When we swapped, 4 of us sat down round the table and looked at several radiographs of the same child patient who is going to have Orthodontics treatment.
There were a few types of dental radiographs..
Those of you who had orthodontic treatment surely had this one taken. I kno i did.
Anyway, we all were quiet analyzing the radiographs, basically what the diagnosis is and the treatment plan.
I looked at the Chepalometric radiograph and noticed the soft tissues, that is the Outline of the nose, lips & chin of the patient's face. And then i broke the ice.
"Looking at the child's face .. her thick lips and nose.. i think she is Black."
It was meant to be a Totally neutral comment, said matter-of-factly. Just an opinion anyway.
There was a 3-second silence, and then my other groupmates roared with laughter!!!
Another groupmate looked at the patient's name and sort of agreed she Might be black. The rest laughed louder.
The tutor came and we discussed the condition of the child and the ortho treatment that would be carried out. Then she took the radiographs back to her dental chair, where the patient WAS LYING down like 4 Meters away!!!
And yes, i was right, she IS black!!
Once the whole group met up for a final discussion, my groupmates started telling the rest how funny i was.
"There we were, analyzing the radiographs.. then the 1st thing this girl here said was 'Look at the lips and nose, i think she is black..' I mean like, she didnt say about the what type of occlusion, class I II or III or what teeth she had or what needs extractions or what other pathologies or etc (Basically, intellectual stuff) .. but just said.. She is black.."
The rest of the group laughed, and mr. botak E said 'Racist!' which is clearly not true.
Funny how i said it with no intentions of racism, sarcasm or humour yet everyone interpretes it differently. Maybe it's just the way us Malaysians say things that locals find funny.
In the end, no1 credited me for guessing the patient's race just based on the outline of her nose and lips!

basically its my dearie fren, Ayu lady's bf that would be leaving back to msia soon (back then, he left yesterday) and Last Friday we had a farewell at Satay House, a Malaysian restaurant (yes! the yummilicious ABC that T belanjaed me & officiated the end of my yo-yo diet on 2 Feb and caused me to gain 3kgs to date)
i've been through distants myself, it isnt fun and all.. but it can still have a happy ending.. :)

But the very next day, you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to noone special~
Well, the original is Last Christmas, but it works now with a tiny modification..
Yes, i received a dozen Red Roses.. and a humongous Valentine card.. and a few little valentine pressies & wishes .. and i really really reallyyyyy appreciated them all... Thanx again..
Being stuck in state of confusion.. Valentine's Night was.. an uncertainty.. should I go out on a new date? Or someone i used to be with? Or just do what single ppl do: n.o.t.h.i.n.g.
What's Valentine's.. if you don't spend it with ppl u care?
Eric made a fantastic solution.. you see, eric rama eliza zul and i are cooking together now.. the policy is we take turns meaning 1 person cook + wash in 1 of the 5 weekdays and it rotates.. Best also, cook 1 time, Eat another 4 times.. weekends are off days..
Anyway, back to eric, it was His turn to cook for Vtine's nite.. so he decided to take us all out for a treat .. yes.. all 5 of us.. Its like a singles-group (except a scammer named zul who is wearing the red T-shirt his gf sent to him ) Valentine's Night out..

Performance Art - Trafalgar Square Freeze
Tagline:Sometimes standing still can be fun...
Time and PlaceDate:
Saturday, February 16, 2008
Time:3:30pm - 3:35pm
City/Town:London, United Kingdom
Description: Performance Art Trafalgar Square Freeze
Extract from LeCool Mag:
Welcome to the 'Great Trafalgar Freeze'.
We are hoping to attract 1000 like-minded people to take part in a Improv Global mission to freeze Trafalgar Sq. for five minutes.
This mission has been inspired by http://www.improveverywhere.com , a group that successfully froze Grand Central Station for five minutes.
The effect of 200 people caught still, like a snap-shot confuses and surprises the general public. Once the five minutes have passed the members continue on with their acions as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened. The scene will be filmed by a number of crews.
Would you like to see the effect? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DerK9VJKIpY&NR=1
IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING THE FREEZE
The numbers have grown considerably from the original handful this is excellent but it means there have been a few alterations in the plans.
1. The meeting at CHARING CROSS IS CANCELLED. This is for obvious reasons.
2. Head to Trafalgar Sq as early as you can.
3. Do synchronise your watch, mobile or alarm clock to the talking clock (dial 123) and set it exactly.
4. Find a position in Trafalgar Sq, allow there to be space for pedestrians to walk through. The filming will be taking place all over Trafalgar Square but spread out from the centre between the steps to Nelson’s column, and around the two fountains. If there are huge numbers of people spread up the stairs around the front entrance to the National Gallery.
5. The Freeze will begin exactly to the second at 3.30pm. It will finish at 3.35pm.
6. There will be an audible signal for the start and the end.
There will also be a number of people with umbrellas in the corners of Trafalgar Square and around the fountains. At 3.30pm the umbrellas will simultaneously go up. At 3.35 the umbrellas will simultaneously go down.
Art Direction –
It is important that you are caught frozen in time.
You can bring props – a half eaten hamburger, bottle of champagne, a smoking cigarette, a bicycle, skateboard, a mankini...etc.
Try to be caught in a motion pose – mid-walk, mid laughter, mid stretch or whatever you fancy. This will really help the public realize that everyone is frozen.
And when the Freeze is over please continue on as if NOTHING out of the ordinary has happened.
IF IT RAINS THE FREEZE IS STILL ON. It will look amazing even with 50 people being soaked in the rain. …O and Enjoy….

I had a date in the morning. Yes, in the morning. And i was late for my Valentine's date. Left my room 10 mins b4 the meeting at Mile End.
I was of course, anxious. This meeting would decide if there would be further dates in the future, or none at all. Late + anxiety + uncertainty of the future. And i was huffing & puffing, in a mess.
I sat there. Quiet. And he broke the ice with a bright smile. Not bad looking..
We talked abit.
Then i said i need to know the answer.. Pretty worried too..
if its green, would not be Good news coz it shouldnt happen at the 1st place.. it's wrong, bad, evil!! but at least u have something to work for, to strive towards.. a goal perhaps..
if it red .. maybe u wud feel fortunate.. but then u are left in a daze.. a confusion once again.. why did it happen at the 1st place?
Then he said the 3 words..
And filled me up with Mixed feelings..
It is negative..
What? He doesnt Love Me? What are you talking about???
It is the result of my Urea breathe Test.. and i tested negative..
I do not have Helicobacter pylori.. nope, no bacteria inhibiting my gastrointestinal tract..
Honestly i was like 95% sure i do have that coz it would explain everything.. But shouldnt I be happy that i am bacteria-free? But THEN.. why the endless gastritis and sharp stomach pains???
The young white doctor smiled at me again. I was.. clueless..
"Er.. where do i go from here?"
"Continue your medication for 1-2months and we'll see from there."
With that, my date ended.. lasting only 3 minutes. Shortest Valentine's Date Ever!!!
I left the Health Center confused.. oh well, shouldnt i be happy i am not as chronic as i thought? I decided that since i can choose to be happy or disappointed, i rather be happy.
With a happy tune in my head, i started the day with a smile, and managed to bring Valentine spirit to others around me.. but that would be another blog post...
There were around 40 ppl.. 6 tables with 3 tables of set A (tak halal.. chic beef babi etc.. 3 pounds only) and set B (seafood.. 6 pounds..) I was advised to take set B..
pic1: kiss me..
pic2: Come Join Us.. Come..
pic3: It is really best being gay.. even bttr if threesome..
pic1: same smirk
pic2: more bored look.. not so smiling
pic2: smile with teeth
whats the probability they smile the same way in 3 different pics without discussing it??? Jeez, they creep me out!!!
After the dinner we went for dessert.. Ice Cream at Ciao's.. it was yummy yummy..
