SHEIKH KHALIFA MEDICAL CITY or SKMC is the lone government hospital in the entire of Abu Dhabi. It is named after the former president of the country UAE (United Arab Emirates) - Sheikh Khalifa.
SKMC is a MAGNET accreditted hospital, such accredittation implies conformance to the international standards set by the accreditting institution. There are only few hospitals who were able to pass the MAGNET accreditation, one of which is SKMC - the only one in the entire of middle east.
To date, I have been assigned in the Cardiac ICU. There have been plenty of things that I need to know and I need to adjust on to but I am taking one thing at a time. Very honestly I have been learning a lot of things and procedures which I have not encountered in my almost 5 years of experience in the Philippines. In the picture is my uniform in SKMC.

A part of my contract in my work here in Abu Dhabi, we were promised to have an accomodation of our own. True enough we were housed in a three storey villa with complete amenities and furnitures. Each room has 42 inches flat plasma TV with a very soft bed. A very good centralized air conditioning system is more than capable enough to take care the scorching heat of the sun.
The villa is so spacious that the 9 of us housed in this villa seldom see each other. Security guards are on look 24/7 so you are very much certain that everything will be fine within the compound.
A coaster will fetch us at specific time schedules every time we go to the hospital for our duties. Telephones are free and so is the TFC. Whats making me miss the Philippines? There are plenty of things I miss in my country but the very thing I missed so much?..... Hearing the sound of raindrops falling in my head.... huhuhuhhuhu...

These are just few of the way too alien words my brother in law kept on mumbling. He actually has this new Mercedes and a friend told him techniques on how to boost up the performance of his car and when he found out how effective it was he suddenly became so fanatic about these supercharger thing.
He was so fanatic on that thing that he even insisted that my other brother living here in the Philippines get a Nissan Supercharger for his newly bought Nissan car. What has gotten into him? He is really starting to get serious over these. But I talked to my sister, my brother in law's wife she said the reason why he is acting like that was because he was so delighted of the effects these supercharger thing did to his car. Very speedy experience huh, way to go bro!

On these pics are my new buddies in Abu Dhabi, as everybody know so well, I have been quite lucky enough to work in one of the finest Cities in the Middle East - Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the country United Arab Emirates. The country have 7 emirates and one of which is the emirate where I worked ; Abu Dhabi. The very famous Dubai is just one of the 7 emirates of UAE, Rumors has it that Dubai is abetter place than in Abu Dhabi. But others said that it is not so much nice to live their as it is a relatively more expensive city compared to that of the Abu Dhabi.
Nonetheless, mine is concern not of wherever is the most expensive emirate, what I know is that both emirates are both very hot cities, and when I say it's hot? it is indeed way too hot!!!

My coming here to Abu Dhabi was quite a blessing, my mom who's been mocking me to wake me up every morning has been miles away, jejeje.. my bro in the US who keeps calling me up and kept bragging on what's new and what's hot have been quite so tame lately... or so I thought.
Kriiiiing... my mobile screamed, and wallah! Its my brother again. Amazingly he has been not so nosy on what I have been doing here, rather he kept on talking about Direct TV Promos and things about satellite TV. When I searched the net what I found was that these satellite television is a television delivered by means of communication satellite and is reveived by a satellite dish and a set-top box. I also learned that in many areas of the world these satellite televisions are able to provide a wide range of channels and services, often to areas that are not serviced by terrestrial or cable providers.
Really now, how advance can some other places get. My brother was even thankful that he was able to see this Satellite TV deals flashed in the screen of his televison, in fact he is way too excited to grab one of his own now. Yeah, that's my bro he never changes. but considering the advantages my bro cited when he talked about this satellite tv, hmmmm I think, it's worth a try.
