    hey bev, go see a doc. our hot & humid weather is not helping. this time of the year, virus is all around so all the more you need to stay indoors & get well. take care!

        I got the bug alright but it was not a bad streak. I just get it on & off. Today is supposedly my last day on the damn course of antibiotics. I want a fun filled Xmas so the virus better leave me soon. :/

        I hope Clarinase wards away the virus in you completely & soon!

            I am OK. In fact I have been hitting the gym as if my body is well. I don’t like antibiotics either. :/

            You get well soon! *sending lots of healthy vibes your way*

        Re: Random Storms?

        that’s right. correct me if i’m wrong, but i’ve been told the tropics has four summers: dry (as in no rain, super humid), wet (rainy and super humid), dry windy (no rain, less humid), and wet windy (rainy, less humid). ok, that almost hardly makes any sense. anyhow, i was there only during the drier summer season, e.g. late july thru mid-november. believe me, the storms were random. the last time i got caught in the rain wearing a tanktop and sandals was in san diego, ca on an old spring day years ago. hasn’t happened again since.

    I love the Chey Tow Kway, Chwee Kway and Beef Hor Fun at Ghim Moh hawker centre. Have you ever tried the Chey Tow Kway (Fried Carrot Cake) at Newton hawker centre? There is only one stall there that sells delish Chey Tow Kway and it is AH HENG FRIED CARROT CAKE stall. I haven’t been there now that they have been relocated to another place opposite AutoBahn.
