I have got a sprained wrist.....and I got a resting hand splint....haha besides the one that I made for my classmates in poly, which I can't wear, this is my personal one for me to wear it.

Thanks to my godzilla cousin, well, actually, I don't know how he did it also. He isn't really that strong considering that he is only 13y.o. He can't even beat Min in an arm strength challenge. Nevertheless, he managed to twist my left wrist and "crack", everyone heard a sound. It went really swollen on Monday and I had to see a doctor. My dear sup said that they can actually make a wrist splint to immobolize it during work so that I don't further aggravate it.

However, until now, I still have severe pain. Wanted to see a Chinese sinseh today but suddenly came down with fever. Luckily, I saw a good dr (I will frequent that clinic whenever I get real sick cause they always make me recover) who found out that I was having stomach flu and immediately gave me med, although I don't feel so much symptoms yet. Now I'm fever free.

I guess a good GP makes a different. Whenever I visit the GP at my neighbourhood, I always end up sicker. I was very impressed, once again, by this GP in BB that my bf introduced me to. He doesn't just stopped at checking your temperature, and asking whether you have flu or cough (which I didn't have). Well and if you didn't, he dismissed it as possibility of URTI and just give you fever and anti inflammatory medicine. Nah, he didn't do any of those that is what typically the drs in my neighbourhood will do. Instead, he proceed on to ask me how was my appetite, whether I felt any stomach upset, whether I feel any bloatedness, any need for vomiting. True enough, I did felt this symptoms, but I thought I was just experiencing it as I have fever or I took a uncomfortable ride home on Friday that cause all this.

After that, he checked my stomach and found out I do have pain and bloatedness. He even answered me patiently and explained how he knew I had stomach flu, despite I had no diarrhea and I did not vomit, just felt like vomiting only.

I am truly impressed, as he really spend a thought to really investigate what it was. He spend a thorough 20 minutes with me. In fact, I was impressed with his foresight. His final question to me was that whether I have gastric problems. And the reason he asked me that was because he told me that I will have poor appetite due to the stomach flu and I will then experience gastric as I'm not eating well, hence he will need to prescribe me gastric medicine to help me through too.

Of all the years I have been seeing my GP in my neighbourhood, no one bothered asking me this question. True enough, I always experience gastric after fever or stomach flu and never once, from my neighbourhood GP, I received such thorough examination.

Honestly, if you see a good GP, you will end up recovering faster and you don't need to spend even more money just to get better because the GP prescribed you with medicine that doesn't treats your problem. Just like now, I don't have anymore fever. I didn't have diarrhea as I had medication to prevent that. I only have some slight gastric pain but I still could eat a little. I'm recovering pretty fast compared to if I seen my normal GP.

I guess I just have to travel a little bit further to get good consultation, considering that the clinic is in Bukit Batok and I am in Woodlands. Plus, the fact is, the bills are much more expensive compared to when I see my GP in my neighbourhood, but hey, it gives good results.

Caught Painted Skin with Ken this week too. I supposed it's a show I would have never gone to watch if Ken didn't proposed it as I doubt my friends or my cousins would watch it. However, I was surprised by the movie. The CG were crap though, the stunts too exaggerated but the love and emotions that flows in the movie, it was so real and you could really feel for the characters. Being me, the silly person who always cry at sad scenes, I teared alot in the movie, as I felt really sad for the wife in the movie. I must say I'm impressed with Zhao Wei's acting this time round. I hardly see her in such role as a faithful, devoted, matured wife. Not a bad movie to watch after all, and it's really not scary at all!

Time to rest the poor wrist.....which will get too numb and painful if I type too much.

I.......got a new haircut! Super super short haircut.....you wouldn't believe that I really have that short hair now. It's that short until you can see my face features very clearly and that everyone is commenting that it's so much shorter!

Still, I'm happy with my comments so far....positive or negative (although I must say the negative ones that I hear are all pertaining to the fact that they prefer me with longer hair so I look more small girl).

Anyway, I did my BCLS course yesterday and whoopee! Passed upon first attempt, luckily, as I didn't want to redo 5 cycles of 30 compressions over and over again.

Caught Mamma Mia today too.....all ABBA songs, although it sounds funny to hear some people like Pierce Brosnan singing (he looks like he's trying hard to shit).

On a more backdated note, I went for 2 weddings on last Sunday, both of them being Ken's friends. One was at a beach, very lassiere-fairz, with the groom in a white shirt/bermudas/slippers and the bride in a white tube dress with hair hanging loosely and messily around. However simple it may be, it was a nice event. Simple, and casual, and heartwarming.

The other wedding was the usual Chinese wedding dinner at a grand place. As usual, nothing to comment about except that I can't help noticing that my juniors (we are all from same sec sch) looks pretty matured. Maybe being OTs help u look younger and more sloppy compared to people working in business arena.

Looking forward to my non working Saturday again! A weekend for proper rest again! Yay!

I was reminiscing with my cousins and my friends on the previous few outings I had with them, and I was reminiscing again today by myself. Hence, I decided to blog down some funny or memorable entries, as I didn't had a blog at that time but it was pretty memorable.

This first interesting memory that I had happened during my poly school days, whereby we were given an assignment and we had to pretend to be disabled so that we can have a feel of how it is like and whether the environment in Singapore is disabled friendly. Azi and I paired up together for this project, of course, with my best friend. I was the one who was in the wheelchair and she had to be the one who is visually impaired. This funny incident happened when I was sitting in the wheelchair and she was my caregiver (not blind of course).

Being adventurous, we went to Orchard Lido Cineplex to catch a movie. We went to Megumi's house to pick up the wheelchair and we caught a cab to Orchard. The nice cabbie uncle offered to carried me into the taxi which we vehemently refused, well, you should know why. I'm not really paralysed and I'm sure he can feel that my legs aren't jelly if he carried me. Then in the cab, he asked me what happened and whether it was permanent. I have to blub out some story that it was some accident. To make it worse, he continued asking me whether life was easy for me after the accident which of course I answered that "I'm trying to get used to it", then I kept quiet hoping that he wouldn't ask me anymore questions. Luckily, he didn't asked me anymore questions.

Orchard Lido Cineplex is the worst place you can watch a movie at for a disabled person, particularly one on a wheelchair. The lift only stops at the car park, after which you have to travel through the carpark and then you have to climb a flight of stairs. Like how am I going to climb a flight of stairs when I'm paralysed in my lower limbs? So it took 3 persons, 2 men and Azilah to carry the wheelchair and me up that steep flight of stairs and into, Lido Cineplex. I was already very embarrased by then, having to have 2 men to carry me up the stairs.

To make things worse, we, being too overambitious, thinking that we have a wheelchair, bought a large popcorn, with 2 drinks and 2 ice cream cones. After which, we happily went into the cinema, with the help of a stairs elevator, that brought me and the wheelchair up to the cinema. We only realised what we had done when we went into the cinema. As I said, Lido is really not a disabled friendly place. There are no places to accomodate a wheelchair and hence, Azi had to transfer me to the movie seat. They placed us at the end of the cinema too, right in front of where the entrance is. So, we were blocking people coming into the cinema when we were pondering how we are going to do it, given that we had 2 ice cream cones and a large popcorn and two drinks to attend to.

The hero, at this point, appeared. A macho guy with lotsa muscles that was sitting in the seat in front of us, stood up and offered to help. We both knew he was going to offer to carry me but of course, we would never let him! Owing to the fear that my fake disability may be exposed. Hence when he asked "can I help you?", we both say animously "Yes, you can! Please help us hold the ice cream!". After which, Azi thrusted him the ice cream and hurridly transferred me to the movie seat, leaving him standing there with 2 ice cream cones looking surprised.

We could never forget his face and the sight of him with 2 ice cream cones. We were giggling like mad behind him and trying to stifle up our giggles. After which, we laughed even more as we tried to recall the incident.

The best was, a week later, we both went back to the cinema again, as the silly me dropped my pass in the cinema. I went back, wearing the same clothes but this time, I was walking. Ha, I supposed no one recognised me. Guess, this was just some fun I was trying to have.

Brain has stopped functioning now, although I would like to reminisence more but I'm feeling very tired. Guess, I will have to continue some other time when I remember.

I had a nice little dinner with ZY and LLS at NYDC Heeren yesterday.

Yippee! Got to eat Jedi Mudster again and Mushroom Ham baked pasta!

Strange atmosphere. ZY looks really embarrassed when I asked her about why LLS knows she has gotten her **********************. Plus Ken said I'm a lightbulb, made me kept thinking that I'm one.

I don't know why it's really a strange atmosphere. Am I thinking too much again? Or is it really that my ultra sensitive and accurate radar picking up something?

I know ZY reads my blog and blink blink, I must be frank to tell you that the atmosphere certainly didn't felt like 3 friends having dinner. It was how it felt when it was back in Australia when you and J hangs out together (b4 everything).

Ah, humans, complicated as always. My point to raise, I know that you both are new friends getting to know each other and maybe have more to catch up....but everyday...talking on msn and sms.....and I meant alot alot alot.....well I don't know.....just take things easily yeah.

Addicted...........

To Azumanga Daioh the anime!

Silly little anime that is really random and about high school girls. Reminds me of high school life....haha but I don't have such random friends till I went to JC and poly....they are more funny and random and more to my frequency.

'

I like her the most, possibly because she's the coolest but with a hidden identity.



I like her too! Cause she's really in her own world and very very random.

Addicted addicted....haha CY is gg to say that people who spend their time watching anime is gg to be really wasting their time....haha but I'm one (winks).

Some things are just so funny. You know certain things exist but you never really were into them until something sparks in your mind.

Just like this song...I once helped Cy to look for this song lyrics and did up her blog for her, and I heard her said multiple times about this song, but I only got into it now, after watching Wall.E.

Just like how I fell in love with "I wish you love". I was watching this show with Meryl Streep and Uma Thurman and that song caught my attention.

I'm feeling very touched these few days. Thank you to my dear friends, my dear colleagues and my dear bf for being so concerned about me.

Especially with my colleagues. I'm deeply appreciative. I didn't really have this kinda warm experiences with my colleagues in my previous work place (except from my dear OT friends in that tiny little office).

My thanks goes out to my sup, whom ran up and down the hospital to get my medicine and brought the sample for testing. To the registrar who saw me and ran up and down to get me treated. To the MSW who smsed me to ask about me as she didn't see me and gave me advice on how to prevent the illness. To the colleague who helped to cover for me. To those colleagues who saw I was in pain and came to show their concern. I'm truly touched, having to receive such kind of treatment after working 3 long years. It makes me happy and it makes me want to work hard for them.

Not forgetting, thanks to my dear bf who was so worried. Dear LS who came to visit me. Dear Cy who asked me everyday how I'm feeling. Dear Denise who showed concern. Dear Kris who I know is busy with her baby and work but still took time to ask how I am.

I'm not having a major illness, just to clarify to those who are reading my blog. I'm just in the mood to thank all these people whom are so kind and helpful and concerned.

Perhaps, I have been watching too much Wall.E. Feeling sentimental. Luckily I never caught Je'taime Paris, I probably would cry.
