Mountain - Outdoor Medical First Responder Course (MOMFR) in CUCMS



Back in May,
a bunch of us climbers have signed up to be a part of the Mountain Marshals and we decided to get medically certified
 to be a part of the rescue team. In case you wanna know more about the Mountain Marshals, you can just drop me an email.

Anyways...
The course we attended was conducted in Cyberjaya University College of Medical Science (CUCMS).
Super excited about this course and we spent a week in KL.
(Don't mind the chubby face!)



We stayed in Cyberjaya area for the first 5 nights and also managed to grab a nice place via Air B&B with our friends
and the place was dope! It was such a nice place and really close to the University. It could fit about 10 people in that place.
Will tell more bout the house later on but now here are the photos of what we were up to in Uni!
(Sorry for the blurry and low quality photos because we only had our phones most of the time.)

















Learnt a lot from this course and definitely worth the sleepless nights and all that money spent on this trip!
One of the most awesome experience was knowing that now we could save lives and at least be there to assist
and manage the situation when help is needed.

During this trip,
we also made a stop over at Verticale to pay a friend a visit and also to do some shopping for some climbing equipments.
This shop is located at Gombak.





I'm in heaven!! Check out everything!
I wish I could have them all but then I would have to sell my house and car to buy everything.

Then headed over to MINISO which is my FAVOURITE place to visit everytime I go to KL.
Everything they sell in there is just too cute!

I bought this cute rabbit/cat looking neck pillow for me to use on the plane. It was only Rm15.00 if I'm not wrong.
Forgotten how much it cost but I remembered it being cheap and its so soft and fluffy!

Had yogurt and an apple for breakfast before heading out to look for Chinese breakfast.
Where we stayed, there were no chinese restaurants or coffee shops around and we were desperate.
We planned to climb in Camp 5, 1Utama after breakfast and do a little shopping there so quick stop at Sunway Pyramid first before anything else.
Its been ages since I've been to Sunway Pyramid. Gave Charlotte a ring and decided to meet up and have ramen together!


I forgot what this place is called but I know its the ramen shop located inside of Asian Avenue and it was SO GOOD! 
Roy already had breakfast but he couldn't resist himself and had some too!

Pork Char Siew Ramen (Price N/A)

Charlotte ordered the pork char siew ramen and to be honest I cant remember the actual name of this ramen but the soup was so tasty! 
Must be from all that MSG pork bone that they used to make the broth.

Roy's tiny bowl of my chicken teriyaki ramen and look how pretty it looks after I garnished it for him!
Just had to take a photo of this!

We even paid a visit to Suria KLCC and we just had to take a photo together here.
Hot and sunny day and there were people like EVERYWHERE!
REALLY PACKED!

Still manage to get a nice photo of us and we left after that.
Nothing much we could buy there because everything there was just too expensive.
(Again, don't mind the chubby face. Its the angle!)
*Denial*

Oh , remember I mentioned bout our Air B&B place?
We didn't manage to take many pictures of the house because we got too excited and forgotten.
Immediately settled down and unpacked.
We stayed for 3 nights and after we checked out, we all found out that the place we stayed in was haunted!
YES! YOU HEARD ME!
H-A-U-N-T-E-D!!

Two people in the house saw something and the other person felt like she's being watched all the time,
Roy had a weird feeling in the lower ground living room which we don't use and I was constantly disturbed in my room with doors
knocking while everyone was downstairs and my shower kept turning on by itself.

This was our room and it was a really nice room with a nice bathroom as well but the bed was just sh*t.
Like seriously THE WORST BED I HAVE EVER SLEPT ON.
I could feel every single spring piercing through that bed and I'm glad we only stayed for 3 nights
and we were out of that place for good!

Also, the bathroom was so nice but the only problem was the shower.
The water pressure was just sad. JUST SAD!
The amount of pressure was like a drizzling rain. Not your regular rain, not heavy rain but a drizzle/sprinkler.
HOW.DID.I.SURVIVE.TAKING.A.SHOWER.THERE.FOR.DAYS!!

Our very awesome living room that has a beautiful porch!
Very bright and airy place and it was really comfortable just chilling in the living room.

Our place was a semi-detached house with 2 living rooms, a dining room, a kitchen, a porch, 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
We booked the whole place for RM 769.00 for 3 nights and split among 6 people which means it only cost RM 128.00 per person.
How cheap is that!

Group study at night and I won't forget how stressed out I was during that time.
I was so scared I would fail and also being me, I always have trouble sleeping at night if i'm staying in a new place with a new environment.

Also not forgetting that I paid a visit to Summit USJ Mall to visit my all time favourite shop, Fabric Fanatics.
Met up with Kelly, the owner of Fabric Fanatics and she was so full of energy! Very friendly and very down-to-earth. A very independent woman who started this business which initially started out as just a part time hobby on Etsy now a successful business that sells varieties of stuff you need for crafting, sewing, DIY-ing... you name it! So inspirational!

I have been shopping with Fabric Fanatics since the first year of online/ blogshopping started and also when she first started off her business online.
I stumbled across her online shop I think back in 2009 via a shopping directory called Shopping Roll which has stopped publishing for years now.

Anyways, I also stumbled across Family Mart which I have been dying to visit.
Its a Japanese convenience store and I heard they serve really good Matcha Ice Cream and also tidbits.
I tried their ice cream and it was really good! Not too sweet and I love how creamy it was. Definitely getting it again when I head back to KL.


I also picked up some onigiris to try out and its pretty good but just that the filling inside was just TOO LITTLE. 
Like it only had 1 chunk of meat which was almost close to no-meat-at-all size and the rest was all sauce. 
That was it. Not happy bout that but the ice cream was good!

Managed to make a quick stop at the famous Kamal Medical Book Supplies to check out some stethoscopes. 
I'm still deciding which colour to get because these were all too pretty to choose from. 


At the end of the day, 
I'm just happy to say I'm a qualified Outdoor Medical First Responder and I can't wait to make KK a better place.
Hoping to see Mountain Marshals grow and help make KK a safer place especially for those up in Mount Kinabalu.
