Postcard from The Ex*


Voila! This is what I found in the mailbox today!

What a pleasant surprise!

Yes, he is on another of his "I am gonna make the world a better place!" mission trips again! He's on a roll!

BTW is it normal for one's BF and the Ex to be "friends on facebook" and actually talk more to each other than to me at the dinnertable? Just outta curiosity. LOL

*Guess it's probably time to give him an proper nickname?

*THIS IS POST 201!!! Wow...

I Confess My Sins

Forgive me Lord. For I have misbehaved.

I think I have a crush on my Orthopaedics lecturer.

Being part of his ward team for 3 weeks is... ah heaven! I admit that I been practically stalking him around in the operation theatre, clinic, wards, office blablabla (with a few fangirls).

To learn from his expertise lo, why else? ;)

Oh btw, he is rather young. Leonardo Dicaprio-ish hair. Killer sepet eyes.

This one can pass as his half-brother, maybe!

Just a few days ago, we had this super duper mega over-the-top b*tchy difficult patient who came in with olecranon bursitis due to playing too much badminton (yeah right).

OMG this uncle damn the WTF (pardon my interesting-reference-to-a-KL-Motor-Vehicle-Number-Plate), being cocky and complaining about the whole public health sector (yes it's kinda flawed but we work around the bumps right?)!!!

The whole team ie. nurses-medstudents (ME!)-interns-registrars also cannot stand and rolled eyes at each other and I swear this houseman (namesake of the Head of the Commonwealth) gestured for us to slap this uncle's face!
And yes, he was very rude to Cute-Ortho-Lecturer as well. KNNCCB! But ahhh, Cute-Ortho-Lecturer spoke to him very patiently and appeased him by just poking a needle into his elbow. I was WOW-ed! Everybody left happy (okay, maybe we still b*tched about this case). THE END.

Respectful. Caring. Gregarious. Patient. Non-drama. Fantabulous teacher!

Nice package indeed.

We're even 'friends' on Facebook!

Too bad he is married... to a woman. And yes, I think the wife's pretty hawt.


But aaahhh... I love Orthopaedics now. No, I do not have any indecent ideations OKEH!

This isn't half as bad as the cases I see in the wards. Ouch!

Hello Mr. Oncologist!

Haha just found out you read my blog too! [Not that I am a regular one at that!] What a surprise, nonetheless!

Ah well guess I have one less person to bitch about here. LOL just kidding. I think you are nice.

Take this photo as a welcoming gift to you.

3.5kg MALT mass with peritoneal adhesions.

Like we discussed the other night, some people can be likened to malignancy; pure sinister sometimes hiding in deepest crevices that they think they will not be discovered.

But hell yeah we can (OKAY, primarily your job); we hunt, we locate. We excise and incinerate!

Oops sorrry! The photo got me too enthralled; I can still recall the whole procedure. Skin-to-skin: 18 minutes. How the tumour felt in my gloved hands. Lumpy-bumpy, humpty-dumpty.

And likewise, the good shall emerge victorious. Maybe not me. But definitely not the vile.

Another Perspective

Maybe another life, another path is what I really need.

Right now.

I am not really sure whether this is what I signed up for.

Gah. Life. Such a job.

Hello 2010!

Somehow I can't believe it's a new year already! Heck, it's the start of a new decade.

Goodbye Noughties!

Oooh boy! What a year 2009 has been!

My choice of keywords for Oh-Nine would be: drama, scandals, bitching, perseverance and blood.

Looking back on the year, it did not have a lack of trials and tribulations, oh bah-humbug, along with some wholesome good fun. Insufficiency of the latter, IMHO.

Got a new nickname - "The HO".

So don't trust me!

Started clinical training.

Getting my self-esteem crushed and rebuilt on a daily basis. Serving my pride to the (some) ruthless Dato/Datin/Prof/Consultants for breakfast.

But all is good. I am surviving and thriving (even if just a little).

Small glimpse of my future career path.

"You are born to be an obstetrician. You have nice long fingers. Good to palpate the sacral promontory." (aka good at poking vajayjays)

"You should consider doing orthopaedics. You have the stature. Not like your friend here." *points at a shorter classmate* LOL

"You are so full of yourself. Try pursuing General Surgery."

In all honesty, I prefer surgical-based specialties. Love working with my hands. And I doubt I have the intelligence to be an internist. Time will tell.

Ate and ate and ate. Exercise no enough.

FAT FAT FAT! Need to restart my stepping/yoga/pilates/regular running.

Yes, I will start after my finals in a month's time. LOL

Travelled quite a bit.

5 visits to Singapore in a year. Oh and that one day trip down south just to catch STOMP!

Had surgery done.

Pain. Propofol is such a b*tch!

Ugly scar. Borderline keloid.

Taken 3 days post-op.

Bought myself a new celly!

Okay, mummy's pressie actually! LOL
Farewell w900i baby! It has been a good 3.5 years with you!

Got some kinky presents for my birthday this year!

Passion Fruit Flavour!

Bade farewell to some buddies (who left for overseas: various reasons).

As One Tree Hill says, "People always leave."

But then again, these people are pretty much indispensable.

Heck, my phone has equal UK/US/Aus/NZ/Singapore SMS-es/occasional phone calls to the local ones I make these days. Still getting regular snailmail and surprise packages. Love love love!

Hello to new darling friends!

Well, you know who you are. And you know I love you guys like porn chocolates and alcohol!


Our Xmas Tree!

And a special shoutout to the newest peepz I met at the NYE party alrighty! *winks*

40 months and counting...

This year wasn't particularly easy on the relationship. But we are still holding on.

Am happy :)
