as we all know, MJ recently passed away on friday. I only knew about it through the class blog cause someone posted
"the king of pop passed away"
I instantly goggled his name and the news was true.
It's strange how celebrities are all invincible in our eyes. When one dies, especially one as famous and as iconic as MJ, all of us are dumbstruck.
I'm no MJ fan. I've listened to a few of his songs and read about his antics on the newspaper.
I think the earliest music video of his i watched was for the song Black and White. And I must be only 5-8 years old? By the time i was old enough to remember things, MJ well... was notorious for his eccentric living (plastic surgeries, paedophilia allegations, hanging baby over a balcony).
Few days ago, I managed to catch the tribute 8tv did for him (airing his concert in "i forgot where") And watching him live I could understand why he had his fans. I didn't even know some of the songs I've listened before was actually sung by him. And his dance moves were awesome. Some fans in the concert were actually crying when they saw him come into stage (and many continued to do so throughout the concert). Many fainted (due to heat stroke or claustrophobia) and you can see the staff pulling them out from the 5000+ crowd of people (could be more, i dunno, it;s a sea of people basically). During his performence he actually asked a fan to come up. The girl was completely awestruck. He hugged her while singing and when it was time for her to leave the stage (the girl kept on wanting to hug him while he was trying to sing. lol) security people actually have to lift the girl up on their shoulders and carry her off stage. That was how adoring he was to his diehard fans.
It's sad actually that he had to pass away this way when he was still being potrayed negatively in the media. I think it would have been better if he completed his london concerts and at least proved to the world that he was still the same MJ in the past because his last live concert was ages ago.
And I think its so sad that his children will now most likely be involved in cutody battle.
Death by MI. so sad indeed.
Oh, Billie Jean is playing in my head for these past few days. arghhh
On a more realistic note, MY FREAKING EOS IS TODAY! And I have 2 more notes to go through. Stress!!!
Wish me luck people, and I shall cross my fingers that today's paper won't be too hard
another 20 more notes to go.
Sooky, Asian Elephant Cow at
and Living Museum
Elephant Keepers Jessica and
Sooky age 32 years
Asian elephants are en endangered species. The loss of their habitat is one of the major reasons this animal is endangered. Elephants are social animals. This elephant's name is Sooky. She lives at the zoo in Tulsa Oklahoma. The keepers there love her very much. They are very dedicated to her care and happiness. They know her very well and are truly attentive with her. She is obviously just as fond of the keepers. An elephant's versatile trunk can pick up food, touch and greet other elephants, and draw up water. The Asian elephant has 5 toes on the foreleg and 4 toes on each hind leg. Elephants are often seen spraying water and dirt on their back to keep cool and clean, this also helps to get rid of of insects. Asian Elephants are excellent swimmers. Elephants have few natural enemies except man, and they are in extreme danger of extinction due to loss of habitat and poaching. The elephant's ivory tusks are incisors used for digging, uprooting trees and displaying. Elephants use low frequency sound waves for communication between members of the herd and individuals outside the herd. These sounds may carry for distances of up to 10 miles. Only the male Asian elephant has tusks. These large greatly extended incisor teeth come out on each side of their upper jaw. Unlike the Asian elephants the male and female African elephant both have tusks.
ugh. countdown begins. heck, it begun a long time ago.
i feel perpetual doom looming.
in 5 days, I hope i've managed to stuff in all the information i need.
This cramming is killing me.
I just can't wait for it to finish. then... on to melbourne! YES
a) no car park available
b) i was just going to bank in money where it would take at most 5 mins
When i got out from the car, this indian guy quickly rushed over to promote his rust-whatever remover liquid thingy. He started his sales pitch with:
"Eh, ah moi. Ini rosak boleh hilang." (pointing to the banged up portion of my car)
"tak mau, tak mau" I was already rushing since i was double parking and i was nervous whether the indian man was using this tactic to approach my car then smash my windows when i'm out of sight to take my bag (yea... creative imagination indeed. I'm a little paranoid with strangers)
So I ran into the bank and did my business while keeping an eye on my car. I saw he left my car alone so whatever la
When I came out from the bank, he again rushed to me.
"EH! Ini rosak boleh hilang la."
(Seriously, I hate promoters like this. I have products at home which can get rid of the rust also la. But it'll just rust up again. so what's the point right? unless i use my liquid paper and cover it up. ahahahaha)
I said "tak apa" while waving my hand
When I got into my car i heard him say, "CEH. Ini cara kamu layan kereta kamu. tak tau jaga kereta langsung"
Pissing off indeed.
they even have a section on physical examinations, subdivided into systems (eg: respi).
I'm impressed. aahaahhaha
although not as complete as our student made csu guide, it serves as more of a checklist.
+ they also have million of other webpages on obscured diseases and such.
btw. so so dead now.
2 more weeks and i'm just starting respiratory system
i still have to go through my git and haem again.
then visit the medical museum.
then go through the PBLs
and finally practise OSCE.
ughhhh. i feel like running away to some far far away country now.
i hate hospital postings.
my studies are seriously lagging behind. haven't studied for the past 3 days. DARN IT ALL
