Facelift

Tonight's internet connection was rather slow, blamed it on the Taiwan's earth quake.
Over the weekends, spent some 8 hours online, learning and designing my blog.

And, this was how it appeared in Internet Explorer. Damnit.

Read about handsome surgeons and ugly physicians in BMJ.

Meanwhile, saw this shocking video in DBI. Hoax?

Hot sunny Sunday

Breezy night

While our friends in the southern part are having sleepless nights due to flood, we in the northern part are enjoying a breezy night with clear sky tonight. What a wonderful weather to spend this Xmas.

Just finished my evening round at midnight, and I received a call from a friend to go for supper. My friend just came back from KL for the Xmas weekends and we headed to his favorite Wan Than Mee in Terengganu Road. This so-called 'famous' Wan Than Mee was so-so only for me. I gave it, 7/10. So, which one is still the best?

I still go for the one next door.

Never judge the biscuits by the tin cover

Bought this tin of biscuits in Tesco some time ago during cheap sale for RM6.60. Real munchy huh, Choc-O, Rich-O, Smiley & Soccer, Romeo, Chess.....

Today, I opened it, and these were what I got. Bloody hell!! No Choc-O, no Rich-O, no Smiley & Soccer, no Romeo, no Chess..... What I got were some real "cheap biscuits". Got cheated! Damn you Munchy's!

The Nagore Place

Passed through this place, a place where I spent part of my early childhood living here, now rejuvenated and rebranded the Nagore Place.

Xmas soon


One of my busiest call, 2 patients collapsed near the same time. The whole hospital had no ventilator left. The old lady with severe sepsis died eventually on a portable ventilator. The young lady who presented with severe headache, was intubated. Later, she was found to have a massive intraventricular bleed.

In the midst of all the "tension", I saw this Xmas tree with the blinking lights.

New Medical Diagnosis


Today, I "took over" one very irritating referal from a private doctor, "for further Mx". The letter was written in a short and small 2 pages of paper, with a list of problems, one of which was "Abnormal Ba meal examination". Ye, a new "medical diagnosis" I supposed.

No detail descriptions/investigations/results or what-so-ever attached. What happen to our professionalism nowadays? No courtesy at all. Expect me (and subject the patient) to full and complete history taking/physical examination/investigation again? In my daily busy clinic?

HKB

Went to HKB today for a-day course in Primary Dermatology.
First time been here, the only MOH hospital with a Unit Perubatan Tradisional.

Generally, I was very impressed with this hospital. Spacious.

Clean and comfortable.

Beautiful buildings with lifts..

Beautiful landscape.

Herba garden, wow.

Kepala Batas town.

Most joyious thing was, I won myself a book, written by a dermatologist from Hospital Selayang. Really salute her for her so enthusiastic effort in promoting education in dermatology for the healthcare workers. She had written 2 books and an atlas of common dermatological diseases. Unfortunately, those books were not for sale (cause they are published by MOH not meant to make profit).

Biggest and Longest

New happening in Penang Island.

Dengue outbreak?

Looked like this building was on fire, but no, it was due to fogging. There has been almost daily fogging over here due to a surge of many dengue cases been notified for the past two weeks.
