CELEBRATING EXISTENCE| SHARING MY STORIES SINCE 2012 | INFINITELY GRATEFUL

Never forget that excruciating pain... #pansitpamore



Dahil hindi raw kumpleto ang isang buwan ko kung walang dramaramaramrama... kakaloka tayo, life noh?

Nov. 24, 2015 - Hurriedly went home since my Nanay texted me that we had Pansit Malabon at home. I ate that for dinner, even gave our neighbor one plateful. (Note: I am not a pansit person. The only two types of pansit that make me crave are Lucky Me Pansit Canton and Pansit Malabon. Imagine my excitement because I am only able to eat Pansit Malabon once in a blue moon. lol)

Nov. 25, 2015 at 3 AM-ish (3 AM-ish talaga, Tin?!) - I woke up because of severe stomach pain. Nakiramdam what kind of pain was that, sobrang sakit lang, hindi ko alam kung ano. Shemay. Maya-maya pang-CR na. (Pasintabi po. Dami ko pa naman resto reviews.) Thought it ended there? No. I went back to vomit, then went back for another.... :(( I looked at the mirror and I was so pale to the point that it was scary already.

Buti kung 'yun lang eh but no. I wasn't able to go back to sleep because of the terrible stomach pain I had. I was also sweating but I was feeling cold. Kind of Reminded me of Mt. Pulag kasi akala ko OA na 'yung na-experience namin nung gabi, meron pa palang mas OA na experience dun which is ito na nga - walang idea kung gano katagal eh, ramdam na ramdam pa 'yung pain. Best in Experience talaga every November. Sana next November din. Hihi. Pero sana mas magandang experience naman... fall... autumn... hihihi.


Nov. 25, 2015 after getting some sleep- Spent the whole day in bed. Stomach pain was reduced but in exchange, I had headache and body pain throughout the day. I couldn't even bend my knees and elbows because of the muscle and joint pains. So ganon ang feeling ng may mga arthritis. Oh wells...

Nov. 26, 2015 - Head still thumps and there are still stomach cramps especially when standing but I am feeling a whole lot better. Nag breakfast na nga ko ng bacon eh at nakapag-blog pa 'ko akalain mo 'yon. Grabe. Di kaya ako naka-kain kahapon.


I searched for the Facebook page of tooooot and I was supposed to send them a private message to tell them our concern (Since hindi lang ako kundi lahat kaming kumain. Magkakaiba lang ng degree of pain.) but I saw a comment there and what they experienced was the same with ours so sumagot na lang ako dun sa convo. It's because we are in the same industry that I am not being hysterical about this nor am I making this a big deal - tagal din nila inalagaan 'yung reputasyon na 'yon e saka sobrang dali kasing makasira ng kung anuman pwedeng mabasa sa internet kaya hindi ko na papangalanan. Also, I am considering the experience as a reminder that safety and sanitation are very important in food preparation. You'll never know eh. The food wasn't spoiled. It tasted the same with the first time I ate it. Proud na proud pa kong sabihin na one of the best 'yon kasi na-feature na sila on different tv programs such as Jessica Soho and KrisTV. Tapos, one of the best pain we'll ever experience pala. Hihi. Unforgettable nga at namigay pa ko ng isang platong foodborne illness. 'Yan ang  sobrang generous, pati sakit e ipinapamigay.  Hahaha!! 

I don't think I would ever crave for Pansit Malabon again. Ka-trauma. Buti na lang may Lucky Me, Sotanghon at Japchae pa! hehe. May chance pa sa long life! haha. Ngayon pa baaaaa. 


Here's to surviving the food poisoning ordeal!
Woooo. I made it through the rain pain I can stand up once again... *insert Mariah Carey's "Through The Rain"*
Nga pala, laking tulong talaga ng Human Heart Nature balm for all seasons kahit kelan sa sobrang sakit naubos ko isang lalagyan nang hindi ko namalayan, ng buko juice, ng Psyllium fiber na dahil regular naman akong may intake e mas appreciated ko pa, ng erceflora, ng biogesic (loyal kay Lloydie!) ng oil galing Regina Institute of Contemplation in Asia (halatang ritwal ang naging sandigan ehehe!) saka ng prayers shempre. huhuhu. 



Again, I am not writing this to complain but because of gladness that we were able to recover fast (with that degree of pain, understatement ang glad) and because I want to remind everyone that we all have our roles in keeping our food safe. And, hopefully for us there would be no further complications. 


For us, food handlers, may we able to come up with better food-handling practices so as not to repeat what had happened. We should really pay close attention in all steps of the food preparation. 

For us, consumers, may we more vigilant and only eat food that nourish us. Although hindi ko rin alam kung paano, may we stay away from contaminated food all the time.

At pang Ms. Universe: Hoping for a world where everyone has access to clean food and drinks, and proper nutrition.




Seryoso, napaisip talaga ko kahapon nung sobrang sakit ng tiyan ko kung parusa na ba sa'kin 'yon kasi kain ako ng kain pero naisip ko ngayon na hindi naman siguro, nagkataon lang. Alam mo na, for more life lessons. Haha. ktnxbye. :))))
