Ophthalmology and humanity

I woke up early this morning as for today is the first day I enter the 4th year of medicine. The distance between my new lecture hall and my house is now a few steps nearer than before. Well, that makes a lot of change! We don't have to run from the main gate to the faculty. We don't have to climb to the 6th floor for lectures. And also, we don't have our Malaysian Room here. Oh, we are going to miss that room! To tell you the truth, I've missed ophthalmology classes several times because the lesson began on 3rd October 2009. Despite of being late for a fortnight, I tell myself to be positive and give my full concentration during the class.

What I like best the lecture today is the lecturer himself. He enters the classroom, greets the students with a smile on his face and brings us some candies! He distributes each one of us a candy before he starts his lecture and during two-minutes-breaks in between lectures. He treats us like small kids and that's very cute!

Hide and seek

It's been a while I haven't post something here. I'm still in Malaysia, by the way. Yeah, you know...enjoying my so-called-holiday...tasting hometown's cuisines...visiting teachers and relatives...having fun under the sun and not to forget the sea! We collect a lot of...'remis' some kind of animal that i don't know it's name in English. There are so much of theme by the seashore and you can simply collect them without having to dig the shore. They say that those 'remis' are having 'headache' and float because of the earthquake in Padang. Believe it or not, it's up to you! After all, Allahu a'lam.

But believe me, IT'S LOVELY! What else do you need than having your loved ones by you side? They make me feel all right. They make me feel wanted. It is just a bond that would never break, biiznillah. Spending about one month at home, with mama (Cik Yah sends you her regards!) and Mat Wey and Wanie and Leilin and Big never going to be enough. A moment with each of them is the moment I treasure. Thank you Allah, The Merciful.

We sing lively, we laugh out loud, we joke silly jokes and we get angry with each other. Funny and sweet! We even play hide and seek. A game that you used to play when you were in kindergarten. The game that we like so much and usually lasts for a few rounds. But with a condition, we have to play hide and seek at night, in the pitch dark. Very exciting and...well...challenging! Yeah, why not? The seeker has to look for the other members with the whole house lights off, except the kitchen...where no one will be a fool hiding in there.
