Tastiness vs Healthiness?

I felt like ranting about something, but I totally forgot what it was…so it can’t have been that inspiring..

I am trying to download Phlak[/url] as I am in the process of updating my security toolkit..the download speed is atrocious, I think there is something wrong with the line. Even surfing is slow, my crappy StimX is faster..and this stupid laptop just gave me a BSOD *sigh* I really need to reformat it..

Not sure if I should complain about yesterday or not…quite clearly inhumane working condition, I had a splitting headache by the end of the day and felt like I had a bad case of sunstroke or heat exhaustion..

Haven’t been to pizza hut[/url] for quite some time, in fact I don’t think I’ve ever been in Malaysia before, I’ve ordered delivery a couple of times and I went a few times in Brunei as there wasn’t much else to eat there..

Made a trip there last night and had the Tempura set, it was pretty good, I have to say though, Pepsi Ice is a truly scary artificial blue colour. Pepsi fire tastes just like normal pepsi, it’s just a slightly reddish colour.

After devouring some pizza, tempura prawns and parmesan breadstrip thingies, I had the revalation that how good food tastes is inversely proportional to how healthy it is (in general terms)..

Like if you cook meat with all the fat removed, it just doesn’t taste so good (that’s where the flavour comes from).

Chinese for example love munching on fatty stuff, siu yuk for example, pork trotters..

Personally I can’t stand some of that stuff, the wibbly wobbly texture fat makes me want to vomit, if some misadvertently enters my mouth I might actually retch.

I can take the crispy stuff, like in UK with the pork scratchings, I love that stuff, which is basically just crunchy fat, and crispy bacon rind is teh pwn too…but jelly like fat…I can’t handle it.

Anyway back to the point, stuff with less fat is more healthy and thus less tasty, fried stuff tastes best, more fat…deep fried stuff even better, even more fat…

In Scotland you can get ridiculous stuff like deep fried Mars Bars, why? Because deep fry anything and it TASTES GOOD.

Deep fried ice-cream is actually really nice.

Lettuce for example, super healthy, super tasteless unless you add some nice gooey, oily, unhealthy salad dressing..

I think it’s all some kind of evil conspiracy, you can’t have good tasting and healthy food, well you can…roasted stuff for example, but still you need to put oil in the pan to roast potatoes for example…boiled food, not tasty unless you pour some juicy gravy made from the meat fat all over it..

Anyway fried is good, fat is good (as long as it’s not wobbly) and tasty food is good.

Delicious or Healthy? What’s your choice?

Personally, I say Bollocks to the healthy stuff.

    After that no definately wasn’t me.

    Nah kinda be hard to spar with chiu from like 8000 miles away, even my reach aint that long 😉
