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) 😛
Here are some things I have discovered over the past week about having a cold in Singapore.
- 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.
- 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.
- You might feel feverish like all the time but don’t worry, that’s probably just the air temperature.
- On the plus side, it turns out tissues are very, very cheap here!
- And there is a lot of fruit and fruit juice that you can buy, which is cool.
- 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.
- Neurofen is a prescribed medicine in Singapore!
- You probably won’t get used to having a cold and being hot.
- But drink buckets of water, and get plenty of rest…
And soon you’ll be back to using your AC while you sleep 🙂 Phew 😛
