he was checking out my ass.

Today I went for my first official ward round. 🙂
I’ve been on rounds before this, but along with a colleague of mine and at the female ward she is in charge of.
The round was not too bad. Did not communicate that much with the doctor. Was a bit nervous of being asked questions that do not know the answers to !
Was also nervous as there were quite a number of patients with tuberculosis and retroviral positive.
Looking forward to doing better tomorrow. InshaAllah. 🙂
Mr Sunshine has transferred both his Streamyx and Astro accounts to the place I am staying now. I do not have to live in boredom anymore. 🙂
Had a short date with Mr Sunshine after work today.
He commented that my ass has gotten mantap. Hahahaha. I’m feeling it too. Hahaha. Semua orang boleh muntah sekarang.
In my defense, I’ve been doing a whole lot of squats lately.
But…they don’t seem to be working on my thighs ! Plus this extra weight on me has not been dropping off at all. At all. :'(
I was on call last weekend but Mr Sunshine and I still found time to head to East Coast Mall, Kuantan after work on Friday to watch 2012 which was a huge dissapointment.
The both of us could not believe we traveled for more than two hours to watch (if I may say so) a piece of crap. There’s no doubt that the visual effects was good, but the script was nauseatingly cheesy most of the time, and the plot was downright sucky. Even the cast could not save it from being a flop.
Mr Sunshine and I were giggling in disbelief throughout the whole movie.
I was so relieved when it was over.
Definitely the worst movie I’ve watched this year. -_____-
It’s a good thing we also drove there to terminate my Maxis Broadband. There are no Maxis Centres in Terengganu.
Another good thing about last Friday was dinner. We had an early dinner at Black Canyon Coffee House. Has any one of you been there ?
It was our first time, and we were very pleased with the menu variety and price.
They have a selcetion of the menu they call the Fusion Menu.
I ordered the Fettuccini Chicken Green Curry which was not bad. Not too spicy. But I love my food spicy !
Mr Sunshine tried the Fusilli in Chicken Tom Yum. IT WAS THE BEST TOM YUM I HAVE EVER TASTED WEH ! I felt like having another bowl !
I’m salivating by even looking at the pictures.
An added point was the staff were really courteous.
I would definitely want to go back there again. *hint hint*
Oh yeah, I was surprised with roses last Thursday. 🙂
I’m gonna watch Phineas and Ferb now. 😀
Bye !

It has been raining for a few days straight here in Terengganu, and as some of you observant ones out there might already know, it has already flooded in a few areas here. Including where I am now.
I woke up yesterday to the phone ring of my colleague from telling me that she was unable come to work as the roads to the hospital were blocked. Soon, I learned that only two pharmacists including me who could be at the hospital, and the both of us stay at the quarters.
The hospital and my quarters area are not affected as we’re situated on high land, but both roads just after the hospital, leading to Kuala Terengganu and Kuala Berang town respectively, have been closed due to the water rise.
We’re literally stuck in the middle with limited access to food supply (and McDonald’s !). When I say limited, it’s because as at now, only huge lorries, or tractors can go through the water.
I have to admit, I am a bit of a jakun about this whole flood scenario.
I know floods happen in KL too, but from where I was growing up I have never actually been affected by anything like this.
I am a bit excited yet scared and sad at the same time. Gila kot ?
Excited by this new experience, and being able to learn how to deal with it.
Scared that it will get worse.
And sad that Mr Sunshine and I cannot meet each other. Worse still, I MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO GO HOME THIS AIDILADHA if this goes on or gets bad.
A few snapshots the jakun side of me took yesterday evening. Pleas pardon the bad quality photos from my phone.
Here are photos of my poor tyre which I damaged two weekends ago. 🙁
But I learned how to change a tyre so it’s all good. Thank you Mr Sunshine. 🙂
Oh yeah, I moved into my quarters last week, or was it last two weeks ?

I am alone every single night in this big (leaking) place I should learn to call home.

I have no life here in Kuala Berang.
I sleep, go to work, come back from work and exercise (cewah, baru dua hari sahaja actually !), go online, and watch OTH/DVDs. And, REPEAT.
Work is good, Alhamdulillah.
I have not been able to say that AT ALL for the past year, eh ?
I am living on instant noodles right now.
I have a tin of tuna and a tin of baked beans with cheese in my kitchen too.
Saving them for when I get tired of Maggi/Mamee/Cintan.

molek lah tu.

I am in Gombak. 
Had to come back to get the rest of my things and settle a few wedding related issues.
I am starting to fall sick from all this traveling and living like a nomad for the past week. 🙁

I was on call last Saturday in Putrajaya, Mr Sunshine came down by bus that evening and we both drove to Kuala Terengganu that night itself. 
Checked in at Grand Continental Hotel for two nights. Rented a room at RM70 per night at a ‘homestay’ in Kampung Sungai Rengas for three nights. 

I reported for duty at Jabatan Kesihatan Negeri Terengganu on Sunday morning and only got to know in the evening that I will be working in Hospital Hulu Terengganu.
When the person in charge said Hulu Terengganu, I went, “Kat mana tu ??”
It’s actually 45 minutes from Kuala Terengganu, which is not really bad compared to Setiu, Besut or Kemaman which takes an hour or more to reach.
So, Alhamdulillah.

Hospital Hulu Terengganu is situated in Kuala Berang. It’s a district hospital so it’s not

But my first week there was good, Alhamdulillah. 🙂
I am one of their clinical (ward) pharmacist, in charge of the male ward.
I have tons of reading up to do to brush up on my clinical knowledge !

Initially Mr Sunshine and I spent everyday looking for a house to rent in the area between Kuala Terengganu and Kuala Berang. We were planning to pick a house that we can stay immediately after we get married. We did not opt to stay at the hospital quarters as we thought it would be troublesome for him to commute to Kuala Terengganu from the hospital everyday. But house hunting was harder than the both of us thought. 🙁

After giving it much thought (Mr Sunshine reluctantly agreed to travel to and fro daily, haha), the both of us decided that I should apply to stay at the hospital quarters for officers. So I did just that and was lucky enough to get into the very last lot ! Alhamdulillah.

I have checked out the place. Apart from it being filthy and unkempt, the place is quite spacious, with three rooms and one bathroom, a toilet and built-in (outdated) cabinets.

It still needs a lot of repairing and touching up to do, but I think I will be able to make it as cosy as home in time for Mr Sunshine to move in. InshaAllah. 🙂

I won’t be able to put my things in until they clean the place up. They will be starting to do tomorrow. I hope I can move in by Sunday. Ameen.
Frankly, the idea of staying there alone for the next two months is a bit creepy lah. But there’s nothing I can do about that, can I ?

Being 6 hours away from Daddy, Marc, Lene and all my friends gets to me at times. Sobs.
But I am grateful to have Mr Sunshine nearby. He has been my rock, listening to me whine about almost everything (even when I blamed him for making me get posted so far !), wiping my tears when I felt homesick and exhausted and driving me to McDonald’s when I am down. 🙂
Thank you awak. 🙂

Siapa nak melawat Terengganu boleh lah stay over at my place. 🙂
I can chaffeur you around town, we have McDonald’s tau. Hehe. 🙂

Argh, nak demam. 🙁

hello terengganu !

Hi all.
Guess what, I am gonna (finally) bid farewell to Putrajaya, and wave hello to Terengganu !
So today (yesterday), the ten of us who are still remaining in Hospital Putrajaya finally got to know our posting results ! It came as a surprise to us as we were already preparing ourselves for the possibility of having to stay on for another whole month. Argh, the horror.
The fact that 7 out of 10 of us got retained in JKWPKL was pleasant news. We all got where we applied for, Alhamdulillah.
There’s just one problem, all of us do not know where (which hospital/clinic) exactly in Terengganu/Sabah/Sarawak/KL that we’re gonna work in.
I am gonna try to call tomorrow to check.
Oh yeah, according to the person I spoke to just now, we’re supposed to report for duty on November 1st. Yes, I know, that’s only like a couple of days away.
I am hoping and praying for the best. Ameen.
Had dinner and dessert with The Best Friend just now. 🙂
I officially have five McDonald’s Coke glasses.
Sorry, I have minimal willpower lah. :p

i need to get out of here already.

I spent the weekend in Puteri Resort, Ayer Keroh, Malacca, attending the 2009 Pharmacy Scientific Conference. 3 days and 2 nights of talks, CPDs and all the PRPs (including me, of course) had to present our research/study in front of almost 150 pharmacists/doctors/pharmacy assistants.
It was such and exhausting event !
There were 13 of us who had to present and compete against each other. Talking in front of such a crowd sure brought me back to when I used to debate. Sigh.
I had shivers of nervousness. I felt like my supervisor had high hopes of me grabbing first place.
But who knew, I actually did ! Hehe. :p
Winning felt good, Alhamdulillah. But the thought of having to bring my research to the national level is scaring the s*** out of me.
Post-conference dinner at Bumbu Bali, Puchong. 😀
I would definitely suggest checking out Bumbu Bali Restaurant in Bandar Puteri, Puchong. The food was delicious and reasonably priced and I loved the ambience. Felt as if I was dining in Bali. OK kidding, I’ve never been to Bali. :p
But I loved the place. 🙂

Has anyone ever stayed at Puteri Resort ? If no, I would advise against it.
Though the rooms were satisfactory, the food was bad. Really bad lah. From smoke tasting pudding, tough and tasteless lamb to cockroach smelling water. Sobs.
Maybe it was just our luck, but I can say that if I could help it, I will never go back there.

A group of students from UiTM (my juniors) spent the last three weeks at the hospital rotating between the Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM), Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) and (Cytotoxic Drug Reconstitution (CDR) units. Since I am in TDM and the pharmacist in charge was on leave during that period, I had to be in charge of them, guiding them and conducting discussion on cases with them. It was a good experience and it’s making me think of making a career change.
We’ll see how things go, InshaAllah. 🙂
I was going through a really stressful day at work last Friday before departing to Malacca but what the students got for me on that day before leaving really really made my day !
 Click, click to enlarge !
Biarlah ‘Thank’s you’ pun. I was so touched, I felt appreciated ! 🙂

Sejuk hati saya. 🙂
All of us in Putrajaya are currently still waiting for the results of our posting. Most of my friends were sent to Sabah, Sarawak, Kelantan and Pahang. Some lucky ones were retained where they previously were. I changed my application to Terengganu, since Mr. Sunshine is over there. But I am still in doubt and am preparing for the worst. 🙁
Mintak dijauhkan, Ameen.

Most of the PRPs from all the other hospitals have already gotten to know where they would be working for the next three years as Fully Registered Pharmacists (FRPs).

Mr Sunshine stays in Terengganu.
At the Kuala Terengganu Pharmacy Enforcement Department, to be exact.

what would you do…

…if you have spent weeks planning to attend something pretty important over the weekend, registered for it, booked transportation tickets etc. then you find out TWO days before, that on that very same weekend, there will be a two-day meeting at which attendance is compulsory ?

I want to cuss so badly right now.

I am not enjoying the fact that I am back at work and have loads of unfinished business.
Business that could have been settled if I did not choose to procrastinate.

But I am just lazy and full of excuses and I don’t think that’s gonna change anytime soon.

Officer J: Oh so you’re from *** ?
Provisional Officer: Yeah.
Officer J: That’s a very political place, right ?
Provisional Officer: Errr, how do you know ?
Officer J: I have been working with the government for years now lah.
Provisional Officer: Ohh ookayy.

Officer A: How’s *** ?
Provisional Officer: Well, the place is ok lah, but…*cringes* hm you were there too, right ?
Officer A: *smiles* Yeah, it’s the people lah, the office politics so terrible lah there.
