Bigger is Happier

I'm still getting comments on how I'm "bigger." Although it doesn't make me feel better, I found out that this is a compliment, and to them I appear more beautiful than when I first arrived. People in Cambodia who gain weight are also considered happier. Little do they know that my body is not Cambodian and gaining weight means a) I've been a little depressed and b) I've eaten too much Cambodian fried food. (It's hard to find anything else and when you can't cook for yourself, you've got to take what you can get.) Needless to say, I've never felt so self conscious about such things in my life.
