Yeah.. you got that right. Poor me right? Of all days to be sick. I have to be sick when everybody is tasting yummy delicious food.
I'm a weak girl I know. I was up and running about a few days before the CNY going to Malacca and stuff to visit my boyfriend. We went shopping, walked under the sun and sat in the old bus inhaling the fresh smelling fumes of the lovely cars on the road.
Didn't have enough sleep so lo and behold, the next day I was down with a sore throat.
And a sore throat to me is the beginning of all evil.
On the first day of CNY, I had a big gigantic red pimple on my right cheek. Talk about dressing red for the New Year.
Not to boast of anything but I always have very nice smooth complexion. But after having chicken pox not to long ago, my smooth complexion has become almost like the moon. With craters and big holes.
Ok.. Not that bad.. It has improved a lot since January. But to have a large pimple of the FIRST day of CNY!!!
Luckily after my chicken pox I have discovered the miracles of foundation and concealer. So right before I went out I piled my face with layers and layers of make-up making me look like those Chinese opera singers.
You know those super white ladies with red lips.
I almost looked like one of those.
Luckily I still managed to get some Ang Pau.
I had flu too on that day. What is the worst thing to have on CNY?
Coz you can't taste anything!!! >.<
And for some weird reason, my flu wasn't those watery watery kind where you have to blow your nose like every second. Filling up all the dustbins in the house within minutes.
No.. Mine was super thick. I couldn't get anything out! I can make the blowing sound and blow my nose super hard.
But nothing came out.
So the whole day my family had to endure the sounds of me blowing my nose and when they looked at me, I wasn't holding any tissue or covering my nose.
Why do I try and blow my nose if nothing comes out?
Well.. I realised that whenever I do that, I will get a tinge of how the food I'm tasting is like. Just for the split second.
So you'll see me keep blowing my nose when I'm eating.
I'm totally grossing you out right?
I'm feeling much better now though. I'm just down with a cough now. With super thick yellowish phelm.
Happy Chinese New Year everyone.
