Another Move Night: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I am embarassed to say that I have never seen any Indiana Jones movie before. So when Mon wanted to watch this, I was not expecting much. I wasn't even sure I would like it. But after watching, I wish I had seen all of Indy's adventures in the past.

Magnolia's Choco Chip Cookie Dough

It is Magnolia... and it is limited. So you better get a tub for yourself before it's too late! How can you resist vanilla ice cream with chocolate swirls... cookie dough... and lots of choco bits! You just can't!

It comes in a tub with a cool fun design.

The blend of the textures and flavors are perfect. Creamy... chocolatey... chewy... with just the right amount of sweetness... we loved this!

It is the Magnolia goodness I have always known and grew up with.

Eng Bee Tin Hopia: Ube and Monggo

We love Eng Bee Tin's hopia. This has been a family favorite for decades! We used to buy their hopia in Ongpin when they were still wrapped in paper.

And now, Eng Bee Tin has opened several branches around the Metro and are sold in some groceries too. It has also taken a new look; they now come in these pretty pillow packs with the best before sign and even the nutrition facts!

Even Yoshiko and Sacchin agree that Eng Bee Tin hopia is the best they have ever tasted. Creamy and smooth with just the right amount of sweetness and "chewiness". Every bite is just a melt-in-the-mouth experience!

Eng Bee Tin is the brand to beat. Truly. I wouldn't dare try any other brand because everything else pales.

We like the movie. It has a certain mood and atmosphere that is consistent throughout the film. The cast is great as well as the visuals. And it has a story to tell. We're proud to have seen this film.

Selecta's Brownie Fudge A La Mode

It is still summer, and ice cream is still one of the most delicious ways to cool off on a scorching hot day.

I was hoping to get the Hazelnut flavor today but there was no stock so I settled for this.

Though I am not exactly jumping up and down over this flavor, it was still good.

I still couldn't settle for just one cupful.

Red Ribbon's Ube Macapuno Roll

Every box like this holds something special inside. It holds something sweet... something fresh... something heavenly... And this box is no different.

Each box comes with a Best Before stamp to make sure you are getting only the freshest and 'moist-est' deal.

And the deal I got was this half Ube Macapuno Roll that is just so yummy! It never fails to catch my eye because of its color, and it never fails to satisfy. It is made of the classic chiffon cake in ube, bathed in ube crumbs and filled with creamy macapuno, all in a roll... then topped with these cream tufts that Red Ribbon has mastered the art of... this is a sure winner!

Slice after slice after slice... I never get tired of this. Who does??!
