22042016 Gardenia has come to Kuching, so sell all your Gold!

A few monhts ago, for the first time I actually started to stay in Kuching, I was puzzled why there were no bread at the bread section. Heck, there's no bread section neither. Over in West Malaysia, I was used to see the bread section in all Supermarkets and I must say, we were spoilt for choice too. 

But over here, it seems that bread is not as important as I thought. And you need to go to a cake/pastry shop to get your bread which  averages to about RM3.50 per loaf. And if you do go to certain shops, the bread can have corn, pandan, raisin and other flavours too. Heck, who needs Gardenia, right?

The staff and colleagues love it when I went home for the Chinese New Year and brought back loaves of Gardenia's Delicia Butterscotch. Yep, its the Butterscotch which makes them smile. Its strange really, that despite us being Malaysians, there were certain items which never made is across the sea. For example, we have Gardenia and they have Grenadines (which makes me love it more than the common Rose Syrup). We have Mee Maggi Goreng and they have Kolo Mee and Kampua Mee (not Halal if you're asking)


Anyway, the price is a little shocking if you're a Butterscotch addict. You might want to hock off your stuff for more money...

The Staff was stacking the Gardenia shelf with yes, Delicia's Butterscotch!

But before you jump in happiness, look at the price which was more than doubled!
