A Surprise In KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital

My sister has been "cleaning" my mom's wound ever since she has been discharged two months back and she has been doing a good job about it. The "toe hole" is getting smaller even though it is not fully healed yet, a very slow healing process due to diabetes..

At around 10am on Saturday, I received an SOS call from my sister... my mom needed to go to hospital for my sister saw some redness around my mom's wounded feet. This time we are more alert and aware, anything red, we must not procrastinate anymore... Quickly I phoned up my cell leader, I was supposed to go for church practice at 11am for Sunday's service. Which is more urgent.. needless to say, I rushed over to my mom's place and off we went to KPJ known as Ipoh Specialist Centre.. 
While waiting for the doctor.. I played with my iPad..
Took a picture of my mom's beautiful leg..
And ..
Then I heard MUSIC!
For a moment, I thought I was in a pub....
From where I was... on the first floor...
then I looked down...
There they were... the musicians...
The female singer was rendering her first song... "I don't want to talk about it"
Her voice reminded me of Tracy Huang... sweet...soothing voice..
This is the biggest hospital in Ipoh, if I am not mistaken...
They even have caddies to shuttle visitors from the car parks to the lobby...
I wouldn't mind sitting here longer to listen to the songs actually... LOL...
Does this look like a hospital if I hadn't say so? :)
It was quite a surprise for me, first time I heard of a live band in a hospital...
I wonder what is the main purpose...
But I sure support it... 
at least the WAIT is not so monotonous....

In conclusion: Doctor said my mom's wound is doing just fine, healing properly, thanks to my sister's cleaning up daily and he told us not to worry about the redness, it is normal to be red around the leg due to the soreness... Thank God it is nothing serious and we went home after spending RM50 for consultation in this posh hospital...

  3. Praise the Lord. Everything is fine. First time hear hospital got live band. No function going on? If nice sentimental song still acceptable but not the noisy ones that makes the head spinning.

  4. Nice touch! Music heals the soul, and hopefully will help in the healing of the body too - it's therapeutic.

    Is your mum on antibiotics? I understand that in serious cases, they will inject around the wound till the swelling/redness subsides. Hope it gets well soonest.

  18. Live performance in a hospital? That was rather weird... :p

  19. I am SO glad your mom is alright!!! Do you know how long it will take to heal completely? This is the happiest hospital I have ever seen!!! I LOVE it. So much sorrow in a hospital, and the music will help, very upbeat and good for the soul! Our hospitals here have a big piano in the lobby, a volunteer plays. Very boring compared to yours!!

  23. KPJ in Ipoh looks nice!

    A wound like that is no joke, untreated, it can cause blood poisoning and other problems, even a small cut I had got infected and it was red all the way up my arm.

    Good to hear your mom is healing well!

  24. KPJ Ipoh looks so much better than KPJ Taiping >.<

    It's indeed something 'special', live band in a hospital!

    Take good care of your mum, this type of wound must be treated properly.

  25. HB: yes, we ought to be careful of cuts especially when one is having high sugar level in the blood...


    hayley: Oh i didnt know that Taiping has a KPJ too..

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
