Easter Sunday

Today is Easter Sunday for Orthodox churches here in this country. I didn't really know about it until I saw something in the supermarket here yesterday. I went to bread corner to grab something for tomorrow's breakfast but it has nothing except...

Ya, only Easter cake! Looks like muffins with sugar cream as its topping.
It's very common for ppl here to buy this cake during this celebration. It has different sizes and shapes, but they're basically all the same in taste. Easter cake can be found in almost all food stalls along the street. Well, I've no idea why is this cake so popular here...maybe it has certain meaning behind? or just merely a symbolized food for Easter's day.

Still remember that I'd one post about Easter's celebration last month, and someone might wonder why is it again once more Easter celebration here. Well, ya we've 2 Easter's Sunday here, one is for Western countries (on 23 of March) and today's one (27 of April) is for Orthodox, where most Russians here are celebrating it.

I bought a small one since there's no other choice =p
The taste is still ok and it has raisins in it...just I don't really like its creamy topping, too sweet! >.<

This is a really tired week for me =( Don' t really know what things occupied me so much, but just feel like I've never had enough time to finish something in my plan... maybe because of many little simple things that all needed to be done at a time.

I've just finished final credit test for Tropical Biology today! well, it's an interesting subject in which you learn more about causative agents of many popular tropical diseases in human. We've learned the morphology(this part is boring...but important to know), epidemiology, route of transmission, life cycle, pathology and clinical features, treatments and preventions of the diseases.

Some of the worms are well-known in our community like malaria, which is a major health problem with ober 40% of the world population affected. Just a reminder, it's very important to maintain a hygienic way of lifestyles eg. always wash hand before and after doing something, keep your living place clean, having a proper dressing (no bare foot, use slipper at least when you're outside), be attentive when choosing food (especially meat products), make sure food is well cooked before serve, boil water before drinking, etc... simple things to do right? yet some just ignore it...

It's good to know some facts especially route of transmission into human body. I'm gonna share this in future post when I'm bit free =p I'm sure you'll feel disgusting when you read more about it, like for example the worm Schistosoma japonicum can stay in your intestine and produce 2000-3000 eggs per day! Just imagine...

Well, I'll share this in the coming post and I'm sure it's good for you to know as this is not uncommon disease among our society.
Time for nap =P Have a nice day! Stay tuned! ^^

Thanks to all Commentors!

Hi All!

First of all, a BIG THANKS to all of you who giving me opinions on how to make this blog better! I really appreciate all the suggestions given. I'm now planning to bring some big changes for my blog and it will be carried out step by step. It might take some time as I'm still a newbie in this area and I hope everything goes on fine =)

For the time being, I'm busy checking through all the names in my link list. It really takes time but I think it's worth it as I've found many faulty links, inaccessible web address and broken back-links. I'll make changes soon on for the link list once I finish this scanning.

And I'm sorry for no new updates these few days. I've just finished credit test on clinical pharmacology yesterday and today is the first day of tropical pathology cycle. I'm gonna be busy this whole week I guess...

Anyway, the blog will still be updated from time to time, so hope to see you around here often ^^
ohya, about the request of link changes, questions, etc in the chat box, Sorry for the delayed reply! I promise to reply as soon as possible once the link check is done.
Also, I'll make a 'Thank You' list sooner later, as a token of appreciation to those in contributing the ideas of changes in my blog, thanks again! =D

WIsh All of you A Nice Day!

Calm after the storm

Heavy rain yesterday and today mark the coming of real Spring here, after few episodes of weather alterations in past few weeks. Ya, weather forecast says it correctly, it is a raining week in Kursk here, almost everyday from this Monday till today, there's a sudden heavy rain with strong winds each day. And today, it's kinda a surprise, small snowflakes drop together with the rain! Maybe it's hardly seen if you're walking on the street, but I can see it clearly from window of my room (9th floor in hostel)

Well, guess what changes I notice following the raining days?

Yes, it's earth-worm! Everywhere on the street you can see earth-worms!
How many do you think inside this snapshot?
I bet there're not less than 100 earth-worms in this street I've seen on my way back from university! well, I've no idea why are they 'migrate' from soil to street, but it's definitely caused by the heavy rain here.

Look closer at this earth-worm... it's just big and long! It's longer than length of a pen, much bigger and longer than the earth-worms I've seen before! a very good fishing-bait =)

What Do You Think?


I need your help to give some opinions about my blog. As most of you know, this is my very first blog, which established at the end of year 2007 and only becomes active this year. I'm still learning how to make it in a better way that brings a nice and more convenient outlook to all.

What do you think about the appearance of my blog now? does it look ok? or just untidy and unorganised that causing eye-sore? What's the changes needed in your opinion?

I've thought of adding something new to my blog, eg widgets, search button, etc... but my blog has large enough contents that it will just make my blog longer and looks more messy if I continue to add new things in...

Thinking of changing templates, to make it more organised and better looking appearance...does it help?

Be frank please =)
I'm in need of real opinions and constructive comments from all of you.
Thanks in advance!

Microwave Popcorn

Microwave popcorn! hehe, maybe you have try it many times, but this is my first try! ^^ kinda good taste but I'd prefer the one which honey-coating =)

IT is wrapped in a small packet when I bought it from Magnesh supermarket. I'd been looking for honey-coated popcorn but only the butter-coated popcorn was available. well, didn't know much about the way to made it for the first time, just follow whatever instruction written on the packet. Pretty good to know that full instruction is clearly stated and popping hints are attached on the packet too!

Here are snapshots taken in sequence of preparation:

It's just easy as 1-2-3, and can be done within 10 minutes. Good choice of healthy snack! =)

Ever suffer from Gastritis?

As I've promised my sister to share something about gastritis, I'll make this topic as today's post =) Though it is a bit late, but it's never to late to know the fact ya right =p
Ya my sister was asking me in a sms whether or not to continue her medicine for gastritis prescribed by doctor. She asked so because of the allergy to the drugs used and wanna me to tell more facts about gastritis, which I'm going to share it. Well, just a share of what I've learned so far =)

Rather than writing full info about gastritis(which is bored really...and I believe most will not even bother to pay attention on it if i include pathogenesis, theories, mechanism of actions...etc), I'll make it easy and brief.

Gastritis simply means inflammation of the gastric mucosa of the stomach. It is of 2 types: Type A (caused mainly due to autoimmune disease) and type B (due to bacteria, which is more common). The following are known causes and factors related to gastritis:

- Bacterial infection (most often by Helicobacter pylori)
- Fungal infection (most often in people with immunodeficiency)
- Stress
- Excessive caffeine consumption (eg. Coffee)
- Parasitic infection (most often by Anisakis spp. from poorly cooked seafood)
- Bile reflux
- Drugs (NSAIDs and steroid treatments for other conditions)
- Cigarette smoke
- Autoimmune disorders
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Certain allergens
- Certain types of radiation
- Stomach injury
- Eating Disorders, such as Bulimia (common in women)

The main symptoms of gastritis are loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, headache, and dizziness. There is always pain and discomfort in the region of the stomach.
Other symptoms are a coated tongue, foul breath, bad taste in the mouth, increased flow of saliva, scanty urination, a general feeling of uneasiness, and mental depression. In more chronic cases, the patient may complaint of heartburn and a feeling of fullness in the abdomen, especially after meals. Often there is constipation, but occasionally, there may be diarrhoea due to intestinal catarrah.

If the diagnosis has been confirmed by doctor, drugs are often a choice for treatment. Treatment for gastritis usually consists of removing the irritant or the infection. In cases of infection, a doctor will most often prescribe antimicrobial drugs.
Helicobacter infection typically responds well to the triple therapy protocol (consisting of two antibiotics, and a proton pump inhibitor). Glad to know that nowadays, Quadruple therapy has a >90% success rate and includes PPIs, Bismuth subsalicylates, Metronidazole, and Tetracycline.
It is always good to finish the prescribed doses of drugs unless stated otherwise. This is to make sure that the treatment is at full course and prevent residual bacteria to develop resistance against the drugs.

It is good if you know what's the exact causes for your gastritis as full resolution will be achieved only upon removal of the causes. I've found these interesting alternative treatment other than drugs, which I think it's somehow good to know =)

- Gastritis treatment using Coconut
Coconut water is an excellent remedy for gastritis. It gives the stomach the necessary rest and provides vitamins and minerals. The stomach is greatly helped in returning to a normal condition if nothing but coconut water is given during the first twenty-four hours.
- Gastritis treatment using Rice
Rice gruel is another excellent remedy for acute cases of gastritis. One cup of rice gruel is recommended twice daily. In chronic cases where the flow of gastric juice is meagre, such foods as require prolonged vigorous mastication are beneficial as they induce a greater flow of gastric juice.
- Gastritis treatment using Potato
Potato juice has been found valuable in relieving gastritis. The recommended dose is half a cup of the juice, two or three times daily, half an hour before meals.
- Gastritis treatment using Marigold
The herb marigold is also considered beneficial in the treatment of gastritis. An infusion of the herb in doses of a tablespoon may be taken twice daily.

Well, here is the list of recommendation, which proven to be effective in relieving and curbing the symptoms.
-- Fasting, Water
The patient should undertake a fast for two of three days or more, depending on the severity of the condition. He should be given only warm water to drink during this period. This will give rest to the stomach and allow the toxic condition causing the inflammation to subside.
-- All-fruit diet
After the acute symptoms subside, the patient should adopt an all-fruit diet for the next three days and take juicy fruits such as apples, pears, grapes, grapefruit, oranges, pineapple, peaches, and melons.
-- Avoid alcohol, tobacco, spices, meat, sweet, strong tea/coffee
The patient should avoid the use of alcohol, tobacco, spices and condiments, meat, red pepper, sour foods, pickles, strong tea and coffee. He should also avoid sweet, pastries, rich cakes, and, aerated waters.
-- Have curd and cottage cheese
Curds and cottage cheese should be used freely. Too many different foods should not be mixed at the same meal. Meals should be taken at least two hours before going to bed at night. Eight to ten glasses of water should be taken daily but water should not be taken with meals as it dilutes the digestive juices and delays digestion. Above all, haste should be avoided while eating and meals should be served in a pleasing and relaxed atmosphere.
-- Well-balanced diet
He may, thereafter, gradually embark upon a balanced diet consisting of seeds, nuts, grains, vegetables, and fruits.

Other gastritis treatment may include:
--Warm-water enema, dry-friction
From the commencement of the treatment, a warm-water enema should be used daily for about a week to cleanse the bowels.The patient should be given dry friction and a sponge daily.
--Application of heat with a hot compress or hot water bottle
Application of heat with a hot compress or hot water bottle, twice a daily, either on an empty stomach or two hours after meals, will also be beneficial.
--Avoid hard physical, mental work, worries.
The patient should not undertake any hard physical and mental work.He should avoid worries and mental tension.
--Breathing exercises are essential
He should, however, undertake breathing and other light exercises like walking, swimming, and golf.

Remember! It is essential to know what's the real cause if you've suffered from gastritis. Relapsing is very common for this disease if the underlying pathology is not fully removed.
Hope this is useful for ALL! =D

One of the most common and famous local food in this little town is called 'sharvama' (in Russian) It is a mix of grilled pork pieces, Korean preservative carrot, mushroom, spring onions, and sometimes French fries or cabbage stripes, together with tomato sauce and mayonnaise, wrapped in a skin(made of flour, well..no idea what it called exactly =p) It is of 2 types, Sharvama lavash(in flour skin) and sharvama butke(in bread).

Ya, it is very similar to the one we've known -- Kebab. Maybe it is originated from kebab, just the people here modify the content and call it 'sharvama'. However, they are not the same, coz kebab has different ingredients and most of them are wrapped with bread. In this town, Kebab is sold at high class food court and restaurant while ppl can buy 'sharvama' from food stall in the market or by the roadside.

It is very delicious and tasty, very tempting food especially if you're hungry. Although the price rises up again last semester, from 30 Rub to 50 Rub (about Rm 7) per piece, but it is still a good choice of meal since eating other outside food here is probably double or triple the price of this (see here for more) I like it very much, so do my groupmates and other ppl here =)

This is one of the most famous sharvama stall, situated at the end corner near the entrance of the market. It gains better reputation over other sharvama stalls because of its special ingredients and spices used in making it. You can smell it from miles away.. ^^

Look at the grilled pork, they look so delicious and smell good!
We'd just ordered 4 sharvamas (me, Eddy, Kelvin and Liew) and this russian lady was busy preparing for it. Just in less than 5 minutes time, we'd our sharvama ready to be taken =D

Ya, one of the sharvama we'd ordered. The shot is not that good pretty much due to the cold windy weather making my hands shivering =s

A must-to-try food if you've chance to visit any part of Russia =)

The Day

IT is the first day of clinical pharmocology cycle today. This cycle will last for 1 and the half week. Nothing special with any other cycles except we all got 'pawned' by lecturer on the very first day itself due to some mistakes we did during the class. Well, it has been quite a long time we didn't get such a big bomb' and instead of being mad and down, we'd different feels most probably of slight 'excitement and refreshing' =p

And also we'd final exam on psychiatry subject today after the class of clinical pharmacology. Nothing much to say about this exam, one thing good is we can have it done before the semester ends. I was kinda tired after coming back to hostel and had a over-time nap till forgot the time for ping pong training session... >.<

Not a good feeling day. Something wrong with my stomach in the afternoon and continues till now, probably problem of the food I've taken... having few times diarrhoe and slight weakness ensues =(
Weather changes again abruptly today, no idea what's the exact temperature today, but it's probably around 4-6 C... still not that bad for me, but the strong wind is killing...

Just a simple day of mine...

World Tallest Skyscraper!

Once in the past when I was still a school kid, I'm so proud of Malaysia's Petronas Twin Tower, which was the world tallest building during that time when it finally finished its construction in 1998.

But now it's no more the tallest building. With the advanced technology and descent creativity of mankind, more and more countries compete to construct a more unique and taller building in the world. Taipei 101 Tower has taken over the world record to be the tallest building in 2004. It is 504m in height over KL petronas Tower which is 452m.

Yet after all I'm sure no one can beat this ones... sooner later in this year, it will be the tallest ever skyscraper in the history of the world...Just imagine, it is almost double the height of KL twin tower!
--> The Burj Dubai.

Compare the top 5 in the world! KL Twin Tower is now World 3rd.
(Credited to BurjDubaiskyscraper.com)

View over the construction site. It is planned to be accomplished soon in the end of this year! No one knows yet its exact height, but estimated to be around 850m!

Just Great and Magnificent! The yet-to-be World Tallest skyscraper!

Amazing right? I found this when I search through the interesting places in Dubai as I might have a chance to pay a visit there if my flight transition period is too long. There's a lot of interesting and wonderful places in Dubai, and quite a number of them claimed to be the 'World Most' and 'World Best'!

Well, I'll look for more info and share with you all when I confirm my trip over there =D

All in vain in seconds!

Today I'm really in bad mood! Just imagine that something you've worked up for several hours, combining all the related datas, information and statements from many different resources and just right before you finish the last step...bang! everything disappear and you've no way to trace back what you've done, no backup can be found, all your efforts just went in vain like that... >.< how will you feel in that moment? Have you ever had such experience? ...ya, it just happened to me...

I wrote a post about my points of view regarding HIV transmission rumours, which spread widely among the community of internet users. In this post, I wanna share some solid facts about these atypical way of HIV transmission so that more ppl know about the truth and correct idea of how exactly it can spread out. There's a large collections of these information, which I've to combine and extract them from different sources. It took up to 3 hours+ for me to do so. I've skipped my time for BMR event of the game, which I could rarely missed it before this. I was really tired but happy to see that my post was almost done. But guess what, just right before I finished my last sentence, I moved my mouse over the page and double clicked it... and my page disappeared!! I was stunned and couldn't believe what was happening.. was it gone? I quickly checked my history, my draft box, and even make it works offline, hoping to get back all that I'd just wrote... No, all had gone, this was just really disappointing! Few hours of works just wasted and gone in vain in a second of double-click =(

Well, I've no idea why I made a double-click over the page... it was really a very big mistake, but why the hell in this earth could a double-click close the page without any warning message?! ya, I'm using Advant Browser, and it was its default setting for double-click to close the page, which I knew only later. This is a very bad and not user-friendly default settings for closing a page. For IE (Internet Explorer), double clicks will only make it minimize but not closing the entire page. It is just ridiculous to bring down a page with a simple double-click >.< I was pissed off... well, nvm..after all, it's still my own mistake... =(

I should be more careful next time, especially when I see this line 'Could not contact Blogger.com. Saving and publishing may fail. Retrying...' I've no idea what was going on to my connection but I see those line quite often due to unknown reasons. I didn't really care whether if it is autosaved to draft before this, but now I know how pain it is to lose all the things that you've just wrote. I swear I would never let this happen again, a painful lesson for me...

Just wanna share this to you all, especially those using Advant Browser. Never double-click a page that you wish to continue to work on, it will cancel and close everything on that page (Well, maybe I'm still a noob to this browser, but it's still a good reminder to all)
About the lost post, I'll try to work it out again, but I need to rest now, it was 2.30am in the morning when that page was declared lost finally...

Local Restaurants

Just wanna share something about eating outside in restaurants here in kursk =)
It is very common and often for everyone of us to eat outside everyday especially if you're busy and have no time to prepare a good meal. Another reason that most ppl choose to have meal outside mainly because of the food is cheap and at reasonable price. Anyway, the story is different here in kursk.

If compared with other Asian countries like Malaysia and phillipine, it is much more expensive to eat outside here in Kursk. We as students here seldom having meal outside except for some birthday parties and special vacations. We rather choose to cook and prepare the food in the hostel, which is really much more cheaper than having it outside.
It is not surprise to spend up to Rm 100 per meal in the restaurant here. Sometimes for having a simple normal meal, you got to spend at least Rm 20, which is just enough to fill up for your stomach. The place where most reasonable price you can get for a meal is university canteen(Stalovaya in russian), of which the food there is partly subsidised by local government.

Some of you might wonder why is it so expensive to eat outside here? Is the food served really worth that much of price? well, in my opinion, I think it is all because of 'class' of the restaurants here. All, if not I bet at least 90% of the restaurants here are all 'High Class' restaurants and they're just so well decorated and looks luxurious. They put lots of efforts and money on designs and decoration, made the restaurants look like 5-star hostel. Food isn't the only main aim for what the restaurant is built, frankly speaking, they aren't really tasty sometimes, just the atmosphere in the restaurants is good and comfortable.

This is the pic of a restaurant nearby a metro station in Moscow. I didn't even dare to have a try after looking at the price.. it costs at least 600 rubs per person for a normal meal.

This is restaurant named Dacha, situated nearby my hostel. Well decorated and nice designs on the wall. Price is still considered ok (if you know what to order =p) and the place is great for group meeting or friends' gathering.

Guess how much is this meal cost? It costs nearly 300 rubs, which is about Rm 45...

Ya, this is part of pizza =)
This semester, I've most of my outside meal here with my groupmates in Broaster n' Baskin Robbins. The food is just nice and the best thing is this pizza, costs only 130 rubs per 8 pieces. Really worth it especially for those who want nice food and yet reasonable price. Kinda cool place for students =)

The prices above are for kursk region only. It is 2x, 3x or even 5x in capital Moscow, the most expensive(living expenses) in the world nowadays, edging out Tokyo, New York and other big cities. (see here to get more info about living costs in Moscow)
So, better make sure the price of the food before having any meal in restaurants here, otherwise you would have to pay an unexpectedly high amount of money just for a normal simple meal.

Thank God everything is getting almost done now after cleaning of the room for whole afternoon today. Apart from that, as you know (if you've read my previous post), it is now BMR event of 2Moons.

Best 2Moons Christmas Video

Aha! Just checked out the forum for the latest news and I've found this, the winner of December Dancing Girl Video Contest! It was supposed to announce the result of this contest earlier but due to some circumstances, Acclaim GM has postponed it till now. Anyway, Congratz to the winner, Windbringer2! The prize is so attractive and nice, which are $100 in Acclaim Coins, 2Moons T-Shirt and Mouse Pad! Wow, how nice if I'm the one getting this! hehe.. =P

This is really a good video, nice show and great creativity! I've met some of the character ingame before and this great videa comes to a success thanked to all his guildmembers in the game, who worked out together to get the video done.

If you've been playing one of any MMORPG game before, you'd know what the video says about. However, it has sad ending, with the beloved one died in the battle. Well, from what I heard, this guy plays this game together with his wife, and both of them come out with this idea of making a romantic video during Acclaim December contest. Great job! ^^

Tuesday, 1 April 2008


There're always some changes in our surroundings all the time, whether it's the good things or the unpleasant ones, sometimes we gotta accept and take it unconditionally. Different peoples have different reactions towards changes in their lives and therefore different outcomes ensue from the same changes. As we can see, for the same changes, some might react aggressively, some accept it quietly, while others with 'who cares?' manner will just ignore it.

I'm writing this because I notice that there're some changes taking place in my life here recently, especially on this very first day in April. Varying from significant degree to things that literally of no importance at all, these changes somehow affect me as well as the surrounding peoples. Few changes here include:

-- Transportation
My monthly expenses increase again due to increase in public transportation fees. Effective from this month onward, public bus fare increases from previously 6 rubs to 10 rubs..What a big difference!
Still remember when I first came to this place 5 years ago, the bus fare was only 3.5 rubs, and now it is almost triple! kinda burdening to use public bus now everyday but what to do..no other choices...
Anyway, it is still much more better than Moscow. In Moscow, public bus fare is 25 rubs per trip and for the metro-train it is 19 rubs per trip (cheapest transport). I think the price here will catch up sooner later if there's still no control over high inflation in this country.

-- Heavy Cycles
I've a very hectic timetable in April because of all heavy cycles dropped into this month. Well, yesterday was the first day of Therapy cycle, quite an interesting subject but it just takes too long time, which is almost double duration of normal class.
Good thing is that we're able to learn more things in this period of time, but each time after class, all of us are almost exhausted especially if there's another class or lecture follow by. After course of internal medicine, next cycle will be Obstetric and Gynaecology subject..another stressful and busy week to go..

-- Weather
Finally Spring comes! After weeks of great fluctuation of temperature, it is now eventually become more acceptable. Temperature ranged from 6-12 C this week. Personally I like the most this kind of weather =) not too hot or too cold, just nice and cooling ^^
But...today I saw for the first time in this year a mosquito in my room! Argh... you just can't imagine how terrible is the mosquitoes here! They are not only big in size but also in number and summer is their most active period that they can just make you an insomniac for the whole night!

-- Class Atmosphere
My group now is [11-1], of whom this 1 is still in Malaysia now. He is the one who smiles the most in the class no matter how boring the class is. He likes to joke around, creating a pleasant and wonderful atmosphere in our group.
Today we've Russian language class, the atmosphere was changed so significantly without his presence. All of us were so tired after therapy class and the atmosphere was so dull and weird. And for the first time ever, we'd such a boring and the longest russian class in this semester. You might not know how 'powerful' is his smile, that would otherwise not only makes teacher happy and euphoric, but also able to greatly shorten the duration of normal class!
We really miss this guy a lot especially his charming smiles that can bring so much 'advantages' to us (well, if you know what I mean hehe =P)
We're all waiting for you to come back to get started with a series of our planned activities. Group is not complete without you! Ya, I know you're reading this ^^
Hope to see you soon!

-- New Game experience
With my sharing about the games in previous post, I believe that you have already well-acknowledged of what are the changes in this game, which I've been playing since last year. 2Moons is a great MMORPG game that has recently undergone a big update called BMR patch (Bad Moon Rising). Ya, one of the visitors just leave a request for link to download the client. So, here it is.
Ya, answer especially to tiborsho - Yes, it's free to play! No month payment or hidden charge, unless you wanna spend on item mall for some extra equipments but it is your choice =)
One reminder: Make sure that you've signed up for the game before you can actually play it. Another restriction of this game is it has no longer allow new IP access from different countries since December last year, except for United States. To check it out more, it's good to visit 2Moons forum here.

And other minor changes here include my lifestyle, sleeping hours, etc...
How about you? ^^ I believe all of us experience changes every moment in our life. Well, no matter what the changes are, how big or small, I think we should take it as a challenge and face it optimistically.
Some changes might seem to be very unfavorable to you initially, but they might also turn out 360 degree anytime to give you an unexpected surprise, who knows right? =)
