Gluttony Weekend

According to Wikipedia, gluttony is the over-indulgence and over-consumption of food and drinks, or intoxicants to the point of waste. I would like to correct the definition of my gluttoniness (not sure whether this word did exist but why so serious?). I did at some point over-indulged but not of any intoxicants and there were no waste because I finished every morsel of it! Then, maybe I should call myself a "Gluttoness" (is there such word? Glutton for male and Gluttoness for female). I'm such a genius.

Anyways, my weekend on Saturday morning started at 8.30am Pork Noodles with extra "siu cheong". Then my journey to FRIM (Forest Reserve Institute of Malaysia) started at 9am. I did nothing much there except climbing up to a certain level to see the waterfall. This is just to survey the area. Plan to go for a canopy walk and maybe camping for the next trip. After FRIM, we headed to Batu Caves. Can you imagine me being a Malaysian for 24 years, I've never been to the Batu Caves where millions of other nationalities have been? I guess it was not important for me to visit a place where I think I can visit anytime I want. This thinking is totally wrong. What if I die tomorrow without visiting the Batu Caves?!!

I managed to walk up to the top but having to stop twice to catch some breath. Gosh, I'm really out of shape since it has been almost a month of skipping gym because I was plain lazy. The aftermath of all these climbing resulted in me aching my leg and joints. Felt like an old woman and I'm limping to work today and wearing my flat sandals.

That very night, I drove my grandma, aunt and cousin for a wedding dinner at Damansara Palace. It was the wedding of my grandma's sister's daughter's daughter. Nevermind the complicated relations but we are related. It's only that night that I get to meet my aunts and aunties that I haven't met before since I was born. Can't believe I have so many relatives. LOL

The dinner was great but then again what if you have almost the same dishes for 2 consecutive nights? We had dinner at Tang Place in Dynasty Hotel yesterday night too. The dishes were almost the same - sharks fin soup, suckling pig, prawns, chicken, fish, mushroom and fried rice... I still feel that the roti canai I had for lunch was better. It had been more than 3 months since I last had roti canai and teh tarik, a little tragic isn't it?

As for Sunday breakfast, I had a hearty dim sum meal at a place where I go to almost once every week. So it must have been a great place but I was hesitating whether to reveal it or not because people have been flooding that very place and I hate the queue. I shall reconsider.

See, how gluttony my weekend was. So breakfast this morning was scaled down to oats.

(Sorry for the lack of evidence to show since someone took the camera before I get to upload the pics. Will the guilty one please stand up?)

You are officially now a gluttoness! Haha! But seriously, after FRIM and Batu Caves, you will need to eat more to replenish, don't you?
I totally know the feeling of enjoying the roti canai better than the wedding dinners. Too many wedding dinners can kill your enjoyment of such food and you tend to go for much simpler ones, like Maggi instant noodles.
Talking about FRIM and Batu Caves, both are nice places to go to, but I really like FRIM. Maybe because I like the forests and nature.
I'll wait for the photos once you get your camera back : )

aahhh-CHEW!!! said...

Or ... or ... you can call yourself glutinous rice ... ahahaha ...

I always turn into a glutton in the weekends. Gotta live a little and indulge in the finer things every now and then!

suituapui said...

LD said...

Foongpc: Haha I think the calories I've burnt is not enough even for a roti canai meal! I'll post the pics soon.

aahhh-chew: Haha nope i won't.

CC: Good!

STP: Maybe maybe... you're a bad influence.

LD: I'll try.

Wah,just eating and eating,not going for clubbing meh? Hope to see pictures of your FRIM trip. I must make a visit there too next trip to KL.

Yeah, just because it's easily accessible makes the locals put off visiting it. I climbed Mt. Kinabalu and was surprised by how many local Sabahans never bothered to go coz it'll always be there.

I did the Batu Caves thing when I was 12 or something. :)

Being a glutton once in a while is okay. As long as you're not bulimic. ;)

Find Chinese restaurant in Malaysia boring and lack of innovation.

If you like waterfall, suggest you to check out Templer park.

I am twice your weight, but I went up straight without stopping. The Indian God in front of the cave was big. Some one told me that was donated by sami belum.

Philip: No clubbing at the moment. yeah come la...

Huai bin: The last time I went to KK, I didn't climb Mt Kinabalu too. Maybe next round. I better start off with shorter mountains.

Anonymous: Okay...

Joe: Then eat some nasi lemak today!
