Breast Milk Ice Cream, Anyone?

This feels so wrong. What do you think?


Taken from Malaysian Digest.

LONDON, 25 FEBRUARY, 2011: A specialist ice cream parlor plans to serve up breast milk ice cream and says people should think of it as an organic, free-range treat, reported Reuters.

The breast milk concoction is called the "Baby Gaga" and will be available from Friday at the Icecreamists restaurant in London's Covent Garden.

According to Reuters Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor was confident his take on the "miracle of motherhood" and priced at a hefty 14 pounds (RM69) a serving will go down a treat with the paying public.

The breast milk was provided by mothers who answered an advertisement on online mothers' forum Mumsnet.

Victoria Hiley, 35, from London was one of 15 women who donated milk to the restaurant after seeing the advert.

Hiley works with women who have problems breast-feeding their babies. She said she believes that if adults realized how tasty breast milk actually is, then new mothers would be more willing to breast-feed their own newborns.

"What could be more natural than fresh, free-range mother's milk in an ice cream? And for me it's a recession beater too – what's the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash," Hiley said in a statement.

"I tried the product for the first time today – it's very nice, it really melts in the mouth."

The Baby Gaga recipe blends breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest, which is then churned into ice cream.

O'Connor said the Baby Gaga was just one of a dozen radical new flavors at the shop.

"Some people will hear about it and go, 'yuck' but actually it's pure, organic, free-range and totally natural," he said.

"I had a Baby Gaga just this morning and I feel great," he added.

Weekend Photos #003

Posting last weekend's photos a day before the new weekend starts. Well, Procrastinator is my middle name.

Subway breakfast meal. Healthier and cheaper than McDonald's!

Didn't want to hear me bebel.

At the clinic while waiting to get his 1st Booster Triple and Polio + Hib jab.

Paid a visit to the newly opened SSTwo Mall. Which is pretty much dead.

They have weekend flea market. Which looked pretty much dead, too. But it is actually a nice mall. I hope more tenants will open up soon.

Currently the best tenant there (well, to me anyway) is none other than Tutti Frutti! They don't have any baby chair at the moment, so I told them that they really should invest in some. They even have a small cosy kids play area, but I totally forgot to take a picture of it because the froyo was demanding for me to eat them.

A lil art time with the boy. Husband and I drew those. Yeah. Okay you can stop laughing now. I just hope the boy will have better drawing skills than his parents when he's older.

Weekend Photos #002

This is what he'll do when we say "Tengok gigi!".

So, Ibu... What do you want to eat??

Black Canyon Restaurant at Centerpoint, Bandar Utama. The food is quite good and prices are reasonable. I personally enjoy the tomyam. Another place that has good tomyam is at Jemari Restaurant in Dataran Glomac Kelana Jaya.

Before: Mengamuk nak iPod. After: Muka puas hati dapat iPod.

Really gotta learn to be more rajin to get the camera out of the bag and snap more photos.

Budak buas suka mengamuk.

I am currently facing a couple of... challenges with my 20 months old toddler. First of, he's refusing to sleep in his own cot. He was fine before until recently. One minute he is fast asleep on our bed, and as soon as we transfer him to his cot, he wakes up and starts crying. We pick him up, dodoi him, and put him back in the cot. Then he wakes up crying again. Repeat cycle until we give up and let him sleep on our bed. How to have sexy time lah like this?!

The second challenge is getting him to nap/ sleep without having to 'bergantung' to the boob-juice machine. Unless he is with someone else, like my MIL for example. In that case he'll happily drink from the bottle and go to sleep fuss-free.

So, how now brown cow? How do I tackle these challenges?

Weekend Photos #001

I've been meaning to record my weekends in photos, but did not have the discipline to do so. Always been too lazy to take out the camera from the handbag. Either that or I always forget. But usually it's the latter, heh.

At One Utama. See that man trying to balance the huge ass pole using his mouth? Not really doing a good job at it.

Turns out my lip gloss is the preferred teething object for the boy.

Abaikan the vegetables. I wanted to take the photo of the maid in purple. Husband and I were feeling so sorry for her because she was there with her employer, who were happily eating and drinking while she just sat there with no food nor drink. All she did was helped to feed the little girl, looking all miserable. Now, I'm beginning to notice this trend. Why do some people don't buy their maids something to eat when they're out? Kesian tau.

Chicken Teppanyaki. Hated taugeh with a vengeance before I met my husband 11 years ago. The husband on the other hand is a hantu taugeh. He's in love with everything taugeh. Okay fine I'm exaggerating, but you get my point.

Had our date night and watched The Green Hornet. That was our second time watching a 3D movie. We're noobs like that. Sat two rows from the screen, but the movie was so good that we barely notice the neck pain and the crossed eyes.

Kasi chance makan Tutti Frutti. Tak padan dengan kecik.

Wait, that's it?! I could have sworn I snapped more photos. Oh well.
