Exam... Exam... Exam...

Exam mode

Every time when THE EXAM is coming… Automatically there’ll be a massive change in our daily habits… There’s no exception in me…

When exam comes my bed sheet is always tegang…


Kononnye I want to avoid from sleeping lah… But the bed is still there… When my eye lids are heavy, I just slump my body on it…

When exam comes my packs of Milo are left untouched… Suddenly Nescafe becomes my

favourite

I’m highly stimulated by it… A sip can give me insomnia… Hahaha

When exam comes, I abandon my MP3

Because when I listen to it I’ll start singing and memorizing new lyrics… In which I do best…



When exam comes my desk becomes my best friend.

It is usually clean and neat… When exam comes…


then I’ll realize that actually there are a lot of papers to be read… I’ll pile them all on my desk… I’m quite consistent in studying but my pace is quite slow… But it’ll automatically accelerate when exam is just around the corner



When exam comes all my story books and magazine are also left untouched

There are always books on my bed… But now they are back at where they belong..

the book shelf…


When exam comes, suddenly this face of mine is a familiar face in the photocopy shop

Mane tak nye… Br la tegedik2 g copy the notes yg xde…



When exam comes.. I hibernate more than usual…

There’s a linear relationship between study and sleep…

A friend of mine said “ko kuat tido pon score gak”

Well… I’m honestly not a genius who sleep and score.


I studied around 3 topics and then sleep.. wake up to study and then sleep….I sleep right after I study.. It was just a coincidence that my friends only saw me sleeping… I was actually resting after my hard work!!!!

But some things will never change during exam…


My love for KUROSAKI ICHIGO…..


If there’s a new episode released, there’s no way that I’ll postponed watching it… Only 20 minutes ma…

My love to VOLLEYBALL

I’ll keep on training… Exercise makes me feel fresh and ecstatic for study at night

My long chat with dearest mummy


She just has a lot to talk about and I love to hear them… Spending hours on the phone with her is never a waste of time to me… She’s why I’m here.. She’s why I’m a future pharmacist


12 am is still my sleeping time


I still sleep early when my friends are up cramming.. I’ll wake up early if there are still stuffs to cover… I never study when I’m sleepy because to me it doesn’t suit me.. It’s a waste of my time and energy. I rather sleep and recharge…


Hopefully I score better this semester… My performance is declining and I need to improve…


STUDY FOR KNOWLEDGE NOT FOR EXAM…..

Some insights from me about my previous post...

Well… If we only look in one angle… Those cases would only reflect the health care professionals’ incompetence and negligence. But for my part it’s more than that…

The lesson from the first case.. Always seek for a second opinion… or even a third or fourth opinion..
Having something removed from your body is a BIG DEAL.. Your body will totally change.. You’ll experience changes that might be difficult to adapt to.. Don’t hesitate to do so… A single recommendation from a single doctor might not be the best. Other doctors may have other better solutions.





Like my lecturer said “IT’S YOUR BODY, DON’T SIMPLY GIVE IT TO YOUR DOCTOR FOR HIM TO SLAUGHTER. HE MIGHT BE WRONG”

My friend said “x rugi pape pon if you seek another opinion”

2ndly… We cannot simply blame the doctor if he misdiagnosed like in case two.. It is not easy to make diagnosis… The family might have not mentioned anything that is important to indicate that this boy is having fractured ribs.. so make sure to mention EVERYTHING that seems to be different after any accident etc. If the doctors or nurses still bemalas malas.. Keep on urging.. If they ignore you, go to another hospital like what I did when I had my femur fractured. The 1st hospital was so lazy and annoying.. They confirmed to me that a screw will be embedded. Luckily in PPUM, after thorough screening they found that the femur was stable and there’s no need to drill into my bone HAIYA!




In case 3… It was somewhat mysterious.. I just think it was his time to go.. According to my friend, everything seems to be normal that day.. The machine suddenly malfunctioned for a few minutes and then went back to normal…

Sometimes things are meant to be and we can’t escape from it no matter how much we try…




I really respect my friend’s decision to go to her doctor and discuss on what she’d found out. She did not reacted aggressively by simply filing a sue… We on the other hand advised her to at least ask the doctor to give her free PTH to compensate on the wrong medication that the doctor had given for a year after the surgery.

When you are really sure that the mishap is due to human error, there’s nothing wrong to stand up for your rights. Just make sure it is not to the extent of revenge or retaliation for your loss. May your effort to protect your rights benefit others too…

Death is definite… It will happen… When it happens, it means that it’s the time that Allah has decided for that person…

Something to think about...

Case 1..

A friend of mine was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She was sent for surgery almost immediately after the doctors discovered it. During surgery, the surgeon ‘grossly’ (dgn mata kasar) saw that the parathyroid glands were also infested with carcinomas. He decided to remove all four parathyroids upon seeing this… After the surgery, my friend was given Calcium and also vitamin D since the parathyroid function is to regulate calcium level in our blood.





During a pathology class regarding thyroid and parathyroid disease, our respected lecturer emphasize that after the removal of parathyroid gland, one must be prescribed with a parathyroid hormone replacement therapy. Unfortunately, my dear friend is currently NOT receiving this treatment at all. When she told our lecturer about her only taking Calcium, he was terribly surprised.





Logically, when parathyroid is removed nothing will control the Calcium level. In my friend’s case, by giving Calcium she is basically safe from hypocalcaemia (low Calcium in blood) but what about if there is high calcium in blood??? How can her body manage this without parathyroid hormone? So my lecturer advised her to go back to her doctor and mention about this.

One more thing, my lecturer was surprised to know that the surgeon decided to remove all the parathyroid glands upon ‘grossly’ seeing carcinoma where as actually one only confirm that by pathological analysis.. She was again asked to inquire this.

Case 2…

A boy fell from his bike… He went to the doctor and the doctor confirmed that he was fine… He continued to have difficulty I breathing and finally died a few days later… Autopsy revealed that the boy had broken ribs and damaged bile duct… The family decided to take legal action on this case…






Case 3…

A man was hospitalized and was supported with a ventilation machine. Suddenly, the machine malfunctioned and the man passed away. After his death, some personnel went to check the machine and they found it to be ‘TOTALLY OK’. The family members blamed the nurse in charge for the man’s death… She was accused to be negligence…



Huhu My opinion on this will be posted latter… Take time to ponder on these cases… Is there any one to blame???? Or is it merely Qada’ and Qadar???? Or do you have any idea to prevent these from happening??? Till then Lots of love from future Pharmacist….

Doctor Oh Doctor...

15 Oct 2008… 2 pm… From the schedule it was written there that there will be seminars on Pharmacy Practice III. I was one of the students who should do the presentation but I fell asleep…

I reached the class at 2.30 pm… A fat guy was standing at the podium.. “who is this guy??” I thought. I heard his cynical tone… Ya Allah… I made a mistake coming late that evening…

There were no seminars… The class was actually on legislative stuffs in medical field… How a pharmacist can face penalties and fines. Obviously this doctor put all the blame on our shoulder when there’s error… He’s a very proud and arrogant doctor that we feel like punching him on his face… These are among his statements…

When our class rep told him it’s supposed to be seminars…
“Your kulliyah yg panggil sy to come on this date and at this time to give you lecture on this… Don’t waste my time. I have so many other better things to do than give you lecture”

Doctor oh doctor… I know your life saving job is sooooooo virtuous but kan in the hadith our Prophet said… Ilmu yg bermanfaat adalah antare amalan yg berterusan…. Giving us what you know is ibadah as well… What you said hurt us very much….. Mcm x ikhlas jeeeeeee…..




“One day there won’t be any pharmacist. Your job will be done by machines and computers”

Machine and computers, no matter how sophisticated, how fast and how efficient they function, they will never ever replace human’s expertise. They are built to give convenience and not replace man power… Not to replace our intelligence. Brain has greater capacity than a computer…

Doctor oh doctor… This statement is sooooooo invalid and this is like we, pharmacist, are insignificant in the medical field that you want to terminate us… Hello…. We are supposed to work hand in hand… Integrate our expertise for the benefit of patients… It is in the mission and vision of the Ministry of Health kan….

When my friend questioned that the blame should not be put on pharmacist alone but the terrible hand writing of the doctors should also be blamed “The doctor should also realize that they need to work on their handwriting too..” she said

“Tulisan sy lg cantek dr tulisan awk”

Doctor oh doctor…. Dh takde jwpn lg best ke?????? We were expecting for a more professional answer…

Huhu Actually this is my first time ever to encounter such an arrogant lecturer… It is a norm actually for our lecturers who are actually medical doctors to look down a little bit on pharmacy students (except for medical doctors who specialized in pharmacology and is in the kulliyah of Pharmacy) but this fat guy is the WORST EVER….



Doctor oh doctor if you by any chance come across my blog and this post… I’m terribly sorry lah… But what I said is TRUE… All of us felt very insulted during the class… If you hate us so much and very prejudice about pharmacists’ working ethics why did you agree to give lecture and “waste your time” with us????

Kwn2 yg bakal menjadi doctor… JGN JD MACAM DIA…. PLEASE…

Doctor oh doctor… Jd la mcm padi…

Makin tunduk makin berisi…..

ILMU ITU PENTING!!!!!!

“The kakak in the nuclear department said we won’t actually use what we learn so we don’t have to be worried if we don’t score….”

“Our senior said what we learn is not used at all when working…”
Huhu I don’t like the statement “we won’t use what we learn…”


It’s maybe the awful truth but it makes the knowledge that we gain sounds not useful AT ALL…. That’s why I think I would rather have a say regarding this…


Well… Firstly, WHY do we go to school???
A. Sebab mak bapak antar
B. Sebab nk jd pandai
C. Tepakse pegi… sebab org laen pegi…
D. Aku nak majukan bangse aku…
E. ETC.


The answer to this question is variable. It depends on how we are brought up, who we mingle with, how we are conditioned throughout our growing process so we cannot actually hate those who would answer A and C. Maybe they have not yet realize the importance of knowledge… But they will when they see how hard they work to get small wages compared to those knowledgable people…

But what makes it dissapointing… the statement “we won’t use what we learn…” came from educated people. Who were blessed with good IQ’s who seems not to appreciate what they have got. And guess what was the impact on my friends.

“So then, we don’t have to worry much if we don’t score”


“Kalo x bace in detail pon xpe”


“X pyh blaja detail2, x pakai pon”


The statement became an evidence to give them excuse to study less

For my part… Whatever you do, KNOWLEDGE is very important. Scoring is indeed not the main point in the university… But we must make use of our time to gain as much as we could here. I notice that not all are excellent when they enter the university… Is it because they have reached their ultimate goal which is to ENROLL INTO A UNIVERSITY?????


I guess it is this mind setting that put us backwards “X PYH TAU DETAIL, X GUNE PON”… Kalo mcm tu… baek xyah masuk U, buang duit jer… Btol x???

Malay… Malay… We must realize… We are learning not to have a post anywhere.. but to make the country, our race and our religion move forward… When this statement comes out from our mouth, it’s the same thing as saying the knowledge is not important because we are not going to use it! We don’t see the REAL IMPORTANCE OF KNOWLEDGE…

Why are the Israeli is far ahead???? Because they put their knowledge into practice la.. That’s why they can dominate everything… Why can’t we beat their weapons… Because we don’t have better knowledge to create better ones..


It’s true that pointer is no longer everything… you have to develop communication skills, working skills and etc. but don’t ever regard the knowledge you gain in the university won’t be used and xpayah bc detail2. Maybe one day you will use…

There’s one trend in the Pharmacy community… They question why are their social status not as high as the doctors??? We learn as many as they did… We know more about drugs… blah..blah… And there goes… two pharmacists made the statements “xgune pon ape yg kite blaja”… Now… Kalo kite x blaja detail2, nnt org tibe2, out of the blue, tny kite can we give sound and reliable answers…? Bile kite x leh give our professional opinion, of course people will look down at us…. Huhuhu

Knowledge is precious… In whatever field… Brape simple pon your course… Never ever underestimate what u learnt… YOU KNOW WHAT SOMEONE ELSE MiGHT NOT… AND THEY MIGHT ASK…
