Pretty much spent the weekend recovering from flu. Started out about 2 hours into the gang’s gaming session on Friday night with a terrible sore throat after drinking 2 Cokes at McDs. The pain only occurs when I swallow, and it was really sharp, and only on the right side. :O
The night did not come easy. Every swallow kept me awake, and drifting in and out of sleep I was till 6am, when I had to get up to catch a bus to Bangi. Being almost sick, I was hoping that a fever would break out so that I didn’t have to attend this event, but it didn’t.
So off I went. I decided to drive there instead, since my wish might come late and force me to retire early. Our business division’s Technical Day was being held that Saturday morning. It’s basically sports day, but with events disguised as technical sports. Only one rang true to its name, which was ‘Get Online’, but the rest were pretty much the usual fun stuff. 🙂
During this time, my nose started leaking. It didn’t leak much, but due to the lack of available tissue paper, I had to sacrifice my red Nike shirt to stifle it. It would’ve looked weird with me carrying an extra red shirt around, but fortunately our House color was red, and it looked more ‘patriotic’ than odd. I took part in the water event, and the aching calves I got after the relay race didn’t help my condition at all.
The whole thing finished at around 4.30pm, our House had won and we’d just finished raping the hampers for our share of the spoils of war. I quickly drove back home for a quick rest before having to leave the house again that night.
It was a wedding that my mom refuses to skip. The groom’s mom was a high school classmate, and there she’ll meet many others whom she haven’t met in a long time. The venue was at Felda’s Dewan Perdana, pretty deep in KL but not hard to get to. It was fun seeing the ladies catch up. One of them even brought some black and white photos to share with the rest. Now I’ve got one of my mom dressed up as a cop in a costume party. Cute 🙂 While they were having fun I would’ve died of boredom, but fortunately one of them brought a daughter whom I had a good time talking to. Too bad she’s engaged tho.
The whole thing left me going through 18 pieces of tissue. I’ve also started sneezing sneezes that somehow want to pull something out of my lungs. Needless to say, I was out for the count the following day, staying in bed and having porridge meals. Was supposed to go to Masjid India to get stuff for the Singapore folk too, but it couldn’t happen with my condition. The flu and the sports event have left me aching all over, and I found it hard to walk properly. I definitely need to visit the condo pool more often.
And today comes Monday, and I was planning to take the day off when my boss reminds me that I need to set my Technical & Functional competencies for the next performance year. Bleh. It was he who told me to wait for the bigger boss’ email, which only got mailed out Friday night. Note to self: don’t always listen to the boss. 😛
