Day 280 – exhilarating zumba monday

i wore my nike flyknits out today. Happy. High energy today! Was it because of good weekend’s sleep? Hahaha 🙂 mood swing towards good mood. Awesome.

Today’s zumba class was fun. Because my foot is in good condition. It wasnt too swollen and since i came back from hongkong, i can put some weight on it and not feel much pain. Butbut. During 2nd hour, my fking toe cramped for awhile. The 2nd toe. It felt like the sock was too tight suddenly. I dunno wtf is wrong. I drank a can of isotonic drink after the first hour though. Its not supposed to cramp me right?! Anyway, its been a long time since i can exert. Til now i still kinda feel like my toe is gonna cramp on me.

What i ate:

Breakfast: kfc porridge

Lunch: salad (romaine lettuce, roasted sesame dressing, chick peas, carrots and brocolli) , chocolate ji dan zai, shilin fried chicken and a can of isotonic drink

Dinner: none

while i am there, basically my restrictions didnt apply. I ate whatever. Just no prawns. But in the end, i accidentally ate prawns too, so i took aerius/ desloratadine. Twice. I didnt get any itch fest. My skin just turned all red and raised. 

I ate lots of egg waffles, egg tarts, boluobaos(buns with sweet crust?), rice rolls with charsiew…

Skin was very dry while i am there though. And i nosebleed afew times. 




Day 278 – past 9mths

Past few days i had been somewhat sick i guess. 

I slept SO much yesterday. I was totally sleepy yesterday at work and subsequently during class. I had to nap. The nap turned into overnight sleep. LOL. Came home at 4.30pm or so, and crashed into bed. Sleeping all the way til 12am then woke up unwillingly to shower, consume some entertainment and a biscuit, then back to bed. 

Skin remained quite dry after hongkong trip. Everyone is happy, tcm, parents, including me.

Day 275 – feverish

Well, its the first time in 9mths that i had a fever. No idea why. Yesterday i just came home from HK. Stomach was bloated and painful. But slept anyway cos i was f-tired. 

Took paracetamol / panadol and slept my afternoon away. Fever subsided. But stomach still had teeeny weeny bit of pain.

Day 267 – another concerned boss

Today, my hands were full of micropore tapes and plaster, as usual. Today the boss came in and i had him sign some docs. He saw my fingers and dugged around in his bag for a looong time. I thought hes looking for a pen but no, he finally dug out a small used tube of Dermovate. Aaahh steroids. I refused it of course. Like i will sacrifice my almost 9months of steroid withdrawl! He has psoriasis, as i understand from my cousin, so… Im kinda sure the dermatologist also gives this kinda steroid cream. 

My right palm feels terrible today. I think i rubbed and scratched my spots raw last night. Today its just dry tight and crackly. Sigh. Is it because i have been eating lors of mcd this and last week?!

What i ate today:

Breakfast: mcd sausage muffin and black coffee

Lunch: sumo salad’s romaine lettuce, chick peas, cucumber, carrots, rice vermicelli, bean sprouts and lemon juice dressing

Junks: mildly sweet oreo and sugar free barley and papaya and gelatin powder



Day 263 – a concerned stranger

i woke up in the middle of the night again to scratch my left leg AND my right ankle. Darn. Left leg was quite raw in the morning. I totally hate washing off the tissue in the morning. And showering in the evening. Totally hate water ~_~

I went out alittle late in the morning, i went to grab biscuits and oreos from the supermarket, my sausage muffin mcd breakfast, then took a bus to my workplace. So i sat on a 2 seater and a lady sat beside me. I was kinda sleepy today, so after looking out the bus window, i closed my eyes for a short nap and placed my plastered fingers on top of my bag. I was kinda surprised to find the lady staring at my fingers afew times when i opened my eyes. To be honest, i had the “wtf are you staring at? …. These are my battle scars, im comfortable all plastered up, like i give a dam even if you stare” . I ignored her and she continued to stare. 

When i got ready to alight, she suddenly asked me: 

Lady: “miss, the red patches on your hand, are they recent or?” 

Me: “No, i had them for a long time since young.” 
Lady: “Do you eat chicken? Cos i had some red patches and when i stop eating, they’re gone.” *proceeds to show me her nice and soft skin on arms/elbow which doesnt even have much blemishes!* where are you red patches or even dry skin, lady?!

Me: “Yes i eat. I tried not eating before, its worse” i think at this point, she had a surprised look and didnt know how to answer. 

*end of encounter*

I think i blogged about eating chicken before.. I DID quit eating chicken for a period of time and my skin was oozing worse! When i stop eating chicken, i hardly eat other proteins and the shortage probably compounded the problem. My friend jokingly said “the hormones and steroids in chickens probably suppressed/controlled your eczema and made it better” lmao. 

Then when i was in office, my coworker asked what happened to my skin. Wtf. To be honest, i was there for afew months already and my fingers were ALWAYS and daily full of bandages, plasters n micropore tapes. Im tired and lazy to explain myself. 

Here is a pic of my hands. They arent too bad i think! 

What i ate today:

Breakfast: mcd sausage muffin

Lunch: salad (chicken with pepper, romaine lettuce, carrot, chickpeas, small cucumbers, roasted sesame dressing)

Others: oreo golden biscuits x3, papaya, 

Dinner: none


Day 261/262 – spicy cheat

today. Day 262. I woke up in the middle of the night scratching my left leg…  Finally could not take it, sat up and re-wrapped my leg before i could sleep properly. In the morning, the calf was slightly red from all the scratching… I guess it MUST be the japanese curry i ate the night before -_-

Also on day 261, i soaked in applecider, tea tree oil and pressed 3 small cloves of garlic into it. This time i left the garlic for 15mins before dumping it into the pail. I was happy to find a green sprout in the french garlic! Goes to show green sprout garlics with REAL allicilin does exist in Singapore! 

 Was the itch from the garlic soak bacteria die off or the curry? Hmmm. I notice my right arm is getting more red lesions. And my neck has some too. 

Gah. My nose has been pretty blocked. The haze seems to be clearing up, i caught peeks of the blue sky that has eluded us for awhile. And it felt so cold today.

Day 261:

Breakfast: kfc original twister(tomato, scrambled egg, mayo?, toasted wrap) totally yums.

Lunch: isetan foodcourt’s japanese curry katsudon with sips of oolong tea and miso soup

Others: 2 toastbox egg tarts?

Day 262:

Breakfast: kfc porridge

Lunch: mcd’s grilled chicken wrap (tomato, lettuce? ) with fries and lipton tea

Others: cheese biscuit

Dinner: chicken bits, radish soup with a dash of tumeric 


Iherb loot

Just received these from the mail! The vitamin D drops are omfg expensive. Also i forgot to take a pic with the Now organic tea tree oil. The gelatin is a surprisingly big tin. 

Tried the Great Lakes Gelatin hydrolysate earlier. The instruction says to take 2 table spoons twice a day. But i shall just start slow. I actually didnt know how to get the powder out and had to google some youtube videos to see how other people poured the powder out. So they actually pour it out slowly thru the round hole. Darn. I hate that theres no lid on it. 

About the taste: it actually dissolves quite well in room temp water and theres no obvious beefy taste. And the dissolved liquid is clear as well!
