Twist

sweet chili ice cream

strawberry ice cream? nope. it’s actually chili flavored ice cream, using small native chili peppers/ wild chili that packs a lot of heat. it’s stunning– sweet and spicy and hot and cold… it’ll make your tastebuds go crazy. 🙂 a surprisingly good twist 🙂

Tipping my small ice cream cup
For that last cool drop.

Frozen blanket pulled
From the earth’s sleepy surface
Flowers rub their eyes.

Daily Prompt: 32 Flavors

Vanilla, chocolate, or something else entirely?

Yup this is a response to a previous prompt. but it fits so well! so I hope it’s still a valid entry. ^^

Well, it’s a pretty easy one and my answer’s pretty damn obvious too! ^^ BOTH. and a whole lot more…

Below are the evidence of me indulging in my other lover… my sordid love affair… with ice cream.

I really meant to post about my fave local ice cream parlor in Naga City, Coldshack. ^^I mean seriously, forget Haagen-Dazs (not that I don’t love ‘em too,lol) but the best ice cream for me are the ones with real fruits.. My favorite flavor of all time is the Nangkasuy (jackfruit and cashew). Boyfie’s fave is the Durian flavored ice cream but I kinda think it’s gross, lol, not for everyone ^^The Korean fish-shaped ice cream sandwich is also yummy… it’s wafer filled with vanilla ice cream and red bean… I’m gaga over desserts with red bean! ^^ Some days, I bring my laptop there and surf away.. some days I just drop by to take home a pint of my fave. It’s also my special bonding place wit my 14 year old cousin. So really, how can I not love this guilty pleasure? ^^

Sigh. All in all, I’d have to say… It’s a bit of a Love-Hate relationship. ^^

All Wrapped Up: Crepes

Time to post about something that’s not for a daily prompt or weekly challenge. ^^ Believe it or not, I realized that I have something in common with crepes… We’re both yummy Sometimes we’re hot. Sometimes we’re cold. ^^

HOT – Baby Back Crepe

Ice Cream , Chocolate Hot Fudge Brownie.. sorry it melted 😦

oh they also have shelves and shelves of books..mostly about food and cooking. nice place. you can bring your laptop ‘ere too and blog away over some Lavazza.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Korean ice cream

A foreign themed photo challenge and as usual, I chose to post a hasty snapshot of dessert. ^^ A freezer-ful of Korean Ice Cream from a Korean store in Naga City. Even the store itself is pretty foreign to me. I don’t read Korean so I don’t have a damn clue on what any of the labels say but not even language barrier is going to come between me and my first love — ice cream. ^^
