an alien invasion??

after the motorbike accident i had on Merdeka Eve, i went for an MRI. for the longest time i never knew what it meant, i didn't look it up coz i felt it wasn't necessary for me to know. hehehehe. of course that's not an excuse to not find out what it means. so now i know, MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

MRI was created by Dr. Raymond Damadian. he volunteered to be the test subject when nobody else wanted too. but it didn't really happen because it turned out Damadian was too big for the machine. in the end, a student voluntereed and on July 3 1977, MRI was first performed on a human being and it took almost 5 hours to produce an image.

MRI is done to diagnose brain tumors, torn ligaments, tendonitis, cancer, and strokes just to name a few. this is the best way to see the inside of someone without cutting them open! :D

before i went in i was asked questions like if i had metals in my body, if i had done a surgery and etc. i got a little bit confused when she asked about metals in my body..don't know why, maybe coz i always felt like a bionic woman with all my activities and sports...that i just dont know when to stop! (it's always important to have a balance in everything you do, i've learnt that). the procedure took about 45 minutes and that's only for my right knee! i wasn't allowed to move because just like a camera, when taken in low light and if you move, then the image will be blurred, and that means, it has to be taken again.

i was quite nervous when i was in the MRI machine. it was really noisy! it felt like an alien invasion. the sounds of the machine was kinda like a flying saucer in the movies where it just hovers above you and.... it also had like a machine gun noise! and the "bed" vibrated!

the funniest thing was after the nurse said i couldn't move, not even a twitch, she put on Savage Garden, The Wanted as the background music! now how was i suppose to keep still? i was so tempted to tap my feet! hahahaah

but jokes aside, this procedure made a hole in my pocket. RM952 was the amount i had to pay. the result will be out on Wednesday (29/09/2012) and let's hope my ligaments and tendons are fine. (fingers crossed)

luv, me.i

I met our previous Prime Minister of Malaysia!

so i was asked to emcee the press conference for the Monsoon Cup rebranding. i was very nervous because Yang Amat Berbahagia Datuk Seri Utama Tun Haji Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi was our VVIP! Tan Sri Sabaruddin Chik was also there. well basically, people with power were there.

i haven't done formal emcee-ing in awhile. it was quite refreshing and emcee-ing is always good (formal, parties, annual dinners etc..). i love doing it. so if you know of anybody who's looking for an emcee, do drop me a line on my fb (quick promo...hey dont judge me!)

 I know for a fact that riding a motorbike is a dangerous thing. My late mother banned all of us from riding a motorbike because it's simple...its DANGEROUS! But we cannot deny the fact that it is faster for you to get to one place to another. It's also cheaper for people who cannot afford to buy a car. But the sad truth is, no matter how careful, focus and cautious you are on the road, i would say that almost 90% of accidents of motorbikes are caused by other people. (cars, lorry etc..)

I celebrated my Merdeka eve of 2012 in the Sungai Buloh Hospital. I got into an accident with another motorbike which wasn't even our fault. My friend and i were riding from my office and the accident happened in Jalan Duta headed towards Jalan Parlimen. I already saw 2 motorbikes in front of us who were riding side by side in the middle of a busy road, to make it worst, they were chit-chatting with one another! Obviously when you are talking to another motorbike while riding, you are not focused and most of the time, you are not balanced. So that's how this story ended.

We rode straight into the bike who suddenly went off balance and swerved to the right, into us! 4 of us did a superman, and slid to the side of the road.  After all that, my friend quickly stood up, looked for me (to make sure i wasn't on the road) and he said he was seeing double. Took my bag off the main road and he quickly checked on me. The other 2 people who were injured were helped by their 2 friends, and what pissed me off was, the 2 bikes just rode off without even talking to us. The least they could do was find out how we were?! They knew it was their fault that this accident happened. it was a case of Hit and Run!

Our friend Fadinha, quickly rushed over to pick us up and brought us to the clinic to get our wounds cleaned. after that my sister brought us to the hospital. My knee was totally messed up. Both Cris and I had to do an x-ray and result showed that my knee-cap aka patella had shifted upwards and physiotherapy is needed. My jeans was not torn but this was what underneath it...Sigh... here are some pictures of the accident. 

p/s: not for the faint-hearted..

                                                      my knee cannot be stitched up

                                                       there are 2 holes on my knee

                                                                        cris's elbow

Moral of the story is, never ever go on a motorbike! you can take every step of precautions but the chances of you getting into an accident is very high.

luv, me.
