My KFC Giveaway

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, February 27, 2009 | Published in


Yesterday, I received a gift from a friend. It was a small "thank you" gift for teaching her a few techniques in playing the piano. I didn't expect it at all, but when I saw what the gift was, I was like, OK, this is so not my kind of gift!

I know it is the thought that counts, so I do not blame my friend at all. It's just that the gift happened to be a KFC Voucher for 1 snack plate. And I do not fancy KFC. Or any fast food for that matter. Well, among all the fast foods out there, I really think KFC is one of the worst!

But you know, I am sure there are people out there who would love to receive this voucher. I am sure there are lots of people who love KFC. Although I must really advise them not to eat too much of it as it is very unhealthy.

Since I won't be using this voucher, it would be a waste if I just throw it away, right? So what better way than to pass this to my readers?

Now to make this fun, let's play a guessing game. I have recorded my piano performance of a song which you can listen to here.

Guess This Song.wav -

All you need to do is to guess the name of the song and the original artiste who played or sang this song. That's it!

The first person to answer correctly will get the KFC Voucher! This contest is open to all Malaysians. Non Malaysians can join in too, but obviously if you win, you will need to come to Malaysia to use this voucher as it is only valid in KFC outlets in West Malaysia only. You can guess as many times as you wish, but only your last answer will be accepted.

Happy Guessing and have a nice weekend, everyone!! : )

*HINT #1 : I have blogged about this song before in one of my posts.

**HINT #2 : Search for the right post under "Hit Songs" category/label.

***HINT #3 : The title of the song contains the word "Secret"

    I don't like KFC all that much too. Only go there once in a blue moon to indulge Raimie.

    Good luck to those joining. Enjoy your snack plate. :)

    First! Wohooo!!!!

    p.s I always feel the fried chickens at Malaysia's KFC too dry compared to the fried chicken at other countries. What say you?

    Foong, I have to agree with you on KFC. I never eat them unless it's some full-moon thingy where KFCs are typical giveaways nowadays.

    Which one, do you think, is more unhealthy?
    (i) KFC snack plate
    (ii) roti canai
    (iii) nasi lemak

    KFC snack plate at least has coleslaw.

    February 27, 2009 at 11:35 AM

    nasi lemak also got vege what. 2 pieces of cucumber slices. LOL

    I am not a big fan of KFC and usually discourage my children eating that but occassionally when I am lazy to cook, I go for that.

    I'll pass, because I still have a few RM10 KFC vouchers which I only use when I'm "poor" a.k.a no cash to buy zhap fan. Haha. :P

  14. Rad Sujanto said...

    too bad otherwise I would go for the voucher :P

    I like fried chicken so much. Hmmmm... *heading to KFC* hehe

    thanks for reminding me of getting hungry, foongpc.

  16. JL said...

    This song is really really familiar, don't tell me it's from a Korean drama. Lol! XD

    I probably can't guess it anyway. Sad :(

    February 27, 2009 at 10:13 PM
  17. LifeRamblings said...

    the melody is a beautiful piece and it sounds so familiar. is it 'winter sonata' or 'autumn in my heart'?

  18. eastcoastlife said...

    I like KFC Zinger and mashed potato. But I cannot take part leh!

    February 28, 2009 at 1:27 AM
  19. foongpc said...

    lina, yay! You are first!

    Actually I find the fried chicken not only dry but too small for my liking!

    Other than the chicken, potato and coleslaw, I really can't find anything that is eatable in KFC. I would say it's a failure compared to McDonald's not that I fancy McD!

    February 28, 2009 at 3:27 AM
  20. foongpc said...

    mei teng, yeah better not eat them - so unhealthy and not nice anyway! : )

    February 28, 2009 at 3:29 AM
  21. foongpc said...

    levian, you can try to listen outside working hours - there's still a chance as no one gave any solid answer yet. Maybe it's too tough?

    February 28, 2009 at 3:30 AM
  22. foongpc said...

    xin, yeah very oily. And all those trans fat guaranteed to raise your bad cholesterol in no time! LOL!

    OK, seeing no one giving any solid answer yet, I'll come up with a tip/hint soon. Btw, it's an English song. Not Asian song : )

    February 28, 2009 at 3:33 AM
  23. foongpc said...

    nic, you like KFC? Well, just make sure you don't eat it too often! Once in a while should be OK.

    Could not guess the song? Will post a hint soon : )

    annant, you internet connection so slow? Well, lucky you don't need the voucher or else you'll really be missing out! : )

    February 28, 2009 at 3:37 AM
  26. foongpc said...

    gallivanter, no. Haha! Nothing to do with KFC actually. OK, I will post a clue soon : )

    February 28, 2009 at 3:38 AM
  27. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, I would say all are unhealthy. But the most unhealthy is KFC fried chickens!

    Reason being, KFC chicken is deep fried in oil!

    Roti canai is healthier as it's not deep fried in oil.

    Nasi lemak can be healthy or unhealthy depends on the ingredients. It's unhealthy if use too much santan in the rice, but the eggs, nuts, ikan bilis and cucumber do provide some nutrients although it's too high in carbs and fat to make it a healthy dish!

    KFC fried chickens are health hazards as they :
    1) are deep fried in hydrogenated oil which contains trans-fat that raises your bad cholesterol (LDL) and lowers good cholesterol (HDL). Even if KFC says its oil does not contain trans-fat, anything that is deep fried will still raise your LDL.

    2) are mass produced so the chickens are injected with growth hormone that is detrimental to human's health, besides causing cancer

    In the snack plate, the potatoes and bread are high in glycemic index (GI) - again bad for health!

    The coleslaw although are vegetables may contain pesticides residues and are mixed in cream sauce that spells fat! So on the whole, the KFC snack plate is worse than nasi lemak and definitely very much worse than roti canai.

    February 28, 2009 at 3:58 AM
  28. foongpc said...

    lina, haha! Nasi lemak only have 2 slices of cucumber. What an unbalanced meal! : )

    February 28, 2009 at 4:01 AM
  29. foongpc said...

    molly, it's great that you discourage your children from eating KFC. Well, once in a while is OK as long as you don't eat them every week!

    Can't guess the song? Will give you a hint soon : )

  31. foongpc said...

    rad, sorry for making you hungry! Haha! Luckily I don't really fancy fried chickens, if not will have a tough time trying to stay away from KFC! LOL!

    February 28, 2009 at 4:06 AM
  32. foongpc said...

    pikey, wow you're a fan eh? Well, do try and guess this song - you may just get yourself a free KFC meal! But indulge once in a while is OK, I hope you don't eat KFC everyday! : )

    February 28, 2009 at 4:08 AM
  33. foongpc said...

  34. foongpc said...

    life ramblings, does it sound Korean to you? JL also think it's Korean song. But rest assured, it's not. If it sounds familiar, you would have probably heard it before! Do look out for my upcoming Hint! : )

    eastcoastlife, you can still take part. If you win, you can just cross over to Johor and go to any KFC outlets there to redeem! Not that far away right? : )

  42. foongpc said...

    bengbeng, yes you did! Why can't you take part? Oh, I know why. Because the voucher can only be used in West Malaysia, right? Well, you can still use it next time you come to West Malaysia - the voucher only expires on 31st Oct 2009. Or you can pass the voucher to someone else if you like.

    Btw, this is not a Korean song. It's an English song : )

    Guys and gals, sorry about the YouTube video on my post Song From A Secret Garden. It worked the last time when I posted it, now it's disabled for some reason.

    Some of you may have searched all my posts from my 'hit songs' category and could not find the answer because you could not play this video.

    That's why I had to give out my 3rd hint ie. the word "secret" in the title of the song.

    Anyway, this is a beautiful song and you can watch a different video here : )
