done...Had a whale of time painting the building..Just dunno why all of us were so excited when we knew we are going to paint..Jakun-ness i supposed. Very Fun...but not the part when my crocs stepped on the paint:P heart pain!!! But thank God, the paint is water based and could be washed right away, just a bit of stain seen though..phew!

kay kay..enuff of fun... studies wise....EXCELLENT!
Lily and I signed up to see post mortem! Quite daring of us.. It was my first time though, never seen any post mortem done throughout 2.5 years in IMU, as for Lily, she has seen once, so think it's quite okay for her.. Anyway, cut the long story short, we scrubbed ourselves into the mortuary, 2 bodies had been laid on the surgery table. A male and female. oh wait, according to the dr, post mortem means..Thorough studies of the body..:P coz cant find the cause of death basically!
Got ourselves ready with mask and gloves..the whole room was only Lily and me, 2 other nursing students, 2 assistants and 2 doctors and with tonnes of bodies in the fridge..Chill~~
Firstly, the doctor cut the body at the mid line. Right from the sternal angle to the suprapubic.we could see the layers of fats underneath the thin skin, then they tore the skin, thorax seen and by using the sawing machine, he cut the thorax off to remove all the internal organs! With lots of strength, all the organs are pulled out. The doctors then weighed each and every organs, slowly cut them into pieces and tried to locate the cause of death. Lucky for us cause not many students were there, so we basically have 1 to 4 ratio learning, which was really good. He explained one by one wat he could see from the organs and showed us. We could even touch the organs! the part that terrified me a little was when they saw open the skull, after peeling off the skin on the head...and removed the brains..AND THE BASE OF THE SKULL WAS EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE MODEL WE SAW IN MMS(IMU)..3 cheers for IMU...after all, post mortem was not as scary as u think it can be...but the smell is awful!! After that session, i almost vomited! Gosh, must trained up my stamina for this kinda smell..
in conclusion: The male patient died of peritonitis due to a perforation in the small intestine, whereas the female patient died of atheroma, and coincidental finding: she had a kidney tumor at the upper pole of her right kidney and SUPER enlarged liver, with greasy consistency!
educational session indeed:)
