ada orang ingatkan aku
hidup ni bukan hanya ada gembira saje
bukan hanya perlu seronok
perlu enjoy setiap saat
kesedihan itu perlu
untuk reflect balik diri kita
untuk ingatkan dimana silapnya kita
untuk sedarkan kita
yg hidup ini bukan selalunya indah
bukan selamanya di atas atau di bawah
semuanya berlaku
untuk mencorakkan warna atas kanvas kehidupan kita
dan semestinya
ada hikmah di sebalik kejadian~
oleh itu,
ingatlah wahai teman
sukaria ada had nya
orang tua tua kata
jangan gelak banyak2
nanti nanges melolong lolong :P

Ilam Village
University of Canterbury
it is true
this is my family here
when my original nucleus family is far far far away in Malaysia
the same night
the same day
anything can happen
and it's just happen
without you realize how precious the time is
being with lovely friends around you
making lots of fun!
I'm not exaggerating
living and studying abroad offers so many things in life
that I dont want to waste it
embrace it while it's there
one inevitably sees the friendship
often more appreciative♥
to every-each-one of my familia,
hope our friendship will never end
thanx for being there when our family is so apart
all the best in finals~
i wish you all success in flying colours
may ALLAH bless us
P/s: gmbar Nia besar cuz dia yg buat so faham2 la

it was a very big day folks
got one finale test of Communication Disorder
and I'm not doing well
I kept changing my answer
and lots of it
I'm just guessing
and what I regret was
the last question
I know I should thrust my instinct but last minute I decided to change
without on purpose
sad sad sad
because when I checked, my first answer was correct!
Moral of the story: thrust your heart♥ thrust your instinct☻learnt the lesson!

Special thanks to Kak Syah (Master student in Speech Language Therapy)
for helping me understanding the so-confuse-to-pinpoint-the-so-called audiogram!

First, an audiometer is used to test a person's hearing.

Here is an example of a legend from an audiogram. This will help me decipher the results.

Types of Losses
Sometimes the audiologist will want to test how the person's inner ear is working with a bone conduction test. This test helps to determine if the person has a conductive, a sensorineural, or a mixed loss.

Here below are some examples of different types of losses as shown on the audiogram:

Here is an example of a sensorineural loss. Note how the bone conduction is the same as the air conduction results
Here is an example of a conductive loss. Note how with air conduction the person has a hearing loss. However, the bone conduction results show that the sensorineural pathways are in good working order.
Here is an example of a mixed loss. Both bone conduction and the air conduction show a loss, but the bone conduction loss is not as great as the air conduction loss.

The Speech Banana

The picture symbols represent the different sounds at that particular frequency and decibel level. For example, leaves rustling is very quiet (about 5 dB) and slightly-higher pitched (2000 Hz). However, a semi truck is very loud (100 dB) and lower-pitched (125 Hz).In the middle across the frequency range are the speech sounds. They call this the "Speech Banana" because, as you can see, it looks like a banana when you draw a line around them,

The reason why the speech banana is so important to be aware of is because this, in addition to the audiogram, will give you even more specific insight into what the child can and cannot hear.

For those children who are profoundly deaf or who are moderate-to-severe in their hearing loss, they will probably not be able to hear any of those sounds of speech unaided. (They might have a hearing loss that is good in some frequencies and not in others.)

For children who have a mild to moderate hearing loss, they probably will be able to hear some sounds of speech and not others unaided. Take a look at their audiogram as well and think about what they are missing.

prepare yourself for a shock

Hi dear,

I know it is the onset of the winter.

And I'm way off from tiArA's life way too long.

Everything happens for a reason.

But i know my 'apologia' of tests and assignments in 5 weeks in a row before study week are not acceptable.

Here comes.

Prepare yourself for a shock.

I have this problem in differentiating those chromosomal syndrome

and genetic syndrome(basically with their phenotype and communication).

I'm preparing for next friday communication disorder test.

And what I think is..

post it on the tiArA's life will be nice to help me differentiating and memorizing them~

Help me get through.

Let's do it together ok?

Chromosomal Syndrome

1. Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21)


  • Intelectual Disability

  • Heart Anomalies

  • Dry Skin and Soft Hair

  • Hypotonia (low muscle tone)

  • Protruding tongue (due to hypotonia)

  • Brachycephaly

  • Malocclusion


  • General Language Delay

  • Speech Misarticulation

  • Normal Hearing

2. Cri DU Chat Syndrome


  • Small size of baby

  • Microcephaly

  • High Palate (maybe Cleft Palate)

  • Mental Disability

  • Normal life expectancy

  • Chronic Otitis Media

  • Hypertolerism(space between eyes)

  • Ptosis(epicanthic fold is not well developed)

  • Delayed Motor Development


  • Oral speech seldom develops

  • Severe language disorder

  • Possible hypernasality

  • Possible hearing loss

  • Tend to be loving and very social

Genetic Syndrome

1. Cruozon Syndrome


  • Premature fusion of cranial sutures

  • Midface hypoplasia(underdeveloped)

  • Beak-shaped nose

  • Exorbitism(bulging eyes)

  • Low-set ears

  • Class 3 malocclusion

  • Mental disability is rare

  • Possible Otitis Media


  • Normal onset of speech and language

  • Possible Otitis Media leading to hearing loss

  • Hyponasility(due to small nasal port)

  • Articulation disorder resulting from Class 3 Malocclusion

2. Foetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS)


  • Below height and weight

  • Thin upper lips

  • No philtrum

  • Short, upturned nose

  • Shortened (and bent) little finger

  • Hyperactivity

  • Cognitive Impairment

  • Poor fine, gross motor coordination

  • Microcephaly(small head)

  • Micrognatia(small jaw)


  • General delay in communication development

  • Articulation problem due to poor motor coordination

  • Language delay due to possible intelectual impairments

  • Possible swallowing difficulties

  • Possible Otitis Media

Okay folks. Finish already.

I think I'm feeling much better. Thanks a lot,
