You know those salted eggs are actually made from duck's egg? I've been eating them for like 20 years and not until last week I found out what they're made of. Yucks!

I never eat ducks or anything associated with them my entire life. So when my wife made me ate those eggs on Wednesday, it wasn't long before my tummy started to disagree with what I had. I woke up with a bad stomach ache around 3:00 a.m and by morning I'm down with diarrhea.

Arghh. If I get to choose between fever and diarrhea, I'll have fever anytime. At least I don't have to go to the toilet every 30 minutes. I did go to work yesterday but after 10 minutes I rushed myself to the panel clinic nearby cause the pain was getting unbearable. The good doctor gave me one injection on my butt and gave me the day off to rest. I don't know why she insists on injecting my butt instead of say my arm? I suppose the medication will travel faster from there maybe? (OR she just enjoys seeing my butt ha ha!).

Anyway the shot works wonders on my diarrhea but not without a side effect. In the afternoon I felt feverish and later in the evening my wife confirmed that my body is quite hot. I did sleep for a long time yesterday and woke up around 4:30 with a slight headache, probably from too much sleeping. There was like 12 missed calls on my phone which I deliberately set on silent this morning. I guess I'm very much a wanted guy now huh?

Naturally after so much sleeping during the day, I find myself very much awake at night. So Linda and I spent some quality time together watching 3 episodes of Grey's Anatomy back to back up until 1:30 in the morning. Honey, I'm sorry I'm a bit fussy today and made you cook those porridge and 2 jugs of water and mind for Adam the whole evening. But after all it's YOUR fault that I became sick like this :)
