    According to Hoa, this moment may actually last a lifetime! But no complaints - she's petite, but possesses all that exquisite species (or in this case, primary) charm!

    Thank you, popcorn munchers!

    We'll be offering Penang Girl sorbet, but the order time for a cone is 18 years, and we can only take 5 customers per century!

    Oh dear are we veering into X-rated topics again? Tind-O, don't you know that kind of ice cream is made from certain underground part of the orchid plant, which happens to mean certain parts of the male anatomy? Ewwww! BTW, I also heard it is utterly delicious!

    Actually, it was of the male fox's anatomy, as I recall. And yes, Tindo, they thought that too...

    Read Orchid Fever if you want the whole scoop. So to speak...
