Here is 芋ケンピ= deep-fried and sugar-coated sweet potato. Mei-Shun enjoys it by various makers, continues to compare one with another. This time they are processed in Kumamoto, where one of her favorite mascots Kuma-mon comes from. Not so sweet, makes her try more. What a temptation, when she would like to put off 2 bags of sugar within this year!
Mei-Shun read several sites mentioning the difference between these similar desserts, found a clear answer. “Parfait” comes from French to mean a perfect dessert; layered ice cream, fruit/chocolate sauce and whipped cream with cornflakes on the top. “Sundae” used to be sold on Sundays; ice cream decorated by various toppings. Well, which would you like, or would you mind choosing one?
Thanks to a not-so-bad figure on the scale, Mei-Shun treated herself to ice cream after lunch. However, since one of her best friends Professor M abstains from both alcohol and sweets by his physician’s advice, they were unable to share joy of “Devil’s Chocolate Parfait”. By the way, this site to feature dance, cat and music has been occupied by desserts for these serial three days to conclude August!
Ame-chan, Mei-Shun’s beloved molar extracted the other day, gave TWO BAGS of sugar in a week. No impunity must have been allowed to such a careless owner of that little, milky-white girl meaning both “candy” and “rain” by her name in Japanese. She had a slight fever, no appetite for a few days from the doleful process. And it followed — she burst into eating. Now half of the disastrous bags has gone.
The other day, Mei-Shun was told “d, e, b” meaning “fat” in Japanese and what’s more, TWICE by a vocabulary textbook she has used for a decade. Such a severe comment from her mentor — certainly, she felt tired in the morning from last Monday to Thursday, took a nap after breakfast or before lunch. She gained back a half of sugar back, yet still stay beyond the maximum line to be called so.
Partly thanks to many summer days (over 25 degrees Celsius) and a few mid-summer days (over 30 degrees) in recent 4 weeks, Mei-Shun has reached the goal weight. So happy to see the scale, a bit worried about the celerity — it seems a bit too short a time to lose nearly 3 bags of sugar. She must be very careful to remain in her current condition for at least one month before going further.
Mei-Shun has asked too much: she has a lot of dresses unzipped in her closet, scores never read on Ms. Piano. Feeling sorry for them, she decided to stop ordering any of them this year. Trend in vogue? Well, it does not matter to her who knows what goes well with her, lives with the best adviser. The former would encourage her who tends to make herself fit clothes.
