagnosed w/out seeing it but he kept on saying it's not) and syukur a.k.a. banchik was in KL, raya-ing there wif my mom's side due to some reasons. well, I nearly have to raya in KL also, thanx to my not-so-good schedule.. huhu~ taubat xnak buat lg dah :(

duis n me

banchik n me

it all started like this. I bought a train ticket KL-BWORTH on the nite of raya itself, 8.45pm 19Dec. I was soooo happy to go home (after being in seremban for quite long). on the day of 19Dec, we had 2 MCQs exam for Internal n Family Medicine (gosh, intrnl med was sooooo hard, I felt like crying while doing the paper, seriously!). after the intrnl med exam, we had debriefing of Family Med posting wif Dr. LKY. it ended at around 5.15pm. my initial plan was to go to KLSentral by 6pm, by komuter or car, and reach there early so that I can jalan2. well, I followed my plan, I tumpang cik nabia's car to KL. she planned to drop me at any putra lrt station on her way home la.. we made our move at 6pm.. we followed the plan rite?

ahah.. there it goes! KL was soooo jammed!!! we were stuck on the road for nearly 3 hours ok.. argh... jam sudah menunjukkan pukul 8.15, n we r stil in the car sumwhere in ampang. I know, I can smell it, I am so gonna miss the train n raya in KL, without baju kurung!! (cos I din bring back any bj kurung, they r all at home).. but nabia was stil optimist. "insyaAllah farah, ko sempat punya. aku antr ko kat station lrt yg paling dkt ok. jgnla nanges, nnt aku kalut" err... I knew I was soo late already, mmg rasa nk nanges. Aiyaa.. sabar farah.. then, we decided to drop me at KLCC cos that was the nearest station at that time. We reached KLCC at 8.30pm (I knew I was late already. But who knows the train depart a lil bit later than scheduled kan? Stil hoping and praying) I managed to buy lrt tix n got into the lrt quite fast. But the intercity train was faster. I mean, I was late la.. I reached KLSentral at 8.55pm, 10 mins later than the schedule. ARGHH! Sangat tertekan! I already msg sigers@ijat, the ‘bee-phobia’ cousin, asking him where r they meeting tonite, coz tomorrow opah wl celebrate raya in KL. (see, I already have plan B tanpa disangka2). But stil, if possible I dun want to raya in KL!!

Feeling down, stressed, hopeless, (all the negative words laa), I walked towards the toilet. N tadaaa!! Guess who I met? An angel, hehehe…she is afifah, my junior back in TKC, a known penangite. As a good senior, I tegur her la, asked whether she’s going home for raya n all. And it happened that she’s going home to penang too!! With her brothers, by car. Alhamdulillah… God luvs me. She asked me to tumpang her. Yeah.. hati berbunga2. I dun have to raya in KL. Sengih dari telinga kanan ke telinga kiri. Sgt happy. X terkata apa2 dah. So, here I am, in Penang already!! I reached my home at 5am 20Dec, half an hour earlier than if I take train. Alhamdulillah…

Next morning, pagi raya, I went to all my aunties/cousins houses at kampung blkg umah. Their 1st question was, “farah, hang tinggal tren ka, tren tinggal hang?” aduh! Saya sgt malu!! Ahaqs! Satu kampong da tau.. adei.. mana nk letak muka ni.. huhu~ tp xpe, it shows that they all luv me, ye x?

Hmm.. esok finaz@kakchik, my bestest cousin from father’s side is getting married. Nikah je la, the kenduri is sumwhere in feb 08, dunno whether I can b there or not. This is one of the reasons why I’m so determined to come back to penang this time. Seronoknyeh!! Tumpang happy for u, finaz!!

p/s 1: Azi, akhirnya sy berjaya sampai ke KLCC dan melihat krismas tree tertinggi tu. Da x kempunan dah ahaqs!!

najwa n me
p/s 2: all of sudden my handphone x bley on. i'm using najwa's hp now. all my contact no r in the memory card n since najwa's hp is not compatible with mine, i kinda lost all the no la. so, any1 msg me now plis put ur name too ok. hmm.. is this the sign for me to hv another hp? hehe..

ayat ayat cinta

hm.. while trying to do my case report, i saw oja's status in YM bout this muvie "ayat ayat cinta". it's coming out in Indonesia nx week! will it reach Malaysia? n if it does reach Msia, will it b showed in SEREMBAN? (hehe.. good question)

well, it's a muvie based on a novel by Habiburrahman el-Shirazy. a very great book actually. mmg menusuk sampai ke lubuk kalbu, best bangat. nak tau cite ni cm mana, kena baca buku dia la. mmg x rugi beli or baca. seriusly. mula2 masa Azi beli, dia x baca lagi, she put the book atas coffee table dpn tv. everyday i jus looked at the book, selak sikit2 je. then, bile da dkt nk mock OSCE, terasa stress. so, bila ada novel dpn mata tu, terasa nak baca la. bile da start baca, can't stop!! even mock OSCE esok je pon, stil nak continue baca, itula penangan buku tu. betapa best nye la kan.. hm.. kesimpulannya, i finished the book 1st b4 the owner, ahaqs!! sori Azi :) tu la, sape suruh hang letak atas meja tu? hehe..

anyway, we (sem6 seremban ppl) r having exam nx week. mine in less than 24 hour from now.

monday (17/12): clinical exam for family medicine.
wednesday (19/12): MCQ for family medicine + internal medicine.

gud luck to me n my frens (esp azi, nabia, iffah, fiza, ali n fadzil, n other c207)!!

...And unto everyone who is conscious of God, He [always] grants a way out [of unhappiness], and provides for him in a manner beyond all expectation; and for everyone who places his trust in God He [alone] is enough. Verily, God always attains to His purpose: [and] indeed, unto everything has God appointed its [term and] measure. 65:2-3

thursday (20/12): aidiladha.. (yea, x sabar nak balik!)
saturday (22/12): someone is getting married. congratulation to her!!

Thursday, December 13, 2007


Miss NFA, 22 year old uni student went to palliative ward round with Dr. R today. at first, the palliative session was held at the Klinik Unit Palliatif, ground floor. a handsome palliative care specialist, Dr. RL from Selayang Hospital came over to join them. there, they saw a few patients with advance cancer. after that, they went to 6th floor to see another patient. Miss NFA started to have 'strange' feeling. then, they went down again to see next patient. while standing and listen to the handsome Dr talking, Miss NFA started to feel giddy, her vision became cloudy and she felt unstable. she went to a corner and sit down on a chair (luckily there was a chair, if not, i think she will pass out). all her friends said that she looked very pale. after another half-an-hour talk by Dr. RL, NFA felt better. with the help from her friend, Miss NIMA, they used the digital BP set to check NFA's vital signs.
BP: 89/61mmHg, pulse rate:88 bpm. according to her, that was the lowest BP reading she ever had, n it was a first attack. no history of loss of consciousness before. she is actually fasting today.

Dx: pre-vasovagal attack
it can happened after standing for too long, due to reflex bradycardia +/- peripheral vasodilatation. (luckily she realized what was happening. if not, there wl b an admission to casualty)

DDx: hypoglycaemia
boley ke? our body has its own way to counteract low blood sugar such as lipolysis, glycogenolysis, proteolysis n gluconeogenesis. this NFA is not that thin, she has a lot of fat n protein to b burned up, ok.

comment from Miss NFA: "x penah2 sy jd macam ni. seb baik sy sedar cepat. mmg kelabu la pandangan sy, n it happened gradually. sakit kepala xde tp rasa mcm blood vessels mengembang dlm otak. xde lak rasa nk muntah, tremor, palpitation, sweating, or lapar ke. agak terkejut la, 1st time kan. owh, cmni ke rasenye nk pitam. slalu sy je yg tnya patient all the symptoms/signs of syncope, which can b caused by many things. now i know how it feels. n it is not nice at all :( Alhamdulillah, sy da ok skrg"

within your family in the early stages but you will put up with everything.. You have the strong word power, pretty happy face.. so wherever you go always you have got what you wanted!!! And from the birth always wanted to work hard in order to achieve something.. You will not get anything without hard work!

Generally you are not a cool person. It's not easy thing dealing with you. A tough player you are! But once you like someone's attitude! then here you go, what can I say? It will be a lasting friendship. You always have respect from others. Your life seems to have lots of worries and problems but sure they won't be long.. You will always have brilliant kids!!!

You are very stubborn too, very hard working but unlucky in important
matters in life, very cool, helpful, you have rough word power..Might
put lots of people away from you, you may cause nuisance to others if you are a man, and you often understands others and their problems well. If you are a girl you are very good with studies and arts. If you are a guy you spend most of the time after girl friends (almost) at times, you will have sort of too much fun life with mates & girls. Your friends will spend your time & money and get away with their life and you will become empty handed and don't know what to do.. So be careful!! You love to spend anyway!!! Your good will is you are always there to help family and friends. Tell you what you people are little gems! specially the girls.. You always fall in love in younger age as well. You often live with disappointments, for an example you have got a degree in some thing..but you will be unemployed.. or will do very ordinary jobs.

You will be famous if you open up a business, get involve in share dealings, music etc.. Very popular with sense of humour ,you are the one your friends and families will always ask for help, and you are the one actually get money on credit and help your friends. You will have more than 1 relationship, but when u get settle down you will be a bit selfish anyway. Coz your other half will have a pretty good amount of control in you, be careful! You tendto go for other relationships! Contacts even you are married at times 'coz your popularity.. You are someone who get along with anyone coz the number 5 is the middle number.. Changes & freedom lovers you are! You are an explorer with magic on your face. You learn your life through experience and it's your b! ! est teacher!!!

beautiful girls and guys, popular and more than lucky with anything in
your lives. All the goodness does come with you. Your mind and body is just made perfect for love. You are loveable by any other numbers. But if you are a number 6 man, you will experience kinda looks from most girls and will involve in more than few relationships until you get married. If you are girl, most of you will get marry/engaged early. You are! a caring person towards your family & friends . If you miss the half-way mark then you are about to suffer physically and mentally. Generally you will lead a very good inner-home happiness with nothing short of.

You are a very strong personality, there's no one out there will understand you. You are very good at pointing your finger at some thing and say "this is what".

You often suffer all the way in life. The problems will not allow you to study further, but you will learn the life in a very practical way. You are the one who will fight for justice and may die in the war too. You are normally very reserved with handful of friends and most of the time live life lonely and always prepared to help others. Well, once you get married (which is often
late) then your bad lucks will go away a bit and you become safe. You will face un-expected problems such as : the error, government, poisonous animals, accidents. You are some one with great discipline, persistence, courage, strength which will take you to success. You are a great part of a family team. You are a fighter!
Your Best match 1 ,4, 8. Good match 5 !!!

No 9
Hey, you guys are the incompatible people in the world. You are so strong, physically and mentally. You are often having big-aims. You will work hard and hard to get there. Normally you suffer in the early age from family problems and generally you will have fighting life. But when you achieve what you have done, it's always a big task you have done! You are so much respected in the community, you are a person who can make a challenge and successfully finish the matter off. You are very naughty in your younger age, often beaten up by your parents and involve in fights and you seemed to have lots of injuries in your life time. But when u grow you become calm and macho type. Love is not an easy matter for you. You are good in engineering or banking jobs coz people a! lways trust you. Your family life is very good, but will have worries over your children. You r such qualities are humanitarian, patient, very wise & compassionate. You are born to achieve targets and serve ev! ! ery one all equally without any prejudice. You are totally a role model to anybody in the world for a great inspiration.
Your Best match 3, 5, 6, 9. Good match 2

If U were born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, 29th of any month then U r NO 2 ...

No 7
You have got the attraction to anyone out there, you are realistic, very confident, happy, such a talented individual with your education, music, arts, singing, and most importantly acting too. You have real problems with bad temper! If you are a girl, you are popular with the subjects listed above. You give up things for your parents. I mean you value your family status a lot, you will be in the top rank when you reach a certain age. If you are a guy you are popular with girls, you are a very talented too. Most of the number 7s face lots of problems with their marriage life. Only a very few are happy. You have everything in your life, but still always number 7s have some sort of unfullfilness, such worries all their lifetime. It's probably the Lord given you al! l sort of over the standard humans talents and you are about to suffer in family life. So you need to get ready looking for a partner rather than waiting. If you don't, then you might end-up single. So take ca! ! re with this issue, ok? You are wonderful, friendly, artistic, happy person. You are born to contribute lots to this world!!!
Your best match is 2. Good matches are 1,4 !!!

err.. best match is 2? let's see.. born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, 29th of any month

No 2
No matter what, you will be loved by every one coz your ruler is the Moon and every one loves the Moon. Well.. you are a person who day dream a lot, you have very low-self confidence, you need back up for every move in your life, you are very much unpredictable. Means you do change according to time and circumstances, kind a selfish, have a very strong sense of musical, artistic talent, verbal communication. Your attitudes are like the Moon, comes to gloom and fade away so everybody can expect changes in you. You can be a next Mahatma Gandhi who does peace love or you can be a Hitler who wants to destroy the man kind and peace (I mean in the community and your own home).
If you really have a deep thought about your own believe in God you can
feel the difference which will make you stronger! Most of the time your
words are a kind of would be happening true! So without any knowledge
you can predict the situation.. You will become poets, writers, any
artistic business people! You are not strong in love, so you will be there and here till you get marry.. If U r a girl you will be a responsible woman in the whole family. If U r a man you will involve in fights & arguments in the family or vice-versa. Means you will sacrifice your life for the goodness sake of your family...You are gentle, intuitive with a broad vision, a power behind the scenes, well balanced People!!!
Your best match is 2 ,5 ,9 no other people can put up with you !!!

olorh.. tipu je nih..

1st aid & emergency rescue training camp

i'm having generalized myalgia n goldfish+panda's eyes rite now. but i really had fun n gained a lot of experiences during this so-short-24-hours camp. so short yet sooo long. seriously! it was held at Hutan Rekreasi Seremban. i never knew there is such a calm n greeny place in seremban tho been staying here for long time... (*_*)V

at first, there were supposed to be 40 ppl from IMU Srmbn coming to this camp. 12pm friday, only a few ppl turned up at the camp, plus 10++ ppl from IMU BJ. haihh.. nvr mind la tho Dr. Maha (a surgeon at HTJ, a.k.a pengarah bhgn paramedik, emergency rescue services, ERSM) targeted 70 ppl to join. all in all, about 27 ppl joined it. bravo ppl!! not many IMU students r as tough as us, ahaqs!! (excluding all the sick n having exam ppl la)

2pm: our 1st activity was 1st aid lecture by Dr. Maha himself. short but precise. then, we moved to the car park area for 'fire fighting introduction'. we did learnt how to use fire extinguisher n practiced it, n also carrying long fire hose. the hose is soo heavy. when it came to carrying hose practical, I mengelat, hehe.. so, I din do it. jus took pict, pura2 je :)

sempat posing lg nih.. ngehe

pura2 je nih, x buat btol2 pon, ahaqs!

*I remembered I did the fire fighting using long hose during school time, in KPA. it was great!! went to a KPA camping in Ulu Bendul, compete with other school, n compete with boys! we r proud wif our all girls school :)

fiza, me, ifa, nabia n azie. kanak2 periang C207

5.30pm: after finishing the firefighting intro, we moved to amphitheatre for 1st aid practical. yeah! sgt seronok!! we learnt (again) primary survey+CPR, secondary survey, Mx of fracture n immobilization of spine, and bandaging. (i luv bandaging station.. CPR stat also la..hehe)

8.30pm: there was a talk by a senior lecturer from Sedaya Uni College on 'Maslow's Hierarchy of needs'. hmm.. when will i reach the 'self-actualization' phase eh? or shud i rephrase it, will i ever reach the 'self-actualization' phase? hmm.. sumthing to think of.

the tough gurls from c207 n c107.

10pm: after that, we played a game (is it a game anyway?). we were folded and hv to move in a grup n find the largest diameter tree in that area with a long rope as a guidance. (err.. can any1 tell me, whut is there purpose of this game?)

11pm: i thot the game was the last actvt for the day as i was already exhausted, hungry n slepy. i was totally wrong!! we went to amphitheatre again for 'knot tying workshop'. we learnt how to tie 12 different knots in less than 2 hours. argghh.. we r medical students, so lembab to get it! the only important knots we med students hv to know r ikatan buku sila n bunga keti. but it was fun la. who knows we might need them in future rite?

1am: we had BBQ; sausages n chicken wings. sedap! sambil mkn, we chit chatted with surgeons n other fasi. get to know some of their life experiences. maybe i won't get the same chance like them, but it's nice to listen to other ppl's life to broaden our view of life. if not, our world will b just rigid, dull n boring.

2.30am: went back to chalet to rest n clean up. nx actvt wl b at 3.30am. so, after cleaned up, i took some rest n practiced knots bcause there wl b an exam nx morning.

3.30am: went back to secretariat for nx actvt. dunno wut is it so just waited there. while waiting, terlelap kejap. soo tired!

4.50am: we had scenario sessions game; a patient had fallen from a tree. we had to find her, and transport her to a safe spot. imagine that we had to immobilize her properly, n bring her to many stations according to the clue. we carried her for about 2-3 km. sgt penat!! finished it by 7.30am kot. already had more-than-fine tremors after finishing it. not forget to mention, we sweat very much. BO (body odour) sume org sgt la .... ahaqs!

8.30am: another practical session for patients transportation.

my 1st attempt to lift it up was a failure.. hehe

all exhausted faces.

10am: we had an exam! 3 papers! 1 from jbtn bomba, 1 from the knot tying fasi, n 1 for 1st aid exam. our brain boiled after so much physical actvt. that was so turturing us, physaclly n mentally. nvr mind la. another few hours to go home~

wif Dr. Maha n Dr. Mohan, the backbone of this cool camp

11am: yeah.. the real fun time! we managed to do flying fox. sgt seronok!

12.20pm: closing ceremony 1pm: i did the fying fox. again :) then, balik rumah!!! sampai je umah, i took lunch, showered, solat n sleep n sleep n sleep. sgtla penat. never x tido more than 24-hours ever in my life. huhu~ so kena ganti balik sleep debt. i think i already ganti balik all the debt ystrdy evening n las nite. now, i'm still having myalgia. wut i need now is a good massage.. hmm..

*all my thanks to Dr. Maha, Dr. Mohan, Dr. Iswaran, Dr. Chan, En. Rahman, En. Din, n other fasilitators from ERSM (emergency rescue services malaysia) n bomba for organizing this camp. it is such a pleasure n great experience for me. i did enjoy it very much! :)

hmm.. half day in MCH (maternal n child health) clinic made me think a lot of non-answerable questions.. ngehehe.. questions like, who will b my future husband? (dingdong) how will i look like when i'm a mother? or during pregnancy? am i competent enuf to start a new family? hmm... dunno la. sumtimes when i start to think of these sorts of questions, wl end up by no conclusion :) it's not worthless to think, jus we dunno wut wl happened in the future.. unpredictable. we can jus plan..

where is ur red ribbon?

today is Dec 1, World AIDS Day. need not to elaborate more i think. jus giving some statistics on current update.

Every 7 seconds someone contracts HIV.
Every 11 seconds someone dies from AIDS.
Number of people with HIV in 2007:
33,200,000 total
30,800,000 adults
15,400,000 women
2,500,000 children
Number of AIDS deaths in 2007:
2,100,000 total
1,700,000 adults
*data source: UNAIDS 2007

Number of people living with HIV in Malaysia: 69,000
*source: UNAIDS 2006 Global Report

well, that's A LOT. yg kesiannya, ramai kanak2 yg dpt from ibu, n ibu2 yg dpt from husband. salah siapa? no answer. yg pasti, we can make a difference. many of us have stigma against HIV+ve patients. even some student doctors also are scared to go to patient if they know he/she has it. it shud not happened actually. they are human being also, with feelings. stigma against them is not fair. sbb tu, they prefer ppl not know if they hv it. i think stigma kill them more than HIV itself.

hehe.. a funny story. i bought this t-shirt from IMU crusAIDSers last year. i bought 2 actually, 1 for me n 1 for Duis a.k.a abang. he told me, 1 day he went to a shop. when he wanted to pay at the counter, the cashier gave him a wierd look. he wondered why. he then realized that he was wearing the red t-shirt. huh~ ape la cashier tu.. jahil. even if my brother has it, the virus won't fly to u la.. ish3.. this shows how general Malaysian population r stil ignorance about HIV/AIDS..

RED RIBBON: The color red was chosen for its, "connection to blood and the idea of passion -- not only anger, but love, like a valentine," Today the Red Ribbon has become an international symbol of solidarity and support for people living with HIV. Wearing a red ribbon is a simple and powerful way to challenge the stigma and prejudice surrounding AIDS .Wear yours with pride this World AIDS Day.

moral of the story: spread the love. dun discriminate. we can make a difference :)
