On nights that I have classes, this is my dinner. Or something similar.
Such is a part time student’s lifestyle. Proper dinner is a luxury. Normally I munch a few pieces in the car while driving from office to campus. Then during break, after Maghrib prayers, I munch a few more.
I try not to eat much at night anyway. Got to watch my weight. Unless I’m on a trip or celebrating or socializing, during which weigh watching takes a back seat. But I quickly work on getting my normal weight back once the special pass is over.
My normal weight range? 45kg to 47kg, at which I look my best. Anything less/more makes me look like a skeleton/penguin. Thanks (or no thanks) to Penang’s glorious food, when I jumped on the scale at Hard Rock Hotel I was at 49.9kg *gawk*. Scary! After two weeks of less frequent lunches and dinners, plus the fact that I just moved to a new office that is located a lot further from the parking lot, I’ve lost the excess baggage *phew*.
I know, eating cheese biscuits kind of defeats the purpose. But to my defense, it’s not like I finish the entire box in a single sitting. Only several pieces at one go, just enough to stop me from craving for more “sinful” stuffs like nasi lemak late at night. And I don’t like the biscuits much actually. They get stuck in my molar. Need to rinse my mouth immediately afterwards.
*Thinking* What do you call the act of rinsing your mouth..?
Omigod I just realized there’s no equivalent English word for “kumur”! My first thought was “gargle”, but I don’t think so. Kumur ≠ Gargle. Gargle is when you tilt your head backwards and rinse your throat. Kumur is when you rinse your mouth. This is the first time I find that English vocabulary is not complete! Or is it only my vocabulary? Paging English teachers!
P.S.: Somehow the label “BAKED NOT FRIED” sounds amusing. Whoever fries a biscuit anyway?
