Oh joy…

Just when I was just telling my friend that no one reads my blog anymore,  I discovered that this site/blog about red dragon fruit actually linked to a post of mine about purple-red urine. No wonder when I was checking my blog stats, one of the search terms that led to my blog was “dragon fruits red urine color.” Mystery solved. Haha.

Blogrounds XXI

Sorry that this is a little behind schedule. Even though I’m jobless on holidays and supposed to be super-free, I was busy with some family issues last week, thus the delay. Anyway, here goes my first attempt at taking up the MMR Bloground Challenge

Adeline Wong, Bernard, DocFiles, Hooligan, Letti and Sbanboy are among those who blogged about Easter. Ain shares photos from the Indie for Glory gig at Little Havana held recently. CH Lee’s hair grows back.

Coolclare blogs about the 1st and 2nd day of the “Kursus Induksi” she attended at Kundasang. It has been a CME-filled week as Cytusm and Jimbo attended a ID conference in Georgetown while Fibrate went for a a less-than-regal dinner cum talk at Gulai House. Meanwhile, Vagus has gone to AACE 2007 in Seattle to scale the heights of endocrinology.

It also has been a travel-filled week as Ket Sang goes on a trip to Cornwall and Dr. Eay-Lalle recovers from a trip to Gap, Smangkok, Chilling. Raymond takes part in the Kapas-Marang Swimathon after postponing his root canal therapy while Saw Ling is all smiles after returning from Budapest and Prague. To the envy of some people, Tw was having fun watching the F1 race at Sepang.

On a more serious note, Cindy tells about her friend’s bad experience with a rude, sarcastic and insensitive doctor. eColi questions the need for the arbitrary 30-minute resuscitation before pronouncing someone is dead. Darren reflects on his 4 months of medical posting while Jinkhang starts his medical posting.

Is it possible to choke on a piece of “pisang goreng”? Ask a patient of Docyana’s. Doc talks about brand loyalty while Spinosum gets RM 5 off his next pizza. Tru-Asian introduces his cast of paintbrushes.

Imagine if an “apocalypse” of the blog world occurs… what would the last message be on your blog? Bernard and Yenjai shares what their last post would be.

Last but not least, learn how to make a condom case for your phone or PDA at DocFiles.

Whispering pectoriloquy

What is a whispering pectoriloquy?

A whispering pectoriloquy is the increase in vocal resonance, to the extent that when a patient whispers, his voice may be heard clearly with a stethoscope on his chest over an area of lung consolidation. I first read about it in Talley’s Clinical Examination book during my second year and I somehow liked the sound of the word ever since. Thus, the title of my “new” blog…

A new start…

Welcome to my “new” blog. Actually, I registered for this blog address around June last year. However, I wasn’t quite planning to blog here at that time, so it was just held as a backup for future use. Anyway, as CN- and I enter a new phase of life (working life), we decided that we wanted to start afresh, at a new place, to mark a new chapter in our journey through life. Don’t worry, we did not have a fall out or anything. We are still the best of friends 😉

Well, this site is currently still under construction, and I hope to get it up and running as soon as possible. Funny how I had so many ideas for this site before the exams but now that I’ve got all the time in the world (somewhat) to tweak at it, I’ve been struck with extreme laziness…
