Instagram: To Have or Not To Have?

Peer pressure lah nak ada Instagram nih. My brothers & my friends banyak kali asik tanya bila aku nak ada account instagram. Hubby yg busy dgn DSLR dia pun dah ada instagram. Haha.. kampung betul la aku nih cuma ada fb, twitter, blog je. Instagram pun dah disonglap oleh fb now.

Aku cam hmmm... kena buat SWOT analysis before I actually get one. Dulu- dulu tak nak coz masa tu tengah study for the primary ED exams. Then now dah abis exam, at least tak perlu nak stress study for at least another 2 years for the final fellowship ED exams. Ntah apa-apa je idea melagha menjelma masa tgh study tu. Now macam rasa malas nak buat apa-apa pun. 

At the moment, I am very much comfortable enjoying life with minimal connection to alam maya. Kadang tu bila kuar w some friends they dont really let their fon down. Rasa tak syok la pulak coz kita nak enjoy the moment with them. Kalau nak sibuk online better tak payah jumpa kan. But, tak tau la if tetiba kat spital nanti ke, malam karang ke, esok ke apa dah ada instagram kan. And aku harap at that time aku takde la sibuk ngadap fon/ ipad je coz sibuk nak build my image di alam maya, & forgetting the real world I am living in.

Dilemma..

OHS Workshop: Self-defence at Work Place

Petang semalam we had this very interesting workshop during our registrars teaching. OHS (occupational health & safety). This guys was talking about aggression at work, which we face every single day at the hospital. Mostly by mental health patients, frustrated patients & family, those in pain, those in fear, delirius patients, etc whatever situation it is. 

A lot of the workshop involved theory, discussions etc. Then second half kami diajar how to physically deflect & defend ourselves if we are physically attacked, at the same time to buy some moments while help is seeked/ coming. Very interesting. Ada gaya-gaya martial arts sket, cuma modified sket. We were also reminded on how not to counter attack 'coz selalunye once we are attacked we tend to naturally want to balas balik in view of self protection & making sure the other person wont be able to attack further. Kalau buat gitu, automatically we are liable for assault. Susah kan dok kat negara yg sket2 saman & well-developed legal system. 

Ada la lebam-lebam sket my limbs 'coz kami disuruh practise with each other to almost a real setting. Ada defend kalau kena grab kat tangan, masa kena tendang, avoiding kena gigit/ ludah oleh patient, defend kalau kena cekik, headlock, defend kena push on the floor, etc. Seronok aaa. Teringat masa zaman karate training kat uni dulu. Hahahahah.

Less than 2 wks ago, this neurosurgeon was attacked & stabbed multiple time kat foyer Western Hospital, Victoria. Critical. Sebelum-sebelum tu banyak news pasal hospital staff kena serang mostly dalam hospital/ compound, ada jugak somewhere outside in the public. Victoria banyak sangat mental & social issues. Macam-macam things implemented especially now to enhance staff safety. But ada these new legislations coming up that it will be a lot more difficult to use the physical restraining on patients & others esp in psychiatry settings. We are moving towards prevention & pharmacological restraints as the first steps, before absolutely necessary to use the physical & mechanical restraints. Tough.

Naudzubillah la me or my loved ones or anyone being attacked. But hopefully kalau nak terjadi jugak kuasa Allah swt kan, Allah swt kasi akal kita panjang to be able to defend ourselves well. 

Take care all.

Ngantuk! & Then More Food

Tadi tido afta Subuh. Bangun dekat2 tengah hari. Kira tak cukup tido la tu. Tapi paksa diri jugak bangun. Kalau tak abis la malam ni takleh tido. Esok dah la AM shift, then selasa PM shift. Selalu this particular boss garang AM shift monday & PM shift tuesday. Abis la kalau ngantuk & slow je for those shifts. Sejak bangun tak minum caffeine lagi ni. Kasi tido awal mlm karang. Then jap gi kena iron baju for the whole week. Takde la terkocoh-kocoh sebelum gi kerja nanti.

Hubby & I just got back from grocery shopping kat Chadstone. Slightly expensive if to compare dgn pasar Dandenong or pasar cina Clayton or Springvale. Tapi malas la nak drive gi sana. Sini dekat. Kena masak today 'coz esok start kerja balik, so kena ada food to bawak bekal. Takde idea lagi nak masak apa. Tapi kuarkan ikan, ayam & sausage ayam. Also dah kuarkan perencah Brahim's percik mebbie for the ikan, then the sausage tu mebbie nak buat pizza segera guna roti pita. 

Nanti aku update jap gi. 

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

Okay, now I'm getting ready to sleep. Harap-harapnye boleh la tido coz esok ni shift pagi, and boss garang tu biasanye shift esok & selasa. Nak lagi best, harap-harapnye dia tgh holiday for the next few weeks. Heheheh..

Ni update apa aku masak tadi. 

Sayur campur kailan, brocoli, kobis, kacang buncis. Ikan percik guna rempah segera Brahim's. Ayam masak merah terlebih santan. Haiiyaaa!

  
Pizza segera guna pita bread mini besar tapak tangan. Isinye sausage ayam, nenas dlm tin, pitted olive beli kat Coles deli tadi, fresh button mushroom, some cheese (corby ke apa ntah). Senang sket nak bawak bekal esok & lusa gi kerja.


 Dah masak!

Ni bonus brownies aku buat hari tu, saja-saja. Ingat nak bake for nigth shift tapi mcm sedap je so aku simpan la makan sendiri-sendiri je. 
 
Okay, good night all. Semoga minggu ini lebih baik dari minggu-minggu sebelum ni. Semoga kita semua diberi kekuatan, kemudahan & keberkatanNYA.

Menyampah Tak Boleh Tido..!!

Geram la pulak dah near 4am, tapi takleh lelapkan mata.

Tadi aku tido like normal around 11'ish. Walaupon siang bangun kinda lambat, I tried to do a lot of things so that super tired boleh tido awal, since Monday I will be working a.m. shift. Pas tu terjaga la pulak around 130am, then takleh tido semula lepas tu. Mebbie banyak sangat tido since abis night shift friday hari tu or mebbie pasal byk sgt makan chocolate brownies that I baked the other day. Bosan dah surf the net hoping I would go back to sleep, tapi tak boleh. 

Then bangun to do stuff, siap buat double dose of camomile tea. I really hope I could lelap just for mebbie for 3,4 hours. Siang ni nak buat byk kerja rumah. Terseksa nye la tak boleh tido balik. 

Sleep is a life luxury yg sometimes some ppl take for granted. I know for a fact it is a very much life luxury for me. I've had a long-standing sleeping issues since zaman student lagi. Mostly managed with simple lifestyle changes, and masa exams hari tu with some help. 

Ni mata aku dah berair-air sket ni. Hopefully lepas padam this computer boleh la lelap dgn lena & recharge cepat sikit. Nak bangun awal hari ni.

Sihat ke Akhir Hayat

Teringat sorang makcik one of my patients in ED the other night. She was 92. Independant, no walking aids for ambulation. Dia admitted to short stay in ED coz for observation & for wound care with hospital in the home (HITH) review in a.m. Dia naik bas, then bas tu break, then sorang lagi besar dari dia jatuh atas dia. No broken bones. Tapi ada large subdermal haematoma on the medial of middle third of this right leg. We tried to drain it overnight tapi tak berjaya & tak berani nak make a larger incision than 1cm takut its actually deeper than superficial skin. 

Anyways, I'm sure she's okay now. That's not what I wanted to tell here anyways. Aku kagum how she was very fit & healthy, sharp & alert in mind, despite she was almost 100 yrs old. She only took aspirin & few tablets for blood pressure & cholesterol, which semua org ada diseases ni once u reach above 50. I am hoping myself & those I love will be like this, sihat ke akhir hayat & tak terseksa menghabiskan sisa-sisa hidup. 

Simple easy principles to lead a healthy life yg semua org tau, tapi mebbie cakap senang buat kurang senang, tapi hendak seribu daya tak nak seribu kelentong:

1. Spiritual balance.
2. Eat healthy & balanced (nutrition-wise & portion-wise).
3. Exercise.
4. Rest & recharge. 
5. Mind growth & balance.
6. Network & relationship balance.
7. Avoid injuries (mind, soul, body).
8. Me time. 

There, general principles for leading a healthy life. =)

A Food Day & Kafe' Laksamana


Pagi semalam had brunch at Dr. AI's place in the city. Had ebi burger that she made from scratch. Best gila. 

 Ebi burger by Dr. AI
 
  

Last night's dinner at Dr. NA pulak was great- laksam, nasi dgn ikan bakar, gulai siam, etc, kuih-muih, etc. Penuh perut until this a.m. Haha. Busy betul my social life nowadays. 

The sayurs I made: masak bendi kacang kobis, peria masak rempah, kerabu kacang panjang & pegaga.
 

Koleksi makanan kat rumah Dr. NA
And the grumbling & pain I had a few days ago wasnt gastroenteritis, Alhamdulillah. Cuma perut sensitive with oily food, hence triggered my gastritis. Had multiple doses of pantoprazole & mylanta double strength, lucky they helped very much.

Pagi tadi gi beramai-ramai breakie at Admiral Cheng Ho in Abbotsford, corner of Johnston St & Nicholson St dekat-dekat city sana. Went with Dr. MJ, Dr. BB & Dr. ZF, & Dr. AI datang lambat sket frm the city. Its a newly opened cafe in Abbotsford. 

Mine: zuchini patties, beetroot, hot chocolate, orange juice.

Dr. MJ's: Quinoa pancake with some bubur, mocha.
 

Dr. ZF's: Polenta with muschrooms.
 

Dr. BB's: Granola with mixed fruits.
 

Great interior but small. Great food deco & tasted good too just kurang garam sket, mebbie coz my pallate dah biasa salty food & I love salty food. All of them enjoyed the coffee very much sampai order 2x different coffees each time, alas aku tak boleh hv the coffee coz working night shifts this week, & tonight is the first shift. So kena tido in the afternoon. Rugi. But definitely will come back during my none night-shift day. 

After breakie all of them went out jalan-jalan shopping to various places but I had to go back to sleep. Hmmm... bukan dapat tido awal pun. Tertido pon around 3++ & bangun before Maghrib tadi. Hopefully minggu ni the whole Victoria sihal walafiat & damai-damai je. =)

Harap-harap Bukan Gastroenteritis...

Perut aku & hubby dah mcm mual-mual & meragam sejak a few hours ago. We had some oily kebab from Dandenong market for lunch after beli groceries tadi. In the past 2,3 weeks ni there's a lot of gastro running around. Likely related to the fluctuating heatwave here in Melbourne. Aku ni jarang la kena gastroenteritis (cirit-birit) ni despite my repulsive eating habit, Alhamdulillah. 
Kat spital pon ramai yg bergastro bagai. Ada yg biasa-biasa je sehari of fluid therapy dah boleh balik. Ada yg critically ill sampai multi-organ impairment. Dasyat betul penangan gastroenteritis ni. 

Aku harap-harap la tak berpanjangan and hope this is just the reaction to eating filthy oily food. Kadang-kadang bila aku makan oily food from outside perut rasa tak sedap, epigastric pain, nauseated & altered bowel habit. Gastritis or gastroenteritis? Kalau this is a true gastro memang naya la coz this coming monday aku will be working night shifts again, but in ED. More over esok nak gi breakie feast at Dr. AI's place and then housewarming Dr. NA in the evening. Dah siap-siap beli fruits for the breakie & sayurs for the evening housewarming. 

Esok ni angan-angan nak buat kerabu mangga + pegaga, sayur bendi + snow peas + kacang panjang + kobis & peria goreng. Cita-cita besar la tu. Hehehe.

ICU Cover Shifts

Minggu ni aku cover ICU for 1 week. Night shifts Monday to Wednesday, 13hour shift each. Then Saturday, Sunday on call- maknanye sapa-sapa yg sakit aku akan dipanggil bekerja di ICU. Aku doakan sangat tak dipanggil kerja coz I have lots to do at home & socially. Well, I would like to believe that I have life outside medicine, like everyone else.

Minggu ni baru minggu ke-2 of the new contract year. So my resident pon ala-ala budak baru belajar. Alah, nak meyampah pon takde guna. Diorang baru start the year, baru start the rotation, & ICU is not an easy rotation. Aku masa mula-mula buat kerja as a resident a few years ago pon kelam-kabut gak. Mebbie until now jugak. Haha. Tapi skang aku dah registrar. I dont hafta do much of the paperwork. Semua resident aku yg buat. Another registrar calls his resident his 'monkey'. Hehehe. Aku takde la kejam gitu. Its a shame aku cover 1 week je coz kalau tak boleh aku ngajar the residents some stuff.

Minggu ni pon cover another registrar yg akan amik their primary ED exams next week. Seb baik dah ada pengalaman jadi ICU registrar last year. So takde la kelam-kabut sangat. Plus now dah abis primary exam, takde la rasa mcm menyampah kat satu dunia bila gi kerja. Kira mcm dah redha & lebih ikhlas buat kerja coz terasa beban primary ED exams dah takde. Mebbie this will change when I start my research project & studying for my fellowship exams.

Anyhow, first night was cruizy. So ada masa to teach & talk about cases to my resident yg baru lagi tu. Got to show him how to do an artline & a CVC. Each of us boleh tido about 1hour each, even though aku tak boleh tido when I'm working. Just pejam mata trying to tenangkan otak. Tak biasa tido on night shifts coz semua pon mcm terbalik kan. On day shift ada ke org tido, so kalau kerja night shift takkan nak tido kan. Cuma sengsara la kalau siang tu takleh tido before night shift starts. Seb baik aku ni jenis senang tido after night shift, & senang nak get to the other day/ afternoon shift cycles.

Second night was hell with sick patients around the hospital. Termasuk neonatal code blue in theater for emergency C-Section. Kesian my boss aku called byk kali due to all the referrals, codes, metcalls. Rehat pon tak boleh. My resident boleh la kot coz most of the times aku yg lari sana-sini. Its too early of the rotation to get the resident to go to the metcalls instead of me.

Third night, I was hoping it would've been a nice closure, malangnye busy ya amat not only with referrals, codes, metcalls bagai, tapi got stuck with lots of politics etc on appropriateness of  treatment of some patients. Pening. 

Each of those nights aku bawak food; chips, dips, masak brownies, chocs. Hey, you have to keep your team happy. After all they are the ones who you are working with as a team. Kalau environment tak best, moral kerja pon tak best, kerja pon jadi susah. 

2 hari tak jumpa laki. Had breakie with hubby on Monday morning. Monday night jumpa laki just before nak bertolak gi kerja. Aku abis kerja rostered 9am, but selalu abis handover ngokngek ngokngek sampai rumah dekat-dekat 10am. Hubby dah gi kerja awal-awal lagi. Tuesday night dia ada catch up dinner dgn his old friend yg dah lama tak jumpa. Aku plak start kerja at 8pm, so hafta leave house around 730pm. Wednesday night dia balik lambat coz of work. So jumpa dia on Thursday night after aku bangun tido. Seb baik dia balik awal 

So weekends ni on call for the sickies. Hope tak get called in. Amin.

Respect Others..

This is another good read on the healthcare system in Malaysia currently. Well, looking back on Australian healthcare system/ environment/ culture, I can probably say that its not much far away from Malaysian's. At least at those hospitals that I've worked at/ been to.

Here is the link:

http://mofrust.blogspot.com.au/2014/02/nurses-are-humans-too.html?showComment=1391994201338#c1641015400099433556
 

New Contract Year Feb 2014

All doctors in Victoria started their new contract year on the 3rd Feb 2014. I am one of those that are continuing from last year to this year. 
Agak rollercoaster jugak last week with the new doctors starting, ramai yg from other hospital network, ramai jugak yg first time residents/ registrars. Interns dah start 2 weeks prior so the first slow-wave dah lepas, now the next slow-wave pulak with the new doctors. 

I started the working year with being on the senior registrar job. This includes being in charge of the yellow stream & being the rapid assessment in-charge. Sangat-sangat stressful.
Nanti-nanti aku citer. 


This week I'm coverning someone on leave in ICU. Starting today with night shift sampai rabu malam. Then on-call for ICU over the weekends. Such long 3-14hour shifts; kami start at 8pm then rostered to 9am the next day, tapi tak semestinya abis on time coz ramai org byk ckp during handover. Minggu depan aku go back to ED.

I just got back from seeing my colleague for a breakfast at Axil Coffee in Hawthorn. Lama gila tak jumpa dia. Now dah nak ready untuk tido. Hopefully I get a good rest so that segar masa kerja nanti.

And aku doakan satu rakyat Victoria ni sihat sejahtera this week, so that takde yg berpusu-pusu masuk ED, and those on the wards semua stable takde metcalls/ code blue, and those in ICU are not extremely complex. Hopefully this week will be cruizy for everyone. Amiin, Ya Allah.

January 2014 Empties (Skin & Beyond)

Okay, this is part of my new year resolutions- to reduce wastage. One way is to keep tab of things that I already have including baking materials, shoes, house cleaning items and beauty bits. I still have lots to check, and so far I've covered some, and those cover how many, colours/ types, still using/ to toss away, frequent use/ rare, etc. Senang to make room for new things jugak.

Here are the January '14 empties in this sector.


From left to right, top to bottom:

1. Mentholatum; Sunplay SPF 65PA++ Watery Cool Clear & Smooth, 31ml. 
2. Soap & Glory; Hand Food, 50ml.
3. Skin Food; Peppermint Foot Cream, 100g.
4. Peter Thomas Roth; AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel, 57ml.
5. Missoni; Acqua Body Lotion, 200ml.
6. Clinique; Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, 50ml. 
7. Steam Cream; Sagittarius, 75g.
8. Molton Brown; Relaxing Yuan Zhi Bath & Shower; 50ml.
9. Lip Fusion; Infatuation Lip Plumping Gloss.
10. Silky White; SPF 15 Pressed Powder in 01 Ivory, 12g. 

1. Mentholatum; Sunplay SPF 65PA++ Watery Cool Clear & Smooth, 31ml. 
I bought this from either Guardian or Watson pharmacy in KL bila balik Malaysia tak ingat bila. But this had been in my box of yet-to-be-used items for a bit. I remember I started using this masa summer mebbie in 2012, then bawak balik Malaysia a few times, then terbiar je either in my handbag or kat dressing table unused during the cold seasons (at least 9mo of the year), then used again during the hot seasons. Tak ingat how much I bought it for, but must be on sale if not I would not have bought it in bundles. Loved the minty feeling soon after application, but kalau near the eye area kena kenyit mata lama sket kalau tak pedih, haha. Small fist-size bottle, senang for travelling letak dlm handbag. Great for humid season 'coz it was non-greasy, in fact not so good if you have dryer skin sebab kena moisturize the skin before applying this. I dont know the ingredients coz all in Japanese but I suspect mesti ada some sort of zinc oxide/ titanium oxide for the sunblock effect because this can cause white streaks on the skin if not applied evenly. Best la kot kalau teringin nak rasa being pasty white skin. Hehehe. I've got a few more bottles to go, in fact this is yg ke berapa botol dah coz I really like Mentholatum products.

2. Soap & Glory; Hand Food, 50ml.
Ni saja gatal beli when I was at Sephora, KL. Tak ingat berapa RM, & which Sephora I got it from. Nice creamy feeling, non-greasy when used in Melbourne. Small tube, easy to carry around. And I used it all over, not only on the hands. Skin (except face) is all skin after all. I didnt really enjoy the smell. And after less than 6mo of using this, I found that the product kinda split. Gross! Maybe the stock itself already kinda aged when I bought it, maybe its the Melbourne heatwave, I'm not so sure. Had to toss it away, even though there was still probably a quater tube left. 

3. Skin Food; Peppermint Foot Cream, 100g.
Mak & abah bought me this a while ago, & each time I got home for holidays I would always forget to bring this back to Melbourne. Until recently balik Malaysia, & found this while clearing up my dressing table/ beauty stock there. Nice & cool & fairly even application. Made my feet & everywhere else so smooth. Product itself was a bit runny & thin to my liking. But I didnt like the smell of peppermint in this product, maybe it was a bit old from time of purchase or something.

4. Peter Thomas Roth; AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel, 57ml.
I got this from E-Bay, straight from the US, because takde kat most of the Kit store here  at the time when I needed it. And I was too lazy to wait for the stock that seemed forever to come. Mahal jugak via E-Bay, but still cheaper than what I would have paid in Melbourne, & that included postage. It seemed to tame my pimples yg degil2 tu. Hence didnt really used it that frequent; used it everyday for 2,3 days only during pimples fest. And after a few weeks, the scar pun dah mula fading away. Nice! Clear gel, so senang nak guna under make up if desperate. Yg tak bestnye ialah its stored in a glass bottle, so berat to carry around for travel. This one is already licin. So now thinking of maybe I will repurchase again after I'm done with my current pimple treatment.

5. Missoni; Acqua Body Lotion, 200ml.
Hubby bought me a set of Missoni Acqua perfume a while back when we were still at the Kelly Street house. Lama gila dah tu, mebbie around 5yrs back? I really loved the perfume so finished the perfume quite quickly, and at that time sayang punye pasal hence kept the body lotion thinking might be using it sparingly. Like always, terlupa terus even bila dah pindah rumah. Teringat again a few weeks back, alas the product had split & smelled bad.. more tengik than nice. The product itself was runny & thin to my liking, yet its been a while that I actually have forgotten the real texture.

6. Clinique; Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, 50ml.
Clinique was my first department store beauty item I used about 10years ago. And maybe the longest brand I was ever loyal to. I somehow always come back to Clinique products esp this one & their makeups after trying cycles of different other brands. When I first tried this 10yrs ago I didnt really like it because I felt it didnt really sustain any moisture & my skin at that time was a bit weird. After a while and now I understand my mature aging skin more, this is one of the many water based moisturiser that I keep on repurchasing. Very very light & odourless clear gel. Great for high humid area e.g. in KL or in summer. But horrible for very dry skin. As the seasons change I add facial oil to this with each use, esp for night use/ in ac environment. Also use this under sunblock. Its in a jar, some ppl have issues with this due to germs/ senang tumpah/ etc. But I have no issues with jar products. Plastic jar, hence easy to carry around. Very happy with this. I think it is ~AU$60-65. Bought this particular one recently, tak ingat harga. 

7. Steam Cream; Sagittarius, 75g.
Got this straight from the UK webbie. Ada offer masa tu, so got a few for hubby & my family & some other people as gifts. It comes in many different tin designs. Soy based, thick, esp good in dry season/ ac environment. Slightly greasy if used in humid area. Made my skin very soft. Small pretty tin, easy to carry around. This was the so-many tins I bought & used so far. Again its a jar product, I have no issue with this at all. Recently amik balik from my parents coz I figured they wouldnt use this as much/ frequently coz its humid in Malaysia. Plus each of it has got an expiry date. Will definitely repurchase after I finish using my other body/hand/feet creams/lotions.

8. Molton Brown; Relaxing Yuan Zhi Bath & Shower; 50ml.
Got this from the UK, it was part of many mini body & hair Molton Brown product pact I bought in the UK. Started using this during my time studying for the primary exams. Despite its tiny bottle, I guess I didnt really use it that frequently. Maybe because I was distracted on using other shower products. It was supposed to calm & relax your mind. I would like to believe it did so. Managed to finish this purple gel early this month. Smelled hmmm.. different from all the shower products that I'm used to but I like to try something different every now & again so that I dont get bored. I dont like the smell of vanilla/ sweet stuff in my beauty products. This product itself, hmm, biasa je kot, a shower product is a shower product to me. 

9. Lip Fusion; Infatuation Lip Plumping Gloss.
Bought this via E-Bay because Mecca Cosmetica stopped stocking this a while ago. Thought this was good for my wrinkly lips, & it did work each time. Used this for work mostly. Cant remember the colour but probably doesnt really matter as I have pigmented lips anyway. It was sheer enough to not make my lips look nude-y. Minty on application but went away soon enough. Not too thick, not too thin. Just comfortable, I do like my lipgloss to be on the thicker side though. I have got other Lip Fusion Infatuation glosses in other colours, so will restock when they are almost gone. But kinda worried that this product might be discontinued. A bit mahal (tak ingat harga), but I love this.

10. Silky White; SPF 15 Pressed Powder in 01 Ivory, 12g.
This is from either Guardian or Watson in KL. Cheapo, & I loved it, & will always repurchase. And this one yg ke berapa pack dah since a few years ago tak ingat. Initially bought this when I was desperate but now suka pulak. Its not as halus as other more expensive pressed powder. It smells like an old woman makeup too, haha, but aku still suka yg ni. The colour is just nice for my skin. And it helps setting my foundation quicker, also it lasts a bit more than my other face powder. I'm not that particular about face powder that much, as to me the base (primer/ foundation/ concealler) is more important. To find a cheap powder that works well is exciting enuf to me. 

There, panjang berjela la pulak my first review. Ada lagi some other products yg dah abis/ buang but totally forgot to put aside for review & dah lupa which ones. 
Okay, gotta go. More to come.
Cheers. 

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

* All the products are either bought, given or of gift-with-purchase. The reviews are all my personal views anyways & not paid by anyone; everyone is entitiled to their own words on anything. I dont intend to make this blog as a beauty blog. This is just to keep tab of my belongings for minimizing waste, and for my own future references.

Dah Bosan Dengan Situasi Kini? Begitulah

http://zouldahanblog.blogspot.com.au/2014/01/aku-dah-bosan-menjadi-doktor-bertauliah.html?showComment=1391331877119

Good reading, good summary of our frustrations re: today's public health. I can say that here in Australia, we are going through the same frustrations as well.. 
Sigh... apa nak jadi dgn public..
