And this is analogous to what Alexander Fleming (discoverer of penicillin) once said - if the soil causes the disease; the cure to the disease also lies in it. For example, while Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) mediates rheumatoid arthritis, the soluble form of its receptor is used for its treatment. And similarly, while Helper T cell 1 (Th-1) secreted cytokines tht mediate inflammation, Th-2 produces cytokines that supress it. Vice versa, Th-2 secreted cytokines tht leads to allergy, Th-1 produced cytokines tht supress it.
Isn't this perfect arrangement just soo beautiful Subhanallah!Macam org bercinta, dialah racun dialah penawar!heheh!Setiap yg berlaku ada hikmah nya, tak gitu. Sesungguhnya bersama kesusahan ada kesenangan(Al-Insyirah).
Still on the same double-edged sword principle; acute inflammation is protective to our body but once it lasts too long or becomes chronic, it may lead to diseases like cancer for instance. So on tht note, don't u think that is why we're strongly advised to live in moderation? For example; at one end, salt is needed to maintain the electrolytes balance in our body but if we consume too much salty stuff, there comes hypertension etc. Likewise, gastric acid is needed to help maintains the environment in our stomach suitable for digestion and protective against bacterial infection but kalau kita x jaga like makan x tentu masa n all, tht same acid jugak cn cause gastritis, hakis our stomach lining causing ulceration and in long term may lead to cancer.
Cantik dah susunan Tuhan tu kan!(^_^)

n i dnt hav the answer either. so those who hav the manual pls do let me knw.
hurm..labwork 4 me is not tht bad..only if i dnt hav to do it all yr round la kn..coz kt lab, ppl jst do their own job..not talking to each othr pn..n wht more, im quite lampi when it comes to numbers. ..hence i neeeed that huge GDC of mine. owh yes the dilution calculation etc..my first time doing the 'real' situation calculation, i was like..blank. completely. i wonder wut ive been doing with my 7 IB chem n A1 spm chem.cikgu mintak maaf..^^
labwork=cooking kah?i dont think so..w'pun u hav the recipe for cooking n protocol manual for labwork, it's jst not the same kot. sbb when cooking, we cn campak2 stuff n jst make it edible. tp labwork, if we miss one thing or put the wrong solution, the cells die n project pn entah ke mana. so mayb baking suits better la.haha.

k jst dnt let anything 2 disturb my train of thoughts for a while..
leaving, walk away n disappear, are these wut legs r for? if u have never been left behind, jst dnt do tht to others. please i beg u. someone u sincerely treasure for years suddenly being invisible and so out of reach..they r around but u cnt reach them..u jst cnt. they jst dnt wnt u anymore.
n u wonder..
"have i said/done something wrong or hurtful?"
"am i tht despicable to be forgotten jst like this?"
"am i tht insignificant?"
wut even more confusing..u jst dnt knw how u're feeling..angry?upset?betrayed?jst which one already?
well people do change. but walking away by leaving others in agony, is tht even comprehensible n sensible?or mayb it's too selfish to ask others to befriend/stay with u..or mayb it's jst one's greed to keep the old memories intact. who knows.
but still, whoever wasting their time reading this, pls..never do that. coz whichever way i see it, my conscience still think tht it jst isn't a right thing to do. no matter how much u've fallen out of love with the person or hate them..jst dnt abandon. there must be a better way. n i personally think, it's ok or less hurtful to let the time decides rather thn we ourselves purposely walk on tht person. eh chop, but isn't tht wut ppl do to avoid someone they dnt like i.e slowly distancing themselves frm the othr end n jst let the time passes in the hope tht they never were to cross each other's path ever again?i dnt knw coz i've never done tht to anyone b4.insyaAllah la.
Allah lebih mengetahui.
one last piece of advise: treasure those who treasure u. do good to the person nxt to u..coz u never knw when they'll leave u. (haha.isnt tht a bit scary in some ways?) but if tht person really gonna leave u in an inappropriate way, will u regret being good to them then?i dnt think i wud. coz sincerity never change.
anggaplah cerita jiran sy ini stu pengajaran berguna. haha.
selamat menjalani ibadah puasa..change to the better, Ramadhan is the gateway.
btw chepal is korean..it means please (like an i-beg-u kind of please)hehehee..^^

hehe..that's Khmer language. the longest sentence ive learnt during my 2 weeks stay in Cambodia. sorry if the meaning lari sket or the spelling isnt right.
Throughout the relief mission, there wasn't any moment tht i regret my decision to join the team. the new things ive learnt, the people i got to know there..everything is precious n priceless! i'll write more on the mission once i receive the pics frm the boss. but wht i wanna share now is about this one cambodian fren we know. seeing him, i would never have imagined he's the person tht needs to go against his family will for his idea to change the lives of his village hence pursuing medicine in USS in Phnom Penh and now in his 5th yr.(or is it 6th?cudnt remember)..btw medical course in Cambodia is 8 yrs.
He came from a rural village in one of the provinces in Cambodia where the main source of living is fishing. For the people around him, helping their parents to earn a living was considered to be more "useful" than studying. Most of the kids settled only til elementary. So when no one in the village likes to study, when the school is 20 km away, when parents and grandparents oppose, and when living is hard, he, Ghazali (or Rosaly) Yakop determined. (or in Khmer, Kop Roly). Even when he had to cycle 20 km to high skool, and also helped his father go fishing in the weekend, he never waver from his idea of the importance of education. He was then awarded a scholarship by the gov and became the first from his village to further in university. Hesitantly, he chose to become a doctor over a teacher.
The scholarship however only covered the tuition fee. Poor kampung boy needed to survive on his own feet in Phnom Penh city with estimated expenses of approximately 150$ p/month for food, books, accomd etc. His parents could only support around $50/60 p/month. And the rest was on him. So he did part time jobs. One at a local restaurant and the other one was distributing newspapers. Uni during the day, and work from 5 til night. (can we possibly manage tht?) He also once worked with nurses in the hospital at night. he was so exhausted tht his lecturer once asked him why he often dozes off in class. (we also doze off in class but with a different reason kn?)
Once in a while, the thought of giving up came across his mind. But then he keeps reminding himself tht if he give it all up and go home now, he would still be the same guy who have nothing and the villagers would jst blame him for being stubborn n not following the common. And so he preserve res.
Then Alhamdulillah he got another scholarship from IDB (Islamic dev. bank) tht lessen a bit the burden off his shoulder. In 2nd yr, he got to know IMAC, Islamic Medical Assoc. Cambodia. They do mobile clinics in rural areas almost every week! (IMAC is another story..later ye). Even with the scholarships he got, getting original new medical books is still beyond his reach. He only uses photostated books. In uni library, they have a very limited number of reference books. They can only read the books there in the library. Using only black and white photocopied books, whenever he needs diagrams or figures to refer (remember in medicine we really need pictures?!), he would go to the library, look at it there and read about the details at home. (Yes, let's count how MANY untouched/used reference books we have on our shelf).
Now he still do part time job since he needs more books and stuffs as he progresses. The smart n brilliant Roly now works as a tutor at a private college teaching biology. So every night, he needs to prepare for his lesson as well as his study. Being the stubborn n the rebellious one in his family, he decided not to go against his family in this one matter: marriage. He accepts with an open heart his match-make arranged by his mother and now engaged.
He has no time to think tht medicine is hard, coz to be able to study n live itself are hard enough for him.
So now, are we in the position the complain n whine?? Ya Allah, place us among those who're grateful to You...ameen.

Nottingham's own trio set on a 35km cycling trip to Derby. They have voluntarily come up to the CRM team to help raise enough funds to buy medical supplies and other humanitarian needs of the poor in Cambodia.
As eager as they are to help the cause, we, the CRM team will do our best to visit house-to-house around Nottingham's student housing area to drop a sponsorship form, for each household's convenience. These sponsorship forms (hopefully,together with your contribution) will then be collected in roughly a week's time Insha Allah.
For households that wish to sponsor but the CRM team aren't able to reach due to various unfortunate reasons, please be happy to transfer the money to the account stated in the poster.
Sponsor them, and make their cause your cause too.

A japanese drama with Kimura Takuya yg kacak as the lead actor!!i highly recommend u this drama!ala2 CSI but focusing more on neuroscience aspect of solving criminal cases. it's funny, informative n cute!! =) brain..brain..brain..i lyke!!
here's the synopsis.
Tsukumo Ryusuke is neuroscientist working for the National Research Institute of Police Science (part of the National Police Agency). He is generally incapable of reading the atmosphere of a situation, but when it comes to science, he is well respected. Whenever something catches his interest, he thoroughly sticks to it and never gives up, chasing down the criminals with certainty.

and mak2 or ibu2 kita selalu bangun malam..buat semayang hajat utk kita kan..with or without us knowing it..but how often us, the anak2 nie bangun malam n berdoa for our parents?? sense of the give n take..cz they also need our prayers as much as we need theirs kan..hurmm..
same goes to our atok2 or nenek2..or family members lah kn, no matter how much care we show them, like buy this or tht for them..help them with this or that..always be there for them..don't u think it's rather not so worthy for them if we dnt pray for them? bukan ke tu semua very superficial..?coz the true way to show our unconditional love is not only frm wut we do on the outside which will be of no help for them in the hereafter. coz the one yg dpt pahala if we care for them now is none other than kita jugak. but how bout them? lagi2 la kalao yg dah pulang ke Rahmatullah..x kire how close we were with them mase di dunia nie..wut they need most is our prayer jugak in the end..apa guna mase hidupnya mcm belangkas, pemergiannya nanges bagai nk rak pulak tp once they're gone, wut's left is jst some traces of memories. the useless one kat 7 kaki dalam tu.
-just making sense of wut suddenly popped out of my mind-
n i really admire those who care bout others more than they care bout themselves..sifat empathy yg melimpah-ruah skali tuh..
tu the extent, bukn ank sendiri pn..bkn kawan2 mkn maggi semangkuk pn..tp tetap pray for their very best..bila bangun malam pn still pray for the very best for that othr persons.
tahap kemanisan iman tu is when we love our bros n sisters more than we love our own selves. kan? hope i get tht right..
bile kita leh jd camtu?

THE CLIMB - Miley Crus
I can almost see it
That dream I’m dreaming but
There’s a voice inside my head sayin,
You’ll never reach it,
Every step I’m taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking
But I got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high
** There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb
The struggles I’m facing,
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down but
No I’m not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
Keep on moving
Keep the faith baby
It’s all about
It’s all about
Keep the faith
Keep your faith

10 mins bus..15 mins walking..2 hrs of waiting..finally i got called in..
"there's nothing much we cn prescribe here.." sheesh!
still, i got a list of possibly 'useful' OTC meds frm her n a piece of advice too. at least im a bit relieved even though i still need an appointment at cripps.
btw, that ws less than 5 mins..!
then another 10 mins of walking..dropped by boots for the meds..then back home on leather... haha
half day is gone.
p.s; im not whining, jst letting it out!
owh yes n one more thing, i found this frm blog hopping..
" Whenever we encounter a big problem,never say "Oh God, I have a big problem!"Instead say, "Hey problem, Ive got a BIG God!"...

Any thing we encounter in our daily life, any info traces from our surroundings, or whatever our lecturer said in class is first considered as (1). Can only be encoded into (2) through ATTENTION. (so pay attention!) Without it, (1) can only lasts for 0.3-0.5 secs. And ability to sustain attention can be achieved by making an EFFORT. What's more, (2) also doesn't last long, which is only for 10-15 secs. The consolidation process by the brain to shift (2) to (3) is via REHEARSAL. (so, rehearse wut we've learnt in class i.e recall!) And Atkinson 1968 says, items can only enter (3) via (2)..so we cn only remember things in longer term if we rehearse them often. kan? n as expected, our long term memory has UNLIMITED STORAGE CAPACITY.
n some says sleep improves memory? well it's more evident in procedural memory rather than factual type of memory so i guess whoever uses their buku sejarah spm as bedtime story book (like me) last time was in fact a bit pointless..(unless ur point of doing so ws to help u fall asleep faster).
on the other hand, the 2 amines norepinephrine and dopamine are highly correlated to attentional or motivational state at the time of learning. (i think i shud consider searching for those 2 in tablets nw..ada ke eyh?haha) And cholinergic activity eg ACh in hippocampus is also very importnt in learning. it's already proven that Cholinesterase inhibitor (physostigmine) gives above-normal result in memory retrieval experiment. (ada jual dipasarankah? :p)
To wrap-up, doa, usaha, ikhtiar and tawakkal lah.
Sungguh, Allah mencintai org2 yg bertawakkal.
Selamat ber-exam!~ (^_^)

jst something i came across with when i was at a Gaza talk organised by nottingham stop war.
actually i was kinda sleepy during the talk coz i ws quite exhausted..yela jst got bck frm Prague then membaking-baking tart 4 cardiff games so the talk pn became so-so jugakla..
but wut fascinates me was the fact tht all sorts of ppl came for the talk. yes all sorts. muslim, of course. n the non-muslims, from old grandma to children. from weird-looking chaps to the hey-im-cool youths. seriously i think it's amazing. we might bump into these kind of ppl who look rather 'weird' or 'scary' to be near with on the street. but hey these ppl might also be the one who have something in common with u..they also CARE. we tend to judge ppl by their looks. but deep in their heart, we dnt know a thing! they cud be much better than those who look proper on the outside but actually ignorance in the inside.
n i cn even hear the granma behind me struggling to breathe properly! n she still come..if we were at tht age, will we still CARE as much as she does??

u knw there are ppl who're really good at everything they do? some even hav almost evrythng in life..frm looks, to wealth, capabilities and perfect partners. they must be jack of all traits and master of everything too. but is tht really considered as evrything in life?or is it more to life?isn't tht jst too gud to be true? is it justifiable? did those ppl who excel in every single thing they lay their finger on work very hard diligently?or are they gifted? coz i too, wonder why cn't i excel in everything i do? did i not do my best and try hard enough?mayb yes.haha. but i believe, evryone has a different story of their lives. God is All Knowing. He gives more to those who're grateful. wut shud keep us going i think is faith. coz if we wanna reason evrything in life n question evrybody's fate..bole commit suicide kot! and the desire to excel will also keep us going..me too, jst like u, hav tht desire. n it's very strong too. at least in one thing, oh no actually two. mayb we cnt be narrow-minded n see "excellency" in a smaller scope or limited area. see it in a bigger picture, tht serves our purpose of life, then i tink there'll be lights at the end of the tunnel for us. may we work hard for it and may God makes it easy for us. Ameen.
p.s; i hav no idea frm where in the world did all these suddenly popped out of my head. but it's something useful to ponder upon tho.i think.

jst got bck frm paintballing yesterday, omak aii sakit2 badan den~ n for the first time ever, the team i ws in won the game!haha!p.s; sesape tau mengurut meh2 ler tolong haa..^^
then the night before, our Thai course-mate invited us to a Thai Night event in trent. Lov the atmosphere, the performances and the food too esp Som Tum! **suddenly feels like going to bangkok or phuket for holiday** I jst knew tht they eat sticky rice..so how come the beras siam we hav in msia x sticky pwn?Towards the end of the night, it became a bit draggy already. full, bloated and bored..off we went home.
the night before the thai nyte was IAW grand dinner...the whole IAW this yr was such a great success, job well done isoc ppl!gotta help out with the flyering on my day off. it's very rewarding when ppl spent a few mins of their busy time to listen to wut u has gotta say esp bout ur own religion but when ppl avoid u, giving those ure-annoying-dnt-come-near-me kind of look, yea it kinda upsetting but i enjoyed it tho. we also opened up a booth on the cultural fair day but we ended up selling food instead =) thanks 2 those who helped out!May our good deeds be blessed by Him insyaAllah. we made some new frens too :p it moved the heart u knw to hear how ppl suddenly found out that they're 'lost' in the world greed n how they work so hard to find "the right path" for a peace of mind. and us, how ironic we cn sometime forget the value of this greatest gift of all and take it for granted when the others r working so hard at it.
