milchiks on shavuos (a belated apology)

i keep forgetting to apologize to the hamster (lamah lo) that asked me, about two months ago, to post the kabbalistic/chassidic reason as to why we eat milchiks on Shavuos. and since im a verbatim freak--"someone just told me a Kabbala/Chassidus reason for milchigs on Shavuot. Forgot it. Looking for it badly... if you were to post the Q or better the A as something that's been bugging you for years... I wouldn't complain a whole bunch. (It HAS bothered you, hasn't it?)"

err it hasn't but i'll post it nonetheless
