it's never too late to go to med school. although it may not be what you had envisioned but it's still an open option for many people. it usually becomes a very fulfilling career for mature candidates...


I thought of that too, although after awhile I don't really want to become a doctor, but seems that all the actions come with being a nurse instead, or being an EMT.

I think NUH has those Bachelor of Nursing thing, and I've been looking at the courses, but they're just so darn expensive...I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to get scholarships, or part-time nursing job while doing the nursing degree that can help pay the uni bills...


what's your nationality?

Indonesian

I recall that the entire course at one of the colleges costs somewhere around $30k or something...trying to figure out how to get that kind of money to pay the course and also live just like how I am today (but maybe lesser)
My thread...The Weekenders If you need my e-mail address, it's in the first post of the thread.

Funny that in London I had this really old boy neighbour 87 years old, he was a very well respected Islamic scholar, a real eloquent gent with a bow tie, always impeccably dressed.

Just before he died he pulled me over wanting to give me some advice, I thought here is a man that would give Gandhi and the Dalai Lama a run for their money, I braced myself much like Mary when Gabriel first appeared.

The holy grail answer to life was? He wished he F*cked more women when he was able and told me never to end up like him. LOL I nearly fell off my seat the crudeness and simplicity was so unexpected, hilarious and kind of sad.


I died LOL-ing at this.

i'm not entirely sure how non-SC/PRs can land a scholarship but i'll ask around (plenty from PRC that were schooled here).

perhaps ecure might be able to shed some light...

Lots of Thai men have that problem, Hannie. Or so I've been told. The women up there are really fond of giving their wayward husbands a Bobbitt.

Not surprised. I have a few Thai female friends who I no doubt fit that perfectly. On changes her WhatsApp status 1-3 times a week, and I swear it alternates between "I Love you Forever" to "F*cking hate you and hope you die". Intended for her ang moh boyfriend, who I have no doubt is practicing the wise Imam's advice. :D
