you do not want to be labelled as a "L"!!

cakap-cakap maestronine

you know that you don't know, yet you do nothing about it..

you know you have many things to do, yet you are still relaxing..

you know you are facing a tough and strong opponent, yet you do not train..

you know you have prioritise your agendas, yet you still do things which are least important..

you know you have a write-up to be submitted, yet you keep procrastinating..

you know exam is around the corner, yet you are still messing around..

those are just random examples.. seriously you do not want to be called a loser right?? the good thing is you still have the time to change things the way you want it to be.. so start changing.. now or never.. lets be a winner.. berusaha!!

Why I miss my DAD...

cakap-cakap izadiskandar

"Ada 1 advert. Petronas CNY 2009, pasal kisah seorang papa & mama. Shd Watch at utube if free"

That is the text/SMS I got this morning from MAMA when I was doing Ward rounds. I wondered what this video was. So after Outpatients Clinic session ends around 12, i went home, stopped over at Farash store, get my chickens, cook lunch/dinner for the boys and log on to check youtube.

Watching it, I suddenly miss my papa, and my mama... and wondered how they are..

So yes, I miss my Papa, and Mama too.
Do u notice any similarity between this picture and the advertisement above?

ketam melayu ... ketam cina

cakap-cakap ilman aiman

just now, we had this discussion where it led to this story. and for those who are unaware of the metaphors in between the words, then this is a story about the Malay, the Chinese, & success...

once upon a time in a land far far away..

.... ada seorang melayu yang ingin makan lauk ketam. Pada pagi tu dia pergilah ke pasar borong dan berjalan ke satu kedai milik cina yang menjual ketam.

Melayu : Apek! Itu ketam ada jual ka?

Cina : Ada…ada…lu mau ketam cina ka ketam melayu?

Melayu : Aik! Ketam pun ada melayu dengan cina ka apek? Cuba lu tunjuk mana ketam melayu, mana ketam cina?

Cina : Itu sana dalam bekas ada tutup…ketam cina……sana dalam bekas tak ada tutup… ketam melayu la…

Melayu : Apa pasal ketam cina apek kasi tutup…ketam melayu apek tak kasi tutup?

Cina : Itu ketam cina kalau satu ekor keluar…yang lain akan tengok dan kasi belajar macam mana boleh keluar dari bekas. Nanti lama-lama semua ketam pandai keluar dari bekas. Jadi semua keluar la.

Melayu : Ketam melayu tak itu macam ka?

Cina : Ketam melayu, kalau satu ekor keluar yang lain kasi tarik itu kaki ketam tadi…jangan kasi keluar. Dia mau dia sekor saja keluar…yang lain biar dalam bekas. Kalau dia sudah keluar, dia terus lari, tak mau ajar yang lain macam mana mau keluar.

Begitulah cerita ketam melayu dengan ketam cina. Hakikatnya, jika orang cina berniaga… cina lain tak kacau… dia tengok aje dan belajar macam mana boleh berjaya. Cina yang dah berjaya tu pulak, akan ajar cina lain agar berjaya jugak. Kalau orang melayu, bila satu melayu nak berjaya, melayu lain akan guna apa saja supaya melayu tu jatuh balik. Macam ketam melayu, bila sekor ketam dah berjaya nak naik, ketam lain tarik kaki dia, at last sorang pun tak dapat naik . Lepas tu mulala bergaduh sesama sendiri. Rata² melayu orang melayu macam tu. PHD (Perasaan hasad dengki) begitu tebal dalam diri mereka.

p/s: this has nothing to do with anybody. just food for thought

cakap-cakap maestronine

i would agree with prof.. abuse can be in many forms.. and in the context of paediatrics, ~99.99% of children have been "abused" by their parents at least once, during his/her life.. for instance, according to him, parental smoking can be considered as one form of child-abuse.. it never came to my mind but i think it's true to a certain extent.. abuse is absolutely a thought-provoking topic to be discussed and talked about.. different people may have different definition and threshold with regard to what is and what is not abuse.. as well as the gap between "abuse" and trying to instill some discipline and positive attitudes into their children.. so tepuk dada tanya selera.. from my point of view, we just need to have the right "nawaitu" and rationalise our actions and behaviour, keeping in mind the things we do are for the good of ourselves and people around us..

on a separate issue, yeayy 1st time this morning on the way to cuh.. saw a 09-C-xxxx red car.. finally.. i don't know why i am making such a fuss about this.. but i think it's just me.. haha =p

Perghhh.. pehal jiwang sangat ni??

cakap-cakap shahied

Love. Its a weird thing. Its natural to want to be loved, to love. Sunnatullah we are made as men and women in pairs. Everybody has their own definitions of what love is. "How do you know if you love someone?" a friend once asked me. My answer was, well, until you yourself experienced it, its hard to explain. You would know it yourself if you are (i think). This is not a general rule though. Of course there are exceptions to everything.

Love. Its spans all humanity.

Question is, if you were given a choice, and you MUST ONLY CHOOSE ONE, which one would you prefer?
a) being with someone who loves you
b) being with someone you love

my theory was, guys would mostly choose b), and girls would mostly would choose a)
anybody dare to prove me wrong??

ARghhh!! Geram!!

cakap-cakap izadiskandar

(blog is in Malay-Sorry if ure not a malay speaking person, too bad lah kan)

ARGHH!! Geramnye aku..
I am Working twice as much, twice as hard to impress him. Tapi geram, sebab wuteva I do, wutever I did, dia memang takkan akan notis aku. dia hanya nampak kesalahan aku saja.. and then tekan aku habis habis.

Geram!. tengah fuming mad ni. Ini lah masalah apabila kita seorang saja warganegara asing dalam team consultant kita. Pertama, mereka akan pandang rendah akan kebolehan kita. Kedua, dia akan jauh lebih prefer pelajar mereka daripada kita. Dan ini bukan aku saja yang gedik perasan. As you have known, aku bukannya jenis yang suka "main racial card", and aku kadang-kadang tak percaya bila ada orang kata mereka ni prejudis dengan bangsa mereka sendiri. Tapi adakala memang aku terasa, kalaulah aku sama warna kulit dengan mereka, mungkin layanan mereka berbeza.

Citernye panjang, malas aku nak cerita. Risau juga kalau aku terlebih emo pula.

Letih. Penat. Geram.

I work so hard, so much, to impress them (him especially!). In the end, nothing.

Tiba-tiba, aku teringat cerita Devil Wear Prada, yang mana assistant tu bekerja habis mati untuk Miranda, bos dia, tapi bos dia langsung tak kisah, malah lagi expect lebih-lebih dan marah2. Aku paham perasaan dia. Tapi in the end assistant tu dah tak kisah, tak perlukan approval Bos (atau Spr) dia lagi, and she got the ever-elusive nod/smile in the end.

Hope I will get that nod/smile at the end. No, wait. I DONT CARE>>

Staying true to myself, I have two words for HIM..


DO I???

Issues and what not

cakap-cakap shahied

This was an excerpt i read in a blog. It was from a Jew OBVIOUSLY. but we all know what jews are like rite?  They are united, focused on their goals. They have knowledge, they have power. To them, non-jews are all pigs that can be slaughtered at their will. Allah berfirman dlm   surah  Al Baqarah (ayat 120)  yg bermaksud:  "Orang-orang Yahudi dan Nasrani tidak akan senang kepada kamu sehingga kamu mengikuti agama mereka. Katakanlah, sesungguhnya petunjuk Allah itulah petunjuk(yg benar). Dan sesungguhnya jika kamu mengikuti kemahuan mereka setelah datang pengetahuan kepada kamu maka Allah tidak lagi menjadi pelindung dan penolong bagimu."

this was the excerpt:
This video brought a tear to my eye, and also reminded me if any ignorant Jew hater dare come at me with false theories of Israel, who we are as a people, our hearts, our passions, our intellect, our humor, our creativity, and lastly, our faith in Hashem, if ANYONE dare tell me some little Palestinian dying is my fault, simply because his/her own people don’t care to make a better life as we have with our own people, I will hold myself back from destroying them on the spot, because I’m a Jew. (kurang hajo btol)

Now hold back and try to adjust your thoughts for a few seconds before you say anything. Yes the rage is inside us all on what the Israelis laknatullah are doing to our Muslim brothers n sisters in Palestine.
But the question here is, what are we as Muslims obliged to do? Do we shout all day long crying out for justice, or we fight, we fight the right fight, the right way.  Enrich ourselves with knowledge,skills,networkings and what not. And when i say knowledge, not just MEDICAL knowledge(please) . 
In the context of us as a Muslim Malaysian then is to better the lives of people in our country, to contribute most of what you are capable of, to spread  awreness to others of responsibilities, to be a leader of your community for those who has the skills, to be a leader within the family, to be a leader of yourself.
The start of Islam Empire was when they were UNITED, and then they were KNOWLEDGABLE. 

p/s: oh, one more thing, yg CNN votes ISRAEL vs PALESTINE tu seems like a scam to me. takde pekdah kot vote kat situ. sejak bler CNN cares about Palestine?

cakap-cakap maestronine

loads of people and companies have taken advantage while the world is facing with so many global challenges and problems.. for instance an increase in the menu/food prices.. just imagine, amik scone, butter and jam.. setiap item naik 5 sen, so in total naik 15 sen.. coffee/tea plak naik 10-15 sen.. tu baru morning tea, x masuk lunch etc2.. if sehari, mungkin x terase sgt.. but if collectively in a month or a year, terpalit jgk la kan.. income-wise remains the same.. in fact, some employers even want to cut down the paycheck for their employees.. so resolusi?? bekal?? puasa?? berlapar?? snacks?? belasah je?? cari 2nd/extra income??

of note, today is already jan 15th, and surprisingly, i haven't seen any '09 car yet.. usually by this time of the year, "new" cars can be seen everywhere.. is it just me, becoming not so observant this year?? or the world economic crisis??

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they're dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who's wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight

We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Don't be my Valentine

cakap-cakap ilman aiman

Tomorrow is Feb the 14th, an annual event of celebrating love. every where u turn u see signs of love and togetherness. it seems that everything comes in twos. All the hearts and kisses and lovey dovey drivel that u can stomach. it's wonderful, great and all that gushy stuff that everyone is in love.

but what about us that are alone? what about us that have no one to send roses and candy, and heart-shaped valentines to? this can be the most depressing day of the year for those of us who have loved & lost or are still searching for the right one. even some with a partner can feel the sting of loneliness if the glow of love is no longer bright. let's not forget those whose quest for love is still ongoing.

but often enough we tend to forget that love comes in different shapes and sizes. sure, we may not have a significant other to share the mutual feeling of being loved, but the presence of our circle of friends are more than enough to compensate for this empty feeling . just because u’re single doesn’t mean u’re alone!

so... this is a memorial, a tribute for everyone out there who is still hunting for a love of their own. single guys, single ladies.. to us all...

p/s: this is purely fiction. we're all better than this rite?. hahah

hey there.. hope everyone is in great form.. and all geared up for the upcoming exams.. just so everybody know that this is our sixth and final week of third rotation.. hence the end-of-rotation exams for those who are doing paeds, obs & gynae, and fixed attachment.. then 3 down 2 to go =D..

something to think about.. i frequently ask myself whether my graph is upgoing or not (graf aku ni menaik ke x??).. what i mean by the graph is my life and the development of a human being as a whole.. that includes interpersonal skills, maturity skills, student skills, final year skills, skills bersyukur, skills sebagai hamba Allah etc2.. and what is meant by upgoing is just better and better.. so visualise and draw your own graph.. ask yourself: where are you now compared to 5-10 years ago or 2-3 months ago or even yesterday.. and where will you be tomorrow or in 2-3 months time or 5-10 years down the road??

all the best lads for the next rotation.. serious, serious jugak.. jgn lupa utk enjoy!!
