I'm in Singapore, which is lovely, hot and humid. Unfortunately i'm still ill. I think the stomach flu/food poisoning I got last weekend has pushed my stomach ulcer to rear it's ugly head. The continuous nausea is driving me nuts. I feel sick when I don't eat and even worse when I do eat. Which is so very sad as Singapore has great food, particularly great seafood which the thought off eating is making retch.
Singapore as most of you know is pretty much one huge shopping center. So I've done my best, but have come up pretty flat. Did buy a pretty dress and some shoes, and undies, as they do have M&S here. Can't fault old M&S for undies.
Tomorrow my training start, and I was soo exited about this training and I soo wish I was in a better shape for it, I know it's going to be very intense. Hence it would have been great if I was in tip top order. But I guess I'll just have to fake it till I make it.
This last week has been pretty rough as I've been ill and I quickly realized that I'm in a country where I have no family and no old friends. No old friends that you can call and go, -I'm sooo sick can you go and get me some soup, please. It was rather disturbing and embarrassing to have to ask A to help me get some food. Which to his credit he did, twice, which was very kind. It's always hard to ask for help, especially under these circumstances.
Well, I guess I'm just feeling a little sorry for myself today, so I'm gonna go and crash out in my humongous hotel bed. You could fit 8 people in there and have spare room.
