Ooo...this is good enough to make me salivate. Btw, have you tried the local lime-lemon before. It smells so gorgeous. It's between the flavour of lime & lemon and it's larger than the limau nipis. Local product! I think you only can get those at the local wet market.
Good night.

Looks so refreshingly delicious! Wish I could have a tall glass right now, it is extremely hot now, even though it's already 11.00pm!
About the Creme Brulee, I use brandy as I did not have Kirsch, but I have seen it at Giant Supermarket quite sometime ago, at the corner where they sell only liquors. It is very expensive! Hope to see you soon with your Creme Brulee!
Have a lovely weekend!

Sonia,
Do you use a small/big can of lychee? or what's the weight of the can of lychee you used? Thanks.

Jaynelle

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Jaynelle, So far I only saw one standard size of canned lychee syrup. I can not tell you the weight right now as I don't have one in my pantry .. Anyway, I bought this syrup from Tesco.

Anonymous said...

Thanks Sonia for your reply. I'll try to look for the same brand that you used.
