8th July 2005, 0018h. That was the first time I saw a real live scorpion in my 24 years of existence. It goes to show how urbanized Singapore is that one never really see such stuff around any more. Of course, seeing a real live scorpion is nothing compared to experiencing its sting first hand, which was what I did before I actually saw the scorpion.
haha.. bai du bu qin!? the first sting sensitises you to worse allergic reactions on the next sting. you prob end up with swollen body and breathing problems.. keep some antihistamines on the next training. might just save your life and qin your du!! heh..
shucks! and i thought the human body was so adaptive. oh well, i won't be training in thailand any more. next overseas training should be new zealand and there are NO scorpions there, yay!
NZ is a great place! i hope you have some free time to go around. Do try bungee jumping, sky diving, white water rafting and even hiking. the forests in NZ are pretty safe from nasty snakes and scorpions! when will that be?
probably early next year. i doubt there'll be so much freedom, it is an army exercise after all haha. but my friends and i will probably rent a car and drive out of town during the rest period if possible.
ever tot abt snake bites?? get biten too often and you'll turn allergic to anti-venoms.
