Great colouful design but unfortunately I didn't like the taste because it was just sweet, sweet and sweet and the curry flavour was lacking.

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.

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.

These noodles are available in the UK under Nestle.
At the back, there are instructions on how to cook them.
As with all British Instant noodles, it is best to use less water as the flavour get diluted.
The noodles are soft within minutes as the strands of noodles are very fine.
At McDonalds they had this new chocolate pie so I went and tried it.
It was launched before in 2009 but the size was smaller.
Photo of the chocolate pie in 2009.
The 2016 version looked like the normal version but filled with thick chocolate paste that was not too sweet with the right amount of cocoa flavouring.
At McDonalds, they had Masala McWings which was new so I tried it.
The ones I got were a bit dry and the taste was more like salty chicken tikka.
I didn't try this but the thought of chocolate orange coffee was interesting.
From the packaging it comes from Indonesia and they have lots of instant coffee products over there.
I am posting this because the cutlery on Virgin Atlantic was impressive.
On the handle it says "Designed by Virgin Atlantic in London" but unfortunately it was hard to photograph.
BEANZ FOR GROWN UPZ!!!
At first you can't taste the salt but then you can afterwards.
Palatable green tea taste.
Compared to other countries, the Malay kitkat is shorter.
The Kitkat Sakura matcha comes in a box and inside there are three packs of two fingers.
They were not too sweet but the matcha was not strong and I couldn't taste the sakura.
Japanese Nestle purple potato kitkat.
Australian Cookies & Cream kitkat.
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.
I love Taramasalata which is a Greek dip made with marinated cod roe blended with breadcrumbs, oil and flavoured onion.
The Taramosalata by Orexis was quite good, it wasn't too salty or fishy which was great with the pita bread.
teapigs is a famous brand of artisan tea in the UK.
They are now all over the world.
I encountered them a few years ago when they had a stall at the Island East Markets and now you can find them all over Hong Kong and available at most restaurants and cafes.
Time flies and it is now their 10th birthday.
Thank you tea pigs for this lovely box which had the birthday blend and a glass cup and saucer to go with it.
I loved the packaging because it was colourful and the graphics are well designed like their other teas. This is what makes them memorable and outstanding.
On the back of the pack, there is a special message from Louise which I couldn't agree more especially memories of Woolworths pic'n'mix.
Anyway, lets get back to the tea.
jelly and ice cream blend is the best way to celebrate because it is fun and everyone likes it.
The ingredients in this tea are: apple, blueberry, orange peel, liquorice root, citric acid, strawberry pieces, vanilla pieces, natural vanilla flavouring, raspberry flavouring, natural cream flavouring, natural biscuit flavouring.
When I took the tea temples out, there was a lovely sweet berries and cream smell and the tea has a pretty pink colour to it with a fine tart taste to it.
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.
I have never liked Puerh teas because they taste too earthy and like mud in my opinion.
Recently I went past this stall and saw these tea tablets and got some to try because they smelt quite nice especially the glutinous rice one 糯米香普洱 and Lotus Leaf 荷叶普洱沱茶.
Puerh and glutinous rice was really fragrant like pandan.
The puerh lotus leaf is like drinking tea after just having eaten lotus leaf wrapped rice dimsum.
There are other flavours as well such as lemon, rose, dates etc.
I love Pandan so I decided to make some pandan pancakes after trying some expensive ones at some restaurant.
I got a pancake mix from the supermarket which just requires water and added some Pandan essence to the mixture and it was ready to go.

After pan frying them at low heat until both sides were brown, they were ready to eat.
Next time I will try adding hot chocolate powder to make chocolate pancakes.
Obviously I got this drink because of the design.
There were two flavours: Milk or coconut.
I liked the way it was like a milk bottle with a cow merged into a teabag to represent the beverage inside which was Assam tea.
There was a strong Assam tea taste but you couldn't really taste the coconut.
Overall, I liked the drink because it was not too sweet.
More details about the design:
I was really lucky my brother took me to the Cotswolds because the Broadway Tower was nearby.
He showed me pics of it on google and I was definitely interested.
It was this striking tower against lovely blue skies and endless fields of grass surrounded by deer.
We would have gone up the tower but it was late so it was closed and so was the nuclear bunker but Thankfully there are some photos on Tripadvisor posted by others so you can see what it looks like.
