The most memorable event this week was graduation. Just didnt have the time to write about it. Commencement 2008. What an apt term! This two months at work has taught me that this journey which I have embarked on is just the beginning. The VERY beginning of everything. Indeed like what my medicine tutor told me in year three of med school:
"Truly MBBS is the PSLE of medicine. You aint seein nothin yet and it aint over till it's over"
Well, it felt good to have at least gotten over PSLE (once again). Haha
The ceremony meant lots more to my family i guess. Something they've been looking forward to for a long time. As for me, it's kinda sad that I didnt have that sense of overwhelming emotions as I walked up the stage. Not as much as when I received my results after the finals. What I felt was more of happiness and satisfaction cos I had the chance to make my parents happy.
The phototaking subsequently was fun. Felt like a star. Haha.....
So, back to waking up at 4.45 am. Sighz...... Looking forward to the next break already. Haah.
Holidays are NEVER enough....

I woke up this morning to see the clear blue sky..... Just lay in bed, basking in the sunshine for a few minutes before scrambling to find my handphone. It was 7.30 am. Morning ward rounds would have started. I smiled to myself. No waking up at 4.30am, barely being able to grab breakfast, catching the 1st bus just so that I can reach work on time do the most impt task : Updating 'THE LIST'. Checking and rechecking to make sure that patients are not missed out, that the bed numbers are correct, that the latest blood results are updated.Haiz..... No more of that at least for week. Feels really good! Itz a well deserved break especially after the month at colorectal - days starting at 6/630 and ending at 1030 or later. It was a very tiring month but I really enjoyed the posting n learnt a lot. I realised how much of a difference a gd working environtment can make. People think I'm crazy but ya I still do miss working there.
Anyway, itz the BREAK finally! I was so looking forward to it! :D gonna make full use of it ;) Haha.....
