Hola from the historical state of Malaysia - Malacca! It's been a year since I last visited this beautiful city and honestly, I really love city by the sea because it gives a total different vibe than Kuala Lumpur and one of my wish is that I can move to cities like Malacca or Penang. Isn't it cool that beaches are just 30 minutes drive away?

Me, Cinda and Ivy planned an impromptu one day trip to Malacca because we never traveled together before I think it's best if we start with a day trip and the trip gets more fun when you travel with funny people that you love to hang out with! We stopped by so many stalls and restaurants selling different food on that day that I lost count what we've eaten! Malacca is really a nightmare if you're trying to diet but no, diet ain't one of my life goal!

Although I'm not a big fan of diet, but I do look into what I eat or drink. I try to cut down on processed food and aim for natural ingredients as much as possible. Hence our local "tour guide" Cinda (she's originally from Malacca) brought us to Kota Laksamana when she ask us: do you girls wanna get some bubble milk tea? Malacca recently has this instagrammable place and there's newly opened I'Milky! 

If you don't ask, the answer is always gonna be yes.
Only apply to bubble milk tea drinking.

And I was like: "I'Milky? Isn't that the famous Taiwanese bubble milk tea brand?"

And hereby I conclude:
we really are lolololol.

And seriously, Kota Laksamana area is such an instagrammable place! Imagine you get to pose with your beloved bubble milk tea and show it off to your friends and family! Hahahahaha. That's what we're doing that afternoon - sipping bubble milk tea from I'Milky, took tons of photos and enjoying our sweet lil happiness together!

Did I tell you that I find that calcium in my body seems increased after I got my weekly brown sugar bubble milk fix? It's true! My nails used to be very fragile and easily break even though I had gel manicures on. It's been bothering me since I'm young that I have fragile nails because I can never keep beautiful, long nails. But it seems this issue has solved since I started drinking brown sugar bubble milk! Maybe this is one of the benefit I get from binge drinking bubble milk tea hahahaha.

So, of all the bubble milk tea chain stores, why I'Milky? I asked Cinda. As far as I know, Cinda took care of her health in a serious matter and you have no idea all the nutritious food she consumed on daily basis. In my opinion, she doesn't look like a bubble milk tea person as I am. She told me that I'Milky is so different than other brands as they uses 100% natural ingredients when handcrafting each and every cup of beverages. 

I'Milky was established in Taiwan since 2017 and it's main goal is to serve natural and healthy drinks to bubble milk tea lovers all around the world. Without any artificial flavourings, colourings and ingredients, each and every cup of beverage from I'Milky are made of:
  • High quality imported fresh milk from Australia
  • Non Genetically Modified soybeans 
  • Non concentrated brown sugar, ginger, longan and grapefruit sources
  • Uses only pure and natural honey 
  • Uses Taiwan fresh fruits

When watching the well-trained staff handcrafting our beverages, it looks super easy that it only need 3 steps to complete the whole process:
  1. Put it the grained/prepared ingredients
  2. Pour in the milk
  3. Seal
Voila! A cup of fresh, natural handcrafted without any additional flavours or colourings is ready to be serve!

Taro cubes spotted!!!

3 of us tried the "SUPERSTARS" of I'Milky which are top 5 most ordered beverages according to the  staff, seriously no joke, I noticed all the walk in customers are ordering these few flavours when we're taking photos around the shop with our drinks. The TOP FIVE most ordered beverages are:

Brown Sugar Bubble Milk

"My blood and flesh are made of brown sugar pearls and milk"

The mother of handcrafted Taiwan beverage are definitely gonna be Brown Sugar Bubble Milk! Why would anyone have second thought aside from this drink? That moment when I had my first sip from this brown sugar bubble milk I feel like I'm the happiest girl at Kota Laksamana! The smooth, fresh milk perfectly balanced the taste of natural brown sugar, and also I can't forget them chewy pearls that satisfy my chewing needs too!

Matcha Milk

Being one of the country that produce high quality teas ourselves has very well indicate our love for tea. Although not as crazy as the British, but we do drink a lot of tea on daily basis. The aromatic Taiwanese tea as equally as famous and you will get to try original tea from Taiwan at I'Milky too if you were to order their tea series. A good choice during sunny afternoon or after a heavy milk to quench your thirst for a not-so-heavy version of bubble milk!

On the other side, the Matcha Milk which made from premium-grade Matcha Powder from Shizuoka are definitely for Matcha lovers! The balanced taste between this fine matcha and milk, the bittersweet in life are well expressed in this cuppa!


The taste of summer lingers in my mouth

Serve only icy cold, this Strawberry milk is one of my favourite drink during sunny afternoon! It's my antidote for hot summer days and as you know, Malaysia is famous for it's scorching hot weather. While the milk has become the base for this drink , each and every sip from it got me tasting the sweet, sweet Taiwan strawberry! Did you know Taiwan produces a lot of fruits as well? Neither do I! But this icy cold summer beverage got me anticipating in eating real Taiwan produced fruits! 


How is it I haven't taste you in my life?
Taro, which is the Japanese pronunciation for yam, has got me cravings for all its products in recent years. From Chinese food to ice creams, whenever there's yam flavoured, I want it. 

This cup of Taro Milk had three of us fighting for it (as we only ordered 1 flavour each), and we all agreed that this drink taste so good with all the freshly mashed yam! When mixed well, each and every sip from this cup of Taro Milk sends those fresh Taro granules right into your mouth then filled your tummy with its yummy taste! Gosh I want another cup of this right now!!!!

What's better than sharing the flavour of happiness with people you cherish?

Aside from their freshly handcrafted beverages, I enjoyed hanging out around I'Milky's shop as they have bright and spacious interior which is perfect for taking any instagrammable/memorable photos with people you visit I'Milky with!

Such minimalist feel! No wonder Cinda would recommend I'Milky to us because she knows I'm a huge fan of minimalist interior design as well!

non-stop photo taking during our 2 hours yumcha session at I'Milky!

This Malacca day trip thingy is such an amazing experience to me because aside from eating our heart outs, we get to take tons of memorable photos, create memories together as well as knowing what's best for our bubble milk tea taste buds! Those who are living/visiting Malacca, make sure you know where to get you daily dosage of happiness from!
