Fit for the sick

I am sorry that I have been away for more than a week now; abandoning my blog for so long.
I have not been on a vacation, gosh, I really wished I was enjoying the beautiful scenery before my eyes instead of the four walls surrounding me.
Perhaps, in a strange way, it is considered a form of vacation, but a sick vacation.
Sad to say, I was down with the cold and fever which was rather bad and required bed rest and medication for the past one week.

It started with the sore throat, and then fever for the first two days, followed by a nasty cold and trailed by an extremely annoying cough.
Yes, it was THAT bad...

I wished I could log in to my social networks to write/update but I was just too tired and I was forbidden to do anything else but rest properly to ensure speedy recovery.
A good thing too, for it lasted more than a week, and took two visits to different doctors to help rid of the powerful virus.

As I slowly recover from my cough and the dry spell in the throat, I am also returning to my blog with more and more backdated posts.
After a week, I will start with some photos of the food which I had and prepared by a caring woman whom I call mother now (MIL).
Words are not really needed for this post which I meant as more of a picture-based.

As you can see, most of the food are definitely of steamed or plain sauce nature due to my throat and cough.
It was only as I was on the road to recovery that I get dishes which are lightly fried or slightly more variety.

I was even surprised with the varieties of fishballs in steamboat style during the weekend, guess it must be a little treat after a week of medication!:)

I am glad I am finally recovering, although the throat is starting to feel a little dry again and I am making sure that the sore throat will not recur, ever!

To all of you out there, the weather can be rather unpredictable of late, so the best way is to prevent from getting ill.
Therefore, drink LOTS of water, get enough of sleep every night and eat healthy!
