The month of May

Yesterday as i hold my punch card, it's pratically empty! Can't imagine i only worked for 2 days in May, which is the 1st working day (2/5/08) and the last working day (30/5/08)! And when i enter my department, a few staff came to a hilarious conclusion..."Jun, u dah kahwin ke? Pergi mana untuk honeymoon?" *sweat* Maybe because i was so glad in a way to be back to see my dear colleagues + staffs and also can't wait to see my long stay patients (can't imagine i actually missed following up them, but also hope they'll be discharged home by the time i'm back).

After 2 weeks of MC and then followed by 2 weeks of induksi for HKL staff in Port Dickson @ PNB Ilham Resort, i almost forget how to pack my stuff for work. Despite a sprained ankle with ligament injuries, i still went for banana boat, jungle trekking, arobics every morning (630-730am), all the telematch in the evening etc. It was fun as it really bring out the inner child of all of us. Looking at all the hospital staffs from doctors, pharmacists, dietitians, speech therapists, audiologists, staff nurses, social workers, sains officers, and a catering officer mingling together, it's really like a BIG family. We pratically throw away all our gelaran and rankings and left our job behind to participate wholeheartedly in every program that was arranged for us. A total of 70 participant all from HKL, really makes a very diverse group of characters, most never saw each other before although we were all from HKL (it's really a big place).

From the boring lectures to some very informative lectures that stretches from day 2 until day 10, to the physical arobics and funny/hilarious telematch by the army, riadah (waterpolo, kayaking and banana boat) and to the time we prepared for exam, 2 weeks just flew by! We were all demanding for another day of cuti induksi lanjutan to our penyelaras on the day of exam, knowing it impossible.

After we came back to KL from PD, the next day in HKL, 10 of us actually gathered for reunion lunch as we were already missing each other's company :) We also visited each other's department, lepak around the hospital, getting to see each other's areas, it just put a smile on my face. Finally i do feel like a big family here besides only knowing my department (which is already around 100 staffs).

Besides learning the core business which is Pekeliling Am and Perintah Am, etc... which gave us a clearer picture of where we are as goverment servants, now, we even have friends from all departments, which it's the biggest wonder from this induksi for me. Ya, there are times when i'll rebel at certain things, just surrender it all to Him and hope i can learn live a life He plans.

Attended Perng Fei & Mey Lih's wedding today. Congrats to the newly wed couple!


p/s: Didn't make it to Relay For regret....Will try to make it for once next year.
