I really liked this can of All Day Breakfast by Morrisons because there was black pudding inside it.

IMG_20170701_191244.jpg

The baked beans were tasty too infused with a sausage and black pudding taste with a hint of herbs from the Cumberland sausage.
The interesting thing is that on the product description it doesn't mention Cumberland sausages but they are Cumberland in the Full product description.
IMG_20170701_191255.jpg

Although it was a little bit too salty, the sausages and bacon egg bites were actually tasty and the texture was good compared to other brands I have tried.
In the can, I found, two pieces of black pudding, two sausages and some bacon bites which I can't remember how many were there.

To be honest the cheese taste was a little different to what I was expecting but it tasted like the rind of Brie cheese.

Anyway, I love Pot Noodles however I wish they could change the lid material from foil because it gets pierced easily.
The lid some how got pierced on the way home so I don't know if that would have affected the taste of the Cheese.

Got these Doll fried noodle seafood oyster sauce flavour with shrimp roe Instant noodle 公仔蝦子蠔油海鮮味炒麵 which had a bright yellow lid with holes for draining the water.


The ones I have seen before come in a square PFC box but I think the design of this one is better for draining water.
This flavour was quite unique because there was a sachet of dried prawn roe to mix it.

 Step 1: add hot water and cover with lid

  Step :2 Drain the water when the noodles are soft.

 Step 3: add the sachets of dried prawn roe and oyster sauce

 Step 4: Shake the noodles with the lid on:

 Step 5: give it a final stir and eat
IMG_20170601_012958.jpg

The taste of the noodles were a bit too sweet for my liking and also quite salty but a fun experience because you have to shake it.

Video of the Bacon, Macaroni and Cheese toastie:


I was surprised to see the toasties so decided to try it.
IMG_20170615_165238.jpg

There was cheese, sweetcorn with mushroom or the Bacon, Macaroni and Cheese toastie.
The sweetcorn would probably taste sweet and weird so I went for the bacon one.
bacon.jpg

The whole thing was quite nice and not too cheesy because the cheese inside is the gooey processed cheese similar to squeezy cheese sauce.
The bacon was a little bit thick and hard but the macaroni was spring and al dente.

[McDonalds, Hong Kong]
Loaded fries with bacon and cheese.

The fries tasted quite nice because of the coarse salty bacons bits but the cheese sauce tasted more like burger sauce with cheese flavouring added to it.

In 2014, there was a similar thing by McDonalds with cheese sauce and bacon bits that you garnish yourself.

VitaVitasoy has launched two new drinks in the calci-plus series.


The new Coconut Hi-Calcium healthy drink and Almond Hi-Calcium healthy drink are both low in sugar, cholesterol free and high in calcium.
IMG_20170508_220721.jpg
++++++++
Almond Hi-Calcium healthy drink:
IMG_20170509_010000.jpg
The almond is light with a lovely nutty taste and not that sweet just how it is as advertised.
It is said to be good for the skin and cardio.
++++++++
Coconut Hi-Calcium healthy drink:
IMG_20170509_005930.jpg
The coconut is comparatively sweeter than the almond but not that sweet.
I liked it because you could taste the coconut while the taste is not too milky.
According to the carton, it is said to help in weight management.

Tried this new milky soda drink by schweppes.

18341901_1320951114686559_7733307582160382135_n.jpg

Unfortunately, I didn't like it because the taste was weird, if you like Japanese calpis then this is for you.
The labelling says "lactic flavoured' so I should have guessed it was similar to CALPIS!!

M&M’S has teamed up with favorite comic heroes to spread colorful chocolate fun in celebration of the new Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie.
The new M&M’S commercial, M&M’S “Movies,” is airing now online and in cinemas.
It features iconic characters, Red and Yellow, in a movie theatre.

Video of the M&M’S commercial:
In Hong Kong, they have sent gigantic tubs to the media containing six bottles of M&M’S branded with Galaxy Vol. 2" characters.
You can see how big this tub is which is sitting on a huge sofa!!

I am not a fan of Matcha but this is a popular flavour in Hong Kong.
McDonalds Hong Kong have launched this Matcha softserve.
Matcha cone, Matcha waffle cone, Matcha McFlurrys with genmai and Matcha sundae.
Some of them have a matcha Kitkat served with it.


IMG_20170413_173209.jpg

Decided to try the Matcha Cone so that I could try the softserve and matcha wafer cone but it costs different at different branches.
The tea is also charged differently at different branches.
17861632_1302016743246663_7312448552483701080_n.jpg

Overall, I wasn't impressed or surprised because it just tasted like the usual matcha flavour with a creaminess but the cone tasted a bit artificial.

I liked the packaging of this because it was a plastic can in a shape of a ball.
The combination of orange wine and cream sound good.

I was really excited with the Matcha seafood flavor cup noodles because Matcha is such a common flavour that is used everywhere.

20170320_213505.jpg

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.

20170320_213147.jpg
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.
20170319_210730.jpg

IMG_20170319_210806.jpg

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.
20170319_211126.jpg

Overall, they were quite nice and the banana wasn't that off putting.

I only write about gadgets when they are worth bragging out.
Recently my mobile phone died so I had to get a new one asap, so I got a Samsung J1 Mini thinking it would be good but it was slow and the battery goes fast.
In desperation I got another phone which turned out to be a miracle just like its name EVERMIRACLE S.
Before I got it, I googled this phone but all I got was French and Arabic because the makers EVERTEK are located in Tunisia.
Anyway, I decided to risk getting it and it turned out to be so good I found myself wanting to get another one for backup but sadly I had bought the last one :(

The phone specifications were clearly labelled on the factory screen protector which I have stuck to the blue back cover.

IMG_20170225_221617_5.jpg

Without being wowed by the functions of the phone, I was already impressed with the contents in the box.
IMG_20170225_220518.jpg

Back covers in three different colours and a clear hard cover protector:
IMG_20170225_220852.jpg
Screen protector and contents in the box:

IMG_20170225_220221_5.jpg
I have never bought a phone with all these included.
These are often slipped in free of charge if the dealer is nice.

Anyway, now to the phone.

Here were the functions which I thought were cool!!!
As I am not a professional tech review, I am just pointing out what I feel is cool so to be honest, I don't know if these features are part of android 5.0 or they are part of the functions from EVERTEK.

Fake call:
If you press the fake call button, it will countdown from 15 seconds and you can stop it within the 15 seconds, when it reaches zero, the phone will ring as if someone called you with a withheld number and you answer it like normal.
17021567_1258996127548725_5032124620074915508_n.jpg
The funny thing is that if you do answer the answer the call, it will play a female voice in English saying "hi, can you send me the file as possible please!!"
It was a bit difficult filming from my other phone so you can only vaguely hear the voice.
(Hopefully I will explore that sometime by setting the language to French and see if it will speak French on the fake call.)
I am curious to know if there is a database of pre recorded languages so it will speak the relevant language according to the language setting on your phone.

I am not that keen on Sweet potato flavoured drinks because they can taste quite artificial and I think that artificial taste is like Playdoh!!!!
The sweet potato milk by Trappist dairy was not that bad and quite palatable.

I love lemon and pepper so these potato hoops were addictive yet at the same time I found them way to spicy for my tastebuds so I couldn't eat it all in one go.

Mint Maltesers

Discovered these new Mint Maltesers trending in Australia and I was so lucky to get a pack as my friend was in Australia.
They are so addictive with a minty taste but a bit too sweet so perhaps it would taste better if they had used dark chocolate.
