All the Asian foods (^-^)/

During the holiday I got to shop at my local Asian shops and I bought lots of nice food and drink

I tried Pokka melon milk which tastes really nice, it's a Singaporean drink.

I also tried cookies and cream but I was honestly disappointed, the drink tasted way too sweet for me and didn't really taste like cookies at all.

I tried Ramune lemon flavour first which I didn't was that special, it just tasted like lemonade. But I decided to still give Ramune a try since it's so popular, and I found out that the strawberry flavour Ramune is really nice! It reminded me of fizzy candy ^ - ^

I attempted to make my own bubble tea at home using these tapioca pearls, but they don't really taste of much so I probably won't buy them again.

I also tired a powdered version of green tea, originally I wanted to get matcha tea (matcha is strong green tea). I don't usually like green tea but I tried matcha ice cream and I liked it, so I wanted to try matcha again.

This soy chocolate drink was nice

I also got Cici drinks which I absolutely love! The flavours are an interesting alternative to everyday British drinks, they include grape, pineapple, peach, mango etc. and they have yummy jelly bits in them.

A small Asian shop where I often buy most of my Asian food sold these which I was always curious to try, but I didn't know what they were because all the writing is in Kanji.
So I finally tried one and now I'm totally hooked! Xiang Piao Piao is a bubble tea that you can make at home either hot or cold, all you have to do is add hot water - if you want it cold add a small amount of hot water and fill the rest with cold water and ice. If you like bubble tea then I encourage you to try it (⌒▽⌒)

I had a custard bun from a Chinese bakery because I absolutely love custard buns and also pork buns.

And I'm addicted to Mama creamy tom yum noodles, if you like spicy food and tai curries/soups it's likely that you will love this too. 

Grape gummies are one of my favourites, lychee and strawberry ones are also really good.

And milk pocky I love too!

I also love making tom yum soup with baby corn, tomatoes, mushrooms and prawns. 

I hope this post was useful, Merry Christmas and have a happy new year!
