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.

moments

What have you done so far this holiday? 

I've done a lot really. I know, I didn't go to a foreign country for a vacation since I didn't make plans earlier but I did some other cool stuff along the way & I also have some things that I look forward to..

PMS - Perhimpunan Musim Sejuk 2012

Yeah, I've been to this event for 4 years in a row and I have a different role every single year. This time, I am one of the AJK Pengisian. You know what? I've been wishing to have this position since last year (maybe because I saw the people in the 2012 team and realized "Hey, you're missing one more person - ME" since 2 of them are my best friends & by having me, it would be complete). But I also want this role because you can control (when I use the word "control" it does sounds like I'm crazy for power :P ) what the event is designed for. And I just love having a role in making those kinds of decision, heh.

It's very different to my role last year. As someone who controls (muahahaha) the event design, you have to think a lot. And Allah bombarded us with problems during the event; one after another which include the Malaysian speaker missed his 12-hour-flight from Malaysia, one local speaker withdrew from coming to the event but he did send someone else which caused another problem - he talked about something that we didn't originally planned! I just love these unexpected predicaments..probably because I have 4 other people to depend on when we need to solve these problems :D

And yes, this year is the last PMS for most of my friends from my year (who came to the UK in 2009) since most of them are doing a 4-year-degree programme. So it would be quite weird when they're not around next year. But yeah, I'm prepared mentally. It was also interesting that the director of PMS 2012 is the very person who only attended once (maybe). It was the irony of the season.

Plus, thanks to Team Media for including me in your video!! Nabil Ali rarely includes me in his productions :P Even if he did, the video will not be uploaded and if the video contains some shots of me, my face is probably covered in a blanket or hidden by the sunset. Haha. Ok kidding Nabil, jangan marah.

My 4th Year plans

You know, me moving into this new house is all part of my master plans. Plans which I didn't reveal entirely to any of my friends or family but some people do know some of them. As I said, plans NOT plan. So, some of you may know some of them. And some of you would not know at all, muahahaha. And everything is set in motion & they need to be perfect. So that's all I can say about my secret plans on my blog. Kah3. 

Don't worry readers, some of the plans have actually been written on this blog if you're smart and attentive ;)

Week of Moments

I just blurted this phrase to Lut yesterday when I told him that a lot of things will happen this week. The week that defines my future. If I make it through, I will book my plane ticket to Malaysia on that very day. I know it's not going to affect my holiday in May but it's going to affect me as an overachiever definitely (aku poyo, I know). Well, you know how it went when I didn't get Psychiatry for my 3rd Year project - 1 year of posts are just me talking about this O_o

So yeah, it will be quite a meaningful week to me depending on how everything goes.

I'm also going to talk to the people I care on Skype tonight (^^,)

And I would like to end this post with this photo :D



Allah is the best planner. Remember this. Welcome 2013...

meet me halfway

Adlan Wafi Ramli
Bachelor of Medical Sciences
(photo taken by Nazmi)

You see, one of the reasons why I chose Nottingham as my university is because of its double degree feature. Although of course the Bachelor of Medical Sciences is not the aim, I can get extra points for my application if I were to work in the UK after graduating with BMBS in 2014 which is definitely awesome.


Me & Hosni

So yeah, I initially didn't feel like graduating because it's not really the end of the medical programme, but after attending Kamal's graduation in summer this year, I changed my mind. I decided to graduate because I want to hear my name being pronounced by a native English speaker, hahaha. Thankfully, my name was correctly mentioned. And one of my favourite lecturers was present as well, Dr Todd (Immunology). I should have waved enthusiastically at him :P

Me & Syakir

Who knew that graduation can be so tiring? I was exhausted by the end of the day. My Mum came to see me the week before. I could have asked her to stay a little while longer but I didn't want to burden her. Her presence definitely made me forget about the horrifying exams I had in November and plus, I got to eat all the delicious & wonderful dishes of hers. And it was so sweet of her to come to England just to see me ^_^

And here are some of my mum's dishes:



And here are some of the photos from graduation:




And to my friends (Raja Abdullah Hakim aka King, Alif, Capek and Abang Shah) who came all the way from Manchester for our graduation, thank you. It means a lot, really especially since King kept mentioning about my graduation ever since I told him when we were freshers (Muhammad Hanif Noor Izan was also one of the people who kept saying that he wanted to come but he got married this year so he's excluded :P). To everyone who has given your wishes on FB, Twitter, Whatsapp, text messages or even direct conversations, thank you.

Flowers from my housemates :)

During Graduation, I kept seeing my colleagues holding bouquets of flowers and I'm usually not bothered by flowers. But for some reason yesterday, I was like, "I want one" lol. When I left the graduation hall, Haq handed me a bouquet of flowers which definitely made my day. You should've seen my face. I was pretty excited, hehe.

Yeap, if you've read my tweet, I'm glad that I attended the graduation yesterday. I'm feeling more motivated now (though not thoroughly confident with my recent exams) and looking forward to the future ;)

So, I guess you can call me a post-grad student now, can't you? Hahaha...
