TORA BIKA Cappucino (extra choco granule) Indonesia

An instant drink product of Jakarta. Smooth, creamy and surprisingly, not overly sweet like most drinks I tried in Jakarta. What attracted me was the separate small sachet of coco powder attached to each individual coffee packet for a fragrant mug of buzz.Doesn't it look good?
Was excited to share around but Nescafe fans gave me sour looks. Claimed it's way too mild. Oh well. Less men more share. =D

A trivia about my trip:-

The major difference this time around compared to my previous trip, I was with 2 of my Shopping Queen pals. Naturally, other than cruising boutiques (imported branded attire is more expensive there than Hong Kong and Singapore), we covered 2 supermarkets and 1 hypermarket. Yes, 'si-lai' (ie homemaker) stuff. Discovered certain brands (groceries and toiletries) were relatively cheaper compared to our Bolehland. Hey, even similar brands carry wider range of products and in better packaging. Among the 3 of us, we 'imported' Pantene, Garnier, Laurier, Johnson & Johnson, Dettol, Salonpas and handy packets of fruit juice. =P
