Thrilled by Dra. Fe Del Mundo :)

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

I am soooooo grateful I had the chance to have a photo with one of our National Scientists in the Philippines, Dra. Fe Del Mundo. Who is she?

  • Filipino Pediatrician
  • First woman admitted as a student of the Harvard Medical School
  • founded the first pediatric hospital in the Philippines
  • Known for having devised an incubator made out of bamboo
  • National Scientist of the Philippines, the first Filipino woman to be so-named.

There are a lot of great stories about her works and service to the Filipino people, some unknown and some are yet to be known. I have talked to several staff nurses in her hospital and I knew that she is really an outstanding person and deserves everything she had accomplished.

Now, Dra. Fe Del Mundo is 98 years old, I had that picture taken because she conducted rounds in the hospital. She’s very beautiful and has good aura that day. I was very thankful and definitely thrilled. She joked “Dapat kung gaano kadami ang nagpapapicture ngayon sa akin, ganoon din ang pasyente natin…” we all laughed. The OB ward was benign that day but she really brightened our day.

The ward is still benign but I learned a lot, I made friends with the staff nurses and they are really very generous in teaching and sharing their experiences.

Next time, Dra. Fe will do rounds, I’ll have my photo taken with her, this time— Solo 🙂 with autograph! hihi.

Capture the moments with Buddy Gancenia Video Production and Services

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

People are fond of taking photos, videos, and things from the places, events, and gatherings as memorabilia and souvenirs to their awesome experiences. We want to capture every part and highlights of these experiences to relive and reminisce with the same fondness and delight.

Important memories from birth to death, from friendship to building a family together, from entering pre-school to college graduation, birthdays, out of town trips, corporate events and a lot more… Photos, Videos, Souvenirs are always present.

We keep them for reference and documentation, as memorabilia, to advertise, to entertain… and for any other purposes we wish to do. I must admit I am guilty of posting it on Facebook, Multiply and my blog to share with everyone.

Most of the time we do videos and take pictures by ourselves but with some circumstances we hire professionals to do the job.

In turn, also have worked in several TV stations and its shows. He offers video coverage services that are unique and creatively done to cater your needs.

Littlenars’ is now a Nurse Trainee :]

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

Ohhh. I missed blogging. It’s been a long time since I updated my blog. I’ve been busy with some “Career” Stuff. Anyway, Just for an update…

Last January 4, 2009, I started my 3-month training at Dr. Fe Del Mundo Medical Center (formerly, Children’s Medical Center) and for 1 week, we had orientation, some lectures and return demonstration (yes, you got it right, I had yet again a return demonstration and it turned out good so thank God). You can refer to my tweets for that. Hihi.

That was also the first time I wore a white uniform paired white pants (that I just bought at SM Home World). I was excited but at the moment I looked at myself on the mirror, I just said “DAMN! I looked like….. Never mind” but my mum is a hero and had it repaired. So, Yay! I finally looked like a NURSE (somehow). Haha!

January 11, 2010, I started my “official” duty in the OB-Gyne Ward for 1 month. I was assigned on a 12-hr night duty. Together with Dennis and Ibay, my new “group mates” and Ma’am Vangie, the staff nurse on duty.

OB Ward was benign last night, we only had 2 patients but the other patient was transferred on the early hours of the shift, so technically, we just had 1 patient. Nevertheless, the patient was VS Q1 and monitoring for uterine contractions and bleeding that is why we had something to do for the last 12 hours besides chitchatting and letter cutting for the ward.

I have done my charting (nurses’ notes), bed making, perineal care, room preparation, transferring of patient, requesting for laboratory exam, relaying of laboratory results to the attending physician, endorsement. Hmmmm…. What else? I think that’s it.

My Day 1 was an OK start, we didn’t sleep for the whole shift that’s why when I got home, I showered then immediately fell on a deep slumber. I foresee that my body clock will be disrupted again but yeah, I kinda missed it…LOL.

I am not saying I want more OB patients to come but I hope this month I can learn a lot.

2010 is starting out GOOD for me :] How about yours?

I better get going, will have a duty tonight and I am energized, thanks to my 6-hr sleep awhile ago. 🙂 Wish me luck!

01/01/10— LittleNars’ 2009 Year-Ender Post

Friday, January 1st, 2010

Ok, so I was planning to do a WIN+FAIL list of the year 2009 and post it in this blog but yeah, procrastination and laziness corrupted my being and so I just ended up with the draft of it (just had it written in a yellow sheet of paper). Ok this counts in my FAIL list. I am thinking of just scanning my draft but I changed my mind. I just wanted for this year-ender post to be a WIN one. Yeah, this is my [LittleNars’] year-ender post.

Twenty-O-Nine was indeed my year, A Year of Life Changing Events.

[NSFW]  JK :]  Read through if you want to continue and want to know why…

2009 started filled with FUN at the same time TOXIC (really, that’s the “term”) moments— for the reason that I was a graduating student trying to spend every quality time with friends as much as possible while at the same time, meeting the deadlines and requirements for school.

Massive Case Studies… Dreaded Case Presentations… Thesis major revisions… Hypovolemia-causing Thesis defense (epistaxis=nose bleed!!!)… Tremors-causing revalidas/return demonstrations… Intracranial Pressure-rising Monthly Nursing Audit examination… (OK, I bet stop <<<– now.)

Lots of sleepovers due to above, Oh… did I mention sleep? It was rather, sleepLESS. On the bright side, lots of times to bond— gossip about school people, talk about anything we can’t talk about at school, or just doing school stuff while enjoying the company of each other… (Seriously, we really don’t have time to chitchat at school)

After all those tough, hardcore moments, (here’s the best part) I can’t believe we still had time to P-A-R-T-Y!

The greatness of LORD to me this year have brought these blessings:

  • College Graduation at the early part of the year…
  • Passed the Nursing Licensure Exam and Oath Taking at the mid part of the year…
  • —-INSERT BUMMER MODE HERE—– at the mid to the “almost” end part of the year… (Mostly, spent Facebook-ing)
  • Enrolled myself on a “Teacher Certification Program” (Yes, you got it right. I haven’t blogged about that yet but hopefully soon) and Got in for a Nurse Training Program in one hospital at the end part of the year…

In between those “Life-Changing” events, I also have fulfilled simple/little things like attended some nursing seminars/trainings, registered for 2010 election, opened a savings account, gone hospital hopping/submitted resume, and earned something in my own little ways…

With all those achievements (not to brag), I also felt confused… I almost lose hope… I felt indecisive… I felt rejected… I felt my self-esteem has been drained out from me… I was depressed— the feeling of being useless ‘cause you’re unemployed and *insert all self-demeaning things here* …

But as each day passes, I realized that this was just a phase in my life that I have to surpass. As I rise, my family, friends and most especially, God, here I am now, facing my year 2010 with my chin up and a big smile. I realized that I shouldn’t rush things because there is a right time for everything in this world. Just believe. I believed.

2009 made me gain friends and miss some… made me “mature” (well, at least for me)… made me independent… made me more responsible…

I hope year 2010 will be an awesome and splendid year for everyone.

Thank you for being a part of my H-U-G-E 2009. I wouldn’t have finished living this year without you. :]


And Oh… If you want to check out my 2008 year-ender post click here, here, here and here. (yes, It’s 4 parts. LOL)

2009—-Now Signing Off!

I actually am convinced not to make a year-ended post but this year definitely deserved one and I was inspired by my good friend’s year-ender post and so, there!:]

P.S Part II
Please don’t ask me of my 2010 wish. It’s still under construction. [Having troubles of envisioning my 2010. I really don’t know what’s going to happen] Let’s just all wish for God’s will to ensue! :]

With all hopes high,
Dianne Kristin G. Peña, R.N
