Wrapping 2014 Up, I Guess.

Assalamualaikum, moga semua dalam jagaan Dia.
Here I am writing (em, typing) on my bed, it's Dec 30, one day till 2015.

Biggest and the most trending issue currently is that plane QZ8501 has been found,
with now 40 bodies has been discovered (at the time of writing).
Third plane tragedy of the year 2014, that killed our thought that the disastrous flood would mark up the end of 2014. Who would've thought that there'd be another plane tragedy after the missing MH370 and the crash of MH17? Who would've thought we'd grieve for this after losing many things in flood that hit Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Kedah, Perak, Perlis and Johor?
Which now has hit Negeri Sembilan if I'm not mistaken. 

A heartbreaking December, a fate that He wrote in order to signal us that nothing is impossible when He wants such thing to happen. To make us realize that we are THAT small that we don't even know what's the good behind these calamities. We can't even think of such reasons for us to endure these kinds of tests. But what we are taught to practise is, everything happens for a reason. That He only tests the ones He loves. That He gives His toughest soldiers the toughest tests. That in order to prove that if we are truly devoted to be His servants, we must endure these with the utmost patience and faith. To have faith in Him. To be patient with what He has prepared for us in the future. To accept the qadha'. To not question why things happened in way they happened. 

Moga Iman itu milik kita sampai akhir hayat. It's not a good year, but it's been nice in some ways.
From January, I was studying for my Junior Cycle 01 examinations. It was my second time going through the first semester of my first year in medical school. Not an easy thing to be done, it was tough, though I was doing it for the second time. The feeling was not the same as the first time. Well, I might want to elaborate on this in another post. In January as well, my neighbour passed away. She was a wife to a husband, she was a mother to 4 kids, 4 small kids who age from 7 to 20 years old. They were all younger than me. I cried every single time I thought of them even though I was not in Terengganu at that moment due to having exams. Around the same time, someone I know (we have blood relation) has been diagnosed with ear cancer. Around the same time, little sister to my late grandmother fell and couldn't stand up at that time (she's better nowadays, she can walk now). It was kinda sad experiencing these at the same time. 

Then in March, MH370 went missing. We, Malaysians were devastated, even the ones who have no relatives or families on board, we felt the loss. Up until today, it's still missing. Goosebumps.  In July, we faced another terrible news on the crash of MH17. Believe me, nobody has ever thought of that. Have a safe flight is no longer a simple phrase that's been wished just to send somebody off. It is really a sincere wish for the journey to be safe, from taking off, to landing safely.  I felt so afraid in the flight when I experienced fierce vibrations due to thick clouds and heavy rain. Terus teringat those crashes and everything, though my flight was only from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Terengganu; a less than one hour flight. But I couldn't help myself. Nobody is not afraid of dying. Well, at least I am afraid. Because I know I am not ready. What's sadder I don't know when will I be ready.
Anyhow, I can't really recall what else happened. But the recent flood was a very big hit to Malaysians. Especially to Kelantanese. It was very bad, the state looks like it's been hit by a tsunami. Cars were upside down, even the houses are no longer there. Just imagine the house you are living in IS NO LONGER THERE. The car you've been driving is upside down on the road with muds and all sorts of dirt. It really is not a nice scene. I myself cannot bear looking at the photos of the flood's aftermath.  
Then we received the news of AirAsia plane which took off from Surabaya went missing 2 days ago, updated today with the news of the debris has been found. 

Allahumma inni as aluka husnal khatimah: O Allah, I ask You for a good end to my life. Amin.

Plans, after all, will not follow as we conduct if He doesn't approve it.
Plan aku balik cuti sem nak membaca segala mak nenek buku yang on waiting list tak gerak2 pun lagi. Sempat habiskan DIAgnosis on the first few days of holidays then tak sempat nak start on new book lagi. Eh jap, sempat habiskan buku pasal menjahit je satu lagi. Plan nak menjahit tak boleh nak carry on lagi sebab something came up.
From the tiniest plan, it can't be done kalau Dia tak luluskan.
Anyway, sorry guys. Tak menyempat lagi nak edit blog. Sempat buat some heads up a week ago, tak sempat nak sambung lagi. Benda senang pun takleh nak settlekan.
To watch the flood, makes me feel so small, that I couldn't help thinking, 
that Allah itu sungguh Maha Besar dan Maha Agung. 
Fenomena new moon dan hujan nonstop at certain places for few days buat those certain places tenggelam ibarat sungai tak bertepian, sekaligus menjadikan it's the worst flood in Malaysia's history as long as I live (21 y is quite long lol). Banjir di Thailand dengan negara tersebut melepaskan air empangannya tak kurang memberi sedikit impak. Kecilkan manusia, dengan air pun kita tak mampu nak menang.

MH370, it's been months. QZ8501 has been found after two days. Doesn't this fact make you think, that dead bodies will float but if MH370 did crash in the sea, what has made the bodies not to float? No definite answer. Did it really crash in the sea? No definite answer.
Jawapan? Allah Yang Satu sahaja yang tahu.

Kuasa Dia, tiada tandingan. Kita siapa untuk mempersoalkan. Hanya hamba Dia. Dengan akal kurniaanNya kita berfikir. Fikir akan kekuasaan Dia, fikir betapa agungnya Dia, fikir kekuasaanNya di sebalik setiap suatu perkara yang berlaku, fikir akan keagunganNya di sebalik kejadian yang Dia ciptakan.

PS: Just to clarify, I'm not counting the hardships. Assalamualaikum.

It's Week 11! *insert panic emoji*

Week 11 out of 12 teaching weeks in total. Meaning that we're left with two weeks before finals.
We've received our final examination timetable. And our timetable is quite.....I shall say.....annoying sangat. Sobs.

We'll have our first paper on the 9th December and our last day of examination is on the 19th December 2014. That concludes our whole Junior Cycle 03 (first semester for our second year).
We literally have just 4 months for this third semester, including a week of study break and two weeks of final examination. Quite short isn't it?

MAHA's gonna be held starting this 20th November, lotsa preparations are being done right now, we can see lotsa people are going back and forth in front of our building, and I know it's gonna be even crazier when this event starts the day after tomorrow. As this event starts, we PU-RCSIans will not be here and we'll be let know where our classes will be held. But once again, we'll have 3 days of classes next week so there's really nothing big to be worried about, other than our approaching finals. *cryyyyyy*

Hey before I finish this post, here I wanna share some pictures of my friends and I during these few weeks back. (Worrying about the finals yet still went here and there on weekends wth la Sarah haha)

Okayyy, these were taken at Pantai Teluk Kemang, Port Dickson on the, em, lemme recall, 1st November 2014. A member of our Islamic Society had suggested us to go and have some fun at the beach during the weekend and thank God, this actually happened. But without the third year student because they were going to have their formative assessment the following week and without the super senior as well because they were all over the place (since they are already in their clinical year). 

Oh yeah, since PU-RCSI dah ada 4 batches,
it's quite comel because this is how we refer to our batches:
Super senior - fourth year students (cohort 2016),
senior - third year students (cohort 2017),
junior - second year students (cohort 2018),
super junior - first year student (cohort 2019).
Hahaha. I was like, "ha, super junior? SuJu?" Lol comel je siapa coined these terms haha

So the two pictures above were from the recent weekend, I followed my friends to Shah Alam. Azwa wanted to meet her friend who's studying at MSU. Kitorang pergi makan kat Roa by Jovian Mandagie, a Manadonese restaurant. Pedas gila makanan dia weiii hahaha asyik pegang tisu je makan hahahaha. Kedai cantik, deco dia thumbs up sangat. On the wall siap ada Manadonese dictionary lol ahaha a nice idea, kitorang go through juga those words sementara tunggu makanan sampai. Service dia bagus, tak lambat. There was no government tax nor service charge. Hehe

Hehehehehe, ni memang dalam wishlist, akhirnya dapat jugak pergi melantak kat sini and guess what, Blueberry Cheese Crepe diorang sedap sangaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat tak menyesal beli. Dap dap. 

I ordered Mocha Latte, quite pahit (usually mocha won't be as bitter as that) but maybe sebab rushing because after kitorang dah placed our order and bayar and everything, customers tiba2 je ramai. Haha. Worth a visit kalau korang ada masa and duit lebih nak makan lepak2 ngan member :)
So I think that was it, ada lagi gambar tapi tak edit lagi hahaha k nak balik rumah hahaha (nampak sangat bosan stayback PU). Tu lah orang stayback study, Si Sarah ni stayback semata nak download nota hahaha -_______-

Deepavali Break!


It's freaking week 7 now and it's over (because we're having break starting tomorrow until this Sunday) so basically yeah, week 7 has only one day. 
I'm just too lazy to do any academic work right now because I just finished my formatives and I kinda feel guilty if I do nothing so why not I blog before time gets jealous with me, right?
But really, I have absolutely no idea of what to write (okay actually my mom called me while I was writing this sentence) and that helps me to kill time because I am actually waiting for my housemates to finish their class. Lols

Okay then I think I should go and search for my housemates before they leave me :p

Life Lesson #2

In life, we always forget how blessed we are, actually.
We tend to forget how fortunate we are, actually.

We tend to whine every time we have to go through challenges and ordeals,
not realizing some people are actually suffering harder, even to breathe.

We tend to complain about petty and small things,
not realizing there are still many who are less fortunate than us.

We tend to grouse about life,
while some people are breathing their last.

O Lord, please forgive us and place us among the grateful ones.

Life Lesson #1

In life, bad things happen.
Either we want it or not.
Even if we try to avoid it.
We make mistakes. Everyone does.
We go off limits sometimes.
We forget the rules and cross the line.
We end up being lost, and having nobody but Him.
Everyone starts to look away.
Everyone starts to turn their backs on us.
Everyone loses their trusts in us.
Everyone gives that disgusting look.

Let’s not be sad.
Let’s not let them define us.
Let’s be stronger.
Let’s try another path and try harder to be better.

Because the only thing that matters is Him. Just try for the sake of Him.
And for the sake of your beloved ones.
Commiting mistakes is unavoidable. To fall is inevitable.
And it’s our choice to stand up and rise again. Or to just lay down and cry over the past.
Our past cannot be changed. The only thing that is changeable at the moment is your future.
Repent, and try to change for better.
Your past doesn’t define your future.
Do not let the ignorant society stop you from being better.
Do not let them hurt you.
Rise, and shine.

The Academia, South City Plaza.

Assalamualaikum and greeting folks ;)
How are you guys today? Kalau tak sihat mohon shut down laptop,
turn away from your phone and get some rest ekekeke.
Just kidding la, suka hati aku je halau orang en lols.

Today iolls nak cerita bout my previous house which I lived in for about 9 months kot,
The Academia, South City Plaza.

Since Universiti Perdana takde official hostel or asrama or whatever you call it,
diorang sediakan tempat juga lah to accommodate their students but rental rates dia ehem ehem la.
Hahahaha. Sebab sewa orang punya tempat en.

Like untuk academic year 2012/2013, we lived in Cyberheights Villa,
a very cosy and big house I would say with 3 rooms (unfortunately I got the smallest room *cry*),
and you need to pay RM840 per month for a single-sharing room,
RM420 for a twin-sharing room and RM280 for a triple-sharing room.
Your choice. As whole, sebuah rumah would cost you RM2400 per month lah.
Tapi ni betul rumah like rumah untuk one family gitu.

For 2013/2014, PU punya accommodation pindah pergi The Academia,
apartment punya style but kecik gila and ada lots of foreigners I tell ya,
lagi ramai daripada kat Cyber. Rumah dia kecik tu, rumah teres lagi besar.
Tak tipuuuuuuuuu.
But this time aku dengan my roommate dah tempah awal nak master bedroom,
so among the 3 rooms in one unit, bilik aku lah paling besar, with attached bathroom.
Tapi bilik paling besar dekat Academia ni adalah equivalent to bilik paling kecik dekat Cyberheights tu.

Untuk twin-sharing, we have to pay RM375 per month,
and kalau single occupancy, RM495 per month.

At Academia,
ada 3 rooms juga, which I would say sesuai for single occupancy je semua except for the master bedroom,
two bathrooms (one of them is attached to the master bedroom),
one dining area which is combined with the living hall,
one kitchen, em, actually, one smaaaalll kitchen area,
and one small room untuk letak washing machine kot (ala2 dry kitchen gitu).
But PU just provides us with one refrigerator,
one dining table, study table with plastic chair,
a single bed (with one pillow) and a cupboard for each student.
No stove, no washing machine.

Ini dapurnya. Acecey saja nak close up rak pinggan taktau apa motif haha.
Tu peti sejuk kecik ja. Cukuplah dengan taraf students hehe.
This is the small room, yang ala2 dry kitchen tu.
Disebabkan takde buat apa dekat sini we gathered up our luggage and stuffs here.
Sebab kitorang sidai baju kat living hall hehe
I know, I know. It looks messy, damn messy right. Forgive me those are my clothes,
sebab masa ni I haven't bought my ampaian so sidai kat besi curtain pun boleh laaaa.
Kejap je la kalau tak runtuh la benda tu ahahaha.
Basically this is the combined area of living hall and dining area.
You can see in this picture there's a dining table (bottom-leftright corner),
4 study tables (actually we have 5 altogether but one has been taken into the owner's room).
Other stuffs bawak or beli sendiri laaa. And that black chair pun beli sendiri.
They provide us with plastic chair je sobs.
As for me, takde waching machine is quite a hassle because I don't go home every week
so I cannot do my laundry at home. At academia, for people who are lazy to handwash their clothes,
at level 4, they have a laundry room (self-service) - where washing machines and dryer machines are provided.
Pay as you use - RM5 per wash (35 minutes - 7kg washing machine) and,
RM4 for drying(am not sure how many minutes, maybe 35 minutes as well).
So money drains like water yeah for lazy people like me, sebulan RM20 habis tang laundry je T_T

Here you go, your washing machine (right picture) and there's a coin changer machine too!
But it only accepts RM10, and it will give you 50 cents coins which are totaled up to RM9.50 only.
So everytime you change your RM10 to coins, you'll cost RM0.50 T____T
We do not cook (OBVIOUSLY HAHAHA), ala macam kat asrama lah right,
you don't cook as well (nak hilangkan rasa bersalah),
and so didn't I when I was studying foundation in UiTM,
mana ada dapuuuuuuur hahaha. Hari2 beli kat cafe provided in KKPR :3

Well at Academia, obviously lah tak de cafe,
hari2 makan luar kat kedai2 yang ada kat dalam and surrounding South City Plaza (SCP),
tak banyak choice, apa yang ada kau ngap je laahhh.
Kedai Indon, kedai Arab, kedai mamak, ada OldTown White Coffee, Subway,
MarryBrown, Uncle Jack (dalam Giant), em what else -.-
Oh ada KFC juga, dekat je, PappaRich, em what else haaa I've forgotten already meh.
Hahaha. Sorry I tak makan KFC bagai sebab tu lupa ehaks.
Merungut juga lah sebab tak banyak choice but to think again,
kalau duduk hostel IPTA pun kau melantak tempat sama juga,
haih manusia tak reti bersyukur betul T______T

Duit terbang lagi kat makanan, sekali makan mau habis seploh hengget baq ang.
Nangis lelaju. Pastu en, ada lah one time tu kunun2 nak jimat pastu nak eat healthily ah,
aku dinner salad every single night, kadang2 dinner oat. Wakaka.
Tapi kenyang dia tak sama cam makan nasi :(

I know, such a healthy dinner right hahaha.
Sedaaaaaaaaap sangaaaaaaaaat I LIKE THIS VERY MUCH  
Oh ye. Dalam SCP ada Giant, which is one of the things yang aku favour bila stay Academia,
wey ada Giant bawah rumah kot siapa je tak sukaaaa. Kau pakai je apa segala yang ada dalam almari,
turun pergi level 4, kat level 4 tukar naik lif lain yang boleh masuk straight away dalam SCP,
turun pergi level LG kot (HAHA LUPA), tadaaaa giant depan mata!
Takyah kena matahari pun kalau hujan pun masih boleh pergi ke giant tanpa membawa payung haha.
Habis instant mee boleh pergi giant. Susu habis, giant. Lapar cereals, giant.
Sayur2 semua boleh beli right away. Senangnyaaaaaaa.
Jalan kaki je takyah ada kereta. Sebab tu la aku suka Academia kot.
Despite the fact that duit habis RM375 sebulan plus RM50 bayar bas,
it's a place yang agak mudah and convenient for those who do not have their own transportations,
like me.

Duit ada semua boleh beliiiiii muahahaha ni semua pergi borong dekat giant bawah rumah sahaja.
Senangnya hidup kaaaaannn?

Nak outing pun agak senang. Jalan sikit pergi tunggu bas, naik rapidkl,
boleh pergi KTM Serdang tak sampai 5 minit. Nak pergi The Mines pun naik rapidkl.
Both places are less than 5 minutes away dan tambang bas pun seringgit je.
Dah dari KTM Serdang tu nak gi mana2 pun boleh kan.
Hari tu desperate gila aku malas nak susahkan makcik aku, nak beli tiket bas masa tu,
aku bantai pergi Hentian Putra naik KTM, semata nak gi beli tiket haha.
Nak pergi Putrajaya Sentral (kalau nak balik) pun senang,
naik KTM pergi TBS then tukar naik KLIA Transit pergi Putrajaya Sentral.
Tadaaaaaaaaaaa! One more thing yang aku suka bila stay Academia,
kau boleh outing tanpa mengharapkan kereta orang :)

Banyak jugak advantages yang kau dapat kalau stay Academia sebenarnya.
Yang tak best ada a few je.
Yang sangat obvious adalah, rumah/bilik kecik gila dan mahal.
Second bagi aku, takde mesin basuh dalam rumah.

Dan atas faktor rumah kecik dan mahal tu lah aku bakal berpindah masuk rumah sewa member aku untuk second year nanti,
sewa murah sikit but I'm gonna have to face a more challenging lifestyle after this.
Takde dah giant. Pergi balik kelas have to tumpang kawan. And makan, juga kena harap kat orang.
Benda aku paling takut, weekend.
Aku takut kalau tinggal sorang2 pastu aku takde transport nak keluar makan :'(
Aku takut tak cukup makanan kat rumah. So kenalah plan my food well so that boleh masak bila lapar.
Haha. Tapi nanti ada washing machine YAYY. HAHA.
Sorry la aku orang Terengganu, balik dua kali je satu sem.
Study week pun gua tak balik der. Ayah tak bagi sebab balik rumah tak studyyy HAHAHA.

Hi we have a pool but never once I went to bathe there ekeke. This is the view from my room :)
Another view from my room :)
Baiklah, sekian sahaja entri kali ini. Moga bermanfaat.
Em. Bermanfaat ke............. -_-
Well I bet it would be quite beneficial and useful for future students of Perdana University, right?
Do leave a comment if you have queries. I'd be glad to help you guys out!

Till next entry people, insyaAllah. Wassalam.

PS: I am so sorry I have no pictures of those 3 rooms at all T____T but you can google it up :)

PU-RCSI: First Year's Final Examinations 2013/2014

Assalamualaikum :)

Hai apa khabar semua hehe. Harapnya everything is fine for you guys.
Currently it's 2359, June 15 2014. Lagi seminit sebelum 16 Jun tiba.
Ada apa dengan 16 Jun ni yang sampai aku sanggup menulis?

RESULT SUMMATIVES JUNIOR CYCLE 2 2013/2014 okay boleh nangis sekarang.

Hahahaha. Sebenarnya aku bukan nak post about results.
Aku nak post about exam.

Sebabnya aku perasan aku agak struggle dengan sistem peperiksaan Perdana University,
or precisely, Perdana University - Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
Acecey, petik nama universiti sikit. Hahahaha.
Bagi glamour sikit sebab ramai sangat tak kenal hahahaha.
Maklumlah universiti baru, swasta pulak. Kampus tetap pun takde lagi.

Generally, tempat study aku is Universiti Perdana.
Dan program yang sedang aku ikuti adalah medicine under RCSI.
So singkatannya, PU-RCSI.
Kalau students yang buat postgrad med degree, diorang ni kitorang refer as PUGSOM,
atau nama penuhnya Perdana University - Graduate School of Medicine.

Under Universiti Perdana, ada a few programmes yang ditawarkan,
such as undergraduate medical degree, postgraduate medial degree,
yang masing2 akan mengambil batch keempat September 2014,
while ada few courses yang baru diperkenalkan this year, which are,
Degree in Occupational Therapy and apabenda tah hahahahaha.

Okay tetiba cerita pasal PU dah kenapa. By the way if aku sebut PU dalam blog aku,
most of the time aku maksudkan Perdana University okay, bukannya Pencetus Ummah.
Hehehehe. Tapi Pencetus Ummah tu best kan? Suka tengok :)

Oh ye. Disebabkan lepas SPM, aku went to do Foundation in Science di UiTM,
makanya aku dapat rasa sangat beza hidup di universiti awam dan universiti swasta.
Sementelah pula universiti swasta yang aku masuk ni agak baru,
makin ketara lah perbezaan mereka berdua. Especially in terms of campus life.
Namun in this post aku tak berminat nak cerita about what are the differences.
Kali ni aku nak cerita how the examinations are conducted.

Disebabkan aku mengikuti program under RCSI, maka cara exam semua ikut cara RCSI exam.
TERMASUK MASA PEPERIKSAAN. This means peperiksaan akhir semester atau ringkasnya, finals,
dijalankan serentak di ketiga2 cawangan RCSI (cawangan ke? -.-),
iaitu di Dublin, di Bahrain dan juga di Malaysia.

Aku rasa paling best students Bahrain kot.
Sebab diorang duduk di antara kedua2 negara ni in terms of timing/waktu.
Kalau exam di Ireland start pukul 7am, maka di Bahrain will be around 10am,
while in Malaysia, pukul 3pm. Gitteewwww.
Kau bayangkan haritu senior aku exam habis pukul 10 MALAM.
Aku yang fikir rasa stress. Takut pulak nanti giliran aku cemana la T_____T

Dulu masa previous first year aku, exam start pukul 4pm bag anggg.
Kalau paper 2 hours and 30 minutes pukul 6.30pm baru habis,
berkejaran pulak pergi surau nak solat Asar T___T
Dugaan dan challenges in studying bak kata orang.
Sabar je lah.

Lepas tu kan, kalau IPTA,
kita ada carry marks en? KITORANG TAKDEEEEEEEE T__T
Jujurnya aku suka sistem carrymarks sebab kau tak payah struggle sangat masa final.
Pastu sebab kau ada test untuk jana carrymarks,
so kau sebenarnya dah study awal2 sikit2 at last so masa finals tu agak ringan dah.
Tu bagi aku lah. Aku suka wei ada carrymarks. Nak lulus insyaAllah tak susah.

Sistem RCSI nih, takde carrymarks. Final adalah segala2nya T___T
Tapi through out the semester kitorang still ada test (mid-term) and,
kalau untuk anatomy (untuk first trisemester sahaja,
ada oral exam every two weeks - sums up to 3 oral tests only per semester) yang gila nervous walaupun 3-4 minit sahaja.
Okay tipu la takde carrymarks. Tapi test dan oral exam ni contribute sikit sangat okay.
Kalau kat IPTA carrymarks tu contribute dalam 40-60% dalam final grade kan?
(depending on the subject/course etc) but test kitorang contribute 2.5%-5% sahaja,
oral exam tu pun 2.5% sahaja.
Tapi study bagai nak gila untuk dapat fullmarks for that 2.5% tau,
sebab impression kalau fail test, kau boleh fail finals. Gitu.
Kecuali untuk certain modules, ada assignments,
so assignments to contribute about 20% gitu (aku lupa) untuk final grade for that module.

Oh medicine system RCSI jugak tak study according to subjects,
we learn guna sistem modul. Module-based, lagi interaktif mereka kata. Lol.
But untuk new intake (Sept 2014) dah guna sistem module baru so aku tak sure ah cane diorang nanti.
Apa sistem module tu?
Kiranya takde lah nak belajar satu-satu subjek biochemistry sebijik as a subject,
pharmacology sebijik as a subject, anatomy sebijik as a subject,
physiology sebijik as a subject, psychology sebijik as a subject,
immunolgy sebijik as a subject. Takde camtu.
Cara RCSI, dalam satu module,
kita amik contoh semester 1 ada modul Neuromuscular,
dalam modul Neuromuscular ada anatomy (lower limb),
ada physiology(pasal muscle, neurone etc),
ada pharmacology, ada embryology.
Biochemistry tak ingat ah ada ke tak. Haha.
Pastu amik another contoh, Alimentary System punya modul,
ada anatomy (abdomen, pelvic and perineum), ada biochemistry,
ada physiology, ada embryology, ada pharmacology etc.

Kiranya macam kau belajar Sains masa form 3,
dalam sains tingkatan 3 kan ada physics,
ada biology, ada chemistry. Haaaa gitu laaaa.

Pastu kan, bila exam...............................
Harunya. HAHAHAHA.
Part paling best bila exam ni tau tak,
sehari kitorang akan exam dua modules sekaligus T____T
So kau bayangkan exam sains dengan matematik in a day,
no, not in a day. Kalau in a day boleh jadi different time,
kitorang exam both modules at the same time.
Exam sejarah dengan bahasa arab pada masa yang sama.
The amount of materials that you need to cover is just enormous.
Gigantically enormous muahahahaha.
Lagi haru bila selalu je paper psikologi combined dengan paper biochemistry.
Gaya macam kau jawab sejarah dengan physics+chemistry sekaligus kahkahkah.

What's good, lepas habis paper,
kau dah habis exam dua modul.
Balik terbongkang tidur sebab penat cover dua modul untuk exam 2 jam.
So kiranya hari exam kau sikit je lah, cepat merdeka. 5 modul - exam 3 hari je.
Tambah sehari untuk anatomy practical.

Pastu apa yang lagi ''best'',
contohnya en,
module Cardiovascular and Respiratory (CVR) masa semester dua,
kitorang belajar in total 52 chapters.
Dalam finals,
ada 45 objective questions (multiple choice questions) MCQs,
and 6 short note questions (SNQs).
Perasaan bila chapter tu lagi banyak daripada soalan @.@
Macam module Genitourinary and Endocrine System (GE),
semester dua juga, ada 36 chapters in total.
Tapi masa final, ada 30 MCQs, sahaja yang membunuh dan mendera mental T____T
Tapi ada je ah module yang ada 20 chapters camtu je, bukan semua banyak2.
Kekekeke. Tapi tu modul psychology, lagi susah sebenarnya T____T

Aku ingat lagi semangat aku study chapter Shock (Chapter 31) and the rest, untuk GE.
Shock tak keluar langsung. Chapter 32 until 36 ada keluar 2 soalan je dalam MCQs.
Tak nak cakap apa dah.

Sebenarnya lama dah aku nak cerita pasal exam RCSI ni, ganas en. Wuwuwu.
Aku ingat lagi final exam FIS masa palam boleh study lepas sambil baring atas katil before paper biology,
relax je takyah nak sakit kepala. Yelah chapters tak banyak macam zaman degree.
Makin meningkat level kau makin susah lah belajar. Adatnya begitu.
Maka harus aja aku terima dan cuba survive.

Tambah2 aku ni jenis laid back tahap gigatera, pemalas tahap teranano.
Lagi la haru.
InsyaAllah semester tiga boleh pasang azam untuk lebih berdisiplin ye Sarah.
(Gelak baca azam sendiri)
Takpe. Boleh cuba. Ekekekeke.

Aku taktau apa harapan dekat results besok.
Ecey mestilah berharap agar lulus semua modul.
Kalau H1 semua lagi bagus. Tapi krik krik krik.

Whatever it is, this is my path. The path that He has put me in.
So I know, He will guide me through it.
This journey, is not an easy journey.
It's hard, and it's gonna be harder by year.
Whatever lies in my second year, in my third year,
in my fourth year and in my final year,
I have to bear in my mind that it's not gonna be easy.
it's not gonna be easier, it's gonna be harder each time.
Therefore, I have to be stronger.
I have to be mentally prepared.
I have to be physically prepared.

This is the journey that I have to go through before I can be a doctor,
before I can treat sick people, before I can treat whoever that needs me.
This is the journey that I have to go through before I am elegibile eligible to put my stethoscope on one's chest.
This is the journey that I have to go through before I can prescribe paracetamol 500mg to my patient who suffers fever.
This is the journey that I have to go through before I can decide on my next path, in the future.

Whatever I dream for, I have to continue to embark on this journey, to achieve my goal.

So yeah. That's all for today.
Hoping for the best, and expecting the worst.

May Allah bless.

Best wishes, and wassalamualaikum wbt.

PS: Yes you can expect more posts from me during my summer break of course.
I want to share more about things that I've been keeping to myself, these two years.
Just pray so that I pass everything then I'll be free to blogging more frequently :)

DIY: Tutorial GIF Image using Photoshop (Baby Steps)

Assalamualaikum :)
Aku rasa bersalah pulak, sebab dalam previous post I said that I would be posting another entry in another few days following that post but,
I still haven't got time to create that post. Sobs.
And there's a request from someone to show him how to do a GIF image using photoshop.
Frankly speaking I am not an expert in photoshop or creating GIF but I did learn creating GIF image using books that father borrowed for me from UniSZA's library.
I know, he's an awesome father rightttt hahaha.
And masa aku gila betul gila dengan photoshop dulu aku sanggup google pelbagai benda lah untuk belajar buat benda2 comel guna photoshop.
Aku pun tak ingat how did I get to know photoshop. LOL
Tapi aku dah jarang sangat layan photoshop sekarang, tak sempat :(
Sedih juga. Tapi biasanya aku akan create my own header guna photoshop.
Dan aku sempat juga buatkan kawan2 aku header blog diorang.
And edit benda2 yang aku rasa nak edit.
Ikut suka hati aku je lah.
Kiranya untuk isi spare time sebab aku suka jugak lah buat benda-benda macam ni.
Yang paling latest penggunaan serious aku dalam photoshop is when Zim mintak tolong aku buatkan poster untuk satu pertandingan ni,
sebab dia masuk another category. Aku macam ''Whattttt?" *terkejut dan takut*
Nak dijadikan rezeki poster rekaan aku tu dapat no 3 hahahaha k.
Syukur lah kan. Nak cakap cantik tak cantik pun.
Takde special papepun. Lol

So ceritanya sekarang budak ni nak mintak aku ajarkan dia buat GIF image.
Maka nya wujudlah post ni. Ihikhik. Kot2 sesiapa ada nak mencuba jugak en.
Aku rasa cara ni basic gila sesuai untuk beginner macam aku. Aku ni forever beginner okay.

Antara GIF yang aku buat sendiri:

Ni header blog kawan aku dulu.
Yes I know childish and kosong gila tapi aku rasa suka gila sebab ni antara hasil kerja aku sendiri
dan antara GIF pertama aku buat sendiri :3

Ni aku download mana ntah, edit bagi ''stop'' jadi gerak2.
Saja for the sake untuk buat contoh dalam post ni teeeheee.
Jom start!
Maka silalah bukak software photoshop anda ye :)

And jangan lupa choose Window > Animation,
supaya anda boleh view Animation panel kat bawah window photoshop tu.

So terpulang pada anda untuk create imej apa.
Tutorial ni aku nak buat GIF kat bawah ni:

So siapkan dulu komponen2 yang diperlukan.
Tangan yang nak bergerak dengan background image tu haruslah layers yang berlainan.
Sebab nanti kita nak control pergerakan tangan tu.

Klik link di bawah untuk download imej ''hand'' dan ''background''.

1) Layer hand: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kvj57530f059y07/hand.png

2) Layer background: https://www.dropbox.com/s/19jgum68ln9nagm/background.png

Step 1

Open layers/images yang dah didownload dalam photoshop anda.
Pastikan layer ''hand'' diletakkan di atas layer ''background''.
Dan tertera di Animation panel sekarang adalah first frame.

Rujuk gambar, kotak merah adalah di mana kita boleh klik untuk set masa kepada 0 saat,
0.1 saat ataupun ikut suka lah beberapa saat pun (kotak hitam) mengikut kesukaan kita dan
preference kita untuk GIF kita.
Imej dalam kotak biru pula untuk add new frame.
Manakala imej tong sampah dalam kotak kuning adalah untuk padam/buang/delete frame yang kita select.
Dan untuk frame 1, sila set layer ''hand'' as invisible.
Set masa untuk frame 1 kepada 0.2sec.

Step 2

Add frame kedua (untuk add frame, rujuk arahan di Step 1)
Tengok, dah keluar frame 2 hahaha (kotak purple)
Set kan layer ''hand'' kepada visible (rujuk kotak hijau).
Setelah layer hand is visible, klik pada imej dalam bintang hot pink.
Dan sila gerakkan layer ''hand'' sehingga hanya menampakkan bahagian kecil,
seperti yang tertera di dalam gambar.
Set kan masa frame kepada ''No delay''.
No delay ni bersamaan dengan 0 saat.
(PS: Jangan buat 0.1sec macam dalam gambar ye. Hehe.)

Step 3

Teruskan add frame baru dan gerakkan layer ''hand'' sedikit demi sedikit per frame.
Basically kita perlu repeat step 2 je :)
Repeat sikit2, reveal ''hand'' tu sikit2 sampai nampak ''tangan/hand'' tu sepenuhnya.

Note that kita boleh preview GIF kita, untuk preview,
klik button play dalam kotak kuning.

Dan bila dah nampak tangan tu sepenuhnya, kerja kita dah nak siap yay!
Tengok sekarang aku dah set semua frame kepada "0sec"/"no delay" [refer kotak maroon],
kecuali frame 50 tu aku set masa dia kepada 10 sec (rujuk anak panah).

Lepas tu, last one, refer kotak biru yang kecik,
klik button tu, dan choose menu ''Forever'' (seperti yang tertera dalam kotak biru besar).

Step 4

Now bila dah puas hati, bila dah tekan play tu nampak GIF tu dah cantik pergerakan dia semua,
boleh pilih menu File > Save for Web & Devices (Refer anak panah kuning)

Step 5

Sekarang keluar window untuk save GIF kita.
Pastikan anda pilih menu "GIF" di anak panah kuning.
Anda boleh testing GIF dengan menekan button play dalam pilihan di kotak biru.
Dan juga boleh preview di browser internet (rujuk kotak merah).
Untuk pilih previewing dalam browser pilihan anda,
boleh choose browser pilihan hati di dropdown menu (rujuk anak panah merah).

Setelah berpuas hati dengan GIF anda,
boleh proceed dengan klik button save (rujuk anak panah jingga).

Simpan GIF dengan nama file pilihan anda dan klik button save (rujuk kotak merah kat gambar atas ni).
Sekarang GIF dah siap!

Mudah kan?
Ini baby steps untuk create GIF yang simple.
Kalau GIF complex, you'll need hundred of frames to make it work nicely.
Dan kalau first trial tak jadi,
jangan putus asa. Teruskan mencuba! :)
Let me know kalau ada steps yang perlukan detailed explanation.
Basically dulu masa belajar buat GIF, ni je yang aku buat.
Adjust layers dan timing. Otak harus kreatif dan kamu haruslah sabar.
Preview haruslah beratus kali tanpa jemu. Hehe.
Selamat mencuba!

PS: Maafkan andai ada cacat di mana-mana, first time buat tutorial photoshop.
Ingat nak record window je tapi nanti lambat nak upload video :(

Is It Just Me?

Hola people, assalamualaikum.
So here I am, typing from a room in Perdana University okay please get what I'm trying to tell;
the new semester has begun! *CRY*

The semester break was just like a-day off. I need more HOLIDAYSSS.

And lots of things had happened, which I should write 'em in another post.
Maybe the next post following this one in few more days.

Right now I'm just using my spare time sementara tunggu Asar masuk,
and I don't really do studying or revision in the evening except during study weeks or,
when I have the mood. Additional point: today is the first day so I'm giving myself a short break before getting back to endless-medicine stuffs, head-cracking-assignments and blablabla.

So the first day went just fine, had 3 lectures today,
stuffs on anatomy, biochemistry and psychology.
Received my project case for the semester omg I feel sooooo burdened haha padahal baru first day lol.

Okay I really need to spill everything out so I guess you can expect another post here in few days time.
Right now I can't due to time constraint. Actually I've imagined every single thing that I wanted to write up but I was enjoying my hols to the maximum and now I got no internet at hostel because I've terminated my YES 4G broadband (but I'm on my way to buy a new prepaid internet plan). Oh I need internet for this semester because I have a crucial group project to be done (aceceyy semangat baru masuk semester trololol).
So yeah I know this is literally bombarding and babbling but I just can't help myself,
I have A LOOOOTT in my mindddd. Gotta go, dah 4.51pm, Allah memanggil :D

Final Exam

Assalamualaikum :)
Kemain skema kan tajuk. Haha. Okay actually I really should be packing up my stuffs right now,
but I'm blogging instead. A sudden urge to write, entahlah kenapa.
Esok bas pukul 9.30 pagi menuju ke Kajang, semoga perjalanan nanti baik-baik saja.
Orang lain semua dah nak merdeka aku baru nak start exam, sobsob.
Pressure pulak rasanya.
Roommate aku pun dah masuk semester baru tau next week.
Lagi lah pressure :/
Ceh time dia exam dulu kemain sedap je kau tidur Sarah. Tak pressure pulak dia?
Sekarang giliran kau la pulak. Haha.
Tahun ni PU-RCSI punya sistem lain sikit. Bukan PU je lah, RCSI Dublin sekali lah kan.
Student second and third year start exam bulan Disember hari tu. And third year student dah start semester 6 diorang Isnin lepas. Second year student bakal beranjak ke semester ke 4 tanggal 13 Januari depan. Dan tanggal 13 Januari tersebut merupakan first day final examination bagi budak2 first year, iaitu aku lah >_<
Cuak weh cuak. *Tepuk dada bisik all is well*
Haihhh. Haha gua cuakk T_____T

So kawan-kawan, pada yang sedang menghabiskan sisa-sisa paper yang ada,
I wish you guys the very best of luck and jugak all the best :)
Pada yang dah merdeka, tahniah atas freedom anda dan sila gunakan cuti dengan bermanfaat.
Dan pada yang baru selesai mid-sem break, selamat kembali menghadiri kelas, menyelesaikan assignments, menjawab test dan bersedia untuk final korang nanti. Hehe.
And rata-rata student SPM batch 2010 yang pursued diploma dulu sedang menjalani final semester (provided course korang 3 tahun), enjoy your final semester and be sure to rock it okay ;)

Maka aku rasa macam dah banyak cakap and aku pun kena kembali pada jalan yang benar ni,
kena kemas beg awal-awal nanti tertinggal nota susah pulak,
Terengganu dengan Seri Kembangan tu bukan dekat >_<
So here is it, 6 papers of final examination.
3 days of exam (sebab paper gabung: 2 paper dalam sehari).
And 1 hari viva.
Doakan kejayaan kita bersama tauuuu!

Ihiks cute nya jadual, kecik je. Haha. Doakan aku dapat turn awal untuk anatomy practical (viva) tu sebab lagi cepat habis lagi bagus, boleh study untuk consequent paper. Yang aku crossed out with black lines tu paper yang aku tak amik. Heeee aku dah amik Malaysian Studies punya final examination Disember hari tu. Macam Sejarah weii cuma beza dia belajar dalam English. Aku terkebelakang sikit kalau pasal Sejarah dan facts yang boring macam Perlembagaan Malaysia. Kerakyatan, Jus Soli bagai tu. Executive, Judiciary bla bla bla. Kemain aku menghafal semua dalam English, pasal YDPA lah, PM lah, lega rasa bila dah lepas. Hopefully cantik ah markah Malaysian Studies tu. Weeeee.
Tak sabar nak merdeka, tapi aku nak merdeka dengan bergaya
(baca: merdeka dengan perasaan happy sebab boleh jawab semua soalan, amin).
PS: May we'll meet again this 26th my dear Terengganu :*
PPS: Semester break aku kejap je. 26 Januari sampai 4 Februari je. Sobs. K serious aku kena pergi kemas beg sekarang.
