Doo bee doo~
Monday, September 29, 2008
Visited doctor again today. I talked my way into seeing doctor because the nurses stated patients with only serious cases are allowed to see the doctors. My cold case is not acceptable so I sounded my scenario very serious with the 'pain on my waist back and front and I'm just scared there's something with my kidney or bladder.' That was enough to convince her that my case is serious. The reason I was not allowed to visit because there were many patients and too little doctors. But there were not many patients as what the nurse claimed!

So the doctor said the pain was aggravated by the cough. Yea... I cough very extreme... where you could hear my organs are coming out from my mouth. And also it's part of a cold viral effect where my waist and back area would be aching according to the doctor la. It should go away but if the pain still persist for some time then I have to return to the clinic to get a blood test for dengue fever.

And then later ... I went to have ice cream dessert in pavilion. HAHA...

Edit: I totally forgotten to write that ... I dreamed of Jun Matsumoto this morning. It was a nonsense dream since I don't like Jun and why did I dream of him?! What were we doing? We were karaoke-ing. Who is Jun Matsumoto? Please visit Katrina's blog and the guy you are greeted with is Jun. Give me la Tegoshi Yuya or Eiji Wentz!

Digging gold~
Sunday, September 28, 2008
It's actually me gonna dig someone's eye and ears. I'm visiting the doctor again tomorrow morning because the medicine I was prescribed is not working and my flu and cough have worsened depsite cutting back on certain food. Mucus was stuffed in my eardrums even before I indulged in extreme mocha drink from Sans Francisco. I have also been coughing with phlegm. But my ultimate concern is the dull pain in my right waist area which later spread to my left. And then later spread to my backbone area. I'm not supposed to feel any backache given in I just visited my chiropractor after my birthday; that adjustment I had will last me for 3 months before I feel the extreme discomfort on my back. With this ache, I can't really bend down like to pick a pen. My back is really feeling sore as I'm typing this entry. Well... my friend said I'm paranoid about all these symptoms but hey that's because my mother and sister share a lot of medical information wth me and I also read a lot on the symptoms. And what is so paranoid about thinking about the pain when the pain is for real! A doctor had told my mum that the pain I was complaining was my hallucination. Yea right... but it doesn't fit my present situation when I could feel the pain in front and behind my waist. Do you know that feeling pain below the waist indicate that there could be something wrong with the pelvic organs?

Ok ... I'm going to make the doctor feels guilty for not paying enough attention to me on my last visit.

Fire Prevention
Friday, September 26, 2008
This is not flaming fire prevention. I'm referring to the fire in the pocket once you overspend. I would just like to share a savings tip while waiting for the flu medicine taking effect on me.

I actually knew this method long time ago but never really enforced it. >.< And so when I attended T. Harv Eker's seminar early mid year, I decided to do it no matter what. It's simple. You just need jars and money. Eker gathers 7 jars but I think it's just too many and if you are new to this method... 7 jars is scary!! These 7 jars have different purposes but I only adopt 3 purposes and modify on my own.

I started out with 2 jars: one for my Personal Financial Freedom, which means whatever money I collected here will go into my Fixed Deposit no matter what; and the other is to pay utility bills. So how do you feed these jars? Simple... I just check out my wallet for loose change and feed those jars whatever amount I like. So the first month of enforcement, I managed to save above RM 50 for my first jar and second jar. Seeing how the money grow, I got another jar and this jar is for my internet bills. So again ... I feed this jar with loose change but I put a minimum for this jar because I need to meet a certain amount at the end of the month. So it's not the end of the month yet and I'm hitting my target even before the end of the month. And not forgetting I have also been feeding my other 2 jars.

I calculated that by just having these 3 jars, I could save around RM200 a month from just spending on useless stuff. Eh not bad right? And the best part is I already have enough money to pay my bills on time. And there's always extra to carry forward in those jars!

I introduced this jar thingy to my mother when she was worried not having enough of money to pay the newspaper delivery guy. And now we don't have to worry because the piggy bank now has an amount to pay for another month without any of the family members contributing to the jar.

Hmm.. I just started a fourth jar. That is to pay off my debts. And I can't wait to see the money in there grows! Grow!!! Oooh ... I don't need Aladdin's djinn.

Sick-o- Senorita
Thursday, September 25, 2008
I visited the doctor again today. A male doctor attended to me. I told him I contracted sore throat, flu and fever while chatting with a friend over the weekend [Yea the friend is no stranger... he is Dr. Bernard]. You know what the male doctor asked me? "Why? You busy kissing ah?" I replied "Have you kiss kiss these few days also?" He laughed until he doesn't remember his gender because his answer to my question "No no... I'm such a good girl... eh eh eh ... no no .. I'm a good boy." My brows twitched.

Good news is my test results are all negative, so I have no whatsoever illness I thought I have. Yay! But I forgotten to tell doctor that I feel pain in the stomach area whenever I bend down to pick up things...

Second good news is I got selected to be a participant for JUST International Inter-civilisational Youth Engagement Programme 2008 by just submitting an essay not less 300 words. Woohoo~

For the moment, I need to get to sleep due to the effect of the flu pill.

Good night.
