Carmen's Best Ice Cream from the Philippines is HERE IN SINGAPORE!

When you get the name of "The Best Ice Cream in Philippines", your ice cream must be damn good.
But what makes a Best Ice Cream? More Flavours? More ingredients in your pint?

At Carmen's Best, they believe in using the best ingredients and the best method to produce their ice cream. No preservatives added and all natural flavours from the best ingredients they can get.

The eye-opening tasting was held at Mariko's on Jiak Chuan street, this is also where you can get Carmen's Best Ice Cream in Singapore!

Carmen's Best - Who is Carmen?
Carmen is the daughter of Mr Paco Magsaysay, who is the owner of Carmen's Best Ice Cream. What a sweet dad, who happens to product a sweet treat! :P

Mr Paco has a dairy farm where they produce their own milk to use for their ice cream. They control what their cows eat so that they produce the specific quality of milk for their ice cream making. Plus! Their cows get to listen to classical music as well, so happy cows = good quality milk!

And with machines imported from Denmark, it ensures that there are no air inserted into the ice creams to allow customers to get the most out of their purchases. Mr Paco is very into quality and not quantity, unlike the other big brands.

First up, it's the Madagascar Vanilla.
I have not tasted any vanilla ice cream like this in years! They scraped the Madagascar Vanilla Bean to extract all the flavour to make this ice cream and I super love to see the vanilla seeds in my vanilla ice cream, so that I know that they company used real vanilla beans to make one!

Next up is Pistachio! I've always eaten pistachio gelato and hardly had any pistachio ice cream. The mouth feel of their ice cream is very creamy, but not gelat too. Best thing is that they have Whole pistachio inside the ice cream! I ate at least 4 pistachios in a cup.

I love chocolate ice cream and we got to try the Dark Chocolate flavour using the finest Swiss cocoa Powder. I always have a problem of chocolate ice cream getting too gelat(sick) after afew mouthful due to all the added sugars in other brands. However, I could finish this cup of chocolate ice cream with no gelat feeling at all.

Out of the 3, my favourite that night will have to be the Masagascar Vanilla flavour. It's super shiok and the vanilla flavour just bursts in your mouth without leaving a nasty sweet after-taste. And Carmen's Ice cream has a higher butter fat content, which makes the mouth feel really smooth.

You can get them by the pints in if you visit Philippines.
No news of them selling in retail for now. I will update everyone when they are available.
Meanwhile, just visit Mariko's first!

Rose Gold Hair with Headlines by Artistry

I had a head of golden brown, just like Goldilocks HAHAHA!
I was working it with all possible fashion cordinates and it went really well surprisingly.

But then I decided that the black roots growing out would make me look like I have a Black Crown. #ohno Therefore I went to Elein of Headlines by Artistry to save me.

At first, I want to chop of some of my hair one, hair length change might be a good change also.
But Elein suggested that since I want to cut, might as well bleach them first, to try a different look. So I say, OK ! Lets go!

After bleaching, More Golden than your Gold Bar. Hahaha!

I chose the Mucota Hair Colour V-8 or V-6 I think. It's a purple-ish Pinkish tone.
Super excited when I saw it on the colour chart. Haha.

Final Results: Beautiful Rose Hair. 
It somehow reminds me of Park Shin Hye's hair colour in the drama "Doctors" . Haha. I'm a Korean Princess now~ *wave wave*

The Hair Colour looks even better under sunlight. And hor, I believe that curling your hair makes a whole lot of difference when you take photo. Haha. the hair looks so much better after being curled!

You can see that there are a little different shades of colour as my hair previously was unevenly dyed at home, lol. #baddecisionswhenyouareyoung

Chopped off some of the loooooong fringe to achieve this korean princess look.
I ownself say ownself princess can? Hehe. Some call this hair the Dip Dye, I call it the Park Shin Hye Hair Colour Style. Haha!
