Somewhere Over The Rainbow..

After all the food galore, I feel heavier everywhere... either I have put on weight OR my clothings have shrunk! Each blouse, skirt, dress I wear, either cannot button fully or cannot hook on completely..... alamak! don't tell me that the myth is true... it says as we age, we tend to put on weight? our metabolism has slow down? How scary, man....

What shall I do? I guess the only way is to exercise, do some brisk walking but for my case, normal walking also can, hor? When it comes to food, my girl has more self control, the moment she says she is full, she will stop eating, no matter how I tempt her, she will not lift a bite on the food. But me? Entirely the opposite, when I see new dishes served, I must at least have a bite, no matter how full I am, I sure wanna taste then baru satisfied... well, That's Me!

Coming back to losing weight, my girl and I had an evening walk after a slight downpour. It was shining again and we were so happy when we saw the beautiful rainbow looming just above... I couldn't resist not taking the picture of the rainbow.... pelangi...choy hoong...


can see or not? the 7 colors of wonder...


God's convenant, the rainbow...


oh.. my girl overtook me..


i overtook her back.. cos i want this pic.. lol...


see this house??? got chimney one
like what I used to draw when young...


this house is for sale, if renovated, it will be beautiful..
must be around RM300K at least for the land..
I wonder when my money printer is arriving.. sigh..
