The Last Goodbye

Assalamualaikum

Goodbye is never easy, right?

We witnessed for the last time Steven Gerrard in Liverpool shirt last night. It still breaks my heart to even think Liverpool is now playing without him.

He has been the spine of the team for years. Superstars come and go, but he has remained loyal to the Liverpool crest. He carried the team and won countless games on his own. His leadership qualities are second to none. He hadn't won many trophies as he would have liked, but he remains a hero nevertheless. 

Despite all the sentiments, we Liverpool fans do not place high hopes for next season. The current squad lacks leadership and winning mentalities. 

Next season will be ours. Haha. It never fails to tickle your funny bones right?

Till next time,
Assalamualaikum

Cuci kereta

Assalamualaikum

It is Friday and I am not at work today. I need to clear all annual leave days before leaving for USM.

I still have 4 more working days in Melaka. They had a farewell party for us last week. Of all 3, I did not receive any present, yet.

Saying goodbye is always difficult, isn't it? As much as I hate that, I fear more the start of the journey in USM. Knowledge-wise, I am probably at par with current batch of undergraduate medical students.

I plan to complete a few more tasks on the list today. Cuci kereta is almost done. Next, to get my DVD writer fixed. Following that is to go to Astro.

Only 1 thing not sorted is the destination for holiday next week. Our last vacation before leaving for USM. I may not show much emotion, but I am going to miss wifey and daughter a lot.

Car is almost ready.

Till next time,
Assalamualaikum

Lub dub lub dub

Assalamualaikum

I am now back in the hospital again. The kind of life that we go through, that we actually spend more time at workplace, rather than home.

I found out Blogger mobile is less flexible, in my previous entry. You can't resize n relocate the photo. The options for other things are limited too.

Gotta go and save lives.

Will be back again,
Assalamualaikum

On call

Assalamualaikum

Blogging from my phone now. So tech savvy kan?

On call has been relatively peaceful so far. There is a long way to go still though. It's a long weekend, and here I am spending time with patients.

It's difficult being in a public hospital setting. Everyone's fighting for long weekend, e.g. Labour day friday, weekend and wesak day on monday. No annual leave will be deducted. It's a bit unfair for those who have to work because they won't get any replacement off days.

But we chose to be in this line, didn't we?

Although I will miss Kelantan football match tonight, and Liverpool QPR as well, there is something that I am looking forward to tomorrow morning.

It's PacMan vs Mayweather, people!!

A couple of hours of short nap afterwards before I get myself ready for the next on call.

Sigh.

Perhaps I should get myself prepared for rounds tonight first, before I start thinking of the next one.

Pray for me a good call!!

Adios,
Assalamualaikum

Menghitung detik

Assalamualaikum

Let's start with the most cliche way. Sorry for keeping the blog hiatus. It's a combination of all, time, laziness, idea and commitment that is keeping me busy.


My wife is asleep, right next to me. In less than a month's time, I will be alone in Kelantan. Everyday is about completing the day, counting the hours to fly home again so that I can be with my wife and daughter.

What makes it harder is that my wife is pregnant with our second child. The moments when she will need help the most are the times when I won't be able to be there.

Well, the journey that I am taking is the completion of second half of my studies. It is certainly going to be extremely difficult, and having no family members around is not going to make it any easier.

I haven't found a place to stay yet. Kelantan, despite being known as a poor state socioeconomically, things are rather expensive here. Studio apartment can cost you RM1000 the cheapest. Ain't kidding bro, you can check it on Mudah.my

You may wonder why am I not taking my family along. It is not as easy as you think. To secure a place in Kota Bharu as a medical officer is not easy. Hence,  if she gets somewhere else far, she may as well stay wherever she is now. I can't afford to ask her to go on unpaid leave. Economically it is not viable. She just bought a new car, still paying for her house in Melaka and she also provides some money to her mother monthly. I, on the other hand, have a car and house to pay, ASB and lots of other things too.

It's going to be a challengin time ahead. Puasa will also start in June. Buka puasa alone, sahur alone, and the same routine repeats everyday, till the day I get to go the airport to fly home.

Where is home now? Melaka or KL?

It doesn't matter. What matters is Ohana. Ohana means family, and I am going to miss them so much when the time finally comes.

I hope I can start blogging on regular basis again. Time consuming really, but I get to say what I want to say, and I like that.

till next time,
assalamualaikum

Turbulence

Assalamualaikum

In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

I did not keep my promise, I'm terribly sorry for this. I couldn't write on regular basis, as I had wished. It has been a turbulent 4 months. So many things have happened, my end of exams and all.

I'm still physically and mentally exhausted. This torture hasn't come to its end yet.

Can't wait to be back in KL and Melaka again. I haven't seen my daughter and wife for 10 days. Not easy, I know.

till next time.

membunuh masa

Assalamualaikum

Sekarang tengah kat bilik on call. Specialist on call tak sampai lagi so lepak kejap kat dalam bilik.

Alhamdulillah, walaupun setakat ni agak sibuk, tapi kebanyakan masih di bawah kawalan. Pagi saja untuk postnatal rounds ada 31 babies, so nak tercabut lutut rasa.

Ikutkan kalau on call yang macam biasa xdela komplen sangat, yang ni pun bukanla komplen, sekadar bercerita je. Kalau on call biasa, malam sebelum tu biasa dah dapat rehat cukup.

Nak jadi cerita semalam kok 930 am abes on call pastu terus balik, tapi mata lak xnak lelap. Petang tu dapat la tido2 ayam dalam 2 jam kot. Letih gile rasa, pastu jadi panas sebab liverpool xleh nak menang.

Dipendekkan cerita, hari ni kena on call balik. Badan still terasa letih daripada on call sebelum ni and sekarang dh on call.

Tapi buat je la. Yang penting memang kena on call jugak. So daripada komplen baikla buat je.

Seronok gak dapat update blog dari henfon je.

Haha, mengarut gile entry kali ni.

Till next time,
Assalamualaikum
