Once Upon A Milkshake

Tuck in a little corner of Tanjong Pagar, Singapore lived Once Upon a Milkshake. My friends introduced me to this shop during my trip last year and said I HAD to try it. I wasn't sure why at first, but went along anyway.

The shop itself has a totally so-cuddly-cute-can-die-dot-com design concept. Clean, minimalistic, with its mostly white furnitures punctuated with some purple-coloured walls, and it really was a warm, sweet, cozy hang-out joint. I know it was cozy because an angry, heavy thunderstorm took us all by surprise and we were stuck there for nearly an hour. I can't get over how cute the ambience was in this place - it's like it popped out of an Enid Blyton book cute, not the annoying Hello Kitty cute. Just to get things straight.

Ice Cold Taps

Brussels' Ice Cold Taps

If I were the king of the world, I would mandate all draught taps AND glasses be frozen. Simply because everything tastes heavenly that way.

I know a place in Singapore that does this - Ice Cold Beer (specially the one along Emerald HIll). My second home while I was there. Every other day, I would park my butt at the bar and order myself an ice cold Hoegaarden just to wind down, washed down with their delicious chicken wings or hotdog. Do you have any idea how good ice cold beer in an ice cold mug feels after a long, long day at work in Singapore? Words can't describe. And oh how much I miss it!

Back in Malaysia, we do have some places that HAS frozen taps. The taps illustrated above are from Brussels. It really makes a difference to my drinking experience. But I haven't had the chance of coming across bars that serves ice cold beer in ice cold mugs. It's usually one or the other and the experience is just NOT COMPLETE.

Please god! Bring Ice Cold Beer to Malaysia! Please please please!
