Etta James

At Last

At last
My love has come along

My lonely days are over
And life is like a song

Ohh yeah yeah
At last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Ohh yeah yeah…
You smile, you smile
Ohhh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

I've been missing the past more than anything else lately. Most of the time I found myself crying for no reason. Depression? Nahh! I need to get over 'it' SOON. Fingers crossed.

Dear Diary.

"I wanna talk to him again...but..
whenever he is with his friends
he keeps trying to pretend
but I've already see
the way he feels for me...."

I was in plastic Outpatient today and spent most of my morning admiring Dr. John- I can pretty much say at this point that I am kind of attracted to him. He is so COOL and RELAX - which is totally opposite of my "ALL OVER THE PLACE" nature- people do say OPPOSITE ATTRACTS. Point taken. He jokes around when I least expect it; hehehe..totally funny. (I LIKE!)

Then I decided to follow Mr McCann for the rest of the afternoon alongside five other students plus an intern (!!) in and out of four different rooms in the Outpatient department. Mr McCann loves having students trailing behind him as he attend to each patients; plus he really is a GREAT teacher. He teaches a lot-and asked A LOT of questions too! Heh.

During one of the Q&A sessions, my brain was forced to come out with some answers and he wouldn't take "I can't remember" as a reply. My face was blushing hot as 10 pairs of eyes (including the patients') was looking straight at me, waiting for me to explain about "TRIGGER FINGER". Glad I'd got over it, still fully intact...though my ego was a bit bruised -but nothing major that I can't bounce back from! (at the end of the day 'Seborrhoeic keratosis' gave me a reason to smile!)

At one point, Mr McCann was attending to one little boy; about 6-7 years of age. He had his left ear bandaged and as well as his upper lip and nose. As Mr McCann took off the bandages, the deformities made clear. He had his cleft palate repaired and possibly an insertion of a small plastic ventilation tube in the eardrum to allow proper drainage and air circulation as cleft can interfere with the function of the middle ear. When the bandages were off, the boy asked if he can see himself in front of the mirror. Mr McCann said, "Go ahead"- and I could never ever forget the expressions on his face as he sees the mirror for the first time. He looked so RELIEF- constantly moving his head up, down and to the right side while checking his well intact left ear, nose and lips ; he looked SURPRISE too, but most importantly was he looked so HAPPY! He joyously said "THANK YOU!!" to Mr McCann. Awhhhh..indescribable feelings of warmth suddenly rushing within and I feel like crying.. at that moment I am so inspired to become a plastic surgeon. Hehe..

Met A LOT of really GOOD LOOKING patients again this week. OMG, seems like plastics outpatient clinics are always full of them. Mind you, they are not in for any plastic surgery, face lifts or anything like that! One had splinter on the right arm of which need the bandages changed , one had keloid scar on the chest who wants it removed, one had some kind of accident involving his right index, middle and ring fingers which need the be x-rayed and reviewed. There you go, full report of my outpatient activity for today. :)

So Much, I Learnt

I'd learnt so much today; the doctors are so well trained and they had been setting up really good examples that are so useful for our future practice; for example:
1) NEVER ask for patient's consent
2) NEVER listen to the patients, besides they knew NOTHING right?
3) HELP SPREADING MRSA by touching everyone and everything and DON'T BOTHER to use the available alcohol gel to disinfect your hands
4) FORCE patients to comply on physical examination even when they said they're in excruciating pain
5) POKE, PRODE and HUMILIATE patients like they're dummies for learning purposes or just useless broken things that were sent to be fixed by remarkable doctor's skills, thus satisfy our ego
6) JUST LEAVE the patient in pain and head on to the next one!

Now, where did I put my Tally and O' Connor book...?

p/s: happy birthday Sarinah!

I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you..

Mariah Carey - All I want For Christmas is You-

I went shopping alone in Dunnes early this evening. Found myself struggling to resist the temptation of buying those half prized chocolates which are neatly arranged-color, size and prize coded..hehe...seems to me like they are. A few minutes later, I found myself running away from the chocolate isles, empty handed. Obviously I manage to get a grip of reality, thank God-I am gaining up on some few kilos-which I NEED to shed quickly.

On the way to and from Dunnes, I had to face another temptation. One single house that I apt to give a quick peek each time I walk pass by. Proudly saying I wasn't looking at it at all. It's so unusual when something as simple as this gave me so much satisfaction.

Plastics Outpatients today with Mr. McCann - I met three guys suffer from partial, and deep burns. Two of them were the victims of plane crash in Phuket few months back (remember it was in the news??). I've read about the accidents a few times before, but I never thought that I would meet the survivors in person. One of them is SO GOOD LOOKING!- but doctors should have nothing to do with patients. Full stop.

Looking at too much "Dupuytren's contracture" - I can't help but to remember the first time I've ever heard of such a thing, and think..I was so young and naive, and such a fool! =)

p/s: David Gray is such a wonderful singer isn't he?

Yesterday was my 22nd birthday. OMG 22! Amira was shrieking, "You just hit 22, but I'm going to be 23 in THREE months!".

It's funny how most guys would consider increasing age as a sign of maturity and proud of it; while ladies would want to be 16 forever. Yeah, I want to be 16 forever..tsk.. My mom would always brag on how people kept saying she looks so in her 30's when she is actually 48 this year. I was mistakenly taken as her sister when we're seen in public together (I hate it when it happens-which is frequent enough).

Somehow today I kept thinking...owh, I am getting so old...I am dying..(with this unresolved pyrexia, I couldn't help but to think just that). Okay, I am going to the health unit sometimes soon.

Went to A&E today to fix the hematoma underneath the nail of my right big toe. It was causing so much pain since Saturday, I thought I should do something about it. Plus I was hoping that I would see Dr. Matt around-unfortunately he was nowhere to be seen. Mr. Martin was putting the usual wicked smile that I am so used to as soon as he saw my toe (Note: Mr. Martin is the A&E consultant). With a lighter, a paper clip and few gauzes later there was a hole in my nail and SUCH A RELIEF for my agony! Note: do not kick opponent's foot when you're playing football just because you hate the team.

The only sign of maturity that I could see on me right now are these fine lines underneath my baggy eyes. Mature? Eye cream please!

Gossip: somebody in class kept asking me if I fancy certain someone in class.

I'm tired of fancying anyone right now...geeez..I AM getting old!!
