By the way, the whole almost 9 hours of travel was very unpleasant for me, I couldn't sleep & I couldn't even watch a movie because I was very worried. The weather was bad and we encountered so much air turbulence that the plane shook & rattled most of the time. You can imagine my relief when we finally landed@ Dubai International Airport @ 5 o'clock in the morning.
Wheeew! What an experience...
No words can ever explain how much loneliness I felt when it was time to say goodbye to JAMJAM. I didn't cry infront of her but I cried like a baby when I was in the plane going to Manila. I didn't care if there were people staring at me with worried look on their faces. This is the second time I'm going to be away from my daughter (the first was when I left for Taiwan in 2002). I know it's also hard for my baby, but I'm so glad she's grown up enough to understand the reason for my leaving. I'm so blessed to have a smart and kind daughter like her. JAM you're more than special and I love you so very much!
Here are some of the pictures we took @ People's Park, Davao City a day before my flight. Enjoy!
Today I'm so happy coz I chatted with my family, and my mama angel's there (she's not frequently home you know :-)...). I miss them all so much, and I thank God eternally for keeping them safe and happy always.
I have my off from work today and tomorrow, but I don't think I'd be going out. I haven't seen most of Dubai yet but Welcare HR Department is planning a Dubai Tour for the new employees, so I'll keep you guys updated with my Dubai exploration.
Have a blessed lenten season!!!

This gorgeous woman with me is Belle, she helped me get through the things I needed to know in the ward. And not only that, she also became a very special friend who's always there to cheer up a gloomy day!
Thanks for your friendship Belle...mmmwahhh!

Anyway, working as a healthcare assistant is not that hard. These are some of my responsibilities in pediatric ward and NICU:
- Bedmaking (chambermaid ang feeling hehehe)
- Giving newspaper (pero di ko naga bike ha!)
- Checking if equipments (i.e. incubators, IV & Syringe Infusion pumps, refrigerators, etc.) are working
- Taking vital signs and plotting to chart
- Feeding premature neonates
- Responding to patient's call
- Regulating and discontinuing IV infusions
- Retrieving medications from pharmacy
- Maintaining sufficient ward and NICU stocks and supplies
- Sending specimen to laboratory and follow up results
- Ensuring that equipments are clean and ready to use
For 3 weeks I'd be on a 5-day/week 10hours/shift duty. My off is on a weekend (Friday & Saturday ilang weekend diri hehehe). Then after that 12 hours per shift na, 4 days a week akong work with day and night rotations.
So long mga frens, I'll just keep you posted. Miss you all!!!

We roamed around Mall of Asia for the whole day while I was waiting for my flight to Dubai which was scheduled at midnight later that day. And we also went to a church near the mall (so sorry I forgot the name) and we strolled to a nearby "Manila Bay - looking" place (which also unfortunately I forgot the name LOL).
Girl I can't thank you more than enough for being such a great friend. See you next year...luv ya! mmmmmwah!
I think I'm going to like it here. In fact I feel at home already.
