Bencab Museum

We went to the most talked about museum in Baguio, Bencab Museum owned by Ben Cabrera. I would say it’s worth to go to this place though it’s quite far. I mean really far. I can’t remember how long was our travel time. We took taxi up to the market and from there, we rode a jeep going to Asin. Just ask the jeepney drivers that you’ll go there and they’ll tell you to hop in. And my sisters were right, I think it’s around 30-45 minutes ride. If you’ll take a taxi, it’ll be around 500-600 pesos,quite expensive. T.T

If you appreciate art, you must see visit this place. There are tons of artworks you can see and each section are divided so you won’t get lost. ^^ Here are some of the arts that I like and totally appreciated though there are really lots!

And after seeing the artworks, there’s a cafe at the basement, Cafe Isabel. It’s a good place to appreciate art and enjoying organic foods. Now I missed the Strawberry vinaigrette over the salad and cucumber mint shake. It’s so~ so~ good. ^^

Baguio version 2.0

I was back again in Baguio for this year’s vacation with the same reason, for my sister’s graduation. We were in a different hotel and went to different places that I haven’t tried. We were there for five days and as if the hotel was already our second home. Haha! We’ve been here and there, eat and stroll around.

More to go~ I got tons of photos to share. haha!

Addendum:

As what I had mentioned, we were in Baguio for five days. We stayed in Bloomfield hotel and it was really a very good hotel. The room was spacious, we got an aircon and fridge there! Unlike from last year. The employees are nice and they’ll help you with your things and even catching a cab. They have a nice café, Patch Café. They serve good food and coffee. It’s also a walking distance going to SM and to my sister’s school. One time, I had a morning walk and went to Sunshine Park. There were students who were conducting P.E. doing traditional dances. I got a free show!  

Post graduation! My sister and I were to bored to go back to hotel so we just strolled around and had some shake in Beanstalk. It’s around Upper Session Road. It’s a good place though. ^^

Way to go~

XOXO!

 

Circle – Sushi Counter



Funny, I am on a diet but I can’t stop myself and was indulge with sushi. And after several times planning to try Circle, finally we’re there. 

It has a good ambiance though it doesn’t look like a sushi house at all. The menu is on iPad and you can clearly see how each sushi looks like. We never thought that it’s so much affordable! You can get an order as low as AED 25 and big slices. They’ll also give you a starter of bread, yogurt and olives and they’re tasty, I swear. This is a must try place. ^^ It is located in Al Ain Mall, just in the corner. ^^ And I’d love to try it again. I’ll ditch my diet for this. Haha!

I Was Away and I am Back

I was gone for a month for my annual leave and I left without notice unless we have a direct contact. *snickers*

Whoops~ Enjoying a cup of coffee before my departure, enjoyed my view with the Palm Jumeirah along the window and yay, me and my sister, prevacation weight. haha! I gained weight! And they all said, it’s alright because vacations are meant to ruin your diet.

I was away and I enjoyed traveling and meeting my old good friends. I went back again to Baguio for my sister’s graduation rites and went to Ilocos with my mom and sister. And I swear, you should try going to Ilocos. Though I got sick because of the water source, but that didn’t stop from enjoying everything.

This is just a spoiler of my vacation. I’ll post them up soon, promise. ^^

P.S. I was planning to get a Diana camera or an analogue camera but I failed.😦

Fleeting Moments

A long day of surgery plus the heaviest day of my life, wearing the lead apron for 2 hours and I hope I’ll get used to it. A morning coffee for a whole day seminar yet my mind still wandered. A savory fruit tart to save the afternoon sleepiness. A view in my clinic’s window. The most interesting part of the room is to see the people outside and what they’re doing. Oh that night.. That night when I got that uh oh award.😄 Weekend then back to work. I’m now halfway to the book I am reading and it’s getting more and more interesting. Japanese night. I ordered seafood udon in Umi Sushi with my friends. And currently on the loop, ‘Love is Timing‘ in English translation by Busker Busker with a line “I guess we were probably not meant to be.” Phew~

That’s what had happened to me in the past few weeks.

Happy Nurses’ Day

International Nurses’ Day was well celebrated worldwide yesterday, May 12. In our facility, we had our annual program and this time it was held in the hotel nearby. It was a night of gathering of all the  nurses in one venue without holding any injections or paper works.

And every year, they are choosing nurses for a category and unexpectedly, they chose me for Best Patient Appreciation. I am already grateful to where I am but a big, big thanks to my facility for giving me this plaque. It took me a few seconds longer staying at the stage as our Hospital Director talked to me and said that he’s glad to see me there. (We just had a small meeting with him due to some issues a night before this.)

Kudos to all nurses and soon to be nurses!

#SafeSurgicalHands

IMG_3747IMG_3751

The month of May is the Handwashing Awareness Month and this year’s theme as per the CDC, “#SafeSurgicalHands.” As part of the health care team especially the surgical team, this is the most important step for us. And as they said, “Infection control is in your hands.” Especially in the operating room, I am most meticulous.I scrub my whole arms minimum of six minutes. I’d rather stay a bit longer in the lavatory just to ensure my hands are surgically clean. Obviously, no nurse have a soft hands. We have to rub our hands with soap and water plus the hand sanitizer hundred times each day. ^^

At the end of the day, we had a very delightful Emirati food given by our VIP patient.

We had Biryani, Harees and the other one that is made of vermicelli but it’s sweet. I wasn’t able to take a photo of that one. Boo. At first she was thinking of giving us only in our room but decided to give the whole department. It was very filling and everyone’s happy! Shukran!
