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 !

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..

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 !

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 !
