The end of GP and 1 week holiday

GP Rotation is finally over after a multiple choice exam last Wednesday and 2 oral exams on Friday.

How did I do? Only time will tell. I always find it hard to gauge my performance, especially during oral exams because I can always think of things I could’ve said or things I could’ve managed better. All I can say is I hope I didn’t fail!

Ended my GP rotation performing a wedge resection of an ingrown toenail – sounds gross but I was pretty excited!

We have this week off before starting our Surgery Rotation next week. No plans to go anywhere or do anything in particular but time is flying. It’s already Monday!

I miss the GP Clinic already, it was such a wonderful place to learn. Thinking of starting a new rotation next week makes me nervous already…

Krispy Kreme – Realizing a month long dream

The first thing I ate when I arrived in Australia back in January 2011 was a Krispy Kreme donut at the Sydney Airport.

Since then, it has become a little bit of a tradition (now shared with Mike as well) to get one every time I pass through Sydney.

We have been meaning to break that tradition for over a month now (since even before Meaghan’s visit) because there is a Krispy Kreme store in the city. So after a long wait and one failed visit – closing time and no donuts left – we finally did it!

We bought a pack of 6 donuts for $12.95 . So expensive compared to Tim Hortons at home, I know!

We got from left to right: Original Glazed, Caramel Latte, Raspberry Glazed, Choc Caramel Fudge, Apple Custard Crumble and Kookies & Kreme.

Verdict? The donuts are delicious. But they’re all made from the same batter with different toppings and fillings. Gets boring pretty fast. I miss the donut selection back home from Tim Horton’s with its different textures, consistencies and flavours.

The Choc Caramel Fudge was tasty but both Mike and I think it would’ve tasted much better if the flavours were reversed – caramel/butterscotch filling with a chocolate glaze on top instead 🙂

Kookies & Kreme – yummy filling!

Apple Custard Crumble – our favourite of the lot.

Would we buy these again? Yes, but definitely not more than 1 per person per visit. The donuts are good, but like I said, the dough is the exact same for every donut so excitement is quickly lost. Not to mention how terrible these are for your health 😛
