Day 11 at Yas Island: Bye, Yas!

16 November 2010 – Gee, Day 11 at Yas Island!

I woke up late in the morning. I have no more shuttle bus to catch up so I took my time fixing myself up before going down to the lobby for breakfast. I did not eat a lot though. I guess, I was fed up with good food. I felt I did not want to look at Turkey bacons again. But hey, I was not complaining. God will give me a kick if I do.

I had a dip at the pool after breakfast. It was nice to relax after 10 days of work at the field hospital. Oh and did I say “work”? It did not actually feel that I  was at work here in Yas Island. If all my “work” will be like this, you would never hear me complain about my job. This surely is an opportunity of my lifetime as a nurse.

I checked out of the hotel by midday. Gosh, I would surely miss the place. I guess, not just the place itself, but the good food, the job at field hospital, and the new friendships.


On our way home, with my nurse colleagues from our hospital, our service bus stopped in the middle of the road. There was engine trouble.

Good thing  there were two buses and we were ahead from the second bus. We waited for a couple of minutes on the road until the second bus stopped for us. We tried to fit in our luggages and ourselves in one bus.

There was no complaining. Our patience was just being tested, as we were about to go back to the real world of nursing.

    sounds like you had a lot of fun! When we still had the Formula One Grand Prix races in Vancouver…I got to go (I think it was 2005) and sat in one of the VIP boxes…with free food and all included….and we got to meet all the drivers….got their autographs too – in the special autograph book provided. Some were really nice and there was one guy in particular that was quite rude…you could tell he didn’t want to be there. It was a great day. I had 2 tickets and no one else wanted to go so I took my cousin’s stepson who was only 15 at the time.

    Looks like a great place to relax! I spent last weekend with my Grandma and again am reminded how much your occupation is needed and appreciated.

    Hi CARTOON CHARACTER, wow I envy you for getting autographs! I couldn’t coz I was at work during the races. I only got to see ONE driver and that’s it. Anyhow, I enjoyed my work there so much!

    Hi KATE, Yas Island is indeed a great place to relax! They have nice hotels, amusement parks, golf clubs and concert venues. I’d love to come back, not to work, but to enjoy the time. Thanks for considering my occupation an important one. Nothing beats appreciation as a means to thank us.

    Yup, we all have to be ready to adapt in any situation we are placed in, be it an overcrowded bus or a disastrous area. Pero if I were to adapt to that, I would not complain either! Sarap ng ganyang trabaho! 🙂
