Risky job

I remember the day when I had a voice chat with my sister on skype. She was working on Jeddah with some co-filipino nurses in a hospital. Sometime it’s very busy and if not they were sent home. There is a time if it was her day off and there are many patients she was called in to work, lucky they just live very close to the hospital. 

Being a nurse or a doctor is one of the very risky profession especially they're looking after the health condition or life of the patient.  She mentioned there was a nurse that was mistakenly gives a wrong dosage of medicine to patient but no bad  effect happen to the patient, but something bad happen to the nurse. The patient complaint to her in regards to performance on not paying attention to her job like what had happened. I think she was being terminated, if she has any type of coverage from this place it’s not really a big deal if she loss her job because she can claim to the insurance but if not it will be hard for her to continue her profession.

That’s why on that day when the incident happen to their co-nurse, my sister was very careful and keep an eye always on the details in relation to the patient matter and her job. 

Happy Australia Day

What’s going on tomorrow? It’s Australia Day, there’s an event organize in the city every year.  I was invited by a friend who is a member of the Filipino community to join the parade together with different nationalities in celebration of Australian Day. We are obliged to wear our traditional Philippines costume for woman (kimona) and skirt. My friend provides me the top costume and I will provide the black skirt if I can.  I remember I have some skirts hidden on the upper part of the wardrobe but I can’t reach to find it so I grab a chair to reach the top. We really need to get a proper 2 step stools for easy work on high level at home. 

Anyway, it’s my first time to join in the parade, I hope it won’t be a long walk and not a very hot day tomorrow. There will be some entertainment and performance event after the parade like celebrity concert and some Australian talented performers. I’m excited to witness this very important and it’s nice to be a part of it.

It would be a fun day and hope everyone will enjoy the event. Congratulation to all newly recognized citizens of Australia.

Happy Australian Day to all.

Food shopping

Today, we went to supermarket to buy our food and household supplies. We almost end up going back home because the shopping centre car park was almost full that we can hardly find a parking for how many rounds we have tried. Hubby and I almost lost patience but lucky after a few minutes we finally get one but almost will give us trouble.  No wonder why it’s so busy, its weekend.

Anyway while inside the shop I’ll grab a catalogue special, I was happy to browse some specials I've seen. Those are most of the things I like to get which has many rewards bonus point. It’s not really a bad day at all despite the hassle in the car park, I’m lucky I was still able to avail the bonus points as it will finish two days after.  They also have raffle draw to win a Cookie Gift Baskets, I wasn't able to write my entry at the end of shopping, better lack next time for me.

After all the our shopping and trying to get everything from every aisle of the store to make sure we don't forget anything. We are off to check out and after that we stop by on a Sushi shop to get our favourite cooked tuna sushi, then head back home.

A Friend that's who I Need

This new year is a new life for everyone. My start of year was a bit sad and lonely not because of drama in life but because my good friends were all away at the moment. The other one were still on a family vacation at Sydney and the other friend just went back to the Philippines last week, her name is Joan, we became great friends and always see each other often. Lucky the three of us catch up for a lunch before Christmas and we'd exchanged Christmas Gifts. 

My routine in life will change again in the weekdays of my day off, I can’t meet up and hang out with her.  I can no longer make unannounced visit to her place any time before or after my work.  It will be unusual for  me, the six months she was her as a tourist we became very good friends. Our lives revolve with each other, like my work, with our partner and our friendship. She’s dear to me and our treatment compare to my other friends were different, we always feel at home when together and I’m glad our partner get along very well.

I will miss her, our chat on facebook and talk on the phone everyday.  She’s a friend indeed and a lovely friend to treasure.

I hope she’ll be backed her soon and her visa will get approve to settle her in Australia.
