Whoa, I feel really bad for not being on my blog for the last couple of months. For that, I have to apologize… especially since this is my final year, there should be no excuse for me not documenting it! So here’s the deal people: I’m finally a 4th year student. Been through many ups and downs, but here I am, in the final ( ::knocks on wood:: ) year that I’ll be at the University of the Philippines Los…

Is upon me! I can’t believe it! It’s almost the end of the semester and I can’t believe that I have 2 weeks coming up which won’t have exams in them. I’m really happy, but I still have to read a bunch of things for my Radiology, Canine & Feline Medicine, Zoonoses and Equine Medicine Courses. As much as it seems like I have tons of time on my hands since I only have class most days for a few…

Now it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything related to food, but this one is so amazingly simple that I thought many of you would enjoy it. This past weekend I went out with my friend Kamille and she took me to a Korean chicken restaurant called BBQ Chicken. I’ve wanted to go there before since it’s endorsed by my favorite Korean girl-group the Wonder Girls, and so we took a trip over to Makati and ate there. They had…

So… this past week on February 4th, was Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year as some of you may call it). In the midst of my week which admittedly was not so bad in terms of exams and classes, we decided to get together at my place and have some great food and watch some TV and movies. We had a great time and watched a movie called 200 Pound Beauty. It’s basically a story about a very obese…

… doesn’t come very often in my life at CVM. But here I am in the middle of one of the rare moments where I don’t have an exam at all during the week. And it’s pretty nice to know I can relax and just chill for a bit and not worry too much about any impending exams. Lots of things are going on right now. About to really get started with my thesis work (which is the characterization of…

I’m extremely tired right now. This week has been extremely taxing, and I have three exams this week. Two of which I’ve already taken in both Large Animal Surgery and Zoonoses. Today was basically my “day off” with no exam, but I still have to finish studying for my final exam this week for Ruminant Medicine tomorrow. Yesterday we just extremely tiring. I got up at 6am and didn’t get home until 8pm which pretty much made my day about…

Okay, so not really, but it HAS been awhile since I’ve blogged and I thought that now would be a good time to update you all on what I’ve been up to. Of course, the last time I put up a blog it was to say that it was almost Christmas time and I was about to fly back to NY. Well now I’m back in the Philippines getting back to the grind. But I thought I should summarize what…

Yes guys, guess WHAT TIME IT IS? It’s almost time for Christmas! Can you believe it? In just 7 more days it will be Christmas. And guess what? I’m in the airport right now about to leave for Hong Kong and then I go on a direct flight to New York City. I’m again sorry for not posting in awhile. I’ve been busy with Christmasey stuff. Christmas parties, gift-wrapping, final exams and the like. I’ve had to deal with a…

Hey guys, Right now I’m in a resort in Anilao, Batangas, Philippines waiting for breakfast to be served. I have a cup of coffee on my right and am typing this on my netbook right now. The view at this time is pretty amazing. It’s 7am and the water looks pretty calm and the sky is pretty blue and the cloud are flying by. We have another dive trip soon, and will be making a total of 2 today at…

This past Saturday, November 20th, was my birthday. My 25th birthday to be exact. I didn’t mention this fact in previous posts because I initially did not really want to make my birthday a big deal. The fact of turning a quarter of a century did not seem like a big milestone to me… in fact, I kind of was embarrassed since I was getting so old. But I realized that it was still something to celebrate and that getting…

So I’m back in Los Banos, Laguna, Philippines. I promised myself and you guys as well that I’d write a more detailed post about my trip to Hong Kong and everything else I’ve done in the past 2 1/2 weeks so here it is. Tonight’s the last night I have before I have to head back to school tomorrow, so let’s recap what I’ve done. I’m going to divide my vacation into different posts since I spent it in two…

Hey guys! I’m back from Hong Kong and I’ve been meaning to write about it for awhile. Unfortunately, I’ve been really busy these past few days. After getting back to my home in Los Banos I left just two days later for my cousin’s place in Antipolo. I’m here right now and have been working in his clinic (he’s a vet) and tomorrow I’ll be heading to Quezon province to visit my cousin-in-law’s parents. After that I’ll be heading to…
