600 words of pain

I writing this while having pain in my right eye. It been so long that I had this pain and now it attack me again. I can’t do much work when I’m in pain especially the one that requires eyes to work. When my one eye hurt, it affect the other one too. I can’t open both of my eyes easyliy.

I have one class today and I need to go through it with pain. I close my eyes most of the time during the class. I pretend that I was sleepy but the truth was I’m not. It just that the pain slows down when I closed my eyes. It ease the pain I have.

I still confused why my right eye hurt so much. Before this it when only for few hours but now it when more than that. It almost more than 24 hours my right eye hurt. What I suspect is that when my body temperature increase, it will effect my right eye as showing that there is less water inside my body.

For that I need to refill it by drink a lot water. Even I drink almost 3 liter today, the pain only reduced little. Eventually I drank a cup of tangerine juice to cool down my body temperature. Alhamdullillah it kind of working. The pain slowly reduced although I can still feel the pain while I blink.

Right now the pain hold my work. Most of the work I need to be done can’t complete today. I even can’t see well while typing this essay. How awful is that!

I need to find a way to make this pain go away and cure my right eye again. Tomorrow I will go to university clinic center to check for any damage on my right eye. Before this I had gone there but it seems that the medicine the doctor gave wasn’t working as it supposed to. I can still see a tiny black spot on my right irish. It supposed to become yellow colour and then turn to some kind of white again. But I don’t see any changes in it showing that the damage is still there.

Hurts in eyes can relly be bad. Because eyes in one of the main organ that people use in their daily life. We see things so that we can work. So when my eyes hurt, it really affect all of my daily life. What can I do now is just to sleep and pray that the pain will go away when I wake up. That is the best choice I can do.

I had ate a tablet of pain killer but nothing ease my pain. Then I ate a tablet of swallon medicine. I hope it will ease the pain but it wasn’t working at all.

What reduce it only water. Now I feel that I might get attack by fever. Some come of fluid came out of my nose saying that I might get a flu. Oh I just cured from flu last week and now it will attack me again. Looks like my antibody is weak. I can’t fight it easily.

I think I need to eat healthy food to overcome this problem. I don’t want to prolong this problem to certain extend that I will not able to handle it well.

I called my mom and told her about my pain. I just want to inform her about the pain I got so that she will be aware of it if anything bad happen to me. I don’t want to make my parents worry much about me. I pray that this pain will go away soon so that I can return to do my job.


Keep it clean, please

Last Saturday a good friend of me, Jo came to my house to teach me how to cook bone soup. I don’t know much how to cook cow’s bone. What I did was just referring to cook book in order to cook.

It’s different having a mentor than having reading a book. I learn a lot just by seeing him cooking and hearing tips from his mouth.

One of the most important things he said was to keep all clean. He learn it from his mother. She is a strict person about cleanness  It then inherited by him. I wonder how strict his mom his? “You know, if I forget to throw rubbish bag plastic, it then will be on my bed,” said him.

All of materials to cook must keep clean. All must be washed thoroughly so that no contamination happen. Before this, I just wash vegetables and all sort of cooking materials slightly. For me, in the end it will put inside our mouth and then go straight to our stomach.

“That is why people easily get cancer,” said him.

We start by cutting onions and garlic. The onion and garlic were sure a lot as I never cook with more than 5 onion and garlic. Jo said that this was because we will cook in a big pot. The materials must be enough so that the food will taste good.

Is there will be any seasoning like Ajinomoto? Nope, he said. He prefer natural taste, although he did put Chicken cubes in the soup.

While cooking I too need to wash utensils used. Before this I thought it was better to wash all the utensils after the foods are ready to eat. But Jo insist that the behavior is not appropriate as we cook we too must make sure the surrounding around the kitchen clean.

This will make our kitchen clean and easy to use. More over, less work after cook and we can enjoy our meal better.

He too used newspapers as a lining while chopping vegetables. Well, I had learned this before from my friend.

At first I thought not to cook rice as I will send all of the foods to my friends room to be enjoyed together, then the rain pouring hard outside my kuarters. Then Jo insist in teaching me a technique to cook great rice. He put some onion, lemon grass and ginger in rice pot cooked together with the rice. It was a great deal to attract people to eat rice. It will smell better if putted together with pandan leaf.

For me, it was alright if occasionally cook rice with coconut milk but not good if cooked regularly. We might get heart attack as coconut milk is rich with cholesterol.

Later after the soup and rice cooked, it was time to put all of that together on a dinner table. I watched he used the technique he learned while he was working as a waiter in 5 stars hotel.

He organized it neatly and it sure looks excellent. It was far different from what my family was used to. We will just put foods on plates and nothing need to be done to decorate it. That is why I don’t bother much about food taste as long as it can eaten.

The soup taste great. I love it. On that day, I learn a lot from him. Cleanness is the main thing I should consider when I cook. This make our foods different from what hawkers and restaurants all around Malaysia. With cleanness, it teach me about how important to stay on course while cooking.
