Problem: Not drinking a drop of liquid between waking at 7:30 am and the first sip at 1ish.

Extent of the problem: When I finally went to get water at 1ish, I washed my mug thoroughly and was halfway back to my cubicle with an empty mug before I realised something was, well, missing.

Result: Total listlessness achieved by 3 pm.

Remedy: Forging through the skin-piercing mid-afternoon heat to a late lunch with a close friend, where the rojak* was oddly rejuvenating. I was bouncing around the office for the rest of the afternoon, which I'm sure my colleagues found way more disturbing than I did.

* Rojak: A salad of mixed vegetables taken with sauce (taken from the Coxford Singlish Dictionary). It looks like it's just a brown mess on a plate, but it's very tasty.
