Week 7, 2012: OB, Valentine's, and a walking pawnshop
We're halfway through our OB-Gyn rotation, but it already feels like forever. Our day begins at 7 am, the summary rounds, where clinical cases are endorsed to the next rotating service. The Chief Resident often calls us to enumerate, among others, the criteria for vaginal delivery after cesarean section, signs of placental separation, and the different types of abortion.
There are occasional small group discussions, too. This is how we all look like during waiting time.
After our Bible Study Workshop-cum-Prayer Meeting on February 14, we headed to Suzhou Chinese Restaurant along Mabini Street, a couple of blocks away from campus. When we arrived, our tables were waiting for us. Apparently Ruby, our trusted organizer, had them reserved hours before (thanks, Rubs!). We had a great time of fellowship. The food was overflowing.
I had tofu + century eggs, the others had noodles (in amounts that could feed a crowd), and spicy meat (I don't remember the names anymore). We had a so-called demo-return demo in eating the Xiao Long Bao (Chinese soup dumplings). We, the men, surprised the ladies with simple origami artworks with Proverbs 31:30 written on them. "Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised." Praise be to the Lord for these brothers and sisters in Christ, my family in the College of Medicine. What a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day!
Here's a random photo of a man I saw during lunch time. Notice the number of gold rings he has? He's like a walking pawnshop.
