Hainan Medical Mission

I have never been on a medical mission ~ Hence in Nov 2015, when the opportunity presented itself, i went on my virgin medical mission ~
For the past 7 years, this Hainan Smiles operation has been on-going in  Cheng Mai County, in Hainan Province, China, to operate on patients with cleft/craniofacial problems aiming to enrich the lives of them who may otherwise faced social difficulties due to their physical handicap and have been outcast from the society.

   I didn’t know what to expect when i arrived ~
While i’ve travelled over some "still developing" countries, this would be
an entirely different experience. I was excited and nervous for what might come and what the demands would be, both physically and maybe slight mentally ~
I was not really train in plastics (clef lip) before hence its was a challenged but luckily,
i have some background and roughly know the instruments since i do head & neck in GS too ~

Richmond Bridge

The Richmond Bridge is a historic bridge in Richmond, 25 km north of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia. It is the oldest bridge still in use in Australia. It was built over Tasmania's Coal River from 1823 to 1825 and was used for the moment of military police and convicts between Hobart & Port Arthur. It is said to have been the site where a desperate convict committed suicide and where, in another story, a cruel overseer was set upon by the convict workers and thrown off the bridge.

But sadly we miss that particularly Saturday when it comes alive ~

Dating back to the mid-19th century, the splendid St. David's Cathedral is the centre of Anglican religion in Hobart. With outstandin…

Cadbury & Mt Wellington

So who dont like chocolates!
But again to my much disappointment ~
there was no tour around the Cadbury Chocolate Factory except for some slides presentation which was totally not even worth the 4bucks we paid for!

Decided not to be disappointment again! We head up to the Mount Wellington ~
It is officially known as Kunanyi / Mount Wellington as a mountain in the southeast coastal region of Tasmania, Australia.The mountain is the summit of the Wellington Range on whose foothills is built much of the city of Hobart. The mountain rises to 1,269m (4,163 ft) above sea level ~
An enclosed lookout near the summit provides spectacular views of the city below and to the east, the Derwent estuary, and also glimpses of the World Heritage Area nearly 100 km west.
Finally had our dinner at a decent place beside the dock ~ Seafood it shall be =) Recommended to all!
