Kushi Spice review

It's been so long since I wrote a blog post.
Life had been extremely hectic as a doctor but of course Ryan and I did not forget enjoy life as well.

Last Friday dinner was yummy northern Indian food at kushi spice star hill gallery KL.

Never had authentic Indian food for ages after we came back from Melbourne.

Dinner was complimentary of YTL membership. But look like at 9 dishes we had! It was nothing short of amazing. So scrumptious and hearty that we would not hesitate to go back again. Filling yet not oily. freshest ingredients. friendly waiters.

Easily the top Indian restaurant in town I would say. Unfortunately not many appreciate Indian food because there was only us in the restaurant during dinner. That's why I think it deserves some good reviews.

The portion was so big that they offered to take away the unfinished dishes.And we manage to feed another 3 growing teen-agers supper. Price wise, RM340 for two which is the standard of the place. But the taste and portion is worth it. And it's free for YTL members anyway. Let me know if you are interested to try out the place :)

Another milestone in life

I have neglected this blog for quite an extended period of time.

There is a lot that I want to talk about.

2011 is the end of my basic medical education. As a cohort, we have grown together, not just in medicine but also in life experience. Medicine is not just a career. Doctors do not just practice medicine as a job, but I would say it has already shaped our character and way of life. As a professional, there is a code of ethics to adhere to. I would like to quote one of my university professors, "Treat your patient kindly but never sleep with them."During our back to base week (last week of medical school when they try to cram everything sensible into our tiny brains), we were also taught the danger of social networking sites such as FaceBook. Hence, there goes "never 'friend' your patients". This opens a whole real realm about practising modern medicine. I hope I will not treat medicine as just a job. I want to remain passionate about medicine. Some time in the future, I would like to practise medicine around the globe. Speaking about combining work with leisure (i.e travelling) !

Much to my dismay, I have to leave Melbourne and come back to Malaysia for training as I am a scholar. It is just that I have grown so familiar to the comfortable way of life in Melbourne that deep down, I am petrified. Despite growing up in Malaysia, I found it foreign in many ways. Due to the extended period living overseas, I have lost touch with many family and friends, as well as the culture and standard of living back home. There have been a lot of misunderstanding and lack of trust in relationships that I cherish. And it has been a difficult time for me. In a way, I really miss life in Melbourne. I miss the camaraderie of my friends, especially my Australian friends whom I may not meet for the next decade or so. To my surprise, I managed to forge very close rapport with some of them. (I found it very daunting to approach them during my first year of stay in Melbourne due to cultural difference and lack of common interests and perhaps my lack of understanding in the Oz I also had to sell my first car (proudly a Toyota Corolla sedan) which I parted with much regret. I have tasted freedom, so maybe it is fair to go back to reality and face my fate.

I do not know what to expect from this new chapter in life.  There is a lot of uncertainties at the moment; the biggest one being job application. Even though the whole process has been streamlined, there is still much to improve in terms of red tape and collaboration between the various departments. I am contemplating about purchasing a new car. Gathering the advice from the experienced, I am probably going to get a Toyota Vios sedan. Being carless is just not compatible with Malaysian lifestyle because public transport is virtually non-existent. So, first loan in my life!

With great expectations come great responsibility :)

The lollipop lady

My favourite person to see every morning when I walked from my car to DDH.

I greet her every morning and occassionally she stops the cars for me.

She makes me smile :)

It's autumn again. Way too cold to go outdoor and have a run. So we have started to go to gym. Instead of getting on a treadmill, we joined a group program called fatburner. It's aerobic exercise. My first experience in doing that. I have always been quite an antisocial person though.ha. It was fun and got intense only at the end. And Ryan was the only guy in the class. I need to improve my coordination though.

Emergency rotation

I am a person who makes decisions about what I like quickly. I shop quickly too. And I think I have finally found the profession of my choice :D in ED

Amongst the things that I saw and did yesterday (I know it was public holiday but I had to do 4 shifts in a week):
1. Did an Electrical cardioversion for AF
2. Did 30+ stitches for a kid who fell onto a picket fence
3. A severely displaced and shortened NOF due to motorbike accident
4. Interviewed a dude who just decided to come to ED because the swelling in his feet refused to go down after cellulitis (and he came on Australia Day because he had nothing better to
5. Interviewed a dude with gout
6. A poor kid with hundreds and thousands of cactus thorns (is that how you name them?) on her hands and arms
7. A FOOSH (she has WPW syndrome too and I managed to get that right on an ECG!)
8. A kid with pharyngitis and abdo pain (?EBV)
9. A lady with multiple PE and breast ca
10. A young guy with migraine
11. An old lady with asthma and URTI
12. A slashed wrist (no suicide but cut by power tools)

And I think there were more patients that I have seen but have
Such is the variety of clinical presentations in ED.

The night with little sleep and lots of drama

Ryan and I took the midnight express train intending to travel from Kluang to Kuala Lipis. There were a couple of 'interesting' incidents.

A woman in her 60s was a chatterbox. Her seat was at the 2 o'clock direction from us. She had to repeat everything she said for at least 5 times. As much as I tried to block her voice out of my head, it was in vain. I only managed to shut my eyes when she stopped chatting which was a rare occasion. One of the funny things that she said was, " 火车没有停居峦啦,难怪酱快啦。它只是有停kluang一下啦!" For those who didn't get the joke, 居峦and kluang refers to the same place 0_o!! Her pronunciation was also off. For example, she kept referring 吉兰丹 as 吉林丹, 回去 as 飞去. 真令人啼笑皆非。

When the train drove through Kemayan, it stopped again in the middle of nowhere. Ryan and I was awoken to a half empty carriage. It then dawn upon us that an accident had happened. Most of the passengers were already alight, joining the growing crowd at the scene. There was a lot of speculations around it. The general consensus was that a car had skidded and plunged onto the railway tracks from the overhead bridge on 光明路。The train driver saw the white Proton car and braked. However, the car was still run over by the train and dragged along for about 100m. The passenger survived but the driver was killed. It took about 2 hours for them to rush the survivor to the nearest hospital and to tow the car away from the rail. It sounded as if there was a lot of excitement. But we were just stuck in the train and bored. haha.

So the estimated time of arrival was 3.30am. We reached Kuala Lipis at 6.10am. After a plate of spicy fried noodles, we headed home. I only managed to force my eyes open at 11am.

The poor car crushed beyond recognition
Mom was so worried when she heard about the eventful journey. But we could barely feel the impact. Lucky us. I could only feel fatigue :p
