I was having lunch with the subcontractors – all of them were Chinese males, today at Cyberjaya when one of them started talking about slimming pills. I was like, ‘Hellooooo, why are you guys discussing slimming pills? I thought only girls are into this thing?’ They went from the brands to the side effects to the people whom they know had allergies because of it.
I didn’t participate much because I was in awe listening to guys discussing about getting slimmer. The irony was we were having a really heavy lunch, loaded with carbs, protein, fat and sugar (Ipoh white coffee is rather sweet, isn’t it?)
Another reason why I decided not to participate in their intellectual discussion was because I was the one with the highest BMI at the table. The Chinese guys were all skinny but I guess all of them have really high metabolic rate (by looking at how they cleaned up their plates).
One of the skinny Chinese guys shared with us on the fastest way to get slimmer. It was from his experience. Not too long ago, he was down with fever and left alone in the house by his parents for 2 weeks. Being sick, weak, tired (and I guess he didn’t even have a clue on how to cook), he survived on bread and baked beans for the entire 2 weeks. When the parents were back, they were so surprised to see him looking gaunt as if all liquid has been sucked out of his body. He lost a total of 10 kg.
Everyone at the table was going ‘Aaaaaaaah’ and then all of them turned to look at me. Macam siot sungguh. I know, they meant to recommend me that deadly crash diet, but before any of them spoke, with my mouth full I told them,
‘Sorry, that won’t ever happen to me. I have a car and Giant is so near to my house.’
That’s when they decided to change the subject. Hehehehe.
Sila jangan cerita pasal diet bila makan dengan saya, okeh?
