Basilika Sto. Niño

Basilika Sto. Niño Cebu

It should be a long weekend. I came back from school on Saturday as a German teacher and was looking forward to report for work next on Wednesday only. On the night of Monday to Tuesday I suddenly felt very bad. I immediately thought of a food poisoning, because we had eaten fish in the evening. That was not a nice imagination, because I knew of such a food poisoning that can persist for several weeks. A few years ago I had experienced such a poisoning, and it took me two weeks to get back on my feet again. So I was hoping that there is something else and I can recover from on the following Tuesday.

On Tuesday was no work because it was a holiday (a Muslim holiday that was declared as a national holiday in the Philippines). In the morning I struggled out of bed, because my family was already up. It was about 7 am, and I was pretty broken through the sleepless night. After a diet breakfast for the sick I thought: Fortunately, today is a holiday. So I go right back to bed and I can hopefully recover.
