The First Week

It is my first week after becoming MO. Starting life in Sipitang, living in a mansion provided by the hospital. Its just a double story house with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathroom and a spacious kitchen and living room, but i like to call it a mansion. For me it is big for one person. I had to bring my cousin to stay and live with me here so that i am not that bored staying in a big house alone. Pretty much, it is a comfortable house. Love it, and it is near to the hospital. 2 minutes drive or 3 minutes walking. ( using car i have to follow the road while by foot i can just cross the field and reach the hospital back door.

Well, they put me covering the outpatient department and casualty. Pretty much nothing big has happen. Everyday sitting in my own room, with my own nurse, see patient and try to help that as much as i could. However, sometimes, there is too much patient, i can't check them thoroughly in every visit.

It feel weird when becoming an MO. Last time when i was a house officer, i just clerk a patient, try to make the diagnosis, consult my MO, and specialist, get their plan of management, do whatever i can do to help, basically carry out all the plan, then discharge the patient, wait for another one to come.

As MO, i cannot do that anymore. When i clerk patient, admit to the ward from clinic, i have to see that patient back in the ward cause nobody will if i did not. There is no people to give me plan of management, i am the one who give the plan. The plan later carry out by the ward nurse. It feel weird, and somehow i can feel that kind of power. But with great power, come great responsibility. As i discharged a patient, i have to make sure he or she is well at home or else they will come back and bring me more headache. It is like, when i discharge a patient, that patient will still haunt me in my sleep thinking whether i manage him correctly, will he be fine at home? The responsibility becoming more now compare to before.

I miss my housemenship training. Come to hospital just thinking of when to go back, what to do when i go back, what procedure should i learn, and meet all the friends.

I miss KK town also. Everytime i went back home from work, i used to go out and grab some takeaway food from variety of restaurant in KK town. Sometimes, i feel bored, i will drive to any cinema that i like and watch random movie.

Here in Sipitang, there is nothing much to do other than hanging out at home and play my Xbox 360. There is only one fast food restaurant in town...KFC. There is a few mamak stall, and there is a lot of food stall in Sipitang town but basically all of them sell the same thing. Goreng2, kepak ayam and satay.

even though i love to try all kind of satay here but, that's it. There is no chinese food that i can eat, there is no japanese, western, mc donald, marry brown, pizza, kenny roger, secret recipe, RCH....bla bla and the list go on.

ahahahhaha.... but i do love it here. This place is so calm and relaxing. I guess i can live a healthy life here. Lots of tree providing me oxygen, i can get fresh vegetables and fish, i walk to my working place, play my xbox more, and when i had a chance to go to KK, it will be a very happy moment for me. ( Just went to beaufort town and i get excited even though the town is smaller than Labuan town yet it is bigger than Sipitang. Went there to settle my tmnet account).

Looking forward for more experience here in Sipitang. I may appreciate life more than i appreciate life in KK.
