Joy killer

More and more China-made dairy products found tainted with melamine have been yanked off supermarket shelves. Every new day, a new list is announced. From frozen yoghurt to our favourite milk candy, the list is expanding. We never quite know if some toxic milk or butter have found their way into cakes and bread churned out by our local confectionaries as officials are scrambling to check the origins of thousands of food products.

As I was eating Dreyers strawberrry ice cream last night, I discovered it's made in Hong Kong which relies heavily on raw materials from China. Suddenly the ice cream doesn't taste so good anymore.

A lot of it is just paranoia though. I just eat what I want. The trace amounts of melamine won't hurt an adult through occasional consumption.

Give me the rest of your ice cream!

I just threw away a few things I had in the fridge that were from China. As much as Charlie Hotel says it's just paranoia, I'm just being safe for the sake of my two boys who eats all kinds of stuff ...

I know consuming small quantities is not detrimental to our health but it's just that feeling when you're eating it....

Yeah, once you're suspicious of the content of something you're eating, then you can't enjoy eating it anymore.
