SG | Honey Creme

The battle of the Korean-style soft serve ice cream has already started in Singapore, running since 2014, me thinks.  Now isn't it high time I try and see what the hype's all about?

First stop, Honey Creme.

Honey Creme

Is it just me, or does it seem like almost all major Korean food shops follow the same recipe?

Number 1: The cutesy motif?  Check.
Number 2: Organic offerings?  Double check.
Number 3: Original flavors (also in line with the cutesy motif)?  Triple check.

From what I hear, Honey Creme isn't really the brand that started it all.  That distinction goes to Softree.  But although a knock-off (riding the bandwagon of the Korean-style soft serve ic train), foodies swear by the brand and its delicious sweet, milky goodness.

On a regular day, they offer 10 flavors and introducing a few seasonal items during special holidays.  But alas!  I am but one person and my waistline cannot take too much sweets anymore.  So I, begrudgingly, settle on one that caught my eye -- the Comb Honey (S$5.60/approx Php190 a cup).

Comb Honey
I've never been one to take my ice cream ladled with too much toppings.  It just doesn't seem right.  So the idea of a simple vanilla soft serve topped with organic honey and the comb (no less) sounded just right (plus I was curious to know what honey comb tastes like).

Another angle

The verdict.  It was ok. 

The ice cream itself wasn't too sweet (with the honey providing it with the perfect amount of extra saccharine needed, a good mix.)  But I think it's lacking a bit of that milky flavor, which was sort of what I was hoping to taste (basing it from reading other people's reviews of this brand).

The honey comb?  Sweet but with a few waxy bits which stuck into my teeth.  The parts that were edible provided an interesting, slightly crunchy contrast to the milk ice cream.  For the most part though, I just squeezed the extra honey out of it.

The verdict?  Not too bad.  Not really something I'd want to line up hours for, but I am curious to try the other flavors.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
