Hong Kong and it’s excellent Health Care System

Hong Kong

semi-overcast 26 °C

I started feeling bit ill after my sex session with Malena . Early morning and my body felt sore and feverish . I thought to myself must be the exertion from the night before . I slept over my fever , but next day it was back again . Walked unto a seven eleven and bought some pill’s . But no use the body ache persisted . Now i started getting a bit worried , i hope she was not carrying VD . went straight to the net to check my symptoms , yes they looked similar to Hepitites B , my god , I hope all is well . Two days’s past bye i had not left my hotel room . I decided enough was enough it was time to take professional advice . I was told most clinic’s will be closed at this time of night , my best bet will be the local hospital called Queen Mary Hospital . I took a taxi and went to the Hospital . It was a good one very clean and organised , every one was advised to wear a surgical masked . I was seen by a nurse at the emergency , she gave me a slip and a number and asked me to deposit a fee of 990 Hong Kong Dollars . I sat down at the reception and was told my turn will come within an hour. It came within the stipulated time . I was ushered in to a room , where a Chinese doctor attended to me . I told him about my symptom’s , i told him that i had had sex a few days back , but used the necessary protection .

The doctor examined me and said relax “ It’s just a case of Flu .” I was happy and took a sigh of relief . I had checked up that my Prestige Citi Bank Card also gave me adequate insurance cover and i was relived that my adventurous way’s had not made me fall ill in a foreign land . I walked unto the pharmacy and was given the prescribed doses of medicine , neatly packed and labelled on polythene bags . All this took just 20 min while i sipped soda and enjoyed the music from my I Pod .

Came back to my hotel and took my medicines , all is now well and i can go back to sleep that i managed to escape VD at least.
