Father’s Day

Every year, we celebrate Father’s Day. It’s a special day to remember for the good he has done for us and playing the role of a father figure in our family. This year is no exception. However, my father’s health condition is not good these days. A few years more to come, I wonder how Father’s Day will mean to us. Hopefully, while he is at his best condition, he remembers us.

My dad has been diagnosed with a rare neurodegenerative disorder and though it is known to be slowly progressing, but when we knew of his condition, it could be somewhere between the mild to moderate stage. These days, his tremors is more obvious, becomes forgetful easily , short attention span, lost interests in his surroundings and tends to withdraw from our social talks.

My sis and I are trying to engage him, trying to take more photographs of him. We 💖  him a lot and we just want to spend more time with him.

Meanwhile, I searched for some essential oils to help him with his condition. He responds greatly to smell and the other day, he was feeling nausea and I applied Digize on him. He told me the smell is very strong and he squirmed when he smelled it. I had a good laugh. But after I rubbed on his abdomen, he somehow felt more relaxed and was able to sleep soundly through the night.

From the search, there were suggestions to use some essential oils to calm him, trigger his emotions and stays focus. Gonna do this blend for him so that he will be able to sustain this energy on him.

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers.

Especially to my father, husband and my brother in law. Thank you for working so hard and giving the best to the family!

COVID-19 CB Measures

These two months of circuit breaker measures has definitely changed the way we work and our usual lifestyle. For many people who are full time workers, it is not very easy to work from home. I know that there are people who welcomed this measure as this will allow spending more time with the family and not 100% work at home. It’s not easy to struggle between family and work at the same time- whatever it is, there is always this 60-40 or 30-70 ratio of work-life.

Somehow, or rather, I adjusted my life to work from home (WFH) and time flashed past, the circuit breaker measures came to an end! Yeah, it is that fast!

Now, with the new norm which is part of our daily lifestyle, I am definitely fine with WFH! To go back to office and work, is something which I may have to adjust back to again after these two months!

Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day! Today is special because I am a mother. I would also like to wish all mothers a happy Mother’s Day. In additional- a dedication of thanks to the lovely mothers who are working as frontliners in view of fighting COVID-19.

Thanks for working and keeping everyone safe. Likewise, refrain from going out and keep safe, everyone.

I cannot imagine the surprise that I will be receiving later. It can also be considered as a gift from hub. Shall reveal the surprise later!

Nursing

Some of my students looked upon me as a role model. Some are still in awe about their decision to join the nursing course.

While there are not right or wrong to choose the career path, I believe that the decisions made at the moment were the outcome of something important or impactful. I mean, it’s not easy for everyone to say I want to be a nurse. Most of the time, the people surrounding them may sound doubtful and even put the person down as they don’t see them making it at the end.

It is just like me when I decided to join the nursing course and needed to go for the medical examination, how one doctor mocked at me by telling me I do not do housework and definitely will not make it as a nurse. So many decades have gone by and if the doctor is still around, I just want to tell him, “I am still standing, yeah yeah yeah….”

I still have the passion for nursing, I still want to help people. However, my perspective has changed. With my efforts alone, I can only help a handful of people. Thus right now, being in the education sector, I hope I can inspire more people to be nurses and good ones to be. 🙂

My Olympus OMD EM10

I once was proudly of being a second owner of a pre-loved Olympus camera and loved playing with it till one day, it dropped onto the floor from a portable shelf which my hub was trying to move.

I was sad! Quickly send it for repair and took like 3 weeks long to change the LCD screen. Though it works fine, there are some areas that was rough on the edges which makes it a little ugly.

The worst thing that happened after that was the WiFi does not work anymore! I was pretty dismayed that my once perfect camera is no longer perfect anymore.

I thought of selling away but I may not have a camera for quite some time if I do that. But again I have no time for photography hobbies currently.

Should I see or keep it still?

Yesterday was

Lousy… full of issues once I was back to work.

Starting with an 8am class for two hours and my voice also nearly went hoarse. This was followed by a quick lunch break and another 4 hours of class.

I cannot imagine how it will be like for this continuity of lessons but since I planned in such a way, I will have to accept and continue with it. It may be tiring but I am also enjoying the teaching as well, minus all the administrative work.

I just want to pray for a good smooth work flow and less communication issues with colleagues. When communication is not clear, it creates problems. Worse still, they talk behind your back.

I have to watch my back several times a day to ensure I don’t bleed too heavily. 🤣

I believe I will have a better day at work today!

I can’t bear to…

close my blog.

Firstly, there are many things which I have penned down my life in this blog.

Most of the picture links are still working.

My efforts…

Due to my working commitments, I have neglected this blog much. My followers have also been reduced. I am not someone who blogs by the number of followers I have but it is one of the outlet for me to vent and share things which I 💖 about.

Perhaps, I should get on to follow through my kids’ growing up phases. Ever since they started primary school, I did not really have time to blog about the weekly happenings/ outings with my family. Owells…..I come back again.
