Formal events

Saturday, January 27th, 2007

I’ve discovered that, although I am a good speaker for lectures, I really am not comfortable in formal functions. Just had to live through one of those, give a thank-you type speech on behalf of the residents, and general “everything was lovely” type fare. Everything WAS lovely, I guess I’m just not that comfortable with […]

What a week

Friday, January 26th, 2007

Two guys in my program had their computer hard drives crash on them, one guy had his car crashed on him. Everyone was racing all over the place to get their research done for tomorrow’s research day. And I procrastinated on packing. Of course, with my flying out early Saturday morning, I’ve been quite anxious […]

Need to pack

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

It’s really time I start to get seriously packing. But I just don’t feel like packing. It’s kinda weird really.

Beautiful song from Church

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

Take, oh take me as I am; Summon out what I shall be
Set your seal upon my heart and live in me…

Cooooookies….

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

My gym is so irritating. And yet still, they haven’t figured out how to straighten out my contract. Argh.
Anyway, baked another batch of cookies, and I really like these ones. I’m gonna post the final recipe in my online recipe book, but there it is as well:
Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (v.2)
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup […]

Work and play

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

Yesterday, we had our exam, which surprisingly was actually fair. Usually it’s way over the top, but this time everyone found it appropriate.
After the exam, went back to work, and in the evening we all went out to Ki for drinks and sushi. Well, not “all”, but a bunch of us. The sushi was really […]

Update on me

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Thankfully, last night was a quiet night on call. Finally rested from the last weekend. However, it’s unfortunately that time of the month when I feel like everyone is against me. Even though I fully understand that this entirely in my head, I still have trouble convincing myself of this. Hate this feeling. Well, I […]

Googoo on phone!

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Just got off the phone with my nephew. He’s a funny little kid. Here’s a snippet of intelligible conversation:
Tyler: Googoo? (That’s “auntie” in Chinese)
Me: Yes, Googoo here.
Tyler: Hi Googoo!
Me: Where’s Tyler?
Tyler: Tyler here, Googoo!
Me: Where’s Googoo?
Tyler: Googoo on the phone!
Me: Yeah, Googoo is on the phone.
Tyler: Gung gung! (Grandpa - his mother’s dad, definitely not […]

Mmm…. cookies…

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

So I shared some of my cookies today, turns out people like them! They didn’t find them too sweet. I still think for the next batch I’ll use less sugar. However, perhaps the hint of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom is a nice twist - perhaps I’ll keep that. As my “secret” ingredients.

Traumatized

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

Yup, that was a traumatizing weekend. The thing in it’s entirety wasn’t the busiest, but it just so happened that the really sick patients call decided to come in to the hospital in the middle of the night, so I honestly got no sleep. Spent yesterday resting, so feeling mostly better today.
Baked cookies yesterday - […]
