CrossIron

CrossIron, the mall where we went yesterday (see related article -> road trip), was our last destination in Alberta, for a last-minute shopping before hitting the road and travelling back home.

It was my lucky day because I found a comfortable shoes that fit my sensitive and tiny feet in the womens’ section! Whoa! That’s a feat! I normally go to the children and teens section to find my size. I bought discounted Puma sneakers (50% off) and Nine West sandal (around 40% off). Not bad eh? Considering that my shoes are retiring and badly need a replacement.

You may find it difficult to believe but I’m not a shopaholic. :p I only own less than 10 pair of shoes, I rarely buy clothes, shoes, bags, and whatnots. These are usually given to me as gifts. My Majestic Mom and gorgeous “sister”, Yayi, loves to pamper me with these kind of stuff (Merci Beaucoup Majestic Mom and Fashionista Yayi!).

lemon & ginger

I’ve always hated long and winding road because it makes me feel terribly dizzy and it triggers the “anacondas’” in my stomach to do a somersault. Result? Vomitting.  I used to puke everytime we travel to Baguio City* when I was a kid. And I definitely detest the aftermath feeling. Darn! Just by writing this paragraph makes me sick. Arghhh!
(TheCuriousMe Note: Baguio City is the Summer Capital of the Philippines.)

Now, why am I yakking about this bus and vomit thingy? Well, it seems like they implemented a new bus timing in which I’m not aware of. As a result, I “accidentally” rode the bus that took the long route. That timeslot was suppose to be the for “short route” bus that I normally take. Serves me right for not checking. Grrrr! There were so many left and right turns that it felt like I was travelling in a zigzag road!

By the time I reached the office, I was “super duper mega over” dizzy and I already felt like puking. No, I did not go directly to the bathroom. Instead, I immediately went to the kitchen area to prepare hot ginger and lemon tea to drink.

I felt miraculously better after sipping the contents of the cup. It’s even better than sniffing white flower (a.k.a ammonia) or taking biogesic or panadol. Hmmm… They said this is good for the voice too. That’s the main reason why I bought it. I never thought it works for “dizzy” and “nearly puking” people as well.

I hope by the time I finish the 24 packs, I will be able to sing one song without a glitch. La la la la la!
