I like pretty things

It's amazing how a shower and shaving your armpits can make you feel human again!

i'm alive!! hahahah.



coop me in a dark room for 2 days will you. well i'm out. and I WILL DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE. I will drink it all up!!

Well. I'm still coughing up a storm. But at least my spirit is awake again. I had to go to work for a bit, which stressed me out and gave me a nosebleed.

But overall, I am starting to get better.

oooOoo I'm lowwww again. feed me some congee.

it probably doesn't help that i barely eat.

so my mind (not noticing that body is sick) as it approaches mealtime starts to pleasantly fantasize about what to eat. yesterday for lunch it was like .. yes, thai food at thai kitchen. yum yum.
andy picked me up, took us there. and we both ended up picking at our food. i remember ordering the same dish before and finishing it.

then dinner yesterday, i really really wanted porridge. dudes. that what we asians feed each other when we're sick. porridge (also known as congee) sometimes with delicious thousand year egg and fried roll thingies and yum pork stuff.
when i was sick i also got fed black chicken. it's chicken with black skin. i see it at MT but it's really expensive and i'm not sure how to prepare it.

anyways. so i called dinho and stuff, and they either didn't have congee or only serve it at weekends.

so i ended up cooking chicken and garlic. but i put three giant cloves in my desire for healthliness, which resulted in me hating the dish. i think it was because the garlic was still young. and organic.
so i ordered chinese food from sun hing. of course by the time it arrived i had no desire for it.

and to top it off when i tried to sleep i got neauseus and threw up.

then today for lunch i kept hovering around the cafeteria but couldn't decide what to eat. ended up with a yogurt.
my lead engineer gave me an onion ring probably because he didn't want his valued team member to die on him before the project is complete.

i tried eating some leftovers in the fridge, but the food scratched my throat and makes me cough. and i'm hungry and sad.

what i really want is chicken porridge.

so andy stopped by to get me to eat, and we went to the mini-chinatown, cos i figured i could buy some ingredients and attempt to make porridge myself. we stopped by at TJ Noodle House.. and i was listlessly looking at the menu when andy said: "hey, they've porridge".
and sure enough. they had 3 types of porridges. i ordered one, had no trouble eating it. and also ordered another one for tomorrow.

i'm not going to starve to death!

it's amazing how when you're sick your body has cravings, and it's usually for a pretty good reason. porridge was nice, warm, bland, easy to digest, yummy, and comfort food to me.
