Prof Aw in his H1N1 Address

Prof Aw in his H1N1 Address
Made by Haris Abdul Rahman
Prof Aw is a UM alumnus, and currently a Professor of Occupational Health at the United Arab Emirates University. UAE and especially Dubai relies on traffic to sustain the economy of the country and as one could imagine, should H1N1 hit Dubai hard, or at least perceived to be hitting it hard, they could experience a downturn. Prof Aw came over to share his experience in handling the media in UAE, how the first case there, who happened to be a colleague at his University was diagnosed and other anecdotes.

Waiting for the number

Brought my Dad today for his 3 monthly chest appointment. He was happy at being told that he is OK even though the fact that he continues to smoke did not help matters. While here, he took the chance to visit his brother. My Uncle is doing very well following the operations on Monday. He is still hooked up on the epidural but there were no signs of complications. He is having physio at the moment but his spirits are up. Now waiting for my Dad's inhalers and medications. Back to work after.

Being organised is a relative term but this is the most organised I have been for weeks!

It's Tuesday. It is the day when I don on my pink shirt and determine not to see any patients but to concentrate on just doing paperwork, research and some reading. Got in early and start going through my in tray and got a lot done. Unfortunately the work just don't want to get away. They are just piling in. Not to mention one of my aunties just arrived asking me for directions to visit my uncle. Well. Work has to wait for a bit.

The weather has been sombre all day but fortunately I was busy indoors. It's one of the days that I wished that I was working instead of it ring a holiday. Just completing my ward chores and awaiting for one last review before giving my Uncle a visit. It's home after that, and preparing for some work I need to do in Klang tomorrow afternoon. My Uncle went through the operation without much complications today. Alhamdulillah.

Morning Talk by Prof Ho from Singapore NUS

Morning Talk by Prof Ho from Singapore NUS
Made by Haris Abdul Rahman
We were treated this morning by an excellent talk by Prof Ho. Hw basically described how Singapore revamped their whole healthcare system since the turn of the millenium. Consequently they are at least 10 years ahead of us at the moment although the power that be in Government wouldn't like to admit that. There are lessons to be learned here, but we must bake the humble pie.

The fifth floor in Menara Timur is also undergoing some interior renovation and as such the lifts are closed in order to transport the construction materials up. The problem starts when the lifts themselves are being upgraded leaving Menara Timur at times at the mercy of just a couple of lifts instead of the usual six.

Earlier in the week, my colleague Edmund decided to take a trip down memory lane. He is a University Malaya graduate and now a fellow lecturer there. He spend 4 years at the 6th College and used to frequent this joint he affectionately call 'Pak Abu'. Pak Abu himself has left the premise last year.

A badminton match was held between the Medical Officers and the Lecturers from the Medical Department. The Lecturers won convincingly though 6 games to 1. This is the only point won by the MOs, and that was clearly because one of the lecturer was in his office attire and playing barefoot!

Since a couple of months back, my hospital has abandoned the use of beeper. Instead, we have to carry our handphone everywhere as a mean to be contactable. The hospital is still negotiating the billing system as at the moment, should I have to ring the hospital, it will be on me!

Scrounching around for lunch well past the time ad there was no food to be found at the usual joint. Decided to sample the new shop opened on the Ground Floor to replace Delifrance. Unfortunately the kitchen was not in order. We went to the Kopitiam at Trauma Centre instead.

It was way way past anyone's bedtime when I snapped this shot. I was sitting with my siblings in the waiting room of the wad where dad was in and just had to snap this one of another fellow waiter, sleeping under the sign Ruang Menungu which means 'Waiting Area'...

We caught the back end of Jasmin's talk when we arrived at the talk. She was speaking on Thrombotic Thromcytopenic Purpura. Quite a long discussion. We were also treated with pizza courtesy of Suhaida who just completed her Masters Program.

A morning of updates and my printer was working overtime! Note that the printer is my own because the boss doesn't supply us printer in the Day Care. Talk about being efficient. And the computer is also from our research fund. Sigh!

The new Orthopedic Research Centre being built. Located between the Medical Department building and the Medical Library, it certainly looked cramped. I’m sure it will be nice by the time everything is completed.
