WE'VE CHANGED THE GAME
Every Thursday we ask our Brain Game contestants one interesting, thought-provoking or just plain quirky question. Their answers will be published ANONYMOUSLY in Young Post. Then readers can vote for their FAVOURITE answer. We will eliminate the contestant with the LEAST votes every week until we have a winner.
The ultimate Brain Game winner will receive a set of six one-day adult tickets to Hong Kong Disneyland, worth more than HK$2,000.
Which answer do you like BEST? Vote below.
This round we asked: What is your fantasy ice cream flavour?
It's Rainbow Mango Pandan - a new version of the creamy Filipino dessert, buko pandan, made of fresh coconut and condensed milk, with the pandan flavour. For Mango Pandan, I would replace the coconut with mango. Mouthwatering? Add the colours of the rainbow, and voila! A definite dream come true.
There's nothing better than an already-prepared ice cream sundae. Do you ever have those moments where you crave a sundae, and all you want to do is walk to your freezer and just take one out? (Instead of having to create one from scratch using 10 ingredients.) A ready-made ice cream sundae would be the perfect solution!
Little Green Men ... yummy! This refers to Toy Story's Little Green Men alien characters. I've got a Little Green Men pen, a Little Green Men file, a Little Green Men diary, and a Little Green Men figure. What I don't have is Little Green Men flavour! Its taste must be unique and delicious, and stay in my mind for a long time - just like the impression the Little Green Men made on me!
My fantasy flavour would be char siu (barbecued Chinese pork). Ice cream has always been something of a Western delicacy. It would be nice if it were infused with a Chinese element. Tasting frozen barbecued pork would be something special. Wouldn't it be nice to lick a soft ice cream with crispy pork in it? It would surely be a lip-smacking gastronomic delight!
My ultimate ice cream flavour would be egg waffle. Egg waffle, or gai dan jaai, is one of Hong Kong's famous street snacks. Hong Kong is known to be a "Gourmet Paradise", so it'd be great if there was an ice cream flavour dedicated to the city. The taste of the egg, with rich butter, would leave customers scrambling for more. Caramel could be added as a topping to enhance the flavour.
Hong Kong is a city with lots of variety, and it suits well-rounded citizens with a taste for anything and everything! My fantasy ice cream flavour would therefore combine the four flavours of life - sour orange, spicy chips, bitter balsam pear and sweet candy.
It would be wonderful to have a bitter-sweet ice cream flavour. Its name? "Life." Just like our lives, it would be full of joy and sadness. It would remind people that life is spectacular, and not just a plain, bland vanilla.
There are so many people in Hong Kong who love Italian cuisine. I am one of them. I have always dreamed of pasta-, pizza- and lasagna-flavoured ice cream, all thrown into one. My fantasy ice cream flavour would be called "Lapapi"! I am sure just the name and a colourful vision of that ice-cream has already made your mouth water!
