I still remember 2 months ago as I was searching for korean seaweed at one of the hypermarkets in Kuantan , a lady customer who was beside me asked : " Berapa kilo boleh beli gula ni ? " I then replied " Saya tak tau . " I am not a regulat sugar user , 1 kg sugar can last up to 3 months in a glass jar in my kitchen . No one favours sweet hot tea/coffee/milo etc . So, we can live without coarse sugar . However , I pity those who sell kuih-muih and other food which contains sugar because they have to get special letter stating they are sellers who need more sugar than 2kg per person per trip to the shop .
Then , all of a sudden the price of coarse sugar increased with the increase of petrol . I don't remember the current sugar selling price but is has increased . So surprise ( actually tak surprise pun ) right there and then , sugar is abundant and everywhere to be found , no more 2kg / person . Shopkeepers smile broadly selling sugar as they are now getting more profits from the hike in sugar price ..........
That's coarse sugar ....
Even though I am not a sugar ' addict ' , I am a high sugar level carrier in my blood ... in other words I am a diabetic patient . It's been 8 years now that I take glucopage 850mg pills twice daily to control my sugar level . I have to refrain myself from drinking sweet drinks and have to avoid eating sweet food including starchy rice , noodles and other malay delicacies . Very hard to discipline myself since being a diabetic person I tend to favour sweet food and once in a while I'm craving for those icing and ice-cream, feeling like it's such a great pleasure to taste those cream from heavenly sweety shops .
I have tried so many other alternative medicines and herbs but ... I think the greatest cure could only be secured from ME , MY BODY , MY STRONG DETERMINATION .... I myself know what my body could eat and drink .. hopefully by writing this entry I'll be a strong person with a better self discipline to help myself avoiding those sweet but dangerous food from circulating in my blood vessels InsyaAllah .
That's all folks ...... sugar and sugar level .......... bye for now !!
