My Diet Gone Helter Skelter


My brother did this to me. He brought a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts to my office. A case of sabotage, brotherly mischief or "let's see if cher can tahan or not" (let's see if big sister can resist or not). 

I looked at the box, I took a peek, I contemplated, ruminated and postulated. Should I give it away? The interns are rather skinny and they need these more than I do. Or shall I give it away to the nice Indon girls who work at the restaurant behind my office? Decisions, decisions. But no, these sugar laden treats came home with me.

Here's a pictorial of how the evening went.


In my kitchen. I stare at you, you stare at me.
Beh tahan liao. [I can't stand it anymore]
Hellooooo.......
Taking a deep breath....mmmm.....that one at the corner got nice pattern.
Half a dozen doughnuts. Eeny meeny miny moe......
One down five to go. 
Mmmmphh....nice! I'll have another one.
I'm still hungry. One more. Just one more.
Last one, last one. I'll keep these two for breakfast.
One for the road. I'll save the last one for breakfast.
I'll have my breakfast now. 
Kau tim sai. Suma pun moe chor. [Finito. No more] Uuurrrrppssssss......

Postscript : That evening I suffered from legs cramps and had my sleep interrupted. I swear I will not eat anymore doughnuts. Amen.

  1. OMG, I'm laughing reading your post from the beginning til the end.. I've never laughed so much before.. Your first sentence already buat me ketawa liao - "My brother did this to me".. I was like "did what like so big deal like that".. hahahahaha...

    6 pieces hor, "wa toh mm toh, wa siew mm siew" (not to say too many to be given away, but not to say too little if for own consumption).. If I were you, same, I won't give away.. I mean, 6 pieces only wor, tak cukup for distribution also, unless you cut and divide into 4 portions, and everyone gets some.. But no, sorry, brother buy wor, sure take home lor, kan? I like those with fillings in the centre ones (those without holes in the centre).. Imagine the fillings/cream oozing out on your first bite, ooohh la la..

    Wait, interrupted sleep? I once had apples before bedtime, and I had interrupted sleep and a bad dream.. Swore not to have apples anymore before bedtime..

    2. Errr, don't say how many boxes la.. Maybe just say how many pieces.. I think 8 kua.. I have tried finishing all 6.. If add 2 more, I think still ok..

    3. Louiz, funny ah? Haiyo, I love doughnuts but at the same time I am trying to lose weight. And as you said, brother give, so very sayang to give away. Ans I know I cannot eat just one or two. I have this bad habit when there is food, I have to finish it or else I cannot sit still. I actually prefer to traditional doughnuts without all these toppings. But still, a doughnut is a doughnut. I am sure you can also sapu 6 or maybe more. Didn't know apples can cause bad dreams hah...hah....

    4. Hey, I think we are so alike la.. Did we separate at birth? Hahaha.. When there's food, I must finish it, then only I'm "kam yuen".. During CNY, hubby bought cartons of Shandy and boxed drinks.. Everyday I take a few, out a few, in a few.. I told hubby "I don't like also, everyday drink a few cans of Shandy, then another few boxes of laici/soya, may
      as well faster finish it lah, then no need to drink, habis cerita".. True also you know.. Once everything habissttttt, then ok, "kam yuen" liao, no need to drink, all no need to drink liao..

    5. That's why in my house I do not keep any biscuits. kacang or potato chips and snacks. If there is anything like that, they will all "call" my name and I have to eat up until no more. Then only puas hati. But I still have a few bottles of Pop in the fridge. Bought it for my nephew and niece for the previous family gathering. Reason why it is still there is because it is too sweet and it doesn't taste good for me. Luckily.....

    1. come to think about it, 6 sugar ring i think i can still tahan.. but 6 of these fancy donuts, errr, i remember when Krispy Kreme first landed in Malaysia in Timesquare, a friend and i went to buy a dozen.. end up, each of us had one and took the remaining 4 home!! haha, even half way eating our only 1 donut already felt very jelak leh, cos too sweet already @_@"

    2. i actually find Epal Besar nicer because not that sweet, Kompany J also okay lah, and that old-school Donkey Donuts actually suits my taste also, haha.. but this one really too sweet for me lor.. and did you notice the donut fever has already gone, last time all queuing up in front of the shop, now all kena halau out of the shops and occupies stalls at one corner only in shopping malls :D

      Delete
    3. what Epal Besar and Co. J? Cannot say the name one meh?

    4. SK, if there were 10 doughnuts, all 10 will also disappear. I have a big stomach and can compete with our Princess Ribbon. I agree that this is too sweet. I prefer Dunkin Donuts too and I haven't had doughnuts for a very long time. I have not tried Big Apple and the other one you mentioned I am not familiar. Yah, I noticed DD and Big Apple outlet in 1-U is very quiet, no crowds. Seriously, I have to stay away from doughnuts or anything remotely resembling doughnuts for the next few months.

    1. Arthur, they are not really worth the calories, The old fashioned doughnuts are more to my liking but once in a while I do like something fancy. But no more after this!

  9. You really had a good appetite for dough nuts! You should have stayed away from the last two and kept them for breakfast....:)

    1. Hah...hah.....Cheah, you are so right! But I cannot stand having to wait till next morning to demolish the two doughnuts. I just had to eat them or else I can't sit still!

  10. Hi Phong Hong, I think it's not diet problem. It must be 'boh chiak boh tak' [not worthy to you if you don't eat]. Eat first, belakang kira, hehehe!. Another reason, no children in the house, if there is no chance you can have so many. Anyway, chin chia tak since these doughnuts are so...lovely.

    1. Kimmy, you are right! After all, we only live once and once in a while we should eat something we like. But I over did it, very "tham chiak" when it comes to doughnuts. But it is all eaten, no need to regret. Very "tat" since my brother gave them to me hee...hee...

  11. Oh no!! Phong Hong! How could you?! eat all the six doughnuts all by yourself!! should left at least one for me :DDD

  12. OMG...LOL...LOL...Phong Hong; you bad girl! You should have invited a few friends to share the best donuts in the whole wide world! (but then...I would have don the same)
    I can't get over the beautiful chocolate glazed ones, we only can get the plain glazed and the fly off the shelves in a couple hours from the supermarket...fresh donuts every day! Will have to google about these chocolate glazed ones; maybe I would have to take a ride over to their factory where they make them!

  16. Hi Phong Hong,
    You made me smile from the beginning to the end! I actually cannot believe it that you've finished all 6! When it came to the part of the last two pieces, I actually think that you would indeed save it for breakfast! Hahaha! You are so funny! You finished all 6!
    Naughty little "ti-ti"!! He knew that you would love your doughnuts! Hahaha!
    Now, whenever I see a doughnut, I would think of you! :)
