MC 3 days & Happy Chinese New Year 2011

Most of people in the office might thought that I had been abused the medical leave rules by taking 3 days off for only coughing & fever, and I just started to work for only 2 weeks plus in the company. Coincidentally, it is Chinese New Year holiday week right after 3 days of Medical Leave. So Wednesday to Friday I was on medical leave and the next following week is holiday week for Chinese New Year.

Well, I didn't purposely took 3 days of MC, technically it was just 2 days and a half. So, this is the story. I was having cough on Tuesday night, so I took Wednesday off to see doctor. Wednesday was officially my 1st MC day. Then Thursday I went to work in the morning with my drowsy condition due to medicine because I had only 1 day off from doctor. I wasn't feel well in the morning and until after lunch I had cold & hot, on & off ( I scared it would be fever). Really wasn't focus at work so I requested to my manager that I had to go see doctor again for such condition. He said ok and take good rest. He was kind. So this is the thing. If take MC half day to see doctor and the next day you going back to work, do you really think your condition allows you to do that? It is not just a headache though. Fever, cold or coughing, you need at least a full day rest at home. Why still go to work when you are still sick! So I told doctor that I might need the next day off as well because coughing + fever, oh gosh, how could this happened to me when Chinese New Year is around the corner. She was kind too and said yes I agreed because you need more rest. So Friday I was on MC. Total 2 days and a half.

I know I could just go to work on Friday and whole day blurry in the office with such condition. But fortunately I didn't. Friday off was the best day to me because I rested enough and fever was gone. Such a relieve on Friday night when I had my mood back. :D So, now I'm kinda worry what would management think of my action, taking so many days of MC in 1st working month. Bad impression it must be....

I am not fully recovered yet the moment I writing this blog now. Tricky phlegm in my throat is pretty annoying I must say. One good thing to say today is that I still managed to get new shirt for Chinese New Year as order came from my mother that all of us must wear new shirt on the 1st day of CNY, if possible get a RED one..haha. Well to be honest I'm not that 'Pantang' but I'm a good boy listen to mother. So I got myself 2 polo-shirts (Red and light Green). I'm sure she will be happy to see me wearing red shirt.



Here I wish everyone a long Happy Holidays and a joyful Chinese New Year with your lovely family & friends. Right now, I don't feel the 'moment' yet...but we'll see when the real day comes. :)
