UFO Dessert and Drink

Besides Snowflakes, do you know any other Taiwanese dessert shop?

Recently I went for this dessert shop from outer space: UFO Dessert & Drink in SS2, PJ.

It's the Groupon coupons that brought me there! RM5 for 2 bowls of healthy dessert, worth the price!

I had the Ocha flavour while my mom tried the normal one.

This is mine: with toppings such as Peanut Mochi balls, Yam tubes, Sweet potato tubes, Red Beans

Mochi balls with peanut fillings, yummy!

The best thing was the Mochi balls with yummy peanut inside, and not forgetting the Yakult balls, which was so juicy and it "pops" in your mouth when you bite it.

Of course, dessert can always come with snacks!

Overall Review:
Although the dessert and even the toppings here are like 90% similar to Snowflakes, I feel it's not as fresh as Snowflakes.
If you've tried Snowflakes before you will know that the taste of the desserts are just nice; not too sweet, not too dull, but just nice. But in UFO, it's like when you dig into the ice below the toppings, it's not as tasteful. Overall, it's acceptable for me, but may not be for people with sweet tooth.

Way South

December has always been a month for wedding dinners and celebrations. So yay, I went back to Johore Bahru, my hometown. My cousin sister had her wedding in York Hotel, Singapore. But of course, we stayed in JB for the night!

Although people say the best Malaysia food are in Penang, I'd still vote for JB! Although I did not grow up here, but the nice and delicious food here has always been what I looked forward every time I go back.

1st stop: Nasi Padang Tampoi @ Tampoi

Nasi Padang? Yes, Indonesia food, but the shop was opened by Chinese, and apparently they were opened since like 30 years ago.

The famous Curry Fish Head

Sambal small prawn, looks juicy right?

3 dishes @ reasonable price

My lunch!

2nd stop : Singapore/Johore Laksa @水塘

This trip back to Johore was a bit disappointed as we did not have the chance eat the "Cathay Laksa" that we will always have every time we go back to JB.
So, on the last day before we head back to PJ, my dad brought us to 水塘 Laksa. A Laksa shop that is very experienced as well!

As you can see, the Laksa in Johore is different from what we have here in PJ.
It's called Laksa and Laksa only at JB, but here in PJ, we call it Curry Laksa.
And, it's not curry in JB, it's pure L.A.K.S.A.

My fav!
