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 =)

have had the discipline to do it!

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

Easter Day Service At Riverlife

Filed Under (Blog News, JY Chia, Updates) by JY Chia on 25-03-2008

I was invited by my nursing friend
to her church’s special Easter Day
service the on the recent good
Friday.

Religion aside, i respect all religions.
Period.

I wanted to give a thumbs up up up
for the Drama called the Eternity.

Easter Day

I think the effect, sound and overall
transition from scene to scene
is remarkable.

And nurses roles are involved, so
naturally it made it more interesting
to watch.

And there is a scene where the doctor
reveals the laboratory findings to the
patient.

She must have studied therapeutic communication!

She performed all the solar:

S- Sitting squarely
O- Open gesture
L- Lean forward
A- Eye contact
R- Relax

Important skills for effective communication.

Best Experiences With Great Nurses Buddies At NYP =)

I have always read in newspaper column interviewing
celebrities or guest speaker if given a chance what will
they want to change in their lives?

What will be your answer?

This will be mine:
“Absolutely NOTHING! Whatever has happened to me is a blessing
in a way or two, everything that happens is my teacher and I have
got a personal take to share with you and that is, to enjoy your
present each day! Read The Present! Because each day is a present,
each person you meet is a present.

You may not like everybody that you meet, but think about it, there are
billions and billions of people surviving on planet earth and you only have
the blessing to meet those thousands that has crossed your path.

Accept, be grateful and you will feel lighter! Smile!”
