Last Sunday was my first time in UMMC. Obstetric theatre to be exact. It was only my day two going into the theatre and I was already oncall. First four days in UMMC was the orientation days.. (Yup, we were so disorientated, UM and UMMC is so big and we are so lost!) Then Friday was day one in OT, Saturday is a public holiday and Sunday my first oncall day!
But thats how we roll. To be honest, despite all the experience of working, moving to a new place and unfamiliarity with the system definitely stressed me up. I forgot where the maternity building is, I had to google Gloria Jeans UM to find the building. All I can remember is the coffee place! My goodness!
After hours of stressing up for no reason, S brought B and T to the hospital to visit mommy.. There’s a playground next to maternity building so they can play there. Tasha had too much fun. She refused to stay still, all I get is this blurry pictures of her busy playing…
And that’s B, eating dinner with mommy. Yup we had a picnic at the playground.
Their laughter definitely cheered me up. Now no more stress. Hahahaha..
S said I mengada-ngada ;) As if you don’t know me, S..
Owh, and guess what.. I’m oncall again today. But feeling much much better!
Guess what.. I’m starting my old new life, as a student! But this time, even worse, working and studying at the same time. *insert cry here* .. as if my plate is not full enough.
I’ve moved to UMMC to further my study. This is my first week, orientation week to be exact, hence the extra time to write to all of you ;) So far, it has all been great. The distance from home, the colleagues, the choice of food thats available inside and around hospital (if I had the time to go and eat! ;) ), coffee place (yup, that’s a criteria for a good hospital!)..
But the toughest of all is to fight for parking spot!! Hahaha… common issues in all government hospital I guess. The parking area is probably 1km away from the faculty. I’m saying goodbye to my heels. Hello flat shoes and owh.. Umbrella! Hahah.. I can’t believe I actually googled “pretty umbrella” and believe me there’s quite a number of pretty umbrella out there. All my life I only knew my dad’s golf umbrella! :D
Another solution to my parking problem is to get my husband to send me to work! Great! He can drop me at the hospital before going to work, and fetch me later in the evening. You know.. with the bike.. so we can be like the couple in that 80’s movie… Ali Setan!! Hahaha…
Gosh! So many new things going on with my life right now. I’m adjusting to it.. What I know for sure.. I miss this bunch from Selayang Hospital. That place is more that a work place to me. Selayang Anaesthesia Department is like my second family..
These are just part of them, more family members not in the picture.. Selayang people.. I know you miss me too… or maybe not! Wahahahahha..
Wish me luck!
Bella is at the age where she will ask “Why this? What that?” Oh my.. that’s really a lot of why-s..
One day, she saw me running after a cockroach in the toilet with a cockroach spray. Then she asked me, “Mommy, why you spray that thing to the cockroach?” Then I explained to her that I wanna kill a cockroach I saw in the bathroom.. Innocently she asked my permission to hold the spray can herself. So, I let her..
Bella: WOW!! This spray can kill cockroach!! Awesome!!!
Me: Yeah, it works, you know!!
Bella: Do you use this to kill elephant too?
Hahahahaha.. I was speechless. I really don’t want to hurt her feelings by laughing out loud..
To Fumakilla people.. my daughter asked whether your spray can be use to kill elephant too?
Some of you might know that B and T goes to Mandarin class apart from their daily school. They really love their Mandarin lessons. Sometimes they sing Mandarin song at home.. Mommy just go lalala pretend to understand..
At the class, whenever they can memorise a Mandarin word in Chinese characters, they get to bring back the flash card for that word.. So far, Bella has these much of cards..
I’m very proud of her considering I know none of the words!! Haha.. every time we do revision at home, she will correct my pronunciation :D
Every. Single. Time!!
And last week, for the first time… Tasha got her flash cards!! Woohooooo!!
I know it’s only two but at least she memorise those two words!! My little Tasha can memorise two Mandarin words!!! *happy tears* And this kiasu lady (a.k.a mommy) keep testing her at home, just to make sure she really memorise the words, not just by luck!! Hahaha..
Mommy is so proud of you, Little Tasha!!
I don’t have any interesting story to write.. But I just feel like writing today..
I hope all of you are doing great and having a great weekend with school holiday coming soon.. You know what that means.. That means less traffic in the morning!! Yesss!!
I just wanna share with you my new app discovery. It’s called Aftership, available free from AppStore. Im really not sure about Android phone.
Why this app is amazing? Because you can use it for parcel tracking… Yeah, thats important for online shoppers, right?! ;) It can detect almost all the courier company in the world.
I tried local parcel, from the UK, USA and also China. It works!! You just have to key in the tracking number of your parcel and it will tell you the current status and location of your parcel. In detail!!
The most exciting part is when I see the status “On vehicle for delivery” That means I have to alert the guards at our house NOT to pass my parcel to my husband when it arrives :D Handy, right!!
So, yeah.. I thought it might be useful for some of you too!!
Mamatuk came to visit her grandchildren at our house. She asked my little T…
Mamatuk : Tasha, where’s daddy?
Tasha : Aeroplane.. (she thinks her daddy is outstation)
Mamatuk : Where’s your mommy?
Tasha : Shopping!
That’s my child there, people!!
Happy Mother’s Day to all mommies out there. I know I’m like a little late.. but I did not forget!! Happy Mother’s Day to my mother, she is definitely the best mom I can ever wish for. I may not realised this when I was a kid.. but now, I know what she did for me is pure love. May Allah grant her with Jannah. Ameen…
I hope all of you had a great Mother’s Day weekend :)
The day before Mother’s Day, I was oncall. Many sad things happened. A mother of 3 passed away because of dengue. Another lady who just gave birth to her first child passed away due to unforeseen circumstances.. It’s just a crazy busy and extremely depressing call for me and my colleagues. I can’t imagine what their children had to go through. They will be traumatise every Mother’s Day thinking their mother passed away one day before Mother’s Day.. The day that they should celebrate with joy and love turned into a funeral of their own mother. MasyaAllah… May Allah grant these mothers’ Jannah..
When I got home the next day.. I got a little surprise from my girls.. They made a card for me! It’s not big. Nothing fancy but I really touched my heart. I think my heart skipped a beat when I read the card that B made for me..
She is only three turning four in July.. Forgive her attempts to draw a person there..! I think the tall yellow person is me and the short orange girl is her.. and That little one down the card is little T! Haha.. I think it’s cute (I’m bias I know.. Haha..)
And T made this…
Well, it’s actually a 3D paper flower in a pot!! She doesn’t know how to write as yet.. but she crumples really well! Hahahah..
And with that.. They just made my day..
