有者甚至只因为plantar fasciitis（即heel那里生了骨刺而导致脚板疼痛）而想借此申请成为OKU-即orang kurang upaya.
倘若没人可依靠，没选择时，你会选择什么？smile and embrace life or become dependant?

Trying hard to beat carbohydrate craving!!
Today was the first time I was late to work place....woke up at 6.52am despite slept earlier the night before...rushed to work at 7.15am...reached ward 7.20am...only able to review one patient and rushed to daily pass over round at 7.30am...Luckily I wasn't permanent houseman...was posted at clinic from morning until 5pm,that's the happiest moment.No ward works,yay!:) then A&E shift from 5-9pm.clerked one open fracture..Around 9pm when was about to leave,2 patients deteriorated simultaneously and needed resuscitation in the ward, which is rare occasion as there wont be many emergency cases for orthopaedics other than fat embolism, open fracture, compartment syndrome,blah blah...in reality. Stayed back to be Kepochi...to learn how to resus patient,practically.The scariest thing that i am afraid to encounter now is when patient collapses, I will be panic and alone and dont know what to do.So it is good to stay back and helped the senior houseman...So that i know what to look for next time when patient collapses.
Will be attending Basic Life Support course on 20/12/11. Hope it is helpful.

Him: What's your name?I cant recognise you with the mask on. Please take it down.
Me: Ok. (took it down).I am Ong.
Him: Ok, even with your mask down I also can't remember who you are.
Me: Ok. (无奈,cant help but shrugging)
Him: Ok, you can put on your mask now. I can understand why you are putting your mask on...

Never I thought that, the day when the number of housemans flourish excessively, will be the day when I was in 3rd year(2008). The number of houseman being produced during that year doubled from 1000 to 2000+
Everything was so peaceful until when I was in 3rd year, our lecturers and professors began to complain about the drastic increment of the number of houseman...
Some foresee that the future housemans will be undertrained because of their huge number and as the consequence of inbalance specialist to housemansss ratio...
When I was in 4th and 5th year, the issue is so hot...and never can be solved...
By the time I graduated, the number of houseman produced per year is 4000....
And this year the government finally plan " to do something"...which is stop giving permission to build new medical school...
And so we are, trapped in this transition and revolution.
I just finished my Induksi at Lumut, Perak...
This year, quite a number of us got posted to distric hospital with specialist. We got our 4th choice...Ya...not in our application form...
I was initially sent to a recently upgraded district hospital in MY HOMETOWN.
However, I made an appeal...
Even though I know all the big general hospitals currently are cramped with housemans...
I dont know whether my decision was correct or not. It can turn out to be detrimental to my housemanship and to my training. People used to say housemanship is the most important part of our career...
I am on the way to explore it...
Finally I got my appeal approved, to a general hospital.
I told one of my good friend, I am afraid I will regret regarding the decision I made.
I am afraid I will regret not because of the place that I go will be cramped and full of housemans, but the chances that I let go, to serve in a district hospital...
It might be a better option for those who trapped under this revolution or transition...
To be continued...

Instead of half curly, let's make it 100% curly so I can go out without being embarrassed...haha...
I just don't know how to adjust the flash...looks so pale, so geli...
Up until now, 2x rebondings and 2x curly hair...Tie~
What else can girls do to their hair??
Don't tell me to go bald...
After reading, maybe a bit of relief,huh? Eh............
So nice, support your head with the gate...
So nice, if I can stay at home like you do, without worrying where I will be posted.
So nice, if I can stay at home like you do, without afraid of being lonely.
So nice, if I can stay at home like you do, without worrying how my future will be.
So nice, If I can stay at home like you, I can accompany Pa&Ma to watch their soap opera...
So nice to be at home...
I don't wanna work!!!I feel so insecure!

You can check on the below link which, was shared by my friends on facebook. An article to ponder...
Undeniable, it is quite demotivating for those who wants to be a doctor. But, it is true in many aspects...it encompasses updates for the current system and situation in our country too...
A mother asked me, whether it is okay to let her daughter, who is currently doing a "Pre-medical" programme for 5 weeks at X university, to study medicine...
Instead of promoting how good it is to study medicine, I told her all the downsides of doing medicine first...
Ya, maybe I wasn't suppose to say that.
It's better to tell the worse truthful facts first, so the mother and daughter will have anticipation of what kind of field she is going to embark on...
If she is still adamant, then good. She most probably can complete the 5 years course with her will.
I told her importantly, this is what your daughter wants... (and not what u wish)
I've seen friends who study medicine to fulfill their parents's vanity.
Despite so much of arguments, parents still believe medicine is the best for their brilliant children. There will be halos above their head wherever they go.
This is so wrong. Some give up themselves, some stop going to class, some stop attending lectures, even lose passion to do everything.
What I see is most people start studying medicine with great passions...
Or precisely before studying medicine people are so engross to pursue a place in medicine, but once they start their passion started to wear off day by day...
The passions are all eaten up by failure to pass the exams in medical school; feeling dumb at all times; feeling exhausted all the time due to busy schedule; being drilled and sometimes even humiliated by the superiors(to make u stronger of course...); sleep deprive; stressful environment,lack of freedom, etc...
If the will of becoming a doc is not from yourself, then forget about it...
It is hard to find reasons to keep going on when you encounter failures, or the above mention...
She ask me anxiously why doing medicine is so so tough, then you still choose to do it???
As if I wouldn't have ended up talking like that if I were to love medicine so much...
I said, I never thought that it will be so difficult, especially to deal with the pressure of passing the final exams....and no one ever tell me these~~~
It's not honest oso to tell you all the benefits of becoming a doctor without telling you the downsides. Always tell the good and bad things so that people can weigh it themselves.
Of course, doing medicine, at times, are rewarding...
At last, I wish her and her daughter all the best.
So good huh, nowadays, some universities offer "Premedical course"...
I totally agree with that.

3 Idiots, an Indian movie starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor~One of my favourite. It's a very inspiring comedy. It makes us ponder about the current education system.. This movie made me laugh and cheer up my gloomy day during final year....
Free to be watched from youtube~
Can't find the official trailer which has English subtitle. But the above is a classic one from the movie. There are more to laugh from this movie.

Stepping stone, like an elevator, to reach something higher, something you really desire.
Sometimes life is not that straight forward.
In "Beautiful Boxer", a Thailand movie based on a true story of how a man become a woman. He embarked himself into brutal kick boxing in order to earn money, so that he could undergo operation to become a woman.
Professional kick-boxer is not her destiny. Her destiny is, a woman. How paradoxical and irony, that, he plunged himself into a masculine world in order to reach to the feminine self.
Tun Mahatir himself does not want to become a doctor at first place. He wanted to study law. But his family could not afford. And he got scholarship to do medicine. So he did. Because he wanted to become a leader, he wanted to be heard.
Politics and leadership is his destiny. Doctor, not.
People might say life is short to fulfill so many dreams.
But, never forget what you really want to be.
Whatever you endure, just treat it as a stepping stone.
This is a bad sign...I seldom remember my dreams.
This means subconsciously, I am experiencing subtle stress!
I am going to Marina Island Resort Pangkor this coming 14 June for Induksi.
During Induksi, I will know where I will be placed for housemanship.
So reluctant to get back to work...
I guess realizing that holiday is coming to an end is a stress...
I was having this horror dream in my sister's room...
Just saja wanna sleep in her room...without her consent...hehe
Sleep paralysis struck me in the middle of the night...Something was pulling my head. It's pulling me to the right side...I couldn't move my body.I tried to resist...I tried very hard to open my eyes, when I finally succeed, I was kind of iffy whether I saw a dark blurry figure or merely a shadow of the corner...
Lucliky I am short-sighted.
I was scared, thinking of the ghost story that my cousins once told me(something wanna drag her down the bed)...
I tried to scream but to no avail as if my voice was swallowed...
Finally, I found myself could move again...I was frightened...
I ran to my mother's room quickly to sleep with her...
And then I was asleep...
When I woke up, I found out that I was stil sleeping in my sister's room.
Again, I forced myself to wake up and went to my mother's room...
I fell asleep and woke up, and Hell! I found myself was still trapping in my sister's room...
And it went on and on...
I was trying to escape...But I was trapped.When would I break the cycle?
I was confused...which was real...which was dream...??

Today I learn some facts about sunscreen. I seldom put them on my face, as it makes my skin oily, unless I am playing outdoor activities whereby I will let the sun kisses my skin. But it is interesting to know and some more being mid 20s is an awkward age...The skin condition is at its peak and it is going to deteriorate afterwards if we don't take good care!
Thanks to The Star,educated me regarding this topic.
I know there are UVA and UVB, but I do not know the fact that UVA penetrates deeper into our skin and causes damage to the DNA in our cell.UVA is also the culprit behind wrinkling and photoageing. Whereas, UVB causes sun burn.
SPF, which is the key words that most of us concern about when purchasing a sun block, is used to shield UVB, to prevent sun burn. It does not give the protection towards UVA.
The higher the SPF number, means the longer you can stay under the sun without getting sun burn. It does not offer higher protection.
Before this, I thought SPF could shield both UVA and UVB।
It turns out that the "PA+" is the one that shields the UVA.
"PA" stands for Protection Grade of UVA.
PA+ is sufficient for most activities but if you intend to stay longer under the sun, opt for higher PA like PA+++.
The presence of certain compounds like:zinc oxide, titanium dIoxide,avobenzone in the sunscreen help to deflect the UVA.
And so I dig out all the sunscreens that I have. Found few bottles, as I will never able to finish them...
Sunplay sunscreen, SPF130 PA++, by far, the highest SPF that you can find in the market. Water resistant, liquid base and non sticky. Small amount for great surface area. Really non-sticky. Easily portable as its size is small...
Bought this from Krabi, Thailand. Cant find this in M'sia. The latest sun block from Nivea. Suitable for sea& beach activities. SPF50 PA++, with immediate COLLAGEN and DNA protection! This is really new. Water resistant and claims non-sticky(which i still find it a bit sticky). Good thing about this product is you don't have to apply 20mins prior to outdoor activity, its effect is immediate~and when I wash it off, my skin feel soft and supple~this may be attributed to the collagen in it. Bad thing: need great amount to cover the body compared to liquid base Sunplay product.+sticky~
Banana Boat Sport, SPF 50, UVA&UVB protection, sweat resistant, water resistant, fragrance free and non-greasy. No PA written on it. But the ingredients include oxybenzone, can be used to shield UVA. Still find it a bit greasy...
So say no to more than that~~

Sigh...tempted because of the promotions...
Bought the sleeping mask that I've been longing for a long time:the Bio-essence sleeping mask, I guess it's the best for lazy people like me, who dislike to lay on the bed doing nothing and seeing nothing with a typical mask on the face.
I hope my sensitive skin won't reject it...pls pls pls...
If it does, then I'll have to pass it to my sis...hehe.
If it doesn't, I hope it will make my skin moisturized, and helps defend against ageing!

I found out reviews are very useful after I read it from tripadvisor.co.uk.
I would like to pay compliments to Haleeva Sunshine Hotel at Ao Nang, Krabi, Thailand.
The manager, Sun, is a friendly guy. He speaks good English. So do his staffs, use understandable English. As I say, you don’t have to worry whether you can speak Thai or not at place like Ao Nang, Krabi.
We felt warm and comfortable staying at Haleeva Hotel.
Being a traveling student, of course we want everything economical and within our budget. We rent the room with RM50 per pax (RM100 per room for standard room). And it is worthwhile.
Despite being rated as 3 stars hotel, but the service, cleanliness and politeness of the staff are 5 stars in standard.
The location is very strategic. It is about 5-10 minutes walk to the beach. Along the walk, you will find stores, restaurants and massaging&spa centres.
The 7-11 24 hours store is just within 1 minute walk.
There is a motorcycles rental shop at the hotel’s front door. We rent a bike for RM20 per day. Not far away (within 30s of ride), there is a fuel station where you can top up the fuel for RM3.50 per L. Honestly, it is very cheap if you want to travel to Krabi Town or explore Ao Nang/Krabi Town by using motorcycle.
Anyway, if you don’t have any idea, there are tourist information centres within 1 minute walk. You can get free pamphlets or map of Ao Nang. The hotel itself provides packages, tours, and information to customers. We made our booking to Phi Phi island through the counter.
Sun, the manager, like his name, has bright characteristic. He is a very helpful and informative guy. He would recommend us what restaurant to go, where to visit and even spend time to draw map for us. In case we get lost, we can even call him for help. He even took effort to remember our names. We have 6 people and he could remember all of us!
His staffs also showed hospitality.
Will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.
Next time can stay at room with Jacuzzi~~>-<

"Water For Elephant", 两年前在书展里发现的一本书，很想买，可是那本是翻译的书，我比较喜欢原文。而且书皮烂了，所以我没买。
虽然有家里还有很多读物，好比Dalai Lama的My Spiritual Journal，Tun Mahathir的A Dr In the House（很厚的一本书！），Naseem 的The Crying Tree...都是妈妈买的。

But wait, don't be fooled...
This is actually a MOSQUE, yes, a Muslim mosque, called Beijing Mosque at Rantau Panjang, Kelantan.
This mosque is very unique in its way. It is a fusion of Chinese and the Islamic architecture.
Even the gate resembles the Chinese style.
Etiquettes when the entering the vicinity/compound of the mosque: proper attire covering the aurat(of course it includes the genitalia. In Kelantan, wearing appropriately conservative means you are suppose to cover your arms/forearms, and preferably above the ankles), courtesy and good manners...etc...
In Kelantan, there is no dress code or restriction for non-Muslim. But, being a conservative state, people will stare and gaze at you if you are wearing too inappropriately exposed. People always have misconception, that non-Muslim women in Kelantan are required to wear tudung(veil). In fact, by using common sense, there is no such rule.
There are many(20+) temples at Tumpat, they are greatly influenced by Thailand.
The Dragon Boat Temple, or Wat Maisuwankiri, is the most impressive to me so far, for its spectacular carvings on the pillars, or precisely the whole building, is finely and creatively carved. The above board says : This temple is located at Kampung Bukit Tanah in Tumpat. It is said to have been concstructed around 400 years ago by expert craftsmen from Thailand...Cost: RM300,000. Width:4 hectares. It hosts a number of celebration like Wesak Day and Lunar Chinese New Year...
The Sleeping Buddha Temple, Wat Phothivihan.
Dont know what the picture trying to tell.with naked humans climbing on the tree full with thorns..Dogs and eagle are trying to hunt them...maybe it means this world is fulled of ppl trying to torture another by forcing them with dire situation.or it's human basic instinct to survive despite physically hurt ..or simply means punishments for the wrong things they did in the past?.......
