There! There!

Yesterday, we had our dinner outside just like usual. Afzal was having his Nasi Goreng Ladna and Air Sirap Bandung when he looked up and say, there! there! I looked up and saw bird flying in the sky. Owh! my son can talk! although it was just a word, I felt relieved to know that he absorbed what I thought him all this while....I heard he said there before but not sure if he's really talking. but now, I'm sure enough that he is growing very, very, very..well..... I love you Afzal. Love you sooooo much. No one can tell how much mama loves you. From the very day I knew I was pregnant, I vowed to myself, i'll always be there for you....

ISUOG Congress In Singapore.

Yesterday, my friend told me to fill a form for a Congress. It will be held in Singapore. Actually Im not in a good financial state since a lot of things to settle down after buying a house ( just a small one actually). But, since my Head of Unit said that we can get cheaper fee if we register in group, then I think why shouldn't I? There goes my credit card for S$300. I told my husband about this before. Afzal is 1 year and 8 months by the time i'll be going there. Just for 3 days and he'll be okay. Btw, my MIL would be so much glad to have her fav grandson to stay with her for a weekend. I'm so excited now, knowing that it is still a long way to go. It is on April! and this is going to be my very first oversea course for me. Wish me all the best!

Working As A Sonographer in Malaysia

I'm a sonographer in government hospital and i've been doing this for almost 4 years now. I'm happy to be granted this job. Actually i'm a degree holder in Genetics but, since here in Malaysia, we have problems in getting a suitable job, so i'd secured this with my friend's help. I was trained by a 20-over-years sonographer and now I am, enjoying every little bits of sonography. I was thinking about making it big. Take courses and diplomas and doing my own research on my particular passion. I want to dig every single knowledge from this job.

Jokes of the day....

This morning, I had performed an ultrasound on a pregnant patient who is a foreigner. I thought she understand Malay. So, I asked her in Malay how many weeks her pregnancy is. She just kept silent and when i explained everything during the ultrasound, she asked me in English. "Why? You no speak English, I don't understand." I said "I'm sorry?" She repeated again. "Why? You no speak English." "Ow,ok nevermind." I said and asking in English while turning to his husband hoping that he would understand what I was trying to ask her."How many weeks is she and when is her due date?" Guess what he answered??? " I don't know the gender if it's a boy or a girl." Duh, I turn to the monitor and observed everything i could and tell them their baby is ok and it's a girl. Thank you....

The moral is, IF you really want to be a sonographer, ask yourself IF you are a very patient person as the situation above is only a small problem we will face and the challenges are more than that for you to face and deal with.
