sickly weekend

I'm terribly sick since yesterday. And I hate it.

When I woke up yesterday morning, I felt that I already got the virus coz my body is not feeling okay. I tried to be alright for the whole day but it turned worse when I attended that presentation hel by Network coz I felt suffocated in the back office and it clogged my nose to no end. Prishy was there and she was saying something to me but I can't seem to understand her so I'm just saying yes to everything she says (hope nothing important that needed a "no" answer). Even the guy from Network kept on telling me something but my brain refuse to process such information so I guess he thinks it's useless to talk to me. Well, I couldn't help it. Then when I came back to the office, I forgot to remind them regarding the info that Makram wants to pass them (felt guilty but it totally slipped out of my mind coz I'm concentrating on during the whole training not to sneeze and sniff).

Then found some arabic sweets left by Mazen in my table. Afterwards, had a little birthday celebration in the office. Had to hide in the back coz my nose is crying non stop and I had to stuff tissue to it. And I lost my taste buds (not literally) that time that the chocolate cake taste like bitter cake, wtf!

Went home shivering so I just decided to eat some noodles while watching "Die Hard 2". Man, Bruce Willis still does have hair! I sort of got addicted to "Die Hard" I watched all the series and had to pay AED20 to watch the last series on tv. 

Back to being sick, the thing I hated being sick is that first of all, I don't have any stock of medicine at home. I found some but it's for cough. And currently I only have cold and flu and I don't want to take medicine that it's not for cold as my body has this stupid habit of getting sick when I took a medicine especifically for that certain illness. I took once a medicine for cough eventhough I only have fever and later on got cough for some reason. Also there was a time am having pms that I don't have mefenamic acid I took the medicine for lbm the next thing I know I really got lbm. Then there was time as well that I can't sleep and someone from the clinic gave me a medicine for anti histamine that will make me drowsy and help me sleep but when I took it, later on my allergies came out I became itchy I can't sleep for the whole night. So now am becoming a bit cautious of the medicine that am taking. Whew, what a hassle.

My body really feels heavy and my fever is not going down. But I don't have a choice but to do my laundry (I regret for being lazy last week and skipped doing laundry). I only did one batch coz I'm feeling dizzy. Cooked some pasta for lunch coz am already starving to death. 

I almost regret also volunteering to go to the office tomorrow but I think I need to anyway to get some medicine in the clinic. I need to take something as my cold and fever is getting worse. Times like this, I can't be lazy coz nobody will take care of me except for myself. It sucks to be alone.

Right now, my nose is so stuffed it makes me hard to breath. I need yo sleep early coz I woke up very early this morning (I first woke up around 4am coz I heard my flatmates were chatting or cooking outside then I woke second time around 7:30am - the usual time I wake up every morning).

Hope my condition will be okay tomorrow so I can finish work early then I can pass by quickly in the supermarket to grab something to eat. I don't have enough supplies in the house now. Living alone really sucks!!!

being upset on weekends

I'm pretty upset.

It's a hair issue again. You see, after 15 days of coloring my hair, I applied the color reactivator to my hair (as per instruction, it will reactivate or enhance the color I had on my hair). Thinking this might be a good chance to have a pure jet black hair, happily applied it and did everything as per instruction. Since I finished late last night doing it, I went straight to bed sleeping with wet hair. And caught cold the next day, ampf!

So today, I excitedly checked my hair on the mirror. And to my grimace, seems like there were parts of the old reddish brown color still there. And I can visibly see them now (am hoping it's just my imagination). And I asked myself, why? Did the color reactivator reactivates my old color that were not colored by black? Waaaaa....

Anyway, I cooked spaghetti yesterday. I wasn't able to manage the measurement of the ingredients and I end up cooking a lot of sauce (it's good for more than five pax) so I may end up eating it for a whole week. I already ate it for two consecutive days but it seems like there still a lot. Well, what to do. Atleast all I need to do when I come home at night is to cook pasta and reheat some sauce.

I can't wait for October. Am so excited to see my sister and brother in law. And of course all my family in Manila. I miss eating homemade dishes. I miss eating Filipino foods. I miss everything that it makes me feel homesick just thinking of it.

Oh my god, am so proud of myself. Was managed to sort my wardrobe after soo long. I mean, the last time I fix my clothes was a year and 7 months ago. I know I know, it's been quite sometime but I kinda been so busy I don't have time to do it.

But found a lot of interesting stuffs like two brand new towels (been planning to buy for months), guess it was given to me when I joined which is more than two years ago and a lot of dresses that I haven't worn (most of them are from H&M, didn't notice it though).

And this weekend, my version of tom yum goong was a total success. Am really proud of myself. But deveining the shrimps was a nightmare. I almost throw up while doing it. Unbelievable.

Hmm... So I drag myself to watch some tagalog movies out of boredom but it seems like a total waste of time. All of them are crap. This is the reason why I'm not very fond of watching them.

Got allergies attack again coz I bought green mangoes and bagoong last thursday night. And then I just ate shrimps. Bagoong, shrimps and fish sauce were not my bestfriend so now am itchy all over my body. Have to eat a lot of chocolates to counter it.

Anyway, gotta go. Need to work again tomorrow.

hair prob

I seriously wanted to scream.

You see, I had this wonderful idea of dyeing my hair on my own. I've never done that before but since I thought it would be too simple to do, I tried my luck.

After long hours of washing, coloring, washing and drying, I was too excited to look in the mirror for the result. To my grimace, it's not that well even. There's still some brown left on my hair. But the roots and ends were perfectly colored, how come the body of my hair were not? Waaaaa...

I'm not sure what to do, am thinking to buy a new set of color to color my hair again but looking back of the hassle I went through, maybe I'll just bear having two tones for now and go to some decent salon when I have time.

And I was too excited and happy to have a super jet black hair. My hair was not naturally super black. It's black but not that black. So the thought of having one will be good since a lot of people were colouring their hair in either brown or something a bit different from their original hair color. But it turned out like this. Soooo sad.

Anyway, what's done is done. Now I've learned my lesson not to color my own hair.

Btw, it's confirmed. They saw the moon already. So it's a long weekend, yipeee!!!

Happy eid mubarak everyone! :D

I'm so worried I don't know what to do.

The hardest part is that I'm far away from them I'm being ignorant of what's happening there.

I don't know what to do. And it's eating me up from inside. I don't know what help I can offer nor any consolation. 

Why I feel like being useless in times like this?

I think it runs in our blood. So I'm not the only one.

And I need an outlet for this. But I don't know who I should talk to. And me myself is in current shaky situation.

Haha... Funny, maybe I'll get crazy first here.
