I certainly know that being a non-smoker and a very occasional alcoholic drinker doesn’t give me enough license to pig-out every now and then. And as a medical practitioner and a lecturer at that, I completely understand those long term consequences -health wise. But what can I do? Resistance is as they say, futile when the opportunity presents itself.
Most of my housemates here in Penang follow a diet/gym regimen (we live in a penthouse where ground floor has swimming pool, gym and sauna); one of them doesn’t eat rice but only oatmeal on most of his meals. Admittedly, unlike them, I am stubborn to start a healthier lifestyle. Yes, you can accuse me of not practicing what I preach but at least I am happy. There’s nothing to be alarmed of as of this moment anyway. *bad defense*
Don’t get me wrong, I also eat veggies particularly those dishes that my friends cook at home. I walk with them a few meters daily to and fro bus stops; we stroll several hours in malls on weekends so I am not actually that couch potato. But whenever we find time to go out after work or more frequently during weekends and holidays, we cannot avoid eating what we’d like to eat.
Here are few of those yummies my friends and I savored last week…
Six-cheese-pizza from Pizza Hut, Prangin Mall, Georgetown, Penang; who doesn’t like pizza?
Nando’s Mild Peri-peri chicken from Sunway Carnival Mall...sarap!
The first and last time I got to sample Nando’s 24-hour-marinated peri chicken was back in 2005 when we had a 7-week-vacation in Auckland, New Zealand. Its taste is truly remarkable to the palate….
Spaghetti topped with ebi tempura from Pizza Hut, Prangin Mall, Georgetown…
Eggs Ben with fresh salad from the CBTL, Queensbay Mall… an all-day-breakfast treat served with Cafe Americano…
and Cantonense Kway Teow mixed with beehon from our favorite Pinoy-Malaysian owned food kiosk at the foodcourt of Queensbay Mall…It was my cheapest meal last week at RM 5.90 (PhP 82.60) but the most delightful!
Can you blame me for being a foodie ?
Senang Makan (Happy eating!) from Penang!
