Now it has been the 3rd day I’m under control of an alien parasite called influenza. It’s not that bad though; having live on a tropical island of Indonesia, influenza has become a common daily disease here that our bodies have been adjusted to cope with it. When the people around the globe with four season in their countries suffer from influenza, it tends to become a bad disease that bring its victim down to the level of bed rest and unable to do anything. But in a tropical island like Indonesia, an influenza disease is just as common as headache or discount at Matahari department store (I never saw Matahari without something to be discounted at, by the way). For me, influenza is just another type of cough or sneeze. It’s very rare for the influenza to develop into something evil like cold.
