[Review] Kool Kids Ice Cream and Co.

Have you ever visited a store just to go take a look but a kind person at the counter greeted you with all smiles... and you ended up buying something? 

That's what precisely happened to me on my first visit to Kool Kids. I came from Otaku Expo and my feet were very tired after all the walking. I wanted to eat at someplace nearby so I could sit and rest for a short while, too. 

It was a new place in SM Megamall Fashion Hall so I decided to check it out first. But the very accommodating crew looked at me with smiling eyes and said, "Hi, Ma'am! Welcome to Kool Kids! Here is our menu of ice cream and toppings, just choose on the list of flavors of the day." 

Now, who would not want to buy after that?  

At first, I didn't understand the menu. It was all in creative names with 2 or 3 combinations of flavors. It turns out that the ice cream would be then mixed from there. So I chose three scoops of "Minty Claus", a mixture of chocolate and mint. I got to choose three toppings to go with it. I picked up Pretzel Krunchies, Choco Chips, and Rice Krispy Cubes. 

Minty Claus because... there was no other flavor on the list that has chocolate on it. Heehee~ What's amazing is that, I saw how they blended the ice cream flavors on an electric mixer. And whoosh~ The ice cream chilled the air and created a light mist! Amazing! After that, the crew put in my chosen toppings. 

Presenting... my Minty Claus:

Yeah I know that the Rice Krispies seem to ruin the look. But ah well~ They taste great! The chocolate ice cream is thick and delicious. It is more like cocoa with subtle caramel flavor. The mint is just enough to give that cool feeling. The salt from the pretzel gives an exotic, kind of out-of-place, flavor. But it does balance the sweetness of the dessert. 

It was a nice journey to winter land! By the way, Minty Claus is a Christmas flavor, so I doubt if it is still available.

While eating, I took a good look at the place. The pantry concept behind the counter is nice as it gives that warm feeling of being at home. The place is somewhat small for comfort though, there are not enough space to freely walk around. The tables and chairs were very colorful and yes, it gives that vibe of childhood, of being Kool Kids.

[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!

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
