Toast to Brighten Up A Saturday Morning


My instructor offered to move all my classes to early in the morning after seeing me sweating like a little piglet during my previous lesson.

I guess my low threshold of heat is obvious without me having to say anything. :|

My classes now start at 6.30am, before the sun even comes up, and finish by 8.30am.

I just had another 2-hour session this morning, and if I were to sum it up in a sentence, it would be - I suck!

I'm serious. I have no motor coordination skills what-so-ever, and boy does it show!

I felt like a complete retard the whole time. How could something so easy to others seem almost impossible for me to master?

The only thing that I looked forward to all morning was for Bee to come pick me up for breakfast.

On that note, I have to mention that Kopitiam 1950 in SS2 serves the most devilish roti bakar (Malaysian-style toast). It comes with half a centimeter thick of butter!

Sinful, yes, but oh-so-good! Truly befitting of a glutton like yours truly. Hehe.

(I'll be sure to take a picture of it next time, IF I remember.)

Bee disapproves of it, but I guess he didn't have the heart to say no to me seeing how I looked like the air has been let out of my balloon after the lesson.

So for now, I get to have the fat-loaded toast with teh tarik (Malaysian-style milk tea) to compensate for the stressful morning I've just had.

Till the next time.

It was well-deserved ;)
Good thing you have your classes scheduled earlier now!
I personally like getting up super early, before the city wakes up :)

Boohoo, this post so reminds me of the food I had during a short trip to Ipoh last year!

Your classes sounded very physical. LOL. Anyway, I hope you'll be able to get through the whole course, no matter how hard it takes. I'm sure after that you'll think it's all worth it. :) And welcome back to Malaysia! :))

Wow. That's really early. Your instructor is nice enough to wake up so early for you :P.

6.30am? what?
That's too early!
I sleep around 4.30am on weekends!

Ellen: I'm the opposite, hun. I HATE getting up early. But I guess I hate the heat even more, so it's the lesser of two evils. Haha.

Iamthewitch: Lol. No, sweetie, it isn't anything physical at all. My motor coordination skills just suck too bad that I struggle to master something that pretty much everyone else can do easily. :(

MisSmall said...

Emotionalistic: I think her classes start as early as 6am. I take comfort in knowing that there is someone else besides me who hates the heat too. Haha.

Josephine: Lol. That's when I normally go to bed too, even on weekdays. When I'm not working, of course.

Like I've said, between baking in the heat and getting up early, the latter is the lesser of the two evils. :)
