  2. Hi Dr. Chi

    I came across your blog today. I must say, its like walking into the Garden of Eden of written words; one is tempted to gobble it all in one go but there is so much to feed on. Withal, you find consolation
    in knowing that tomorrow you can always come back to relish on another banquet of words. Thank you for providing a haven for literary junkies like me. Rest assured, I will be coming here from time to time to quench my nigh insatiable hankering.

  4. Hello Dr. Phoebe Chi,

    Your establishments and achievements are very inspiring and admirable. I am going to follow you. Just like you I worked for 4-5 years in Indian hospitals as a medical officer in Internal Medicine department and pursued MPH. We share many career background similarities. On a humorous note, apart from the career background similarity another similarity is you are following me and now I am following you!

  6. I’m glad to have been introduced to your blog and look forward to following you. Our daughter graduated from UNT, like you did, and is a molecular biologist/geneticist in Houston. And she has dogs – 3 now between her and her husband. 🙂 I just noticed those similarities right away between you and my daughter. Your blog looks very interesting and beautiful!
