I know I haven’t been active lately but there’s a reason. I will be updating with fun things soon but for now this will have to do. If it makes you feel any better, my own journal and my diary have not been touched in months! From lack of energy among other things…

Anyway, for their honeymoon, they decided to go to Disney with 8 other people. Okay, I know that may sound weird but that’s because they’re leaving (or rather, they’ve left) for China for two years!
One of the most memorable things we did at Disney World was have afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian. It is one of the resorts they have there but once you step in, it’s not like the other Disney themed resorts.
We decided to go for the Buckingham Palace tea which includes their traditional tea sandwiches, scones and jam tarts complemented by fresh strawberries and cream, or a selection of freshly baked pastries, along with your choice of tea. $23.00 per guest.
It came with the standard type of sandwiches and an onion tart. They were kind enough to allow me to switch the meat ones for egg salad sandwiches My friends tell me that this has been the first time they were able to finish all the sandwiches so they must be good!
All in all it was a fun experience. The server we had was very accommodating! Our friend was cold and she brought out a table cloth for her to wear… haha. Definitely a must visit on your trip to Disney World
Disney World – Grand Floridian Resort
Aside from people posting pictures of their Minion collection from McDonalds, the next big thing that’s popping up all over my Facebook are pictures of people’s ice cream creations from the Magnum Pleasure Store [Details here]
This pop-up shop will be open until August 30, 2013 so if you find yourself in the Yorkville area, make sure you visit. Especially this Thursday. Joffrey Lupul will be there
I dragged my friend yesterday and be warned, there is a long line up. Mostly Asian people because most of the obnoxious people on Chowhound or those types of sites are Asian self-proclaimed “Foodies”. Please don’t lynch me. I’m kidding. (sort of) Also, I apologize that the photos are iPhone quality. I forgot to bring my camera.
So once you get through the grueling line, you’re able to choose the ice cream flavour (chocolate or vanilla), the coating, and then your toppings for your ice cream.
Here is the menu that’s provided to you while you wait in line. We had to return it as they only had a limited amount of these menus. The toppings range from rose petals, to chili flakes. Oh, can’t forget bacon!!!
Once you choose your toppings, they are put into a shaker and given to another person who assembles it. He dips your ice cream in the desired coating and shakes your toppings on it. If you ask for the golden touch, they spring edible gold flakes on your ice cream. Supposedly, they also give you gold nail polish but I did not get mine.
Finally, here is my creation: Vanilla with dark chocolate coating, macadamia nut pieces, white chocolate vermicelli, crushed popcorn, chopped almonds (almond slivers), toffee bits, rock sea salt, topped with crumbled French macarons with the goldentouch. It came to $6 even.
My friend got a vanilla ice cream with white chocolate coating, crumbled biscuit, chocolate rice crispies, grape nerds and topped with crumbled French macarons. And no matter how many or how little toppings you get, it is still $6
