We all Scream
For Ice Cream!
Not that I've ever heard the song before, but the lyrics in itself, is way too cool.
Suddenly I heard or read about a whole new line ups of local parlors, like, The Island Creamery, The ice cream gallery, The Daily Scoop, The Raffles Creamery and Tom's Palette .. WOW .. a whole list of ice cream parlors for me to check out .. cool eh ..
I was grocery shopping at Parkway Parade when I had a sugar rush! The word Ice Cream was screaming at me and yeah, I needed my sugar rush fixed right there and then. The watch showed half past 8. I ran to the cashier counter, paid for my groceries and told DH to go to The ice cream gallery at Eastwood Centre. Believe it or not, we reached there just before the shop closes .. phew!
There were alot of flavours to choose from, but I was rather disappointed when the ones that I wanted, - Teh Halia and Lychee, were unavailable. I settled for D24 Durian (been wanting to eat the king of fruit) and Avocado Gula Melaka (been wanting to drink Alpukat, a drink which is always served in Indo restaurants). They were both very nice and creamy.
I particularly love the Avocado Gula Melaka, maybe because of its "lemakness". Everytime, I go to an Indo restaurant/stall, even though the Alpukat drink is on the menu, it is ALWAYS not available. So the Avocado Gula Melaka kind of made up for my crave for Alpukat.
Oh yah, a scoop costs S$2.80 and a double costs S$4.20 .. easy on the pocket, I might add!
So after ice cream, as we were walking to the car parked at Bedok Corner carpark, lil sis asked if I had extra cash with me. She wanted to eat at Bedok Corner. Being the nice sis, we went. Lil sis ate Mee Soto .. it was yummy and not oily ..
and I ordered Satay for all to share.
After chomping food at Bedok Corner, I drove DH and Auni home first (coz it was way past Auni's bedtime) and then I drove lil sis home.
Windows wound down and music blasted, I drove myself home, feeling all happy for there is no better treat than a frozen one .. ahh .. sweetness!!
And happily, I have all the time, to check out all the ice cream parlours that's listed below. Even if I dont have the time, I'll try to make time.
