LATE updates...

I had been burying myself in the midst of books for my finals. I had to sit for 2 written paper- one for second year finals and the other one for both first and second year materials (VIA) and also one practical(OSCE). It had all been so stressful and I could hardly find time to breathe. But it is all over now! I admit that I am not all so confident about the result for VIA but I am just thankful that I have gone through everything without breaking down. I have heard from the seniors that second and fourth years are the most stressful ones due to the ever increasing amount of assignments as well as the VIA paper.

I am so blessed to have mom and Ryan who are always providing me support. Yu Wan, as always, cooked for us. xoxo!!!! Fawn also baked muffins for us!


SO, finally I can sweep the 'dust' away from my blog!

I should have blogged about my rural placement 6 months ago but somehow I totally put that at the back of my mind! My experience in Bairnsdale was really awesome. I managed to follow tha social worker to a nursing home and chatted with some patients with mental issues. I also got my first chance to inject a real patient, not a mannequin arm! I was a bit daunted at first since he was a schizophrenic but he was so amiable that I had to thank him for letting me to inject his medication. I also went to the famous Buchan cave. Of course Bairnsdale was where I met some really approachable seniors-- Leo and Su Lynn.

This was my accomodation-- a 4 star resort!

Brendan taught me how to fish! This tiny guy bit on the hook in less than 5 minutes after I casted my rod into the lake in the first photo...

The autumn scenery around Buchan Cave...

The stalactites and stalacmites in the cave!

As for my hospital attachment, it will be in Dandenong hospital next year. I was so keen to get into The Alfred but it was really a popular choice. Dandenong is a small hospital but I heard that staff there are really helpful to 'lost' third year students. I am just so excited about next year! Some of the head of the hospitals briefed us on hospital life and told us that patients may just decide to call us doctors.... ^^ So I will be Dr. Ho next year!!!!!!!!!! But I will definitely miss the Deakinians...thanks for giving me a wonderful time this year

This is the photo for our recent gathering in Nandos...

I also attended Yee Herng's graduation ceremony in La Trobe University last month. The journey was a good 2 hours from Monash. Ryan was with me and we had a good time enjoying the architecture of the campus and also talking to Yee Herng and her family. It maybe too late a wish, still-- Happy graduation, Yee Herng! I wish I have graduated too!

These are the pictures from Facebook...

Its time to slack and find a house for next year! Maybe I should get a car...
