Thursday, April 15, 2010 collection..

Alhamdulillah.. all praises to The Almighty, for He is the one who allows things to be done..

I'm getting ready for my 2nd data collection, this time, 'calmly' :). the 1st one promised a lot of experiences to gain. and it really thought me a lot of things indeed. i'm really thankful that i'm not really as 'alone' as i thought i was during preparation for the sampling. preparing for the study can be really stressful, but believing that by the end of the day everything will be OK gave the strength to leap over every hurdles.

1st data collection was at KB. the nearest place to USM. a total 58 subjects turned up (min sampling was 50) (actually i was worried if to many people came, as we dont really hv enough money for honororium.. huhu)..

i'm really impressed by how helpful and supportive all those tok penggawa n penghulu2 kampung. they were the ones gathering the makcik2 for my research and even mengangkut the subjects to the sampling site (thank you!).

the morning had been hectic, so dont really hv time to snap pictures. took the pic aft finished half of the data collection. even the blood collection team hd already finished their job! huhu..

around the 1st sampling

I'm thankful that He had surrounded me with wonderful people.. gathering early in the morning during weekend, and spent the whole morning trying to be patients with the makcik2 who sometimes didnt really know how to follow the order and didnt understand what we were asking. huhu..

1 down, had two more data collection to be done.. after that can focus on my analysis.

Moga dipermudahkan.. insyaAllah..
