Despite the fact that I have N times of scoping done, I still feel nausea after today's scoping, I really hated it when that anesthetic actually flow to my throat, leaving a super bitter aftertaste and causing all the discomfort. Immediately after my session with the doctor, I ran to the washroom to spit out the anesthetic and somehow vomited with some acid. Today's doctor confirmed that main culprit which caused my throat discomfort is acid reflux and that my throat is still slightly swollen. A new set of stronger medicine is changed for me, and due to my company's claimable medical expenses has exceeded since after my A&E appointment & first post treatment, now all expenses are on me only... This adds on to my "wound" as per tablet costs me $2.80 and a week's supply is $19.90. I wonder when will this end, I'm tired of going back to the CGH clinic with minimal improvement to my condition and with additional bills...
I am not one who really believe in shopping therapy, however, today, I'm truly in the mood to be in a shopping therapy session and I sincerely feel that I need one. After some many things that have happened recently, be it personal or work, I needed to distress myself. After my medical appointment, I went shopping in orchard area, from Mango @ Liat Tower to Far East Plaza then to Muji @ Paragon, Ngee Ann City & last stop at Espirit in Centrepoint. I can't believe that I actually spent almost 5 hrs just shopping in that area. Damage done - $xxx!!! I bought myself a pair of Jeans from Mango, 2 tops at Far East Plaza, a sharpener for the watercolor pencils from Muji, and I pair of jeans, 1 crop pants & 3 pairs of socks from Espirit (you must be wondering why so many pair of socks, I needed to top up $5 to get the VIP and due to on going promo with discounts given using the Citibank credit card, I top up with 3 pairs of socks instead of original 1 pair of socks, so basically 2 pairs of socks are free) Basically all items are all discounted items, if not, I would not have spent so much. Ask if shopping therapy actually helps, I would say, not really... glad that I have add in some new items to my wardrobe however, when the bills come, it will be another issue.
Anyway, the happiest moment do not come from my shopping session, but rather an sms giving me a "special assignment", this is real exciting but also stressful. I'm not sure if I can help but am glad that I can be of some help. As for the details, I don't think it's appropriate to reveal unless with consent. Anyway, that's a full stop for now!

This time, had it not been Jac wanting to meet me to pass me her wedding banquet invitation card, she would not have known abt the incident too. As she know him too, and was asking how things going for us, I really have no wish to hide from them, coz, although deep in my heart, I hope for miracle to happen, however, I also know that this is almost impossible... They felt so heartache that I keep everything to myself, going through everything by myself... I thank "God" for giving me such loving friends.
Then as we were chit chatting, I was wondering how's T, the "silly & blur gal", whom I really dunno whether to call her innocent or simply too naived. I was shocked to hear that she has just given birth few months back and now, is an unwed single parent.
T, Jac, & me, the 3 of us, who are of the same age in our dept previously, are now facing totally different fate.
T, who has been in & out of relationships in search of true love, being made used of by those idiots guys, ended up in such a state. Haiz... Why is fate fooling around with her, and so cruel to her? Jac, who used to be in much love-hate relation to her distance relationship, is now, going to marry to another guy who is willing to commit. And me, whom, everyone thought, the most blissful one, & should be settling down soon, is having a broken relationship and back to square one...
A friend told me, everything happens for a reason. Whatever it is, I hope to know the reason and not being kept from it. Else, till the day I step into the coffin, I'm still unwilling to leave without the truth being told!

Then, just before I get to the entrance of N.Y.D.C. at the Hereen, I bumped into someone again, this time is, Marcus, the pilot! He and his gal fren were just sitting near the entrance, what a small world! We just has a short exchange of "hi" & he intro his friend to me, but due to the music too loud, I can't really catch his friend's name :P
Finally got seated and the rest of the gals are late, and sad to sad, Dajie can't make it last minute, we were all so "disappointed" or "lost"? Hmm... just can't find the correct word, my English vocabulary is simply "Pte Ltd"! Hope she can make it the next time round! We had a great time updating each other of recent updates or thoughts, and has a great indulgence in the yummy food. Here's some photos to tempt ya!
With the vouchers redeemed from my credit card bill, we saved $20 from the bill. Then, Dor suggested that we go for a more quiet place for chit chatting, and since, she too, got a $20 voucher from Coffee Club, we decided to proceed there, and then, we continue our guilty indulgence...
Time flies, before we know it, it's already amost 11p.m., although, we still have a lot more to catchup, we got to part as tomorrow is a working day...
Gals, thanks for your kind understanding to change the date to Thur, knowing that I has another gathering on Fri and that I had very much wanna join you gals....
MF is late so the 2 of us just went round "Central", looking for a food outlet to settle our dinner. Finally decided to settle for TCC, quite like the ambience, cozy corner for catch up with friends. I had a hard time deciding what to eat as TCC has several new dishes on board and no sure of the serving especially for those fusion style, wonder if they are worth the money & whether sufficient to fill my stomach. I ended up with this - Tofu Decker, The decker are formed by tofu & apple, the slices of grilled cucumber & carrots serve as garnish..
The serving seems little, however, surprisingly, with a glass of ice blended drink, this is more than enough to fill my stomach.
This is what MF & Robbinhood had, tried the fish from MF's plate, it's pretty tasty...After the dinner, as usual, we proceed to a drinking place, a place to relax and catching up. Great to hear that Robbinhood had succeeded in his proposal during last year end. Time just past without us realising, it was 2a.m. and we just have to bid goodbye till we meet again. Hope the next gathering will be receiving Robbinhood's wedding invitation card.
