Asia Trip 2024

During my 3-month sabbatical in 2024, I planned a trip to Asia with some friends. We started in South Korea, then went to Vietnam and Cambodia, and ended the trip in Malaysia. I was really curious about Vietnam and Malaysia because I have heard a lot of Americans slow travel there. The US dollar goes far in those countries. You can rent a high rise furnished apartment with views and a/c for $300/month.  South Korea was probably my least favorite from the Asia trip. Seoul felt like being in NYC where it took 1 hour to get anywhere whether by metro, car, or foot. I expected it to be more f ..read more

Trying Out Healthcare in Spain

For my 3-month sabbatical in Spain, I decided to get private health insurance there. The policy was cheap, only $70/month (including dental). I did not have any co-pays or out of pocket expenses. Since I had a lot of free time, I planned to get all of my medical check-ups while in Spain. I scheduled appointments for a physical and labs, pap smear, and dental exam and cleaning.  My physical was interesting…. the doctor was at lunch and showed up to the appointment 1 hour late. There was no one to take my vital signs or weight – he worked solo. The doctor asked me what I was there for, I s ..read more

Trying Acupuncture

I have been a fan of acupuncture ever since one of the clinics I work at often, provided acupuncture for free to its patients. I have seen patients find relief from their illnesses through acupuncture. Acupuncture had helped relieve their chronic headaches, anxiety, back pain, neuropathy, and even helped them quit smoking.  Ever since I had my 3rd covid shot (2nd booster) more than 2 years ago, I have been experiencing chronic headaches. These headaches are a form of occipital neuralgia. They occur every day but only last about 20 minutes. It is a sharp pulsating sensation to t ..read more

I Quit Another Telemedicine Job

1M ago
I had a recent post about my experience working in telemedicine again. I am still working with that company. But when I had applied for that position I had applied for several others. One of the other companies paid a guaranteed $70/hour instead of per visit, which I liked. Because sometimes telemedicine can be slow so at least you have guaranteed paid and do not waste your time. This other telemedicine company reached out to me to start 2 months after I had applied. They had a requirement that you have to work a minimum of 20 hours per week. At that point I had decided to take the FL assignm ..read more
