Today while talking to my parents, they gave me the news I have been dreading to hear all week..My dog Sammy passed away...
He was initially diagnosed with having chronic renal insufficiency when I was back in December but this condition was something that can be managed. Unfortunately he had to be the few that deteriorated quickly and he has been sick for the past 2 weeks plus. He was even admitted for drips and all for flushing out the toxins. But his red blood cell just kept dropping and the only maintenance treatment for that was a blood transfusion which is not routinely done in Malaysia especially for big dogs. My dog is extra fat some more compared to other Labradors.

Everyday my parents keep giving me updates but his condition was just getting worse and worse. My fear was that he would have to be put to sleep which would have been very hard for everyone. He passed away with minimal suffering at home on his blankie.

I know I will miss him soo much but he will remain in my heart forever. He is my first dog and my memories of him will be cherished always. I love you my baby boy !!!

Wishing everyone a Happy Chinese New Year and may this year bring lots of luck, joy and love for you all...

and also

Happy Valentine's day.. Hope love is all around for everyone!!
OMG now I know I really have started Year 5 already......

I just had my first day of Specialty Surgery and I am starting off with 2 weeks of Ophthalmology followed by one week of Urology and another week of ORL (Ear, Nose and Throat). I feel it is a jam packed run because how are we supposed to learn anything in just one week. I am already overwhelmed by the amount of things we need to know in Ophthalmo.. Man this is going to be one crazeee year!!!!!

Ophthalmo is kinda interesting to some extent for me..The fact that I did not sleep despite having lack of sleep shows for sure..I don't mind the whole concept of it as the anatomy and pathology is confined to the eye only but once we have to do the examination using an ophthalmoscope or even worse the slit lamp...just kill me.... I don't understand how they can actually see so much from just that small hole in the ophthalmoscope.. I have to get the hang of it by this Friday as we have to draw each other's optic disc and vessels and stuff..The worse part..Can't even fake it because the examiners will double check it....*sweat*

Oh is going to be an interesting 2 weeks I hope.. I have to get back to my silly GP assignment..I know I should have done finished it during the weekend but I did improve from last year as I typed something at least during the weekend...But long way to go still.....

One change i finally did over the weekend was the download Google Chrome as my browser instead of IE. I got so sick of IE as have the time the page won't load or the page cannot open. So annoying... I love Google Chrome now!! Yay!!! *thanks for telling me about it* :)

OO and sorry for the change in font size and colour..I realized the font was kinda small and the colour was too pale. I shall remember to standardize..

Today was a day in the kitchen for me but I surprisingly enjoyed it. Before coming I learnt how to make this Indian desserts called 'payasam' from my grandfather. So today I thought will be a good day to try it out...

The end result was not too bad I guess but way thicker than the original. The process took like one hour and I just pulled my high stool in front of the stove and sat there stirring and stirring. The taste was there but it was just too thick. Better luck next time I guess. But I am glad I tried it out and my housemates liked it I hope!!!

It was a day filled with Indian cooking as dinner was Sambar or Dhal as it is commonly known. I made so much but luckily I have someone to eat it all !! ;)

I am actually starting to like cooking a bit more but I dunno if its just a phase. But I know its something I can't do day in and out. I should take advantage and cook more now I guess..Haha
The weekend is nearly gone and this week reality kicks in!!! I already started classes last week but since it was just lectures I could still zone out from time to time.. This week its back to hospitals. Well not quite yet as my first run is General Practice but its just as bad. One good thing is since we have quite a few other things on next week, I only have to go to the clinic for 5 days. Woohoo!!!

On Saturday, James. Mui How, Bee Ling, Kee Ping and me went to Sylvia Park. We just walked around and watched Avater 3d. Well for some of us it was a second time but this is one movie that was definitely worth to watch again. I must say the 3D version was really good. The movie was some how enhanced and brought to life by wearing those ugly looking glasses. And surprisingly the effects were just right. I was worried it might be too much and I'll end up having a headache later on. I loved the movie even more this time around. :)

Guess wat?? I went a bought a 1 TERA external hard drive. I finally came to the realisation I will never be able to back everything up with my current 250GB external. I first though I could just burn my shows into dvds but god knows how many I would need. This way I can just back everything up in my external and worry about sorting it out later which I just must must do!!!Mui How can now install Windows & for me and *fingers crossed*, its not soo laggy anymore.. Thanks Mui!!!

I am blogging from James's room while the boys are playing Dota at the table..Hahaha..I keep hearing..'I'll take care of it' and of course some not so sugar coated words when they are not winning..Haha..Boys and games and their gadgets!!!!
Happy Birthday Mui How!!!!!!!
Hope you have a great year ahead and all the best for everything you do. May all your dreams and wishes come true.. :)
Have a great boring day at home kay :) Love ya..Mwah!!!!
