Sick again. Retarded.

Last night, I fell ill again. For some reason, my tonsils hurt like mad and I had a fever again. This is retarded. Seems like mother nature has a score to settle with me. I've cheated on her by not falling ill for several years and now she's just out to get me! Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

I woke up at 4.30am this morning due to my fever and I was unable to go back to sleep again. However, things are under control as I've been taking paracetamol every 6 hours again. The effects should wear off at around 11am later. My medic friend told me that it was my fault that I fell ill again as I went around with the lion dance before recovering completely.

Well, that was the only way I was getting any good food for Chinese New Year okay! And seeing that I had not been back home to taste good food for 1.5 years already, I was desperate for some! English food is tasteless, and most Chinese restaurants here are nothing but MSG. Most of my friends cannot cook and so, I'm left with little choice but to resort to lion dance for good food!

I've got teaching work to do later this morning. I hope that I'm up to it. If not, I should email Mick to tell him that I'm not coming in today and he should try to get Roland to replace me. But seeing that it's all under control at the moment, I don't see why I cannot go teach later. I'll just get more rest later this evening.

A nice friend was nice enough to offer to get me groceries, but I'm good for another couple of days or so [I'd have appreciated a massage though! haha!]. I hope to get well soon cause I've got a whole bunch of things scheduled for the weekend. I'd even paid for tickets to watch CUMTS sing this Sunday!
