Ipoh Hospital, Here I Come!

It's been confirmed. I am going to work in Ipoh General Hospital (Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun) for the next two years. KKM said that they cannot offer me a place in Seremban Hospital because all the places have already been filled, but gave me a choice between the Melaka and Ipoh Hospital. Although Melaka Hospital is nearer to home, I somehow prefer Ipoh Hostpital. Maybe it is because my mind was kind of set between Ipoh and Seremban and wasn't prepared for another new place. Or maybe it's because at least 4 of my friends are in Ipoh Hospital already and if I were to go there, I know I will have some familiar faces around me. I think my parents are rather disappointed that I didn't choose Melaka, but they are OK with Ipoh; after all, it's going to be me working there, so they let me make my own choice.

Well, anyway, the decision has been made. I'll be reporting for duty at the Ipoh Hospital on the 5th of December. That's next Friday!! Can you believe it? By this time next week, I'll be officially an employee of the Ipoh Hospital. I am a little excited, but very afraid. Afraid of what is to come. My extremely rusty brain needs to be oiled. I am praying that I get a good MO who is nice to me and teaches me stuff and doesn't shout at me too often and who doesn't give up on me (if I am slow).

It is going to be a really, really new experience for me. Not just working life. But living out of home life. Yes, I wasn't living at home when I was studying, but then, back then I was living in a hostel full of friends who go to class at about the same time and come back at about the same time. Or maybe it is not that different after all. Maybe the only difference will be the fact that now I am in Malaysia and not Russia. Oh, I just thought of 2 other differences - I won't do my laundry here and I am not going to cook for myself here. They have shops (with reasonable prices) for that!

I heard that I will be given government quarters and I can choose my roomate, but then I don't really know anyone who would like to be roomates with me for now. It's not that I am not a nice person, I am, but then my university friends already have roomates (they started working earlier) and am not that close with friends from other universities. I am not going to force anyone to be my roomate. Maybe I'll just leave it to the management to decide. Most of my time will probably be spent in the hospital itself, so I guess it doesn't really matter.

I got to go now. Have a meeting to attend (sounds quite professional, huh!).
