Craving for more J.Co Donuts

It is a common scenario when you see a J.Co store serving a long queue. In fact, that is the sole reason why I haven't tried this raved about donut in such a long time. Patience is not one of my virtues. But my cousin brought a dozen of J.Co donuts home, and it was the first time to have tried it. Woah! I was so impressed by the play of flavors that I just had to be have the patience to visit a store!

I visited the J.Co branch in SM Megamall. Its location was hard to find. You have to go to Mega B and then, when you see a BDO branch, go out of the air-conditioned mall interior to get there. The place is called "The Strip", as it is lined with various restaurants.

I went there at 11 AM, and the queue was already long! I waited in line trying to keep myself busy by observing the people and the place! But it was the free, yes free, yogurt sample that the J.Co staff gave away which won my patience! Yay! I didn't know they serve yogurt too! It was yummy! Sour, yes, but not too creamy. The chocolate cereal topping added that much loved sweetness.

I finished the yogurt just in time for my turn to order. I chose one of the bestsellers, Alcapone (PhP42), as I wasn't able to try it in my cousin's bunch. But it was still a long way to the payment counter! However, the wonderful view was enough entertainment:

I ordered my Alcapone for dine-in. The place was nice! The play of orange, brown and yellow color of the interior contribute to a relaxing coffee shop atmosphere. Despite the high volume of people coming in, the place was not noisy as I thought it would. 

Now, time to get lost to my Alcapone! Actually, when I was on queue earlier on, I feared that they would run out of this. Almost everyone orders it! Thankfully, the J.Co crew had a lot of refills!

This donut is named Alcapone.
So here is my take on this beloved donut: it is glazed with white Belgian chocolate topped with almonds. The donut texture is very soft, which exaggerates the hardness of the almonds. The glaze is creamy and milky sweet with a hint of caramel. The overall sweetness is just right that I could eat it without the help of water! The flavor doesn't stay long on the tongue so it makes you crave for more! 

Ah yes! Time is definitely faster when you're having fun. I enjoyed eating Alcapone that it was gone in a snap! One is surely not enough. Better get two donuts for dine-in. Else, you would have to go back on queue again! 

Or you could take home the top six bestsellers (PhP230) and enjoy J.Co donuts with your family and friends...

So if before I wondered, why all these J.Co hype? Now it is clearly justified!

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[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
