Who what where ?

Off I go…

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

No more ash spewing Eyjafllalalala volcano, and Bangkok (my overlay) is quiet too (or every was has been beat to death and there’s no one to report it back to the world), so my flight tonight is safe !
So Taipei, here I come …
…straight into the annual rain season.

Wrong mix

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Tropicana also released a limited summer edition juice, in the flavor Orange/Watermelon. I like most fruit juices, as long as they taste sweet and fruity, but this particular mix, is quite ew eew eeew. It’s a watery non-sweet non-fruity stale drink. Maybe they used the wrong watermelons, or the choice of watermelon is to blame in the first place, in any case, avoid this at all cost.

To Yum or not to Yum

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

The Summer is upon us, and what better way to spend it stuffing your stomach full of new yummy goodness. Here are a few new things to try:

Lay’s Pepperoni Limited Edition:
I think this one is from the user suggested flavor contest. It’s a nice idea, the scent when opening the package and the first few bites do indeed remind of a shallow Pepperoni flavor, but ultimately, it just tastes some kinda salty. Not too special, so it’s okay it’s just a limited edition.

Lay’s Honey Mustard Limited Edition:
Another new flavor mix, and there’s a slight mustard hint in some bites. The honey part is harder to find. But even then, it’s not that great a mix, and tastes more like chemicals than real mustard. A big misser here.

Lay’s Sensations Mexican Peppers & Cream:
Actually tastes likes normal Paprika. The flavor only comes up in some bites, but it’s nothing too special.

Magnum Essense:
Not sure if it’s really new, but it’s just an ice cream bar, with plain ol’ ice cream and an extra middle bar of chocolate. It doesn’t stack up to the Magnum Classic, as that has better chocolate and real vanilla ice cream.

Magnum Gold:
Not a gold medal winner, as the outside gold, is just white chocolate (not really chocolate to begin with, imho), and the inside is plain ice cream with only a bit of caramel swirls. It’s sweat, but it lacks depth.

Ola Cornetto Engima Chocolate:

What always seems an impossibility, Ola finally got the idea we’ve all been waiting for. Ice cream cone where the flavor goes all the inside and way down. This chocolate flavor though, it’s the sugar kinda, and not that chocolaty. The nuts on top aren’t crunchy either. It’s a miss here, can’t recommend it over a “normal” Cornetto.


Ola Cornetto Engima Raspberry:
Finally a winner, marred by the fact that the raspberry sauce is probably authentic, but too badly, not filtered. You will have to swallow the small raspberry pits all the way through. But the crunchy sweetness and full fruity flavor makes this one the addictive snack for this summer.

Review: Where the Wild Things Are

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Have to put reviews from earlier this year, been too busy.

So here’s a real oldy, where the trailer points to a kiddy movie. Reviews made it seem like it could be a family flick, but the child’s imaginary world has no real deeper meaning and doesn’t really lead to anywhere. Themes and dialogue aren’t interesting, so basically, it’s a big downer.
