I have read enough magazines to know that when it comes to dating, guys prefer going out with a woman who loves to eat. Apparently, a woman with a healthy appetite is more desirable than one who picks at her food.
The irony is, whilst they like a woman who eats, they also prefer her to be slim and attractive.
Now, does that sound like an oxymoron already? Finding a slim woman who eats like a horse is like looking for Cinderella to fit into a tiny pair of glass slippers.
I like eating and while I'm not very slim, I work hard at keeping my weight down. I also like a man who enjoys his food and admires a curvy woman. I'm glad CH falls in this category because when I am around a man with a tiny appetite, it makes me uneasy and self-conscious.
On normal days, my breakfast is a cup of coffee and small piece of bread. Lunch is a cup of oatmeal, followed by coffee with biscuits at 3pm. Finally, I have a proper home cooked dinner at 7.30pm. No snacks or junk food in between.
Now that doesn't sound like alot for a big girl like me, doesn't it? I may not eat alot but I discuss about food all the time. When I am traveling, I like to taste the local cuisine. I'm like a food presenter who goes on her food tasting rounds, sampling a little bit of this and that, everything in moderation. Then I blog about it.
Maybe I talk about food too much, some people like Conrad get the impression that I spend all my waking hours eating. When he saw Mother Hen and I discussing animately about food yesterday, he chipped in, "Now, Ting. If you go on eating like the way you do, you'll end up looking like a ..."
Good old Mother Hen jumped to the rescue, "Excuse me, but Ting only eats oatmeal for lunch!"
Yes, I felt vindicated! Giving them the biggest grin on earth, I rebutted, "Now Conrad, just because you don't eat anything, it doesn't mean I'm a glutton!"
He gulped, "Oats? You'll end up looking like a horse!"
Well, good thing he said "horse" instead of "pig" or he'll end up looking like a flattened Peking duck!
