Week 25: Typhoon Falcon
On the second week of class, tropical storm Falcon arrived, bringing with it torrential rain showers that flooded Metro Manila. Even our campus wasn't spared. While it was raining outside, we were stuck inside the Class 1972 Theatre, listening to lectures on Infectious Diseases. It didn't help that we were talking of Leptospirosis which only added to my classmates' anxiety of wading in the flood.
My Pharmacology research group, which happens to be the 20-membered block I'll be rotating in the hospital with, also had a dinner meet-up. It was to celebrate the birthdays of some of our groupmates, and to wish Marvyn Chan and Lennie Chua well as they represent our group in a research conference in Hong Kong next week. We ate at Max's, where the Chicken All-You-Can promo was on-going. After that, we went to Lee-Ann Caro's condominium for more bonding time and wine-tasting.
