I arrived on Monday night, really happy and all. Went for dinner with some of my friends and clients who happen to be there and we went take some pictures around Shanghai.
Then I spent the whole of Tuesday working and on Tuesday night one of my friends who works in Shanghai brought us for oily Sichuan food.
I went to bed thinking that I was going to be fine on Wednesday morning for work again but in the middle of Tuesday night I woke up with a painful stomach ache. I didn't know what was causing it but my body told me that I had to be near a toilet so I rushed into the toilet.
That night I woke up almost every hour to rush to the toilet.
By the end of the night it had finally dawned on me that I was suffering from food poisoning probably from the oily Sichuan dinner.
When Wednesday morning came I was struggling to stay alive. By the time I was up it was near 10.30AM and I knew I had to go to a pharmacy. So I made my way to find a pharmacy and while I was expecting to see a well-stocked pharmacy like this.
Only that the pharmacy I saw was more like some shop with well.. not as much medicine and apparently according to my friends working there, that's how the pharmacies here are like.
So okay I asked for some of the Western medicine that I knew off but they had no clue what it was so I told them that I was suffering from food poisoning and I needed something.
They prescribed these pills for me and I started taking it as they suggested. 3 of these pills 3 times a day.
And guess what, it doesn't seem to work.
It's Friday now and I'll be leaving in a few hours for the airport to head back home and I'm still feeling like shit so that kinda messed up my trip a little.
The good news is that my
See you guys soon.
