Weight can be tricky to maintain, we concede.
Heck, how many times have we probably lamented to others about how we’ve gotten chubbier over Circuit Breaker?
And it’s not just us feeling the need to hit a certain number on that dreaded weighing scale.
Google Trends reflects an increasing number of interest in the search term ‘weight loss’ over the past 15 years.
See? It’s not just me.
Though it’s not that bad for us.
Those in the public eye might find themselves thinking about their weight even more, especially with their lives broadcast for all to critique.
Although each and every one of us probably could relate, given the yearly CNY dinners with relatives who remark about how we’ve gained weight recently.
While filming the latest episode of Channel 8’s YiFong and Eleanor’s Kitchen, YiFong said in a behind-the-scenes clip that her daughter Eleanor gained weight recently.
If she’s “fat”, what are we?
Quan explains that Eleanor should stay within a specific weight.
She says, “As an artiste, she can never weigh more than 43kg. Once she weighs more than that, then (she needs to) lost weight.”
Perhaps we’d need YiFong’s discipline to help us finally lose those Circuit Breaker pounds.
She then gets her daughter to step on the scales and check her weight.

But not before Eleanor protests that her outfit that day is especially heavy.
Of course like any other Asian parent, Quan also mentions she’s worried that Eleanor becomes too skinny, which isn’t healthy.
As Eleanor steps on the weighing scale, it was added that if Eleanor’s above 43kg, she’d tell her not to eat already and to sleep instead. At which Eleanor chuckles, possibly in disbelief.
After all, it does seem like she’s quite the foodie at heart, with her mum saying she eats biscuits inside, presumably, her room.
Upon glimpsing her daughter’s weight shown, YiFong’s mouth widens in shock.
What results is a flurry of comments -Quan Yifong comments that she finds it “so embarrassing” while Eleanor insists on her clothes are “SUPER thick”, even grabbing her mum’s hand to feel the thickness of it for herself.
Comments on the video posted by Mediacorp Channel 8 mostly disagreed with YiFong’s words, with one individual points out height is another factor for consideration as well, and another commented, “Oh, my God. She’s so skinny and she’s fat?”
Another lengthy individual expresses their opinion that no one should “put pressure on their child to have weight expectations in order to fit social formalities”, emphasising a healthy lifestyle and confidence instead.
Hopefully, for Eleanor, it was just a comical joke for the sake of entertainment. Now, excuse us while we go look for a snack.
Since we’re on the topic of restrictions, here’s what PM Lee has to say about the current Covid-19 measures:
