Day 1 at Yas Island: UNPACKED AND PACKED

06 November 2010-  I just unpacked the other day after coming back from my family’s holidays to the Philippines, and here I am packed again today for another trip. This is for my scheduled work as a paramedic for the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The event is being hosted for the second time by Abu Dhabi at Yas Island on 14 November.

This is also my second year to be part of this international event. My last year’s experience was quite good so I did not hesitate when I was offered to join again. Who wouldn’t want a job where you can mix work and pleasure? You work as a nurse, and you get to stay in a 4-star hotel for free, with buffet meals. And you also get to watch the Formula One races, when others just dream of being there because of the expensive ticket prices.

Aside from these benefits, I also feel that it is such an honor to be part of this international event, participated by chosen doctors and nurses from different hospitals in Abu Dhabi.

It seems that this will be an extension of my vacation, as I have not started working yet in my hospital unit, since I came back from my holidays. I am just glad to be away from my usual busy hospital work.

    It’s pretty cool to be chosen for these kinds of field work. You must be one of the outstanding nurses in your unit. Being skilled and competent really does have its perks.

      Oh my, no! I ain’t oustanding or something like that. I’m just an average nurse. They needed male nurses so I got chosen 🙂
