Breaking the habit…

A friend of mine gave me this fridge magnet sometime ago…

Miss Piggy aerobics

That is supposed to be Miss Piggy in the unmistakable Jane Fonda aerobics pose and the caption on the belly reads: “Square meals make round people.”

Well, despite the warning, I have always had the habit of eating 3 square meals a day – a substantial breakfast, and rice and dishes for lunch and dinner. But yesterday, I felt like something different for a change, so I stopped by this stall outside Everise at the Pedada Commercial Centre near my house. If it’s of any interest to anybody, that particular branch has closed down and yesterday, I saw people shifting the display cabinets and what not out of the place.

Back to what I was talking about, there is this stall outside on the pavement selling fried kuihs and stuff and I bought these so-called Malaysian burgers at 3 for RM1.00…

They’re actually deep-fried buns with sambal and a slice of cucumber inside…

I can’t remember exactly when people started selling these here but that was quite a number of years ago and I used to like it very much at the time. Having not had it for a while, I thought they tasted real nice. I did not like the ti-piang though…

I am quite positive that I bought these at 4 for RM1.00 not too long ago, but these were 3 for a ringgit. Maybe the price has gone up again. It would not be so bad if they were nice but unfortunately, they were not. Definitely not worth the calories, I must say!

The or-kuih (yam cake), also 3 for RM1.00, wasn’t too bad though but I very much prefer the ones sold at the stall at Rejang Park…

Now these were really very nice – the bingka bandong (tapioca cake)…

It was also going for 3 for RM1.00, but the man said I could have the whole lot for RM2.00 and I accepted the offer. When I got home, I found that there were 10 generous slices!!! Wow! That’s a real good bargain…and the best part was it tasted nice!

So that was what I had for lunch yesterday, but do not worry! I did not finish the whole lot alone in one sitting! Lord have mercy! ROTFLMAO!!!
