[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, 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! (^_^)

Oh I see. I was there, great event, although rainy. Nice cosplay coverages, I might probably see you in a cosplay event in the future.

[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

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
