Couples & Dates

My apologies if d title led you to think this is a romantic or a lovey- dovey post. Still a food related post-leh. Okay, I did do it on purpose. Just can't stop myself. :P

'Couples' is actually d name of the instant 'cham' drink I'm into nowadays. RM10.99 for a bag of 10 packets, I think and so far in my search, only available at Sogo Departmental Store, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman in Kuala Lumpur.

This just-add-hot-water drink is a mixture of tea & coffee. Aromatic & kaw!

They do come in other combination such as Chocolate & Coffee and Coffee with Malt but I only like this. Actually, I post this not only to introduce it to you but am hoping you have other good recommendations on similar drinks for me. I am a bit tired of d same taste but hooked on d convenience. So, tried any good ones lately?

Red dates. Ever seen these fresh? I took d picture below to illustrate the differing sizes.The dried ones make regular appearances in Chinese medicinal or herbal concoctions while fresh ones are eaten as it is. Sweet & crunchy like apples! The latter is not easily found here in Malaysia but are in abundance at the country I just visited. Where u ask, stay tuned!

Mmm.. maybe I shd throw out another clue of where I've just been in my next post. Yes, I am trying to buy time while I sort out the photographs.

ooh tummy! were you in the middle east? or china? o_O

babe_kl, know where to find those in KL? Just finished my 'stock' but still crave for more!

tuktoyaktuk, good guess! China. Aiya, was planning to confuse all in my next post. Then again, if nobody reads this comment box, my plan may still work. Coming soon, an activity that not many do when holidaying there. *nodding like there's suspense music in d backgroud*.

haha, I've tried those fresh dates before too. I forgotten whether it's my relatives who brought them back during a trip or what. But they are nice. ;)

u need to keep a look out at the pasar or pasar pagi. its seasonal one. i just tasted my first fresh date (those middle eastern ones) today. kinda numbing feeling at first bite but after a while its ok.

I love dates especially u can find a lot fo them sold in shopping mall during puasa month. But i never try the fresh one coz mostly being processed.
