Kursus Induksi: Batch of 2008

Every year, the Ministry of Health organizes it’s Induction Course (Kursus Induksi) for all pharmacists, dentists and doctors who report for duty as officers in the MoH.

This year was no different.

The only sad thing was that they delivered the Letter of CCBness only on Thursday and the course was scheduled to be held from Saturday til Tuesday. WTH!!! Dahlah we were all supposed to attend a colleague’s wedding on Saturday boo.

Damn sad ok, thank goodness I had decided against buying a new dress for the wedding hmph.

Anyhuu, can’t complain lar cause Kursus Induksi-s were previously supposed to stretch over 2 (TWO!) whole weeks. Imagine, 4 days also I complain like mad edi, if it were 2 weeks I confirm mengamuk lor.

PLUS this time around it was held at Felda Residence Trolak (a “resort” kononnye) which had air-conditioning woohoo too bad for you older generation suckers who had to sleep with the bugs on bunk beds and bathe in communal bathrooms lol.

Although you can definitely bet you’re in for a bit of shit when the official resort website is at http://www.plantationresorts.com.my.

Packed my bags and said goodbye to the cat.

Su-Ann, Bam Bam and I were roomies for the 3 nights =)

“Nature-inspired” walkway.
4

Wonderfully lala public telephone.
5

By the time we had checked-in and settled down, it was time for (a very yucky) dinner.
6

Surrounded by mountains and palm oil trees: No way to escape =(
7

Jumping shot which turned into toilet bowl shot thanks to bad timing.
8

Someone decided it was necessary to build a bridge over the drain.
9

The entire course comprised of a series of lectures regarding government work ethics, government protocol and other general topics. Not really related to our professions per se, but I guess it’s good to get the groundwork going.

Paying full attention, yup yup…
10

…yup yup yup.
11

The classes lasted from 8.30am til 10.30pm so I guess it was understandable that everyone was exhausted towards the end.
12

PCK I miss you!! T_T
15

On the second night (Sunday), Su-Ann, Edm and I took a short drive to the tiny town of Sungkai to purchase a toothbrush, as Su-Ann had decided to leave hers at home.

And fate had it that right opposite the Indian sundry shop was a Chinese restaurant called “Choy Kee” that sold pork trotters!!! ZOMG!!!

It’s located along Jalan Besar Sungkai. Although in reality the road is anything but besar.
13

Happiness.
14

And of course we just HAD to share the joy with the rest of our buddies, so on the third and final night, we made the journey down to Jalan Besar Sungkai for yet another bowl of cholesterol and collagen laden goodness.

I know I look superbly horrible, but she looks so cute, so terpaksalah aku bersacrifice.
16

Fidgeting while waiting for the food.
17

Now this is what I call F.O.O.D. (got 12 of us btw).
18

Boring group presentations made the 3 back there go, “Boo I can’t wait to go home”.
19

28-24-39. And those are the ages, not my measurements (no way my ass is that big!). WTH that stupid fella is casting a shadow on my arm and making it look even thinner than it already is leh ish damn retarded looking.
20

On the morning of our final day there, we had a short “quiz”, but luckily it wasn’t evaluated so no need kiasu lar. Otherwise I confirm die die.

OM NOM NOM.
21

Kiasu Su-Ann wrote so bloody much stuff.
22

Note how little effort it is taking me to produce all 3 chins.
23

FAT 101.
24

Random groupie.
25

After everything was over and we had bid each other teary goodbyes, 7 of us berzoomzoom to the Sungai Klah hot springs (Taman Rekreasi Air Panas Sungai Klah) for a little R & R.

That boy is one lucky train driver!
26

The nice people there allowed us into the Felda Residence Hot Springs resort, which consists of 5 private villas as well as a number of Deluxe rooms going for RM250 per night. Damn nice ok the place!! The only weird thing was that we were surrounded by a palm oil estate instead of coconut trees and such.

Beautiful landscaping.
29

Failed group shot.
30

The Sungai Klah hot spring park itself is this massive sanctuary of greenery and many many hot as well as cold pools. Not too sure how beneficial the water was to our skin tho cause I didn’t smell much sulfur.

WOOTS! Egg boiling wth.
27

They had a spot designated for egg boiling, and it was a good thing we came prepared!

It so happened that we were served severely undercooked half-boiled eggs (they were more like 30%-boiled) for breakfast, so clever Su-Ann had the bright idea of tapau-ing a few eggs to recook at the hot springs.

Smuggled 5 of them stuffed down my water bottle plus another 2 wrapped up in tissues in Su-Ann’s bag. Damn cheapskate aunty skillz I know don’t kutuk pls.
28

Very very very hot spring. Fall inside confirm become boiled human.
31

Honeyboo and I at one of the huge pools.
32

Boiling “eggs” lol.
33

Oooh the hard work paid off!! (You just KNOW a girl doesn’t cook when she thinks boiling eggs are hard work)
34

Yup. 25 years old, those two.
35

Ice cream break!!!
36

We finally came to the mother of all Sungai Klah hot spring pools: The Mountain Spring Pool. It was nice and cold and had the giant “octopus” slide thingy which was real cool and brought out the children in us.

And so we said, “Screw this, let’s just get wet!”. Or at least some of us did.
38

*Splish splash*
39

Woohoo!!!
40

The wet vs the dry.
41

Anyhoo, we were well prepared (some more so than others) and had brought along a set of dry clothes to change into. Some people *coughnotme* had even had the forethought to bring along soap, shampoo and conditioner wth.

Su-Ann and Mr Mahmud from Iran.
42

Following our expedition, we were supposed to have bak kut teh at Sungai Buloh for lunch. But seeing as it was already around 2pm and we were all dying of starvation, we decided to swarm upon some random ulu place to ease our aching bellies.

After that, Edm dropped us girls at Su-Ann’s house where I took over and drove the other girls back to Subang.

Only problem was that I was so sleepy I couldn’t focus, and ended up ramming into the guard house palang. But luckily nothing happened to my car, don’t know about the palang. And then my GPS died so we had a slight panic attack.

Finally arrived home in one piece woots.

All in all, the Kursus Induksi turned out to be not as bad as I expected, especially since I attended with wonderful friends =)

My New Baby

Crabby alert!

Brought home my third baby cause I think Chloe was picking on Rascal too much and they needed a new sibling to help ease the tension.

She came in this beautiful pure white smooth shell, and I wanted to name her Lilian.
6

But then they had a reshuffling of the shells (like immediately after I put her into the crabitat so I didn’t even have the chance to take a pic of her in her original shell ish!) and so I decided that “she” was to be a “he”, so Chloe and Rascal now have a new baby brother named Chester =)

Chloe -> Rascal -> Chester.
1

Cabut!
9

According to hermit crab websites (yes, such things do exist), I’m supposed to give them weekly baths – so I do, although I cannot fathom why. I don’t think they enjoy the baths very much.

Forming a hermit crab pyramid in a bid to escape.

Let me out mama! T.T

Pretty Chloe with her brand new leopard outer shell + purple exoskeleton.

BOOYA!
3

Chester’s exoskeleton is damn ugly actually. Can’t wait til he molts lol. Thank god I didn’t name him Lilian man, can you imagine a Lilian who looks like that?!!
4

Rascal is still the cutest cause he’s so chubby!
5

OM NOM NOM cat coming to pat kua.
12

Monster Kat iz a-comin!
10

They kept tipping over their old water bowl, so I decided to use some random ashtray my dad stole from his office instead since it was too heavy for them to overturn.
13

All huddled up cozily together.
11

The hills are alive~ With the sound of music~
15

Oh by the way!!! I found out that hermit crabs actually communicate using some sorta weird language!!!

It’s like they scrap their shells together to produce this weird clicking sound. Well, at least Rascal does it. I’ve never actually heard the other 2 reply him. Maybe he’s just a bit spastic lar.

Chloe flaunting her new leopard shell.
16

Used the circle of coral to make a deeper sand pit on the inside so they could burrow.
14

I wish my crabitat was bigger, but I really don’t have the space to keep it anyways. Sigh. Quite kesian also lar to see them trapped in such a small enclosure. Although it’s waaaay better than what the petshop was keeping them in.

stupid psycho

LI PING!! IT IS OK TO WEAR A DRESS MORE THAN TWICE!

STOP WASTING PRECIOUS MONEY!!!!!!!111911

Don’t panic! No one will know if you don’t tell *deep breaths.

Watch the full “The Final Lecture” on Youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo

It’s a final lecture given by this super inspiring guy who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer (and who died not too long after). First watched him on Oprah Winfrey and ZOMG I kept crying!!! Damn touching ok dunno why God wanna gasak all the good people for himself huu.

Video is very long, but be patient. Unless you’re some stupid fool who doesn’t want to learn life’s greatest lessons wtf.

Or you can watch the shortened version he delivered on Oprah:

Cris My Boo

Super overdue photos of our “breakfast” (11.58AM is still AM by definition wat) at Pappa Rich right before she left to commence her Housemanship in Australia boo.

LOOK! ANENEH BOYFRIEND!!
3

I’m not being racist lar haiya. Vijay Sukumaran (I think) is like this super cool talkative dude la. We had to literally drag him and Shiu Kao apart cause the 2 were talking even more than us girls wtf.

4

Cris’ super chio ride.
5

It sort of bugs me that everyone’s moving abroad to get ahead in their careers.

I know I know, it’s for their benefit but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck.

I miss everyone =(

*sniffs

Feeling sort of depressed, which probably explains the RM700 splurge yesterday boo.

FML.

Su Khok’s Farewell

So his month long trip back home finally came to an end, and the night before his flight, we had dinner together at the restaurant we fondly call “Stadium Steamboat” in KL.

But right before dinner, it was a mad rush for me to put together a sort of incentive to get Su Khok to quit his job in the UK and return home for good.

2-in-1 Thumbtack bulletin board + Papan hitam, and lots of cute decorative accessories.
1

9-in-1 (so worth the RM29.90 haha) magnetic photo frame.
2

Blinged up the blackboard duster with leftovers from Chloe’s shell.
3

Printed a collage of photos taken during the past month.
4

And… TADAH!
5

9 ugly faces and one HOLY MOLEY butt crack lolz! (Sorry Yun and Shiu Kao terpaksa share)
6

Completed everything about 5 minutes AFTER Alfred and Yen arrived at my house to pick me up I’m so sorry.

Same baggies ❤
7

Petronas Twin Towers. Not available in UK.
8

Restoran Stadium Negara, along Jalan Lee Kwan Yew or Yap Kwan Seng or something like that. Near Zouk.
9

At first I wanted to get everyone to leave short messages on the papan hitam side of the board. But then the smart ass Alfred said that we should turn it into a contract to force Su Khok to finally come home for good.

Unwillingly leaving his signature along the dotted lines =)
10

The terms of the “OR ELSE” clause were later on determined to be “Chao ku ku” wtf.
11

And yeah, I’m not that stupid. I brought along super glue plus a sheet of transparency and glued the transparency on top of the papan hitam so he couldn’t erase the contract with the blinged duster.

So what will it be? Money but kena chao ku ku?
13

Saje camwhoring.
12

After going through the Censorship Board.
14

Su Khok was supposed to go home to get a good night’s rest after dinner, but we ended up heading to Pappa Rich for a yumcha session instead.

At Pappa Rich, he finally found out that NO JAE SHEN IS NOT MY BOYFRIEND lolzzzz. Cause throughout dinner, JS and I kept calling each other pet names and I treated JS like my kuli and this Su Khok got more and more confused as to whether we were together or not damn kao stupid ok.

Tsk tsk.
15

We “broke up” at Pappa Rich wtf.
16

Ms Khor and Ah Chin.
17

The wonderful genius somehow managed to scoop her whole ice cream onto the table.
18

Scrambling to salvage her ice cream.
19

Mau nangis sudah.
20

Found out that the first ice kacang wasn’t even her’s, cause her’s was supposed to be “tak mau kacang, tak mau cendol, tak mau ini itu” and without the ice cream. The greedy pig just ate whatever was put in front of her wth.

So yeah, her own ice kosong came so she didn’t have to cry after all.
21

Video of us trying to make “half sad half happy” faces wtf. Except for Shun who was just making a normal face all the while wth I think she totally blur lar jio.

Shoved Alfred to the back which is why his face is like that hahahaha.
22

Were we moving or was the camera moving?
23

About midnight, Alwyn, Kien Fei, Jae Shen and I headed up to Genting to makan angin while the rest went home to zzz. Damn mou liu I know.

Recharging batteries.
24

It had been raining the whole day so it was freezing!
25

Helping Kien Fei put on my extra jacket lol.
26

Zomg sangat gay!
27

*LAAAAAAAAAAAAH~
28

The SKII Effect.
29

We left Alwyn alone at the roulette table and went to play Rich Little Piggies wth.
30

Emerged as Poor Little Dummies =(
31

Alwyn play halfway kena controller error so potong.
32

In the end, no losses and no wins were made, so it was all just in good fun.

Flew down Genting and headed south towards KLIA cause we wanted to send Su Khok off as a surprise. Arrived there in just 1.5 hours so you can imagine how fast Alwyn drove ler. It was only 7.30am when we reached KLIA and Su Khok’s flight was at 10.45am so we ended up being earlier than him .

Sakais.
33

In the end our surprise tanked cause Su Khok “accidentally” read the sms I sent his sister apalar no privacy wan meh your sister how can you simply go read her messages ish!!!

Looking fresh and sprightly – all prepared for the 13 hour flight back to UK boo.
34

Mister McD who has been abused by passers-by countless times.
35

Asking the guard if his hairdryer will pass through security lol so vain!
36

One last group shot. Dunno why Kien Fei was holding my bag.
37

One last manly handshake.
38

One last goodbye.
39

One last hug.
40

And it’s back to the UK.
41

Hopefully for only the next 6 months, yes yes?

Got home at 11am and was freaking exhausted!!! Although admittedly I did get quite a lot of sleep in the car and on the electronic roulette table while Alwyn was playing lol. Slept til 7.30pm so yeah my Sunday was basically a huge waste =(

Anyhuu, see you soon Wong Su Khok!!! We’ll have even more fun the next time around ya.

Shiu Kao’s 24th @ Bar Mitzvah

Yep, Shiu Kao was the first one amongst us to reach the unenviable age of 24 on the 2nd of January damn kao early.

Boo. Somehow 23 sounds so much nicer than 24, don’t you think?

Celebrated his big day at his friend’s bar, strangely called Bar Mitzvah, at Neo Damansara in Damansara Perdana.

Posing with Blackie while waiting for Alfred to pick me up.
1

Reached Alwyn’s house only to find out he was still Dota-ing with Kien Fei and hadn’t taken his bath wth 14 years old meh! ARGH GUYS!

Played with Woolie while waiting for Alwyn to mandi kerbau.

Not too long after, Alwyn emerged from the bathroom and we then picked Su Khok up before zooming down to Klang for a dinner of bak kut teh.

I was, of course, dressed rather inappropriately for a BKT dinner in Klang so a couple of curious stares were in order.

Ate like frigging A LOT between the 5 of us.

Yes yes I’m just a kalafeh.

(9 bowls of BKT + 12 plates of rice)/(4 guys + 1 kalafeh). Do the math.

Kien Fei showing off his cinapek skills (Note the puddle of spilt tea around the pot lol).

Took a pitstop at Kamdar Klang of all places to get a last minute birthday gift for Shiu Kao. Why oh why are we always such procrastinators? It’s no wonder 99% of our presents turn out to be super nonsense.

This year, we got him a Super Special High High Quality 3-in-1 Over-Nighter Kit. For when he stays over at Yun’s place.

Jeng jeng. Pillow, bolster and mat. High high Kamdar quality.

At first we wanted to get him a Manchester United mat, but then the dude told us they were sold out.

SO we ma buy him the next best thing – a Liverpool mat.

LOLZ!!!

The rationale was that he would be able to pijak on Liverpool everyday mar. But then hor, he’s gonna use it when he sleeps at Yun’s house wor. Is lying on the mat still considered menghina Liverpool?

Anyhuu, totally forgot to take a photo of the mat’s design boo =( But I’m sure everyone knows how the Liverpool emblem looks like right?

Shopping in Kamdar: FUN!

Drove back to Subang so Alwyn could change outfits (wtf like girl only) before arriving at our destination at 9.35pm. Wow only 5 minutes late, damn punctual!

According to the guys it’s cause there was only one girl in the car, and that one girl wasn’t the driver/Shun. Wtf.

House specialty was Morriston Gold, 2 bottles for RM555 I think. Cheap cheap. Yes I brought 2 handbags cause Aunty Liping had to bring her whole house along.

Stupid guys kept popping into the background argh!

AHAH finally the attention is all mine =)

Took me A LOT of patience and A LOT of time to finally get a pic of them with all eyes open.

Yun, Uncle Alex wtf, Kitty and Ze Han.

Orang ramai yang aku tak kenal.

Yun the honourable gf and I.

More of Uncle Alex wtf, Kitty and Ze Han.

WOAH. Not good. This is what happens when a bad angle combines with a head going into reverse gear.

Me and batangs. Thanks to CARISSA YAP, KHOR YENLI and LAM SHUN CHIN who FFKed (Must put full name to make them malu a bit).

Camwhored with Kien Fei while the other guys were taking a ciggy break aih. Da boy gotz skillz!

Forced the waiter to pretend to shake something for my photo lol.

Yes bar was empty save for our group.

3AR Mitzvah (Jaeshen: What’s that 3 in front? I’m your number 3 is it? WTFHAHAHAH! Inside joke, sorry.)

Neo Damansara is still super quiet and ulu. Not really a good place to run a bar don’t you think?

Midnight struck and we all gathered around the cake to usher in Shiu Kao’s 24th birthday.

Well, I suppose it can be considered half her present too.

In case you’re wondering, we used the mat to wrap around the pillow and the bolster cause there’s no way in hell we were going to susah payah tape newspaper all around it. And then we got so bored we started drawing on the mat lolz. But it’s ok, its only the underside ma didn’t destroy the beautiful LIVERPOOL motif also.

ZOMG I still can’t get used to this number!! 24 24 24 should be a tv series, not our age!!!

And then things quickly went downhill from then on for Shiu Kao who downed half a bottle of whisky along with 2 pints of Carlsberg thanks to his wonderful girlfriend. I think she was just trying to get him drunk ASAP so she could go home earlier to sleep lol.

Yup. He died soon after this.

And this.

Teaching Su Khok the Art of Bimbo.

My dahlings <333threethreewhygotthreebehindwanahwtfbetul.

The difference between a professional and a noob: It’s all in the eyes.

Birthday boy decided to take the party outside.

Let me guess. Char koey teow?

Got nothing better to do while waiting for him to finish puking.

If you see your name here, please pay up to Alwyn.

Mat getting out of shape edi.

Bored artists at work.

Just in case the night was all just a blur to him.

I’m sorry, my drawing lacks a bit in the talent department.

Finally, Shiu Kao stopped puking and we decided it was time to call it a night. Dragged his ass into the car omg thank goodness Yun can drive his car so macho. Next time if my bf drunk how ah? I think die die also he won’t let me touch his car lor. Unless he drives a Kelisa too! Hmmm.

More puke upon reaching his house. He could hardly stand up man!

Rugi only he didn’t puke a minute earlier while he was still outside the house. His mum is gonna be so pissed.

Went to comfort Yuki who was in the toilet probably feeling kind of bewildered by all the commotion.

After that Yun left to probably go scrub off the layers of dried crusty puke from her arms while Alfred, Su Khok, Ze Han and I yumcha-ed at Tanjung.

***

It’s such a sad thing Shiu Kao probably only got to enjoy 30 minutes of his birthday before dying lolz. I really don’t understand why guys enjoy torturing themselves like this just to show they’re man wtf.

Very man meh? I think very stupid lor. But what do I know, I’m not man also.

Anyway yeah, HAPPY 24TH BIRTHDAY! For the next 1 month all of us will have to call you kor kor edi proud or not!
