I was missing for a week coz I was shooting in Johor.
I was missing for another week doing editing at the editing room (which is quite isolated from civilization) and rushing to complete an episode (which was aired last week).
I was missing for another half week doing editing and finalizing ANOTHER episode (to be aired this week).
After Ina left, most of the burden was on me. To make things worse, MedikTV's production assistant, Shaiful, is being transferred to another department. His replacement has yet to be confirmed. We still haven't got Ina's replacement either :(
People are being taken away but no one is joining us. Hmph!

Shooting of this case went very smoothly because the doctor and patient involved were very cooperative. Even the patient's family were very welcoming. The patient's husband even treated us for dinner, twice!
The other case I did was on 'thyroid'. Now there was a bit of communication barrier because the patient doesn't speak good Malay and zero English. But the doctor was a GREAT speaker so he saved the day..phew!
I bet many are aware that January has a lot of public holidays. I was hoping that by working hard now, I don't need to go outstation too soon and get to enjoy the holidays. On Thursday I was told that Ina (the only other MedikTV journalist) is resigning and this Monday will be her last day at work. Waaargh :((
I'm gonna miss working with her, that's for sure. But she's leaving for a better future and something that she really wants, I'm happy for her. Now as for us who are still working, we're gonna have difficulty finding a replacement because not everyone is willing to observe surgeries. There is no way I can do this whole thing alone. Even now I'm working my butt off. It's crazy!
