10 Feb 2015 – Please Do Not Ever Flare Up Again!
Mon: yeah, the 3 different antibiotics taken last month killed off those H-pylori and hopefully will not be bothered by them again! Coincidently H-pylori was identified by Australian scientists Barry Marshall/1982 who is a good friend of PP&Ian in Perth.
In 1994, the National Institutes of Health (USA) published an opinion stating most recurrent duodenal and gastric ulcers were caused by H-pylori, and recommended antibiotics be included in the treatment regimen.

Another weekend goes by and it was not good timing to video Skype with the grandchildren in USA but at least got to see Olai who was getting ready to watch Dora the Explorer. Look forward to the weekends when I get to see them on my screen.
When tests need to be done at Mt E, have to fast from mid-night until the tests are done, usually between 1000 – 1100hrs the next day. Mornings before 1100hrs are the few times I would set foot in Lucky Plaza Asian Food Mall. This place is usually crowded and on the weekends it is packed with Filipino domestic helpers! Also one of the few places one can find authentic Filipino food!
Plaza SIN deco for the CNY are in full everlasting bloom!
Have always wanted to try the Fruit Paradise****cakes and finally today bought a piece of the cake S$8 with an additional cost of .50c to go. It taste as good as it looks.
Still Alice****Alice, happily married with 3 grown children, is a renowned linguistics professor who starts to forget words. When she receives a devastating diagnosis, Alice and her family find their bonds tested. Julianne Moore’s performances are usually good and this is no exception.
This movie hit a raw nerve, especially the scene when she prepares how the exit when her mind was still more or less in tact. As one gets up in age, more reason to document and update a blog with pix to help with the memory…
Tue: movies seen online the past few days and like Alice, these will soon be forgotten!
2005 AT memories (now this will not be forgotten as long as dementia stays away!) staring with the month of May from GA, NC & TN. Looking forward to planning a short hiking trip on the AT in the time frame between 15May-15Jun to meet up with fellow-hikers HiHills, MoFo, Pokey, Wiggs and whoever who wish to join. MoFo & Pokey will be celebrating their 20th reunion thru’ hike while Wiggs and I , our 10th. Only short mileage days so that Trail Angel can play the part this time round!
AT revisit thru’ the 14 states
