Visiting A Chinese Tabib

Few months ago I realized that I kept on sneezing hard whenever I took the morning shower. Accompanying that sneezing would be plenty of mucus which I can’t help but to blow my nose to clear them off. And with excessive and continuous nose blowing, it somehow affected my inner right ear.

Upon visiting the doctor and after taking some anti-histamine and antibiotics for my ear, I’ve stopped sneezing during the morning shower. The mucus too has reduced so much that I need not blow my nose that often anymore.

That made me think I may have sinusitis.

Last night when I was wandering around to look for a new casual shoe (for the first time in my life, my shoe was stolen from the mosque), I went to see a traditional Chinese medical practitioner we here call tabib.

From the advertisement outside the door, this tabib claims he can help with sinusitis problems.

At least I have another reference to go if Western medical practitioners fail to help diagnose or cure any diseases I may have in the future.

So I went to see him, sat down and started to tell him about my based-on-real-story sinusitis drama. He then checked my eye balls, and also my pulses at both wrists. Here’s his conclusions:

Basically you have a strong body. Everything looks fine. But, your lungs are a bit weak. That’s why you started to feel sneezy when it is cold. It makes your nose a little bit sensitive too. But it’s ok. You have two choices now.

First, we have a special herbs medicine to strengthen your lungs. No worries, these are all from plants and herbs, not from animal extracts.

Your second option is to start doing more exercise lah. That will also make your lungs stronger.

Hmm, all this while I thought I’ve already done enough exercise (if not excessive).

Looks like it's time to shift into another gear! Vroom vroom…

errr do more exercise? your exercises now are already more than the average person! i'd be a be skeptical with his recommendations but then again no harm trying the herbs I guess.

or maybe he meant lung exercises? swim more!!!

Yim,
Itulah pasal.. luckily i was not wearing any finishers tee last night.
Next time i go visit him, i gantung 5 6 medal kat leher sebagai hint.. hehehe.
Yes i know. My goggles have not touched the pool water since before Raya.

Ray,
Ntah2 tabib tu salah sorang peserta TNF100 solo haritu kot.. we never know.. right?

ian yusof said...

he's right. you need to do more exercise. and the only way for you to do it is to quit your job lah.

p/s - tabib tuh buat cerita dongeng jer...

..::EnAikAY::.. said...

Ian,
I quit my job, and become a tabib, is that what you meant?

Zack Yui said...

Apa salahnya, lu pon ada gaya jadik tabib.
Bapak Ray itu gayanya kepingin sekali mau bikin TNF...

Khairul Anuar said...

Hang jadi tabib, kitorang datang ramai2. Haha. Betul tu, pi buat sundown and then TNF solo. Nik buleyyy!

Zack, aku rasa Ray tu dah kena pacat tu. Hang jadi partner dia la no...

ian yusof said...

No, what I mean is that he quit his job so that he let you exercise so that later on, he can take over your job so that yim can tak over his tabib job, while the rest of the people can keep on exercising. get it? waitaminute, what's your job then? conpius conpius ...
