anyway,i'm in india now pursuing dentistry.so far it has been ok with some complications thrown in between.
my first meal in india:chicken briyani.the chicken briyani here is a whole lot different than in malaysia.the mutton balls they served with it was fantastic.i had this when i reached tiruchirapalli.there are no airports in salem so we had to take road transport from the airport to my college.
this is where i had to stay at first:hotel kirthikaa palace.1-star hotel la but it seemed to be a better place to stay than my hostel at that time.
this is a food court.look cool right?there's nothing cool about it inside though.ahahahaha.although there was pizza.............
this is my house!hahaha.apparently we were supposed to be shifted to the (currently undergoing construction) new hostel sometime soon.for now,we have to stay here.looks shabby,huh?
it does not look that bad inside.in fact,it's quite decent.we've got BIG TV,india's astro but i never watched the tv.
we've got a fridge as well (the guy at the back is premman).
hahaha.sure we'll return to malaysia with diabetes!hahaha.
the girls stay at the opposite row.we're separated by a pavement which we make full use of......
we (actually them) play football and......................
volleyball!hahaha.we even had badminton practice sessions,gatherings,photo sessions,briefings.gosh.its like a multi purpose jalan (MPJ).hahaha.the practice sessions are held in conjuction with the PIDC cup 2009 which i will inevitable blog about sometime soon.
this is the unlucky guy who was chosen by fate to be my roomate.his name is kabilan.so far i have stolen his chocolates,biscuits;farted merciless in his presence;used his iron etc etc.kesian him.hahahahahaha.
this is a bus that will take us to our classes which is at least a 10minute walk.during the first 2 weeks i was so rajin,waking up at 5.30am just to get ready to get on the bus which arrives at 7.45am.classes start at 9am.hahaha.now i'm waking up at 7am.hahahaha.
that is the medical college.we only have physiology practicals,microanatomy and dissection anatomy classes there.there are a lot of cadavers (dead bodies used for educational purposes) at the dissection hall so the hall smells like formalin.gosh.i can't offer you pictures of the cadavers as its disrespectful of the dead.i did get myself a skull though for 400rupees which is roughly RM30 (taking into account the exchange rate is RM1=13.1 rupees).its in my room now.hahaha.
i'm having most of my classes at a nearby building:Vinayaka Missions Hospital.haha.its a private hospital and yet our government hospitals are very much well equipped.i saw rats,cracks on the wall,unhygienic conditions.gosh.and yet their motto is "you're in safe hands".wtf.
PIDC owns the 5th to 8th floor of the hospital.so we have our classes mostly on the 8th floor and a lecture hall at the ground floor.
