Michael Jackson... the Legend

I was actually driving back from my 1st night shift of the cycle when I heard on the radio about MJ. I thought the DJs were making such a sick joke about him, like they always do to others all the time. Then there were these wishes from the public about how much they loved him, would miss him, blablabla. And I sorta couldnt digest still, coz I was really tired & couldnt even pay attention on the road.

But then, more news clips & it kept on going. Then it hit me.. waaahhh betul ke MJ dah mati? I thot I heard them say that tak confirm lagi. I pun.. ok, tipu je kot. Ye betul la tu kot cardiac arrest & now coma. Kan ke mcm2 rumours before this kata dia sakit mcm2. Ok, ok, ada can lagi. (Haahahhaha.. mcm sorang tokoh kehidupan je dia tu aku nak be in disbelief ni).

I grew up listening to MJ, thanks to my parents esp abah. I remember masa kat asrama dulu, seciput je org yg suka MJ ni. Mesti org ejek punyalah kalau tau aku suka MJ. I remember watching the video clips that abah collected (masa tu video tape), the one that I most remember is of course the moonwalk.


Of course the other songs that I love: Beat It (also the version sang by arwah Sudirman & Noorkumalasari), Smooth Criminal, Dirty Diana, Thriller, Bad, Black or White, You Are Not Alone, Earth Song, The Way You Make Feel, dan lain2 they are all brilliant.

Macam2 kontroversi mamat ni. From the very start dia trim kening dia in mebbie 1984, to the start of his facial modifications since then. The links to different people of why he did that, to those women he got married to then to the boys rumours. Then all those plastic surgeries came out as a self-betrayal, financial matters, and so on. Masa aku kecik2 dulu, masa tgk dianyer vid clip, aku rasa cam dia ni sangat la kacak for a black guy. Suara pon ala2 romantic gitu. Aduhaaiii... tapi nak buat cam mana.. he's soooo into perfection that it actually ate him alive..


Ada la jugak sekelumit kesedihan bila aku baca menda2 tu. But, oh well.. being a doctor in a foreign country has taught me not to care too much (sadly enuf).

Dah lama nak belikan abah a collection of MJ DVD or CD. La ni baru ada kesempetan. Aku terus bergegas ke Chadstone coz mmm.. terfikir2 nanti mesti abis coz semua pon nak tribute to MJ. So aku pon sambar la the album History double CD of Book 1 & Book 2.

Tribute to MJ.. whatever the controversies are & no matter how ugly he destroyed his life til the end.. he is one of those people who have produced the best, the greatest music in my time, and MJ is in his own category.

One of my obsessions: hal2 kulit & kecantikan

Ni la kerja aku bila tak dpt tido. Selain dp try kemas2 rumah, try study & makan2, aku juga dok mengulangkaji menda2 best kat internet & majalah2 koleksi (own mags & yg curi kat spital). This time its pasal kulit & kecantikan.

Aku started pakai mekap ni pon agak lewat kalau nak banding dgn most of other teens kat M'sia & of course dgn kanak2 kat Aussie ni. Kalau ikut cronology nye:

- started with lipgloss/balm from a very young age coz was living in the U.K when I was 5. then continue on sampai la ni. sebab tu aku suka lip make up than eye colours. then slowly using lipcolours when i'm in my mid teen years. masa tu guna coloured lipbalm je. now share lip colours with mum, tapi mostly guna sendiri punya coz our fav colours & texture r very different. my evergreen lip care until now: Lip Ice from Mentholatum.

- started looking afta my skin mebbie when i was 9 or 10 sebab terpengaruh dgn iklan tv. walaupun aku membersar dgn adik-beradik/ cousins lelaki semuanye & non of my female cousins sibuk jaga kulit/ mekap bagai (seingat aku la) aku sangat conscious dgn how i look sejak kecik lagi. masa tu just curi2 guna moisturiser org dewasa, hazeline snow kot. hahahhaa. then started using facial wash sejak umur 12. masa tu ingat lagi, abah marah coz dia kata sayang kulit aku ni dah rosak kena bahan kimia. kinda think of it, aku setuju gak. tapi last2 masa umur 13, 14 dia belikan aku facial wash yg best & sgt sesuai dgn kulitku yg ngada2 masa tu. i still remember dia belikan aku 2 jenis facial wash hazeline snow: scrub & yg minty nyer. aku punye la suka. best sgt. pas tu masa kat asrama gatal2 guna sabun susu kambing beli dp member yg maknye jadi dealer. hahaha. best la jugak. mcm2 lagi aku try, ada biore, ada oil of ulan, ada johnson & johnson, ada mustika ratu, ntah apa2 lagi.

- then for years i've been using oil of ulan SPF all over my face & tangan skali. pernah try mcm2 sample, tapi ni yg paling bagus. then naik taraf guna neutrogina with SPF. masa tu my skin was super oily & ada byk jerawat. berkilat2. hmmm, bila fikir balik, mebbie sebab tu dulu muka aku kinda cerah even tho aku rajin bersukan masa skolah dulu, until la ni sejak terkena matahari Aussie. now dah itam sket walau tebal mana pon aku sapu SPF (ye la, SPF just sun protection bukan whitening product). oh ye, zaman tu ada gak aku try pemutih kulit amenda ntah yg femes dulu tu, mebbie now dah kena tarik kot.

- started using separate night lotion by age of 16 kot. tapi masa tu guna yg murah2 je like oil of ulan or simply baby lotion.

- started wearing compact powder/ coloured loose powder masa umur 18++ dah nak dekat grad IB. sebelum tu tepek bedak bayi je on top of moisturiser. masa tu ingat lagi one of the last lunches with homeroom kat IB tu, one of the guys noticed muka aku lain lepas abis kelas. lawa lagi kot. hahahaa. ingat lagi dia kata, konon2 random to all other girls jugak.. "haaa.. ni mesti balik tadi gi touch up bedak kan, lain je muka masing2". alahaaii...

- started wearing glasses masa umur 16. mebbie masa tu i needed them way before tapi tak perasan. padan la terkebil2 je biji mata aku slalu dlm kelas coz kabur2 je pandangan. masa tu takde la rasa cam nerd, even tho aku ni agak geek masa tu. started wearing contact lenses when I was 18++, defying my dad's wishes. kecoh satu kelas masa tu aku pakai contacts. cheh, tau la aku lagi lawa lepas pakai tu. dah tak nerd lagi. tambah plak baru blaja pakai compact powder. ahahhaha.. until now aku pakai contacts most of the time & pakai glasses bila dok rumah or malas nak pakai contacts, which is jarang2. and alhamdulillah la dlm 10 thn yg aku pakai contacts ni, 1x je aku kena conjunctivitis, itu pon masa first month pakai & pasal suspected kena. masa tu mata tak merah/ber'discharge tapi gatal2 je. siap gi jumpa doctor lagi, risau la katakan. then afta a few days pakai balik & tak pernah kena dah. alhamdulillah.
hmmmm.. one of my brothers just bought his first pair of contacts, again.. against mine & my dad's wishes. and dia jawab balik... "eleh, awak dulu pon start masa umur cam ni jugak kan". hmmm betul jugak tu. but dear, girls body matures earlier than guys, hence my eyes dah stable power dia earlier than urs masa umur aku cam u now. ur power tak brapa stable lagi so nanti takut bazir contacts like each time u tukar ur glasses.. haaaiii.. nak buat cam mana.

- started wearing foundation when i was here in Aussie. masa tu umur 19++. tak ingat brand apa, or when exactly. mebbie masa tu guna Maybelline kot. now slowly naik taraf ikut suka.

- started wearing eyecolour & mascara masa umur 22,23 kot. simply coz aku pakai contacts slama ni. and still learning the techniques & colour suitability. My best achievements ialah masa gi kenduri kawin my best fren F & masa tunang aku sendiri mekap.

- started using blusher masa umur 25 thn. tu pon pasal temankan Dr. D gi the Body Shop & beauty assistant tu yg pakaikan. masa tu ingat lagi, aku stress coz super conscious about my face lepas dia bubuh tu. tak nak jadi cam clown.

- perfume, sejak zaman remaja lagi until now. mula2 beli guna duit sendiri kumpul2 zaman sekolah. then mak belikan bila dia gi overseas, then bf (now hubby) belikan, now beli sendiri + hubby kasi. plus aku yg rajin belikan my family + hubby perfumes. hubby's all time favourite is Carolina Hererra 212 Men & mum's all time favourite is Lancome Miracle. Mine special ones alwiz: Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto collection, Missoni Acqua, Clinique Simply.
My other perfumes now (ada yg dah abis): Davidoff Cool Water, Davidoff Cool Water Game, Davidoff Echo, Elizabeth Arden Green Tea, Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean Summer, JLo Live Lux, Versace Red Jeans, Avon Pur Blanca, Anna Sui Sui Dreams (first perfume from hubby, then bf) & yg terbaru gatal2 beli Versace Versence.
Yg pernah ada from samples or kasi org dah: JPG Madame (to TTM), Hypnose' (to Antonia), Dior Addict & this particular green bottled perfume very strong my mum bought (to K.Yah wit mum's blessing), Clinique Elixir & EA Mediterranean (to Anisha), JPG Red Jeans & CH Incanto Heaven (to best buddy M), Dior Addict 2 & Carolina Hererra 212 Women samples (still here & loving it) and some other samples that I still keep nicely in display.
At the moment, hubby & I tgh nak try Clinique Happy both Men's & Women's. Salute to Dr. D coz dia yg try yg ni dulu.
Waaahhh.. byk betul minyak wangi yg aku minat. Tapi semuanye lebih kurang sama je bau dia. Hahaha.

- body lotion dah guna sejak kecik sampai la ni. dulu guna baby lotion Johnson & Johnson or Baby Magic from the U.S., now aku sgt kemaruk kat the Skin Food products sejak my best fren F gave me the set as a wedding gift. Thanks heaps F. Love u. My favourite until la ni ialah Fresh Lime Body Cream (left pic). This hilangkan my calluses, parut, kulit kering & eczema. So totally in love with it. Body moisturiser lain takde yg kasi this kind of effect, except mebbie cream gamat tu tapi susah nak dpt. Lagi satu ialah Jojoba Heel Care Butter (right pic) yg aku bantai je memana if cuaca sangat2 kering. My hubby & my family love these 2 products as well. Malangnye menda ni takde kat Aussie. Ni yg terasa nak bukak franchise kat sini jap lagi ni.

- masalah jerawat sejak zaman remaja dulu. dulu sibuk2 la pakai oxy. ada la baik sket. tapi tak makan saman jugak kadang2 jerawat aku tu. then just before nak fly ke sini masa medical check up dulu tu, doc kasi antibiotics & retinol solution. pas tu continue kat sini dgn pelbagai lagi steps sampai naik bosan. ada gak try pencuci muka gamat which is very very good, tapi susah nak dpt masa tu. last2 aku resort to the ultimate la kan. no need to say anymore. now aku sangat sayang pada kulit mukaku. =D

Oh ye. Aku teringat masa ikut my x-housemate gi Perth & i forgot to bring my facial wash.
Aku pakai dia punya yg ada beeswax. Hancus muka aku ada allergic reaction. Tak tau pon masa tu aku allergic to beeswax ni. Sedih sangat2 sebab sakit & muka jadi huduh. Ada member uni kata bibir aku masa tu irregular border, erythematous, bleeding, etc. Mcm2 products aku try nak kasi reda reaction tu. Last2 resort to Clinique. Baik terus, but it took a long time to recover. Agak2 bertahun2 jugak la coz each winter sejak reaction tu, muka aku mengganas & jadi elok sgt time summer or in M'sia. Now dah okay & I love to try new products all the time, tapi dgn berhati2 la. Now aku dok menerai this Skin Food sample, but still stay on my Clinique toner.

Hmmm, aku still new in the eye make ups & blusher areas, simply coz:
- I wear contact lenses, so slalu malas pakai coz eye colours make my eyes red/ gatal/ tak selesa when I have my contacts on. Sejak beberapa thn kebelakangan ni je yg gatal2 nak pakai.
- Blusher baru start pakai beberapa thn dulu coz I noticed that my face pucat coz terlalu putih in winter & terlalu dull in summer. I used to make this mistake by buying a slightly darker foundation tak nak kasi pucat. But now dah legam sket sejak rajin sunbathing in summer especially this yr's summer.


There u go. My skin care/ beauty diary entry. ahahhahahaha.. Still need help dlm hal2 mekap mata ni coz masih baru. Pernah suatu masa dulu aku gi nyopping kat Watson, KL dgn best fren M to feed my obsession, dia kata.. "Aaaiii... A, tak payah jadi doctor la, jadi je make up artist.". Hahahahhaha.. my pleasure my dearie fren, my pleasure. Amik degree ni pon sekadar suka2 je. Memang aku minat abis kat hal2 kulit/ mekap ni ;)

Winter's Rojak

Alhamdulillah my boss gave his green light for a referee for next year's job application. And that completes the requirement of 3 referees for each job application. I really hope that they would give me a good reference. So now I'm working on my cover letter & resume. Looking at the past year's one, I'm pretty much confident that it needs a lot of mending. Huhuhuhu... malu je bila baca balik. Kinda lame & funny actually. Kena tunjuk kat senior2 ni before I click the 'send' button nanti.

Haii... ni la kerja doctors kat sini, every single year kena dok apply jobs. And now at this stage of my career I should be applying for any training that interests me. But aku ni ish.. I dont think I am very sure of what I want to do for the rest of my life. I know the specialties that I dont want to do. But, who knows I might change my mind later on. And I know that at the moment I'm very interested in Emergency Medicine. People say I'm weird & ED's very tough that u work like a dog each time u go to work. Well, I say, in any training pun u'll work more than like a dog, probably GP tak brapa busy. But semua training pon akan jadi gila gak... dah namanye docs... ur life is no longer yours pretty much. Radiology, pathology, pain medicine, ophthalmology, dermatology... all memang hard work once u r in the training programme. Mebbie hidup akan lebih selesa bila dah jadi consultant... which is yeaaaarrrs from the year we start training. Tua dah masa tu. Hmmm... kinda think of it, I'm not in a hurry to get anything.

Then, kabar baru from hubby when he went to Bedoe mosque the other day. The usage is now limited due to some 'onar' oleh brothers jugak. Monash City Council is not happy about it. So now diorang kena gi solat Jumaat kat Monash Sports Rec/ Nottingham Town Hall. I hope the plan to build a mosque in this area, seperti yg diwar-warkan dulu dpt diteruskan despite this. Hmmm...

Me still with my ulangkaji pelajaran. At the moment trying to concentrate on paeds resuscitation & neonatology. Leceh betul la kena gi buat assessment dgn one of the midwives. Adoh, tau-tau je la diorang tu. Rigid gila.

Then afta this gua kerja malam for another week. Hopefully it goes smoothly coz pas tu gua balik M'sia for a week. Talking about that, I'm recovering from this URTI quite quickly. Alhamdulillah. So hopefully akan okay time dlm plane nanti. Dan harap2 takde la some jokers yg sakit2 dlm tu bawak kuman2 H1N1 ni & thus impending my niat nak nyopping kat KL. Hmmm.. swine flu... patut ke takut, that now 1 dah mati kat Adelaide (an aborigine) & 1 kat Victoria ni (org muda yg byk comorbidities) & 1 lagi today (org tua yg ada malignant cancer, hampir2 palliative). Mostly org2 kat spital tu dah tak heran langsung, & just treating it like any other milions of flu strains in the world. Well, insyaAllah selamat. Banyak lagi org mati & lagi cepat mati with typhoid, mycobacterium or strep pneumoniae, acute myocardial infarction, motor-vehicle accident, etc.

Anyways, insyaAllah lepas hal2 jobs ni, aku & hubby akan sambung hal2 kehidupan yg ala-ala tergendala sementara waktu ni; e.g. rumah, kerja rumah, bills, etc.

Doa-doakanlah saya dpt go thru the interviews & dpt kerja best next year. InsyaAllah, amiiin. Thanks millions.

Corelle splurge.. YESSS!!

Semalam gi DFO Cheltenham dgn TTM. Saje melayan cravings nak nyopping. Takde la shopping baju/accessories menda pun, just a pair of work pants coz yg beli awal thn dulu tu dah terlebih longgar. So bungkus la yg besar2 tu utk pakai time preggie nanti.... ntah bila la nak membuyut tu (seperti kata TTM). hehehehe.. Aku akan sambung nyopping bila balik M'sia nanti. Harap2 tak kena kuarantin kat rumah coz of some dummies sakit dlm plane nanti.

Anyways, splurged on Corelle sets. Laki ku kata harap takde rupa cam pinggan free colgate yg cam kat Carrefour/ Giant slalu dpt tu. Tapi bila balik & dia buka bungkusan kertas Corelle tu.... hmmmm... dia tidak berkata apa2. Chis!! Dah la mahal gua beli sumer tu. I love the designs. As much as I like the modern designs, I am someone who gets bored very easily, so I believe that if I stick to an evergreen design I would love it to bits.

Ni je yg aku beli kat sana. Ada lagi yg tak beli coz takde stock or takde offer. Takpe, takpe, lain kali borong lagi, kan. Set cawan/ gelas corelle aku blom berkenan lagi. I will continue to serve guests dgn our authentic cawan/ mugs collections e.g. from Max Brenner, Warner Brothers, The Simpsons, etc buat masa ini, until aku jumpa set2 yg best.
Lunch plate & Dinner plate
Big serving bowl & piring kecik
Mangkuk leper kecik & piring dessert
Small rice bowl & big rice bowl
This is my mum's corelle design. To me this is still the best design ever from corelle. Harga pun amboi, amboi... tercekik jugak gua dengar. Bila makan dlm pinggan/ mangkuk design ni pun semuanyeee rasa sedap gila. Hahahahha.
Aku masak mee hoon sup, mcm biasa la time malas-malasan tu. Tapi sedap je, plus tgh ada upper respi track infection, so better makan sup sup je. And hubby finally sed... "wow, its not tooo bad after all... makes food taste lots better"... FINALLY!!

Happy Fathers' Day

Happy Fathers' Day to my beloved dad


40 Things I Learn From My Father

1. Never waste time. This second can never be replaced by the next second, and it never stops for you.
2. Work hard to get what you want. No pain, no gain. You get what you are willing to work for... if you actually work for it.
3. Respect your roots.
4. Respect & treat others the way you want to be respected & treated.
5. Be grateful of what you have & appreciate your life.
6. Never waste water.
7.
Never curse the other person if they are in the wrong. They wouldnt be there if they were not them. The worst thing that Allah can punish someone is to not open their heart. On the other hand, pray for their wellness, for a better world & a better you. You will breathe blissfully.
8. Be generous to others, Allah swt will always give you more.
9. Life is all about survival of the fittest, given that you work hard to survive.
10. Its okay if you are tired & exhausted. Unwind... but dont lose yourself.
11. Never waste money.
12. Anything happens for a reason, because of a reason. You just hafta look on the bright side of it.
13. First few steps are alwiz the hardest. Dont give up. Once you've passed that barrier, everything will fall in place & flow okay, if not nicely. It is like the first day of a newborn, first month neonate, first year infancy...
14. Always look things on all sides before you make any informed decision.
15. Always look on all sides of the story when a conflict arises. You never know why it happens. Always give the benefit of the doubt if you cant see it thru all of the views.
16. Never waste anything.
17. Recycle or reuse all you can.
18. Always consider your family and those closest to you first. InsyaAllah, they will be there for you when you need them.
19. Children are mostly innocent in their needs & wants.
20. Anticipate alwiz & alwiz have plans b, c, d, so on. Be prepared, but also be flexible.
21. Always aim for the highest logical goal you can achieve, & work hard for it. If you cant fulfill it, there is always the second best.
22. Love yourself first if you love others. This is so that you could continue to love & be with them.
23. Love the earth, it will alwiz give back to you in the most miraculous way.
24.
Never curse the other person. You never know if they are going to be the only one who're able to help you out when no one is.
25. Grab all the opportunities you can get, as you never know when they are coming to you again.
26.
Be efficient in your resources. Be effective in what you do.
27. If you are stuck on something, step back & learn something from it. Then move forward with courage & prayers.
28. Never curse the other person. You never know if the curse will come back to you... in a much worse situation.
29. Allah swt alwiz has something written for you. Be patient, play hard, play it nicely. You will go thru life smoothly, InsyaAllah.
30.
Always smell the fresh air & enjoy the sun & the sound of the birds chirping.
31. Grudges kill & will bring you down. Forgive & move on. Learn something from it though...
32. Be logical. Be rational.
33. Practice makes perfect.
34. Be observant.
35. At the end of the day, its your life & you alone. So equip yourself & charge.
36. Enjoy what you are doing & do it good. If you are clean, no one can blame you.
37. Dont let others rule your life.
38. Respect food & books.
39. Everything you learn from life is never wasteful regardless how much time you've spent on learning them.
40. Family comes first. Love your family for who they are.. they are always there for you... even if you think you dont need them anymore.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am trying to learn & actually practise what I learn from Abah all thru out my life. I cherish this. Thank Allah swt for giving me my father & my father me. Love you lots. May Allah swt memberkati hidupmu & murah rezeki alwiz. Take care.

41 Secrets Your Doctor Would Never Share... most of it are true :)

http://www.rd.com/living-healthy/41-secrets-for-your-next-doctor-visit/article75920.html

Interesting reading from Readers Digest, US, website. Here I hightlight the bits that interest me most =)

We're Impatient

I am utterly tired of being your mother. Every time I see you, I have to say the obligatory "You need to lose some weight." But you swear you "don't eat anything" or "the weight just doesn't come off," and the subject is dropped. Then you come in here complaining about your knees hurting, your back is killing you, your feet ache, and you can't breathe when you walk up half a flight of stairs. So I'm supposed to hold your hand and talk you into backing away from that box of Twinkies. Boy, do I get tired of repeating the stuff most patients just don't listen to. --Cardiologist, Brooklyn, New York
~I hafta agree with this somehow. Everyone has been a patient & we all know we are not alwiz compliant to any advice.

• I was told in school to put a patient in a gown when he isn't listening or cooperating. It casts him in a position of subservience. --Chiropractor, Atlanta
~This somehow doesnt apply to most Aussie patients, they do wat they want despite wat we advise them & they kno it.

• Thank you for bringing in a sample of your (stool, urine, etc.) from home. I'll put it in my personal collection of things that really gross me out. --Douglas Farrago, MD, editor, Placebo Journal
~This probably applies to the nurses/ path people than us docs, except probably LMO a.k.a. GP & of course the pathologists.

• One of the things that bug me is people who leave their cell phones on. I'm running on a very tight schedule, and I want to spend as much time with patients as I possibly can. Use that time to get the information and the process you need. Please don't answer the cell. --James Dillard, MD, pain specialist, New York City
~I hafta agree on this sometimes because I make the effort to reject/ ignore foncalls when I'm seeing patients, unless if the call is life-threateningly crucial.

I wish patients would take more responsibility for their own health and stop relying on me to bail them out of their own problems. --ER physician, Colorado Springs, Colorado
~ I soooo totally agree with this. Enuf with us being taxed extra by gov, now we are taxed again for cleaning up ur own mess.

• So let me get this straight: You want a referral to three specialists, an MRI, the medication you saw on TV, and an extra hour for this visit. Gotcha. Do you want fries with that?
--Douglas Farrago, MD
~ Hehehehe... this is where informed choices are made, & we hope that u digest most part of it before we proceed to all of these.

• I used to have my secretary page me after I had spent five minutes in the room with a difficult or overly chatty patient. Then I'd run out, saying, "Oh, I have an emergency."
--Oncologist, Santa Cruz, California
~I sometimes do this with a nurse whom I can rely on.

Many patients assume that female physicians are nurses or therapists. I can't tell you how often I've introduced myself as Dr. M. and then been called a nurse, therapist, or aide and asked to fetch coffee or perform other similar tasks. I have great respect for our nurses and other ancillary personnel and the work they do, but this doesn't seem to happen to my male colleagues. --Physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor, Royal Oak, Michigan
~ I get "The Lady" or "Nurse", which most of the times annoys me & I do feel insulted. Thanks.

The most unsettling thing for a physician is when the patient doesn't trust you or believe you. --Obstetrician-gynecologist, New York City
~Unless if the doc is seriously ... unreliable. Yet, it is impossible for each doc to know every single knowledge in medicine world.

It really bugs me when people come to the ER for fairly trivial things that could be dealt with at home/ GP. --ER physician, Colorado Springs, Colorado
~Emergency Department is for EMERGENCY cases. Enuf said.

• Your doctor generally knows more than a website. I have patients with whom I spend enormous amounts of time, explaining things and coming up with a treatment strategy. Then I get e-mails a few days later, saying they were looking at this website that says something completely different and wacky, and they want to do that. To which I want to say (but I don't), "So why don't you get the website to take over your care?"
--James Dillard, MD
~Well, nowadays most medical journals are online anyways, but only accessible by medical professionals. The ones that patients go to sometimes are not alwiz reliable, understandably patients today are more educated than patients before. But nuthing beats real contact with a real doc because there r millions of presentations to any medical conditions & webbies dont tell u this.

• I know that Reader's Digest recommends bringing in a complete list of all your symptoms, but every time you do, it only reinforces my desire to quit this profession.
--Douglas Farrago, MD
~Desire to quit the profession... also because of lotsa other stuff.

Pills, Pills, Pills

• Sometimes it's easier for a doctor to write a prescription for a medicine than to explain why the patient doesn't need it. --Cardiologist, Bangor, Maine
~GP do this sometimes. Junior docs at the hospital dont, well, mebbie at least here in Au.

• Those so-called free medication samples of the newest and most expensive drugs may not be the best or safest. --Internist, Philadelphia
~Agree.

• Taking psychiatric drugs affects your insurability. If you take Prozac, it may be harder and more expensive for you to get life insurance, health insurance, or long-term-care insurance. --Daniel Amen, MD, psychiatrist, Newport Beach, California
~Agree. But if u need it, u need it.

Ninety-four percent of doctors take gifts from drug companies, even though research has shown that these gifts bias our clinical decision making. --Internist, Rochester, Minnesota
~ To be honest, as hospital docs, we sooooo love goodies, but we dont really care about what the drug companies tell us about their drugs. We treat patients how we were taught at uni/ in our training. We just like the pens, cups, notepads, etc. simply because they show to the outside world that we are doctors. =)

Bills, Bills, Bills

I really do know why you're bringing your husband and three kids, all of whom are also sick, with you today. No, they are not getting free care. --Douglas Farrago, MD
~Plus, once I step out of the practice/ I'm on my off days, I dont wear my 'Doctor' title anymore... at least here in Aussie lah. I dont want to be accountable for any mishaps around me. The court processes are just unbearable.

Free Advice

• Avoid Friday afternoon surgery. The day after surgery is when most problems happen. If the next day is Saturday (or public holidays), you're flying by yourself without a safety net, because the units are understaffed and ERs are overwhelmed because doctors' offices are closed. --Heart surgeon, New York City
~I sooo totally agree with this. Especially here in Melbourne.

• In many hospitals, the length of the white coat is related to the length of training. Medical students wear the shortest coats. --Pediatrician, Baltimore
~This doesnt apply to Au hospital/ clinics.

• Often the biggest names, the department chairmen, are not the best clinicians, because they spend most of their time being administrators. They no longer primarily focus on taking care of patients. --Heart surgeon, New York City
~Agree.

The Darker Side

It saddens me that my lifelong enjoyment and enthusiasm for medicine has all but died. I have watched reimbursement shrink, while overhead has more than doubled. I've been forced to take on more patients. I work 12- to 14-hour days and come in on weekends. It's still the most amazing job in the world, but I am exhausted all the time. --Vance Harris, MD, family physician, Redding, California
~We dont own our lives anymore.. the courts, the nurses, the public, everything... exhausting mentally & physically, somehow the enthusiasm can just fade away...

• In many ways, doctors are held to an unrealistic standard. We are never, ever allowed to make a mistake. I don't know anybody who can live that way. --James Dillard, MD
~ Sob sob.

Not a day goes by when I don't think about the potential for being sued. It makes me give patients a lot of unnecessary tests that are potentially harmful, just so I don't miss an injury or problem that comes back to haunt me in the form of a lawsuit. --ER physician, Colorado Springs, Colorado
~There's no more cost effective/ efficient/ all that crap. The law is our biggest 'Big Brother'. Plus, health care system is never a cost effective/efficient/ environment friendly anyways.

• It's pretty common for doctors to talk about their patients and make judgments, particularly about their appearance. --Family physician, Washington, D.C.
~Among doctors, & mebbie to others if the patients are interesting enuf, but confidentiality is still guaranteed ;) But, hey, we somehow can tell what diseases a patient might have once they come to our attendance.

• Plan for a time when the bulk of your medical care will come from less committed doctors willing to work for much lower wages. Plan for a very impersonal and rushed visit during which the true nature of your problems will probably never be addressed and issues just under the surface will never be uncovered.
--Vance Harris, MD
~Somehow true.

At least a third of what doctors decide is fairly arbitrary. --Heart surgeon, New York City
~True. We only have discovered probably 1/5 of the whole wide world's health care conditions & their managements. Its impossible to know everything.

Doctors are only interested in whether they are inconvenienced -- most don't care if you have to wait for them. --Family physician, Washington, D.C.
~Sadly this is true. Well, at least to the hospital doctors. Again, its all because of the law, the pay vs expenses, training, nurses, etc. Unless if the patient is going to die there & then if we dont attend to their needs.

The Sensitive Side

• When a parent asks me what the cause of her child's fever could be, I just say it's probably a virus. If I told the truth and ran through the long list of all the other possible causes, including cancer, you'd never stop crying. It's just too overwhelming. --Pediatrician, Hartsdale, New York
~True.

• Most of us haven't been to see our own physicians in five years. --Physical medicine specialist, Royal Oak, Michigan
~True. Unless if we need some 'medications' or other things.

When a doctor tells you to lose 15 to 20 pounds, what he really means is you need to lose 50.
--Tamara Merritt, DO, family physician, Brewster, Washington
~Well... But, somehow I personally dont really care, I only care about the waist, bum, thigh, arm measurements...

• Though we don't cry in front of you, we sometimes do cry about your situation at home. --Pediatrician, Chicago
~And somehow most of us dissociate ourselves from the social part of the patient's conditions. At the end of the day, a doctor is just another job, who has to attend to clients...

Anatomy of a Doctor's Bill
Just how much of the $100 your doctor charges for taking 30 minutes to investigate your stomach pain goes into his pocket? After paying the bills, he gets less than half. The breakdown, according to Robert Lowes, senior editor at Medical Economics:

$3.50 for malpractice insurance

$3.50 for equipment, repairs, and maintenance

$6 for supplies, including gowns, tongue depressors, and copy paper

$7 for rent and utilities

$11 for office expenses, such as telephones, accounting fees, advertising, medical journals, licenses, and taxes

$28 for secretary, office manager, and medical assistant salaries and benefits

$41 Amount that goes into the doctor's paycheck

Over the course of a year, that adds up to $155,000, the annual salary of the average family physician. That number rose just 3.3% between 2002 and 2006, while expenses increased nearly 25% over the same period.
~All these figures are in the States. Somehow it can be much worse in Victoria, Au. How sad.

Aiiyaaaa....

Ni la time paling tension utk all docs kat Aussie ni, well, at least all the junior + non-consultant docs lah. Setiap tahun kena reapply jobs to everywhere. Setiap tahun kena renew cover letter, resume & referees. Setiap tahun jugak kena go thru interviews & the waiting period utk dpt the contract is just excruciating. Paling susah nak dptkan referees coz sometimes you just dont get that continuity of contacts with your consultant. Syarat nak dpt referee utk next yr's job plak kena tahap consultant, which is understandable coz diorang la yg dah qualified & paling bertanggungjawab kalau org yg diorang refer tu sucks! I think cover letter, resume & interview tu even tho susah, bleh makan la kiranye kalau tenang & berfikiran rational waktu buat tu. Adohaaaiii...

At this moment, I'm looking around Melbourne of where I would like to work next year. Most job applications close around early July for General Year & Critical Care Year. Yang lain2 such as Psych, Surgical or Medical mostly early August. Disebabkan aku ni tak berminat nak jadi physician or surgeon, so terpaksala aku chop chop chop now, especiallly gua akan terbang ke M'sia in early July for holidays. Hafta get my acts straight. Lemah kepala lutut aku setiap kali fikir menda ni. Makan tak brapa lalu, tido tak brapa lena or terlebih tido je jadinye.

Now tgh tunggu si Ray White ni mana la tak dtg2 utk house inspection. Diorang kata nak dtg nak tgk rumah. Apa ntah. Tak pernah nak on time. Takpe la, buat je la kerja2 lain dulu in the meantime.. aaaiiiii...

Ya Allah, berilah aku kekuatan dan ketenangan untuk menghadapi semua ini Ya Allah. Dengan limpah rahmatMu, Ya Allah, aku memohon dipermudahkan segala urusan ini, Ya Allah. Hanya kepadaMu aku bermohon dan hanya kepadaMu aku berserah. Amiin, Ya Rabbana Alamin.

Chapter One

Lifehouse (Album 2005: Lifehouse)

All the stars are out tonight it feels as though I might
Make some sense out of this madness will it turn out right
Who's to say where the wind will blow

Time will tell us if we're out of answers when it stops
Climb back down to the beginning
Take it from the top
Who's to say where the wind will blow

What happens when all your dreams are lying on the ground
Do you pick up the pieces all around
and if the world should fall apart hold on to what you know
Take your chances turn around and go

All the leaves are turning and the sky fades to gray
Strange our life coincides with the seasons of today
Who's to say where the wind will blow

What happens when everything is lying on the ground
Do you pick up the pieces all around

and if the world should fall apart hold on to what you know
Take your chances turn around and go

Carry on you say
Bring the best of today
All I see is struggling on the way

Maybe when the sun crashes through the gray
I can find the strength to make it through the day
Through the day

What happens when all your dreams are lying on the ground
Do you pick up the pieces all around

and if the world should fall apart hold on to what you know
Take your chances turn around and go
Take your chances turn around and go

Like water & oil?

Work has been crazy at the hospital coz its my turn to work AM shift this week. Worked past weekends & the holiday. NOT good at all!! On top of the things that I whinged about in my previous entry, there were also all the paperwork that I didnt get to do PLUS the midwives who were (and always) on our necks to deal with those without any empathy for us. All they know is, you are as the doctor its your job. We dont care if you have to cover other units but we want our asses to be cleaned by us & you... NOW!!! Tu la their attitude.
Gila bangang. Diorang ni memang lagi bangang dari nurses lain. So bangang. Takde words nak ckp dah. O&G is sooo not my thing. Yucks!!

Btw, the regular registrar had a replacement today coz he's MIA again. The replacement was org hudhud. I didnt know if he was affected in anyway by the fact that I was a paeds resident, but I was kinda nerves. But mcm biasa... pagi tadi aku tried to be as professional as I could. And I guess he was as well.

Baik gila. He taught me paeds stuff. Generally, most paeds reges are soooo nice anyways. Thats why they are paediatricians..soon. Well, anyways, there's a Code Green: O&G + Paeds emergency code case. Very interesting. Cool giler, got to put another IV in a newborn, premature baby. Not cool for mum tho. Everyone was okay in the end. This particular registrar ajar macam2 & went thru lotsa stuff that I didnt kno. Baik.

Then kami gi makan lunch sama, mula2 cam tak pasti jugak coz dia ckp dia bwk makanan halal dia la kan. Gua takde menda, so gua beli new boysenberry cornetto (sedap) & strawberry big M.
Then kitorang dok kat cafe tu. Me in my scrubs & dia dgn kopiah dia. heheheh. Ckp pasal kerja, life mcm dah kenal lama. But aku memang slalu baik & peramah pon. Professional. ;)

The day went okay than yesterday. Alhamdulillah. Quite a pleasant experience wit that reg. I'm glad it happened. Baik gila dia ni. Dia ajar, dia buat lawak. Cool gila despite dia tau aku Muslim. NCIS repeat mlm ni pun ada citer pasal ni.
It shows that sometimes water & oil can mix.

Weekends Shift

Terbangun awal coz tido awal gila last nite. Kol 930pm dah masuk tido. Awal benar rasanye. Susah nak fall asleep last nite coz badanku sakit2 lagi from kerja smlm. Pagi ni ok sket. Tension tul siap mimpi pasal kerja sejak mlm kelmarin lagi.

Coz byk masa before I'm actually supposed to go get ready, ni la nyibuk2kan diri kat blog ni. Heheheh. Breakie sambil tgk cartoons on tv. Baju2 tudung2 semua dah gosok last week lagi for the whole 8 hari gua kerja.

Today kerja long hours from 8 til 1030pm. Penyet.. penyet... I really hope that today will be well better than yesterday. And the following days.

Ciaooo...

Friday, June 05, 2009

Blehhhh... Ntah apa2

Such a stoopid day at work today.
I arrrived early in the hope that it would be a good day. Ye la, semangat baru nak pakai mekap gi kerja. Rugi je beli mekap byk2 kalau tak pakai. Slalu malas pakai gi kerja. Silap besar la dtg awal tadi. It could have been.. but nope, such a bangang day.

We were short of a registrar. Last nite's craziness carried on to today. Grumpy boss. Rude pathology people. Rude & dumb midwives. Ever-dragging ward round... it went on & on & on NON-STOP from midday til God knows when (coz I left at 630pm & it was still going on.. gila!). And aku curi2 utk ke toilet coz boss mmg tak nak berhenti for anything. Its going to be a long weekend.. good for other people.. but horrible for us doctors who have to work on public holidays/ weekends. Nuthing will be functioning until Tuesday. So kena settle paperwork, liaising with others, blablabla, aaaalll before 5pm today. Soooo dumb. And I had my lunch at 1900hrs today.. next meal afta my breakie. Duh! And to top it up.. it was such a beautiful day outside & I didnt get any chance at all to enjoy the sunlight!! Tengok dari jauh je la, kempunan. Tension gua.

Ingatkan nak bubuh gambar style aku gi kerja pagi tadi.. saja-saja, atas permintaan ramai *wink* Tapi tak sempat nak amik gambar & malas coz letih nak mampos now. Nak tercabut tulang blakang aku ni. Hangus.

Anyways, dapat dah my Food Safety course certificate today. Woohoooo!! Bleh la aku jadi chef lepas ni.
Will post up the photo of my cert bila2 aku tak penat okaaayy.

Now masa utk tidoooo.. coz esok, lusa, monday (public holiday.. queen's bday), dan seterusnye 'til friday gua kerja non-stop long hours.. penyet la gua.... adohaaaiii..

Blogger Award Friendship

Thanks to TTM & Ly. for the award. Cool!! Mcm biasa gua slow sket nak pikir jawapan2 ni.
Anyways..
1-copy babge"2009 CUTE'S BLOGGER AWARD"untuk letakkan
diblog anda

2-Link/ceritakan kembali siapa yang memberikan award ini
kepada anda?

3-Setiap blogger mesti menyatakan beberapa fakta/hobi diri sendiri sebelum memilih penerima award seterusnya (anda di tag).

1. Indecisive. Very. It all buds from my love of life & the variety of things in this world. E.g. I'll stand forever in front of the shirt rack if I cant decide between the purple shirt or the white shirt. Its either I grab both or not buying any at all. Adoh!!

2. Short attention span. I get bored very easily to the same thing over & over again, as well as things that run more than 1/2hour without any interuption. Hence, I tend to multitask a lot until my brain goes craaaazy. Hahaha. Had trouble learning at college & uni because of this, and having trouble at work esp. at important meetings, long surgeries and the patients yg takleh stop bebel abt their life stories... (duh, who wants to know, focus please!). Also, love the tv/ computer against the cinema, simply because of adverts/ internet & my growing anxiety after 20minutes sitting in the cinema chair no matter wat the movie is.

3. Love my role as a housewife, a daughter, a sister, and especially as a woman, simply because of the things we enjoy doing; make ups, fashion, cooking, gardening, kemas rumah, making my family happy. Hahahaha.. lame gila!

4. I love the sunshine. And like I sed before, I tend to get this seasonal depression in winter, which I am battling at the moment. My biological thermostat has a narrow range of temperature: 18°c-32°c, with peak comfortable temperature being 24°c-27°c. Below the range I start to freeze & above it I start to melt & lose my vision. Mengada je. Hehhehehe.

5. Very particular about food. Only like good food & dont fancy any eateries in Melbourne or moth-in-law's cooking. Sometime if wat I'm cooking doesnt taste up to my standard, I wont eat it. So far, mum's & M'sian food are the best, as well as TTM's & Ly's & Mak Long's.

6. Easily obsessed of stuff. All time favourites are mandarins, handbags & soda of any kind. I've moved on from mentos, socks, eyeshadows, spider solitaire, etc. Currently am obsessed with a Korean skincare brand The Skin Food.

7. I value life important luxury: SLEEP. Sleep is the key to a beautiful mind and skin.

8. As much as I advise my patients to take conservative measures to all life & health issues, I dont have the patientce to wait. Simply because I cant afford the time & energy to wait for things to take its own course. E.g. if I had an important presentation tomorrow & I couldnt sleep now, I would just pop in some tabs rather than wait & get anxious. If pain was limiting my everyday activities, I would not hesitate to take some painkillers to keep me going. Of course these are within the limitations of pharmacology & medicine.. hehehehhe...

9. If people see me as a modern person, I am very much a conservative kampung girl. I cherish most logical & interesting traditional values & cultures, not only M'sian but also the many other world's cultures.

10. I hate it with true passion when people making remarks about my height, especially those in M'sia, tak kira la sedara-mara or people I know. I dont have to be reminded about how tall I am especially from those insensitive bantut people. Just simply they are bantut that doesnt mean that they can do wat they want & stare at me in the LRT, shopping malls, everywhere... Cukup2 la tu, aku dah puas face discrimination of the way I am esp. here in Australia.
*Pengalaman kat skolah dulu.. budak2 genit (a.k.a. gediks) dipuja2 semua org & yg slightly taller will be kutuk-ed by ppl. How dumb is that? Budak2 kemetot mcm kerusi ni kalau jahat cam mana pun, gediks semacam, perangai huduh ya amat, tetap akan dipuja.. ye la cutenyeee la kan. Kalau yg tinggi2 tu.. apa diorang pakai, apa diorang ckp semua dipertikaikan.. baghal sungguh. Tak sedar ke diorang tu menghina ciptaan Allah swt? Diorang ni mana la peduli kan.. asalkan gumbira di hati menghina org lain...

11. I love life. Artitistic photographs (tribute to all of us, esp. Bakri), butterflies, flowers, interesting shapes of things (e.g. round tummy? hahahaah), the ocean, the busy poluted bright cities, different clothe materials, buttons, and everything in between.

12. Lastly & the most important: I love my family, hubby & precious friends (you know who you are, guys). No matter how life is, it wont be survivable without them :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There, panjang gila. Hahahahhah, aku takleh decide apa nak tulis.

Board Games =)

On the way back from handing in my timesheet, gua pegi singgah ke Chaddy (mana lagi) to buy some stuff. Hubby is not well & took 2 days off work. Dia teringin nak makan rendang ayam, so aku pon pi la cari serai coz dah takde dlm fridge. Kesian hubby.

Anyways, lepas dah dpt serai, tergerak hati nak gi KMart jap. Saja buang masa. Got myself a boardgame- Scattergories. Menambah koleksi boardgames yg melambak2 tu. Hehehhheee. Yes, its time to main boardgames dgn hubby (kesian dia terpaksa layan aku kat rumah dlm sakit2 tu).
New member: Scattergories


Some of my boardgames =)




Some other boardgames that I've brought back home to M'sia are: Family Cranium, Simpsons' Cluedo, Junior Monopoly, Kaleidoscope Krusade (my favourite coz aku asik menang je..hehehehe), Cat in the Hat, Zigity, Boggle, etc tak ingat brapa byk dah.. to add to my other board games kumpul sama2 sejak kecik with family. Yay!

Nanti bila2 hafta play these with frens & family. Memang best. Dah jadi tradisi sejak zaman kecik2 dulu sampai la zaman student sampai la ni.

Mlm nanti nak gi masak rendang ayam utk hubby & then insyaAllah sambung gosok baju kerja since now dah back on morning shifts, also some paperworks.

Ciao.

Tak jadi nak masak rendang for hubby. We went to Chaddy bcoz there's a big stocktake sale at Myer, David Jones, Country Road, KMart, etc. Only some stores were open though. We had dinner kat Wagamama lepas membeli-belah tu. Takde la sesedap mana. I cannot imagine eating these food all the time. Kena masak jugak, ikut selera tekak kami.

We bought a 5.1L pot, pizza pan, vegetarian cookbook (dah takde idea nak masak sayur coz sayur2 kat Melbourne ni sumer tak sesedap/ authentic cam kat M'sia), bedsheet & quilt cover. These were 50% off, so kami pun beli menambah koleksi. Kumpul sket2, lama2 complete, ye tak?

Ada satu menda menarik gua beli mlm tadi, takde offer pun, but pasal murah, rembat je. Its a dual-function bottle for vinegar & olive oil. Menarik. Comel. Lepas basuh terus isi malt vinegar & extra virgin olive oil. Cantik je nampak :)
