Rock Salt and Cheese

What? Rock salt and cheese? In a drink? 


That was my initial expression when my cousin told me to try out Happy Lemon's specialty. The name itself got me quite intrigued as to how the flavors would complement each other. I doubted whether I should really try it. I am a sweet tooth and the name Rock Salt and Cheese sends 'sour flavor' signals to my brain. 


However, my food lover instincts couldn't just say no. So I headed off to the Happy Lemon branch in TriNoma to satisfy my curiosity. The store is located on the 4th floor near the cinemas. 


There are three variants of Rock Salt and Cheese to choose from: Green Tea, Coffee, and Cocoa. Of course, I ordered Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese. It costs PhP90.  I had to wait a few minutes to get my drink, considering the queue was long. And I have observed how the Happy Lemon crew creatively pour the melted cheese on top of liquid chocolate. Then, they added chocolate powder to garnish it. Yum!
One creative drink.
I excitedly went to a nearby table and tasted this unique drink. The first sip exceeded my expectations! The rock salt and cheese topping was not sour as I thought it would be. It had a gentle saltiness that reminded me of cheesecake. However, I was a bit disappointed with the cocoa as it tasted bland and ordinary. But its one-of-kind combination with the rock salt and cheese gave out a good and satisfying result.  


It was surprising how the flavor complemented each other. I can describe the drink in one sentence: It is comparable to eating a liquid chocolate cheesecake. And I love cheesecakes! Therefore I love Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese!

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
