No surgery till July

Due to various reasons, I have decided not to proceed with the surgery till July. The main reason is TIME. The surgeon is busy, I am busy, MRI also busy (with failures & chiller problems). Several appointments had been postponed & that was really annoying. And I also worry that the knee will be worse after surgery……that’s a risk I can’t take before the trip to Rinjani.

I will climb Rinjani with the torn ligaments & meniscus. The pain is very minimal now. That’s contribute also to the decision.

And this is not an April Fool.

I am quitting IIUM

Well….that’s what a friend told me the rumour he heard recently. :D I do not know how this rumour started but just want to clarify to everyone that it is a rumour only and listen to this guys………….I am not quitting IIUM. Not yet. My contract still alive & kicking till the end of 2010. And more importantly I still like teaching. Err…if I am offered something better, to teach somewhere else…..err…that’s a different story. Ha ha ha….

Update:
Just heard rumors……there are at least two existing lecturers who are planning to quit…for various reasons. Hmmmm….. not me ye guys. Not me.

Haiyya…Monday oh Monday!

  1. Campus internet down due to power failure on weekends! Up within 1 hour…but….
  2. ICS (active directory) server down!! When I want to use them for teaching. But nevermind, why try access the local computer…but…
  3. The technician forgot the administrator password! Argh! I also don’t know! Then suddenly ICS is OK. But no internet connection……
  4. My SPSS in my notebook crashed…..when I want to use it.
  5. My MRI appointment postponed (AGAIN!!) due to technical problem. Wondering can the ortho surgeon do the reconstruction without MRI…..many people advised me not to do it. But I need to walk 7-8 hours continuously for about 2KM vertical & then another 7-8 hours trekking down Mount Rinjani in June 2009!
