新家!


由于工作忙碌关系,我以好久都没写部落格了。就让读者们看看我的新家长什么样吧!家具当然没有pc家的有格调,但却很宽敞舒服。毕竟我还使学生嘛,没钱买家具。。。哈哈

还发现了加油很够吸力的ducted vaccum 与surveillance camera, 还有自动门的车房,又有sprinkler,真是不错!

我小小的房间,可是我却有两个衣橱!哈哈哈!

客厅(Ravind and Jian 将会买沙发,所以现在还是空空的。)

My studentship@MIMR

This will be the place where I spent most of my time during summer holiday.

I have met lots of lovely researchers here who has been helping me along the way. And I particularly love the fact the analogy' "Doing research is like baking. Just follow the recipe."

So far, I have re-learnt how to do PCR and electrophoresis. However, this time round I have more freedom to setup machines and things like that. I have used pippettes, homogeniser, centrifuge, PCR machine etc. My supervisor CK has also started me on RNA analysis.

I was also brought to the animal house on Monday to observe weighing and changing the feeds for the mice. In the coming weeks, I will be trained to handle mice and to perform dissections on them. Time to learn mouse anatomy! Hopefully, it won't be too different from human anatomy :)

There are a lot to learn and I will learn them all. I really enjoy my studentship very much. And the icing on the cake--I get some financial rewards for this.

Post-exam laziness

I am officially done with 3rd year MBBS!

However, there is too much activities post-exam.
I seriously don't know where to fit all of them in.

There's paintball, Malaysian gathering, PFE, shopping, meeting up with cousin. And of course, I am moving this Sunday!

Sounds like a fruitful week.LOL.

Don't know how much will get done though :p

Starting my research next Monday!

Funniest lecture notes!

After baffling my mind with various complications of blood transfusion, I saw this on the last slide.

Not sure how relevant it is to the content of the lecture. But having a good laugh is so essential during this stressful time.

Sorry, Yu Wan. I don't think this is a good way to pray too :p




The first slide of GN lecture says:

What is a human but an ingenious machine designed to turn, with "infinite artfulness, the red wine of Shiraz into urine.
--Isak Dinesen : -Seven Gothic Tales

*Laugh*

What if...

What if being cruel to others will definitely end your suffering?
Will you still do it?

What defines selfishness and what determines the need for oneself to stop being manipulated due to kindness?

Is altruism possible?

I am perturbed.

Sore arm!


I almost forgot how terrifying it is to receive an injection. After all, it was almost always me who has to jab someone else. Time to reflect on myself. I have probably horrified some patients :p




I have just received the free swine flu vaccine an hour ago. I remembered telling the nurse that the vaccine was of Fanta colour. Just to distract myself from feeling the needle. Surprisingly, it did not hurt as much as the annual FluVax.

I still have a sore arm now. So much so for my plan of going for a swim later :(
p.s. Maybe I can do breast stroke!(adapted from blonde jokes)

Christmas pies and tarts!

 We are having these lovely pies and tarts for tea time today!   Baked fresh and by order @reccapieshop with the tasty all butter crust.  Re...
