A spot of lung disease updates!
COPD and ASTHMA updates by world experts
I spent the weekend in Taipei which was absolutely lovely. Google was wrong, the temperature dipped to a chilly 12 degrees on arrival. I nearly had to dress like Heidi ( Not Klum but Spyri's Heidi) The speakers were very good. And they walked us through the new GOLD guidelines for COPD and the rational behind changing it. That was useful.
Held at this lovely hotel
The hotel was nice. My only complain was the lack of free internet service leaving my fashion outfits expiring within the first few hours in Taipei. En route to the hotel, I spotted a Starbucks, so when the concierge said no free internet, I immediately thought of coffee at Starbucks. Sadly...you must pay for wifi there as well. Aargh! So no facebook-ing during the weekend. Which wasn't at all bad because we roamed the streets late in the evening only returning past midnight with tired bodies and emptier pockets
A spot of photography during the Q+A session
This is a picture I took with the zoom of the G11. My favourite in the set of pictures taken indoors for the moment. I shall upload more pictures in the next few days.
The name of this blog was shamelessly pinched from that wonderful programme starring Joanne Lumley and Jeniffer Saunders. Thank you for dropping by...
Most of the pictures are my own. When I can remember ( which is only lately) I credit the folks whose pictures I blog. Apologies to the owners of earlier pictures used in this blog. Back in the dark ages, I wasn't as tech-savvy as now.
Edina Monsoon has an Mb Bch Bao degree. Following a 3-year stint in the great Malaysian outback (Tawau, Sabah) she now lives and works in Kuala Lumpur where she contributes to the traffic on a daily basis. She has moved towards a more arty-farty lifestyle with blogging ( roll eyes ) and is now attempting to gain recognition as a more than adequate amateur violin player.
God if you can't make me thin, at least make my friends fat.
