Charade game in the HND

Finally, I got to shampoo my hair after a few days (+ tidur petang). Never thought that this thing is taking its toll on my hair! This clerkship thingy… I try my best to enjoy this first week (and another 7 weeks to come). Alas, it put an irritating itch on my scalp.

I might be missing the Malaysian Family Day this Sunday… urgh, I am just about to flaunt off my Sudoku skills which I inherited from my mom. I certainly not be able to get my so longed for hair spa this Saturday, I am not sure when I'll have time for groceries shopping. Nonetheless, I'll make sure to hit the gym this Saturday morning! My muscles are deteriorating while the fats are proliferating – this is my biggest stress!!!

Last Tuesday night in HND (High Nursing Dependency), I was asked to take a serial blood pressure for 1 hour of this one suspected dengue patient. Which means I had to be there by his bedside, observing his conscious status (besides taking serial BP), without missing a slight second. The mother was there accompanying him while staring at me. It was an inept of awkward moment.

Kenapa lah ibu ni tengok I semacam jer... lapar ke??

Slowly I looked up at her with a little forced of smile on my face. Wanted to start some conversation, but something was hindering – we will both get into the state of 'missing in translation'. I tried, it didn't work. I even tried some sign language using my hands and my full expressions face, I looked stupid. As if we were on a charade game. They are from Madura. They don't even speak Bahasa Jawa that well. Hesitantly, I had to pretend to understand with dubious nods. But one thing I could understand… (Somehow I managed to get her understand) that I was trying to ask 'what is her job', and she said "mintak-mintak lek Jalan Bandung".


*flabbergasted for a few seconds*

She's a beggar!!!! Okay… calm down. It's not surprising. Here, 'begging' is a job. Job description : mintak-mintak, Address : Jalan Bandung.

Hmm… kesiannya!!!
No wonder she was staring at me with her pair of Puss In Boots eyes, that is a part of her job skill. Or could she be staring at my diamante watch?
