Thursday Class

Monday, November 30, 2009 at 8:34 PM
It was suppose to be one post but I thought it'd be too long. So for now here's some pictures of a hospital where our general surgery classes are being held.

Больница No.23 имени "Медсантуд"


Photobucket

This is the only picture in the hospital. Was afraid of getting prosecuted by the doctors. Despite that, i managed at least this. It's shaky cause there were guards on my left and I was nervous lol.


Photobucket

Bumped into Ong heng after class. He never seemed more excited to do biochem after general surgery.



Next post : Chinese lunch buffet a walk away from this hospital !

Everybody loves Harjun

Saturday, November 28, 2009 at 12:21 AM
After doing the extra pump on pharmaco trying to get back with others on Thursday, Harjun decided to follow me back to the apartment. Here's some pic of the famous Shahrukh Khan of Moscow.

I think people who are anti-racism shouldn't buy nikon because..

Photobucket

Subject is too dark ???? I thought it sounded a lil racist here.. haha


Btw, my buddy Harjun might not have the stature of Shahrukh Khan yet but he is already a fine actor.

The following is a short clip he was casted as the main actor.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 26, 2009 at 6:38 PM
Just wanting to name the title as it is because so happen today is Thanksgiving Day. Not being an ardent follower of this celebration or anything.

So, Thanksgiving Day is a harvest festival celebrated mostly in Canada and the United States. Traditionally, it is to thank God for the harvest and to express some gratitude for the good blessings. But wait, only traditionally?

I think I should ponder on this because think I haven't been very grateful for the good things i have and only resent the things I don't. For instance, a zuiko ED 50mm 2.0, 12-60mm swd, 7-14mm 4.0, a new flashgun, tripod and it goes on. drooling..

By the way, here's some overdue pics.

Some weight off my shoulder

Wednesday, November 18, 2009 at 11:41 PM
Finally cleared a debt I owe for some time. It was a good relief I must say. For all those who made it too today, congrats.

Been snowing a little these couple of days. Winter always gives a rather solemn mood here in Moscow.

Here are some pictures I took with the camera that's always with me, a Pentax Optio M50. In other words, a compact camera. Sometimes it's just a little inconvenient to be lugging a bunch of books plus a dslr. So having a compact really saves u the space plus not missing any interesting shots.

As Chase Jarvis put it, The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You. But if i were to put it myself, it would be The Best Camera Is The One That's ALWAYS With You.

Cheers to the good invention of compact cameras !

Ikea trip

Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 11:56 PM
On Saturday, Remy and I decided to give Ikea a visit. It's been a while since we've been there.. and Remy needed some new furniture for his new room. So off we went.

Photobucket

On the way to the metro, i managed to make a shot of this.

It sucks to work on Saturdays.. I just had replacement class in the morning due to classes that I missed for some good reason. Had to wake up at 8 something on a Saturday! I mean who works on Saturdays? Besides the professor that came for my replacement class, my dad, my uncles and almost everyone else..


Photobucket


Photobucket

So we took our usual mode of transport to a destination to reach the destination.


Photobucket

After the metro, we had to take a 'marshoot' (a sort of taxi-van) to Ikea.
There was a line when we reached, so we queued.


Photobucket

Remy was hungry, so he bought a cheburek to fill up. Cheburek is a Georgian dish (I think), which is basically deep fried dough that's stuffed with mutton or beef with mash potatoes, cheese or mushrooms.


Photobucket


Photobucket

After buying my stuffs, Qing and I had to wait for Remy to be done with his shopping. Qing was feeling tired and bored after awhile so she became restless lol. Shopping in Ikea always is a big ordeal.


Photobucket

We had a meal in this nice lookin canteen-like Ikea cafe or sumthin. Most Malaysian students would have been here b4 countless of times. Could have taken a better shot of the canteen but I was tooo hungry.


Photobucket

So I ate. The cute lookin ziraffe is Dou dou's (my pet dog) new toy !


Photobucket

We all love eating. It brings back the good creation call - 'smile'


Photobucket

By the way, Remy's my new room mate. Cheers roomie !




Ps : My oly e-520 was out of batt, so I took his nikon D60 to take this. *The banana was not my idea.

Duck Stroll

Was taking a stroll at the park after class last week. It's post autumn so the pond is becoming icy.


Photobucket

While making this shot, the duckies were actually walking towards me! Quack Quack !

Midnight sushi

Monday, November 9, 2009 at 3:55 PM
Rumours from some seniors says a sushi place at Arbat offers good discount at a specific day and
time.
So we looked up the world wide web and found their website. There's an English version to it but its not very updated concerning this offer. Good news is I've been there 2wice so this is how it goes.

Buy 1 free 1 on :
Fri & Sat 2300-0200
Other days 1500-1800

It's situated at the start of Old Arbat Street. The signboards are yellow and its called Eurasia. It's opposite of Aзия Кафе and Кофе Хауз. U can't miss it.

Photobucket

Rather small but nicely lit.


Photobucket

We were seated shortly after arriving.


Photobucket

Everyone practically ordered this cause obviously it's worth the rubles you're paying for.
It's their biggest serving.


Photobucket

While waiting for supper to be ready, we chatted, laughed and fooled around as usual.

No he's not drunk yet.


Photobucket

And so our meal arrived. It didn't take long.. which is a plus point. Got to understand that in Russia, waiters are often rude and service are slow.


Photobucket

More food is definitely aaawesome.


Photobucket

One down !



Photobucket

Taking advantage of the deal, we ordered more of course. Followed buy another round of cheesecakes.



Photobucket

Clover and BlurVodka came 30mins later and joined us.



Photobucket

We ate til 2.00am ++ that night.. all of us were bloated, thus satisfied.
Frankly, it wasn't the best sushi I've tasted.. but the companies that could make it there + the Buy 1 free 1 offer was simply awesome.

Definitely would go again after a stressful of never ending tests.
Moscowkien rates it at 8/10.
Go try it !

Awesome camera ad.

All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up - Pablo Picasso.


We were all good artists.

The road less taken.

Picture taken on the way to Vasilenko Hospital for our classes. Not many walk this path.
Wonder where would I be now if I took the road less taken in reality.

How about you.. ever thought about it?
