Last day of the 2010's 1st quarter

Hari ni ialah hari terakhir dalam bulan March, jugak hari terakhir dlm suku pertama tahun ini.
Lets look back what I've achieved so far.

Health: I'm glad that I'm working on this more than what I have done in the past 2 years. Also glad that hubby is joining me more in terms of exercise & eating healthy. Dalam hal tido plak, my sleeping pattern is always random, simply coz I'm back in ED. In Jan, was still working in Psych, therefore tido sentiasa regular even tho tak semestinye cukup. Now walaupon random, aku akan cuba utk dapatkan tidor yg cukup. Hubby plak lagi suka ngadap comp dia daripada tido awal/cukup.
Oh ye, aku harap aku lebih tahan dgn extreme weather e.g. panas terik/ sejuk terlampau this year.

Beauty: this is an ever going journey. Beberapa alatan yg aku tambah dlm rutin harian/kuar jalan: primers, foundation brush, new blusher, new eye colours, new foundations, re-stocking lip colours. Walaupon aku tak guna semuanye setiap kali nak gi kerja/ keluar, tapi I just realized that these things are important in different occasions. Seronok dpt main2 make ups. In the skin care department, I have started using my new sets of Skin Food products yg dpt hari tu. Best sangat. Jerawats seem to tame down a little bit & I'm happy. Tak sabar nak balik M'sia to borong lagi. My aim next will be some BB Cream from Korea, including from Skin Food tapi Skin Food punye kena tunggu balik M'sia baru bleh borong. Tapi otherwise, bleh cuba singgah this Korean beauty store kat Box Hill Centro bila ada masa. Lama dah nak singgah, tapi slalu aku gi melencong ke pasar coz terlebih excited tengok makanan segar yg banyak2 kat sana.

Work: I'm happier with my work if to compare with working on the ward before this rotation. Walaupon random hours, random stuff seen at work, tapi aku suka & I think I'm ready to embark on a journey of an ED trainee. I kno this is one of the hardest specialties in medicine, tapi aku suka. Banyak je menda menyakitkan hati kadang2, tapi bila fikirkan aku tak sanggup hidup dgn the bloody pager, clinics, monotonous jobs & lack of variety, on-calls, ward jobs, nurses on the ward, busy life, continuous care + follow ups, high medical indemnity, etc. aku lagi sanggup kerja kat ED & happy. Aku pon lebih byk study during my days off if to compare with last year, walaupon kadang2 aku suka buat rounds on the net than study. Just in case nak amik exam this year or March next year. Tapi at the same time, I wanna keep my choices open, coz aku still minat physics + maths + stuff, terasa cam minat nak amik radiology or study aeronautical or yg sekaum dgnnye, or amik medical admin. Wah, macam2 aku minat. Some people say that this is the beauty of doing ED; I can do locum, I can study, I can do business, I can work in some other areas, at the same time I still haf my life with my family.

Social: I've noticed it has kinda slowed down a little bit since I started ED, tapi byk jugak jumpa member2 docs mostly utk study group. Also slowing down coz aku byk off during weekdays if to compare with last rotation, so kurang kuar jumpa member2 dan jugak dgn hubby. Tapi during weekdays aku byk study & selesaikan hal2 bookkeeping ni. All in all, I'm just glad that I'm in Melbourne, rather than in the Whoop Whoop.

For the next quarter (April-June):
- Azam: study lebih sket, tingkatkan senaman/healthy food/rehat yg cukup/fikiran yg tenang bukan je utk kesihatan tapi jugak utk kulit aku :D, hidup lebih teratur & tak nak malas :D Autumn is leading up to winter, so aku kena lebih berhati2 coz every single year this kinda weather doesnt agree with me much & I hate being sick.
- Kena ingat utk change the time setting coz weekends ni daylight saving abis. Yeah, while the rest of the world dah start diorangnyer daylight saving/abis end of last week, Victoria has to be different than the rest of the world.. apa kejadah.

Ni dah hari ke-3 aku cuti from work coz of kurang sehat, kadang2 rindu gak nak gi kerja. Dah hari ke-3 jugak aku kurang study coz takleh nak pay attention to study. Made a few fon calls inquiring about my fon + kereta. Harap2 thse settle soon. Dah sakit dah otak aku asik fikir pasal diorang ni.

Oh well, esok kena gi kerja lah. In the meantime kena la sambung study. Esok2 bila ada masa aku citer pasal last week's stuff.

Kenduri kahwin Dr. SMC & Encik GG

Waaahhhh... lama betul aku tak menulis sini.
Dah lama tak kerja pagi then sepanjang minggu yg baru lepas ni kerja pagi.. waduh, mencabar jugak pagi2 tu nak bangun. Malam plak tido awaaal gila, around 10 dah terlelap (but I kept on waking up every 2 hrs, mostly coz the very loud music next to my ears and agaknye pasal risau tak bangun siang nanti kot). Also I've noticed that the roads have become much busier than last time I remember. Punye la lama tak face the morning traffic. Skali pegi terkujat aku. Kena gerak lebih awal la nampaknye.

Semalam dari just afta lunch saaampaaai la tgh malam spent time in da city for Dr. SMC's wedding & reception. Letih. Interesting day I would say.
Aku pergi dgn perasaan 50-50; suka sebab a good fren was getting married to a guy who obviously makes her happy & jugak jumpa member2 uni lama yg best2; tak suka pasal ada jugak those crowd yg jumpa masa bday dinner Dr. SMC dulu yg manusia2 hampas tu. The wedding ceremony simple je, aku tak pernah tgk wedding omputih ni depan mata sendiri. Her wedding gown was very pretty. Aku just pakai baju kebaya yg buat last yr, sesuai dgn theme red & gold. Kain aku tak tau size zaman bila, tapi ketat sangat! Dah rasa ketat masa baru buat last yr, tu la padahnye buat baju kasi baju contoh size zaman umur 15thn. Heheheheeh.. Apa nak buat, tahan je la.. dah nasib.
Then reception kat Dragon Boat Seafood Restaurant kat the Crowne Plaza. Dr. SMC yg baik hati dah order vegetarian food utk kami, tapi kami dpt jugak merasa those other seafood stuff coz yg menghidang tu just hidang everything in batches of 10.. duck, suckling pigs, chicken, alcohol etc kami serahkan kepada yg lain. Penuh gila perut halfway thru, kain pon bertambah2 ketat. Hubby dok sebelah mamat senget Dr. KS yg kini jadi Radiology Registrar, & sebelah Dr.KS ialah Encik J iaitu bf kepada Dr. NY. Aku plak dok sebelah hubby of course, tapi sebelah sini ialah Dr. RH, famous for his clown act masa kat uni dulu. I'm glad Dr. SMC thought of arranging the table like that. Kami dok semeja jugak dgn 1 doc yg hari tu kat bday dinner yg sombong nak mati tu. The rest were Dr. Ad. yg dtg dgn his chinese gf; mamat ni yg sudah tersesat sket :P dok makan & minum dgn selamba saja depan kami.. menyakitkan mata! Also Dr. T, Dr. VN, Dr. Shv dgn bakal bini Dr. Shm. Dr. NY & Dr. RN jadi bridesmaid so diorang dok meja besar kat depan sana.

All in all majlis sangat meriah, walaupon sedikit dragging dlm ucapan2 sumer tu. Kami kasi angpau masa mula2 daftar nama, tapi aaaiisshhh, diorang tulis nama plak. Segan la aku, coz knowing a chinese wedding its like a tradition kasi large $$$ in the red packet for the newly weds, while kami yg miskin ni kasi yg mampu je.

Oh ye, kebetulan majlis kahwin Dr. SMC ni coincident dgn F1 Melbourne kat Albert Park sana. Walaupon jauh berbatu-batu, bleh dgr dgn jelas bunyi ngeng ngeng kereta F1 sana. Lepas majlis taman ni abis plak ada kapal terbang perang yg berlegar-legar buat pertunjukan flip flop kat ruang udara Melbourne, hubby kata tu biasa bila time F1. Kami nampak dari taman Royal Botanical Garden ni & bunyi nye sangaatla kuat. Terasa cam kat medan perang plak.
Di malam harinye plak coincident dgn Global Earth Hour. Aku bleh nampak from the restaurant that most of Melbourne jadi gelap gelita, kecuali kami.... Hmmm... I wish I could join them, tapi takpe la.. berkorban...

The newlyweds
The groom buat stunt depan bini; lompat bang, lompat :P
Hujan renyai-renyai, kami dok lepak kat luar the Crown Casino
sementara tunggu reception nak start,
Tempatnye pon seberang jalan sana je kat the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Note dlm 2-2 gambar di bwh takde satu pon gambar
either the Crown Casino or the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
(Nama yg slalu org confused yg mana satu.. ada 2!)
Helicopter yg kasi service amik gambar sekeliling Melbourne..
teringinnye.. tapi sure ratus$$$ kalau tak ribu$$$$
Restoran ni la tpt reception tu.
Sepanjang malam tangan lenguh makan dgn chopsticks,
so sebagai mengenang jasa chopsticks ni, amik la jugak gambar.
Note tangan bulu2 Dr. RH.
Dalam bungkusan tu ada 2 biji choc Lindt yg bungkusan merah.
Dr. RH cakap significantnye rupa bungkusan choc tu cam double happiness gitu.
Kira cam kita nyer tradisi jugak.. kasi bunga telur kat tetamu.
Setiap satu bungkusan ada nama setiap tetamu,
yg ni aku saja ikat bubuh nama kami..
Red velvet cupcake yg aku & Dr. SMC dok cari merata-rata Melbourne
before majlis dia. Notice tak gegaran coz aku paksa sumer org
stop makan coz aku nak amik gambar.
Ni la gambar dekat cupcakes amik pagi ni sebelum selamat masuk perut.
Semalam tak dpt amik coz camera's battery abis.
This is hubby's.. aku ngap separuh coz gula icing dia saaangaaat sedap.
Notice tak habuk2 kat gula tu, coz smlm tak sempat amik kotak,
main redah je from the restaurant to the carpark.
This is mine. Notice tak rekahan gula icing atas tu?
Susah tol nak thn nafsu masa amik gambar ni.

Hari ni gi beli halal meat kat Dandenong, sambil2 beli barang-barang dapur yg dah hampir kosong tu. We went there late, so banyak sayur2 dah abis.. cuma dpt sambar kankong & buah pear je. Apples banyak, and aku hanyalah lalu cepat2 melepasi area apples, macam la apples tu beracun sgt kalau singgah tengok2 bleh pengsan. Hehehe... takpe, lusa aku gi beli sayur kat Box Hill, sure banyak. Lalu sebelah Dandenong Market.. waaahhh dah baru dah. Nanti next time bila dah siap betul kena singgah ni.

Today tak buat apa pun. Letih sangat from semalam & seminggu kerja pagi ni tak abis lagi. Tua dah kot tu la pasal asik letih je. Dah abis gosok baju kerja for a week's worth, so did hubby.
Ni aku patutnye tido ni, minggu ni kerja pagi. Nite.

Berilah daku Sympathy =P

What a disaster night last night.
I suppose it has been since Tuesday, since the new paperless system implemented in ED. I wasted 1st hour masa sampai ED last night trying to log on to the system (yay!heheheh). So did some other night ED docs. To cut things short, ED has also been on bypass every single day since Tuesday.. ehhehehehe.. and so did last night. And the system was down for a good 2-3hours making the whole ED paralysed! Sampai one of the ED consultants terpaksa datang overnight to help out. Ye la.. ada patient dah tunggu for up to 8hours & ramai yg left ED coz lama sgt tunggu, and patients only being seen 4 in 4hours.. gila lambat! Kesian.. lots of phone calls to the head of department, bed coordinator, IT on call, etc. Nama system ni Symphony, bila dah jam cam tu the coordinator cakap.. "okay guys, lets get back to Sympahty" Hahahhaha. We had to go back on paper for 3hours then.. tetiba system back on the roll and kami terpaksa transfer all the bloody notes back into the system.. benci betul! Buang masa. Berterabur.
Oh well, I kinda like the system and awal2 ni biasa la berterabur sket. I guess once its running well semua akan jadi smooth.

Okay, ni nak review my new kasut that I bought tiba-tiba hari tu, ingat tak?
Ni dia.
Selesa gilaaaa.. sedap je pakai. Kinda my first ever heels gi kerja. Hahahha.. I wouldnt have thought that heels akan feel that selesa. My pants fell nicely onto my shoes & rasa cam best. Yang penting even tho aku nampak tinggi gila, still aku terasa normal coz org Aussie ramai yg tinggi-tinggi. Kalau kat M'sia sure aku tension gila coz ada mata mata kureng ajar yg akan usha aku mengejek aku ni gergasi sangat. Some nurses noticed aku pakai kasut baru.. diorang kata, "tu diaaa.. tup tap tup tap.. mesti kasut baru tu.." in English la kan.
Sambil jalan2 in ED enjoying my new shoes, aku terfikir gak.. terasa cam nak belikan mak kasut ni utk dia gi kerja. Hmm.. kena tunggu dia balik nak tanya size, style sumer kan.
Rindu mak, abah & adik2.

Pagi tadi balik kerja gi amik hubby then breakie kat The Tea Leaf & Coffee Bean. Had salmon hollandaise & hash browns & pomegranate+blueberry tea. Best. Bahagia je rasa dgn cahaya matahari & angin sepoi2 bahasa. Nanti aku boh gambar sini. (Aarrghh.. rugi kena tido siang di hari yg indah ini)

Hmm.. aku patut gi siap2 nak gi kerja ni. Semangat kasut baru.. (tak tau la nak pakai lagi ke tak kasut baru mlm ni coz pagi tadi my feet cramping gila susah nak tido.. tu la rasanye pakai heels gi kerja.. seb baik tak kena ischaemic feet).

Apa kejadahnye.. kkekekekekeke...

Apa kejadah bangun-bagun je terus gi melapak kat shopping complex. Dah la bangun pon tengah hari. Member call suruh bangun sebab nak buat study group pon gi tido balik. Buruk tul prangai. Dah tu kat shopping complex dok rayau2 buat tawaf 7-8 rounds, sambil2 buang duit. Hehehhehehe.. Cam remaja takde wawasan hidup je rasa hidup aku hari ni.

Ni saja je tulis blog sambil member sebelah ni tengok2 pasal VT & VF. Aku pon patutnye join skali. Hehehehe.. Jap lagi aku sambung apa jadi hari ni. Memang best... bagi aku la.
Ciao.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Back.
1. Okay, mula2 sampai kat Chaddy I had no idea where to go or what to buy. My original intention was to actually get some milk & sayur2, konon-konon nak masak mee rebus. Dah 2,3 hari dah asik teringin je, now dah datang seru nak masak so baik get everything kan. Its the VIP night today, meaning special offers & shows around until midnight. Tapi manusia dah start penuh dah, baik aku cepat-cepat do all my errands sebelum aku tersesak nafas coz ramai org.

2. Terus je jalan ke hujung belah sana, tanpa tujuan. Lepas beli sour plum bubble tea (my favourite), patah balik hujung sini konon-konon nak tengok interactive information board, konon-konon tersesat. Lama aku dok usha board tu click sana-sini cari idea nak gi mana. Last last ended up cari Body Shop. Oh, di hujung sana. Jalan lagi ke hujung sana. Nak tau apa aku sambar? Ni dia... some more brushes for my make ups :P Suka coz sumernye synthetic bristles so takde la ragu-ragu lagi. Batangnye besar-besar, sedap di pegang :))
3. Disebabkan kedai Body Shop tu menghala ke arah sana, maka aku teruskan lagi. Dan 'ter'singgah ke kedai ni & 'ter'sambar sepasang kasut kerja yg baru, well, some of my old kasut kerja dah kopak.. ntah ngapa taste aku this season ialah gaya org2 tua. I've alwiz liked maryjanes tho. Ni la dia, in navy blue. Hubby still kata ni kurang menarik. Aku rasa ni menarik lagi daripada the red maryjanes that i bought last week. Hmm.. mebbie di mata dia selipar jepun yg dah koyak rabak tu cantik lagi daripada mana2 kasut pompuan :D
4. Okay, this time aku berpatah balik ke hujung sana menuju ke parking lot utk isi barang2 yg dah beli tadi kat dlm kereta. Tak larat nak angkat coz berat, plus dpt satu weekender free skali dgn beli kasut tadi, tak sangka. Aku parking kat area David Jones, my new favourite parking area- terang, bersih, safe, banyak parking spots.

5. Now dah sampai Myer, so ingat nak gi belikan hubby his skincare stuff coz seingat aku masih dlm time offer ni. Singgah jap ke men's department. Ingat nak belikan hubby some winter cardigans or vest or jumper. Tapi sumer pon mahal lagi. Sempat la sambar some T-shirts for him. Pas tu bila sampai kat tpt skincare, rupenye dah abis offer. Maka aku pon gi la rayau2 tempat perfumes, lady's make-ups, colours, etc. Lama jugak la test itu ini, saja je. Ada jumpa this blusher brush yg batangye lagi besar dari yg aku beli tadi & lagi best.. hmmm, lain kali la nampak gayanye. Dah beli tadi tu. Until Dr. H. called suruh balik.. its time to study.. hehehehhehe..

6. Maka aku pon tergopoh-gapah la gi berpatah balik ke hujung dunia sana nak beli milk & some vegies before balik. Ye la, kalau beli milk awal2 kang rosak plak kang. Then angkat la beg shopping yg berat tu balik ke parking lot yg jauh nun. Letih beb.

Study la sket2 pasal VT/ VF tu. Memang our target at this point is to cover as many life-&-death conditions that all docs should know, kalau tak sesia je jadi doctor. Our approach is all holistic approach which will cover physio-patho-anat-pharm. Cita-cita besar tu :D
Tak jadi nak masak mee rebus coz YL ajak kami dinner rumah dia, sambil2 tengok Cold Case.

Oh ye, got the parcel from my parents, with the help of a family fren yg bercuti di Gold Coast.
Hmm... I wonder kotak kasut sapa ni ye..Seronok dok atas carpet kat lounge sambil bukak parcel ni. Cam budak kecik dapat hadiah. Ada some my Skin Food stuff, the rest hubby's stuff. Hubby was super thrilled when I showed him the parcel. Aku lagi la seronok.... Yaaahoooooo.... seronok sangat. Love u guys lots.

Takleh tido... untuk kesekiankalinyee..

Menci gila bila takleh tido. Nanti sure bangun lambat & hidup jadi sia-sia. Ni jap lagi siang ni start Chadstone VIP day & aku terasa nak gi pagi2 coz tak ramai org. Nak salahkan arvo shifts pon takleh jugak, coz aku kadang2 mereng gi minum coffee a few times a day bila cravings melanda jiwa. Now dah 3++am. Kata org study la sure mata ngantuk.. right.. dah abis ber-round2 aku pusing internet PLUS studying online lectures etc.. apsal segar je lagi ni. Used hubby lappie while waiting for mine to finish recharging, pas tu hubby nyer lappie dah abis battery, tukar ni plak & now bettery dah tinggal separuh. Jap lagi abis takkan nak tukar guna hubbynyer balik.. sheeshhh...

Bosan dah baca pasal ECGs in right heart strain & PE (tak abis-abis) & also ABG interpretation. And yes, music to my ears.. krohkrohkroh rasa nak ketuk kepala skali dua kasi diam...

Kerana jarum & epal

Aku ni sepatutnye gi mandi siap2 nak gi kerja ni. Tapi gatal nak gak tulis blog.

Malam tadi my 2nd last case was sorang pompuan tua terpijak jarum jahit yg anak2 dia main & berterabur atas karpet. Aku try tarik guna artery forcep tapi benang dia terputus, ni sumer pasal dgr nasihat boss aku la ni. Aku cakap aku nak potong je kaki dia kuarkan jarum tu, takyah la susah2 nak tarik, nanti putus benang tu & nanti terpaksa susah-payah korek2 kaki tu plak. And, aku betul, so terpaksa la godek2, korek2 sampai berlubang tapak kaki makcik ni. Still tak jumpa gak jarum tu.. last last kena gi XRay & kena refer to plastic surgeons. Tension aku. Aku memang menyampah dgn mana2 kes foreign body ni. Selalunye menda simple je macam tulang ikan ke paku ke, tapi the damage to the tissue coz nak mencari menda2 ni slalunye terlebih-lebih. Punye la susah nak cari. Tapi tu la, nak reduce risk of infection & further damage kena la cari sampai jumpa. Seksa betul.

Ok la, lepas kerja jap lagi sambung. Citer epal plak. Ni kena gi siap-siap dah.
I wish I jatuh sakit kat spital nanti & they send me home.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ops.. dah 2 hari utang nak citer pasal epal. Memang kelmarin nak sambung afta kerja tapi letih ya amat, la ni baru ada masa & tenaga nak sambung.
Sebelum tu, ayat di atas pasal aku nak sakit tu.. pasal aku harap2 kena gastro sepanjang weekends so that tak payah kerja :P kalau gastro policynye ialah takleh gi kerja 48hrs afta last symptoms.. hehehee.. imagine the time bleh 'rehat' kat rumah :)

Ok, ni pasal epal plak.
Semenjak last year aku baru perasan yg my gastritis (a.k.a. gastrik seperti kata org2 tua) is usually triggered by a few things including stress, soda, NSAIDs, nenas & epal, sometimes even water & milk if I have them first thing afta I wake up. Kenapa epal ye? Menurut kajian sains, epal akan stimulate gastric acid production, so kalau perut kosong akan irritate the stomach linig. Kalau stomach lining dah memang nipis, bila2 makan pon akan trigger gastritis.

Tu la jadinye malam weekends dulu tu. Pegi makan kat Kintochi (again) dengan Dr. H. Dia order apple soda, aku pon sibuk nak order apple soda. Lupa terus pasal pantang larang gastrik aku tu. Lepas abis makan, nak jalan kaki balik rumah, tetiba rasa perut saaaaakit sangat. Tapi memandangkan cuma 10minit je jaraknye teruskan jugak.
Oh no.. terpaksa patah balik bila dah suku perjalanan coz aku tak tahan, plus rasa nak muntah. Maka berlari-lari anaklah aku ke tandas di Chaddy sana. Dipendekkan cerita, I was dehydrated abis & kesakitan yg amat sangat, and terpaksa gak jalan kaki balik rumah. Terfikir gak.. takkan gastroenteritis (a.k.a. keracunan perut) kot, hubby & Dr. H. sehat semacam je. Then teringat la kat air soda tadi, soda epal.. wah, double blend.. hmm.. memang cari nahas betul.

Haaa... padan muka diri sendiri. Now I am sure to remember.. jangan terus ngap epal without thinking. Apple pie blom perasan lagi kesannye, tapi mebbie boleh coz epal tu dah masak, ntah next time aku try tengok kalau jadi menda sama.

Kesimpulannye.. makan tu biar la berpada-pada.. ni la yg dikatakan kerana mulut badan binasa..

Selamat berangkat & selamat pulang.. Amin

Hari ini, jam ~3pm waktu KL mak, abah, adik bongsu akan berangkat ke umrah di Tanah Suci.
Sebenarnye beberapa bulan dulu diorang dah kasitau diorang nak pegi umrah. Aku masa tu call nak ajak diorang datang sini.. ye la.. mak & abah tak teringin ke nak naik kereta baru aku. Tapi abah kata dia dah lama teringin nak buat umrah, last year tak berkesempatan. Hmm.. aku redha je la..

Sedih plak rasa.
Terasa nak ikut pon ada, tapi apakan daya aku terikat di sini :(

Tadi call diorang. Diorang janji nak contact us when time permits. Adik bongsu baru abis ujian bulanan, harap2 dia bagus semuanye. Dengar dia cerita, macam best je sekolah menengah ni. Dia dah abis packing & bawak buku skolah lsana. Amboi, semangat betul. Harap-harap apa yg dia blajar kat sana nanti berkat la, InsyaAllah. Oh ye, dia sempat lagi kasi p/w dia suruh aku main Restaurant City dia kat FB. Kata dia.. ye la, cuti pon cuti jugak, business tetap jalan. Chewaah.. siap kasi aku all the tips & bits-n-pieces cam mana nak run his restaurant lagi. Hahhaha.. lawak betul. Ye lah, ye lah.. nanti kaklong buat bisness betul-betul, biar kaya-raya. Hahahah.. In a way, aku lega jugak dengar suara dia still kanak-kanak lagi. Harap-harap dia stay that way until at least aku balik raya nanti... Amin. Huhuhuhu... from 3+ til now.. 13y.o.. bleh kira dgn jari je aku see him growing.. :(

Aku doakan mak, abah, adik bongsu selamat berangkat & selamat pulang. Semoga ibadat diberkati Allah swt, InsyaAllah...

Sejuknye hari ni

Lega sket perasaan aku ni after making a few phone calls to the insurance company & Mazda center about my baby. There are a few things that I learned from the phone calls. One of them is apparently Melbourne is setting a few hail storm centers around Victoria, one already being set up in Altona & another one coming to this side of Melbourne soon. My insurance rating wont be affected at all to get my car fixed & to claim the cost. A few other things & I'm sooo much relieved now. Even though still sad each time I look at the car, but at least now I'm willing to take it easy. Like I sed before its still functioning well, accept for the cosmetic part of it.
Hopefully everything is going well, InsyaAllah.

Kerja semalam memang sangat membencikan. We had all the good docs (termasuk la aku.. hehehheheeh) working but alas the nursing stuff plak yg hampas. We were in bypass a few times. Patients kept on flowing in, but 3/4 of them were not supposed to be there.. u kno wat I mean. GP stuff, drug seeking, stoopid cases, etc. Some public holidays can be good & quiet, while some are just dumb. Semua docs kata diorang benci gila kerja semalam.. oh well, at least it wasnt only me. While I was getting ready to work, I got this phone call from the bed coordinator suruh aku datang to work at 2pm, while I was actually rostered at 1pm. Dia ckp yg apparently I was rostered for on-calls in ED.. bodo ke apa.. tu la yg aku teringin sangat nak ckp on the fon masa dia call tu.

Semalam balik ngantuk gila. Seb baik tak byk kereta on the road. Aku bgn awal ~6+ semalam despite tido beberapa jam je. Kalau ikut time days off hari tu, I had a few naps during the day to support my lack of night sleep. Tapi smlm kena kerja so takleh la nak tido, esp. bila ED was like tunggang terbalik. Halfway thru aku nak terhangguk-hangguk dah.. tak larat betul. Hari ni terbangun lambat sket, ok kot since start at 4pm nanti. I really hope that ED will be more.. err.. decent today.. tak suka la case bodo2 lagi (doesnt help with my professional development) & hopefull sumer docs yg best2, as well as smart nurses (bukan smart asses.. heheheh). Semalam benci gila kerja, yg kasi semangat cuma my make ups :P tapi merudum bila sampai kat kerja. So harap2 hari ni pon semangat yg best gi kerja.

The physicians trainees are having their part 1 written exams today. Ni termasuk la Dr. MJ, Dr. AI & others. All the very best to them. Aku cam berdebar-debar plak bila fikir pasal diorang. Hmm.. cam tu la aku nanti if I suddenly decide to take exams this September, or next March.

Aku rasa hari ni cam sejuk plak. Dengan anginnye.. pagi tadi ada la sket matahari suam2 kuku. Then tetiba hujan, and aku pon doa la banyak-banyak supaya takde lagi hujan batu.. or at least until I've parked my car safely kat under cover car park at work nanti. Huhuhu...

And I am supposed to study now.. now.. NOW!!

Wizard of Ozzie

Got myself 2 pairs of shoes from Myer while waiting for hubby to habis his international video conference. Nak tau conference kat mana? Kat Westfield Doncaster.. (lama gila tak pegi) Hmm... memang cari nahas laaaa kan. Konon-konon nak study, while waiting. Bijak betul idea (idea sapa lagi.. aku la tu) Hehehehhe.. Well, kasut kerja je pon. 1 pair of grey velvety flat pumps, Liberty, from Sandler, takde la lawa mana, tapi rupa dia decent & they r comfy. Malas nak buboh gambar sini.
The other pair tu la dia dlm gambar ni.. 1" mary janes, Ego, Hush Puppies. Hubby says, "They are the ugliest shoes I've ever seen!" Huh?... Memang hodoh pon. Kaler dia merah gelap, cam clotted blood. Blunted front. Terasa cam kasut Dorothy dlm Wizard of Oz. Aku sendiri tengok pon rasa nak gelak, sambil membayangkan diri sendiri disgusted by ulat-ulat..
Tu la kasut baru aku. Serious hodoh. Hahhahahha.. hodoh utk org muda cam aku ni la... Aku la tu, the Wizard of Ozzie =P
My new pair of Mary Janes,
Ego from Hush Puppies.
Oh well.. they are sooo comfy, that's what matters. to get stilettos or pointy heels untuk kerja kat spital, I dont think its quite practical... by the end of the day wearing them, u'll get ischaemic feet for sure..

Selain daripada shoes, I also bought a few make up items... again, in my ongoing quest for the right make ups... for work.. =P Ye la, nak gi kerja kena la look proper. Mekap gi jalan2 tu lain cerita, more exciting. Kang pakai kaler ntah apa2 kang, tersedak semua org. Hehehe.. lagipon aku tak nak la rupa cam nurses kat situ kan.. mekap diorang.. ya ampun!! Malas nak boh gambar my make up purchase yet. Aku blom lagi guna sumer2 tu.. yg hari tu beli pon belom abis try lagi. Dah puas hati nanti aku bubuh review sini. Semangat nak gi kerja ni.. hahahhaha... mekap nyer pasal =P

Ye ni la kerja aku kalau time frust. Entah apa-apa ntah. Impulsive purchasing.
Well, aku ni takde la menonggeng mana.. tapi frust la jugak dgn peristiwa semalam tu. I am really sad looking at my dear baby. Abis lekuk sana-sini. Macam rupa golf ball. Sedih gilaaaaa! Everyone knows that aku ni terlebih sensitive when it comes to my car. Ye la.. with all the things that I've gone thru with my car, how could I not be sensitive.. huhuhu.. terasa nak gi hantar workshop & change the whole bumbung & bonet tu. Kereta tu nampak huduh cam beaten up car. Tak tau la if my insurance covers for natural disaster or not. Aku pelik how come hubby tak stress pon. Dia cakap as long as we are safe. True, true.. My car bukannye damaged functionally pon... just cosmetic je.. and again its all about appearance.. nak repair, uish.. melayang la $$$ aku, sini bukan cam kat M'sia, sini mahal melampau, bleh jual kaki tangan. Huhuhu.. and I cant afford to not have a car right now.. or ever. Tak sanggup nak go thru all the turmoil of sending my car to a workshop and all that.. abih tu camne?
Kesian my baby.. :((

Oh, bukan tu je aku stressing out ni. Went out to Dr. SM b'day dinner on Chappel Street. Benci aku with the crowd. The only ppl that we talked to ialah Dr. RN & the least favourite Dr. T, selain dp the couple themselves. Yang lain tu.. sheessshhh... snobs & racists! They totally ignored me & hubby, as well as Dr. T & Dr RN. The whole night memang awkward gila. Benci aku dgn doktor2 yg berlagak nak mampos cam gitu. Cam bagus je.. Ok, fine, I am different, but apsal treat hubby cam tu jugak? He's an Aussie guy cam diorang gak, who speaks & dress & culturally much like Aussies, not any different coz diorang pon bukannye Aussie whites pon. Kurang ajar betul. Kesian hubby. Aku malu dgn species doctors cam gini. Aku ingat corporate people je yg hampas cam gini, maklum la, diorang kan konon-konon authoritative & important to the country's economy & fate. Tapi.. ada gak docs cam gini. Well, to be fair, u get these kind of people from every walk of life. The thing is, Dr. SM & Dr. RN are the nicest people ever. Half of the crowd that we used to hang out with were not there coz of exams, interstate, etc. This time it was the new crowd that Dr. SM has known all through out her career... alas, the people are such snobs! Benci gila.

Hari ni panas kejap di pagi hari.. then, mendung & hujan lebat lagi. Seb baik tak hail strom again. Semalam bergegar rumah disebabkan hujan batu tu. And, I am constantly tired since kena URTI ni, asik tido around 4-5hours every night then tido again 2,3 kali during the day. Setiap kali bangun sure sakit badan.

Oh ye, lepas shopping tadi, went straight to rumah K.Y. She's preggie 17wks now, and happy. Married again, got a new super mahal house in Lower Templestowe (a suburb well known for wealthy people). Hmm.. hmm... I better not say anything.. all I can say is, hidup ni biarlah diberkatiNya... I'm not gonna preach anything, everyone has a choice here.. and aku dah try, kini aku cuma mampu berdoa saja...

Esok ialah labour day here. Most people cuti & aku plak kerja arvo shift.. huhuhu.. hopefully takde org datang ED today coz of long holiday & today will go smoothly.
Yang penting mintak-mintak la esok panas sket.. baju-baju tu dah 2 hari dah berjemur kat luar tu...

Hujan batu..

Berdentum-dentam bunyi hujan batu jatuh atas bumbung. Terkejut la jugak, aku tgh mamai baru bgn dari arvo nap. Teringat baju yg jemur kat luar pagi tadi (panas masa tu), terus kami lari ke luar. Tapi tak sempat nak ke ampaian dah kena lari balik masuk dlm. Kesian hubby kena ketulan ais kat luar tu, aku tak sempat kena lagi. Besar gila hujan batu tu... biar je la baju2 kat luar tu...

Oh noooo!! Abih kereta aku... banyak gila small round dents kat bonet!!! AARRRRGGHHH!!

Di celah2 pintu dapur. Bukan tong merah tu yg aku nak tunjuk.
Tapi air batu yg berkumpul kat tepi tu.
Besar gila air batu...
Dah la aku ni tengah tak brapa sihat.. mebbie common cold je.. tapi common cold yg cukup utk buat aku lethargic since yesterday + mebbie labyrintitis skali coz terasa dizzy bila drive & jalan. Takde mood betol la...

Pagi tadi bgn awal gila kol 6am. Bila matahari dah nampak sket aku pon gi la terbongkok-bongkok menebas semak kat driveway depan sana nun. Tak nak la kereta aku calar setiap kali kuar masuk. Dapat buat sikit je coz lengan aku dah lenguh & terketar-ketar dah. Tak puas hati coz tak abiskan sumer. Hubby helped out with hanging the laundry. Alhamdulillah panas masa tu even tho weather forecast kata possible thunder storm.
And.. yeah, a hailstorm in just a flip second.. abih kereta aku! Kereta hubby pon banyak dents gak.. sheesshhh...
Nyesal aku tak beli car cover hari tu.. :((

Malas gila nak gi b'day dinner Dr. SM malam ni. Setiap tahun since final year aku ngelak, and this year I cant ngelak lagi. Bukan apa, I just dun fit in the crowd anymore, kengkawan dia dah lain & aku segan. Hmm... takpe la.. pegi je la. Dah beli pon hadiah hari tu.. sayang plak kalau tak kasi. Besarnyeee pengorbanan aku.. sakit-sakit cam gini pon pegi gak...

Ingat nak gi Moomba Festival, its this weekend. Missed it last year. Tapi my weekend evenings full plak this week, masa accept invitation from people tu tak perasa plak that its gonna be around the Moomba time. Isnin plak labour day kat sini, aku plak terpaksa kerja... ARVO SHIFT plak tu! Sheeshh... Tengok cuaca cam gini.. hmm... nampaknye fireworks pon takkan jadi best cam before la.. ish.. ruginye tak dpt pegi.. ruginyee tak dpt tengok cam mana all our tax money being burnt to fireworks... Mesti la nak pegi kan. Dah tengok dah cam mana duit tax aku digunakan utk support those junkies..
this time nak la tengok cam mana duit penat lelah aku kena bakar..

Huhuhuhu... kereta kesayanganku :((
TENSION!!

Kerana biskut...

Gumbira dpt balik awal today, had an OK night. Another night to go before off for the weekends.
Sampai rumah dah lapar, ingat nak makan sumthing from the pantry. Tapi sang matahari memancar indah kat luar tu, so decided to do the laundry. Gi jemur kain after siap2 cuci muka bagai.
Cantik sungguh matahari, sedap je suasana pagi ni.. rasa cam nak gi jalan2 or simply lepak-lepak kat luar ni.
Then teringat kat perut tgh bunyi-bunyi kebuluran, maka aku pon gi la ke pantry.. ternampak tong Julie's Peanut Butter Sandwich that we bought from Springvale the other day.
Dengan semangatnye aku pon kuarkan la, ingat nak telan la sebungkus dua before tido jap lagi...
Aku pon apa lagi.. korek la tutup tong tu dgn senduk besar...
Maka...
... Tergamam aku sebentar... and.. tetiba terasa dadaku berdenyut-denyut...
... Sampainye hati.. abis dah...
... dan tong kosong tu dibiarkan je dlm pantry tu...

Huhuhuhu...
Kempunan aku...

Nuthing much..

I have a massive headache right now. Woke up right 8 hours afta a very nice sleep post night shift. Mebbie it was too much.
Arrghh.. sakitnyeee.. berdenyut-denyut & half of my head rasa cacat. I dont get much headaches/ migraine nowadays anymore..

I usually sleep well during the day after night shifts, usually around 6-8hours, and I usually settle very well with only 6hours. Better than my night sleep during A.M. shifts. And bila bangun selalunye segar bugar ready to rock the world... ye la, masak ke study ke kemas2 ke.. hehehee.. my sleeping problems usually emerge if I'm doing afternoon shifts... and unfortunately this month I have lotsa arvo shifts & nights (but thank Allah for lotsa A.M. next month.. Yay!)
I HATE AFTERNOON SHIFTS!

Last night wasnt that bad. Ok je. Ada la 3,4 cases bodo-bodo yg buang masa melayan (bosan betul those patients yg tak tau what it means by E.M.E.R.G.E.N.C.Y!!!). Ada ke patut satu parent ni bawak anak dia kena tonsilitis sebab nangis sakit tekak tak nak makan.. GP dia dah kasi ubat dah pon. Buang masa aku!
Ada tu plak datang coz blood sugar level dia tinggi sebelum tido, bukan tinggi mana pon dlm 20 je & dia ada insulin kat rumah. Apparently dia nyer sugar control very poor coz tak nak tukar lifestyle & eating pattern, aaaanndd.. yg buat aku berasap lagi tu ialah dia tak nak jumpa GP dia coz kena bayar au$40 afta Medicare rebat. Nak tau apa aku buat.. fixed the sugar with ultra short acting insulin & suruh dia jumpa GP... and I told her.."This is an EMERGENCY department, non-critical things like this we only spot-manage in ED and u would benefit more by seeing ur GP than waiting for 8hours in ED just to be told this advice. Next time please do what your GP says about your diabetes control because I'm sure your GP is more than capable to help you, and he has done all the right things.. its just u who hasnt been compliant.." Dia dgn tak puas hatinye menjawab.. "but, but.. I hafta make a booking, hafta pay au$40.. he's no good.. blablabla.." Last last aku suruh dia balik je. Sedap gigi je ckp GP dia tak bagus. Aku rasa dia sure tak pahamnyer aku bebel buih-buih tadi coz dia ni from NESB & the English is not that good pon even tho dia dah dok sini 30thn. Berapi je aku... Sheesshh....
Buang masa & taxpayers money layan orang2 cam gini... sejuta kali ED presentation dalam setahun coz tak pernah nak buat apa doctor advice... even simple thing macam jaga makan.. chet! Kesian those patients yg more critical waiting to be seen.

Bertambah-tambah sakit kepala aku memikirkan healthcare system kat sini... shhheeeshhhhh! Dah telan 2 biji panadol.. well, I cant afford to rest & not go to work.. I sorta love my job in ED. Every single case (walaupon ada yg membencikan) is a learning opportunity. Plus I have a strong faith on therapeutic benefits of meds :)

Balik kerja tadi singgah Coles beli Up&Go lagi. Ada offer best. And aku borong 10packs skali gus. Ingat nak amik satu shelf tu, tapi apakan daya aku sorang je.. yg seploh ni pon rasa nak terberak mengangkutnye ke kereta. Oh ye, bought a bday prezie for adik kecik sorang ni, bday dia next week.. hmm.. dia ni kalau ikutkan pangkat anak sedara.. tapi panggil adik lah, coz that means aku muda lagi.. baru pangkat akak je :D
Aku kan kira cam bermastautin kat Chadstone mall ni :P Macam-macam org dah jumpa dah. Ada tu on the way nak gi beli sayur ada sorang pakcik ni.. korang ingat Mario dlm Super Mario Brothers? Hehehehe.. cam tu la rupa dia, dgn overall, misai tebal, topi & body cam tu... cuma rambut & misai dia putih je. Imagine Mario dah tua nanti, rupa cam tu la kot. Hahahahah...

The sun was shining & soft breeze came along with it.. best je. Nampak kereta wit license plate nombor 474. Teringat other cars.. 774, 747, etc.. teringat abah aku.. mesti dia suka nombor2 ni :D
Balik tu did some laundry then krohh krohh krohhh...

Ni jap lagi ni nak kena siap dah. Aku patutnye baca pasal ABG ni.. Now plak tgh tengok NCIS.. last week totally missed it coz worked arvo shift.
Hmmmm... abih, camno?

Autumn

Wow, its the 1st of March of 2010 already! And this means that it is officially autumn marked by the calendar in Victoria... even though autumn breeze has long been felt before. Spring started early, summer started early & not as severe as during the el Nino/ la Nina last 2yrs, winter started early & will start early jugak la nampakye.
1st March juga bermakna bermulanye transitional weather here.. dgn hujan, angin, panas, suam-suam, sejuks, etc. Dedaun akan bertukar kaler & gugur, hari akan jadi lebih pendek, daylight saving abis (thn ni lambat sket, it will be during the Easter time), gradual cessation of lotsa outdoor activities, dan lain-lain lagi. Ini jugak bermakna makin ramai pensakit2 akan muncul di spital nun, especially the systemic ones e.g. ischaemic heart disease, exacerbation of lung diseases, pesakit2 mental, etc. Dan aku juga harus bersiap sedia coz every single year autumn (and spring) will be my sick season with many sick days off work & tak best coz sakit yg teruk tak enjoy days off langsung.. all of which involve the respiratory system.
Kami kena start getting ready for the coming cold season.. nanti nak kena kuarkan the thermals, thicker clothes, selimut2 tebal, lower down the front shutter, etc...

1st March 2010. I am now a little more comfortable in writing the date in my patient's notes, even though ada la jugak tersilap tulis 2009 esp. bila ngantuks. I wasnt ready at all to write the whole new year dates in January, then suddenly it was February. Still half-half, then now dah March.. how time has passed very quickly.. tetiba je exams.. Warrgghh.. exams.. gerun!!

Aku still menzombiekan diri tonite coz malam ni aku akan start my night shifts again until Thursday night. I did read a little of the pathology book pasal rheumatic fever, infective endocarditis & pericarditis.. coz hari tu ada patient dgn sakit misteri yg boss2 kinda missed diagnosing until we called the cardiology reg to have a look at the weird ECGs.. it was suspected pericarditis even tho the ECGs didnt really show the typical ECGs of a pericarditis. Oh well, we did rule out the more disastrous life-threatening conditions like inferior infarct, perforated viscous & acute pancreatitis.
Aku dah buat list of the cases that I saw in ED for the past 3 weeks coz at least bleh aku refresh myself of bits & pieces of the conditions.. Bosan dah baca buku pathology tu, tukar buku lak ke Kumar&Clark & online UpToDate.

Yesterday I slept around late 6am after berjaga the whole night. Hubby gi meeting kat National Library kat city nun. I was thinking of going to the city kalau bangun awal. Takde la bangun lambat mana, but tak jadi pegi. Lepas hubby balik we went to Chadstone (..again) instead. Plan nak borong Up & Go coz semalam lupa beli. My very essential ration at work. Also the instant creamy mushroom soup. Other foods: Maltesers minis, instant oat drink, instant 3-in-1 Milo, instant miso soup, fruits. Tu je la pon yg aku lalu nak makan kalau kat tempat kerja. Just small snacks utk alas perut. Kalau makan berat2 kang nangtuk plak. Kadang2 aku makan roti wholemeal (yucks!) yg dah disediakan kat tearoom ED sana. Lagipon aku selalu makan heavy prior leaving to work kasi extra energy sket, so no need for another heavy meal during my breaks at work.

Oh ye, again, singgah ke Kintochi coz aku dah kempunan nak makan the sushi, sahimi, maki
yg sedap nyaman tu. Sejak 3,4 hari lagi aku dah asik teringat2 je kat the fresh delicacies from Kintochi. Sampai terkuar air liur bila terfikir tu. Ntah dah brapa kali dah kami pegi situ sampai the main chefs & pelayan pon dah kenal muka kitorang ni. Hubby sebenarnye dah bosan datang sini.. each time aku ckp aku nak gi sini he will just shrug it off or buat muka boring dia. Dia ckp ada byk lagi tpt kat Melbourne ni yg serve melt-in-the-mouth fresh fish. And aku ckp balik semua tu not within walking distance from where we live. Kalau kempunan sini paling dekat. Heheheheh...
Tadi aku teringin nak amik the seaweed yg berputar2 kat train track tu. Baru je nak amik the tukang buat sushi tetiba cakap Melayu dgn aku.. terkujat gak aku. Dia ckp jgn amik yg atas line tu coz kurang fresh dah lebih setengah jam dia buat. Dia ckp nanti dia buatkan utk aku yg lain yg lebih fresh & dia blanja aku. Waaahhh.. seronoknye aku! Maka dlm deluxe tray yg aku order tu dpt la free sotong & seaweed, also another extra plate of seaweed utk entree. Best gila! =) Aku ckp kat hubby, tu la, ada gak untungnye jadi regular ni.

Also bought mekap set from Clinique utk Dr SM sempena harijadi dia ujung minggu ni. Dapat free travel set termasuk mekap bag. (Nanti aku bubuh gambarnye). Aku malas la nak simpan the free gifts coz aku pon dah byk collection masa guna Clinique dulu. Aku teringat Dr SM guna this brand, once she told me, coz dia teringat aku pakai this dulu. Well, didnt tell her that now I'm moving on to the Skin Food. Hmm... baiknye aku sebagai kawan.. heheheh (perasan)... aku suka kasi mekap as a gift coz aku sendiri suka hadiah mekap (aaand.. handbags, kasut, accessories, barang dapur, barang bilik tido).. cumenyee susah sket I think nak kasi surprise hadiah mekap (or apa-apa saja without asking me for hints of what I want) coz my own collection pon dah banyak. Aku ni cerewet sket dlm pilihan texture, colours, rupa, etc. Plus, I'm sooooo into beauty products that I kno most of them on the market. Tu subject favourite aku utk surf the net, siap ada bookmarks lagi & kalau gi newsagent or book store mesti gi belek bahagian mags focusing on beauty sections. Tengok new products, new way of applying colours, how-to's, etc (bahagian handbags & accesorries pon aku suka gaks!). Kalau gi department stores aku sure nak gi ke beauty dept coz saja suka tengok2 & belek2. Lalu pon jadilah. Takde la slalu beli pon, saja suka.. obsessed..

Oh ye, aku nak kasi my early review of using the foundation brush that I bought the other day. I think I've mastered a little bit of how to apply my liquid foundation using the foundation brush tadi. My view is.. boleh tahan la sapuan dia on my face. Bulu dia lembut & gebu & senang basuh & tak cepat hancur lepas basuh. Nampak & feel lebih rata with more coverage than dgn jari. And best jugak bila my fingers are not dirty anymore, therefore, avoiding accidental marks on my work clothes. Downfall dia ialah kena sapu rata-rata kalau tak nanti nampak patchy & agak susah nak sapu kat idung or eyelids, dan disebabkan ini jugak my make up routine jadi slower than usual... mebbie coz I'm still not used to it fully.
I notice kalau apply using my fingers, my make up process is quick & easy. Senang nak sapu kat those difficult surfaces, hence I can be confident aku dah sapu sumer tpt yg nak disapu. Senang nak control brapa byk lapisan foundation ikut suka aku. I've noticed that by using the brush my layers tend to be a little thicker than guna jari. Susah nak control kalau aku just nak sket je coz foundation will immerse into the bristles so kena bubuh lebih sket, ini menyebabkan cam lebih cat plak atas muka aku & kalau bubuh sket je jadi laaaambaaaat sangat nak abis satu muka.. unless guna roller bulu/kabus cam cat dinding tu. Thats the part yg aku kureng minat guna brush. But mebbie aku kena practice lagi kot kasi pro.

Krohh krohh krohhh.. music (yg menyeksakan) to my ears. Aku nak gi makan sushi tadi bawak balik, takpon makan cereals yg sedap tu :) Sambil-sambil sambung study sampai time tido just when the time hubby nak get ready to go to work.. :D
