[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!

[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

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
