P/s: Woi...it's time to wake up liao. Time to cook for the dinner lor.
On the very next morning, I started to feel very cold even though I was wearing a jacket and covered by 2 blankets. My whole body was very aching and that was when the fever started again. I took the medicine every 4 hours again and managed to control the fever. At one time, I did not take panadol after 4 hours, I started to get the fever again.
This made LKC very worried as the doctor told me to monitor myself for the next 48hours as it might be dengue fever. LKC brought me to visit the doctor again at 9 something on Saturday night and the doctor suggested to take a blood test. So he took some blood sample and sent it to the lab. I had to pay RM85 to send the blood sample to the Gribbles as the ING card that I have only cover blood test during office hour. So I will have to wait until Monday if I want it to be covered by ING. LKC said better not waiting and agreed to pay RM85 for the blood test.
Early Sunday morning, the fever did not subside. LKC called to the clinic to find out the test result. Thank God, it was not dengue positive. The report shows that the white blood cells count was high, which means that it was bacteria infection. LKC brought me to the clinic again as my situation became worse, I was still having fever even after taking the medicine. At the clinic, I told the doctor that I want faster recovery and I don't want to take any more medicines as it made me really blur. So the doctor gave me an antibiotics injection and told me that I should be fine.
My nightmare began after taking the injection, my body started to reject any liquid intake and I kept vomiting even with little slip of water to quench my thirst. My fever became higher again and LKC was so worried. He called the doctor again and the doctor suggested to pay him a visit again. When I arrived at the clinic again (in less than 2 hours), the doctor checked on my temperature and suggested me to go to the hospital. He prepared a referral letter together with the blood test report.
LKC quickly drove me to Damansara Specialist Hospital at TTDI and dropped me at the A&E ward. Upon arriving at the A&E, the nurse checked on my temperature, blood pressure and some "history" of my sickness. After that, I was checked by a GP and went through the "history" again with me and suggested that I should be hospitalised. I was put on drip and it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo painful. I cried when the nurse tried to poke the plastic tube to my hand. I was too afraid to take anymore injection because the antibiotic injection that the doctor poked on my butt earlier was super painful and not to forget the blood test. I didn't have any choice as I had to be on drip and that's the only way.
Then the nurse injected me with another medication that could stop my vomiting and asked me to take some panadols. I was lying at the A&E for almost half an hour while waiting for the ward arrangement. After sending me to the ward, I was too tired and dozed off. LKC took the opportunity to go home to take his shower, packed some necessities like food, drinks, laptop (to watch movie), my pillow and some books to kill off our time. The doctor paid me a visit at around 4 something and checked on my condition. He spent less than 5 minutes talking to me and checking on my throat.
Throughout my hospitalization, I had 4 injections of antibiotics, 1 blood test (again, this morning), 1 injection of the medicine that stopped the vomiting, 1 injection of flush, 3 bags of the sodium/ glucose water, had infinity times of diarrhea. Yes I had to bring the drip up and down whenever I needed to go to toilet.

I was quite hungry when we arrived at Pavillion so was walking around to find something to satisfy my hunger. I had already tried the JCo Donuts and I have already given up by just looking at the queue. There is this entry in KYSpeaks that talks about the John King Egg Tart at Pavillion so we decided to give it a try. The queue at the John King stall was long too but not as long as JCo of course.
There have around 6 flavours for the egg tarts like original, corn, durian, custard, green tea and red beans. People always say that original is always the best and looking at the different "weird" flavours that they have, we decided to try on the original flavour. The original egg tart costs RM1.60 each while the 'weird' flavours cost RM2.00 each, if I'm not mistaken. We also bought a box of lou phor peng, costs RM5.50 for 4 pieces. Other than that, they also serve chicken pie and siew pau.
I'm not a big fan of egg tart, but I would still have it even though I don't eat egg (yolk to be more specified) at all. I found that this egg tart...don't get misunderstood...it didn't taste super good. In fact, I found that it wasn't tasty at all.
Maybe I put too high of expectation on it...if you can read Chinese, they named themselves as 香港蛋塔王 (Hong Kong Tan Tart Wong - King of Egg Tart) somemore since 1965. The egg tart is tasteless and the crust is...tasteless also. I feel that the egg tart that my mum bought from the market, which only costs RM0.60 is even nicer than that.

For the dinner, we ordered 2 BBQ sets (well, that's the minimum order for BBQ). We ordered deung-shim and mok-sal. Deung-shim is non-marinated tender and thin sliced beef rib eye, while mok-sal is non-marinated pork.
For starter, we were served with a bowl of soup each. Not sure what is the name of the soup but I felt that the soup is a bit too hot, not the boiling type of hot...it's the pepper-ish hot. LKC likes the soup very much.
As usual, we were served with different types of refillable side dishes include different type of kim chis, salad, anchovies and some vegies.
While we were enjoying the side dishes, the waiter barbequed the meat for us. We were taught on how to eat the bbq meat on our very first visit to the same restaurant at Taipan, USJ. First, place a "piece" of vegetable (sang choy) on your plate. Then dip the bbq meat with the sesame oil. Next scope a spoon of rice and some marinated spring onion on the vegie as well. Next, dip the barbequed garlic with the Korean teochew sauce. Finally, wrap all the ingredients with the vegie and put it into your mouth and enjoy.
For dessert, we were served with watermelon and a bowl of some red dates soup. The watermelon that they served is always sweet, no matter how plain the watermelon is.
The overall rating for this meal was awesome. The total bill for the meal was around RM110 - RM68 for the beef and RM27 for the pork, with 5% government tax and 10% service charge.

After snaping a few pictures we proceded upstairs for our dinner. There were 4 of us so we ordered 4 dishes. Steam pak soo kong, crispy chicken, vegetable and 4 hairy crabs. The hairy crabs comes in 3 sizes termed by their prices, RM38, RM48 and RM58. We took the RM58 crab but it is not really big in size, much smaller than the normal meat crabs.
After the process
Ok......it's time to eat............actually I enjoyed the crabs much...it was sweet and juicy. The yolk was fabulous. Too bad LPC didn't like it.....well I did not expect her to like it as she usually eats the claws and nothing else...........yolk is not her fav. I managed to coax her to finish it as it was expensive. We were all served a cup of ginger wine. I don't know what was the purpose but it tasted good.
