Almost There

I passed my clinical placement!!!!
I am REALLY happy that I am FINALLY competent.
I am NOW officially qualified to be a clinical dietitian. WooHoo!

But before that, let me tell you a little facts for the past 77 days.

Routine 11 weeks ago:-

5am: There go my alarm from my Nokia device!
5-5.20am: Alarm snoozing period *Yawn*
5.20am: Drag myself to wake up *Triple Yawn*
5.20 - 5.55am: Toilet business, dressing up, food packing etc
6am: 5 minutes exercise to the bus stop
6.08am: Bus to the train station
6.35am: Catch the train to Morriset
7.10am: Arrive Morriset
7.30am: Anne picks me up from the station
8am: Arrive Hospital
8am-4.30pm: CLINICAL PLACEMENT with LOTSA exercise
4.50-5.10pm: Catch train back to Newcastle
5.51pm: Await for bus at the bus stop *If I miss this, I will have to wait 30 minutes for the next bus =(
6.30-7pm: Arrive home and call daddy/mummy/bro to complain like a baby!
7pm: Rest
7.30pm: Shower and dinner
8.30pm: Prepare lunch for next day
9.00pm: OFFICIALLY worn out. Sleep like a pig and snored till 5am next morning

YES! I was physcially and mentally E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-D-!-!-!-!-!-!

However, it’s extremely sad to complete this placement (both Wyong and Gosford Hospital). For the past 11 weeks, I’ve learned SO much. The long commute time can physically and mentally impact me. But with the positive attitude, drive, charisma and moral support from my beloved, I've overcomed that. Thanks. Love you!

All I want to say that I am extremely glad that I've learned a lot from this experience. I thought I will hate my clinical placement coz I was basically stressed out by my lecturer. THANKS!!! But I was wrong. I TOTALLY LOVE CLINICAL! And would love to work as a clinical dietitian.

This is what I've told people:

"I am starting to love it eventhough I realize there is sooooooo many things that i am unfamiliar with. But I know I am here to learn. I managed to talk to some patients today. It was a little frightening. I was confident when I know what to ask from patients but got super nervous and stucked when I don't know what to tell them. But I managed to get some assistance from my down to earth supervisor. She is very helpful and fun to work with. I really really like her! I am starting to write medical notes and patient's card like how doctor, nurses and other health professional does! It feel so good to see my writing on those medical notes!"

"Yes, no doubt I am enjoying my placement compared to the entire previous one. Full of challenges and surprises everyday! I never know what kind of patient I will be talking to until I read thru their details from the medical notes for less than an hour and off I go! It can be a lil frightening at times. I get to educate some of the outpatients last two days which is quite interesting and challenging."

"It just feels so great being able to help all patients from different age groups especially the elderly. They actually listen to your advice. It feels darn great. And there was once a really old lady said this to me that I'll never ever forget - Thank you, 'doctor'. It was a huge adrenaline rush and I totally loved it."


Anyway, for those who are interested in the nursing quarters in Gosford Hospital, here you go!

My Room # 50 for ENTIRE 7 weeks EXCEPT weekends =P

HUHU! I managed to survive for the past 7 weeks right here. It is a little frightening when I first moved in. But I pretty much got used to it. Just like my bro and mum said, I am a DBKL (Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur) which means I can sleep everywhere like a garbage! HOW MEAN!!!! But anyway, if I can survivve there, I am pretty sure you can too.

Just ONE TINY WARNING: There is no cooking facilities. So, freeze your meal bitches!

I was so happy that I stayed for the last night at the quarters that I........................

..........camwhore like no one business although it was bloody effing cold that night!! *peace*

And was so happy that I don't need to catch the train back to Newcaslte coz Frankie - The Meannie - Ahem ahem, I mean Mr. Nice Guy picks me up coz I've 1000 bags to bring back to Newcastle *GRIN*

Awaiting for Frankie's Ford and last photo before I leave the quarters

HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kimmy passed her clinical!!! Kimmy passed her clinical!!! Kimmy passed her clinical!
And guess what she got for herself for a reward??????????????????

Weeee!!! Creme Brulee Mocha Chillers with Whipped Cream and Caramel - WALAA.

Sinful but A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!

And it's FOC too! TRIPLE A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!

Oh, NO rest for me yet.......................................... BECAUSE...................

Nope I am NOT NOT NOT "Dawn Yang Wannabe"!!

But it's true!! Kimmy is going to Sydney in a few hours!!!!!!!!!!! YESH!!

DON'T BELIEVE???!!????

Soul Mate

Have you ever wonder……….

Who is your soul mate?
Is there soul mate for everyone?

Does soul mate live happily ever after?

(Photo Credit: Ummmm ANONYMOUS =P)

But what is ‘soul mate’?

According to the favourite online resource *ahem ahem* - Wikipedia, soul mate is defined as a term used to designate someone with whom one has a feeling of deep and natural affinity, friendship, love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality and/or compatibility.

For me, soul mate refers to the person who is the mirror of you and whom you can call your own. Short and sweet.

You know you have found your soul mate when you don’t need to explain in long details what you have in your heart but you know exactly what the other person is thinking. Sometimes you don’t even have to think long to come out with an answer.

I never believed in soul mates. I believed there is no such magical power that you can read through someone’s glass. I was like “Come on, we all need reality checks. Soul mate will never exist. Who would believe someone who can actually read your mind, complete your sentences, and know exactly how you’re feeling even though you tried so hard to fake it? This is totally impossible. Way impossible.”

But I guess I was being too naïve, and really need a reality check myself! Knowing him completely changes my view and the scariest part is sometimes it just totally freaks me out.

Complete each other sentences – CHECK!
Shares so much things in common – CHECK CHECK!
Speak the exact same thing at the same time (Sometimes it can be so freaky that both of us repeats each other’s word without even realizing them) – CHECK CHECK CHECK!
Know exactly how the other person feels even when trying so hard to fake it – CHECK CHECK!

I am not sure about you but for me….
He is the first person to be there when I need someone to talk to.
He appears immediately when I am like “Babe, where are you?”
He shares too much in common with me.
He knows I am sad and worried even though I told him I am ok when I know I am not at all.

Not 100% at all times but pretty close to it.

All I want to voice out is that this relationship and attraction is so unique and magical that I’ve no choice but to believe that soul mate does really exist. YES, it really does.

But then again, not everyone will experience this. In my opinion, some might not even find their soul mate during their life span. I know I am very honoured and lucky because I know it takes a lot to find your soul mate.

Thanks to fate, magical power, or whatever you call them.

AND of course… Thank you, soul mate.

Here's a little dedication to my soul mate.
(If you don’t want to read them. SKIP it! I’ve warned you!)


Dear soul mate,

You know I am not good with words but there is nothing else I can do to describe how thankful and honoured I am for knowing you. You lifted me up and guided me when I was really lost and down. You broke through the night with daylight and motivated me when I needed it the most. You always have my back and supported me wherever you’re. You’re a very special someone to me and I never stop counting my blessings for this. It’s great to have someone like you that understand me so well and cracked your head trying to cheer me up. And my heart never ceases to melt for everything you’ve done. Thank you once again!

But before I end I just want to let you know that I am worried. I am scared. I am afraid that I might have to let you go one day. I don’t know why but I do have low self esteem at times and not believing in myself that things will happen like how we wanted to. It’s not about you. It’s just me. But I promise we’ll let things happen naturally. And no matter what, you’ll remain in my heart.

Your soul mate


Just before I finish end today, here is a little quote for all of you and hope you like it.

“You know you have found your soul mate when you two feel you're driving in a tunnel and you feel the warm light in front of you at the end of the tunnel lighted out by your loved one.”

Hugs and kisses
