My Prosperity Meal


When I was a student many years ago, I used to love McDonald's Prosperity Burger and Twister Fries. This burger is only available in conjunction with Chinese New Year.

So every year when this burger makes its appearance, I would be sure to make my way to McD's to enjoy the burger.

Then when I started working, I stopped eating McDonald's burgers. Not because I was health conscious but because the McDonald's at Uptown 5 moved. Bah!

So that ended my annual Prosperity Burger indulgence. Until one day recently when my partner picked me up from a seminar. I was hungry and I told him I wanted McD's. My partner does not approve of fast foods but he is very indulgent when it comes to his madam (or else I would beat him up, or so he claims).


So. Like a very happy child, I got my wish. My partner took a long sip of my drink before he went off to do whatever it was he had to do.


Ahh....sweet memories are made of these....


I love these fries!


Looking forwards to the burger.


Mmmmm.....


This was supposed to be the Golden Prosperity Burger which comes with Crispy Golden Hash Browns. But no. There was none in my burger. So I think the complaints about the McD's drive thru at Centrepoint Bandar Utama has some truth in it.

  1. I tried once many years ago at their outlet at KLIA and I did not like it, not a fan of black pepper sauce, that's why...and no, despite eating that, I did not prosper. Bet McD does every Chinese New Year! LOL!!!

  2. Yes, I would not miss this once a year too...but this year I didn't have any. Not because I was health conscious (hey, once a year is ok!) but because I was unwell before CNY. I have to say McD's black pepper sure got oomph...so much oomph that first thing I do when I open up the burger is to scrape off some of the black pepper....phew, burger on fire!! :D

  3. Whoa!!! You so ganas and could beat up your partner! Or you actually spanked him lightly with a belt during...... ahem!
    I also love prosperity burgers and good thing they don't sell it whole year. My wife ate it once and had sore throat right away cos the black pepper made her spit out flames! Muahahaha
    That drive through at McD's centrepoint affects me often as they blocked the traffic and their slow services were to be blamed. Whenever they had gila Hello Kitty mania, I could faint as the cars queued until the traffic lights near 1-U!! Siao lang!

    1. Yeah, but it is quite troublesome to complain unless if done on the spot to show them proof.

  6. I did not want the hash brown so I just paid the lower price set for a normal prosperity burger with twisted fries. I don't like black pepper sauce but for cny prosperity burger which is once a year I will make an exception but will scrap off as much gravy as I can from the patty before eating it.

  9. u must be a fierce person, lol! ok, so next time no more 'golden' burger after this incident.
    *there is nothing special about that golden thingy, it's just a hashbrown where the taste is overpowered by the sauce, waste my money also!
