Below is a non-fiber content post....it's about my nose
Lately I've been having a problematic nose which magically stuffs up in the evenings. Not only that, my eyes have been reddened, itchy and really dry. Now, I do have rhinitis. (For those who are not into gross details, just scroll all the way down. I don't want to freak you out and have you avoid my blog forever.)
Whenever I get out from an air-conditioned room to the warm outdoors*, I will involuntarily start sneezing a couple of times before I get *acclimatized*. I am always the one to be armed with packets of tissue paper in view of my sniffy nose. Every few months or so, I end up being put on an antibiotics course to clear my nose.
The irony is: the whole time when I was in China, I barely had this problem. My family doctor suggested that perhaps it's the humidity that makes me more prone to allergic reactions as the air is more laden with dust and such. She joked that I should consider moving overseas permanently; anywhere as long as it has 4 seasons so that I can be free of the problem. What a great idea - no more stuffed nose and itchy eyes to deal with! Moreover, I would have a fantastic reason to knit more!
I think I should subtly clue hubby onto this great plan.
Thesis writing update: Starting to write
Hate: I've just started writing my thesis... still sloooooooow start. Yes, and I do realize that I first told you all about on my Jan 05 post. That's just about 20 days right? It's not too slow, isn't it? (*Crossing* my fingers nervously and almost twisting them in the process.) Hopefully the engines will go purring soon!
Ms Saffron is sulking at the corner because I have been avoiding her deliberately for the past few days. And it's not her fault. Knitting is like a drug -- once you get hooked (pun intended), you can't get off!
Hate: To be revealed tomorrow as I haven't got time to take a photo earlier.
Love: It came from a good buddy, Siow Chin.

*By the way, Singapore's weather has gone normal so no more sweater wearing. I've put most of mine away.
