A Lousy Monday

It really is.

Reasons being:
- I still have to work when my spirit is half way to BP already
- The kids' frequent asking of 'when are we gonna go balik kampung' every waking hour
- I am not done with packing yet!
- A very pitiful supply of sparklers - ever!
- Deli's intention to bakar mercun in BP!
- An email from the COO. Damage control required. Sigh.
- I have to work tomorrow too... sobs...

Happy Birthday to the Charming Boy

Happy 7th birthday to Haziq Mustaqim.
We all love you so very much.
I'm out - yey! It's been 9 long days of being away from my family and shoving hospital food down my throat.

Me and the Meds Part III

I could barely swallow these. It's lunch by the way.

Don't get me started on this one! It's a bowl of lumpy oats and 2 slices of bread. I need real food!

These babies kept me company..

One of the dinner served. Wasn't that bad.

The person who was supposed to be by my hospital bed, taking care of me. He slept on the bed. I slept on the chair. Chis..

Not only that - he ate my breakfast as well. Oyy!!!

Kakak slept on the chair when she was on duty last Saturday.

The nurse with her psp

I am still here. It's been 5 long days and still no indication on when i will be discharged. Sigh. I am much better but the kind doctor is still reluctant to let me go.

Thanks for those who came and visited - that was very nice of you people *smile*

Me and the Meds Part II

Wednesday's breakfast was yummy - pancakes and bread

Yesterday's dinner was yummy as well. Asam pedas and bitter gourd.

Super swelling hand

What caused the swelling.

However, i was dissapointed that i only got to eat a small bowl of flat noodle soup with a cup of milo for breakfast.

And i was fed with steam rice, a wierd salad mix, chicken nuggets and clear soup for lunch.

I seriously think yesterday's menu was a teaser. Today's the real deal.

I'm hungry and i have tons of work to do. I have been on the net and phone since 8.30am.

I'm hungry! Help!

Me and the meds

I am now warded at APSH.

I was admitted on Tuesday afternoon after a gruesome blood test.

Looks like I'm gonna be here for quite a while (according to the kind Dr. S)

I'll blog again soon.

Being Me

I have been working in Alaska the whole of this week. At least that’s how it felt in the office. I think it’d be great to be assigned to Alaska. I’ve never been there nor experienced hyperthermia. It’d be cool, don’t you think?

There are a couple of news that I’d like to blog about.

Dol is leaving and it’s truly unexpected and hard for me to accept. He’s sort of my best friend and a brother all dolled up in one not-so-tall person. I was planning to groom him to be my successor and take my place when I move on to the PM group. I guess that couldn’t come quick enough for him. Plus he was offered much more than what he’s making right now. A lot more. I tried to persuade him to stay but he’s pretty determined to go. Especially when we couldn’t top the offer he’s getting. That’s the sad bit, you see. I can pretty much help him with work matters but remuneration is something that’s out of my hands. I am deeply sad and most of all, disappointed.

I guess I have to tell myself to be happy for him. If he’s really not happy working in I*G, then probably leaving is the answer. I can’t force him to stay. I want to but I can’t. But I want to.

I hate it even more because now I have to take over his project. If there’s anything I hate about project, it’s audit projects. Urgh! This particular one has to be done by 15th of November. Now I have to start reading the project materials and understand the head, body and tail. I have to act like I know the project inside out when I start

So now I have to manage 2 audit projects. Double yuck! I am nearing my resource capacity limit for August and November with tasks for just these 2 projects. I had to drop another system enhancement project to ensure I don’t go overboard with my resource capacity.

So anyways, work is just work. It will never end.

On the other hand, I have not been myself for the past few weeks. I often missed work because I couldn’t even muster the energy to get ready for work. I had to share with the Dutchman of the problems that I’m facing and lucky me, he (tried to) understand my problems. So that’s pretty much covered.

I am trying to be strong and brave through the days when I couldn’t even stand for long. Some people just don’t understand the battle I’m going through and it saddens me that those are the people I loved.

Doesn’t matter. I couldn’t care less what other people want to say. It is me who’s trying with all my might to be up and about. It is still me suffering from all the pains and stuff. Why bother what others want to say?

For those making fun of what I’m going through, do remember that this pain is not exclusively mine. If He wants to test you, He will bestow upon you the same pain, if not worse.

Now I have to remember not to eat for sahur tomorrow morning. Will be doing some blood work with the doctor first thing tomorrow.

Oh, I hope it’s not too late to wish you all Salam Ramadhan and Selamat Berpuasa.
