My Time Capsule: China: Survived the Dengue Fever


China: Survived the Dengue Fever

China, July 2010

The route was Indonesia - Singapore - HK - Yunnan - HK - Singapore - Indonesia.
It was supposed to be a fun holiday but the nightmare started just 1 day before departure date. 
I was diagnosed with dengue fever. I don't know why mosquitoes seems to love me too much. In 2009 I've also got dengue fever and typhoid fever that I have to stay in hospital for 9 days.
My doctor strongly advised to cancel my trip. But my stubborn Dad said that I've survived before and I will too this time :p

So there I was jetting off to HK  through Singapore. Then another nightmare came when we were in the airport, my sister started to feel sick. Later on we found out that she has also caught dengue fever.
Cool !!! my family starting the holiday with combo 2 dengue fever victims :(
So as soon as we arrived in HK, we were rushed to hospital to do another blood test. Then both of us had to stay on bed rest, until the day we were scheduled to fly to Yunnan.

Arriving in Yunnan, our condition were getting worse that we couldn't walk from suffering the bone and joint pain. At some point we couldn't breathe and feeling nauseous. So most of the times we sleep in the bus while others were doing sightseeing with the group.
Here are some pictures I managed to take when I was feeling better........

tiny cabins without glass window, you can feel the wind and rain.....quite scary I would say

I didn't have any pictures of Hong Kong, unfortunately. But I was happy to stay at Swissotel the Stamford Hotel in Singapore. The view from our room balcony was breathtaking.
