Avoid Neha Nursing Home

My dad stayed in New England Home Agency (NEHA) near Adventist Hospital for 9 days and before 2 weeks are up, we decided to bring him out immediately to another home that I shall not reveal, but is better run by a Chinese couple with 3 branches. Neha’s nursing aide claimed to be a qualified nurse when we interviewed her. Suvi is the name and in her Whatsapp group message, it says, “Stay away, I’m Dangerous (plus a sign of a syringe)”. She got dad’s medication all mixed up and no wonder, Dr Goh, who has Parkinson’s disease, died after 4 months of stay there. The Indian helpers are also very dirty, using their wet hands to handle food after clearing their nose. It is run by an Indian Doctor who is well known for giving out MCs (medical certificates) at patient’s whims and fancies.

Also the RM 5,200 for 1 month’s deposit and less than 2 weeks of stay month’s of stay, the doctor promised to give back 1 month’s deposit of RM 2,600. Now he is going to deduct another 10 days of stay from the date of notice (eg 12th March) where dad shifted out to 1 month in April, say 12th April. So instead of getting back RM 2,600, we will receive only RM 1,760.00 for 9 days of stay!

There is also a female patient with Alzheimer’s disease, who yells out at random, making the place more ‘lifely’.

Dad May Be Discharged Soon

Being a government servant or civil employee in a school as a teacher, dad is entitled to free treatment in the General Hospital after a fall in the toilet. Days later, he had a clot in the brain and was promptly sent to the GH for treatment. Well, they did nothing to dad other than give him food and check him. No angiogram which was scheduled for the day and it was cancelled last minute due to lack of manpower. Imagine only 2 male nurses on duty for the whole ward of 40 male patients. That is why they bypass my dad and served their own kind, the Malay chap.

After 5 days of no angiogram and dad was almost lifeless, refusing to eat and soaked in his urine without bath for 3 days, youngest sister suggested St John’s ambulance which we paid $150 to transfer him to a private hospital and he was immediately attended to after I paid the deposit of $6k. He went into the Accident and Emergency ward and they cleaned his wound, put on drips, etc. Such is the excellent service when you go to the private hospital with money. Frankly, dad might not have survived up to today if he had continued staying in GH, and luckily my sister made the decision to send him to a private hospital, where the bills are split by 3 of us!

One Tip – Never Gamble

If there is one advice to give, it is to never gamble! Gambling will bring about poverty in due time when one is addicted to it! There is no end to gambling once a person is addicted. Take my late uncle for instance. He plays 4D and other what-nots by gambling and in the end he had to sell his house to settle his mounting debts. Finally he had to rent a small apartment to stay from a single-storey detached house with garden and rambutan tree with pomelo tree. Another instance was right in my house! My departed granny was a habitual gambler and apparently took jewelry from the house including my gold watch to pawn and get some cash just to gamble! You know the final results! She lost everything! Whatever is of value will go missing in the house. Hence, learn from other people’s lessons of losing hard-earned money by gambling to lose it all instantly.

Patience is a Virtue

We need to have patience in every endeavour that we pursue. Be it education, working life, or even social life, we all need to have patience. I find that Millenials in the age of technology, are very impatient and will not go the extra mile to help their customers or in their jobs. They want fast money with instant loans from “special” friends with faux promises of returning, etc. As you just get to know them, you never know their true motives. It is so different from tried and tested frienships, which went through trials and tribulations. Asking for loans or money just after knowing me, scares me off from the friendship that is merely focused on cash alone. Friendship is about communication and not merely with ulterior motive of gaining financially from the other person.

Sold stamps yesterday

I sold more than 150 stamps still stuck to envelopes yesterday for RM 25 which is considered very cheap as I get them free of charge, having tear out from letters of tax invoices, etc from various companies. It was banked to my Public bank account and on the same day, I couriered it out to Sabah via City-Link. People are not rich, but with the little that they have, they are willing to spend on their kids or for their hobbies to keep going and having interests of hobbies. I gave her extra stamps since I have collected more from the time it was listed on mudah website for her sincerity. There are many con artists lurking around mudah looking for easy cash by cheating people like you and me.

Car Broken Into

Our second hand Merc was broken into at Rhythm Avenue basement carpark. We were informed that this is an inside job and it had happened many times, as told by the new staff who just worked there for 2 months already. They know that the CCTV is not working and is not functioning. On that day, the cleaning staff for the first time, cleaned the floor outside our apartment. I suspect it could be the foreign workers who worked in Rhythm Avenue are involved in this burglary. Even the previous management were sued for about $800k for default on the electric bill all these years for the 4 blocks and malls. When we moved in our fridge, immediately the security guard intercom us about the bulky item inside the lift. They were watching us closely. But when it comes to security in the car park, the security guard was sleeping or in cahoots with the burglars.

Going Down South

Tomorrow, I shall depart for KL as early as 8:00am in order to make it for the meeting at 2:30 – 3:00pm with a potential client. Recently, in the papers, it was advertised that Great Eastern has a coverage up to a million for medical treatment and I was quite interested. However, from previous bad experiences with insurance agents, I was advised against it and it is better to save the money myself and pay for it later on should the need arise. I still keep my Prudential policy which I used to pay $150 per month which was subsequently increased to $155.41 per month just before I claimed for my treatment at Adventist Hospital with a maximum claim of only $3,000.00 after paying $150 per month since 2004. I have put in so much money each year, around $1,800 per year for the last 10 years and all I could claim was a mere $3,000 for my medical treatment at Adventist Hospital. This is really bad and it is the only policy that I still keep till today. I cannot cancel anymore unlike previous policies as it is my only existing one. For new policies, I may have to cough up more premiums due to my age.
