Looks like you guys didn’t pray hard enough for me.
THERE’S NO BROADBAND HERE!!!!! I have to take an RM10 taxi(bloody money gobblers) to the cybercafe whenever I feel like coming online. See the sacrifice I make for our communication? Hmm? Hmm?
wait. It IS that bad.
I’m not very mobile here because transportation costs a bomb and the public transport system sucks, or maybe I haven’t explored enough yet. I hitched a ride from my coursemate, a sweet guy called Josiah from Penang who is very shy and has problems hearing me(apparently I speak too fast and too soft) alongside WONG LISHEN(Yes, I’ll get to that) and a Jimmy Lie from SAM last year, to a cybercafe in a shoplot area. This is where I get my healthy dose of the internet. It is very saddening.
By the way I feel like killing the mofos screaming in the cybercafe. But Jimmy who is a hardcore gamer tells me that its normal. Culture shock, culture shock.
The people here are mostly from the Klang Valley so we all click quite well. The only thing that I was not expecting was the age range in my course. We have 18-23 year olds. Of course, I’m the youngest. Ahem. The dean of the faculty is very enthusiastic and he seems like a very ambitious man. He was the dean at the university of London and he was also the dean at the University of Hong Kong. So my doubts for this place has pretty much cleared up.
Where I’m at is called Asian Institute of Medicine, Science and Technology(AIMST). It’s founded by MIC and yes, the students here are mostly Indians and hence the food tends to lean towards the Indian variety. I HATE THE FOOD IT SO SUCKS. Nothing against Indians but I HATE THE FOOD ARGHHHH. My tongue is not the same.
Will you believe me if I tell you that the food in national service is better?
But the new campus which will be opening soon in Semeling, at the foothills of Gunung Jerai will have state-of-the-art technology. It is set to be the most beautiful university in the whole of Malaysia. Each hostel will have broadband connection and there will be air conditioning in ALL the rooms. Everyday the students here mutter: “I can’t wait for Semeling wei, when lah can we shift into Semeling?”
Honestly, the promise of Semeling is so enticing that I’m already trying to pimp my uni to all of you. Go to the website to see it for yourself. In the future, a dental hospital will be opened in the campus for the residents around the area. We will have a total of 110 dental chairs in the school of dentistry.
For the meantime, don’t expect me to update much. I will be sorely disappointed to see my average hits of 450 a day to drop like mad. But what to do, education is important. If all goes well, I will be a dentist in 2010!! I can pull teeths then!! Woot!!!!!!! Oh, yeah, this year, I’ll get to see cadavers in anatomy. How cool is that? Oh wait, dissect on them too. If I’m not wrong.
Will be coming back next weekend. So, take care folks. Lots of love. Don’t forget me.
p/s: my camera is dying on me. …..:(
