    Churros? Haven't had the pleasure yet. Yauchakwai is one of my favourite snacks. In Subang Jaya, the best yck is at Asia Cafe, SS15. They sell out fast. Crispy till the last bite!

    Have yet to buy Aik Cheong coffee powder. Will update

    I enjoy this churros in Vic Park, Perth.

    Can get the Aik Cheong black coffee at Tesco https://eshop.tesco.com.my/groceries...cts/7000643335.
    This is the economy pack. There is another one which is more expensive, premium packing where each sachet is individually packed. Tastes the same as the economy packing.

    But I must say it's selling pretty expensive in Tesco. I get the same pack in Seremban for RM18.90 only.

    Thank you for your suggestion. Much appreciate. I'm looking for Aik Cheong's coffee powder in a large tin...not in sachets...just like what you find in the local coffee shops. Seen those around?

    Just walk into Aeon Big or similar hyper market, go to the place where they sell the coffee beans by the scoop. They have many many selection. Look for the Kopi Asli or Local brew. it's usually very gummy unlike the White Coffee or other beans as the beans are fried in Margarine and sugar. Ask for the minimum they can grind for you. Have it COURSE ground.

    If you really can't get it, let me know. A friend of mine supplies the local kopitiam. I think if you are local, it can be couried to you.

    I like Yau Cha Kwai too but they can't be readily available at home anytime. So, I decided to find other alternative which is more handy.

    These white and black things are my favorite alternatives ...
    - White one is like cheese to me, perfect for wine...
    - Black one is for beer, etc.

    Don't worry about cholesterol. In fact, they are better stuff than deep fried things like yck....


    Chinese tea is good, lager beer is better, 香檳 is the best..

    While we are on Coffee here, I just found a bag of Vietnam coffee. It was given to me sometime ago. (I don't think it's the civet cat poop)

    Can I refry it as it's been sometime in the cupboard?

    How do you propose to fry it? I would throw it away if I were you.

    No worries, I eat yau cha kwai only two to three times a year with kopi-O. When eating Bak Kut Teh I do not order it at all.

    This is just my opinion...

    If you don't have cholesterol problem from young till 40s, it is unlikely cholesterol is a concern when you aged (while maintaining the same diet and life style). I have never worried of cholesterol at all considering the amount of cholesterol-rich food I consume. It actually means your body can handle them. I think reducing carbohydrate intake is important once you get older, it helps to reduce body weight and the blardy tummy.

    A renowned urologist told me assuming a person is perfectly healthy without illnesses, he/she wil eventually die of complications caused by carbohydrate/sugar overdose because the body's ability to handle sugar is inversely proportionate with age..

    I trust what he said..

    So sad. The place is still vacant. Must be a sign of lean times.
