max brenner's  
on a particularly cold and windy summerday last month, mel and i grabbed a quick catch-up over hot chocolate at max brenner's in QV.



we cursed the melbourne weather as we shivered and chattered while trying to talk coherently. cradling warm 'hugmug's in our hands was such a lovely feeling. we sipped hot chocolate from the little spouts and relished every delicious drop that went down our throats. it was quite an experience.

mel had a dark hot chocolate while i went for a white one. it was so, so awesome. most people who know me know i'm a white chocolate fan. max brenner does a thick, creamy white hot chocolate which isn't too cloying or too sweet. it was perfect. they could have thrown in more marshmallows though. ;)

i'm so doing this again when the weather turns cold!

that one's mel's. :)
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 12:59 pm (UTC)
i meant, its the same mug? cos they look different somehow.

do you reckon they sell the mugs? :PPP
JVdrag0nette on February 20th, 2007 01:01 pm (UTC)
yes, that's the back view. we styled the picture like that to show both sides. :)

i'm sure they sell it. max brenner is at esplanade in singapore. can check it out there.

ooo okok, i thought its a sugar container or something. /grins.

oooh okokays! else gotta trouble you to lug it back for me already. :P~
JVdrag0nette on February 20th, 2007 01:05 pm (UTC)
babe, i would love to but i'm already overweight. sorted out some of my things that i left behind 4 years ago and there are things i really have to keep. am already gonna be shipping some of my stuff back!
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 01:09 pm (UTC)
no la kidding la. ;)

are you taking SQ, sweets?

actually hor, you can try unaccompanied baggage rather than shipping. i think it works out to be cheaper, if not as cheap.
JVdrag0nette on February 20th, 2007 01:11 pm (UTC)
i'm on qantas this time. SQ was fully booked for jan2007.
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 01:13 pm (UTC)
qantas is damn freaking strict on baggage allowance. be careful ok?

are you travelling alone? or is there someone flying with you too?
JVdrag0nette on February 20th, 2007 01:14 pm (UTC)
traveling alone. luggage was 22.5kg coming here. :) excluding the super-heavy hand-carry of course. ;)
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 01:16 pm (UTC)
mm try unaccompanied baggage.

i THINK qantas is 25kg check-in luggage per traveller. but i might be wrong.
JVdrag0nette on February 20th, 2007 01:17 pm (UTC)
it's 20kg.

will check out the unaccompanied luggage but i doubt it will be cheaper than jetta express.
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 01:18 pm (UTC)
oops. 20 now? lousy qantas.

ok doksss. :)
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 01:07 pm (UTC)
i just realised, no handle to hold the muggies?

had read alot of bad reviews about the one in esplanade. uh ohs.
JVdrag0nette on February 20th, 2007 01:09 pm (UTC)
no, it's a 'hugmug'. you're supposed to hug it with your hands.

i suppose if you're buying mugs from them, it doesn't matter if their service/beverages/chocolates suck? :)
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 01:10 pm (UTC)
ahhh interesting. though im scared of scorching my hands. :P

yeaps true. okaysss i'll go check with them! :)
JVdrag0nette on February 20th, 2007 01:13 pm (UTC)
that's why i'm not sure if you'll actually use a mug like that in singapore. it works well in cold places... unless you're in super-cold air-con!
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 01:14 pm (UTC)
prolly not for very hot stuffs like hot choco or hot tea i guess...
vanessafridavanessafrida on February 20th, 2007 01:01 pm (UTC)
love the mug!! babe! help me check how much they cost can? your mug
JVdrag0nette on February 20th, 2007 01:02 pm (UTC)

vanessafridavanessafrida on February 20th, 2007 01:07 pm (UTC)

Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on February 20th, 2007 01:04 pm (UTC)

Ok Max Brenner's when I'm in Singsing ;) Had wanted to try ages ago but chickened out.

I'm more of a Koko Black fan though, especially their dark chocolate variety *dribbles dribbles*
JVdrag0nette on February 21st, 2007 01:13 pm (UTC)
hmmm... tiffany says she's heard bad reviews about them in singapore. i'll ask around for any further back-up on this.
