allergic to burt's bees peppermint lip balm

I'm following this up - trying to pinpoint what I'm allergic to.

Apart from biting and sucking on a shrimp's head, I also suspect my lip balm. The lip balm that I started using every night since November last year when it started getting cold: Burt's Bees Peppermint lip balm. I haven't put it on since March when I had that allergic reaction on my lips that took weeks to go away.

I tested the lip balm on Monday, May 23, 2016. I applied it on half of my lower lip and a moment later...

There it is, that part of my lower lip getting itchy and inflamed. The redness is obvious close to the center.

It was swollen when I woke up the next day and the clear bubbles started to appear along the edge as the day went on. Same thing as before.

I'm allergic to you. I'm allergic to you...

It felt really nice on my lips before I became allergic to it too. Oh well...

verona optical in sm muntinlupa

MAY 20, 2016 FRIDAY

Fudge it. If I can't see clearly, I can't work. If I can't work, I don't earn.

My eyesight is worse: -8.00 for both eyes with astigmatism (R 1.75 & L 2.00).

My new prescription eyeglasses is ₱₱ kahit net na ng 20% (PWD-cardholder discount). It will have anti-glare coating to relieve eye strain from looking at a computer screen too long. It will have to be special ordered.

The frame I chose.

Dropped by Verona Optical in SM Muntinlupa on our way home from Alabang for this. Their shop is on the 2nd floor beside the food court. At least it's done. We can pick up my new specs next week.

high grade prescription eyeglasses distortion when worn

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone... No glare. Good.

I like the case too. Magnetic closure, shaped like a Toblerone box so it's steady on a flat surface.

big problems could've been solved when they were small

egg, kalo-kalo, giniling

Blurry pic of yesterday's egg, kalo-kalo & leftover giniling.

Very humid that it's dangerous taking a bath, you can slip because you sweat at the same time. Not joking.

Getting new prescription eyeglasses deferred indefinitely. Fund will be appropriated to something more important than replacing broken specs and better vision {insert sarcasm}. That "something" is cleaning up after someone else's mistake. Need to fix it to get rid of this headache.

Big problem that could've been solved when it was small. Kainis. Unnecessary stress. Most of my hair is quickly turning white. Not joking.

disintegrating kindle cable

disintegrating kindle cord, kindle cable falling apart

Almost 4 years in and its white rubber covering has started to break apart and fall off. Had to tape it together to keep it from making a mess and exposing the silver hair-like layer and wires inside. Looks ugly now but it still works. At least it didn't fall apart too soon compared to other reports of disintegrating kindle cords.

Occasionally been packing my next-day's breakfast when there are leftovers.

This baunan is deep. Gives an illusion that there's not much inside but that right there is 2 rice-paddle servings of kanin already (think half a plate-full of rice na).
