Pretty normal stuff this week, except for a couple of false fire alarm ringing in my lodge. The first one was when we were all having dinner. If not mistaken, the alarm comes from one of the room from the 1st floor.




Yup. Our will to survive is very strong. Even with the risk of being burnt to death in the building, our will to eat for survival pushes us to stay in the building and....continue eating.

But the second alarm really get on my nerves. It rang at 4.30AM on Thursday morning. 4.30 in the morning! Who the heck does stuff that involves smoke at 4.30 in the morning???!!!

The firemen even had to visit us at this wee hour.




















Luckily that is a normal false alarm. I would whack each and everyone of those firemen with an axe if they played some techno music and start stripping.

Besides that, I made my own medicine this week! It's a substance which is a relative of the famous Panadol, but not that popular in Malaysia because Panadol and its other siblings like Acti-Fast and Milidon conquer the market. That's right, give a big round of applause to my newly synthesized aspirin!!





















Surprisingly, this thing is pretty easy to make. All you need to do is add salicyclic acid with acetic anhydride in a 100 degree water bath to form acetylsalicyclic acid (aspirin). Then just have to filter it, and hey presto, aspirin! So the next time you have a headache, save money by contacting me. I can make this thing in around 2 hours :D

nikita: u cut urs to bits? not good...pills are made in its form not juz for fun, doh. the size determines the rate of it entering ur system, cutting it to bits will cause the "supposed" rate to increase, and too much drug in ur blood system at once is not good.

lingdi: not good for toddlers, coz its acidic, may cause gastric. but no problem for ppl above 12. i think you should have known this in form 5? :P
yup, 100 plus restores electrolyte. supposedly it's better to have 100 plus than water when u're having fever too.



wow...i'm giving very pharmaceutic-related infos....
