Assalamualaikum and greetings beautiful and handsome people :)
Currently I'm at home, enjoying the remaining days of Chinese New Year holidays,
and I feel this holidays are more relaxing compared to my semester break holiday,
I do enjoy every second without thinking about my studies hoho.
Thought of doing histology tapi satu apa pun tak buat.
It's okay, tu la makna holiday. Cuti.
Semester 2 has begun last week and there's quite number of things yang dah belajar.
Especially Molecular Medicine.
Phewww I hope this semester I'll be able to manage my studies well.
It's been awhile since I thought of typing an entry about my life throughout the first semester,
but this leisure and happiness of holidays make me feel lazier by days,
and rasa sangat malas to do anything including nak blogging.
Hehehe. I even don't know how to start, from which point should I narrate?
Hmmmmm. With the orientation, I think.
I've posted about the offer I got, right?
So straight we go to the registration day.
It was September 19 and a sad day for me, because the farewell moment with my family didn't went well.
And Ibah was slightly sick on that particular day, and I was stuck with the orientation programme since I arrived late :(
So I couldn't wave them goodbye nicely sobsob.
It took me about 2 weeks to settle down my tears, but the homesickness has never disappeared.
I miss my home, my family everyday.
The orientation week was held for 3 days, from Wednesday (the registration day) to Friday.
Full of talks, a short walk around the campus and some other stuffs we've done which I couldn't recall right now.
And the most exciting event to be remembered, of course, the dinner event.
There's nothing much to tell actually.
And then we officially started our class the week after the orientation week.
Monday, Sept 24 rasanya. And the time flies so fast, we had our last class for JC1 on Dec 21st,
before having 2 weeks of Christmas break,
followed by one week of study week before we fought to die for our final examinations. Hohoho.
So, roughly, about the modules we've to learn during Junior Cycle 1 are:
Module 1 : Neuromuscular (NM)
Module 2 : Haemopoietic and Immune System (HIS)
Module 3 & 4 : Alimentary System (Double module) (AS)
Module 5 : Concept and Principles of Biomedicine (CPB)
Module 6 : Health, Behaviour and Society (HBS)
Basically, that's all of it.
Looks pretty simple but once you're here, you'll know how big and complex that simple look is actually.
In each module, things are mixed up,
anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology and blahblahblah.
Hehehehe. Kecuali module HBS, it's all about Psychology.
CPB is 75% about biochemistry and a bit of pharmacology.
Anddd, histology, is a subject which we have to learn it by ourselves.
Self-learning, ada final exam O.O
Awesome mehhh T___T
Oh, that card signing.
Okay, card signing adalah moment yang paling ditakuti I think, apart from examinations.
Card signing ni adalah sesi oral test (grades are recorded) tentang anatomi.
You'll be asked about anatomi yang ada inside your lecture notes.
You'll be sorted in groups, and the session will be held every two week,
bergilir2, I don't know how to describe but untuk one whole semester, this card signing akan ada 3 kali.
In front of your groupmates (and maybe the whole class), lecturer will ask you questions up to 3 minutes rasanya.
Part tanya depan ramai orang ni la buat aku lemah semangat. I don't like oral test :(
I'll always end screwed up like I learnt nothing :(
|Last lab class for JC1|
In PU we don't do dissection, so far.
Masuk lab and watch that anatomy video, after that, discuss with your groupmates and your lecturer.
Anything yang you rasa tak make sense or you don't understand, this is the moment to ask them.
And some of us are randomly picked to follow the English class.
Yeah you got that right, I'm one of the victim. LOL
My English, obviously isn't so good so I had to attend the class during last semester,
and apparently for this semester as well.
Some of us are lucky to be excluded from attending the class for this sem.
*greening with envy*
Satu je yang aku rasa berat nak attend the class, which is I get bored and sleepy damn easily,
and Ms Ann will notice that I'm sleepy (or worse, I'm sleeping),
because the class consists of only a few people T____T
Tak boleh tidur dalam kelas sobsob.
|Thanks Azwa for this photo, curik from facebook hoho. |
Ini some of us who were in the English class. Again this is the last day for JC1 ;)
Apa lagi nak diceritakan ya?
Test dengan exam tak nak cerita. I hate that part. Heeeee ;)
Oh ye, Perdana University (PU) ni takde kampus sendiri lagi jadi kami menumpang MARDI hoho.
Sihat hidup dalam kawasan MARDI ni, hijaaaauuu je penuh dengan pokok hiks.
Closer to nature gitteewww.
Aura gedik aku dah keluar nampaknya. Muehehe :3
Okay sebelum aku share gambar2 yang terkumpul sepanjang semester 1, nak cite sikit pasal PU ni.
Under PU, we got two different medical schools which are:
(1) Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine (PUGSOM), in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
(2) Perdana University - Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (PU-RCSI).
PUGSOM ni khas untuk mereka yang telahpun mempunyai ijazah,
I'm not so sure in what course but definitely bukan ijazah doktor perubatan la,
but then they still can be a doctor kalau take this course, for 4 years.
While PU-RCSI is an undergraduate medical degree programme.
Awesome meh this med school, aku suka, happy belajar kat PU :)
I don't know why, maybe sebab the people are awesome, but I really am thankful to be here.
Even though I really feel I did bad for my semester 1,
I still have 9 semesters left to make few changes to every single thing to be better,
insyaAllah, with His help, things will be better, slowly.
I don't know what to write anymore, idea kurang sobsob.
But if you're interested in joining us in PU and happened to come across this post,
and have something on your mind that you would like to know,
just ask me okay. I would be glad to help you guys :)
And oh, we got no official hostels jugak so far so PU provided us Cyber Height Villa,
which is a luxury place I think for students to live, habis mak oi separuh elaun JPA aku muehehe :3
I hope Mr Aru will find a nicer, less pricy place for us to accommodate next year.
Cyber Height ni sebenarnya okay je, aku je yang over cerewet :/
|Some pictures of Cyber Heights hohoho.|
Note that some pictures are taken from friends' facebooks,
I have no camera sobsob :'(
|In auditorium, waiting for class to start.|
|A pretty RED day if you noticed ;)|
|From Azwa's profile again.|
Masa ni we had lunch, specially cooked by Azwa, Rabi and Hana.
Sedap gila. Because during weekend tak ramai ada, kami pun buat la aktiviti sendiri.
Ashraf took this picture so yeah, obviously he's not in the picture.
|Ni Hana buat. SEDAPPP! :D|
|Ni Azwa buat. Pun SEDAPPP! Aku je yang tak pandai2 sampai hari ni :/|
|Ni baru sampai cyber from PU so a few of us decided to have our dinner at La Vida.|
All works and no eating make us zombies laaa. Haha.
|Thanks to Google.|
|Azwa, Rabi and Hana :D|
|Orang lain tekun tapi aku.....? :P|
|Us with Dr Uma and Ms Ann.|
|Us again with Dr Rohana and her cute lil daughter ;)|
If I feel like adding more, I'll update this post later okay.
And actually, the examination results for semester 1 will be announced tomorrow,
so, pray for our success okay.
I really am not hoping or aiming high, I just can hope I'll pass all modules.
Really. Pray for me guys. You know how bad I did for my prev sem.
Hanya mampu berharap tomorrow's result won't affect my current semester's perfomance and spirit.
Till then, take care guys! :)
PS : Sobbing, only 2 days left to enjoy my holidays T___T
