And so, just like that, with the snap of a finger, a blink of an eye, I'm at the halfway mark of 4th year.

3rd year in Aimst University as a medical student wasn't easy, and now halfway through 4th year, I can honestly tell you, it didn't get any better. Its just a flurry of assignments after assignments, classes, hospital teachings, symposiums, viva, bedside, CAs, datelines, logbooks. Its never ending! Sometimes i feel so suffocated with all these responsibilities, and burdens, i just want to crawl under my blankets and hibernate for an entire month. Self declared holidays are a must sometimes to alleviate the tension and the stress.

Books books books!

3rd year was all about Paediatrics, Obstretics and Gynaecology, Forensic Medicine, Surgery, Community Medicine, and Medicine.

4th year on the other hand, requires us to go in depth within each sub specialty like Opthalmology, ENT, Orthopedics, Psychiatry, Radiology, Dermatology, Accident&Emergency, and Anesthesiology, all of which is a hell lot more difficult than subjects in Year 3!

In 4th Year, we get to visit certain sections of the hospital like the Operation Theater, Anesthesia bay, Intensive Care Unit (ICU), certain wards in HSAH, the outpatient clinics, and sometimes the wards in Alor Setar Hospital (Hospital Sultanah Bahiyah) too!

We get special access to their computer to look through case sheets, and management plans. Plus we get to wear special scrubs (like those you see in Grey's Anatomy) when we are on duty at certain locations in the hospital.

Group pic after hiking up a hill to have a look at a dam that supplied water to a kampung.

When we were in Community medicine posting (4 weeks), we get to venture out into the rural areas of Kedah to evaluate and to learn about the health care systems there. We study about the water supply, the sewage system, maternal and child health, geriatric health. And also about disease control, and food quality surveying.... and the list just goes on. An interesting posting albeit a tiring one cause of all the traveling we had to do.

I'm only about halfway through 4th year, but i feel i have aged a good deal lot, but nonetheless gained a lot of knowledge along the way. I just hope the remaining of 4th year will be kinder to me physically and mentally cause i don't think i will be able to survive another pimple popping put of my forehead! (I RARELY GET PIMPLES >.< ).

Hello there!

This blog has been abandoned for far too long! Time to revive it!

Its been bout a year plus since i last did a proper update. Got carried away with.... studies... life... and changes! Life is all about changes no? :D

Speaking bout changes, i've finally gotten around to doing my IC. Not that i lost my old one. I'm just tired of people questioning my identity with questions like "is that really you??" or "you orang asli ka?". The latter is the more famous question. le sigh..

Before. (underexposure)

After! (overexposure. haha)
Staggering difference! Wont say its my best photo, but definitely way better than the old one!

Another change to note, my new Charles and Keith purse! :)

And i finally used RM100 of my book voucher at Popular.



Currently reading The Kite Runner. Yes i know its been out for many years now. Nothing wrong with reading it late. Better late than never! I've only finished the first 3 chapters but i can tell its going to be a good read! :D

But of all changes, there is one that stands out from the rest. However, that, is another story.

cheers! :)
