Nuclear Magnetic Resonance


Previously, we got two NMR equipments in the faculty. But due to the man's ignorance, one of them is blown up in the fire incident. So only one left for us to run our samples. NMR is quite an important for the structural confirmation especially when it comes to the new compounds. 

Currently, the waiting list for NMR is damn long. Well, each of us not only has one sample but many of them. For 1D NMR, it takes less time than 2D NMR. However, waiting for my samples' 1D 13C NMR took me ages. Well, how long to run the NMR is depends on our sample. If you got much weight per sample, less time is needed. 

Maybe I should pay so that I can get my result faster than others.

Influence Of Running Man

Running man is a top Korea variety show. It's kind of addictive. The show is quite funny. For me, running man is a damn good show because it promotes the places as well as the food. You can google it to find out more about running man.

Watched last 2 week episode - Great Inheritance. Well, they need to cook. The green team - Gary, Jihyo, Haha, Kwang Soo, Yoo Ah In - decided on trinity combination - spicy soup of ribs, chicken, abalone. Ah In is seem to be a good cook as he became the leader for the cooking. Like that kind of guy.

Inspired by that, I made my own spicy chicken soup.

Spicy chicken soup
My cooking

I made the seasoning paste and kept it in fridge overnight since I need to be at the faculty earlier than usual.

Seasoning paste - Blended garlic, pepper paste, soy sauce, honey, ketchup, chili flakes
No exact measurement - follow your taste

This is what I do for the spicy chicken soup.

1. First, steamed 2 chicken wings. After the chicken is cooked, keep the chicken stock.
2. Take a cup of chicken stock into a pot together with the chicken parts. Saute the chicken with the paste evenly. Heat it for a while.
3. Then, put the vegetables (carrot, potato, celery) in - vegetables are cut into small edible size. Add 2 - 3 cups of chicken stock.
4. Season with a couple bit of salt and sugar - or until it fits your taste.
5. Heat off after let it boil for 10 - 15 minutes.

The original recipe is here.

Writing An Academic Blog???

I am a subscriber of Next Scientist ebook. Well, I have to admit it is a good site for student like me. Recently, me got a new ebook written by the founder of the site, Julio entitled 17 simple strategies to survive your PhD. She is sharing her experience during pursuing the highest level of education.

Basically, the strategies are already known but yeah, some people do not apply them. Even we are PhD student, we are still enjoying my life - watching movies, hang out with friends, karaoke etc. One of the tips is write a blog. It would be nice to share the journey of getting a PhD degree - the thick and thin. Well, my sister had suggested it before. I'm not a good writer. 

Plus, I'm just share whatever I'm doing in my life here. 
But can take it into consideration.
