Tropical storm Ofel is now out of the country, thank God, and the sun has made its presence palpable, casting a golden glow and spreading its warmth. Just yesterday and especially the other night, incessant rains sent my heart aflutter over the possibility of another flood-inside-the-house incident. But today, to my glee, it's sunny and warm again.. no, hot! And what is there better to eat than ice cream to cool down from the midday heat? And as my "son-in-law" (well, my daughter and her beau are not married yet but seriously together) had just celebrated his birthday, I had no qualms about hauling our asses off to the nearest ice cream store, the... well, Ice Cream Store. :-)
The Ice Cream Store has several branches around Metro Manila, some of which that I've seen and visited are on Visayas Ave., near Anonas St. and in Fairview, all in Quezon City. They sell a wide variety of cool treats such as ice drops, ice buko, pinipig crunch, ice cream sandwich and ice cream on tubs. If you want to eat in the store, you can choose from their specialty ice cream desserts. If you're hungry and want something to fill you up before indulging in ice cream, there's pizza, hotdog sandwich and siopao, too. Choices are many, don't you worry. What's astounding, however, are the prices in which they come. Very affordable! Very yummy too!
