Happy Lunar New Year

Happy Lunar New Year! It’s the year of the Rooster~
Looks like it’s going to be a good autumn for Tigers like me!

Traditionally, during Lunar New Year, my  large family would gather together for a feast. Often, we would sit together on the ground and grill meat and seafood; then we have the option to eat the grilled meat with vermicelli noodles or in wraps with rice papers and veggies.

My First Shadowing Experience + Tips

My first shadowing experience was during the summer of my junior year in high school. Looking back, this experience definitely encouraged me to study medicine.

My first shadowing experience was with a pediatrician that my younger cousins go to. He is known to be the best pediatrician in the city where I lived. In his clinic, there was two pediatricians (including him), a resident, a third-year med student, a nurse practitioner, and about 5 nurses. For a day or two, I shadowed a pediatrician. For the rest of the time I shadowed, I followed a third year med student. I was able to see how pediatricians do their job and how they taught a med student (and getting pimped). Also, I had the chance to ask what responsibilities med students were required to keep up with (classes, tests/exams, rotations, experiences, etc). The med student I followed gave the patients a basic checkup first; later, the pediatrician would come in and complete the visit. The resident and nurse practitioner checked on the patients just like how the pediatricians were able to. Occasionally, I would be able to see what the nurses did before a pediatrician or med student walks in.

I love my first shadowing experience since I was able to see different levels of medical professions. Continue reading

Favorite Youtubers

Listing my favorite Youtubers, I realize that almost all on my list are vloggers. I love watching vlogs to learn more about how others are living around the world. There’s more out there besides studying. I tend to have their videos playing  when I’m eating but do not want to commit to an hour long drama episode or in the background when I’m working on decorating my bullet journal or small tasks.

These are listed in no particular order~

Its been weeks since I have finished Princess Weiyoung. This drama has amazed me from the beginning. However, I was not prepared for its ending.

Every day, I would wait desperately for the episodes to be subbed. I was clearly obsessed with this drama. This was literally the only drama I watched for about three weeks.

Side note, I was thrilled to hear that Tiffany Tang and Luo Jin, the stars of this drama, are dating! They’re absolutely adorable. Their OST has been on repeat for weeks! Continue reading
