A series of fortunate events

A rare day out on Gaya Street, KK.
A series of fortunate events - 1st there were only 3 admissions during my time, then I get to sleep on a bed for an hour, then when asked for permission to be excused fr the entire morning round, my MO permitted. And Kuan Yew was free and so here we were having breakfast on a windy saturday on Gaya street.

Borneo: Half a Year

Almost half a year into this new place and a month into a new, crazy posting. Because of shortage of housemen that is plaguing this department since I joined it, I've been running around like a crazy man every day ( and night ) but let's talk about something happy.  I derive satisfaction from knowing that I've done my job well, even if it's just blood taking and making sure I could provide most of the information my bosses want so that the rounds could be finished faster. But what made me feel touched is when patients say thank you to me, ask me if i've rested/eaten etc, and when i know them by name, when their caretakers call out to me enthusiastically. But a lot of the time I feel frustrated at the system, the lack of time/resources/technology that we have here, but mostly from my shallow knowledge and poor memory.
okie, gotta study before my night shift =)
