Lessons from Mommy

The best way to teach is to show how it is done. And my mom is one of my 2 all time favorite mentors.  From her I learned to partake in the joy of others. One of the earliest memories I had of my mom is I think when I was about 3 or 4…

South Korea in 7 Days: Tips and Tours

The highlight of Korean Tourism is Hallyu (it is a term first coined by the Chinese press in 1990s to describe the growing popularity of South Korean Culture). Most tourist spots have “kdrama significance”. Even locals engage in conversations asking if you like Kpop. They are aware that most tourists visit their country because of…

Don’t Best Friend Me

Familiar with the heartbreaking valentine commercial Jollibee gave us? We all hurt for the best friend who lovingly and willingly watched at the sidelines. Let us look at the real culprit for this story that back stabbed our emotions. When most of my guy friends call they’d start “Dude!” and I’d say “Yes bro?” They’d…

A Lesson from The PLE

Dear Medical Students, You may be gearing right now for the most feared “death march”. Probably, it hasn’t even started yet but you can’t wait for it to be over. I know. Been there done that. It was so draining and stressful that after 1st year death March (2012) I cut my near-waist length hair…

What Heo Joon Jae Taught Us: A Moral Lesson from LOTBS

Legend Of The Blue Sea finale is beautiful because it transcends happily-ever-afters. And we can learn so much from it. Whether you’re a kdrama fan or not but for as long as you know the word love and patience you should continue reading. SPOILER ALERT!  Sim Cheong played by Jun Ji Hyun had to leave…

Do You Give Yourself A Pat On The Back?

Today’s lead role goes to King Nebuchadnezzar (let’s just call him King Neb for short or Pareng Neb if you want). King Neb had a dream and he asked Daniel to interpret it again (He had another dream which Daniel interpreted for him previously, but that’s another story). This dream is a warning that he’s…

He got this!

Hi meet Daniel, he is someone who almost has everything to look up to. He’s got looks and he’s got brains. He was also offered a nice job (probably high paying, he’s gonna be serving the king after all!). In line with this job offer he has to train and prepare himself.  But the catch…

Nakakainip

Aminin mo minsan nakakainip maghintay. Lalo na kung ang lahat ng nasa paligid mo ay mabilis na lumilipas. Nasaan na? Traffic ba? Ang tagal baka nahagip ng motorsiklo habang tumatawid, ayun napilay, lalo tuloy tumagal. Madalas kaysa hindi, nakakadala na sumabay nalang sa agos, makisakay ika nga. Lalo na kung meron naman gustong humawak ng…

Human Stress-balls

Almost 2 weeks of OB rotation and I realize that this field is actuallly cool (yeah, kadiri too HAHA). Its stressing and draining, yes but its rewarding. I won’t forget that mom who was screaming and twitching with pain while the resident was stitching her laceration and yet smiled brightly when her newborn cooed. But…

Pre Duty From Repeat

Lately, I have been tired. I mean who doesn’t? It has already been 6 months of this PRE DUTY FROM cycle. There are days when I’m just pumped up to go on duties. It’s actually kinda fun. The cases you get to see and the cool stuff you get to do. You get to poke…

For The First Time In Forever

I am doing this entry because yesterday deserves it! HAHA! For what felt like centuries, its our (at least for me) first time to once again live a day like 14 year old’s, carefree. Overlooking the Taal volcano while playing catch, laughing, teasing, running and dancing until we we were all breathless and drenching with…

I.M Awesome :))

So done with our IM rotation! well generally I’m happy its over only because it means i’m done with one of 4 major rotations for junior internship. I’m having separation anxiety right now haha!  My apprehension before the start of June (IM rotation) was sky rocketing. Like hello! My first rotations were relatively chill and…
