Twitter users that we'll meet.

This is really funny but true.

Dreaded conversation

Being in medical school has its pros and cons. Repetitive, boring conversation being one of the turn-offs. Don't worry, we understand why some people ask them. At first, it was all fun. However as the years go by, it gets tiresome, especially when the same person ask them every single time they meet you and they don't seem to bother remembering what you've told them before.

Thrill the World Kuala Lumpur

I've forgotten to share this video of the Thrill The World event in Kuala Lumpur last year. Thrill the World is an annual event since 2006 in which MJ enthusiasts get dressed like zombies and perform the Thriller dance for charity. MJ's death last year brought more awareness for this event and that's how one of my friend in the US told me about their website. To cut the long story short, I took part in TTW. I know that it's crazy to travel up to KL from Seremban to take part in an event full of goofy strangers. It was exam season and my friends thought that I must be mad but if we are too careful in life, we'd miss out a lot right?

It was really cool! On the day of the event, zombies all over the world danced simultaneously at the same time. The press were there to cover the event. We were on MSN Malaysia.  I got to know so many zombies (many of them from the healthcare industry) and we still keep in touch.


 Unfortunately, I heard that the organisers don't intend to have one this year :-( Green hooded zombie. Ditto.

Updates and Batu Pahat

Cherry Blossom Festival Celebrates Washington's Symbol Of Spring

It's been quite a while since I've last posted anything here. *pangs of guilt* Anyway, I'm currently in Batu Pahat and will be here for the coming 5 months before finishing my undergraduate training.

How do I find it here? I'm enjoying it actually. Many of my friends kinda dreaded coming here because Batu Pahat is supposed to be a more ulu place than Seremban. But being a small town boy at heart, I didn't mind it one bit. Personally, the only advantage of staying Seremban is that it's near KL and all the major shopping outlets and also my orthodontist :-P Over here, I get to go back to Kluang when I want to, although I really haven't had much chance to utilize this advantage yet. My weekends are freaking packed! (I've already spent two weekends sleepless because of reports.)

On the other hand, I'm absolutely enjoying the training in Hospital Batu Pahat. The staff are friendly and the environment is nicer. Being a district hospital, the variety of cases is of course lesser but I really have not been affected yet so far. Of course Seremban does have it's own perks and I can actually list them all here

  1. People in IMU
  2. Jusco Seremban
  3. Tembak Laksa (Next to Asia Laksa in Senawang)
  4. Yong Tau Fu Foo Sam
  5. Banana Leaf Rice
  6. Beef noodles in any of the 5 outlets in Seremban
  7. Starbucks *sniff*

Hmmm looks like food is big on my list. Don't judge me.

The food here definitely trumps Seremban any time. FUIYO. Maybe BP pales in comparison to Penang as a food paradise but after living in Seremban for like 2 years, I've had more than my fair share of mamak food.


Therefore the culinary options here are a godsend. Here are some of the places that I think are worth going for food.
  1. Segenting Seafood Village. Read about it here.
  2. Restoran Yong Hoe (Taufu Fa) (Green arrow)
  3. Laksa place Location here (Green arrow)
  4. Nasi Beryani Gam (Nasi Beryani Mat Shah and Nasi Beryani Power)
  5. Japanese food. There's a good restaurant in Jalan Jenang near the laksa place. I forgot the name but you can read about it here.
  6. The Katerina Hotel. I'm kidding. Serious. No food here. Go away.

Michael Jackson Flashmobs All Over The World

I've been spending some time watching videos of flashmobs paying tribute to Michael Jackson. It all began when a group of dancers from Stockholm, Sweden, began organizing a flashmob to dance 'Beat It' in public places all over the city. Hundreds of people joined the effort and after 30 minutes of dancing lesson, the most amazing dancing flashmob ever took place. Words would do no justice to what transpired that day.
Ladies and gentleman, I share with you the Stockholm Tribute to MJ.




That's not the end of the story. Bounce (the dancers who organized this) challenged other cities around the world to do the same thing.
Within days, similar flashmobs sprouted in cities around the world, to the beat of 'Beat It' or 'Thriller'.
Clearly, his music crosses geographical boundaries and cultures. Michael made his songs translate themselves.
