Restoran 3 : 3 Lekkar di Puncak Datai Bay, Langkawi

Restoran ni diusahakan oleh Nasir, kawan kepada Hamdi sebenarnya. Terletak di puncak dekat pintu gerbang ke Datai Bay (yeah, kawasan orang orang kaya tu) cukup unik dan ada style...sesuai dengan tajuk blog ni..ha ha. Tapi harga makanan di sini cukup berpatutan dan sebab tuan punya tahu kita orang bloggers...dia kasi lagi 10 % diskaun.. 7 orang makan kenyang gila adalah dalam RM 50...dipuncak yang terpencil cam tu..mana mau dapat !!

Ni antara edisi makan meriah di Langkawi...Beruang madu 2 pinggan ker ?? he he

Me, Pinky, Dik La and Chen (yang tak suka di tag di FB dan cakap FB boringgg !!!)


Payung colour hijau ni memang menarik perhatian......mmmmm

View dia pun menghadap ke sementara tunggu dia masak tempahan kami yang berjela tu..sempat posing kat laut luas..sambil buat aksi lompat jugak ..he he

Makanan dan minuman yang sungguh authentik ...sedapppppp....dijamin

Kalau anda datang ke Langkawi,,please do try ! marveles dan cosy dan murah !!



I hope it is not too late to wish everyone Merry X Mas especially to my friends who are celebrating it. I managed to catch this play in KLPAC on the last 23rd December which is narrated from Charles Dicken's book.... Christmas Carol. It is directed by one of my good friend, Christopher Ling who has given so much effort to come up with an awesome show . The casts and crews did a superb job as well.
The story is about the stingy Mr. Scrooge and the reflections of his past, present and the future with characters surrounding him. A sold-out show with magnificent casts/crews... yeah this play is far above your expectation ! Well Done !

Syabas to HUKM docs and nurses

I WRITE to share my experience and offer a big thanks to the doctors and nurses of Hospital Uni–versiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) in Cheras.
I had a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital. At the emergency centre I was immediately attended to by Dr Sharifudin, Dr Azhana and their team who did a very professional job.
I was sent to the CCU ward and was taken care of by Dr Azura, Dr Masliza and their team of nurses until I was able to be sent to the CRW ward to recover.
There I was attended to by another caring team – Dr Ting, Syukur, Ika Faizura, Faizan and Lee, and nurses. Dr Ting and Dr Syukur did an angiogram and found a block in my left coronary artery.
Dr Ting did an angioplasty and I now have a stent.
I have recovered tremendously due to the hard work and professionalism of all the doctors and nurses of HUKM.
Keep up the good work. Be the best and beat the rest, Syabas again HUKM.
Cheras, Selangor.

It is an honour to treat every patient that landed to our care... To Anand, thank you and hope you have a speedy recovery.. I just feel good Today....We finished the angio the day before at 10 pm and this news really put a big smile on US..Thanks !!

Raya Haji Di Rumah Shah

Lama jugak tak tulis dalam Bahasa Melayu.. Ok lah istimewanya AidilAdha berbanding raya puasa adalah memahami erti sebuah pengorbanan dalam kehidupan kita sehari hari. Tambah meriah laungan takbir dibolehkan selama tiga hari lamanya. Yup ...pagi lagi my mum dah call .. kena berleter sebab raya sorang sorang kat KL.. Dulu dah explain memang tak dapat balik sebab wad allocation yang menyebabkan sorang aje dan time macam ni memang susah nak minta orang lain cover, tambahan pulak raya tu jatuh Isnin.. Itulah nasib badan.. dah la raya puasa dulu pun on call malam raya ! Apa nak buat ? Lepas kena berleter, dia tanya jugak lastly daging tu nak masak apa untuk dikirimkan thru my sister yang dah kat kampung ..camtu prihatin si ibu ! Thanks mum for your understanding

Nasib Dr Shah jemput ke rumah bapanya, untuk meraikan raya haji ni...Wahaza yang keretanya accident pun tak dapat balik dan Hamdi yang stuck dengan presentation dia on Tuesday..Pengorbanan kan.. Shah pulak on call malam raya..Patutnya Saharil Conteng pun ikut sekali ..mmm landslide kot ! ha ha

Bersama Pak Zain, yang kerektor dia lebih kurang my dad jugak..rupa pun ada sikit kot iras..he he.. I like your Proton Zain la uncle !!

Gambar kat bawah ni kabur sikit almaklumlah kan 3 pemilik DLSR dalam gambar tu... sapalah yang ambil ni ?? he he he. Anyway...suka dengan ekspressi gambar ni.

To Shah and family, thank you for having us menghabiskan makanan ..he he..and nice to know your friends from different perspective and from their family background.

David Vs David

They are both talented and young..placing as the ultimate winner and 1st runner-up for last year American Idol, US most popular reality singing competition. Yeah...finally their debut offerings in music industry came to our record stores.

David Archuleta with his self-titled album is the new pop sensation. The first single "CRUSH" is simply soothing to hear . Nevertheless, at some point , i think his vocal isn't equally good in an album as compared to his live performance.. Yeah he is better than that vocally.

I always fancy the rock stream by David Cook.... Did you remember when he sing his own version of Mariah Carey's Always Be My Baby on the show.... i never knew that such girlie song could turn to a more manly sound..ha ha ..Bravo !

When this 2 Davids collide in music industry,,, i personally think they shared equal amount of fans and they are equally good.

I leave you with "CRUSH" from David Archuleta.....mmmm....the lyrucs however sounded very cynical.... at least to me ! Enjoy !

I hung up the phone tonight
Something happened for the first time deep inside
It was a rush, what a rush
'Cause the possibility
That you would ever feel the same way about me
It's just too much, just too much

Why do I keep running from the truth?
All I ever think about is you
You got me hypnotized, so mesmerized
And I've just got to know

Do you ever think when you're all alone
All that we can be, where this thing can go?
Am I crazy or falling in love?Is it real or just another crush?

Do you catch a breath when I look at you?
Are you holding back like the way I do?'
Cause I'm trying and trying to walk away
But I know this crush ain't goin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayyGoin' away-ay-ay-ay-ayy

Has it ever crossed your mind
When we're hanging, spending time girl, are we just friends?
Is there more, is there more?
See it's a chance we've gotta take'
Cause I believe that we can make this into something that will last
Last forever, forever

Day by day, new cardiologists being born to accomodate the task to treat people who care less about their own health.. yeah from smoking, lack of exercise, high cholestrol diet, eating too much sugar and salt. This what happened if you are not being vigilant enough about your own lifestyle.... blocked coronary arteries leading to a massive heart attack ! Picture below taken from my own patient angiogram which i did myself with supervision from my consultant.. half of the distal right coronary artery was gone...and yet the patient is still survived...

We just opened our new cath lab (angiogram) with this new machine and eqiupment which is more user-friendly and multi-functional. Amazing!! and i begin to love operating with this TOY....ha ha

The radiation involved in the precautions needed !!

The catheters used from various sizes and brands..

The contrast used .... try using it as minimal as we can as long as good pictures captured for proper interpretation in our final report.

This group of Japanese team comes to our centre once in one or two months to perform conjoint difficult cases of angiogram especially the CTO's (complete total occlusion) and they are very friendly and established world standard.

Me aspiring future cardiologist..ha ha..insyaAllah the making...please pray for me...
My aim is to be a good one with the most fit and best body...ha ha... can ahhh ?? at least good example for the patient laaaaa... he he he... See ya.... It costs RM 300 to 600 for an angiogram in our centre while a deposit of rm 5,000 required for expected proceed angioplasty cases (the total amount depends on how many stents and balloons used and wether you are a government servant or not) ....whoaaa..that costly rite ?? SO LOVE YOUR not damage it easily...ciao !

Well, I never saw it coming.
I should've started running
A long, long time ago.
And I never thought I'd doubt you,
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know.
I'm slowly getting closure.
I guess it's really over.
I'm finally getting better
And now I'm picking up the pieces.
I'm spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together.'
Cause the day I thought I'd never get through,I got over you.


Assalamualaikum and good day to everyone... AKU PASTI DATANG is actually the new single from Bunga Citra Lestari which is i think best to potray what i did promise in my last entry...yeah to be back here ..inducing people's mind with a good cause. Unfortunately, ha ha...i can't still manage to download the catchy tune from Imeem for this one.. It already received massive airplay in our national radio.

"3 weeks of being in a sillhoutte" is definitely a short period for anybody to recover from any huge impact in their life and it is always time to move on and forget about the past and start to cherish new things and new possibilites in the near future.

I have to determine and focus on something significant to life and bring in some fresh new air to this blog. yeah yeah..ha ha....trying hard to reduce all the craps..

Sorry to everyone out there who find me annoying sometimes and a zillion thanks to friends and fellow bloggers for their never ending support.


Pictures below were from Pinky Welcome Home Red Satay Makan recently...with fellow bloggers...

Angkor Watt And Time Off From Blogging For A While..

I have just came back from the Cambodian Trip to Siam Reap on last Monday..Yup physically, mentally and emotionally a bit tired..I don't really know why because a trip supposed to be a rejuvenation one for me... maybe the weather of alternating hot, humid and rain and muddy flood made this one a tough one..ha ha. Bringing with you a rain coat or a poncho willl certainly help a lot. Angkor Watt and Angkor Thom are simply amazing. I got a chance to be at the front deck of a boat along the floating village of Tonle Sap river whereby one would photograph countless good beautiful photos for their own sweet memories of this place. And please be there near sunset time because it is sooooo breath-taking at that time.

They accepted both Real Cambodian and USD for trading here.. but the people prefers USD than their own local currency. They want dollar and keep on screaming one dollar only, 2 dollar only !!!!ha ha.. can't forget that..ha ha

I did post all pictures collection in my Facebook ....lot of them actually...and kindly add me there if you want to review all the pics.
To my avid readers, i need to take time off from blogging world for nearly a month (minimum) and hopefully i ll come back soon. I apologize for that but to friends, blogger friends and everyone out there who know my number or e-mail keep in touch and i will still be active in my Facebook account. Buzz me there !!
WHY ??? Mmmm i guess it is time for me to focus on things i need to do for the time has been abundant. And partly, because i need to spend time doing things like reading more, teaching my medical students under my care more( overjoyed that all my previous students passed their exam with flying colours!!! need to keep that good reputation..ha ha ha), spending my quality time at home more, training one of my friend for weight reduction at the gym, and so many other things that i render important now.. Blogging is important too but yeah...i am pretty empty of words right now with jammed ideas...I need to come back later with more motivating entries and hopefully i can inspire everyone out there...i have to analyze back because sometimes, people thought my life was great, has awesome job , nice "makan " activities and a very inspirational to others, but what IF some of it truly was a complete failure for me myself. Thank you everyone.... Yeah..i promise you i will be back.. See ya !

I leave you all with this beautiful song by Faizal Tahir ..Sampai Syurga...ENJOY it in my song section !

Dobutamine Stress ECHO (We Call It DSE for short)

I may confuse all of you again with some of the medical terms in this entry but don't worry , i will make easy for you to understand....yeah and this entry is not about makan makan but an entry which requires skill and your experienced interpretation.

You probably read our Dr. Shah's blog regarding his Exercise Stress Test (EST) which requires one to walk in different stages and the ECG tracings will then show wether the test renders a positive or negative outcome. Similarly, DSE (Dobutamine) stress ECHO is a functional study whereby we resort it to people who has inconclusive EST or patients who basically cannot run for example they have knee problems or neurological problems and etc. Dobutamine infusion helps to increase your heart rate to mimic the exercise actually..and even we inject bolus of Atropine if the target heart rate is not achieved. In addition, during the test, we observe the ECG tracings and the Echocardiography (Heart Ultrasound) to see any wall proportionate augmentation. We need to take heart moving pictures during baseline, low dose, peak dose and resting/ recovery period and it usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes per patient. My interpretation has to be certified by my consultant first before i report it on paper.

DSE helps to diagnose/suggest coronary artery disease (yeah..angiogram still a golden method), viability study before deciding bypass is a good option in severe heart disease with poor heart contractily or either a vessel has added benefit for angioplasty (coronary stenting)

Picture above : i was doing DSE for a diagnostic purpose....CAN YOU GUESS THE MACHINE PRICE ????(clue : very expensive !! ha ha ha)

Talking about sub-cardiology specialties : we branch into ; EPS study , cardio imaging (eg . cardiac MRI, MSCT), Peripherals, non-interventional, heart failure and etc.... And interest will be in heart failure therapy whereby one has to deal with chronic heart failure management, ICD's, heart and lung transplant options ...etc ..and i think this field is very challenging and i love challenge but is a long long way to go...

Officially 31....I Am Getting Older...And Then What ?

Yeah.. i am officially turn to 31 today. I always wish people with same stamp " a year older, a lot wiser" and i guess this i have to reflect this words to myself. Reminiscing back what i've done ,the achievements, the downfall and the successful stories really motivate me in welcoming my 31st with an open arm. It is time for me to think seriously about my future undertakings, my career and the path that i opt myself to be in. It scares me too as i have my list of dreams that i have to realize at least before i reach my 40. I hope that time i will reach my life destiny and be at my pinnacle of success.

I hope i changed for a BETTER person... Yeah 23 rd October is actually a transition between Libra and Scorpio horoscope...but i guess i am more f a Libran...he he

Thank you for all of your wishes !. Greatly appreciated.

Flying Chillies.... Simply Thailicious

My friends said I have been gaining weight lately...arrrrrgghhh.. yeah... this probably because too much of makan makan activities....Nevertheless, an invitation from a good friend of mine to this place is simply unforgettable. Flying Chillies ....Simply Thailicious is a Thai restaurant that you have to visit next on your list . Located in The Gardens Midvalley, it serves the authentic taste of Thai's best dishes that really suit well with my taste buds.

Both of us really love this place. With my NIKON DSLR and our chat about food , everyone around might be mistaken US as food critics........... that helped to speed up our order in a way...he he he. We ordered food enough for 4 people to eat and we did "tarfan" more rice..he he he.. The green curry is simply hot !!!!!!

Seafood Tomyam...Thai style was simply amazing !!

Asparagus for our vegetables....

The spring roll..... yummy !!

Chicken Pandan !!! awwwwww... delicious baby !!!

We have this for our dessert.... sweet and very seductive taste !!!

Even my drink was GOOD !!!!

The place with white concept and clean environment was really my favourite element to visit here once again...I gave good credit to this restaurant management for the awesome food... well ..i think it is more superior than the Bangkok House in terms of food taste, price and the ambience... Try visit this place and sawadikap to the food... A recommended place !!!

To my good friend... thanks for " belanja " me that night and hopefully we can search other great dining places in the near future....yeah after you are back from Europe.
