Birthday bug

The hubby and I have been floored by either a nasty gastroenteritis bug, or food poisoning since Thursday night. Hubby still insisted on crawling to work despite his condition yesterday, as he said there'll be no replacement for him (he was on call), but thankfully my mum helped to get lunch and dinner for me, which made it a little more bearable. I let baby J sleep next to me last night since his Papa was at work, and I just didn't have the strength to carry him in and out of his cot for feeds...

This morning, when baby J woke up, I plonked the fellow into his cot to play as I had to get our breakfast ready... and the next thing I know, everything went black... Thankfully, I wasn't carrying the boy then! After I came to (to see the little boy peering at me through the cot bars with a bemused expression on his face), I called my mum to come over to help me with the boy, and drank like half a huge bottle of 100-plus, after which I now feel slightly better (think I was dehydrated). What sucks is that its my birthday today, and we were supposed to celebrate by having a steak dinner at Lawry's, and I was really looking forward to it. Sigh!

Last year, we came down with food poisoning in Malaysia during hubby's birthday, so there seems to be some unfortunate trend. Ah well! Anyway, I'll leave you here with one of my favorite shots, taken at Lake Tekapo in New Zealand (The lake is gorgeous in summer, and this place boasts the clearest night sky in New Zealand, perfect if you like star-gazing!). Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Oh no! That's really scary that you blacked out. Hopefully you'll feel better soon so you can celebrate your birthday!

  2. Thanks Lindsay! :) We're both better now, after resting across the weekend!

  3. Just saw this as a link at the bottom of your 2011 birthday post...such a fantastic picture! All those colours!
