Battle of Malaysian Yogurts(Nestle, Dutch Lady, Marigold)

Looks like i have too much time on hand…
Who makes better yogurt? Dutch Lady’s, Nestle or Marigold
Pictured above
Dutch Lady Shine (zero fat): RM1.99
Dutch Lady yogurt: RM1.69
Marigold yogurt: RM1.49
Nestle yogurt: RM1.79
Picture left to right is same sequence of the first pic
Shine exudes a scary bright red color(prob due to it is raspberry strawberry flavor, while the rest are all strawberries)
Shine: the worst among all, taste artificial and the color scares me. also the priciest at RM1.99.
Dutch lady: creamy, sour and sweet and the same time, nice
Marigold: the palest color of them all, also surprisingly best tasting, creamy, and have the most strawberry bits
Nestle: texture is similar to Shine, prob due to the zero percent fat factor, kinda grainy and watery, not creamy
Winner: Marigold… đŸ˜€

Want some quality expensive burger? The Daily Grind is where you should go. It is located on the floor below Bangsar Village supermarket – Village Grocer.
drink currently on promotion: dragon fruit blended with orange juice, RM10++
menu (beef burgers and non-beef burgers), most expensive one is foie gras burger priced at RM55
my classic beef burger, RM27++, ummm, satisfy my quality beef burger cravings. the thick cut fries which are not heavily salted is quite a refreshing change too. whole 180g of hamburger
Chinese new year burger – shanghai surprise, not to my liking RM28, the crispy bits are fried noodle.
homemade tomato ketchup, nice , much less sweeter than commercial ketchup and taste homey
tomato and chili sauce
price: 5% government tax

We went to this portuguese settlement area, near the sea for some baked fish. Parameswara which is located on the furtheset end of the above pic is closed, so went to another stall instead.
We went to first stall, D’muara Ikan bakar.
Here they sell fishes, squid and prawn.
The seafood looks fresh, but they are awfully lots of flies, in all the stalls here. price is quite steep, fish RM30/kg, prawn RM65/kg etc
pungent spicy sauce to go with the seafood
nasi lemak, RM0.60
rice is fragrant, quite nice
tasteless otak otak, RM0.60
coconut, RM3 each, quite cheap
sotong, here is 2 large squid is sweet sour style, RM22.50 for this portion, very fresh and good
baked fish, juicy and fresh though they is slight hint of fishiness, think they only baked this with some salt. RM33 for this fish weight slight more than 1kg.
polished clean, this meal cost about RM55, not as expensive as i thought it will be
