I Am A Doughnut Idiot

Remember about my post on Singaporeans being doughnuts idiots? Today, I succumbed to being one... After my post, my ego told me that I would be rather caught dead than walk around carrying bags of "inferior" doughnuts. Today, I didn't mind being caught dead... I walked around with these...

... which were from...

I had tried this newly opened doughnut outlet in front of MacDonalds at Clementi Central. It was awfully small, icing was a tad sweet, overpowered the dough (I think the main reason was there wasn't enough dough because the doughtnuts are really tiny) and the dough lacked oomph.

Blah blah, I didn't practiced what I preached. But I wanted to buy breakfast for tomorrow... I was tired after school, carrying a bag weighing 5kg, really lazy to walk further down to a confectionary, and even lazier to walk down a flight of steps to a confectionary, which meant I had to climb up the flight of steps later. So the alternatives were to buy either doughnuts, 3 for $2 pastries or min chang kuay. Since Dear was buying ice-cream and I was craving for doughnuts and yes, I was lazy, I fell prey to the "inferior" doughnuts.

As for the issue of a local weekly magazine which had an article about doughnuts, I went ahead and tried the one which had the same amount of stars as my favorite, Pop Doh at Takashimaya B2. The icing wasn't too sweet, which was good and it blended well with the dough. It was a big big pity that the dough wasn't up the my expectations.

I didnt know there was a doughnut outlet there! Been a while since I last been to Clementi :)

But speaking of doughnuts - the overhyped food fads, when was the last time since you seen a bubble tea shop?

Its been a while since I've seen one here. They are a dying breed :|

Rinaz! Hihi!
The donut shop is newly opened, less than a month ago.
Is SweetTalk considered a bubble tea shop? Anyway, I sorely miss the frothy, thick bubble tea with chewy pearls that was in Wisma Atria when I was in secondary school. It was kinda expensive then lah, but it was damn good.

Daphne, I think I can conclude you have a sweet tooth... hehe...
