Remember I mentioned about my diet plan? The below are the reasons why I should go on a diet, and as of today, just the 2nd day into the week I think I have failed terribly. This just shows how weak my resolve is in the face of glorious food.
I really like the sandwiches at Joe & Dough, and the bonus factor of the coffee art on top of my rather-strong cup of latte! The downside is that this place is quite pricey and it’s a very small outfit!
Never knew why it always is on a Wednesday but according to my friend, Wednesdays are the mid-week when people take a breather from the usual routine and start winding down to the weekend. Maybe.
Marche apparently sells coffee in the mornings. But the cup is not exactly friendly to the touch, since it doesn’t come with any jacket for me to carry from 313 to the office so I had to rely on a makeshift java jacket using the serviettes that they gave me.
I never used to like naans that much, I wonder why, but from last Saturday’s lunch I think garlic naan is pretty yummy, especially eaten with the gravy from the fish head curry!
And after a really good movie on Saturday night, I had a quiet dinner, with some nibbles of the toffee pudding that my friend ordered, which I felt was like a cake because I had thought of pudding to be less spongey with a more watery consistency.
With the strange weather these days, Singapore is still a very hot and humid place wont to high temperatures. The best way to cool down in the heat, albeit a very lousy way for weight-watchers, is beer, which often demands the accompaniment of bar snacks like fries and in this particular place, expensive sausages.
So that was last week, and there were more that weren’t pictured as evidence of my gluttoning. I wanted to curb my eating but like I said, my appetite is the only part of me that is in perennial tip-top condition. Yes, even when I am sick I still eat like a growing adolescent. Yet the body’s metabolism hasn’t been able to remain the same. I had a pack of MSG-laden pretz last night in class because I just couldn’t resist snacking since I was so tired. And today I had wanted to keep lunch simple but this morning, something happened that made me really upset and somehow all that emotions were channelled into food cravings, and thus I ended up with these…
Honestly, just either one of them with a cup of coffee is good enough for lunch, but I had both the muffin and the apple crumble, and they are both huge. The apple crumble is also a tad sweet although it has very generous servings of apple pieces in it. So did they make me feel better after eating? Not really, because I probably felt more guilt from snacking than the sugar high that might have resulted. But the lunch company did a great job in alleviating some of the frustrations though, because I still believe that talking it out is cathartic in its own way, even if I have told myself to cut down on the talking so that I don’t burden everyone around with my incessant grouses.
And by the way, this doesn’t belong to me, either the iPad, or the Maserati pictured.
