where is the love

10 Dec

An uncle walked in confused with all his hpt,ihd and diabetes medications. He didnt know what was for what. After explaining to him and labelling his meds in kickasss huge handwriting and how to take them, the uncle suddenly told me, ‘sejak makan ubat ini semua, pakcik tak ada tenaga’.

i wondered for awhile what could he possibly mean. I did not know how to ask if its sexual dysfunction delicately.Cos it could be due to his beta-blocker.  So i asked him if its lethargy. He said no.’pakcik tak ada tenaga batin, waktu malam tu lah. tenaga itu la. bila makcik nak bermanja dan bergurau, pakcik tak ada mood, tak cukup tenaga.’

And he was too embarassed to tell the doc. Cos shes a chinese lady. For a moment i thought, huh, am i not one? Minus the doc part. That aside, the pakcik broke down and cried. In front of me.

‘ Saya tak mau makcik salah faham pakcik tak sayang dia lagi. Kamu faham kan, orang tua juga mesti ada kasih sayang. Pakcik sayang makcik, tapi tak cukup tenaga batin. Dulu pakcik askar, memang kuat. Sekarang pakcik malulah.Ini sakit, itu sakit. Bila pakcik malu, pakcik keluar dengan kawan kawan. Takut nanti makcik pula salah faham pakcik berfoya. Cik fahamkan, perempuan memang lebih sensitif.’

He was telling me all these between sobs.

I talked to him a little while sumore and gave him a few options to overcome his probs.

He felt much better when he left the counselling room.

I made a conclusion, his wife is one lucky woman to have a man who still loves her so much at this age. And undertands so perfectly how a woman is like. Envious gila

one month

14 Oct

Today officially marked ONE month i worked in Kangar. I lost track of time till my sister reminded me of my misery haha.

The pros of working in a less busy hospital; u work less compared to others. But mind you, we have our busy days. Just that we are not consistently busy..

The cons; I have 2 researches to complete INDIVIDUALLY. and all the prp requirements were increased. And i know ive complained to MANY ppl. Thanks KK for being as semangat as always helping me think of my title even though it has nth to do with u:)

Given a choice, i would rather work like a dog. period.

say hi to nightlife again

19 Sep

So i’ve survived my first week in Kangar. My orientation week. All alone. Minus the first few days you were here to help me adjust. I can never be more thankful:)  Made new friends and thank god the seniors were nice. And also those pembantu farmasi who were never tired layaning my questions. They seemed to hav the coordinates of the meds imprinted in their head. They can  point to the EXACT drawer of any drug i ask them. Been doing filling and labelling and wee bit of extemporaneous dispensing the whole week. And assisting a senior with Dangerous Drugs (DD). Gosh all those protocols reminded me so much of PP3.I’ve only worked for 4 days and it felt like years already. Gotta learn cos i will be stationed in OPD for the next 2 months. Thought i would be thrown to manufacturing like another collegue. Can goyang kaki ma. hehe.I hope tuesday doesnt come so soon sigh. Still, ive got to count my blessings that home is just 2 hours away and work is only 5 mins frm where i live.

9 Sep

Whilst some of my frens were slaving away in hosps on 9.09am 090909, i was in klinik kesihatan getting the final part of my medical examination done. Yea, what an auspicious way to celebrate a day like this. I actually forgot the date till i noticed the hype in fb n msn. But no biggie lah.

In denial trying to lose count of dates cos the day im suppose to report in Kangar is drawing nearer. Hate the thought of readapting to another new foreign place. When will I stop being a nomad?

17 Aug

sorry for the long hiatus. last 2 weeks i was in pg island cos my outstation frens came over. then went to hong kong for a week. the weather was so humid can die ok. but the desserts were just too awesome for words.i’ll be leaving to kl tmr for my convo.gosh i felt like ive not rested enough. Pls i hope i wont get my posting so soon i need to laze summore.
