woh!!!

woh... gila packed nenek schedule this time. having Cell & Tissue block which is basically refreshing back matriculation bio, but digging it deeper this time. kind of feeling the pressure a lil bit already. with most of the sensei giving lecture more and more like shinkansen, i'm starting to feel a little pressure. senpai told me about this earlier, but...

anyway, i'v been joining the wushu drum club here where i am the only non-chinese member. a good friend, lim min hui asked me to join. so what? have to admit that felt quite out of place (especially because they speak 90% in chinese, but thanks to many senpai who became my... interpreter :P) at first, but yeah, that thing syok ah. almost everybody who passed by looked at me and sum even had the nerve to point finger at me.
this mentality of chinese stuff is only for chinese and malay stuff is only for malay that most malaysians have really NEED to be changed. what are all those craps people have been saying in tv about malaysia being a beautiful country with many races living HARMONIOUSLY. only one word...

B U L L C R A P

serious cakap. it's not that obvious in places like subang, but once u come here... it's pretty obvious. :(

oh... i haven't told about my roommates, have i? mereka adalah 2 orang yang sangat sangat baik. VERY VERY patient since they can stand my kerenah. sayang sama mereka T_T praises to God :)

blogging at THE PLACE

jeahhh~ here i am, writing a blog at the library of usm.

what can i say about my days here so far...

well, well, well, believe it or not, the lecture is on already. what freaked me out the most is dentistry students have to study medic for the first 3 years. this means, we have to attend both medic AND dental classes. when medic students have their 'self study' period, we'll be having our dental classes and will soon be carving teeth out of a chunk of wax. so, basically, our schedule is frigging packed, altho sum said we are lucky to have lectures that don't drag on till night, but, honey, night is the time for us to go to library to revise since the lecture usually goes on rapidly like shinkansen (bullet train).

2 days bfor, i read Hippocrates Doctors' Oath and The Muslim Doctors' Oath. frankly, i was quite down at that time mainly bcoz of my worries on not able to cope with dentistry. however, after reading those oaths, 98% of my worries subsided.



I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfil according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant:

To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnership with him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art - if they desire to learn it - without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to the sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and have taken an oath according to the medical law, but no one else.

I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice.

I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.

I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work.

Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves.

What I may see or hear in the course of the treatment or even outside of the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep to myself, holding such things shameful to be spoken about.

If I fulfil this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honored with fame among all men for all time to come; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot.

In the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

I swear by Allah ....the Great To regard Allah in carrying out my profession. To protect human life in all stages and under all circumstances, doing my utmost to rescue it from death, malady, pain and anxiety. To keep peoples' dignity, cover their privacies and lock up their secrets... To be ,all the way, an instrument of Allah's mercy, extending my medical care to near and far, virtuous and sinner, friend and enemy.... To strive in the pursuit of knowledge and harnessing it for the benefit but not the harm of mankind.... To revere my teachers, teach my juniors and be brother to members of the Medical Profession joined in piety and charity. To live my faith in private and in public, avoiding whatever blemishes me in the eyes of Allah, His Apostle and my fellow Faithful.

And may Allah be the witness to this oath.



if there r other people who got degree or even PhD... why can't i? it's just the matter of whether i really want this or not. i just have to keep this spirit alive in me. hold myself together. i'm quite worried with the freedom the university grant us. no curfew. we'r free to do anything we want. wear anything we want (as long as jangan bugil ke apa haha). cyber cafe banyak gila and most of them r open to all students FOR FREE. despite this freedom i'm having... i always remind myself of my parents, their advices, their hopes. i miss them a lot. i miss everybody in subang T_T. i really really really appreciate the support that all of you have been giving me. *sob...*
