Friends Wedding

Last month I've attended two weddings for two dear friends to me and my husband.

December 18, 2010 when Louie and Karen got married. Louie is hubby's friend since there college days. He is also our daughter's ninong.

My cute daughter Zoe is one of there flower girls.

Also last December 21, my very dear friend Julie Ann was married to her long time boyfriend Joman.

Nursing or Not?

As early as now we are already asking our niece that will be an incoming high school student to decide into what course she wants to pursue in her college. We keep on telling her to decide earlier so she can prepare for it.

Her mother was a nursing graduate and is now working in a hospital somewhere in KSA . I have the feeling that she also want to be like her mother, she even ask me if nursing is a good course but somehow we are discouraging her due to many nursing graduates and even a license nurses that can’t find a good job. But of course at the end whatever she wants will prevail. If she pursues nursing it will be an advantage for here because she will inherit her mom’s things but not the nursing uniforms, because it is already old and the color had already faded. She must have to buy her own medical scrubs and uniforms in medical uniform stores. But having a nursing student is much expensive for parents, not only the uniforms and tuition fees they have to consider but also the expenses for their things, the expensive books and so many others. We keeps on reminding here that she must think of the best course that she wants to pursue and she must consider the job availability that suits her course after her studies. But one thing is for sure; whatever she decides on we are just here to support here, not only here but our entire nieces and nephews.

A nice medical scrub.
