Does Ronald Know About This??

Walk into McDonald's and order a vanilla milkshake - apparently for the first time in the 2.5 years I've live here.  Here's how that went down:

Worker: Can I help you?
Me: Yes, one vanilla milkshake please
Worker: Chocolate or strawberry?
Me: Er, um, vanilla.
Worker: We don't sell vanilla; just chocolate or strawberry.
Me - sighing dramatically, closing up my wallet and walking out the door.

Can this possibly be true?  McDs doesn't sell vanilla milkshakes?  Isn't there a reason why they're vanilla, a.k.a. the most generic, popular flavor on the planet?! Is it maybe because nothing in Hong Kong makes sense??

Honestly, it's times like these I struggle with reality.  I look around and think, "Really?  This is really the freakin universe I live in?


  1. I can tell ya, that 10 years ago when i came to Hong Kong, they DID have vanilla milkshakes. However I guess around 7 years ago, they simply stopped selling them. And same as you, I am completely puzzled as to why that would be the case.

    We should start a petition or something. :)

  2. Really?!?! wtf?! I'm happy to lead the charge on the petition. Think I'll do a bit of Googling to find out where to begin... :)
