Hui Lau Shan is not your simple, average blended mango juice. According to South East Asia General Manager, Pan Vui Shang, Hui Lau Shan is a mango dessert that is nothing complicated yet not easy to prepare. With over 50 and more years being in the dessert market, each Hui Lau Shan outlet around the world is designed so that patrons can take a peek into their fruit bar and watch the people behind the scenes creating the dessert that is loved through generations.
Hui Lau Shan Healthy dessert chain recently entered into East Malaysia at Viva City Shopping Mall Kuching, and while it is the first here, it is their 20th store around Malaysia. Malaysians have been raving for their dessert since opening of stores at West Malaysia, and Kuchingnites can now enjoy it as much as they like with just a drive to Viva City Shopping Mall.
My verdict : We were served with mango pop, mango sago, mango pudding, both mango and durian mochi and both mango and durian pancakes. FYI Mango Sago is Hui Lau Shan first dessert that made the whole healthy dessert store chain change back in the 90s. It was the first leap from guillingao and other traditional chinese herbal desserts, to something new, something that people had not seen before. The mango sago was well received then, and people loved the dessert.
Among the desserts I tried, I personally prefer Mango Sago for the balance of taste between sweet and sour. Apart from that, I also prefer the durian pancake. I loved it so much that I went back the next day to grab a box myself.
Hui Lau Shan upholds their standard from day 1, and their mangoes and durians are curated carefully to better serve their patrons. The tangy mangoes are from Thailand and Phillipines while, their durians are from our homeland - Malaysia. Best is, they only take the best of the best Durian which is the D24. Therefore, their durian pancake is so flavourful that you actually feel like you are eating the real thing. The smell is strong definitely, and it gives you the same feeling of eating the durian especially after your burp.
The next best thing to try is their curry fishball - the snack is a famous Hong Kong street snack. Dip with curry, the fish ball although it is like any familiar food we have in Malaysia but the taste of the curry leave off a distinct taste on the taste buds simultaneously introducing us to an unfamiliar culture that is Hong Kong.

Poppin Cookin by Kracie ice cream set - Saw the reviews on this on Youtube with Xavier and have always been curious to try. From the making to the tasting. When we went to Singapore last week, I saw this on the shelf at 7eleven and just had to get it. Bought it for 5$, but friend said I could get it for RM 20 plus at malls in Kuching, which is still cheaper after converting the exchange rate.
The how-to written in Japanese at the back of the box. Had to rely on the pictures otherwise don't know how to do lor. wtf Lucky the pictures easy to understand.
After unboxing it. The contents are inside this plastic packaging, on top looks to be plates and cone covers that you can cut off.
The contents - pink powder pack (strawberry flavour), white powder pack in blue words (some white powder I assume the element to make the cream cold like ice cream), a pack of tiny sprinkles, piping bag, 1 sundae cup, wafers, 2 cones, a spoon, plastic compartment bowl
Cut the water bowl out of the plastic compartment. Put water inside and pour it onto each side of the compartment.
Powder into compartment next
Stir Stir Stir
Good activity for developing children's motor skills
Insert powder turned cream into piping bag, tie one end and cut off the other
Verdict : Disgustingly sweet flavour from the cream. Tasted minty at the same time. Altogether doesn't taste nice,even Xavier agree "MUMMY IT'S SO DISGUSTING" but he still eats it. Fortunately we didn't suffer any upset tummy afterwards means it's safe to eat, right? Nevertheless a fun activity to do; Xavier enjoys making this with me! I would buy it in the future, but only to play with it, not eat it. It's actually quite exciting to see the end of the two packets of powders. I saw there are other types of poppin cookin food such as burgers, sushi etc. Just google Poppin Cookin by Kracie!

Hello, Was the school holiday last week and Evans thought it was a good idea to bring Xavier to Legoland Malaysia located at Nusajaya, Johor Bahru. It's also the only Legoland in Asia established in year 2012.
We bought our admission tickets online here but visitors can also buy it on the spot! I'm not sure if the prices vary but daily admission is limited, so my best advice is to purchase online. There's also a Legoland themed Hotel beside the theme park for convenience of visitors cause the park is actually quite far from everywhere. We stayed at Jalan Harimau and it took us approximately 20 minutes drive while those staying at the Legoland Hotel can just walk to the park as it is side by side.
We arrived as early as 9.30am and there were not much visitors yet, however they began to pour at 10am . It could also be cause we came too early. What I enjoy is that the queue for each rides/attractions is not time consuming and long as oppose to parents' nightmares of long length and time queue when going to public play places especially under the hot scorching sun.
There are more than 70 different rides, attractions and shows, & apart from one that we skipped due to technical difficulties, we basically went to all attractions and rides. Explore map here. Fortunately the weather wasn't scorching hot, we stayed for 3 hours completing all the list of things to do.
Driving lessons with kopi O driving license bought at the counter.
Those interested in going for this ride MUST prepare an extra clothing cause you WILL get wait at the end of the ride. Xavier got wet for sure, and he was pissed at the water for it HAHA and yes, I did bring extra clothes for us.
It was definitely a fun experience, especially if you have kids, doesn't matter if they love lego or don't appreciate it at all, kids will love this place for sure! Filled with thrilling heart-pumping rides, and educational activities, Legoland is the place for family bonding.
To be honest, I am not a theme park person as I get nausea easily from rides and after trying out one of the scary rides, I am sure-confirm that I am not a theme park person. Evans and Xavier persuaded me to get on the Mini Dragon Ride (the large one was scary looking but they both enjoyed it nevertheless), and I teared up after the ride out of fear. I must have had bad experiences with theme parks in my past life that I get so shaken up just by one ride.
Apart from me unable to enjoy, I actually had fun looking at Evans and Xavier going on the rides. If I'd be given a choice to come back, I'd say sure.... many many many years later. Or after I get more kids. Then Xavier can bring them go play the rides. Hopefully they don't inherit my fear of theme parks genes, that is.
Shopping at Legoland before heading back. It's like a paradise for kids who loves Lego cause they have different editions, characters etc They even have Duplo for toddlers!
