LCGOTW: Yogurt Petite (Mango)

Yoghurt PEtite

It's been long since I last posta a LCGOTW (Low Calorie Goodie Of The Week).
Mum bought 4 boxes of Yogurt Petite. It's yummy. The centre part tasted like those dried mango. However, I think this is not close to the taste and texture of the real "ice-cream". It tasted more like whipped cream of higher density. haha

Yogurt Petite (Mango)
49kcal for 1
abt $1 for one.
Found in supermarkets

Calories of Mooncake

The best mooncake I have ate must be those from Raffles Hotel. It's heavenly. Everyone should try.. But I don't think I am going to buy any this year. Just look at the calories of mooncakes you will know why.

1 Mooncake, durian, plain, baked = 819kcal
1 Mooncake, ham and mixed nuts, baked = 999kcal
1 Mooncake, lotus seed paste, plain, baked = 716kcal
1 Mooncake, lotus seed paste, plain, snow skin = 983kcal
1 Mooncake, lotus seed paste, with four egg yolks, baked = 975kcal
1 Mooncake, lotus seed paste, with one egg yolk, baked = 788kcal
1 Mooncake, lotus seed paste, with two egg yolks, baked = 890kcal
1 Mooncake, red bean paste, plain, baked = 825kcal
1 Mooncake, vegetarian, baked = 874kcal
1 Mooncake, yam paste, flaky pastry, baked = 799kcal

Basically, 1 Mooncake has more calories than a Mcspicy burger. Furthermore, the size of the mooncakes here are the average size one..

So, are you sure you still want a mooncake?

I think I will pay Taka Square a visit to just taste the bite-size samples they have there for my craving.. Heee.

Let Them Eat The Cake

After C.S.I came to a boring end, I have nothing else to look forward to.
Finally, I decided to try watching HOUSE, and man, I was addicted immediately.

Started watching it at the last 3 episode of the latest season. But lucky for me, AXN is repeating the older episodes of HOUSE, so I get my daily dosage.

HOUSE is very much like C.S.I and Scrubs come together. 2 of my favorite shows. And I also love the solitude and bitterness that is unique to this serial.

Apart from the sarcasm, and wit of the limping hallucinating man, I also found myself worshipping 13, a female doctor with Huntingtons. She is just so pretty. It's the kind of pretty I would want in myself. Confident, smart and wicked.

Sorry I digress.

The whole purpose of this blog post is that there is this episode, Let Them Eat the Cake, that someone actually had a gastric bypass surgery. The lady apparently had a Hereditary condition, and have to maintain a high carbohydrates diet to survive.

To cut the story short, the lady was given two options. To undo the bypass, which would save her life, but all the carbohydrates and fat that is necessary will only make her obsese again in no time. Another option is to rely on drugs that would not treat her, nor make her healthy. It would only manage her symptoms.

Well, which do you think the lady in question chose?

I guess the answer is pretty obvious for someone who chose gastric bypass in order to get skinny.

The thing I like about HOUSE is how it would put these ethical and life situations in front of you in a TV serial.
It is not merely getting fat. It meant trapping in a body of hell that would be beyond being fat. It will make you extremely overweight, maybe someday you will grow more than 200kg, and you will be on a wheelchair as your legs could no longer carry your weight. Or would you rather bear with those symptoms?

(Symptoms include reddish-purple urine, acute neurological problems (typically episodic confusion and sensory changes), and attacks of acute abdominal/nerve pain. Around 30% suffer photosensitive skin eruptions with nail involvement; these can lead to permanent scarring.)

I guess sometimes getting a treatment can be more painful than living with the pain.

What about you? What would you choose?

Blower's daughter

Great singing. However, I feel its the song that made the whole performance. Great song.
Damien Rice's version of the song is much more haunting.

Turns out this cute guy used to be fat..

Kopi Queen

I use to drink only milk for breakfast. But lately I had to drink coffee every morning as I have trouble keeping myself awake and energize for work.

My favorite is the Kopi, coffee with condensed milk. It's only 154kcal for 1 cup weighing 255g. But of course, that is not enough to keep me full for the rest of the morning. I will need another cup of milk. But after I did my calculations, my calories only increase by about 54 for adding coffee into my diet. Not too bad huh.

Calories of Ee Mee

The calories of Ee Mee depends on how you cook it.
The average ee mee we get from those tze char煮炒 store is about 10007kcal.
Cantonese fried ee mee is more, about 1321kcal.

I think you can -200kcal for the oil you used to stir fried it to get the soupy version. But of course, if your soup contains lard or something like that, then.....
