Rita's A Sweet Name

It as my foodie cousin who introduced me to the sweetest name in the ice cream world! He invited us to go to UP Town Center for dinner and the desserts made it unforgettable. Rita's ice cream came from the US and there are currently a few branches here in the Metro. At first, I didn't expect much but when we got there, the long queue proved that their ice cream is one of the best.

We braved the long line of people and I finally got a clear shot of the menu. Everything on it looked absolutely delectable. The prices are reasonable, too.

On the menu is more sweetness!
While on queue, my cousin told me to pick a flavor of shaved iced and a custard flavor. I didn't know why but I chose anyway... From an array of fruity flavors, it was hard to make a choice. While the rest of the family picked green tea flavor without any second thoughts, I, on the other hand, had my favorite cotton candy.

Shaved ice. The blue one is my pick. Cotton Candy!
For the frozen custard ice cream, I chose a combination of coffee and vanilla. After a few minutes of waiting, I saw something worth drooling for! It's like a new concept on the way ice cream is served. I love how the creamy frozen custard twirls like that! Creative swirls are inspiring!

My order is first in line: Cotton Candy shaved ice with Frozen Custard ice cream on top

The frozen custard is not the ordinary soft serve ice cream. It had a thick texture. It was like a really really soft meringue in ice cream form. The shaved ice is very fine and oozing with cotton candy flavor.

While eating, I took a look around and found out the name of this heavenly delight. We were treated to their bestseller: the Gelati. 

The poster of Gelati I saw on site.
Oh you mean there's more ice cream underneath the shaved iced? You bet! It was the perfect grande finale for the cup! Yummy! This place truly brings happiness!

Ice. Custard. Happiness. This place lives up to it!
What a sweet name "Rita" is to me now. How can a cup of ice cream make me happy like this? I hope there will be more branches soon...so that happiness won't be that far away.

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

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur

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
