Happy Forty-Six!

It’s UAE’s 46th National Day! Everyone’s celebrating it and and we had a competition on which area was the best. Thanks for all the effort from our reception everyone appreciated it. We didn’t win though. But it’s alright.

And we’re having a looong weekend! I can’t wait to go to Dubai again. ^^

When This Thing Hit You Hard

I’ve been LSS with this song for a few days now and it just hits my heart. haha!

It’s just all about an unrequited love. It’s in Korean though. And aside from that, the aegyoness is just too much. haha!

Well, the song said:

“If I express it, I fear we’ll grow distant
Losing you is unthinkable
If I express it, I fear we’ll grow distant
Losing you is unthinkable”
I have this Oppa and we’ve been talking for some time, still!!!!

Quick Journey To Qasr Al Muwaiji

I finally got a chance to get myself a “me time,” instead of going to the mall to unwind, I decided to go to the nearest museum in my place. I thought it’s gotta be a ten minutes taxi ride but it turned out really near in my place. If only it’s not scorching hot, I might just walk. haha~

So I went to Qasr Al Muwaiji, it is the home of the Al Nahyan, the leaders of UAE, it’s a very interesting place though and well renovated. Qasr means a large house, a fortress. And guess what, the entrance is free! But as a courtesy, we have to maintain the cleanliness of the area. 🙂

Now let’s start the short journey.

A Not So Fortunate Event

Can I still run? These are the words that were on my mind the past few days.

When this is one of the things that makes me happy and active. So I had a terrible back pain for the past few days. I thought it can be managed by massage but no. I decided to see our neurosurgeon and asked his advice. He gave me a muscle relaxant, a pain reliever, and an MRI scan just to have a peace of mind. I was bargaining not to give me any medicine that might make me drowsy, but I have to give up. Taking the muscle relaxant for the first three days was not pleasant. I want to sleep the whole day. But the pain was not gone. My MRI Scan appointment has come. Unfortunately, that day was so busy and good thing I made an evening appointment. What they’re saying about the MRI Scan is true. If you’re claustrophobic, you can’t do it. And it’s quite loud, the technician will give you a headset. Some say there is music but for me, there’s none. Haha! Good thing, I don’t need to remove my braces as I only have to do the back.

Ok, the result. I thought it’s good as I can’t see anything much until the technician told me that there’s a little problem. The disc between the lumbar 5 and sacral 1 slipped and compressing the nerve. I did not expect that this is the cause of my constant back problem. I thought I was just tired. And it’s been a long time I did weights in the gym. I don’t do weights anymore.  I was sad. The first thing came to my mind, I can’t run anymore. I remember  I was planning to join a track and field group but now, it’s shattered.

As I talked to the doctor, informally, he suggested only a surgery if I don’t respond to the medicine. And I am planning to taper it off soon! I’m a bad patient. -.-

I’ll be in a total lifestyle modification. I might opt to brisk walking or swimming. I just can’t give up not working out. Thinking about it makes me cringe.

Well, let’s hope for the best though. ^^
