Now that I have your attention, let me explain. While we were in Kuala Lumpur, we were wandering around and noticed a soy milk stall that seemed to be pretty popular. Jenkins and I had some delicious soy milk in Singapore so we were looking forward to checking out what Kuala Lumpur (KL) had to offer.
Since it was stifling hot in KL, we ordered a cold soy drink and the vendor asked if we wanted some grass jelly in our soy milk. He assured us that it was a popular option so we decided to give it a try since it only cost about $0.15 CAD extra. After I came back to Vancouver, I found out that this is a pretty popular drink in Malaysia and I suppose due to its colour, Penang vendors started calling it the Michael Jackson, after his Black or White song. And there you have it…Michael Jackson in Kuala Lumpur. I should note that this drink was as tasty as promised and is actually quite easy to make at home. All you need is some sweetened soy milk and a can of grass jelly!
