Default Stupid mosquito's/sandbugs....

So had a great day off, spent it chilling at the one and only royal mirage, which was pretty quiet, lazing round the pool (weather could have been a bit hotter to be honest), a bit of lunch, massage, then cocktails and drinks at the rooftop terrace watching teh sunset, which was ace and a great day,

got home, bites all over my ankles, about 15 on each, had to get up about 6 times through the night for freezing cold and boiling hot showers on the bites, had to go and get some anti hystimeen (sure thats not how you spell it like) tablets and stuff to stop it itching, it's bloody AWFUL.....

what a royal pain in the arse...

don't worry, with the recession, there is a rumour that 40% of sandbugs in Dubai are about to be laid off...

had it over here last week. went for a 20 minute stroll around the gardens of our condo. was bitten 20 times. and over here mozzies can carry Dengue Fever.

if you can get it over there try putting some tiger balm on the bites. works quite well.

Next time - prevention is better than cure.

Swallow a wagon-load of Vitamin B (the one they sometimes sell as "Brewers Yeast") .............. the Aussies I know swear by it............ the mosquitoes can smell it through your skin, apparently, and hate it...........

Mosquitoes are also immune to AIDS.
