Makan garam

We played picture millionaire last night. After 2 days of shopping, we decided maybe its time to start earning some money back (kidding). So, while we were playing, the girls said I know quite a lot compared to them. (Wink wink). But then, their justification is, I am about 2 years older than them. So, they said 'you dah banyak makan garam dari ktorg'.
Lepas tu sume gelak guling2. Used kabi as my talian hayat for one of the questions and he got it wrong ! Haha.
P/S : now off to London to cause some more damage to my bank account ! :)

Good food

This year, we decided to do a small dinner in the house as the girls suggested we do secret santa..And we had our celebration the weekend before Meena went home for the holidays.. We (I mean mostly me) cooked chicken roast, lamb roast, roast potatoes with carrots and parsnips, yorkshire puddings and some vegetables.. 

And the next day, I made chicken chop :))

Roast potates, carrots and parsnips

p/s : My christmas break officially starts today after comm skills workshop and submitting my portfolio online !

Winter wonderland

This took place weeks ago.. But just decided to post it now since I'm quite free at the moment.. Just finished GP and submitted my portfolio :)

We went to GBK for dinner, and then walked in town to enjoy the lights before heading off to winter wonderland. We didn't skate but decided to go on the ride instead.. Did scream for the first 2 minutes but then enjoyed the breathtaking view of Cardiff after that..

Queen Street
Watching people skating. Very therapeutic

The ride itself.. It was freezing when we were at the top

Things that keep me going :)

Skyping with the kids have always been my favourite.. They are just adorable ! (sape tak puji anak sedara sendiri kan ??)

So, here are the few ones that I can't stop thinking about and always make me smile..

Adlina : Mak cik, nanti beli present eh ?
Me : Adlina nak ape ?
Adlina : Nak buku la. Teacher kata buku matematik.
Me : Ok, tgk la.. nanti mak cik beli.. Chocolate tak nak ?
Adlina : Tak yah la.. Tp, acu nak choc
Me : Amira ?
Adlina : Dia kecik lagi.. mana boleh mkn..
Me : Tp, mak cik blk bulan 4.. amira dah besar nanti..
Adlina : oooo.. dah one year ke ? Mak cik belajar nak jadi ape ?
Me : Doktor
Adlina : Adlina pun.. tp, tak belajar jauh2.. dekat shah alam je.. :))))))
Me : Ariff ?
Adlina : Dia jadi polis.. Amira jd teacher..

And there are just lots more that I would love to share here.. unfortunately, I'm so tired after a long day in surgery.. InsyaAllah will finish my GP placement soon.. Next week it is ! Alhamdulillah, not as bad as I expected.. But then, nanti mesti sedih sebab dah enjoy plak placement ni.. plus, by then end of this block, it means that I am a block away from FINALS !! argh !

A little bit on Monmouth

So, that is the main road that I usually take to the surgery... That's their high street ! quite small isn't it ?

There's quite a lot of stuff to talk about.. Fact of the day that I have learned today is, Monmouth is considered as one of the most posh town in the Wales or maybe UK ! hehe.. No wonder la.. The houses are big and nice... And org shopping makanan kat waitrose or marks and spencer ! Tu la kedai diaorg.. everyday, saya lunch makan food from these 2 shops ! kering poket kot !

Ok la.. need to get back to my portfolio.. dah buat all 5 compulsory LEAs and PLP.. But rasa nak buat satu extra just in case I need them.. :)

Wednesday, 30 November 2011

Seriously ?

I really need to update my blog.. and maybe take some pictures of Monmouth.. but I just couldn't be bothered.. I prefer to spend my time in the bed.. I don't know why.. Maybe I'm just lazy in general..

There's a lot to talk about.. but then, sometimes I just feel that maybe I shouldn't say it here.. Not many people will understand and they might say I'm being childish.. or whatever it is..

Overall, I am coping in Monmouth.. Taking it day by day.. Looking fwd to weekends all the time as I will be back in Cardiff then.. It's not as easy as some people might think it is.. but then, I am trying my best here..

Will update soon.. just got back from dinner..

Serak !

Lost my voice since yesterday.. due to cough and sore throat.. and dah la mmg suka berckp.. so, susah la sket skang.. but still berckp byk gak.. hehe

Wednesday, 16 November 2011


I'm down with cold yet AGAIN ! It's the 2nd time in 3 months.. this time around it started with horrible sore throat and temp every morning that resolves after taking paracetamol :(

So, there might be 2 causes : from Nana who has been ill for the past week or from the patients that I saw in GP. Hurm..

It makes me feel exhausted ! I just want to go back to Cardiff and sleep whenever I want.. Doing GP is not helping as I start at 8.30am and finishes at 6.30pm..

Hello HOME !

It's interesting how I am calling Cardiff as home now..

So, came back to Cardiff yesterday.. such a long journey.. took a bus from Monmouth for about an hour.. The road was quite bad.. so, felt a bit sick after the journey.. And then, walked from Newport bus station to the train station, took the train home..

It was good to be back to my small but comfy room.. and cooked nasi beriyani yesterday with chicken curry :))))

Will try and capture some pics of Monmouth and upload it here...

Wednesday, 9 November 2011


Alhamdulillah.. had a lovely Eid celebration in Cardiff.. InsyaAllah my last one in the UK. Can't wait to celebrate the next Eid with the familia... IA.. So, here's the pics from last Sunday.. Most of them are from Nana's amazing camera ! :)

Me and Ainol at CCC for solat raya

Outside our house with Nana

Outside the house.. Me, Meena and Ainol

At Jaja's makan2

Us trying to pose like Meena..

In Bute Park.. Walking to Riverside for more makan2..
So many more pics.. but then, didn't upload it on FB because they are all from Nana's cam and don't want to have doubles of everything.. Hopefully she will do it soon..

Alhamdulillah.. it was a great celebration.. murah rezeki coz byk org buat mkn2..

So, any pics from people in MSIA ? Esp the ones in Alor Setar and BBR !


Started MMIC placement last Monday after a week of lectures/workshops.. Arrived in Monmouth on Monday morning.. And then was taken to the GP's house at lunch time.. So, here's my room for the next 6 1/2 weeks.. not really full 6 1/2 weeks because will be going back to CF on most weekends !

Quite basic room.. no study table.. So, have to work on my bed.. and when I start working on the bed it basically means zzzzzzzz... Sharing the bathroom with the nanny.. 

Overall, I'm still feeling a bit odd... Staying with random family is quite difficult.. People can just easily say that I should just grow up and deal with it.. But it's a big thing for me.. Was basically in tears on Monday.. but things get better.. starting to get into a routine.. and have to compromise a lot.. hehe.. And because I'm quite shy to ask for anything, so, I don't have breakfasts.. Starting next week, I will buy cereal bars or something and keep it for breakfast.. 

Have dinner with the family.. but then, I just feel weird ! Don't know how to behave ect.. I don't know.. maybe I should just slap myself.. !

To be honest, this post can be very very very long.. but I might have to stop here.. will keep on updating it.. as I have no friends to talk to, so blog might be the next option..

Yes.. submitted my SCP on Friday night..

Now, it's REAL ! Finals in 4 months.. so, have to start revising properly.


Wednesday, 26 October 2011


I presented my SCP today..

Obviously I didn't win the prize. But, it was a good experience.

But I want think I want to stress here, the presentation was optional. I didn't want to do it in the first place but my tutor suggested that I should. However, some people out there should know that it took a lot of courage for people like us to do it in front of consultant and other students.

People like us here I meant by students studying abroad as English is not the first language. Because trying to present in English is quite hard and you can feel that you tongue was twisting when you tried to squeeze every single information into 10 minutes worth of presentation.

It's fine if you have to present in front of other fellow Malaysians as we would have had similar background. But it can be very intimidating when you have to speak in front of people who didn't even have to practise theirs speech.

I had to spend 2 days to kind of like memorize my text.. and Alhamdulillah it went well.. but then, answering questions were tough especially when people started to criticise your work..Or for me, my baby.. I have been treating my project like a baby I supposed.. :)

It's done now.. And will finalise my write up tomorrow... deadline is on Friday but I just want to submit it tomorrow and get it done with..

Cooking skills

Since I came to the UK, my cooking skill has improved tremendously.. not to mention other skills la obviously.. Alhamdulillah..

And since I moved into Malefant Street, the girls have been requesting lots of food.. Not only I can cook now, but can also cook for a big group..

Yesterday, a friend invited us to their potluck housewarming.. so, we decided to make ayam masak merah and nasi minyak.. waalllaaaaa ! A chicken and a half worth of ayam masak merah.. Now, I'm drooling for more.. Because obviously, tak de la pulun makan dekat rumah org.. hehe

The day before I made a whole periuk of kuey teow gorang for Lauren as she requested for it.. Haish.. I was really good during the week trying to have healthy diet... and exercise because I want to lose weight so badly.. Susah betul la nak kurus mcm ni.. :(

Now, they want nasi lemak !!!! Help me !

Will be seeing tutor this afternoon at 2 to go through the presentation.. maybe ask him if he's free to read the essay as a draft..

Then, I'm free until Wednesday (presentation day) :)

Women's tears :)

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told him.

"I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will."

Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?"

"All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could say.

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.

Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, "God, why do women cry so easily?"

God said, "When I made the woman she had to be special.

I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world,

yet gentle enough to give comfort.

I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.

I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.

I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.

I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.

I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.

And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed."

"You see my son," said God, "the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."

Random posts

From now on.. I have decided that I will copy and paste interesting posts that I found on facebook or online.. Something that either make my day.. or inspire me.. or boost my motivation.. :)

These articles are meant for myself.. as I will read them again when I need them the most.. When I am at the lowest point in my life...

Writing up..

Final phase...

Alhamdulillah, manage to get 25 people to try out my module.. So, it's writing up the report now..

Only 3500.. but still, nak botak kepala dah ni.. But then, kalau type blog ke ape ke, 3500 tu kejap je kot boleh.. Nak type project, terkial2.. But then, usually the hardest part is starting it.. Once u have started, it's way better than u expected.. haha...

Will have to try and finish my 1st draft by Wednesday.. and then prepare a 10 minutes presentation using powerpoint.. Did I say earlier that insyaAllah I will be taking part in the Child Health SCP prize competition. My tutor yang mcm beriya2 suro.. kalau ikut diri sendiri tak nak.. But then, dia ckp nothing to lose.. :(

So, now will have to prepare my slides (basically the report) for 10 mins presentation.. and then prepare myself to answer questions (5 minutes Q&A session).. Kalau menang, iA dpt 100 pounds.. muahaha.. but then, kalau kalah pun, at least dpt presentation skills..

Will be meeting my tutor on Thursday to go through the slides.. To practise it and stuff..

PLEASE PRAY FOR ME.. :) Presentation will be on Wednesday 26th Oct.. And then, have to submit the final write up on 28 Oct before 4pm..

A friend of mine said to me "You seem to have everything sorted now"

At the moment, my answer is Alhamdulillah.. Since I'm not applying for jobs in the UK, I have less thing to worry about.. Elective is sorted (just need to buy the flight tickets)... And project insyaAllah sorted as well.. so, the only thing that I need to focus on now is to PASS FINALS !!

InsyaAllah will be able to focus on revision after this.. Ameen...

Need to get back to the write up.. Ta ~

Next Step

Phew... Alhamdulillah the tricky part is over ! Now I am at the stage of recruiting volunteers...

And guess what, surprisingly, recruiting people to help out with your project is harder than you think it is.. Unless kalau diaorg dibayar utk spend their time take part in the study..

I e-mailed la both 5th and 4th years.. So, out of 600+ people, yang reply cuma 6 org je.. yg lain tu, I have to text my friends merayu mintak tlg.. how difficult is that ? So far baru dpt 10 org.. And I'm hoping a minimum number of 20 ke.. Tu pun susah.. :(

Hopefully can start the write up this weekend 

Wish me luck :)

So, dah penat membebel pasal project.. Skang nak la cte, apa la project yg dok buat ni.. :P

I'm creating a virtual patient/e-learning nye module for 4th year nye paeds syllabus..

And I finished drafting the patient together with the learning needs la... including notes, suggestions and guidelines sume..

We have 8 weeks for SCP, and i'm currently in the end of my 5th week.. patutnye, plan by next week, module tu dah siap and leh upload utk students lain guna and at the same time buat survey for my write up.. Tp, byk betul la halangan..

Mula2, tutor cuti 3 minggu.. lepas tu, when I was in the process nak buat draft, demam plak.. and then, last Wed dah siapkan 18 pages worth of draft, and e-mail kat tutor, dia plak tak reply2 smpai semlm.. and just found out the IT guy yg sepatutnye transfer my draft from word document into the programme yg ade tu, cuti plak smpai last Wed...

Hari rabu, jumpa la advisor lain (my personal tutor) and dia pun baca la draft tu and bg komen.. and edit sume blk, and e-mailed the latest version to my tutor/SV..

And this morning, ada sorang prof ni plak e-mail bg feedback.. tukar lagi.. and then, IT dept ckp diaorg sgt2 busy and maybe tak leh siapkan my module on time for me to get other students to use it and give feedback..

So, nak buat write up mcm mane ??? TELL ME PLEASE !!

Mmg stress sgt2.. and rasa nak nangis.. Skang ni draft patient dah siap, but in word document la..

Mmg panic la.. tiap2 malam tak leh tdo kot pikir project ni..

Somebody just drop the bomb today.. straight to my face !


Because IT department is very busy at the moment. And I only have 3 weeks left to get the module up and running, collect data/feedback. And finish my write up !

Student lock in

Went to my last ever student lock-in.. Why last ? Because I'm in my final year, so will insyaAllah student no more by October next year... and insyaAllah, I am going back home for good in July..

Summer in Oct.. Roath Park

I know I have uploaded the photos on FB.. But then those are the ones from my camera.. Here are some from Ali's camera.. (she has an amazing camera !)

While queueing for the ice cream !
My fav.. Mint choc chip !
The owner of the camera and me..
Autumn leaves
Mak datin (that's what they call me as) :P
Us.. Taken by a 'kacak' guy
Look at the sky.. SubhanAllah
Me and my yellow rose..
Now I know which camera I'm getting.. Ali's camera is a compact digi cam..I think it might be semi pro.. but the photos are amazing !!

I am still a girl and I would like to be able to carry my camera in my handbag.. so, i'm buying a compact camera... never ever will i buy a mahhusssive camera !

OK ! Start saving !


I'm not a loser.. just decided to put a ticker for my finals in my blog.. so that each time I view my blog, I'll know that I need to work harder !!

So, in 5 months time, I will be sitting for my finals.. Didn't realise it until I created my ticker.. Good eh ?

Please start praying for me !

No title

 I can find 1,724 742 things to do other than medicine.. Which includes :
  • Party organiser
  • Cleaner
  • Jual ice cream
  • Just entertain people everyday - cooking
  • Full time housewife - if I have a husband 
  • Librarian
  • Tukang jahit labuci
  • Baby sitter
  • and the list continues... includes jadi mak datin
But here I am.. still doing medicine... my housemates said "You have survived 4 years, another year won't kill u, and u'll be fine!"

I don't know.. but what I can say is that maybe the tolerance level has decreased since 4 years ago.. maybe the motivation is not as high anymore.. or maybe because I'm just homesick...

ARGH !!!!!

The day we decided to cook A LOT !

So, we finally organised our house warming.. And we cooked a lot.. Because we were expecting up to 50 guests.. Well, cardiff is definitely growing in terms of the number of Malaysians.. :)

Busy kitchen.. We wish we have a bigger one
Nasi ayam stuff
Chicken dumplings, kuih ketayap, popia
Left : Kek batik, bihun goreng, cornflakes madu
The two birthday girls.. Nana and Ainol with their ice cream cake
The homies - Nana, Meena, Ainol and me

So, we didn't actually invite everybody.. because if not it will definitely be bigger.. Alhamdulillah it went well.. But then, we wish we have a bigger house ! ;)

Conclusion of the day : Semua anak dara Malefant dah boleh kawen.. Masak mcm nak gle.. Definitely didn't get our beauty sleep last weekend.. As if we need any la kan sebab sume dah cantik.. hehe

Owh.. so what I made ? I made cornflakes madu, kek batik, ketayap and bihun goreng.. and the kicap for nasi ayam..

Project ;)

Geleng kepala sejuta kali..
Sepatutnya buat final year project.. Tapi project ni yang dibuat.. kemas tudung.. Serius byk gleeeee tudung... Sampai nak cr pun susah..

Tudung yang belum dikemas.. More than 50 I think..

Serabut tgk !

Konon dah siap la.. tapi tgk la berapa lama leh bertahan.. confirm tunggang langgang balik lepas ni... Kiri - tudung plan.. Kanan - tudung bercorak..

My main problem is that byk je tudung yang tak pakai and tak de matching baju pun.. but always rasa ada attitude "just in case" ! Kot2 la beli baju baru ker.. or anything like that.. nanti terkial nak cr tudung kan.. hehehe... 

Ok.. now back to my main project ! Trying to get a degree !!!!!!!!!

BBQ at Nina's

 Since we won't be seeing each other after this anymore, Nina decided to host an indoor BBQ at her home.. in Bristol..

What I did last summer ?

Not much.. but enough to say that I had a great time.. I'm thankful that I have such an amazing family.. I always spend my holidays with the family.. Simply because I usually spend about 10 months a year with friends.. So, SUMMER = FAMILY..
