A drink that tastes, smells, and looks like coffee, but isn’t coffee!

Posted in Reviews on / Leave a comment

I discovered an interesting drink some time ago… It tastes like coffee, smells like coffee, and it even looks like coffee! The weird thing is, it’s NOT coffee at all. I can’t believe it’s not coffee! In fact, it’s a type of tea – barley tea, to be specific. It’s known as “Mugicha” in Japanese, or, “Da Mai Cha (大麦茶)” …


Mocha with what?

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

I visited Johor Bahru more than a week ago. There’s this new mall next to City Square Mall. It’s called Komtar. In there is a very atas (upmarket) supermarket. Thought it’d be interesting to check it out. Here’s one product that stood out among the shelves. I picked it up, looked at it, got disgusted and put it back on the …

Someone’s Milking Cows in Singapore and Selling Their Milk!!!

Posted in Reviews on / 5 Comments

If you’ve been visiting supermarkets in Singapore lately (especially NTUC), you might have noticed a rather odd brand and packaging that doesn’t blend in at all with all the other milk brands. What am I talking about? This: Holy cow! It’s Vishnu Fresh Milk! It says on the bottle that it’s pure cow’s milk, fresh from Singapore’s own dairy farm. …

Fully Loaded Pizza! MMMMmmm... Great choice!

A Delightful Brunch

Posted in Blog, Love Stories on / Leave a comment

Today, The Girlfriend and I decided to enjoy a slow and leisurely, yet very indulgent brunch (breakfast plus lunch). We decided that at least once a month, we should pamper ourselves and indulge a little in good quality breads, cheese, fresh produce, and anything else that would contribute to a hearty and delicious meal. So, what’s on the menu? Well… …


Interesting Toothpaste Facts and Stuff You Probably Didn’t Know About Everyday Items!

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

The other day, while squeezing my tube of toothpaste to brush my teeth, I noticed something very interesting: Can you see what’s interesting about this photo? There’s a Halal certification logo on my tube of toothpaste! (The Halal logo is to certify that the product is ok for Muslims to use/consume) How odd! The first thought that went through my …


Koala Tea and Exploding Koalas!

Posted in Blog on / 1 Comment

Now, here’s something you don’t usually see at Supermarkets! It’s… Koala Tea! The first thing that came to my mind was – is it made from koalas? I always check out the coffee and tea section of a supermarket and this is the first time I’ve seen such a product! How interesting! Anyway, the koala on the picture looks so …


Exciting Deodorant!

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

I was taking a walk in the supermarket earlier this morning. I noticed they had a silly sign to point out deodorants in the aisle. What makes it look really silly was just how excited and happy the girl was as she sprayed deo on her armpits (with her mouth wide open). I turned to The Girlfriend and asked, “Do …


Panda Puffs (Does NOT Contain Pandas!)

Posted in Blog on / 1 Comment

Heehee… I’m so amused. I was walking around the supermarket today when I saw this! It’s PANDA PUFFS!!! HOLY PANDA!!! (I’d normally shout “holy cow!”, but it is apt to invoke pandas for this post) I’m really confused by the packaging. The words on the box says it’s “peanut butter panda puffs.” You mean it doesn’t taste of panda? Awww… I’ve …


Today’s Packed Dinner

Posted in Blog on / Leave a comment

Today was a packed dinner rather than a packed lunch as I was at home during lunch time. I simply prepared more of what I was eating for lunch. That means I ate the exact same thing for lunch and dinner. Well, I’m fine with that. It saves me a lot of trouble. Anyway, so here’s what I have for …


Japanese Supermarket: Meidi-ya!

Posted in Exploration on / Leave a comment

One of my favourite past times is to visit the Japanese Supermarket, Meidi-ya, at Liang Court (near Clarke Quay). I love this Japanese Supermarket! There’s always something amazing waiting to be discovered! But if that’s not all, there’s a wide variety of awesome high quality products imported directly from Japan! This place is THE supermarket for the Japanese. Come down …
