Sore throat

If you have a sore throat, get ready for colds or the flu. After reading one of those health tips and handy tricks books 2 years ago, I noticed that each and every time my sore throat gets better (with or without Strepsils), I either get colds or the flu. o_O The book didn't explain about how sore throat and colds/flu go hand in hand in tormenting my day. Crap, my nose is now leaking like tap water, my eyes is watering and I'm sneezing rapidly. I command you to be gone forever, evil virus!

Last night I managed to invite roughly 80 new Malaysian members at Bookcrossing.com to the Yahoo! group! It was a month ago since I last invited the new-comers. Serves the procrastinator right! Eheheh... -_- I was planning to make inviting members a weekly routine but it gradually turned into a bi-weekly tri-weekly monthly affair. Too bad there's no mass-PMing function. That'll motivate me to invite more frequently.. =P

I'm also a bit disappointed at first for not getting mentioned in an article at The Star's Youth2 section... But then I'd also rather let this blog be semi-conspicuous, I wouldn't want any of my school's teachers or even heck, the headmaster to be reading this blog!

Oh well, C'est la Vie...

Heh - I sort of control who reads my blog: my bro, cousin, friends. Like you, I defintely hope that my lecturers don't know (and read) mine either. Which is why I've stopped mentioning school names and peoples' names if possible.

Lucky for me, my parents aren't really IT-literate, so I'm safe AFAIK.

Heh, I hope my boss doesn't find his way to my blog! That's why I don't put my full name in it - he can't google me then... hee...

lol, hot warm liquids like hot chocolate or chicken soup will do nicely for colds like these. And remember to rest a lot by jamming your butt in front of your computer with a pillow and blanket. =)

Good thing my LJ is Friends-Only. ^_^ No chances of school/classmates/real life friends reading it, though if they do I'll freak out. I mention too many real life people in there.

SJ: There's only a slight possibility that someone in my school is reading my blog. So I'm safe at the moment. =)

Coolgal: If your boss had been reading your blog for a long time, he might notice the references and possibly be gathering evidence!

KA: That's only temporarily relief. I'd rather take an asam-boi or 2... hehehe...

GC: Thanks for the advice, after the sore throat it became a full-blown (no pun intended) cold. Anyway, I think it's almost completely gone! =)

Tomatoinc: I'm not scared that the school will take action against me, but I'm scared that I might offend the teacher. They might not look at me the same way again...

It's against school rules write to newspapers because you might give your school a bad name. Posting your blog URL with comments about your school might get you busted. =)

I thought the blog article was for Star Education not Youth2. Or maybe it's another blog article.

Nicole,

I don't give a rat's ass about what the school thinks. The school doesn't completely own your life you know, which brings me to blogging another entry in a short while about the school's jurisdiction on students and where to draw the line.

The previous article appeared in The Star's Education section, this time it was in Youth2, geddit? =)
