Here We Go Again

1234

The past few months was quite busy. My mom visited me for almost a month and I tried my best to take her around the country as much as I can. She enjoyed the whole stay, she was able to cook for me too! And I tried again the dune bashing this time in Al Ain. It was really good and the money was well worth it.

This year will be another year to be busy. Another JCI will happen before the year ends.

Fighting! ^^

This was the once in a while gathering for the department. A night of fun, filling our stomach while enjoying each other’s cuisines. It was a night to get drunk though I don’t drink at all. haha!

Happy New Year and definitely I’ll be in and out of the social media for this year. Work, yes! It’s another year for JCIA and it’ll be a lot of pressure this time. Good luck. I’ll do my best. Fighting!

Rainy Days

It’s been raining like crazy the past few days and also today. Thankfully I’m off and one of the reason I’m lazy to get out of the house. haha! I realized that after some years of staying abroad, you get lazy to go out. All I want to do is to rest. Most probably the pressure and the stress at work is too much these days.

So last Tuesday I was in Abu Dhabi and I’m glad Doctor V had some government work to do, I decided to take an off too and do some of my paper works. But the rain stopped me from going very early, the bus left when I arrived at the station no breakfast and damn, too much traffic jam on my way.

I finished on that day too and had decided to visit my cousin and a friend. I had my lunch with them because I was literally hungry   and then helped my niece do some of her projects. Auntie duties. haha! And when I was about to go, I just got an emergency call so I have to cut my stay in the city short. It’s one of the most stressful days in our life. But everything is well now.

I was almost there in Grand  Mosque. Unfortunately it was raining and as I had said I was really hungry so I skipped going there. And thanks to my handy dandy book, I can refresh my mind with some work stuffs while on the go.

And I got this turtle from Maldives! Thanks to Dr V for this. haha!

So Ate Tere had invited me to go for lunch and we were just planning to go somewhere along the food court. But we saw Chili’s and they had 45 AED  lunch special so we grabbed the opportunity. But they had something more. Buy one take one on main course so we took the chance. We had fajitas, baby back ribs and bottomless strawberry and lemon iced tea. That made us totally full. It was worth it. haha! But here’s the thing. I only had few pieces of shrimp and I know I won’t get any allergies except if it’s a lobster or something else. I started to feel some paresthesia in my extremities and in my throat. I tried to take some rest but to no avail. I was having a severe allergy. Luckily I have some stock of medicines, I got myself a shot of Dexamethasone. It’s not a good thing though but better than nothing. Phew~

Lesson: Don’t eat much seafoods especially if it’s not fresh. haha!!

Well, these days are just too busy. I got some plans to go somewhere but the next day, I’m ditching as I prefer to just rest. And yes! As I mentioned in the previous post, it was Women’s day. There’s nothing much to celebrate at all but thanks for the bunch of chocolates. Calories! haha!

I hope to get some rest again. I’m not getting enough sleep these days though. T.T
