Binggrae: MELONA Korean Ice Cream Sandwhich and Popsicles

I have heard a lot of Pinoys are now enjoying a taste of Korea not just on Kimchis but also on ICE CREAMS!
So I searched about this famous Melona K-Pop (Korea Popsicles) and found out that it is from Binggrae. They brought the Korean ice cream goodness here in the Philippines! Now, I think we will be hooked, not on  koreanovelas but also on Korean ice creams!

I badly wanted to try out this Melona ice cream because everyone is saying only good things about it, but I didn't have any luck in finding one.. I don't know where to get it! Until one day when I was with my office mates as we are headed to a team GA, I finally found the answer to my curiosity:

Masan (Korean and Japanese) Grocery in Farmer's Market Cubao...

I didn't had the chance to buy one and taste it that time since we were off to somewhere. But I am happy that I was able to find a Korean store somewhere near!

My "5 minute" encounter with LIFEHOUSE!

The band behind the hits You and Me, Hanging by a Moment, Broken, Everything, etc. Yes, you got it right! Lifehouse! Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr., Bryce Soderberg, Ben Carey and Jason Wade was here in the Philippines  last May 26, 2012 for a concert held at Araneta Coliseum.

Okay to make it clear, I didn't had the chance to watch their concert, for the sole reason that I need to go to work that night. After feeling like a loser and being so sad that I can't go to the concert, I can say that May 26 is not a bad day at all!

I was one of the lucky few who got the chance to have a glimpse of Lifehouse last May 26 at Ali Mall, Cubao for a quick Meet and Greet before their show! Now this is a quick look back on the best 5minutes I spent this May (Yes, i know "5 minutes" is not accurate but almost kinda near the target), just to see Mr. Jason Wade, the band's vocalist.

SWENSEN'S ice cream is America's favorite since 1948. Now they approximately have over 400 stores worldwide! And even if I'm on the other side of the earth, nothing's gonna stop me and a few of my officemates in trying their ice cream because SWENSEN'S Eastwood (QC, Philippines) is now scooping!

Just by browsing their menu, you will fall in love with all the flavors they can offer! From scoops, toppings, sundaes, shakes and smoothies, etc.; you will surely have a hard time to pick! It seems like everything is absolutely yummy! :p
