Ahhh….what we have here now? Yup, it is yet another milk review. You would never expect someone to go around and start reviewing milk. I bet you are thinking that this must be the most boring thing to do in the world. Well, yes it is but since I doubt anyone would be willing to do that except the aunties (which I don’t think most of them will blog), I will sacrifice my time to review milk. And anyway, I am not reviewing the milk. More like showing you guys the pictures of the packet milk available in Singapore.

And as you guys should know by now, I don’t drink milk. I use the milk to make Kefir. For more information on Kefir, I would suggest you to visit Dom’s Kefir Site. That guy is a Kefir nut and we Kefir drinkers love him deep deep. And I am sure if he doesn’t look like a greek, he would be stalked on the Internet everyday. Of course milk Kefir would be better if made from fresh milk instead of UHT milk. But for someone like me who has to juggle work and 10 illegitimate children, we don’t have much choice in the matter. It is not like I can visit the supermarket everyday to buy milk right?

Anyway, for this review, it would be the F&N Daisy UHT Milk. Why Daisy? I have absolutely no idea. Perhaps it sounds nice or perhaps the F&N naming department love Diasies? Well, if it is milk and drinkable without any poision in it, I guess we should be already glad.

UHT Fresh Milk! And just look at the milk being poured into the glass!

Quite an okay packaging. It is not like I am always aiming for a milk that comes in an attractive packaging. It is the cost that matters most to me. But good looking packaging is important if you are stuck in a shelf full of other brands of milk. In the NTUC nearby, there are about nearly half a row of UHT milk for you to choose from and the brand need to stand out for Singaporeans to buy. Yup, we have been hearing the government telling you guys to go and buy “no-frills” housebrands, but come on, they are not always the cheapest.

Yes, this 1 litre of UHT milk is manufactured in New Zealand! Great!  I love to drink milk from cows in New Zealand.

Yes, just fresh milk. However, this has been heat treated so that it can last for a long long time. I have seen nearly 1 year expiry dates for UHT milk! God, they last longer than some of the staff in my office.

See, it is due in  10th September 2009!  Notice that there is a blank space on the right. And nothing that there is no easy open cover as well. Stupid F&N. Now I will have to get a scissors and cut a opening to pour the milk out. Plus, I am sure I won’t be able to finish 1 litre of milk in one go, so how the hell will I be able to properly close that opening? Some things people will do to safe a few cents….
