Fever!!!!

Dear Mr Blog,

Please forgive me for not being able to update my entry more regularly. It was rather unfortunate really as I was down with a rather severe case of a head cold (the doctor said it was flu. Ada different ke?) combined with a delirious fever since last Tuesday. I hate it when I fall sick. Because I am a bad sick person. I whine endlessly. And I get on everybody’s nerves especially the lady of my heart. But I can’t help it. It has always been like that since I was small.
So I spent practically the whole of last week in bed, nursing my ruthless headache. I tried to go to work on Thursday, but it only made my fever worse and I was again down until yesterday, Sunday. It was boring, I tell you. It was either watching Astro, surfing the Net (damn difficult considering that my brain wasn't working properly) or reading.
However, I managed to do all of the above sporadically. And I would like to note that due to lack of reading materials available at hand, I finished off my daughters’ Meg Cabot’s Princess Diaries number 5 and 6 in a day. Now I’m on the seventh book. Oh My God!
Anyway, I was still feeling crappy this morning when I went back to the office (definitely due to Monday blues plus the cold that refuse to just go away).
I walked up to my desk and there was a fax invitation on my keyboard staring at me.
The invitation was from a Dewan Perniagaan Melayu Malaysia (Malays Chambers of Commerce, I presume) inviting me to attend a perhimpunan this coming Thursday at the Putrajaya Convention Centre. It also stated (in bold somemore):

Tujuan: Untuk Menyatakan Sokongan Kepada Perdana Menteri YAB Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi.

Aaaargh! Now, I’m sick again! Plus Hypertension! Aaaaarghhhh!Aaaarghhh!!!!!

Yours Sincerely,
Bapak Yang Sakit Balik!
(P.S: Went to see the doctor again, he gave me another day's medical leave -- but not for today but rather on Thursday!!!)

Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries 5, 6 and 7?!! CUTE! Hahaha!

Get well soon...but, I suspect the fever will still be around until 8 March...

There'll be a lot of people out there who'll make you feel sick and nauseous running to the GE. Should get your doc to give you MC till then, mate ;)

hehehehehe...the last bit was a real killer, pak mior.

but i tell you this, we do have a couple of things very much in common. whenever i fall sick, i'll whine. thats one. 2ndly, whenever i'm down, the first person i'd look for is my pinky (gf). used to be my mom when i was a kid but nowadays nampak buruk bebenor la pulak kalo mcm tu.

mintak kak yan sapu2 kan minyak angin sikit kat kepala...hehehe...

but seriously, get well soon, brother.

Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries? Boy...you must be really sick then! Hehehe...

Take a good rest, drink lots of water...jaga makan tu. Cakap kat Kak Yan, jangan masak sedap2 this week. Look at the bright side, mana tahu boleh la slim sikit :-)

Get well soon!

Zabs said...

Salam Mior,
Semoga anda sembuh lepas Thursday. alau tidak MC tak boleh guna pulak. Saya tak register dengan man-mana Dewan pun, Kamus Dewan adalah. Takda jemputanlah, bagus juga.

Neeza Shahril said...

rata-rata blog yang neeza visit, ramai orang sakit.. cough and cold.. fever.. flu, including myself la pak mior. rasanya neeza ni tak renti dengan sakit.. dugaan besar ni.. untuk pak mior, semoga cepat sembuh :)

cakapaje said...

Salam Pak Mior,

Alolo...siannya memba aku sorang ni, sakit dia. Gi rehat bebaik...fever or flu, both need lots of rest and sleep.

But, heran gak ye, sakit pun ada boleh 'sick leave' ke? I mean, Tuesday and Wednesday dia reda, tetiba dah foresee Thursday dia datang balik kerja! Terra betul sakit tu! :)

Fauziah Ismail said...

Salam Mior
Demam pilihanraya ke? :)
I've been in and out of the office clinic the past one week that I've told the doctor, "we've got to stop meeting like this!" and he agrees. :) But not going on a date with him either!
Take care, bro!

Mior Azhar said...

Shana,
Thanks... and the thing is I kind of like Princess Diaries. Something wrong with me....

Kerp Bro,
My mother used to say, orang lelaki kalau sakit masyaallah. Sikit jer dah merengek. Orang pompuan lagi ler teruk kena menanggung sakit beranak lagi.... betul jugak kan?

Mior Azhar said...

Lyn,
Memang pun.... sampai sekarang tak kebah2 jugak. Masuk office duk dlm air cond .. lagi-lagi lah selsema and batuk... tapi yang syoknya my boss pun dah kena demam jugak... sudah dua hari tak masuk office.

Mior Azhar said...

Wan,
Party? My wife kata dia nak ikut boleh? Nanti I call you on Friday night, k?

Mior Azhar said...

Pak Zabs,
Thanks. Its the virus going around in the ofice. One after another kami tumbang.

Neeza,
Ya dugaan. Sebenarnya ini baru sikit. Kata orang sakit ibarat pencuci dosa. Kalau begitu alhamdulillah. Semoga anda juga cepat sembuh... tapi kat sana pasti panas senang ler nak demam,kan?

Mior Azhar said...

Salam Shah:
There's no waaaay Im going for that perhimpunan. For obvious reason... semalam pun dah angin tengok Berita Harian bila dia kata issue on Maths and Science taught in English akan dikaji semula. Mangkuk ayun betul... suddenly nak memartabatkan BM pulak. How very timely. In the meantime my daughter suffers trying to learn Science in English. Oh whatever...

Mior Azhar said...

Fauziah,
Haaaa demam pilihanraya, betul tu... And you take care too, lots and lots of work awaiting tu

idham said...

idham

Mior Azhar said...

Pak Payne,
The fever went up two-fold after I received the invitation. Hehehhe. Anyway, getting better now but still the cold lingers on

tokasid said...

Salam Pak Mior:

Kesian dengor pak mior tak sehat, tapi itu lah...sakit ni datang tak berjemput, dihalau idak le pilak dia nak balik.

Actually sekarang ni memang tengah musim demam sebab cuaca yang panas terik. Selalunya Mac-April( bila daun getah mula kuning dan coklat serta nak gugur) tapi tahun ni awal sikit. satu lagi bila musim deroyan seba memang masa deroyan nak masak seringnya cuaca akan panas.

Wuih...dapat kad jemputan iye?
( Kome keney idak Dr Junaidi Wahab MP Batu Pahat? Dia dulu 3rd college . Bini die pun 3rd college jugak. dengir kabor die kena drop dari jadi calon kali ni...idak le teman tau kenape. Kalau dah official baru le teman nak telipon die)

elviza said...

damn cute lah this entry.

But honestly, if I sight an invitation like that on my desk, I ll just get sicker!

Take it easy bro... get well soon

Mior Azhar said...

Doc,
Yaa ingat Dr Junaidy...but I doubt he remembered.... lain2 geng masa tu...

Mior Azhar said...

Elviza,
Thanks Sis. The cold is very persisent lar this time around.
