Me and my cats

Hello guys. How are you?

That is the current photo, with me and Saky..Lunch date with her...hehehe.. I'm holding Yvonne's book. Well guys, there is no power for the eyeglasses, I wear it to protect my right eye because I cannot close the right eye since my first surgery.

Cheeky (one of my cats) will started to MEOWWWWWWing...........when I wear the eyeglasses at home and she will keep on MEOWWWWWWing until I remove the eyeglasses. She is very particular (and she always wanted to know what I am doing). I told her, I wear the eyeglasses to protect my eyes from dust and etc.. She keeps on MEOWWWWWing. Maybe Cheeky will have a conversation with the rest of the cats (to update about me-I perasan, macam I best, hehehe) in CATS MEETING... who knows..

Cheers guys!

A book for sale-help this girl to raise funds

Hello guys. How are you today?

This girl, a friend of mine, is now raising funds for her emergency surgery. She need it now, and it is a matter of life and future.

A brief about the author of this book:-

"Yvonne Foong was just sixteen when she was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a genetic illness with no cure. That discovery propelled her into the fight of her life, and she embarked on an international odyssey to treat the tumours raging within her. Stark and revealing, I'M NOT SICK,..."

Funds Raising for Yvonne

Hello guys..How are you?

My fellow friend, Yvonne Foong, will have a surgery with the expert at HEI, LA, the same place where I went before. She has RM20,000.00 in hands, so she needs another RM80,000.00 to achieve RM100,000.00.

She is an author of a book "I'm not sick, but a bit unwell", an inspiration book, that strikes many Malaysian about her, and genetic disorder that most of us take for granted. The fact that she was totally deaf, and with her conditions, she still manages to helped many people seeking for helps, including me. I understand how she feels now. It is a matter of life. There are many things to consider because it involves the future. We cannot know God plans, but we can do something now. It also involves medical history that only those doctor who familiar in this case can do. Even a decade, HEI still have the same team of doctor. Like my doctor, Dr. Rick Friedman said, "I will be here for you, and I always be here at HEI"

Let spread the words and help Yvonne. She also sales T-shirt and many more. You may contribute to her personally to Maybank savings account 112223202599.

Parking space for OKU

Hello guys! How are you? Hope you guys are in good conditions.

The above photo is taken at a parking space Carefour Wangsa Maju. There is one car without a OKU car sticker parked in that space. I guess maybe this person want to go inside Carefour toilet and to pee, possibly. Hahaha... Even those who have OKU car sticker, or OKU (People With Disabilities) did not park there.

They said this car will be clamped, but until I go back to my car (one and half hour later), the car is still there and free to go-the car was not clamped. I don't know, maybe after I go, the car is going to be clamped, or going to be fined! RM100 is nothing to this people, I supposed.

Malaysia is my country

Hello guys! How are you? Hope you guys are in good conditions.

Well, lately ever since Dr Rick Friedman of HEI removed the entire tumor, there is a question that is surrounding me always, and in fact, most of you outside there. A question, why can't the surgeon in Malaysia remove it?

Believe it or not, there will be multiple surgeries for Acoustic Neuroma in Malaysia. Like me, the first time I've found the tumor was last year and it was already 4 cm above. The surgery runs for more than 12 hours (at HUKM) but the doctor only manages to remove part of the tumor. It was very sad for me and a very devastating moment. Like it or not, I have to face another major surgery. But I ask myself, what happen if there will be another major surgery because the doctor really cannot remove the entire tumor (without damaging surrounding nerves). Who will be responsible for it? The doctor at the hospital? My friends? Family? The answer is, we responsible to ourselves.

I look for the surgeons. Most surgeons, even in HKL, are afraid to remove the entire tumor and I don't want to take the risk.

My decision to go to L.A, USA changes everything. I've decided to go there. With the help of my fellow friend, Yvonne, the surgeon, Dr Rick Friedman managed to remove the entire tumor. In less than 9 hours, his team manage to remove the entire tumor.

The same surgeon, Dr Rick Friedman and his team managed to remove 6.2 cm tumor! It was the biggest tumor ever removed in HEI! The patient, Hidayah Cynthia able to walk again after a few months using a wheelchair, after the first operation at HUKM last few years ago has failed, and left her being unable to walk.

How do they do it? How they can minimise the risk? How they remove the entire tumor in one operation? There will be multiple surgeries in Malaysia for 6.2cm Acoustic Neuroma tumor. What went wrong with our surgeons? Is it because of money? Is it because of skills/experience? Is it because of politic matter? I believe we have spent time and money for training. Do we like to look our own patients to go elsewhere around the world to look for the best surgeons? Does our surgeons lack of experience/skills? I believe they are... Don't be mad at me, but look at the truth, and put aside your ego for a moment. Improve the standard.

It sounds like I'm questioning Allah, rite? No guys, I am a Muslim. I accept the way I am now, that what Islam teaches me. The above questions are for us to find the answer. It has been many years already.
