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.

a week to a 'Simple Beef Pot Roast'

It's a Sunday and the past week was, by far, one of the most eventful and fulfilling weeks in my life.

Well, it includes: (1) Friends, (2) Others and (3) Family
Though (4) Self was almost neglected (but since sleep was kind enough to be there for four hours at most), I'm contented.
During a late night chat, a friend asked me: "Why are you so hyper tonight?"
I think I overwhelmed him with all the laughing icons and excessive addition of letters to emphasize emotional overflow
(a likely example: waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!! *5 laughing icons*).
I answered: "I feel great! It's weird that I feel stressed but happy." :D

On one night of the week, I traveled and stayed out overnight (not to party, I assure you) a city away from where I live to be with my best friend who needed a best friend at that time. We all go through troubles in life and no matter how strong we perceive (or even if others think so too) ourselves to be, we all need a moment -- even if it was just a few minutes -- to give way to the pressure and let someone else be strong for you.

I don't really know what hit me to volunteer for GK (Gawad Kalinga) last Saturday (for a med mission) -- my last volunteer for GK was 4 years ago, which seems like decades away to me now. I was assigned to be in the 'youth development' (I think is what they call it) part of the med mission -- this simply involves playing with the kids and prevent them from distracting the doctors assessing people and the mothers waiting for their turn. I was there to help but it seemed they helped me more (psychologically and emotionally).

And on family day, I cooked for the house:
basing on one of my favorite chefs' -- Chef John of FoodWishes.com -- videos

We all know Filipinos love rice, hahaha, so I added the supposed mashed potatoes and turned it to potato cubes and added it into the pot roast.

Though it's not a perfect week (what is a perfect week anyway?),
I'm happy. :)

For the love of beef,

GK Volunteer? that was amazing... i used to do it before but wasn't given the chance anymore (time constraints). And your pot roast looks yummy. I love what you did with the potatoes for I am not mashed potato fan.

Your dish to me seems great, and as long as one is happy, then we can look the world in the eye and take everything that comes our way.

Enjoy your day, and thanks for dropping a line on my last post.
