Hail MILO

Why are periods before vacations so tensed up? Is there like some unsigned agreement that says to have fun though must first suffer?

We need to review that contract!

Its either tonnes of work, tonnes of to do things, to do things list that keeps growing or you're sick!

Like most Malaysians, theres one thing I've been doing for the past week, stocking up on MILO. Yessiree the foreign drink that has become so Malaysian, you miss it everytime you're not in the country.

Ritual deems that the last thing and the first thing one sips is the elixir called MILO.

Hail MILO hail MILo!!!!

Anyone with rituals we should know off?

Always do a checklist...because no matter how hard you try to prepare for a vacation, there always something you will forget. For worse case scenario, see the movie Home Alone 1, 2, 3...

I drink Bournvita with pasum pal while in India! Hehe! Taste like Milo. Wish they served it in a bigger cup!

Yeahla, you have to pay for all the happiness during vacation. So be tense first than be relax. Instead of being relaxed then being tension :P

I love milo. I just can't have it now as much as I used. The one thing I like to do, is filling up the cup with loads of Milo. Than pouring some ice cold water in. Very little, just 1/10 of the amount of Milo. Then mix it all around. You'll get this thick paste of Milo, with some crunchy bits as some of the Milo can't dissolve. Mmmm yummy. Munch Munch, Slurp Slurp. :) You can also add some coffee for some bitter sweet taste.

I stock up Milo at home coz it was too cheap in Tesco. And usually, it costs about Rm9.50 for a pack of 20. Now, it's only Rm7.50. Something fishy?

I never travel without a small bottle of Johnson & Johnson's baby bath (the blue one).

I use it to bathe daily at home so it's the one smell that reminds me of home when I travel.

Milo?!!! Can be substituted with Hot Choc drink. But the 2 things Malaysians can really live without, IMHO, of course if Maggi Mee and Sos Cili Maggi!

It's so difficult to get these things else where!
