New Chapter

Phew! As I'm typing I am sitting here in a cube reachable only by 5 LONGGGGG flights of stairs, located in the heart of Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Cheras. Yes, my friends, this isthe official (promised!) first post from my life as a third year medical student of PPUKM (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia's Medical Centre). And to give you a feel for the new digs..

So as you can see, small but cozy, though mosquitoes are known to plague the unfortunate tenant, and hence the presence of a very handy mosquito repellent (though with a questionable amount of repellent liquid left) handed down by the previous victim of said attacks. Other than that and some very shoddy workmanship with regards to the bed, it's..... well, small and cozy.

That being said, it's now time to rant about the connection here. Seems like the wifi provided courtesy of JARING is user-based, which means you need to register, which means you need to give them what the bomohs would call 'pengeras' AKA money (perhaps the spirits need solidifying?), and which finally means, as Phua Chu Kang would say: 'No money no talk!'

And so as the reps placate us with promises that they are doing something for us (' Kitorang dah beritau kat Bangi, tapi mungkin proses ini lama sikit, mungkin Jun boleh siap kot' - Translated: The main campus is imformed, but don't expect anything till June, so buzz off!), we are left with the trusty LAN cable (also the legacy of my kind predecessor... whoever he was) to supply my online needs. Well, they block off everything including Youtube and leave Facebook and Blogger, so what do you know... Guess that's the lot of the KTDI in-hostel student. Oh well, at least I can get to go online in between enduring orientation and sleeping, since I discovered this blasted cable thingy actually works. Now for my next project...

Darn, did I just remember that I will be spirited away to Besut on Monday? :( Oh well. Another week of Internet silence it is then. Sigh.
