I stood in front of the unforgiving mirror and scorned at my added weight.
My ass has increased, but not in a JLo like of way,
No, in a Samoan sort of way, here there, everywhere.
Throw in the hips and the thighs,
Auoi kafefe, I have a lot of work to do before I can hits the catwalks of Milano this summer (in like, Never).
So I decided that today, would be the start of my health regime, ...nothing drastic, just eating healthy, exercise after work and going to sleep early, eating dinner earlier and reduce carbs.
I was in the right frame of mind, and spirit: I am on the right track. Wooohoooo!
Then the door opens and Aunty Evo noisily plonks her shopping on the table:
She's brought some breakfast: Panipopo, pagikeke and .....suafa'i (which I hate with a burning passion).
Now this is where I can confidently say that Samoans don't just get fat.
They like to get fat...TOGETHER with other Samoans.
I had these angry thoughts and tell Evo off that I am trying to have a healthy lifestyle.
She smiles and drops 2 panipopos on my plate "Eh, don't waste the food, these ones are really hot and dalicious, just have a bite".
...Goddess to Base: Healthy Mission aborted, Start tomorrow.
