Didn’t juggle my time too well today. Though I finished the ward rounds in record time (I call it the Tsunami rounds..don’t worry, patient care and welfare were not compromised!), and I did manage to go to the cardiac conference, I was late coming back to the asthma clinic!
I managed to sit through a one half hour talk on obesity in children and adults and it’s management. I also managed to sit through 35 minutes of a one hour talk on metabolic syndrome and it’s cardiovascular impact (sponsored by GSK). I also managed to browse through all the pharmaceutical booths, meet up with old friends, exchanged greetings and gossips (heh heh) and picked up a few freebies (the pickings are lean this time round….no car up for grabs for instance…heh heh).
What I failed to factor in was the horrible jam near the UM KL gate entrance! It being a Friday and many a pious people were congregating there for their friday prayers. The only bone I want to pick with them is their lack of civic consciousness in parking their cars and also thier callous attitude in jay walking all over the place causing a massive jam! Ugh!
Ok, the steam has been let out. I feel better. The asthma clinic is over. We had just over 40 patients which was more than manageable. I am going to the gym, then wash up, and head for the dinner symposium at KL Hilton (courtesy of Pfizer). And then…I am going home….where my heart is most happy!
And my mind is already dreaming of Beijing! Another 6 days to go……
