khamis mlm jumaat.. masih sejuk..

cakap-cakap maestronine

brrr.. it’s super-duper ****-ing cold out there.. it’s a cliché really but who cares.. care bears [lame.. lame ma lame.. best dow cartoon die].. both malam ameen and shahid tersangatlah kesejukan.. dan malam ini pun sebegitu rupa.. persistent cold and constant in nature.. oleh itu mari kita sama-sama memikirkan jalan penyelesaian / the management.. so what are the options to keep ourselves warm??

  1. let nature takes its course.. layan je lah sejuk tu.. best ape.. lambat laun bila proses adaptasi dah berlaku.. maka secara tidak langsung, sedikit sebanyak kita akan rasa bahang kepanasan.. ada logiknya.. from the practical point of view, not so kot.. bear in mind though, “cold can kill”..


  1. pasang lah heater.. straight forward answer.. no rocket science.. then kite boleh continue activity malam seperti study, layan internet, bace blog, bukak facebook, tgk video, tgk movie, tgk series etc2.. blh jgk tgk rembulan serta bintang2 menikmati keindahan alam semesta.. sambil layan jiwang sket.. tanpa kerisauan dan kekusutan melanda jiwa memikirkan kesejukan yang bangat..


  1. zezeze.. especially di bawah duvet >15.0 tog +- electric duvet +- fleece.. memang mantap.. x kisah lah kul brape kan.. lagi pun esok dh tgi Friday so ape salahnye berehat awal skit.. melayan mimpi indah lebih lama.. nice.. marvelous..


  1. bagi yang sudah mengikat hubungan dan membina masjid (selepas memberi mas kawin dan hantaran yang berpatutan yang dipersetujui kedua belah keluarga tanpa membebankan mana-mana pihak), ada option masa tambahan.. yakni boleh je peluk2 bermesra2.. hugging menghugging.. kalau dlm ym “>:D:<” [blh buat byk2 nnt klua byk2..].. dengan perlakuan yang telah disebutkan itu, ia mungkin akan lead to aktiviti dan pelakuan yang lebih mantap dan panas.. terpulang kepada pasangan masing2.. lagi pun khamis malam jumaat.. nice.. orang kata sangat afdhal (xtau kesahihan nye, boleh betulkan jika x betul).. itulah advantage nye kalau settle pasal mas kawin dan hantaran cepat2.. sweet.. fabulous.. panjang plak option D ni eh..


  1. other – please specify..

so terpulang lah kepada para pembaca sekalian.. pilihlah option yang dirasakan paling sesuai dan appropriate.. option penulis ni bukan betul sangat pn.. or kalau ade jawapan tersendiri, boleh lah bulatkan E lantas memberi jawapan anda untuk konsiderasi pihak lain.. x perlu yg complicated sgt nk handle kesejukan dan keheningan malam ni.. tiada tarikh tutup penyertaan.. jawapan sendirian berhad adalah muktamad.. enjoy the rest of the night.. take care lads..

Malam Rabu Shahid sejuk jugak....keh keh

cakap-cakap shahied

I almost feel embarrased to post something  trivial as there's a really hot discussion going on down there about cost of getting married nowadays.. 

Kudos to Ameen. Who could predict rupe2 Ameen diam2 ubi berisi (although he's not that 'berisi')

Thanks to those who gave their insight and opinion on this matter and do keep giving em'. lets see how long the discussion could last?

But alas i still have to carry out my duty as a member of 75 to post on Wednesday. 

Sooooo... what did i cook today?                    KARI AYAM THAI            wanna know the recipe? i'll tell u at the end of the post ok?

As i promised, here are the pics from saturdays' Dublin games.


Team Cork 2008:   Theva, Ameen, Wami, David, Pe'e
Lutfi, Shahied, Nik Fathul

The Other Cork Team

Pe'e menggunakan teropong ajaib utk mencari bola..

salam...(malam ni -2 darjah celcius beb!)

ok aku terbace satu isu kt blog kawan aku pasal...
kos perkahwinan! haha. bile ingat2 balik, menatang ni aku dah borak kat msia.
mari kita berckp pasal "kos hantaran"

bab hantaran ni bes kalau borak2 ngan pompuan ... ye la sebab pompuan (n her family) yg biasenye tetapkan hantaran ni. diorang bole la bagi 'excuse'. ade sorang kawan aku tu (harap2 die x baca post ni hehe) siap tetapkan rm20k! PERGH! cekik darah! hoi pompuan (dan keluarganya)!..kesian ar kt kami2 jejaka yg xdak duit lagi!

bayangkan, kalau kerja kt msia.. gaji starting rm3000. tolak duit kete, umah, makan, tax, etc2.. ade la tinggal rm1000 utk simpan.. biler nak kahwin beb. tu baru hantaran. belom kenduri kahwin. memang kene buat bank loan utk kahwin.

lain la kalau mamat tu kaya n duit berkepuk dlm bank (...tapi izad?..). Tapi yang aku dapat tau, kalau pompuan tu grad dari luar negara, hantaran mmg kene lebih rm10k. betul ke? ke bende ni ikut culture/family tradition/tahapeape?

so bagi aku pihak pompuan yg tetapkan hantaran mahal2 ni... memang mengugut la. aku bole terima lagi kalau rm10k hehe. laki2 lain cane?

cane pompuan2 di luar sana? rm10k tu biase ke? mahal ke? ke cket je?

Crazy Dublin Car Trip. tapi Ameen...?

cakap-cakap izadiskandar


5 things you need for a Dublin car trip:

1. A car - Driving up and down dublin is way better than paying e17 for a sleezy bus ride. And the feeling of being behind the wheel going 140-160 km/h in the morning darkness is amazing. and becoming the navigator for the journey home is not bad either.

2. ikaraoke + ipod - Nothing beats boredom than listening (and joining) friends singing their hearts out to our favourite songs in mine & aiman's ipod. With the ikaraoke sending FM frequencies to the car radio, other cars can pick it up too.. especially Patricia/david's car behind us!

3. SatNav/GPS- Now, benda ni tak ada pun takpa. Tak berguna pun. But it is fun to laugh about when the gps is confused which road we are on, and it's trying desperately to steer us back to their programmed roads. "Calculating.. calculating... make a right turn at next exit.. turn right and at the next roundabout take 1st exit.. turn now.." ermmm NOT. Suka ati aku la nak gi mana!

4. Food - this is self explainatory. Now, imagine what the reststop was like. Rasanya brapa orang yg kena berhenti reststop? Soalan cepumas ni.

5. FRIENDS - que sound effect "awwwww". This is by far the most important thing to bring to Dublin, or anywhere as a matter of fact. Together we rock dublin.

Give particular attention to the guys at the back seat.. and shahid.

p/s: A good birthday this year. Thank you all for the wishes, cards, cakes and presents. appreciate it. ~hugs~

cakap-cakap izadiskandar



Umbrella -


You have my heart
And we'll never be worlds apart
May be in magazines
But you'll still be my star
Baby cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there
With you I'll always share
Because

[Chorus]
When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

These fancy things, will never come in between
You're part of my entity, here for Infinity
When the war has took it's part
When the world has dealt it's cards
If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart
Because

You can run into my arms
It's OK don't be alarmed
Come here to me
There's no distance in between our love
So go on and let the rain pour
I'll be all you need and more
Because

It's raining
Ooh baby it's raining
Baby come here to me
Come here to me
It's raining
Oh baby it's raining

ahhhh....again.... the Praise... the kudos!... the acclaim! ....the applause!.


what is the appropriate response following a complement? do u bask graciously in the limelight? or do u mumble & fumble for words? do u treasure the moment of glory? or do u shrink in embarrassment?

when people have trouble accepting praise, it is usually evident. some feel awkward and undeserving while they mumble some meaningless reply and quickly vacate the scene. some resort to a self-deprecating attitude, saying things such as "It was nothing, really." some get pompous and use praise as a springboard for bragging about their other achievements.

how u accept praise has to do with ur self-esteem, the way u validate ur efforts, and knowing what to say in return. sincere praise is a precious gift. when a friend, coworker, or loved one gives u a praise or pays u a compliment, just say "thank you." & say it with true feelings of gratitude. then revel in the kudos, bask in the acclaim, and smile through the applause!

stuck

cakap-cakap ilman aiman

we all have times when we get stuck, making a menu choice at a restaurant, selecting a shirt, buying a gift, choosing a movie, asking the commitment question, and so on. we can get stuck writing the letter, email, report, journal, blog, check, to do list.

being stuck is OK. let me say that one more time – being stuck is OK. sometimes it means that there is fear of making the choice. sometimes it means we really do not have enough facts. sometimes we are just not in the mood to make a choice. so there u go... i'm stuck. plain and simple/

cakap-cakap maestronine

*part 1*

well i had my mock exam this morning with mor.. i did my 'surgery' attachment in the south infirmary.. there was no vascular surgery there.. then i moved on next to the 'fixed' attachment, doing surgery first, with the colorectal team.. so a total of 9 weeks back to back doing surgery.. with no real experience and exposure to vascular stuff.. nonetheless, mor told me earlier on the 1st day of fixed rotation that she would give me a vascular patient for my mock exam.. so..

while waiting for the ward rounds this morning, 2 of my great colleagues tos and aw fired me with loads of questions.. trying to help me the best that they could.. they really pushed me to the edge like.. and at one stage i told them "this is an honours-question i suppose.. i must be doing very well here.. haha.."

then the girls went for their routine big-T before heading off to the opd.. i went to the library to do some reading..

later at quarter past ten, the people doing their fixed surgey in the bons, ec and aok, joined me for the mock exam.. we were assigned to 3 different patients.. honestly i was a bit nervous although it was only a mock exam.. while exploring the history, i could feel that i was a lil bit sweaty on my back.. however the patient was really friendly and he explained his symptoms very well.. his clinical features were indicative of acute limb ischaemia..

40 minutes later, 3 of us went into a room to present the history.. my presentation was fine and there was definitely room for improvement.. it wasn't that bad but still.. and i blame myself for the lack of practice.. i know i could have done better like.. we went to the bedside and i was asked to do some examination with regards to the upper limb.. overall, i would say my performance was at par and i need to work harder like..

Rattatouille

cakap-cakap brainbarrier

Mari memasak bersama Chef Shahied

Menu: Ayam masak Kiprik

Bahan2:
Ayam 10 ketul
Bawang besar 2 bijik
Halia sebijik(dlm 1 1/2 inci)
Kicap manis (secukup rasa)
Oyster sauce (secukup rasa)
Tomato sos
Minyak (4 sudu besar)
Serbuk Paprik 
Serbuk Cumin (mende ni aku pun tak tau..maen beli je kat tesco)

Arahan:
1- Mula2 basuh tangan dulu k? eh..tak2 mule2 pegi dapur dulu. dah basuh tangan pastu amek pisau potonglah bawang besar. satu bawang dipotong halus2, satu lagi dipotong 8. pastu potong halia pulak..ni kene halus2 baru masyuk beb. pastu sila panaskan minyak dalam kuali, preferably kuali non-stick supaya die tak stick..kalau miskin tak mampu beli kuali non-stick tak mengapa..kuali biasa pun okey,,
2- sambil menunggu minyak panas, basuhlah ayam2 itu..basuh sehingga bersih, cabut bulu2 di buntut ayam itu..buntut ayam kalau suka makan takyah buang..tp nnt mulut tak reti diam bak kata Jalil Hamid.. 
3- ok, make sure minyak tak terlalu panas..just nice dalam 60-70 degrees celcius gitu.. pastu masukkan lah bawang dan halia sekali..tumis sehingga naik bau..tapi jgn sampai bau hangit k? nnt jadi mcm adik2 kita kat rumah 63 summerstown drive. 
4- sambil menumis tu bole masukkan lah serbuk paprik dan serbuk cumin tu.. jgn la masuk byk sgt. agak2 dalam 1-2 sudu je. pastu kacau2kan ia.
5- dalam seminit pastu bole masukkan kicap manis..berape banyak?? sukati korang..kalau nk kuah byk bubuh byk.. pastu boh osyter sos plak skali dlm tu.. quantity is subjective..ikut sukati jiran korang la.
6- pastu masukkan ayam itu semuanya sekali..jangan main campak je..letak elok2..ayam pun ade perasaan. pastu kacau2kan ia sehingga beberapa minit..dlm 5-10 minit ka ok gak..sampai dia mendidih la kot..kah kah..
7- bler agak2 nk dekat masak tu, masukkan sos tomato sket. kacau2 sampai sebati pastu biarkan die masak dgn api yg slow slame 7.34 minit. sambil menunggu boleh la buat air kopi ke, air milo ke ape2 yg korang nk minum pas makan ok? jgn tinggalkan dapur sbb nanti lupe tgh masak pastu nnt hangit...mcm......rumah 63 summerstown drive...
8- walla, dah siap.. cek tgk ayam masak ke tak..kalo tak kang nnt kene infectious disease plak..penyakit ayam gler ke chicken pox ke..haish.. SILA AMBIL PERHATIAN, TAK PERLU LETAK GARAM OK? SEDAP JE PUN KALO TAKDE GARAM..HEHEH... kang garam byk2 kene hypertension..

ok..jgn malu2 untuk cuba resepi yg cilok dari chef wan ni.. yea rite.. any feedbacks sedap ke tak sedap ke ade pape yg bole ditambah atau improve ke sila comment di bawah. sekian terima kasih.. akhir kata, RATTATOUILLE!

staring vacantly into the dark cold night,
through the shady clouds of memories,
and you shiver,
as the sons and daughters of gales blow you..
your eau de parfum scent hangs around in the air,
blissfully like a tattoo,
that penetrates the skin deep, 
and stays there for eternity..
then as dusk  embarks,
the picture seems clear,
that ounces of memories seem to dissapear..

Dreams

cakap-cakap ilman aiman

ur days r numbered. u won't live forever & time is passing. so here u r, waiting.. and u've been waiting for things to happen. great things. things that u dream of happening. father used to say this..

"don't just dream. dig for it. put ur desires into motion & not just thought. act. be bold & courageous."

will it be easy? not likely. will it be worth the work, the risk and the frustration? depends really on how far ur willing to stretch. life is not all about immediate success. persistence and perseverance are the key elements here. but rest assured, hard work doesn't kill u. it will only bring u closer to a better tomorrow.

boys don't cry ( a softer side)

cakap-cakap brainbarrier

how often do we find a breed of male population that can get past the old models of masculinity and embrace their softer and gentler side? more often than not, men are bounded with ego, trained not be easily shattered and emotionally cold so that we don't lose touch with our own inner fire and power as men. but does being sensitive highlites a weaker corner of the personality that men have been trying to hide all this while?

a recent discussion with some colleagues made me wonder whether are men really tied up in an ongoing set of expectations that are imposed on them to act accordingly, showing appropriate behaviour, making sure that the masculinity is maintained in any given circumstances. surely, a touch of vulnerability is acceptable but the threshold is indeed greater. men is born to be the saviour, the knight in shining armour that is destined to lead, to control and to dominate...all of which require a certain quality that reflects strength, agility, and endurance. now, we wouldn't want to bring shame to our testosterone level do we?

but the problem is have we gone too far?? not being emotionally ready to connect to our softer side, being insensitive on things that require considerate attention and comforting words. why are we so reluctant to admit our own misfortunes, to share & care for our problems and to have a shoulder to cry on, someone who will tell us to our face that "it's not the end of the world"...

stepping up

cakap-cakap ilman aiman

in this harsh reality of life, it is nearly impossible not to care about what grades u get. having been slaving ourselves through med school for the past few years, certainly getting a first class honors is rewarding. but underneath all the good hopes & work laboured into achieving such level, the reality is a little too far within our grasp. and lets face it... good grades can be a plus. people with good grades get a lot of recognition. it boosts one’s self esteem to know that one is performing well. the better ur grades are, the better ur odds of securing a job and in the long run, traditionally it is supposed to open lots of doors for better career opportunities.

but what about the rest of us? what does it say about us if our grades are average at best, possibly worse? how are we going to get by without as many doors of opportunity open to us? are we snubbed just like that.. being punish for not performing as well as some of the high fliers of our peers? are we doomed to a life of mediocrity?

i don't know why i write about this. maybe because i'm a bit bitter of the fact that my grades now are no where close to what they used to be. or maybe this is a self comforting words that i use to remind myself, that there are more into working life than just getting good grades. i don't know. yesterday, as we're finishing our 3rd rotation (paediatrics), dr.C gave out a good few pointers on how she sees life after medical school. and what i'm attracted the most, is where she lashes out that for the majority of us, the mediocres that is... we don't really need to worry as it is our bunch that usually shines the most after med school. it could be a self compensatory thing that we do, to push ourselves ahead or maybe because we're trying to prove a point. that we could be a somebody. yes, surely ur grades are better than mine now. but does that mean that ur gonna work up the ladder faster than any of us!! maybe?... or maybe not.. =D

and again, as we are drawing closer to the end, personally for me, it would be interesting to see who among us will reach up the top the fastest 10-20 years down the line... position wise & also money wise. if based purely on my observations of which i could be bias about, i see some promising talent among my fellow peers. but of course anything could happen & i wouldn't want to write off anybody. so, it's a fair race. best of luck to us all.

if its gonna be.. its up to me..

cakap-cakap maestronine

ideally everybody should have this attitude inside one-self.. we should take the responsibility to make something happen.. the satisfaction and the “high” feelings would be extremely greater.. rather than seeing things happen without being involved in the process of achieving that greatness at all.. with or without you, this world is dynamically moving "forward" and gets better and better..

you and yes you have to start and initiate things.. do not expect for somebody else to feed you.. be proactive.. dare to try new things.. instead of thinking dare to fail , why not dare to succeed.. do not have the feeling of inferiority complex.. believe in yourself.. yes you can.. and you will..

"we can't spell SUCCESS without U".. everyone has to play their own role at the individual level and works together as a team.. be it in the community setting, hospital setting and as this blog is a house blog, i would suggest to the readers that the same philosophy to be applied in the house/home setting as well.. a quick reminder to all.. spare some of your precious time to make your house a pleasant and lovely place to stay in.. be considerate.. make your housemates and family happy.. cheer them up if they are feeling a bit low.. discuss and try to resolve any house and family problems together.. remember though what's in the house, stays in the house *wink*.. wash and clean up your dishes, do a little bit of hoovering.. scrub the toilets etc.. train yourself to do these small and simple things now.. or else some of us might face trouble and crisis later on when we possess our own house in the future.. "berat sama dipikul ringan sama dijinjing"..

stay tune with us.. till then, take care lads.. cheers..

Geriatrics is depressing.
It has been a long, hard, tiring day..
One of my patients has died today in the afternoon.
It is true what people say, when u dying, ur mouth will be dry.. and thats what I saw in his last moments.
His mouth is gaping open, his breathing - a characteristic Cheyne-stokes. A frail 85 y.o. gentleman, With a DNR order in place.
'Cheyne-Stokes respiration
n. An abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by a gradual increase in depth and sometimes in rate to a maximum depth, followed by a decrease resulting in apnea, usually seen in comatose individuals having diseased nervous centers of respiration.'
He doesnt seem to have family member around, just an old female friend. At least someone was there...
There is an atmosphere of eeriness when ure with someone whos dying.. all the while i was there i couldnt help but wonder .. any malaikats here.. wonder what they're doing to him now... wonder what he is thinking now...
and then time of death was announced.
Good luck dear Mr X
I'll miss u on ward rounds tomorrow.

anyone into the apprentice on tv3? im beginning to love the show.

very entrepreneur-like.


Me, Haizum and Ila discussed a possible joint-venture business after we grad while we were dining at a restaurant in town last Sunday. and I am seriously thinking about it.

anyways, Medsoc football wasnt our day again. we lost.

good luck mates who r still trying hard to focus on the letters on the books that seems to fade away faster and faster...

it's thursday..

cakap-cakap brainbarrier

salam lads..

well well well.. today is the second day of syawal.. nothing much.. back-to-school mode.. it would still be a public holiday back in malaysia.. and the festive mood would still be in the air.. a very good time to pay a visit to our relatives and neighbours, although we are encouraged to do so whenever it is appropriate i.e. not to wait till "it's raya" only..

and today it's thursday.. one of the things which will come to my mind = it's my cooking day.. starting this week, there is another "burden" to be carried on my back on thursday =p hehe joking 75ers.. it's indeed my pleasure to be part of this team.. hopefully this blog will keep going, at least until the end of our final year.. retrospectively, we should have start this blog earlier huhu..

tomorrow gonna be a mild-"palpitation"-day for 3 of us.. i am taking this opportunity to wish them all the best and good luck.. may the force be with you.. you have my prayers.. we can do it!! the same goes to our classmates as well as our juniors.. examination is just one of the many assessments and challenges to become the best that we can be..

and to my fellow Muslims, remember to continue what we have done during the month of Ramadhan.. the ibadah, the good deeds etc... don't forget to do your puasa enam k..

can't wait for this saturday.. make sure the batteries are fully charged!!
till then.. take care lads.. may Allah bless you..

75ers @ 1st day of raya

cakap-cakap brainbarrier

*a bunch of posers at the aula max after solat*

a brief event. started as scheduled (though i arrived late) and some photo sessions afterwards. and not to mention, my battery cam went dead even before i had the chance to snap a picture. likewise with izad's cam. so, we ended up posing for others and this explains the limited number of photos taken. but no worries, i'll be all ready for this saturday @ mini rest.

pagi raya

cakap-cakap brainbarrier

oh god... it's pagi raya already. i don't think my housemates is up though. actually i ought to attend the ward round this morning but maybe i'll give it a skip. raya doesn't come often. besides, i wouldn't want to miss my raya prayer.

i know my family is gathering in kajang rite now. deep down, i do wish that i can be there celebrating with them as this mark my 5th raya away from family. so, for the last 5 years, no new baju raya, no duit raya, no more the important tradition of bersalam2 after raya prayers n frankly i do miss doing them. next year?? i don't know. it's too early to tell.....

and oohh, luckily there are some fancy foods a.k.a rendang @ lemang @ nasi impit in the kitchen. so, maybe i can scoop in some before the day start.
