[Review] Lori

Bono Artisanal Gelato also has a sundae line. One of the most popular orders I heard while on queue is the Lori sundae. I was not sure whether I should try it, as the sundae line is more expensive that the gelato scoops. But out of curiosity, I tried it to understand why it is in demand. 


Lori, one scoop PhP180
It looks especially delicious, with the adorable dollops of ice cream, colorful toppings, and a large crunch of wafer. 

As I sat on the table contemplating this wonderful piece of art, I saw a little poster nearby which talked about Lori. This yummy sundae is named after the food writer Lori Baltazar of http://dessertcomesfirst.com/, in a very special collaboration with Bono Artisanal Gelato. Now that is very interesting to know. 

The Lori sundae is made up of Dulce de Leche with flambĂ©ed bananas gelato, topped with chocolate syrup, peanut brittle, and a round waffle if you order in a cup. (^_^) 


A closer look at The Lori.
The sundae is not too sweet. The Dulce de Leche is not too overpowering. The bananas are in little chunks and true enough, they still possess that fine wine aftertaste. The chocolate syrup complements the dish by adding sweetness. Lastly, the peanut brittle adds texture to the velvety smooth gelato. 

Eating one is a precursor to inspiration. Why else would I be writing about it now? Hehehe~ It is very yummy! It keeps you coming back for more. (^_^)

You know what was overwhelming in the cup? The icy coolness of the gelato. Brrr…. make sure you pair this up with water. The coldness might irritate the throat after some time. 

All in all, I would give it 2 thumbs up for it's delicious flavor and 5 stars for helping inspire me in writing a blog post. Writers don't have to worry when we have such delicious sundaes to clear our writer's block.

Great cosplay coverage. Just a question, were you there in Best of Anime 2013? Because that was the first cosplay event that I've attended, just saying... (though I'm not a cosplayer...)

Wow, that looked like a great event. I was there during Day 1, but for a really short time. Great coverage. Maybe this year's, I'd attend, should I have nothing to do by then.

Hi Nate! I was not able to go to the 2013 Best of Anime. I still feel sad that I missed it. I know it was a great event, too! (^_^)

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

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
