Venting

Eat. Read. Shop.
I was blessed with one of those freakishly huge faces. I never looked thin enough at any point in time because although my weight changes, my face always stays irritatingly humongous. So, anyway, lately, I've lost quite a bit of weight and I know I'm not imagining it because I have now been able to fit in US size 2-4 jeans and XS-S tops.

See? Not making it up. So, moving on. I currently weigh 118 lbs. I do know what I look like, thank you very much. For one, I've been a proud owner of a mirror for oh I don't know how long now. And also, I'm not blind. So no, I'm not saying I'm thin. I'm thinNER now than I was a few months ago. By the way, there really is no point in this post other than to self-indulge so I apologize for wasting anyone's time! You can leave if you like, I won't mind.
That's me below, taken about a week ago. Complete disaster! I have not been eating bird food for the last 3 months only to look bigger than I actually am in photos. The face, well, it is what it is, there's nothing I can do about that, but the dress, well apparently, the color red, an empire-style dress and I do not go well together.

Yes, I have a bit of a muffin-top and bat wings going on and by no stretch of the imagination do I see myself even close to being skinny. But I'm not fat. I know I'm being shallow and pathetic but I don't even care. It's just some people don't bother with courtesy anymore these days. Stop calling me fat, would ya?! Seriously, other than for being mean and rude, I really don't see any reason why you would tell someone they're fat. So there, I've said my piece. Everybody can express their opinion, duh! But just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Resto love: DimDimSum Dim Sum Specialty Store

On our 2011 trip to Hong Kong, the hubs and I subsisted solely on McDonald's, so during our recent trip, we at least did some research and tried to find good places to eat. At the top of our list, DimDimSum Dim Sum Specialty Store. They had won TimeOut's best dim sum in Hong Kong award and also made it to Newsweek's 101 Best Places to Eat Around The World. If there's any doubt about that, it goes away the moment you step inside the restaurant as photos of Anthony Bourdain and other renowned chefs as well as mentions in various magazines were plastered all over the walls.

I love their egg custard buns! I will go back to Hong Kong just for those yummy little piggies.

Their steamed shrimp dumpling (Har Gow/Hakaw) is almost as good as Le Ching's, not their chili garlic sauce though, Le Ching's trumps any other chili garlic sauce, at least in my opinion.

My dad for some reason thought he was ordering pancit. Go figure!

The food for me was OK, not as good as Le Ching's but their piggy custard bun is really a must-try!
