PETALING JAYA: April 25, 2008
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng (pic) has lost about 10kg since the general election.
He used to wear size 37 or 38 trousers but now he is three to four sizes smaller.
“Now I have to wear size 33 or 34. I have to look for the smaller pairs of trousers. I threw all the small sizes away (previously),” he told reporters after a press conference here yesterday.
When one of the reporters asked if he had lost weight since the elections, he replied: “Oh yes, I have. Do you think I have lost weight since the last time you saw me? Have I shrunk (in size)?”
On whether he was eating or skipping meals, Lim quipped: “I wonder myself.”
“Just now at the Conference of Rulers, they gave me a lot of stuff to eat. I was just completely overwhelmed with food. I feel very full now,” he said.
