Our silly conversation (2)

22 Nov

Malam itu lagi, 21.30 waktu Abu dhabi dan xxx waktu Gabon (eh di Gabon bukan ya si Uti, lupa saya), kami berbincang-bincang seperti biasa. Update gosip sedikit, berhubung sedang berada di negeri seribu satu malam dan Uti sedang berada dibelahan dunia lain, tak banyak gosip yang bisa kami perbincangkan. Topik malam ini adalah kadar gizi dalam makanan yang ada di MLC.

Y: Ti, dulu kau waktu school makannya gimana?

U: Maksud kau? yaa makan ajaa.

Y: Iyee, I know..Maksud aku ko kau bisa tetep kurus? Kan makanan di MLC banyak.

U: Yaa aku milihnya nasi atau kentang trus lauknya satu.

Y: Hah? ko bisa gitu ti? Ko bisa kau tahan? aku aja ngeliat ayam, jadi pengen ayam, trus liat ada ikan tambah ikan lagi.

U: Buseet, kaga kenyang apa yaa?

Y: Iyee, ini aja udah naik 5 kg sejak pertama ke MLC, celana udah pada sempit. Artinya perlu beli celana baaru HAHHAHAHA

U: 5 kg? udah kaya KARUNG BERAS ahahahhahaa.

Sial, saya dibilang karung beras. Berarti resolusi akhir tahun ini bertambah lagi, setelah sedikit berhasil dengan penggunaan PONDS, saya harus memulai untuk berniat dan berusaha sepenuh hari untuk menurunkan berat badan. Wish me luck guys 🙂

Ok, the journey has begun. We wanted to try some local food or let say gulf food that my instructur has recommended. It was near blue tower plaza, so we decided to walk to the restaurant and it was 45 degree C, it was damn hot baby. In the restaurant  no woman was there, it was awkward for us to be the only foreign girls who know nothing about that lebanese food. We opened the menu and we were lost in translation, they got kebab (i know that one), shawarma (i know that also), Kaffa, and any lebanese food (you named it, they have it). I asked the waiter about lebanese flower grill because it sounded nice and i was sure that it was the best dish from this restaurant, so i just gave a shot. He said it was great and it served many kinds of grill. Alma, she decided to have a chicken grill. They served an arabic bread for our appetizer, white sauce, lebanese salad, and arabic veggies. It was hard for us to not to laugh because we had no idea about all of those stuffs, we tried the veggies, and we kept make a funny face which means it tasted weird.

Here came out dish, they served a LAMB in front of me, i was faint for a while and thought how I am going to finish this stuffs. They gave me a LAMB, not A LAMB but, a grill LAMB, LAMB chopped, bread with LAMB, fried LAMB, every kinds of LAMB in a big portion. I HATE LAMB for sure 100%. Alma was laughing when she saw my face up side down. When her meal came, we were shocked, they gave her a half body of chicken. That was too much for us. And at the end, we werent finish our meal, we only ate like a quarter of that and went away. Lesson learn for that stupid unorganized plan was NEVER GO TO “you dont know what food are you gonna eat” ALONE. We realized that we had to invite our Arabian friend to save us next time. Lebanese foods are highly recommended for the people who loves LAMB.

PS: They have a GREAT-AWESOME lebanese cocktail 🙂

Ok, this is what me and my roomate always do. We go for lunch, eat all of the lamb and briyani things that they are served. Then stealing the fruits especially ORANGE jajjjaajja. On our first day, we bought a grocery in al-Falah plaza, we bought a bunch of fruit, orange, banana, and apple. Why? We want to live such a healthy way in this dessert. After a few day, we realize that we can get the fruit from our canteen in MLC, yippiii, save the money for shopping. Since we always take the orange everyday, we feel like we have an orange farm in our kitchen. Unfortunately is not as easy as the way it should be, we cant resist doritos with cheez flavor, candy, kitkat, snickers, pepsi, subway, and of course mie goreng. I influence my roomate to eat our lovely mie goreng (she call it soup btw). She love it and now buy her own mie goreng hahahha. You better look our healthy food.

Look, I am tanned, fat, and yet beautiful

Just say, I am truly asian with that tanned skin (aka hitam dalam bahasa indonesia). Well, I am going to give a brief description about who my classmate are: Alma Rodriguez (US), Justin Loven (US), Ylide Mendoza (Mexico), Daniel Sol (Mexico), Aleksey Borisenko (Russia), Alexandr Echkalov (Russia), Larisa Kochmar (Russia), Lilia Gimaeva (Russia), Mikhail Morozov (Russia), Huang Du Rou (China), and Ahmed Sabet (Egypt). See, from that list as you can see, I am the only one who has a truly-original-sunmade tanned skin hahhaha.

It is ironic tho, my friends keep saying that I used to be very very damn care about my skin color and wight. I even did not want to be expose to the sun when I was in college. I am looking for a shadow everytime I walk, walking at noon is a big no no, and even I am using a very special approved reccomended skin whitening (balabiah bano). I also used to control my food, no supper, no ice cream, no sop kaki kambing, everything is limited. Now, my life turns up side down, I work when the uncontrolable sun is shining, where no where to hide, no tree, offshore equipment, with scheduled breakfast, lunch and dinner, and no sports at all. I gained 5 kg in 3 months, that was horrible. So lets put on my end of this year resolution which is USING PONDS and CONTROL YOUR FOOD SORAYA hahhahaha.
