It's Time to Prosper

Let's take a short break from the "Temple Talk". Yeah, it is the time of the year again. ~ the time to prosper, since McD prosperity meal and prosperity burger is available in town (which means... Chinese New Year is around the corner). McD is the only one who will prosper in term of monetary gain. :P

This year, McD substitute the Orange McFizz with Jasmine Green Tea. Luckily my favourite crispy Twister Fries is still available. I didn't take photo for the green tea and twister fries coz too busy eating :P

My beloved Prosperity Beef Burger. And up to this day (after so many years), I still don't understand why prosperity beef burger is not available in Sarawak. Sarawak only has the chicken kokokai version, which is not so tasty. Why ah? Why Why Tell Me Why ?? That is just a side ramblings as I can still happily munching my prosperity beef burger in Penang. LOL

Maybe Sarawakians prefer kokokai. :p

Fyi, I've never had a prosperity burger. Maybe that explains my poverty. :p

Furkids in Hong Kong said...

We don't get any of the things you mentioned here in HK :(

Send me a bite please.

fibrate said...

Now that you pointed it out...I don't remember having beef prosperity burgers ever in Kuching. Why?

Chev said...

jemima,
Hehehe, i asked many of my friends in Sarawak in the past. They prefer the beef prosperity burger instead.

Why u never have prosperity burger? U don't love burger or u don't fancy fast food?

furkids,
I see. If i didn't remember wrongly, prosperity burger is not available in Singapore too. Is it only exclusive in Malaysia? We only have it once a year, around CNY time :)

fibrate,
If i didn't remember wrongly, the prosperity beef burger was available in Sarawak many years back. But they stopped it and over the last few years, only the chicken prosperity burger is available in the Land of Hornbills. Dunno why loh.. A Big Question Mark :)

Doreen said...

Prosperity burger, only heard of it, and now seen it but have never tasted it. Really nice? Does that mean whoever eat this prosperity burger would have a prosperous year? I want to eat also leh.

I've only had two or three Prosperity Burgers from McD's in my life, but I will forever remember them with much fondness, much like how I remember Yee Sang. Those were the few years I got a chance to come back to Malaysia for two months in Jan..

Chev said...

rinnah said...

Time for me to head down to McD's for my yearly dose of Prosperity Burger! Hehehe.

Chev said...

misti,
That's great. I love the spicy black pepper sauce. The more the better (cos i love spicy stuff). LOL

Gotta apply more koyok for your backache? Might be shoulder and back massage session will help. I go for shoulder massage session regularly too.

Rinnah,
Hehehhe, this prosperity burger is one of the "must eat" stuff since it's only available once a year. LOL. I will go for my "second dose" too. Might be in two weeks time?

pelfy said...

My sister loves prosperity burger, I like the side dish. hehehe (= That's why we only order one set. haahaa

Chev said...

pink cotton,
u should write in their suggestion box that u all wants Beef Prosperity Burger! Else McD won't know mah :)

jun,
I didn't try the red bean sundae nor mcflurry. Only order the standard prosperity meal set. I'm not a big eater and I even have difficulty to finish the standard meal set ;)

pelfy,
Hahahha, that's great. Sharing the prosperity set and each one get to eat their favourite food. I love the curly twister fries too ;)

Kristopher said...

WOW!!! i really need to update myself. Prosperity meal is back? i hope it will not be the chicken version. :)

I prefer the lamb Prosperity burger.

Giddy Tiger said...

I actually prefer the samurai burger which they don't have anymore. but if I see someone ordering truckloads of prosperity burgers in any Penang Mc-D's I'll be sure to come up and say hi! Oh yeah, forgot to tell you...I tagged you here!

Chev said...

slurp,
No woh, I seldom or hardly read novels nor watch DVD/movies ;).

Don't worry. I seldom visit those fast food outlets. Only once in few months, except during CNY (cos of the prosperity burger and twister fries) :D

wenn,
Prosperity burger is not available at your place, right? A virtual prosperity burger for u then :P

Gong Xi Gong Xi

yenjai,
It's up to individual. Some cannot take the spicy black pepper sauce, but I love it. Do get yourself a prosperity burger from the nearest McD outlet. I'm sure u will love it, unless if u don't take spicy food lah :D

Chev said...

winn,
Shhhhhhhhh..
Don't say out so loud.
I feed him something else instead.
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....

papercrazy,
Yeah, Sarawak (still) don't have prosperity beef burger this year, only the prosperity chicken burger. That is what I saw from the printed leaflet in McD.

Psss.. file in a complaint in the McD comment box lah, saying u all want prosperity beef burger.

eve,
Aiyak, u r the only one here who doesn't like the burger. Kkkkkk..
The outstanding one ;) Never mind, u can give me your share next time. I will sapu the burger :D

Chev said...

blur angel,
Time to get one, before the "prosperity meal period" ends. One more month to go. I will have another set of prosperity meal in a week or two's time too. LOL

kristopher,
Yeah, prosperity meal (beef) is back since 27th December in Peninsular. The chicken prosperity burger will only be out somewhere mid of January. Can't remember the exact date. Only the chicken version is available in Sarawak.

Err.. where u eat the lamb prosperity burger ah?

giddy tiger,
Samurai Burger? I think i never eat that before. The name sounds good. LOL

Hahhaa, I won't buy truckloads of burger leh. One is more than enough per meal ;)

Thanks for the tag. But err.. I never made any new year resolutions woh.. Will come up with one then, just for the tag. LOL

Mr. Goober said...

cause our cow's population is lesser??

a^ben said...

cos the cows in sarawak all kidnapped by the cow vendor in PENANG lor~~~ ahemz :X ahahahahahhahahahahah

Wyn said...

Yumm Yumm, prosperity burger`s back!!!

but the kokokai version only start`s on the 14th of Jan...

Chev said...

goober,
Lesser cow population ah? Is it that all the cows were shooed off by the yakking peanut? LOL

ben,
Ahem. Cow vendor pulak?
Hhahahahhah. I only have Moo Moo toys and figurines leh :P

wyn,
u dun take beef too?
but at least at the moment u can taste the crispy twister fries while waiting for the availability of the kokokai prosperity burger :)

carcar said...

eh? bila ada ini post? i thought i monitor yr blog daily? kekeke...

the prosperity burger tv advertisement in singapore is a long... heart warming, family re-union type of setting.

is a good one i would say.

*but who will eat mcD as re-union dinner?*

Chev said...

carcar,
Ini post ada sejak pukul 12:15 pm semalam. LOL

Eating McD for reunion dinner?
Huh? Err.. Really sounds so Not Right. The only person who will eat McD on CNY eve is those who doesn't get to balik kampung for reunion dinner, huh? ;)

How come i never see any McD prosperity meal advertisement on tv geh? I know why liao.. cos i seldom watch tv :P

Adino said...

I love prosperity burgers! But I preferred the Orange Fizz. I'm not sure if I'll enjoy green tea, but I can't wait to try the red bean sundae.

Kristopher said...

Chen, I had the Lamb version at KL Sentral last year. :)

Chev said...

adino,
The green tea is just as the packet drinks green tea, nothing special though, but it's more healthy ;)

Might be I will go for my second servings of prosperity meal (beef burger, of course) next week. Hahhahah.. since i only get to eat it once a year, so must get hold of the chance.

kristopher,
I see. I never know there is a lamb version of the prosperity burger :)

Will said...

maybe because not selling well in sarawak (maybe sarawakians don't eat much beef) :P

Chev said...

will,
hehehe, i don't think so leh.
My Sarawakians friends and those Sarawakians bloggers that I know of mostly prefer the prosperity beef burger more than the prosperity chicken burger :)
