[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?

The 2019 Starbucks SG Planner

Happy New Year, dear readers! The year 2019 comes with new wishes, new beginnings, and of course, new planners! Yay! I'm excited for all of it. The new year for me means a fresh start for all the failures I've had for the previous year. Yep, I feel ya! 2018 was kinda rough for me, too. But anyways, I'm here to share with you a tool to help us face the days ahead.  I'm sure that some of us take life as it goes along. But there are others, like me, who have a planning personality. And lemme tell ya, it's really frustrating how things don't go according to plan. Most of the time, life doesn't make it go as planned. Ugh... But fret not! Even if life foils everything, that doesn't stop us from using planners! Wheee~ They're cute and inspirational. They give us a sense of "getting our life together" , too. Hahaha~ So for this post, I'm gonna share with you the Starbucks Singapore  2019 planner!  The 2019 Starbucks Singapore Planner

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended

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
