NEW ORLEANS: CELEBRATING THE 4TH, NOLA STYLE

Travel

After celebrating Pride weekend in Houston with a bang, and spontaneously driving to Austin half-drunk, my travel spirit is back, and I just need to wander somewhere outside Texas every weekend, or even just Houston, since Texas is almost the size of the Pangaea, and driving for 12 hours won’t take you anywhere but Texas. Haha. So for this July 4th celebration, we’ve decided (read: I decided) to see what…

ON HIATUS. 

Blog, Medicine, Personal

I am very much alive, but life had some #priorities that need much attention. Spring semester was crazy. I was full time at work, and enrolled a full load of courses at school. And since those were not enough to fill my calendar, I was also studying for my upcoming MCAT whenever I got the time during the past semester. But sadly, I had next to none, which led mo…

ROLLING ICE CREAM: A classic treat from Thailand

Food

When you have five or more friends posting/snapping about rolling ice cream, you better join that bandwagon and check it out. First of its kind in Houston, Class 502 offers this recent dessert phenomenon from Southeast Asia, originating from the streets of Phuket, Thailand. Since its opening, it has been a recent attraction in Dung Hua Plaza so expect a long line especially during the weekend. Fortunately, when I visited today (Monday),…
