If you are interested in buying Cadbury Hot Chocolate, you can buy it online here. Otherwise, read on to learn a neat little trick I found to make your Cadbury Hot Chocolate drink as rich and velvety smooth as possible. When I was in primary school, my older brother and I always looked forward to our afternoon cup of hot chocolate. We’d make it with four cubes of sugar (without my mother’s knowledge) and loved to have it with buttered baguette. That was many, many years ago. Until recently, when I suddenly started drinking a cup of hot chocolate every day, hot … Continue reading
I come from a people who are truly committed to their tea drinking. On my mother’s side of the family, every time is tea time. I am sure some of you, my readers, can relate to your mothers being this way too. 🙂 And when I say tea, I don’t mean the wimpy mixture of tea and water served to you at most establishments, where you get to mix the water and tea in your cup as you put together your tea.

I first signed up for Nakumatt’s customer reward scheme in 2003, when it first came out. I was making a big purchase at Nakumatt Mega, when the cashier asked me whether or not I had a Nakumatt Smartcard. Having no clue as to what he was talking about, he told me that a Nakumatt Smartcard was a card that allowed customers to accumulate points with every purchase made at Nakumatt. These points would then one day be redeemable for awards – sort of the way it’s done in a frequent flyer’s program. At the time, I was not much of … Continue reading
A while back, a friend and I were being lazy about dinner. Instead of cooking, we decided to buy gourmet pizza (from Mediterraneo in Westlands), along with a bottle of wine from On the Run, and head back home to relax and hang out. We were set on having white wine with our pizza, but weren’t familiar with any of the wines that we found at On the Run.
