When I said that I want to travel and see places once I am freed from the responsibility of taking care of Snoopy, little did I imagine that I would get to get away from Ipoh every month, planned or unplanned, and yes, I did travel from February onwards, except for one month. April, I think.
A couple of days ago, I had the occasion to visit Hospital Selayang, a Government specialist hospital in Selayang with a very confusing postal address (Lebuh Raya Selayang-Kepong, 68100 Batu Caves, Selangor Darul Ehsan). To meet an appointment, we had to leave the house at the ungodly hour of 4.30am and hop on the express bus at 5am and head to Kuala Lumpur.
It was very dark on the highway and it was pouring. I was worried that the journey would not go as planned, hence, I couldn’t sleep a wink. How envious I was of other passengers who looked like regular commuters of the 5am trip with their blankets and pillows!
Fortunately, we reached Selayang Hospital as planned with some time to spare too. I took the opportunity to shoot some photos when I was there but by looking at the photos, one would think that the place is rather deserted. That’s a false impression.
The gaudy pink colour on the exterior of Hospital Selayang reminds me of a Sekolah Kebangsaan Rendah (national type primary school) in a small town but the size is definitely way larger! I didn’t know about this hospital prior to this trip; it’s surprising to me that it’s almost ten years old already! Oh well, hospitals aren’t places that I normally want to visit!
By 3.30pm, we were done and it was time to head home. Too bad that the hospital is so way out, it would be difficult to go anywhere except by taxi and then it would be too costly and time consuming!
