Geli Tak Pegang Gamat?

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Geli ke tak pegang gamat?
Haaa sabauuu (Orang Melaka R jadi U haha), baca sampai habis.
Never thought of holding a 'gamat' before.
In fact, tak pernah terfikir boleh jumpa gamat depan mata!
Selalu ingat pergi Langkawi je boleh jumpa gamat haha noob.

So where can you hold a gamat other than pulau-pulau and pantai?
Oceanarium in The Shore, Melaka! (Promote Melaka jap haha)
The Shore? Oceanarium?
Apa minah ni cakap ni.

Haha but to be honest I myself didn't know bout this place before.
The Shore is actually a new shopping mall.
A shopping mall in a hotel err I guess so.
Seronok ada gang discover new places ni, luckily Ummi pun cuti juga today hehe.
Pusing punya pusing dengan Ummi cari The Shore and finally we arrived at that place.
Oceanarium (at 2nd floor, in front of DIY) ni lebih kurang macam Aquaria KLCC.
They have fish turtles fish turtles okay banyak lah lain.
Oh oh and gamat!

After buying tickets, they gave a piece of paper consisted of few questions.
We had to 'cop' on the right answer and gave it back to them at the end of our way to claim a prize.
Kiranya sambil tengok haiwan, sambil baca fact and cari cop-cop tersembunyi.
Oh haaa and yang paling penting there's an area that we can even touch those animals!
Gamat, ikan, huge lobster, starfish and few more!

Geli gila pegang gamat hahaha for me lah.
The person in charge at that area letak gamat atas tangan Ummi haha nasib tak kena campak gamat tu.
We had the chance to see few types of gamat.
There's one type which has reallyyyyy soft skin, kinda like silk or 'baldu'.
Geli juga that one hahaha.
Pegang starfish pun geli juga sikit luckily tak lembik and more like a stone.

Overall this place is fun especially if you bring along kids, I'm sure they will love it!
Yelah kalau semua orang dewasa, and semua tak suka haiwan haaa memang rasa hambar je tempat ni haha.
Before I forget, here some details bout Oceanarium.

Sunathon - A Lesson About Circumcision

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

When was my last post again? About a month ago wow so berhabuk! Before that, my deepest sympathy goes out to all flood victims out there especially in Kelantan, Terengganu, Perlis, Kedah, Perak and Pahang. May Allah comfort you and your family in this time of grief. Stay strong!

And for those who aren't affected by flood, don't take this time as an opportunity to be "famous" in social media and this matter should not be politicised. Why don't we, hand-to-hand, together helping them as much as we could do. At least, pray for their safety and welfare.

Alright now let's move on to our main topic for today. Sunathon is basically a combination of Sunat (Circumcision) and Marathon or in other words, mass circumcision. IMU doesn't provide this kind of training so about 20+ of us (under IMU Muslim Society) paid a few amount and went to Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences last week to learn everything about circumcision. This may be very useful in the future.

After we had breakfast, we were given few lectures on different topics about circumcision; General idea, Management of the program (If you wanna conduct Sunathon at your place), Procedure, Equipments, Sterilisation, Post Operation and Overall Flow.

There are 10 steps in the procedure that involve the patient.
Other few steps such as sterilisation etc only involve the team, not the patient.

As usual, build rapport first.
Explain the procedure to patient.

Give the patient Local Anaesthesia (LA) which consists 2ml of Lignocaine (short-acting LA) and 2ml of Marcaine (long-acting LA).
There are 3 places that have to be injected.

Clean and drape.
Clean the area and make a hole in the drape (which is given along in the dressing kit).

Remove smegma (death cells) that's usually trapped.

Smegma is actually a buildup of exfoliated (shed) epithelial cells, transudated skin oils, and moisture found between the foreskin and penis. When the head of the penis isn't regularly cleaned, this fluid accumulate and expel an unpleasent odor.

So to those yang dah bersunat, tiada lagi accumulation of spegma ni :)

Dorsal slit.




Prescribing; Painkiller (Ponstan) and Antibiotic (Penicillin/Amoxycillin)

Post/Care and advices.
Observe 30 mins for bleeding.

We also had a session, explaining about the equipments and sterilisation process.
Apparatus and equipments that will be used were; artery forceps, needle holder, forceps (either with or without tooth), scissors, catgut, syringe, disposable gloves, saline, dressing set and Chloramphenicol (CMC).

Then we had a practical session with few stations! Weeeee

First station; Local Anaesthesia
We learned how to draw Lignocaine and Marcaine from their bottles.
We had to perform Intramuscular (IM) and Subcutaneous (SC) injections on a half-cut orange.
It was quite hard actually to perform it below than 1 minute!
And we had to make sure there's no bubble inside the syringe because it can cause air embolism.

Second station; Clean and Drape 
We were required to clean a so-called penis (bottle) using alcohol and then drape it with a newspaper.
This station was quite easy to be finished in less than a minute hehe.

Third station; Suture
At this station, we were being taught on how to suture a cloth.
We had to do 5 sutures in less than 5 minutes.
I always wonder whenever I look at doctor performs surgery, how can they suture very well!
Now I know.
If you know the technique, suturing is reallyyyy easy!
Fyi, you can look like a pro too ;) heee.

Fourth station; Dorsal slit and Suture
With a partner, we had to perform dorsal slit on a tyre and then suture it back!
Cutting (Dorsal slit) was quite easy but to suture it back is not that easy because the tyre was quite thick and the catgut wasn't easy to penetrate it.
We sutured the tyre by using the interrupted 6 sutures that had been taught.
It is called interrupted because 6 sutures are sewn separately, so that if one is accidentally opened or if an infection occurs at only one part, we don't have to open all the other sutures.

In the evening we had an exam for all stations and some written questions.
My best friend Diddy who studies in CUCMS spent some time, visiting Tiara and I weeee.

We went back to IMU by the same bus.
Unfortunately the bus couldn't go into Bukit Jalil area bcs at that time ada perlawanan akhir Piala Suzuki between Malaysia and Thailand in the Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
So we had to walk all the way from the highway to Vista haha.

Lbnl, tbh everything was great!
Time and money spent on this program were really worth it.
For those who plan to know about Sunathon and experience this by yourself, just give a call to CUCMS.

Alright I better go now.
Assalamualaikum! :)
