Thanks to all who showed concern for my illness whether here or on Facebook or in text. I'm really touched by all the love around me.
Well, I'm relieved to say that my gastric flu and nausea are officially gone but in the process, cold/flu took their place. There were days when everything was altogether ravaging my body that it was quite unbearable.
The Paris leg of the trip has been pretty jinxed so far. I felt almost sorry to kh for spoiling so much of the trip.
Kh and I had to forgo quite a number of places to visit as I was sleeping for about 1.5 days here. In addition, I could not take the cold for too long and had to cut short the outdoor sightseeing. The sun sets at about 5pm here in Paris (and 2.50pm in London) during winter and by then many places would have been closed too. It was also a torture to go out in the cold with blocked and runny nose at the same time, together with sore throat and a cough building up. I was practically freezing through my nose and brain and blowing bits of blood out due to the cold dry weather.
So here's how I look with Rudolph nose. Not a pleasant sight at all.
Other than the hubby being so sweet and understanding, the other positive aspect of the trip would be the shopping. What with every designer item being up to 30% cheaper than in Singapore on top of tax refund, I was tempted to buy so many things here.
I kept telling kh that I'm helping him to save money by buying these designer labels here. Of course, he thinks I would actually save money by not buying but I'm sticking by MY logic.
Here's kh looking so miserable.
Here's how certain "medicine" could put a smile on sickly Jo's face.
Note: I've to clarify that not all the items in the paper bags shown above belong to me. The rest are gifts for family etc.
In case I don't get to log on again, here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas once more and a splendid 2012!
One of my good friend tagged me this quote by Audrey Hepburn and I love how I'm trying to live by it all this while. I hope this sticks by with all of you too. =)
