Pre-Housemanship: Things I'm Glad I Did

Assalamualaikum and hi guyssss! 

Before I start, just in case you don't know, I'm currently in my 4th posting, which means I already completed 1 year and a month of housemanship, since each posting takes 4 months. 

Xiamo Mi Box S Review: 3 Reasons Why You Should Have It

Assalamualaikum and hi guys! 

I'm trying to be consistent here by posting at least once per week. So how do I do so far? Hehe 

Anyway today I'm gonna review a tech device that I loveeee. 

Someone Licked Me In The Middle of The Night

Yes. Someone licked me at 3am in the morning and I was so shocked! 

One Principle I Always Hold On To During Housemanship

Assalamualaikum and hi everyoneeee.

Not sure if anyone still reads blog posts or not, but here I am after a year plus of hiatus. A lot of things happened and changed for the past year. I tried my best to update my blog, wishing that it would be somehow my go-to comfort place, where I can keep a part of memories, but I did not succeed. 24 hours in a day, 7 days a week, but I still do not have enough time to update my blog monthly, not to mention weekly or daily. My off days and post nights were mostly spent on sleeping hehe. 

Oh and another reason why I didn't update much is because my laptop lagged so much that I rather do something else than wait for it. My husband bought a new laptop for me so yeay!

I started housemanship early August 2020. 1 year passed and I had gone through 3 postings, and currently in my fourth. Obstetrics & Gynaecology (O&G) was my first posting, followed by Surgical, Medical and now Orthopaedic. 

Housemanship is challenging. Every single person would say that. If you feel like quitting, you are not alone. Especially if you just start your journey as a doctor aka houseman. The earlier days won't be easy. There are days that you might regret your choice of becoming a doctor. There are days that you would cry so hard. There are days that you will be so busy that you don't have time to eat. There are days that people might call you 'jonah' because things happen when you're around even though it is just a coincident that you are there (luls). There are days that you go back and all you wanna do is sleep. There are days that things just don't go your way. There are days you might go back few hours late. 


There are also days that you meet good friends that even you guys go separate ways, you will still have each others' back. There are days that you work with nice MOs and specialists. There are days that you will have complete 3 meals. There are days that you will be able to sleep during your night shift (I had though, even just for a few days.. for the past 1 year..). There are days that your friends buy food for you. There are days that will be your firsts; first time assisting, first time suturing, first time cpr-ing, etc. And those first times will be so precious. The more firsts you get, more times you repeat, the better you will be and eventually your days will get better and better. Even though it still won't be easy, at least not every day you will feel like quitting. 

Small things count and remember those. Be proud of yourself. Help out each other. Be proactive and productive. Always be empathy. Treat patients how you would like doctors treat your family. And most importantly, jangan berkira bila buat kerja. You will gain pahala, experience and knowledge. Be nice to your superiors, colleagues and others. You think people might not remember it, but they actually do. 

One principle among few principles that I always hold on to; 
All people are nice until proven otherwise. 

Even if you think someone is not so nice, treat them nicely. S/he might be having a bad day. Well, who doesn't have one right? Look the good things in others. If you get scolded, take the good ones and leave the bad ones. Never take anything personally in your heart, but if it does get to your heart and you feel like wanna cry, just cry. We are human beings and it is okay to cry. 

I still have one year to go. 

I pray that all of us will be able to go through hardships in our lives toughly, strongly and successfully amin.

Wedding Series Ep2: Pre-Engagement - The Preparation, One Thing Ayah Really Disliked

Assalamualaikum and hi everyone!

I hope you guys had a good day today. It was a great day for me, Alhamdulillah. My husband just got his permanent placement result and turned out he got the hospital that I'm planning to work at, Alhamdulillah. I'm so so so grateful. Thank you for everyone who keeps us in your prayer. Only Allah can repay your kindness :')  

Alright, we have come to the second episode weeee. I'm gonna talk about the preparation of our engagement and how ayah disliked that ONE thing I did. Totally disliked, kalau boleh tak nak pandang and rasa segan kalau orang tahu haha. I feel embarrassed as well, but I decided to post it here as a memory, gituuu. What is it? Tungguuuu. 

This post is gonna have 4 subheadings on how I prepared my engagement.

1. How did I start? Where did I start? 

The preparation started right after we'd decided on the engagement date. I did some research and from there I came up with an engagement to-do-list (will share with you guys in the next post, InshaaAllah!). Typical Ardilla semua benda nak list, dari sekolah sampai sekarang haha. Ayah and Ibu handled catering, while I settled the rest. I tried my best to save as much as I can, opting for the cheaper-but-still-nice option hehe. 

And not to forget, I also cleaned up my study room! It's called study room though I never used that room to study haha. If you read my post entitled Konmari: Don't Judge My Room, you'd definitely surprise looking at the before and after photos. Yelah, dari bilik cam tongkang pecah terus kemas sebutir habuk pun takde hehe. 

2. The only shop I went for outfit hunting (20th of August 2019)

My best friends were so supportive; Babyboos gave me a few suggestions from where I could find my outfit and I asked Tiara if she could accompany me and she immediately said yes! She even offered me to have a sleepover at her house since I came from Melaka. So segannnnn, especially with Aunty Dewi and Uncle Mazua hehe thank you Aunty and Uncle.

I already eyed a few shops and planned to buy a pastel pink baju kurung. I fetched Tiara from Putrajaya and we went to the first shop. I straight away picked up the clothes that I wanted and tried it. It fitted perfectly. Suddenly I saw another baju kurung with the same design but in baby blue and it looked nicer on me! Tiara sent a few photos of me to Ibu and both of them said that the blue one was nicer. 

I paid and we left. Phew, that wasn't so hard, Alhamdulillah! 

Here's a shameless selfie of me hehe 

3. Sobri bought the engagement ring in Mydin?! (15th of August 2019)

Sobri works in JB, so we only met once before the engagement, which was 4 days after The Awkward Meeting haha. It was in the afternoon when he reached Melaka. Semangat tak tahu kenapa, I already surveyed a few halls and we went to this one hall, where Elfira Loy's wedding took place to have a look. By the time we left, it was already 6pm. 

We didn't have much time so I told Sobri let's find my ring in Mydin. He was surprised. He forgot that Mydin Melaka bukan biasa biasa haha kidding. One of Habib Jewel branches is in Mydin and there were a few other jewellery shops as well. 

Sobri preferred me wearing a gold ring, but white gold captivated my heart. I told him that I would wear a gold ring during nikah, so he bought me the white gold. Yeay win-win hehe. Win-win apanya, Sobri yang belikan padahal -.-

4. Hantaran preparation and decoration 

I volunteered to settle all components other than catering. Thinking of saving more money, I decided to decorate the hantaran from scratch by myself. Sobri and I came to a conclusion to have hantaran of 7 berbalas 5, which means I will have to prepare 7 hantaran for Sobri. 

Ayah disliked this ONE hantaran that I decorated, sampai yang hantaran lain before this ayah suka pun terus ada je yang macam tak kena haha. It was not my fault. I'd tried my best *buat muka kesian*. But to be honest, looking back at that ONE hantaran I decorated, I felt embarrassed as well. Luckily Sobri and his family accepted as it was hehe. 

Beriya okay I prepare hantaran for Sobri. Habis sepah ruang tamu kat office ayah haha. 

Gonna show you guys something really embarrassing. Okay amaran, jangan gelak! Hahaha. I did try my best okay. I really did. And here comes the ONE that ayah disliked the MOST. Taraaaaa!

Hahahaha. Yes it was ugly. I don't know what did I think at that time. Maybe I thought it was cool to tabur tabur all the chocolates inside the dulang to make it looked A LOT. Yes, it looked a lot.. hmmm A LOT messy haha. 

One thing for sure, ayah told me to never decorate any hantaran and will make sure I hire someone who's really creative next time. Creative as in memang disahkan kreatif tanpa perlu tabur coklat haha. 

In my next post, I'll share with you guys my engagement-to-do list and probably some tips here and there so see you guys there! 

P/s: Have any of you guys ever decorated hantaran before? 
Any idea on how to decorate mini chocolates like that?
