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.

don't speak

You don't really think I'm going to leave my blog without being updated for one whole month. After all, I am now free ~

I have this friend which I was close to in the early semesters in KMB, but nowadays, I realized that we rarely talked. Plus, whenever we meet, we only make eye contact. Yes, eye contact! I had to be the one to do the talking - the one to greet the other for numerous times continuously until I got tired...which was today. It's funny though. IB has not even ended yet and we're not talking to each other already. Don't get me wrong; we're not arguing or having internal conflicts. It's just that...I don't know; as time passes by, we simply stopped having conversations. Peculiar, I know. To the person being featured on my blog - just a simple greeting like giving salam is enough. We don't need to have long hours of chit chat. Simple short ones will do. And to all my friends - I really hope that this would not happen to anyone of you. It would be sad; really.

Speaking of speaking, I just found out about this:

Terlajak perahu boleh berundur
Terlajak kata buruk padahnya

Well, it might be old hat to you; nevertheless, how many of us are aware of the fact that we can actually hurt others through words?

Imam Ghazali pernah bertanya:

Apakah yang paling tajam di dunia ini?

Lidah manusia

Words can do so much damage to our lives. At times, there is this strange tendency for us to just blurt out whatever we have in our minds. Once we realized that we've said something wrong, that's when we wished we never said anything. And the guilt, it will devour you and make you feel bad for hours, days, weeks, months or even years.

And even that, don't you think that people like to talk bad stuff about others? It's almost like a culture in certain community (check out gossip)

Well, speak only when we have to and control what we want to say. Don't babble everything in your mind (unless you have a blog of course). Essentially, think before you throw...words that is...

  1. sometimes it's just our perception

  2. ever heard of this?
    "orang yg paling kerap kita sakiti adalah orang yang paling kita rapat.."

    mungkin kerna itulah..
    lidah yang tajam..
    sbb dengan orang yg kita rapat..
    semua rasa cam OK je..
    "surely dia paham"..
    instead we end up hurting him/her..
    sayang anda semua..
    maaf andai tersakit.. terluka.. terguris..

  3. to shahkang,

    to Zarith Shafie,
    most of ur comments r so touching...;)

  4. you used to do that a lot back in school, you know? X)
    i realize i'm like that. sometimes i just consciously let go of tactfulness and blurt out whatever, but so far.. the ones yg kena they understand that i don't mean to hurt them and that half of the time i think after i speak.
    musn't let go of these gems, and must change.
    but the whole forgiveness give-and-take should be a two-way thing..
    and yeah we tend to hurt the ones we love the most.
    i'm sorry Adlan kalau i ada salah cakap since dulu sampai sekarang! X)
    hopefully you and your friend akan get better, together. :)

  5. really? maybe, kdg2 x sedar...

    yeah n forgive me if i've done anything wrong too...

    btw, about the friend in this post, it has nothing to do with the bottom part of this post. i included it just because it relates to the title...;)
