cold, but i still melt for you

Subhanallah ^^

Out of my window
You fall~

Tap tap
Softly on the glass

Tap tap 
Softly on the hand I've reached outside


Roasted chestnuts

Especially when warm and fresh 
To accompany a winter's night ^^

Owh and my housemate and I round "Rambutan Juice" and it tastes like lychee. Ha! Still, lychee tastes good too! 

:) Hows your winter?

she who grabbed hold of the cat

So I finally got hold of 'the' cat. 'The' being that it's the only pet cat I know here in Prague. 


Only, the downside is, it made me miss Prince Ellie more than ever~

I can't wait for holidays for a much needed rest cause the body is down with the flu. Surviving though! :) 

Come Saturday I shall start the sleep-eat-heal regime :D

Ellie. Ellie really looks like that dragon from "How to Train Your Dragon". His face lah. And he's a giant compared to Meeko. Memanglah seekor kucing jantan. Hehe. 

Ohkay, now to get back to sTomatology. Come on you! Berusahaaa!

for a friend

To Kak Liyana ^^
This was made at Karlovo Namesti, Praha 2, Czech Republic.
Sorry, I tak ada camera DSLR, ada camera 3.2MPix Nokia je >.< 
Enjoy the snow~

pitter patter

White winter. 

Wear warm, and you'll stop bickering and start appreciating.

Be nice. 
It is never out of style.

I heart winter ^^

snow is here!!!

(Thamarai and I)

Or rather, it has been here for sometime. Hee~
And I'm enjoying every bit of it.

How to keep yourself warm, cozy and happy during winter? (Not listed according to priority)
1. Wear many layers of warm clothing. Opt for wool, fleece, thermal wears; those really comfy ones on the inside, before putting on the mega winter jacket! This would refrain you from being so noisy, complaining about the weather whilst outside.
2.Wear a beanie. Keeps the ear and head warm. Ears don't fall off and the brain won't freeze.  
3. Wear thick socks to keep 'em toes warm. Or be prepared for pain if you're up for a long walk. Yikes. 
4. Wear waterproof shoes (wet - means a faster process with frostbite!) with good friction. This would avoid having to grip/press with your plantar onto the ground to remain stable. It also ensures that you don't slip and fracture your precious skeleton or bleed due to injury of a vessel. Gets you to class on time too! 
5. Be well hydrated. It's cold and we don't feel thirsty like summer, but yeah, it's so dry that you actually lose lotsa water. Drink lots. Cause once you start coughing, it may very well be the first signs of bronchitis. :(
6. Moisten yourself with body lotion/body butter/baby oil. Whichever best for you! A skin too dry is susceptible to cuts even from doing simple things such us unzipping your winter coats. 
7. Have a source of warmth with you. I don't usually carry hot drinks wherever I go, but with winter such as this one, perhaps it is time to consistently do that. Or really, if you're too cold, go and have a snow fight with friends. This helps me a lot. Wear waterproof gloves for a more enjoyable adventure :P Hehe. 
8. At home, although there is the heater, it doesn't necessarily provide as much heat as we would like, so go on, put those socks on! Wear hoodies! And a warm tea every now and then seems a good idea. >.^
9. Be among friends. They'll keep you happy. Most of the time. If one is not, maybe she has PMS, so run away :P  HEHE. 
10. Check tram schedules. To avoid being late for class. And being the centre of unwanted attention~


Yesterday, me and 2 of the classmates helped a man push his van cause it was immobilised with the deep snow. 
We failed. 
but the fellow said thanks! :)

And yesterday was also educating and funny cause we did some simulations. 
With per rectum examination and ear examination and resuscitation and ABI Bosso and ECG and spirometry and ultrasound and the rest which I don't pay much attention to since we did it before :P

And this weekend = Hoho


Alhamdulillah ^^

15 years

O Allah, thank you. :')

For making it bearable.

Having to survive through it.


Always pray for a happy ending.

No matter how far it may seem from reach.

Pray for the best.

Pray that He ease what is best.

For you.

For me.

For us.

For all of us.

what happened to calming down?

I unnecessarily flung my professor's file and an enveloped document today.
I'm amazed at how immersed I got when answering her question.

I answered, whilst expanding my arms, "It is..." 
And everything on the counter drops.   


>.< wanting to hide face, but I wasn't even at the second question yet! Ha!

Yeah, trust my body to act on its free will at grave times such as an exam. :P 
Alhamdulillah cikgu tak marah or anything of the sort! Heee~ ^^

Today is stochastic :D

Monday, November 22, 2010

I was reminded that some people can be really mean.
And the effect of that being mean can be really painful.

I too can be mean at times.
I hope I realise I was being mean.
Then I could apologise.

Before it is too late.

I'm sorry! Prominte! Minta maaf! 

Anyway, speaking of pain, have you ever felt pseudo angina pectoris? Hehe. I'm recalling some moment in time when I watched some really sad drama (or movie, I can't remember) and my heart and hand hurts so badly. I'm making it sound serious, am I not? Hehe. Chill~ 

The heart is such a fragile little thing. I wish to keep it nourished, with lotsa good things and lotsa happiness ^^ 
Yeah. Lets do just that!

Someone told me I look my age. :) (: Yay!
*the dramatic self twirls*

Ohkay then, chop! chop! Off to nerding~ Wow weeeeee~

Salam everyone!

raya haji ^^

Eid mubarak! :)

This year, we learned a bit of history.

And the difference between sumbangan (contribution) and pengorbanan (sacrifice).

And Abah MMSed me a photo. To which I couldn't MMS back cause I didn't activate my MMS function. Ha! I thought I was really behind technology and that I needed a new phone. (Guess this one will do for a really long time!)

I thought that Puan, Tuan, En Muzambli, Kak Ida, Mikail and Iman totally made it like a kampung raya. It's like having your aunties and uncles and little cousins (and the many many "cousins" i.e. other students!)

Thanks Kak Alia + husband, Kak Sharifah, Kak Adilah and Aqilah for the treat! ^^ It sure made the week more interesting and meaningful! 

Alhamdulillah ^^

i miss you so


That me and you, we are in speaking term again. 

Of course it means a lot to me.

Before that phone call

Life has been hectic

I haven't the time to reminisce

That farewell we choose to miss.

In the midst of the hustle,


My heart would weep

Everytime I see on the street

Child and father

Walk hand in hand

Say words of goodbye

Carrying her little bag


Father and child

Jealousy :P

Did I mentioned, how happy I am,

Now that we are talking again?

Alhamdulillah ^^

I wanna kidnap Hazim's (junior) cat for a day but Mama said I should refrain from getting too friendly with furry beings. (retort: I survived just fine~)

I am missing Prince Ellie. :'(

I hope to be able to settle exams well. 

Then I can really contribute at home.

Have a proper holiday.

As a daughter, sister, friend, cousin etc.

Ohkay! Back to work work work~

Monday, November 01, 2010

november already

Salam all ^^ how have you been? 
Good? Alhamdulillah.
Not good? Alhamdulillah, and insyaAllah, lets pray for better moments in life to come. 

Tonight, I am indulging Old Town White Coffee with music put on at really slow volume and on the medical student level, reading and writing cardiovascular pharmacology.

This came last week ^^ Wee~ 
I know I should reduce my 3in1 consumption, probably not on the ones which have just arrived. :P Because I love coffee so so much! And it's OLD TOWN WHITE COFFEE kot! Haha!

As for putting on music at the-lowest-possible-volume-my-ear-could-detect, it's a training to make my ear more sensitive to sounds. Maybe I could auscultate better that way? Who knows? 

One thing for sure, head-banging-dance songs are much more tolerable this way. ^^ 

We have a test coming for Pharmaco. On CVS. I still have 5 questions to draft out :P 
CVS pharmaco is much more acceptable when Prof Natasa (Natasha) told us to list them drugs nicely in a schedule. 
It made clear the difference of the groups of drug that work to give the same effect (well, almost the same effect). 
She is one intelligent woman! 
*googles intelligent*

Intelligent, bright, brilliant, knowing, quick witted, smart, intellectual. 
The difference?

These adjectives mean having or showing mental keenness. Intelligentusually implies the ability to cope with new problems and to use the power of reasoning and inference effectively: The intelligent math students excelled in calculus. Bright implies quickness or ease in learning: The bright child learned the alphabet quickly. Brilliant suggests unusually impressive mental acuteness: "The dullard's envy of brilliant men is always assuaged by the suspicion that they will come to a bad end" (Max Beerbohm). Knowingimplies the possession of knowledge, information, or understanding:Knowing collectors bought all the auctioned paintings. Quick-wittedsuggests mental alertness and prompt response: The quick-witted emergency medical staff averted a tragedy. Smart refers to quick intelligence and often a ready capability for taking care of one's own interests:Smart lawyers can effectively manipulate juries. Intellectual implies the capacity to grasp difficult or abstract concepts: Dinner at the philosopher's house was noted for its intellectual conversations. 

credit: and Prof Payne for telling me those wonderful explanation of intelligent :D


My younger sister, Min is taking her SAM exam now (this week and next). :) Lets all pray for her success eyh?

the challenge

I've had too much processed food and drink of late. 
And true, my body isn't actually agreeing with that routine. 

I guess I won't be up front talking about what's wrong with the food system but this Birke Baehr child is really a gem. 

How far a distant would one go, to uncover truths so as not to fall into traps? 

Kyaaa~ How could I be wise if I'm not even aware of what I eat/drink/do everyday?

Owh dearie me~



Things to do, towards a healthy living insyaAllah :)

Cut down on the processed food.

Cook instead of snack! Try to pack food to class! Believe that you can do that! It is simple!

Cut down on 3 in 1s.

And most of all, be more aware of what you do!

Salam all!

i shall wear midnight

It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you're going. And if you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.


In the book "I Shall Wear Midnight" by Terry Pratchett, Tiffany Aching was taught about taking it slow. 
And it's quite interesting how her "I'm marrying you" turned out in reality for Tiffany Aching.  
Hows that for a book review? :P


As for health go, I think I ate less than what I did on weekends, which result in fatigue now :P which isn't so good cause I have an exam coming soon. Yipes. 

So dear me, sila makan secukupnya bila dah tahu ada aktiviti-aktiviti luar kebiasaan yang akan dilakukan di masa hadapan (please eat adequately if you've in your schedule other activities in future). And everyone else too! Please take care of yourselves with enough food. Hehe. 


Have a GREAT week everyone, have a BLAST!

Wednesday: Meeting a friend at CH. Where coffee is loved, ciggies banned! Muahahaha!

All About Your Heart

Mindy Gledhill, Kendra Lowe
© Blue Morph Music 2010 (BMI), Kendra Lowe (ASCAP)

I don't mind your odd behavior
It's the very thing I love
If you were an ice cream flavor
You would be my favorite one

My imagination sees you
Like a painting by Van Gogh
Starry nights and bright sunflowers
Follow you where you may go

Oh, I've loved you from the start
In every single way
And more each passing day
You are brighter than the stars
Believe me when I say
It's not about your scars
It's all about your heart

You're a butterfly held captive
Small and safe in your cocoon
Go on you can take your time
Time is said to heal all wounds


Like a lock without a key
Like a mystery without a clue
There is no me if I cannot have you



I find this song very sweet and luverly~ ^^
Go google it! 
You can get a free mp3 from her website too! 

Thank you Miss Best Friend for the recommendation! :)

school, i feel you~

This week has been tiring. 

I think Psychology, Ethics and Anatomy has increased my age by 10 years.



My brain capacity has been drained or rather, turned edematous with the myriad of random facts poured in forcefully these past few days :P

You know how people depict a well functioning brain as having "juice", well mine is now probably multivitamin juice, you know, the kind where they blend in all types of fruits.

Lets hope whatever organised mess there is in my brain would unclutter well and could be verbally delivered tomorrow. 





Kekeke ^^

Struggle this one last night before we wrap this week and snuggle comfortably on the bed with a good non-MED-school book, and yummy hot drink~

At least for 3 hours. :) The snuggling, that is. 

InsyaAllah :)

the calf muscles cry

Our owner, it was terrible
How you led us into this trouble

Of all things you're not capable
Being clumsy is the most unacceptable

In that cold cold atmosphere
Oh my, how we suffer

24! 9! 

Why must you run after trams?
Did you not think of the cramps?

Why oh why love
Forgot you, the stove?

That indeed you switched off
Long before you went off?


I have this repeating fear that I have left something switched on in the house, when in actual fact, I did turned them off before I leave.

And today, my mind was haunted with the fact that I may not have switched off the hot plate. *Fantasising the house and some fire trucks, policemen, dr madle's insurance representatives. Ha ha ha.*

To accidentally leave the hot plate on without any utensils on top wouldn't have agitate me so, but today, I remember that the frying pan was placed there because I planned to fry an egg this morning (which I didn't as I found something else to eat) and didn't put the pan away. 

Later in class (and what do you know, the professor was talking about OCD today :P) I couldn't concentrate and had to head back to check if the house was still in one piece. (I heard that the professor demonstrated some disgustingly interesting things when I was away. T.T rugi tak tengok, what to do? Anxiety took hold of me leh. :( ) 

Anyway, today was pretty much sprinting, laughing and calming down (whilst on tram), more sprinting, which slows to a run when my heart felt like it was going to explode, laughing again since the house is intact and yeah, the stove was definitely wasn't an active volcano waiting to explode! I DID switched it off :P

This little OCD(click!) of mine. I hope you don't have plans to make life more dramatic for me eyh!  

My calf muscles are crying now :'( 
Lactate acidosis kot. 

Alhamdulillah, though it was tiring but definitely adventurous! 

(Dan di saat ini, I know exam is near but tonight, let me sleep more hours ya!)

Friday, October 01, 2010

nyeh heh

I bumped into this couple on my way to get some glue and binding rings in town.

Pajamas in broad daylight!

Like oh so random!  

As absurd as I feel I sometimes am, I don't think I'd ever pull this act. :)

(Though it was definitely a head turner, one coupled with a smile. ^^)

charmander, I summon you!

It has been getting a lil' too cold around here. And the non functioning heater is making things worse :P Meh. 

There's the electric heater but one senior told me it's gonna cost us so much if we turn it on frequently so I'd probably switch it on when other methods of keeping own self warm won't be of help. 

Good thing there's the layering option. (i.e. wearing many layers of garments)


Charmander is a Pokemon by the way, a dragon that spits fire. 

An ideal release from a Pokeball in times such as this one ;)


Kak Syifa told me that her mom told her, if a cat enters your dream, it's a sign that it misses you. Do cats dream of us when we miss it? 

Oh ponder. Ponder.

:'( I'm missing Ellie so miserably. And like any human beings, I only realised it when Ellie's not near. 

Ellie is now in home, Malaysia. A cat that - is potty trained, purrs well, bathe weekly (he smells oh so nice!), knows how to give leg massage, catch flies. He is also a good listener. Ha!



Oh so sedih!

family day

So we went a little somewhere during the summer break.

Wanna know a bit about my family?

Click here!!!

Alhamdulillah for the experience ^^

Terima kasih daun keladi Cikgu Yana!

oh you!

School is about to start.
And truth be told, I have been very hyper lately.

Must take it slow.
ATP supply mustn't be depleted when school starts for real!

a thing or two or more

Alhamdulillah ^^

Life's little journey seems to be filled with many surprising happenings.
It's good that it gives less room to slack (though I still make many mistakes).

A bit of the emotional quotient got fixed, with the help of a friend and a little conscience.
I could do with more tips on how to make others happy. :P
I'm such an amateur!


I have yet another exam to go with.

So it's back to reading, processing and plastering.

Pray for our (us students') success and well being here ^^
That would help lots.


For we are nothing without Allah.
I wouldn't know how to manage life without Him.

Salam :)

hot head, literally

Salam all~


The heat is no joke around here. O.o

I'd almost diagnose myself with giant cell arteritides. Kekeke ^^

Staying still at home seems best option this time of the year.


A KTT friend told me, when God let you experience things, it's because He's giving you a message.

Before complaining, think, what is He trying to tell you?

Alhamdulillah for the advice.

Believing that Allah is good helps to lighten many many things.

It's in a way, zikrullah. ^^ Subhanallah, how He helps us to always remember.

Alhamdulillah for the interesting roads in life.

It allows one to be more matured everyday. ^^


As for Corrie, lets pray it'll arrive safely. Update: Docked at Ashdod now :(. No injuries reported.
Now for the Jewish boat aid. Hopefully, all humanitarian aid would reach Gaza safely and that the activists won't face another Gaza Flotilla. :'(

*Pray pray pray*

Friday, June 04, 2010


Has a calming effect.



I was indirectly influenced to start drawing again - non anatomical kind ;) - hence the cartoons-with-shaky-lines. (Lets hope it'll improve with time. ^^)

Alhamdulillah, today marked the last day of school. At the same time also meaning -> it's exam period baybee~ *insert flabbergasted icon*

Credits on Skype. Check.
Motivational books. Check.
Things to prevent sleeping. Check.
Medication. Check.
(Owh ya, I now carry an inhaler around. It feels cool. Haha. Doink. :P )
Friends to talk to. Check.

And most of all -> prayers.
*Do pray a lot! For you have your plans, and He has greater plans. Pray that you'll be ready to accept whatever has been written!*


It's not enough to visualise a dream.
You must make it practical.
Make it come true.

The higher you aim, the more you have to put in!
Don't settle, strive for more! ^^ It's always worth it!


Owh terlebih semangat pulak this nenek ^^

However, before I go, reblogging a video from Kak Syamira's blog:

Salam peeps and all the best!

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

spread the news!

An interesting read. (Click here)

I personally think it's important to spread the news on the structured cruelty of Israel.

Because most of us are good people with moral conscience.

This loss serves as a reminder for us all to UNITE.

For what I can do is miniscule compared to what WE can do, as one.

Spread the news, and have that spirit to help the oppressed.
Keep that spirit burning inside of you and promote peace.
Train your heart to hate what is evil.
So that you have no doubts in recognising what is evil and no doubts to sacrifice yourself to prevent it.

Good people versus villains. History taught us, that it has always been that way.

And lets pray that we're ALWAYS on the right side.

It'll be a long fight. It'll hurt a lot but it's worth it.

Remember self, stay focus!

Israeli troops storm Gaza flotilla

There used to be a video here, depicting how Israeli troops were taking charge of Gaza flotilla.

Civilians on the boat were really calm and non threatening unlike what was spread by the Israeli media.

*Insert many swear words* Israeli troops. Pfft!

And stupid stupid media for disallowing the truth to surface. Stupid heads. Urgh.


I don't have weapons to go against you except for my prayers.

One day, you'll all have to pay for what inhuman crimes you did. It's a written promise.

And on that day, there is NOTHING you can do to slither out of it.

No conquering the media.

No spinning webs of lies.

Even your big fat weapons of mass destruction won't save you.

You'll suffer. Big time.


Allahuakbar! God is Almighty!

surviving fear

"We stand at the crossroads, each minute, each hour, each day, making choices. We choose the thoughts we allow ourselves to think, the passions we allow ourselves to feel, and the actions we allow ourselves to perform. Each choice is made in the context of whatever value system we've selected to govern our lives. In selecting that value system, we are, in a very real way, making the most important choice we will ever make."

Benjamin Franklin

Fight on people!

Try our best to think, feel, do, the goods which are right. ^^

We'll make it through insyaAllah.

T.T real man cries in his heart


One definitely shouldn't act mean towards sick people.

They have enough grief to deal with in a given moment already. :P

Sedangkan kata-kata simpati dapat melukakan (read article here), apatah lagi kata-kata berunsur kemarahan.

Be reminded Nora!

*okay. back to being happy* ^^

adapting changes

Salam peeps ^^

Pathology taught the importance of our body to make the right adaptation when it's assaulted.

i.e. bleeding should lead to coagulation at the bleeding site, and not DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation), which would harm the patient with more bleeding :(

Likewise in living life, it's very important to adapt correctly to changes.

i.e. for oncologic patients, the difference between acceptance (when they cooperate actively) and resignation (when they cooperate passively) is death
*from Psychology class :P, based on the Kubler Ross' 5 stages of grief -> anyone wanting to come out with 5 stages of happiness? I'm sure the world could benefit from it ^^*


I'm adapting to some changes (I'm sure everybody is :P) and hopefully they'd all go well~

Yee haa~

Now lets get to studying ^^

"O Allah, please make ease for what is best. Amin."

love light

CN Blue's Love Light is sweet~

^^ happy happy


Alhamdulillah today the presentation went well~

I didn't know till then that seperation of group by gender would cause so much competition (or was it the prize chocolate that brought people to strive?) :P

Definitely entertaining (at least I think so ^^)


The daily reminder page put up on Facebook today:

"The short distance between a problem and it's solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. The one who knees to Allah (swt) can stand up to anything.. May Allah Grant us all strength Ameen"

Me likey. Short and sweet~
Turn to Him, for He has the best solution!

With that, good day and peace ^^

clean your house

People should pretty much understand at a very young age, the importance of cleanliness.

That making a house fit to live in is vital and pleases many eyes and consequently, manyhearts.

Keeping a house clean at all times would require every member of the household to provide what strength and dedication they have to consistenly rid the house of dirt and debris.

Cleanliness is half of faith. <- You may click to further read about the hadeeth. (Sahih Muslim, Book 2, Number 0432)

How is cleaning good for us:
1. Prevents unnecessary hospital visits. (Attacks from heavy dust, contaminated food, toys lying around)
2. Gives a calming effect. What is good in the eyes, calms the heart.
3. Prevents unnecessary breeding of insects.
4. Prevents unnecessary 1-day-clean-the-house-till-it's-squeaky-clean.
5. Provide an environment fit for living.
6. People would respect you.

How is cleaning good for the rest of the world:
1. All of the above
2. Make the world a better place to live in.

I admit that the cleaning isn't done so frequently here like it was in Malaysia but Alhamdulillah, thank you housemates for being definitely-clean. ^^ Wee hoo~ Kebersihan tanggungjawab bersama.

To a squeaky clean house:
1. Have all necessities (mop, brush, wipes, detergent -all types, broom)
2. Have all members of house participating in housework - this is very important! Squeaky clean house mission would fail if only 1 out of 5 members is squeaky clean!
3. Consistently perform your duty! (Take note that some areas require more frequent tidying up, e.g. kitchen, dining room, bedroom!)

Our house is practically a small Masjid for we pray in it everyday! Everybody, lets strive for cleanliness~ woot2~

Another random reminding note,
Nora ^^

1, 2, 3 what do I see?

1. Dream outside the box

I've thought of what to do alongside being a doctor.

A farmer.

It'd be so cool to eat home grown food :) (:
(Secretly hoping there are lots of veggie grown at Malaysia home. ^^ Kangkung fresh adalah sangat sedap. Ulam. Nyum~ *Owh it rhymes!)

Yee haaaaa~

Getting there means going through whatever hurdle there is right now! I.e. exams. Lets strive hard people! Yosh!

2. Parents know best

Though they often disagree with one another :P. Having been under the care of dear parents, us children has probably grown immune to the many many restrictions (especially the daughters). It took years to find out what good those restrictions are for, Alhamdulillah we did. ^^ Sorry to have sulked and complained (ade ke? :P) but yeah, now we are old enought to directly ask of the whys (if we don't already know it, the reason that is).

3. A reminder: Terima kasih akak boss! ^^ -the goodly life-
Content: People always say, think before you act, but exactly what should you think of? Find the answer here! (InsyaAllah ^^)

Hope it helps!
That is all for today :)
Salam everyone!
