A Taste of Escolta Ice Cream

The other day me and my girlfriends (office mates) went to Escolta Ice Cream and Snacks to avail our voucher from Metro Deal.

Escolta Ice Cream and Snacks is the only store in Manila that offers Big Scoop Ice Cream. (Or so I think?)

They offered their Big Scoop banana split which is regularly priced at P120 for only P49 talk about great deal huh!

It has three scoops of ice cream flavors, banana sliced into halves, some chopped nuts, whipped cream and cherry on top and chocolate syrup. The one that I got consists of strawberry,vanilla and chocolate. I love the strawberry and vanilla, because it is not that sweet.

My banana split taken by my friend. I forgot to bring my camera and my cp is low bat. tsk!

Our Banana Split with IDs hehehe! (mine is not included, it was still in one of the staffs)

My Avocado Flavored Junior Scoop Ice Cream. According to the sales staff it is their best seller so I tried it. And it do deserved to be best seller. It is really delicious and very creamy.

Me want more!

We really enjoyed our banana split, and we promised to try their “Mount Everest”. It has 9 scoops of Big Scoop ice cream.


wondering len



My mind now is again in its hyper mode. I’ve been thinking too much lately. Earlier on my way home my mind wanders off again. I realized that in less than four months I’m turning 31; yeah I know spinsterhood is just around the corner. But I don’t give a heck with that.

What is getting into my nerve is that up to this age I still haven’t got enough achievement to boost to. First, I haven’t got my own house. Second, I don’t have car yet and third, I tried to remember how much my savings is, I almost cried. Poor me!

Tsk! But that is all material things, and I am not a materialistic person. It’s nothing. (Did I hear someone booed?)

What I’m really alarmed is that when I try to figure out on what I’m really good at I realized there is none! Surely I know a lot of things. Someone called me before a “jill of all trades”. Now I can add “A master of nothing” to that.

Maybe now is the time to push thru my old goals. I really want to study again, but not another degree!  I think I shall enroll in short courses this year. It is never late for learning anyway.

I just wonder if this is what they call mid-life crisis.

back to school

Finally I’m done buying school things for Muriel. I’m no fan of late minute shopping for I have the tendency to forget something; even I have a list (sighs). I have started buying last March, and by the end of April I thought that I’m done with it.

But good lord I am so wrong. The teacher gave us list of things to buy and some I wasn’t able to buy beforehand. And to top it all the little girl doesn’t have a bag yet! That’s because I planned to get her a character bag from Tupper Brand, unfortunately I didn’t like the bag when I saw it. So off we go to SM North Edsa, and I was shocked to see all the people doing their last-minute back to school shopping. All counters have long queue (argh!). For a minute I thought I was again in 168 Mall at Divisoria except that the air conditioning is colder at 168. (Yes you read it right it is colder in 168 Mall than SM that time). After I have paid the bag we went to National Bookstore to have the teacher’s list complete, but as I was about to go inside I saw the people lining up at the counters I told myself this is no good. I decided to just drop at National Bookstore at Victory Mall hoping that there are fewer shoppers there. Alas, I am wrong again! You cannot even choose which one to buy for there are a lot of people; some items have fallen off from their shelves. What I did was to go straight to every section that I have to go and pick up the ones I needed never looking at the price (so much for frugality) and went straight to the line up for the counter. It took aeons to pay for the things that I bought.

I realized it’s better to buy at Divisoria and Binondo for school supplies, provided that you do it ahead of time. It’s not hard for me because I’m working at Binondo. I’ll just remember the added requirement of the teacher so I’ll buy it in advance next year.
