My First Ever Eating Competition- I WON SECOND PRIZE!!!

Sunway Pyramid held their Ultimate Food Challenge over the weekend. There were application forms in Sunway Pyramid before this for those interest to fill in and submit but I actually found out about the Challenge through their Facebook page. They had so many eating contests sponsored by different food outlets in Sunway Pyramid. You may see the full list here:-I actually applied for the Bubba Gump Shrimp Eating Challenge and roped in Louisa to apply with me. We sent our e-mails and were speculating excitedly about the contest. However, we didn't hear from them until a few days before the competition started. Louisa was out of town by then and I was left alone to participate. They offered me a choice between the Octopus Prime Challenge and the Popeyes Meal Challenge. Although I LOVE octopus, I opted for Popeye's since 23rd was my birthday and I already had plans.

I woke up on that morning feeling hungry. I distracted myself by reading some eating competition tips where they said not to starve myself and take something light if hungry. I had some leftover mac 'n cheese from the previous night's potluck. I ended up having to rush all the way to Pyramid because I forgot I had to be there an hour early to register!!!

I had a cheer team of my own. Joshua, Vemal, Jessica and Ben turned up to give me moral support. Thank you all!!! I was super duper nervous before it started. Jessica tried to loosen me up by chirping," You're not here for competition, Joyce. You're here for LUNCH." Haha!!! I was practically shaking and shivering when my name was called to go on stage.
"OMG I'm nervous!!" I was saying

This was what I had to eat:A Popeye's Meal consisting of one coleslaw, one mash potato,
3 chicken tenders and one biscuit.

I gave my all and gulped down the food. Utilising my strategy of swallow swallow swallow. It paid off!!! I got second place!! The winner was a girl (skinny little thing) while the second runner up was a guy. Hah!!! Just goes to show that guys may be able to eat a lot, but not necessarily with SPEED. I had several cameras pointed at me, capturing one of my most un-glamorous moments. Goshhh...I ate like a glutton in the middle of a crowded mall and it's all captured on God knows how many cameras!!! Ahhh..well, pictures from Jessica's camera:-

See what I meant about glutton???

But anyway, I came in second. At least I got something for it. Haha!!!

Want to see me in full action?? Watch this video recorded by Ben.
Only don't be scared of me forever after watching this. Haha!!!!

Prize giving!!!

My prize

I am quite pleased that I managed to bag second place in my first ever eating competition. I wonder if this is a sign. . . . Haha!!! No no no, this so cannot be a career for me. Lazy person like me who doesn't exercise, all input and no output. I'll become obese. Let's just keep it at just for fun. That's all for now.
