Finally! A pOsT aftEr abOut 2 & a haLf mOntH...

Assalamualaikum! Hi guys! Sorry sebab lama giler xpost. Busy la... Practical la katakan... Huhu!

Speaking about practical, today is actually my last day doing practical at IMR. Sedey la jugak.. terpaksa tinggalkan kwn2 yg len, Supervisor, RA and RO yang byk bagi tunjuk ajar... Sob2...

To Dr. Noor Rain, Mr Cheah, Fariza and the others, thank you so much for the experience. Mr Cheah, thanks la sebab sudi mengajar saya yg lembab ni. You are a good teacher. Fariza, hahaha! Serious but funny at most of the time (xtahan gelak bila teringat pasal a bug in the agarose gel. Hahahaha! bengong tol.).

To Tamrin, Mizan, Kak Azrina, En. Sawaji, Mr. Muthu, Kak Siti, En. Lan, seronok ada orang2 macam korg sumer kat ofis. Xder la rasa pressure sgt bila nak datang bekerja. Hahaha!

To Ila, Siti, Fizah, Suhana, Huda and Shin, korang memang best! Best ar lepak2 ngan korg kat meeting room belakang borak2. To Kak saliza oso, thank you for all the stories yg macam2. Mengarut pn ada. Hahaha!

I had learned a lot from my industrial training and i hope i really can apply it in the future. Seriously. It will be a waste if i never use it in my lab session or whatsoever. Because of this, i thinking of chosing BioPharmaceutical as one of my elective subject in my final year. Maybe, in this subj, i will be able to apply all the skills that i had learned at IMR. Huhu!

Ok la. Malas nak tulis byk2. In the next post, i will write what i had learned during my training at Bioassay Unit, Herbal Medicine Research Centre (HMRC), IMR.

Roger and Out!!
