Gustatory desires

It is almost half past four in the morning and I am still awake. I can even hear the clock's tick tack. So as the borborygmi sounds of my stomach---rambling and gurgling. A sign of an empty stomach. As a matter of fact, I really want to satisfy my carnivorous desire for red meat. I am also craving for prawns. As much as I want to get up and look for something to eat inside the fridge, I simply couldn't because I am sick.

For the past 3 days until this very moment, I am barking like a dog. I'm having a terrible cough that I couldn't ingest properly. I mean, not enough to satisfy my gustatory desires for some solid food. What I have had for the past 3 days were soups and something soft. I've tried to eat a piece of steak yesterday but it caused a lot of vagal stimulation. I ended up coughing continuously for almost 20 minutes followed by vomiting. 

Since I couldn't satisfy my gustatory needs, I ended up looking at these photos and imagine how scrumptious these steak and prawns are. Actually, what I am taking right now is a piece of bread with warm tea. I'll be perfectly fine imagining my bread is a piece of steak. Yeah, right.

To my bloggie friends, please excuse me if I don't get to visit your pages often. As soon as I feel better, I will try my best to drop by and catch up with you guys.


  1. always best to let sleeping dogs lie, when the stomac is not well - well leave it be - the cough and phlem production never help swallowing. Yea, i am recommending the liquid diet (for nutrition) until you feel better. feel better soon!

  2. Thanks for dropping by Joe and thanks for the wishes too. I've been to Al Muawaiji Clinic today. The doctor prescribed Augmentin for 7days.

  3. hi nakakagutom ang blog post mo na to. masarap ba food sa chopsticks at how much price range?

    1. Hi Larla. Thanks for dropping by. Masarap ang food nila at affordable naman ang price. Masarap silang magluto ng mga fried rice, prawns at soup. Sabi ko nga kay hubby balik kami one of these days :)
