Got these gorgeous alcoholic whipped creams so used it on nearly every dessert I could get hold of.
The whipped cream makes the desserts so much more delicious because the bitterness of the alcohol goes really well with the sweetness.

The design of the cup noodle is the same as the 45th anniversary series where they had controversial sharks fin and turtle.
I found pieces of black fungus, bell peppers, spring onions and beef which can be found when you peel back the lid.
After adding water the broth was quite white and milky.
The smell was strangely like Parmesan mixed with milk and the taste was creamy and oily.
The bits of beef were thinly sliced just like the ones you find at Yoshinoya beef rice bowls.

These snacks look like mini crinkle cut squares and Shreddies cornflakes.
As for the taste, it had a strong black pepper taste and they were quite salty.
If you are British, you will obviously know that jelly comes in jelly blocks before you make it.
In some other countries they come in powder form like Hartley's glitter jelly.
I decided to post this so that people can see the jelly block before it is made and I always ending eating some of it before making the jelly.
It comes in a packet like this:
When you remove the wrapper, there is a pretty jelly block that is firm and tough.
To make the jelly, it is best to cut them into squares cubes.
You just simply add boiling water, let it dissolve and pour it into a container and let it set in the fridge for a few hours.
Here is the jelly that is ready.
It is slightly lighter in colour.

I don’t have the box but this was a Kellogg’s FROSTED S'MORES poptart filled with chocolate and marshmallow.
The poptart was not that sweet to start off with but then it got cloyingly sweet.
There are two flavours in this series: chicken and spare ribs.
The chicken comes with a sachet of chicken, soup powder, Hua diao wine and some beany paste.
The spare rib flavour is better because the chicken one didn't taste natural.

Despite being born and raised in Eastbourne, I have never dined at the Victorian Tea Rooms located in the middle of Eastbourne Pier.
Thankfully it was untouched by the fire in 2014.
As a foodie I decided to pay it a visit because I have not written much about my hometown.
Inside the tea room, it was just how it was when I saw it from the outside as a child.
The carpets were really familiar, perhaps they were popular and carpeted everywhere in those days.
There were golden crystal chandeliers and a picturesque view of the sea on both sides.
Looking at the menu, the Sussex Tea set was only £3.95 which includes a scone with cream, jam and a pot of tea.
In contrast to that, the Egg and Cress sandwich seemed expensive because it was £3.25 without tea but then it was freshly made with cress which you can see in the fridge cabinet.
I ordered the Egg mayonnaise and cress because I haven't had it for ages and not many places have fresh cress in the kitchen.
It was really comforting when my sandwich came, seeing all that luscious green cress in the sandwich and cress sprinkled on the salad.
As expected, it was delicious and the fresh cress did wonders.
The only let down was the service because it wasn't that friendly and it was late in the day so they were not amused when more customers came in.
While I was at the convenience store, the Tuna and Mayonnaise crisps caught my eyes.
Beside it were Tuna Mayonnaise cup noodles also by the same Korean Brand Nong Shim.
Decided to try the cup noodles because I was just curious about how it would taste.
Tuna Mayonnaise is normally a sandwich filling that is slightly creamy with chunks of tuna.
I can't read Korean so the English labelling was helpful and it was strange that the ingredients has Worchester sauce!!!!
When you peel the lid back, there are two sachets, one is the sauce and the other is some yellow thing.
There are some sort of brown bits within the noodles which I believe are possibly soya bits pretending to be tuna????
To eat, you remove the sachets, pour boiling water in the noodles.
Leave it for a while and drain the water.
There are holes at the other end of the lid which you pierce to drain.
The mayonnaise sachet was big and I was quite skeptical about the taste because that much mayonnaise is going to be really sickly.
The colour of the mayonnaise was strangely brown!!!
After mixing it, the sauce turned creamy yellow so there must be a lot of creamer in that paste!!
As for the taste, it definitely does not taste like sandwich filling but there is a strong creamer powder aftertaste in your mouth.
Not quite convinced by these noodles because they are a bit too sweet for my liking,
There are so many ready made meals to choose from these days.
Granny Marys JUST collection appealed to me because the logo was nice and being a graduate from QMUL I liked the Mary in the name.
The JUST collection does not have pasta/rice which is makes it great for sharing and they can be microwaved which saves up to 45 minutes of time and gas when you can have it almost in flash!!
Without thinking, I bought most of the range but sadly forgot to buy the Cottage Pie.
As soon as I got home, I was so excited to try them but sadly I could only try 2 boxes because they are quite big portions.
It was really hard to decide which one to try because they are all British classics.
Luckily, they don't stock the full range or I would probably have to buy it all!!!!
In the end I chose Chili Beef (with pulled beef) as it was pulled beef and not minced beef.
Basically you remove the card sleeve, pierce the film, microwave it for about 4 minutes, let it stand for 1 minute and put it in for another 3 minutes.
I paired the chili beef with Indian Rice.
The taste was fantastic with chunks of pulled beef but I underestimated how hot it was and it is spicier than other ready to eat chili con carnes and curries that I have tried.
I also tried the Parsnips in spiced honey because I have to try everything at once if I can because I just can't resist food and all being my favourite British classics!!
The parsnips were sweet with a nice hint of cracked black pepper.
The sweetness was quite soothing after that hot Chili Beef.
I can't wait to try the others soon but I am so busy with restaurant invitations that I don't have time and appetite to eat at home.
The chocolate almonds have a really buttery taste with a hint of coffee.
Having tried DOLL Hello Kitty noodles and finding edible Hello Kitties inside, I decided to get the TRANSFORMERS one to see what edible Transformers would look like.
The flavour was also unique because this is the only tomato flavour that I know of in the DOLL series.
[I made the cup noodles spin using a fidget spinner]
Well, I must say I was quite disappointed because you don't get any edible Transformers but you get a sticker.
The broth tasted like Weight watchers tomato sauce.
Milka is a brand of chocolate which originated in Switzerland and now manufactured internationally by the US confectionery company Mondelēz International (formerly known as Kraft Foods).
I was really lucky to get a bottle of this chili sauce delivered by FedEx from the Caribbean!
Quoted from FedEx:
FedEx Express launched its latest multi-market advertising campaign, which shares the story of how a small hot pepper sauce maker from Nevis in the Caribbean, Llewellyn Clarke, can realise his dream—and the dream of so many small businesses—of going global.
About Llewellyn Clarke

McDonald's have launched a new prawn burger with pineapple and a pineapple pie so tried them.
Whenever the ebi burger (prawn burger) is launched, it becomes a popular choice.
Now they have launched the ebi burger with pineapple, which basically has a slice of pineapple in the middle with the same mayonnaise sauce that they use for the chicken sandwich.
The pineapple in the burger was a bit too juicy and stole the show with its sweet flavours.
It was also difficult eating the burger because when you bite into it, you are biting against the pineapple fibres so you have to tear the pineapple.
Hopefully they will launch peach as well because that would taste quite nice.
The pineapple pie filling is the same as the apple in terms of consistency and viscosity.
It has the same sort of sweetness as the apple but it has small chunks of pineapple instead and the pineapple taste is not that strong.
The chocolate had a nice orange smell and it had pieces of crisp and chewy orange flavoured pieces in it which tasted delicious with the milk chocolate.
It tasted great after I put the chocolate in the freezer because the pieces became chewier.

As a Brit, bacon and sausages are a must have item on the plate but in Hong Kong you can't find decent sausages and back bacon so you end up dining out for them.
Recently discovered this brand called Golden Pig from the UK selling delicious sausages and bacon.
There are three flavours for the sausages:
Pork and apple:
Unsmoked back bacon:
I was greedy so I had sausages, bacon and the pork and apple burger in my lunchbox!!!!!!!!!!
The star of the show was the pork and apple burger, which was a huge burger patty that was succulent and juicy.
The bacon was flawless with the right level of saltiness on a bed of mixed grain rice.
Hopefully Golden Pig's products will be available at the supermarket soon or I will need to stock up when I see their stall at the markets.
I was really excited with the Matcha seafood flavor cup noodles because Matcha is such a common flavour that is used everywhere.
The design was also attractive, there is so much detail on it from Mount Fuji, a drome with a face on it carrying a lantern, a cute fortune cat, a geisha, a train at the bottom and lots more.
At the back, it has the usual ingredients and there is a picture of a row of capsule machines.
When you peel back the lid, you will see the usual contents found in a seafood cup noodle such as egg bits, octopus slices, cabbage, carrots and spring onions.
The only thing different is that the broth powder is green and the noodles are green.
After adding hot water it was ready to eat but I couldn't quite taste the matcha.
Got this from someone who went to Universal Studios in Japan.
Apparently they come in a box of four.
On the labelling it actually says MINI MENS and you will notice there is a banana after the word Noodle.
More photos of the cup noodle.
When you peel back the lid, there is a smell of banana which smells the same as the sweets Banana Chews.
There are bits of egg and Minions.
They basically taste the same as the usual Nissin Seafood noodles with an interesting aftertaste of those Banana chews. The noodles are very silky as well.
Overall, they were quite nice and the banana wasn't that off putting.
The ham was juicy, flavourful and tender without being too salty but the only weakness was that I could not taste any of the herbs.
I liked the easy peel portion control packs which allow one portion to be opened and consumed while the other pack can be put in the fridge.
