sucky weekend

i think i was unlucky on sat.

i'm not a superstitious person, i don't freak out when a black cat crosses my path and i don't wear good luck charms...but there's just no other explanation for my lousy sat except that i was down on my luck.

went to support a friend at a soccer tournament in the morning. after a while, my neck started to itch real bad. thought it'll go away after a while, but then my skin turned red and the itching wouldn't stop. very soon, red bumps started to form. tried applying some lotion to soothe the itch, helped a bit but the rash didn't get better. worse still, it started to spread from neck to face and even on my arms.

as of now while i'm typing this entry, i'm fighting the urge to give my neck and arms a good scratch. after the doc gave me a jab and some meds this morning, the rash seems to be getting better...please please go away tmw...hate those ugly red itchy patches!

almost never got a rash in my least not from allergy...this is reallie a new experience.

and then, on sat nite, i had another brand new experience: serial collision.

this was how i described my encounter to cruz (excerpt from msn chat):

me: last nite just buanged on PIE
cruz: AH
me: lian2 huan2 che1 huo4
cruz: WAD HAPP
me: 4 cars!!
cruz: u sandwich or behind
me: travelling on right most lane...saw bmw in front e brake, i oso e brake. stopped in time. happie with stopping in time. but before i knew it, bang! so i was forced to kiss the bmw in front lor
cruz: that means behind hit you, you hit bmw lah
me: yar
cruz: why bmw e brake
me: bmw e brake coz in front got another collision i think
cruz: wah laos

being in a collision is NOT a pleasant experience. couldn't sleep last nite coz was still a little shaken...the sudden jerk from the back...the loud crash...the feeling of desperation and helplessness...scares me to imagine how much worse the crash would've been if we were all travelling at high, please drive safely.

嗯. 明天会更好.

my weekend

went jogging yesterday!! haha...haven't jogged in ages...ever since post-jc days of jogging almost 3 times every week, 4 km each time, it's been years since i reallie exercised outdoors, on my own, voluntarily. felt great on the whole, tho i didn't reallie like the afternoon sun, and i need to get new, proper running shoes. lousy shoes gave me blisters on both small toes!

ouch. leg muscles aching...

caught the live telecast of polling results last nite too. quite exciting! this is the first time i ever reallie paid attention to elections from campaigning to results...felt important to be sharing in a nation's decisive moment...even tho i didn't get to vote.

went to watch mission impossible 3 too. must say i'm impressed! think it's even better than the 1st 2. very exciting, very thrilling action scenes. but also came to realise that tom cruise tends to act in the same way in every movie...somehow this time watching him on screen as ethan hunt reminded me of his role in a movie long long ago called top gun. alwiz the "hero facing a huge dilemma very pek cek" expression that alternates between teary eyed controlled pleading, and curse-spewing ta-boleh-tahan outbursts...haha. a typical "cruise" formula for emotional scenes?
