Was internet-less the past 4 days cos I was away in Kuala Kubu Bahru Hospital doing my rotations..It’s somewhat like a camp, had to stay there for 4 days and 3 nights, but not really also, don’t know how to explain..so many things happened there and I don’t wanna flood twitter or facebook so just blog about it lah..=)

I survived :

4 days…
– without a proper bed, pillow and blanket.
– of cold baths, lots of sweat and no air-cond
– with 6 other awesome people in a room
– of mosquitoes attacking me, even with repellent on
– of minimal studying =(

3 days…
– “working” in the hospital..clerking patients, talking to them and doing physical examinations
– stalking pregnant ladies hoping that there will be a delivery so that we can watch
– stalking A&E for interesting cases
– eating almost every kind of food they had in the town. well, that was fun..let me elaborate..we went to town, and walked around the whole area looking for good stuff and trying out almost everything..we had ice-cream (which was not that great), waffles (so-so), taufu bakar (was ok, sotong was nice), kaya puffs & tau sar piah (yummy!), and some dai chau place with annoying music where we went for 2 nights straight..
– irritating nurse Rita and giving her headaches =P
– seeing Dr Lim and learning from her..”Luck, and Enthusiasm” *with both fist up in the air* her famous phase.

There was/were:
– 2 mat rempits who got into a very bad accident and gave us the chance to see awesome suturing..
– 5 patients who let us do physical examinations on them
– 2 patients with really interesting findings
– 1 gecko that scared Dr Lim like mad and woke everyone up this morning
– 1 waterfall outing that was totally random and it wasn’t really a waterfall but we had fun
– 1 long night of chit-chatting, with a lot of interesting “findings” 😉
– many awesome friendships made, memories to keep and experiences to share

All in all, I’d say it was quite a good trip even though I really wanted to go home so badly on the first day..even thought of running away..haha! but yeah, I think it opened up my eyes and mind to a lot of things which will not be shared here and I really do appreciate the time we spent together, just doing what we have to do and having fun at the same time..=)

Now it’s back to life and reality = EOS in 2 and a half weeks time. ARGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

Was having a really long and tiring week…It was Nursing week for my batch..(don’t simply think about other things now..i know how u all function..haha) Nursing week is where we, the students go to 2  different hospitals for a day each and observe what the nurses do..hence, nursing week..but basically, it was go hospital, see whatever u wanna see, follow the nurses around and stone most of the time..

Day #1 – Port Dickson Hospital. It’s about one and a half hours away from here..a small little hospital with only 4 wards..very quiet that hospital but the worst part is..it’s SO hot!! like seriously…no air conds at all, the fans were moving at like power 1 or smth and everyone was sweating like crazy..what kinda crappy environment are they giving to the patients la..? if im not sick i go there also feel like i’m gonna get sick..sigh~ really made me think about “Theme Hospital” the game where u can build your own hospital..I wanna do that..haha..so didn’t get to see or do much that day..just did our “walk abouts” and talked to some patients..So, what did i get out of this trip? One, I wanna build a nice hospital with air conds and nice beds, good ventilation and get good nurses who actually entertain students who’ll come for their nursing week. (haha!) Two, I’m quite convinced to go into pediatrics considering the way some of the doctors and nurses handled the kids..man, feel so sorry for them lah..Three, Malaysian hospitals need some help..like seriously.

Day #2 – Seremban Hospital. It’s nearer this time..about an hour away only..Can’t say that it’s awesome but definitely better than the PD hospital..It’s bigger, 8 floors and alot of wards..BUT, still no air cond!!! I tell you….M’sian weather already hot enough, some more so many people in one little ward, so many nurses and doctors running around..how to breathe la? Almost couldn’t take it when the nurse was telling us about all the charts and stuff..the only thing that was going through my mind was “I don’t really care bout the charts anymore..hurry up and finish..I wanna faint dy..” other than the environment, it was quite a fruitful day I reckon..got to see alot of interesting cases which i don’t think i’ll go into details about and I think I did learn quite abit today..I think it’s good that they let us go for this kinda things, makes the things we read about kinda come to life for awhile, lets us feel what it’s like and if you like it, then you know you’re at the right place..After this trip, I’m still convinced about pediatrics..so we’ll see how la many years from now whether I’ll really go into that..haha..

So yeah, that’s about my trips to the hospitals..ask me more about what I saw if u really wanna know..some are REALLY interesting..haha! =P

Also, since like a few weeks ago..i started having this sudden obsession with clouds..I think it’s because of the rainy days that KL actually has blue skies and the clouds actually look nice on some days..for me, it’s like having  a new piece of art to look at every day..it changes every single day and u wouldn’t know what to expect every time..cool right? think about it..

Just got back from a super AWESOME trip to KK for Revolution..about 700 plus young people packed up CCC and we had an awesome time! check this out if you don’t know what i’m talking about..Right now, feeling really tired (was a long long weekend but was worth it), happy (that Revo KK went so well and so many ppl were touched and blessed), abit emo (cause I really miss home)..just a whole load of emotions all mixed together..I think I should just go to sleep then maybe i’ll be better tomorrow..I don’t know why I always feel like this when I come back to KL from home..it’s not like it’s my first time here or anything..sigh~

So yeah…exams are coming up real soon..really feeling very stressed and stretched..Gotta focus already this coming few weeks..

Need. To. Do. Well.

U-turn is on as well..Will be praying and believing for a miracle..I really need one. REALLY.

I hate this part right here..

Sorry for using your song, Pussycat Dolls..

but I really do feel this way..I don’t like saying goodbyes, not before, not now when my family is going through such a hard time..I really wished there was something I could do, some way I could help, guess not..After a few weeks back on the east side, I’m really enjoying the family reunions, the good food, the slumber-ness, hang outs and stuff..now I’m back on the west side again..no more lazy days, no more family, no more astro, no more home cooked food, no more guitar…*sniff*

Was really sad to leave Kuching today, weather didn’t help..while i was waiting for the plane to take off, it was pouring outside…As the rain flowed, the tears did as well..was not easy to say those kinda goodbyes when you don’t know when you’ll see them again, if u know what I mean..So yeah, once again, life goes on, I’ve gotta do what I’m here to do…just wish my family is here with me..feel quite lonely sometimes when it’s just me and the four walls..

I don’t want to be emo, but I can’t help it…I wanna go home…

that’s what my past few days have been…Went for OA trip on the 9th-11th of Jan..it’s was seriously awesome!! Totally different from my 1st trip, this time round, it was much harder, more tiring, more injuries and more goats..haha! but God’s presence was SO there…really wanna thank God for a great trip, with a great team…i really had so much fun..=) 

We met in Elder Joy’s house at 7am in the morning, did our final packing, had devotion then headed to this place in Kota Kemuning for breakfast..nice fish cake..haha! then we began our 4 hours drive all the way to Ringlet for lunch and met Pr Markus at his house..

p11505281This is Pr Donis’ son..SO cute!

Off to the hiking point..which was MUCH further than where all the other teams started because it rained 3 days non-stop and there were alot of landslides so the van couldn’t go in..we had to hike an extra hour to get to the “actual” hiking point..

p1150530Half an hour after we started hiking, my foot went into some mud which was really deep..
there goes my shoe, all wet n dirty..it had a hole on the sole as well…*sigh*

After 4 hours of hiking with 5 stops, we finally reached Terlimau! it was already 6.45pm and we were all exhausted..rested a little before dinner time..then we had our 1st kebaktian..after that, balik, debrief, tidur..that night it was SUPER cold..everyone couldn’t sleep except me cos I tidur mati wan, nothing can stop me..haha! I did wake up a few times though to hide myself in the sleeping bag..found out the next morning that none of them slept cos it was SO cold..they were all shivering and trying to keep themselves warm..so kesian la..So on Saturday, children ministry…

The one in the middle is the blue suit baby..he’s a lil bit bigger now..haha

Then we went outside to play with balloons

Mark got bullied by one of the kids..he was trying to comb Mark’s hair..

p1150602The kids playing with some cars that they made themselves out of wood and don’t know what..so creative kan? the tayar can come out wan sometimes..the one of the left has a jagung on it..

p11506071We saw some really cute puppies that we wanted to kidnap back home..
but Elder Joy said no..haha

p1150609Super cute kan? Like a baby…

 In the afternoon, we followed abang Bahpol to the other village called Lemoi..it was another one and a half hours hike in and one and a half hours out..we went to visit a family there and had a mini kebaktian..on the way back, we were so motivated by the thought of “mandi sungai” then tiba-tiba it rained…crushed our hopes, so we walked in the rain all the way back..so emo kan? =P i felt really disgusted that night cos haven’t showered since the day before so I went and shower in the toilet..was gross, lots of insects, water was like ice, but it was worth it la..felt so refreshed after that…

p1150631Sern Yi and I cooked dinner that night..we had 8 dishes!!! super awesome rite? haha!! 

p1150673Children ministry on Sunday morning…prayer time..=)

p11506671We fed them yummy cookies..so they were all really good that morning..this is the lil brown boy..We were thinking of kidnapping him too and Elder Joy agreed but then we couldn’t fit him into our bags..oh well..

p11506811We said our last goodbyes and left Terlimau around 11.10am..*sniff*

It was another 4 hours plus hike out again but this time, I sprained my ankle…super alot of injuries lah me this time…but it was truly an unforgettable trip..got banyak lagi that I didn’t blog about…after we got a ride back to Pr Markus’ place and got our car, we went to Ringlet again for lunch..superb wild boar meat…*drools* after lunch, we went to the market near tanah rata, did some shopping and headed home…Super tired + deprived of shower + didn’t pangsai for 3 days = Champion! 

So yeah, that was like a summary of what we did during our OA trip..now im back in KK dy..so fast right? haha..I’m getting sick of traveling already..next Monday I’m flying off to Kuching and then back to KL again on the 31st..AirAsia should really consider giving out some loyalty card or something..haha..good idea, right? =P
