Just a short update because I figured I’ve not updated for way too long. My Hong Kong Part 3 post has been in progress for the past few weeks (with no signal of where it will end) so I’m procrastinating on it.
I decided to take annual leave for the first 2 weeks of October, and then after meeting with a friend on Thursday I ended up with food poisoning since Saturday. So yes, do the maths, I’ve been sick for six days already, when usually cases like these end in like 2-3 days.
(For those who were curious, it was a place that is 4 letters long, starts with M, ends with O and looks vaguely like my wordpress username in the city)
At the moment I still feel crappy and I haven’t had much to eat. I’m tired, grumpy, irritable and hate my annual leave so much because it was probably better off spent working instead. Why I bothered to take leave in the first place (which was to apparently “rest, recouperate, get healthy”) is a complete question mark because my whole situation right now spells out bullshit.
I’ve never had food poisoning in my life, and this is the first time and I can say it’s horrible. I’m sure there are worse feelings in the world, but for the meantime, I really really hate it and will continue to hate it.
On the brighter side though, since I did have some problems with digestion and whatnot before, hopefully this can be seen as a cleansing experience and I will encounter less problems later on. After losing a hell of a lot of sleep, water, and at least 2 freaking kilos, I sure hope that in the next few days I can well and truly “rest, recouperate and get healthy”.
Take care everyone, and beware of what you eat – it was the worst feeling ever (seriously) – in comparison to this, the flu is nothing!
I’ll be back when the time is right.
