    Taking a strong stance on doughnuts

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 22/04/2018

    » It was Oscar Wilde who famously observed "the only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it," which is my excuse for munching on a free doughnut proffered by staffers at a bakery in Bangkok last week.
