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.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[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
