Oh and I got a new job! Working at Fendi at MBS now. :D My first time doing sales/retail and I start with luxury brand. Hahas. Work is great, but now my weeks are fully packed. It's tiring but I actually feel this sense of satisfaction from being busy at all. Although now I might end up neglecting my friends more, in the sense that now I have even lesser time to meet up.
Anyway I'm writing this post while lying on my bed with my eyes half closed, I might even end up writing gibberish. Let's just get started on the topic for today!
On 6th July, there was a talk , "Living with Allergies", held at Bugis+. This talk was a collaboration between Raffles Hospital and Channel News Asia.

Dr Raymond Kwah (SKIN ALLERGIES: ATOPIC DERMATITIS)
Specialist in Dermatology & Consultant
Dr Wendy Sinnathamby (MANAGIVING PAEDIATRICS ALLERGIES)

I don't think any of you would be interested to hear the contents and all right? But if you do, just drop a comment and I'll post up the summaries for the 6 topics.
But to sum up the talk, it was really very interesting and enlightening. However, there were quite a bit of technical terms used, and while I could keep up due to what I'm studying now, most of the audience was more towards seniors and middle-aged adults. I mean, I don't think words like Immunoglobulin E and cell-mediated reactions are something that we come across in our everyday life.
Other than that, I think the talk was pretty awesome, with some doctors being more interesting than the other. Anyway, I also made an appointment with Dr Raymond Kuah for my eczema. Hopefully he'll be able to help me keep it under control.
I posted the doctors name so that if any of you have any such allergies and would like to see a specialist, just give Raffles Hospital a call and make an appointment with that doctor.
Went out to the small garden after the talk and had a mini camwhore session with my mum~ As usual. Hoho.
P.S. I would like to apologise for disappearing for so long but there's been a lot going on. I'm really sorry guys!
