My my my how has it been more than three weeks since my last post?! Have I been that busy? I came back from KL on Valentines Day, which was also the eve of the eve of the lunar new year, and then whoosh, it was the festivities and went straight in to work immediately after.
It was lucky I had no date waiting for me to come back on the 14th, because there was a flight delay and by the time I touched down, it was closer to supper time zzz. And in case you’re wondering, I did not bump into Mr. Slow Dance at all the 10 days I was there. I was mainly kept in the training room, and was only let out for pee and lunch breaks. And everyday was so intense with information overload that nothing else crossed my mind.
Except shopping lol. Because I stayed the weekend and I had nothing to do with no one for company (and the wonderful exchange rate), I did what I did best. Let’s just say I bought sooooo many things that I had to buy another bag just to cart everything home hurhurhur. To be fair, my luggage was already 16.5kg when I left. Bought mostly clothes and underwear, but I also made new pair of spectacles and brought one of these babies home!
Damn. Maybe I should have bought one of each colour after all…. They’re so soft and cuddly and will you look at that goofy face! I know, I know, I’m 33 years old going on three ok. 😂😂😂
And then came Chinese New Year (CNY). We had our reunion dinner and then the usual visiting of relatives and collecting red packets. I’m still single so even though I’m kinda old to still be receiving them, I will not defy tradition lol. It was a bit awkward to be getting them from cousins my age though. And I HAVE to mention this, because miraculously, I did not get a single question of “Where’s your boyfriend?”, or “When are you getting married?” questions. Thank goodness they have all given up on me hahaha.
And just like that, another year of this has passed. On my first official day back to work on field, I went to visit my old customers who I’ve covered for about two years. Save for a couple of weird ones, I received a very warm welcome back from doctors and their clinic staff and I felt so happy. The feeling is mutual guys, I’m so happy to be back.
But the reality of covering the whole island by myself is slowly starting to sink in. At my past job, I was also a one-woman show, but the difference is that I didn’t really have to visit the government hospitals because my product is not in the formulary and will not get in for various reasons, and also, Infectious Diseases specialists are only a handful. For now, I’m mainly only seeing the Endocrinologists, but omg there’s so many of them and so many hospitals on this tiny island! It’s been a week now, and I haven’t even cleared half the hospitals on my list.
To make matters worse, I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to work or something because while I was on my break, everything was fine and dandy. The day I started work, I felt like I was coming down with something, and true enough, I’m now sick. I have this stupid cough and a sore throat. I’m already midway through my course of medication, and by right I should be getting better but noooo, I’m actually deteriorating. I now sound like a transvestite (sorry to all trannies), and I think my voice might be gone soon. Sigh.
So anyways, this is a summary (which is actually still quite lengthy lol) of the going-ons in my life the past 24 days or so. I foresee work getting more hectic once I really start to get into the groove of things so you may see/hear less of me.
But, so far so good. Still keeping my fingers crossed. I love what I do, so please let me love it even more. Please.
