A Trip to an Island (Part 2 - An Excrutiating Reaction & A Trip to the Hill)

On the way to the hotel, I was already feeling a bit unwell. By the time it was night time, I had a full blown attack which had me cringing in severe pain. I couldn't sleep and was in desperation. I swallowed so much medication - antihistamines, IBS medication, anti-nausea medication, reflux medication. By early morning I told my husband we had to go home.

And then I rushed to the bathroom to let everything out. And then again and again.

And then I just slept in exhaustion the whole day. We stayed in.

I still have no idea what triggered the attack.

Hubby went out to buy some rice. I boiled porridge chicken and lettuce iceberg lettuce to calm the intestines and system down. That helped a lot. We didn't go home after all. The trip wasn't ruined!

On the third day, we went out to the Penang Hill. I still wasn't 100% ok, but could trudge along with the guys.

A Trip to an Island (Part 1 - The Journey)

Last Wednesday, we went on a short trip to the island called Penang.

You can click on LINK to read more about Penang.

It was a smooth journey as it was a non-school-holiday period.

The Hotel

The 'haunted' corridor! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! 
The hotel was old but it had a small kitchen where I could reheat my frozen food. Both the hall and room aircons broke down and had to be serviced on the first evening itself. It blasted hot air and then rained during the night. And it was so noisy that we felt we were sleeping in a factory of some sorts.

But it was a nice short holiday.
