Culinary Epiphany

I was having my lunch outside my campus today. (Saw Alex and Xavier again. I swear they're stalking me. Anyways, that's not the epiphany I am going to talk about.) I had Chinese food for lunch, tofu, vege and Siew Yok. Dem nice Siew Yok too but pity I can't eat the fatty part. Have to watch my waist as Alex constantly reminding me about it. Then it hit me, Chinese food makes me sleepy. I know you'll say it's all in my head but it isn't. It really does makes me sleepy. Even now as I am writing this entry, my eyes are collapsing and my mind is venturing into Slumbler Land. I drank a cup of coffee just now but it's not working... How am I to study?!

I started thinking of other food that makes me sleepy. Indian food makes me sleepy anytime of the day. Whether for lunch or mamak, it always puts me to sleep. Perhaps it's the carbo induced sleepiness or fat induced sleepiness. I don't know. Perhaps that is India's secret plot to conquer the WORLD~~~ Put everyone to sleep with Chicken Masala and Chutney and march right into every major city in the WORLD~~~

However, Malay food just fills my stomach. No adverse side effects or anything unless of course the dish itself becomes a hangout joint for flies and other pests. Malay food tend to invite these bugs more so compared to Chinese and Indian food. Hmmm... Maybe that's why it's oh sooo delicious? I love love love Tempoyak Durian and ulam and sambal belacan. Yum yum yum.

I can eat Wang Lee Hom anytime, anywhere. He is just sooo delicious. And waiter, I would like my Wang Lee Hom rare, thank you.

Err at least you have Sleepiness-Induced-by-XX-Food. I am sleepy ALL THE TIME.

Caffeine even speeds up the process.

Love my BBQ non-halal pork anytime! Been fasting red-meat for way too long.

And dude, Lee Hom's mine alright? *crunches fist*

Funny, coz I got a Malay teacher who once told us that she felt sleepy after eating nasi lemak. Maybe you're just bored with the same food you ate since young.
