Evil calories in Mooncake

Gosh! This blog is seriously turning into a food blog.

Well, mainly because I choose not to blog about any current affairs. I have my personal point of view in things but I think I don’t need to share it publicly here. Furthermore, I think that ZekZek Kaching boy has enough publicity around already and I so so so so do not want to contribute anymore to his fame when what he did was…. I don’t know, I can’t find any appropriate word for it.

Let’s talk about something sweet.



The box is so pretty right? Am going to keep it and use it as my money box.

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of sweet things. And mooncake is like… the adam & eve of evil calories! While munching the green tea mooncake (because Bobby said I must eat at least one slice), I read the thin piece of nutrition facts in the box and nearly got choked!

I am only going to show you all the calories in it.

Net weight of a mooncake : +- 180gm
Serving size : +-22.5gm (about 1/8 piece of mooncake)

Kick or not? One small slice already 80+ kcal!

A man needs about 2,000 to 2,200 kcals a day. It’s like, you eat 3 mooncakes a day and you can’t eat anything else already and still gain weight!!
