Each Other

At times like this, we can't afford to be selfish. We only have each other to rely on, no one else. May this crisis brings us closer; be more caring towards the people around us, and appreciate our loved ones.

Rollin' Rollin'

Many of us didn't dare to go to class today. When we heard about the stories from first years who managed to go to classes in Ismailovskaya yesterday, we got scared. According to first years, the minute they stepped into the metro on their way home, everybody else got out. And the few who remained in the train stood very far away, shivering in fear. And they too got out on the next station.
Also there were 2 Muslim ladies (not Malaysians) wearing head scarf who got beaten up badly by several men in the metro yesterday, long after the metros started working again.
And an Uzbekistan man got punched in the face by some civilian.

Muslims in Moscow is now suffering the aftermath of yesterday's tragic incident.



Yeah... My class was canceled today since many of us live far away from Frunzenskaya.
So............
Fara made Cinnamon Rolls!! And I helped...

Before rolling up the thing.



Make P.E.A.C.E

Hot from the oven.... Yummy!!
Not enough of sugar glaze tho....

This 2nd batch looks nice. The first batch was burnt. HAHAHA.. I should have taken pictures of the burnt ones coz' it looked like a spiral dung. HAHA!!


May Allah give us all strength and will to keep going on,
no matter what happens.

Moscow Chaos

Just when I thought it was going to be a normal busy Monday, a chaotic situation hits Moscow. And just like the other Muscovites rushing to their classes or work places, I was rushing to class. I was already a bit late. But when I reached Baravidskaya, the metro station which everybody frequents since it is a changing line, the metro was closed. And many other metro users are piling up by the stairs leading to the other line (red line). Lucky me, I met fellow classmates there. I would be in a huge panic if I was alone.

Not knowing what had actually happened, the only thing in our minds was to find another way to get to class. The guards suggested that everybody uses Park Kultury metro to get to our destinations or to exit the metro system. But when I reached Serpuhovskaya(Brownline), it was a chaos as well. I was already panicking when I called my friends to inform that I might be late. And that was when I learned that there was a bombing in Lubianka's metro, just 2 metro stations away from where I was before. And when the guards suggested that we go to Park Kultury, nobody knew that there was going to be a 2nd bombing in Park Kultury station.

When my friends and I reached Park Kultury, we were ushered to the exit, where there were bomb squads, police and ambulances and fire-engines going around. Everybody that exited the metro was checked by the police using the batons that made sounds (I don't know what it's called, but you get what I mean...). We met other Malaysians outside the metro. And that was when we were told that there was a 2nd bombing just 30minutes ago in that metro station!! Boy, I was freaked out.

My friends and I went to walk down the street away from the scene. It's best to get as far as possible from places where an attack had happened. And also we were trying to think of the safest way to get home or to get to our university's main building or anywhere safe. The street was congested, no cars were allowed to pass..... we had no where to go. Tried calling other friends, hoping that they are safe, as well as to ask around for a way back home. But unfortunately, the network was very limited. Only when we were far enough from the scene, our cell phones worked.

So we went into a cafe and discussed there. Of course I had to buy something in order for us to sit there. And after finishing my breakfast set, the street had cleared up, there were less congestions. So we started finding our way out of the situation. And we managed to stop a cab. Thank Allah for saving us. The driver is a Muslim from Uzbekistan who drove us home safely with just minimal charges.

This is one scary experience. Alhamdullillah, God did not put us in a situation which could be worse than this.

Chaos in Park Kultury Metro Station.
All metro stations was closed down right after the 2nd explosion.



From what was reported, looks like it could be the works of Muslim terrorist again, like the ones happened on the train from Moscow to St.Petersburg. Oh Lord.... I just don't understand. They are fighting for their rights by killing innocent civilians?

Let's give back to mother earth



It's Earth Hour today.
Let's all join this cause to save our dear earth, the world we live in.
Let's instill that little bit of awareness in our selfish minds.
Let's turn off the lights.
Let's switch off the electrical appliances.
Let's be in the dark for just ONE HOUR.

Although there might not be much that could be save in one hour of darkness, but it's the idea of exercising the awareness of saving mother earth from ourselves.
The key is to having the awareness that we CAN do something to stop the damaged that has been done by humans.

We have taken so much from this planet.
It's time to give back a little something.

The lost passion

I was once a passionate reader. Reading was my favorite pass time when I was in school. And I enjoyed reading all kinds of books. Let it be romance or triller, chick flick or horror, historical or sci-fiction... I loved them all. But the amount of fiction materials I read started to decrease when I entered college. And for some reason, I became even lazier to read once I entered meds school. To say that I absolutely have no time to spare is a lie. Because I do have free time in which I spent doing useless things hahaha... And my English skills and grammar isn't improving, if it is not worse.

So last week I reopened a book, Ken Follett's Dangerous Fortune, which I had left unfinished for almost a year. I only read a few chapters and I lost interest in it. Not because the book wasn't interesting, but because I became lazy. I remembered reading only one Ken Follett's novel when I was in first year, and that was it. After almost 2 years, I managed to finish another. Boy was I that lazy??

I guess now I finally found back my lost passion. I'm about to start a new book. Wish me luck in finishing it....

Eat Eat EAT!!

Makan2 invitation

All Kahov's ladies are invited to attend this buka puasa ramai2. What special sunnah fasting is today for?? hmmm let's see..... Or is it just the normal Thursday's sunnah? hhmmmm...
OK I don't know. I'm not really the alim kind. hahaha... And besides I fall in the group who can't fast, due to certain female's 'circumstances hehehe....

Despite the organizers telling me not to prepare anything and just bring my empty tummy, I just don't have the heart to go empty handed. So I brought a side-dish and dessert.


I made 2 large containers of orange flavored jelly with pineapple cubes. I'm glad they liked it.


And a simple side dish to add up to the the main menu. Credits to Iman who made the chili sauce.

I've been craving for hard boiled eggs since yesterday. And I ate a LOT today, including those I secretly stuffed in my mouth while I was pealing the egg shell. HAHAHA!!! I bet my cholesterol level is spiking by now.
I better start an oat diet tomorrow.... Hoping that none of the cholesterol managed to deposit on my vessel walls before I can encounter them with oats hahaha!!

Shock-ing

YS : I'm not dreaming right? Pinch me. Pinch Me.
HS : smiley emoticons It's only one point!!
GK : If this is a dream, then I don't wanna wake up *buries face in hands*
Kan : Your faces are funny.. daebak!! keke... but congrats!

Yes. I'm shocked too.

My family doesn't want to talk to me

HAHAHA.. I sound pathetic.
But I have not talk to my mom for 2 weeks. She hasn't come online for the past weeks.
And I only see my bro active in facebook. And yet, he didn't say hi or update me with news from home. I bet he uses the internet just for games.



What does a girl have to do to get her family to come online and chat more often huh??
heh~
I guess everyone at home are just getting so busy.....

Sekolah Hebat? Autonomy?

Hell Yeah!!!

Sekolah Seri Puteri is on the front page of Berita Harian along with other 19 schools!
Way to go juniors!
I'm proud to say that I came from a prestigious school like Seri Puteri.
How I wish Seri Bintang Utara is on that page as well. Seri Bintang's primary school is.

So what kind of autonomy could the ministry of education will be giving to these schools? Hmmm I wonder...


Note : This is the news paper on 26th Jan.

Baking? err.. no thanks....

Baking attempt - A disastrous experience

I can say that I'm rather good in cooking. I can cook quite a number of dishes, ranging from Malay to Chinese to Indian to Western food. Even some Korean dishes I had tried before was a very successful attempt.
But I never tried baking before. Yeah, I've made cookie-based cheese cake a couple of times, but that can hardly be called baking.


It's mud!
No! It's dung!
No! It's dirty sponge!
No!
It's Amy's burnt-choc-cake with the burnt top part being scrapped off, and with certain parts still uncooked

OMG this is so funny!! I don't know why I find it a funny experience. I'm even laughing while I type this line. HAHAHAHA!!!

A tiring day

Even as I was typing the title of this post entry, I was yawning.
*yawn* and there you go again....

It has been a long day. I had to go for a medical checkup today. Since we'll be doing hospital attachments in July, we students needed to be checked, in case we might be an asymptomatic carrier of certain disease hehehe... Well it's just a routine check, just to make sure that we are healthy to be dealing with patients later on.

Anyways, I had to be at the polyclinic early morning. And the our university's clinic is situated so far away from my hostel.
Also there will be other students, including the outpatients as well. So in order to avoid the congestion, we were advised to come earlier.

After my medical check up was done, I had to go to my Russian language class. It was fun, although I was tired and sleepy. My Russian teacher is super nice and cool. So I managed to stay awake through her class.

Came back at 6PM. I planned to take a nap after washing up and prayers, but then I thought about all the things I needed to do; complete pathology notes, study for pharmacology test, study for topography anatomy class...... *sigh* So I drank coffee and did my notes.

And now I'm trying to encounter pharmacology. I read 2 pages, and I yawned once every 2 minutes. I'm tired...........

Doing notes in the comforter. It's cold.
Oh God, I looked so messy.. haha

March 18, 2010

Freaked out. Scared. Uneasy. Restless.










I'm both freaked out and scared by now.
As the hours went by, I'm feeling more uneasy.
I tried to not think about it.
I tried reading a book.
But it did nothing to put my mind to rest.
Then I went and watch funny Korean shows.
Tried indulging myself with MVs.
But nothing seems to be working.
And now I'm more anxious than ever.
I bet tomorrow's metro ride wouldn't be better either.
I hate this feeling.

A Joke

You are a joke
I wonder if you're on coke

You do your thing
And you like to sing

Like being in the center of attraction
You search for others affection

You think you got the flow
But don't you know?
You made more foe

I'm having a hard time
It's funny when I rhyme
Now that I heard the clock's chime
It's STUDY time




p/s: i thought of a funny poem tonight. rhyming just isn't my thing, but this just for fun. so it doesn't really matter if my rhyming is odd

Mood swings

.... and a sucky-day

clinical symptoms : moody, tend to snap easily, don't care what other people think
cause : PMS & occasional crap from others
treatment : meditation/praying, relaxing therapy

Me : (listening to the voice recording of today's class while filling up the blank spaces in my note book)
Sarah : (took the recorder and checking it out)

Me : jangan usik! (snapped at Sarah)

Sarah : Amy is scary today hihihi....

Me : Sorry.. a bit moody today....


Symptoms subsided to some extent after praying.
Let's hope ice cream therapy can do the rest.

My personal relaxation therapy.

25 More Rules for Women, as dictated by Men : The women answered.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.
Shouldn’t you tell that to yourself? If you put it up, put it back down when you’re finish. You’re a big boy too.

2. Sometimes, we are not thinking about you. Live with it.
HAH! And you thought that we think about you all the time? We do have other things to think of. Let’s see…. our studies, our cats/dogs, our garden patches etc. Besides aren’t we well-known for having of a lot of things in our minds all at once? There is certainly a lot in our minds. And you’re just a tiny part of it.

3. Shopping is NOT a sport, and no, we are never going to think of it that way.
Shopping is a sport. It’s a marathon. Shopping involves walking into a store several times, walking from one end of the mall to the other end, trying on clothes, maybe fighting to grab goods when it’s on sale. All these burn a lot of calories. So yes. We can consider it as a sport.

4. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine .... Really.
Whenever we don’t look our best and look sloppy, guess who will get embarrass as well? YOU!

5. Crying is blackmail.
Yes. We know. And it works all the time

6. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work. Strong hints do not work. Obvious hints do not work. Just say it!
Well aren’t you too stupid not to notice any of the hints? It not rocket science.

7. We don't remember dates. Mark birthdays and anniversaries on a calendar. Remind us frequently beforehand.
If we really do try this, you’ll say we are annoying. Don’t you hate our constant reminders?
OK fine. It does not matter if you can't remember stuff like these as long as you make it up with GIFTS.

8. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.
Who taught you that? Yes is an affirmative response. No is the negative response.


9. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.
Deal. Then don’t come to us with your problems. We obviously can’t solve them. Because all we have is sympathy. Oh how kind and considerate beings we are.

10. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

11. Check your oil! Please.

12. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

13. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret chicks, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

14. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

15. Let us ogle. We are going to look anyway. It's genetic.
We do this as well. The difference is that we are wise enough not to do it in front of you and get caught. We do it behind your backs.

16. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done, not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

17. The relationship is never going to be like it was the first two months we were going out. Get over it.
Oh, shall we get over it with a break up then?

18. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is a vegetable. We have no idea what mauve is.
Peach is a color. When you combine pink and orange colors, you’ll get peach color. And if you must know, the first recorded use of peach as a color name in English was in 1588. Wait, did I read that part wrongly? Nope. It is stated 1588.


19. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.
Well this just shows your lack of hygiene.

20. We are not mind readers and we never will be. Our lack of mind-reading ability is not proof of how little we care about you.

21. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.
We just wanted to see if you're sensitive enough. Guess we put our hopes too high.



Note : This is just for fun. I do agree to some of the arguments. This only shows that male and female are made differently. If we are the same and we think alike, there is no point in being in a relationship with a different gender.
btw, some of the answers are girlfriends' ideas. And some are left un-answered. I'm just lazy to think of an answer. I gotta go study. Drop a comment if you have better answers just for the fun of it tongue smileys

Cardiologist's Funeral

A very prestigious cardiologist died and was given a very elaborate funeral by the hospital he worked for most of his life...

A huge heart covered in flowers stood behind the casket during the service as all the doctors from the hospital sat in awe. Following the eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled inside.The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in the beautiful heart forever.

At that point, one of the mourners just burst into laughter. When all eyes stared at him, he said, "I am so sorry, I was just thinking of my own funeral... I'm a gynecologist."

The vicar fainted.


HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
I laughed pretty hard upon receiving this forwarded email.

When is Ms. Spring coming??!

Dear Mr. Winter,

Will you please kindly stop snowing and make way for Ms. Spring. I was happy with the prospects that Spring is finally coming very soon when it had gotten warmer and the sun was shining brightly just a few days ago. I had high hopes that it'll be an early Spring this year. But today I had to throw all those hopes away when sprinkles of fresh snow came down from the ever so gloomy sky.




It snowed.
Snow got dirty.
It got warmer.
Snow starts to melt.
Now it snowed again???

Stay young and healthy with honey

It's delicious. It's healthy. It's good

I'm sure everybody wants to forever look young and be healthy. Let's try this drink of nature.
All you need to do is mix one tablespoon of honey with hot water. I usually squeeze a bit of lemon into my honey drink.

Honey lemon has been my daily drink for the past month. I fell sick recently, and my cough lasted almost 2 weeks. Although I was talking medicine, my cough wasn't coming to an end. So after having flu and coughing for a week, I tried the honey&lemon drink that my Russian teacher suggested quite sometime ago. And I got better after taking the drink 3 times a day. Well of course it was my body defense that was finally kicking in, but I'm sure the honey and lemon had help my body defense system to come to its senses that there were millions of microbes swimming freely in my blood that needed to be killed.

Anyways, after I got better, my told my mom what I tried. She said our family doctor also suggested the same drink when she couldn't take any antibiotics. And she told me to take honey daily. Honey was the one kept her looking young. She made honey as a sweetener in her milk and tea. And she has been doing so since she was young.
Here's the thing about my mom, she likes to brag to me about how people would always mistaken her to be in her early 40s, when she's already 50. HAHA.. well I do have to admit, my mother does look younger than her actual age.


a steaming cup of honey lemon drink makes me relax after a tiring day


Let's try this drink and make it a habit. But make sure you get the natural honey and not the one that had been mixed with sugar. Unlike natural honey, the honey that has been mixed with sugar will get frozen in the refrigeration. So make sure you buy the right ones OK



note : I don't know how far true about this little honey fact is, but according to many people, we are not advice to use a metal spoon when scooping honey or stirring our drink. There are certain chemical reactions that occurs when honey contacts with metal. I'm not very sure of this fact, but just to be safe, I use a plastic spoon to scoop my honey.

A change

hehehe... as you all can see, I changed my blog layout. yes.yes. it looks a bit boring. but I feel that I need to make it simple, less clutter.
And I did learned a lot about editing html. I learned how to change the menu links (the blue thingy below blog title) according to how and what links I want it to open when anyone clicks it. I've also learned how to make a clickable picture so it will link to different profiles on different networks (as how I did for 'contact me')

hehe.. alright.. that's enough for now. time for studies ^_^


Note : topography anatomy is making my head go bingeul bingeul

Congratulations Bro!!


SPM results came out yesterday. And when my mom and brother messaged informing me the good news, I was still in slumberland. hahaha.. I had an afternoon class, and I slept late the night before because I had to study for the class.

Anyways, big CONGRATULATION to Danial for his achievements.

I knew he would do excellent in his studies. And I even think he's better than me.
When he was chosen to go to Japan last year for an excursion trip, I envied him. At the age of 17, he was chosen for a big event all because he excelled his Japanese exams. I wish I could get that opportunity.

However so, like others, he couldn't escape from the norm. And like any other younger siblings in any family, he was pressured being the younger one. hehehe...

But hey bro, you've proved youself to ma&pa that you could do great, even if you were playing dota all day. HAHAHAHA...

Again,
CONGRATS!!!!

Go Ayam! Go Ayam! Go Go Go Ayam!!

Can Mr Ayam beat Mawi??

A friend invited me to join this fan page on facebook. Usually I'll just ignore page suggestions, coz I don't want to clutter my facebook with unnecessary things. But this one, I made an exception. hahaha...

By the way, if anyone happen to notice some non-understandable words in red, don't have to ask. That's just B2ST's Shock playing in the background. Since I use minilyrics, the lyrics of songs automatically pops out when a song is being played. Yes, it is romanized. It's for me to be able to sing them (not that I have a lovely voice. I think my roomie is getting sick of my bad singing..hahahaha) because I can't read hangul that fast, when it's a fast song like Shock.

hehehe... going crazy in love with B2ST now.

laziness

Dear blog,

I'm sorry for not posting anything much lately. It seems that I'm going through a phase of laziness to blog. Even now, I don't have anything much to say in this entry. My daily visits has gone down to half than my average visits. I hope I'll get thru this phase soon.


LOLLL... this is a completely useless post. But yeah, I'm just so lazy to blog these days. Blogging has been my favorite past time activity, after Korean stuff. But now, all I do is....
study>korean shows/music>korean lyrics sites>study>became too tired to blog
haha.. yes. I became one of the author for a korean lyrics/romanization site. This site cuts my leisure time in half. which means, less time to blog ^_^ but I love being the author of the website. So I guess now blogging falls after that.....

Wondrous facebook


Another long lost friend found. Well she found me first actually. But it doesn't matter.. We found each other! How cool is that. We lost contact when she changed school during our primary 4... or was it primary 5?? hmmm.... I'm not quite sure. It has been more then 10 years ago. Partly it was my fault for not trying to find her after I finished school. I guess both had became busy with each others lives.


When she dropped me an email telling me who she is, and asking if I still remembered her, nothing rings a bell. I was like... errr... Fadzilah? Who?? I did once had a best friend who changed to another school. I can't remember her name tho. But when she sent me a photo of her, I jumped in joy. It is truly my long lost best friend from primary school. Judging by her looks, she hadn't change very much. Then flashes of memories replayed in my mind. All the fun we had, all the mischiefs we made when we were kids.... ahhh... precious memories. I'm really glad she found me after all these years.

If I have superpowers

If I could have a superpower, I would like to have the ability to
teleport myself. Wouldn't it be great to be able to transport myself across space and distance with a snap of a finger. No, I don't even need to snap my finger, just think about the place that I need to go to, and *poof* I'm there.

*sigh* Let's get back to reality Ms Wee.

I was late for class today. Again... hahaha.. I forgot that it's the first day of the month and I had not topup my metro card. When I entered the metro door this morning, there were 2 very long queue at the ticket counter. But it didn't registered in my head that it could be the first day of the month, so I ignored the line. I was panicking because I was already late. When I touch my metro card at the sensor, it showed red. Silly me.

If only I have the power of teleportation, I wouldn't have to go into battle with fast walking Russians in metro stations or get squashed in between tall Russians in the metro or coming into class sweating and panting like mad or ....... OK I should stop watching sci-fi movies now
