Being OT#6

Tag with my name on it- nice!

Being a clinician, one need to always be up- to-date with the current info related to one's profession - as this would enable us to give the best treatment to our clients.

I guess, I'm more than blessed being part of JMC. This is because, this is my second year consecutively being sponsored to attend workshop/ training related to OT.

Thank you, JMC!

So, for this year, I attended the Pediatric Neurology Update 2016 held at QEH 1. This course were attended by Doctors, Therapist, Nurses and I think other professionals as well. Thus, I could see some familiar faces and yes, getting to know more OTs. 

Personally, this was among the best course I've attended so far. Mainly because I didn't fall asleep during the whole lectures? Haha. Not the main reason. But, yes, I was not asleep during the course as I was all ears to the lectures/topic being presented.

All the topics were actually very interesting and being an OT, it is a must know information - this applies especially to the common issues that  these special kids face. Here, you can really see how important OT roles is. For once, I am so happy that OT is well known here.

Overall, for the 3 days course, I can conclude that parents play a major and important roles in making these special kid's life better. Not that the therapist is not functioning at all, but therapist do helps in paving the way for parents so that they would be able to help their child more. So, it's a two way interactions; parents and therapist and not forgetting the child himself.

For me,  this course stimulated my interest working with special kids. I used to work with them and yes, I do miss it. But here in JMC, it is a bit difficult to deal with this cases given the department setting is not really appropriate. I did accept one case and during the session, I concerned more about the child safety rather than the therapy session.

Few of the therapist I met during the course were actually trying to motivate me to do more peads cases, to be more proactive. Honestly, I was scared. I know that they were trying to help me but somehow I feel lost and not sure where to start. Maybe, it's time to get out of my comfort zone, is it?

#Fingers-crossed. Looking forward to attend more training.

Being a confident women,

.....knows that she is loved, refuses to live in fear, is positive, recovers from setbacks, avoid comparison, takes action, does not live in "if only" and "what if"......

That was one of my new year's resolution back in 2014. Well, it is still an on-going process; as there were moments I felt like so far behind,outcast, insecure,alone.

With the recent event that was happening in my life, being confident is like an 'on-off' button for me. Most of the time, it's an off button but I managed to hide it away from the world. It is when I'm alone with myself that I started to fall apart.

It is indeed a rough journey, aite?

But, thankfully, God is always by my side. I can always lean on Him. The important lesson that I learnt from this event is that to always have faith in God, no matter how bad the situation looks like.

This is me.

This is me. :)

This is me. Well, I saw this post on Facebook last month and feel like, "Eh, macam saya tau."
Since I've been away from blogging for too long already,  I"ll start with this then .

I fear failure

I bet most of us are in the same boat, right? I have plans and I wanted to do a lot of things but yes, deep down, I am afraid that I won't be able to do it. Thus, leaving me somehow stuck in my own comfort zone; when I know that I can go far than this.

I love being home alone

During my uni years, I stayed in a single room for 6 semesters. So, I'm used to being alone and doing things on my own. There were times that I do feel scared being alone especially  during the short semester break (everybody went back home and left me alone in that floor) but I managed to get through it. As for now, there are still times that I stayed alone. Frankly speaking, I love it. This is because I have the freedom to do anything that I want to.

I want to get away

Yeah. I found my new interest. I want to get away from my usual routine at least once a year, to really see, explore things and to re-energized myself. My next get away would be this October. Looking forward. :)

I am always hungry

Haha. My favorite statement. I love food although at the same time, I'm worried about the figure on the scale.

I'm hard to understand

At times. I noticed that I tend to keep things only to myself. On purpose, sometimes.

I love surprise

I believe that it's within the nature, that we, women love surprises. Who doesn't, right? Especially on special occasion, like birthday. But, so far, I haven't received any that makes me go "Wow!" although I've always been a part of doing surprises for other people.

I love beaches

I love sitting and just stare blankly at the beaches. It makes me feel calm just by listening to the sound of it and experiencing the sea breeze. It helps clear my mind.

I have big dream

Indeed. I want to turn my hobby into business, I want to build a family, I want to be better than who I am today and the list goes on.

I talk to myself

Classic. I've been doing this since I was a kid. Not the monologue kind of type but really talk to myself as if I am having conversation with someone. Sound creepy. Haha
