I have a theory right now that the north american immune system differs from the indonesian immune system since Firda has a coughing cold and thankfully I haven’t caught it yet. Fingers crossed – knock on wood – no walking under ladders etc. etc.. Or maybe I haven’t caught it because I’ve been taking proactive measures (ie. plying myself with Vitamin C and Echinacea).
I also found out that Durians are the worst smelling fruit on the face of the earth. Or at least the durian candies Firda brought me are quite horrible. I can see the “rotting onions” analogy. Plus the taste stays in your mouth for hours. Horrible horrible stuff.
So we ended up sleeping most of yesterday away. Too tired to do anything. Firda woke up around 5 in the morning and had breakfast. I fell asleep while she ate and woke up close to 9:30. We got up. Had something more to eat and then Firda got tired again so we went back to bed and didn’t get up until close to 5:00 pm, which really screwed my system up. We then went for a drive to see the autumn colours (since they don’t get the colour changes in Indonesia) and then off to dinner at Swiss Chalet. After dinner we went home and watched a bunch of TV (including half of Cold Case, Desperate Housewives and a show about Noah and the flood on TLC). Then off to bed again.
Today we are on a mission to find some good cough medicine and a heavier coat for her. Hope everyone else is having a good Monday. Ciao.
