Today intended to go work abit late so I'll come back later too. Manage to FaceTime with daddy @serhonp together with Isaac. He was in a good mood this morning. Smiling and calling daddy and showing off some stunts while FaceTime.
The bus came at 8.19am just right after I reached the bus stop.
Everything is so sunny and bright at this time! Makes a world of difference to my mood.
So I lied. I had eggs again for breakfast. And bacon. Bacon makes everything better.
#stalkermomseries time!!! I see @maryannsee grandma video/taking pic of #isaacpuah playing his toys.
He can identify the shapes of the toys and slot in to the appropriate slots very fast now. Can turn the angle of the shape to fit it in fast fast sumore.
He has been doing this since he was less than a year. Show off. After he's done he will clap his own hand. Very good. Haha
Too hungry after pumping. Having my leftover fries for snack to tahan till lunch! Sweet potato baked fries FTW!!
Loving my leftover chorizo burger lunch!!
Omg look. Macam trial of destruction and my mummy @maryannsee looks like give up beh tahan already. Hahaha #stalkermumseries. Everything open toys and vehicles everywhere. #isaac u better learn how to keep things and put it back where you took them from!
Today was a low motivation at work day. I know what is wrong. I have no passion in what I do.
Previously I was a clinical pharmacist, practicing in the wards, counseling patients. I loved it.
Explaining to them what diabetes is, anti coagulant, the importance of taking your medication; basically interaction with patients. I do feel satisfied I'm able to help them in management of their disease.
I also loved that doctors from houseman to senior consultant and head of department look for me
To discuss treatment regimen for the patients, then follow up on their medication compliance and counseling everything under the sun on their disease, compliance to medication, lifestyle changes.
Pharmacist got more time to 1 on 1 with patients and specifically I was stationed in the ward. Had my store room office there
Love the nurses who always come to me to double confirm their work etc.
I miss that!!
Having said that I know I can never practice here again in Singapore.
1 major hindrance is my degree is not recognized even with my 6-8 years clinical experience.
2) in order to get myself registered as a pharmacist here I need to work 2 years as a pharmacy technician + 1 year studying bridging course at NUS (which will cost SGD20k min) + 1 year preregistration (houseman pharmacist like that) + 3 years conditional licensing.
All this get paid peanuts. I have a family and commitments to set
Settle. So I can't do that especially finances are drained moving my whole life to Singapore.
So did the next best thing and manage to get a job approving drugs with the health authority.
Then something happen with my son with all his food allergy and hospitalization made me lose focus at work.
I tahan for 6-8 months after all the ordeal and I realize I burn out already mentally. I truly couldn't focus and resigned.
My boss even though very understanding was quite sad la I left. But it
I wanted to take care of isaacs health. After 3 months of staying home he grew!!!!
From almost failure to thrive and his weight and height growth chart percentile dropped 2 major lines (from 85% to 15%) he picked up. And now currently 50% percentile of the growth chart.
Because finances are tight, after that I looked for a job once he recovered la.
I'm lucky I manage to get a job after less than 2 months of looking.
Manage to get into a good company too thanks to my previous working experience.
But with the office politics, it's kinda draining the soul. And it's truly cementing that this is just a job and not a career.
Job satisfaction is very low.
I want to change it!
I'm bidding my time, looking for opportunities and learning that there is more to life than this.
I'm slowly figuring out what I like to do already. Now just need a plan. And the right time.
Dinner tonight quite Asian
Lemon ginger chicken with Asian sautéed bokchoy
Having some clean snacks. Banana, frozen cherries, macadamia nut butter and coconut milk.
