Medicine man .......

Do you carried medicines for some of your basic problems to work ? Well, of course if you have a condition, then you have no choice but to carry your meds around with you. However, for basic problems which could strike you on a bad day like common cold, gastric pain, headache, diarrhea and etc, do you just put one or two tablets in your bag ?

Well, I do carry meds for my basic problems in a small bag and put it in my notebook backpack. Well, my working place is far from my home as well as I crossed the causeway very often and not forgetting I also go around for meetings. Thus, having something to 'tahan' when I am not well can be a good relief. Anyway, I only carried those that I usually needed.  I also included some useful leftover meds from my last visits to the doc like non-drowsy flu pills to pull through the day.  One of my colleagues just teased me today that I am like a walking pharmacy ... hahaha.. as I pass some meds to my other colleague who was having a gastric pain. And lately, I included a small tube of heat rub for my muscles just in case I needed it before a run. :)

Oh.. Friday is polling day in Singapore and yeah...it's a holiday. For the rest of us who are not citizens and not eligible to vote, it will be a long weekend. I remember I just patronised Lavender Bistro in jb last Sunday and I feel like going there again , at least for coffee and cakes.


Teriyaki Chicken Rice for my kids

Nasi lemak for my wifey

I had a ham and cheese ciabatta which is my favourite. 

And not forgetting my cuppa of Americano.
Have a good weekend and consider carrying a little common meds in your bag, it can be handy! :)

  4. I hope you carry your meds wherever you go, don't leave it in the car. They always tell you on the box - STORE AT A DRY COOL PLACE. Even drinking water in plastic bottles must not be left in the car. The heat will cause some reactions.

    Nope, the egg in your missus' nasi lemak is definitely not done the way I would love it.

  6. I think it is good to carry medication in case of emergencies. But I don't do that. So when I have a bad headache, I have to run out to the pharmacy to buy.

  7. hmmm, I don't have the habit to bring along medicines with me.. not even when I go travel, haha!! I think I'm more a responsive person in this case than a preventive person.. I'll just go buy when I need medicines..

    1. SK - I used to that too but finds it too troublesome especially when you are not well.

  8. but I think it's good that you keep some common ones with you all the time, we never know when we will need them.. especially if we go travel to other places, a medicine box can become handy.. but one thing, make sure you trace the expiry dates and dispose those that have already expired..

    1. Yeah, that's why I always keep the side of the medication pack with the expiry date prints intact instead of tearing it away.

  13. I don't carry any at all.

    And I don't share my meds with others. In case they have allergic reactions to it.

  16. Oh my goodness! Where has my comment gone? It is missing!
    I mentioned that I have to carry migraine tablets everywhere now.
    I had bad experience when I was in Taipei many years ago and I
    could not buy any migraine tablets there over the pharmacy counters.
    I had to see a doctor instead and it was killing my head!
    Now I have them ready in my wallet, cars, office, home and all the luggage! So kiasu!
