What is a Medical Certificate?

Medical Kit

Medical Certificate (MC)

  • a piece of paper which you acquire from your doctor to excuse you from a day or more of work
  • (Singapore) a short form for sick leave or SL
  • also a good alibi for you to sneak out for an interview

For the past two days, I have gone on half days for a medical check up. My absence wasn’t missed apparently at work.

Bing Bong: Toni, admit it your MC really not MC.

Me: ?

Bing Bong: You really went for an interview. (With that face of awesome to your face you little liar)

Me: No lah. I told you what? I went to the (medical) specialist.

Bing Bong: No need to lie to us you know.

Me: Aiya! What should I do for you to believe me? You want to see the scan of my vajayjay is it?!

Bing Bong: *stunned silence* (for like 1 second… just 1 second)

And that, my friends, is how you level up friendship at work and ward away suspicion.

That Cool Kind of Aunt

When I was growing up, I never exactly had a lot of relatives over. Maybe because we live in the metro and all the rest were staying in Dumaguete. Either way, I keep on seeing those aunts in TV shows that are cool and just weird. I think I’m gonna be one of those cool aunts at home with some weird funk.

Friend: Is that your drawing?

Me: Yes. I tried and I failed.

Friend: Cute! Even the colors! I’ll show it to my daughter later. I told her you’re an artist. Now she sees you like a saint now.

Me: I do sign autographs for 50 bucks.

Sad

Koji: Ok. You’re sad. Let’s go out.
Me: Huh? Me? I’m not sad.
Koji: Really?
Me: No. Am just extra snippy.
Koji: Let’s go on a date.
Me: Ha-ha-ha.
Koji: No. Really. A real date.
Me: No way. Though can we go out and have a nice dinner out. Oh I want to dine open air see the stars and all that. I want wine. Vino! And I want a good serving of ice cream. Oh I am still accepting Valentines gift. I always fancied a set of silver rings. It’s not that expensive. Thank you, Koji-san!
Koji: You’re right. You’re not sad.

The Loving Room

If you’ve read my previous post, you prolly have an idea about this mystery am trying to crack down.

I couldn’t stop thinking about it then, that I asked my colleague right away.

 

Me: See the whitish thing? Been renting in SG. I think every place I rent has those loop things that I don’t get it!

Colleague: My house doesn’t have.

Me: You got the house brand new right?

Colleague: No. I’m like the third owner. Your landlord probably use it to hang some chandelier maybe.

Me: But two? And always not in the middle?

Colleague: If you want to hang a chandelier or some kind of lighting fixtures, I know they need to have that kind of a loop.

Me: But why there?

Colleague: This is bedroom or loving room?

Me: I’m single. There’s no loving room here. I f there is, only the pillow to drool on!

Such a mystery

Family Planning

pregnancy

Colleague: How was the holidays? So what did you do with your kids?
Me: Kids? Oh I don’t have kids. I’m happy being single.
Colleague: Don’t say that. You’re going to regret it.
Me: Maybe. But I thought about it and Immaculate Concepcion really doesn’t fit me.
Colleague: Ha? You should start planning for a family.
Me: Oh yeah. I have a plan. I’m going to the forest with a ball and catch me one of those Pokemon.

This is what you get for working in a very family oriented office.

Jaundice

When I was diagnosed with the gallstones, I had to admit… It was a rather interesting ride. There was a mix of feeling the danger, the pampering and even the down right craziness of drinking apple juice, my father “doting” on me, and trying to dodge the good stuff namely meat,  dairy product and any fried oily food.

One time, I couldn’t help it. After going for a good week or two being a “good girl”, I thought…. Time to treat myself. I convinced the house help to steam corned beef for me. Having it not fried should be good right?

Just a little bit. A wee bit. 

Just a tiny.

Spoonful or two… of meat with a lot of rice. 

Of course my delight for having that cheat lunch had its consequences within 12 hours. When I went to the washroom, my urine was dark brown in color. Signs of jaundice.

Generally thinking jaundice is a sign that your liver is in trouble. Having had gallstones, my liver and my gallbladder was easily in pain. Symptoms of jaundice includes fever, yellowing of skin and/or eyes, and/or urine turning dark as tea.

Confabulations 4: Working with the Infrastructure Team

[Talking in MS’ cube]
Me: MS, I’m testing out a building block and didn’t receive an email. Can you help me out to check if the SMTP relay is good?
MS: Can.
BB: [Passes by the corridor with his big mug] No he won’t. He will if…. if you ask nicely.
Me: [Whips my head back to MS with no hesitation] PLEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASsssssseeee?
BB: How can you resist that face?

Yeah working with the Infrastructure Team is so much fun fun.

Wow. It astounds me how long since my last update and frankly it’s like a big “Shame on you” as well.

Confabulations 2: The bundle package

Koji: Where are you? I was at the parking and you never replied.
Me: Dude, I was stuck 30 minutes delayed from flight, 30 minutes waiting for a parking space for the plane and a frigging hour for our luggage.
Koji: LOL. Good thing I didn’t go up.
Me: Why? You finally delivering your funeral invitation?
Koji: No. Christmas present.
Me: Ooooh! Let me guess? Cheap?
Koji: Yes.
Me: That’s what I get for being 3 actual friends rolled into 1 for you don’t I?
Koji: Yes. Rule of economics. You’re the bundle plan.
