[Review] Bono Artisanal Gelato

Dieting cannot stop me from eating my favorites! I absolutely love food. I adore it much more than shoes and bags. However, being on a diet program does make me aware of the food I eat. It helps me make choices on what to eat or avoid. 

Me? Oh I am a kid at heart and I love ice cream. Roaming around the metro, I found Bono Artisanal Gelato. I know gelatos are healthier versions of ice cream as it has less air and fat. However, the price is more expensive than what your PhP20 can buy. 

I found Bono Artisanal Gelato branch in SM Makati. The store is located on the third floor near the bridgeway to Glorietta. The place is so creatively designed and well lit. The wallpapers were cute and informative. They told of how gelato is healthy and some numbers to support it. Cool. 

The staff were very friendly too. I was in the queue and they happily asked my order. Unlike other gelato parlors, you can’t see the gelato on display. Theirs is sealed in a special refrigerator (called Pozatto cabinets) to ensure that the gelato is kept chilled and fresh at constant temperature. Since I couldn’t see it, there wasn’t any bias on my choice. I just looked at their menu board and said. Double Cup: Speculoos and Red Velvet. It cost me PhP200. What did I tell you? It is times ten than your PhP20 ice cream. Haha~

The girl on the gelato side nodded and told me that my order will be served later on. So I looked around and chose the seat nearest to the…. Laboratorio! Wow! The place actually had a laboratory where they make all the gelato fresh. A man in a lab gown was there and I could see him concocting using all those weird machines. Awesome! 

A few minutes later, my order was served with a smile from the staff. I was so happily surprised when I saw how creative the presentation is. The Red Velvet scoop was on the bottom and the Speculoos scoop was on top. Both were perfectly round in shape. Plus, it was topped with a crispy biscuit waffle! It looked so good I didn’t want to destroy it! 

One creative cup from Bono Artisanal Gelato
Then I started to dig in. I got Speculoos because I haven’t tried it before. It tasted just like the local Hany chocnut, only a little harder. Red Velvet tasted just like the cupcake with real cheese in it, too! Both have the creamiest consistency I have seen in a in a gelato. I could feel that it had less air and  was filled with that thick gelato goodness. The flavors are very concentrated in every bite. It’s so cold and sweetened just right. Eating this made me feel classy. Haha~ Make sure you buy water too. It can irritate the throat after some time. 

Yummy perfect circles bursting with flavor! 
Looking at those informative wallpapers, I saw that their gelato is 4-8% butterfat. Uhm, can that cut on calories, too?

[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. Tous Les Jours signage in SM North The front view of the store.  Yummy breads on display!  Breads on display for sale. Oh! There is my favorite! 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
