When one made the decision to embark on a fitness competition – yeah, I engaged the Número Uno Fitness Competition Coach in Australia for a 6-weeks foundation prep while I’m back in Sydney for a bikini fitness competition sometime in March or May next year (haven’t decided on the competition yet) – ethnic food DOES NOT sound appetising at all! 😰
But since my friend ‘…really, REALLY want nasi lemak (sic)…‘ (to quote her) and I’ve not met her for a long time, I gave in… We met at Mamak Malaysian Cuisine in Chatswood, a suburb in North Sydney.
On the menu… Carbs, carbs and more carbs with loads of sugar to edge off the hot spicy chili…
I couldn’t find anything lesser in carbs (or sugar) content, so I settled for a half dozen beef satays.
What can I say?? The satays at Mamak were better than Malaysia Airlines’ – although a bit tougher! I didn’t try the peanut sauce because I know it is very sweet. I gave to my friend who polished it off – along with the 4 extra serves of sambal with her nasi lemakl! I can only look on – saying nothing – but totally astonished! Here is a skinny woman who is ALWAYS complaining that she is fat, yet wolfing down calorifically-laden junks – at the same time explaining that she eats a lot (I can see that). Still, complaining that she is fat; in-between mouthfuls, when she is skinny, is totally not on! 😤 😤 😤
