Food Poisoning

Food poisoning is a terrible thing to happen to you. I woke up in the middle of the night, needing to rush to the toilet and puke. I thought it only happened to me until Yan Leng messaged me in the morning to ask me if I'm ok as she and Julianne are vomitting and having diarrhoea. More and more people saying that they are suffering from food poisoning.

We are very sure that we got food poisoning from the Nottingham Malaysian Society Raya Open House. Oh dear... how can a society with half of its members studying medicine actually serve food that is contaminated? Maybe should ask for compensation. Apparently this happened a couple of years ago as well..

Two classes of Humans??

Just came across this article from BBC UK: Human species 'may split in two'. Imagine that.. According to the article, in 100,000 years' time, Homo sapiens would evolve and split into two different classes. A direct quote from the article: "The descendants of the genetic upper class would be tall, slim, healthy, attractive, intelligent, and creative and a far cry from the "underclass" humans who would have evolved into dim-witted, ugly, squat goblin-like creatures."

Ok.. I'll leave it here. Don't want to turn it into a research blog where I have to make sure I did not plagiarise anything... So.. read the article here.

Wonder which class of human would i fall into in 100,000 years' time....

My first visit to the GP

I went to the Cripps Health Centre to make an appointment to see the GP just now. I was really lucky as someone just cancelled on their 10am appointment and they could fit me in for that. I didn't even have to wait a very long time before the doctor could see me.

Apparently, i have eczema again. Around my eyes. It wasn't just caused by the weather but just the flaring up of good ol' skin disease. Had to make another appointment to see Dr Gibbs next week at 11.30... hopefully i remember the time.

My first prescription: Cetirizine and Hydrocortisone Cream 0.5%

Cost me 13.70 pounds for that two items.. EXPENSIVE!!!! good thing the GP visit cost nothing..

Hopefully the HC cream would help my skin.. it's very very irritating as it is very very itchy.. haha..

Should have bought more medicines from back home and brought them here with me so don't need to pay so much for medicines.

I finally went cycling after a long time. And my first time cycling "long" distance and sometimes on the main road. It's a bit scary cycling on the road when you can feel and see all the cars passing you by. I borrowed a bicycle from my friend and went with Pui San to Beeston. The first time we went yesterday, my leg muscles were protesting every bi of the way. My butt was complaining as well. The seat was quite hard and the bicycle was quite high as well. I can still read the ground but it was quite uncomfortable. Don't know why people here ride bicycles which are so high. Couldn't even walk properly after getting down from the bike.

Thinking that it was so convenient with bicycles, Pui San and I started to buy groceries for the house. Vegetables and meat. I even bought bread which were 2 for 1.50. Oh dear.. it was such a hassle trying to get back. The baskets were so full! We put some stuff into our backpacks and still the baskets were overflowing. It was the same for today. We went there to find a baking pan and came back, since it's market day, with more vegetables and 2 packs of eggs.

At Beeston today, while waiting for Pui San to look in Wilkinson's for her baking pan, i saw this group of kids (maybe around 9-10 years old) SMOKING!!! OMG.. what is the world coming to? 9 year olds smoking?? Anyway, i just ignored them and left.. ahha..

anyway.. think i'm coming down with a cold.. Sore throat, feeling tired all the time. oh dear...
