I don’t know what’s wrong with my body… I always feel hungry at ungodly hours. I would blame it on my metabolism and my lifestyle. You see, I study, write, and work alot at night-when there’s no one to bother me.So… when my brain works hard, my body gets hungry easily and would demand me to re-fuel the energy by eating. Hmm… using the brain must be quite a strain on my body as I don’t really feel that way whenever I exercise. The hunger is… different, and much more demanding. It has to be satisfied or I’ll suffer terrible stomach-ache.
More often than not, I would hunt for something to eat to silence the screaming and keep myself from feeling uncomfortable and agitated.
It is not always convenient to be hungry at ungodly hours, especially when you are traveling or not in your own home, but I can say that I’m glad that I could always cook or go out and eat when I’m in my own comfort zone; Kuala Lumpur.
I would usually cook something simple but satisfying whenever I feel hungry, but whenever I’m not in the mood to cook up something in the kitchen,there’s always 24 hours mamak stalls that would be more than pleased to take orders from me.
The other day, I was feeling very, very hungry…but it was already 3.30am in the morning, and I was in one of those lazy mode and therefore, not in the mood to conjure something from the kitchen.
Instead of forcing myself to overcome the laziness, I persuaded my husband to drive us to the nearest mamak stall, and we had these:
Butter naan…with all the buttery and oily goodness. *GRINZ*
And yummylicious Tandoori chicken, fresh from the clay tandoor, served with onions and lime.
It was really a satisfying meal for me, and I can never be grateful enough that I live in a city that has 24 hours restaurant. My life would have been really miserable without such restaurants to cater my gastronomical needs at odd hours. Thank goodness for the people who have attended online cooking schools and can make food for everybody.
Cleffairy: Sleep when you’re sleepy, smile when you’re happy, cry when you’re sad and eat when you are hungry. Why must you follow the rules and deprive your body from what you need? You live only once, after all.
