I'm beginning to lose faith in this so-called modern society.
In which some of the 'bizarre' ways of human-relationship have become an acceptable social norm.
Where people are judged better by the things they own or if they look in certain ways, or behave in certain 'manners'.
I have also become more skeptical on the institution of marriage. Although it is a Sunnah Nabi. But its values & qualities have deteriorated markedly in these last few years. The steep rise in divorce rate in Klang Valley is scary. Being married does not mean anything to everyone, anymore. There is nothing left out there that can protect its sanctity. Dishonesty in relationships are everywhere.
It brings me to one final conclusion.
People lie, hence as a general rule they cannot be trusted.
The only thing that matters in the end is not what was spoken, but the actions that follows.
At some point of your life, you would wish for a place where you do not leave any footsteps behind. Hoping to avoid that resonance of echoes that reminds you of the void inside, which you are going to carry with you once you leave your heart at the door.
I am looking for my Zihuatanejo.
Andy Dufresne: When you get out from this prison, I want you to go to a place called Zihuatanejo. You'll have to cross the Mexican border.
It is now no longer matter to me as I have seen and heard enough to know the truth.
I knew a painter named Picasso who told me he was once approached by an intelligent lady with a face of an angel whom wanted to buy one of his drawing which was a portrait of a man. The piece was not that expensive but it has certain sentimental value to him.
Then as she took out the money out of her purse, she said:
"Hmm the man in the painting is all right, but he isn't tall enough, the thighs are too small, he has rather a small face and definitely not as good looking as the men in other paintings I have in my collection."
"Gosh how did you reply?" I got curious.
"It was easy, I splashed black paint over the drawing and told the lady ~ don't worry about it, it is now no longer for sale"
It all began with the hunt for a place that I could call home. This is not something that we do everyday or on a regular basis. So this would be my latest obsession for the few weeks or so.
This will certainly changes things as I know it. The next 30 years of this life course will definitely take a whole new level of direction.
Shall I pack my bag and return back to live nearby my parents? Bought a house there and work for a teaching university hospital somewhere in the east coast. Have a family of my own there, grow a farm with a dozen of cows and goats.
Or shall I just stay put in Klang Valley, which means I might as well grab that condo and live happily overlooking the hills at sunset (presence of a female companion is optional).
A newly-wed young lady with dysuria. Jari di inai masih merah. All radiant but dehydrated with hypotensive, her urine looks dirty. Looks like another case of a honeymoon cystitis. Treatment: A good dose of antibiotics and... err take it easy ma'am and yes you too sir.
1am Private wing:
A VIP with an elective admission had a sudden surge in BP. There is nothing that a 'genuine' smile and an amlodipine 10mg od cannot fix.
4am Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever:
A 40 year old housewife, flushed out, abdominal distention, bibasal lungs crepitation fortunately no postural hypotension and good capillary refill. Gave her a 1 pint of dream over 1 hour and that bring the Haematocrit down nice and easy.
Modern medicine does not have the cure to all diseases under the sun. Where mainstream medicine fails or does not work, we will admit it.
I have great respect for complimentary or traditional method of healing. Acupuncture is one them.
My concern lies with traditional drugs which do not go thorough scientific research and stringent regulation in checking their safety for mass consumption. Some of the active ingredients have incredibly high dose it could cause renal failure. One of my nurse developed heart failure secondary from taking traditional weight loss pill.
In contrast, any mainstream drugs that is reported to have 'safety concern' will be recalled even after it has been released to the public.
Having said that a lot of modern drugs are extracted from plants, and they are wonderful! For example, an oral anti-diabetic drug called metformin is extracted from a plant called Galega officinalis.
PS: I got no hidden agenda nor that I have any shares or benefit from any sales of the so called modern drugs. My only interest is your health.
