how to have a cold when it’s hotter than hot.

It’s been a little while since my last post, which is very much mostly due to the fact that I have very much mostly just been having a silly cold! This in itself, however, has been a truly interesting experience (in retrospect) πŸ˜›

Here are some things I have discovered over the past week about having a cold in Singapore.

  1. It is most disconcerting having a cold when it’s not at all cold. You may feel like “hmm I should put on a jacket!” and then you will remember, you do not need to.
  2. Don’t turn on your AC at night. I didn’t know this was a bad idea. It is. Your throat will not like it.
  3. You might feel feverish like all the time but don’t worry,Β that’s probably just the air temperature.
  4. On the plus side, it turns out tissues are very, very cheap here!
  5. And there is a lot of fruit and fruit juice that you can buy, which is cool.
  6. And cherry flavoured cough medicine is not a thing here! This, for anyone who has ever experienced cherry flavoured cough medicine, is excellent news. Instead, you can buy peppermint cough medicine. Which is much nicer.
  7. Neurofen is a prescribed medicine in Singapore!
  8. You probably won’t get used to having a cold and being hot.
  9. But drink buckets of water, and get plenty of rest…

And soon you’ll be back to using your AC while you sleep πŸ™‚ Phew πŸ˜›
