More new chocolates & candies

The best Cadbury range that i ever had must be this one, Macadamia Chocolate. Lotsa..and lotsa macadamia nuts it the chocolates and when i said 'lotsa'...i really mean, generously filled with macadamia!!

This is a limited edition of M&Ms. With orange & white colour candied. Hubby's favorite brand of choc but i don't really fancy.

Another limited edition of M&M - Transformers edition . Flavour : Strawberried Peanut Butter. This is quite okey for me as it has different taste to a normal M&M's candy.

A colleague who went to Japan for holiday bought me these. You can only get it in Japan. My review about this one? Very nice!! Not too sweet and the added wasabi were okey.

My trip to India

The trip that we've been waiting for has come. I came & conquered!! India was interesting!! Altho we went during the hot season but nevertheless, shopping was heaven!! I especially lurve Jaipur, colourful, friendly people & beautiful scenery.

People said its dirty, yes its dirty but hey, its something that you need to experience in other part of the world. I'm glad i did. People said it smelly, well....not all the time smelly. Some places were bearable.

The company gave two choices, Japan or India and of course i choose the latter. I wanna experience a different continent. Last year i visited Seoul, i guess it will only be fair to myself if i go to another continent, India!! Furtheremore hubby said he would not wanna bring be there...hehehe.
