When Everything Is Over.

Have not been updating my blog for a very long time. Well, being preoccupied with so many kind of home task and events here in Moscow. The ladder to climb up to be a doctor in the future is not easy, it’s really steep and full with lots of obstacles. Recently, I’ve just finished two of my major papers which is Anatomy and Histology. Histology is not that tough to me just that we got to be really precise when looking at those slides. Anatomy made my nerves wrecked and I didn’t get to eat well before the final examination. It’s a real wide and huge subject so far but the final results really made me happy. All those hard work and sleepless nights paid off well.

I will always put on replay mode on a single song for every single final paper that I sit for. When I was to complete my first year finals, Biology was the final paper. Yeah, Biology again during first year. Welcome to Moscow. We’ve repeated every single thing we learnt during A-levels. Anyway, I’ve played Talking To The Moon by Jason Chen before my Biology paper. The best part of it is, I took the flight back to Malaysia right after the exam. There were only like 4-5 hours left before my flight right after my exam. That was the best feeling ever after finishing an exam.

Then, last semester, second year first semester. Histology exam came first. We had a group studies all night long and right before the exam, we played The Final Countdown by Europe. We were all hyped up by the song and went for the exam with confidence. I thought that I could sit for the exam first but I didn’t get to as the queue of candidates was too long to sit for the examination. In the end, I’ve waited for about 4-5 hours and then, I got to sit for my exam. Came out from the exam hall with a big smile and felt relieved.

The after results of sitting for my Histology paper didn’t last long as after 3 days, it was my Anatomy paper. I was like a crazy guy who just came out from the jungle studying like a mad cow. Books after books, notes after notes. Imagining that I will need these knowledge I’ve gained from Anatomy when I am a HO in the future. Being a doctor will never be an easy task. Lot’s of effort are needed in the future. Not only in the future, but from now onwards. As I told you, before every single finals, there would be a song to listen to. So, what would the song be played on the replay mode before Anatomy final exam? It was Safe and Sound sang by Megan Nicole and Tiffany Alvord. So, what was the result for my Anatomy exam? It was an excellent result! I was really satisfied on all that I’ve done for both my final exam for the second year first semester. Hope for the same this semester.

I actually did the same thing which is to take the earliest flight back to Malaysia right after the exam. I took the midnight flight right after my exam so that I could actually rest a while in my dorm. I went back with some friends and we were totally happy with our final outcome and the decision to book the flight right after the exam when we actually haven’t sit for the exam.


Right before boarding the plane back to Moscow to continue chasing my dream.

P.S. Malaysia is the best place to live at for a long term period. 1 Malaysia! I love you always!

Kursk, Russia 2011

Hola! It’s going to be a post on my own adventurous trip to a place which was 8 hours past which I have never been before which is Kursk, Russia! It’s tough to go around when the people around you are not talking in the language that you are familiar with but, thank Lord that everything went fine for the entire trip. Took the train from Kurskaya Vakzal, Moscow to Kursk itself at 12.50am! Yes, a midnight train! It’s so cool that it really looked like you were at the Harry Potter train station at that moment when it was so cold with all the mist surrounding you. Here are some pictures taken at the train station.


The waiting hall area. This is just a part of the whole big awesome train station! <3


This was taken when I was still waiting for the to announce which platform I should go to, to go onboard my train! It’s a total new world as every single announcement was made in Russian language there! Burh! It’s so important to know how to converse in their language here in Russia. But, I really do enjoy learning and conversing with them in Russian language.


This was taken at the platform.

Now, moving on how it really look like in the train for all the first timers out there! Truthfully, I was so worried that the condition of the train would be so bad till I couldn’t sleep throughout the 8 hours journey.



It was really comfortable as when you are on the bed, and the train is moving, you will feel like you are in the rocking baby cradle!

After the 8 hours journey…..




Went to the Sports Hall of Kursk State Medical University.


One of the best shopping mall in Kursk! ‘Evropa’ Went there a lot of time throughout my whole trip! It was just a simple day on my arrival day. Had breakfast at Nurul Bebby’s place. She made awesome Nasi Lemak for me with popiah! Then, I went to their sports hall to watch their own sports event, then to Evropa, then back home to cook for the whole house an awesome dinner! Hope they loved it. <3

The second day!


My friend took me to this restaurant to have my brunch! Price was reasonable and the food was just awesome! It’s difficult to find good food at good price in Moscow!


This was mutton soup! Superlicious!


Cheese soup! The taste of cheese was just so rich! I could have it everyday if I am studying in Kursk.



Me and Sarah, the one who allowed me to stay at her house for the whole trip! ))


Ashvinny, Emily and me.


Not only going there for a trip, but I did attended The Road to Gorky Games event! Was there throughout the event! Supported all the way! <3


Then, went to the Kursk State Medical University to take a picture. Open-mouthed smile 


As usual, I am always craving for food although I knew that I will have a heavy dinner within a few hours time! Tried ‘Zhar Pizza’!


Cheap and also YUMMY!


After having some heavy tea time meal, walked along the street and came across with this church. It looks awesome and I love the bell chiming around! Felt so calm!


After that, we went to the Steak House in Kursk to celebrate.

The last day in Kursk, woke up at 7am in the morning to get to Bebby’s place and the temperature actually dropped to –4 degree Celsius at that moment. It was a real bad one as I was only wearing to layers of thin jacket. But anyway, I survived! Open-mouthed smile


This Gogolia Street early in the morning! After resting a while in Bebby’s place, I went out by myself to have a free leisure time in Kursk without anyone bringing me around! Adventure!


The sunrise in Kursk!


The memorial park in Kursk for the soldiers who defended for their state long time ago!





The same church again. And finally, back to the Sarah’s house before leaving back home at night.


This is their kitchen! Enjoyed cooking two dinners for the whole house throughout the whole stay over there! It was so awesome! I really did felt like home and I do miss that place a lot now!


The awesome big toilet! Open-mouthed smile


Last photo with the great people in Kursk! Miss you guys!

P.S. Reached Moscow on Monday at about 5am and came back to my hostel, wash myself up, and straight went for class at 8.30am! It was tiring but the whole trip was just awesome! Thank you, Sarah, Adrian and Emily for providing me an awesome place to stay at during my whole trip over there! A big thanks to all others who were entertaining me, providing me awesome food and so on too back in Kursk!

All the best all Kursk-ian! Shall be back and we shall go to Celebrity! Smile with tongue out There were more agendas which actually happened back there which I did not write it out here but it shall stay in my heart and mind always!
