Sigh! My face is rounder already (it's the first place to show, along with my tummy). True, I still weigh the same and I can still wear most of my clothes but I dread my fat composition! yikes! Everywhere you go, there are special Christmas foods and drinks. All those parties don't help either. I have 2 to look forward to, the first is a catered affair, with fancy good foods (I've heard), the 2nd is a potluck among my Bible Study group but consider this : there are only about 10 of us but we are planning on having food fit for 25! I did suggest slimming down on the menu but they wouldn't listen! Oh well! 'Tis the season to be jolly and eat! But I hope I can get away with it and not put on too much weight!
And it doesn't end in January either! Oh NO! Then it's Chinese New Year season for the whole month till February!!!! AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I really love their Christmas drinks! Both hot and cold. A nice fancy latte would be nice in rainy weather, which is nearly everyday now! A nice fancy frap would be nice in hot weather, which is nearly everyday too here in Malaysia. Oh yes! The crazy monsoon end of the year weather, hot and sunny one minute, rainy and cold the next! (at any time of the day or night, crazy, eh?!).
The problem is, we're discouraged from drinking our calories! And what's a fancy Starbucks drink without it's festive topping of whipped cream and caramel drizzle?! Oh well, I guess, I'll just get one drink before Christmas is over, just one............

I keep waking up like 5 times a night, nearly after an hour and a half or so. The last time I wake will be around 5am, then I will sleep like a log till 11am or so. This morning, I was supposed to go to church at 10:45am but was supposed to wake up at 9am because I wanted to catch a ride; as both my parents will be gone for the day (wedding dinner and seminar) BUT I just couldn't wake up. My bed felt so comfy and I just couldn't for the life of me open my eyes. I was so dead tired. So, I didn't make to church today. And it was communion Sunday too!
But one question I have is, why can't the church has afternoon or evening services. It would make life so much simpler!

We went to a different hawker center today, further away from our usual haunts. I ordered char kuey kak (fried turnip cakes) for myself and fruit rojak (chopped Malaysian fruits with prawn paste dressing and crushed peanuts) to share with the group. The fried turnip cakes cost me RM4.50 while the rojak was RM6. Not too bad but not really very cheap either. But then the cost of everything has gone up these days.
The Bible Study leader order a half dozen bbq chicken wings for RM12. You definitely won't get that sort of price for chicken wings if you ate in a restaurant! That's why most Malaysians choose to eat more often in hawker centers! He also ordered some chicken satay but I didn't have any because I can't have too much meat, it's high in phosphate (I'm on dialysis). He also paid for my drink which was iced lime juice.
I'm really full now (as I type), it was a very satisfying dinner, and I only spent like RM10.50!

Today, I went to the mall! I've been going there a lot lately. And I can't afford to do that anymore, or I'll start encroaching on my savings! I decided to go to Pizza Hut for lunch today. Of all the places I checked out today, they have the most value for money deal.
I had a soft drink (Revive), cream of chicken soup, a huge Focassia sandwich served with fries and 2 bbq chicken wings (my fave! I couldn't turn that down), all for RM17.50! That's a lot of food for a reasonable price. But understandably, I can't eat like this everyday or I'll get fat and be broke!
I've been joining my Bible Study friends for dinner every Saturday too, that's something I should set aside money for too! Sigh! And here I was thinking that I can save money before Christmas! I need to save money for my hair treatments too! I think I need to stop going to the mall!
