Blue screen of death

In the past few days, I have seen lots of blue screen of death in my laptop. Most of the time, the message will be different and I am more than confident that the problem is in the hardware. It is less likely to be from the heatsink eg the cooling system since I have fixed those last time.

I might persevere with this problem until at the end of this year and buy another laptop when I am back in Malaysia. Hopefully this problem won't disturb me from blogging and studying smile

recovery and Paediatrics

Alhamdulillah, I have almost recovered from my bronchitis. However, my laptop is going downhill. There has been several occasions in which my laptop suddenly shutting down. The problem is likely to be hardware and I think I might get a new laptop at the end of this year.

This is my second week in Paediatric. The first week was full with lectures although, I think there are more lectures in first week of Women's Health than Paediatric. This week....I had nothing except PBL. This is extremely different from the previous rotation. Previously, I had tutorial every day and had to come to the hospital every day and came to home late, usually around 7pm. It seems that this rotation is slightly better than and not as busy as the previous rotation.

I hope that I can enjoy this rotation and pass this semester biggrin

After 5 years, my laptop started to show sign of old age. It continuously shuts down randomly. This has been happening in the last few weeks. Despite many times of reformatting the laptop, the problem persisted and I think the main culprit of this problem is the hardware. That is, there's something wrong with the laptop itself rather than Microsoft Windows.

It might be the time for me to get a new one. I have to think about this carefully. After all, this is a long term investment.

It is sad to be separated from something that you have been using for many years. This is the nature of life. Everything in this world has a limit on how long they can last for. Even human beings cannot last forever.

On another matter, since celebrating Eid on Wednesday, I have been sick. Sore throat, runny nose, fever and headache. The diagnosis is bronchitis and the temperature was around 38.2 yesterday. The fever was so severe that I had to rest at home and skip my PBL yesterday. I experienced chills and it was worst yesterday.

I saw the doctor yesterday and after taking the medication, I felt a little bit better today, so much so that I decided to attend Aliya's open house today. However, I started to get sore throat during the event and I had to reduce the amount of talking to my friends. It is a bit painful to talk when you are having sore throat and a little bit of headache at the same time.

Despite all of that, I pretty much enjoy the time of being there since it is not easy to meet all of my friends and catching up on what's been happening in the last few months smile. Thanks to Aliya for organising the event. I forgot to thank her due my headache that suddenly decided to come back again.

I believe that I will recover within the next few days. Till then, I will be resting a lot and may not be blogging until I have fully recovered.

Eid Mubarak

This year it will be the fifth time for me to celebrate Eid ul-Fitr at Melbourne. It is really different to celebrate Eid when there are exams or lectures on that day. I guess that's what made celebrating Eid overseas a bit unique.

Anyway, Ramadhan has already ended and I hope I would be still alive to see another Ramadhan next year. Let us celebrate Eid and do not forget the poor people around us. Hopefully we have become a better person after one month of fasting in Ramadhan. Hopefully all of us will be strong enough to fight against our own desire for the next 11 months until the next Ramadhan.

Eid Mubarak.
