Thursday 13th May at 6pm

Friends thought I was brutally abused by hospital crew.

Healthy Living

Please excuse me. I am trying to segregate my thoughts into sections to make it easier to report on.

Ceasing Antibiotic

I was fast asleep after a long day battling oesophagitis. Yes! I have had bouts of short-lived but constant throbbing pain on my chest. This is part of the side effects of the antibiotic I was prescribed. What's more, I almost always swallow this tablet with nurofen which has further aggravated the condition. I know I shouldn't have combined them into a single dosing regimen, but ever since the anasthetic effect went off, the soreness on my gum was just too unbearable. I can barely open my mouth! Well, after all these, I now learn to take clindamycin with a full glass of water whenever possible, or even better, have something to eat beforehand. Even so, the burning sensation was so intense that it eventually left me with no choice but to cease taking it immediately.

Diet

Despite antibiotic cessation, I am still progressing quite steadily. The bottom right cheek is about 80-90% recovered. My gum and teeth are starting to work more coherently lately. So, I can chew my food slightly. Big applause but I am still implementing a soft diet just in case the stitches fall apart again. I have also been alternating between rice porridge and broth for variations. And I never missed out having mashed banana every morning too!

Health issues

While wisdom teeth extraction has tormented me slightly, the many things that have been running through my mind lately mostly relate to someone else's health. Alex is one for sure. His back is playing up again. I am suspecting a coccyxdynia, but the doctor seems to think otherwise. We have done the lot to pinpoint the causes, nothing came out. Physio is still the best treatment to ease the ache by far. Recently, some members of my family have been diagnosed with gastric illnesses as well. Thanks goodness, we recently discovered the illnesses are still at a curable stage! Although worry, I sincerely hope for the very best for these people I care a lot and love.

Healthy Eating

All these health issues happened lately has somehow prompted me to find a solution to healthy living. Whilst we can't change the fact that our body wears off as we age, the only thing we can do to slow down the progression is to adopt a healthy eating habit! I have been telling everyone, this is where money should be invested on.

Instead of using a normal sea salt, I am now using Maldon which costs me several dollars more. Instead of using normal margarine, we now are using only Logicol (proclaimed in clinical studies to be able to lower LDL cholesterol). Other tips like replacing sugar with honey, including more Broccoli or greens in cooking, more antioxydant-based veges like garlic, tomato and onion, ultimately I believe will contribute to a significate improvement to our health. One of my colleague lose 18kg in barely 18 months from just having salad for lunch everyday! Amazing, huh? Speaking about that, I should be more discipline over myself too! I must make a serous attempt to cut down saturated fats loaded junk food too.

Exercises

I know I am being long-winded. But, exercise is substantial. A mere 10 minutes brisk walking daily adds up to make a huge difference to your health. Silly as it may sound, sometimes Alex and I even do push up or sit up on the bed just before retiring. And we are doing this more often lately as the weather turns cold.

Stress Management

My dermatitis and ulcer plummet when I melt down, which I hate to admit I am at the moment (after my recent teeth extraction). I felt so painfully disgusted as I took a closer look at myself in the mirror. The green bruises on my chin is not much of worry. The swollen cheek is what that annoys me most. Not until my family rang to inform me about their illnesses, I started to tell them to relax and stay stress-free, then I realised I haven't been doing it myself. How embarrassed! Staying stress-free is the key to health success. I wish I could have hander it a bit better.

Work

Work has been good although I barely talk. Some staff have been warm to my return. I feel touched sometimes when they do it. Patient counselling is by far the toughest job I encounter at the moment.

Leisure

Not much I can do with our current conditions. Alex hardly sit in the car or couch. His back aches when he sits, relieved when he stands. In fact, we spent a lot of time sleeping. When we are not asleep, we play some old SimCity2000 games, some shooting games on PS3 or watch some funny cartoon on DVDs. We have to leave cruising and extreme activities till we are fully recovered!

What is on my mind RIGHT NOW?

I feel like having roast chicken.

I don't know why. I suppose craving comes whenever it wants to.

孩子大了,就会组织另一头家。
这,不代表旧时的父母已不在,
而是家里多了媳妇和女婿而已。

病情update

今天写了三篇博文,
这篇是我今晚的病情update。

今天因为老公上班的关系,
我怕他累,
加上自己的肿痛也消了,
于是便下厨煮点羊肉和沙拉给他吃。
而我呢?
我就跟昨晚一样,以汤送饭。

用膳之时,
我以为自己很厉害,
跟老公要了一小小块的羊肉,
以为小得可以直接吞咽,
后来进入喉咙的时候卡住了,
我惟有吐出来再轻轻咀嚼两下,
结果爆线了,
羊肉跟血一块吞下去,
我的肿痛又再次回到我嘴边。

拔牙至康复的过程,
我未曾试过这么痛,
痛到我的脸即刻麻痹,眼水直流。
坐在一旁的老公吓着了,
于是赶快拿冰给我护脸,
后来,吞了两粒止痛药,
过了二十分钟,肿痛终于舍得拜拜了。

老公很紧张,叫我给老板电话说明天不可以上班。
可是,答应了老板,我不能不去做工,
即使痛到流眼泪,在老公面前,我还是装得很强壮,
我跟他说,我明天一定行的!

我很想念吃肉呐~
但又不能太过急性子,又不能贪心。

关于删除面子书的事

有朋友问我:[你是不是被骚扰了?不要怕!快告诉我!]

于是,我挂着满脸疑问地问她:[怎么说呢?]

朋友很担心地问:[那你怎么把面子书又删除了?]

哦!原来是这么一回事。
自我再次删除面子书以来,身边关心我的朋友很快就察觉到了。
我一拖再拖,终于拖到今天,才与大家交代一下为何我不再投入面子书里了。
让你们担心,都是我不好,对不起了。

两年前,我有个病人暗恋我,
当时因为我的真名很特别,病人很快的就从网上索取一些关于我的资料,
比如我平时的喜好,我和家人的照片,从哪里来,哪里大学毕业等等。
当时我没什么秘密好隐藏,也不觉得他知道后,可以对我做出多大的干扰,
直到病人知道我识了男朋友后,看了我们俩的照片,心里不舒服就问起我,

[你几时开始有了男朋友?他做什么的?]

身为我的病人,又还没到当我朋友的阶段,这样审问我好像不太礼貌,
而且,我在工作岗位跟他吵起来又不是很好看,
于是,我就把网上的一切一切,包括大学时候的部落和面子书通通删除。

后来,我搬家了。
我买了一些新家私,病人又刚好从事家私搬运工作,
很巧很巧的,他也知道我住在哪里了,我当时差点晕掉。
接着,他有继续到我药店里找我,
当时的肥老板(媒人)挺保护我的,三两下把他劝掉,从此以后我就再也没见过此人了。

说到这里,
一年逝去,
因为爱好烹饪,加上我遇见了一位很疼爱我的男朋友,
每次和他经历过一些事就会有股冲动想把一切记住,
后来,感情加深,知道了他也爱煮,于是我们更加努力去经历部落。
后来的后来,因为大马的家人和朋友,我又另开了面子书,
希望藉由面子书来联络感情,至少让他们知道我这些日子在澳洲干什么。
开张面子书的事情,我一直没告诉老公,
因为那次之后,他很担心外人的骚扰,
他对面子书的认识不大,认为在网上提供资料很危险,
一开始,我向他保证没事的,因为我可以换掉setting,外人是闯不进来的。
而且,我又不是十八岁美眉,人家都嫌我老了。

两三个月前,悉尼有个药剂店的员工被炒了,
因为他欺骗公司的病假,这里说生病,那里在面子书又不是这么写。
这些都是那人的笨,那岂是天衣无缝的计划呢?
他的面子书里虽然没有老板,却有大把同事在看。
后来,我公司的太子也是同样从面子书里被他老爸抓住痛脚。

老公说,面子书的威力真的够大!

接着,我们店里又来了一宗类似的案件,当时事情搞到有点大,我都没眼看。

听了老公的一番话,觉得他很有道理,况且我有个打中字的部落,没有面子书也罢。
我只感叹,以后要知道朋友结婚生子的消息就可能会困难一点咯。

今早看电视新闻的时候,
在悉尼有宗命案跟面子书有关(ABC news:Facebook Murder),
十几岁的美少女在面子书上结识坏人,结果被弃尸野荒。
老公又借此再叮咛:[哇!你看!面子书有多危险啊!]
呵呵~
是唠叨了一点,可是我知道他很保护我,只是不想我出事罢了。

朋友们,
交代了一切,我心里就舒服了点,
那你们就不必再担心我的安危了。
谢啦~

明天上班了!

今天礼拜一,每个人都去上班了,突然间家里和四周围都变得很清静。
今天是我在家里养病的第五天,早上起来原本感觉有点痛,
吃了antibiotic和两粒止痛药就不觉得那么疼痛了。
脸也稍微没那么肿了,看来我已经慢慢的康复了!

今天跟昨天一样,一起床就很想吃香蕉。
于是便拔了一根慢慢嚼,
这次嘴巴可以张大点,所以吃起来容易多了。

看我有好转,我就给老板打了通电话,跟他说我明天可以上班了(只要他不介意我猪头柄的样子),
听起来是不是有点愚蠢呢?
哪里来个打工仔会自动送上门的?
没错,我就是那个蠢蛋了。
这五天里,呆在家里静静的,我有点闷,
这样持续下去,我只怕迟早会傻掉。

康复中

我正要坐下如厕时,听到隔壁间的人突然开口说 "嘿,你好吗?"

我不是那种习惯跟人家在厕所打交道的人。我不知道自己遇上什么情況,
我尴尬地回答 "还好啊!"

然後隔壁间的人又接着问: "你在做什么呢?"

这是什么问题啊? 當下我真的觉得太诡异了。
于是我回答"嗯 ...跟你一样坐在马桶上啊"

此时我只想要赶快离开厕所,接着隔壁间的人又问:"我可以过來吗?"

这个真的太荒唐了,于是我打算礼貌地結束这个对话,
我说"不行耶....我现在沒空!!!"

于是我听到隔壁间的人紧张地说:

"听着, 我等一下再打电话給你,因为隔壁间有个笨蛋一直回答我所有的问题 !!"

.......................

从阿米部落那里看到此笑话,
笑到我嘴烈,顿时痛得连自己拔牙的事都忘记了!

晚上用膳时,跟老公再次说起此笑话,
我又再次笑到嘴烈,痛得我连汤都喝不下了。

在写此博文的时候,我的脸肿稍微消了点,是个很大的进步。

老公妈妈很担心我,今天带了一包豆腐皮给我们做饭,
她说我消瘦了点,可是我跳上去秤的时候却还是一样。

我要赶快好起来!

拔牙后的第四天,我的痛没了,脸除了稍微肿了点,今天也多了一块瘀青。
老板很体谅我的病情,所以多放了我一天病假。

四天内至今,我只喝了五杯豆奶、scrambled egg、两包麦片和三碗粥,体重减了半公斤。

今天睡醒过后,突然很想吃香蕉,
可是嘴巴又打不开,但又很想吃。
我就拔了一根香蕉,把它给磨烂,
然后在慢慢送进嘴里咀嚼。
因为这里的香蕉都很肥大,
待会我将会把另一半加入麦片里一起拌着吃。

今早,我再次研究被拔掉的智慧牙,我竟然发现最大颗的那棵几乎跟我尾指母一样大!而且,它很洁白,结构也很完整,它是一颗很壮很壮的智慧牙!

智慧牙被拔掉后,我心里总是耿耿于怀。
两天前,泡麦片的时候,倒了1 1/2 杯热水去溶解麦片。
老公就问我,怎么麦片看来那么稀啊?是不是做错了哪里?
过后,仔细再看包装,应该是倒1/2 杯,我却多添了三倍的热水,不稀才怪。

我的老公身体不舒服,久患重现,要找看physio的时间都没有,我也不想我的事麻烦到他。

另外,我有个很尊重的人生病了。
她是个典型的火柴人,样样都以他人为先。
她知道我不方便讲电话,可是她坚持打来跟我报告病情,
知道了后,也不许我向外透露病情。
我好难过,我顿时有点想哭,可是我很爱她,她不许我说,我就不说。

比起其他人,其实我的牙肿牙痛算是芝麻小事了。
越多人问候我,关心我,我就越是内疚。
我很想快速好起来,因为我有很多人等着我去照顾。

拔牙记

昨天十点半入院,等了五个小时才轮到我的手术。
这次割掉的是三颗智慧牙。
牙医一个月前,跟我说,下面两颗可能比较麻烦。
手术开始的时候,
护士小姐跟我说:

[美美的脸,大大的眼睛,待一会可能比较肿,就没那么美丽了,不要介意哦!”

护士小姐这样跟我开玩笑,我心情放松了许多。

接着,麻醉师为我注射麻醉药,
找了好几个血管都找不成,
手术开始之前,我的手都疼死了。
麻醉师还跟我开玩笑,

[我当了麻醉师上二十年了,看来还是不够professional,对吗?]

[没有啦,只是我的皮厚而已]

牙医为我戴上氧气管之前,也问我有什么要问他的。

我笑笑的回他,

[等下子,你可以小心点吗?呵呵~]

呵呵.. 呵呵.. 呵呵.. 呵呵.. .. 呵呵... ...

... ... ... ...

之后发生什么事,我就完全不记得了。
醒来的时候,老公已经在病房那里等我了。
老公亲吻我的额头,安慰我,还给我留下难得的病照。

手术办妥后,我不停的吐血,这是正常的。

护士把我安置在小孩病房休息,
才休息一个小时,我迷迷糊糊的走到厕所换衣服,
再要求护士把我吊盐水的针筒拿开,让我早点回家休息。
老公说我很不听话,可是我真的很想回家。

现在,我在家里养病着,昨天至今,我只喝了两杯牛奶。
老公现在正为我准备scrambled egg,希望我能多吃几口咯!

绑鞋带

相爱期间,
有时行路时,鞋带会松开,
那时候的男朋友便会即刻蹲下来为我绑紧它。
路人经过,看到这种情景,
有时会遮住嘴巴偷笑。

男朋友,之所以不介意跪下来替我绑鞋带,
是因为他爱我,他怕我跌倒,管人家笑不笑的。

跟如今的我一样,
每早上班的时候,
我都会替老公捆绑鞋带。

老公有时会对我说:

“我很幸运有个体贴的老婆,天天给我帮鞋带”

我也有时回他说:

“我也很幸运有个很疼我的老公,细心到能放下自尊替我绑鞋带”

学生开工的第一天

学生开工的第一天,
是穿着短裙来的,
而且,鞋子是花的。
学生虽然绑了马尾,
跟披头散发却没什么两样。

学生开工的第一天,
我第一句就问她:

[你有没有其他工作经验?]

[有,我在pizza店上过班]

[好,这里可能对员工整体制服会有点要求。下一次上班,要注意裙子、鞋子和头发,好吗?]

学生开工的第一天,
一个早上被我这样问话,
从表情看来,好像不太开心了。

记得学生还未正式上班之前,
我曾跟她(或她老师)提过,
上早下午休息十分钟,中午半个小时,学生的话,一个小时没问题。

学生开工的第一天,
十点半,不见人影了一个小时,
下午的时候,又突然人间蒸发了半个钟。
期间,整公司的人都在找她,
大家还很担心她会不会被人家拐了。

学生开工的第一天,
我要她观察其他同事怎么处理药方和病人,
安排好她的时间表,我跑去处理我的文件,
莫名其妙,学生跟着跑进来我的房间,还坐在我的椅子上转啊转,而且还问我:

[这个能够弄低一点吗?太高了啦!]

我很严厉的看着她,

[我不是叫你去看人家怎么做吗?你在这里做么?]

学生开工的第一天,
当天只有我一个药剂师,
实在无法抽时间教导学生,
因此,学生后来到店里乱跑乱玩都没人知。

下午的时候,老板回来了。
一看见学生的怪模样,就抓我问话。

[你是怎么教学生的?她不行的话,就叫她排货好了,不要让她动重要的东西]

无奈的我,也很想告诉老板,

[知道教学生是那么困难的事,那你就别答应老师啊!]

Family Tree

下午的时候,去了老爷那里拔几根薄荷叶。
(因为老爷种了很多植物,知道我们爱煮就任我们乱拔)
去到的时候,我们顺便坐一下,跟家母老爷聊一聊天。

坐下来的时候,老公手里刚好拿起一本很厚的书,
原来是他们家的祖传秘方食谱。
书本的外壳包装精美,里面也有很多诱人的彩色食物图,
也有很多黑白旧照片,看来像老公婆婆那年代拍下来的。

书本的前几页,说的都是家庭背景。
其中一页,还画了大大一副family tree,
老公的名字也印在里面。



老公的太爷(亦是老爷的爷爷,爷爷的爸爸),
据书本来说,是个很有名气的长官,当时掌管一条小村子。
从书本的文字看来,这位太爷,好像很犀利,很有power,
连老公读到这里,也不知不觉的骄傲起来!

[爸!你怎么从来没提过太爷是个那么厉害的人啊?]

[哎呀!我那里记得那么多?搞不好是人家瞎写的]

[怎么会?!!!]

Anyway,重点是,
我觉得老公家里很厉害。
因为从那棵family tree来分析的话,
这本书一共述说了至少三个年代的故事,
里头所提到的人物应该都有四十几个人,
祖传的食谱也多达一百。

更重要的是,
在这个年代,
要找个肯把家事好好写下来的人,真是少之又少。

他们这家,却有着厚厚的一本书,
记载了上几代发生过的事,
留给后人作参考(纪念)。

老公要是没这本书,肯定就不知他太爷何方神圣?
更加不会了解自己太爷原来是如此威严的一个人。

写书的这位,肯定花了不少心机,一定是个爱家的人。
真是让人佩服!

我马麻那里亲戚那么多,
要是人人都能贡献一点,
我也想跟老公一样,分享我的一些家事。
毕竟,据我所知,
我外公也是个不差的人嘛。

酿豆腐 Stuffed Tofu

You have probably noticed I express a lot in my dishes using chilli flake. Unlike raw chilli, the dried form has a subtle spiciness which stimulates appetite, not too over-powering to kill the natural flavours of the ingredients. I find chilli flake particularly inevitable in this dish. It enhances the aroma of both the soup and stuffed tofu overall.

Photobucket

Ingredients (A) (to marinate pork mince):

Oyster sauce
Five spice powder
Sugar
Pepper
Chilli flake

Other ingredients:

1 packet pork mince
1 red capsicum
8-10 dry shiitake mushrooms
1 packet firm tofu
1 jalapeno chilli
1 small packet of chicken stock
Oil
Sesame oil
Salt
Pepper
Chilli flake

Method:

1. Marinate pork mince with ingredients (A) and leave overnight.
2. Soak dry shiitake mushrooms in warm water until soft.
3. Cut capsicum crossectionally into 3-4 pieces, and halve the jalapeno chilli. Remove seeds and rinse well.
4. Remove tofu from its packaging, and divide it into 4-6 pieces.
5. Hollow the centre of tofu pieces with a teaspoon. Save the remnants for later use.
6. Stuff capsicum, shiitake mushrooms, jalapeno chilli and tofu.
7. Prepare a pot of warm chicken stock. Add a cup of water to dilute the saltiness. Maintain temperature at low heat.
8. Prepare a frying pan with some oil.
9. Pan-fry stuffed items until semi-cooked, before transfering to the pot for stewing. Blot with paper towel to remove excess oil before adding to the pot.
10. Add the tofu remnants, a few drops of saseme oil, more chilli flake, salt and pepper into the pot for extra flavours.
