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.

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

Hello February! As usual, it’s getting busy these days. I have to behave at work as much as possible. Just kidding. I think my astrology for this year is right. I’ll be having some challenges in my career and as usual, love life is still dry. haha! Sooo~ I was talking to this Danes guy for a week and still it didn’t work out for both of us. I don’t think it’s my fault that I’m quite reserved. There are some words he told me that made me think and he’s right that I must say to myself that I am perfect and there’s someone out there who wants me for who am I. Well I don’t even know how to flirt back. hell! haha!

So let’s go back to where we are. I was able to get myself an escape from the quiet life in Al Ain and went to Dubai and see The Miracle Garden for the second time. It’s unfortunate that I was the only single and just third wheeling. Everyone’s married! haha! So I gave them some work to take me photos.

Crazy New Year

Yaaaay~ Happy new year! The start of the year was very exhausting for me. The surgeries and emergencies took most of my weekend, even the eve of New Year.

So~ I just found out that it’s so great to go to the wet market to buy stuffs for cooking. You get fresh items in a cheaper price.

We get fresh fruits and fishes for the NYE.


Yaaaay~

And I’m still stuck with tons of work. We just had 5 hours of surgery plus spilled coffee after. I still survived!

My morning coffee grind. 🙂 Please excuse my super dry hands. I’ve been scrubbing for the whole week and lotion didn’t help.

Xoxo~
