The new term has started. Paediatric kicks off this new semester,and by the looks of it it's going to be a pain in the arse. Since we only have 3 working days last week, they crammed a whole week worth of lectures/ward tutorials in those 3 days. Akibatnya hari Jumaat kelas 8.30am- 7 pm. By 4pm semua konsentrasi telah menyejat di dalam cuaca panas Penang.
Before this i used to think that im good with babies. I mean,clearly babies adore me.ehemm
This was taken few years ago. My last encounter with a baby.After that, the closest i get to a baby was when i watched Justin Bieber's rendition of Baby on youtube. So i totally forgot what it's like to handle these cuddly poop making machine. The first morning in Paed ward,i had a revelation.
I have zero tolerance for crying babies.
If you cant stand the sound of one crying baby, the Paed ward is definitely a place you are not looking forward to go to. One baby starts crying the next one will try to harmonize ala-ala Boyz II Men. Sometimes you can have up to 15 babies crying at the exact same time and that's when you feel like you want to terjun KB Mall already.
But as the day goes by,kesabaran terhadap bayi-bayi mogok ini semakin menebal. I kinda like it in the Paed wards. Seeing all those mothers taking care of their child is really moving. Some of them practically live in the ward for few months,never once left their seriously ill kids unattended. Jadi sayangilah ibubapa anda. (sempat kempen sayangi ibubapa disitu)
Examining babies is a whole different ball game. They obviously tak paham bahasa so we have to work our ways through it. You have to distract them by making stupid noises and facial expressions. Might as well come to work dressed up as a clown -___-" Aaaaand we have to buy toys and bring it to the ward everyday.
So imma head to Tesco and get some Made In China toys tomorrow. Sorry babies,uncle is miskin.No Toy's R Us for y'all.
Or i might just use this Ikea lamp thingy i bought long ago. Jimat duit hmmmmm
