Hoarse-ing Around

*cough cough hack hack kofffff!!!!*

Andrea Fonseka is not feeling well. :( I have a horrid cough that is aggrevating my asthma (yes, I have asthma) - which is bad because I lost my inhaler. Need to go buy one today, I hope that I can just grab it off the pharmacy and not need a prescription for one.

That aside, things couldn't be going better. I'm actually getting used to rising at 4am these days, its pretty nice to be done with work by noon-ish. Unfortunately sometimes my manager decides to ride me and schedule work for me AFTER ESPN which means I have to go on to another assignment following this one, which means I'll be up sometimes frmo 4am to 8-10pm. Yah. Like then its not so cool.

But y'know what?

I'm still so grateful to be doing what I am. There are loadsa other sh*ttier jobs out there, which I would rather poke needles in my eyes than put myself through it. Like the people who clean up everynight at bars and clubs after everyone's gone home. Or being the guys who wake up at 3am and start working on the roads. Its cold at that hour, and they keep at it till the next day in the blazin' sun. Flippin insane.

So yah. my manager can work me to the bones. I'll still be thankful. :)

------------

On a lighter note, Congratulations to Miss Japan! MORE POWER TO THE ASIAN SENSATION!


And much respect to Miss USA, who got up and still did her thing inspite of falling flat on her butt during the evening gown presentation. ;) ("...why do we fall, Master Wayne...? ..So that we can learn to pick ourselves up..")

hey Andrea, sayang sayang.. do get fully recovered very soon ya? :)

ya man,although we may not like our jobs at times but it is good that we are thankful and mindful to count our blessings. Sounds clichéd but hey, clichés are there for a reason.

haha yeah, my boss is a good boss. Firm, Understanding and Fair. He's chill about me blogging (during office hours i.e) as long as work gets done and results are tangible :)..*bleah*

~~~~~~~~

I have utter respect for Rachel Smith (ms. USA). Although she fell (which is quite embarrassing lah), she had managed to recover and gain much composure in a blink of an eye, managing even to smile and look confident. That is what I would term.. 'steady steady pom pi pi' ;).. Kudos to her.

Andrea, you shouldn't just go to the pharmacy without seeing the doctor. Tell you why.

You've been using the Ventolin inhaler, correct? It's a short-acting bronchodilator. Which means, as you know, you use it as and when you find yourself wheezing.

Now, go to your doctor and ask about the Respocort Autohaler, or other long-acting bronchodilators. Respocort is also an inhaler, which may be used in tandem with the Ventolin. The difference is that for Respocort or any other long-acting bronchodilator, you use it regularly - even when you don't feel discomfort. It's meant to reduce (maybe even eradicate) your susceptibility to attacks or bouts of wheezing in the long term.

So really, please don't "play-play" k... see your doctor about this. Asthma can kill; even celebrities (think Teresa Teng).

Trust me. Take it from a fellow asthmatic. :)

Gabriel Ho said...

Good morning Andrea,

Good morning my friends!!

Ayoyo, Please take it easy k. Like what Miko says. I attest to it. Drink plenty of air k.

Please do find time to do some light exercise. It will heal your asthma jeng jeng (really in Thai).

About the poster thing :) Will do k. We are all here to make friends and it the most wonderful thing, to be with people with common objectives. (to see you be like your wonderful parents hee hee)..many more ah...(Cheeky grin).

But seriously dear, know your own limits k. You will know it. You have a very strong mind, However, physical you are breaking down. Ja ( Dear in Thai) pop more vit pills to increase your resistant k.

Oh, my bread kana burnt..

Nevertheless, You are simply Wonderful..Thanks God..:)

nice "Batman Begins" quotation there.

CK said...

good lord, i'm not even in bed yet by 4am and you're already up and about, starting your day?!?! =)

kudos to Asia this year! did you notice that all the titles were awared to Asians - Ms Japan, Ms Philippines and Ms China? Finally, Asian beauty gets its long overdue recognition! Riyo Mori is really hot, eventhough she doesn't look Japanese...with her height and tanned/ exotic look. I thought she and Honey Lee (Ms Korea) looked kinda alike from certain angles.. :)

and kudos to Ms USA for her courage and bravery! to be able to pick herself up and stand stall despite falling down on the stage and getting lots of loud boo-ing from the crowd in the background when it was her turn to answer the million dollar question. the mexican crowd didn't seem to like her... must have been tough on her.

A, where was your ms universe held in 2004? any memorable incidents for you then?

take care of yourself and that asthma!

Faezah said...

Actually i thought Brazil deserved to win. She's prettier and answered the final question way better.Most of the others didn't even address the question..quite bad...even USA who I assume should have understood the question, it being in English and all.

karimah said...

Geez,you poor dear. Asthma stinks to core, hate it when it acts up. Do take care of your health okay?

Anyway,I was angered by d audience's reaction when Miss USA was on stage. She did deserve to be in d top 5 for d quick recovery from her fall.I bet her tush hurt, bad!

on Walks the Nite said...

:) ms japan may not have been the "prettiest" of em all as compared to ms Brazil or or say ms.Korea. Butt, Riyo Mori has poise, confidence and spunk in her stride. I think she does have the qualities to be an international representative for women and world causes. Afterall, some qualities can only be harnessed through time. (:

Even energizer batt needs to recharge, Andrea. So take a rest & get some sleep (w/o the coffee)

Andrea Fonseka said...

Jeff: ... actually an Energizer batt just goes flat what, right? ;P Its those IkanoPowerStation whatevermajiggies that you can recharge.

Oh I was going through my luggage bag - I found my puff!~ (puff=inhaler. I've been calling it 'puff' since I was little cause I couldn't pronounce 'inhaler' back then... heh.)

Thanks for caring. So sweet lah you all. Good thing tomorrow's a public holiday, y'know what? I'm getting me a full body massage. Its about time, I used to get it done ever so often, finally have a chance now, after.. what, 4 months. It'll be a 3 1/2 hour bloody expensive treatment but y'know what? It'll be worth every cent!

john doe said...

Arggh! I dun have that copy of FHM. Haha,In fact , I haven't bought a copy since I was in secondary 4. You see, back then, my mom found a stack of them under my bed and she immediately thought it was in the league of playboy mags! She kinda told my uncles I had a softporn addiction! Damn, ever since the incident, I only keep National Geographic mags under the bed.

Haiz
Anyway, who would u date?
a)A banker
b)An airline pilot
c)A male model
d)A law undergraduate
e)Brad pitt
f)Jay Z

Jefferson said...

Whew.. lucky you've found it. Yea.. rechargable batt or sumthing.. lol
Ahh.. I had it once in BKK, oil massage.. Had a quick 1/2hr cuz my flight back is 2 hour after that. ^__^ Missy Japan is sexy, but not as sexy as Andrea. =)

Pathfinder said...

(A) Before anybody else offers...A, I'll give you that massage! :D I'll even give you a discount. :P

(B) Miss Japan was robbed...last year, I think?

(C) Isn't it dangerous to lose a "puff"? Sweetheart, you're going to give me ulcers! Pathfinder adopts stern expression, wags finger...

(D) It's interesting that you consider yourself Asian. You are, of course...but aren't you a whole bunch of things?

Pathfinder said...

(E) Get better soon...

miko said...

I'll even pay to give you a massage.. lol.. envy you, haven't gotten a massage for a loooong time.. hope you feel better after your massage..

Gabriel Ho said...

Good questions John Doe...Dear can you please tell ask? We would all love to know..hee hee.

And agreed with Zick and all that you should drink plenty of water k.

Hahahahaha..miko. Agreed me too...me will be on standby, anytime for our lovely queen.... hahahaha.

Pleae take care and have a good rest k.


Good night everyone..

And Good night dear. Hug Hug..

Endoh Taiki said...

Everyone around me is getting ill, perhaps I bring bad luck to people.

Get well soon, you are needed to slog.

Gabriel Ho said...

ET: How you put your pic there..can teach? sorry not so savy la.

Andrea Fonseka said...

JohnDoe: to answer your question
a)A banker - maybe, but if he's the dude from DOND then NO! :P
b)An airline pilot - No. I wouldn't like my guy having to fly off somewhere ever so often.
c)A male model - maybe, but it depends if he has other plans other than modelling. See, some guys model cause they really dont have anything else they can do. Some model for fun, till they achieve their goals (like me. ;) i love hosting, not modelling.)

d)A law undergraduate - tend to be to young for me, so probably not. I usually go for older guys, simply because I think that I grew up pretty quickly cause I started working early.

e)Brad pitt - cannot eh. he's already married. :P

f)Jay Z - he's dating beyonce so, no! :P

Does that answer your question properly now? :)

Gabriel Ho (Gabe) said...

I better switch line to a banker or a model...at least I still have hope hee hee. Maybe:) hee hee

john doe said...

Hahaha. Your answer, isn't exactly an MCQ one u noe.Haha. Anyway, I like it, very insightful,u have put in effort and careful thought into who u would date, except now every law undergraduate who used to lend u their notes in the hope that some day magic would happen, would probably not! haha. joking!

Endoh Taiki said...

Gabriel,

I am a fellow blogger and that's my profile picture. It's not a function within this comment box.

So if Andrea comments in my blogpost, her super big profile will show up there in the comment box.

Fengshui316 said...

Andrea,Hope you can sign a copy of the 8 Days cover for me coming out on next Mon..haha..Thanks!

john doe said...

Anyone know how I can join Deal or no deal?

Andrea Fonseka said...

john doe: wait up for the next call for contestants. if a 2nd season is done, that is. :)

Pathfinder said...

"An airline pilot - No. I wouldn't like my guy having to fly off somewhere ever so often."

But you wouldn't have to take buses anymore, and you could always tag along on trips! ;)

I almost married a pilot (but that was airforce, not airline)...forget about tagging along on the aircraft, I couldn't even get on the airbase! :( It's fine...they weren't flying anywhere fun! ;)

I do have a friend who married a former SIA girl... :P

Gabriel Ho said...

Hey Pathfinder..What a small world:)

So hows life marrying a pilot?

Good night:)

Pathfinder said...

GH...

(A) I'm not sure what you mean. Are you a pilot? Are you married to one? Do I know you?

(B) I ALMOST married a pilot. If I had, I wouldn't dare hang out here! ;)

Gabriel Ho said...

(B) Are you airforce? What do you fly? (If you don't want to get into this, I understand.)

(C) Thanks for the support, but I'm not in.

Pathfinder said...

(D) What happened? Four countries, on four continents, happened! We were moving all over, and NOT in the same places at the same time. :(

Gabe Ho said...

PF,
yap, not so nice to answer you on your question B here.

Well, me still single so its okie hanging out here..hee.

Sorry to hear that. Yes, you are right. We are always travelling. Worst atill if you also need to travel. Well, thats life. See what andrea worte. This is good..


Who knows what tomorrow will bring,
All we have it today;
And all I can see, is all I can say
Who knows what life will throw our way.

These are things we will never know how,
We only have here, and now;
And we can only tell time with time,
For now, I just know you are mine.

If tomorrow things change,
It is beyond our control,
And all we have is here now.
It is all we see, and all that we say
And it is only for today.


Be happy and stay foolish k.

Chhers PF...Good luck to your love life.

Gabe Ho said...

PF: I may know your ex bF.. hee

pathfinder said...

GH...

Gabe Ho said...

But, you said on the above comment that you almost married a pilot? hmmm. She is a pilot and you alomost married her, you meant? hahaha. there are only few femailes pilot in the Air force..hmm.

Sorry Bro. Got it now. Cheers..

pathfinder said...

GH...

I know two of the female pilots in our airforce.

There are VERY FEW female pilots in the military, but there are NO female pathfinders...that I know of (not that I'm necessarily a pathfinder in real life). Didn't you say you were a (military) pilot? Don't tell me you've met female pathfinders! :O

I'm not talking to one of the GH impersonators, am I? :)

gabe Ho said...

Pf: Its me bro,

Yap, so far I have not come across, but thought your username is just for fun and very fresh though..
