hi hi. well, it's been 2 weeks since i stepped on this foreign land. it's been soo hectic n busy n hot n sweaty. it's march n i have to wait til august before i can have a taste of the rain, which by then, i would wish it's the dry season again. 4 those that dont know, in manipal we have 6 seasons. beginning from march, it goes- "hot, hotter, hottest", till august. then it becomes-"wet, wetter, wettest". lol. from what my lecturer said, the winter has ceased to come since he was a young kid. (he's bout 40++ i think)
anyway, i arrived here, not knowing ANYBODY n i was like soooo alone. lol. cant even see anyone i know. haizzz... after few classes, knew that mostly sunway, taylor, taylor, sunway. == n most also only 19. took sam or cimp, all 1 year pre-u. very few a level (exclude the jpas) so i m one of the oldest. lol. but it doesnt matter. i dont think i regret entering a level or inti college. =)
so, there i was, alone n single. scrutinizing around, most were busy blabbering with each other, or there were a few like me also. felt like going to them to say hi, but failed in the end. hahaa.. my mind shifted back to may 2008 on the first class of alevel. lol. all of u having the first impression of me being a snobbish, rich, pompous brat, when later u all found out i m actually a humble, poor, good friend. hahahah... well but i know at that time n now that eventually i will get to know ppl, so no rush to speed things up. but i doubt i wil know everyone in my batch. total 126, n seems like 12 more coming in. O.o now i barely know 30%. lol. after 2 week of class, it seems that i m seeing new faces everyday. hahaha.
so, alot of things had happened, n i have alot to share actually. but due to time n space constraint, i shall just cut it short. my lessons have started, n it's a hectic schedule. 8-4/5 everyday. worse still, i also have to wake up early on sat. == well, i think that's medicine. lots of new things to learn, lots of new vocabulary that are to be squeezed into my tiny, miny brain. T.T
n let's just come to the interesting part. dissection. =) we get to dissect by the second week we are here. got a fresh male body. (indian of coz.) total of 8 bodies i think. 7 male, 1 female. most of them are skinny. clearly, lived a whole life of destitute n poverty. =( besides one who is quite fat. goshhh his breast region got so much fat, that upon dissection, his nipple region got a whole chunk of yellowish fat, which clearly reminds me of durian. haha. i wil sure take that pic n upload it to fb one day. =P (n i m sure i wil receive lots of complains. i already do, when i told that to my friends here. )
then, to resolve some misconceptions, when i say dissection class, we dont really get our own cadavers, which we can play around, cut here n there, poke out the eyeball, n put it in fren's fishball noodle during lunch hour that sort of thing. it's done by the lecturers themselves, n we would just observe n learn from the side-all the positions of the organs, nerves etc etc. seems like no one fainted in this batch. (previous batches has got multiple cases) just that the formalin (preservative) is too strong, it always irritates our eyes- which disturbs my concentration most of the time. by now, everyone almost got used to it already, n many can be seen taking pictures. (my frens intend to pose with the corpse n upload to fb. lol)
so, i guess thats about it. soon i wil get sooo busy, i doubt i can online much. soo many things to memorize, i think i might as well memorize every single word from the first page to the last. lol. for pics, refer to my fb, though i hadnt really taken many photos up to date.
oh yah, thank God, i haven't really gotten diarrhoea. must be the prayers before i eat. hehe. Power of Prayers!!! got to go. been procrastinating for sooo many hours. goshhh!!! bb!!
