Asian Drink Special #2

Today we have the Baige Aloe Vera drink. Some of you may cry foul here and say that since I enjoy aloe vera, it's not really a test for a bizarre Asian drink. I am inclined to agree, but the main reason I bought it was the colour of the drink itself. It's this creepy greeny-yellow colour, like someone had pissed straight into the bottle and added aloe vera.



Thankfully it doesn't taste as bad. Not that I know what piss tastes like.

1. Originality - I know for a fact that whenever I have aloe vera (to consume), people who haven't seen me drink it before exclaim "What is THAT?" So I guess if one did not know that there is more to aloe vera than just for health purposes, you'd be pretty surprised too. However, putting the aloe vera in some weird juice concoction gets extra points. Hell, after reading the list of ingredients they put in the drink, I STILL didn't know what I was drinking. [7]
2. Taste - Surprisingly enough, it didn't taste too bad. That being said, I did wince slightly everytime I made a sip. How to describe the taste? It's sort of sour, with this pleasant aftertaste. I have to say though, that it smells a lot better. It smells delightfully fruity. [5]
3. Packaging - The second reason I bought this drink was the delightful bottle it came in. It's pure glass with some fancy print on the front. It is lovely, but it was a real trial trying to get it open. My whole family took turns trying to open it. Buy this drink if you want your family to bond. [6]

4. Price - $3. Seriously, for a crazy drink with even crazier packaging. Though if you ask me, the bottle is worth $3 alone.
5. Other - I spent ages trying to figure out if Baige was an ingredient before realising that it was, in fact, the brand name. Oh, those crazy Asians!

And while I'm at it, Merry Christmas, y'all. Hope you get everything you wanted.

Bev, I LOVE the Asian drink specials. I am serious.

On another note, last night I went to my cousin's place with her sweet-as home theatre system, and we watched the TRANSFORMERS MOVIE. I'm telling you, every time I saw Starscream, I had your voice in my head squealing "STARSCREAM!". Pretty funny. Also, Transformers with surround sound = the most awesome thing I've heard in ages.

MERRY CHRISTMAS BEV. I HOPE YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING THAT WOULD MAKE ME HIT YOU. XD

@Sqwuib

Did you torrent the film or something? Or were you a bookfag and read the book? Because the book made me BAWWWWWWWWW at one point.

And I got dollarz, a Moleskine (fuck yeah), a book that disputes religion and a shirt. My brother still owes me an Xmas present though. SO MAYBE I WILL GET UMBRELLA CHRONICLES!

Now it's your turn to tell me what YOU got, hoe. Because you are never on MSN.
