Food & Dining


Ate’s been having problems with Biostat. BIOSTAT at 3rd year Pre-Med! Will she even be using it as she prepares for med school? NO. So I don’t know why there is even such a thing as BIOSTAT in her course! @_@

Give her anything to memorize, even the most difficult & longest term imaginable, she can deal with. But BIOSTAT? She was tearing at her hair. And seeing her like that also made ME want to tear at my hair.

Biostatistics (or biometry) is the application of statistics to a wide range of topics in biology. The science of biostatistics encompasses the design of biological experiments, especially in medicine, pharmacy, agriculture and fishery; the collection, summarization, and analysis of data from those experiments; and the interpretation of, and inference from, the results. A major branch of this is medical biostatistics, which is exclusively concerned with medicine and health.

I’m so thankful that my friend IRENE gave me the number of MINDSET, a tutorial center (400 php/hour). Unfortunately for us, all the tutors can only do meet ups in Makati, the farthest. So Ate & I, along with the 2 younger kids (coz that’s how we roll), went to Glorietta to meet with the tutor.




I bumped off the coffee houses from the list because it’s not conducive to studying. We saw an empty KICHITORA at the 2nd floor & we camped out there for more than 2 hours.

KICHITORA brings together the winning recipes of Kohmen, Kookai and Daijin Р3 famous ramen and soba chains in Tokyo. Kitchitora, which means LUCKY TIGER, is a Ramen chain but also offers other japanese dishes on the side. It was empty when we got there at 4PM but quickly filled up by dinnertime..

Chintan / Shoyu Ramen. Regular 320 php; Small 240 php. Chintan ramen is a salt or soy sauce-based clear soup ramen topped with your choice of chicken or pork chashu, bamboo shoots (menma), green vegetables and spring onions. Light yet satisfying, this is the fundamental bowl of ramen.

Thankfully, we were able to hook up with a tutor nearer to us so Ate doesn’t need to get even more stressed with the travel & traffic. Hay, ang hirap ng buhay estudyante! I’m SO glad I’m over that stage in my life. Nakakaloka! @_@
