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!

The royal "M"

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)

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
