I just did a presentation in front of 2 professors, 2 associate professors, numerous senior lecturers, lecturers and fellow students.
Little did I realised that I had to do that in front of them. I thought only a couple of lecturers and a few students will be attending.
It was only a presentation on the summer vacation project that I am still doing. As it was a stress free aka no marks presentation, I didn't really prepare as well as I usually did.
And it was like a bad nightmare when I saw the bigwigs coming into the lecture theatre one after the other.
As I stand in front of the lecture theatre readying myself, I can really felt my legs shaking uncontrollably and had to rest my hand on the rostum to steadied myself.
I was thinking "Oh sh*t, I better leave out the corny lines like 'each medical record tells a story of its own - there are sad compelling stories of bright young people had their lives slowly eaten away by malicious bugs and cancerous cell - giving me a chilling realisation this can happen to me too' from the speech. Which professor will want to listen to that?
Luckily the speech turned out well and this will go down as one of the most memorable and unforgetable experience of my Uni life. And yeah, I did deliver that corny line.
It was quite a humbling experience to have them hear me talk, but in a way, it was quite a moment to be proud of.
How many students can say that they had given a talk where former dean of the college, the head of a uni department and lecturers are the audience?
Pharmacically, it had been an eye-opening 6 post uni weeks for me. As part of the Ambassador programme, I was assigned a mentor to guide me in the field of community pharmacy. He was a real nice guy, and last Tuesday, he got a few pharmacy owners and pharmacists together with three of us ambassadors for a cruise down the Yarra river in his boat. The cruise was amazing, and even more so the experience and ideas shared by the pharmacists. They are all so enthusiastic and clever about their job and so full of interesting ideas for the future. What I had learnt from them in one night is more than what can be offered from the lectures in Uni.
Okay, I was exaggerating.
I had also learnt a lot about research and hospital pharmacy during my vacation scholarship. Priceless. Suddenly, the decision to forfeit a holiday back home for all these seems quite a wise decision.
I will try to resume blogging constantly after this week as I will finish my research on Friday. At last I will be free..
Girls' blogs always have details about their shopping exploits.
So I am doing one for the guys.
Yesterday I went shopping with Wee Loon and his gal Violet at Direct Factory Outlet Southern Cross Station.
This is the aftermath of the trip for me:
In the space of 4 hours, I managed to purchase 8 items of clohtings, each a very reasonable bargain.
Ok. Now lets get to the details of the buys:
First off I got there 2 summer teeshirts from my favorite store Essential Men for AUD$25. Their summer range is alwaz very hip and trendy. I grabbed those two because they are V-necked, hence can give an illusion that my unfortunately vertically challenged neck is longer then it really is.
Then I got these two hooded jackets from Giordano for AUD$20 apiece. I think they are a steal because they originally retailed at AUD$75 each. Actually I only wanted one but can't make up my decision which one to choose. So I brought both. =)
I purchased these two because of their uniqueness and I felt wearing them will be a very daring choice (and because they are cheap $10 and $7.5 respectively). Don't know whether I will actually wear them or not. Maybe I can just donate them to the Salvos later on if I change my mind about them..
I got the jumper for $7.50 from JeansWest which I think is damn cheap. It retailed for $39 last winter. The white jeans is from Oxford, only $30. Quite surprising they have my size because usually the only available sizes for bargains are >36 inches. Gonna keep them for next year. Now the weather is too hot for them.
In the end, our 4 hour trip ended uo with Wee Loon and me spending a combined total of AUD250 on clothings alone. Thats like RM750 in 4 hours. I think it is equivalent to someone's salary. And we did spent a lot of time in the changing rooms too, trying various patterns and sizes, not just grabbing them and swipe card.
A fresh pharmacy graduate from the Victorian College of Pharmacy, Melbourne, who had so far gone back to Kuching to start the next phase of his life, whatever it is. He still find joy in reading, writing and cooking, but now wonders whether being a nice guy is a boon or a bane. Full of contradictions but nevertheless believe he will do the right thing in the end.
My Story Board is a series of short aesthetic essays I wrote in my free time to arrest the alarming decline in my English vocabulary.
I have my own personal interpretation of the story I wrote, but you can interpret it however you want. hopefully you can derive some meaning from it.
