Choosing a Career

August 30, 2010 Pearl 0

My daughter, Izah, is graduating this school year from High School, and at this early, we have been asking her on the course that she wants to take for college. When she was in third year, she has been considering several courses, but now, I think she has narrowed it down to at least two.   It helped that their school conducted career orientation seminars, in which, the students were briefed on the courses being offered in various colleges and universities.  They were also given bird’s eye view of the career path of each course that they are considering.   At home, Read More

A Much Cheaper Alternative

August 29, 2010 Pearl 2

It was my husband who introduced me to the heart of Manila. I still remember the first time he brought me to Sta. Cruz, Quiapo, and Divisoria, I was so overwhelmed with all the people in the streets. I think I was sheltered by my parents and I wasn’t exposed to those places, and it didn’t help that my school in college was very far from the University Belt in Manila.  That’s why with our kids, even at their young age, we have brought them to the places that I haven’t been to when I was their age. They’ve been Read More

My Nuclear Heart Scan

August 21, 2010 Pearl 3

I just had my Nuclear Heart Scan or Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (Dipyridamole) this morning.  It was a 4-hour procedure to evaluate the flow of blood in the heart, to determine if there is a blockage.  A heart scan was done which lasted for 15 minutes prior to the stress test, and another 15 minutes after the stress test.  A stress test  is not like your typical stress test, because it’s minus the treadmill.  A medicine was injected through the IV, and its supposed effect was to mimic the actual stress to the heart as if you’re actually walking and running Read More
