there's something about ..... whatever

Finally, I've waited for this moment for a long time.

I've been waiting to say "Anything lah" to those coffeeshop uncle for a long time.

It's different if you go to the stall and ask for "anything" as compared to ordering from those uncle who goes table to table taking orders.

Also, I have waited a long time to ensure that all drinks stall holders know what I'm ordering, or it would be totally embarassing.

So that day finally came.

Uncle: Ai lim jui mai?
Me: "Anything" lah.
Only this time, the script didn't work out the same way as I have hope for.
Uncle: Buay Liao, "Whatever" eh sai boh?

And so my "Whatever" finally arrived. It's been a super long time since I have that feeling of anticipation. It's almost like having sex for the first time.

I've always been a fan of local soft drinks. My favourite is Kickapoo, followed by Sinalco. And now Greenspot is making a comeback. Not too sure if they are local, but Anything and Whatever are definitely local.

At the side of the can, it proudly stated "Product of Singapore". WAH.... don't pray pray.

I was expecting a carbonated drink, considering the advertisements were quite "Hyper". I supposed Hyper = carbonated. But it was not to be.

I was also expecting "whatever" to be somewhat of a bright colour, something fun, but it was a dull green.

So with my expectations somewhat very different, my anticipation level went up a few notch.

And here goes my first Sip...... taste like.......

SUGAR CANE!!!!!!!!!!
KNN!!!! In fact, it's CHRYSANTHEMUN pretending to be SUGAR CANE!!!! At least that was what the "incredients" says.

After all the advertisements, this product of Singapore gives us Chrysanthemun Tea???!?!

Anyway.... after visiting their website.....
I realised "Anything" will be carbonated.

I can't wait to taste it.

You win liao lor. How on earth did you come up with that link? Soft Drinks and NEWater. haha.

Anyway, it's very interesting. Try going to a english speaking stall and ask for "anything". You get very interesting response.

I went to Circular Road's Alam Shah Coffeeshop, which is run by Indian.

He Asked what I wanted and I answered "Anything".

He replied.."Yes.. We anything also have"

That makes my day.
