bye bye klang....hello KB

Seriously susahnya nak meninggalkan rumah setelah 4 tahun duduk sebumbung dengan famili. Kadang2 saya berharap agar klinikal dijalankan di HTAR je *tp overburdened lak hospital tu. So saya akan bermula dari kosong....mengemas tempat baru, mencari clique baru dan belajar perkara2 baru.

Selepas ini saya akan mula merindui rumah...katil....dan segala2nya tentang keluarga. Let us pray that i wont encountered with annoying housemate or roomate. After spending years at my own home I had a feeling that I don't accept inappropriate behavior anymore. It can turn me into monster.

Anyway my housewife mindset has totally off. Not in the mood for cooking or patting clay mask on my face. Now i'd really want to dedicate myself to clinical training and start being practical.
Got a bus to catch tomorrow morning. ta-ta
all by myself

long live the emperor

kuzco Pictures, Images and Photos

Longevity is one of my favorite topic. Since i got into medical school i just can't drop it....counting my milestone (compared to others at my age..ehm2..) i'd really need to live longer and healthier so that my life mission would be accomplished. Maybe i need some Benjamin Buttons gene so that i'm getting younger everyday (yeah great...people you loved will die before you & you'll end up being LONELY~)

The emperor of China ate Cordyceps sinensis regularly to achieve longevity. Don't be surprised if i got that in my house too but that was not prescribed for me. (^_^) It's not literally keep you alive but cordyceps are known to boost immune system, preserve a good lung function and indirectly helps for a better renal function. My mom didn't catch a cold or fever after a year taking it regularly (thank you Allah, alhamdulillah)

Jeong Jaewon (JJ)
I've found out about a man who lived in this era, which considered long lived+ healthy. He is the oldest CEO in Korea, still working in his 94's. Once the youngest paediatrician in Korea and run his own food company called Jeong's Food group.

So know i'm sharing a longevity tips that worth your life.
1. Study every morning/day to keeps your brain working and prevent dementia. JJ: watch CNN everyday to stimulate language centre
2. Raise crop by himself, it must be organic + of course he has a large lawn.
3. Exercise everyday. Always do stretching and he walks every morning in his 1/2 acre garden.
4. Special normal diet but in SMALL amount. Wanna know what JJ had for breakfast? boiled potato, boiled egg, ginkgo nuts, boiled pumpkin, fresh salad, fruits, rice cake +soy milk. He said, do not eat rice in the morning.

After many years doing this, JJ who'd diagnosed with diabetes in his 40's able to maintain near to normal blood sugar level. His hair considered as a hair of 40 year old. I wonder how is he doing during his housemen years.

finding happyness in nation

If someone ask me why u wanna be a doctor? i would say because i love people more than i love cats or machine. One of my specialty is watching people live their life. Either watching a a book or literally observe (what people do when they eat, when they scold children, when they sneeze)~ i'd really enjoy it. Later I would make some self-realization, at least this is the whole point of doing it.

While our economy is going down, i've just finished reading a book called 'Pelangi Persia' by Dina Sulaiman. Seeing how Iranian live from a perspective of Indonesian makes me realize that we've heard too much crap from the west. Iran is nothing than what i had imagine before. If our government is looking for a role model...please choose Iran as example so that malaysian public will have access to cheap electricity, free water in the public places and lots of picnic spot. Plus, Iranian were so nice to God and guest. (pls remember i'm pissed off with the new electricity tariff...from rm200/month to rm400 this month)

Pls answer the following question:
Its good to have following nationalty.
A. malaysia
B. iran
C. denmark
D. dubai

-religious and have respect to others, regardless what color/religion they are. still can be happy in iran if u are zoroaster, sunni, christian...armenian. a good command in persian language is always an advantage
-lots of 'genius nuts' *iran is the largest pistachio exporter in the world
-they are free from commercialism or pop culture like us, they believe in their own movie & ideology. the president is really a humble man
-older woman can go to college, martyr's family got all the help they need, there's no orphan in Teheran coz all of them at least have been adopted by rich family even though they didn't live together

I watched Oprah and Astro Awani, then i come up with this comparison.
-being said as the happiest nation in the world but have least faith, actually they trust humanity
-people opt for family, happiness, academic, creativity.
-by 4 or 5pm parents will go home/market, be with their kids. I wonder how a doctor's life there
-few respondent have been staying in US said they would never raise a child in US environment
-the higher your income...the higher your income tax would be
-success measured by happiness, not about social class or your earnings
-you can stay as a student in university as long as you want coz education is free, if you're jobless government will still feed you
-the margin between social classes are small, why? coz they're corruption free or maybe minimal

-only 10% locals, the rest are foreigners
-architecture: superb as much as iran N denmark.
-of course not all of them are rich...some are struggling to live everyday BUT
-electricity, water and healthcare are FREE *Dr. Lamees Hamdan even wonder why America didn't provide free health care for the people
-no homeless people
-NO INCOME TAX (awesome!!)
-live next door to mother-in-law are common, not all mother-in-law are like Marie *Everybody Loves Raymond. Live next door to mother-in-law with central kitchen and chef enables you to have 3 meals sent to your house everyday~ lucky you doc

Malaysia can think by yourself.
And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country. John F. Kennedy 
The whole point of this entry is i'm looking for happyness~ There is no perfect land but I think we just have to overcome our limitation. To some extent i dont agree with JFK.

we made choices

Orientasi mbbs baru sahaja selesai. Sepanjang minggu ini saya sering terkenang teman2 yang masih tinggal dan teman2 yang telah pergi. Pergi tidak semestinya kerana rela, namun ada yang memilih untuk pergi. Dalam dunia yang serba komersil; kita akan dihakimi  kerana setiap pilihan pasti membezakan seseorang. Saya memilih dan berusaha untuk kekal di sini agar mencapai satu turning point dalam hidup.

Baru2 ini saya ke pasaraya di kejiranan berdekatan. Takdir menemukan saya dengan rakan sekelas semasa tahun 6. Mengimbau kenangan tahun 1997 yang belum pudar, saya masih ingat rakan yang selalu tidak menyudahkan kerja rumah dan berterusan gagal dalam beberapa subjek. Saya sempat menegur beliau yang bertugas sebagai juruwang. Sesekali rasa sedih/kasihan dalam hati kerana saya sedar beliau menghadapi masalah pembelajaran *mungkin some degree of learning disability. Membayangkan saya ditempatnya adalah satu turning point. Saya mesti bersyukur walaupun saya belum menjadi pelajar terbaik dalam kelas, masih berhutang dengan ptptn, masih belum bertemu jodoh dan masih belum beres dari banyak segi.

Bagi menghadapi hari mendatang saya akan berterusan mencuba:
-makan dengan seimbang kerana saya tahu tidur yang cukup bukanlah satu pilihan yang mampu saya buat.
-menjadi manusia yang tidak mendatangkan masalah+ menyenangkan
-beradaptasi dengan persekitaran baru n have fun
-mengawal emosi apabila keadaan tidak menyenangkan
