What an experience!!

Us 3 girls from Carriglea who are left in Cork went out for dinner earlier on with some of our classmates in an Indian restaurant nearby. Then we decided to walk to city centre for a cup of coffee and dessert. It feels as if the day is still early though it was already 10pm when we were walking home. When suddenly, this drunk insane guy from across the street saw us and decided to cross the street towards us with his drunken-gait.

For those who doens't know what Cork is like on a Sunday night, I'm telling u, it's quiet and empty... So when this crazy guy was following us, we picked up our pace and walk straight on. We walked even faster when we heard footsteps getting closer. Then we realized it was another girl walking alone so fast and basically we were having a walk-aton race between the 4 us.. because the drunk was just a few steps behind. We were so scared that we started running because he was so close, then he shouted, "Sh*t!!".

My friend's theory was he wanted money from us to buy more booze. We were almost saved when he wanted to cross to the other side when he saw a couple walking towards the other way, but he almost got hit by a car and decided to stick to our side of the road and keep on following and shouting! That's when we started to run as fast as we could and steered our way into Farranlea Hall (student's accommodation). Thank God the gate was open, when it is usually not. We ran up one flight of stairs and stayed there panting. One of us almost tripped TWICE! =P
So we stayed there for quite some time trying to get hold of some guy friends who are willing to save our day. David, our hero! He walked us home and we're safe and sound at home now.
The moral of the story is: DON'T COME HOME LATE, GIRLS!!!!

These pictures have nothing to do with the story.. Hmm, well.. Hopefully the calories were burnt when we ran.. ha ha ha

Comfort food... yum2~!!

Glad I watched it..

Champions League last night was excellent~!

I am not a football fan, to be honest. But I’m glad I sat through the game with the girls, even when I was supposed to be studying for orals… pffttt…

Anyway, it was hard to resist the good-looking players and the girls enthusiasm, so I was influenced.. =P

These are some pictures from our Winter Holidays 2007 in, where else, BARCELONA~! =D

The Liverpool fan & the Chelsea fan, but when it comes to MU, we will go for the other team… he he he


Btw, I just came back from CP4003  oral, it wasn’t that bad. But from my previous experience of oral, I think it’s quite hard to obtain those few marks to climb up to honours. Pass pun dah Alhamdulillah... Well, we see how it goes. Let’s focus for tomorrow’s oral!!!


Ganbatte ne, mina-san!

This is a video of our friends, Lujain & Cathal dancing waltz outside the exam hall. =D

Medical school..

Congratulations to my dear friends in final med, especially Kasus~! You guys have made it through 5/6 years of sweat, blood and tears to achieve what you guys have now. It feels as if it was only yesterday we just arrived together in this foreign land.

As for the rest of us, who are still struggling, we could only hope and pray (and of course, shed some more sweat, blood and tears) to finish off what we’ve started..

Medical school is tough, yes.. but what isn’t? Hey, life isn’t gonna get any easier.. Work, family, career, saving lives etc.. just to name a few..

So, to all doctors out there, especially my fellow brothers and sisters of UCC Medicine 2009, you are my idols and I am in awe to see all of you succeeded in going through a tough phase in our lives, called medical school..

A motivational entry..

‘The Victor’ - by C W Longenecker's -

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will.
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You ever can win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can

4th Year, 7th and final rotation = Paeds

Today is the last day of my last rotation for 4th med, which is Paediatrics. I thought I was going to enjoy this rotation as I love kids, but nope.. I don't really like it. It would be down the list of my specialization preference (refer post on the 4th of April).
Partly because I can't stand looking at sick children, though one of the consultant told me that that's the reason why she wanted to become a Paediatrician.
And partly because of the end of rotation exam today.. pfffttt.. Do u wanna know the questions? Here goes:

1. the survival rate of respiratory arrest
2. what is Ortolani test
3. the symptoms of biliary atresia
4. what is stadiometer
5. formula of 9 month old formula fed baby
6. at what age does a child quadruple their birthweight
7. where is the apex beat of a 4 year old
8. the proportion of death worldwide of resp disease
9. 4 developmental warning signs in the first 2 years of life
10. what is compensated resp failure

Long answer question:
Outline your understanding of disability in children and the management.

Happy with a tinge of disappointment..

Just watched the ever-awaited X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

I love the X-Men! It kinda revived my childhood, growing up reading the comics, watching the animations and playing video games.. (advantages of having 4 elder brothers).
Overall, I would rate it 9/10. Watching the movie get me all excited with the appearance of familiar characters.
One thing that really disappoint me (thus the -1 point to perfection) was that Taylor Kitsch does not do justice to Gambit. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating because I prefer Gambit when he has shorter hair. *wink*
So far, X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) is the best! 100/10!!!
Anyhoo, I can't wait to see the blooming of the relationship between Gambit and Rogue (Anna Paquin is the best!)

The greatest pair in comic history~! =D

p/s: Hugh Jackman is sexxaaayyy! =P
