5.NMR lab

Yesterday was my NMR lab and it is interesting. The complicated chart below took us around 2 hours to understand and identify what is the impurities. Starting is always the difficult one but after the explanation from the demostrator, at least i understand what i am doing. ( But not tatally, i am still....cofusing in some part )

Before we start our work, we actually got a short briefing from Dr. Sandy, one of the very good lecturer in UoS ( Respect, respect )
Some of his words really catch my attention and i noticed that he like to use the word 'your favourite grandmother' in giving example.( PS : not scolding rude word )

Dr. Sandy : Treat all your patient like your favourite grandmother. If i ask you to dispense these paracetamol tablets to your patient, u must ensure that ur favourite grandmother will still alive tomorrow. So, we have to make sure that all the tablets u dispense are safe to your patient. We are doing this ( the analytic work ) not because we need to but is to make sure our product is safe to the patient.

PS: I already rephrase the words from the original conversation.

Well, u can see how important is a pharmacist right? haha..Patient focus is important.

NMR chart for my sample.oi meh!! so complicated. Luckly i manage to understand a bit.

The naughty thing spotted!!!

4.Stressful sem 6

Semester 6 classes are really hectic and pack. Although we only have 3 subjects to go but these are the tough one. 7 hours lecture in a day and it is able to cover up to 40 to 50 pages of the module notes ( I think more than that, cant remember ) After listening to all the story from our seniors, we are now more anxious, stress and worry for the end of semester exam. High failing rate especially for PP3 due to negative marking scheme. So P105, just work for the very best and i really hope that everyone of us and go pass this semester.

Illegal prescription will led to......FAILURE in exam.....

The bible for the pharmacists

This is the tough one!!!

3.Food food food!!!

Already 2 weeks since the day i arrived to Glasgow. Everything is fine and one thing i really miss the most is the delicious food from Malaysia. Over here, you will see many shops selling sandwiches and burger. From here, i notice that the people over here always get sandwiches and burger as their meal, usually lunch time. I am now having phobia of eating bread but no choice because it is the cheapest food. 40p u will get 1 loaf of bread and we have no time to prepare our lunch due to busy timetable. ( only 1 hour break !! ) Well, the best decision is to eat SANDWICH!

Tips to junior : Eat more food in Malaysia. Dont eat so much bread because you will eat a lot here. For those who dunno how to cook, it is best for u to learn now.

Wondering what food we can get here?? You will save a lot of money if u cook at home. It depends on what u cook. Usually it costs around 1-2 pound per meal, and share between 4 of us. So, u do the calculation how much it is
Anyway, dont worry bout living cost. If you can cook, you will save a lot :-
Check out what we cook over here. It is nice and i enjoy eating my own cooking.

Me and Edmond secret recipe. We discovered the recipe for sweet and sour meat ball. haha!! Good job man..

2. West End Festival

Date : 9 June 2007
During the briefing session, we were told that there gonna be a West End festival at Hillhead. Eventually, we dicided to travel all the way there and check out what is going on there. I am not sure about this event but it was a nice experience to look at the parade formed by groups of people who dress up with nice suits, dancing, playing music instrument and walking down the street.

Super big pieces of fish and chips and it is only 3 pounds.
