Things have been picking up as my Maxillofacial Surgery rotation comes to an end. I’m taking more responsibilty helping the registrars and consultants out and we’ve had an influx of weird and wonderful emergency surgeries taking us late into the night. It is sometimes frustrating being the Medical student because your signature doesn’t count (so I always have to run after the the registrars to sign off simple forms) and you don’t get paid, but it’s nice to feel useful and part of a team :)
With weeks like these, I’m inclined to shut myself off on weekends and cancel lunch and dinner dates, but I’m glad I have friends who are very persistent. Last night I was dragged out of my lounging slumber into the rainy night to have dinner and “catch-up.” After a Japanese dinner, I had an immence craving for Fried ice-cream, unfortunately the search failed (sold out!) so Kevin suggested a cute new dessert joint called “Passionflower”.
The place was extremely popular with a line widing out the door. The dessert menu had a mix of Western and Asian influences and everything sounded and looked so good that each of us changed our minds at least 3 times! My friend had to physically take the menu away from me so I would stop changing my mind. ^^;;
Desserts are extremely photogenic, so couldn’t miss the chance to snap everyone’s orders :D
