Bandung

This is slowly being forgotten and washed away from the childhood’s of little kids here in Singapore. When I was young enough to barely peep over the kitchen counter, this pink drink rocked my world. It’s called Bandung, pronounced as bahn-doong, not band-dung. I emphasis on how to say it right, but I’ve no idea what that word means, or what language it is either. I just know it’s happiness in a cup. So easy to make, so cheap, and yet incredibly satisfying. Especially since this sunny island never enjoys temperatures lower than 20ªC, you can savour this beverage all year round!

  • 3 tbsp rose syrup
  • 200ml water
  • 4 tbsp fresh milk
  • 5 cubes of ice
  1. Put the syrup in the glass first, then add water. Have a taste, to see if it’s sweet enough or too sweet for you. Tweak it accordingly with more rose syrup or more water. TIP! It should be slightly sweeter since you’re gonna be adding ice.
  2. Now add the ice and add the milk. TIP! Add the milk in small quantities, stopping when you think it’s getting too milky for your liking. Some people I know like their Bandung a sexy pink, as opposed to baby pink.

Happy days, cool afternoons.
