Ending of JC3 in Perdana University

Hello lovely people! I am back. It has been a while since I am here sharing my stories. It feels good to have my fingers dancing on my keyboard again. Believe it or not, I actually have tonnes of stories to share almost at every moment of my life! I am never a person who can keep feelings and emotions to only myself and I love to share with anyone who is willing to listen. But too bad I am only here after so long because I was just too busyyyyy. *Procrastinating level infinite*

So I want to proudly announce that another great semester had just finally come to an end! And we are all entitled with a three weeks Christmas break to recharge back our batteries, because it is about time for us to step into the Intermediate Cycle in the next semester (we went through 3 Junior Cycles). Seriously I have yet to prepare myself as of now. But I know I need to. Because it will be a brand new phase, a big hurdle for me. I remember I did a reflection for every previous semester in this blog. However, pardon me. I am not going to do for the Junior Cycle 3 that has just ended. I shall keep the reason to myself. :)

Ending this post with the mandatory class picture every semester. Looking at my lovely classmates made me fall in love with Perdana all over again.

We are one big family.

Nuffnang Food Festival at Sunway Pyramid

I swear it was just a casual Saturday afternoon. 

Weekends, to me, are rather boring as I seldom go out and whole day of studying at home really freaks me out. So as I was instagram-ing last Saturday, I came across Sean's picture saying that he is going to the #NNFoodFest held in Sunway Pyramid! My first reaction was ''Aww you are going! I want, too!'' And surprisingly, Sean gave me a call immediately and asked if I wanna join him. You can see that it was a really last-minute decision because I even went with shorts and flip flops. Haha oppps. :p

If you are wondering what is #NNFoodFest, it is the Malaysia's first ever tw(eat) fest held by Nuffnang. What you have to do is to have your smartphone with you, and tweet/instagram/facebook to eat! I must say that this is a really smart move of Nuffnang. Nuffnang gets to reward us for being faithful Nuffnangers all these while, and the vendors get to promote their food plus getting additional likes on Facebook! It is a win-win situation! Smart eh? See how strong the influence of media mass to the teenagers nowadays.
*Nuffnang is the world's leading Blog Advertising Community.

Here is a list of all the vendors taking part in this event. Spot your favourite? *wink*

Photo: [MY] Check out the vendors who will be at the #NNFoodFest! 

Are you ready for it? Countdown to the #NNFoodFest: 3 DAYS!
More info our on latest blog post here: http://bit.ly/17rFE70


Sean and I reached Sunway Pyramid at around 4.30pm and we can already feel the heat when we haven't even join into the crowd!
Look at the amount of crowd on that day!


Smartphones, smartphones everywhere

After registration, Sean and I quickly joined in the crowd and started our food journey. We started by approaching the nearest stall to us - Crush Food. I don't own a twitter account so I got my free blended fruit juice by liking and sharing their Facebook page. Whereas Sean tweet and hashtag #crushfood. As simple as that!

Jackfruit twist and banana pineapple from Crush Food. Such a refreshing start!

Absolute Thai kebab

The big Maggi Kari mascot and the happy little girl posing with her balloon.
:p
                                           
Pork soup from Restoran Sek Me Choy

Introducing the creative Nasi Lemak Popiah! From Zuo, Publika.
They wrap the rice, sambal, eggs, cucumber in the popiah, creating Malaysia very own popiah.
*Proud Malaysian*

Pan mee from Paradise Group Malaysia.
They were so generous to give us such a big portion!
Plus point is the soup base was simply delicious!
Probably the best pan mee soup base I have ever tried. (Y)

Mashed potato and chicken chop from Niko Niko Onigiri.
It looks simple but the Japanese-style mashed potato was so yummy!

Pork burger *Non-halal*
It is bite-size and it looks so cute with the small flag on top of it. :)
                               
        


The lady at Ninja Joe's counter kindly explained to a Nuffnanger
how to tweet/instagram/facebook to get their food sample.

Best drink to relieve our thirst - dragon fruit ice blended from Vineg Plus.
                             
And also the already very famous Chatime! Students'all time favourite!
They have different rule from the other vendors as we have to take a photo
with their exclusive Chatime frame and instagram the photo.
So we did and we got one Chatime each! Yay.
*ignore my messy hair. Ahhhh.*


We were already very full by then, so we decided to reward our tummies with some desserts. Ohhh. The guilty me. All the girls diet plan epic failed on that day because of all these attractive foodssss. :( 

I would say that this is the BEST FOOD I have tried on that day.
Ice cream from Cielo Dolci.
I had the 70% Belgian Chocolate and Sean had the Tau Fu Fa.
Yes you didn't hear me wrong, Tau Fu Fah ice cream!
 I also spotted other special flavours such as Nasi Lemak (I wonder does it tastes spicy?),
coconut gula melaka, Kedondong, salted caramel, etc.
I am a Tau Fu Fah fans and I totally fell in love with their ice cream!
Their 70% Belgian Chocolate was equally nice as well. HEAVENLY NICE.
But too bad we can only try once. :(
I googled for their outlets but I can't really find them.
Anyone has any idea where can I find Cielo Dolci outlets in KL?

N brew Nitrogen ice cream.
Wondering how to make ice cream with liquid nitrogen?

*One minute science class now*
Liquid nitrogen, which has a boiling point of -196C, is used for instantly freezing food and drinks, or creating an impressive cloud of vapour or fog when exposed to air. 
If liquid nitrogen is added to liquid such as an ice cream mixture, it cools the liquid rapidly while it boils away and produce a cloud of vapour. The rapid freezing produces an ice cream with particularly small ice crystals which has a very smooth texture.
:D

This is the liquid nitrogen!
We were so impressed by the cloud of vapour produced that me and Sean quickly insta video it




Pretty puddings from Sweet Montage.

Crepe cake from Humble Beginnings.
The portion was a little bit small and I can't really remember how it tasted.
I probably still find the Nadeje crepe cake in Melaka the best. :D

Durian and original flavour puffs from Kee's Creampuffs.
This is definitely a YES for durian lover like me. Haha.
Our last stop was Crazy potato!
The queue was crazy as well that was why we leave it the last.
There were 3 different toppings and I chose the cheese one.
French fries French fries! *Omnomnom*


So happy that even there were lots of Nuffnangers on that day,
there were no pushing and cutting queue.
(Y) *Peace* (Y)


Because we love candid shots. Hee. 
I spotted the very famous My Burger Lab as well but we decided to give up on it because the queue was just. too. longgggg. The charm of the little black burger. There were just too many stalls and we didn't get to try all the stalls. What a pity. Partly because some of them were too kind and generous and they gave us a very big portion each. :O We felt so full that we decided to sit down and chill and listen to a talk on food bloggers' photography skills. Sean was so lucky that he was the first person to win a free book of food vouchers by giving an enthusiastic shout to the emcees! Woohoo! The food vouchers can probably last him for a year. :D
                                   
Sean interviewed by the two handsome emcees, Kevin and Matthew.

Another fun part of this event was that we get to bump into our friends! By scrolling through instagram, Sean realised that his high school besties - Ivan was also here at the NN Food Fest! Such a coincidence. :)

Sean and Ivan chit-chatting happily while enjoying the food.


Guess who I met? Tee Wilee - my high school senior!
It has been ages since I last saw her and she looks so gorgeous now. :)
Btw I look like a giant beside her LOL.

Special thanks to my company of the day - Sean!
Thank you for bringing me there :)
You can click here to visit his blog. Very worth-reading! :)

Because it was a last minute decision, I didn't insta their photo beforehand so I didn't get the limited edition badge and macaroons during registration. Aww. :( And also after the event I realised that they were giving out free power bank! Aikkss. Moral of the story - last minute won't do you any good. Lol.

This was actually my second time joining Nuffnang activity as I am still a newbies Nuffnanger. But I totally enjoyed myself on that day and I appreciate all the hard work put in by the Nuffnang committees to make this event a great success. Happy stomach, happy me. :D Thumbs up to Nuffnang! And thank you! *bows* Will definitely join awesome event like this again next time. :) How was your weekends readers? I hope you enjoyed yours too!

Love, Eunice.

分享

没人分享,幸福就只剩一半。
喝一碗汤,心怎么都不够暖。


你说,会寂寞,是因为找不到可以一起分享的人。
哈,这才发现原来我们根本就是同类。要找到志同道合的朋友,好比大海捞针。
以为找到了,其实根本没有。

不是不想分享,而是想分享,别人还不一定愿意听。
所以沉默了。封闭了。心门关上了。
没有可以分享的伴,连说话都是一种浪费。

第一次觉得,如果你在,就好了。

Clinical Competency



I despise people who study medicine but think that following dress code is shit.

I started Clinical Competency in this new semester (Junior Cycle 3) and I would like to share with my readers things I have learnt from this module. As a medical student, we are expected to wear decent clothing when we attend our classes. Decent as in no skirts above knee level, no short pants, no open toes shoes, no bangles and watches, and for girls, hair exceed shoulder length must be tied neatly. Why must we do this? You think this is because the lecturers trying to create a fuss? Then you are totally wrong. We wear decent clothing because this is a safety precaution not only to ourselves and also our patients in the future. Doctors are at the highest potential risk for cross infection. Needle stick injuries are so common. How are you going to save someone else's life when you can't even protect yourself well. Imagine you wear open toes shoes and some chemicals just spill on your toes. Imagine you are having a consultation with your patient and while you are sitting down, crossing your legs and your sexy legs attract even more attention than your words. Imagine you are trying to auscultate your patient and your flying long hair is all over your patient's face. Dress codes are set for our convenience. Rules are there for a reason. And of course, when there are rules, they are meant to be followed.

Some private universities in Malaysia never had dress code, medical students just come with t-shirt, hot pants and flip flops. Yes, public universities in Malaysia have dress code, but sadly, it is due to religious reason. However, my university teaches me something. Something that other universities will never teach me - self discipline. Self discipline is so important not only in my future career, and also become a practice in my daily life. We are trained to abide to the dress code, to make us look professional when we start to serve the society, a respect to our profession and also to our patients, and most important of all, our attitudes. You can violate the rules when you graduate. Nobody is going to be there restrict what you want to wear. Attitude determines all. You want to wear mini skirts and shorts when you do medicine? Go away. You just humiliated this noble profession.

No offences.

Malaysians are disappointing.

Last Wednesday, I was waiting for KTM at KL Sentral. I was considered quite unlucky because by the time I bought my ticket, the last train just left. So I got no choice but to wait for the next train. So I was the first person queuing there. The next train took around 30 minutes to come, which made everyone starting to get very impatient. People queuing behind me started to mumble and complain. I was quite worried too because I actually needed to rush back to my university. Any delays can really make me late for classes.

So the train finally came. Many people wanted to go in/go out from the train at the same time. I believe I am a good citizen. Of course, I will have to wait at the side and allow people inside to come out from the train first. However, there were just too many people. People queuing behind me started to bypass me and entered the train first (Whatttt?) So the people inside the train were stuck and couldn't come out. And me, stood awkwardly there. Then there was this Malay guy inside the train, wanted to come out but couldn't, started to scold right in front of my face (as I was the only one standing outside the train waiting, everyone else busy squeezing into the train). ''You tak pernah belajar ke, orang keluar dulu baru masuk, tunggu sekejap pun tak boleh, sekolah tak ajar ibu bapa pun tak ajar.....''

Now tell me. What's wrong with this world? I got scolded even when I was the one who waited and gave way to the passengers. Yes, he wasn't talking about me, but the feeling of get lectured right in my face was just so awful. At the same time, I was reminded by my pleasant experience of taking Singapore's MRT. This is just too disappointing.

A day worth celebrating :)

Had been constantly following one of my colleague's blog. I love his blog because he is a good story teller and I like the way he describes the little things happening in Perdana University. He records his medical school life by having a counting to every of his post e.g The Med School Report - Day 365. Yes, he just reminded me that we have come to the 365th day of our medical school lives. I remember someone once told me, what are you scare of? One year is so short if you count it by months. Yes, one year can be really short, because it is just 12 months. But one year can be long, because it is 31557600 seconds. So many things can happen in 31557600 seconds, be it ups or downs, but I believe no cloud is so dark that the sun can't shine through. There may be things that upset you but the sadness fades, eventually. First year just passed. And I am now embracing my second year, with greater aspirations. They say, if your dreams don't scare you, they are not big enough.


19th September is Perdana University's official Founder's Day. Thus, like my colleague, I would also like to wish my university a very Happy Birthday. I will continue to be proud of you and make you proud one day.

Eye Contact Attraction

You know at times, from someone's eyes you can read his/her mind. Mind-readers enter your mind through your eyes. Liars exposed themselves if they show rapid eye movements. Love at first sight means 8.2 seconds of eye contact. Let's do some eyes practice, too!

Learn to use your eyes to their full potential:
Make constant eye contact when in conversation. Looking away (especially down) is a sign of inferiority and uncertainty. Instead, look at your conversation partner dead in the eyes and keep them locked on.

Master the piercing stare. You know when someone looks at you and it feels like they can see into your soul? Well that’s not a hereditary characteristic, it just takes practice. Work on sharpening your gaze in the mirror. You’ll know you have it when it’s intimidating to continue looking at yourself.

The Trio

I miss the three of us. Like very, very much.
I hope the trio is still there.

Comfort Zone

Wanted to write something about the new chapter of my life but I realise they are a bit here and there and I don't know how to organise it into a story. So I think I would just highlight one of the epic story happened on me in this very first week of my new semester. The story is quite straight forward and simple la. Throw you a question here and you will get me: What would you do, if you shower halfway and suddenly no water?

This whole story begins when I moved into my new house. It is a town house and I am living in the upper unit. This resulting in my house having really POOR water pressure. That is why I didn't feel very weird when I shower halfway and the water started to become smaller and smaller. But not when the water stopped completely! I was like, ah crap. So I took all my toiletries and went to the other bathroom downstairs to continue to bathe. God knows how lucky I was. Once again, the water stopped! Hell no. I never thought this kind of thing can happen on me. My house mates were all upstairs. So I can only...shouted for help. House mates couldn't figure out why the water suddenly stopped too. So I was left naked in the bathroom with soaps on me somemore. I think I was already calm and steady enough because I didn't scream or did any other stupid things. Lol.

My house mates gave me 2 options, to either wrap myself in towel and go to guys' unit to continue my bath (NO NO this shouldn't even be an option), or they helped me to carry water to my bathroom. Although I very much didn't want to trouble my house mates, I chose the second option. Hence the whole story ended awkwardly. (It was found out later that our water pipe was closed by someone don't know accidentally or we actually had enemies and it was a prank. Lol.)

That is why sometimes I hate to change. To change, you must be ready to face all these kind of things which are totally out of your expectation. Yes, new house is comfy and big and near to university and good environment and no mosquitos and good food is just around me. But somehow I just miss my old place where I don't have to face water problem, everything is ready there, house mates are just studying beside you but not separated now by the tall wall,  and I even have a beautiful lake where I can jog whenever I want. Sometimes I really do wish I can stay in my comfort zone forever.

Crown me the queen of indecisiveness

Curiosity doesn't kill. Indecisive kills. I remember I have emphasised before that I hate people who can't make no matter big or small decisions in their lives. That is why sometimes I can be really mad at myself. To the extent that I hope I can give myself a slap or hang myself to death instead. I can die. I wasn't born with silver spoons or gold spoons or whatever spoon in my mouth. When I was young I have been taught by my family that every single cent must be spent wisely and we never splurge on buying branded stuffs. I wouldn't deny this part of me made me into who I am now, who is extremely indecisive when it comes to money.
Story begins. I needed to purchase something so these are the steps that I did.


1. I asked my friend who is familiar with this for recommendations of brands and shops. So he gave me a few recommendations which were having promotions.

2. Google-ed (yes Google is my best friend that I can't live without) the recommendation of my friend (no no I swear it was not because I don't trust my friend).

3. Went to the shop for the first time and confirmed everything that was shown on their websites are correct. Went back without purchasing.

4. Stared at the brochure at home for countless time and think and think and think. Went back to the websites to recheck the dateline of the promotion and think and think and think. Passed by the shop a few times and think and think and think.

5. Finally decided to purchase (on the last day of the promotion period somemore wth). Went to the shop  and asked again all the details. Don't know why started to consider again, although I came telling myself that I would purchase this today (I am serious!). Okay lah I would just buy. Told the salesperson that I wanted this package and gave my IC to him for final registration. While the salesperson was keying in my personal details, I wondered what struck me at that moment and I yelled: Stop! I decided not to purchase. Let me go home and consider about it. Got my IC back. Went home empty-handed.


Story ends. Someone please tell me what was wrong with me.

Extended version of the story:
6. Promotion period has over and I am now regretting for not purchasing it. FML.


Food for thought.

写信给十年后的自己

十年后的自己:

迈入三十了,一切可好?从二十多岁的小女孩蜕变成轻熟女了吗?我想,你应该正为工作而忙得不可开交吧。或许正在为政府作牛作马,或许开了自己的一家诊所?虽然其实自己最想开的是一家咖啡厅。那五年的学医生涯,再苦也是熬过了。你知道的。所以你不会去埋怨,因为你很清楚雨后的彩虹的道理。即使是天天的on call,我猜你一定也能在你的工作中找到乐趣。以你的个性,我想你一定正在怀念着读书的日子。多久没有约中学大学的同窗好友出来叙叙旧了?念旧的你,想念了,就拿起你的电话吧。

这十年,都是一个人在过吗?有对象了?结婚了?有孩子了?噢,我想应该不会这么快的。我太了解你了。那想隐藏却隐藏不了的事业心。有个对象就很好了吧,把二十岁那年结束的初恋给埋葬埋葬。初恋很美,可是不能紧抓,放开来,放在心底才是最美的。妈妈一定超担心的,一定在问你什么时候要把男朋友介绍给她认识。你一定会这样回答妈妈:先担心姐姐再说吧!哈哈,那迟婚主义者的姐姐,不知道十年后是否还是一样。

想出书的梦想,还没放弃吧?你不是一个很会说故事的人,却很喜欢用文字来抓住人们的心。最想最想有那么一天,人们能够看着你的文字,体会着你的心情。如果十年后真的出书了,那你可真是美梦成真!驾车了没?不会还像以前一样,永远享受着当乘客的滋味吧。不过如果你已经找到了那愿意永远接送你的那个他,那就不一样了。去了几个国家了?旅行啊,傻瓜。不要总是说工作很忙没放自己假啊。没有旅行的伴?一个人吧。一个人看世界也不错的。还是一样爱看电视剧吗?如果你还像十年前一样抱着枕头在电脑前面看电视剧看到哭,那你一定超可爱的。爱哭鬼,还哭吗?

从以前就一样,觉得最不想看的病人就是自己的父母。我相信你这几年来的生日愿望一定都没有变,第一个愿望将永远属于他们。父母的健健康康,就是我的幸福宝藏。

或许,你现在最享受的,是坐在咖啡馆悠闲地度过每一个午后时光。没有很华丽又遥不可及的梦想,只有每一天最朴实的感动,实实在在的。单身也好,有对象也罢。你一定还是像以前一样,凡事都付出百分百,丝毫不差,将每一天过得灿烂充实。爱自己多一点,你会很好的。加油!


十年前的自己  上

On Fire. On Fire. On Fire.

                                                                               

Sexy may not be what a man wants, but it must be what a man loves.
I may not own you, but I shall own your heart.

New template for my blog, time for a change babe.
I am no longer the innocent little girl. I will make you fall in love with me.


生命可贵

如果人有先见之明,那该有多好。
那么,世上不再需要‘后悔’这两个字。

对于近期发生的巴士云顶坠谷意外,我很关注。根据报道,这是历年来马来西亚最严重的长巴交通事故,死伤人数破新高。遗憾一夜之间失去的三十七条宝贵生命。想像一下,有的年纪轻轻,前途还指日可待;有的家里一家六口还等着靠他吃饭;有的前些日子才高高兴兴当了新手爸爸,一转眼那婴儿就成了孤儿。在天灾人祸的面前,我们是多么的手无寸铁,多么的渺小。许多死者的父母在获知噩耗后哭得死去活来,恨自己白发人送黑发人的苦命啊。一切都是那么地突然,仿佛今早离家前女儿给他的那回眸一笑还历历在目,现在却突然成了冷冰冰的尸体;昨夜和妻子的争吵还言犹在耳,现在说离开就离开,做丈夫的连句对不起都还来不及说出口。我仿佛也能感受到那股淡淡的忧伤。此刻,我不再只是一个读者,我是真的站在他们的立场了。替他们感伤,替他们惋惜,替他们落泪。

虽然生还者少之又少,但是我们不可以忘记日后伴随着他们一生的,那永远无法磨灭的阴影。生还者绘声绘影地说,意外发生时,大家惊慌失措地呐喊,好像在搭着没有系上安全带的死亡云霄飞车。在等待救援的当儿,大家就像叠汉堡似的,人压人,到处都是血,脑浆,断肢。要耐心等待救援的到来,还要担心巴士是否会再继续往下坠。是,大难不死必有后福,能够从惨绝人寰的意外中幸存下来,是该烧香拜拜了。但我相信,心理伤痛永远比生理伤痛来得要命,有关单位还务必密切关注生还者的精神状态。忽然很想加入慈济队伍。慈济志工们在这个紧要关头伸出援手,在吉隆坡中央医院太平间设立了援助队伍,提供大家精神上的支柱。我看到,好多的死者亲属都哭倒在慈济志工们的怀里。想想,那是多么的安慰啊。他们,是天使。带来温暖的天使。

不想抨击任何的一方,毕竟一场意外的发生,有太多的因素牵涉其中。迷信的人会说,一个人的生死打从你从娘胎出来那一瞬间就已经冥冥中注定了。但我们怎么可以把这句话当成借口,当成挡箭牌,去忽视那些可以避免的人为因素?试想想,如果巴士司机出发前先检查巴士的刹车器,结局会不会不一样?如果巴士司机在生死关头临危不乱选择驶入缓冲区?如果乘客们都没有赶时间?如果乘客们在知道巴士刹车器有故障后选择下车?如果云顶高原单位尽早改善那蜿蜒的下山路线?
太多,太多的如果。有的死者家属说,如果死者不更改计划突然决定当天上云顶,就不会搭上死亡巴士。如果不选搭这个巴士公司的巴士,就不会发生意外。如果不提早下山,就不会年纪轻轻就赴九泉。

所以我才说啊,如果我们有先见之明,那该有多好。

但不,我们没有。我们只有后悔两个字,这讨人厌的两个字,相伴我们左右。你不会知道自己的生命有多长。八十岁的奶奶有可能还可以再活十年,二十岁的年轻小伙子却有可能隔日就惨遭不幸在意外里去世。你永远也不能说,没关系,我还年轻,生命还长着呢。想做什么就去做吧,想说什么就去说吧。不要认为自己明天还会有机会做你想做的事情。其实,每天早晨能睁开眼睛就是一种福气。是应该要感恩的。

我们没有先见之明,所以我们只能避免作出会让自己遗憾后悔的事。我们只可以活在当下,确保每一天每一分每一秒都没有留下遗憾。我们不要后悔。

想说我爱你就说吧
想道歉就说对不起吧
想去环游世界现在就提起行囊吧
想学小提琴就马上去报名吧
想给年老的父母一个拥抱就快回家吧
想买下那件漂亮的裙子就买吧
想吃什么美食就别顾着减肥了吧
想到相馆和男朋友照相留念就快去吧
想拜访想念已久的中学老师就快拿起电话吧
想在云霄飞车上呐喊那就忘了你的恐惧吧

想做什么,就去做吧。爱你的生命,爱你自己。
因为没有什么比活着大口大口地呼吸还来得可贵。
