A Taste of Japan's Sweets at Mochi Cream

I love eating Mochi! I love it so much that I would put mochi balls as the toppings on my yogurt. I like the different variants such as Mochi Poochi's ice cream mochi and it was really delicious.

So when I saw a friend in Facebook posting about Mochi Cream’s desserts and how he doesn't mind spending for it, I became quite curious about it. Mochi Cream claims to serve the authentic mochi from Japan. That made me even more excited to try it out that I went to Glorietta last weekend. 

When I got there, I expected all the usual sweet stuff: chocolates, strawberries, blueberries, vanilla…. but I got surprised with what I saw. On their posters are the flavors green tea, black sesame, matcha, red bean, sakura…. I mean, are these desserts? But according to boyfie, those are the real flavors from Japan.

There are also chocolate and vanilla in the menu, but only a little. I’m used to western desserts and pastries that are more on the sweeter side. Japanese desserts are different, I guess. Theirs is still more on the ‘herbal’ and ‘plant’ side of things. Hehehe~

So anyway, for my purchase, I chose the flavor I’m most curious with: Sakura. It was the most attractive in the bunch, being in cute pink! (^_^) But yeah, my sweet tooth side just won’t let me go and I ordered Chocolate Banana too,

The staff were nice and they served my mochi gourmet style, complete with presentation. The mochi were cut in half and so I saw the creative layers inside. Cool!

Both mochi were frozen at first but they’re chewable already. Biting into the chewy skin, I tasted something akin to red bean paste with a flower flavor. The cream at the center tasted like vanilla.  It might be just me, but the sakura flavor mochi has a floral taste. Ah well, just go and taste if for yourself because I can’t describe it. It was unique and distinctive.

For the Chocolate Banana, the bean paste was all about banana with chocolate chips. The cream in the center is chocolate. It is gently sweet. The flavor of glutinous rice is still dominant. Of course, I choose this to be better than Sakura, hey, I am a sweet tooth. Hehehe~

These babies are really delicious and yes, they taste like Japan! Now, I’m addicted with Mochi Cream too! Woah~ The staff will really be familiar with my face this time. And just like my friend, I will not think twice of spending for these lovely mochi!

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
