2 Litre Ribena

Today is an inane day and I'm just going to post an inane post coz tomorrow is Chinese New Year Eve and I'm nowhere even near the New Year spirit as most chinese are in Malaysia!

Look at the size of this bottle of Ribena! Have you ever seen Ribena in this size? I haven't, that's why I was shock when I went to buy my Ribena the other day at the supermarket. Its in a 2 litre bottle now when it used to be in a litre bottle. Good leh, more value for your money!


It comes with a handy handle at the back so you can pour the syrup out carefully without making a mess of yourself! I love drinking Ribena eversince I was little and I still drink it today. Its choke full of vitamin C and more importantly tastes excellent! Tell me about your favourite drink you still drink from childhood.

Happy Chinese New Year to all the chinese bloggers around the world! I won't be on hiatus during the festive days so do drop by to say hello coz its going to be very quiet since most bloggers will be on new year break.

Going down to Little Bourke for a psedo-reunion-dinner?

I only hope that Melbourne doesn't go crazily hot again this weekend. :/

Cute! I got the Ribena berry soft toys. Since you like Ribena so much, can I email you the cutie PHOTO (only) to keep you company for CNY? Where you email huh?

Ok, I will eat an extra portion of whatever I am going to eat on CNY on your behalf, ok? Get the spirit up, visit Chinatown?

hey..
that ribena looks FABULOUS !!!! Im gonna get myself one once i return to Perth.... ribena is my favourite too.. I make my own ribena 7-up.. gosh..
my favourite drink growing up??
Gotta be Kuching local special drink.. Barley Lemon Peng !!!
But the popularity is decreasing over the years... giving way to newer drinks like the 3-layer teh c peng.
Nowadays i order barley lemon peng at any coffee shops, those waitor/waitress would give me a one kind look... hahahahaaaa
but i still love it !!!

compact ler... unlike the Evian mineral water i saw at Ngiu Kee that day... something like that shape but it's in a flat glass bottle. Whopping RM25!!!! Neways, Happy Chinese New Year! Grandma with uncle and his family in Melbourne now... enjoying the 'beautiful hot weather'. Wakakaka!!

Jacky said...

Wahaha, that's a big bottle of Ribena. Not sure if they have it here in Malaysia... have not drink that for some good years!

Wuching said...

alex: RM25 for water! too much wor & why ur grandma wanna go so far for hot weather? sigh..HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR to u too! :)

jacky: i would say they would have it by now but maybe Ribena's not ur drink so what is ur drink?

robin said...

yeah, you mix a small portion (to your liking lah) of ribena to the 7-up. It is quite famous for one era in Kuching, few years back. Well, today, almost everyone has forgotten about it. hahahaaa...

Wuching said...

robin, i might give that a try if i get a chance in the future..:)

Jacky said...

After my badminton sessions, or during, I always take 100Plus.

Wuching said...

jacky: i love 100plus too! i always drink that in malaysia but its too expensive here..:(

SooHK said...

Do you believe that my mom used to make ribena for me to drink? My memory of it is that my mom just went to the garden, pluck some berries and then went into the kitchen and then came out with ribena, and then into the fridge..and hours later, a cold ribena ready to be drink...

Wuching said...

soohk: did it taste like the one from the bottle? i'm sure it can be made from blackcurrants but maybe it tasted different?

Che-Cheh said...

My fav drinks are Ribena!!! and Milo!!!
Don't know why I never get bored of their taste. I like it cold.

Wuching said...

che-cheh: u mean ribena & milo together? :|

Che-Cheh said...

Nope! :p

Wuching said...

che-cheh: of course not! silly me! :P
