I fell really sick on Sat when we woke up. Hubby companied me to the clinic and waited good odd hours before it was my turn.

High fever at 38.5 increasing to 38.7 during the wait, doc said she suspected it was H1N1, but I wasn’t in contact with anyone, so, it’ll be home quarantine and 3 days observation before she could really conclude anything. Meanwhile, I had to have the Tamiflu tablets, that cost me S$45 for 10 tabs. Ridiculous, the expiry date on the box was 2008, but there was this sticker by MOH, extending the expiry date to 7 years after manufacturing date. Isn’t that bizarre?

2 days coping at home, or should I say, coping in the room, I finally recovered a bit on Monday. No more high fever, but mild at 37.7degC. Doc extended my mc to another day. Gosh… that was not good.

Stayed in the room for 2 more days, and I felt really “sick” at home, I could turn mouldy anytime! I found myself watching the 4.30pm the super-long Taiwanese drama my MIL was “chasing”…

How glad was I to be back to office on Wed. Although I was really really giddy working, I was wondering if it was the medicine or it was really the bug. This is a super bug I am fighting with.

Today, I am still out of breath, but I felt so much better!

During my few days rest at home, I was lucky my MIL was understanding. She cooked porridge, hubby had them delivered to the room. “room service”, he called it. He was sweet throughout, watching me sleep like a pig, coz other than awake to eat and take medicine, I was asleep throughout. He really has the patience.

It was unfortunate coz Sunday was my birthday. It was supposedly a significant birthday in my life, coz I was turning 30, first time as wifey, a woman. ;-)

Hubby promised a good meal when I have recovered completely. For now, I am looking forward to go home, to feel family warmth. :-)

The very first step towards perfection...

4 lil' thoughts
I am taking the very first step towards perfection... Or at least I hope it is the very first step.

I meant eyes perfection. Yes, I have finally decided it is time to get my eyes “perfected” by LASIK. ;-)

I am still concerned about the side effect, but when I read forums that are related to LASIK, I am kind of confident it’ll work out just fine.

First thing first, I have to get my eyes evaluated, if I am a suitable LASIK candidate.

I explored SNEC’s (Singapore National Eye Centre) website and was rather impressed by the technology and the price. Well, I admit I am not those who go to various websites to compare the prices or technologies. So, SNEC it is.

So coincidently, my colleague went to SNEC for pre-assessment just weeks ago. She passed me the brochure, in which I passed to hubby and asked him to read, “Make sure you finished reading it tonight dear”.

When he is done, I asked, “so, how? Can I make appointment? I thought of getting it done by National day”.

It’s actually less than a month away. Hahaha… yeah, when I have decided to do something, I would really want to do it IMMEDIATELY.

Hubby said, “ok, but when will they be free for appointment?”

“I’ll call and check”, I said.

I did.

The customer service officer was very friendly, and she asked if I have any preferred surgeon. Well, I said no, coz the rates are different from SNEC Assigned Surgeon, to Consultant and to Senior Consultant.

“Ok, let me run the system for a while and see who is the surgeon assigned for you”.

“Oh… ok”

“Sorry to keep you waiting. We’ve got the name of the surgeon, and she’ll be Dr. Cordelia Chan. She’ll be available on Mon and Wed noon; and Fri morning and noon”.

Although I preferred to have Saturday consultation, I opted for a Friday morning, thinking I could go back to office right after.

“Ok, Friday morning. We’ll give you a MC for that”.


I am very excited now. I can’t wait to have the result, AM I A SUITABLE LASIK CANDIDATE? Or am I destined to wear contact lenses and glasses for the rest of my life?

To be revealed on Friday! ;-)
