Match Day

Match Day is the third Friday of every March where fourth year medical students learn where they will continue their study (residency, internship, or fellowship) for the next three to seven years. According to the National Resident Matching Program, 2017 marks the highest number of applicants and positions offered. Over 31,000 positions were offered; that’s 31,000 new young physicians!!

Match Day may be one of the most nerve-wracking moments of a medical student. Medical school is a strict time period where students are forced to isolate themselves from the outside world. Who knows how many gatherings, reunions, birthdays, weddings, funerals, etc. have been missed during these years. After eight years of continuous study (4 years undergraduate, 4 years medical school), these hard working students are finally able to start settling down. Daughters and sons are finally able to return back to their hometowns and reunite with their family and friends. Others may finally start new lives in new states. Wherever they go, these doctors are now able to practice with their own hands, a goal that so many years and efforts have finally conquered.  Continue reading

General and I

Eps: 62

This drama was based on the Chinese Novel, A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting to be Appreciated, which I plan to start reading soon!

Bai Ping Ting (Angelababy) is a refugee, taken as a servant in the mansion of Prince of Jian An. However, she is never treated as a servant. She is He Xia’s (Sun Yi Zhou) childhood playmate, who he evidently falls for. Dangerously rising to power, Prince of Jian An and his family is massacred by the King of Yan. Escaped, He Xia promises to take revenge for his family.

Bai Ping Ting is widely known as a war strategist and vows to help He Xia take revenge. However, she falls for the enemy, General Chu Bei Jie (Wallace Chung) of Jin. As star-crossed lovers, these two face both deceptions and romance in the mist of the war among the four states, Jin, Yan, Liang and Qin. Continue reading

Favorite Mukbang AKA Food Porn

Mukbang is a type of video where people film themselves eat, preferably a large meal/feast. Some broadcasters may even show you how to cook the food before too! In some videos, followers may join in conversations with the broadcaster in a livestream. Popular broadcasters may earn up to $10,000 per month! This trend started in South Korean and I have been hooked ever since.

I’m sort of picky with which mukbang broadcaster I like to watch. I’m not very into the crazy new food trends such as Hot Cheetos covered food. I’m more into delicious practical dishes that I would make and eat. Here are my top favorite broadcasters!

Quang Tran

Quang is such an awesome cook! He makes food from scratch and has a cute way of eating that makes me feel his love of food from my screen! He also has a dog named Kitty, who makes a cute intro! Continue reading
