I sound like a frog, or rather, worse than a frog. I’ve lost my voice, and I really have no idea how in the world I’m going to explain the print ads I made to our client on Monday. I don’t know how and where I got this. Out of the blue, I lost my voice last Friday and my throat ached like hell. Now, I have dry cough to boot. Plus, an on again, off again fever. Why can’t I just have colds? Having colds is an annoyance, but at least it’s not as painful as this. At least when I have colds, I still get to eat. With this, I’m finding hard even to drink water, let alone swallow solid food.

Dad took pity on me and cooked Molo Soup so I could eat (Molo Soup is chicken stock with ground beef and pork wrapped in Wanton wrapper). It’s one of my favorite soups, but I only got to eat the chicken stock and Wanton wrappers. The ground beef and pork, I couldn’t swallow. Well, I can’t complain. It’s better than starving myself to death or simply trying to survive with lukewarm water till this pain goes away.

My dogs are being very considerate. They’re not insisting to sleep by my pillow while I’m sick. Maybe they know their fur is irritating my cough further… Or maybe they’re just irritated with my cough. Hehe.

Anyway, that’s it for now. I’m going to try to get some rest. I couldn’t sleep because of the pain in my throat and chest, but I think I’m going to just lie down and hope that I’ll fall asleep.
