Friday, March 09, 2007I woke up this morning, all ready to start a brand new day, looking forward to school, when my right eye felt a lil weird. So, I went to look at myself in the mirror and to my horror...
with flash, my eye looked like that...
Oh yeah! My right eye puffed up like that of a goldfish's/ET's.
without flash, my eye looked like this..
closed my eye..
Scary... Half my vision was blocked in the right eye and I had difficulty opening up my eye. At first, my momma and I thought that it was an eye infection and so decided that it wasn't safe for me to go to school. So I went back to sleep.
When I awoke, my left eye felt weird too! OMFG! Both my eyelids had swelled up like cream puffs. I am officially a goldfish. Then it occured to me that the last time such a thing happened to me was because of a drug allergy after taking a jab which actually was to bring down my temperature then. Anyway, momma urged me to go consult the doctor. So off I went to see the handsome doc.
So the dear doctor confirmed that the cause of my swollen eyelids was due to the same drug allergy although caused by different medication. (Last night, I self-medicated by taking some of my sister's painkillers for fever.) Ha! I felt so dumb!
So yeah. I am allergic to all drugs under the NSAID group except Nidol. Doc offered to give me a jab and some other pills to bring down the swelling but I didn't want to. I rather do it the natural way - drink more fluids and flush it out through my system. Hence, my eyelids are still a lil puffy now.
Argh! Regretted self-medicating last night 'cos it was a damn beautiful day today for swimming and I can't really go without being able to see clearly. *pouts*
And everyone (momma & aunts & gramps) made fun of my goldfish eyes. Bleah!
Tuesday, March 06, 2007And so laziness set in...
I so apologise for the lack of updates in the past month. Well, my timetable has been pretty much jammed-packed for the past couple of weeks and will continue to be quite hectic in the upcoming month.
So February had been pretty much a month for festivities and pigging out. Wanna wish everyone a belated Hap(pig) Lunar New Year. I actually shopped for my new year clothes and shoes on the Eve of the New Year itself. Spent a grand total of $610 on 5 tops, 4 bottoms, 3 pairs of heels and pedicure+manicure session all at Holland Village. That aside, I can't believe I went crazy during those 15 days of the Lunar New Year, gorging on the goodies like some swine. Goodness! The bak kwa, the eggrolls, kueh bulu, pineapple tarts, roast duck, roast chicken, roast pork, sweet soup, seafood soup, etc. Yeah, I did put on back quite a lot of pounds after all those feasting. *pulls my hair out*
And then there was this assignments deadline to meet on the same week of the Lunar New Year holidays. It was pure madness for me, having less than 2 hours of sleep then. Ended up being high like a junkie, whistling and chirping with the birds outside the window after submitting my assignments. Heh! K and E would know.
Nearing the end of February, I had to help my aunt with some of her wedding stuffs. These duties include - designing a wedding poster, getting the guestbook and pens ready and doing reception work at the wedding dinner. Well, being the very efficient me, I managed to design, complete and frame up the wedding poster in 2 days! Rushed off to get the guestbook and pens just 3 hours before having to be present at the restaurant at 6pm.
Got to the restaurant and realised that things weren't ready yet! Took charge of the situation, bossing the waitresses around, telling one of them off for bad service, blah blah blah. Ok, so I got to feast once again that night. And then, feasted again the night after at some vegetarian restaurant. And then again at the wedding lunch buffet the next afternoon. This is bad! I have yet to work off my Lunar New Year's feast, I've piled on another 3 layers of fats. *depressed*
Now I'm contemplating bout liposuction, tummytrim, etc. NAH! I'm kidding lah! The best way to lose those pounds around my tummy area is to watch my diet and exercise! Less food, more exercise - greater output than input! *roars*
