My current HIV medication regimen. (the WTF on the pillbox was intentional, LOL)
The orange tablets are Kaletra (Lopinavir & Ritonavir) and they cost SGD $444. I eat two at 9am, two at 9pm.
The blue tear-shaped tablets are Tenofovir and they cost SGD $275. I eat this once every morning.
The box contains Combivir tablets (Lamivudine & Zidovudine) and they cost SGD $166. I eat this once at 9am, once at 9pm.
I am also still recovering from severe depression — although my psychiatrist today told me I look so much more cheerful now — so I still have a Prozac (fluOxetine) to pop every morning after breakfast and an Atarax (hydrOxizine) before to help me sleep because I always have night terrors.
The rest are all health supplements. I am still very much a kiasu Singaporean. :)
This is how much medicines cost for someone who has HIV in Singapore. PRACTICE SAFE SEX, PEOPLE.
“Home” music video (extended version) - 39 Singapore singers (2011)
This song still brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it. Nothing can else compare.
There’s been so much criticism on the NDP songs from the recent years. I wonder why is it that our songwriters now cannot write songs like these anymore? Or is it because we orefer ti hold on to the past? :P Maybe this year’s NDP songs will be popular in 15 years’ time? :P
