Of Thesis and Iron Man

Here's a short update and you'll get some idea what I'll be going through for the coming weeks if I didn't update my blog.

Thesis:
I've met up with my thesis supervisor yesterday and she's given me a suggestion for my thesis title: comparison between the parasitic contamination between wet market and hypermarket. I find this topic pretty interesting, though I might need to catch a rat right at the market and comb its hair to get the parasites sample attached on it - scary! And maybe to compare between non-cemented wet market and the cemented ones. Hence if there's a lot difference between them in terms of parasitic contamination, then maybe we can suggest to the local council to upgrade the wet market for local community's benefit. It is more to public health as well as lab work. I'm suppose to start reading, especially on Helmint and Protozoa - their infective stage, parasitic stage, mode of transmission and etc. Also journals on wet markets and hypermarkets. Basically everything related will do.

Industrial Training:
I'm going to start my industrial training on 20th May till 27th June in Bukit Mertajam Hospital in Penang. The hospital no doubt near my home but I'm still having problem with the transportation to get there. I wonder if RapidPenang can help... Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to the training and hope I'll learn as much as I can, and have a good time with the people there, too. Also awaiting is the writing of report regarding this training. Report...oh~report...

Iron Man:
Yup, just watched it. Believe me, as a person who doesn't fansy Transformer on the supertitious reason that robotic works are plain boring, Iron Man is more humane than I expected! The robotic part is pretty cool maybe because the director didn't play on it too much like the Terminator series. As for the story line, it is interesting and makes me ponder on the idea of weapons (of mass destruction) and its purpose. Last but not least, the sense of humor injected into the movie is easily understood. Fantastic!

Well, I watched this movie with Lee Fang, Lau, and Darryl at BTS after our debate training camp and a lunch with Ai Huey. That explains most of the reasons why I enjoyed this movie very much.

BTS is Berjaya Time Square. It's the nearest cinema we have around UKM KL Campus and student price is available during weekdays before 6pm (RM7 per seat for student vs RM11) =)

Thanks for the good ideas for my thesis research! I think I can try on them because I need to get as many samples as possible, then only analyse and filter.

Thanks Teddy.
