The other day I found a stack of old CDs that I’d burned the last time I’d reformatted my computer.(Which explains why these days people on my msn keep seeing me listen to songs that were popular 4 years ago wtf)
These were songs I’d listened to avidly to while I was a firstie at Mount Holyoke and you know how music affects you and brings you back to times before!
First year seems like a lifetime away!
I lived in a teensy single room converted into a double with my roommate Beth.
And I was so homesick you don’t even know. Even when I had like an hour between classes, I would rush back to my room and log on to MSN to talk to everyone because that was the time everyone in Malaysia would be online. L
And god the amount of food I ate. Every dinner I’d have two full plates of chicken/fish and pasta/rice AND a bowl of salad AND sometimes another bowl of cereal!
AND THEN I would come back and eat more snacks. = =
I think part of it was homesickness, part of it was boredom, part of it was my body attempting to pile on the fat to keep warm, and part of it was because I had the freedom away from Mummy Ooi to buy whatever I liked.
And this was my favorite after-dinner, before-dinner, breakfast, after lunch food:
Sinful delight wtf.
I bought huge boxes of Oreos (oh the wonders of living in the US) and would eat it all in two or three sittings. (One box was probably 5 of these rolls put together)
I think my above dietary habits were what caused me to gain 7 kg within 3 months wtf. But I desperately needed it ok because I was 32 kg before I went to the US (32!)
But they were so good! They were my source of energy on blustery blizzardy days when it was too cold to even leave the building to grab food.
They were my comfort food when I cooped up in my room watching sad Korean movies on my laptop.
Or they were what got me through the nights I stayed up writing papers.
Those were the days.
Since then, things have changed.
Firstly, I used to look like this:
And Lolo looked like this:
(With duct tape stuck on his head wtf)
And now, I look like this:
And Lolo looks like this:
“Hi guys.” Wtf. (He’s wearing the skirt I made in Kemahiran Hidup in Form 1 wtf)
And I’ve graduated from college!
But I still love Oreos.
And I don’t even like sweet stuff! I hate cakes of any kind, pastries, mousse, most cookies cos I find most desserts too jelak.
But Oreos are different Oreos are made of chocolate Chocolate is god And so is the white sugar stuffing inside I swear to god the people at the Oreo factory put a drug/magic charm into those cookies.
My Oreo and me.
“Why should YOU get to eat all the Oreos!”
“Take that!” *tucks Oreos into skirt
“Si pai kia are you playing with fire” wtf.
But we’ve made our peace now! Share and share alike <3
