What a wonderful book

A Lot Of Nonsense, My Favourites, Pharmacy Relatedon January 27th, 20084 Comments

Koda Kimble’s Applied Therapeutics is absolutely useful I tell you ……



It’s useful when you need specific information at your hand ….

Good whenever you need to look up that elusive piece of info at the tip of your tongue that you find difficult to spit out …….. *PTUI*

Imperative whenever any other book fails you…..

Also useful when you have nothing else to do with your life and want to just read up on things you know you’ll forget 1 month later ……

But most of all …… it’s especially useful ……



…..when you need it to prop up your rickety bed …….

Good Phone Man

Awhile back my friend went along on a raid of a place here in KT. Many things were confiscated, medicines, sex toys, and among others, handphones. We were pretty surprised to find that there was a pretty good phone in the haul ….


Pretty impressive N73 we had to admit ……


Check out the sleek design man …….


Camera no less ……..


Presence of a second camera … so it’s bound to be 3G ..


 Darn ….. you’ve just got to have it ….



Yup ……. Gotta have your NOKLA ~!

I imagine the company’s logo would look something like this ……


Fleh what?

Disputable Language, It Can Only Be KT, Pharmacy Relatedon January 16th, 2008No Comments

Oh Oh Oh …..

I really must tell you all this. Quite awhile back, my housemate who was working in the out patient department came across this patient.

She was all airy and haughty and tried her best to come across as being sophisticated and all. According to him, apart from trying to look the part, she also tried to sound the part by using bombastic English words with a foreign accent to boot.

Other than a cough, she was collecting medicine for various other ailments. And to add to the overall snooty demure of hers, she went on to explain for herself what each medication was indicated for.

When it came to the cough medicine she said this …

“And this … this one is for the fleh-germ right?”

……. She was talking about Bromhexine for getting rid of phlegm …..

Haiyoorrr ….. Kanasai lar I tell you …..

Farmasi Ghairah

Flipping through the TV channels nowadays has me thinking …. they have a tv drama for just about every kanasai thing in the world today …..

  • There’s Grey’s Anatomy – surgeons who sleep around so much, I wonder why they bother wearing clothes at all
  • The Practise – lawyers and more lawyers
  • CSI : Miami, CSI : Special Unit (or something liddat), CSI this, CSI that – all about forensics experts who always end up catching the baddies
  • Prison Break – breaking out of prison was never so glamorous
  • Who wants to be this, who wants to be that, cripes I even actually sat down to an episode of ‘Who wants to be a superhero’…. no, I wasn’t mixing my medications.

Then there’s House, Nip/Tuck, and loads of other medical related dramas…

Which brings me to my point. Why hasn’t anyone made a drama about pharmacists yet ?

We could give it a local touch and make it in BM. And we could call it …..

“Keghairahan Pegawai-pegawai Farmasi Sektor Kerajaan”

Sex is a taboo in this country ….. so no sex. We could film the normal daily lives of pharmacists who come to work everyday, mingle ‘secara sihat’ with their ‘rakan sekerja’ then pack up their bags and go home to their families….

Politics and other negative things are a big no as well. So no such thing as backstabbing and ‘penindasan’ to get that promotion in the hospital because it will ‘mencemari profession farmasi Malaysia di mata dunia’. We are ‘masyarakat penyayang’ so we love each other, we love our patients, we love our patients’ grandparents and also the warts on their asses.

We have like …. the 5 S thingy being implemented now …. (or is it 5 C ?) Nonetheless, that could make for an interesting episode. Why not have a pharmacist explain each and every R…. I mean S, stretch it as long as 10 minutes per S, then when it’s all explained, pretend that we remember what the 5 P ….. I mean 5 S mean and pretend that we practise it every day. Entertainment for the whole family.

Oh … the tea breaks. How about an episode called … ‘Pegawai yang enggan pergi minum’

…… where he was shunned by his fellow colleagues for being plain weird ….

And we all know just how interesting our jobs get at times. Take the store for example, man it doesn’t get more interesting than that. I mean, which part of inventory checking, store management, stock balancing and record keeping doesn’t sound interesting to you?

…. yup we all love it ….. like we love having a hole in our heads ….

The audience will love it too….. they’ll love it when the episode ends …..

…… No doubt the show will not last beyond the pilot episode …….

I say this again and again ….. Kanasai~!

My first post in my first blog.

I’m a pharmacist. I’m currently working in Terengganu. Working here against my own will because the kind people in the government have made it impossible to do anything else. Serve them well during your pupillage and they’ll reward you by sending you out to some klinik kesihatan near India where there’s no electricity. Leave the government and they’ll reward you with a hefty RM50000 fine and a nice stripping of your registration as a pharmacist. So there. We’re basically screwed left right center.

I was more fortunate than some of my peers. I’m in the enforcement now. Yes, I enforce the law. About 3 times in a month. At other times, I’m enforcing my reading skills by reading the newspapers in the office. I’m also enforcing my net surfing prowess and downloading skills. For all this I’m truly thankful.

A few of my mates got places I haven’t even heard of. Muazam Shah. I thought that was in Brunei. Kanasai. Another friend of mine from KL got the enforcement in Kelantan. It’s near the airport. He hangs out there everyday during work. Enforcing his patience and the ability to prevent sleep in the most boring of circumstances.The government acts in mysterious ways. It brings people closer together …. Even if it means being closer together 500km away from home. My housemates currently consist of people who live really near to me ….. in KL. I kid you not. I’m from Bukit Indah. The other dude’s from Happy Garden. A 3rd one’s from OUG. We’re like neighbours who only found out we’re neighbours during an European trip.

Those who were from Terengganu were allowed to transfer out. Those who WEREN’T from Terengganu were made to stay in Terengganu. Worst still, those who were already working in KL and are from KL were MADE to COME to Terengganu. So in the end we have loads of bitter pharmacists who are hundreds of kilometeres away from home, giving pharmaceutical care to total strangers and yet not knowing what’s happening with their family’s health back home. Kanasai I tell you.

Here’s what I think those people in charge of postings are up to.

“Oh what do we have today. A dude from KL who’s in Terengganu who wants to get back to KL. Oh there’s a guy from Terengganu who wants to transfer out. Oh heck, we’ll tend to him first. Let him transfer out from his home town. And the guy from KL, we’ll let him STAY OUT from his home town, in Terengganu. Hey, there’re others in KL who’re happy where they are. Let’s add in some spice and transfer THEM all out to Terengganu. How bout the others in Terengganu? Why not send them to KL to take the place of those from KL whom we’ll be sending to Terengganu? Oh this is all getting me a headache, let’s go for lunch”

Kanasai betul ~!
