Ribena Lychee

First of all, sorry I had to post this on a fasting day :'( This afternoon I had this sudden crave of having Ribena Lychee. Surprisingly I had only tasted it once at SS2 Murni, Subang and it was few years back. I was not all into this drink at that moment but somehow today I have this irresistible urge to sip it. And it was only 12 noon! ><"

I googled for Ribena Lychee recipe and there they are, all Ribena lychee recipes ready to be tested! And it happens that my Mom got a nice big can of Nikko Lychee in syrup last Wednesday from a very kind neighbour. So, when my mom was about to go out to pick my lil sister * yeah my brother ponteng as usual* I chipped in to buy Ribena!

Unlike other people we don't have Ribena at home. My mom said she heard that Ribena can cause Asthma. But she did grow up with Ribena. In fact she brought Ribena everyday to school! I had this feeling my parents purposely didn't expose us to anything except plain water to save $$$ T_T I grew up thinking only rich people drink Ribena and that thought never did walk away even from the tiniest space of my brain :'(

Since I never bought Ribena I thought the price was RM25.90 per bottle. Apparently it only cost me RM7.90! *evil look to my mom* All of this years I've been restraining myself from Ribena for nothing! T_T

Man that was quite a post on just Ribena! Okay okay I think I should start writing the recipe now.

One big can of lychee
4-5 scoops Ribena(using a laddle not ice cream scoop ><")
3 cups of cold water
Ice cubes

In a jug, mix all ingredients except ice cubes. Put ice cubes and scoop 2-3 lychees from the jug into a glass followed by pouring the ribena lychee.

My mom and lil brother and I guess my lil sister too was sooo skeptical about this drink at first. According to mom "Ribena is not for grown ups" My lil bro on the other said "it looks weird" My sister was being skeptical in a very subtle and polite way. She quickly bought Tropical Apple juice when she knew I was making this drink!!! T_T

I had to lie to my lil brother saying the drink was delicious and it may look different a bit *ehem not weird* because it's a 5-star hotel drink that's why. But I forgot that he was 13 already not 3. I got use to lie to him whenever I want to force him to taste whatever I'm making by the way..hehe..

However, just when the clock strikes "time for berbuka" the drink finished just within 5 seconds! I only manage to drink a glass! But my family being as cruel as always they still doesn't want to admit it was delicious!

Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

It's really very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use world wide web for that purpose, and take the latest news.

I think that everything posted was actually very reasonable.
But, think about this, what if you composed a catchier post title?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean "Ribena Lychee" is a little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and
watch how they create news titles to grab viewers to click.
You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers interested about
everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a
lot more useful than ever before.
