Lesson of the day is to not let your garbage(especially if you have left over spaggheti) fester for about five days. We decided that it was high time to throw away the rubbish in the kitchen and when I bent over to pull the bag out, I reeled back in horror. SO FUCKING GROSS LA!!!!
White maggots lined the rim of the garbage bag and wriggled almost in unison, like a tribal dance around the mountain of milk cartons, banana peels and remnants of spaggheti. I used two Tesco plastic bags as gloves and grabbed the entire garbage binÂ and hurried out of the house, screaming.
I so wish I had my camera.
It was so damn tiring carrying the approximately 2-3kg garbage bin with extended arms, walking a distance of about 50m to the big rubbish dump at the top of our street. Setting the garbage bin on the mound of grass nextÂ to it, I screamed again when I opened it and couldn’t throw it. Lie Yuen decided to be the braver one and took the rubbish bag out and threw it inside the big rubbish dump. Sorry I didn’t help Lie Yuen. Forgive me?:(
Then the both of us looked at the sticky and stained rubbish bin and I screamed somemore. “I’ll buyÂ a new one…” I said. “Argghh, damn wasting,” said Lie Yuen and with a flick of her FINGER, she tossed the garbage bin into the big dumpster.
LOL. ONE FINGER ONLY OKAY. It’s amazing what fear can do to humans.
Philosophy test was so so. Philosophy is not even an important paper in my course. I ask you, is your LAN subject important to you? The lecturers close one eye one right when they conduct exams? Right? Right.
So my lecturer must be a newbie because she was pretty hard core about the exam.(even though the questions did not slaughter me completely).She actually booked the exam hall where we conduct our finals and so I set out to do my test and fell asleep half an hour before the paper ended. I think I even started dreaming in my sleep.(Read: it was a good sleep).
So the funniest thing is that my lecturer actually conducted personal reviews for each and everyone of us. She marked all 37 papers within 24 hours. 0_0.
It’s funny because our own core subjects’ lecturers do not even bother conducting personal reviews for our exam papers(though that would definitely help), so I don’t really see the logic since this is a LAN subject.
She called my name in a condescending tone, “Lai Pei Shan!~~”
I roused from my morning slumber and went to her table.
“Your long answer question is horrible! I can only give you 10/20 marks for this, you know? You were sleeping after the paper! You had no time??” she asked.
“No, I had no idea.” I replied. Wahhahaa. Damn funny. I really don’t know how to answer mah, what else can I do? lol.
That aside, both batch 1 and batch 2 of the dentistry course had their elections today to form a Dental Student Association here in my university.
I got the Secretary post! Woot! Actually it was shameless self pimping. I just wanted to get active and not waste my university life behind stacks of books and notes.Â Our first project will be to organise a Dental dinner sometime in February. So surely the girls are thinking “ala prom”.
Imagine the protests generated when my dean suggested that we go back to the restaurant where we did Prof. Luke’s farewell. LOL. So cute. Generation gap.
We’ll be scouring for some hotels(there’s only a grand total of 3 to choose from in the whole of Sungai Petani). But I’m sure we’ll find it. Hehe.
And now for the obligatory 56k killing spree.
My stressball bear listening to Poh Yee’s iPod.
Making dentures is a looooooooong process. After waxing the bite blocks(which will determine the positions of the teeth), we had to put them into the simulator to see if they occlude properly. After that, we will prop it up on the articulator to hold the bite blocks in place. I think the next step would be to position the teeth. I think, I THINK.(haven’t had any practical classes on the positioning of the teeth yet).
That’s me trying to point the tip of the needle to the midline of the upper bite block.
I love this grinding thing! Sorry, I don’t know the name for it. But you can grind your casts on it with ease. We were having fun making various things like heart shaped plaster of paris and the likes.
I bercomel with my upper jaw cast.
Assessing the correct position of the casts and the bite blocks.
And when you’re satisfied, it’s time to mix the plaster of paris.
Mixing, ensuring that there are no air bubbles.
Sorry lah, but I quite like the photos of me mixing. So natural!
My favourite plaster mixing shot of the three.
Putting plaster on the cast. This is to hold it in place on the upper portion of the articulator.
Sett and Chwan Horng doing their work under natural light. And natural light yields good pictures.
And I’m done! Yay!
The rest of the busy bees.
That’s Fizah in the distance. After we were done mounting our casts and bite blocks on the articulators, we put them aside.
I came home on Monday to find a medical dictionary in that position in front of Li Shen’s room. It’s damn weird, that’s why I took a picture.
And oleh kerana sudah very long time I tak bercamwhore, this is a random selection(serious!) from a series of many photos. And it is also because Steven is doing his super keng sleeping position.
I’d also like to introduce you to one of the better things from our yesteryears. The After School Ice Cream Man!! I think my uni is the only uni in MalaysiaÂ which has an ice cream man outside. Back in Taylor’s, we had more ‘grown up’ vendors which sold fruits, tau foo fah, fusion drinks, waffles etc.
But the old conventional ice-cream is still damn delicious. I am obsessed with the Yam flavoured one.
And even more delicious when it is covered with nuts. Super kao delicious!
Ooomph! Unstable icescream, hence the double cone.
I love yam ice cream. I don’t understand why some people can hate it so much.
Stupid Brenda took a photo of me when I was reading Shanghai Baby and eating ice cream. Hehe.
Oooh! Ooh! I received a second request to do a review from Reviewme.com 🙂
Layan okay? It’s about dental scholarships. How appropriate.
