Visa Guidelines is back

Alhamdulillah, I got married to a lovely lady by the name of Sarah and we're enjoying our new phase in life since that momentous day.

And yeah, I graduated from the University of Nottingham and thus, escaping from the evil clutches of my medical school. woot2! probably needs a post on this as well but yeah, maybe later.

at the bottom of this blog, there is an article on visa guidelines for medical students graduated from UK medical schools under MARA scholarship who are planning to work as an FY1 doctor in the UK.

After all, it was my visa guidelines which i made 5 years ago that helped me to get to know a lot of people and for some, have now become my close friends. And it helped a lot of other people as well. So I hope that this guideline would ease your efforts a bit. Visa application is always confusing.

warna-warni aidilfitri


(I set two records by publishing this blog post. This is my first Malay post and the first post to be published on a day other than Saturday)

Semoga Ramadhan yang lalu memberikan kita pengajaran bermanfaat agar dapat menjadi insan yang lebih baik.

Marilah kita sambut bulan Syawal yang telah tiba dengan semangat dan azam membara untuk meneruskan perjuangan di dunia yang sementara ini.

Terimalah pantun bagi tahun 2008:

Tatkala pagi dilaungkan gema,
Disinari cahaya petunjuk Illahi;
Ampun dipohon maaf dipinta,
Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!

Kuharap agar warna-warni aidilfitri akan dapat membuka mata serta memberi teladan yang penuh makna. Di sebalik kebahagiaan yang kita rasai, pasti ada hikmah tersirat untuk dihayati...

wishin' and hopin'

Did you wish you could have done better?

Did you hope that you wouldn't take this holy month for granted?

"So lose not heart, nor fall into despair; for ye will gain mastery if ye are true in faith."
(Ali-Imran (3):139)

And so you disappointed yourself by not fully utilizing the time that you have in this illustrious month.

Guess what? Ramadhan's not over yet; so don't give up...

get up


If you have been reading my blog since the first post, then you should be able to know what I have faced so far throughout the 3rd Sem. Ever since the start of the semester, I have missed so many classes. If there was an award for the student who recorded the highest number of days absent from class BUT with reasons, I would surely be the winner. Before this, I felt that I was at a much lower level than any of my classmates. They seemed to excel in their studies and not to forget, they were able to complete their assignments on time.

But now, I find myself on the same level as everyone else - I'm back on track. I scored quite well in the previous Math test and I'm also proceeding well with my Econ IA and Malay World Lit essay. EE? Nope, that's excluded. In addition, I believe my IRP group has the potential to become one of the best judging from our performance in class and the team spirit among the members. Everything is going smooth.

I used to think that everyone is so much better than me. The thing is, I can have high level of optimism but most of the times I need to have assurance from others; like my friends for instance in order to have faith in myself.

Being humble is a fine trait but being TOO humble can lead to your own downfall. The more I think the others are superior, the more I find myself going nowhere. And with that, I would like to share with you one of my favourite quotes:

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
Eleanor Roosevelt

Don't stay too long at the bottom. It's time to get up...
