Beat the Heat

~ ~
Lately, the blistering heat has us rushing from one air-conditioned location to the next. In between the time it took us to get from Pasig to Rockwell, P decided to make a quick pit stop at this Korean mini-mart to buy some yummy popsicles to cool us down.


E-Pyenham Mart 
located on Pioneer St., a few blocks away from HMR and Persiana

Their shelves were packed with interesting snacks that the saleslady helpfully translated for us.

Meiji choco snacks on the top shelf

Their chillers were also well-stocked with cute, mini bottles of coffee, tea, and soda.

Banana flavored milk!

But we made a beeline straight to the freezers!
Yummy MELONA and some other variants that we need to come back for

They also had some tempting ice cream sandwiches for sale, like that one with the fish image!

Some soda pop flavored ice candy, like the ones we used to put in the freezer when we were kids.

The Pangtoa Choco Chiffon 
P: This one's pretty good. The "bread" part of the sandwich is like a cake so it's extra delicious.

In the end, we settled for Melona in strawberry and a red bean popsicle.
They were only P30 each!

P: Melona has some of the best popsicles around. The feature that sets it apart is that the popsicle is more like chewy ice cream than an ice pop. Fruity goodness!

D: Mine was scrumptious! You know how the red bean/monggo ice pops they sell here only have the actual bean just at the top? Well this had generous proportions of beans and this smooth, creamy flavor that wasn't too sickly sweet. I can't wait to buy this again!

21Men cargo pants
Bringing something different to the table with cargo pants. They're just this side of slim so they're not 90's drab but they still manage to keep you relaxed and slouchy.

vintage top, SM gray tassel belt and bangle, F21 peach cut-offs, Gold Dot wedges
Three of my current favorite things:
1. This vint top from LittleMissR is perfect for summer! Bright colors + light fabric=apropos
2. This tassel belt that I got for only P250 from SM. I love wrapping it around loose shirts or dresses and even stringing it through jeans and shoes. I think they add a fun touch.
3. These GD wedges are crazy comfy and go with just about anything!

Speaking of Rosanna, she was kind enough to give our little blog a cool make-over!
Bet you didn't know that she has mad skills when it comes to all things tech-y.
If you would like a blog that's as fashionable as you are, then send her an email at thesansinator@gmail.com.
You're sure to get a spiffed-up blog!

Stay cool, everyone! Have a great week!
