On road to hospital. Round 2 here we come 🙂 This round I have to stay for 5 days at Peter Mac. Let’s see how many hugs I can get this time haha.
What will you GIVE to others today?
Received a reminder letter from Australian Red Cross Blood Service today about my appointment. I called them and told them about my situation. I have been told that I won’t be able to donate my blood for the next 5 years 😮 So, if you haven’t donate your blood, I would invite you to do so 🙂 Someone has to replace my spot lol.
Health wise, I am not 100% but I am almost there. The angry pimples of my head has calmed down. I got DERMAID cream recommended by the pharmacist and it seems to help.

Deleted scenes: Giggle Fit…who’d have thought I could laugh for 2 minutes haha. I often joke that I want to be a lying down comedian instead of a stand up comedian lol.

How do you find WARMTH in your heart?
Cold winter days require a lot of warmth within. Research has shown that winter blues are real. Studies shown there is link between depression and lack of vitamin D. So, make sure that you got your vitamin D covered when the sun is not shining 🙂
Health wise, I am at 85%. I still feel fatigue and my recent issues is my scalp irritation. I have pimples all over my scalp now. It hurts and itches…my poor sensitive scalp lol.
Good news is I put on about 1kg back on. Thanks to mum yummy care 🙂 I played Wii for a bit with mum too haha. It’s nice to have mum around. She has always given me comfort when I need it.

Do you have FAITH in you?
I went to church with mum and Kim. Then, we went out to eat and did groceries. It’s fascinating how going out becomes a luxury. After chemo, I’m advised to avoid public places until day 14 when my immune will go back up again. Today, I said to Kim how nice it is to be able to eat again. And, we take these simple daily routine for granted.
The cutest thing happens when mum says grace before eating today. She prayed for me and she also prayed for Kim. I have no doubt my good things in life has happened because mum prays for me every single day. She would spend at least 3 hours praying daily even she is busy. Do you know that prayer is a form of meditation too?
Have FAITH that all shall be well…and it will.

Celebrate FAMILY time!
Spend the day hanging out with my family today. My mum, my brother, my sister in law and her sister + her husband and most importantly my niece and nephew! We played wii together.
It is a blessing how tragedy can bring family closer. It’s fascinating how kids aren’t phased by my hair and still see me the same.
Make sure you tell your family you love them 🙂

3 more days before next round : 8 – 12 July
Mum’s word of wisdom: “THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS LOVE”
I am at 75% recovery. I’m feeling pretty tired at night. I have 5 days left before next round. So, I have been upping my weight and nutrition. I am juicing in the morning. Mum also made me ginseng, ginger and chicken broth every day.
Mum cooked us yummy dinner today. PK and Emy’s company always made me feel so full lol. We were being naughty and ate cake and use my weight gain programme as excuse. Funny thing is, I don’t quite enjoy sugar as much as I do anymore…even if my eyes says yes. I feel so full now. I think I ate too much …or maybe my tummy has shrunk and can’t take as much these days lol.
PS: Thanks to Adele, Kimbo , PK and Emy for the kindness in making freezer happens.

Happy Friday!! 🙂
I didn’t end up shaving my hair. There were still few strong hair left for my new MINION look hahaha. Ba na naaaaaa….
My mum keeps comforting me whenever I got shocked seeing myself in the mirror. She says,”Don’t worry it’s just hair, it will grow back. The main thing is for you to get well first.” Bless mum. I’m so grateful to have her in my life.

Be BOLD and CELEBRATE your BALDNESS! Thank you Mark 🙂
Mark is having too much fun plucking my hair hahaha.
I have to say it was quite shocking even for me to see how much hair came out in the shower. It happens all at once. But I took a deep breath and remind myself, it is just hair and it will all be okay…
