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!!!)
