I used to be a bored, thoroughly exhausted and burned-out doctor who was trying real hard to juggle between my medical life and my other passion and interests (reading, writing, blogging etc). There were times when I wonder…did I still have hobbies because I really liked doing them, or just to prove to myself that I was not just a nerdy doctor?
Thankfully after 2 years of grueling internship (aka housemanship as it is called in Malaysia) God granted my wish to become a medical officer in the field of psychiatry; an ideal field for a person like me who adore reading, writing and listening to stories. Now I know how it feels to love one’s job. Exhaustion and burn-out, Alhamdulillah, are things of the past now.
When I am not studying, you will find me curled up under the quilt with a good book in hands and a box of chocolate on my bed table. On rainy days…there’s nothing I love more than a cup of steaming hot coffee with a delicious sweet pastry to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Initially, this blog was an attempt on my part to keep my family abreast of what I was doing in Australia. An attempt to connect with my friends scattered all around the world…
Now that I am already back in Malaysia as a doctor, this blog will be the venue of choice for me to vent my frustration and my temper with regards to future colleagues and superiors (guaranteed to come across as I go through my medical training) the Malaysian healthcare system, the Malaysian politicians, or simply the society in general.
But most of all, I would like to tell the world that life has its trials and tribulations but with joy and happiness in between them, making up poetries that may not rhyme, but beautiful still because they are tales about the passing of time.
