note to self:

never purchase milk from a hong kong "dairy." my gut told me not to, but i was desperate to enjoy a hearty bowl of raisin bran with ice cold milk, and a carton of skim from the kowloon dairy (kowloon is a heavily populated district in hong kong -- and i ain't never seen a cow there) was the only option left at the corner market last night (now i know why).

it tasted like foot.

here it is:



and there it goes:

bless your heart. i really don't know if i could manage ... i usually partake of cereal 2 times a day. and there really isn't anything worse than bad milk. i shudder at the thought.

OK, a few clues....milk drink? Doesn't the word "milk" imply the drink?

And I live by the hard and fast rule "if I don't see cows, I won't try the milk." ...Ok, I just made that up....

all i could think of is when van and i wanted cereal in germany and we had to settle for room temperature milk... we both dry heaved our cereal down and decided that we'd just wait til back in the states. i'm sorry, friend, if i could dry ice pack you some i totally would... ooh... i can send you some condensed milk..powdered milk?? yummmm ;)

is it just me or does that milk have a yellowish hue to it?

Yeah, you have to be careful when you drink milk from other countries. At least they sell it cold for you. Must countries drink it warm!! That is one thing us Americans have going for us....ice cold, tasty milk!!!

I am a friend of Angela Newman's. I served my mission in HK. I about spit when I read you bought mild from the Kowloon Dairy! I hear ya sister, I missed the milk while I was there and I could never get past the soy milk. I bought myself milk for christmas and it tasted terrible but I ate it with cereal anyways because it was $20.00.

old me.
