Hey guys, its been a hectic week for me, with gawai and all (i actually had to be on call during 2nd day of gawai :( ) I didn't do anything for gawai, just went to kampung for dinner. Kampung is quiet these days cos all my cousins are not around. Everybody seems to be working in kl these days. Postcall day was good because my favourite registrar happened to be on call too. I am going off on a 4 day holiday to kl today, i really need the break because O n G is really hectic, and the oncalls are worse than paeds on call. i haven't lost any weight yet, because when i am stressed i tend to eat more.
Since i don't have much time to update my blog, i've logged on to twitter, in the hopes that i can be more 'rajin' to post up stuff. it will still be the same add: sarahsmalady.
Off for my spending spree holiday!!

current favourite songs of mine:

Altimet- Chantek

Jason Mraz- Make it mine

Lady Gaga- Just Dance

Lalah Hathaway- Let go

Joss stone and smokey robinson- you're the one for me

My laptop died on me last week,and its damned frustrating that i can't upload new songs/videos or upload my fave programs to my ipod. I think if it really can't be fixed i'll try to ask my dad if i can get a new laptop, i can't survive with the old pc at home!

A new posting

I've officially ended my paediatrics posting last saturday, going out on a bang with my last oncall (which also happened to be the 2nd busiest night of all). I'm glad that i went through my first posting without any problems, but also sad because i'm leaving my colleagues and MO's. YOu know, the first time i heard i was going to be in paeds, i felt like crying because everyone says paeds is bad, you;ll get extended bla bla but, i'm actually really sad to be leaving it. the MO's became nice to me from the 3rd month onwards, and the current housemans that are in paeds are really nice to work with. I'll be going to O n G next (they recently extended a houseman for 4 months) and i am more scared of this posting than i am with paeds. got some garang MO's there, and the fact that i have to be extremely vigilant with my CTGs and labour room hecticness.....thank god i'm still having my leave. i'll be startin fresh again this coming thursday (hate tagging ) and luckily for me i have another houseman from paeds there. I hate tagging alone.
Yesterday out of boredom, i went for a drive to Lundu with my family. I love going out for a drive, and i've been thinking of going for a drive to santubong, just for the heck of it. Lundu has a hospital, with only 2 MO's there. Don't think i want to work there, i prefer a hospital with more MO's. I finally went to Pandan beach, i've never been there my entire life. The beach is relatively clean, not much of human rubbish, mostly driftwood and coconuts. The sand is really sandy, not like the beaches you get in bako or pasir pandak, where its mixed with mud. The view is also amazing. it was high tide when i arrived at the beach and i didn't have time to bathe. the other reason was because there were sandflies at the beach and i hate getting bitten by one of those.
I went to watch Fast n Furious 4 yesterday, and its the same old stuff. Vin diesel still looks hot as ever :) My dad says Spring might have tgv sometime soon, so i don't know how the other 2 cinemas in kuching are gonna compete.

Show me the money

Its been a month that i've been working in Nursery. It has also been a week since i've been the maternity houseman. That means i was covering the labour ward, OT and maternity wards. I x mind the first two, but i hate covering maternity. They refer all sorts of cases to me. The frequent ones are undescended testes and wide suture lines. I find it amusing that some of them can't palpate testes, and frankly i find it a waste of my time. As for wide suture lines, sometimes even i have a problem trying to differentiate between a normal skull and those with a real wide suture line. And being the maternity houseman can be very tiring. THere was one day when i had to attend to 8 OT cases, so i had to go back at 9pm that night. it is also hell when you are post call and you have to do your maternity rounds. i think i will miss the nusery after this, i have gotten used to the place, and will be sorry to leave the place.
I went on a shopping spree today after finally getting my pay for 2 months. The feeling of seeing so much cash in my bank account takes away most of the depression that i get during my work. i bought 2 trousers and a new blouse, since i am in the process of losing weight....and also lots of cereal for the mornings.
I finally went to try out the restaurant in town called Jambu. it serves western and tapas food. I loved the ambience of the place, its an old converted bungalow. its nice for couples to have dinner there. The food is ok, no different from any other place. it made me feel like i was somewhere overseas, like australia. the owner of the place is a new zealander who married a local. There is also a bar for those who need a drink.
I didn't do much for chinese new year, i had to work on that day, and my parents didn't do much of house visiting. I hate post CNY cos most babies get delivered, so we see a lot more babies with health problems. Hopefully this month there's not much of babies getting delivered.....
I also saw the prequel movie to Underworld...rhona mitra is so-so in her role, but i find the actor who played her lover quite hot,especially with that leather outfit :) otherwise i preferred the first underworld movie.

Its the end with a new beginning

i can't believe its a day away from a new year. time flies so fast that you don't realize it. i am still pissed with my maxis-celcom transfer. its been 6 days and i havent been able to use my 012 at all. 6 days....that's a long time and i can imagine how many smses i have yet to answer. tomorrow i am ordering my brother to go to celcom to resolve the issue. i cant go out during lunch time,its too packed. i enjoyed my christmas eve dinner with my family, i hogged all the turkey bones as usual. I recieved a case of Benefit brushes, and a benefit eyecolor package from my mother. my brother gave me a self made calender. in it he put the ugliest pic of me that he could find, and the rest of the calender was full of pictures of himself looking his best. aisey....what to do,he made the calendar himself so i just have to accept. i went back to kpg the next day....and i recorded my nephew dancing like mad to 3 iban songs. He's a cute fella, he twists his body like a cacing when he dances, its entertaining to watch.
i had my first oncall on 26th.i had 6 cases, and i didn't sleep or eat dinner cos i was kinda slow, and too many blood investigations to do. i'm sure others would have had worse oncalls than me, and the next day after work i just crashed on the sofa sleeping like a dead log. its scary and exciting to be oncall. the only thing is to be kinda careful when to inform the mo about the cases. my mo for the night got kinda irritated by midnite, probably cos i was kinda slow in doing work and he was getting sleepy. i am dreading passive call in the nursery, that place is scary.
well, whatever it is, i am anticipating new years eve, and after that its just the monotonous everyday routine of waking up early and coming back from work. i have already sorta planned my dream vacation in two years time- christmas and new years in either US or Vancouver. i miss the cold and the snow and the real xmas feeling. so i told my bro that i would like to see snow again...and i am so going to work hard and save money for my snowy xmas.
