For my Abah, Mr Sainuri Hj Yahmin.

I don't have a typical story to write regarding how much u have to suffer to get us something to eat, because u are well educated; and that good job, great salary always awaits u. I also don't have a story of how I behave against your word, because as far as I know, I've always been a good daughter to u :P. Hurmm, and I also don't have a story of how u tried to console me when I did not get what I wanted, because u always thought us of how to be thankful with things we already had. I never cried under your arms because u have always thought me to be strong.

I might not remember how things were when I was little, but there are some recent memories I remembered about u.

Your first forehead kiss right before u travel to Hajj with mak when I was in high school. I cried all the way to Amat's school and home.

The time u show me your Master certificate and ask me to have one too, when I was in Matriks. (which I knew I already disappointed u with my bad marks)

The moment u say "I know it's hard for u to live and study here, I wish I could help make your surrounding better" right before u, mak and akak flew back from visiting me in Egypt.

I might not cry in front of u because of my guilt of having bad marks in Matriks, but I really am sorry from the bottom of my heart. I promise I'll never make u sad anymore.
U also might not see/ hear me cry because i misses u and the whole family whenever I am far but I always did. I cried everytime I left for KL to flew back to Egypt. I cried my eyes out when u all went back from visiting me here.
And in fact I am crying right now, writing this post after mak told me u look sad when none of your children wished u on Father's Day. I am sorry I did it again. Truly am. Also on behalf of the others.
U might never heard me say I love u, but I do.

Without u I won't be having this good background of religion & great school education in one of the best school in Sabah. Without u I won't be having this opportunity to further my studies in this country. Without u I won't be having this comfortable house and life I've been living in. Without u I won't be having good attitude that I get from u. Without u I am nobody.

Thank You for being such a wonderful father. And I'm really sorry for the all the things I did wrong. Happy Father's Day, Abah. I wish u all happiness in the world.

Female pt, 24 yo, 2 weeks history of cubitus (elbow region) itchiness of gradual onset and progressive course. On examination, cubitus appear inflammed, red, raised on palpation.

hehe.. above is brief patient history to be presented to a dermatologist. Patient's name is DrNurolSai. :P

This complain was 3 weeks ago. Before presenting myself to any doctor, I self-medicate myself by buying topical anti histamine--fenistil. Using this topical cream for 1 week made the lesion worse, so I made an appointment with a dermatologist as my tutor advised me to.
this is how the lesion looks like. see the clearly defined edge of the inflammation? ugly. and it itches to death

need dermatologist consultation? i recommend u Dr Soheir. very x100 nice one :)
There were 2 rooms in the clinic, 1 is for dermatology, and another is for orthopedics. Already surprised by the presence of the-other-room doctor, who is our chief tutor in orthopedics who teaches us everyday in class; we were made much more surprised knowing my dermatologist is actually the wife of his!
and she (my dermatologist) is going to teach us in our next semester. What a small world~

Examination was made. Despite her being a woman, i'm still quite embarrassed to expose some hidden parts I always cover. This must be how patients felt when I checked and do examinations on them. What's worse is that they are being examined by 'a group of students' instead of 'one specialist'. At least now I know how it feels like, and what's worst is when we are to do a VE (vaginal exam), PR (per rectal exam) & maybe breast exam or scrotal exams on men.. !
I hope I'll learn more to respect them.

The dermatologist explained that this might be a 'contact dermatitis', if not allergy. She told me to stop using the topical anti histamine, and said "anti histamine is better taken orally rather than topicals". Okay. Everybody take note. I was prescribed oral anti histamine & topical steroid. I was also told not to continue wearing any creams/lotions, avoid tight cloth at that area, and to come see her after a week for follow up.

medications prescribed

As the busy week of exam comes, I was not able to attend to my 2nd appointment. Hectic study life, with nobody to accompany me to the clinic (which is 10 min by taxi). Well here, all private clinics will only function during night time because doctors are obliged to serve the government hospital duty during the day, and continue working on their private clinics during the night. And the rule for Malaysians here is that; no Malaysian girls are to wander around by themselves during night except with supervision of at least a man. (we call them musyrif)

I went follow up just tonight, with 2 of my classmates which is a husband-and-wife, who are also going to review HER pregnancy with another obstetrician.

About the skin problem that i had, doctor declared good healing except for some hyperpigmentation which she says will resolve in a month or so without treatment. Good for me. She remind me not to use the fenistil again, which she thought might be the perpetuating factor for my 'contact dermatitis'. She said she cannot conclude what the trigger might be; maybe soap, lotion, cloth..

Okay. Enough about skin. Now moving to the obstetric part. This is the first time I went for an antenatal review with any couple. For those who know; THEY are my Abg Azmy & Kak DK. She is already pregnant for 22 weeks. This visit is for review of her baby's condition and if possible, to know the gender of their baby. Unluckily, baby is too shy to turn (I guess she/he is sleeping) to show his/her gender. 'Perhaps u might be embarrassed bcoz aunty is there, huh baby?' ehee.

Bro Azmy said " Beginila nanti kau dgn suamimu dtg jumpa doctor ".. aiyarks.. can't wait for that! :P

There they are, with our tutor who teaches us in our O&G round last semester. Although quarreling over a small thing is this couples' hobby, they actually care much about each other (well of course they are. hehe). As they always quote "this is what's gonna happen when u marry your own best friend" :)

Semoga baby sentiasa sihat dalam kandungan mama, dan mama pun sentiasa sihat menjaga baby dalam ur uterus~

And may we all be blessed with good health always..To keep the body in good health is a duty & the greatest wealth is health!

final thing to say: I'm getting pathologically slender-ER.. *__*

DST... is the way a country tries to stretch their day. I mean day, with sunlight, with exclusion of night time. Every spring (which means the start of sweaty days), they will add an hour ahead of current time, and every fall, the one hour added will be subtracted back from the current time.(am talking about egypt)

Not all countries practice the same rules as Egypt. Some may subtract an hour, some may add 2 hours, or 20 minutes, or 40 minutes. (i guess this will be much more confusing to the citizen)
Countries like China, India, Japan, and countries without seasons don't apply this DST.

They who had TV in their houses will have no confusion/ difficulty to know the exact time when we are around the transitional time-changing days. Laptops were set for DST but it's not always in line with the real DST the country started. As a consequence, we students always got confused on when to attend classes, and worse when to attend exams! Is it using the old time, or the new time?

I actually was furious about this time-changing, menyusahkan org je!. But as they say, DST can decrease amount of RTA (road traffic accidents), prolonging the time for children to play during the day (like trick or treat during Halloween.. children aren't allowed to trick or treating during night time), decrease use of public electricity.. hurm maybe true. I don't know.

Spring time this year, Egypt had stopped using DST. So starting this year, there's no 5 hours difference for summer & 6 hours difference from winter (compared to Malaysia time).

They completely will abolish the use of DST starting now. better I think. :) But one thing I dislike is the fact that Subuh prayer is as early as 3 o'clock in the morning. We have to adjust our sleeping time in order to be able to get up early for the purpose. At least when the DST is still in use, Subuh prayer will only start at 4 am. Better than 3 am. Psychologically too early.

The thing about abolishing DST was; last year, Ramadhan started on August, but the DST will only end on September. (I only heard the rumors last year about them subtracting 1 hour because of Ramadhan, now only i confirmed by reading the news about it. I was in Malaysia, so what do i care if the time changes.hik3) They practically 'paused' the DST by subtracting one hour for the whole month of Ramadhan (to prevent them fasting one hour longer), and continue adding the 1 hour after the month end. Cool huh?

The other interesting thing is, while Egypt only have one common time for the whole country, Russia on the other hand have 11 different times inside them. (what language is this?)... Imagine you were traveling from Terengganu to Perlis with the need to change your watch timing according to the new place you arrived at. Pelik.. this was because Russia is too big of a country that the time zone changes. It's only recently that Russia reduced their 11 different time zone to only 9.

Malaysia was the case too before, but our government decided to equalize the time for the whole country despite of time zone changing. Syukur!

Terlebih semangat la pulak cerita pasal tukar jam. hee..
