bang! bang! die, you, mercy + Double Tree, Kota Bharu

Today marks my very first time terminating a patient from my list partly due to personal reasons. If there's anything that this extension really changed me, that will be putting a limit to being kind. I remember this lad answering me when I asked him the reason he called for my help after lunch break (during which I obviously had a patient sitting in the waiting lounge) to bring him to a bank, of all the people, "Because I knew that you'd never say 'no'".. He thought it was funny and he was grinning, but I really thought that as insulting and how selfish it was of him to put aside my own clinics, knowing that it'll affect my curriculum, for something he could've done on his own. That day onwards, my impression on him changed. I guess all the anger just added up and chose this noon to turn into an explosion of negative emotions. Sorry, but your reverse psychology shit will not work anymore. And to make everything seem my fault repeatedly. Well, fuck that! You have just flicked on my hot-tempered self which I shut down successfully for the past six years. I honestly, sincerely, most essentially clueless on the reason I bore with this over-demanding jack ass and felt worthless myself. Silap masa lah lu, bro, time gua masih berapi sebab kena extend lu nak buat hal kan? Memang gua kasi balas baik punya. Lu membosankan la, tolonglah faham, tak hingin gua nak tengok muka lu lagi. Jangan nak perasan lu punya badan lawa ke apa, lu boleh masuk bakul dan kasi gua tendang masuk longkang.

Nevertheless, I soon felt guilty because although I had my own professional verdict, I did have some bias. So I decided to ring my friend, Dr George. "Look, I know these people very well. You have to put your shoe down and be firm. Because I know you're too sweet to do that, but they'll just take advantage of you and it's your right to refuse these people as your patient", he assured me. A flick of finger, a smile was on my face. "I did the right thing although it's somewhat cruel". Can't remember when I last felt this way - to actually put myself over others. To choose 'Zahirah' rather than 'what if he/she feels this and that way?'.

Change of topic.

So anyway, I discovered a new restaurant - Double Tree which is located on Jalan Kebun Sultan (near the famous Keng Som). It's supposed to specialise in Italian, Japanese, and Thai cuisine. So I decided to give it a try along with Ziyad and Acap (yay, they're back in Kelantan!). The portion was between medium to large and we particularly loved our Double Tree pizza. Its size was slightly larger than Pizza Hut's large pan pizza and they sure were generous with mozzarella cheese. The best part was it's only RM22! Omnomnom! What a deal.

My spaghetti alla posillipo :)

As usual, I'm a pasta-freak so I ordered myself spaghetti alla posillipo. It wasn't too creamy which is why I loved it and the portion was quite large too for a RM16 meal. Ziyad had chicken chop which was somewhat salty while Acap had lamb chop which was painfully uh... tough? I guess they shouldn't have cooked it too long, ah but who am I - a person who dislikes mutton and beef - to say such thing.
