Gerek Day!

It has been an exhausting week; report submission, UTs, completing team assignments, dealing with faulty software and studying antibiotics for gdp.
To say that I am ‘tired beyond words’ is a bit of an exaggeration ‘cos nothing can be compared to the work load that mom is dealing. So…  I’m just gonna go with very tired. Heh!

Naj has been an excellent help when my computer’s down. I am definitely contented to befriend her! Though she can be annoyingly funny at times, her stable state of mind is of a delight company. If I pass my Lab Management UT with colours with wings, large portion of it is due to her kindness for helping me out with my study. She makes sure she send sufficient stuffs to me via email the day before so that I have enough materials to study. I am grateful and pleased to have her as my friend! Indeed she’s been brought up in a good family :))

Naj! If you are reading this,  I really do appreciate it very much!! ❤ i buy you 3 packets of Gummy Bears if I get A for UT okay:)

Study Partner !

 

Of a total opposite of a helpful friend, Aqeem is soo being a total ass for distracting me from study by throwing blue tack onto my laptop.  After attended the discussion forum, we ( me, Naj, Lili, Khalis & Aqeem) decided to have lunch and continue studying for our lab management UT afterwards. We spend our lunch reminiscing of the past; Sri Lanka trip. Definitely a lunch to remember!  Then, during study time, Lili and Aqeem sat together behind Najwa and I. Khalis was infront of us. What i thought would be a productive and effective time for study with them…wasn’t much of a productive time spent on studying.  Aqeem stealthily threw blue tack onto my laptop screen. I don’t notice until the blue tack builds up on my screen or when either Lili or Aqeem gave a casual remark like ” Fit, cantik laptop” -_-

LOOK CLOSER!!

 

HAHHAHA! Najwa pun tak terlepas dari kene serang.  I think we made a nuisance of ourselves because as crowded as the library can go, the tables and chairs near us were empty. People decided not to be near the crazy students. “Siao ting tong”

Then, Aqeem took out this clever tool which can attach two different kinds of surface together..(like attach hp to the inner walls of the car or something)  ( I don’t know the right term for it) and throw and huge freaking thing onto my laptop when I got my back turn from him. It sticks on my screen! I got shocked la because it has a shattering sound to it.. Laptop’s fine… I was not. Naj and the couple covered their mouths  from laughing too loudly because apparently ” my expression was priceless”

Idiot.

Najwa took that black thing and experiment it on different kinds of surfaces. And guess what people?  She decided to try to stick it on my glasses. So, she threw that black thing on my face and due to the short distance and her excellent aim, it. freaking. sticks. on. my. spectacles.

Idiot. The ‘performance’ received a roaring laughter from everyone…even khalis…. I looked stupid sia.

She begged me to throw it one my face another time and aqeem continue to mercilessly attacked us with his blue tack. Never felt so bullied before in my entire life. Hmmphff….

Hahahhahahah!! Why do i have such weird crazy gerek friends??? So yeah. Crazy afternoon!

On a serious note, I need to get back to studying antibiotics for tmr’s gdp.

All in all, in the midst of a stressful week I thank YA Rabb for surround me with such funny and good friends!  Alhamdulillah!!!

Back to books!!

The opening of Teaching Dispensary

The Grand opening of Teaching Dispensary took place yesterday at W44E which coincides with the first day of RP’s open house. Wohooo!

We had our second lesson in the Teaching Dispensary before it’s official grand opening. Kinda odd if you ask me but our GDP lessons have always been odd from the start. So nah, it doesn’t bother any of us that much.

As usual, we begin the class with drug quiz and ‘Prescription Intervention’ (not really an intervention per say, just noting down what went wrong in the prescription). Class was not as stressful as compared to previous lessons because firstly it was disruptive with staffs coming in and out making sure everything at tip top condition. I understand their level of anxiousness to keep everything in flawless state before the Grand opening. But still, my focus wavered every time someone comes in and goes out. Secondly, there was a celebratory feeling in the air. I can’t help but to anticipate what would be in store for the class as well as Chooty in the afternoon. Until that time comes, I was kept on my toes.

The laid-back team

 

Coming to 11.30am, a lot of DPHM lecturers came down to do last minute inspection of the room as well as students involved. They inspect our attires and those in crumbled coats were sent to the Optometry Room (which is just next door actually) to get it ironed. First time in my whole student life that I have to iron my clothes during lesson time! HAHHAHAHA! A bunch of us were sent down to the next room because of that.

There was this particular scene that I can’t forget as quickly as my GDP knowledge between Faci and Dr C. during the inspection. Faci raised the issue on the bench getting easily dusty and wanted to get the cleaners to quickly dust off everything.Dr C said ‘this kind of things can do ourselves’. So he went over to the dusty spot and dust it off himself. It works fine. But what gets the whole class laughing was the fact that Faci joked ” Sorry ah, I don’t have PhD so I cannot dust it off myself”. We didn’t expected THAT from him. There’s a fine line between making a joke and being rude. I guess that remark sits directly on that fine line. Nevertheless, it was a memorable scene. JC got the guts for it huh? Hahahaha!

Everyone gathered in the Optometry room and get ourselves readied for the Opening of Teaching Dispensaries aftr satisfactory lunch. So when students involved in the session one went out for the ‘show’, session 2 and 3 students stayed back in the Optometry room to wait for our turn. To maintain our anxiousness for the ‘show’, we scare ourselves by telling ghost stories and acting silly.

Session 2 & 3 students!

Fel: I need to protect my boyfriend from being ridiculed by Ganster Fit Fit: YOH! XY: WTH guys…heheheh

Fel: I need to protect my boyfriend from being ridiculed by Fit

Fit: YOH!!

XY: Wth guys…hehehehe…

The post picture of the photo above was hilarious. Exactly aft snapping that picture, one of the staffs came in to look what we were up to. The 3 of us scrambled away from the desk as quickly as our legs allowed. Unfortunately for me, unlike my friends who were on the edge on the table, I was in the middle which make it twice as hard to scramble down quickly. She saw us nevertheless. Can’t express how embarrass I was after that that I have to hide behind the wall.

When it’s student’s from session 2’s turn for show, I panicked and told Naj that if anyone wants to interview us in Malay, it would have to be her because sadly my Bahasa Melayu is very rusty and a lot of maintenance is needed to polish them up. She said if that happened, it will be the end for both of us because her Malay is bad too. Hahaha…(ketawa hambar)

CNA and Channel 5 news crew were there when we entered the Teaching Dispensary. I was awestruck with behind the scene stuff when the reporter memorising her line, camera man and his assistance with loads on his waist. Didnt manage to snap pictures because I left my phone in the other room. Dang it.

So the class appeared in Channel 5 News and CNA yesterday. Our proud moments:

TEAM DAY-4-GDP

Faci, for some reason you are on my blog reading this, on behalf of DPHM students, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the sleepless nights, stresses, sweats and killing some brain cells in the process to create a Teaching Dispensary that stimulate like a real Pharmacy to facilitate in our learning. We definitely appreciate it so much! Although the news did not showcase the behind the scene staffs and lecturers involved, we know that you guys deserved recognition as well!!THANK YOU SO MUCH ALL!

I headed home afterwards with these chicks who couldn’t stop laughing at my version of cat-walking. Thanks guys. -.-|||

In Shaa Allah, to many more proud moments and 1 minute of fames!!

 

 

Saat Lemah Menghentak ~~

Aku selalu berfikir

Kenapa perlu berlari

Mengelak dari berdepan dengan bayangan sendiri

 

Adakah kau tidak lagi berani dulu?

Berani menyatakan yang benar dan yang salah?

Hanya kerana dunia menolak kebaikan yang engkau lakukan,

Dunia memandang sepi kebajikan yang engkau taruhkan

 

Teman,

Engkau terlupa mungkin

Kita bukan mengejar pengiktirafan mereka!

Tapi kita mencari jalan menuju redhaNYA

 

Sabarlah

Sabarlah

Dunia ini tempat persinggahan semata

 

Andai engkau membiarkan jiwamu dicapai dunia,

Aku bimbang

Bimbang – –

 

Syurga itu hanya tinggal pada nama.

Why is society’s idea of beauty so often either ‘white or light’?

Amit Singh wrote a well elaborated article on human beauty – something that I have always wanted to write about but afraid to start writing on it.

“It is clear that beauty is often equated with ideas of whiteness. Many people strive to look whiter in a bid to appear attractive  through manipulation of their hair, plastic surgery or even through skin whitening. The very nature of the existence of skin whitening products only reaffirms the point that people are literally being sold an idea of beauty as whiteness or lightness. ” – Amit Singh

Part of the reason that people feel this way is because of high accessibility to western media. The western creates so much hype and sensations on their movies /soap operas that the rest part of the globe are attracted to them and we subconsciously begin to constructs our own ideas of ‘beautiful’ based on majority of the white celebrities that have come to dominate our taste in entertainment. What’s more social platform such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr promotes fast deliveries of western sensation to us.

The thing is people need to start appreciating their own brand of beautiful and embrace the diversity of beauty in us.

Media Diversified

by Amit Singh

Since model Jordan Dunn took to instagram on the 2nd of January to announce that she will be gracing the cover of the February edition of British Vogue there has been much excitement from some quarters.

The reason for this is because Dunn is the first solo black model to grace the cover of the fashion bible in 12 years (last one being Naomi Campbell in 2002).

Jourdan-Dunn_British-Vogue-Cover

While this is being celebrated by some, others may be wondering how, in this day and age, a renowned fashion publication has over the last 12 years featured only 2 black women on the cover.

It’s not really a huge shock to hear that the fashion industry has a major diversity problem. In fact, it would be more of a shock to hear that it didn’t. Last month the Fashion Spot looked at 44 major print magazines from around the…

Never ending List

I was thinking of making a list of things that I want to do and it just coincides with the upcoming annual resolution list that majority of the human population will come out with followed New Year. I have been known with my impromptu work /activities; I do whenever I feel like it. So…umm this is not my 2015 resolution list (you’ll know why shortly).

Here goes.

Things that I want to do (when i have the money or time for it)(not in any particular order or priority unless otherwise stated):

1) Be a swimmer – heck! I can’t even float upright without any support from life buoy in deep pool at this age.

  • Buy new swimming costume since I have outsize the current one. Hahaha!! If not, you all can see my blubber..
  • Oh! not forgetting the muslimah swimming hoodie. I’ll  definitely look like a snowman with my round face and round body. Note to self: don’t buy white coloured swimwear

2) Continue archery. And beat the hell out of RP archers. Admittedly, they are good. To satisfy my esteem, from the Maslow hierarchy of needs, to boost my confidence, I. Need. To. Destroy. Them. which I am sure it will take forever to master the basics when they only take few minutes in comparison. Whatever… dont care. As long my equipment don’t rust can liao.

3) Quickly find full time job so I can quickly quit my current part time job which can barely sustain my needs in a single month’s pay. Thank GOD I still live with my parents ‘else I have to get shelter from the tent by the beach.

4) Be a runner. Now that I am in charge of a platoon again, I have to be physically fit so that I can do crazy things with them. I am not kidding when I say crazy. Talking about SJAB, side note –> please change to pants when wearing uniform.

5) Be slim and fit and healthy. I started this resolution since I was sec 3. IT IS AN ONGOING PROCESS. I cannot understand why I still cannot achieve this stupid thing until now.  My determination has always been short lived 😦 . I almost reached the journey of being fit when I was in sec 4 (few more kilograms to my ideal weight). After coming back from a holiday in Malaysia however, I allowed myself to let loose and eat whatever the hell I want. I thought I was in controlled in that situation however I didnt know that my cravings and temptations can be more powerful than my determination. That’s the story on how my almost success story went spiral downwards. And my weight naik makin menjadi in polytechnic. Honestly, its hard to get the momentum going. This is the exact reason why my ‘new year’s resolution list’ cannot last for a year. It’s a continuation from the last last last last last last last year. And I am still not done with it!

6) Graduate with few awards. **Priority*** I need a lot of awards now looking at how pathetic my GPA is. Sooo…. STUDY SMARTER!!!!!! 2 more months !!URGHHH

7) BRACES (self explanatory)

8) Khatam Quran. Seriously. I cannot depend on the month of Ramadhan to start this mission anymore. I need to start like now.

– the list will stop here for now-

Maybe I should start doing monthly follow up so that I can get to achieve my goals quickly huh…

So Yep.

Hopefully I am able to motivate myself to do all of these things!

To the endless wishlist and more of it!

 

” Ungrateful, Insolent, Shitty attitude”

” Ungrateful, Insolent, Shitty attitude”

Someone just accuse me of having those miserable character. I can’t blame him anyway if what he say were true. I don’t think he deserve my apology for misbehaving for only the short intense moment. Here’s why:

I cannot fathom why someone has to interfere with the issue he has no idea about. You claimed that you know what happened during my argument with Adil’s. It baffles me so much when you said that. According to logic, you weren’t logical. I was inches away from Adil’s face when he give me trouble. I KNOW WHAT HE SAID AND WHAT HE DIDN’T SAY before i give him a deserving shout to his face. You claimed that he said ” Excuse me” before he shoved his shoulder into my way when I was cleaning the kitchen. You were in the living room for goodness sake. I was inches away from him. AND I AM THE ONE WHO SCREAMED ” TAK BOLEH CAKAP EXCUSE ME KE PE?!?!” to Adil because he didn’t give me one. Perhaps you need a shout to your face too when you accuse me with such. Get your facts right before arguing with me brother.

Also, I cannot understand someone when he said ” I think you deserve it when I treat you like shit because you treat us like shit also” when that someone has long been treating me like shit before I reflect his actions to him. Abang, I think you are suffering from severe long term memory loss. Do consult doctor soon. I worry for you.

“Muka macam gitu nak pakai braces! Sudahlah ! Tak tau bersyukur!!! ”  Are you listening to yourself Abang? The fact that I have this face (which result from having protruded front teeth) is the reason I need braces badly. If you are inferring that  I have admirable features then I thank you but… I don’t think that’s the case. Even making that statement to me yourself, it shivers me in disgust. You are born with genetic lottery for goodness sake! PEOPLE PRAISE MAK AND BAPAK TO HAVE A HANDSOME SON LIKE YOU. Can you think some relevant points in advance before an argument with me? PEOPLE DON’T TAKE SECOND GLANCES AT ME WHATS MORE PRAISING MY PARENTS! Do you understand my rationale of this point??? You are making our parents proud by just being who you are! Do you know how much effort I have to make in order to make them proud?? I have to literally be under the needles to have the same kind of physical standard like you do! Do you understand me? For someone who is going NTU, you need a lot of explanation for a single argument we had.

I am still not settle on remark you made ” I think you deserve it when I treat you like shit because you treat us like shit also”. You are back in this house for only 3 days as compared to everyone else who has been here since we’ve moved here. For some reason, I misbehaved only when you come back home. So to you, it seems like I have always misbehaved. Doesn’t that ring a bell?  I really expect more from you to think better after you have gone through NS. Really such a disappointment. sigh..do i have to really explain to you everything??!?  The fact that I misbehaved is because you irritate the fuck out of me when you are home! You blast that music of yours like as if everyone enjoys the music. You interrupted my peace. And it irks me more to see that mak always treat you better than me. I helped her with household chores and stuff and yet I get no such sweet talk from her! I have give up recently. That owing to the mountains of unfolded clean clothes on the chairs and unclean dishes to the sink. I have done so much yet I dont get what I want. I HAVE DONE SO MUCH! SO MUCH! And the moment I give up yall start saying I didnt help with household chores and stuff and I am lazy and stuff. Incredible that yall ALWAYS NOTICE THE BAD STUFF AND REMAIN IGNORANT ON THE GOOD THINGS I HAVE DONE. Thanks guys. Yall have been such a supporting family members.

The root of the problem is that yall need to understand the situation before accuse people as such. CONTEXT IS IMPORTANT PEOPLE.

Yep.

I LITERALLY HAVE 4 PEOPLE AGAINST ME in this house. 1 remain neutral. If you think by giving nasty remarks helps me to become better person, maybe you guys should re-evaluate your points. Please. Or better yet, put yourselves in my shoes. It’s already hard to be emotionally attach in a family where they don’t talk about feelings openly, it make things twice as difficult to be kept accused of things that are poorly understood.

IRKS ME TO THE CORE THAT I AM NOT GIVEN THE TIME TO EXPLAIN MYSELF and yet I am to be blamed for everything.

Do message / whatsapp me your rebuttal points after you read this ..if you have one. It will make us civilised.

Natural Beauty

As I was immense in my boring hobby of scrolling down my FB wall, I stumbled across this picture which my friend posted.

image

 

Masha Allah! Such beauty ain’t it? She took the picture at the convenience of her home. Such a lucky girl. I really could not help but to be mesmerized of such beauty. So I asked her permission if I could get this picture posted on my blog so I can fill my satisfaction of staring at this masterpiece without going to someone’s account for fear of being labelled as ‘stalker’. Hahaha! Masha Allah!

Well, now that I am into the topic of Nature, it’s time to let you guys in a ‘secret’. I am actually a huge fan of enjoying the company’s of nature. Mmm… the way I put it seems odd. Basically I am nature lover. [Ha! short and sweet!] And I have been actually observing the moon rise and moon set lately. It’s actually kinda cool! Especially when the moon is at it’s optimum phase of a full moon and it shone brightly at night! Or even a bright gibbous moon can bring such comfort. Allah the Almighty! My favourite part while observing moon rise is when I actually can see the moon rising behind the tall HDB building across my block. The whole experience is spectacular whether or not its gibbous or crescent or full moon. I cannot get enough of that.  Cloudless night is the best night to observe them moons. I didnt catch much about moon set. Perhaps its because of the inconvenience of time and also a lot of obstructions to view the moon clearly.

Remember about the short lived fiasco of super moon in August this year? Guess what? I actually manage to catch it! Actually I am not sure if it’s super moon though. But it was huge than the usual ones that i came to love.  All praises to Allah for the opportunity!! 

supermoon

I love how the sky radiates from the moon light. This is the view from my balcony.

It was enormous than usual! I was actually eating snacks when I discover about the size of the moon. My legs naturally stood rooted to the floor, I can’t chew my food or even close my mouth. I couldnt do anything because I was awestruck by the beauty of the moon. Subhahanallah!  So that whole night, I bask in the beauty of the moon!

moon

I really wanted to share about the moon so I posted on LINE

When I traveled to SL the other time, I was too given the opportunity to witness the sunset from my room balcony.

I miss the warm feeling from the sun setting

 

 

It just that sometimes while catching a glimpse of natures beauty, all the worldly things that are happening around just fade while you are focus to the majestic view ahead. I am grateful for such opportunity and be given such blessing to have eyes to witness how beautifully Allah has paint the sky. I am in love with how orderliness, timely and sophisticated with how the world works. Thank you Ya Rabb!
