Back in Manchester..

phew...finally get to take some time off from work to update this bloggie of mine:)

So sorry to those mummies n daddies out there, concerning bout their lovely daughters in Manchester...hehe...the 3 gurls..settled in Manchester quite well..i think:P but har, no pics to prove so coz my dearest sistaS said they're not in GOOD CONDITION to take pics wor..too bad lar :) not me dun wan take ar...oh wells, no worries la, we're all grown up, we know how to take good care of far so goodie!

A bit of hectic-ness for Lily and myself la..coz we've been posted to Fairfield for our Family and Children module..a good 14 weeks, with accommodation provided but NO internet! The only way to get connected to the world is the computer room in library..which only allows very limited websites..NO blogs, NO Facebook, NO MSN, bc to emails!...PLUS the 2 hours bus journey with 3 interchanges to get there..TIRING kao. Not to forget, our GP was in the middle of the week, and was located far east from order to get there, we have to take bus, TRAIN, and TAXI...a way journey there cost us a BOMB and the uni is just gonna give us a pathetic 5 pounds bursary! not to forget, it took 2 hours to get there. We had to wake up at 5.30am so that we could arrive there by 8am! We're goin to travel like this for about 13 more weeks, and this first week had drenched us to the max...note: was on night call last Fri and also Sat...let me take a DEEP BREATH now...Thank God for the coming Monday bank hols for us to do our pbl which cover obs n gyn stuff! Yup, that's LOADS of work to do..Oh wells, that's medical school isnt it:) our sleepy faces, waking up at 530am to catch the train to Glossop for our GP day..exhausted!

the small lil room we were given in Fairfield

So far, Peads was GREAT, kids are just awesome creationS:) seeing them being sick in the ward was no good feeling at all, hearing them shrieking and crying made my heart sank...They dont deserve this pain :( They shud be happy jolly playing with their toys...ahh, this world is full of diseases n bugs n unhealthy stuff, that's y they need doctors kan:P kiddo oh kiddo..i wan to be a child again, without fear, worries n doubts...not knowing evil and the ugliness of this broken world.. that's impossible..just looking forward to go back to my perfect HOME in heaven, no cries, no pain, no sorrow..only joy n laughter! Just got to wait for Him to bring me Home..

a few updates b4 i came back Manchester. Last week in Malaysia, quite productive:) met up with friends and also spending time with my bro, lawyers are way toO busy man...sigh:) but it was a good and emo week! bye Malaysia..
Wendy and me @ Rakusen..jap buffet! Eat jap food kao kao KAO!
Thanks bro for taking me out despite ur busy schedule..hugS

Caryn oh blur Caryn..double date with so many peeps:P +Keat Seong n Julius:)
had dinner with Joyce @ Subang Parade. a GREAT sista in Christ. Thanks for all prayers n sharing. all the best in Melbourne k..u're gonna be fine FINE fine..doggie gonna survive..yay! took a train to MV to celebrate Lijun's belated 21st! i've always missed her big day..:( all the bestie dearie in Queensland k..kiT!

final family dinner b4 my bro left to US

the incredible TeoS:)

since i flew back by Emirates..i must continue praising Emirates...wakakkakak..this airline is just way tooOo Good to be true:) i have always enjoyed my flight..

wokay, my first leg to Dubai was not bad, left Malaysia at 2am. and me being the seafood lover was served with Salmon bun for supper plus choc mousse! Just b4 i touched down Dubai, breakkie was omelet with tuna and vege..quite nice..just wont go wrong if u choose seafood meal:) worth the $$!!
another reason of me loving Emirates:P i've been upgraded to Business Class because of the points i collected just after a few flights i have taken! GoooDie jolLie HappiE. My second part of the journey was by business least smth good after being so emo to leave my dear home.

me @ the business class lounge. VERY classy huh:) this is just part of the lounge, actually the whole place was really nice n comfy. My comp was low in batt that time, thanks to their computer room with internet assess..that's why i cud email u mommy:)
the free flow of coffee, assorted teas, juices, hot breakfast, muesli, FOOOD and see the tiny lil fridge..they're all Haagan Daaz ice all you want:P
just some lil things i tried coz i was too full after my first flight:) see the tiny bottle of honey they served..cute hor:)

Business class...1 word: PRIORITY!

need not queue to get in the plane, need not wait for ur luggage as it will come out first, get to bring more weights, get to eat more and better food, good services, got to use proper plates rather than those plastic trays, nicer washrooms n my favo was...more comfy pillow n thicker blanket:P

continental breakfast once u board the flight...fruits, assorted buns n LOW FAT yogurt:)
appetizer: Marinated prawns..BIG fresh prawns oh. see those tiny cute lil bottles of salt, pepper and olive oil..note: we all have napkins under our respective table b4 food was served:P

main dish:(this was what written on the menu)- mixed seafood platter with a medley of grilled salmon, poached sea bass and pan-fried lobster, with a creamy Pommery flavoured sauce, braised baby leek, roasted cherry tomato on the vine and sliced new potatoes with fresh dill. Hah...sounds good, tasted okay only larr:) and finally my dessert..Fruit platter..of coz there are cakes, pies and ice cream but i just cant sabo myself, indulging with those sinful sweets. way too much for my body to 'tahan' Go healthy lo..add on: they served assorted chocs from Godiva k..and also not simple tea or coffee, u have a varieties of chamomile, earl grey or even espresso, cappuccino or freshly brewed coffee..take that! PLUS comparing to economy class peanuts as snack, here they served assorted nuts incl pistachio, almond, Macedonia and cashew nuts..AWESOME, i love nuts!
and now everybody can fly Business Class..only with Emirates:) Honestly, i can be the spoke person for Emirates...come find me @ 077.....!! i am more than happy to be so^_^

anyway, that's bout my flight. nothing big to boast about, just to say Emirates is really a good airline:P ahh, enuff said, go give a try k! U sure will love it!

back to reality, enjoying my rotation in peads, just that i hate travelling!! One funny thing bout the peads team in Fairfield. Most of the consultants, Fy1, Fy2, SHO, registrars..are all NONE Brits..mostly 5 medical students..NONE whites as well..weirdo weirDo weirdO..Where are the orang putih weii...I'm in Great Britain, rmb:P

wasSup Doc: In God's garden of love, you are His forget-me-not.
This promise is good enough to sustain me through.

Gomo Kelate gomo...

'Kelate meme come:) '

1 week in Kelantan was GREAT! It's been a year since i went back and LOADS of changes seen.

the most apparent changes was that, there were SOSO many kopitiamS mushrooming the whole KB town. Guess those are the only hanging out places since there is no cinema around. And though the competition is so strong, they still could survive. PLUS, people like us, who went back KB for holidays, will go yum cha every night at different kopitiams:) the so called 'kopitiam crawl'..Muakakaka...

highlightS of my one week there!

First up: meeting up with my dearest jimuiS. Though Anne not around..sigh:(

my childhood friends..jimuiS! Syn*Shann*Kimmie*Angie
the 'jalan-jalan cari makan' outing with the gurls:) @ Kebun Sultan

wanted to eat kaojam..but the shop not open, so we went for ABC, uncle Bob n satay instead. Appetizer:P

introducing the chickie choppie!satay suria!:)not satisfied, we adjourned to Meena for light dinner:P we SHARED okay..!

and to cool down our throat after the curry feast, we headed for this roadside stall for herbal tea. PLUS a PAO is just so..wonderful:P

think it's because we've just got back from overseas, missing the Malaysian foods too much, so we've been non- stop munching n eating so that we won't regret when we return to the respective countries later on...!

good time of eating, good time of sharing, good time of getting fat together:P

the wonderful peeps i met @ KB:)

MUStaqim @ KB Mall..good seeing u bro at KB..guess u're back in Canada now. See ya in Dec:)

Beside spending some time with my family, i managed to meet up my dear friends toO:)
Not to forget, these are the people who have impacted my life and stood beside me through thick and thin. It's always good to see familiar faces again, updating each other and laughing out loud when recalled the stupid things we did together...:)

Wed was a gooOd day! Took Star-KTM to Klang!! a 3 hours journey...but for a good purpose:) WE FOUND Aunt Nellie!! Thank God for Michelle who managed to find out where she stays currently after moving out from the previous old folks home. If you guys rmb, Aunt Nellie is the woman with MS. Yup, visited her that very afternoon and surprised her. Brought her out for her favourite Pizza since her home serve mostly chinese food. It's really God's perfect plan how we contacted her, through a good friend of hers, who is also a goof friend of Michelle's mom! Only God will arrange such beautiful coincidence. ^_^

and Thu:: Kamal Bookstore visit:) another 1.5 hours Star lrt to Titiwangsa station and walk. Muakakkka...i am into walking mode. But not under the HOT Malaysia sun i know, hmm, wat to do, the fate of a noob driver:(

Hah! I went back Seremban just for the weekend, and my timing was good because Ly was there too!!Finally i met this gurl @ Seremban! Supposed to bring her berjalan-jalan in Jusco, but we ended up in a coffee shop and chit chat! and not to forget, our favourite pass-time::Groceries shopping! OF COZ when we spotted smth 'LOW FAT', we just have to pose with it..Typical us:P

Great seeing you again my dear...I really miss you la.

and i went for my dental check up yesterday...
one conclusion made:: dentist causes pain. me dun like!
i almost wanted to jump out from my seat when he was scalling my teeth!
now i understand why children dont like to visit dentist. :'(
Ouchie ouch!!!
i will make sure my teeth are at good shape so i wont have to visit dentist again!
and if you asked me wat my greatest craving is after coming back?Definitely is RED BEAN pao. Almost everyday i have to eat smth with red bean! Be it bread or pao..Just last week when i was in Seremban, my dad brought me around Seremban, just to look for my pao. After 3 different stalls, i found it!! i was SOoooO happy..even the gurl who sold the pao to me was kinda weird why i was smiling so happily when she handed the pao to me! Haha...Angie being Angie and her Hong Dou Pao:P Thanks to the paoS, my face also become round round bak pao face loo..

wasSup Doc:
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls for he has no one to help him up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

thank God for F.R.I.E.N.D.S
Please forgive me for not spending much time with all of you during this summer break. It's just too short..but Angie does rmb and appreciate you!
