I went to run an errand at City Hall today, so I decided to have brunch at Raffles City, the shopping mall attached to City Hall MRT. I got caught up in writing a blog post for my food blog about the cafe that I was at that I completely forgot that I still had an errand to run! 😩 Once I remembered, I quickly went to pay so I could go run my errand.
So I get to my destination, only to discover that they have MOVED 😫 To JURONG, which is way out west!! So now I have to make a concerted effort to go all the way out there 😔 I think I’ll go on Friday and make an afternoon of it 😊
I then made my way to the gynaecologist who the GP from yesterday referred me to. That’s one awesome thing about SG: getting a specialist appointment is wayyy easier than in Oz. I rang this morning asking to book an appointment, and the receptionist asked for when. I’m used to THEM telling me when I can come in – and it’s usually at least six weeks from when I ring! So of course I said as soon as possible, so I can deal with this stupid medical thing as quickly as I can. And she offered a slot for this afternoon! 😲 I don’t know why it’s so much easier to see a specialist here compared to Oz. I had a similar experience with the eye specialist too. Maybe it’s just a case of supply and demand?? 🤷♀️ In any case, I’m very grateful for it! 🙏
So I get to the medical clinic, and after a short wait, I see the gynaecologist. The first thing she says to me is “we’ve met before”. And I’m like OMG where. We are in SG, and my social circle here is much smaller than in Oz, so surely I can place her much more easily. So I study her face a bit, and after a few seconds, I figure out who she is: she has her dance lesson after us!! She looks different in her corporate attire, so I didn’t recognise her straight away. But O-M-G. CAN THE WORLD BE ANY SMALLER?!?? 🤪🤪
In a way, it was good that she’s a dancing gynae, as she understood my lifestyle as a fellow dancer and could take this into consideration in her recommendations. She actually wants me to do more tests, and asks if I’m available this weekend – “or are you competing at the Singapore Open?” Omgggg who would know this except a dancing doctor?!?! 🤪🤪 I am still floored that we know each other!! This small world that we live in is distracting me from my medical issues, at least! 😂😂
I then decided to stop by Orchard Road to use my Charles & Keith vouchers that are going to expire very soon. I still have S$200 worth of vouchers 😲 And being a non shopper, in a way, I feel like I’m being forced to buy something, so as to not waste the vouchers, if that makes sense.
So I bought two handbags, one of which is to replace one of my existing ones that is on death’s door. This is how bad something has to get for me to go shopping! Clothes and accessories need to be falling apart before I will replace them 😂 So now I’m down to S$50. It’s going to expire before we move to HK, so I have to find one more item within the coming month 😆
And then we practised tonight, seven of the eight dances we’re doing at the comp on Saturday. Now my thighs are sore hehe But that’s good, means I worked hard tonight 💪 😊 Dancing gynae will be there too 😱 After all the medical talk, we then proceeded to discuss the comp and dancing in general. So weeeeird!! 🤪
