First Time Encounter Bone Fracture

Yesterday was a day that I will never forget. I fell in the bathroom room and landed on my elbow. Within a second, I thought it's just a fall that I can just stand up with no major injury but I was wrong. I couldn't push myself up because I couldn't feel my arm.
When I look at my left arm, I saw a bump at my elbow and I realise this is serious. My wife rushed in and checking on me. She was so shocked and panic.
Thanks to my elbow, head didn't knock on the floor as I was going down with high momentum. Immediately my wife sent me to Prince Court emergency ward for x-ray. The doctor put up a cast on my left arm to support my elbow and send me home.
The good news, no broken ligament or dislocation. Bad news, a piece of the bone at my elbow felt off and a fracture sighted. So now, I will have to visit to a micro surgery specialist, Dr. Palani tomorrow. Seems like his appointments were full every week - so many patients.
This is my bad luck but I think the consolation is that the fall didn't cause injury to my head or face. Now when reflecting on the fall, it is really an accident that nobody can tell what's coming next. It reminds me of the movie "Final Destination".

Updated: 5th December 2015
Visited Dr. Palani at his hand clinic in Gleneagles Hospital. According to the nurse, the clinic is closed on Saturday but due to my emergency case, they are open today. I am so glad.

After another X-ray, Dr. Palani advise me to put on a conservative cast for 4 weeks. After 2 weeks will have to return for check up. No surgery needed as the fractures seems able to recover if my hand posture remain in 90 degree. This will allow the muscle to push the fractures closer to my elbow to reconnect again.

With such incident, I think I am still very lucky for not suffering for more serious injury on my arm, leg and most important, my head. Anyhow, I have to cancel my holidays plan this December. It will be a stay at home for recovery Xmas this year... 

Updated: 21st December 2015
I went for another round of X-Ray and consulted the doctor again. Dr Palani said I have a good recovery and the fracture seems to be healing. Even the broken piece of bone is now attached back on my elbow. So, no surgery needed! However, I still have to use the cast for another 3 weeks in order to strengthen the bone before I can begin physiotherapy. According to doctor, the physio later will be an aggressive therapy because the muscle could be hardening in this 90 degree arm position. I can sense the pain now, not from the bone but the pulling from the muscle. Got to start moving a little bit by bit before the unimaginable 'aggressive' physiotherapy.

Seoul Bakery - An Authentic Korean Restaurant in London

I miss the bibimbap, kimchi, japchae and gimbap from a 'very' small restaurant in Soho, London. This place serving nice authentic Korean food with reasonable price. I think it is quite famous as there are many guests and some celebrities who left notes in this restaurant. Also, you have to always queue before you can get a taste of their food.
The restaurant only occupy half of the shop. So, imagine how small is the dinning space.
Lots of fans here.
Some Super Junior members were here!
So, it you are interested to try Korean food in London, go check out this place at 55 St. Giles High Street, Soho, London WC2H 8LH. It is a few steps away from the Tottenham Court Road Underground station.

My previous visits was in year 2013. I look forward to dine here again, very soon....

Grapes Don't Look Like Grapes

I was offered by my colleague to try out these grapes. What?! Grapes? The shape of it don't look like a normal grape. To me, a grape is a fruiting berry that is round. These oblong shaped grapes looks...hmm, mutated? Or perhaps I am just too ignorance.

Kalau Adik Panas, Abang Man Boleh Sejukkan - by Walls Malaysia

While I was browsing for TED Talks on YouTube today, this particular advertisement caught my attention. It is a very localised campaign which take advantage of the weather in Malaysia to promote Walls ice-cream.

Watch it yourself here:

I think it is a well thought advertisement with humour and surprising plots. Good job!
