My Precious...

Since I came back from the UK, plenty of my friends were merciless in pointing out how fat I had become.

Fast forward 4 months later to now, I had lost much of my weight and gained back my toned body thanks to my religious visits to Fitness First which greets me with this sign every time I go there.But I believe in rewarding good behaviour.

Some people who long to keep slim and practice refrain from certain indulgences still do indulge in ice-cream once in a while.

So I decided to do the same.

Yesterday, I walked into Haagen Dazs in Pulau Tikus.
I walked straight to the counter where I took my time to decide what kind of ice-cream I was going to have.

A little less than 5 minutes later, I decided that I was going to have the Green Tea.

The man behind the counter very politely greeted me and offered his help
"Can I help you sir?"

I gave him a quick look and said
"I have decided to go for the green tea. Could I please have the Green Tea for take-away?".

He smiled and said
"Yes sir... what size would you want? Pint size?"

I looked at him with a bit of disbelief and said
"No... much bigger..."

While glancing at the Haagen Dazs logo high up on the wall that was smiling down at me.He pointed at an empty container which represented the quad size and said
"You want Quad Size?"

I said
"No... much bigger".

Then he took out the largest container they had and said
"This is the largest we have Sir..."

Unsatisfied, I pointed at the ice-cream in the fridge and said
"That is NOT the largest size you have.

You see all those buckets that you scoop my ice-cream out of? Why don't you just sell me the whole bucket..."

Showing a little bit of confusion he said
"The whole CAN?!?! ... Sorry Sir, I don't think we can sell you that..."

I insisted and he checked with his manager who agreed.

They priced the whole bucket of Green Tea ice-cream at RM505... a small price to pay for... My Precious.

I walked out of Haagen Daz a happy man.... with My Precious...Loaded it into my car and went home.

At home, I spent the next one hour admiring My Precious.


The label on its top reminded me that I was about to eat 9.46 litres
(probably enough ice-cream to give diabetes to the entire population of a small country).

But I ripped off the top cover in denial and stared at the beautiful sea of green tea...

Ahh there it was... enough ice-cream to last me the weekend.

I quickly changed into my comfortable very very old t-shirt and shorts that I wear to sleep and dragged My Precious with me into the living room.

Armed with a tablespoon, I turned on the TV and got started.To Julia (My New PA): Please hold all my calls.

Boss Stewie is NOT to be disturbed this weekend.

Obesity... here I come....

DareDevil8 said...

your UBS buy is subsidising your Precious
your analogy of 'My Precious' is at fault.you are suppose to slip it out of the fridge intermittently to lust,greed,envy,wrath,sloth and pride over it,not GLUTTONY!
i like that wicked smile when u are embracing MP.ever thought of auditioning for the role of Golum in 'The Hobbit'?
Why green tea?Hoping the nutritional value will nullify the adverse effect of the whole barrel?

Jackson said...

What, no Lecka Lecka?


And of all the flavors... Green Tea, honestly 8-)

Boss Stewie said...

ricadoe: ahh don't worry.. haagen dazs is not as good as they say it is :P

Penang TIMES: A man in 20s bought a whole tub of Green tea flavoured Haagen Dazz as a reward after spending enormous amount of time training at a gym. This man has been later identified as blogger, Timothytiah. He also is the man behind the blog timothytiah.blogspot.com. There have quite a number of incredible feat done by this young man. One of them being his price-slashing skills which can even rival the aunties in market,another one being posting his friend's butt crack on his blog and etc.What other incredible feat can this man perform? We'll just have to wait and see. Stay to this channel.

Boss Stewie said...

eric: hahha yeah i think our body has something like 8 litres of blood. so yeah.. that ice cream would be more than enough to replace my body's blood if i wanted to :P

slinky: hahahaha but u sin in other ways right? like chocolate

june: ahahahahaa well.. actually i think it might last longer than that.. for my own good.. it had better last longer than that

al: hahaha it's not so much the eating.. it's the fun in the carrying of my precious home... you should've seen the look on the haagen dazs guy when i said i wanted to the whole tub

william: oh... hahaha that was my first taste of it william.. notice the sides were touched.. i go around the sides first before the middle

earl: ahahahaha can earl.. be my guest.. we share share

maniacz: i thought u were going to say something like

Penang Times: Idiotic 22-year old man kills himself with 9 litres of ice-cream over one weekend. Doctors are calling it a rare case of "Instant-Diabetes".

William Leong said...

as much as im hoping the same thing could happen to me, i still think its crazy. but coming from stewie's mind of uncharted territory, it could possibly be real. arrrghhh... i dont know.. the dilemma~!!!

Sharon said...

OMG! i was THIS close to calling you crazy :S but then again a lot of people would probably already think that!

do update us if you really finish the whole tub over the weekend LOL

the manager must have been very happy to make a good profit from you LOL

Eve said...

Boss Stewie said...

william: why would u want the same thing to happen to you? why would u like to be fat like me?

sharon: hahahaha ok.. it's sunday and.. i haven't quite finished it yet

eve: :P

Gwen said...

ROFLMAO @ anonymous comment ... read, don't read ... doesn't matter. You're one tiny squishie ant among a nation of Stewie lovers. F-Off.

OMG so expensive! Not logical for me to get a tub that big thanks to freezer constraints. Green tea is the bestest! When I first saw it, I was like "omg he's not really going to buy the big. .... oh wow he did." Terror. New respect. Now show us the aftermath of the weekend~!

Boss Stewie said...

I'M NOT FAT... I'M JUST BIG-BONED... AAHAHA

Gwen said...

Actually it's stupid of the guy working there to make you go through all that trouble just to obtain the tub of ice-cream. What if you wanted it for a party? Who knows right? Other people would have just gotten pissed off and walked away.

Boss Stewie said...

gwen: ahahah well in his defence.. it said "Trainee" on his nametag :P

MaN|acZ said...

Boss, why din ask trainee to check ur blog? :P

pretty smooth izzit?
lol

cely said...

aiyo...

u could have use those money to come down to KL and CHIA me eat crab la...

si rich kid!

SBB said...

Movenpick is better than Haagan Daaz, but you can't buy the huge tubs here unless you know the Swiss Ambassador (they have huge ass tubs imported here regularly for their own use).

For the record, you are supposed to eat HD when it is partially melted, not straight out of the fridge. Some impatient people microwave to soften it, but I prefer to wait.

Gwen said...

try pouring some milk over the top, about 2 inches of milk, and then scoop up the ice cream, it freezes the milk into little crystals and is a blast to eat

Boss Stewie said...

maniacz: ARGH!! PLS TELL ME WE ARE NOT TALKING BOUT MY SHIT HERE...

cely: ehh... that would've cost even more cely

shiny: it doesn't take long in our climate for it to soften up does it?

gwen: 2 inches of milk on that 9 litre tub of ice cream... that's gonna be a whole lot of milk gwen

cely said...

yor.. stop these la.. i hate u all...

cheayee said...

Green tea?? wow....

Macademia Caramel is great too.

I didn't know they could buy it off by tubs.... isn't it great that one could go home from work, stressed out and just take out that dessert waiting in the freezer?

*heaven*
