i’m allergic to…

November 20, 2016

I know I’m allergic to seafood but I was curious to know what else, just in case. So I took the allergy test.



They put a strip on you, marked the numbers and each number represents a different item like peanut, shrimp, egg and other things. They drop liquid next to each number and you have to wait 10-15 minutes with your arms out like this, and be bored to death because you can’t check your phone. Like you literally have to just watch your phone light blinking and not be able to check if that’s an urgent message or someone commented on your Instagram photo… #problems.

Slowly red dots will start to appear or you’ll start to feel an itch, and then after time’s up, the doctor will call you in to examine you to see what you most reacted to.

What I’m allergic to?

How much time do you have?


I’m allergic to shrimp which was expected since I get rash if I want seafood sometimes. I’m allergic to coco which means I can’t eat chocolate and milo, which is so heartbreaking I’m going to drown my sorrows in some chocolate ice cream later. I’m allergic to cockroach which made me so uncomfortable thinking they dropped blended cockroach juice onto my skin. But who doesn’t want to be allergic to cockroach. Alhamdulillah.

And lastly, I’m allergic to flour. Like wth WHO IS ALLERGIC TO FLOUR?!!! I’ve been living my whole life eating flour and yummy carbs and I haven’t gotten rash from it or whatever. So so odd this test.

“Excuse me? Flour?”

“Yes, corn flour and wheat flour.”

“Wait, wait… you’re saying I can’t have cucur udang and roti canai and cekodok pisang??”

 What kind of life would that be?!!!!!

Anyway, get tested guys. You might discover you’re actually allergic to certain things and then regret taking the test. But really, take a deep breath and just do it. Maybe go for a food party before you take the test. Go all out before the doctor tells you you’re allergic to it. Ok bad advice. Bye.
