3. Visit Softsrve to try the exclusive Banana Milk Soft Serve flavour, till 21 October 

One of our favourite soft serve ice cream parlours has teamed up with other likeminded Malaysian brands for a Merdeka/Malaysia Day collaboration. On Softsrve's end, they have launched a new limited edition Banana Milk soft serve flavour that can be coupled with your favourite toppings, including a brand new Banana Republic completed with chocolate crumble and caramel sauce. 


While the ice cream will be happily deposited into your stomach, there's one lil souvenir you can still attain - a special tee and pin design inspired by the flavour that is launched by Third Culture and Pantun Pin.
