Taken this morning :)
Aidan waiting impatiently for his daddy to close the gate..

he's grown so much eh..

couldn't wait to get to school..

Rant #1
Dad's fine now..he's been discharged since the docs said he seems okay and that he's responding well to the meds and that he only needs to get some physio theraphy to strengthen his legs..

Wasn't too happy with the doctors at the hospitals actually..They were so bleddy smug..We'd asked for the doctor(s) who was i/c of him to explain his condition to us initially (that was 2 days ago) and the staff nurse had told us that the only time we could see them was during the morning ward rounds. She was unable to furnish us with much information you see (eg. when he can be discharged, what should we/he do to prevent further similar stroke incidents etc)..

So, I was there at 9.30 am in the morning and the doctors had already seen my dad and had moved on to another ward. I'd asked the staff nurse about it and she actually told me to go to that ward and speak to them directly. I was like err..kinda rude right? So I asked her to relay my request to see them after their rounds..And so the staff nurse approached them..and I could see the look of irritation of their faces as she spoke to them. I was outside the ward then, and that idiotic doctor looked up in exasperation and said in a booming voice "Who does she think she is. She says she thinks that she wants to see us, we must see her immediately issit? We are very busy you know! Ask her to wait for us!" Man..so bleddy rude! And to think that the staff nurse had actually wanted to me to approach them directly initially *^%&*_)*%^*.. bth man..such attitude. And I didn't say 'now'..i said after the rounds..idiots!

And also, while the physio therapist was seeing my dad, she'd indicated that she was quite worried that his arms muscles seemed to be rather weak and that he'd trouble raising his arms and stretching it. She said that it's best for him to see an orthopedist. So I told her whether they could arrange for an in-house orthopedist to see her. She hmm and hawed and said that only the doctors could arrange for that and it was not up to her level to order it..she could only recommend to the doctors but the doctors had to give the okay for it! I asked her whether the doctors knew abt my dad's arms condition..she replied in affirmative but their opinion was that he should just seek the orthopedic doctor as an outpatient (since he was to be discharged soon)..She sorta hinted that her views were often outweighed by the doctors so there was nothing she could do and gave me an apologetic look..Man..doubly TL with those bunch of doctors...

Even dad had something to say too [mind you, I didn't tell dad what had happened]. When they finally came back to the ward to talk to me and after they'd left..dad commented that they seemed unhappy that they were called back into the ward. He said that he could tell by their body language and the manner in which they were speaking..Yeah, that obvious eh..Was really glad that dad was gonna be discharged soon..

Dad with his grandson..

Rant #2

I thought that since the 2 tv stations are gonna merge soon, the 'other side' should at least panchan us a li'..But nooooooo!

Well, Wednesday@10pm on Ch 5 is the day of the makeover reality show : The Swan (burbur your fave show rite :P) but of coz on the very day when our [sponsored] blockbuster movie - Lara Croft : Tomb Raider is scheduled (Wed,10 Nov 04), they're countering with a tv premiere of Jurassic Park 3.......*sighhh* Yeah, I know Tomb Raider sucked big time but there's the babe Angelina Jolie whom I sure most people won't mind ogling at and it's based on everyone's former fave computer game..But darn, JP3 is bound to rate lah...the li' kiddos will definitely insist on staying late so that they can watch dinos go bonkers claiming that it's educational. there will be the aunties/uncles tuning in after they've finished watching their Ch 8 series (The Champion..*boink*)..and of coz the typical loyal Ch5 viewer who will watch whatever's on it and absolutely nothing on Ch i - even if there are decent shows (yeah, lotsa such people according to the daily ratings report I get *sighh*)...

So..for the first time in their short channel lifespan, Ch i will counter Ch 5's counter :D Lara Croft : Tomb Raider, the blockbuster tv premiere will start at 9pm on Ch i instead of 10pm..and this way, Ch 5 won't be able to counter our counter-countering coz there's news on 5 at 9.30pm which cannot be moved~..ladida...~

Heh..this is of coz another feeble attempt to get u guys to watch Ch i movies [it worked last time leh..our movie rated quite well :) ] . eh, no digicams to be won this time round but it's an okay movie lah..TV premiere somemore..Oh, the tv premiere of Bridget Jones's Diary will be shown on the 2nd Nov (Tuesday)..It's CSI 3 on Ch 5 on the same day [sponsored show so they can't counterprogramme *glee*] and I'm sure most CSI fans would have subscribed to cable and watch it umpteenth time on AXN or probably bought the bootleg version from JB so watch Ch i lah..and u can stand a chance to win premiere tiks to the sequel BJD : The Edge of Reason which is on the 3rd week of November :)

Yeah, I'm choosing to ignore the fact that most of u guys would have bought the bootleg DVD copies of the movies..and yeah, for those who prefer more offbeat/less commercialised titles in the month of Nov on Ch i, there also Being John Malkovich (gonna be heavily censored though) and A Night at the Roxbory just to name a few :P..

Oh..and it's very likely that I'm not on that merger namelist so I may be jobless soon *sighhhh* The official list should be announced on Tuesday so....

And again,we can always count on icered for inside info..

Oct. 29th, 2004 09:24 am (UTC)
urm...a li' tv won't hurt ur grades lah ..that's what i always tell my mom but erm..hmm, maybe that's not a good excuse..

Hmmm... I don't understand why.

Anyway, I'll ogle angelina jolie for U, if it'll help. ;p
Oct. 29th, 2004 08:51 am (UTC)
Yeah, it happens. People just can't be half-arsed to change channels to see what's on channel i. I'm one of them. Hahaha. So much so that unless it's advertised in a big way in the papers, I'd hardly change to channel i to see if there are any good movies there.

And Aidan has really grown so much! I still remember the last time I saw him... jeez, he was only about 6 months old then.

Heheh, I enjoyed Tomb Raider actually. I'm sure loads of guys did lah. Angelina Jolie!!! Wooot! Man, she displayed enormous, um, talent in that movie! LOL! Don't worry babe, I'll support your channel. :)

Man, Aidan has really grown! I guess the tee is courtesy of the playschool?
Oct. 29th, 2004 09:49 am (UTC)

What a handsome young fellow Aidan has grown up to be! The fringe is tres becoming...

I am glad to know your daddy will be (is?) discharged. It frightens me to think about what I would do when my parents grow older and weaker :(

Btw, I think Channel i has great shows (Law & Order, the slew of sitcoms etc)

Hey, didn't see your reply to my OC post - do/did you watch it? I thought of you since you're such a telejunkie, which incidentally, IS a good thing in your line. I'm positive you'd find a job easily, don't worry, dear.
Oct. 29th, 2004 09:18 am (UTC)
Yeah, his stroke is definitely a wakeup call for me..I have to admit..i've been dreading the time when my parents become sick..I've always been rather awed and somewhat afraid of my dad esp when i was younger and seeing him so frail and weak was kind of a shock to me..

Oh..I ♥ OC!! Didn't watch it on Ch5 though..courtesy of d/ls from the internet from my friend :)..Seth (Adam Brody) is just soooooooo cute and he & Summer makes such an adorable couple..Don't really care much of 'the other couple'..boring lah. But the clothes n houses are fab eh :) Love the storyline and clever scripting especially Seth's lines :D.. The parents are so cool too. Everyone's saying that its an updated Beverly Hills 90210 and that's so not true (in denial) ...
Oct. 29th, 2004 09:48 am (UTC)
My grandpa was so badly taken care of in TTSH too and my grandma insisted that we changed the hospital, which we did to Mt Alvernia. Grandma was totally pleased with the care given there (Mt A) that she instructed us to admit her there should anything happen to her, which we did too when she was hospitalised before her death. Then, for my dad, we also made the mistake sending him to SGH. They couldn't diagnose what was wrong with him!!! Could have killed him if not for the just in time diagnosis. Now we have instructions to all that should my parents need to be warded - it will be Gleneagles or Mt A. Fully understand your frustration.
Oct. 29th, 2004 10:24 am (UTC)
We brought him to TTS because his heart specialist was there and we thought it would be more convenient that way in terms of retrieving his records etc..didn't expect the 'service' to be so bad.

And in TTS, they are still setting up those emergency tents and patients are seen outside the hospitals..with just one visitor allowed into the A&E site..we were wondering whether it's just TTS that's doing it coz i thought it wasnt necessary anymore..
Oct. 29th, 2004 11:13 am (UTC)
Well if it helps, I thought JP3 sucked worse than Lara Croft. Heh. And Lara Croft had a better soundtrack too (which I bought an original copy okay :P)
Oct. 29th, 2004 12:30 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Hehe. When JP3 came out, I was like, "Huh? Another one?!".

Anyhow, sad to see Ch i News go. I absolutely disliked Ch 5's News 5 Tonight. *yawn*

My! Haven't read yr journal for a while and Aidan has become such a big handsome boy :-)

Sigh! I think this whole merger thing is disappointing. Was just speaking abt this with an old friend who's working in MWks. And...I didn't know icered was still active. Loads of crap in there!
Oct. 29th, 2004 05:33 pm (UTC)
yeah..everyone in the coy's rather down coz of the impending merger..but i guess most of us just wanna get it over with..and not make us wait anymore..

even tho icered is full of crap..some of the stuff there are quite true especially with some of the news leak. Info on the merger was 'reported' abt 2 weeks before it happened and the details were quite accurate...can always count on it for some tidbit of info but of coz we gotta take it with a pinch of salt :D
Oct. 29th, 2004 02:03 pm (UTC)
wah! he so big already ah? so fast!
Oct. 29th, 2004 05:40 pm (UTC)
yeah lor..and it's only been 1 year 10 months plus..scary hor :)
Oct. 29th, 2004 05:33 pm (UTC)
I'm watching Lara Croft!! It's nice what!! even though I've watched it on the big screen and got the DVD. HA! It's the 2nd one that sucked, but only just cos there's still Angie (the other one. :P)

but but but I dont have CSI:3 on bootleg DVD... mebbe can d/l... hahaha... hmmm...
Oct. 29th, 2004 05:41 pm (UTC)

awww i love the name aiden. i actually named my bike that once.
Oct. 29th, 2004 10:46 pm (UTC)
yeah..that's the only name i had in mind when i found out i was pregnant..I didn't even had any girls name in mind..If im planning for no.2 and it happens to be a girl..i would be at a loss on which name to choose..

what name did u end up giving ur bike? :)

oh..i've been wanting to ask u..what code do u use to create those component boxes with just pics alone? I've been scouring all the tutorials but i'm still not sure which one it is..very blur!

Aidan's grown up so much! I haven't been keeping up with your pics. He looks so different now! He looks slimmer yeah? Baby boys seem to get slimmer as they grow up. Lol. Well, at least thats what happened to my nephew as well.

Anyway, hope your dad's fine and wish him speedy recovery!
Oct. 29th, 2004 10:48 pm (UTC)
yeah..kids tend to lose their baby fats when they grow up..Aidan still has some chubbiness in him but i guess coz he's so active, he's considered 'slim' in view of the amt of food he eats!

Oct. 29th, 2004 09:44 pm (UTC)
He has grown so much!!!! Big boy liao lah and I like his bag and shoes *hehe*

*coers face* I don't really watch channel i or u for that matter *still covering face*
Oct. 29th, 2004 10:49 pm (UTC)
*bish*..so loyal to mcs ah hehe..

all our kids growing so fast eh..Herlene probably changed alot too.

oi..gonna try for no.4 like adele? *grin*

Other than his chubby cheeks, Aidan seems to have lost all his baby fats! And all grown up now! Babies grow up fast huh!

Wish your daddy a speedy recovery! Anyway, I had a terrible experience with the docs in NUH too when I was hospitalized a few months back! My mummy says that the docs are quite "ya-ya"! And called this particular doc the "papaya"! *hee*
Oct. 30th, 2004 08:59 am (UTC)
yeah..i've heard alot of pple recounting their bad experience with doctors at the hospitals..i hardly hear of any positive ones..
Oct. 30th, 2004 05:30 am (UTC)
the swan producers ought to be beaten up.

i will watch tomb raider coz (a) angelina is a babe. (b)when i saw the jurassic 3 trailer, i was totally surprised coz i didn't even know they made a part 3 (c) i hate mediacorp.

speaking of which, why would anyone be loyal to a station that changes its programs the way the fall of piss moves when there's a change in direction of wind?

and lucky for you, i've watched that particular episode of CSI already so i'm gonna be watching bridget jones!
Oct. 30th, 2004 08:58 am (UTC)
heh mcs is not that hateful lah..they r just plain aggressive and that's why they succeeded (at the expense of their revenue) and mw failed..U have to admit that their programming had improved alot since competition...and that's something that benefitted most tv viewers..

heh..since u've never knew that was JP3..doesnt make u wanna watch it to see what's it gonna be like?

hi...just got the chance to read friend's journals....glad your dad is ok now...and i understand your frustration when it comes to doctors...esp. government ones!! i would go to a private doctor, some specialist, e.g. gleneagles...and let the "professionals" get the files to be transferred so to save you guys the heartache and always in the unknown!! this is people's lives leh...sometimes i find doctors are so stucked up!! they lack compassions!!!!
