Juice-mio. Summer na naman? I didn’t even get to enjoy the December breeze at heto na naman ang init! I thought I’d get to enjoy the outdoors a little more, at least until my dining room is finished so we don’t sweat while eating meals at our cozy little patio. But the heat & the glaring sun is truly unbearable now, especially at noontime. :| Hindi na kaya ng powers ko.
Coupled with my peri-menopausal situation, this is not a very good combination. I always add ice cubes to my drinks now. Ice is my best friend because it cools me faster than anything. Even dips at the pool don’t get the job done I’m afraid. Kahit tubig kasi, mainit! Feeling ko pati dugo ko natutuyot, daig pa ng bampira maka-drain ng life at energy hay!
Thank goodness for cold-inducing desserts. While in Pasig looking for chairs for our dining room, Kap & I got a chance to make usi Vampire Penguin Manila, a dessert shop that hails from California and serves shaved snow desserts at the newly opened mall called Ayala Malls the 30th. (Wala na ba silang maipangalan at number na talaga? Lolz.)

Galing ng segue ko diba? ;P Vampire Penguin is a penguin character who lives in the North Pole. And even though there are no other penguins in the North Pole, Vampire Penguin lives there because he is a vampire. His best friend is a walrus who thinks he is also a vampire. But behind Vampire Penguin‘s nonchalant eyes, he truly misses his family and longs to be with them, so he makes shaved snow to bring families and friends together.
I’m already dreaming of Korea this June where the weather is I’m sure, much cooler. How I wish we can go someplace chilly earlier, but as usual, the kids’ sked in school prevents us from going anywhere at the snap of a finger huhu. Alam nyo naman ang motto namin, OHANA! #family-nobodygetsleftbehind :P
For now, I’d just have to content myself with shaved ice. Lots n lots. @_@ Heck, even whole blocks of ice if that will get my temp down. Happy start of summer guys! :-*
