Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, jagung, which was your fave? :D

4. Some of us would get a mix of all flavours, while others always request for one specific flavour oni, hehe. Which one were you?

5. Debating whether to spend RM0.50 sen on one scoop or RM1 on a double scoop was the greatest dilemma of all time

6. Or if you're feeling particularly baller, you get the RM1.50 triple scoop or roti ais krim YAAAASSS <3

7. And if you're REALLY REALLY baller, you get something that comes in a packet fuyoohhhh!
