See how swollen my eyes are in this photo
Then I had to call for assistance. My angel of mercy came in the form of Lai Yoong, who rushed over to my place in about five minutes. She suggested I go to to the doctors but I said to send me to uncle's house.
So off we went to uncle's place which was actually very near to mine. I couldn't make the trip on my own as I could hardly see. I even had to wear sunglasses at home.
There we had to wait another 15 minutes for Uncle Cheong who had gone out to get some stuff from the hardware shop. Then he began to put his Tui Na skills to work on me. He told me that I had lots of heat and wind trapped inside. The horrible pain left me after he worked his magic. There was still a hint of pain but that was bearable.
Lai Yoong made sure I had breakfast first before she sent me home at 11 a.m. with advice to rest and drink lots of water. Feeling spent from my ordeal, I curled up in my sofa with the lights off and the air conditioning on at full blast, I slept until 2.30 p.m. When I awoke there was no more pain and I was feeling energised. See I can even write about it now.
