A Glutton’s Curse

My answer to Joe’s tag:

“As I woke up and starred at the mirror, I saw something unfamiliar. It looked like me, sounded like me, smelled like me, tasted like me, but something was not right”

I couldn’t quite comprehend what was wrong with the mirror image of myself. As I scrutinized every inch of my face and body, it was suddenly apparent. My cheeks were noticeably chubbier. And my tummy was protruding. I rubbed my eyes in disbelief and quickly stepped on the weighing scale.

HOLY COW!!!!!! 10 pounds heavier??? That’s impossible. The scale is wrong. I readjusted the scale, and removed my pyjamas. It must be the clothes that weighed 10 pounds, I thought to myself. I stepped on it again. What?? Still no change?!?! This can’t be happening!!

I reached for my phone and dialed my emergency number – rif. He picked up the phone and I went, “@#!$!#@[email protected][email protected]!!!!!!! I’m 10 pounds heavier! What on earth happened?” rif narrated what had happened the day before.


It was Tony Roma’s first ever buffet, with all you can eat beef ribs, chicken tenders, crispy batter fried fish, mash potatoes and salad. On top of that, there was also a FREE FLOW of Carlsberg beer, juice and carbonated drinks. rif said I went gaga and attacked one rib after another…like no tomorrow. The people at the grilling station started to quiver in fear. They were afraid they could not grill enough ribs for me. And the crew started an emergency stock take of their remaining cows in the kitchen.Two hours later, I had 10 layers of rib bones on the plate. 30 pieces of huge ass ribs. rif’s mouth gaped open. He has never seen me eat THIS much before. The Tony Roma manager gathered all his best men. They were prepared to kick me out. rif and Shum thinks I’m banned from TR for life. I ate my last huge piece of rib, and passed out due to extreme gluttony.


“And that my dear, was how you gained 10 pounds in a day!” said rif. “NOOOoooOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!,” I screamed in disbelief.

*Precious Pea is not available to do the tag as she’s going overseas very soon*
I’m tagging Motormouth From Ipoh. Your tag goes like this:

“After too many Slippery Nipples the night before, I woke up with a massive hangover and was extremely late for an important meeting. In my haste, I found myself clad in nothing but a pair of daisy-print boxers in front of a board of CEOs.”

  21. thule a.k.a leo

    15 ribs + a cup of beer is quite an impressive feat for such a girl like you… I don't know if I could down 5 ribs 😛

    Tony Roma.. one of the reason why I didn't go there is because of the ribs. In Singapore, I could easily get pork ribs but they only serve beef in Malaysia… I know there are other dishes too but don't forget what TR is famous for ok???

  22. PureGlutton

    Wow…how did u stack up the 30 tulang? Amazing feat, not only the eating, but the stacking too! Way to go, gal!

  23. Bangsar-bAbE

    PureGlutton – I did it the jenga way! =P

    leo – Hehehe…I'm a piglet! I agree…nothing beats pork ribs. I'll just give you onion loaf la! I sapu all the ribs for you…

    Frat – Look who's talking! Mouth never stop moving up north! Hmmmmppphhh!!! =D

  24. Simon Seow

  25. Bangsar-bAbE

    Only one day la the buffet. July 4th… =(

  26. Sugar Bean

    Haha, the way you wrote it is so funny. Only for one day? Sooo many bones, guess you guys really ate a lot!

  27. Bangsar-bAbE

    Sugar Bean – Yup, it was only for a day. We did!! *BURP!* =D

  28. ck lam

    Like the way the bones are being stacked up…emphasis the deliciousness of the meat.

  29. Bangsar-bAbE
