Wahlaueh, chicken pox is excruciating, especially when you are nearing 40 years old. I was practically under "house arrest" for 3 weeks. Can't go out of the house, just stayed at home and "eat porridge", literally.
Worse, I got the pox over the CNY holidays. No kueh kapet, no bahulu, no cookies... and no blackjack! Suffer man. ;)
Every time my toddler SueAnne saw me, she would point at my face and ask, "Pain ah?". Yes, I would reply. Then she would point to my arm, "Pain ah?". Yes, pain pain. Then, almost always, she would poke at one of the spots on my leg, "Pain ah?". Ouch! Yes, Pain Pain! "Oh... pain pain ah?" *pengsan*
FYI, I got the chicken pox from the girls. First was Suzanne followed by SueAnne, where the latter's was very very mild. The doctor did say that chicken pox is kind to the kids but to adults like me, well, just have to TOUGH it out.
So, how's the Buaya face now? Marked with lots of scars and craters.
Now, please excuse me while I ransack Mrs B's dressing table for that bottle of NuSkin :P
