Health Bites – H1N1

H1N1 flu virus is invading the community. It is so scary. even if the people is asymptomatic. Who knows whether they do have or carry that virus? it is like a mystery bomb. Now, it is escalating and infecting more and more people.


treatment is expensive as more labor and manpower is needed at particular area to handle a large number of patients who suspected to have that virus or carrying that virus.
More materials are needed to prevent the staff from getting infected. Masks, gown, gloves, disinfectant. I thought of buying disinfectant from the supermarket as it had run out.

we need to protect ourselves. I guess I may need to go to the supermarket to buy more food supplies such as biscuits, noodles, rice, milk, cereal, bread. At least a few days supplies if necessary. we may never know what will happen to us. I do not like the feeling of staying in hospital. Bills are so expensive. Hope it will get better in the future and no community transmission will occur here.

that’s all folks!

14 June 2009

the day started with a bad mood.

Someone said she forbid me to help out as a volunteer, especially those events which require people to wake up during wee hours of the night and crawl out of bed and go to the pick up point and wait for shuttle bus to go to the event venue. She even scolded me when she crawled out of her bed. Just could not know why she treated me the same as someone. Sometimes, she can use a hanger or cane to hit me.

I Woke up later than expected time. So I had to take taxi to bedok. I was glad that I did not spend more than $10 on taxi fare. too bad my area do not have mrt and there was not much ppl living in my area.

my eye sight was blurred when I was heading to my pri school to flag for taxi as it was getting late. Did not wear my spectacles for astigmatism.
I Managed to reach the waiting venue before time and boarded the bus to changi exhibition centre. It was big and so ulu from the bus stop. Luckily there’s a 2-way bus fetching people to the destinated pick-up points.
I Did not take much photos of the changi exhibition centre and the finishing point of the bike race.
I Did not expect the finish point was so far away from the volunteer area and the main stage. Was so hot and my skin was burning that day. I tried to spray so many layers of sunblock on my limbs, neck and face.
I Even tried sticker tatoo on my right arm. i chose to stay in the tent than go out and cheer for other racers. Please do not say that I am lazy. By choosing to stay in the tent, I can listen to many english pop hits (except Paris Hilton’s Stars are blind) and rest at the same time.

I was dehydrating and luckily I did not take my medication and replenish my water supply. If not, I will be dehydrated and I may faint at the venue. People may thought that it was so exhaggerating but I really do not like the feeling of taking medication to control my condition.

I do enjoy helping in sports events. It gave me the exposure on the organising events and passion for sports and help out in even more sports events if i do have the free time. now I need to make the effort to plan things properly. just like the 7-habits. Plan in advance so that I can relax and enjoy the things I do enjoy!

That’s all folks.
