let's think about it


Pernah sekali pensyarahku(ni mestilah Pakar) bertanya:

"How to differentiate between face presentation and breech presentation?"

Seorang amatur(saya la ni :P) pun jawab: Breech lembut, sebab ada buttocks.

Pensyarah: Unreliable. Pipi baby pun lembut. Tembam:D

Pelajar: *sigh*. Breech ad lubang- anus.

Pensyarah: Face presentation ada mulut- lubang jugak. *muka puas hati*

Pelajar: *tembak je la*. Face presentation ada dua mata. Breech xde.

Pensyarah: *muka risau*. Takkan awak nk jolok jari awak dalam mata baby tu? Bahaya. You should never poke/apply pressure to the presenting part!

Pelajar: *clueless dan rasa bersalah*

Pensyarah: *sengih*. See? You can never find this in your textbook:)

Walau apa pun, ni jawapan yang diberikan oleh pensyarah tu:

Face: The mouth and the two malar prominences make a triangle.
Breech: The anus and the two ischial tuberosity are in a straight line:)

Dr memang hebat! Jzkk for the knowledge:)

Tambahan pula(penggunaan wacana yg betul), Dr ajar macam mana nk bezakan tangan atau kaki bayi.

Tangan Kaki
longer digits(jari panjang) shorter digits(jari pendek)
wrist(flexible) heel(quite fixed-cannot extend much)
The fingers grasp The toes cannot grasp
*Large angle **Acute angle

*refers to angle between the thumb and index finger
**refers to angle between big toe and the second toe

Hmm, kalau nk ikutkan, xde kaitan langsung dengan tajuk kn? Tajuk tu sebenarnya nk khabarkan betapa Allah ciptakan kita dengan sebanyak2 hikmah yg mungkin kita tak terfikir langsung. Maklumat kat atas tu mungkin mudah dan senang difahami tapi tidakkah semua itu mustahil tanpa pengetahuan anatomi dan logik akal? dan siapakah empunya pengetahuan anatomi ni? Siapa yang ciptakan akal yang hanya ada pada makhluk bergelar manusia ni? tentulah Allah, dan saya bersyukur kerana Allah bagi pinjam sikit kat saya. Semoga ilmu ini menjadi manfaat buat saya dan orang sekeliling. Benarlah kata Allah, pada diri kita ni banyak tanda2 keagungan-Nya. Moga kita menjadi hamba mentaati dan bersyukur pada-Nya.

Dan di bumi itu terdapat tanda-tanda (kekuasaan Allah) bagi orang-orang yang yakin. dan (juga) pada dirimu sendiri. Maka apakah kamu tidak memperhatikan?

On the earth are signs for those of assured Faith, As also in your own selves: Will ye not then see?

(Adz-Dzariyat: 20-21)

Siapalah kita tanpa kebergantungan pada Allah yang Maha Kuasa. Subhanallah, He is the Greatest!

Credits goes to Dr Kadir for the knowledge and his enthusiasm in teaching :)

Memories are meant to be treasured

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.

My posting now officially ends. Of course, I am already in the study w
eek. Now comes the marathon of the two postings. Thus, I would like to compile the lessons I learnt from my lecturers throughout these few weeks. Perhaps some are missing, for I might have forgotten them and before the rest get faded away, let me engrave them in this little world of mine.

Homework need to be done on the same day. If not, you failed as a student!.
Hmm... well said. I have been trying to accomplish the above, but it was not successful every time. I don't want to be a CaTakSeruKin(cakap tak serupa bikin) but I thing this tips(or threat? :P ) is very useful.

You are not being systematic at all. You need to learn how to do things systematically so you won't miss any important points.

Early innocent days. Indeed, when you do things systematically, you will find it easier and thus, you feel more confident in yourself! (which is vital for a medical student)

Make yourself useful.
You can sit silent at the side and observe things while waiting for instructions. However, if you know that you can actually help, why don't you? You get the chance to do things, to experience something your friend may not be able to and perhaps, impress your lecturer!(This are just extra benefits, let's get our niat sincere:) )
Always be humble. You can always learn from other people even if you are already a consultant.
You might not believe me but the person who said this is already a senior consultant. Allah is always the Greatest, whatever you have is granted by Him, everything you know is bestowed upon you by Allah. In the end, everything belongs to Allah. O Allah, please let me be among those who love to share knowledge and allowed oneself to be taught and not among those who are arrogant and selfish.

Being a medical student is to build the database you are going to use later.
I always think that the lecturers are expecting too much but I should know things that I should know right? There is no excuse for that. To be a doctor who heals rather than kills,
then it is a must for me to know more rather than less right? O Allah, make me among those who undoubtedly have faith in You, endlessly seek for Your blessings in everything I put my effort into and never make me among those who give up and lose hope.

Do the correct thing from the start.
This advice might not be applicable to everyone, since one might have made a mistake(like me T,T ). However, you should not repeat the same mistake and if possible, learn from other people mistake's too. Improve yourself!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
You might not need a surgeon to tell you this, but who knows this might be your survival
tips later on, especially when you hardly have time for yourself :)

I have never liked teaching.
This statement is totally contradictory to who the surgeon really is. He is always dedicated towards his students and has been sharing endless tips every second he gets the chance to do so! This just made into one of my favourite memories :) Nevertheless, never make a teacher says this and means it!

So far, I have never found a student who says that he wants to become a neurosurgeon because he really likes the brain.
This might have no impact to you but to me, it means a lot. Old stories.
It seems to me that you are not learning at all!
From the sound of it, you are sure that this is a scolding right? Indeed. Moral of the story, you need to learn because of Allah(ikhlas) but your teacher's blessings is important too. Don't piss them off or disappoint them. They deserve your respect and more importantly, you owe them the good result they would like to see after they spent their time and effort to teach you!(a warning for myself)

The last message from my beloved supervisor:
"Can you stand out in the next medical posting? You need to improve yourself."
I'm sure this tells you that I had done poorly in my last posting :( but lessons learnt. Be an active learner. Volunteer yourself. Never be ashamed of trying. Share knowledge. InsyaAllah Doctor, I will improve myself!

Even when you think you had done your best, there is always room for improvement. That is why no one is perfect!
Ya Allah yang menguasai hati, tetapkan hatiku dalam agama-Mu, dalam mentaati-Mu dan di atas jalan-Mu.

~a comeback~

Peace be upon those who seek Guidance and Blessings from the Almighty

It had been a while since I kept the promise made to myself- to update this blog once a month. Yup, since the last entry, it was three months which nearly made up my whole semester. A crap one, I would say. A crap semester full with crap performance and excuses, just like a crab failing to walk straight. Countless reflections were done but nothing seems to change. Why is this??? I am truly sorry for such negativity but at this moment in time, I feel the urge to voice this out so that it would dawn on me that I am not good at all, far from being even a mediocre student. In a way, this is to tell the world that I am still in the quest of becoming a better person and I am not who you think I am.

All this while, nonsense had been going on and I have never been able to shut off such nonsense. 'Top student', 'cream of the cream' and all other labels had been stuck to the medical students(I am actually talking about myself) like shadows. If these labels were indeed true, they would be the greatest booster for our motivation but if the truth is the opposite, it feels like death sentence. Let me give an example:['You just bought a look-alike iPhone 5 because you could not afford the real one. Everyone around you are so impressed and awed by that 'iP5' you owned. Despite of telling them that the 'iP5' you owned is just a counterfeit, they insisted it is the original.] Hmmmm..... what to say? people just won't believe your words(never mind, above all, Allah always knows =D ).

I hope you won't absorb this negativity as it is, but use it to create positive energy in you. Just like what I am doing and always doing, hopefully, I would be able to endure the worst of all. A boost of motivation I got from someone who had helped a lot along the way:

"Don’t be too downhearted about the difficulties you are facing, both with your English and the medical course. All serious study is like that and what seems impossibly difficult now will be so easy for you in a couple of years’ time.

Best wishes"

Yup, best wishes everyone. Just like this title, I wish to make a comeback, to be my good and worthful 'self' again...

"And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him a way out; And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah - then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent."(at-Talaq: 2-3)

"Our Lord, grant us from Yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair right guidance." (al-Kahf: 10)
