The sun finally showed up, TB skin test, what’s in your drawer?

29 Oct

Hmm….I don’t like pumpkin nor pumpkin spice that much and yet I added pumpkin into my bowl of oats to welcome the Fall weather.

Have you sick and tired hearing me not having sweet tooth? One day I snapped my work drawer and I realized I have so many sweet snacks! Hmmm……

trail mix, brown rice cracker, Zicam cold remedy raspberry chewable, Quaker True Delight, green tea bags, Quadratini Espresso Bite size chocolate wafer, Sucrets herbal, GNU Lemon Ginger bar, and Prana bar.

The only thing I got addicted here is the Quadratini Espresso bite size chocolate wafer. It’s the only snack that’s not too sweet and I do love wafer when I was a kid.

I was so happy when I found this at an Asian market. It’s not about the taste but it’s about reliving my childhood by having it.

And for the rest of it, they’re basically just sitting in my work drawer nicely until there was a time I got trapped in the building and for sure I won’t be starving to death.

Another interesting found at Asian market is these babies:

Do you know what are these? According to the sign, they’re Thai Eggplants. Look cute!

One of my colleagues brought a box of homemade egg rolls.

Total 10 pieces to be shared with colleague in my work room. I swear I didn’t have ANY. But those smell good and greasy for sure.

My old self would devour these bad boys but now I know better. After not having any deep fried stuff for a while, I have better control. I won’t lie that I was still tempted to have a bite, but in the end I didn’t. Yay to me!

Part of it maybe thanks to K making me this yummy turkey and egg sandwich with toasted whole wheat bread for my b-fast.

Some good news: my bro’s fever FINALLY stabilized! He’s not reaching to 100sF anymore, 99 tops! And his medication has been reduced to 4! No more daily chauffeuring him to the clinic, no more long lunches for K and I, no more hassles. Yay!

And since I’m living with a person with an active TB, I had to be tested as well. The first test I was negative and after 8 weeks, I have to repeat the test as well. The result? I’M STILL NEGATIVE, so case closed! I am not infected with TB at all. Yay to that!

right after the injection, a little blood but not hurt at all

The skin test was read within 48-72 hours. Mine showed no reaction, meaning I don’t have any TB germs in my body.

Two more things to be Yay-ed (is that even a word)
We FINALLY got a decent looking with reasonable price kitchen rugs!

$10 each, we got 4 so total we spent $40. A nice looking kitchen rug usually cost $50 or more! Machine wash friendly as well!

$5 for 2 Kashi cereal box? I’ll take those!

Got these at Fresh and Easy. Usually Kashi cereal cost at least $3. Good toppings for my yogurt

I am not sure how many people in my complex have kids, but we’re prepared with some candies for Trick n Treats this coming Sunday.

Chocolate to be exact. And these are considered to be good Halloween candies. better than those straight sugar candies. The thing is if nobody showed up at our front door, at least we still can eat those (excluding me)..maybe K and my bro will have some 😛

Have a good Halloween weekend for those who celebrating and have a safe Trick n Treating 😀

      Haha actually I don’t really have sweet tooth, just for some reason my drawer full of sweet stuff. Still there, untouched, unless I am super starving and had absolutely no other choice.

      Yeah, who would expect him to get TB here in the States? it’s a 3rd world country disease. Oh well at least he’s feeling much better now after been on the meds for about 6 months.

    Did you get any trick-or-treaters?
    I never liked having left overs around the house…my sweet tooth could never resist sneaking a couple pieces!
    I much rather just have some of my Organic Dark Chocolate! Anti-oxidants and chocolate yumminess…YES PLEASE!

    OH MY GOD!!! 2.50 each for KASHI!?!? at fresh adn EASY!!?!??! NO F’IN WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love those crunch ones. kills the jaw, but totally worth it!!! 🙂

    i hope it’s not a cold either. i think i’m allergic to SOMETHING. dust, mabye from that devil pumpkin patch.

    i feel you on the pumpkin. i like having it, but i don’t need to go out and clean out the shelves like some other bloggers.

    i didn’t have any because i too wil binge! we are the same 🙂 i like the smell i think. i’m still working on NOT binging. success yesterday: 1 bowl of cereal and no eating from the box. i actaulally listened to my stomach and was actually full and content- i didn’t feel like eating more. you know?

    the sinus pain is still around but NOT AS BAD as before. i still nasal rinse. so gross.

    glad you don’t have tb! i hate those tests! they suck!!!! 😦 😦 😦

    Hi Jos,

    Wow, so many things to be yay-ed about ;-). And it’s a word if you want it to be, it’s your blog…teehee. Loving your blog by the way. I’m adding you to my google reader after this comment. Glad everything is ok with you and your brother. Those mini eggplants are my favorite. My parents like to pickle them. The kitchen rug looks lovely. Having a few of those egg rolls wouldn’t be too bad. Everything in moderation :-D. See you next post.

    Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam that’s A LOT of sweets in your drawer!!! 😀 😀 😀 I’m officially mad/jealous at/of you now! XD Quadratini is sooooooooooo good!! I wonder if there’s a vegan one out there…

    The thai eggplants ARE cute! Did you buy one/

    And do you not eat eggrolls or chocolate??? Chocolate’s good, you know! 😀

    $5 for 2 cereals?? Jeaaaaaalous! >:D

    Cute rug!!! Glad that it’s machine washable! If it’s not, then it sucks! 😦

    You don’t have to love pumpkins; I don’t either! (well, at least not TOO much) We’re so Asian XD

    I’m so glad that your brother is stablized!! What a relief, right? No more parents being mean to you? (hope so!) And thank goodness you don’t have tb! (wait, is it contagious???????) And go thank your K for making your breakfast, okay? 😉 (ha ha – K and okay rhymes…ha ha)

    Even though you’re not going trick or treating, have a good halloween! 😀

      I do eat chocolate in moderation (only dark ones – 60% cacao and up). Quadratini is so good…not sure if they have the vegan version… I know, huh….I didn’t realize my drawer is full of sweets though I don’t have sweet tooth. I guess it piled up after a while haha.

      I didn’t get the eggplants, cuz not sure how to cook them yet.

      Yes, I didn’t have the eggrolls at all…I love deep fried stuff but I know if I eat them I’ll feel sick from the grease.

      TB is very contagious (it’s air borne disease). and of course I thanked K for making me the b-fast 🙂

      I know I should been nicer to my parents..but sometimes can’t help it either.. oh well..
