World Cup ....flu ....

Arh... I was down with a real terrible flu over the weekend ... on the eve of the World Cup. It seems all the exercises and nutritions have no match for the influenza virus! However, the good news is I never have had such a 'big' flu since two years ago, so I guess what I am doing is still right..LOL. And, I also needed to rest more as sleeping at 1am daily seems not doing a good thing for my health.  Well, I was bedridden for 2 days, thanks to the super drowsy meds and I had to miss the world cup matches, and only managed to catch the highlights. Anyway, glad I am better today and managed to catch the Italy v England match.

It was a soothing lunch today when wifey cooked up a boiled soup with lots of ingredients inside. She called it her steamboat kinda dish. Since I was kinda dehydrated, its very comforting to have something warm and soupy.


I will get some Vit C later as well as Hor Yan Ho herbal drink. I also requested the doc to jab me with a flu vaccine as I really hate to get another one. Hope it will chase the flu away for a long long time! Have a good week, folks!

    1. Yee Ling - Yeah, but too bad it's almost 12 hours apart from Brazil. The last few world cups were not that bad. We can watch earlier games before bedtime.

  10. "...bedridden for 2 days..." They say it is bad to be never sick, no immunity and once attacked, it would be extra serious. Two years ago? Thought I always see you saying you're unwell? Despite all that exercise and healthy eating? Must be all that eating out - homecooked food is the best.

    1. STP - got some small bouts of common colds but not serious. Usually, well recovered in a day or two unlike this big one which took a while.

    1. Merryn - I also asked the doc. He said as long as no fever, it's ok to take vaccine. It's good you get vaccinated too since you need to take care of two kids.
