A month has come and gone, a new year has arrived. [18 Jan 2005|07:45pm]
I'm glad Singapore won the Tiger Cup and that I've never lost faith in them. It's so good to see the Lions finally winning! On home ground somemore. This is just the beginning of a great soccer team, I hope.

Anyways, I got accepted into NYP Dip in Nursing. This is my third week. Skipped a semester straight to Yr 1 Semester 2. So many projects due next week and having a headache now surely isn't helping. Hmm, PY and myself were placed in group 31. A great class. Accepted us straight away. Love ya all.

I forgot what I wanted to blog about...

Last posting for my nursing course was very hectic. It was very stressful and patient care was very demanding that I'll be dead tired when I got back. School/attachment ended the week before. I'm currently waiting for myresults and graduation. Have to get my applications ready for NYP.

Went to KL two days after that with my family. Took the coach there and stayed at the hotel co-owned by my aunt/uncle. Shopped like mad, well my brother mostly. Took the shuttle plane back to Singapore 4 days later. Good food in M'sia.

Other than that, I'm bumming around.

Played tennis yesterday morning for 3 1/2 hours with my brothers. Ouch. Aching everywhere. It's been a few months since I did any jogging or played any type of sports. Ouch again.

Have been following the Tiger Cup 2004 religiously. And I must say, Singapore football standards have really improved compared to the team that played in the previous Tiger Cup. I'm really impressed.

Third day of the fasting month. Woke up around 4 plus to sahur and later at 8am had my driving lesson. Fun. But I got so scared when I was at the stop line, turning left and the engine suddenly stalled and jerked so hard. But I improved after that incident happened twice. Haha. My instructor said I drive well but I'm too slow when I'm moving off. Next lesson will be on the road already. Wish me well hehe.

I have alot to talk about. My friend, Zi Yang asked me what I'll be doing during the Dec hols. I told him that I don't have any plans yet. I know he was going to work. He said that I'm leading a good life ar. At home shake leg, everything ask my father. No need to work yet I have money. Then he said he's a poor boy leading a good life though. He has good friends and all. :)

Well, he got me thinking. Well yes I do have my dad's support for alot of things. I don't have to work to get the money to spend. But my family hasn't been living the good life forever. We've had our hard times when the whole family suffered. I mean, we've been through the whole roller coaster ride. Life isn't easy but my family has never given up... never. We suffered together, we celebrated together. There's this unity in my family. We are always there for each other. I'd say I am fortunate but I don't brag about it. I do help others whenever I can because I know how it feels to suffer.

Another sight that tugged my heartstrings... a busload of M'sian workers heading towards the causeway. It's sad to see that they have to wake up and travel and reach home so late just to work in S'pore and hardly seeing their family just to work. But they show determination and hard work and I respect them for that. It's not easy. And damn, when my travelling time is only 1hour, I'm already complaining so much. Haiz, I'm contradicting myself aren't I? I do take things for granted sometimes. Well, I will try not to.

[ mood | blah ]

One of the three kittens died this morning. We brought the other two to the vet for a check-up just now. Haiz. Christopher Reeves also passed away today due to infection or something. Haiz.

Today was an okay day. Very busy but I enjoyed it... did so many skills but only managed to get 2 skills signed. Haiz. I was doing my case study on Chronic Renal Failure. Important parts are completed. Just need to add more infos here and there before I hand it in on Wednesday.

Hmm... I need moral support to go to the doctor. My mind is so pre-occupied right now. Ugh.

Yeps. It was fun! Haha. Today I learnt left turning. More difficult than turning right, but it was good. Hmm.. I enjoyed today's lesson although I had to wake up damn early because I chose session 1 haha.

I drove a freaking car today! [09 Oct 2004|09:41pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

Hehe. Yep. Today was my first practical lesson. It was very scary at first. With the instructor explaining and having to concentrate on so many things to do such as; clutch fully, change to gear 1, release hand brake, press the accelerator pedal and hold, release the clutch abit and hold, moving already, keep your eyes on the road and control the steering wheel and NEVER let go of the clutch. Haha. I did, twice and kena lectured sia. But after that, I was able to remember NOT to let go haha. I asked my instructor, "You're not scare ar with drivers like me?" He said, "No lah. Season already." Tomorrow is my next lesson.

Still haven't been to the doctor. I'm procrastinating again. I'm scared lah, that's why.

Curiousity kills the cat, Paranoia kills me. [07 Oct 2004|06:14pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

Being a nurse makes me super paranoid. I've been having this lump in my axillary area and it has been a few weeks. Although there's no history of CA in my family... I'm afraid it might be. But it may be benign though. Like I've said, I'm thinking too much about it. I'm going for a check-up this Saturday at the polyclinic. Hopefully it's just a cyst.

That has been distracting for a long time. I've been so forgetful lately. Ugh.

Work was same old, same old.

I enjoy talking to my patients and actually learning more about them and their conditions.

Bored as hell.

Sleeping alot but I'm still very tired.

I'm starting to be an idiot again.

I'm pushing away people that I'm getting very close to. Ugh.

I'm sick of always getting worried.

I'm ranting.

I'm lost.

Save me...

Spent yesterday afternoon baking chocolate chip cookies. I baked 2 batches. The first batch finished already lol. Hmm... spent the rest of the day in front of the tv watching mtv, soccer and Summer Scent. Went to bed after that.

Woke up this morning and had to help my mum with preparing for laksa. Then tv again. Haha. Later went out to get our peranakan kebaya. Oops... I'm told I need a certain push up thingy to ahem... enhance my asset when I'm wearing kebaya and that I don't need a corset because I don't have any tummy. LOL.

I'm waiting for Gilmore Girls to be shown on tv.

Update on my skin condition. Haha. Now I'm scaling or peeling like a snake. It's so disgusting. No wonder my skin was all tight just now. Ugh. I can't even stand to look at myself in the mirror. How am I going to face my patients tomorrow? Eddy told me to pretend that I went sun tanning and got burnt real bad. Razali and Eddy kept saying, "the things that girls do to look better. haiz." Haha. Ouch. I just yawned and my skin feels as though it's going to tear especially the area around my mouth.

I'm sorry if I've been complaining too much recently.

Ugly Duckling is wallowing is self-pity. [26 Sep 2004|01:44pm]
Ugh. That's how I feel about myself right now. And I can't even smile. My skin is so tight. I remind myself of Freddy Kruger. *sobs* And the redness is not fading yet. But I'm receiving so much support from my family which is very sweet. I wish I can take MC tomorrow but heck... I don't think Dr. Tan will give me any.

Ahh. I'm so bored. Just watched Summer Scent. Man, it's circling around the bush so many times and not getting to the point. Lol. But I'm still loving it. Haha.

I'm missing so many people right now. Haven't seen so many of them in so long.

[ mood | cheerful ]

I went for my laser treatment(smoothing) this morning. Man, my face is burnt. Dr Tan did put the numbing cream, Elma. It didn't work too well ar. Still felt the sparks when the laser was performed. Ouch. I came out of the room with a beet-red face. So pai seh. Took a cab all the way home. Cost quite abit but ahh... can't let anyone see me in this condition.
But later we went to Pizza Hut at Bt. Timah Plaza. Shucks. Got so many stares sia. Come on lah... like that also stare. Nothing else to look at is it? Oh wells. After the numbness wears off, there's this prickly feeling all over my face. And I'm feeling so ugly.
I've been having a terrible cramp since yesterday. Ugh.

Man Utd won their second game in a row. Yay. I'm glad that Rio's back; with him, the defence is more composed and organized. Kudos to Ruud for scoring his first goal for the EPL season. Wooo... To Man Utd doubters, booyah. Haha.

Okies, better get to sleep. Not feeling too well.
Gd nite.

Ooh, I'm more excited watching other EPL teams play but when it comes to Man Utd, it gets terribly boring. Uh-oh. Haha.
My youngest sister found 3 kittens today. My dad somehow allowed her to care for it. I dislike cats, kittens... especially if they're stray. Oh wells. But the thing that made me so angry was when my sister made this comment, "Kak, you're a nurse right? Help me to clean the shit can?" Whoa! I flared up sia. No mercy. Anyways, she just said she needed help since the poo can't get cleaned... but she shouldn't have made that comment. I thought of all people, why her? Haiz.
I guess the misconception of a nurse is still there. That nursing is a dirty job. Only clean the arses of patients. Hello?! Of course we do that, if we don't clean the arses of our patients(those who can't do it for themselves), who will? But that's not all that we do so get that into your head. Nursing is so much more to that. Some people just can't be bothered to find out. Grr.

Ahh. Venting done. Hehe. But I won't let comments like that hurt me too much because I know my patients appreciate the care I've given them and that means the world to me. :)

Hehe. Yesterday I went to CGH. It was damn far but yeah I wanted to see the Dr. my friend recommended. I left my house at 2.45pm and I reached CGH at 4.25pm. Fuyoo~. Far. I'm going to get laser done next Saturday morning. Well it was my first visit to CGH and I like the hospital. Nice.
Last night I watched Sweet Home Alabama. You know, the typical storyline but kind of nice lah to watch this kind of movies sometimes. Haha. Makes you want to smile. :)
This morning, played tennis with my brother. Kenna trashed like hell but I have to say that I'm improving. He has improved alot since we last played against each other. And I'm getting tan. -__-
Currently I'm reading Band of Brothers by Stephen E. Ambrose. So far so good. I'm suprised that I'm enjoying a war-related book. Usually I tend to avoid reading these type of books. Haven't watched the HBO tv series.
Hmm... so bored.

Today was a pretty busy day. Went to the dentist. Had my retainers sent for repair. I'm told that I need surgery for my wisdom tooth that's growing out of place. Now, I have to decide where I want to have my surgery done. Most probably AH bah. Dr Lim said going to a govt. place will have subsidy compared to doing it at her clinic. So now must choose when I want to have it done because I will be on a 5 day MC after the op and I don't want to have it done during my attachment because then I'd have to do make-up on weekends. No no.
After that I headed to Novena Square to have my spectacles repaired. Haha they were shocked to see the condition of my spectacles. Beyond repair... so I made a new pair and it cost me $170. Ok lah not too bad. Had to wait for about an hour for it to get done. Headed home after that.
Watched the repeat of the Man U match because I fell asleep while waiting for the match to start last night hahaha. Messy.
Watched Singapore Idol Wildcard show just now. Ok lah. I expected Haizad the hottie haha(who doesn't think so?) to at least improve but he still seems to have cotton stuffed in his mouth. Oh wells... at least Sylvester Sim made it. Woo. I want to watch next week's episode on the Unsung Heroes. Not the careless whisper or whatever guy but I want to watch the malay guy(whose name I can't recall) who dedicated his song to his dad who passed away days before Idol started. His song just blew me away. I want to watch some others too who had the courage to overcome their speech problem... Yeah.
I can't sleep. My hols are going to end soon. I'll be posted to SGH next week for my Medical Posting.
Regarding studying abroad, I've found a few Universities that I can apply for... but the question is, do I want to go abroad and study and get my degree straight or do I want to take my Diploma in NYP first? Haiz.

[ mood | sad ]

I dunno why but I'm feeling kind of down today. Hmm... maybe it's because my chocolate chip cookies didn't turned out well? Yeah, I guess so. It taste so freaking different today. I'll make another batch tomorrow but with some different brand of flour haha.
I watched Seabiscuit just now. Borrowed the dvd from Razali from like, a month ago? Yeah, pretty draggy but it's a good show. "Everyone deserves a second chance." I believe so. You can't just give up on yourself. If you do, people will give up on you too. If you're given a second chance, make full use of it. Don't let it slip. Most likely, people don't because they will have already learnt their lesson. Yep. Talking from experience. :)
Been having a so-so week.
On Monday, I broke my new spectacles. Haha. Actually it was ran over by my brother's bike. I was his pillion, dropped my specs and it was history. It was my first time on a bike some more. What luck. BUt it was fun riding though, woo.
On Tuesday, I went to a nearby clinic to get my filling done. I didn't go to my dentist at Orchard area but it seems like I have to now. I'm told that my wisdom tooth is growing out of order and I need to go for an x-ray and from there, they will decide if I need to get it operated. Yep, it's that serious. And I need to bring my retainer for goodness sake. It's been almost a year since I wore/used that little thing. I'm so dead.
Today, nothing special except for my bloody cookies. *cries*
And plans for the days to come...
Tomorrow I'm going for my dental appointment. Yikes.
On Friday, I'll be going to CGH. I'll be seeing a dermatologist. The doctor was recommended to me by Shifa and Siti. It works wonders for Shifa, so why not travel all the way from the west side of S'pore to the other side haha. I'm excited.
On Saturday, will be playing tennis with my brothers and their friends. Haha. I'll be the photographer too.

I'm actually waiting to watch Lyons v Man U later at 2.30am on StarSports. Man U has been pretty out of form lately. Man, it might still be very early but they can actually say goodbye to the EPL title for this season... unless miracles do happen.

Inheritance. [12 Aug 2004|06:18pm]
[ mood | crappy ]

My uncle called just now. He's the artist of the family(maternal). I just realized that both maternal and paternal sides are creative. Either in art or music. And I did not inherit any of it. Not musically talented nor artistic. Hmm... my sister is artistic. But I guess I do inherit the talent for sports from both sides. Ahh... I'm glad but that took some time for me to try and link myself with them. Haha.

Oh wells. I better get back to completing my nursing care plan.

My dad fetched me home from work last night. I'm glad that he did as my legs were aching so much lol. Walking up and down the ward aimlessly at times but was very busy mostly. On the way back, my dad told me that he bought my mum a white diamond bracelet and ring. It's really pretty. Anyways, my dad asked me what I want to do when I graduate from ITE at the end of the year. I told him that I want to proceed to NYP and take Diploma in Nursing. He asked me whether I can gurantee being accepted into the course. I said, so far with my current results, I'm able to but I need to prove that I'm worth it to proceed with my attachment results. Then he asked me whether I want to do a Degree in Australia... What? Lol. He asked me to check it out and if he can afford it, he'll send me overseas. But then my plans will be spoiled. I need opinions and advice.

Today was a really busy day in the ward and I loved it. I love to be occupied rather than not as the time will pass quicker haha. I learned alot too.

Chapek is in Bahasa Indonesia. It means, tired. Lol.

I'm in the afternoon shift today which is such a drag lol. Anyways, I remembered a quote from Saturday's Summer Scent. "Coffee is like love. Sometimes it's bitter and at other times, sweet." True, huh?

Ok, really bored but I guess I'll go and do some reading up of my skills. Blog again tomorrow bah.
