So… semester break is here. And I’m not sure if I can celebrate yet… haha.
So I’ve passed all my classes so far… but still waiting for Parasitology results. They will be coming soon, but then again I will check on that tomorrow.
I spent the weekend in Manila and I just came home this afternoon. James took me down to his cousin’s place in Manila and we had a fun time hanging around Festival mall in Alabang, going to the pool, the golf driving range and eating at a ton of cool places. Our Korean friend Jae even came down and spent two days with us. We all had a fun time and needed some time to relax and chill for a bit since the semester was over.
In the past week, I’ve had my Parasitology final and like I said before, I’m still waiting on results. Not sure if I have to take a removal exam for that class yet, but we’ll see. Even while I was in Manila I took some time to look over my notes and go over things that I wasn’t too sure on during the final. Hopefully I won’t have to use any of it, but we’ll just have to see. After the Parasitology final this past Wednesday, James, me and my other friends Jae, Elma, Rosebelle and Faye held a small barbeque and gathering to celebrate the end of the semester. James cooked some chili and cheese to make a batch of nachos and also prepared some meat for marinating. The beef he got was supposedly imported from the US but all of it looked like thick slabs of bacon. It was all really good though. In my fridge I had some pieces of bread and some cheese slices so we made some grilled cheese sandwiches off the grill as well. Along with the nachos and such, it all turned out to be a great barbeque. We ended up finishing the all the food between the 6 of us.
After that we watched Wonder Bakery, a show about the Wonder Girls pairing up individually with an aspiring patissier (i.e. pastry chef) who was in their early 20s. It was an interesting show and since the series only spanned 8 episodes at 22 minutes per episode, we watched the entire thing in about 2 hours and 40 minutes. It was just like watching a long movie. The missions were really interesting. Most included making a special cake, but others included selling their a specific pastry that they had to come up with and make themselves. During the competition some of the patissiers were eliminated which brought in even more talented chefs to pair up with the now lone Wonder Girl. The winner of the competition won 10,000,000 South Korean won (which is about $8500 USD I believe). The competition towards the end was fierce, but in the end it ended favorably. I don’t want to tell you who won because I don’t want to ruin the surprise. If you ever want to watch the series, you can check out their Wonder Girls International Forum Spectacle and look under the Wonder Subbers section for the downloads.
So after a good BBQ, some more Parasitology studying and other things this weekend, I’m fully rested and willing to see what tomorrow will bring. Will it bring good news? Who knows. I can only cross my fingers and hope for the best.
