How Things Are Like So Far

In the last 10 over hours or so that I've been at KKH, I think I've taken at least 5-6 BP readings. Most of the readings were in the normal range (110ish - 120ish) and only one at 830pm which was 160ish.

No idea why the fluctuation. 

Managed to snooze for abit from 12ish to 1ish, but was woken up for a reading at 1.15am. Stayed up till 2ish thinking they'd take a reading again an hour again but they didn't and I managed to sleep and got woken up at about 5.15am for another reading. The latest one was 113/-.

Also gave 3 pee samples in the time I was here, thankfully I drink a lot of water so am able to perform. Hehe. And everything seems normal. I'm hoping to be discharged before 11.30am later today. 

One thing I've noticed is that it isn't that easy to rest well in the hospital. For one, the beds aren't all that comfy (no fluffy pillows) and that waterproof plastic layer just makes your butt sweat. Lol.

The constant people walking in and out is also distracting. I'm in the C-class ward which is the 6-bedder, but it's really very open so I can hear people snoring, chatting, and babies crying. 

Newborns crying sound like cats meowing. 

Anyway I'm glad that my blood pressure seems to be ok. Hope the doctor does his/her rounds early so I can know what's going on. Meanwhile, I'm going to try to snooze a little bit more.

So I'm writing this from my hospital bed in KKH. I went for my routine check up and apparently my blood pressure was really high so the gynae wrote a note and asked me to go to KKH A&E immediately. 

I should have taken yumtum's advise and packed some stuff (toiletries) but I only took my phone charger (and not even the long cable pfft) and headed to the hospital. Optimistic me. 

Anyway after observation at the hospital, the doctor said they couldn't let me go home so I had to be admitted for at least 24 hours. +3 bought me some food (2 sandwiches which I wolfed down cos I only got to eat at 9pm) and 2 more cheeseburgers (in case I get hungry in the middle of the night). 

Not the best midnight snack cos you know, salt and high blood pressure don't go well together, but I'm just keeping it here in case I get hungry. And in case anyone jumps to any conclusions, mac isn't something I eat regularly. 

Now I'm decked out in the fancy hospital gown, which incidentally is nursing friendly (KKH mah) and now I see why nursing tops can be so useful. You've got holes everywhere for your boobs to pop out! 

I've also got to have my BP checked every hour (nurse said, no need to sleep lor) so if there is a sudden spammage of posts, you know why. 

Anyway, all is well and I'm trying to stay chill and relexed. Have my phone charger so yay for juiced up phones. Hehee.

Me: Lol 
+3: Don't laugh! It's a silencer for my farts.

Coney Island

After a successful morning gallivanting around town yesterday, +3 and I thought it would be a good idea to head out in the morning like we did and be back after lunch in time for an afternoon nap.

The destination? Coney Island. 

We woke up a little later than we did yesterday, and left at about 9am. Took the bus to Punggol Promenade and walked towards Coney Island. We got to the West entrance, and followed the main path in. 

It was a simple walk, but not much shade and it got hotter as the day wore on. We walked in Coney Island for 1.5 to 2hours from one end to the other, exiting at the East entrance at Lorong Halus. 

We really should have packed some food or had a more substantial breakfast because we were getting hungry, and the heat wasn't helping. Thankfully it was an easy walk so we just trudged along. 

Finally got to this rest point at Lorong Halus and took a little break. Played some Ingress and took down a couple of portals, and headed towards the park connector and to the area where all the eating places were. 

Rewarded ourselves with Popeye's chicken, had a cup of coffee after lunch, and walked towards our soon-to-be-home. Yay it's great to be within walking distance from the park connector! 

Got back home, showered and napped. What a brilliant day. :) 


So CH has introduced the evil game, Ingress, to +3 and I. It's a game app that you install on your phone, where landmarks around you are "portals". You choose a side (green or blue) and try to hack or capture as many portals as you can. 

It's bloody addictive and CH is an evil woman.

Anyway apparently the blue folk are leading worldwide, and CH got us to team green. We have a few portals in our 'hood that were green (yay) but then today found out that they were taken over by some blue folks (boo!). 

Long story short, +3 decided to go around this evening and take them back. Woohoo! It was fun skulking around the neighbourhood, and I think we actually saw the person who was defending his portals while we were attacking them. Hehehe.
