[077] Male Primitive Instincts? 男性原始反應?

I don't understand why middle-aged men like AKB48 that much(especially when that annoying girl imitates their fashion), so I interviewed Kelvin and got this answer about pure male primitive instinct to go after girls once they're fertile. Of course in the animal world, males will go for anything right? But due to our cultural norms, some men just feel that liking little girls (sexually) just doesn't sound right. So do you like little girls or mature sexy women?

[075] Disposable mask nightmare 口罩惡夢的真相

After a session of torturous tube insertion through my nostrils into my stomach to extract fluid to see if there's any Tuberculosis bacteria, I had this nightmare on that night + choking mucus (or was it actually the sticky local anesthetic cream). Whatever it is, I woke up startled and glad that it was finally over. No TB bacteria found! But if the small shadow in my lung doesn't disappear 2 weeks later, I think I'll have more nightmares.

[074] Japanese Doctors Worst Case Scenario 日本醫生的終極審判

After talking with a few friends about their experiences with Japanese doctors, we concluded that doctors in Japan always provide the worst case "death" scenario and recommends you to do all sorts of testing to make sure that you are okay. So after taking my blood, phlegm/saliva and gastric fluid, they found no Tuberculosis bacteria and the new hypothesis to explain my small lung shadow had became a case of mild bronchitis or pneumonia. Whatever it is, I still need to return for another xray two weeks later to see if the shadow in my lung disappeared or grown. GREAT! No results after so many tests and scans for 2-3 weeks. Get insurance if you come to Japan, you'll NEED it!

[073] Importance of Insurance 保險的重要

Doctors never know how much each medicine, scan, test or surgery costs! But they're good at recommending you to take a lot of them. Health is important, what to do!?

[072] Life can be like anything, even a toilet bowl...人生就像一個馬桶啊...

Life is like a toilet bowl... you never know what kind of shit you're gonna get.
But my friend suggested that I should think more positively so... I came out with a 2nd edition:

Life is like an iPhone, always in need of somebody to "touch" constantly.

So I may have Tuberculosis!? 我可能有肺癆?

After my first Japanese doctor visit, I became better and better until one week later, my throat began to hurt again. Maybe I didn't rest well and was too busy with the scholarship activities and school so I had high fever again. This time I went to the neighborhood clinic.
上次看完醫生後,感覺病情有好轉。但是可能沒好好休息的關係,所以一週後又感到喉嚨特別疼痛,又發高燒了。這次到了宿舍附近的診所去檢察。

With much amazement, the doctor insisted that I take an xray because it's unusual to reach 39 degrees for a common cold/flu, so he wanted to test if I had pneumonia. Ok, an xray it is... Based on the xray, he said that there's a faint shadow on my lungs and requested me to return 3 days later when there is another doctor that specializes in respiratory system. He gave me some antibiotics and told me not to worry as it may be nothing after all.
意外的是...醫生竟然堅持我照X光,因為感冒卻發燒39度是非比尋常的,所以可能是肺炎。照完後,醫生說X光片有出現一點奇怪的影子,然後告訴我3天後再來,因為到時會有一名呼吸器官專科的醫生。給了我4天的抗生素之後,告訴我不要太擔心,可能沒什麼。

I returned 3 days later, slightly better because I finally took 2 days off to rest from everything. But the new doctor insisted that I take another xray again! Ok... fine, you're the doctor. But this time, he said that the shadow appeared to be slightly growing and was 100% sure that I'm not suffering from  common cold/flu but possibly TUBERCULOSIS. God...
3天後,因為終於挖出2天休息,所以感覺好了一點。但是新醫生卻說又要照X光!?照了第二次,他說我的影子竟然擴大了,所以絕對不是普通感冒這麼簡單。有可能是...肺癆!?

So he wrote me a reference letter to a nearby hospital to refer to a specialist to do a CTscan. Wow...
Well, at least a CTscan will know exactly what I'm suffering from I guess? But when I reached there, the doctors preferred  me to do a phlegm test for 3 times in separate days to determine if I am TB positive. By then, my phlegm had somehow dwindled, and only managed to cough up a bit of saliva through a smoking device. The results were out 2 hours later, negative. BUT! It doesn't mean that I don't have TB, I need to do 2 more tests just to make sure.
真是夠... ... 好吧,為了安心,只好乖乖地拿他的介紹信去大醫院接受CT掃描,至少應該會知道病因是什麼吧?可是到了那裡之後,醫生卻要求我做痰的檢驗,而且得做3次!每次隔幾天。我的媽丫~那時的痰比較少了,所以叫我呼吸一種煙來促使咳嗽。不好意思...就是沒痰了,所以只好給一些口水拿去檢察。2個鐘頭後,檢測不到肺癆的細菌,不過醫生還是說得再檢測2次才可以斷定結果=_=

Next, he wanted me to do an xray again. I asked him, why do xray now since you're already scheduling me to do a CTscan and blood test next week? He paused a while and blabbered some Japanese, but I think it means that if my xrays look ok, then maybe I won't need CTscan after all. Life is frustrating when there's no English speaker in the hospital. Oh... ok, another xray... hmm... 3 xrays in a week, fine, you're the doc. So another xray it is. I guess Japanese likes Xrays...
然後呢,又要我去照X光。我問他...都安排我下個禮拜二做CT掃描和血液檢察了,幹嘛還要照X光啊?他猶豫了一下,然後迅速噼哩啪啦了幾句日文。靠~大醫院怎麼沒人會講英文啊?我想...含義可能是說假如X光沒問題的話,可能就不用做CT掃描了???靠!一週做3次X光,日本人很喜歡X光吧?

So next Tuesday, I MIGHT (because Japanese are never 100% committed unless all possible tests are conducted) know if I have TB, pneumonia, lung cancer or common flu/cold. They are also scheduling me to do a blood test and the 2nd phlegm test. I better recover fast this weekend!!!!!!!!!
所以下個禮拜二有可能知道結果吧?(日本人喜歡用“可能”,因為在所有檢測完以前,都不敢斷定...都是可能性!)到底我是什麼病呢?肺癆?肺炎?肺癌?還是普通感冒?希望這週末快點好起來!!!!!!
