Gastric after many years…

It had been long time since Mummy last got a gastric. The worst was during student time when Mummy was rushing for assignments deadline without proper meal time and sleepless nights.
Last Monday when Mummy was in Denpasar (Bali) airport doing validation, we ended up taking lunch at 3pm. After lunch, Mummy started to have bad gastric attack which Mummy was hunting for gastric pills.
Language was a problem to explain what was a gastric to the staffs working in a shop. There was no pharmacy around which made it worst. In pain, Mummy went through the whole shelves of medication in the shop identifying the medications from headache pills, colon cleansing pills, fever, stomachache pills etc...
At last Mummy found the gastric pills and just bought it because the liquid one was not available. The liquid would take effect faster than pills but what choice Mummy had. Thank goodness, it worked that Mummy could continue to work till night.
