Every time i drink my whole body would turn damn red and i'll get rashes everywhere. Then my face bloats up no wait...my whole body bloats up idk how to say but i always feel numb and swollen all over and i'll look like crap the entire night. SIGH. Really hope there's a solution for it! Tried the PEP pills(?)...doesn't work on me?! :(




I have to wake up to very ugly pictures of myself almost everyday...lol.

Spent the entire day nursing a hangover. Man the amount i drank last night was kinda crazy. I even had a Waterfall. Such drinks are supposed to KILL ME. Did a good job last night cus i wasn't puking the night through and lying down all over the place. Such a fun night...lots of dancing, lots of crazy shit, lots of equally high people.

Today. A lot of Youtube. A lot of Sleep. Just woke up from a 3 hour nap. Fell asleep right after chicken rice a very nice person got me. Great friends around. Lucky me. Hehe. I kinda feel normal now. It's 2. I've a shoot to wake up for tomorrow. Not forgetting i've to head down to ICA to get me a new passport. Still have no idea how i lost my passport.......i mean it's a freaking PASSPORT not an ezlink card or something (hahaha marisse). Oh well~

Anyhow, you should be armed with a couple of tricks to nurse a hangover in case you face one next time (well i know im gonna face one the coming Wed) so i decided to be a kind human providing tips for you (& myself to be prepared on Thur morning).

You're welcome.

Haha.

Hangover Remedies:

Aspirin
Helps to bring any swelling down of your blood vessels in your head that can cause a headache and pain.

Water or a sports drink to remain hydrated

Fruits - Natural sugars that can be found in many fruits can help you to fight off a hangover

Patience. YOU WILL NEED A LOT OF SLEEP!

Coke - Fizz for the nausea, liquid for the dehydration, and a caffeine and sugar hit to make you feel a bit more lively.

Chocolate Milk

Bananas - Sugar in the form of fructose, and potassium, which is one of the things you lose lots of when you drink. Bananas are also a natural antacid to help with the nausea, and are high in magnesium which can help relax those pounding blood vessels causing that hangover headache. For a variety of reasons try a peanut butter, honey and banana sandwich on white bread.

Lemon Add the juice of one lemon to a cup of black coffee and drink it unsweetened and without milk.

Lime As soon as you wake up on the "morning after" add two teaspoons of fresh lime juice and a teaspoon of sugar to 8 ounces of water. Drink it slowly. This concoction will help stabilize your blood sugar, which will be low after imbibing.

Chicken soup Grandma's old stand-by, chicken soup, seems to work as well for hangover problems as it does for colds.

Hangover Prevention

Don't drink. :P

Take a Berocca before you start drinking. This gets a reserve of Vitamin B into you.

Alternate fruit juice or water in amongst your drinks to avoid dehydration later on. Avoid fizzy or sugary stuff. The purists reckon that about 200ml of water is needed to effectively counteract each 30ml of alcohol.

The alcohol in carbonated drinks is absorbed more quickly than in non-carbonated drinks.

Reduce the amount of sugar you consume with your alcohol. The forced metabolism of sugar AND alcohol by your body will accelerate the depletion of B vitamins and make the hangover worse.

The 2am pig-out. Pizza or pasta is usually best since cheese and carbohydrates are a good source of amino acids. Actually food is a good idea all round - before, during and immediately after drinking. Food doesn't absorb alcohol, but it does increase metabolism, activates alcohol absorption, and increases the speed with which the body processes alcohol.

***Consuming alcohol in moderation and remaining hydrated WHILE you are drinking can help limit the effects of a hangover, or even help you to eliminated having to deal with one altogether.


Which hangover remedy works best for you?

  3. I don't think there's any "cure" for asian flush other than taking heartburn medicine (I dont know if you have Zantac in Singapore) 30-60 minutes before drinking.
    Problem is that by taking it... it will get you drunk quicker (but you won't be red)

    Hangover cure - drinking as much water as you can right before passing out. =P And then fruit/vegetable juice the next day...

  16. I too used to get rashes everytime after i drink, its something called like " jiu mo " in chinese, it doesnt have a cure to this. But as you start drinking often, the next time you drink, they'll be very slight chances of getting these rashes.

  21. you've got hives babe! its an allergy reaction to alcohol and you've got to take anti-hestamines for the rash to go away! plus, you got to make sure the rash is cool. so apply body lotion or some body cream.

    hope it helps !
