I realized the shorter the entry, more people will engage to it and stay loyal until the last full stop. I’ll make it simple as possible but no guarantee.

So, a friend of mine from Twitter, replied to my tweet from last year when I asked what kind of story they want me to write here and she said “Tell us about your medical school journey”, and as a good, decent and responsible person, I have to write about it. What’s the point of asking if you’re not going to take in the advises and work on some?

Let’s go straight to the question: Why medicine?

I am ashamed of myself that I lose it! Can’t find it again.

I will put this up here: I am looking for a very old book, I forgot the author’s name but the book is called Cinderella Pantai Timur. If anyone has any idea where to find it, please leave a comment.

I owe you guys (and myself) one more post and this should be the third one, of January. It is part of my 2019 resolutions;- to write more, to publish at least three posts in a month. I am off to a good start. And I need to keep this pace for another 11 months. Which is pretty challenging, because it’s going to be busier by this mid year.

Yesterday, I found an activity book which I bought at Typo Australia two years ago and that book is called ‘Do You Ever Ask Yourself What If?’.

Months before planning this trip, it supposed to be a trip to Austria, to be specific Hallstatt, and Vienna, also Budapest. It was my initial planning actually. Then a month before, I said to my travel mate I am not joining her because I miscalculated my savings therefore a little bit under the budget. Basically, the plans were  buried and she had to find other person to plan the trip. But news came out from everyone that Ryanair had cheap flight to Krakow, Poland. Literally 99 dinar for return ticket!!!!! and that was the craziest deal I ever had in five years.

How Is My Final Year? Dreadful.

I’m sorry for not writing for a while. I need time to adapt to new environment (as I just moved into a new house) and new stressful classes and ward rounds (as I just entered final year last July). I am dedicated to write and share more, as that’s what I do best. Instead of writing a thread on twitter, I think it’s more appropriate to write here. Twitter is for nothing but rants, period.Read More »

Off to Istanbul


How do we start the day?

Not enough sleep. 

And it’s the holy month Ramadhan. The amount of tiredness, hunger and thirst are incomparable to other months. The threshold was reduced to a point so below that seeing a cat licking a puddle of dirty water on the streets, in broad daylight was so tempting. But I had my composure and went through the days which had been so difficult for me.

Our flight Pegasus Airline departed on 0355am from Amman Queen Alia International Airport, and was scheduled to arrive at Sabiha Gocken, at local time 0845am. I hate airport and I hate all the procedures involved. Make me less favour of flights and airplanes. 

I should make a post about airport, flights and things I hate about them. Hmmm.

Three days upon departure, it had them very rough. There were so many things to manage to the point I did not get enough sleep. And the stress added up every day. I had to move out from the house. So I have to pack everything and take all the boxes to my new house. At the same time, I  will travel home to Malaysia, the same day I finish my trip, so add to stress number two:

packing all the stuffs I have to take back to Malaysia.

And I still have to plan for the trip. Our itinerary wasn’t complete because of non-stop, around the clock final exams; 11 papers,  which I barely survived; but I did (All mercy from god). Which added to the stress number three:

completing a how-the-hell-I-should-do itinerary. 

But here I am waiting for the next connecting flight for Istanbul after dealing with people who do not even know how to line properly, making the process for passport control slower. Not to mention the officers here are not familiar with Malaysian passport, they had to make a call etc etc which resulted in our line being delayed. It was funny because his eyes couldn’t tell the similarities between picture of me on Passport vs me in real life, standing in front of him. Yes, because I wear spectacles in real life but you cannot wear one while taking a passport picture. 

It’s better that way rather than because I put on some weight on my cheeks and also my chin.

I was not impressed by Antalya Airport. Neither Sabiha Airport. It’s only normal for you to claim your baggage at checkpoints of your last flight, even if you have connecting flight before. But they separate international and domestic baggage claim. Mine was direct baggage transfer from Amman. It’s international but my last flight was domestic, from Antalya. 

I waited and no baggage of mine came out, I started to freak out. And then someone had to come and tell us that our baggages were at the international lounge. So yeah, I never knew how they operate. But everything went quite well and still in time I scheduled for each destinations. 

Turkey is lovely! It reminds me the feeling of Malaysia a little bit. The weather wasn’t too hot, perfectly humidified. Turkey is one of the country I’d die to visit, falls second from Japan. All the greens, trees, roads, modernised building and skyscrapers, good public transportation summarise Malaysia in a paragraph. The rest of the page is only completed by having families and loved ones by side. 

Perhaps, someday Japan will be within reach. And perhaps with my loved ones? Solo travel doesn’t sound so bad as well. Haha.

To be continued.
