I have discovered why Coco hasn't been eating her food. She has developed a taste for the sweet and salty and didn't think much of my tasteless boiled chicken. She survived on dog titbits and sweet cookies for weeks but surprisingly didn't lose that much weight - only 0.5kg. Wawa on the other hand has put on 3 to 4kg. Inspite of unrestrained eating, I have only put on 0.5kg and my BMI shows that I am still (grossly) underweight. My overweight and obese colleagues (not insulting them but that's what their BMI indicated) think, sleep and breathe diet. They eat very little but have not lost any weight at all. The nutritionist who gave us a talk said we must eat a great variety of food. I agree. She says for breakfast, make sure we eat at least 7 types of food. I disagree! I am more for food combining and eating one type of food at a time so as not to overwork our system. In theory, I am all for natural hygiene principles but in practice.....hey, that's protein + carbohydrates in the picture! A no-no! But I was very hungry after all that housework....

Well, not all is bad about courses and conferences. We get to meet old friends, we escape work for a few days, we get to eat, although the food was as bland as the speakers. We are presented with a certificate and most important of all, we get our "points". Someone at the top suddenly had this bright idea about continuous learning and points. I don't know what will happen if we don't achieve the quota. Maybe they will hang us by the thumbs.
