I have been having problems putting on the extra weight, since there's not a lot I care to eat. I'm perhaps an atypical Singaporean when it comes to food: I barely taste the food and I don't really care about what I'm eating, as long as it is healthy. As such, it's been hard to force feed myself. I usually eat till I've had enough, and that's it. There are few foods (especially foods available in England) which I am happy to eat and eat and eat.

Yesterday, however, as I wandered up and down the aisle of the local supermarket trying to figure something out, my eye lighted on one of the few foods I never tire of: Nutella! In a flash, I had it figured out. I love Nutella, and I love plain rich tea biscuits. Put them together and you would have a dynamite, fattening, combination of Nutella smeared on tea biscuits.

I feel so uncomfortable with this extra weight, but I'm sure when I hop back into the water this weekend I will be thankful for every ounce of wonderful, warm, protective blubber. If I want to swim like a whale*, I must resemble one!

Eat n train like a sumo-wrestler, Mr Thum. Checkout this website on how to pile on the blubber: www.tinajuanfitness.info/articles/011403.htm. All the best. Post a pic when you r at ur chubby-best.

Glad to hear you are slowly putting on weight, I always thought that you could do with a little more. I think you look better with more "buk-buk", you can change the fat to muscle!!

To keep well you have to eat well!

All praying for you at home. Will keep you separately posted on the swim at Farrer.

God be with you.
