Bandaging My Own Knee

I had to learn how to bandage my own knee yesterday. I can't rely on JiHo all the time right... Well the first time, after the fall, Ji Ho (4th year friend) was the one who bandage it for me. And with the help of a heat patch, the pain was bearable yesterday and the swelling went down too. Heat and bandages managed the pain very well.

So yesterday I decided to learn how to do it on my own. This is a topic that I'll learn only later on in General Surgery class.

And as for today, I can walk comfortably with a bandage. Only squatting is still painful. But I guess it takes time to heal.

Thanks Ji Ho for all your help!! ^_^

There are 2 types of knee bandages : converging and diverging
This one is converging if I'm not mistaken..hahaha...

Knee Oh Knee

I slipped and fell in the bathroom!!!! The floor was wet and slippery. And I fell knee first.

Imagine this. I was standing on a 'platform-like-tub' about one foot in height, and I fell to the floor from that height with my left knee first to land. I was actually getting down from the tub, right foot first. But I slipped and I landed on my left knee. Luckily my reflex was working well and I managed to break my fall with my hands before my face hits the floor. If I had not break my fall, I think I would be having stitches by now. Or at least have a bleeding nose.

*sigh* Now my knee hurts like hell. And I'm limping on one leg. I did put ice right after the fall, so the swelling isn't so bad. But the pain is still like...... OUCH!!!! That expression is enough to describe the pain right now. It even hurts to bend my knee!!! I hope by tomorrow it will be much better. How am I supposed to walk to class tomorrow??? *sigh* I can't skip medic info classes, I don't want to do replacement classes.

I Let You Go

Why did I let you leave?
Only staring at your back
As you walked away with your head down
Your figure became vague
Less vivid
I let you walk away
I let you go

Here I am
By the window sill
With my heart resembling the rainy day
Missing your smile
Your laugh
Your voice
Even your silliness
Boy, I'm missing you

I kept listening to that song
The beautiful song you sang to me?
But sorrow was all I felt
With every tear shed
I miss you even more

I know
I did let you go
But please come back
Just come back

Here's a link to My Photobucket
Will be uploading more soon. Please do visit, especially if you're a Big Bang and 2PM fan. I got loads of Big Bang, GD, 2PM, Jaebeom collage to share with everyone ^_^

God's Amazing Pharmacy

God had left us great clues as to what food help which part of our body.
God's Pharmacy is truly amazing...

Nikmat yg Allah kurniakan kepada manusia tiada bandingannya. So let's always be grateful for all that God has given us. This is a reminder for everyone, and most important, a reminder to myself.

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All o f the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries

Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

Totally exhausted.... weekends is here

YEY!!! The weekends is here again. What an exhausting week it was. After pathology class today I went to MediaMart with Capiel and Syafiq for a while, only after lunch I came home. And I slept for 4 hours. hahahhahah... extended afternoon nap. Now I need to go make myself some simple dinner, since I just woke up, and my tummy is grumbling.

Playing With Picasa

I'm not in the mood to study just yet. Had microbio test yesterday. Also lost something VERY VERY precious to me, something I can never live without. And today I had a pharmacology test. In the midst of being so depressed and frustrated, I'm just not in the mood to study.

I'm now playing around with Picasa while listening to some music, just to brighten up the mood. Here are some of my newest collection.

Yeah, I know, they are small scaled. Click on the picture silly. It'll open a link to a much larger sized picture.

Bad Day

I used to love this song long long ago. Today reminds me of this song =(

I Had A Bad Day

Raya ends here *sob sob*

As much as I wanna enjoy Raya celebration, I just can't afford to do that. Yup. Raya was on Sunday, and it ends on that day itself. It's just so unfortunate that we have Microbiology and Pharmacology test this week *gasp*. What the hell am I gonna do??!!!

Anyway, today I saw my first operation. It was interesting. But, operations in a free hospital where I had my Internal Disease classes is SO scary. The facilities, OTs, apparatus are pretty 'prehistoric' hahaha... Seriously, those who don't study in Russia may think that I'm exaggerating, but yeah, it is true. What do you expect, it's a free hospital. The surgeons, doctors, nurses, and staff that work there must be angels because their pay is VERY low. Plus my teacher is cute... hehehe...Sara has a crush on him!! hahaha...

Oh and about the operation today....well honestly, I really don't know what operation it was. We had to leave in the middle of the operation because we had a lecture to attend. So we couldn't possibly ask our teacher to explain the surgery while he was attending on the wide opened abdominal cavity, can we? I'll make sure to ask him on the next lesson. But the funny thing is that, I didn't feel anything. I thought I would faint or feel nausea or something. But I didn't feel anything.

The Best Aidilfitri

This is the best Raya so far yet experienced here in this far-away land of Russia. Loved every single moment of it (except for the Thar incident).

We left the apartment around 10am, and when we reached the embassy everyone who went for the morning Aidilfitri prayers and some morning tea was about to leave. It was fine because we were only aiming for the afternoon feast. hihihi.... So met a few people, took pictures here and there... and we all decided to go to Red Square & Kremlin to take pictures. Since this might be our last Raya here in Moscow, I guess we better go and take as much photos in our Raya attire at the so-ever-popular Red Square.

Get ready for some eye candies peeps. A lot of my friends are still single... Mari-mari HAHAHA

Embassy 11AM

I can't wait for them to get married..haha

I know.. wrong place to take a picture, embassy was under renovation.. but let's not focus there alright. With pretty Hanis, the background doesn't matter..

Kremlin & Red Square

It looked like it was gonna rain heavily today, but thank God, there was only light drizzle for a while. This is the first time going to Kremlin and Red Square wearing baju kurung and baju melayu for a lot of us, so it was quite a shock because we somehow became the centre of attraction (especially to those Russian Thar visitors *sigh*). Russians Thar are the russians that lives in the eastern parts of Russia... well, the scary thing is that, they wanted to take pictures with us, especially the girls.... urghhh... it was so annoying. At first it was fine, but when they kept asking for more again and again, we became annoyed... Gosh, what a scary experience.

And there we all went and brace the cold and wind just to look nice. hahahha... it was a bit windy, so yeah, therefore a bit cold.

Blooming love... hahahha

Embassy 3PM

The weather was good in the afternoon... surprisingly. It didn't rain like how it was predicted to by many weather forecast. Thank God~ Because it would be SO cold if it rains, and the feast wouldn't be held in the garden. It wasn't hot either... It was rather cool...

~I'm yet to transfer pictures from other cameras... more to come soon!!~
