The internet connection in my flat is crap this weekend. I have to come to the library to do my work.

AND!! The weather over the week is really horrible!! It was windy (very!) and heavy rain! Umbrellas dont work well here. After each heavy rain, you can see lots of broken unbrella by the bin. UMBRELLA REALLY DON'T WORK WELL HERE IN SCOTLAND! It is cold. I miss the nice sunny weather of Autumn with cool breeze running through my face.

I am now in the library and looking through the weather forecast at to check out the weather out there and see if I can go home. I don't want to walk in heavy rain, it is pathetic! Ok, back to the point. I found this funny thing:
Do u see that?? Rain/Snow Showers on Tuesday?? With high temperature of 3'C and low temperature of 0'C?? It's Autumn now and the weather looks like winter! It's going to be freaking cold. But I think is impossible to get snow in an Autumn day. We only get snow after January until spring.
I've never been so concern about weather back in Malaysia. Being in a four-season country, Glasgow is possible to have rain in the morning, sunshine in the afternoon, windy in the evening and snow at night!! Kinda weird, aye?
Well, hope there's going to be good weather during Halloween.

Eiffel Tower

When you look at this, you will think of Paris. It's the landmark of France as well. It's the most famous and well-known EIFFEL TOWER!

It is amazingly pretty that when you look at it with your real eyes are different from what you see from the above picture. It is magnificent! Before I went there, I thought it's just a huge telecommunication tower and the landmark of Paris. It totally change the way I think!

YOU, out there, if there's opportunity, must go to Paris one day! It might not the prettiest city but it's worth visiting. REMEMBER to bring your €€€ as it's going to cost more than London.

I will blog again soon.

BTW, I am now blogging in my 'funny' looking eye. Again, I got my left eye dilated again for clinical purposes as part of my course. It's not going to anything bad and don't feel scared when you are being asked to dilate your eyes. Just make sure they check your intraocular pressure before and after the dilation. I am now going through what my patients are going to experience in future.

I need to get back to my studies now and will update soon!

Dilated Pupil

Hi everyone!

I know i've not been updating my blog for ages!!

Now I am writing this blog with one of my eye being dilated. Means the my pupil (the centre black circle within the iris which allows light to go into the eye) is bigger than how it's suppose to be. I am writing this just for general interest.

This is the normal right eye of how the pupil size is suppose to be. It would be smaller under strong light. My normal pupils can say to be quite big.

However, after putting some drops, the pupil of my left eye is bigger. We did this for clinical purposes, just to use ophthalmoscope to see the fundus (back of the eye - basically the retina).

Under normal circumstances, the pupil size must be equally the same. If there's anyone in an accident has pupil of different sizes, he/she might be suffering from head injuries as well as concussion.

After one of my pupil is dilated, the things i see seems to be a wee bit funny and blurry, especially when i go from a darker place to a brighter place. The dilation would be gone maximum of 24 hours and if it's quick, the drops would only last for a couple of hours. My lecturer, Dr Loffler said we might not be able to read for a couple of hours, but it's all seems fine to me right now.

It was a fun clinical experience which we did it in our very own Eye Clinic of the university. There's a lot of cool stuff in there which we would need to learn.


p/s: I promise I will update my blog soon with more interesting stuff!
