Snowflake

The Japan! Combo. I don’t know why I like it so much. Or how did I end up choosing this over the bestseller - taroballs with whatever. Or what the heck was I doing in a shaved ice dessert shop in the first place? I don’t know. But I really like it. Maybe it’s the soy ice crush. Soy milk is one of my favourite drinks - warm, iced or frozen. Or maybe it’s the chewy green tea balls. Or the slight bitter aftertaste and artificial chlorophyll scent that work wonders with sweetened soy milk. Like Starbucks’ costly, classy soy milk green tea latte - my only choice there. I don’t know. It just tastes good. I have a loyalty card, by the way. The words Dessert Lover Club fill 1/3 of the card. Sickening, I know. And I'm just five stamps away from redeeming any item from the menu. But the Japan! Combo is no longer listed on their website. Instead, a new monthly special has been introduced. Sesame Sensation. Peanut ice with sesame balls. Great, just great.

ai wei, it's not on their online menu, so i think it's not available already. So sad! :( but do check out the sesame one. Psst. I might try also. Hehehe....

choi yen, i know exactly how you feel! The crowd is crazy, right? I hope they'll open one near kepong. Then, can go during odd hours...hehe

j2kfm, haha, hi5! I must be one of the oldest patrons there, only behind the kids' parents. Sigh, but good that our appetites are still very much young and energetic. :)

I also think the Taro balls are their masterpiece. I love grabbing some whenever I get a chance.
