Singapore celebrates Nurses Day on 1 August, unlike other countries that celebrate Nurses Day on 12 May, the birthday of Florence Nightingale. 1 August marks the beginning of the development of nursing in Singapore.
Mommy has been a nurse since year 2004 for almost a decade before choosing to pull over on to the pit stop to focus on the little monsters at home. She has been celebrating this special day since then and every year, she would give and receive some meaningful gifts as a recognition of their contribution to the patients, especially all the Ah Gong and Ah Ma.
So this year is no different and she has made some hand crafted gifts for her ex colleagues and bosses.
