What's so special about 15th June? Nope, it's not my birthday, but somehow, it's special to me - cos 15th June 2006 is a milestone, which marks my 9th year in service. 8 years ago, on this day, 15th June 1998 (Hari ini Dalam Sejarah), I reported duty together with my 2 other coursemates in university (One of them is now a Physician in Sarawak General Hospital and the other one works as General Practitioner, having her own clinic in the Land of Hornbills) to Sarawak General Hospital & started my career as a doctor with a prefix Dr in front of my name. It's a life changing experience. Medicine is a life long learning process. The learning process doesn't stop when a medical student graduates from medical faculty but it's just the beginning of another learning process.
So fast time flies... Today is my 9th year in service already... I'm getting more and more white or grey hairs day by day. What to do? Have to use lotsa brain cells at work and need to make very precise decision. How many lives have I saved over the past 8 years? Hundreds? Thousands? or.. ? I have no idea.. but I know it's definitely not a small figure. I might not be the best but I will try my very best. And I always believe in the saying Primum non nocere which means "First, Do No Harm". Hahaha, as a conclusion, Happy Working Anniversary.. (Just a word to console myself)
By the way, although I have worked as a doctor for 8 years, I'm still young ;) Hahha, cos I graduate early and start working at young age :P
