Simply Irresistible....

These few days I have been putting on weight in my working place. For the past few days, meetings and meetings going on and if not that, there would be some farewell meals to go along or some durian fest, sponsored by some colleagues who owned durian orchards.....

NO, I am not complaining, what is there to complain when there is abundant food on the table? A few added centimeters here and there is perfectly alright....worst come to worst, just go change a new wardrobe, hai mai? (talk big only) It is nice to be plump than to look skin and bones, yeah?? (sigh..consoling myself) Already someone said I looked so rounded these days.. well, I know what the cause is....

one of them is this....
roti jala (pancake with holes)
eaten with durian paste cooked with santan and sugar..
gosh..that is really "unhealthy"

and the more unhealthy it is,
the more I love to eat..
so creamy, so sweet...

  9. Ooo... my mum teach me punya the recipe, she learn from my late grandmother...roti jala was a common tea time snack for our family back then. But we never take with sweet sauce. Always with the curry or sambal.

  16. I can tell how unhealthy something is by the taste. The better it tastes, the worse it is for me! Pooh to those commentors, you are lovely and skinny!!! They are just jealous because they are probably hungry all the time. It can make you grumpy.

  25. For every unhealthy meal you have, force yourself to have 3 healthy meals.

    If you have the discipline to do that, you can enjoy with minimal guilt. ^_^
