July 4 - Memorable day

Yesterday morning, I went our earlier as I wanted to see a doctor about my trigger thumb. I have this problem for almost a week and I feel rather uncomfortable. At the same time, I wanted to have a full body blood test and not forgetting a pap smear too.

When I reached the clinic, I realised that I would definitely have to wait long so I decided to go to the post office. I had already got ready the parcels to be posted. So off  I went to the post office and went straight to the stamps section. I came to realise that oversea postage has gone up so as to give better service. In that sense, parcels should reach the recipients much faster.

When I was done with the parcels, I went back to the clinic. Goodness! I still had to wait. When it's my turn, I told the doctor about my intention to do a blood test after he had examined my thumb. So he tried to put the needle into my vein but unsuccessful. It was only the third tries that he managed to draw my blood into three small test tubes.

Then I had to get out from the room and waited again for my turn to do the pap smear after I had given my sample urine for the test. Next, I was called into another room. I had no fear of the pap smear test and it was easily done.

I was given some medication for my trigger thumb problem. Immediately, I went straight to work. Not long after some time, I had a parcel from the courier man. I had redeemed my very first smart phone from Maybank TreatsPoints. It's from SuperBuy and I had used up 370K points for the phone and 28.8K for the flip cover. I have the black phone and match it with the pink cover.

 
I 'heart' Samsung Galaxy S4!

  1. Press hard on the joint between your thumb and palm for a couple of minutes.Ignore the excruciating paint and you will be fine after a couple of pressing.

    1. I used to courier but it's very expensive. If it's really important/fragile, I will usually send by courier. If it's just a normal parcel, I can sent it by normal registered post which is safer than just normal post.
