Lucky change~

i had a great potential call on the 30th of August~ technically it looked set to be a great call~ Half day off on Merdeka day , passive female call~ should be no prob~ i mean how many admissions can there be a day before the hols~ even if i were sick i'd just try and chill over the hols first~

Unfortunately or fortunately i was unable to keep the call as my major modes of transport mainly MM (on leave) and JH (on call on the 29th) were not able to to fetch me back and to the hospital. Even Kok Lim was on-call~ so i tot nvm i'll take the cabs~

JH however had other plans~ he urged me to change my call to the 29th~ i tried the night before 29th to no avail~ then on the day itself (29th.. is this confusing?) 2 ppl offered to change their call with me~ a 3rd call and a 4th call~ i was as usual undecided~ cos i do want to keep the potentially good call~ but since i had brought all my toiletries and clothes~just in case i couldn't get a cab and had to bunk in the hospital~ and since JH was really urging me to change the call i did~ and thank God for that.

My 3rd call tht night was relatively chill with the occasional blood taking, line setting, hypoK and hyperK corrections, CBD blockage and one collapse at 4am~ even then the MO did the majority of the CPR~ And staff nurse Lee was such a gem~ she helped me take the dengue blood, set a line, review the potassium results for the 2 patients which i did correction for and informed me via the phone so i don't have to go over~she even help me take the blood post correction and post fluid challenge~ OMG she is such a gem~ the other staff nurses in the ward seemed to have been influenced by her a little bit as they too started helping me review and inform me of the results~ Bliss~

I had interrupted sleep but at least i slept and the interruptions were much less than usual~

Now this morning my friend Vijay who took my 4th call woke up late and related what a dreadful call he had! up to 4 female collapses 2-3 of them resuscitated by him and 2 peritoneal dialysis~ Gosh i feel so bad~ Thnk God the ward was relatively empty and by 10am we had finished all the work with the rounds completed~

Guess i have to really thank JH for his inadvertent far-sightedness~

I'm beginning to feel jaded with the mundane ritualistic thing called work~even a first call is like a chore to me now when it was once an adrenaline pumping night~ i remember lying in the on-call room with palpitations. Now i can have a peaceful rest even if for a short time~ the call last night was normal still hectic but manageable. managed to squeeze in 3 hours of sleep~ haha

Cant wait for a break which will be this Friday~ managed to get 3 days leave so will prob go to KL and visit JH's parents and do some shopping~muahahahaha~ then next month planning to get a longer leave to go back to JB and belanja my family~ hahaha already I've been getting requests for sharks's fin soup (who else but Ben).Haha miss my lovely family so much`

I've become sort of a mag freak lately~ found this shop in Ipoh Parade called Novel Hut which sells outdated albeit first hand mags for a fraction of the price. So for 11 bucks a get 3 imported mags~ how sweet is tht? The usual suspects are New Idea, Woman's Day, teen Vogue and Glomour~ i dont mind the datedness cos i get all my latest goss from the 8 Days my mom sends oh so regularly~ I am so reading~ cept i'm not reading what i ought to be reading~

Am so karated now~ I'm out of 8C aka 1st class ward~ and yes i'm beginning to miss it~ despite my initial horror cum disgust and resistance of going to first class i am so missing it now~ I'm in 8B which is a pretty fair female ward with good colleagues one of them the HO captain i always swear at when i'm in my moods~ who is actually pretty decent~ hehe~ i always regret the negative comments i send out~

So my life is still the same cept I'm richer and busier and more prone to infection and what nots~

At least i still have time to go catch movies like the much anticipated SECRET!! Oh my Jay Chou!! Definitely did not let all his fans down~ i would actually have been happy with just a predictable sickly sweet romantic film as long as he is in it in school uniform~ i wasn't expecting much to tell you the truth and i made sure i pre-warned JH that it might be severely boring for him but i think he actually enjoyed it too~ at least he didn't doze off la.

As you can see it's a very romantic movie~

Movie poster for those who don't know the existence of this movie~ I've encountered a few~

Okie decidedly the lead actress is not as conventionally pretty as the supporting actress~ However she definitely acts better and has the type of interesting features tht will make u remember her face. Plus she looks different from different angles~ I've seen her in a few really depressing Taiwanese music videos so its no surprise she is cast as the girl with the secret one that can conveniently make her cry therefore showing off her turn on the taps skill.Perfect! Plus not so pretty girls everywhere will be rejoicing and rooting for her over the prettier popular girl. Jay is a genius in casting the anti-hero. Plus there probably won't be any pesky rumours that they are together cos she's not pretty enough!. Muahaha stroke of genius again. Plus cos she's not very well known they don't have to pay her so much. Thts what i think la~ And it helps that the prettier supporting actress can't really act. And i don't think its pure coincidence that the script calls for him to kiss the prettier girl on the lips and the love of his life just gets~what~ a peck on the cheeks~

pretty supporting lead~ whom i have no idea what she's called

lots of great piano parts in the movie~ i think Janet will love this

And just to up the sweet 'awww' factor he goes and brings his mom and grandma to the movie premier~

Seriously clever la

and cute uniforms to boot~

Sad pensive moments~ laughter +romance+gloom= box-office hit

Plus there is a secret to be unveiled in the end~

Unfortunately i have a smart ass bf who nearly spoilt the whole movie for me by pointing out the 'secret' during the first 10 mins of the show~ thank God he got it wrong~ but it was close.

Do go see this movie and tell me what u think of it~

Kaka happy post-call days~

Blardy shit

After the initial happiness of me settling into ward 7A with great MO's ,Specialist and housemen I had to move to another ward cos no one wanted to go! Argh ok i have no choice but to go~

So today i stepped with trepidation into the first class ward not knowing what to expect~ blood taking went well and the reviewing was easy but i cant seem to remember all 13 of the cases leaving me with scanty memory of each of the cases as compared to the 6 cases i manage in 7A~ okie i'm missing 7A now~

The worst thing was i only got to leave work at 2pm when everyone else could get off at 11~~ at the very latest 12~ shits ~ cos 8C patienta are stable and not a priority leaving it one of the last wards to be reviewed~ Grr so i stayed there waiting while my so called partner covering CCU and 8C together went back first~

Grrr~ i'm expecting worst things to come

Pls pray for me these 2 weeks while i'm there~

bleks~ this sucks~
