I went up the stairs of a shop lot somewhere in TTDI, in hopes to do threading which is most likely the only single girly-pampering thing that I do, and only to be met with a locked gate. Then it hit me, a distant memory of the last round I was there, the lady mentioned that they would be shifting, but for me the life of me I could not remember where she said exactly but it is suppose to be somewhere in vicinity of TTDI. So I walked down and head directly across the road with a spring in my step. How come? Because I am heading towards dessert that would at least dampen the disappointment in my heart.
3 minutes earlier
I was driving slowly passing through the road where the TTDI pasar (market) stalls had started their business really early of the day, it was barely evening yet. I was looking left and right, trying to keep myself entertained while I crawled across the street, maneuvering skilfully around the flocks of people that were walking around mindlessly. Then suddenly a bright little shop caught my eye and my heart leap to my throat, Tutti Frutti! There was a sudden flashback.
Few weeks earlier
I scroll through the post about Tutti Frutti in TTDi at masak-masak and think to myself, finally a frozen yogurt chain in Malaysia (again?). This shop is at least somewhere I can relate to and might be able to go when there is a chance. So I happily note it down in my tham jiak memory, salivating at the thought but right after forgot about it as usual. I actually do have an extremely long list of food to try in this part of the memory.
Back to the Moment
Apprehensively I push open the glass door, to be greeted by a clean white interior and few industrial looking silver ‘machines’ and a counter embedded with containers that holds many goodies and delights. So I walked over, looked at the available toppings, zooming in straight on M&M lookalikes and then a lady came over to greet me and sort of explain to me shyly while I listen shyly so you see, so I was even more apprehensive when I approach the huge industrial frozen yogurt dispenser. I pick up the paper cup in oppose to the plastic one because partly because of the cute red printing but mainly it is because it is much bigger. Bigger cup more yogurt! So firstly I pull the lever, too soft and the shy lady ask me to pull harder, so I did and to my delight it start squirting out McD ice cream look alike, and being first time I sort of stopped too late and got huge amount of the original flavour. Oh yes, I picked that besides the choices of probably 6/8, flavours few that I can remember are original, chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and kiwi. Naturally I picked chocolate (my favourite!) for the next flavour, you can mix as many as you like as they charge by weight, so less chocolate this time as I got better control of the machine, and then head on to the toppings counter. Next I pop in M&M’s lookalikes and some mini versions of Coco Pops, ah I should have made this a chocolate indulgence but oh well. Then I placed it less apprehensively onto the weighing scale by the cashier and was guessing the price in my mind when I was told – RM12.50! (priced at RM5.30/100 grams)
And oh boy, the chocolate was oh-so-good, chocolatey, creamy and smooth; you would not believe you are eating yogurt (healthy one at it)! And not to mention my chocolate toppings! But the original though was bit disappointing, not as smooth, sort of tangy, it was good but not addictive enough. I wished I had more of the chocolate and less of this, but I may be biased here, I am a chocoholic. Though I must say the selections of topping is quite limited and unappealing, especially the ‘fruits’ one as it is mainly cocktail look alike, and the gummy bears do look less fresh and sticking to each other. I might give this outlet another chance again even though the price is a bit steep, if not for the toppings then definitely for the chocolate yogurt! Of course the sort of M&M’s and mini coco pops are also good sinful additions that calls for me!
