internal war

i have been invaded and conquered by a devious flu bug. the invasion was carried out starting 0430 this morning, in the form of sneak attacks manifesting in the occurrence of one blocked nostril. that was a really smart move because the defending body usually recognises this symptom as a normal hayfever reaction, which is kept under control by the daily administration of fluticasone propionate (aqueous nasal spray). i thought nothing of it until mid-sleep, i awoke with the offending nostril still blocked and running at the same time. my throat feels kinda fuct, and i'm running a fever too.

a super-sized bowl of fishball beehoon soup drenched in soya sauce has been consumed and war has been declared to free my body of Influenza Occupation. two elite task forces have been sent to launch an attack from the inside, powerful mini-armies packed into round blue codral tablets. each army has four divisions, paracetamol, codeine phosphate, pseudoephedrine hydrochloride and chlorpheniramine maleate. godspeed, soldiers! (or devilspeed if it might be faster)

the battle has begun.
