Happy CNY... Year of Rooster

This year is the year of Rooster.

Because I took some leave in December, and left a few more weeks in acute stroke team, I dare not ask for more leave.

Therefore, when the CNY mood arrived, I was so emotionally down.
Felt left out once more.
I want to be at home, eating reunion dinner with my fambam.
Although we dun do much, it is still a nice sense of happiness, being surrounded by loved ones.

So this year, I didn't get to go back.
Reunion dinner, spent at home, eating pasta myself after a long day at work.
Managed to squeeze in a gym class at least. Felt better post work out.

Then Saturday came, the BIG 1st day of celebration.
Put on my red shirt.
Off I went to Lily's House for our annual reunion... just the 3 of us.
Steamboat it was.
Went and watch LaLa Land prior to dinner. It's been a very time since we went for a movie together.
It was a good movie, as expected. But ending was a whee bit unexpected but it was reality.
Lily felt it too.

"There was once, you both had big dreams. You share it with your very loved one. You encouraged each other to pursue that dream. And when opportunities come, you grabbed it, worked hard for it, pursued it, achieved it BUT.... the person whom you shared your dream with is no longer the same.... Life, moves on. You wished you could turn back that clock, you wished the outcome would be a different ending of happy ever after. Reality is a complete different ending unfortunately..... "

Anyway, it was still a nice movie, with sweet musical songs..... and telling you to chase your dreams, NO MATTER WHAT!

Our reunion dinner. Yums

Trio, sisters in Manchester since 2008.
Red is the ANG ANG colour for CNY.

Have a blessed year ahead, all.
Dearest daughters( us 3) didn't get to go back this year, but our hearts are with you all.
Love and blessings.

GurlieS SaturDate

Been busy with work recently.
Ward has been really busy but it was good.

Counting down days to change over now.
Oh dear, am not really looking forward to be fair.
The Chedders and Gowie's team hmmm.... no idea how I will work with them.
Lord, please grant me patient heart.

Anyway, managed to squeeze an afternoon off to have some yummy food with Janice and Joyce.
It was 50% off, so great deal this :)

The few things we shared. They come in Tapas style.
This sharing platter with fried seafood. Yums

My favourite dish. The Tuscan fish stew with clams and mussels. Very fresh!

And our beloved dessert was THIS. Bomb! Pistachio cake. Seriously good stuff!

Finally, a group pic of us :)

Great day out. A long needed break.
Laughs and chats.
All done.

Back to Lancaster.
Serious work starts tomorrow.

TOP of the mountain

Feeling extremely GREAT today because I have achieved something that never happened to me for the SO MANY Lumbar Puncture performed since CMT 1!

When the lady from the lab called me....
I kinda like..SSHOCKED in disbelief!
Wow..... CHAMPAGNE Tap this!
Literally want to fly. Hahaha
HAPPY daoo...

Anyway, been a real busy day today with TIA patients in clinic. But Dr Kumar been a great help.
We cleared them up quick, did a ward round in CCU and then off I went to do this LP.

Then the nightmare news of x2 of my SHOs called in sick!😭 Which means, I will be the FY1, SHO, Registrar and maybe some senior input elsewhere. 1 man show this! Terrible...for the whole ward.

Worse thing that could happen on a Monday morning. No wonder today is labelled as Black Monday. but thank God, I survived. Things were done accordingly and no patients were compromised. We managed.
When you start off the day right, surrendering everything into His mighty hands. Things will turn out FINE. Today is a great day. ** I was a bit stress about doing the LP initially. But hey ho, managed it with my first attempt anyway. GREAT!

wasSup Doc: Everyday is a new day that the Lord has made, we shall rejoice in it! Thank You Lord :)

Greetings of 2017

A new resolution for 2017, I guess.
To re-start writing or pen down some thoughts of mine.

Hello world.
It has been a while since my last entry.

Out of curiosity and so revisited the blog I started in 2006 and wow, it still allows me to log in and so, here is it. Writing the 1st post of 2017.

Probably nobody reading it now but hey ho, who cares, a personal read for myself 10 years down the road then.

10 years ago, it was a gungho moment to start writing.
All my beloved Uni mates were writing actively and so I joined the bandwagon of doing so. *NO REGRETS :)*

10 years later, I read all those posts I wrote and realised the importance of penning stuff down and see how much I have grown. emotionally, physically and spiritually.

A little bit of wrinkles here and there, but that just telling me that I have been through up and down.
Here I am, still alive and well, by God's amazing grace.

Goodbye 2016. Hello 2017
