I can’t believe that I forgot to blog this. Its been like a week since Z’s birthday on 31st July last week. Hahaha. BUT don’t judge. I already posted it on Instagram.
This was the only thing that I could do for him (cash problem, guys. HAHA). A simple birthday treat at Mr Steakhouse Shah Alam, our favourite places during our meat cravings strikes. Reasonable yet affordable prices with tonnes of food selections! The one he’s eating in this photo is Chicken Merryland and we’re actually don’t know what the hell is it. A chicken playing merry goes around? Turned out its just a normal special fried chicken meat with veggies and liquidy tomato sauce. It was pretty tasty tho.
The only thing that I couldn’t believe is that we’re being together for like 5 years. Without him, my life would changed 360° like seriously. There were too many ‘first time’ things that he helped me to experience and if I could make the book of firsts, I would. Haha. Our lives are too different that he literally took me inside his world to blend in. Fyi, I have social anxiety like 24/7 non-stop and he helps me to go through with it. I’m such a freak but he can handle it.
Thanks for taking me to play my very first bowling game.
Thanks for taking me to enjoy my very first steamboat food.
Thanks for taking me to places I’ve never been.
Thanks for sending me to class everyday.
Thanks for sending me food at night when I get crazy.
Thanks for my very first takoyaki treat.
Thanks for helping me buying makeups.
Thanks for helping me with my driving license.
Thanks for hold on to me when the time of the month. HAHA.
There’s too many to mention. TMTM. All the good deeds that I would never ever forget and I’m hoping that we can proceed to the next step when you finished your study. I’m waitin’ for you. Hehe.
Happy 23rd Birthday to the curry of my rice, the sugar of my donuts, the gravy of my potatoes and that’s all I can think of. What’s with the food memes? Bcs I love you as much as I love food 😂
I think I need to keep this blog updated frequently isn’t it? From now on, I’ll be posting daily instead of writing about interesting things ONLY. Haha. Time flies so fast. Need to catch ’em up!
So a week ago, me and Z went to Melaka just to take a space out from the city. Since we’re never took a vacation together so we thought why not? Melaka is not so far from here so we ‘gambled’ and everything was unplanned. Just packed out our things on the night before and the next day, we’re good to go! Some things is much more simpler if we left it unplanned. There you go. Quote of the day. HAHA.
Fyi, we already went to Melaka in the diploma days but its like 3 years ago and I must say, during that time, we’re just like a bunch of teenagers who doesn’t appreciated enough the moments of travel. And now that we’re 23, after all the degree’s torturing, we really need this. The one and only thing that we missed is the beach.
The well-known Pantai Klebang.
Although it seems that the ocean doesn’t looks like Maldives (the only universal comparison I can think of. HAHA), but the scenery was great. The first step-to-sand touchdown was the greatest feeling. I can sucked the nature spirit under my feet! Exaggerate! Haha. Another thing that is interesting is that on the opposite of the beach, across the road is the line up of food stalls and the bustel which is a hotel-bus hybrid. Haha. Pretty awesome, right? They also even have a bustoilet that looks like a home toilet. OMG. Just give them a medal please for the convenience.
Just look like the sand. Never had a thought that it will ruined my skirt. Hahaha.
We’re really enjoying our moments here. Couldn’t imagine that we had this one time here a few years back and it was a haze. Just because we didn’t have other time to lounger at the beach, we decided to ‘wear’ an invisible mask just to pretend that the air was not polluted. Haha. Good ‘ol days.
The next day, we went to our favourite barber shop by Auntie Molly. Had a haircut at only RM12, guys. Tell me where I can find this price in Shah Alam? Its a rhetorical question and the answer is no. Hahaha. Again for the unexpected day, we decided to go to Port Dickson just to look around. I went there a few times before but never had a chance to walk around the beach so the time has come.
I don’t know why I bought that red hat (maybe I can’t stand the idea that the colour matches my clothes theme?) Hahaha. It was pretty hot tho so the purchase was worth it. Here in Port Dickson beach, its a lil bit crowded. Looks like this place never give up to attract tourists and travelers. One thing that I love is that the ocean is literally blue and looks clean! I cannot resist myself to went into the water and don’t care if my pants is wet. Hahaha.
We were really had a great time. Although we’re not buying anything like literally nothing (forgot the hat), this put me in a situation that just go travel if you want although if you’re low in cash because the moments is treasure. Fyi, we were just spent for the gas and food. That’s all. Hahaha.
I am so in the mood of writing right now because of the biggest burden has been removed from my shoulder; the FYP presentation. Alhamdulillah. Yesterday was a historical day for me. I managed to get it over with. For us the final year student, the only thing that we can think of in this last semester is this. Its all about this presentation AND it is not an ordinary one BUT it is kinda torturing. You’ll never know how your project will turns out. Positive results or negative results? You need to juggle your time management wisely.
Facing six panels out of seven was a toughie. Seriously, I was nervous and not very well-prepared. Four hours of sleep was not enough guys. More unlikely, I’m the 4th presenter. Hahaha. There’s one thing I flabbergasted about was that I’m not shaking! Normally, I was nervous as hell and it can be seen on my hands obviously. Alhamdulillah for that. I think, I’m more into presentations now. Getting used to it. It is a good thing tho.
I was lucky this time. Dr Maslinda who is the senior lecturer for our program always asks lots of questions or giving opinions on like everything that makes her curious. Honestly, since she taught us on the third semester, we’re kinda terrified of her. Hahaha. BUT lucky me, I’m the only student that she didn’t asked and it was a miracle. Haha. Who would had thought of that? I managed to ‘escape’ from her!
Actually, I didn’t put too much effort on my FYP (juniors, pls don’t try this at home. Haha). I know, I know. In the beginning of the semester, there’s nothing that encouraged me at that time because I feel exhausted of my previous FYP proposal writing. It was chaos. I spent a lot of time on that and I want to rest, take a chill pill. Haha.
Alhamdulillah. I can’t believe its almost over. ❤
P/S : If you want me to do a special post for the tips on this FYP stuff, leave a comment down below or send me an email.
Next week is gonna be the climax of my final semester when on this 16th will be held the Final Year Project (FYP) presentation. I’m looking forward to this, also a lil bit freak out. Hahaha. I cannot wait for this to end. This FYP is all about your degree from the start until today compiled together including your tears, emotions roller coaster, mental tortures and everything! Sounds a lil bit extreme, huh? Hahaha.
Last week was the final week for the lab work and now we just focusing on the presentation and the thesis. I could’t imagine how my brain and body can cope with this since its just not about the FYP but also we have classes, tests, lab reports and assignments to submit. It is hardcore, guys. So yesterday, we were having a lab cleaning session handle by one of the lab assistant, Kak Nurul.
It almost come to the end, my degree (although I don’t care about my grades anymore. Hahaha) Of course I want to pass and get the scroll. Can’t wait for the moment. I learned a lot here.
Now, I can keep my lab coat in the basement. Haha.
Dah lama rasanya tak taip post yang panjang sebab memang tengah busy sekarang. Tinggal beberapa bulan untuk officially habis degree insyaAllah. So excited! So hari ni nak share sikit pengalaman praktikal masa time diploma dulu since ada adik-adik yg tanya. Meh ahkak nak bagitau ni.
Time aku praktikal tu kalau tak silap dalam 2013 macam tu la. I’m not sure kalau student AS114 yang sekarang ni still ada praktikal ke or ada perubahan ke so janganlah tanya akak ye sebab akak memang tak tau apa dah jadi kt sistem UiTM kt Kuala Pilah tu. Hahaha.
For the internship, Hospital Sg Buloh is the only place yang accept aku punya resume and calls untuk praktikal so aku malas dah nak mintak kt tempat lain. Haha. As we know, during my time, it is compulsory for every student utk pergi industrial training in final semester. Majoriti science students memang akan pergi praktikal. Contohnya under my faculty ; Faculty of Applied Science banyak course yg mewajibkan student utk pergi praktikal such as Diploma in Textile and Food Technology.
Cakap pasal tempat praktikal actually banyak tempat yg boleh kita mohon macam hospital, kilang2 industri or any companies yg memang ambik student praktikal. Classmates aku ramai yg mintak kt hospital as kitorang more to lab practical so selalunya akan diterimalah. Ada jugak yg mintak kt Sime Darby, kilang Gardenia, Jabatan Kimia, MPOB, makmal veterinar.
Actually aku tinggal kt Perak tapi saja mengada nak mintak area Selangor. Nak menimba pengalaman di negeri orang kateko. Hahaha. Lagipun best what. Boleh belajar macam-macam kt tempat orang. Boleh explore dan berdikari sikit. Nanti time nak kerja, at least pengalaman tu dah ada. Jangan asyik nak dekat dengan rumah je. Merantau sikit sekali-sekala. Barulah best!
Honestly, aku agak terkejut beruk bila first touchdown kt hospital ni. Tak pernah seumur hidup aku tengok hospital yg ada escalator. Hahaha. Jakun. Kt sini aku praktikal kt Pathology Department kt ground level. Kepada yg tak tahu praktikal berapa lama? 3 bulan weh. 3 bulan nak jakun dengan escalator dan aku hanya berdua dengan member intern sesama kt sini so better berpakatlah dengan kawan nak mintak tempat praktikal sama. Kalau ada member syok sikit.
FIRST & SECOND DAY
First and second day kitorang duduk kt Integration Lab. Ada kaunter utk doctors or any staff hantar sample. Tugas kitorang ialah acknowledge sample and lekat2 barcode kt sample so nanti senang nk manage utk hantar kt lab yg sepatutnya.
Then, masuk lab Mikrobiologi. Sebulan posting kt dalam lab ni sebab kitorang major pun in microbiology so rotate setiap seksyen 1 minggu which is
The most favourite section of course lah sample processing ataupun kt sana panggil culture section. Reason? Sebab at this section lah more to practical which is the streaking method and all. Memang paling favourite! Tambah pulak main job kitorang kt sana buat Gram Stain je kejenya. Dah lali sangat dah sebab almost everyday duk buat benda alah tu je. Haha. Kitorang tak kisah pun sebab kalau duduk saja boring lah pulak.
Nahhh aku siap edit lagi pic ni nak tunjuk betapa aku belajar sesuatu sangat dalam lab mikrob tu. Hahahaha. Sesuatu lah sangat. First thing yg buat aku impress giler is tempat bakar loop tu. Seriously macam batak plus jakun plus peghak. Almaklumlah kt UiTM dulu mana ada benda alah ni. Nak bakar loop kemain berebut bunsen burner. Belum lagi cerita pasal fire starter rosak, gas bunsen burner habislah bagai. Guna benda ni barulah efficient gitu.
One more thing aku lupa nak bagitau, kt hospital ni punya bos kt Jabatan Patologi ni tak bagi student praktikal hands-on. Means tak bagi kitorang sentuh apa2 melainkan hanya observe sahaja. Since ada staff yg memahami dan ada jugak yg tak kurang malasnye bagi kitorang handle samples from A to Z. Alhamdulillah sangat sebab dapat staff yg understanding so kitorang dengan baik hatinya tolong sesape je yg mintak tolong even kerja yg takde kena mengena dgn mikrob pun still kitorang buat dgn senang hati. Bukannya apa. Dah kau larat nak duduk saje tercangak tak buat apa2. Memang taklah. Baik aku balik tidur je. Hahaha.
Haaaa tudiaaaa. Orang lain selfie ambik gambar muka. Aku ambik gambar tangan ber-glove sambil buat Gram Stain kauuu. Inilah kerja tetap kitorang. Kt sini sistem Gram Stain dia 1 1 3 1. Apakah? Ini diaaaa. Jangan cakap korang tak belajar pasal ni ye. Benda basic kot as microbiology student. Haha.
Selalunya guna alcohol as decolourizer tapi kt sini guna Acetone Iodine but konsep dia sama je as decolourizer jugak. Untuk masa staining tu ada timer dia. Ala2 jam loceng lah jugak. Haha. So masa staining tu alert la sikit kan. Takdelah overstain ke apa. Karang salah buat tak pasal je kena marah.
Then, lepas staining tu bolehlah observe under mikroskop. Letak setitik immersion oil then observe lah. Selalunya tengok ada pus cell, epithelial ell and bakteria apa. Information record dalam sistem dalam PC macam dalam pic ni Kak Shida tengah buat.
Masa kt sana boleh dikatakan antara tempat yg paling relax giler is media preparation. Orang cakap patutnya tempat masak media lah yg paling busy sebab nk kena buat agar plate sampai beribu-riban tapi time kitorang tu pulak dapat dengan sorang akak ni yg jugak pregnant and hanya masak something ikut mood dia. Dah kalau pregnant tu mood dia memang nk rilek goyang kaki jela kan.
Kalau masak pun semua mesin yg buat. Daripada awal bubuh bahan2 semua sampailah ke isi dalam plate dengan label plate. Semuanya mesin yg buatkan. So jangan salahkan aku kalau goyang kaki serta tangan dalam bilik media.
Haaa gambar kt atas ni namanya stirrer. Function dia utk mixing media powder yg dah dicampur dalam air. Kiranya macam kalau bancuh air milo kita kacau sampai larut pakai sudu kan? Haa kalau media ni dia maju sikit. Takdenye nak pakai sudu bagai. Ni kita letak magnetic stirring bar dalam botol yg dah ada air dgn serbuk media yg kita nk bancuh tu.
Pastu letak je atas hotplate tu. Disebabkan ada magnet dalam hotplate dgn stirring bar tu so dia akan mix automatically macam dalam pic kt bawah ni ha.
First time tengok benda alah ni memang agak jakun jugaklah. Haha. Terus terfikir kalau nk buat milo guna benda ni. Hahaha. Kt dalam bilik media ni ada 2 jenis mesin. Mesin yg boleh buat media dalam 200-300 lebih agar plate dengan mesin yg boleh buat 1000 lebih agar plate. First day masuk akak tu explain macam mana nak masak guna mesin yg kecik tu.
Mesin ni pun sama buat aku jakun jugak. Sebab memang mesin tu je yg buat. Kita just masukkan agar powder dgn air je. Pastu boleh blah nak pegi tido ke makan ke main Subway Surfer ke. Lagipun dia dah siap autoclave kan lagi. Kalau macam dalam lab kt U semuanya kena buat manual. Masak guna oven then nak kena autoclave sendiri. Nak pour pun manual. Jenuh weh. Kalau ada mesin ni time fyp memang goyang kaki lah wey.
Masa ni tengok akak tu masak dah rasa macam Chef Wan. Periuk dia pun boleh tahan gak. Dah boleh dah nk masak sup gearbox dalam ni. Hahaha. Cuma masa masak tu make sure temperature dengan pH dia no problem.
Itulah serba sikit cerita dalam bilik media. Bnyak lagi kerja yg aku buat tapi takde gambar pulak. Hahaha. Pastu nk cerita pasal dalam lab Mycology pulak. For the first time aku tengok pipette ni. Lagi sekali aku terjatuh dalam gaung kejakuna. Hahaha.
Okehh sekarang aku nk cerita pasal UiTM Sg Buloh. Kt sini Faculty of Medicine. Memang bebudak medic jelah yg ada. Kampus besar gila bak hang tapi kolej ada 2 je then yg hebatnya kolej ada 9 level and ada lif. Best tak bestnya jadi budak medic UiTM kt sini. Almaklumlah kampus baru. Aku dgn lagi 4 orang classmates sewa hostel kt sinilah sepanjang praktikal ni. Lepas tolak tambah nego2 sikit, dapatlah RM260 sorang sebulan tolak weekends dengan public holiday.
Agak bersyukur jugaklah sebab waktu ni banyak cuti umum so kurenglah sikit sewa tu kan. Tolak cuti Krismas, New Year, Thaipusam, Maulidur Rasul. Mana taknya. Kira sewa RM13 utk 1 hari. Tapi bila aku pergi survey rumah sewa kt area2 hospital tu harga pun lebih kurang jugak. Dalam RM250++ jugaklah. Rumah takdelah selesa mana. Baik aku duduk dalam hostel UiTM yg super duper cozy ni. Selamat plus selesa gila kot. Meh aku bagi tengok sikit acano rupa hostel dia. Ala2 apartment kateko.
Nampak kan betapa selesanya lahai duduk sini. Macam homestay pun ada. Macam hotel pun ada jugak. Berbaloilah dengan sewa banyak camtu. Lagipun standard lah belah2 Selangor ke KL ke sewa camtu. Biasalah waktu ni aku pun first time sewa2 rumah ni.
So conclusion dia, praktikal ni memang best. Aku rindu betul nak menyembang dengan member satu rumah, dengan staff kt hospital. Memang aku takkan lupa pengalaman praktikal selama 3 bulan ni.
Sweet memories. 18 November ’13 – 7 Februari ’14 ❤
Just one more thing nak ingatkan yang sepanjang praktikal ni kadang-kadang memang ada staff yang akan suruh kita buat kerja yang luar dari bidang kita. Macam aku dulu, kena susun fail kertas, shred paper dari pagi sampai petang, kikis ais dalam peti sejuk dan macam-macam lagi. Jangan mengamuk pulak. Kena faham yang semua staff busy dan takde masa nak buat kerja yg remeh-temeh sebab tu budak praktikal selalu dipanggil. Hahaha.
My own advice, pilihlah tempat praktikal yang sediakan elaun such as tempat-tempat industri macam Sime Darby. Lagi berbaloi kalau ada gaji. Then, tengok jugak tempat tinggal. Kalau boleh survey cukup-cukup dulu sampai puas hati. Ok itu jelah kot. Anything boleh email jelah ye.
There’s nothing can be compared to the precious time you enjoyed wasting with your best friends. Not to mention if there’s a bunch of them willing to spend their time together with you. My all time besties since in the boarding school had became my forever clique and I bet you I can share anything with them. After the school ended, we went through separate ways to continue our studies but that is not a big problem yet we would met at least once a year to hang out and catching up everything.
So yeah. After a few months, we decided to go out and had fun! For the first time, we went to AEON mall in Klebang, Ipoh which also the biggest one in Perak and its new! What I love about this place is there are so many walls full with different types of wallpapers specifically for taking photos. OMG. There’s a lot, guys and they are amazing.
This interesting place also full with colourful mini bulb chairs so you always have time to relax. There is one shop specifically for house decorations and other stuff called Kaison. I think I started to be a huge fan of this Kaison. It fulls with awesome and unique things! Especially for those who are minimalistic like I do, you better take your feet here.
The price is extremely reasonable! Looking forward to be here again. At this point, we were starving so we picked a place to eat. Surprise, surprise, we choose you, Boat Noodle!
Welcome to the food paradise! These are basically Thai food and the noodles are made of rice. What can I say, I love these spoons of magic. Technically, the little bowl only full with about a spoonful of the noodles, a slice of beef/chicken meat and also a fishball, I guess. Due to the small quantity for each bowl, we decided to order 5 bowls of noodle per person. The price is only RM1.90 per bowl. You can choose either beef or chicken and each of them has two flavour; creamy and non-spicy also sour-spicy taste. For me, all the flavours are acceptable and super duper yummeh. I love all of them. There are also other types of food you might picked besides these noodles.
For the drink, there are so many choices and I picked Iced Green Tea which is now I think have become my favourite. The quantity of the drink is quite satisfying because of the big-sized plastic container. The price for my drink is RM6.90.
This is mine. Oh yeah! This is my very first time trying this and finally I know how to use a chopstick. Noob. Hahaha. I’ve finished all five bowls and to top that, I managed to eat another two because my friends won’t able to finish it off. Summing up to 7 bowls for me. Hahaha.
Aini and Athirah. They look so happy eating these noodles yet each of them cannot finished one bowl each. Hahahaha.
Fina, Athilah and me. We were so jakun and batak for eating these for the very first time ever. Hahaha.
Finish it offfffffffff!!!
We really had a great time together. Looking forward for another date, guys! Love you ❤
Last weekend, one of my high school buddy (who is also in my trouble-maker team), Baie, came here to Shah Alam all the way from Puncak Alam. Yeah, she’s a Palamians now. Congratulations babe for your new entrance as a degree student! You’re officially one of us! Hahaha. Seriously, one day is not enough and I’m hoping that you’re enjoy your stay. 🙂
To spend more time together while enjoying the weekend, we’ve decided to go to NU Sentral by the train. This is my third time hop on this high-techie ‘centipede’ and I was excited as usual. Hahahaha. Such a noob.
Enjoying my ride inside the ladies’ coach like a boss or may I say an antisocial boss. Hahaha. I guess that I’m gonna be like Sheldon Cooper who loves train ride a lot. 😛 As we reached KL Sentral, I admit that I’m such a person who just escaped from a cave or whatever. For the first time, I saw there were so many people here and there. I also have no idea that NU Sentral was basically inside the KL Sentral. Double noob.
Trying a Japanese Cuisine, Tori Katsu for the first time ever in my life was such an awesome eating experience. It had changed my whole food-trying records. I was a little bit hesitate to try it out as I’m worried that the taste will be terrible. I was wrong. It was extremely a delightful taste! It consists of a breaded, deep-fried chicken cutlet one to two centimeters thick and sliced into bite-sized pieces or strips, generally served with shredded cabbage and miso soup. Everything was perfect except for the miso soup which did not catch my taste when I take a sip of it alone but it was good eating together with the rice and chicken. The warm green tea is included in the set and the taste was actually acceptable. The price for overall set is MYR12.90.
Enjoy the photos! 😛
Thanks for coming, Baie. I had such a great time trying new things and thanks again for being one of besties. Hope this friendship would never end! Come again next time please. ❤
