About 6pm last night I was called by my friend,asking me to try his new experiment.."Sadiki"..At first I was hesitant because it is still Ramadan,but also I am afraid that somebody will report that we are having a drinking session..Anyway to make the story short, I try a small mineral bottle for me..so shock!!ang sarap pala tumagay kahit bawal kasi Ramadan at nasa Saudi tayo..Minutes,Hours and after this..I got drunk already and need to sleep,but sad to think I could not sleep while I am on my bed..An hour later,firealarm rangs loudly..I got up and check what happen downstairs..it was just a smoke as dining reported..later I comeback in my room about 12 midnight and got my sleep well..Kahit na inuubo,nakatulog pa rin dahil sa Vicks Vaporub..iba talaga ang gamot na may "Haplos ng Pagmamahal"..

I was just sitting in my clinic,when a regular call was made by the Dispatcher,informing me that one guy was having some back pain radiating to his left leg.I have known for the guy because he was my patient last 1 week ago,2 times he came and reported that he was having those pain.I go up and bring along my equipments.He was stable when I check.I ask him if I could give him an injection for pain.he said..No!!I am on fasting..instead I initiate a 110 call(Emergency Call) while monitoring the patient.He told to me that the pain is bearable when he is sitting down,but when he attempts to walk,the pain become more.Since he refused the pain reliever,I just let him sit down and re-assured that the doctor and 2 nurses will come to take him for further pain management and evaluation.The doctor arrived and convince that injection be given..patient agrees without hesitation after the doctor explain.Both of them understand each other as they speak fluent Arabic..After this ,the patient was brought to other Clinic for observation by chopper..after that he was refered to his designated facilities at Al- Mouwasat Dammam.Then a report has been made out of this..and it's clear..it was audited with full of criticism.Documentation was not clear for Audits..No one is perfect!!I admit I commit errors or mistake,but also I did what is best for my patient's life...Anyway..Criticism was done not only to correct mistakes but also to remind you what is best and appropriate management you do,in case of this kind of patient..Cheers to everybody!!

I was tired from yesterday play..Table Tennis..we got a new here in my offshore clinic and it's my first time to play here.We played almost 2 hours and after that I got some bodypain and backaches..But the thing I like was, I feel I have burned a lot of calories in my body and I feel so relaxed even I got body pain and backaches.I took a bath and get some time to relax,watch news in TV, chat with my friend in Jeddah(classmate in college)..and about 10 pm last night,I sleep so I can have 7-8 hours sleep before I go to my duty early morning.This morning I still have some body pain and backaches and I think this will be relieved if I continue what I have done,playing table tennis every night..I just have my breakfast,scrumbled egg with sausage and coffee with milk..I am now in my clinic, doing the daily routine activities..but until now I could not format my external hardware,11 hours after I click format and start..formating did not push thru..anyone knows how to do it..sayang kasi 160 gega ang external hardware ko..hahay..buhay saudi..nakakaloka...talaga!!

I was just listening the music since this morning, from my external hardware,with the use of my laptop,when suddenly I pullout my external hardware,without knowing what would happen to my files in my external hardware.This afternoon,I try to use my external hardware(160 gega),I wonder why I could not see my files in my external hardware.I try to see the properties in my external hardware,but it is already full..how could this happen??I still have almost 100 gega free space this morning??then I go to my friend and tell him what happen..he said..you know you have to reformat your external hardware,and you gonna lost all your files because your external hardware was corrupt and for reformat...ohhh..so sad..but some of my files was still in my PC..what about the others..movie..music..oh..I think my friend here has a copy..do you have it,I ask him?..no probs friend!!I still have it and you can have a copy of it..I said..thanks..instead of being sad..I was still a happy man today because I can still put back my old files in my external hardware..Next time,I will not remove my external hardware,without an advise that device or USB is safe to remove.It was a great lesson on my part.

Wake up at 5:30am,then after that..I'll go to bathroom..by 6am in the morning,hopefully I am in the clinic,doing my checklist,checking my instrument if it is still working or not, check e-mails in my outlook,get a cup of milk with coffee,bread and fried egg for breakfast.Report back to clinic,entertain patients on no patient at all the whole day.Since this is Ramadan time,we go for Lunch by 11am,usually our Lunch was at 12 noon.Our Dinner is now at 5am, too early and sometimes at 11pm,I am a little bit hungry..eowwwww...but right now..I am just sitting down in my clinic,without much nothing to do,just finish my report and I pass it last 2 days ago.. thanks for now, am not busy!!Night time was our relaxation time,we play cards (Pusoy Dos)..usually I end up as losers because I am still learning the card game,but it's good..gradually I can improve my game the next time we play..maybe after a month..ha ha ha..then after that..we will watch news in my room,since most of my pinoy friends don't have internet access..this is the usual thing we do in offshore..after the news..it's about time to sleep..so the routine itself was so bored..it's like you are put in jail..Nakakaloka talaga ang buhay dito!!
Last month I was assigned to go back from my original clinic at onshore,I was so happy and in fact I enjoy my stay there for a couple of weeks, sad to think that on that stay also my internet access was taken from me,so sad that I could not imagine that i could not open my friendster anymore,my yahoo mail and everything.After a week on that situation, I was sent back to my original clinic at offshore,still awaiting for my internet access..paano na si Catherine,paano na si Isadora,di ko na sila mapapanood,ang paborito kung prime time bida na Iisa Pa lamang..after a week,my supervisor check on my clinic to see if I have done my job well in offshore,after doing the check..he said..youre done a great job here,you have updated everything..ok this week your internet access will be back..ohhhhhhh!!really..thanks sir!!I really wanted it back..now I got my internet access..I can enjoy now watching news in internet,reading newspaper,sending e-mails and uploading pictures for my friendster..
