Fresh sugar cane juice

When the weather is hot and muggy, it is always nice to have a cold and refreshing drink. I was in Flemington this morning and as I was walking up the shops, I suddenly had a desire to have some fresh sugar cane juice for lunch.

When I was living in Malaysia 'way back when', freshly squeezed sugar cane juice was usually bought in a plastic bag with a string of raffia tied around it. But how times have changed. To my surprise, the sugar cane was put through the machine and the end result was a sealed plastic cup filled with the juice and ice cubes. The lady only had to put the cane through the machine, the rest was all done by technology. I was so pleasantly surprised!

Since I had not ordered sugar cane juice in goodness knows how long, I obviously was not aware of this new machine that package the drinks on the spot. How cool! Now I know how the drinks we had at Ms Gs were packaged (see Ms Gs).

I must say it was a good choice...I thoroughly enjoyed the ice cold drink.

Yes, they still make sugar cane juice on the roadside in Malaysian towns and cities, just as you remebered it. Soemhow, the taste can be so different, maybe sharper, fresher and moe natural.
