Another holiday required...

I'm back! Yes, this mommy has been missing in action since X'mas Day. I've been pretty busy and I have not been well since I've got the cough and flu recently :( I wasn't in good shape a few nights ago but thank goodness after taking Panadols and Clarinase plus a few hours of sleep, I felt so much better!

However, I still have this itchy throat ...and since Ethan is still recovering...I went to the clinic this morning... By doctor's order, I'm to avoid eating fried food and drinking cold drinks. I have also been advised to take steamed food only which I presumed I can also take soupy kinda food??..(just trying to stretch the choice of food that I currently and sadly have..) I'm feeling a bit drowsy right now... I'm blaming it on the cough syrup that the doctor prescribed for me this morning. I guess he didn't hear my request though I vividly remember telling him for non-drowsy medicines....sigh....Despite the MC given by the doctor this morning, I came to work since I've been on leave since X'mas eve and I know I have many things to clear..
This drowsy feeling is getting on my nerve now...hmmm...maybe what I need right now is to take a breather...perhaps I should make a far far away trip....away from all the rush madness... like flying off to the City of Light i.e. Paris being one of the most popular destinations in the world. With its famous Eiffel Tower and many stories about it being a romantic and beautiful city, and of course its reputation as a centre of culture, business, fashion and design, I am not surprise that it can easily lure not only the French, but English , German and Spanish speaking tourists too. I do hope hubby will one day fly us to Paris for a romantic holiday and be able to do some hotel hopping at some of Paris Hotels or if you're French you can search for Paris Hôtels or París Hoteles in Spain - just for the fun of it. Hmm..but I do wonder how much would the rates be like for Paris Hotels...must be pretty expensive especially in Central Paris....

Psssttt...on a different note, did I tell you that I've actually lost some weight during my leave?? The weighting machine at the clinic showed that am now 51.7kg as compared to between 53 - 54 kg previously...must be due to my illness and lack of sleep... what a blessing in disguise eh hehe... I thought I would have put on some weight during the festives seasons esp with all the good food being served!!....No wonder FIL said I looked like I've lost some weight..hehe.. I just need to work on my tummy now...could Salsacise be the solution? Let's wait and see ;p
