I’m hungry to win…


Today’s post is about hunger!

Yes, what a great topic to talk about. So, let’s talk about when I’m hungry.

When I’m hungry, I turn into one of three things:


1. A self-pitying rock

It’s late and I’m tired and I should be sleeping. But my stomach is growling something fierce. Too hungry to sleep, too tired to eat. I lie in bed like a rock, immovable and bemoaning the tragic irony of life.

2. A wilting flower

If I get hungry when I’m outside, I can’t lie down like a rock or people will throw stones at me. So I float about weakly in search of food, at risk of blowing away at the slightest breeze.

3. A monster

Sometimes, I turn into a monster when I’m hungry. That is, a variation of cookie monster. Except I don’t like nomming cookies as much as barbequed chicken wings and Big Macs. Or pizza. Or chocolate.

What do you turn into when you’re hungry?

Not a scary monster, I hope. I know people who get grumpy and irritable when they’re hungry.

Okay, I get grumpy and irritable if my meal is significantly delayed and I grow increasingly hungry. For stupid reasons like mad traffic jams. That is really annoying.

Well, let’s see what American footballers turn into when they’re hungry!

Watch this…



It’s funny! Although I had to watch it twice to get it because I didn’t know what the theme was the first time.

It gave me such a craving, though.

I started getting hungry when I watched the commercial and then even hungrier when I checked out the Snickers Hungerlings Attack website.


Snickers Hungerlings Attack


I was at my laptop, it was morning and I was wondering what to eat for breakfast. I was thinking cereal.

I browsed around the website and played the Hungerlings Attack game and then I started getting really hungry for Snickers.

I MSNed Piers, who was at work, and said, “I need Snickers!!”

A few hours later, during lunchtime, he delivered two Snickers bars to me! Such a happy day!




Eating it while playing the Hungerlings Attack game helped me get a good score.

Actually, I don’t know whether it’s a good score or not. I just think it must be pretty decent because I played 10 or 12 games and feel that I can’t do any better anymore.


Snickers Hungerlings Attack


Go give it a try and see if you can beat my score!

In the game, you’re a Hungerling (like a hungry monster) and you won’t be sated until you manage to grab and eat 10 Snickers bars.

It doesn’t take long to play. Less than half a minute per game. And you could win cool prizes if you get the best score during each contest period!

The contest ends at June 13 so you still have a week to perfect your score. No purchase or anything required so why not give it a go?

Good luck!




Oops. Did I make you hungry, too? =P

Hunger makes me go crazy


What crazy things do I do when I am suddenly hungry?


Eat a fork.

Camwhore in bed.



Eat bamboo leaves.

Go skating.

Inline skating


Well, all these things distract me from being hungry but I guess they don’t really solve the problem.

So, I’ll tell you what solves the problem.


When you’re suddenly plagued with hunger, it’ll be great to have a canister of Mister Potato Rice Crisps handy!

They look like potato chips but are actually made from a secret combination of potatoes and rice.

Rice is an Asian thing, right, so it’s fitting that we eat yummy rice snacks when we’re hungry, right? Mister Potato Rice Crisps is a healthy snack alternative between meals.

Stock a few canisters at home! You might suddenly get hungry while camwhoring. Camwhoring is very tough work, you know.

Bring some to the office. People get hungry in the office a lot, don’t they?

Well, my home is my office, so I have one fewer place to stock up. =P

Or leave some in the car (especially when you’re going on road trips)!

Better yet, bring a canister with you wherever you go.

Because you never know when you’ll suddenly get hungry. Better to be prepared, right?

Mister Potato Rice Crisps comes in four delicious flavours and features these awesome benefits:

  • No added MSG
  • No artificial colouring
  • Cholesterol and trans fat free
  • 20% less fat than conventional fried potatao chips
  • First of its kind in Singapore

The texture is almost like potato chips but crunchier. It’s also slightly thicker and more solid, giving you a more satisfying munch.

I love the taste!

Well, disregarding the different flavours and just talking about the aftertaste of the base chip, I’d say there is a very faint fragrance of rice, which leaves your mouth feeling happy and wanting more.

Ranking my favourite flavours:

  1. Sour Cream & Onion
  2. Flame Grilled BBQ
  3. Original
  4. Hot & Spicy

The Sour Cream & Onion is really very good. Love it to bits! Literally!

Eating Mister Potato Rice Crisps

Hello from Kuching

I had ambitiously planned to blog about my Kuching trip each night after returning to my hotel room, for three nights in a row.

As usual, I overestimate my endurance. Tonight’s my first night here and I am so tired I want to crawl under a rock and die.

Okay, maybe not exactly die. I’m looking forward to a forest trek tomorrow and death would be rather inconvenient.

Sleep would be good. After a long day of fun, touristy activities which started as early as 6 am (and I only slept 30 minutes last night), I am about as exhausted as a three-month-old party balloon.

Except I’m also famished. It is now 10:30 pm.

The reason I’m now unexpectedly famished is because we over-ate today.

Kenny Sia had bought us breakfast (Sarawak laksa) at 11:30 am and then lunch (Kuching kolo mee, rojak, sotong, siew mai) at 2 pm.

Yes, you didn’t read wrong. Kenny Sia was our tour guide today.

Then, after being ridiculously stuffed with two back-to-back meals, we were fed dinner onboard a cruise ship circa 6 pm.

I could hardly eat a bite and felt like donating my stomach’s contents to a herd of cows.

I ended up picking at my dinner, not eating much, stupidly forgetting that I would get hungry later in the night.

Which is why I suddenly found myself starving to death at 10:30 pm. I was already showered and in my jammies. And it didn’t take very long for me to convince myself that I really needed a Humongous Burger from the room service menu. (Yes, that is the actual name of the item.)

In fact, I am now eating my burger as I type this.

I am loving Kuching so far.

I took 300 photos today, a great deal of which I will share with you at such a time as I have no humongous burgers to distract me.

(It’s not really that humongous and I’m getting chilli sauce on my mouse pad.)

Humongous is this:

So, I have decided to just enjoy my holiday. The full story of my trip will have to wait till I’m done with the trip.

I leave you now with a teaser photo:

Makes you think of Goldilocks?
