Every year on the first of June, lies a day that many of us don’t realize happening, but undoubtedly more of us should – the World Milk Day.
The date was set by United Nations of Food and Agricultural Organization in recognition of milk being an important nutritional food source for everyone.
So for those of you who just had a glass of milk today, HAPPY WORLD MILK DAY!
To those who hasn’t, go get a glass. 😀

I think the guy who first said “man look at the cow, I’m gonna milk her and drink her milk!” though came out weird, must deserve the highest credit for bringing humanity to where we are today in terms of nutritions. Fortunately, we now live in the day and age where we don’t have to milk our own cows just to enjoy a glass of milk. They are readily available.
For me, these Dutch Lady ready to drink milk that you can find pretty much at every grocery stores and many convenient shops will be a much wiser choice. Freshly pasteurized, chilled, and ready to drink. Other than pure milk, there are flavored versions too.
Well, the verdict is out. At the World Milk Day celebration held at 1 Utama on 29th May, the winning flavor was revealed to be Sweet Corn.
In the last 3 weeks or so, there were over 200,000 votes casted (or 232,066 ot be exact!) That was an awesome respond and a testament of the milk drinking culture here in our own country. Sweet corn managed an astounding 76,000 over votes.
I personally voted for red beans, did all I could to convince more people to vote for it but unfortunately it fell short just a bit. I mean, if I already came up with the good old “ais kacang” song.. what more could I do right?
Judging at the total votes of around 33% that sweet corn managed, I think the race must have been pretty close. I like my apom and ais kacang to have sweet corn in them, so why not with milk too? So congratulations to Jagung!
Sweet corn flavor will be available as a limited edition UHT flavour in the market from mid-July onwards at all super and hypermarkets, I can’t wait to try it out!
But if you’re on KL, JB, Penang, or Kuantan today (1st June, 2011), do check out Dutch Lady’s World Milk Day celebration schedule and get a chance to try out the new flavor too! Check out the schedule below!
