[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?

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi
