What will I be when I grow up...

The medical specialty for you is.... OB/GYN

OB/GYN is the best of all specialties. As an OB/GYN, you have chosen one of the most noble fields in medicine. You will work longer hours than a surgeon, but without the high pay. But you will still do it because you have a passion for the field. And after you rush to the hospital at 3 in the morning for the third night in a row to deliver a baby, the parents will turn around and sue you if there were any unforeseeable complications, which is why your insurance rates are so ridiculously high. Come to think of it, OB/GYN?? What were you thinking?

To find out what specialty best fits your unique personality, go to:

Got this from Aziah's blog.. Try it, guys!!

Lucky - Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat (cover - singing only)

I need a break from my literature review!! Found this great video on youtube where this guy (singindork888) plays his guitar and sings Jason's part and allow girls to sing Colbie's part. Creative huh?
This song is actually requested by my sister-in-law, Arnita Ramlan.. I couldn't grab hold of a partner to sing a duet with me. I was thinking to record this song with singindork888 with me playing the guitar as well.. but later on maybe.. when time allows me to.. =)
In the meanwhile, please do enjoy this version~!! =)

4th Year, 3rd Rotation-2nd week = SPEC SURG: PLASTIC

Plastic surgery is not too bad.. =)
I thought I was going to hate this rotation (as I am not a major fan of surgery, esp orthopaedic), but surprisingly it is quite interesting. Especially after seeing a breast reduction and reconstruction surgery using latissimus dorsi flap.

I am just quite disappointed that I couldn't go to ward round & OPD today due to my reaction to MMR vaccine which I got yesterday afternoon. I'm feeling feverish and got a headache and they wouldn't go away after 2 bouts of paracetamol! (and I am not a big fan of medications!)

I am actually vaccinated against both measles and mumps. Unfortunately, after the student health centre did my blood test, it turns out that I am not vaccinated against rubella, hence the commotion of getting MMR again, giving me this prodromal symptoms and sore left arm.

On Monday, my group mates & I had to go to the health centre to check our BCG status. They just wanted to inspect our scars, and I have a huge scar on my deltoid region!! Unfortunately still, people from Malaysia had to do Mantoux test and chest X-ray as we come from a high endemicity region. *sigh*. 20 euros down the drain just to get the test done which stings like hell. I hope they won't make a big hassle about getting the X-ray done because I don't plan to do so.. I have no idea how much it is going to cost us to do an X-ray here, as the GP said, "it's up to the hospital whether they want to charge u or not.." (???) I don't plan on spending on an X-ray when I don't have any symptoms of TB nor any other chest problems, thank you..

-sick & annoyed-

Did 40 laps today! Phewww~!
It's been ages!!!!!!

p/s: 3 entries in one day... I must be really bored....

Elizabeth Chandler

I was watching "The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2" the other day, and I found out that the screenplay writer of the movie is Elizabeth Chandler. (Yes, I read the credits). =P
I suddenly remembered one of my favourite love-story books when I was in my teens, in the late 90s. (Gosh, I sounded old...)

The book was a trilogy entitled "Kissed by an Angel". Well, obviously it consists of 3 books: Kissed by an Angel, The Power of Love & Soulmates. This trilogy is something that you can read over and over and over again.. I lost track of how many times I read that book and cried everytime.. (sappy, I know). Girls would defintely like this book, especially if you have a strong exaggerated sentimental values, like me (a.k.a. a cry-baby) *T_T*

I think it's the same Elizabeth Chandler, the screenplay writer and the author of the novels. But definitely not the one who wrote the poem, "The Slave-Ship" in the 19th Century. =P

May 2009!!!

Angels & Demons... my favourite book~!! Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No more X-Factor for me, thank u...

My favourite act was voted out from X-factor on Saturday, and I vowed not to watch that show ever again!! Well, for this season at least.. =P. Austin Drage is talented, people!! I believe he'll make it big someday.. He's still young anyway.. Good luck, Austin~!!

This is the video that made me fall for this Brit:
I think he wrote this song, entitled "Out of My Head"

Dangerously in Love - Beyonce (cover)

This is one of my favourite songs. Recorded this about 2 wks ago..
The lyrics:

I love you.
Baby I love you
You are my life
My happiest moments weren't complete
If you weren't by my side
You're my relation
In connection to the sun
With you next to me
There's no darkness I can't overcome
You are my raindrop
I am the sea
With you and God, who's my sunlight
I bloom and grow so beautifully
Baby, I'm so proud
So proud to be your girl
You make the confusion
Go all away
From this cold and messed up world.

I am in love with you
You set me free
I can't do this thing
Called life without you here with me
Cause I'm Dangerously In Love with you
I'll never leave
Just keep lovin' me
The way I love you loving me.

And I know you love me
Love me for who I am
Cause years before I became who I am
Baby you were my man
I know it ain't easy
Easy loving me
I appreciate the love and dedication
From you to me
Later on in my destiny
I see myself having your child
I see myself being your wife
And I see my whole future in your eyes
Thought of all my love for you
sometimes make me wanna cry
Realize all my blessings
I'm grateful
To have you by my side.

Every time I see your face
My heart smiles
Every time it feels so good
It hurts sometimes
Created in this world
To love and to hold
To feel
To breathe
To love you.

Dangerously in love
Can't do this thing
I love you , I love you, I love you
I'll never leave
Just keep on loving me
I'm in love with you
I can not do
I cannot do anything without you in my life
Holding me, kissing me, loving me
I love you
Dangerously in love.
