5-star health service

I was feeling under the weather (what's new huh??) last few days and I had to pay a visit to the gynae. Was having this sharp pressure abdominal pain. Not having any prior appointment with the gynaes I've seen, I had to resort to anyone available that day. That was when I decided to try seeing a gynae in the new hospital - Prince Court Medical Centre (PCMC). Stepping into the hospital was like stepping into a resort. An absolute 5-star, the hospital boasts a minimalist Zen concept. Spacious, with lotsa green, wood panelling, big waiting room with plush leather chairs, big flat screen TV etc. Treatment-wise, nurses were polite and offered personalised service. Instead of calling you from the counter, they walked towards you to escort you to the doctor. The gynae I saw was very thorough. He undertook tests that the gynaes I saw before did not perform. I felt I was given the best advice that day! And the highlight of the day was the total bill was below RM150!! I was expecting it to be way more expensive! It would certainly cost more than RM200 if I were to consult the gynaes I've seen before! Well, I surely know where to go for specialist consultation from now on! Finally, answers to my prayers for a true world-class Malaysian service!

C'est La Vie

I decided to be happy from now onwards! Having gone through a series of health scares, been diagnosed having fibroid growth, retroverted uterus, thyroid plus the most heart-wrenching news that I've to delay bearing a child, I decided that things happen for reasons, whether we realise it or not.

I'm currently on numerous supplements, medications and undergoing treatment with medical doctors and alternative medicine pratitioners. I will keep on trying and will not give up and most importantly I know I will not go through this alone. Hubby and family will always be there for me. They're my strength and will always tell me that when life throws you lemons, make lotsa lemonade! And yes, life will go on for me and I'll be sipping lemonade :) C'est la vie!
