I remember i was telling my frens that nah i m not going to take biotech cos i dun want to b doing lotsa lab works.. Tadah! I m still doing many lab reports when i m pharmacist student! Now i wanna share something interesting i learn in sem 1.
The most interesting module is Practical Dispensing, where I got to manufacture drugs in different dosage form. The most challenging product is SUPPOSITORIES! The temperature must be just right when you pour it into the mould, if not you will be giving your patient something that doesn't "appealing" to their buttock! I mean it! The suppository is supposed to look like a bullet, but some of my peers' products.. haha.. maybe the patient would rather be sick~~
For my dear friends who may be using suppositories one day, these are my advise:
1. Remember to remove the wrapper- dont laugh, there are instances where the patients insert the suppository into their buttock with the plastic wrapper~ or worst, foil!
2. Not all drugs that look like capsules are meant of oral consumption- if you are not sure whether u r supposed to stuck it into ur mouth or buttock, ask! There were patients that swallow the oily suppository and tell the doctor "yucks the taste of the capsule is disgusting!"
3. Don't act clever, when the pharmacist or doctor give you something and tell you that it s for your buttock.. Instead of a suppository, sometimes it s a pump with liquid inside, all u need to do is to pump liquid into ur anus, and TAKE OUT THE PLASTIC PUMP! A pharmacist told me that his patient actually stuck the whole pump into his anus, n claimed that his constipation doesnt improve! Come on, when u put a cork to a bottle, how do u expect wine to come out? Moreover ur faeces is not so "pourable"!!

My 20th birthday was a good one. I was so so so busy on the eve for Viva La Vida Night, a food bazaar for Cancer Awareness Week. Before that i was telling my frens that most likely i will be spending my last few hours of teen cleaning up the venue, counting down to my birthday while i count the rubbish bags i collected~ Urgh.. Oh well, i did spend my time picking up rubbish, but my lovely coursemates gave me a pleasant surprise!! I was coming out from the toilet, going to get some toilet roll to clean up the ice-cream mess in the Great Hall, i realised all the lights were off. I was thinking: what? so stingy? the event is just over and the lights are already off? Haha.. no no no.. All my frens were standing in the middle of the hall, with a cake!! OMG!! I never expect it at all! I thought the most they will do is to celebrate it after pharmacy visit on the day! Wow..! After singing n blowing out the candles, we din hv time to eat the cake, so the poor cake had to wait for me to send it back home, to b shared v my frens only on the next day.
After cleaning up, it was already 1145pm. Dragging my tired body to Sen Loong's car, i was told that WIng Teck wanna tumpang some stuff to EduSquare. So Sen Loong n i waited patiently in the car.. Meanwhile, phone calls started to flood in~ Calls followed v calls.. Calls from Australia, Muar, Indonesia, bla bla bla~ HAHAHA.. As i was chatting away, i realised it s 12am dy.. hoho.. Suddenly, i saw my Cari Forum gang walking towards me!! OMG OMG!! This s certainly another surprise!! Wahaha.. they bought me Secret Recipe Tiramisu Cake! So damn damn damn happy! But then on the cake it was written happy birthday Za Bo Yee.. zha dao~~
This is the Tiramisu Cake!!
They celebrated my birthday for me by the lake in my uni campus, quite romantic.. They also gave me a useful and pretty bag, haha.. really suitable and in time, since my bag s already quite cacat, and it s a free gift from Anna Sui somemore~
After all those celebration, i reached home at 2am. Urgh, hv to report to sch at 715am! As i was tidying up my stuff, my phone rang again~ talk talk talk till around 4am.. wahaha.. crazy!!
The next morning, surprisingly i was so awaked! Stood for 3.5 hours in a small community pharmacy, then lunch in SA, then had cake v my frens, then rejected a frens invitation to Times Square cos i was super tired, then dinner alone eating catered dinner. I tot my day wud b so ke sian, who knows...
MY LOVELY "TOILETMATE" PREPARED ANOTHER SURPRISE FOR ME!
At around 1210am, she came to my room, asking me if i want any food. I said, nah u want to grow fatter dun ask me along~ She asked, "really? really dun want?" ok.. i surrender, so wat do u hv? "Go to my room to c"
Wah wah wah! She drew me a lovely card, bought me a Baskin Robin Cone, and a cute, BLUE soft toy! I was nearly touched to tears dy lo.. she has been busy v her assignment, yet she still managed to get me sth!
I m so blessed that in this relatively new environment, i still hv a bunch of friends who will celebrate my birthday for me, and most importantly, thanks to my dearest mum who brought me to the world 20 years ago, brought me up, fed me educate me nurture me love me. Thank you, Mummy!

First of all.. INTERNET!
Damn damn damn damn unhappy with the internet service providers~ There is no fixed line in my area, so no streamyx.. Was using digi wireless broadband but it sucks~ one night can disconnect up to 10 times-- no more 11th time because i simply cant take it and just go offline. Then i applied celcom, which promised 24-hour activation. I applied on last saturday, n ytd they told me "oh well u hv to wait till monday!" WHAT THE~~!!!!! Now i m using my fren's wireless account subscribed from sch, which is not good either because it takes years to load webpages, n within 1 hour my MSN got disconnected few times dy.. Urgh urgh urgh~!!!
Before i came here, i was assured that living off campus s safe because there will be security guard. The day i came here i was quite happy to c them patrolling. However, within 1 month i moved to this place i hv heard numerous theft cases and even snatch theft! There was even Peeping Tom!! MAY UR EYES ROT and NEVER GET WELL!!I hv also dialed police station number for the 1st time in my life-- and even nagged at the police for their inefficiency~ So, from opening the window when i sleep, to simply shut the window at ALL times, i hv to b more more more alert to protect myself. Guards? oh well they are for decoration purpose.
3rdly, Computer lab
This one.. is minor case.. No more facebook and blogspot using sch computer.. well, if i can hv a "ok-ok" internet access at home, who cares? But do i hv it now? No, so i care!!
Enough, if i continue to type some more, i will just feel bu shuang bu shuang n bu shuang..........!!

Other than that, I have lab sessions that involves drugs reaction, clinical cases etc. Students are divided into groups of 3-7, according to the nature of the experiments. The 1st lab session was on drug reaction on human. The drugs we used we Pilocarpine and Tropicamide-- drugs that will either dilate or constrict pupil.. This sounds really scary. Luckily i wasnt the subject but the observer. After "drugged" by me, my partners had dilated or constricted pupil for about 5 hours! OMG... after lab session, we need to present our findings in seminar right after lunch break. Haiz, we dont even have proper lunch break! After seminar, we need to submit a long long long report on the next day~~
Anyway, although i complain a lot, i LOVE MY COURSE!!

Beijing Olympics's grand opening ceremony made Chinese all over the world proud. I doubt any other country is able to produce such a spectacular program. Perfectly coordinated performers, amazingly beautiful fireworks, creative props, artistic programs, all these remind us that China is rising, progressing, and will be leading the world. However, some reports claim that the firework effect was faked, etc etc~ I wonder whether those claims are credible, but this particular report.. saddens me..
The cute girl who performed "Hymn to the Motherland" was actually not the original singer of the pre-recorded tape! Another girl of similar age sang it!
As my family and I were watching the opening ceremony, we were commenting that the girl is so so so cute, so "China", cooperative, and so lucky to be chosen to sing the song. Never did we ever consider that she was chosen just because she is cuter and more presentable than the original singer, while the original singer who has wonderful voice was hidden behind the scene. How does the "original girl" accept the fact that she actually sings for Olympics, but the world will recognise another girl to be the singer? And accept the fact that this happened largely due to her buck teeth? I cant imagine how is this event going to hurt her, affect her confidence? And maybe even ruin her life? What message is this incident sending?
"You can be talented, you can be hardworking, but if you do not have the look, sorry..."
Is this the image that the Chinese want to potray?

The next day, we went to see the making of Batik and silver. We also visited paintings shop.
Traditional Bali paintings are very complicated.. I spent a long time looking at this painting...
Then, we went Kintamani. It is a volcano area. The weather there was good as it was a bit chilly at noon.The picturesque scenery accompanied us for buffet lunch... It was a shame that we didnt get to go near to the volcano. Hopefully there will be a chance for me to go there again! When we were going to leave the place, hawkers selling souvenirs, drawing temporary tattoo kept on pestering us~~~ They just crowded around us, shouting "Tiga lima untiuk semua" etc~ We had no choice but to patronize a bit..
On our way down from Kintamani, there were many rice fields along the road. Bali paddy field is different with what we usually see in Kedah. As the rice fields are planted on hill, farmers had to make them into staircase-like columns so that water can be retained in the columns.

Went shopping with a friend. He tried a shirt, satisfied, proceed to the cashier while I was looking around. Suddenly, he handed me his $50 note and asked me to pay for him. Asking him why, he said he would tell me later. I paid for him, wondering what's going on.. Don't tell me the lady at the cashier is his old flame?
After paying, we walked for about 10m, i asked him again.
Him: Look at my shirt
(after 2 secs, i burst in laughter)
Oh my god~~ this blur fella wore his shirt inside out!
Not only that, the label was right in front also!!
Super~~ Duper~~~ FUNNY!!!
Quietly, he moved to a fitting room, wore the shirt in the correct way..
My friend, told me his story...
"At work, after excercising, i took off my shirt since i was sweating heavily, as usual. Then my watchroom guy pressed the secondary alarm, and got us into alert. so i ran up my vehicle w/o my shirt on...in a rush, i juz put on my shirt in d vehicle as we moved towards the runway. After problem solved, we went back, got down, and my boss told me later tt i wore my shirt wrong way round... ie inside out"
WAHAHA.. another big laugh for me!
Guys, PLEASE employ the skill that ur mama taught u when u were 3-year-old. It is quite important, ok??
Anyway, thanks for giving me some laughter!

In the show, all kinds of experiment are done. You get to test which smell attracts women the most: pheromone, sweat or cologne; how much impact will a big big cloud cause if it turns to rain all at one go etc
There is this experiment: How much help would a pretty gal get, compared to an ugly gal..
hoho.. a bit cruel..
So they let 1 pretty gal drag a heavy luggage up the stairs 1st
Almost all men who see her doing that alone offered to help
Next, the ugly gal tried her luck
But, NOBODY OFFERED TO HELP HER AT ALL!!
urgh... men r so realistic! i thought at least a few people would lend her a helping hand, but none did that! so bad..
no wonder katak asked me to take k of myself when i go bali v his gang-- cos he NEEDS to take care of the pretty friends but not his buddy-- me
haiz.. i m thinking..
when i drag my heavy luggage from public transport to my new uni, will some1 help me?
i better do more weight training...

Few weekends ago, i had a gathering v wanxin leyying and guoting.. yeah they r my good frens i met in singapore! That time, I was in Pontian, Guoting in Muar, Wanxin in Tampin n Leyying in Singapore.. n we din meet up for quite a while dy.. so we decided to hv a gathering!!
Since pontian s a bit far from tampin, i went Muar to meet u guoting 1st..
Muar.. i went there for a few times when i was active in student reporter. So when i had to wait for guoting for a few hours in muar town, i had a good time "loitering"!! At night, went to guoting's house.. haha her house was full of females! i din c any male at all (cos her bro wasnt home yet by the time i went to sleep)
The following day, we were drove to Tampin. Wanxin was the one who came to pick us up! Surprise! After lunch at her place, we went A Famosa to see animals 1st while wanxin went to pick up leyying..
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT IS THIS?
Then, we headed to the water world!! wow it s so fun!!! the most memorable game is "High Speed"-- something like a slide where player slides down from abt 4 storey's height. It was quite 'OH MY GOD" cos i din even get to shout-- not only because it s quite scary, but the water splash nearly chocked me also!
After exciting games, we took our time to enjoy in the wave pool.
After all those nonsense, we went back home to shower, then dinner.. At 12am, we r supposed to sleep already right? NO!! We went out for tampin's famous SATAY!!! the succulent pork v a little bit burnt edges plus spicy peanut satay sauce.. wow.. nice! After tt, we 4 gals finally got to sleep in the same room!! Happy!! Chatted for a while, but soon we all fell asleep. Cos we were really exhausted after the day!
Next day, we went Melaka for breakfast.. Then, we took different buses to go back to our places..
A short but enjoyable trip =) looking forward to our next trip!
