Here's a rejection letter.

Dear Dr. duke:

We have reviewd your application and will not be extending an offerto interview. I appreciate your interest and wish you the very best in thefuture.

W*l**m H. H****r, M.D.
Program Dirrector
M****d Family Medical Center


and for posterity's sake, (or just mine), i need to say that my first thanksgiving was spent browsing the net for cheap mp3 players. belated happy thanksgiving. i think that a holiday such as this will do the Philippines some good. one day each year to count your blessings and be thankful for each little good thing that has come your way. and lechon manok would be fine instead of a turkey. and for pilgrims we'll have mga bumbay. five buuds.

anyway, look at our tree, it's not finished yet. syempre nagkulang kami sa ilaw. malay ba namin ganun sya kalaki kase. tatlong araw na pala ako di nagswesweater. umiinit na dito. parang pinas nga. naka on na ung erkon.

It's not what you think it is.

It's NOT herpes. it's an aphthous ulcer.

my lips crack and my skin is so dry that i have to use lotion, moisturizer and lip balm. ang bango bango ko na tuloy. kiss me bebeh. heheheehe. tae.
i repeat, it's not herpes.

We put up the Christmas tree tonite after much discussion as where to position it. it's a big one with a very broad base. we haven't installed the lights and the trimmings yet. that'll come in the next days. it's been more than 10 years since i helped build a tree. i guess it's time to feel the spirit of Christmas again.
mewi kwismas y'all. :)

Oh let the sun come in...

Due to the cold weather i'm not used to, i've resorted to some desperate measures....sunbathing.

that's the spot iwhere i lie down with my dark glasses, all bundled up in sweaters and pajama bottoms and socks.

so where have i gone so far? i've been to three, yes, three supermarkets! yahoooo! hahahahaha.

oh, and i've started reviewing. bummer.

Dumating ako dito nung isang araw. Nung nasa pinas pa ako, tanong ko sa ate ko kung kamusta ang weather dito, sagot ba naman saken, parang pinas daw. magdala lang ako ng jacket. o e di nagdala ako ng jacket.

paglabas ko sa erport, aba, biglang nangatog ang tuhod ko, nangatal ang panga ko at nanigas ang utong ko. tae! eto ba ang weather na parang pinas??

syempre ang tawag nila dito ay "pleasant weather". well kung ganun e ayoko na malaman pa kung ano ang cold para sa kanila. at kung ganito naman kalamig ang titiisin ko e magsnow na lang sana para sulit ang nginig ko sa ginaw. hehehe.

pinagkamalan pa akong bumbay sa Walmart.

"Five buuuds, fo my brrrrudah."

Fish Be With You

Jasper, Lucky's drinking buddy passed away last week. Well he was an old man to start with, and depressed. I think he drank himself to death.

He was a silent being. Never complained about anything. He kept to himself, except for the rare moments Lucky needed a drink. Eversince his passing, Lucky has gone back to drinking from her own water bowl.

may he rest in fish..erm..peace.

having heard all kinds of horror stories from doctor friends who have applied and been denied of a US VISA to take their exam, i have been scared of going to my own interview. this was a make or break situation. If nurses are given visas left and right, doctors need to cut off a limb to convince the consul of their return.

this was a job charm. *snickers*

i was interviewed not by one, but by two consuls. not in a booth but in a room. I figured out i needed to bring out all the charm i had -- double strength.

let's just say it ended up with them giggling behind the glass wall and me walking out of the room with my yellow slip, smiling and of course, singing.


kidding aside, i'm thankful for all your prayers. God is good.
