Dessert Comes First!
Right now, there is no difference whether umulan o umaraw dito sa Pinas. Mainit padin. So it might be a lazy mid-week, but the kids went to (faraway) Eastwood just for a cold ice cream treat:
The place is called SWENSEN'S, a big FINALLY for the ice cream and sundae lovers out there. A San Francisco brand established in 1948, Swensen's is proud of giving you the THE ULTIMATE SUNDAE EXPERIENCE!
If you love TOSH (or The Old Spaghetti House) and Grilla Bar & Grill, owners Chito & Lizzie Guerrero are also the people behind the arrival of Swensen’s in Manila! Genius move!
“Swensen’s has been a popular watering hole in our neighboring countries Thailand and Singapore. Knowing that most Filipinos are born with sweet tooth, as well as a discriminating taste for ice cream that is also value for money, we felt that Swensen’s will be a craze in Manila,” says Lizzie Guerrero, general manager of the group.

My DIY queen: Sarah T! :)
I ordered for their Banana Split, minus the nuts, because the recently-adjusted braces are giving me a hard time eating again. :P
Looks AND tastes so good! The banana is a great choice, perfect to neutralize the sweetness of the syrups and ice cream:
Sarah got this madness called a dessert:
And on top of all our individual sundaes, they also served us their famous mega sundae: THE CHOCOLATE EARTHQUAKE! Nakakalindol nga sa laki! Lol.

And yup, as my blog title goes (like the famous food blog) dessert came first for us! Had dinner afterwards in Pho Hoa...
Came to this affair in casual ensemble, since best in tambay lang ang peg ko that afternoon:

Captain America and Iron Man T-shirt - Folded and Hung
Black trousers - Human
Red shoes - TOMS
Round 2 of the Avengers that night with Pax and Angel. Can't decide if I'll go for the old-fashioned Captain or the Genius, Playboy, Billionaire, Philanthropist. Lol!
