I had a most interesting (and horrifying) experience on my recent overnight trip to the Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam.
As you can see from my earlier posts - I have been having a lovely time eating the wonderful foods here (mainly healthy too!).
The hotel that I stayed in had scales in the room (beside the lounge), so out of curiosity I thought I'd check if I'd gained any weight. Before I continue, I must point out that according to Australian height/weight guidelines, I'm well within the healthy weight range, even a little on the low side!! And I'm sure those of you who know me would agree with this!!
So imagine my horror when I jumped on these scales. My weight was a tiny bit up (no problem), but clearly written on the scales is the recommended weight for your height - and according to Vietnamese scales, I'm very overweight!!! What a shock!!! (I'm actually 5kg over the maximum recommended weight for my height)! How can this be?????
Time to head out for coffee and cake, and put this experience behind me!!
