Note: Penang nuffnang gathering was a success, sadly there were people who didn’t know the meal limit was RM15 and therefore ‘forgot’ to pay when they go back, so Timothy was kind enough to foot the remaining bill. Bless his soul..
And I can’t believe there are bloggers who thought I work for nuffnang. o.O
No I am not going to blog about the gathering this time round. Because…. I’m too lazy to upload my photos to the pc~~ Haha
But here’s a preview anyway,

Just had lunch with Timothy, Samantha, Kenny and IcyQueenGoddess, and by god, Timothy’s mom can whip the BEST death-inducing curry noodle in the history of Penang!!! It’s the finest creation made by human since the invention of paper clips. GOD!! Why!!! Now I can never eat another curry noodle~~~ *drown in sorrow*
It is that nice. I am not exaggerating; they bought the best cha siew too to mix with the noodle. I wish I can ‘ta bao’ back to KL. And I can’t get my hands off the huge tub of Haagan Daaz green tea ice-cream (thinking of buying one myself, but realize my freezer is not big enough to store such a big tub *pout*).
Kenny is walking as though someone just stick a pole up his ass. Serve him right for blogging four hours before his marathon when he was suppose to be in bed!!
Back to my topic, after the confession on my profound love to the best doughnut in the world, I have received quite a number of feedbacks that somewhere in Malaysia, in our own very PJ, there lies treasures to be unfold. An outlet that is second best to none and almost as good as the king of doughnuts is hidden in the depths of none other than our very own The Curve shopping complex.
So I decided to hunt down this, so called queen of doughnuts, outlet by the name of Big Apple one day.
The expedition took place few weeks ago; I made a dinner appointment at The Curve with some friends just so I could get myself a bite of this delicious doughnut for my appetizers.
After obtaining my direction from the concierge, I doubtfully made my way to the back of T.G.I. Friday’s and saw a beautiful fountain but still no sign of the restaurant.
As I walked towards the fountain, I took a left look and Bingo! I spotted it!
Over-enthusiastically, I walked up the place and browse the selections of doughnuts they have to offer.
I was so excited I couldn’t decide which to choose. So I asked for their best selling doughnut.
Mmm… sounds yummy
So I bought that to eat in and another Orea flavour to take away. (just in case)
I sat down, while trying to hide my excitement, I took my first bite and….
No angels singing… Nothing…
How shall I put it, the doughnut is nice, tasty, banana flavour compromises the dark chocolates… But…. Well…. It just isn’t what I had expected. Coming at a price of RM2 per doughnut, same price to Dunkin Donuts, I would say it is reasonable. I guess it is unfair to judge since I put in too much expectation out of it, but seriously, compare to Krispy Kreme, there is simply no competition.
It could be just my preference; I find the bun for Krispy is way better flavoured and filling than Big Apple, Big Apple’s bun texture is airy, soft and airy. It’s like you’re biting into nothing and it can hardly make you feel like you’ve eaten anything.
I ate the take-away doughnut cause I felt rather empty eating the first one
So yea, quite disappointed. But if you like doughnuts and you have never tried Krispy Kreme before. I’d say go for it, give it a try. You might love it more than I do. ;)
