Day Minus 8

I have fever and everything that comes with it.
Coming home after work today, I was a girl with a mission. I'm going to do something with my stuffy nose because I couldn't bear breathing through my mouth, it makes me sound like a whale and cough more often.

I read, somewhere on the internet (u know, like after an hour of scrolling through 'how-to' google search results) that inhaling steam helps your breathing.

So, in desperation to de-congest my stuffy nose, I boiled some water, poured it into a bowl, and carefully carried the bowl into a table, so I could sit, put a blanket over my head and inhale the steam...

It turned out, I wasn't careful enough... while  carrying the hot water to the table, I lost balance... and the steaming hot water spilled over my hand.

Lesson 101, if you're having a severe headache and can't barely walk properly, don't be so ambitious with yourself, you know like carrying a dangerous object while walking or... carrying a bowl of hot steaming water even for a short distance.

Consequence 101, padan muka nanti tangan buruk. I don't think it'll heal in 8 days. (Now googling: how to treat scalding)

The mission was however considered partially successful. The burn hurt so much, and I cried... and crying turned out to be an effective de-congestion.  well, at least temporarily. haha! I called mak because I don't know what to do and feel so miserable.. and useless....frustrated, self-loathing, knowing that I can't even take a good care of myself, how am I going to take care of someone else. 

To you, I'm sorry :(
