Torturing Experience (Sick part 1 )

I decided to write a blog post here about the reason why I have been missing from my facebook account and my blog and even mobile phone for the past 2 weeks. A lot of people were wondering why though and as a blog writer, I need to tell you this.

The reason of all these is, I am sick.
Accumulated disastrous heat in my body since January I believe, had finally exploded.
The main cause was my throat, then the rest of sickness comes easily.
I'm not good at medical terms, what I know is that I suffered since then and now.
My throat was red and swollen until I couldn't swallow a piece of meat. And I could hardly speak.
Porridge was the main source for my body and yet I hardly finish it due to throat pain.
Day by day & I lost 4 kilograms. I was pathetically sad. I scared of losing weight!

The experience was never the same.
Staying 1 week at 'kampung', my parent's house.
Well, parents take care of you when you sick I guess and I really made my parents worried.
They took me to see different doctors every single day! I couldn't get any better.
And due to fever was on & off, they thought it could be Dengue.
So I went blood test for Dengue.
The result was, NOT Dengue. (everybody relieve after this)
They brought me to see an old Chinese man for 'washing my body' to see I have 'Mo Ban' or not.
I don't know what's English term for 'Mo Ban'.
The old Chinese man use duck feathers to dry-wash my body.
It is saying that if found a tiny golden color needle look-a-like on my body (I had a lot of them on my body after the washing), then confirm I have 'Mo Ban', which simply means TOO heaty!
Since I couldn't eat well, my stomach started to playing game with me.
Full of air when I get hungry and I had to wake up in the middle of night making myself a hot cereal drink.
When it happens, I couldn't sleep well, it was very irritating.
The most annoying thing was, it hurts a lot when I saw my parents couldn't help much and worried for me.

Another thing happened which I couldn't do anything but decide.
I quit my job. I am so sick right now and I can't think too much.
Since January I joined the company , I've taken 4 1/2 days of MC ( before & after CNY)
I'm a fragile human being. Without thinking twice, I just quit.
So now I have 1 month to fully recover. In the same time, I need to find some freelance job to do.
I still have car installment, mobile phone and etc. Well, its just headache to think of it now. Everything comes after my recovery. Just concentrate for better health now.

And today ( in KL) noon time I went to see doctor for my throat.
Doctor gave me 7 days of antibiotic (Augmentin, amoxycillin + clavulanate potassium), a bottle of Throat-Spray, Thymol Gargle and sorethroat pills.
Total bill was RM 150 (he said that antibiotic was expensive).
So he asked for next appointment after 7 days, to see my throat I guess...

There are ulcers everywhere inside there! I almost cry looking at the mirror!
Two days ago it was only few spot and now it gets worse.
It happened though, so just have to deal with it.
Smart move today by going to see doctor!
So now my throat still painful just like 1 week ago....
What to eat? because I can't swallow a thing. Now drinking water is painful.
What Chinese herbs anyone know that can cure this ulcer throat thing ?
What can I do now ?

Chinese New Year is Over

There was no disaster. My CNY was great I could say. 
Father and brother weren't drunk on CNY eve and they all came back home midnight for Bai-Tee-Kong. It was my dream that moment like this happened. I just wanna get through it peacefully. Not to mention my mother wanted me to buy a red shirt which I did and we all were wearing red shirt that night. Hehehe. Too bad no photo proof. But here some photo that night when we were preparing for Bai-Tee-Kong and the fireworks all over the place in the sky of Tiram Buruk....Hahaha.

Here got one short video I took before Bai-Tee-Kong. 
I was hanging out with my cousin and saw this red light on one row of houses. 
It happens to most of the Chinese villages I guess..hehe

CNY 1st day I brought my best fren - Cheryl & my mother & sister to Aquaria KLCC. 
The ticket was worthy because we could see shark swimming through our forehead. Hahaha.
We supposed to go Batu Caves after that, but they were tired after fishes. I guess its the walking distance that make them exhausted. See you next year Batu Caves. 

CNY 2nd day we went to Port Dickson. My dad works there so he knows the direction. 
Driving hours total was about 5 hours back and forth. And I didn't even change my clothes for beach. 
My intention wasn't to having fun there but driving them there. 
I just don't want my family disappointed when I say I don't wanna go because most of the time I don't go anywhere. 
Well, my 2 brothers never join family trip though. They have their own friends though.
My skin was burned and red color now. 

I didn't do anything but just the driving and sitting under the pavilion.
We 'robbed' the pavilion opposite of shower-toilet room. 
The entry for peeing was RM 0.50 and shower for RM 1.00.

The tent on the beach rental was RM 40. We rented one for relative. Pavilion was free though. 

It was never my choice to go such place. Haha. But I'm glad brought my family there. At least we went some places during CNY this year. 

So basically Chinese New Year is over now. Everyone is now rushing back to KL because working start on Monday. Few of my friends already complaint about the traffic jam that they stuck for few hours. Of course, you just have to be smart for planning this because its peak season especially Chinese New Year. 

Now I need to get everything done before I start work on Monday.
Sincerely wish everyone had a great time on this CNY 2011.
