going potty.

say you're studying pathology without pictures. what do you think the following terms mean?
  1. chicken-wire
  2. ground-glass
  3. variegated
  4. comedo
  5. encephaloid
?! chicken-wire really takes the cake.

christmas '07.

When asked, "Do you think all any of us really want, deep down, is to be loved?" American humourist Garrison Keillor responded:
"No, we want to be rich, to be admired, to eat like a horse and be skinny as a snake. To have small children ask for our autographs. To sing Irving Berlin and Gershwin and Porter at the Oak Room and be described in the Times as 'luminous.'
But in the absence of all that, it's enough to be loved."
have the happiest christmas, everybuddy. <3

girl meets world.

cute, from foto decadent.
ortho has finally ended. would say we lucked out with postings at TTSH and NUH, truly excellent and i actually had a fun time doing ortho. rather surprising, considering it is a somewhat macho thang. now for what we all need badly, some holidays!
and i've realised we won't be posted with ceegeetwo until cofm ends next year. take care you guys who read this. :)

ortho end-of-posting-test.

rather stressful/ amusing yesterday to see how reluctant my examiner was to give me straight leg traction as one of the short cases yesterday. he was veering dangerously towards this man with his arm hanging in a rather complicated splint... and i was making it a point to move away, haha. in the end, i did get traction as one of the short cases. along with post-op management of patient in high-dependency, continuous passive motion for post-knee replacement surgery, prevention of deep vein thrombosis and patient-controlled-analgesia.
my long case was something rather comfortable - diabetic foot. really hope it turns out alright, i guess. :)

december already.

living the weekend where everything comes after everything... ortho OSCEs, a write-up and pharmaco!

i need some PT!
been walking around with a basal level of codeine in my system this weekend, for a cough that doesn't want to go away. it's a certain lack of affect...
