Bedridden Weekend

I was excited for this weekend. Finally, a weekend to rest and no pressure of going here and there to settle this and that chore. Oooo...I would've loved this weekend, if only this fever would just go away and come on a weekday perhaps?? I've been bedridden and on panadol and ponstan since yesterday afternoon. My head is killing me, my body is aching all over, and all I got from the lowsy doctor at Klinik Idzham was an RM24 bill and some stupid pills my sis could've supplied for free. Dr. Siti Nariman...the worst doctor in the world. Our conversation (if you could even call it that) went pretty much like this:

Me: Hi Doctor!
Doctor: (a nod)
Me: Saya demam. Terok sangat. Pening kepala. Sengal-sengal badan, Doctor. What's wrong with me?
Doctor: (silence, and places the thermometer on my forehead) Demam. Give me your arm. Nak check blood pressure. (pump pump pump...release....)
Me: How is it Doctor?
Doctor: Quite low. Ade batuk?Selsema?
Me: Takde. (duh)
Doctor: Ok.
Me: What if I have denggi?
Doctor: Come back in 5 days.

And that was it! How can you charge anyone, just by doing that. This took, what...5 minutes?? I think this doctor seriously needs to just stay home, get more kids, and retire early. She's definitely not someone I'd recommend. The only reason I went there anyway, was thinking that it might be another doctor's shift for treatment, since she usually takes on the morning shift. I guess I won't bother hoping again. That'l be the end of my dumping my money to that lousy clinic.

Women's Poem

I love this poem so much, I have to share. Hillarious, and definitely impossible...But its not wrong to hope and wish right..? One of Husna's forwarded emails that I love.

Before I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for a man, who's not a creep,
One who's handsome, smart and strong.
One who loves to listen long,
One who thinks before he speaks,
One who'll call, not wait for weeks.
I pray he's gainfully employed,
When I spend his cash, won't be annoyed.
Pulls out my chair and opens my door,
Massages my back and begs to do more.
Oh! Send me a man who'll make love to my mind,
Knows what to answer to "how big is my behind?"
I pray that this man will love me to no end,
And always be my very best friend.

Sale Sale Sale

Last weekend was something else. I was out with the family (solely as supporter, seeing that I was to tired to make anything) selling stuffs. My mom is an artist, seriously. She paints, and her latest endeavor involves crystals. And, as her talent and recognised specialty in art, she didn't merely take this up unprofessionally. She completed a whole course, and have been practising, and I've managed to sell a few at the office (thanks guys) and thanks of course to her talent. So she didn't take up the offer we received from a cousin lightly; to test the market in the open. My sisters also added some others stuffs for variety. This was all at Masjid Kampung Pandan, and best of all, the whole affair was for a good cause; as crowd puller for the Hal Ehwal Perdana, RTM1. Sale was not so bad, but we definitely had an fun.

Donuts Mania

One missing..hehe... I couldn't wait was Iceburg

I'm sure many of you guys are avid readers of nellie-the-elephant, and you should know that the lady obviously loves donuts. Just last week, I had the chance of sinking my teeth into the world famous Krispy Kreeme, and latest, just yesterday, I bought myself a half dozen of The Big Apple Donuts. Yummy! Best are - Iceberg, Chococino and definitely Glazed. Price-wise...very OK indeed, and very much competitive with the general public's favorite...Dunkin Donuts. I'd opt for Big Apple's though...anyday.
