what are you so freakin' busy with?

I could be employed right now but I went back to school to be a student.
I could be financially self-sufficient right now but I stayed dependent on my parent's monetary provision.
I could be the type of person who wouldn't care if time passed but I chose to be the person who feels guilty when time passes and I haven't done anything productive.
I could be sleeping well more often than now but I chose sleepless nights to study for an exam that I wouldn't pass with outstanding marks anyway.
I could be reading tons and tons of novels I have been wishing to read but I chose to be buried in books on Human Anatomy, Surgery and even Parasitology.
I could have more free time than now but I chose this life-consuming career path just so I could earn an 'MD' after my name.

I could be in a community as a Public Health Officer but I chose the path to becoming a Doctor for the community.

In the end, I feel I have been prepared for this. Not just by my friends, mentors and my family... but by God's will. Let this be done.

14 December 2009

a year older

I didn't actually feel like it was my birthday today. I woke up with a very bad abdominal cramp and worrying that I haven't studied well for my 'human parasites' exam (I fell asleep on my books without reading them) due to being tired the previous night studying for the National Medical Admission Test (NMAT).

Stressed... but oh well. :)

After all my classes for the day, I went to the mall with two of my friends and we ate cheesecake (fave~!).


We had fries and some junk food (just this once, we deserve the break, :D).

I just came from dinner with Auntie J, Den and mi Mami (she traveled 7 hours from home to celebrate my birthday with me since mi Papi and my siblings were busy with work and school).


We went to this famous Thai restaurant called Som's Noodle House. They serve authentic Thai food.


chicken wrapped in pandan leaves

shrimp fried rice

chicken red curry

chicken satay


milk tea

Are you drooling yet?
Our orders are kind of chicken-y but 'twas all good! :D


After that, we drove to Red Ribbon for cake, doi! :P


Smores cake!
(marshmallow, graham, chocolate... *sigh*)

Haha! You're so cute. Belated happy birthday dear.

I didn't know that the chicken-wrapped-in-pandan-leaves is a Thai dish. The pandan leaf definitely made a twist on a regular fried chicken, right? Ooh, love the cake! I haven't tasted that yet.

Good luck on your NMAT dearie. :)

Lots of love,
