It's been one month since many of you started a commendable new trend of adhering to the keto, paleo, no-carb, or fasting diet. Diets are one of the things we struggle with because we have no self-control over our cravings. I can't count the numerous times we've made a midnight drive to Wendy's to get … Continue reading Cheat Day
Connecticut is just a train ride away from New York City, albeit a very long train ride. New Haven isn't known to be a popular place for others to visit, unless they were looking to visit Yale University, because most of the area is pretty desolate and, unfortunately, not safe for tourists. Nevertheless, New Haven … Continue reading Dessert Hopping in New Haven

I never went trick-or-treating. I was one of the very few children in my neighborhood who never experienced the joy of cutting holes in their white bedsheets for their ghost costumes, or carried an orange hollow jack-o-lantern pail door-to-door yelling "trick-or-treat." I never experienced dumping my collections from the night and counting how many kit-kats … Continue reading Trick or Treat

With tomato paste! Unfortunately, this clever joke didn't exactly come true for us.

We love farmer's markets because we believe that dishes can taste substantially better when the ingredients are fresh and are grown with less pesticides.

Well, not really. We loved visiting Sleepy Hollow during October because the entire neighborhood is decorated in scarecrows and pumpkins, with an eerie feel throughout the streets.

Dieting is no easy task, especially for many individuals who have demanding jobs, stressful family lives, and hobbies such as blogging and gaming. We usually never diet.

Diners have a bad connotation when it comes to food. People often assume that the food has poor quality with a cheap price tag.

Everyone loves a one-stop-shop to get all their needs, which is why Amazon and Walmart is as popular as it is.

Phuket was a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok and a perfect mix of urban and rural Thai life tucked away in the southmost region of Thailand.

Imagine walking through a deserted street lined with flickering street lights and abandoned warehouses in the dark, so barren that you could even hear a pin drop.

As fourth year medical students, our last year is filled with time for interviews for residency positions and free time for electives and, most importantly, traveling.
