Got bitten by a relative’s horse recently after taking a selfie with it. Laceration on my right arm. I ended up at a Malaysian polyclinic for treatment.
The medical service in Singapore is very slow. So you’d expect Malaysia to be much slower. I mean really sloooooooow, plus their reputation for being too lax.
But I got the surprise of my life. I walked into a crowded polyclinic in a small Malaysian town. Lots of patients already. The staff seemed very calm (humored by my incident, of course).
So I registered, got an injection,met the doctor, ended up in another room for a dressing, got some medication after — and I was out in less than half hour. I guess they won’t cast me as the next Lone Ranger.
I had a George Costanza moment just now. I was at the supermarket buying some stuff. As I headed to the cashier’s counter, this woman rushes up from my right and shoves a pram with a baby in front of me to cut the queue. She almost ran over my foot.
I stood there for a few seconds, and then went to the next counter, which unfortunately was closed. Lucky me, another cashier came, removed the sign on the conveyer belt, and offered to serve me.
For centuries, people have sacrificed their lives for land. Poets have glorified battles and wars. Names have been enshrined in history books. Adventurers have achieved greatness by climbing mountains, travelling the seven seas, defying gravity by sending man to the moon and beyond — and then this little person pops up out of nowhere and thinks she’s made a difference to the world by cutting me at the cashier’s counter.
You may have won this round today, sweetie. But I’ll be waiting for you next time.
