Donut Queen…


Donut Queen

“Anything that feels good couldn’t possibly be bad.” ~Angelina Jolie~

Okay…it was claimed that donuts belonged to the top 10 food that is not good for our health. What the heck. I make sure to balance my diet with the healthy ones, remember I’m a broccoli/ blueberry girl (among other fruits & vegees)!

The truth of the matter is. From the list of my favorite  “sweet treats” which is also known as desert. Donuts if not on top my list, had always been part of it.

I remember during highschool. My then boyfriend used to hang out as often as we could on this Donuts store a few blocks away from our school. We actually had our first date there. Mushy. Whenever I was with him, I choose the long versions conscious enough to eat them with poise, I’m worried all the time, that If I ordered the round ones, I may not be able to eat them primly and properly. Lol!

Mind you, when he’s not around and I am with my girl friends. I devoured on the round ones! Not minding as to whether how unprim I am going to consume them. There’s a large glass of Coke anyway. Donut + Coke = Lethal combination.

Going back, I am just an ordinary girl craving for “sweet treats” and Donuts seems to be so attractive to me, lures me upon seeing its different flavors that comes in several colors and shapes and with their successful advertisements achieving a lot in convincing me that its okay to binge from time to time to “sweets”.  (–,) Or literally, forgetting about “Healthy diet” and giving in to this decadent temptation.

Let me enumerate them:

Krispy Kreme

NY cheescake..

Mister Donut

Twist and Bavarian..

Dunkin Donuts

I must say that I love their color combination of fuchsia and orange, they’re such a happy color for me. Originally, as a young teenager, I am already happy with the Bavarian flavored donuts and munchkins. Recently, DD came up with new flavors. Of course, I have chosen this:

What’s nice with this new Donut store in town, is that they offer variety – they have of course coffee to match the donuts, they have sandwiches and they have frozen yogurt. =)

Cafe Macaron (Raffles Hotel)

Raffles came up with their own Doussant (doh-sant), just like what MD did. Though Raffles prepares a limited stock daily, in order for them to keep them fresh everyday.

Pistacchio & Cinnamon variants..

Cello’s Donuts (Katipunan)

cellos
Proudly Pinoy-made..

Scarsdale Artisanal Doughnuts (Mandaluyong)

smores
My S’mores from the famous Scarsdale Artisanal Donuts..

I am not trying to rewrite the rules of healthy living. Though indulging on these won’t hurt a lot, after those palatial bites – remain perpetuating parity in what is good to our health and what’s not.

Happy eating! ❤

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
