The picture shows my daughter , his boyfriend and the one in eyeglasses is their friend doing wacky poses . The three of them are now doing their pre-residency at one of the prestigious hospitals in the Philippines , St. Luke's. And would you believe that they are now doctors since they already passed the Medical board last September ? Well, I won’t ever tell my daughter –doctor that despite me taking my anti-cholesterol pill lately , I ate McSpicy burger and fries last night after our dismissal from work . I know what she will tell me.

How does it feel to have a doctor as a daughter? Well, I was once a pre-med student but I didn't become a doctor. I went home to my hometown and continued my studies there. I shifted to accountancy and because I got married before my graduation, I was not able to take any board exams and I landed a job in the local government of our place. I attended review classes for the CPA Board Exams but was not able to continue because I have already a toddler to take care of. Being a doctor is far from what I am today... so very far. Good luck to your daughter and her friends....

Our children can sometimes overreact specially when we are treating ourselves and eat some foods that might aggravate the one we are treating , that's why . So we better not tell them .

Thank you my friend . It is hard for me and her father to economize so we can always give her her needs , laptop etc. and a big allowance so she won't go hungry in Manila . And now after 9 years , when she finally be earning her own money while she specializes after her pre-residency , we can at least relax and have money for our own .

Yes, she would always call and ask how we are doing specially when she is informed that i am or his father on cholesterol medication . Anyway , my cravings are rare . So when i am stricken by it , i give in . Maybe twice a month ? Is that bad enough ?

@SIMPLYD No, it's not bad at all, I think we need to satisfy our cravings time by time, or we become frustrated.

Thank you . I don't know if that is offered to other countries . Maybe because here in our place , people are so into spicy foods , that's why they offer that .
