Mango Pomelo Sago Dessert

This is a must-try for all dessert lovers if you visit Hong Kong – Mango Ice Cream dessert with Pomelo & Sago.  I didn’t know there’s actually ice cream inside.  I had mine at the popular Hui Lau San Healthy Dessert stall located at 西洋菜街#58-60, near to Women’s Street.  It’s HK$29 a bowl.  The generous portion of the pomelo and its slight bitter taste makes the dessert all the more yummy and special.

There used to be an outlet in Singapore Orchard Road near to Palais Renaissance, but it’s closed down even befor I had a chance to visit.  This was the dessert I have heard about so much and got so excited when I finally tried it.  It has become so popular that there are some restaurants here selling too.  And surprisingly after a search on the internet found that the dessert was in fact originated from my own country, created by a Hong Kong-born chef here in 1987, and brought over to Hong Kong.  And yet I got to taste it in Hong Kong, haha.  Since now I know we have it here, I can enjoy it more often.

My New Love – Muesli Cereal

This was my first time having muesli, and I’m hooked. Never heard of muesli cereal other than those bar type. The cold muesli I had at Hotel Panorama Hong Kong during breakfast was simply delicious. There were choice of raisins and walnuts as toppings. I loved it so much I didn’t even mind having it every day. Now back home and I’m craving for it. Want to get my own packet yet not sure how to prepare them. I only know how to eat, haha. Do I prepare it the same way as instant Quaker Oats or cereal – just by adding milk? Or I can swop the milk with yogurt instead?  Realize it’s not as widely available in the supermarkets as Quaker Oatmeal and Cereals.

Happened on this brand at NTUC – Brookfarm Toasted Macadamia Muesli, but there’s no instruction on the packaging on how to prepare. I wonder are there also yogurt pack style, where we can just open and eat for convenience and people lazy like me.  Hope my own version will be as nice as the Hotel one I tried.
