Thoughts for the week so far.

  1. Alexandra Hospital is a resort masquerading as a hospital! The peaceful old colonial building is a perfect place to recuperate.
  2. The cafeteria food is bad, though. Loads of measures to induce people to eat healthily - eg veg dishes are much cheaper than meat, grilled chicken cheaper than fried chicken, etc. Too healthy food is not delicious.
  3. Was poked in the face (almost in the eyes) by an Ah Por today. Think it was her way of saying hi.
  4. Sat through an hour long lecture on incontinence, a common problem in the elderly.
  5. Am impressed with the efforts of the geriatric ward staff (doctors, nurses, physio, speech therapists, etc) to provide hollistic care for our patients.
  6. Bought a used copy of Jules Verne's book Journey to the Center of the Earth for $2. Twenty Thousand Leages under the Sea is one of my favourite novels.
  7. According to the valued opinion of my friend Marky Ong, if I carry a kid's backpack...
