ICE FLOWER Korean Dessert Cafe


ICE FLOWER – Korean Dessert Cafe

“On trying new things.”

It’s already the “ber” months and still, it felt like Summer most of the time.

Jen and I just had one hefty lunch and we’re looking for a place with a unique dessert as we’ve had enough of the cakes that usual coffee shops are offering.

I am actually craving for “Halo-halo”, a staple dessert in our country, it usually contains different sweetened ingredients, milk base in shredded ice. My most favorite from among the many “rekados” (ingredients) is the sweetened red beans. I would have it boiled at home and add condensed milk without the shaved ice. I definitely love it.

What a coincidence that we ended up at “Ice flower”. A Korean dessert cafe that offers something similar to our “halo-halo” and I was so thrilled to find out that they have one with just red beans on it.

Upon seeing the red beans, I got so excited.

We also like the fact that their interiors are unique, a combination of industrial with raw walls and painted floors and with touches of country design with chairs in bright colors. There are hints of some elements that I loved as well.

I was counting the ACU’s and initially complained of it, not until after we had their famous dessert, the atmosphere went colder.

Where are the flowers? =)

Please take a look:

The softest shaved ice I’ve tried, so far.

Jen and I had such a crazy schedule at work, she was promoted just recently while I am assigned to several projects at work come last quarter of 2016. We are normally very busy during these months.

Busy texting…

I won’t miss capturing this.

And this.

So we didn’t get the chance to do our usual out of town trips much as we had hoped for and just make do with whatever interests us nearby. Though I equally love the discoveries we’ve made in such a small place like Molito.

They looked like Rattans, however, they’re made of weaved plastic.

Ice Flower is located at Molito, a new place that we intend to visit frequently, it is just near our place, and they have a line of very interesting shops too. Just across our rendezvous – the Alabang Town Center.

We will try this next time!

After a few days that we tried this, I learned from some friends that there are other Korean Dessert shops showing up everywhere. With that popular snack/ dessert with Azuki beans. It is known to them as Bingsu.

snow-room
Ain’t sure if the others have this kind of room. With snow falling inside.

I’m home now and finding balance, having deep thoughts over some stuff I need to do for myself and my family, and at the same time preparing for work for the coming fast-paced weeks, which I expect to be busier than the previous ones. Till then.

ps

By the way, there’s a restaurant at Molito which specializes in mushrooms, different kinds of it. I’m bringing my son over one of these days. A mushroom lover he is. I can’t wait. His smile is like sunshine to me. =)

We are both “AIR”. Currently studying the elements, and loving it with all my mind, heart and soul. =)

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
