I thought I had slept the night away when I felt the painful swallowing. I reluctantly woke myself up to get a drink of water. I passed by the clock and lo and behold, I had only slept for 1 hour!! (curses!!!) . Needless to say, sleep after that was also uncomfortable.
I received advice to just drink more water and gargle with salted water and blablabla... but me aa... i don't think I am the manja type. I can honestly say I have a high threshold for physical pain but any illness, migraine ka, i'll reach for the tablets, the pills to cast the pain away. Apalagi this tonsilitis thingy. So, went to Dr. Kheng's to get the antibiotics that is denied of anybody who goes to the pharmacy. Pharmacies aren't allowed to sell antitbiotics, you see.
So, three doses of antibiotics later, I'm almost ok.

Anyway, i digress...
By 3.15 I was already waiting for my turn to come. While waiting, I flipped and read three MAS magazine (going places). Hmm...there's a lack of reading material here. Although they ever so nicely tried to provide some outdated newspaper, mags and promo mags. I always try to remember to bring some old copies of mags but of course it always slips my mind.
It was near 4.10 when my name was called. Doc Devi was attending to some other patient on the adjoining room. I could hear her administer advice and give explanation.
I consider myself being quite familiar with the room already. (Almost three years I've been coming here man!!). I commented that if my o-rings were going to be replaced today i'd like to choose some other colors like blue, green or red.
My stubborn molar was further grinded a bit. The attending doc kept asking me if it was nyilu or not and I kept mumbling (Why do dentist ask you questions and expect you to answer when they have their utensils or fingers thrust into your mouth?) , no.
Doc Devi came by and checked my teeth and discussed something with the dental technician. Doc Devi will have to study my dental model and plan this and that. So, i'll probably be seeing the doc one or two more times before D-day. I'll need to have another x-ray of my jaws. That will be done on the next visit.
By the by, my o-rings are blue and light blue, set alternately between teeth.

Well, a trip with Mona's D-max took us to Tambunan and Keningau on Saturday. I wanted to see the Batu Gong in Tambunan but we missed the simpang. We have this one friend who said she was in Tambunan for 6 months but tidak pun tau where the Batu Gong was... We did have a brief visit to Datu Paduka Mat Salleh Memorial Park though.
When we reached Keningau, heheh... the same friend could point out the many happy spots to visit (nite happy spots) kan Mer kan?...
We had lunch at Permata Club for want of a good atmosphere where there was air-con. Unfortunately after we had sat down our tired buns then we were told the air-con was't really working. Anyway, the food was ok. I liked my carrot susu juice.
Later after lunch, we met julietpapagolf at RedBulls. He and Elizabeth(the Mrs) are apparently the regular patrons of RedBulls. They even won the men and women's dart competition recently. Huu....bestnya husband & wife sama wavelength.
julietpapagolf's jalopy antenna...really reaching for the sky oo...
I tried my hands at dart. heheh...ada jugala yang landed on the dart board itself. Played a couple of games of pool with Elizabeth. Punya lama tidak pigang pool stick... the balls were hit all over the table.
sifu : gini baa...
It was fun catching up with julietpapagolf. He's taking KDP now. Found out also some other friends are also in the KDP.
We had so much fun catching up with old funny stories that it was almost 7 when we started our journey back to Tambunan to go beraya at Tn DJ's place. Somewhere simpang Sg. Monsurulung. Today I found out that it used to be the old road connecting Tambunan to Keningau. Adventurous road oo going to Tn DJ's residence. Tabik la sama Savvy Julietpapagolf.
Tn DJ greeted us open armed. It was so good to see him again. I bet Mona and Mer would agree too. It was such a homey atmosphere. There were already many visitors there. Chatting and laughing and enjoying themselves. And the food, chicken curry was just nice, the rendang I regretably didn't take as my gums were quietly protesting against it. I did take the Kelupis - a type of steamed starchy rice with santan. Almost like lemang but wrapped in a kind of leaf, not steamed in bamboo. I took two packets of Kelupis as I wanted to concentrate later on the Kuih Raya. Mer helped herself liberally with the kelupis and chicken curry. I know sadap ba tu.. I would have rivalled you Mer tapi tau la... gigi macam mana... hahahaha...
Oh ya, the kuih raya..makmur, ulat bulu, dahlia, kuih kelapa, almond london (tangan tidak sampai huhu...) batang buruk, kacang-kacangan, kek lapis... huih...so many types. All delicious i'd say.
Chit chat chit chat... Tengok tengok... it was nearly 8pm.. It was nearly 10 something I arrived at Sierra and 11 something for Mer to reach home safe an sound. All in all it was a good outing. Next plan. Sayap Waterfalls maybe?

- Eiirrghh...3 more days of cuti for me and i have 1/6 more papers to mark. Do I consider that as an achievement? Can la.. When I should've finished them ages ago.
- Went beraya at my friend, Zillah's, yesterday. Enjoyed the food, but I enjoyed the chat and the laughter more. Happy Raya to you again Zills..muax..Next time la makan tu truffles ko aa..
- This cat ha... professional hustler...datang-datang trus pi manja-manja... I was doing my sewing last week and it climbed into the balcony and meowed its way into my time and concentration to seek attention, which of course it got.
