the story of betty

When I entered the honda showroom in Jl. Jamin Ginting Medan back in 2008, I didn.t intend to buy her.
I was aiming for a Vario instead. But vario was out of stock at that time, the latest I can get the vario is three months time.

Betty : brand new

Honda Beat is new. It wasn't even on the tv yet. I am clueless about this scooter. Nevertheless, I choose her. The orange Honda Beat. The Betty.

Owning the Betty was uber cool. After a few months, strangers will sang the song 'Beat' popularized by the Indonesian Idol when I scoot through. I am happy. Betty helped me get to my destinations. Campus, society meetings, friends house, malls, etc.. she even made it to Bukit Lawang and Brastagi! :D

Being stopped by the police was scary. It was my fault coz my helmet was missing, and I didn't have the courage to steal my housemates, they were all sleeping at that time, and I thought surely they will want to use it later. So I went gung-ho to a society meeting place, which took place in Polonia, which is near the airport, thus police's fav spot. I paid dearly, and get a crappy helmet in return. But, it's pink.

My firsts with Betty is like the firsts with babies, 1st flat tyre, 1st service, 1st wash-her-yourself....haha

Honda, China, Singapore
When clinical started, I had to problem to go anywhere...until the accident happened. I'm separated by Betty for 2 full months for my recovery, while she and her broken things are left at Medan.

When I recovered, my friend helped me took her to Honda. She was severely injured, and needed a whole new front body. She (and me) waited for another 2 months for the body to be constructed (you see, at that time, orange Beats are no longer produced). I paid another large sum of money, and then I get her back, good as new!

It took some time before I took her to the main road. But as easy as ABC, she and I get along quickly, just like old friends. No more problems and dramas after that.

When it's time for me to leave Medan, I don't know why I'm being selective about who's who's gonna buy her. Many has deal me but I just seem to have trust issues. I'm handing over my baby, for heaven sake!

Betty's new owner!

 Until I met this girl, who like orange very much, and like Betty very much. I sold Betty to her, and made a friend too. I hope Betty continue to serve her just as well as she has to me.

Betty last photo :D
Bye betty! What's next ? :D

Finishing clinical at USU

Salam blogreaders.
I've been away for 2 weeks to clear all academic and fees with the university in order to register the graduation. It can be a hassle if you don't know the process, but it'll be easy, insyaAllah, if you already know what to expect.

I'm blogging this entry just for the sake of USU juniors really, hope you'll find this beneficial.

1) The green book.
The green book which holds our clinical marks is to signed by the clinical coordinator.
So first, complete collecting all the marks from each department then you can proceed to the clinical coordinator. A delay in collecting all the marks means a delay in 'closing' the green book.
At this moment there are three person able to 'close'the book, dr. Rusda SpOG, dr. Ibnu SpPA, and dr Rusli Dhanu SpS.

*The length of your study time depends on the date of you 'closing' the book. Which also means your fees depends on it too.
** When 'closing' your book, make sure the clinical result form in berkas wisuda are filled so the coordinator can sign it as well.

Berkas wisuda is the graduation register forms. You will be given a list of things you need to fotocopy and stuffs. Some of it are :

  • fill up the form, makesure that you have the Profesi Dokter form, not the Sarjana Kedokteran one.
  • fotocopies of previous SPP until the latest, in case you didn't know, those finishing before Batas Akhir Pembayaran SPP is free from that semester' fees, those finishing BEFORE Ujian Tengah Semester (UTS) is eligible to pay HALF, those finishing AFTER UTS is needed to pay full semester fees. Claim your money if you finish BEFORE UTS. 
  • fotocopies of previous KHS
  • fotocopies of the green book, and you need to hand in the green book also
  • fotocory of your Sarjana Kedokteran certification. Make sure you already taken them when entering upper cycle, they'll be ready by then.
  • pictures, black and white, you'll find the specifications, but you'll also need extra to paste in the forms. Write your name and NIM behind each pictures.
  • Rp400,000.00 for graduation fees.

Surat Keterangan Tanda Lulus is the most important of all, if you want to start working ASAP.
This letter, which name said it all, will entitled you to apply to MMC(Malaysian Medical Council) and KKM(Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia). 
However, this letter takes about a week to be done. So plan your flight tickets wisely.

That's about it. Congratulations on finishing your studies. Welcome home.

it is a word that has a meaning so different from 'cuek'.
'cuek' is an Indonesian word that means 'not bothering to think or do something about it'.

apa-apun berserahlah kepada-Nya.

the thing is, my paeds marks tak keluar lagi.

itulah punca munca cuak nih. selagi markah takdapat, I cannot proceed to other matters.

esok, nak pegi berjuang di Medan semula. medan perang gittew.

Doakan in a week everything can be settled, insyaAllah.
