[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! (^_^)

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.

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
