Horsemanship

It has been a month, I doctored.

I am now less BS. Less blow, less slow.

But I gues I am still blower and slower as compared to the average speed of other one month's old houseman.

Sometimes I wonder....

Why scolding is the most used medium of vertical teaching in our hospitals? What is it so hard that the superior cant tell the mistakes done by subordinates; properly and professionally? How time wasting is that to take a minute to understand how it happens?

At times I wonder if all of us can have a video of our career growth. I wonder how my MO wrote her first few documentations. Is it that newbie like us are extremely slow and blow in comparison to your first month that you need to be that disturbed?

At times I wonder....

Are we keeping the patient for our training and let fate takes the own course? How can refering back and forth can be the plan for the patient?

Why is it that we write TCA instead of PCA? TCA - To come again, PCA - Please come again?

Why is it wrong to write, TCA as soon as possible, as compared to TCA stat.

If you like to use stat so much, how on earth that you dont know the root word of stat? As much as I hate that word also I know it is statim. Perhaps we all should keep learning our dictions and terminology before you use them.

To those who think that I am depress, worry you shall not.

I am not. I am currently doing ok. The first test of housemanship is to be able to take scoldings, be it reasonable or not,

positively,

and the ang that you know, is as usual,

why am i so handsome. why.

Penang Food 3

Roti Canai.

They say the best roti canai is the Transfer Road one.

I think ok ok lo. A bit different la.

But the best roti canai? To me the best roti canai is the one I make in Edinburgh (obviously not i canai one la....the frozen ones aka paratha bought from pakistani shop and curry d.i.y). Try having that after puasa roti canai for 1 year.


By the road side of Transfer Road.

The stall is simple, hot and school canteen style.

The menu actually I havent explore fully yet. Usually just eat the roti canai + roti telur + kari ayam with ayam

Penyamaran power. Cannot see this is roti canai right? Fully banjir style.

You must specify if you dont want it to mix together. Ahneh like to save water and soap. And i like it to be mixed so this kind of OneEarth thingy i like.

Joke of the Month


I went out for supper the other day.

And then my mouth felt itchy for some snacks, so I treated myself with a pack of mah chee.

Something like flour with peanuts, sugar etc.

And then one of my friends said:

This one, actually, looks like....






Dog shit covered with beach sand.






How true. Hahahahaha

Football


Mari, lets talk about football.

In slightly different angle. From the point of view of the WAGS (wives and girlfriends)

How to react to your boyfriends' football enthusiasm?

Most of the males like to watch or play that game.

This is the very game that unites man like no other. This is the kind of hobby that when you are part of it, you feel like you are part of a very manly brotherhood with extra manhood.

And that is why most men like to be associated with football.

Someone working as cashier in Tesco with same job and pay sounds so much less MAN than the very cashier that works for Lee Hoe (Komtar punya sports shop) or Al-Ikhsan Sports.

SO, when you have such a the privilege to be crossing path with such a manly man, what should be your way of reaction, or rather, your way of life?

You can be extensively supportive, like following him to watch the match in a stadium or mamak, or watch together with him at home at 2.48am (like now the author is watching Chelsea vs Newcastle), keeping the football facts within your manicure and fingertips, or even to be pathologically wasting your youth to follow him to watch him playing futsal with his 9 other sweaty, smelly and very-bad-hair-do-friends.

"I love him, and his life interest as well."

I dont support such notion. really.

Or you can be pretentiously supportive, trying to grasp a thing or two about football, ranging from the high end knowledge of offside rule, to the low end knowledge of the fact that the ball should be kick towards the opposite direction together as a team with similar color of the top, so that you can scream together with him and as if you have been watching football since the day both your grandpas are born..

"I love him therefore I'll pretend to like his life as well."

I hate you.

Or you can be parentally supportive, trying to play the role of the "matured" one in the relationship. Like his mum lo, as long as he attends tuition, and stays at home to study when exam is near, he is allow to play a day or two. But then he must finish his homework first, you know those type of thing. This puts you on a higher moral ground, with more sacrificial status in all arguments, at all times.

"I love him, and if he wants to play football, and it is not interfering with my life yet, he can do his omg,time and money wasting football."

I can take this one.

Or Or,

You can just anti football. that's actually a superior break up tactic.

Penang Food 2

As I was so free, and has nothing to do, I offered to drive my mum around penang to jalan jalan and makan makan lo.

I woke up around 1030am (that's my very best effort!!). We went to Air Itam Market, to try to Duck Koay Chiap (lebih kurang like mihunkuih with loh duck - if this doesnt makes any sense then just ignore it)

The thing looks something like this:

The Koay Chiap

To me it does look like the normal mi hun kuih that we the bosan people of edinburgh selalu masak and makan.

The best thing about the Koay Chiap is the duck meat la. I think quite nice la.

The stall is in one of the coffeeshop along the road of the market la. Opposite the famous squat-down-cooking-sister's Curry Mee


After that late breakfast, my mum said very long time didnt go Kwan Yin Temple Liau. So I sien sien mah drive her there lo.

But I didnt buy the colok to pray like the my semangated mum la.

Really very hot coz that time around noon, and there's not many trees around that area.

But this uncle still can half-asleep just under a small umbrella shed. He is selling birds for devotees to let them go free.

Although they say it is very good to contribute to free animals, the cruel thing is these vendors are going to do like the polis malaysia, tangkap-lepas-and tangkap semula.

Jam


In life, most of the time, you have to just stop and let the jam settle. Or you take a huge turn to take on another route.

Hone hone no use one la.

Ngeh Ngeh Lai no bahagia one.

Ralat

Aiyo!

I forgot to mention the most important point abt the roti in the coffee place I blogged yesterday. The fella does not use the normal household technology to toast the bread but uses the old time charcoal type of stove.

Toast the bread have to squat down one.

Also, I just realised that I have been home for more than a month, meaning to say I have been a useless entity to this country's productivity for a month.

KKM.

Please process my application faster.

I am dying to work. My klorofil running low. Kenot photosynthesis anymore.

Btw, for those who really participated in my "Spot the Difference" activity in previous entry, thank you for your support.

HAHAH.

Penang Food 1

It is extremely difficult for me to blog about food.

I tried before. I blogged about a food place in Edinburgh before. Here

But then as you can see, quite fail la.

When the food arrives, the first thing in my mind is:

EAT.

Taking picture before eating is so disrespecting the famine africans.

Joking.

Anyway, due to my severe lack of idea to blog, turning to food might be my next best bet.

And moreover, I am so damn f***ing bored.

Everyday doing nothing at home.

So, I brought my mum, who has been unemployed since 55 years ago, to go around Penang to jalan jalan cari makan.

This would be the first to feature in this blog.

Toh Soon Cafe


Maybe because today was still holiday for some, it was quite busy.

The menu is simple. Roti with butter or kaya or both, any kind of beverages a normal kopitiam offers, and half boiled egg.


Just a small alley between the totally-white-elephant-failure-overly-nicely-decorated-Lebuh Campbell and Jalan something, google-lah yourself.

Ohya, I was told that this place is famous for Kopi O. and also Chief Minister LGE's coffee place. So if got children who failed to get JPA, come here and wait for him la.


I didnt order the half boiled egg, because of my profound medical knowledge of salmonella. (it has high geliness anyway).

SPOT the difference(s) between the two pictures below.


Yes. They are completely similar. I copy and paste. Thanks for participating.

Selamat Hari Raya

After 5 Hari Rayas away from the country, this is the first raya in 6 years which is a publicly declared holiday!

In terms of atmosphere, probably not as Meriah! as I was expected tho.

Macam, just another weekend.

Probably with a few more bangs of fireworks.

Anyhow and way,

SELAMAT

RAYA




Mercun launched!

Kebosanan Mendadak

AH!

Damn boring.

With severe lack of ideas to blog and also chronic nothing-to-do-ness, I dont think I can take this anymore.

I need a routine with income.

Trying to get a part time job, waitering seems so yesteryears, and sales job mostly wanted girls.

Well, but to honest if I am the boss I want to hire girls also la. Double happiness - working place become more happy for me, and customers tend to be happier usually, rather than a guy la.

Without realising, I have already been home for 3 weeks liau, and culturing and growing my stomach to the max. Gaining an inch liau in 3 weeks. OMG.

Argh, off to exercise.

Distraction

This picture has nothing to do with this entry.
Mai mai I tell you all a story.

Pada suatu hari

Ang dan rakan rakan bercadang untuk melawat Pulau Aman to try the Mee Udang.

Jadi dalam zaman alam siber yang penuh dgn informasi walaupun kita berada di koridor mamak dan bukan koridor raya multimdia.

Jadi kami pun google, guna IPAD kawan! hoho...i love ipad btw.

Ada beberapa blog yang memprovide informasi berkenaan dengan pulau aman.

Kami pun baca membaca jambatan ilmu...

TIBA TIBA!

Malang tidak berbau ketiak, kami termasuk satu blog yang bertajuk xxx (tidak boleh didedahkan disini takut nanti puan punya blog sedar! tapi linknya disini

Dalam blog tersbut, ada 20 lebih gambar.

18 gambar muka beliau.

1 gambar udang sikit. tetapi masih ada muka beliau.

Dan 1 lagi gambar langit.

--------------

akan tetapi, ironinya!

muka beliau agak boleh tahan,

jadi malam tersebut, kami lupa pasal pulau aman mi udang, dan hanya tengok blog puan punya.

Sekian.

Terima kasih.

-----------------

moral - janganlah anda taruh tajuk Pulau Aman mI udang etc etc, dengan tidak ada informasi yang relevan.

akan tetapi, hiburan tengok gambar-gambar anda agak best.

---

i really forgot the url of that blog liau.

Have a good week ahead ppl!

Military Tattoo


Every year I plan to get the edinburgh military tattoo ticket.

But as you know, the author has an allergy to queues.

However this year, one of his junior managed to get him a ticket!

To be very honest, I think this thing is not very extremely nice la. Not as some put it as YOU MUST SEE IT!

Come on.

Malaysia can do the same if we really want to. Find a good school band (like my penang free school one) and a group of Mat Rempit, we can do liau.

Watch on tv might be nicer.

Even with ticket also have to follow the queue and waited for 30minutes just to walk to our seats.

Overall it is a new experience la, but i wont recommend it to anyone.

Edinburgh Festival

I hate this place during this festival time leh.

Dont know where all these tourists come from. Must be belahan dedua.

Tesco food also can habis. Wth!

You cannot blame me for hating the festival leh.

I cannot understand fully the comedy show. If got subtitle maybe can la.

Then the musical.....hohoho...ang...musical? Doesnt rhyme at all.

Go kebab mahal also need to wait for ages. ARGH.

3 days to go before flying home.

Want to go shopping also malas. So many people on the street, lazy to push my way through the nicolson street.

Packing up

I remembered the very first flight I took in my life, about 5 years ago.

It was from Penang to KL, enroute London Heathrow, and then connect to Edinburgh.

...

I remembered I came with mixed feelings of uncertainty, pride and anxiety. And a full 20kg allowance of luggage of maggi mee, rice cooker, and I-cant-remember-what-else.

But as they say, time flies. It really does.

Now 5 years later, I am actually going the opposite way.

Back to place I am familiar with.

With much lighter luggage.

Free and Easy has always been my travelling slogan, and this time is no exception.

I am going to check in a bag with 2 pair of football boots, a football, a pair of football socks and a new pair of shin guards.

Only using around 10kg of my check in allowance.

I really got nothing to bring home leh...

However, i am shipping home a list of some really random things.

A helmet and a motorcyclist -very-gaya jacket.

A microwave.

A kettle.

A printer.

All the above are going back via sea route.

Above all, i am going home with a huge relief, that despite my despicable efforts and attitudes in my main business here aka study, i managed to go home with a degree.

Phewwwwwwwwww.


Like that also still handsome. extreme.

U havent seen Scottish Highlands until you'd been to Isle of Skye.

She






She still thinks that this world is flat.

She does not have much geographical sense of earth. and that, penang itself is a country. across the bridge is seberang perai. and then ipoh is another place. and then kuala lumpur is another state. just around the corner is Hadyai, and then Bangkok. China, Japan, England, America, Africa is the rest of the world then.

She thinks human is a balloon of skin and flesh and filled with blood.

She believes that the roundness of her son's stomach is very normal and it is weird to for her son to even slightly think of flatten it. "Where do you think you can put your intestines then", she charged.

She saw a tourist bitten by a bear during phototaking on TV, and advises that all animal should be treated with extreme caution as you never know when they will go amok. That include the swans and ducks in arthur seat.

She thinks hospital is a place of germs and that if we step in we would be infected immediately. Therefore her son has never been to hospital since after birth 25 years ago, until very recently when her son was studying medicine. Her son was not allowed to visit people in hospital due to that belief.

She does not understand the difference between English, Malay and Hokkien. She uses them interchangebly. She spoke hokkien to ahmad wafi zuhdi knowing that he is a malay. She asked her son why the stewardess does not understand Gu Ling, and gives her tea.

She does not differentiate cars according to makers. She thinks all small cars are kancils, and all big cars are big cars. Just different colours. She cannot recognise car brands. But she knows there are Yamaha, Honda, and others; motorbikes.

She can fry egg and cook rice. And that is all. and she thinks Milo is sort of kacang dewa like in Dragonball comic, thanks to endless advertising in Malaysia television.

She can sit down and watch football as long as she knows which side her eldest son is betting on. She is then more anxious than the manager of the team. Ahmad wafi zuhdi and flatmates are enormously entertained by her reactions.

She thinks her youngest son is very super handsome. Just some pimples or else would be perfect.

She has limitless imaginations and beliefs that go beyond this short list. My personal favourite recently;

She thinks there is only one aeroplane in the airport, waiting for you, like bus stop.

and because of her, there's one jpa guy who was 100% certain of going home since day 1 of applying jpa.
