Being a 1980's baby, at the age of 10, I remember myself watching cartoons such as Carebears, My Little Pony and Jem. The computer was something new to us, when it was about using floppy discs and there was no such thing as Windows.
Primary school kids now are capable of chatting, emailing and blogging.

V.I.P= Violence and Injury Prevention.
A course that I had expected to be very dry and boring turned out to be quite educational. I didn't sleep in any of the lectures! That is an achievement for me.
Some of the things that I learnt..
1. TELEDERA: 1800883040, TALIAN NUR: 15999
2. Jantina is not the same as gender- jantina is determined biologically, gender is by one's role and social responsibilities.
3. There is a law for people who putus tunang without sebab munasabah, and also something called saman malu.
4. A whole lot of other things which are applicable to welfare officers and social workers..
After a whole day long of lectures yesterday, I drove to Malacca town to meet up with my good old friend of mine, Shobs. She took the trouble to drive all the way from Muar after work just to meet up with me. Thanks Shobs! Muahhhs! love ya!
With the bride-to-be...(And that would be the one on the right ok!)
Anyway, I'm glad that agreed to attend this course, even though I had drive all the way down to Ayer Keroh and need to be on-call the very next day, ie tomorrow. This is one of the good things about working in a district hospital. We get 'paid trips' all the time!

My youngest sister participated in this competition, organised by DIGI which requires them to act out a story chosen from the book- Asian Folk Tales given by the organiser to the participating schools. SK Raja Muda was selected to take part in the finals, which was held at Dewan Bahasa & Pustaka last Saturday.
It was fun watching the school kids cheering, holding banners up and their school teachers being ever so supportive. Really missed my good ol school days..
I was amazed by the talent that the participants had. Kids nowadays are just so different. They were all so confident, spoke really well, danced gracefully and showed much enthusiasm. I could appreciate the huge amount of effort which was put in every play that was shown.
The best moment was when the MC announced.....
'I think there is a mistake. In order to win this award, the actor/actress has to be a human being..but the winner is an animal..'
At that time we just couldn't believe it. My sister had won the best actor/actress award.
The sad bit was that their school lost in the overall category. Tears were shed among the SK Raja Muda participants...
Kuyea: 'Percayalah pada diri..dengan harapan dan, keyakinaaaaann....' heh.
Nevertheless, I'm sure the fun and experience that they have gained were far more than what they had expected. The memories that they had will last for a lifetime.
Me with the future Hollywood Superstar.

I don't think I have shown the panaromic view of Banting from my balcony in this blog..
The yellow houses are the old hospital quarters.
I would never walk through the playground again...after I saw a grey snake, which slithered towards the house nearby..Ewww..
One of the surviving plants...Mum gave me this one coz it doesn't require so much water to survive. Perfect for me.
And.....I have finally uploaded my latest pics to my Facebook page last night..It's about time..I've received numerous sarcastic remarks from people for not updating my Facebook profile. Well folks, I finally did it.
How will I spend my day after work today? We'll just have to wait and see. I've the feeling it'll be another wasteful day again..

By the bedside
Patrick Teoh standing in front as the MC. Behind him: Ida Nerina, Rashid and Gavin Yap. Douglas Lim is the one in orange, Joanna on his left, and the other two jokers-Reza and Afdlin. Harith is the one over the far right.
Of course they are now showing Actorlympics on ntv7-which is not even half as good as the one shown at Actor's Studio. Probably because it's in Malay and.........censored. Anyways, you could catch the TV show on YouTube.
An hour? Two hours? Well, for health professionals who deal with lactating mothers, the requirement is to attend an 18 hour breastfeeding course . However, our group was unfortunate enough to have 24 hours of breastfeeding lectures..Over a span of FOUR days...yup. FOUR days..
The reason why I'm attending this course...Not beause I'm lactating, but just because I'm in charge of the paediatrics ward and I'm in contact with mothers post-delivery...Need to assist them whenever necessary...Heh, a girl like me supervising a mother to breastfeed, never crossed my mind when I started medical school.
I suffered throughout the lectures..The topics were so dry! Of course some were good and educational..There was one particular session which was very...interesting.
Each one of us were given a skin-coloured pantyhose, magic markers and foam. Guess what we had to make..Heh, you guessed it right. This is my product.
Fake Boob: Front View
Behind: The anatomy of the breast
A table full of boobs. Something that never crossed your mind.
