It was raining heavily outside and slightly cold. After a few sips suddenly an idea came to me to create a 30 seconds video about the drink I am addicted to. Yes, it is an addiction. Just like those who cannot live a day without their coffee! MILO is another Malaysian favourite chocolate drink apart from kopi-O or teh tarik. Milo is a Nestle's product and invented by Thomas Mayne in Sydney, Australia in 1934.
Milo is undeniably relevant to Malaysians that the drink is mentioned in a poem written by a well-known Malaysian poet. Revered in a poem called Monsoon History by Shirley Geok-lin Lim. Her poem used to be part of the Form 4 Literature Component.
Milo is commonly served hot or cold. Either way it is heaven to me. Sometimes I wonder how many more generations will Milo held its glorious stature among us. Will it last as long as Coca Cola? Or longer?
