e-booking?!


I’ve always been so traditional.. Even when it comes to reading, I’ve never felt comfortable reading on a screen. It just doesn’t feel real; e-books don’t allow me to sense the texture of the pages as they crunch when I flip through the book, and of course, they don’t smell like real books! 😛

However, since technology is now the trend, e-book readers have invaded the market and one can’t just overlook the fact that they’re making the reading experience more enjoyable and closer to reality..

Yesterday, while browsing my mother’s Galaxy-Tab, I noticed the installed “Kobo” reader and saw it was appealing! I’m not sure I’ll stay that interested, but I’ve already downloaded few books and planned to start “e-booking” soon. I might begin with “Pride and Prejudice” for it’s so recommended, but I’m open to any suggestions! 🙂

iQuote: (4) What friends are for..


It's amazing that..

“Only true friends go straight to your refrigerator when they go to your house.”~ Unknown.

And it's great how..

“A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.” ~ Arnold H. Glasow.

Therefore..

“True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it is lost.” ~ Charles Caleb Colton.

And in the end..

“With true friends, even water drunk together is sweet enough.” ~ (Chinese Proverb).

Confessions of a semi-doctor: (6) Signs!


“A good doctor is a good observer.” Our professors keep saying! In fact, the effort a medical student exerts revolves mostly around obtaining that fine skill of watching. It’s all about scanning your patients for clues, and grasping threads that lead you to a close view of whatever illness they have.. Things referred to as “signs” in every medical book..

It’s confusing as you begin learning, for it ain’t that easy to “decode” those “signs”, analyze them and get a conclusion within few minutes, but eventually your eyes end up detecting random passers-by in the street!

The other day, I saw a slowly walking old man with shivering lips. I found myself subconsciously observing the tremors appearing in his hands, then “Parkinsonism” came on my mind! Today, I saw a man with a staring look and protruding eyes, I automatically shifted my gaze to his neck pulsations to find them pounding strongly, then “Thyrotoxicosis” gleamed in my head!!

I know it’s awkward, but if you found someone staring at you, don’t freak out, it might be a harmless doctor trying to figure out what you have! 😛 😛
