BitterSweet Pain

For durian lovers whose age are 40 over, let me give you one advice... don'tever eat durians if your stomach is not filled with food yet.. in other words, don't eat with an empty stomach or hungry stomach, like I did....

We had a durian fest in the office the other day during lunch time. ON that particular day, I didn't take lunch, just breakfast... and I ended up taking 5 or 6 seeds of durians, not too many, right?

Well, the next thing I know, ie after two hours, I felt something not right at my back ... A sharp pain jabbing me behind the left side of my back..... OUCh...!!! The pain seemed to be here and there... I quickly asked my colleague to massage my back.... (Gouri, if you are reading this, terima kasih ah.... ) She told me that was angin (wind) and she did a good job with her powerful hands, only sounds of Ooww.... OOOWWWWwww was heard....

THIS IS CALLED BITTERSWEET PAIN.......


one lesson learnt..


eat durians only after meals..
and not when hungry...

  6. Hello Claire, about your question on paying post....if i were you, NO. You will have a hard time asking for the payment. I delete my account from them. I have already $52 which they keep on changing the maximum payout. from 25 to 50 and now 100. My friend has $200 plus yet they did not pay her for six months. She had to complain many times to pay pal. She got paid though. But, if you take the risk, its up to you. Again, i delete my account and the post i made from them. My $52 is gone too.

  8. Ouch, but you know what some doctors are advicing the public to eat fruits with empty stomach, their reason for that is , the fruits works to detoxify our body and so it is best if taken before lunch.

  9. Wait a minute, you ate five or six seeds? And they are those large looking things in the fruit you are showing? No wonder you had pain. And when you said wind, do you mean gas in your intestines? I would think something that large and nutty like just might cause that. LOL

    amy: in that case, i will give up too.. wasted efforts! LOL....


    elin: shhhhh... dont let boss know!


    Yen: depends on which type of fruit, this king fruit is something not to be taken empty stomach and so is the jackfruit, they cause u to bloat up :p


    patty: 6 seeds meant the small ones inside not the big huge thing with thorns, wow, i could never finish 6 durians in one go.. the most 5 to 6 seeds, yes.. they r yummy! but face the consequences after that... not happen to all, but to certain ppl like me..

    ReplyDelete
  19. Voon: to me lar, i must eat something first before eating durians, maybe my bfast was digested when i took the durians thus causing pain in my back...


    Loo: i m sure your stomach was still filled with food when u ate durians for lunch and dinner.. i know u love those, right? furthermore, u r younger ma... *wink*


    lynette: yes, durian is king of fruits, normally grown in tropical countries only.. it smells good to most and smells like shit to others.. hahaha...


    housewife: yes, that i know.. sure die one? hahaha.. who dare to try!!


    misterdicious: i wonder what happens when i m in 50s.. something new might crop up.. :p


    cheryl: it is a thorny fruit, hard shell, u need a big knife to pry it open and when it does, u get all those yellowish seeds inside and u put them into your mouth and said.. "hmmmmmm... yummm!" or... "URGH!! GET THAT AWAY FROM ME!!!"
    LOL.....


    Kadazanman: open windows wide wide and after one night, no more.. wind has blown them away.. and wait for another day when someone brings them to the office again.. hahhaaa...
