This is first time..ok,, then i remembered the Korean medical drama, New Heart..the surgeon will kick the bottom of iron sink. Not kick. However, gentle than kicking. Huhu..so i did..wow.surprised..the water came out splashingly..alhamdulillah. Then i followed the instruction on how to scrub the hand. (htere was an article on the wall..but to read..it consumed time. Awkward.. Really..then i didn’t know how to take out the fluid soap from the bottle..uh..really..killing me..i thought it was not my time. also the OT shirt that i wore got wet at the end of the shirt arm..only few centimetres then to enter. I just observed the operation about few seconds through small glass window (the square one)..
12/8 5thday: hurray, today I entered OT;) Alhamdulillah..i reported myself to the head nurse and the surgeon. The surgeon will do total hip replacement surgery. ( I was not planning to go there, but just went to changing room, then asked the doctor (HO@MO) that also came to change clothes for surgery to join them;). 2nd OT, i wanted too, but the all robes (robes-like that prevent us from radiation, i didn’t know what it was called) wore by doctors and surgeons, so no more robes left for me ..the surgeon registered to do surgery was only Dr. H, but his friends came. I mean Dr. H’s friends were also surgeon so they did surgery together, about two friends kot..diorang saje..lepaking tapi also helping la sambil berbual...so, the HO only did observing like me too..hehe ( I thought they were serious like in dramas, but no..Here they also had chit-chat too..hehe..no stress..siap gurau2 lagi dalam OT.

I like the song by Ernie and the yellow hair man..ape la..nyanyi lagu Malaysia, butt, what happen to their hair??? Kalau I, I malu nak nyanyi lagu Malaysia, tapi rambut oren..tak sah mandi wajib..for sure, lainla kalau pakai inai kan, tapi inai mestilah remeh sedikit..but, may i ask u, what is the benefit that you can get by colouring / dye..eh dying? Your hair?? RM 15o kot kalau colour..pastu, nak mandi wajib pun susah..kena potong rambut dulu ke?? Nvmd~
Finish writing..tomorrow will go to Ampang Puteri to see dentist..
I want to throw out my adik bongsu there..ehh, no, gigi bongsu...i asked my mom, kenapa Allah jadikan gigi bongsu kalau tiada fungsi? The dentist that i met before, i mean today( yeah, penat ni baru balik) at Al-iSLAM Specialist Hospital Kuala Lumpur said that gigi bongsu tiada fungsi..betulkah? Ia mungkin akan mengganggu gigi-gigi kakak dan abang yang lain..em..wondering~
Ignore my overslept. It was good enough to do elective posting almost a month.ye tak?? Hehe..On 1Malaysia day, I felt relieved. True. I really meant it..;)
