I was feeling slightly stoned on Wednesday evening, popped a couple 500mg paracetemol and I thought I was going to be alright. Went to work yesterday but lasted only half a day before taking off. Slept at home for a bit before heading to clinic.


I had high fever (over 38c) and the doctor suspected that I might have dengue (I had it some 12 years ago and it wasn’t fun). Got a blood test and this cocktail of drugs to help ease the inflamed throat, coughing, and fever.

Anyway, apart from this physical virus infection in REAL LIFE ™, I’ve also been tagged a few times on the 25 random facts thingy on facebook. I might as well do it here.

I slept with only minor interruption since yesterday afternoon. It’s almost 11am now and I’m feeling better, blood test result came out and luckily the platelet count is normal, no dengue. I’m hoping a bit more sleep and this whole thing will be over.

Anyway, apart from this REAL LIFE ™ viral infection, I’ve also been tagged a few times on the 25 random facts virus on facebook, so here goes:

Got this from suan, so here goes.

1. If you had to power to bring world peace, what and how would you do it?
A: Question is a little flawed, if I have the power, then the how would be automatically answered. The what would be world peace, what else?
Anyhow, As yet, nobody has the mystical power to bring world peace, the fastest and probably best option is sadly, through war and total domination of the entire world. However, I don’t really believe in starting a fight to end one. Hence the way I would do it is the Martin Luther King Jr’s way.

2. What would you do if you discovered that you are HIV positive?
A: Immediately whack Hwa Chai. My last sexual experience was probably him screwing me when I was drunk at the party. (he screwed every guy, just check out this photo!)

3. How would you react if the woman you are making out asks you to go down on her and you whiffed something suspicious?
A: Fish has a variety of smell, I try to get used to it.

4. Marvin or Bender? Why?
A: Marvin reminds me of Suan, Bender reminds me of Fuckstress.. I can’t choose. Don’t force me!

5. Why 42?
A: Because it’s the ultimate answer!

Same thing again from Fuckstress

1. if u were an animal what would u be? why?
A: a male bunny of course, we all know what bunnies do all day.

2. if u were a woman for a day what would u do?
A: I would hope it’s a ladies’ night so I can go party for free for once! Get pick up by a dude, follow him home, and get entertained by the horror of his face at 12 midnight when I turn back to being a man again.

3. if u could go back into your past, would u change anything? what? why?
A: I would talk to my dad more. We used to talk all day.

4. wat are u going to be when ur 40
A: I would throw a party on my 40th birthday and all of you are going to come! I hope fuckstress can still dance the way she does now, a bit worried about her knees.

5. Do you believe in a religion? Why/Why not?
A: No, I respect them but find no “answers” to life, the universe, and everything that physics, chemistry and biology could not convincingly answer.

You scored as Satanism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Satanism! Before you scream, do a bit of research on it. To be a Satanist, you don’t actually have to believe in Satan. Satanism generally focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes. Do some research if you immediately think of the satanic cult stereotype. Your beliefs may also resemble those of earth-based religions such as paganism.



















Which religion is the right one for you? (new version)
