i was at the mall last weekend and was just walking around at the food court looking for dinner when i spotted the "panda chinese restaurant" in one of the stalls. i remembered that i read somewhere that they have bubble tea, so i promptly made a bee-line towards it. hehe...
some of my close friends will know that i’m a lover of bubble pearl teas! so i just had to try the variety here, to see if they’re anywhere near as good as those we get in m’sia. well, this panda chinese restaurant only has one flavour, that is the original flavour (and it’s not even white like the original flavour in m’sia!), but taste wise, they’re pretty close! yums!! one thing though, the “pearls” (for those who don’t know, it’s those black little jelly-like balls in the drink) are a bit too hard… i guess they don’t make the pearls fresh, but import it in like so many things here.
as for the chicken noodles, the taste is a bit bland. could do with some cut chili in soy sauce, but when i turned to look at the counter to see if they have any, it’s swarmed with people! i’d say it’s the busiest stall in the food court that day. it seems to be quite popular with non-chinese wanting a taste of “chinese food”. but for us chinese, it’s nothing great, really.
while i was at the mall, i did a bit of shopping, some of the stuff as shown in my previous post. on my way to dinner with my trolley full of stuff, it’s really a relief to discovery this:
will this work in m’sia? or would all our purchases be missing from our trolleys when we come back to claim them, coz they were stolen by the very person who’s supposed to be watching them (read: the guard)? one thing good about sandland is that petty crime rate is very low. this is because tolerance for crime is low here, so most of the people here would not wanna risk loosing their jobs or worse, being deported back to their country, just for a few rolls of toilet paper or some woman’s clothes that may not even fit their wives/girlfriends!
