Cool Breeze of June

            My Saturday began with the usual morning rounds with patients. It is my duty to check on their well being from time to time and explain to them their latest lab results. Dealing with patients and their caregivers is not an easy task since patients come in different forms-worried, elated, flat affect and sometimes hyper. I have to keep my composure and tell them straight face their current condition. Although I am always open for questions to satisfy their curiosities and to correct their misconceptions. The latter is very important.

maglinis ay di biro

anong kaguluhan ito?

            After filling up the doctor’s orders and updating the progress notes, I went to the emergency room to endorse my patients to the resident on duty and then proceeded to the office for our general cleaning. It has been said that it was years since the place last tasted mops and brushes which explains the cobwebs enough to make a comforter. Our stethoscopes and charts were replaced with brooms as we inspected and scrubbed every nook and cranny until it was spotless. Finally, after the hard-work and dry hands from frequent washing, our space can now finally be called, the office.

            Life is full of surprises. After our cleaning session, my good old friends and I went for a roadtrip, destination Mont D Johan. With a few sun to spare, Jay-I hurriedly drove to the destination just after Marilog District. Thanks to Julie’s food donation, our adrenalin was coupled with glucose enough for Jay-I to control his speed while I was on the back seat listening to my Ipod until it gave away. I don’t drive, I am just the friendly katulong/PR/road manager. We arrived past five and felt the cool breeze of the area. It was like autumn. The air was fresh and clean I keep on inhaling several times until my brain kicked the senses out of me. Woods. Fresh Air. Cabins. Rocky Trails. Clean Rivers. Beautiful Landscape. Insect biting (kidding). It was the perfect location for rest and recreation from the hustle and bustle of city life. I moved from place to place making Applelyn my P.A. and official photographer. I marvel at nature’s beauty and was taking videos and photos in my phone. We checked out the river and its miniature naturally made falls until night time fell. Following the path towards the river downwards was a breeze but coming up again nearly needed a nebulizer. When darkness fell on the woods, the fireflies were all in their crowning glory. I am happy that these insects were still alive since my last encounter with them was when I still had colds dripping out of my nose and try ballooning them. We bid our farewell to the caretakers and the trees and the spirits of the woods and drove in the night until we reached our eating destination, Golden eggs. As to why their name, I need not bothered to ask. Maybe they have King Midas locked in the dungeon. We ordered hito and ate our heart out. We then went home afterwards. And now I am writing this. And then I will be staring at the ceiling thinking of what transpired. Memories to last for a life time, people to cherish forever. There are certain things in life that cannot be bought and I am happy that I have some of them. Drama. Lights. Camera. End.
