The long and short about A Very Big Problem

As if what happened yesterday was not bad enough, more bad news awaited me this morning when I was preparing for work. I have been trying to deny this for quite some time now, but it’s official: I had to loosen my belt by two notches to accommodate my ever-expanding waistline.

Why, KFC, why?!?!?!?

Anyway, I’ve decided some time ago that I am going to be a Man of Action. Instead of sitting on my lazy ass and doing nothing, I’ve come up with a list of potential regimes to get my body back to shape.

Regime #01:
Use the stairs to get home instead of using the lift.
Although I live on the second floor, I’m sure the short exercise will prove to be beneficial in the long run. But I’m kind of worried that there might be perverts lurking at the staircase, so maybe this is not a very good idea after all.

Regime #02:
Use the stairs to get to the office instead of using the lift.
You’ve got to be kidding me. I work in the 16th level.

Regime #03:
Stop having ice cream for dessert after lunch.
Sounds like a plan. I think I will go with ice kachang instead.

Regime #04:
Stop having maggi mee for supper.
I actually tried this just now, but caved in after my stomach started growling really badly by 11pm. I’ve thus concluded that this is an unfeasible solution because if there is no Mee, there is no Me. Haha.

As you can see, I am really trying my best to lose weight, but to no avail. I tried pouring my sorrows to Sushi Eating Friend over dinner just now, but all she could offer was “Don’t worry, women won’t notice your weight because they won’t notice you in the first place.”

I have no idea why I am still friends with Sushi Eating Friend.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

    well, u claimed that the love of your life is KFC. There is a price to pay for every type of love.

    No point coming up wif ideas for exercise. You know very well yourself you can never adhere to a strict exercise routine.

    You will die an old, grumpy, FAT and sibeh sian fellow.

    “Don’t worry, women won’t notice your weight because they won’t notice you in the first place.”

    I think perverts will be scared away by you when they see you coming up the stairs. Who knows, you might be the next hound the police uses for their law enforcing duties.

    hmm, do a hundred situps every night before you sleep?

    and stop the late night "maggi mee" suppers lah.
    there' so much MSG in there, you'll go bald in a couple of years. and it's fried noodles, so it's FAT + CARB. you'll perish bald and fat.

    well, unless you're eating koka.
    then i've nothing to say.

    If you are the type to eat less when stress then get stress.
    U will really slim down ;)

    But if it is the vice versa for you then erm forget about this suggestion.

    I think you should grow fat and so big that women cannot help but notice you.

    fat is merely a state of mind.

    anyways.. fat = ho kee.

    HAHHAHAHA! You'd better stop your bad habits or I'm going to point fingers at you and laugh, " Haha, only 28, no hair!" You're hilarious. Eileen and I are working on a project currently named "A 100 sit-ups a day, can burn all your tummy fats away!" Embrace it.

    Rapists don't appear on second floor. -.- 16th floor isn't THAT tiring. Heh.

    Twinkles: I know! But I lazy! Argh....

    Adrenaline: You are right. Love always comes with a sacrifice. For the sake of KFC, I shall kiss my 29" waistline goodbye :(

    Bittersweet: Nice idea. I think they will taste great after prata and waffles :)

    Sunflower: Lately, I find that I'm lazy to even make a trip to TPY stadium! Jialat lah.

    Zhe Bin: I hope the police pays well :)

    Eileen: Koka no MSG huh? Aiyah, instant mee taste sooooooooo gooooooood!

    LemonCloud: Damn. I am indeed in the 'vice versa' situation.

    Green Ogre: If that doesn't work out as planned, I will have a very big problem at hand.

    PJ: Oh don't worry, my head remains thin :)

    Yanni: Xando very expensive! And very precious too, because the Guardian staff always put it under lock at the counters, haha.

    Beth: Exactly. Youngsters nowadays, tsk tsk.

    JJ: I thought about it, but gave up after my mum and I figured that we can just go for the free demos regularly :)

    Platform: I am very resolute in losing weight! I've been eating one cup of maggi instead of the usual two!

    LMG: I like that. Maybe after a while I can kick a football really well too, haha.

    Lambchop: Can. I usually stay at the Bat Cave. But you must call my butler or Robin to make an appointment first.

    Spinnee: It makes me wanna go toilet leh, haha.

    Saltpop: You can never be too sure! Perverts are everywhere, even 2nd levels!

    ASK: I'll relieve your burden by taking over your D&D place :)

    YES. U need to execise! I force myself to go jogging at nite after work, at least 2 times a week.

    It really helps if you get ur mp3 player along. Music work wonders in a execise routine.

    Tell you ah... no matter how much less you eat also no use. Execise is the only way.
