Just drink bird’s nest juice instead of plain water everyday. Just live life to its fullest like usual. Then on last week, I got to know a medical doctor who is also joining one of my classes. Yeah! What a golden opportunity to clear my doubt!
Anyway, I did nothing about it.
“Doc, my sweat tastes like plain water, lah! Not salty at all. Will I die prematurely?”
“No such thing, lah...”
“Huh? You mean no such thing for the plain taste of my sweat? Oh no! I’m going to die then...”
“I meant no such thing for you to die because of the taste of the sweat, lah!”
“Ohhhh... So what is happening to my sweat? Isn’t it supposed to taste salty?”
“Well, this is not a good or bad condition. You see, when you work out so vigorously and sweat profusely, and you're drinking a lot of water daily, the sodium level in your body is getting low and being diluted. That’s why you can no longer sense the salty taste...”
“Oh, I see.
So I'm not "ham-sap" lah then. I thought my taste bud is dead already. Is there anything I should do then?”
“No specifically. Don’t worry about it. Just live your life as it is.”
“Thank you, doc! By the way, can I see you hold your boxing guard higher in the class later, ah?”
