other stuffs such as tuna or salmon spread on bread (Again, anyway, i can eat the can of tuna or salmon spread without bread ^^ even better ^^)

Aiyer Wanmei. I haven't even had my breakfast and thanks for making me very hungry now! ;)

Ok. I like my bread white, with lotsa butter and chicken floss. Or bak kua (dried meat). Curry chicken, tuna, salmon, eggs, cheese and whatever would be nice too.

When I was a little girl, used to like tomato ketchup with everything. On rice, bread, noodles, crackers etc..

and yes, I eat milo too. :p

My hubby eat his roti with vegemite. Typical essential food for the Aussie. I think vegemite smell like lipas. My roti style, 2 slices of roti, one with butter and the other with butter and jam (whatever flavour) but I do not put it together. I take a bite alternately. Take a bite on the butter slice. Chew... and take another bite on the jam slice, chew... Until the full cycle finishes. My friend think I'm weird. But my reason for doing so - I do not want to mix the flavour.

Nothing beats the old school style...steam white bread (white kopitiam bread) with margarine and kaya....and down it with hot soya drink.

That I have to see. I will bring along a 2-kg tin of Milo when I get the chance to see you. I only need two teaspoonful for my steaming cup of drink. The rest of the tin is yours - at one sitting.

Jose, if you are giving away Milo, please get some from Australia. I understand the Aussie Milo is superb. Conversely, Mon should try the Milo in Indonesia. I don't know what it is like now but when I was there in the 80's, the Indonesian Milo was something that all Milo lovers should experience - put 2 spoons of it to a cup of hot water and you may stir till the cows come home but you will find some of the Milo did not dissolve but remained floating on the top. Made me wonder if one of the ingredient was sawdust!

Jose Mourinho
13-03-2006, 06:21 PM
Kwchang. I will take your good suggestion. Can somebody tell me whether I have been imagining things or not. When I was in UK many suns and moons ago, I could not hardly find any Milo at all. They drank Ovaltine. Is Milo very much an Asian drink or is it popular throughout the world? This would be interesting for all to know (and especially Mon so that she can determine which are the countries she cannot emigrate to).

About 10 years ago, my Texan friend came over for a visit, was bowled over by our Milo, and bought several huge tins to be shipped back. Seems it wasn't heard of in the States. Now of course it's on their shelves. I suppose Nestle hadn't penetrated their market then?

Powdered chocolate-milk is not prefered in US, many just prefer it in liquid form, so you dont have to spend time mixing, so its only sold in liquid form...there are many brands, and nestle is one of them too

I have tried Milo from different countries, Thailand, indonesia, India, (havent tried the aussie's), but to me Msian's is the best. In US at the Oriental Store one could easily find most of Asian food, even the chili sauce sold there are much more hotter (spicier) than msian chili sauce, (maggie, kimball, kg. koh, etc).

Wonder why we dont import spicy sauce from our neighbor, but I could get in States. Recently bought some, so the bottle pretty much traveled across the world to reach me in Msia!...

Of course Aussie Milo taste better than Malaysia. They invented it back in the 1933.

You should go to this and get to know more about our chocolatety favourite all time drink : http://www.nestle.com.au/schoolprojects/milo.asp

A can of 450g of Milo cost about AU$4.00++ and 750g about AU$7.00++ depending whether they have special offered on them.

Remember the phrase " Minum milo, anda jadi, sihat dan kuat".

Jose Mourinho
14-03-2006, 07:56 AM
That is very reasonably priced Milo! But of course we have people who would convert Aussie Dollar to Malaysian Ringgit and maintain that it is cheaper in Malaysia. Or we have people who would advocate we should work in Australia and then bring back the Aussie Dollar and buy Milo in the grocery shop next to Muthu in USJ. Or better still. Work in Australia and then buy the Milo in Chiangmai.

My late grandma use to have her roti with a thin spread of susu pekat and top it with Milo. Dont say it's unhealthy, she lives till 89 years old. But my mum, she has her toast deep into the creamy setengah masak yellow egg.

I heard Malaysia is the largest consumer of Milo, not sure whether it's true.
There's a Wiki page on Milo here:

Read about the Milo dinosaur and Milo Godzilla! I wonder my usual mamak heard of it.

I think roti is very versatile food to eat. Here there are hundred and one types of normal bread - the gardenia type and also the loaf type. And one bread made of spelt wheat - especially good for those wheat intolerance. You can just put anything on top of it and it become a quick meal.

I always try to make healthy version of sandwich for my son lunch box. But he always take out all the sayur bit and eat whatever cold meat I put on it without the roti. So most of the time I end up just using nutella on his bread.

milo, during my primary school time, a sport's day , three man with a small lorry or van (milo logo) came distribute milo in cup, that's the best icy cool milo i ever had.

while i stay with grand ma during school holiday, she always take susu pekat with gula on a thinly layer of roti and a milo pekat without milk but 4 tbsp of milo - hot (she always boil hot water and pour to the milo directly and it dissolve with few stir).

my maid will serve me milo with ovaltine, blender with magic bullet (superb blender) to make me a milkshake with a sprinkle of kayu manis powder. two half boil egg (small about 23 each for kids - one each ) and microwave a thin layer of cheese on the bread (sprinkle with some water) with some tuna - you see tuna in milky cheese.

my husband have teh tarik kou kou - teh boh with hot water and susu pekat, tarik like an expert until a lot of bubble float on top of the teh boh, toast roti with kaya and butter or french toast - a layer of egg (mix white and yolk) and another layer with butter

my mil a layer of thick bacon on roti and no veggie

I don't use hot water on my milo... a glass of steam fresh milk+2tbs milo+pinch of coco powder =milkycomilo :D no sugar needed
Sometimes, I add in a bit of bittersweet chocolate on my milo

It sounds and I am sure it tastes delicious. But how long does it take you to make such an exquisite cup of Milo? I am lazy. I just buy the 3-in-1. I know. It is sacrilege to drink Milo like that but I did tell you all that I am a very lazy has-been.

my style

Old style when I was a kid:
Plain white bread with lots of mom's homemade Kaya and butter mixed, spread on both side.

Uni days @ Aus:
Butter Bun or croissants sliced in between, mix of butter and strawberry jam in between. Throw in the microwave oven for a few secs...
or
Plain bread + cheese spread + ham + egg + 2 slices of cheese, Throw in the microwave oven for a few secs... then add a bit of chili sauce or bbq sauce... mmm... the melted cheese.. yummy~!!

Currently on diet:
wholemeal breads (which I vow I'll never touch those when I was a kid) with a generous extra thick layer of peanut butter (about 5mm thick :D ), with a tiny little bit of strawberry jam for extra flavour.
