21st National Conference on Medical, Health and Science 2016 (21st NCMHS 2016) was my second conference, held on 17-18 October in School of Dental Sciences, USM. this time PPSG tuan rumah. honestly said, having conference in your own school is best sangat! no need to rush, rasa macam calm, boleh solely focus on your presentation -- sebab no need to book tickets, hotels, pack barang, etc etc like my first conference kat Melaka dulu.
and alhamdulillah, who would have thought... my luck was there. I won 2nd place for poster presentation, Basic Science category! :)
but... there were always storms before the rainbow.
I submitted my abstract a day after the due date. I started preparing the contents of my poster only after I went back from summercamp (GSS), and I really had trouble in shifting my own mood. it was hard to move on, man. all the memories kept lingering in my mind, too sweet #youmeltmyheart and still fresh. else, I had to move to and fro from PPSG-CDH and CDH-PPSG more than one time for my poster design and printing. my 'mock presentation' was the worst presentation I ever had! that 'top three poster presenter' was never in my mind. I had sleepless night writing my script and finding the answers for all possible questions, and I began practicing everything exactly on the first day of conference, at 12 pm after the vaccine talk. Prof Ismail and Prof Mahaneem were the judges, and my presentation wasn't that smooth as I couldn't control my nervous! I couldn't even answer the first question asked from Prof M! and Prof I commented on the terminology that I used in my poster, "this terminology is not right. you better use this etc etc." he said. and also they did ask me few simple questions that I could answer, thank God! and since I couldn't answer every questions from the judges, I started to put no hope at all on that 'best presenter award'.
first day. moment sebelum judging.
and yes, for the first time in history, luck was on my side. I remember this. rezeki -- Allah bagi, tak pernah dan takkan pernah salah alamat walau seteruk mana pun kita perform.
so I guess this one is the rainbow for the storms that I had on September's depression? :)
facebook suka bagi notification macam ni. "you have memories with PQRSTUVWXYZ and 35 others to look back on today"
kadang rasa annoying gak dapat noti ni hari-hari. time rajin and rasa banyak masa baru bukak. sekali bukak, nah kau keluar habis status dulu dulu berkurun lamanya. tadi tengok, status tahun 2010. nak tahu apa status tu?
"yes, pendrive ok!"
bahahaha gelak sensorang. stupidnya rasa lapar pun nak tulis. itu ok lagi. then baca la pulak tang komen. ya rabbi... geli baca komen sendiri!! sebab masa tu pesen reply komen macam dak-dak wechatz sekarang haha.
"pasan je lebeyyyy."
dan sebagainya. tak sanggup nak taip balik.
satu penulisan yang sangat tak matang, dan memalukan haha.
don't judge me from my past, I don't live there anymore.
kadang-kadang, kita makan pakai sudu. bukan sebab kita nak acah-acah hipster, mahupun acah-acah budak bandar. tapi sebenarnya kita makan pakai sudu sebab kuku kita panjang. kuku panjang banyak kuman. sudahla banyak, bermacam-macam, berspecies-species ada.
normal ke ada perasaan geli bila tengok orang kuku panjang ni? kalau nampak bersih ok lagi, kalau nampak hitam hitam tu erkkkk. nak tengok seseorang tu pembersih atau tak, boleh tengok kuku dia. sebab kuku ni paling senang nampak.
p/s: lelaki takde sebab untuk tak potong kuku, while women ada sebabnya. tapi ini khilaf juga. ada pendapat yang kata, time datang bulan boleh potong tapi kena simpan then kna basuh sekali dengan mandi wajib, and ada juga pendapat yang kata tak boleh potong. so terpulanglah nak pegang yang mana ye.
untuk pengetahuan semua, pemilihan partner untuk GSS ni was based on Japanese method. lupa dah nama method tu. amidakuji tak silap. bukan sesuka hati tau nak pilih partner hensem ke tak hensem, cute ke tak cute. cuma kalau dapat yang hensem plus cute tu memang rezeki, hahaha! everything is based on this method, random je ni. USM 8 orang, TUT pun 8 orang, so ada 8 pasangan throughout the program.
and luck was on my side that time. I got cute and handsome partner for two weeks! sejuk mata memandang, wakaka laariii.
would like to cerita from A-Z about 3rd GSS, tapi time constraint. berkejaran masa untuk conference, sobs.
sketsa kali ni happened during breakfast time, at Belum Eco Resort (BER). for every breakfast, lunch, or dinner, we have to sit with Japanese-Malaysian. Japanese-Japanese and Malaysian-Malaysian, cannot. depa takmau. so during breakfast time, I saw Yusaku with a cup of tea on his hand. teh o biasa. Japanese style minum tea or coffee is, diorang tak letak gula. dahla satu cawan tu dia letak dua uncang teh/kopi. boleh imagine tak pahit dia macamana? tapi bagi diorang biasa je macam ni. ok, bila habis je minum teh tu, dia pegi bancuh yang lain. this time... I saw something in his cup!
Me : Yusa, what is this? what's inside your tea?
Yusa : ohh it's honey!
Me : whaaaat, honey? where did you get this?
*pelik tetiba sebab rasanya resort ni takde plak sediakan madu. yang ada white sugar and brown sugar je as sweeteners.*
Yusa : I take there, in front of the blueberry jam!
Me : HAHAHAHAHAHA Yusa, that's not honey. it's 'kaya', another type of jam made up of coconut base. hadoii time ni bantai gelak kawkaw!
Yusa : oh reallyyyyy??? I thought it's honey! haha but it's okay I will try!
then dia minum. he said, not bad, tak rasa coconut pun. oklah ingatkan dia nak stop dah lepas tu. but I was wrong.
