Anti You

This is the period where you get to see pitiful souls drag their belongings across halls just because of a 'minor' hiccup in the hall allocation system. Maybe it's part of their undergraduate programme to further enhance life skills such as logistics planning for shifting, live without a proper bed and be thankful for a kind soul who lets you squat and the list goes on.

I really can be a professional mover after this. I even have a dedicated crew of mine equipped with a motorbike and sometimes a small Kancil to help me drag my things from on room to another.

That's life in my place. Be wise, choose to stay out :P

Just when you thought that you got everything all settled, there's always something that screws up.

That's life in anti-you :(

I'm still wondering why most of us didn't get the hall of our choice despite meeting the general cut-off points. One thing I observed was that most of the students were mainly final year students. I guess they forgot that they are the ones who are graduating soon and will be contributing back via donations etc etc.I think they really want their undergraduates to always strife to beat the system and hence constantly create various controversial situations.

Time to summon the Ninja God to investigate and fight for justice 

Who's with him? Hands Up!

Loctor Loctor

I just got back from the hospital to see the doctor to get a final inspection on my appendicitis wound. Basically it leaves no scars because the doc performed a single port surgery which is also known as Laparo-endoscopic single site surgery on me. They would operate through the navel and two small holes, one on the right side of the abdomen and the other on the lower abdomen.

And so I shall tell you how rich the doctors are nowadays. Keep in mind that I was waiting for almost 2 hours and finally the nurse called my name.

Doc: How's your wound? Ready to go back to Singapore?

Me: No pain anymore, I guess I'm ok!

Doc: Come come lie down and let me see your wounds. *peels of bandages* Don't worry about your wound opening half way when you're walking just don't do any strenuous activities for the next week.

Me: *grins widely* That's good!

Doc: Okay all the best and I'll see you again! * Hands me the bill and ushers me out*

Me: T.T 

The whole thing took approximately 5 minutes and costed me 45 bucks.
Sprawling on the bed ;(

Moral of the story: If you have no money, pray that you don't fall sick!:(

Appendix explained

A few days ago I was admitted into the hospital for appendicitis but now I'm recovering well at home. Most of my friends attribute my calamity to post-eating activities such as exercises or jumping like a kid. The doctor however, said appendicitis happens over a period of days and most of the time it's unlucky and unforeseen.

For me I choose to think it's because of the saying, "Like father like son"

Thanks dad for encouraging me to exercise after my meals or exercise regularly when I'm bored.

Just pray I don't get white hair like you when I'm 30
Happy Father's Day (;

Extended Holiday, Song Bo!

,Dad: Nik, you very bored in the hospital?

Me: Not really, it's like my days in Tampere. Just eat,sleep and exist :D

Dad: Very true!!

Me: Songg Boo!! , means nice or not in Hokkien.

I asked my father to take a photo before my small surgery to remove my appendix

 Later did i know he also took a shot after it while I was still under GA

It was really depressing to just rest on the bed the whole day and I found this picture quite interesting. It's just basically lines which were painted in such a complicated manner.

I also realized the importance of medical insurance and the support of your loved ones during this period.Trust me, this is something that you won't regret (; Also do make sure that you double check what type of policy you have purchased. Most of us are just to lazy to bother!

One last obstacle for me, i still need clearance from my higher order i.e my mother! XD

Have you registered?

It's been a week at home but somehow this place isn't the same as it used to be. The padang (field) which i used to hang out is now dominated by unfamiliar faces. Patrol guards are literally in every corner in my neighbourhood and food prices are way to expensive for a student like me. Even my little brother is as tall as me :(

Sorry that I went off topic for a while, must be the transition period! Anyways, I was just surfing around the internet and I somehow ended up in the SPR(Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya aka Electoral Commission) website. Yes it takes only a few minutes to register yourself as a voter in any local post office but it will take 5-6 months to get confirmed in the system. Do register early! As for me I registered myself a day after my 21st birthday *ya i'm old already* and only a few months ago my details was in the system.

You can check your status over here.

Change is always overrated when there's no action involved yet every politician says they urge for change. I say, "Be a man, do the right thing!"

Like shave your head when it's overgrown for 6 months

Finding a hotspot!

Internet is very important especially when you are travelling but most of the time in Europe it's not free! It's very disappointing to find out there's internet but when you are greeted with the Visa logo on the login page, that's the end of your joy.I found out a cheat code on how to get free internet and I'm more than willing to share it! Doesn't guarantee that you will get free internet at airports but it's worth a try!

When at the airport, go to the nearest computer/electronic stores.
Chances are that they will have tablets displayed. Of course you will have to talk to the salesman to show a little interest in their products, then only you should check for internet!

 Then off you go, you can easily kill 2-3 hours in the airport instead of hanging out on benches. We did this in London Gatwick and Heathrow. Haha! You can share which other airports that has free wireless internet (:

Travel Myths

Someone told me that I was very fortunate to be travelling around and see the world at a very young age. Yes, I don't deny that but I always tell them that sometimes,well most of the time, it's not as fun as it looks (; Let me tell you why,

While in the day you get to see many beautiful sights, by night you have to catch the last bus to the airport to secure a 'comfortable' place. This was one of the thousand positions you will maneuver throughout the night. Trust me, no matter how tired you are, it's almost impossible to sleep in the airport/train.

Sometimes, you will be so exhausted that you may doze off during short bus rides 

The best part would be having good Samaritans to offer you a tiny corner in their apartment for a night. I'm often amazed by their generosity to accommodate me although I barely know them

And at times, you maybe lucky to have some who allows you to snuggle in with them for a night or two.

But nothing beats your bed back home, this I can assure you! (; 
Home bound!!
