Rach: The Ice Cream Man is one of the many hidden treasures in Haji Lane! Comb through the streets hard enough and a gateway to an food adventure with interesting flavors awaits. A simple brand name it may be, but don’t be too quick to judge! Wasabi and SOY SAUCE ice cream anyone???
The staffs there were really accommodating and they genuinely wanted you to try out their specialties! So they were totally cool with letting us try the different flavors. Just ask away! I’m serious, they are really nice about it!
I got to try the Strawberry Sorbet, Wasabi, Soy Sauce, Jackfruit, and Green Peas… What a unique range! And you know how after you’ve sampled a couple of different flavors and you end up choosing the flavor which you didn’t try? I chose Baileys, and I probably hit the jackpot :p
Rach: Once again for the 14892750th time, I’m steering off my healthy-eating radar.
I’ve a confession to make. I’ve long plotted my mark on OUAM even before my outing with my cousins was confirmed on that day. In fact, I didn’t get myself a drink during dinner so that this little power bomb could sit in my belly nicely without me feeling too bloated. I was so glad when I found out that they do serve their milkshakes in mini sizes!
And for once, milkshake isn’t so much like sloppy melted ice cream! Hoorah~!

ED: So we made our way to Baskin Robins and the event started already! Luckily Jeanine had media invites so we got free goodie bags! Which has totally awesome contents! (pst got a freeee Banana Royale and a freeee pint vouchers leh!! ha I’m Singaporean too k so i also like free stuff) we were also entitled to ALL WE CAN EAT ICE-CREAM OMFG plus we were given a chance at the milkshake making contest! That aside, guess who I met there!
That’s rightttt everybody’s favourite, the leader of the SPGs~ Barbarella Baskin Robins!~ She’s really damn funny and actually quite pretty in person! She was there to promote and host some games and give away an ipad 2 for the lucky draw! Which some lucky chap who ALREADY owns an ipad 2 won I can’t believe his luck! Whats more he even took the opportunity to publicise his website wth. But what i was pretty lucky too as i got a scoop of ice cream from Barbarella! Here’s the vid its damn funny you guys gotta watch!
ED: 15 years ago, mini me would beg mom and dad politely with puss in boots eyes for ice cream. If I was a good boy, they’d buy me a paddle pop. (Zzz) Or maybe a waffle ice cream from ice cream uncle. What ever type of ice cream i would shut up and eat, and be a happy kid. I only realized I’ve been fooled all my life when i had Swensons for the first time. On the contrary, kids these days are spoiled for choice for many new brands of ice cream. But they wouldn’t scream just for any ice cream, only the good ones.
