Episode 1: Finally at LAST!

i wonder why this is my first time to write a blog though blogging has been present for some time now. but maybe here are the factors that made me not do this kind of homework:
1. i think i'm not much of a writer
2. i dont even know what to write
3. i am the type of person who would start something but would not finish (i started a "book" once and ended up with only around three pages...sayang katapat ko na sana sila JRR Tolkien ngayon...)
4. i'm a procrastinator, like i said i'm lazy (proud to be? but tell you what writing this would serve as a therapy you know...as a constant reminder of your weaknesses)
5. mahal ang internet connection (ung 20php per hour eh pwde na un ng 5 to 8 bullets sa paintball...so tsk waste of money tlga ang internet rent...)

but anyway apart from all these i'd still do my best to make a regular post of what happens sa clerkship at the Ospital ng Maynila...a place they say, that we PLM-CM clerks would have our hearts churned to be:

  • humble doctors (yup "boy" or "neng" ka lang ng mga nurses tipong "boy pa-push nga po ng para sa pasyenteng ito
  • intellectually competent (thanks to Harry-Go-rounds, we'll learn a lot of chinese words; or to dra Flores....how to have flight of ideas)
  • MacGyvers (imagine using a 5 gallon lalagyan ng refillable water for an incubator?)
  • Businessmen (we need to...kaysa naman na ung pambili ng i.v., etc ng pasyente eh galing sa pocket namin)
  • indiscriminate (you think you could touch a taong grasa whenever one arrives at the ER?)
  • and a lot more...so i guess clerkship would be a great thing that would happen in my life, as i quote from Janina San Miguel, "my Pamily are the most important persons in my life bow thank you" eeeeyng??? ano naman connection? heheü
here's a glimpse of something you don't get to see everyday...ala-perya:
another pic (conjoined twins????):
hahaha!! nope, that's my toddler and his tito john john hehe

so here ends my first post...like one of my batchmates has said, "to clerkship and beyond!"
and i quote Caesar: "alea jacta est!"

Ospital ng Maynila: such a lovely place, such a lovely face...you can check out anytime you want but you can never leave!!!
