Final Med, 1st rotation = General Practice

For the past 4 weeks, I was attached to a practice in Cork.
Our daily activities include 2 hrs sit-in with a GP, 1 hr tutorial, a session for audit/reading time/evidence based medicine, a session with a nurse/physiotherapist/nursing home/pharmacist.
The practice and doctors are excellent and I enjoyed my 4 weeks there.
Ended the rotation with an exam on Friday.
GP rotation contributes to 7.5% of final marks for Medicine module. =)

Pre-Eid Part 1


I cook Nasi Dagang (my mum’s recipe) for iftar.


Last Tarawih prayer for this Ramadhan with the girls.


Pre-Eid housemates picture, as Kasus is already on her flight back home today. *sob sob*.


"Reading" time..

We were given designated "reading" time during our GP rotation which is supposedly our self-directed learning sessions.. (ie you're-supposed-to-be-studying-for-your-exam time)

But today, instead of reading GP and medical books, I was reading magazines in a hair salon.. =P

-new side-swept bangs for Eid!- =P

Vampire-related stuff

If u've read my post in January this year, you would have known my obsessions with vampire-related story books. (L.J. Smith, Anne Rice, Stephenie Meyer etc). And I love watching vampire-related movies/tv series as well (Anne Rice's, Twilight, Blade, True Blood..) No, not Buffy.. That was lame.. =P

What was getting me excited is the new TV series on CW, The Vampire Diaries. It is an adaptation from L.J. Smith's Vampire Diaries series.. Yeayhh!! Hope it turns out well though.. Because it could be lame now that all the vampire-related stories are a trend now.

Since we're on this topic, I might as well recommend HBO's original series, True Blood to all you vampire fans out there.. Just finished with 2nd season now. I love the story line and Anna Paquin is such an amazing actress (been her fan since she was in the Piano-1994. She won an Oscar for that one!)

I know I should cut down hours spent watching TV series now that I am in my final year, but some series are just too hard to resist! *wink*

My 'physio' session

Walked for more than 1/2 hour up the hill and arrived to a closed physio where I was supposed 2 sit-in for sessions. Ended up i had 2 walk 4 2 hrs straight to find my way home!! Thank God it was such a lovely day~!
