SHEIKH KHALIFA MEDICAL CITY - my work place...

2009-07-23T16:55:48.457-07:00

(image)
SHEIKH KHALIFA MEDICAL CITY or SKMC is the lone government hospital in the entire of Abu Dhabi. It is named after the former president of the country UAE (United Arab Emirates) - Sheikh Khalifa.
SKMC is a MAGNET accreditted hospital, such accredittation implies conformance to the international standards set by the accreditting institution. There are only few hospitals who were able to pass the MAGNET accreditation, one of which is SKMC - the only one in the entire of middle east.
To date, I have been assigned in the Cardiac ICU. There have been plenty of things that I need to know and I need to adjust on to but I am taking one thing at a time. Very honestly I have been learning a lot of things and procedures which I have not encountered in my almost 5 years of experience in the Philippines. In the picture is my uniform in SKMC.



My place in ABU DHABI ...

A part of my contract in my work here in Abu Dhabi, we were promised to have an accomodation of our own. True enough we were housed in a three storey villa with complete amenities and furnitures. Each room has 42 inches flat plasma TV with a very soft bed. A very good centralized air conditioning system is more than capable enough to take care the scorching heat of the sun.

The villa is so spacious that the 9 of us housed in this villa seldom see each other. Security guards are on look 24/7 so you are very much certain that everything will be fine within the compound.

A coaster will fetch us at specific time schedules every time we go to the hospital for our duties. Telephones are free and so is the TFC. Whats making me miss the Philippines? There are plenty of things I miss in my country but the very thing I missed so much?..... Hearing the sound of raindrops falling in my head.... huhuhuhhuhu...



My brother in law in China is suddenly making me nuts!

2009-07-23T15:41:32.881-07:00

supercharger,
buick supercharger,
mercedes supercharger,
pontiac supercharger,

These are just few of the way too alien words my brother in law kept on mumbling. He actually has this new Mercedes and a friend told him techniques on how to boost up the performance of his car and when he found out how effective it was he suddenly became so fanatic about these supercharger thing.

He was so fanatic on that thing that he even insisted that my other brother living here in the Philippines get a Nissan Supercharger for his newly bought Nissan car. What has gotten into him? He is really starting to get serious over these. But I talked to my sister, my brother in law's wife she said the reason why he is acting like that was because he was so delighted of the effects these supercharger thing did to his car. Very speedy experience huh, way to go bro!



NEW BUDDIES IN ABU DHABI

On these pics are my new buddies in Abu Dhabi, as everybody know so well, I have been quite lucky enough to work in one of the finest Cities in the Middle East - Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the country United Arab Emirates. The country have 7 emirates and one of which is the emirate where I worked ; Abu Dhabi. The very famous Dubai is just one of the 7 emirates of UAE, Rumors has it that Dubai is abetter place than in Abu Dhabi. But others said that it is not so much nice to live their as it is a relatively more expensive city compared to that of the Abu Dhabi.

Nonetheless, mine is concern not of wherever is the most expensive emirate, what I know is that both emirates are both very hot cities, and when I say it's hot? it is indeed way too hot!!!



Satellite TV ... what it is all about.

2009-07-23T15:24:39.543-07:00

My coming here to Abu Dhabi was quite a blessing, my mom who's been mocking me to wake me up every morning has been miles away, jejeje.. my bro in the US who keeps calling me up and kept bragging on what's new and what's hot have been quite so tame lately... or so I thought.
Kriiiiing... my mobile screamed, and wallah! Its my brother again. Amazingly he has been not so nosy on what I have been doing here, rather he kept on talking about Direct TV Promos and things about satellite TV. When I searched the net what I found was that these satellite television is a television delivered by means of communication satellite and is reveived by a satellite dish and a set-top box. I also learned that in many areas of the world these satellite televisions are able to provide a wide range of channels and services, often to areas that are not serviced by terrestrial or cable providers.

Really now, how advance can some other places get. My brother was even thankful that he was able to see this Satellite TV deals flashed in the screen of his televison, in fact he is way too excited to grab one of his own now. Yeah, that's my bro he never changes. but considering the advantages my bro cited when he talked about this satellite tv, hmmmm I think, it's worth a try.

(image) SWINE FLU - SYMPTOMS


The symptoms of swine flu are broadly the same as those of ordinary flu, but may be more severe and cause more serious complications.

The typical symptoms are:

Other symptoms may include:

- headache
- tiredness
- chills
- aching muscles
- limb or joint pain
- diarrhoea or stomach upset
- sore throat
- runny nose
- sneezing
- loss of appetite

If the flu becomes pandemic, potentially, everyone is at risk because few people, if any at all, will have immunity (resistance) to it.

If you have any of these symptoms but a flu pandemic has not been announced, you could have seasonal flu.




Malou's dilemma ...

2009-05-17T05:06:25.190-07:00

Used to be when I was still a medical representative I often have a difficult time making my booth presentable every time there are round table discussions, lectures, seminars and conferences. I have innovate and be resourceful, aside from thinking all the pressures I get every time I think of my sales quota I get to be pressured with things like this.

My friend Malou who used to be in the same company where I used to be working is now based in the US. We talked of different things we used to be doing when we were still in the same company. She said she is still working in the pharmaceutical industry as of now. And guess what, a great relief in her work! She was able to encounter this site in the net ->
http://www.camelbackdisplays.com/ . She said this has helped her a lot in her work. Everytime there are conventions and the likes she always can depend on them of the thing she need like pipes and drapes for her booth, banner stands for every product for promotion and even table skirts . It's like unloading on them some tasks which are equally important in your job and making your self more focused on some other important thing. It's really a relief!!!

Malou even recommended the site to some of her friends who needed to arrange for trade show booths . Well, anyway Im honestly happy for my friend now. Goodluck Malou!!! I'm hoping to see you again soon, probably in the other part of the globe. Love yah!







Deployment date moved to MAY 29 !!!

2009-05-15T00:45:29.925-07:00

Astonished!

Stoned by the news I received today. Our deployment date was moved to May 29 instead of May 17. Which means I am stranded in Manila for quite a period of time. I am just actually taking things proactively. That is conditioning my mind that the delay would mean ample of time for me to know more of Metro Manila, that would have to entail a lot of strolling and walking and bar hopping and probably some beer drinking sessions. Hmmm I'm starting to find it fascinating.

To all my friends in Davao. I'm starting to miss you guyz, but I know we will soon be seeing again, Singapore? Right? Till then.



DAVID COOK and DAVID ARCHULETA live in Manila!

It was late part of 2008 when David Cook announced that he will possibly come to Manila on the first quarter of 2009. Everybody got so excited then, yet, he was not able to show up maybe due to other priorities and constraints.

And then just few weeks ago, not sure if the announcement came directly from Jomari Yllana, but there were hearsays that he’ll be the one producing David Cook’s concert and this time, he’ll be with David Archuleta.

With the recent happenings and updates, I think the long wait is over as David Cook and David Archuleta made a confirmation through their video blog entry (which can also be found on youtube).

David Cook, winner of season 7 of American Idol, is coming to Manila soon, together with his runner-up David Archuleta. The upcoming concert will be on May 16 at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds.

Ricky Hatton found himself on the ground losing the fight and failing the entire of his british fans. Meanwhile the Pacquiao supporters have been chanting loudly Pacquiao's name as a sign of vocal admiration. Manny Pacquiao is definitely a force to reckon with.

In as far as the boxing world is concerned the words - MANNY PACQUAIO is not just a name of a boxer, it also means GREAT BOXING POWER!!!



"Twilight" role at stake in German reality show

2009-04-26T04:45:38.890-07:00

(image)
(image)
COLOGNE, Germany - The words "casting couch" spring to mind when you hear the concept of a new German reality show: 12 young actresses compete for a role in a Hollywood production.

But "Mission Hollywood" is no joke. The show, which premieres June 8 in primetime on leading German network RTL, features Til Schweiger, Germany's biggest star, and the prize -- a role in one of the "Twilight" sequels -- is enough to entice even the most skeptical would-be thespian.

RTL and production house Tresor TV also have secured an impressive lineup of jury judges to assess the talent. Permanent jury members Schweiger and famed acting coach Bernhard Hiller will be joined every week by a third juror, among them Carmen Electra, producer Erwin Stoff and German A-list actors Thomas Kretschmann and Moritz Bleibtreu.

"Mission Hollywood" hopes to capitalize on the phenomenal ratings success of casting shows like "Germany's Next Top Model," which has become a flagship hit for RTL competitor Pro7.

As on the modeling show, contestants on "Mission Hollywood" will have to go through the motions of the real job -- carrying out stunts and re-enacting classic movie scenes from films such as "Dirty Dancing," "Misery" and "9 1/2 Weeks."

Yes, you will never be a criminal because there is no way that you will know the caller on the next line. It's annoying, yes... but, that's just life... NO !!!

You don't have to be bothered by these good for nothing callers who keeps you awake in the middle of the night just so that they can have somebody to annoy with their foolishness, that's plain pathetic.

“Is it safe to use anybody’s razor?”

(image) (image)


NO.

An infectious disease expert in an institution in Atlanta says it is very dangerous to use anybody’s razor. If your man has cold sores, warts or hepatitis B or C (which can lead to harmful liver diseases), the virus could be living in his razor. Then when you use it, the viral villains can invade your bloodstream through microscopic nicks from shaving.
What’s more, hepatitis B and C which may also be spread via sex don’t always produce outward symptoms, so you and your guy could be unknowingly infected. To play it safe, avoid using any items that could harbor small amounts of his blood, including toothbrushes and nail clippers.



WHAT IS...

2009-04-24T04:06:13.537-07:00

Allergies
An allergic reaction involves two features of the human immune response. One is the production of immunoglobulin E (IgE), a type of protein called an antibody that circulates through the blood. The other is the mast cell, a specific cell that occurs in all body tissues but is especially common in areas of the body that are typical sites of allergic reactions, including the nose and throat, lungs, skin, and gastrointestinal tract.



when you need them - Boston Limousine Service

2009-04-24T03:06:59.908-07:00

After a not so busy work in the hospital, I had the chance to check on my peers through facebook in the internet. It's so amazing indeed how a lot of people so far yet are able to exchange ideas, experiences and even pictures via the internet.

A friend of mine in California actually was bragging about the car he had just bought few weeks ago. I really didn't notice what kind of car he had bought I probably had it by intention because of envy, perhaps.

Shiela, used to be the only bachelorette among my friends in the US has finally decided to tie the knots. In fact she really prepared evidences of her wedding ceremony, jejeje...

And wow! really amazing... not the bride neither the groom - the wedding car!!! A limousine! very elegant and seemingly very expensive. I was amazed how wonderful the car is, that I'd die longing to have it. I even asked her where she borrowed the car, I'm quite sure she can"t afford it herself.

And I was right! She said it's a Boston Limousine! She said she had it rented in one of the sites she found in the internet. I see, when I browsed the site, indeed I was able to see a lot of Boston Limousines and not only they offer their Boston Limousine Service for wedding but for any other corporate functions as well... But really, how I wish I had one of those...

Diabetes
Diabetes
is a disorder in which the body cannot convert foods properly into the energy needed for daily activities. Diabetes tends to get passed on genetically but factors other than heredity are responsible as well. There are two main types of diabetes. Type I, or insulin-dependent, is the more severe for of the disease. Type II, or adult onset, is the more common form and accounts for more than 85% of all cases. Diabetes cannot be cured, but it can be controlled. Control requires carefully regulating one's diet, regular exercise, and, if necessary, insulin.

Watch this video about Regine Velasquez and tell me how soon this lady can have laryngeal cancer.

By no doubt this lady had earned her popularity belting out songs. She has been tagged of many names already. A bankable star? Perhaps.

But I don't know about this lady, although I like the way she sings but I was kinda thinking if it really doesn't hurt in the throat? It has been a given fact that she has been gaining followers already but I really think that what she's doing isn't really healthy for her self. What do you think ?



Hawaii Design - what they touch turns to...

2009-04-23T01:12:46.329-07:00

Being a former medical representative of a multinational company I have been somehow trained on how to enhance the marketability of a certain product. And what I have learned so far was that aside from a bundle of product knowledge you need to convince your clients you also need to consider adding up visuals, something that your client needs to feast his/her eye on.

There is always a kid in us, and that aspect of our being seeks for something pleasant to our eyes, something that amaze, something that bluffs , that is probably the reason why most candies are made with bright colors.

Hawaii Design - here is an internet entity who says; " We love traffic, we love design and we love to put them together into amazing websites ".

More than being an internet entity they thrive exactly in the world of marketing and the way I see it as I read their site, they have their unique way of doing the business they call marketing, and it seemed to work for most of their clienteles.

No wonder, Hawaii Design is making waves not just only in Hawaii but also in a bigger pacific they call the world of internet. The picture above may already be soothing and relaxing to the eye, but what Hawaii Design touches becomes one brilliant soothing and relaxing marketing armor specially designed for its target.

But did you know that changing your diet may ease your hay fever? In a study in the European Journal- Allergy, subjects whose diets were high in oleic acid, (a monounsaturated fat found in olive oil), had an increased risk of hay fever. But a diet high in eicosapentaenoic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid found mostly in fatty fish, lessened the risk.
The research also found that, among women, a diet high in beta-carotene boosted the chance of hay fever, while vitamin E suppressed it.



it's not just a bag, it's a Retail Bag

2009-04-22T22:54:07.770-07:00

Imagine this, you went shopping to this very huge mall, neat, clean and very elegant. Thinking that it is the best mall where you can find the best things you think suited your moneys worth, you went straight ahead of the 10th floor looking for different apparels and perfumes perhaps.When you went your way to the boutique which first caught your eye, you happen to have your eyes glued on a very stylish dress the mannequin is wearing, stylish indeed that it costs more than half of the paycheck you have received a week ago. So you scrutinized the dress well, thinking probably of the very occasion when you're going to wear that dress. Then you decided. That dress will go to my closet! You take out your credit card and told the mall assistant that you're going to get that dress. The mall assistant in an instant got you that dress and billed you accordingly, after which she wrapped that same dress in a roll using an old news paper of you don't know what issue that was! And it was undoubtedly a total nightmare! A disaster! A stylish, elegant dress wrapped in an old newspaper!The world of marketing is stiff, it has competitors looking always at you when you take your false move. A part of marketing is making your merchandise presentable before and after it is bought out from your store. Good marketing thinking will tell you that you just can't wrap expensive shoes and stylish clothes with an old piece of paper or whatever it is. That is exactly the reason why there are; Retail Bags... What better way can you think to promote your retail products is through the bags it comes along with. Different sizes of bags of different shapes and colors which somehow depicts the kind of business you got.Bags, bags, bags and a lot of bags - but it is not just any other bags they are ; Retail Bag. All types of bags are available in clear or color films; they may sometimes be white, black, blue, red, yellow, gray, green in both tints and opaque stylish designs. And they also have bags available with bottom gussets, tapered lips, perforated lips, inside or outside flips, air holes, butterfly vents and hanger cut outs. These bags will not just wrap your merchandise appropriately but will give your customers the impression that they are served by professionals.Remember it's not just a bag, it's a Retail Bag.[...]

Heartburn Relief: 5 Questions to Ask Your Pharmacist

One in 10 Americans has heartburn or acid reflux at least once a week, according to the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA). Whether you're one of the lucky few who generally has an iron stomach -- or you need heartburn relief nearly every day -- rest assured: You can soothe the burn.

Start by getting to know your local pharmacist. Uniquely trained in drug interactions and side effects, pharmacists can help you look at the medications you're already taking, uncover any potential side effects and drug interactions, and offer safe solutions for heartburn relief. Write out your full list of medications -- including all prescription and over-the-counter drugs, any herbal or other natural remedies, and all vitamin and mineral supplements you're taking. Take it with you to the pharmacist and go over it together.

To start you on your way, here are seven key questions to ask your pharmacist about heartburn relief. You may want to print out this list and take it with you to the pharmacy.
1. Could medications I'm taking be causing my heartburn?

Heartburn is a common side effect of many medications, from aspirin to osteoporosis drugs to steroids.
2. Can I just wait and hope my heartburn goes away?

Simple heartburn that passes relatively quickly isn't dangerous -- certainly not life-threatening. But chronic, severe heartburn, especially with acid reflux, can eventually damage your esophagus if left untreated.
3. What's a safe, simple heartburn treatment?

Many doctors and pharmacists suggest over-the-counter antacids for occasional heartburn. If heartburn symptoms persist, your doctor may suggest drugs such as Aciphex, Prevacid, Prilosec, Protonix, Nexium, or Zegerid to reduce the stomach's production of acid, or Reglan to make the stomach empty itself faster. Your pharmacist or your doctor can explain how each drug works, and what to expect.
4. Are there lifestyle changes that bring heartburn relief?

One safe, first step is to cut out any foods and drinks that trigger your heartburn symptoms. Coffee, chocolate, carbonated drinks, spicy foods, tomatoes, citrus fruits, and alcohol are common heartburn triggers. With heartburn, eating smaller meals and avoiding food for two to three hours before bedtime can ease symptoms. Cutting out smoking and losing weight if you're overweight can also relieve heartburn.
5. How long does it take for heartburn treatment to work?

The answer depends on whether you're about to try an over-the-counter antacid or a long-term prescription drug. Each heartburn treatment works differently, but in general:

* Antacids like Tums work instantly but wear off quickly. Antacids work best if taken 30 to 60 minutes before eating.
* Histamine blockers take effect in about an hour but must be taken twice a day for heartburn prevention.

Proton pump inhibitors are the most powerful drugs but may not provide immediate relief because they act slowly. These drugs must be taken every day to be effective.



Me, my monster bed and my lost good night sleep...

2009-04-22T21:39:44.848-07:00

I was feeling quite hot tempered lately probably because I wasn't able to get much sleep. My monster bed kept on squeaking all night that I didn't get my most precious sleep leaving me half awake almost the entire part of my supposed to be good night sleep.

And whats rather more annoying is that my monster bed moves also every time I move. This is torture on the very sense of the word! How I wish I had a sleeping pill with me so that I won't be able to notice how annoying my bed was.

The day after my night of torment, I had decided to look at some new elegant designs of bed on the net. (Yes, I am going to fire that bed inside my room! and when I said fire what I meant was to literally lit a fire on it, jejejeeje kidding...)

Consequently, I came across this website of Time4sleep in the net and among the many Metal Beds displayed on their website what caught my eye the most was the Windsor design. It seemed very still, very regal and big.

You see, I am a person who spends more than half of my vacant time at room. Most often, I am on my bed during breakfast, lunch and dinner. The TV and the DVD player is just actually in my room so I don't get to go out of my room that often and this Metal Beds - Windsor design is I think just the right match for me. By the way it looks, this type of Metal Beds seemed very durable. Hmmmmm.... I wonder how fast it can be delivered if I will order one ? I'll better call my bro in US first for some, you know... jejeje assistance... mwuah!

These are some of the pictures taken when nurses went mad for a night. jejeje. Me and my friends actually decided to shrug off some stress from work so we agreed to go to a bar and dance and drink the whole night.

Fun? Indeed. Not only that we meet new friends but we were able to learn more about some of us. Divine (a nursing attendant) for one is a revelation, we really don't have any slightest idea that she can dance and wow! she can grind and do some pole dancing as well, way to go Divine!

Who else was there?
Brigitte the not so "ma arte" staff of eastwing, Karissa, the look alike of olive; wifey of popeye, Frauline... hmmm wonder where Frauine is in the pic, Melody- Nurse slash retailer of soap slash real estate agent, Annie the "batumbakal" lady, Yam - the lord of redhorse, Paul - the badminton hottie, Earl- the hottie Shiela - another hottie and Heidiz - the nottie... jejeje till then
