ais kacang, ais, ais kacang
bila cuaca panas merasa dahaga
singgah di gerai ais kacang di minta
susu dan jagung
kacang dan lengkong
air gula berwarna
campur semua, enak rasanya
kegemaran kita semua
This is the childhood song that is most memorable to me, and I’ll explain later, but first, remember the post I penned on this blog last week about four mascots spotted at Bukit Bintang?
Now we know what it is all about, the four mascots actually represents four flavors of milk. A reader guessed ice cream, pretty close, since ice cream’s main ingredient is milk anyway.
They four of them represents Dutch Lady red bean, moo melon, caramel toffee, and sweet corn.
vote for your favorite flavor
From now until the 28th of May, 2011, you’ll be able to vote for your favorite flavor on the Dutch Lady Milk Election page on facebook.
Just like any elections, there is a big stake here – the flavor with highest vote will be the newest addition to Dutch Lady Malaysia’s UHT milk range.
Every flavor also has its own supporter too. The talented Ziana Zain supporting Red Bean. We have Faizal Tahir the singer-song writer behind Sweet Corn. Our very own super model Amber Chia with Moo Melon, and Football twins national starters Aidil and Zaquan (hey we won the Tiger cup!) pulling their collective weights for Caramel Toffee flavor.
Of course now you know which is my favorite flavor based on the ais kacang song in the beginning of this post. Red beans of course! It is not really just a nostalgic flavor for me, but one that I really love to have in my ice cream, dessert, kuih, and if possible, milk.
So I’ve casted my vote for red bean,and I urge you to vote too! Undi laaaa untuk Malaysia so we can make this a reality! Red bean milk will be fantastic.
The steps are simple, to ensure fairness, there’s only 1 vote per person but you are allowed to change your vote up until 28th of May, 2011. Go to the facebook page to do it ya!
While you’re there, click “Like” for the page too. If we achieve 200,000 likes, Dutch Lady will donate 20,000 milk packs to charity. Now who says your click doesn’t count?
I couldn’t really find the old ais kacang song on youtube but here’s the MTV created in support for Dutch Lady Red Bean milk, pretty catchy ya?
