Of Gold, Pistachios, and Chocolate

The Magnum Pop-up store will only be open until March 2015! So I hurried to the fifth floor of SM Aura Premier to get a taste of sweet indulgence before it's gone in Manila. The place was very modern and posh. The yellow lighting added a feel of luxury, too. 

When I came in, I directly headed to the Magnum Bar counter where I paid a hundred bucks and was made to choose for my personalized Magnum ice cream. I thought it would only include three toppings of choice. It turns out that I get to choose the flavor of the ice cream bar, the coating, and the drizzle, too. Sweet! 

So here is my Magnum creation...

Angel Mariel's Magnum creation (PhP 100)

Pretty right? It looked to good to be eaten. This is made up of chocolate ice cream bar and coated with dark chocolate. Yes, as the title of this post hints, I chose the toppings Gold Nuggets, Chopped Pistachios, and Choco Crunch Balls. I was about to choose a chocolate drizzle but the maker suggested white chocolate. I agreed, it's nice to put a touch of highlight on it. 

The Magnum "M" logo made the ice cream regal. That M is made of chocolate too. It's just absolutely splendid!

This chocolate bar is only for take-out. The restaurant area is for those who want to dine in the wide array of Magnum-inspired desserts and dishes. The place doesn't only serve Magnum ice cream but also real food. However, I remembered my aunt saying that she didn't find the pasta delicious, and I trust her. Maybe next time, I can go back with my friends and try out the food. But for this visit, I was alone. 

I slowly ate this too-good-to-be-true bar in the holding area at the side, where a sofa is placed. In my seat, I got a good view of the Magnum display logo all made up of Magnum sticks.

My front view was the Magnum Bar where I got my ice cream earlier. The one accessory that got my attention was the lighting, where the lights were housed in a brown shiny metal shaped in what looked like flowing chocolate. Sorry, my hands were messy and busy on the Magnum that I forgot to take a photo of it. Hehehe~ But if ever you get to visit, take a look at it and be mesmerized!

So you ask if I would go back? Definitely, but not after March 2015! Hehehe~ I want to see the array of choices of toppings, to be asked what ice cream flavor would it be, to choose the dark chocolate coating again, to see the grace of the maker as she drizzles chocolate, and to feel the triumphant feeling when she puts the M logo chocolate as if it's a crown.

That looks soooo delicious, lol. We don't have anything like that here, and I'm grateful for it! (Or else I'd be eating more often than I should)

[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
