Another year older

..... and hopefully another year wiser.

But one thing I know for sure, it's another pound or even more heavier!!

We celebrated my birthday with a dinner at the Greenhouse, Ritz Carlton last week. The Greenhouse serves a lovely seafood buffet, with an extensive selection. Needless to say, we ate, and ate, and ate. Not so much to get our money's worth (it was definitely not a cheap buffet!), but to try as much as we could of what they had to offer - from Boston Lobsters, crays, chilli crabs, drunken prawns, black pepper prawns, oysters, not counting the Japanese selection of sashimi and sushi, Indian selection of naan and curries, roasts, pasta and the local specialties. For deserts they even served made-on-the-spot souffles!!

There was just too much to eat, and there was no way we could fit "just-one-piece" of everything into our stomachs!!. After that dinner, I told hubby that we are not going for another of these buffets for a long time to come.

I have been slim all my life. But over the last few years I have, on the average, put on close to 2 kg a year. At the rate I am going, I will weigh close to 80kg even before I turn 60! And, I just dont like having to breathe in and hold my breath just to button my jeans!!

Happy belated BD, SAHM! Many healthy, blessed years to come, minus inches to jeans. Yep! Keep that happy vibe all the time!

Gee, you got me drooling with all that buffet details. Sigh...

Hugs, and God bless! =)

A year wiser definately. Like smile when you are baking so yr children will know that's your hobby/pastime AND NOT scolding. With that scrumptious buffet, you also know that you need to eat an extra spoon of oats every morning.
