Joke of the day

I was suppose to meet a friend from Ipoh who will be arriving at Singapore Changi Airport.  I didn't ask for the flight number, can said I absent minded lah, forgot to ask.  The flight supposed to land at Terminal 4 at around 2.30pm but was delay.  Was what-apping with friend to let me know when the flight is about to take off.  Was then told friend flight will land at pass 4pm.

Since I was early, I went to roam around the Airport till about 3 plus then proceed to Terminal 4.  The first thing I did when in Terminal 4 was to check the screen whether the flight has landed.  No Ipoh, oh no.  Went to check with Information Counter.  Was told Scoots from Ipoh land in Terminal 2.  

Chiam oh, how huh.  Went to check screen again, saw Kuala Lumpur, guess maybe friend flying from Kuala Lumpur, so I just sit there and wait.

Saw AK715 from Kuala Lumpur, 1602 will be at Belt 5. AK 713 from Kuala Lumpur, 1608 will be at Belt 4.  So I sat at Belt 5 there and wait.  Friend flight is in Belt 4.  Next time I must ask for flight number and not take for granted that friend flying in from Ipoh.  Friend took bus from Ipoh to Kuala Lumpur and fly in to Singapore.  Heard it's cheaper this way.

Then came the malu incident.  Was telling friend, we can cut cost by taking MRT instead of cab.  While in the MRT, was chatting with friend till didn't realise have reach Bugis Station where friend hotel is situated.  We drop at City Hall and have to travel back to Bugis.

After friend check in Hotel and drop her hand carry luggage, we went for dinner.

Stir fry french bean @ $7.80

Shrimp paste mid-wing chicken @ $8

Was telling friend, would love to join her and her daughter in going Orchard Road, but need to go back as my mum is at home and have to make sure she takes her medication.  So bought a packet of duck rice back for my mum dinner.

Day 6 in Hospital (28th Nov)

Since my mum is going to be discharge, I took my own sweet time to go to the hospital.

Thought of going to eat the laksa which my ex-colleague mention not bad at the eatery which I went on Monday.  But I told my mum we will go eat lunch after she's discharge before going home.  Second thought, I forgot to ask what time they are open.  So had chee cheong fun @ $2.50 at the food court going to the ward.  

When I reach the ward around 9.30pm, the first question my mum ask me, why are you so late, then told me she has taken her breakfast which is macaroni and medicine.  Then ask me can she change, told her got to wait for nurse instruction.  A while later, the nurse ask her to change as Emergency Dept.  have patient waiting for bed, then wait at the patient lounge.

While  at the patient lounge waiting to be discharge, the Physiotherapist came.  After the Physiotherapist is done, it's waiting time as was told, doctor doing their rounds.  After waiting for sometimes, still no news, went to ask, they said can discharge, the documents, will mail over. It's goodbye time to the ward.  Went to collect medicine before going to the Food Court to eat.

My mum had yong tau foo (didn't take picture) while I had chicken biryani @ $5.50.

For the biryani

Second round, coffee and pandan kaya cake before bringing her back to rest.

Day 5 in Hospital (27th Nov)

Reached the hospital around 8.30am as not sure what time is the scan.  At around 9am, my mum was wheel for the scan. I was told, my mum will be doing the Ultrasound scan.  I followed the Porter using the staff route.  While walking, we chit chat a bit, she said she chin chye, some Porter don't like patient family member to follow.  If Doctor ask, tell them I am accompanying my mum.  As the Hospital procedure, staff route is not for visitors use. Some  Sister, they will nag.

Saw banner at IMM foodcourt, promotion for the above bento set @ $5.90 on Sunday while I went there for a walk.  So I decided to go there for the bento set.  Borrow my mum Kopitiam Card, since the bento is on promotion, so no 10% discount.

While back at the ward, phone rang, it's the Medical Social Worker, telling me she came to talk to my mum.  Told her I am at the Ward, she then came to talk to me.

In the afternoon, while my mum was taking a nap, I thought I will go downstair walk walk. End up at an eatery where they sell cake, just when I was queuing wanting to buy cake as mouth itchy, eye also greedy, saw someone walking towards the eatery, aren't she my ex-colleague.  We didn't met for many years.  Her husband is in the Emergency Dept, so she came to makan. She mention her husband told her the laksa is nice, so she came here for it.  We did have a good catchup.  While at the eatery place, phone rang again, this round, it's the occupational therapist, he's coming to see my mum walking.

Till late afternoon, no news yet whether my mum will be able to discharge, my mum starts grumbling and again she blame me for causing her to be admitted to hospital.

My mum is someone who is very scare of taking medicine.  I ask her, how come at home, you will tell me why keep taking medicine and in the hospital, you co-operate with the nurse when she ask you to take medicine.  The answer I get is, if I don't listen to the nurse, the doctor won't discharge me.

In the evening, around 6 plus, the doctor told me my mum can be discharge.  She's busy attending to patients, so I got the news at this timing.  Since it's getting late, might as well discharge the next day before noon which I also find it's better to be discharge the next day.

I ask the nurse, the next day, what time can my mum be discharge and I can no need to come so early?  She told me discharge at 11am and I can come around 10am.

I left after my mum takes her medication at around 7.30pm.

Day 4 in Hospital (26th Nov)

Since it's Sunday, don't think that will be much issue, so I took my own sweet time.  Start my day going for the Zumba session at my place there.  Then do some household chore before leaving for the hospital.

 Before going to the hospital, I went for an early lunch.  Had signature mee kia @ $4.50.

Soup for the mee kia

Reach the ward around 10 plus.

While in the patient lounge watching television, overheard the staff talking to a patient about the hospital bill.  I went to ask about my mum hospital bill.  Ask the staff if Pioneer Generation can be used for hospital stay.  Was told Pioneer Generation can be used in Outpatient Specialist Clinic, but not for hospital stay. 

Then ask the nurse what time is my mum scan on Monday, was told they do not know the timing, the department will call, then my mum will be wheel there for the scan.

My mum naps in the afternoon, I went for a walk at IMM.

In the evening, after having dinner, my mum mood was not very good, talk to her, she ask me to go away.  The nurse usually gave the patient medicine at around 7pm to 7.30pm.  My mum was telling me, nurse is coming to bath for her, then eat breakfast, then the doctor will come, she can go back.

Left around 8pm.

Ming Kee Chicken Rice (3rd Dec)

I heard about Ming Kee Chicken Rice in Kim San Leng Coffeeshop at Bishan, but I have yet to try it out as it's not near my place.

My Kim Po stays at Bishan.  I have yet to visit her great granddaughter ever since her great  granddaughter was born.  Since I'm going to her place, before I go back home, I drop by for my dinner and also pack back for my mum.

1 plate and 1 packet , total is $7, so to say $3.50 per plate/packet. 

The rice which I find is good as not so oily

The sauce 

Saturday (2nd Dec)

 There's a wedding in Church previous Saturday (25th Nov), but my mum was in hospital, so she could not go.  Since she was discharge, she was able to go Church.  After service, as usual, we went Bukit Merah Central for early dinner.  The coffeeshop we went, the fishball noodle stall was not open, so, one less choice to choose from.

My mum wants wanton kway teow, price is $3, I add $1 wanton for her. Wanton kway teow $4, 6 wanton.

I had roasted duck rice @ $3.50

Saw the Malay stall selling kueh, ask my mum if she wants, she said ok, so bought a box at $1.50.

Backdated post - Christmas Decorations @ Hillion Mall

Surprised that the Christmas decorations @ Hillion Mall is up as thought that Christmas decorations will only be ready by end of November.

Backdated Post - Random Post

Since my mum and I went for the Saturday Church Hokkien Service.  And the following Sunday, which is the 3rd Sunday of the Month (19th Nov).  Zone 3 RC Monthly Senior Friendship Circle for Senior's 60 and above.

Ask my mum if she wants to go.  Since she's ok, I did not go for the morning Zumba.  If I go Zumba, will be rushing for me as Zumba ends at 8am and the Senior Friendship Circle breakfast starts at 8.30am.

Breakfast was served to the Senior's by the volunteers.  I shy to sit at the chairs, so I was at the corner which is nearby my mum.  Surprised that they gave me a packet of the nasi lemak.

It has been 3 weeks that I did not bring my mum to the PPHCSC breakfast.  I was not very keen to go for it, if not for my mum, I don't think i will want to go.

Usually they lock the door and will open the door only at 8.30am.  Before 8.30am, there were already many people waiting outside.  When the door was open, everyone will start dashing in and make way to the seats.  They have a machine serving milo, tea, coffee, etc.  Then there will be the queue for the drink. Before they announce, can start breakfast, there will be a group who will start to form a queue.  There are 100 plus people in the Friday breakfast session which makes the place cramp.  And every week, same foods, bee hoon, mee, kway teow.

I was telling my mum, I prefer the way the RC did, where the Senior's just sit there and the volunteers serve them. No need to queue 到要死要活.  Whereby in PPHCSC, people still coming in after 9am for the breakfast, no queue, but have to stand to eat.

Backdated post - Hospital Visitation (15th Nov)

A friend of mine was admitted to hospital due to back infection and had an operation on Monday (13th Nov).  As friend was staying in the East side, the nearest hospital was Changi General Hospital.

It has been donkeys month or year that I went there.  Can't recall when is the last time I was there.

When I reach Simei MRT station, thought I will go Fairprice at Eastpoint get something for her.  Taken for granted that the supermarket is in the basement, I went to the basement, walk one round.  Opps, no supermarket.  Can't be, as neighbourhood Shopping Centre, sure have supermarket.  Went back level 1, wanted to go find customer service to enquiry, then when I saw a lady carrying the carrier of the supermarket.  So went to ask her, only to realise supermarket is in level 5.

After getting what I want, thought I will walk there when I saw the shuttle bus at the bus stop, so I took the shuttle bus there.  If not I will walk there as Changi General Hospital is not far from Simei MRT.

When I reach the ward, then I realise friend was in High Dependency Ward.  My first time in High Dependency Ward.

After visiting friend, went Eastpoint jalan jalan.  I have not been there for donkeys months or years.

Since I was not very hungry, I end up at Qi Ji having a popiah @ $2.30.

And coffee @ $1.60

It so happen that there's an MRT incident at Joo Koon Station that morning and also MRT has been breaking down on and off.  So I thought I will take train to Bedok and take a bus home just in case MRT breakdown again.

The unlucky thing is, the bus I am taking, 1/4 into the journey, there's a passenger alighting and the door could not close after the passenger alighting.  The captain then was communicate with the controller through the bus radio contact.  A lady then tap her card and alight and it so happen another of the same service number was approaching.  She then told those in the bus and everyone follow suit, tap the card and board the bus behind.

From the previous breakdown I encounter before, the bus captain will switch the reader to breakdown mode and we will tap and we are not charge the fare and the bus captain will give a complimentary ticket and guide us to the next bus and we need not tap our card.

Backdated post - Christmas Decorations @ IMM

There used to be shuttle bus from Jurong East (Westgate or Jcube) to IMM.  But now no more already.  To get to IMM, I need to walk from Westgate to the bridge link to Ng Teng Fong Hospital, from Ng Teng Fong Hospital, there's a bridge link to Devan Nair Institute for Employment and Employability Building, then to IMM.

Anyway, nowadays I hardly go there.  But 心血来潮, thought I will go Giant buy grocery and at the same time,  see any changes there.
