Lau Sai

'Lau Sai' is a word commonly used when a person ate wrong stuff and/or suffered diarrhea if worst case purging. I think it is a Hokkien word. Hmm....sorry, I am not Hokkien but Hakka.

And yes, I am that one person which 'lau sai' two days straight from Tuesday to Wednesday. Things started on Monday when I begin to feel bit sensation inside my stomach. The next day, it progress to spasm and diarrhea. It was darn painful as if the stomach shrink. So took medical leave and see the good panel doctor. I mentioned to him my pain is like my wife labour contraction which I think quite close to it. He then said I got indigestion after checking my stomach. Got a lot of wind too. Gave me several medications and home I when. Unfortunately as evening comes, diarrhea turn to purging. Oh man, my bottom burn! (No, no, I don't need any anus examination by any specialist).

Day two decided to take another medical leave and off I return the good panel doctor. (No choice because the clinic is my company's panel clinic) I said to him now I got purging. He said I got food poisoning possible virus attack too and prescribe me 'lau sai' medication. By the way, the doc is a Malay and he actually said 'lau sai' to me. Things seem improve after taking the newly given medication.

The next day resume work. I still don't quite know what when wrong with my stomach. And I miss my coffee that two days. If you must know, I actually typing this post with one cup full coffee next to me :P

Perhaps the 'dadah' is the culprit since I took one and half cup of Kluang kopi-o. Need to cut down the 'dadah' already. 'Dadah membawa padah'
