Buffetting : 2nd Day

Goodness its already the 2nd day in med school.

Somehow, the enthusiasm is WAY below what I had in UPM.

Although I still do have the initiative inside me while doing and handling matters, geez I was even quoted as "the most responsible looking" dude around during the Transition camp, probably because of how old I look, things are just different now.

I don't know, everything around people when we set foot in Subang is,

If you are cool,
And judgment.

Very bad, I'm still doing the judging thing. Who am I to do that?

I should probably focus on my studies now instead of anything else. Sea of anatomy facts here I come!

What I need now is motivation. Geez I'm doing a course which I'm doing for the sake of it. What motivation will be my source?

Buffetting : The Frog Jumps in The Pond

Plop plop.

It was suppose to be a drinking game, though now it would be the bore killer for the Group J PBL group in my medicine pogram.

Hopefully I will have some answers after 12 weeks of 8-5 lecture everyday.

Buffeting : Random rants

Its 1 am in the midnight and I should totally hit the hay by now. No thanks to early driver duties and also orientation week.

Living through orientation with another bunch of strangers again, well I was pretty much more cautious and laid back compared to what I did back in UPM.P

Plus, in private institutions, most of the time its about $ over Energy. Most of the time.

2 Days before I stepped into Monash, there was this meet up with the 2ndary school acquaintances to celebrate one of their birthday.

Apparently, no matter which circle I live in, I live as a Boss.

Is it that I do really boss people around that obviously? Or it is true that I indeed attained more experience to know what's going on around easier?

When the B-word dropped in, I was totally unaware because I was never theirs at the first place. The only place I was the boss was in UPM, and now its nothing but history.

Boss material much? I hope so. Eying for a new hospital under my wings, but don't want to run it miserably. Maybe I can start a human-animal integrated hospital.

Dreams again~

Anyway, attend Combat class again today under the intermediate level(i think) and its good to see those familiar faces from the other days' classes.

What makes me wonder, was the puniness of the circle. You people know what I mean. Those who don't skip this part.

Facebooking a person's name up was so easy, and you can see all these mutual friends popping and Ah-Ha, you're the one.

But that proves that I'm not being focused enough in classes. Taking peeks and noticing others, just like what I did in the meditation retreat similarly reflects how easily distracted I can get.

When that I happens, I go talking to myself again.

You are here to work out. Nothing more, nothing less. Deal?

Whether or not you can mingle into the circle, or wish to mingle into them, let time play its part.

Do not be too ambitious, you've fallen once, learn from it.

I'm a worry wort I know. My failing record literally carved these phobias into me.

So once again, stay focused. Remember, no lovey dovey till 30.

You've got to work extra hard and take the solitary road if you wish to outshine others.



To be part of it or not, maybe when time comes, your body will react by instincts.

Gosh sometimes I just hate my life.

Buffetting : Course Mates V3

SO its official that I'm deferring a semester from UPM off my vet course. Meaning I will lose out one sem, or probably two from my fellow comrades I made from 2011. However, before I leave, I was given a task to express what I feel about my fellow cina coursemates heart to heart.

I've done a fair share on the guys and also for my 4 of the Ji Muis. Now it's for the REST of the Ji Muis.Link

Let's start with the ones who went for the same public speaking class for my 14 weeks in the first semester!

We have my beloved Sis, Money

Money came out first to be someone I wasn't really familiar with, probably because she was from another foundation. When I first met her I thought she was somewhat, distant. But time proved me wrong, she is indeed one of the far cry most genuine people around, just like Polar. This was further confirmed when she gave all her support during the Vet-Med dilemma.

Your words "你可以留的,看你要不要罢了," rang so loudly in my ears till today when I'm struggling. These words, were one of those which urged me to stay longer.

I have equal share of fun with her, through the kidnapping sessions with the other Bimbo in my CrV. Chat quite a lot with her, about her and Kid, how'd they go later on. Well, overall I see her as another sis who I can talk to about stuffs.

Next up, the other Bimbo.

Seriously, first thought was Bimbo, with that hair, strengthened my views. Throughout the 14 weeks, still Bimbo.

Haha just kidding, I liked your happy-go-luck spirit though. Carefree and just say everything out loud. Though your constant stare outs/stoning make you a real bimbo. Oops, I'd said it again.

We had a couple of chats, but we had really limited outings to know each other more. The basic views I have for you are probably , still a young girl exploring, need guidance here and there, and quite the flow-follower type. The thing is that you need to be a lil more alert, cause sometimes you'd really look like you are still half-asleep. Or is it that you were half-asleep all those times?

Petite, but you stand strong to your views. Good thing to see in girls. You'd have a good life ahead of you with strong faith. Just promise me, look out for Money okay? You should do find with DKo la~

That was the Public Speaking girls, next would be the Pyramid gang! Why? Cause they were the ones I sent to pyramid during Dogathon publicity period. Weird name, but oh well~

I think I shall start with Bursty.

Why bursty? Her eyes are FREAKING HUGE! Haha in a good way, but they are indeed huge. Compared to mine, I'm probably just a slit of 1 mm while hers are 3cm diameter! That's 30X difference.

She's the typical girl-next door, with a lil shyness around. Quite soft spoken even when she tried to be a lil more stern she still sounded very shaky. More like the "protection needed" type of girl, well at least to me. I have no problems talking to her, very comfortable. Very dependable, had a fun share of time dealing with you in Dogathon and Reptile presentation.Fun? Absolutely. Try to toughen up a lil kay!

Second in line would be Belle.

The first look I had in mine when I see her was quite the sub-urb girl. You know, not sure how is it going and explorer typo. When I first approached her was probably same as Bursty during Dogathon. That was pretty much a short interval, because we went separate ways after we reached there. You should come onto my car's ride more often for us to interact!

I can't really describe you much now because of the limited time I have with you, but I know you are very well associated with the words, 3 8.

PS: Did I mention how sleek your new haircut was? Keep up the business woman look girl! You'd shown confidence you never did once you had that haircut!

Who's the Expression Queen?

Haha her expressions totally beat all the girls in DVM1, big time.

I guess you'd probably had a hard time in the first week in UPM? Your face looked like the whole world is out to get you, or perhaps owe you tonnes and tonnes of bucks! Well, glad to know its over for you, for your face looked up brighter in the later days in UPM.

Perky and witsy, she is one funny girl also. She have her signature face, but I don't have them in my collection. We know how it looks like, and do we love it? Y-E-S!

Another regretful thing to do is to not have more time with her, but if I did, I'm sure we've had loads of crazy moment. We had tonnes of crazy moment even in the Winter Solstice night right?

Last but not least in the pyramid squadron, Boozey! Cause she's the best drinker, or probably addict among the girls! *whisper*do you know Big Sis can drink also?*end*

The first thought was, oh an elder one. Gotta pay some respect. But over the period you proofed to me that there's no such thing as age barrier, and you blended really well among us. You are as perky as Expression Queen, but with a lil control over yourself most of the time. However, when you pyramid squadron comes together, its like all hell break loose and the atmosphere is filled with 3 and 8 everywhere.


It's regretful that I wasn't THAT close with you girls, but I'm sure you girls make a great company to have fun with. After all, we have something in common. 3 and 8.

Apart from this squadron, we have another 5 more girls in our year. Although I wasn't really super close to them due to various reasons,I'd wish I have more time to spend with them. It's okay, I'm only gone for 6 months, I will be back, hopefully.

Let's start with Shanghai Bay.

That's the first thing I'd knew about you, thanks to Course night and the seniors. The first thought I had for you was studious, similar to that of Galah. With those extra time you guys spent discussing over Biochemistry and all even convinced me more you are in the same region of nerdiness of Galah. However, I was again wrong to judge and make assumptions.

Over the week of practical in Zoo Taiping, my views for you changed a lot. You are indeed full of surprises. Even more when you are DRUNK.

You have your "special" needs, no pain, no alcohol, no drink sharing. But its okay, it was kinda fun when we watch you and Boey heat up the place in the street food corner. You got me confused in the region to label you as matured, or somewhat childish? Or you are as versatile to go both ways at different times? You have your stands, but you do care for others. Thanks for the text about my inflammation the day after, I'm as healthy as a horse now!

Though I think you should work out a little more, you know just to keep your health and size in check. We all do.

Follow up, Falah. The female version of Galah.

Seriously when I saw you 2 together under the hut near the basketball court, I thought you 2 were somewhat cute together! Haha cause both of you are THAT tall and SLENDER.

Somewhat softspoken, but FIRM. I know that when I first talked to you. Salute you for that. I've also came across stories about you and the well-established *ahem* of you. Remember to put me in guest list if you ever put the ring on it. And for your in born maternal instincts. The homemade tang yuans you brought over that night was Y-U-M-BEH~~~ It was my first time taking tang yuans in freeze mode, but it was really good.

Talking with you was comfortable, and from presentations I can see that you are good with your stuffs. Confident with a slight tinge of warmth, I'm sure you will succeed well as a veterinarian, and as a person in whole.

Ugh had to steal this, cause I never took any picture with you girls!
Continue down the list, Rockie~

Some how that's the only thing I can put to represent her, cause she looks tough. And she is tough, avid basketball player I assume. Bet I couldn't even do a layout or dribble as good as hers.

She came into the residential college late because of various stuffs, and we missed out a lot even for course night because of some reasons. Later on we did do some catch up over chats and activities, but it was really minimal.

However, I did get a gist of how she is through these periods. As tough as she looks like, Rockie is surprisingly a very supple and warm person, constantly intact of others' feelings when she deals with them. Very matured when she speaks, Rockie does give this assurance aura and everything she handles should be A-ok. What we need is more time to know you more!

Who else? Did I mention we have a Dancing Queen in our gang?

An avid Latin dancer, well that was what we were introduced to, at lease for me, when I first approached her. When I first look at her I knew she was somewhat different form other girls. She have this extra "sense" which not other girls portrayed(probably because they hid it so well, or they perhaps have none). Sense being, if in lack of eloquence, intentions. I mean of course we all have intentions when we do something, but girl I've got to tell you this your intentions portrayed are way of the chart. They are quite obvious. There were series of events, and sometimes they are good ones, some who knows, but its all in your mind not mine so I'm no one to judge them. In the future, just try to keep those intentions less, obvious I guess? Haha what am I talking about exactly?

Other wise, DQ does make a good person to share experience with, chat sessions were fun with you around. Of course, a great team player too! Our team survived well because the girls were pulling it together hard, while the guys just do most of the labor work XD Pika-pow-er!

Last, but definitely not least, Ice Queen!

I pulled that off not because you are because probably its just a pun from your name. You know who you are icy!

Well, I didn't really have lotsa time with her though. Probably because we have different clicks, just like the ones up there. But hey, I did have a great time during the course night prep! It was long enough for me to know bits and parts of you.

Potential 2nd Big Sis quality I would say. I admire your calmness and serenity at critical times. For Big Sis, she would just explode and scream. So much for Big sis. It was the ride back to college from the Bangi hotel that I noticed that trait in you. Good going, that skill will bring you really far, especially when you have surgery or trauma cases in your vet life.

Another admirable trait would be great organizing skills. It's obvious that you are a leader quality, where your people from Asper to confide in you and lay their trust on you. Well, you do seemed dependable too.

A few chats over FB did pull us closer, and it is also very comfy to have a like chat with you. Totally lighten the burden during the finals period.

Stay put with what you have, but also try to mingle a lil bit more with the other girls! The Asper friends are truly treasure-able, but sometimes you might be of some help to the Cina girls also. You know how helpless they can get at times!

So that's it! Whew that was a FREAKING LOST POST. Probably the longest dedication post I have for people! I covered like 11 of you? Haha Oh well~

Last but not least, it's depressing to say that I'm officially a Monash MBBS student now.

But I'm not giving up my student ID in UPM yet.

Once a UPMer, always one.

You people have broaden my world, my sight and my life.

With you peeps, I've learned to grow up, stay bold, stay wise, and also stay focused.

I've also learned that at times, we need to get in touch with our alter crazy ego, and go berserk with food and fun.

Buffetting : Zoo Taiping Practical Day 1

Whew, finally I have the time to do this! Yes, I went to Zoo Taiping last whole week for my university course under Non-Domesticated Animal Practical.

So it was zoo then!

I finally kicked into the "father" in me, assuming the role as the 3.5 hours driver duty from Subang Jaya all the way to Taiping, with a stop in Ipoh back and forth of course.

It wasn't THAT bad, if you have a good night sleep the night before. It was a huge burden, as I was holding at least 4 lives of other people's children in my hands, literally.

One steer and down to the crevice we go.

Lucky that didn't happen. So we started our practical 1 day after we reached Taiping, cause it was like 7pm when we reached.


We were late! Thanks to me, I couldn't get my way from the rest house to the zoo. We used Boey's GPS to trail us there, as as the name suggested "Guna-Pon-Sesat" we were at least 20 minutes late to report to the veterinary officer.

So it was Dr Choy, and he explained what our daily morning routine was.

After gearing up with our coveralls, we went into action

We have to clean up the cages of all the animals residing in the hospital, which we had:

1-Rabbit A, which had mastitis
2-Rabbit B, which had skin infection on its mussel.
3-Slowloris, which had leg injury
4-Mousedeer,which had skin infection on its right hind leg
5- Bamboo deer, which I had no idea what's going with it because I didn't deal with it at all.

Since it was our first day there, we had a lil trouble with timing and speed in cleaning up, plus we are so novel to the animals so we took quite a while.

Later on, Dr Choy went on rotation around to check on the wildcaptive animals which were reported with infection or anomalies with his tools.

The first case:
We went to the tapir because she had something on her eyes. Dr Choy had to give her some eye ointment to cleans it. Oh dang she was so cute!!

The second case:
We proceeded to the camels because these lovey doveys had some skin infection too. There were black pigments and spots on both male and female. We used the anti-fly spray for veterinary use to prevent the flies from going near those wounds, or its going to be maggots' day.

We had to spray both sides of the body, so I volunteered to climb between the cages for the other side's medication. Quite an experience haha, it is really fun and outgoing to work as a vet in a zoo.

Another thing I learned was male camels salivate more than female ones; like human according to Dr Choy. WTHECK.

The third case:
We went back to the hospital when a pregnant cat got admitted. She was the cat of one of the zoo keepers but she couldn't deliver the babies even after gestation period. The fetuses were in the womb for 3 days, and have most likely died. According to Dr Choy, upon amniotic sack bursting, the babies need to be removed from the womb or the they will die of malnutrition and suffocation. We performed a c-section after we intubated and anesthetized her. It wasn't a clear surgery, but we did performed a lot.

Someone checked the air way.
Someone checked the isoflurene gas.
Someone checked the saline.
Someone checked the BP and HR.

I don't think I should bore you with the scientific terms though, there were 3 clamp methods, long star retractor, radiowave pierce and coagulator.

Note to self, when animals feel pain, their BP and HR increase.

Overall, the surgery was a success, the babies were all dead, all 4 of them, but the mother survived, though she only woke up like hours later from recovery. Very weak and not moving today.

The fourth case:
We went DARTING!!!
Because the Hog Deers(Rusa Ubi) and Seros(Kambing Gurun) had records and history of parasites and tractworm respectively we had to vaccinate them. Of course wild animals wouldn't allow you to go near them with a needle to jab, they RUN. So, we darted them, or at least Dr Choy darted them. I helped out with filling the darts with he vaccines. Felt so medical-affliated.

Note to self, tractworm is transmittable via milk.

We had a session of dart mechanism with Dr Choy, the design, and how to homemake one.

Overall, that was the first day!

PS: Thank you Dr Choy for the duck rice lunch! It was really good! It will be our turn to treat you next time!

I know there's no pictures, but blogger and streamyx is being bitches and I couldn't upload them in good shapes. At least I got words.

Buffetting : Body Combat!

Rejoined Gorden with his body combat class again today after 4 months hiatus.

Of course the crowd doesn't remember me, I've only been there ONCE.

Anyway, I hope this routine can go on cause the class rocked.

At least I don't feel as hostile.

Yay Body Combat!

I know I've not updated on the Zoo Taiping Practical yet, but gimme some time. It's going to be up soon, and I better get it done before Monash starts.

PS: Another argument over vet doesn't earn as much as physician/surgeon bla bla bla.

My life, or yours? Or you just have the insecurity that I wouldn't be able to earn and feed you?
I'm renouncing anyway, the money I'd earn might as well fund the facilities.

Buffetting : It's Official

That I'm now a Monash Sunway Campus MBBS student.




I guess I need to treat it with open heart?

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Buffetting : 14-02-12=0??!!

Oh well, its the stupid 9gag crap people spread around in FB these days. BTW, 9gag is an official CORRECT term in blogger! They don't even correct it now!

Anyways, I finally got back to body pump! What's worse, my left arm totally got whacked off by bench press and tricep curls in the studio!

What an embarrassing day in class! Oh well, it has be FOUR months, so what'd you expect?

Later on I was walking around Pyramid to get stuffs for my dogs and the family, and the weirdest part is:

There's couple EVERYWHERE.

It's like the number magnified by 1000X than normal Tuesdays.

Or is it that I've been gone from Subang for far too long?

Or is it that everyone's desperate to have someone to hold on to on the Big V?

One thing's for sure, my parents ain't too free for V days. Not before, not today.

Oh well~ (this has been my theme lately)

I don't see myself holding hands with anyone yet, so I'm practically immune to the sight.

Sometimes its so weird, because I'd just stand back and watch people and keep telling myself I'm pretty much over with lovey dovey.

Signs of being a monk? Who knows.

Instead of love, I'm much more clung to FRIENDSHIP.

Sometimes I'm just so surprised on how I get over friendship so easily.

The secondary mates who once I claimed I "loved" most are now nothing but acquaintances. It's so crude to the point that, I wouldn't bother keeping some of their phone numbers, or be bothered of their lives.

Of course, I do have some utmost close monkeys loathing around me, perhaps those who really lived my life with me all the way.

The others, were and now are, just someone I knew. I wouldn't be surprised or care if they'd not invite me over parties or whatsoever.

Pretty cold aren't I? I was amazed by my solitary stand when I'd actually noticed this.

I guess I move on pretty fast, my life was tough enough for me to do that easily.

My closest buddy told me this once;

If you do not wish to have that someone in your life anymore, just let the person go. It's no one's fault. It's just that you don't want to commit pointlessly anymore--- J.R. Lam, 2011.

So, now I'd only keep those I wish to have them in my life. The others are pretty much redundant.

As for Form 6 level, I'd managed to make a few good ones, and another bunch was pretty much passersby of my life. Whether or not if we knew, things didn't nor wouldn't change for me.

Sadly, when it came to university level, I have had this attachment, so strong I'd promised my coursemates that their children are so going to be my god-children.

Guess living under the same roof with people really allow us to know them well, even more to love them.

However I hate my family more as I live under the same rood with them.

Argh, now I'm off topic.

Valentines, well not till I'm 30. So now big V is for me myself or friends only.

Probably I'll just sip wine off the night with some close friends before 30.

Zoo Taiping Practicals coming up!

Buffetting : Post CNY Mortem

Almost everyone I knew asked me how was my CNY.

Honestly, it sucked to the max.

I had never been through these phases in my life, and I have no idea how the hell I brought this grace upon myself.

Torn between my life long career and living, I was literally suffocating every night to sort this out.

Even till this very moment, I'm struggling.

When I watched dramas and see how the medical officers(actors but wth) dealt with issues, I tend to react subconsciously to answer, or perhaps to give MO as my life as a second thought.

However, reality bites in after 5 minutes of drama-dream when I recalled of how the existing real life doctors warned about the un-glamorous part of an MO's life. And that was when I doubt.

Yet, I still do not wish to give up my once in a life time chance to pick up vet as my life career. I was amazed on the amount of knowledge I was able to deliver to people when it comes to issues dealing with animals thanks to the exposure I have in UPM.

Livestocks, animal rights and welfare, disease diagnosis, epidemiology; even after the 1st semester I was able to enlighten so many people around me with sheer knowledge, what more when I'm in my 5th?

Medical officers are such in abundant, and with laymen equipping themselves with adequate medical knowledge, MO's at a certain degree of healthcare is disposable. Unless when it comes to non-superficial issues like surgeries or chemo, specialists come in play.

There are so many still living in their shells of ignorance, especially towards what is going on with animals and wildlife out there. I see this as an exciting part of nature, and if I were able to radiate this knowledge to the people, the public, even one person at all in my life, I feel that I have made a change for the world, and that is the true meaning of life.

Of course, money comes in, after I have had enough exposures.

Nevertheless, this CNY was truly a tormenting period, tearing my head apart.

The decision's been made, hopefully I will be allowed to differ my semester in UPM.

That was about studies, back to activities:

My Japanese language teacher got MARRIED! to a LOCAL Malay, who is a GOLFER.

Can you imagine how blind can love get?

She was like, half witted English; and he have had no Japanese basic, and he was her Golf INSTRUCTOR.

Talk about professional overboard.

Anyway, she looked really happy in the wedding, and she is a very nice lady. Hopefully this lad will be able to bring happiness to her for the rest of her life.

Talking to her was really comfortable, and dang she is a great listener. She never hesitated to share her own experience when it comes to course work related matters.

Great teacher, hopefully she doesn't stop. She have to travel all the way from Selayang to Subang everyday to teach! Holly Son of A B*TCH! I wouldn't travel THAT long,

This is when the term "Love is INDEED blind" comes into picture.

Oh well, I have yet to come to terms with myself to open up to another person, so *whistle*

BTW, did I mention she have a Muslim name?


Dang, I have 7 Aishas in my life now.

1 from subang, 6 in UPM Serdang, Sit Aisha, Siti Aisha with ', Ayesha, Aisha something , and Aisha something something.

Next up, as all hokkien does, Bai Tee Gong.

This year was brief and tiring, CNY was like a bullet train passing by and everyday was tiring.

Another pictureless post. Screw you streamyx

Buffetting : Tentative Decision 2

So we had this huge argue and fight over vet or med.

And well, give or take I made a deal.

A semester in Monash.

which I'd promise myself to hate it.

And I'm back with vet.

Or should I receive it with open hands just to feel the best of medicine?

Oh well, vet or med forever.
