...even on an empty stomach, you will still eat so much food that you won't need to eat for the rest of the day. at least that's what happened to me. we made six dishes, but after cooking the first dish (penang curry, pounding your own paste with a mortar and pestel) and eating it, i was already full and starting to get sleepy. 4 hours later i was just in a haze: hot, drowsy, so full that i'd explode if i ate another bite. i walked back to my hotel and slept for many hours, not even bothering to go out for dinner.
to think, i have another class tomorrow!
