0 It's Nearly May, Means Exam Is Approaching

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

May is equal to exam marathon and reading medical books intensively. The most important thing is feeling of being a real doctor because only during this time normally students will understand well of what they've learnt in the whole year. Haha.

Speaking about the exam, it reminds me to the examination system nowadays especially used by conventional-system university as mine, Cairo University. The system drives and forces students to get the best grade by any means because the only way to have the title 'excellent student' is by getting great result during the exam. No matter how good you are in lecture, only the result can determine your 'excellent'. That's the reality.

For me, being a good doctor and an exam scorer are two different matters. A good doctor is not supposedly an exam scorer and vice versa. To be a good doctor is one thing and being an exam scorer is another thing. Of course, there are some things intersected in between. Not all questions and facts memorized in the exam will be used during practising medicine. There are so many micro things to be remembered in medicine and I am pretty sure that those things are not used as a doctor in a real life. I mean, as a junior doctor. Yet, the more you know the better you are.

To be a good doctor, you must know what is need as a good doctor. Clinical skills, basic examination, basic medical knowledge, etc. To be an exam scorer you need a good memory and a good preparation during the exam, you can even be a scorer although you remember nothing for the rest of the year. As long as you get prepared, you will have flying colors result. So, make a choice. Which want do you prefer, an exam scorer or a good doctor, or even both. I never say being a scorer is bad, just being only a scorer is bad because you only have the knowledge during certain period of time. At the end of the day, you can't apply it in life. You can't answer questions because you don't read the particular part yet.

My exam will officially start on 30 April 2014, Pharmacology practical exam. Please pray for me.

0 The Wooden Crutches

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the abyss of darkness,
I stand up, try to stand still,
Fall, get up, fall, get up,
And the cycle keeps repeating.

Comes a group of people with a new hope,
Bringing along crutches,
A new strength,
A new spirit.

With the crutches,
I am no longer need the people,
I could stand by my own feets,
I thought.

Termites favour the wooden crutches,
Eaten day by day,
The osteoporotic woods have no more profit,
Left with their plastic arm.

Other people are still standing,
With the crutches,
Oh, it is fully metal.

No room to look for others,
Everything is inside,
It is me,
Either I want or otherwise.

1 You Do Because You Have To Do It

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

When you are doing something, please ask yourself why are you doing such thing. You can't just do it without any clear aim. Unless you really want to waste your time. I can't say more if it does.

I didn't attend SC last few weeks, more than twice I think. My SC members were really great, they concerned about me and asked me where did I go. I didn't have any answer other than I had some other works to be done. They were not statisfied with my answer and felt a bit unpleasant with my doing.

So then I asked him, "Why do you go to SC?"

He said, "You have to feel pity to our mentor. At least we have to support him."

I don't make something because I have extra time nor never to please anyone. I do because I have to do it. If I don't feel the need to do it then probably I don't even think to have any relation with it.

Many people busy themselves to please others. What do they get by doing that? We are only asked to please our God, ain't we?

1 "I Am Damn Serious About This Matter"

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I was scolded by Dr Omayma today and she looked very serious. It was all started when Zofir pressed on my left injured knee, so I responded like I should and that had distracted the doctor. She sharply starred at me like a lion seeing a prey. 

"Why are you laughing? Is there anything funny on me? If it is please tell me so we can laugh together. I have seen you playing in class many times. Tell me or I won't continue the lecture,"

"Erm.. There was nothing doctor, I'm really sorry and won't do it again,"

"If you don't like my class you can go out, I don't care. I am damn serious about this matter,"


The almost same situation I had before with Dr Samira but she was a bit softer. Also, this reminds me to my school era. I made Teacher Zarinah and Ustazah Marzilah cried. It was quite terrible, although it was not completely my fault. Heh. I don't care being scolded by anyone as long as it is my fault. In fact, I am happy if someone reminds me.

Sorry again Dr Omayma. I just can't sit still, it's boring.

0 According To My Former Self I Should Have Been Better Than My Current Self

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The title has been long enough to know the essence of this writing, just like the title of Indonesian drama. Lulz.

I became matured at the age that I think a bit earlier than others, 16. Matured I mean started to think about life, what will you be in the future and what is life all about. I started to read books that normally typical students read at 20 or above when I was 17. Managing and building people at the age of 17. That was quite early. Normally Malaysians at that age only think about exams and playing around. I also did choose my academic track not only because there was scholarship.

But now then, I am no different than other mere university students, even maybe worse. Heh. Static. When you static, you will get infected.

1 Barbiturates Story By Dr Hesham Mahmoud

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Once upon a time, there was a guy in Egypt working at a bakery. One day, early in the morning he ate a long feeno, a regular bread eaten by Egyptians. While he was eating, he got a phone call from his wife. She told him that their daughter was missing. The guy became worried and tried to think about how to search his daughter. Moreover, he just gave his daughter an expensive hand watch branded Seiko.

Then he called his brother which was the uncle of her daughter to ask for help. After a while, fortunately, his daughter with her hand watch came to the bakery. He was so happy and hugged her lovingly.

The end.

Moral of the story:
1. The long feeno represents long acting barbiturates -----> Phenobarbitone
2. Daughter in Arabic means bintu. As his daughter was a small and short girl, she represents short acting barbiturates ----> Pentobarbitone. Also not to forget that she was wearing a watch branded Seiko in which we can have another short acting barbiturates ----> Secobarbitone
3. As regarding the uncle as a 'middle man' in searching his daughter, uncle is called ammu in Arabic. Simply we can get intermediate acting barbiturates ----> Amobarbitone

Dr Hesham is a funny guy. Heh. He knows greatly how to attract people's attention. Thanks Dr.
