Earle Swensen’s Gelato Bonanza

-Media Invitation-

I’ve got simple kids who gets easily excitable…
They were already grinning from ear to ear at the sound of ice cream.
And fixing their own banana split got them over the moon and staying there.

Hiroshi and Sophia had so much fun fixing their own banana split.
While James couldn’t care less… He just wanted to EAT it!

As we indulge in our banana split, we can’t help but notice that the ice cream were creamier and the flavors were more intense than before. Ahh, a closer look into the press kit reveals that Earle Swensen’s is offering a whole new gelato menu starting from January 2015. This simply means that all your ice cream from Earle Swensen’s gets an upgrade into atas Gelato!

With this much flavors to choose from, there are bound to be something for everyone!

I was suppose to be having Joy in a Jar. A beautiful concoctions of delectable chocolate brownie loaded with bananas, fresh strawberries layered with vanilla and thin mint ice cream. But, it got hijacked by Sophia who emptied the entire jar before returning it to me!! *sob sob*

Hiroshi had Molten Chocolate Lava Cake served with Cheese Cookie Gelato. Gooey Lava were oozing out of the Molten Lava Cake as we dug our spoons into it. Hiroshi wasn’t crazy about the Molten Chocolate Lava Cake, but he polished up the cheese cookie gelato instantaneously.

With everybody else’s sweet tooth well satisfied and kids bouncing off the walls, I finally get to eat my dessert in peace. I had a hard time deciding with Earle Swensen’s extensive Gelato dessert menu. After much deliberation, I finally settled with Celebrity Brownies served with Durian Gelato. Warm fudgy Brownies against the full flavored silky smooth durain gelato was extremely pleasurable for the taste buds. It does feels like I’ve died and gone to dessert heaven!

There is always room for dessert, especially when it is gelato. Earle Swensen’s NEW Gelato Menu will be available from 1st January 2015 in restaurants islandwide.

Full Disclosure: We were invited to Earle Swensen’s for food tasting by Touch PR. Views and Opinions are my own. *burp*

9 and a 1/2

You’ve waited all year round for this day to proclaim to the world
that you are finally 9 and a 1/2.
But in actual fact, you’re only 9.

I find it amusing that as kids, you can’t wait to grow up.
While as parents, we felt that you’re all growing up way too soon.

9 years from the first cries that made me mom,
today we are already celebrating your transition into tweenhood…

Happy Birthday Hiroshi!

We stumbled upon The Queen & Mangosteen at Vivo City (#01-106/107).
The Lunch Special seems like a very good deal!

Soup of the day was Mushroom Soup. And our votes were unanimous…
Even James agrees that the unadulterated creamy Mushroom Soup is outta this world!

Chicken Cordon Bleu, Red Snapper Loin, Braised Ox-tail.

Hiroshi and Sophia gave 2 thumbs up for the food.

$16.90++ for Soup of the day and Main course with free flow drinks is a steal.

Attentive service staff.

The cozy ambiance coupled with a panoramic waterfront view of scenic Sentosa makes The Queen & Mangosteen a perfect dinning location for many different occasions.

Very spacious restaurant. Reasonably priced, but I was hoping for better service.

Finally a family photo to freeze up this precious moment of you being 9 and a 1/2.
