First Taste of Chocolate

Today I had my first taste of real chocolate in many, many years. Dad recently went to Hatyai and took the opportunity to get a few duty-free chocolate bars to tempt me. Due to my recurring tonsilitis I have had to swear off chocolate forever (even Milo!) but in my sudden joy of returning home I gulped 2 squares of chocolate down. And the taste was....

...chocolatey. I didn't really enjoy it because I was chewing it as fast as possible - afraid that my tonsils will somehow recognize the presence of the offending substance and swell to the size of Pamela's boobs. If I don't get sore throat after 2 days I will have another piece of sinful, fattening chocolate.

When that happens, I will have truly come home.

I'm a tonsilitis victim as well... I am so madly in love with Ruffles, Lay's and everything FRIED that I had to see a doctor every single month... and once till I landed in the hospital for 5 days due to 8 days of fever no thanks to it. :|

The ENT said I had no choice, but to cut off the tonsils cos they've been swelling up every other month till it had no chance to shrink back to its original size ever again... Eep.

I stuck with my decision not to have them removed. I cut down on fried food and Ruffles drastically. I use mouth wash that don't sting and gurgle every nite (even till today). Today, I am proud to say that my tonsils are back to their original size and I can continue indulging in sinful fried stuff... Mmm... not over indulge, of course...

Try the mouthwash... they really help.
