good and bad

BAD:

Mafulat there’s no Vitamin C in Ribena!! Okay maybe some TRACES but definitely not anywhere remotely close to ‘4 times more Vitamin C than oranges’!!

I feel so betrayed…. :(

Not sure if the Malaysian stock has the same case, not that I drank Ribena for its vitamin level, but it felt like one big lie :(

Excuse me while I re-examine my childhood values…

Link and LINK.

UPDATE: Link LINK.

GOOD:

MPH republished Adibah Amin’s As I Was Passing and you can purchase the two-series books in major bookstores or MPH Online.

FYI, Adibah Amin was a reporter/journalist with NST in the 70s, circa Datuk Lat. Her weekly column was titled ‘As I Was Passing’, under the pen name Sri Delima and was published into a book by Berita Publishing.

If you have never read ‘As I Was Passing’, for once trust me and go get them ;)

  1. Phew, luckily I was not a Ribena kaki. Hopefully someone doesn’t discover that Chickadees is bad for the brain! :-P

  2. yeah, fucktard lie to us. Ribena has no Vitamin C is like FUcking without squeezing tits.

    is just not right !

  3. who cares? i only drink it for taste :D

  4. It’s all sugar and flavour … still, we can still get FA to mix it with vodka … right?

  5. You want vitamin-c, might as well go buy redoxon lah. Or just buy vita-c candy.

    Convenient, no need to throw skin away if you makan orange.

  6. Hey.. I just read about this in the newspapers.. A bit late lah .. solly.

    waliau.. wonder if all other food and drinks with claims of vitamin this and that are also bluffin’
    Eg. Milo with Antigen E and all those vitamin B1-12, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Iron and …
    VITAMIN C….

  7. Er don’t confuse the fact that they state blackcurrants have 4 times more vitamin C than oranges…WHICH IS TRUE, they don’t say Ribena has 4 times more vitamin C than orange juice drinks, the amount of vitamic C in Ribena is stated on the pack.

  8. Gallivanter: Chickadees…?

    terenceg: hmm that works…

    ky: yay

    Dabs: indeed

    SF: i am vitamin c intolerant.. bwahaha i just lied :P

    eagle: to be honest, i’d be real interested about milo…

    ST: not confused. they did in a roundabout way state ribena DRINK has etc etc False advertising

  9. yippie.. can buy as i was passing for posterity….

  10. so my childhood is ONE BIG FAT LIE?!?!?

  11. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!1111111111111111oneone

  12. Talk about taste. When Yeos produce peach tea, I don’t bother Ribena (I only drink peach taste ribena). Now you can blame “lean and mean project” failure is due to Ribena ;)

    I must agree Ribena only taste good with vodka. :)

  13. Haha. I felt betrayed by Ribena. And I love it so!!

    Thanks for the heads up on Adibah Amin books on her compilation columns. She’s one of my tuition teacher (Yes, I am one of the dunce that needed tuition) and she’s so sweet and lovely and teaches us oh so clearly and wonderfully on both English and BM. Would be great to read this!

  14. next they will find out there are no sperms in Viagra hahaha!!!

  15. LT: but i think the font not as nice

    S: feel so betrayed, kan? heh

    moo_t: i only resumed drinking ribena at williams. think i stopped at 17 or something

    dils: OOoo i needed tuition also. so lucky you got her, heh I didn’t know Adibah Amin was Sri Delima for years

    suertes: is that the same thing?? lol
