About 1 in 3 people I know is sick in Singapore or it could be closer to 1 in 2. It's like an epidemic but as it's a mild thing in intensity, most people just kinda go about normal and no one rings the alarm bells, thank goodness. For anyone who's had to live through the SARS epidemic, the city kinda went a bit neurotic and hysterical well after the danger had passed its peak.

So anyway, to cut a long story short, i'm sick. But die-hard enough to finally show up for class after a week of not going to class. And then discovered that about 1/3 of the class was recently or was sick like me. And like me were die hard enough to show as soon as the symptoms showed any sign of abating. I did wonder before I went if I should show up but I also figured well, it's so prevalent and the people who show up for aikido aren't high risk groups and have already probably been exposed to this. Plus by now I must have developed some level of resistance so they'd get half dead germs which is the best kind to get.

Despite that, the class was packed. 20 people I counted which for a Friday class is a record for the last 2 years. ( I should add that our normal classes for other days of the week numbers more around 50...so it's only the aikido diehards who burn their friday nights at the dojo )
