Please Do Not Drink Non-Fresh Buko Juice!

We went to shopping mall together. We roamed around and bought some clothes and other stuffs. Then we felt hungry and looked for a place to eat. Thought the best place was the food court. We ate regular lunch package with buko juice drink mix.

On my way home I felt a severe stomach pain. I was still in good situation cause I was just few minutes away from home. I was able to stood the pain until home. Then I hurriedly went to comfort room. My stomach pain was due to diarrhea. The pain ceased few minutes after taking medicine.

I got a feeling that my diarrhea was due to buko juice. However, my wife was not affected. Maybe I was wrong!

Sister-in-law told me, my big brother experienced the same with buko juice. He suffered loose bowel movement and vomiting for several days after drinking buko juice.

So my first theory is right after all. The thing that caused my diarrhea was the buko juice. To prevent the occurrence of the same problem, I am avoiding buko juice from restaurants and sidewalk vendors. I am only drinking juice fresh from nut.
