Exams Out! Attachment In =)

Filed Under (Blog News, JY Chia, Updates) by JY Chia on 07-05-2008

Wow! Exams are out and attachment is in!

I recall using this title previously too =)

I used to have attachment at Tan Tock Seng Hospital,
for a change this time round I am posted to
Singapore General Hospital.

Confession!

I believe my skills are rusty and it needs D40 to
polish it =) I believe that it is high time to polish
up the clinical skills not only for the attachment
but I think it is life skills too =)

I will be blogging when there is any interesting
to share because I will be busy with attachment
and internet business projects.

And I am growing horizontally!! Time to STRETCH
and play games! =) For me personally I enjoy sports
in teams as compared to individual running etc.

Oh and kick boxing sure does sweat you out!

Alright getting back to work and play, going to
pig aka sleep well to prepare for the upcoming
attachment.

I love you all and if you have any urgent matters
please email me directly or call or sms me.

That’s all for now, till the next post…

Oh and Happy Mothers’ Day in advance to
all mummies reading this blog and have
fun and go out and make a difference!

The Last Lecture + Updates!

Filed Under (Blog News, JY Chia, Updates) by JY Chia on 28-04-2008

FIRST…A quick update =)

1. Pharmacology is WOW!
Okay…pray for me yeah…

2. And I get a BIGGER WOW!
For no reason, I am having SORE EYES! Eewww!!!
And I am suspecting its the lab tables where we had
our pharmacology paper.

I know I should take responsibility for rubbing my eyes!
Booo…
But yes! I am officially down with SORE EYES and I rushed
down to a clinic after dinner and accompanied by my dearest
buddy down to a clinic that opens till 10pm!

So that’s taken care off, I am on eye drops etc.

3. The Last Lecture

I was first exposed to this as a 21st birthday present,
it is a book that I get from my good friends in secondary.

Lindsay, Karene & Hwee Teng.

I finished the book within 2 days.

It is a book about Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams…

NOW, you do not have to spend 2 days to read the book,
it certainly worth the time…If you MUST! If You still have
dreams that excites you or you need a reminder that life
is not only about work or study….

I want to share with you a youtube link that I found about
the actual lecture recored.

Here is Randy Pausch with the Last Lecture:
[Just for you to know that this is in deed THE Last Lecture
for this young professor because he is diagnosed with
Pancreatic Cancer and is told that there is only about 6 healthy
months to come…]

He is still alive! =)
Here is his blog >> http://download.srv.cs.cmu.edu/~pausch/news/index.html

My dear friends and readers to this blog, I want to share with you…
The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams
By Randy Pausch

Let me know what you think, let’s
achieve our childhood dreams.

Are you ready to bring down the brick wall or
find a way to climb over?

Have a great week ahead!

Oops =) Barcadi Coke Taste Good!

Filed Under (Blog News, JY Chia, Updates) by JY Chia on 06-04-2008

A few days back, small aunt took
my sis, big aunt, grandma and myself
to Long Beach at Raffles Hotel.

I think I must have bee living in ice
age or something…

My first time to Raffles Hotel, very colonial
feel and grandeur…

Anyway, the main purpose was to give a shot
at the alcohols. For good fun =)

My aunt shared with us that her first alcoholic
drink was Barcadi Coke…

So that was what I had:

Barcadi Coke
The transparent liquid on the left
is Barcadi and on the right is coke.

So what you have to do it mix
them together and stir it.

Nice =)

And we ordered a few other drinks…
which includes Singapore Sling, erm
and two others that I don’t remember
the names…mosquito sound alike..haha..

Drinks

Ohh…and this is one of the few places where
you openly litter the floors with the shells
of ground nuts which are served.

And one interesting lingo that I learned was
how the waiter will ask….

“Madam, would you like to keep the tap running
or close it?”

What he meant was, do you want to close the
bill now or have more drinks.

My aunt promptly handed her card over and
say to him to, “hold it”.

And she explained that this is to ensure that you
don’t run away without paying for your drinks.

Nice place, nice ambience, nice drinks… =)

Thanks aunt!

The Guy In The Glass

Filed Under (Blog News, JY Chia, Updates) by JY Chia on 04-04-2008

Enjoy the poem:

The Guy in the Glass
By Dale Wimbrow, (c) 1934

When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,

And the world makes you King for a day,

Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,

And see what that guy has to say.

For it isn’t your Father, or Mother, or Wife,

Who judgement upon you must pass.

The feller whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the guy staring back from the glass.

He’s the feller to please, never mind all the rest,

For he’s with you clear up to the end,

And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test

If the guy in the glass is your friend.

You may be like Jack Horner and “chisel” a plum,

And think you’re a wonderful guy,

But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum

If you can’t look him straight in the eye.

You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,

And get pats on the back as you pass,

But your final reward will be heartaches and tears

If you’ve cheated the guy in the glass.

This wonderdul poem can be found on >>

A PIE For You?

Filed Under (Blog News, JY Chia, Updates) by JY Chia on 31-03-2008

it just crossed my mind to share with you
this formula that I learned when I was
doing my nursing course in polytechnic.

It is termed: APIE

Assesment
Planning
Implementation
Evaluation

It is used in nursing processes and I think
it is relevant for our day to day functioning.

Hope you find it useful =)

Have You Been Donating?

Filed Under (Blog News, JY Chia, Updates) by JY Chia on 29-03-2008

This is a video created by an internet
friend, Roy. You can visit his blog at
www.RoyPhay.com

Watch it:

Instead of jars, I have 6 envelopes =)

And I have just donated slightly more then
$100.00 to a local charity =)

I think if it has not been this sharing, I wouldn’t
have had the discipline to do it!

Cheers! I hope you have learned something from
this video, because I certainly had =)
