Sebastian's: One of Manila's Finest Artisan Ice Cream

Me and Gino are food lovers. I know there are a lot of Artisan Ice Creams in the Metro and I heard that there are 3 top choices for Artisan Ice Creams and those are Sebatian's, Carmen's Best Artisanal Ice Cream and Gelato and Merry Moo Ice Cream.

Yesterday, I saw a blog about Sebatian's Green Mango Ice Cream with Bagoong on Top. I was intrigued by the flavor. For one, I have never tried an Ice Cream with Bagong on top....so, today, we decided to look for the nearest Sebatian's Ice Cream shop and we found one at The Podium.

I got a little sad because the Green Mango Ice Cream was not available. So, we opted to try the other flavors. Gino bought the Palitaw Ice Cream (Php 100) and I bought the Once in a Blue Moon Ice Cream (Php 140).

My goodness...these are really artisan ice creams. The flavor is rich and you can taste the real deal in the ice creams. It's like eating a real palitaw and a real blue cheese ice cream. The blue cheese ice cream was topped with carmel syrup (I think if I'm not mistaken) and walnuts. It taste heavenly.

They have other ice cream flavors to choose from like the Red Velvet, Sapin-Sapin, Champorado, Pure Mango, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt, Cookies n Cream, etc.

We would definitely go back to try the Green Mango with Bagoong Ice Cream

Intense Japanese Experience: Drum Tao The Art of Japanese Drumming

Today is one of the best days of my life. I got to watch Drum Tao with Gino.

The sensational group from Japan, would be here from July 12 - 22, 2012. To give you a preview, here's a teaser clip from youtube.

I don't want to post a lot of spoilers but all I can say is that you have to watch it yourself. It is a different experience for your eyes and your ears. I am so amazed with the lady drummers of TAO. They were graceful and yet they were the ones playing with the biggest drums in the set.

I love the in-between acts of the drummers. They actually let the audience participate in the in-between acts. It's also quite humorous. It reminds me of that MTV Asia Parody. Comical relief.

We actually got our tickets 20% off. Just say the code: TRAVELIFE while purchasing the ticket. I really don't want to spoil anything. So you better watch them while they are still here :)
