Common Gynaecological Problems in Women - A Health Talk

I attended a health talk on Common Gynaecological Problems in Women by Dr. Narinder Singh from Island Hospital, Penang in conjuction of Agilent Health Week. I must say, he is one cute ObGyn! He even models a uterus himself to better illustrate what's going on inside there in certain health condition. Haha. You could only imagine how a guy did that up to Victoria Secret level and not cheap porn.

To wrap up today's session:

1) Know your body, girls. If something goes wrong or does not look or feel normal, go to your doctor. Don't just talk to your girlfriends.

2) To whom it may concern; never miss your pap smear.

3) Don't frighten yourselves from getting information about your health condition. Be curious, be cautious. We have advanced health technology; you just need to reach for the help.

4) Skip buying more shoes, handbags or garments you don't really need and spend the extra money on HPV vaccination - per the doctor. Didn't I tell you he is a cute ObGyn? ;)

Writing about this in my blog reminds me to my grandmother. She is traditional and these are taboo to her. I remember when 3R started to poke the taboo bubble, talking about pads, menstrual and all - she was furious. She practically called us - my aunties and me - shameless for talking about that like it is nothing.

I could not blame her. She was raise with that kind of dignity. Women on her era keep this stuff a very secret secret and having it known to the men would literally mean a disgrace to them. And men that time should be very oblivious to the women thingy.

And women nowadays are too loud and open, even for me.

I am traditional, though not to that extent. But I don't discuss about me or other women with guys. Especially when it is obvious the guy is nowhere near the intellectual path. I consider that hit (read: dirty jokes/talk) as an insult. But if it is a healthy discussion, fine.

I don't see any value discussing this matter with anybody who obviously doesn’t care much, even to respect you in a way. And yes, I don't approve girlfriend-sharing and boyfriend-caring over the information. Go share and care about something else! Get married if you are that curious about your body. I once knew a guy who always asks and I seriously think that is so impolite.

So my darling girlfriends, take good care of your health <3

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!


*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
These.
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
