Dinner batch!

Salam to all. I want to share with you today about my B2 batch's dinner, held in Ebony (13th floor restaurant) in MG road. It was a sudden decision. Lead by hadi, he and others were planning to do this batch's dinner since many batches, like A1 and B1 had already done theirs. So, during the OBG recess time yesterday, it has been decided. To make it short, we went to MG road by TT at around 1930. Out of 19, only 9 joined the dinner. The nine were myself, hadi, waheeda, atiqah, mimi, syahir, yaya, noni and nazri. The others were unable to come, I guess. So, we arrived there at 2015. Waheeda has reserved an outdoor area. We sat, we ordered, and we chatting. About the food, since this is my first time to Ebony, I can say that the food was great and exquisite. For me, I ordered myself a nice salad, a steak and a sheppard pie! The pie was superb, and the consequence is a headache because it is filled with mutton/kheema, hehehe. But it was sure pay off!! The others too order something nice, but the most I like noni's because the serving plate was unique, huhuhuhu. It was a great night, and I really myself enjoyed being there, eventhough I am more on the food than the chit chat, hahahaha. Anyway, I am hoping that another batch dinner can be held, with all of us being there. O yeah, not to forget about the total price, rps 4609, with me as the main contributor, hahahahaha. After the dinner, all of us decided to buy something at KFC (yup, we have consume one of the sins, gluttony, hahahaha). After that, went back to TT, and drove back home safely.

Heart, say it loud!!

Salam to all. I have this big questions that I always kept in my heart, and now I want to share with all of you. Are we meant to be around people? Do people around you appreciate you? Do people love and care for you as you are, and not for the sake of your wealth, your 'too good' act? Do people intend to be friend with you honestly? Do people really like you being around? These are my questions that I have kept for a long time, ever since before my mother's death. I never answer, or even find an answer to any of these questions. Every time they haunted me back, I try to keep myself alone, because for me alone is the best moment for me to think, but I never get any answer from it. I just thought maybe that when I put these questions on my blog, maybe it can ease me, even just a little. My heart also is burden with something else. The burden of wanting a true friend, to understand me, to appreciate me, to be here with me, to fill in my life, to take away all the pain, the suffer that I have gone through. I just want someone to listen to me. Is that hard to get one?! Sometime I also think that it is all my fault. Maybe because of my unwanted presenting nature of shadowing myself from them. I know it's sound quite complicated, but that's me. Always the weird one, never a normal one. I really want to see what I saw in TV, friends hugging, share the joy and pain together, laugh together become reality in my life. I closed myself to people eventhough people always open for me. Always the one who push aside the opportunity to have a great life. I always say to some of my friends, "be optimist, not pessimist." Wish I could use my own advice on myself. Sometime I think that Allah want to test me, to test my faith, my believes, and my strength of enduring this challenge and unfortunately, I have failed. I maybe great in my study, but I have failed in my life. I'm a total loser.........

Field Trip!!!!!! ~yeah right~

Salam to all. Today, I want to share with you about my batch "field trip" for community medicine. Yesterday, we have been taken to MS Ramaiah water processing plant located just behind MS Ramaiah teaching hospital, near the mortuary and boy's hostel. Dr. Gopinath sent us there to see with our own eyes about how water was actually processed in Ramaiah complex. Before the visit, I thought that the water that we used everyday in Ramaiah is supplied by water company, like we have in Malaysia (eg: PAM in Melaka, SYABAS in Selangor, etc), but it was different here. Ramaiah complex depend to 4 bore wells that they have within their ground to supply water to every building within the complex! Yup, 4 BORE WELLS! I was soo don't believe what they said, but it's true. If I wasn't wrong, the bore wells can supply to ~400,00 people. We have been escorted by this 2 gentlemen, who I believed to be the engineer that responsible with the water processing plant. They bring us to laundry area, the sump, the storage well, the online chlorination machine, etc. they explained to us and answered our questions very well. Thanks to them, me and my freinds finally understand how the water is processed. Here are some pictures regarding to the visit (complement from munira).

"No sleeping sahrmini, hahaha"

"like having school trip, huhuhuhu"

I want to wish to all the mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day!!!!!! It was a day where people around the world celebrate this day by thanking, giving present, and do whatever it takes for their beloved mother. Seeing my friends wishing their mother make me feel a lil' bit jealous, and sad. If she was still here, I would give her a big, huge hug and a present, huhuhuhuhu. Leaving that aside, I would like to advice all the children out there, appreciate your mother, love them and always make them happy, before it is too late. Finally, I would like to wish again:

What should I do??

Salam to all. It's been a while. Too much work to be done, too much thing to cope up with, huhuhuhuhu. As you all, if there is nothing wrong, I'll be having my end-semester holiday around Spetember. After the exam, almost all my friends will go back to celebrate Eid with their family. Me? I decided not to go back this year, because I just been back to Malaysia just last year. My Angah never went back home for 4 years, so, why should I can't do that?? Anyway, I'm having quite a dilemma right now. There are also some who didn't go back this year for Eid, like Farid Nazmi, Rohaizat, Dzola, Dzulhelmi, Anas and others. Farid asked me to join his group to Egypt this coming holiday, and Anas, who has bought a ticket to Europe willingly to cancel it and join us if I go. I was soo don't know what to do, and feeling a lil' bit guilty towards roy. I didn't want him to stay because of me. I'm still thinking about it. Hoping to get fresh opinion from you guys.


Ok, I am in crush with someone, or should I say something, hehehehehe. Yes, I am now fall in love with Nokia Express Music 5800 (the one with touch screen). When I saw it for the first time on net, it was absolutely a jem in the sea of glasses, huhuhuhuhu. I was mesmerized by its beauty, and its high tech. Ive planned to buy it this week. My old phone? I was thinking to give it up to my sister (along @ kak dila), depend to both of them. But, my decision is not yet confirmed. I still have to go 'usha' with shazwan this Saturday, right after the election. If the price is good, then I buy it, if not, I stick to my oldie 5610 Express Music, huhuhuhuhu. So, wish me luck, hahahahaha.

JP Park!!

Salam to all. Yes, for the first time in 1 year and 5 months living here in Bangalore, this is my first time going to the JP park which was only located around the vicinity of Mathikere, huhuhuhuhu. My journey is accompanied by Paan. We went there at 0605. We walked, not riding an auto or anything else ~bangga2, heheheh~ To make it short, we reached there around 0620. I was totally amazed with the view there + its huge space!!!! Many people there, exercising, while I'm just sooo excited to feel the cold breeze of JP park, hehehehehe. Paan show me around the JP Park. It was a fun morning, and I really enjoyed it, totally!!! Back at home at 0830, after having breakfast at Day Fresh. Well, that's all. Just to share my excitement with you guys!

Swine Flu.....Epidemic or Pandemic??

Salam to all. My post today is concerning with the world's problem nowadays, the swine flu. It has almost kill more than a dozen of people in Mexico and now spreading rapidly. What is swine flu actually? Let's hear this statement:

"Swine influenza (also swine flu, hog flu, and pig flu) refers to influenza caused by any strain of the influenza virus endemic in pigs (swine). Strains endemic in swine are called swine influenza virus (SIV).

Of the three genera of human flu, two are endemic also in swine: Influenzavirus A is common and Influenzavirus C is rare. Influenzavirus B has not been reported in swine. Within Influenzavirus A and Influenzavirus C, the strains endemic to swine and humans are largely distinct.

Swine flu is common in swine in the midwestern United States (and occasionally in other states), Mexico, Canada, South America, Europe (including the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Italy), Kenya, China, Japan, Taiwan, and other parts of eastern Asia.

Swine flu is rare in humans. People who work with swine, especially people with intense exposures, are at risk of catching swine influenza if the swine carry a strain able to infect humans. However, these strains infrequently circulate between humans as SIV rarely mutates into a form able to pass easily from human to human. In humans, the symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of influenza and of influenza-like illness in general, namely chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pain, severe headache, coughing, weakness and general discomfort."

Now that you have know about swine flu, let me tell you this. The outbreak of swine flu today has been caused by a new strain of influenza A virus subtype H1N1 that derive from one strain of human influenza virus, one strain of the avian influenza virus and two separate strains of swine influenza viruses. In a simple word, it is a new mutated virus. Some measurement of prevention can be taken to protect yourselves from swine flu.

Methods of preventing the spread of influenza among swine include facility management, herd management, and vaccination. Because much of the illness and death associated with swine flu involves secondary infection by other pathogens, control strategies that rely on vaccination may be insufficient.

Control of swine influenza by vaccination has become more difficult in recent decades, as the evolution of the virus has resulted in inconsistent responses to traditional vaccines. Standard commercial swine flu vaccines are effective in controlling the infection when the virus strains match enough to have significant cross-protection, and custom (autogenous) vaccines made from the specific viruses isolated are created and used in the more difficult cases.Present vaccination strategies for SIV control and prevention in swine farms, typically include the use of one of several bivalent SIV vaccines commercially available in the United States. Of the 97 recent H3N2 isolates examined, only 41 isolates had strong serologic cross-reactions with antiserum to three commercial SIV vaccines. Since the protective ability of influenza vaccines depends primarily on the closeness of the match between the vaccine virus and the epidemic virus, the presence of nonreactive H3N2 SIV variants suggests that current commercial vaccines might not effectively protect pigs from infection with a majority of H3N2 viruses. The United States Department of Agriculture researchers say that while pig vaccination keeps pigs from getting sick, it does not block infection or shedding of the virus.

Facility management includes using disinfectants and ambient temperature to control virus in the environment. The virus is unlikely to survive outside living cells for >2 wk except in cold (but above freezing) conditions, and it is readily inactivated by disinfectants.

Herd management includes not adding pigs carrying influenza to herds that have not been exposed to the virus. The virus survives in healthy carrier pigs for up to 3 months and can be recovered from them between outbreaks. Carrier pigs are usually responsible for the introduction of SIV into previously uninfected herds and countries. After an outbreak, as immunity in exposed pigs wanes, new outbreaks of the same strain can occur.

Therefore, I would like to advice the people out there; avoid pig from now, and if you having a flu-like symptoms as stated above, please go the nearest hospital for immediate chcek-up, and don't go to the country where is is epidemic right now, eg: Mexico. Pray that this flu will not become pandemic, as once occur by the Spanish flu which have took millions of life throughout the world in 1918. May Allah bless all of us and protect us from this devastating disease.
