It’s UAE’s 46th National Day! Everyone’s celebrating it and and we had a competition on which area was the best. Thanks for all the effort from our reception everyone appreciated it. We didn’t win though. But it’s alright.
And we’re having a looong weekend! I can’t wait to go to Dubai again. ^^
… very soon. ^^
I was MIA for quite a long time. But I’ll try to be active again.
It’s Tuesday and I was able to get out of work on time and that can happen once in a blue moon. I got some time to talk to my mom and sister back home, do some laundry, cook and read some book. Oh, let’s not forget to watch a little on youtube. Geez, I’m getting addicted to the second season of Produce 101.
And I was about to go and meet my cousin last time but due to the workload, I can’t. C’est La Vie. haha!
I was craving for some Indian food so I told my friend to have dinner in our favorite place, Silver Sands. They served the best Masala Dosa and Gobi Manchurian I had ever tasted so far. haha! And I served myself some frozen yogurt from the grocery. I got it only for 3AED because it’ll expire in a week’s time. haha!
It’s been a not so long Tuesday.
Four hours drive away multiplied by two in back and forth, that’s how far we went by. From Al Ain to Ruwais, it was a long trip that is worth to go for. Left by 10:30 in the evening and came by 3 at dawn the next day, went for fishing, witnessed the sun rise, had breakfast and left. We caught one big fish and still lucky than nothing. Now what are we gonna do with the fish? We can’t decide on what to cook. Probably a Filipino favorite dish, “sinigang.”
I’m crossing my fingers the photos I took by film will turn as decent.😜
The weekend getaway is over. Time to rest!
Weekend spent with a caffeine and books~ *coughs* nursing stuffs.
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!
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!
