Too busy to update!

I have finally found 10mins to update my dusty blog since forever!
While waiting for my centrifuge to stop..haha...so much for my holiday :p

So, I went around Melbourne and Sydney with Ryan and his family :)
It was fun and I got to re-visit some places which i hadn't explored enough.
There were simply too many photos to be sieved through and uploaded.
So, if you are interested, come visit me and I will show you the pictures :)

And I am back in the freezing lab.
And, believe me, I don't think I am cut out to be a researcher. Way too clumsy and absent-minded and COLD.

I want more holiday. The laid back me is struggling to wake up in the morning to work. And it's weird being called a 4th year medical student. Not used to it. And the dates. It's not 09 anymore.

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.

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)
