{Cook And Share A Pot Of Curry} Indian Fish Curry plus Prepacked Spice Paste Giveaway

About two weeks ago, I received a facebook invitation through friends regarding about this "Cook And Share A Pot Of Curry" event which request participants to cook and share a pot of curry on Sunday, 21 August 2011(from 11:00am - 11:30pm), in Singapore or anywhere of the world in order to share/introduce this wonderful cuisine together with your family or neighbours from another culture.

And sad to say, this event is also a silent protest over a recent "Curry And Neighbours" disputes which hits media headlines and upset many Singaporean. It all happens between what a Singaporean Indian family had to put up with, due to a request from their neighbour, who has just recently moved in from China.

{Review And Giveaways} New Zealand Natural Ice-cream - Part I

Have you wonder why New Zealand Natural Ice-cream(NZN) is so delicious? That's because it is made with the freshest, best quality ingredients as well as fresh daily cream from cows that feed on the green unpolluted pastures of New Zealand. Here I so glad to receive 6 tubs of assorted premium ice-cream from NZN for a review as well as to share the joy of "Ice-cream Giveaways" with ALL readers from SINGAPORE.

This giveaway will be conducted in two different posts with 3 ice-cream flavour reviews and 2 winners on each post. So if you love ice-cream and wants to give this NZN premium ice-cream a try, read up the reviews and scroll down to the bottom of the post to participate and pick your choice for this giveaway.


My boy's first priority of choice when comes to ice-cream is always either chocolate or cookies and cream. So when he spotted these two flavour in the freezer he can't wait but to keep asking me to let them sample first.

And to my surprised he actually ditched his favourite brand of chocolate ice-cream and ask me to get more of this NZN Chocolate Ecstasy for him. He told me he loves the rich and chocolatey taste which true enough i find it taste better with a smooth finishing taste and tinge of bitterness if compared to the other bands. Further more according to NZN website, Chocolate Ecstasy ice cream was rated the best amongst a similar flavour from three other competitors in a blind test conducted by a research company (Euro RSCG Research).


Ladies or weight watcher if you are looking for something refreshing and yet 99% FAT FREE perhaps you can consider this NZN Mango Sorbet. Upon opening the cover you will be greeted by it's vibrant colour which similar to peach and smooth texture with refreshing taste. According to their leaflet this mango sorbet is blended into a smooth puree using fresh tropical mangos that comes with natural sweetness.


As you have read up from one of my recent post(HERE), NZN Classic Vanilla ice-cream is voted as one of the most popular pick among the other two leading brands of Vanilla ice-cream in Singapore. Those who have tried NZN Classic Vanilla commented that it has the smoothest texture compare to the rest and it's mild creamy taste blend well either by having it plain or serve as a topper on apple pie or brownie. Sometime we also love to have it with Root Beer to replicate our favourite Root Beer Float too.
