Covid-19 MCO : Day #88 (Strawberry Rose and A Snacky Mood)


Day 88. 88 Fatt Fatt or in my case Fat Fat. Or you can say 88 as two fat ladies heh..heh... I put on quite a bit of weight during the MCO. 4kgs (the last time I weighed). Why?

Because I failed to exercise Mouth Control Order (MCO). And I am still at it. Eat eat eat. Case in point, one evening I brought home these.


I was obviously asking for trouble. Some people eat just a few pieces and then they keep for the next few days or they share with 10 people. Not me. 

But before I indulge, dinner first.


Eh, pasta again? I made three portions and kept in the fridge. Reheated by way of microwave.  Somehow it kept tasting better and better.


This portion size is just right and if I stopped at just this for the evening I would have done very well.


But I also ate some mangoes, which is fine. And then....


heh..heh..heh... This in hand on the sofa in front of the TV with Netflix on, HEAVEN! 


So nice krup..krap..krup..krap... I am currently watching Better Call Saul. But you must watch Breaking Bad first to appreciate this spin off. 

I finished the whole can. As with these things, they are very addictive. You just want more. And as long as there is another can in the house, there is no peace.


Bad behavior mode big time. I must not do this anymore.

Even after the previous evening's transgression, the next day I still wanted a treat. Baskin Robbins new ice cream flavor - Strawberry Rose!


One scoop only, I told myself. Pre-MCO, I used to treat myself to double scoop every once in a while. 


See, one scoop only. True to my word.


It was very sweet but still tolerable. I didn't really get the rose scent or taste and the strawberry also did not taste like strawberry (maybe it's just me).


I still prefer their Very Strawberry flavor. Or maybe next time get one scoop of each hee..hee..hee...


This place has opened. Turns out to be a beauty salon.


Such places will never earn any money from me. I would rather spend RM138 on something I can eat. My natural beauty lies within my stomach.


Miniso is still having their Marvel promotion. This is where I bought my Marvel slippers that my cat loves to sit on.



Business seem to be coming back to the Starling mall, slowly but surely and I see people going to the food court and eating at the restaurants. It's a good sign of recovery.


I'm looking forwards to having my favorites at the food court soon!

  3. I have added a few kilos too. My eating and exercise is the same but my movement across the entire day has been greatly reduced. Too much time in Zoom meetings on my butt in a chair.

  7. I always eat the strawberry flavour from Baskin Robbins. Hahaha I can understand the once start eating chips can't stop. Same with me so that's why that day I bought two cans - one is Pringles n one is Mr potatoes with tomato flavours which is my favourite but I gave both cans away before I can open them. Hahaha! That's the way to keep myself from binging - give food away!

  11. It probably didn't taste like strawberry coz this is strawberry rose...it tastes weird when there's a 'flower' involved! ;D I guess we both don't like the taste of flowers in our ice cream. And if this is very sweet for you, it'll be intolerable for me...whether I eat it from frozen or melted! >_< Of course, it'll taste sweeter when melted coz once we put something frozen in our mouths, it'll of course melt before we swallow (just like hard chocolate when we suck and it melts in our mouths). Like you, I'd rather eat potato chips...and the fresh mangoes...hehe! ;)

    1. Chew the frozen ice cream and swallow just like how you chew chips la. Do chips melt in your mouth?

      Delete
    2. Kris : Yup, I don't chew my ice cream, I just let it melt in my mouth and that's when the sweetness is amped up but I think I tolerate sweet better than you hah..hah...

      Delete
    3. PH: Yes, I think so too...that you have a higher sweetness threshold than me. That's why I can only attempt to try those things which are not too sweet in your opinion. I trust your taste buds.

    4. For the person who likes to encroach on other people's space (when she should just keep to her own): I don't remember asking for your opinion on how I should eat my ice cream or chips. My ice cream...my sukak....and if you choose to chew on yours like an Eskimo, it's your choice.

  12. I kept nodding my head in agreement as I read this post. Yup, I too have gained weight. More sitting than walking during MCO. More calorie input than output. Watching more dramas on TV and computer and no stop snacking on junk food. Once I started on the chips, I cannot stop until I finished the whole lot. Haven't eaten ice cream for a long time but started during MCO. Not easy to reduce the weight gained during MCO. Sigh!

    1. Now that I am back in office more frequently, I hope to lose some weight!

  13. I'm the one who can't stop at only a few pieces of chips, must finish the whole packet (or at least half for bigger packet like Lay's). The worst this is, I constantly keep stock in my house >_<

    1. LOL! I must finish all or else I won't stop. Bad habit >.<
