Make no mistake! I am worth MORE dead than alive!
Some people don't fully understand it when I say that I am worth more dead than alive.
You see that statement is true. The reason why people don't realise that is because they don't know how much I am insured for. If they knew, well......
Of course in that statement I am referring to monetary worth. But during the SARS period, I decided to protect my family. I realized that my profession was actually high risk. Seeing colleagues dying on the job was not something we would have foreseen when we entered medical school. But today it is a reality. The bird flu epidemic looms over the horizon........
I took up several policies to protect my family. That way I can continue to work without fear. As a doctor I need to do my job which is to serve the patients to the best of my ability. But there can be risks.
I realize one thing I cannot stand in Singapore is all this talk about money money money. That seems to be all everyone talks about. Money. If you look at the NKF issue, it's about money. When you look at the Casino issue, again it's about money.
Thus when I start thinking of money, somehow it gets me down. Better to not think about it so much. But living in a society which is obsessed with money, it isn't going to be easy.
