Backdated : Ice Cream Session

Today I thought I would catch up on my backdated posts. Else everyone will keep reading on outdated happenings! So I need to catch up *runs runs runs*. With that I also decided to post this up today… ah yes I know I barely post on Saturdays :P. This is exceptional because I need to chase after time!

Continuing from the previous post; we decided to go to Swensen’s for ice cream! Again for me haha! I can’t never resist ice cream :P.

On our way there, outside of Swensen’s there were displayed of lanterns made from recycled items.
The Largest Recycled Lantern!

All made from Mineral Bottles and CDs.

Closer View.

Nice right? I wonder how long it took them to make it.

Bird Lantern?

Made out of a lot of random stuffs, an old lantern, paper, CDs.

Plastic Lantern.


This lantern is made out of plastic containers and in the containers they put in some items to make the color shading. I think I saw in one container, a bundle of condoms (used or not I don’t know yea >.< ).

Paper Lantern.

All made from paper plates!

Which lantern attracts you the most?

Salt & Pepper.

Hubby was trying to be creative, taking this salt and pepper at creative angle. Do you think he made creativity? :P

Pistachio Ice Cream.

Our friends' order. Looks good, but I am not much of a Pistachio ice cream person.

Double Berry Tower.

Hubby didn’t like, thinks it is too sweet… now I wonder what ice cream isn’t sweet?

Our drinks.

A Peach (or was it Apricot?), and Apple Fizz thingy. Ah yes I forgot the name of the drink @.@ I only know the Apple hubby and I ordered was lousy. The Peach / Apricot is our friends’, theirs are nicer!

Well, this ends my post for the trip of while I was in Singapore in September 2009. Woah~ Took me a very long time before I managed to finish my backdated posts since Backdated : Dayflight. I hope you enjoy journeying with me throughout this time :).

Have a Great Weekend!

It sure is amazing how things are made from recycled products. Recycled jeans are used to make home installations and recycled bottles into a work of art like the pink and yellow lanterns. Such creative minds we have out there but hey, good for the environment, right? I have NEVER had a pistachio ice cream and I love pistachios! And that double berry tower sundae looks so yummy. You guys sure have good food across the pond! :)

I thought the paper lantern is a ferraro roche chocolate at the 1st look lol:D

pikey said...

It has been many years since I last ate Svenson.. mostly been Wall's or King's, LOL... or once a while, a Baskin Robbins.

Ayie said...

iamthewitch said...

I like the second plastic lantern display the most! Very elegant. :) And I love ice-cream! But I agree with your hubbs, I think Swensen's ice-cream is general is a tad too sweet compared to other ice-creams. :)

wenn said...

wow..i love ice-cream..

Dora said...

Those lanterns are very creative & that's a good way of recycling. Oh I love the ice-cream tower. I ate it@Genting Highland last time, so chilly!...

conan_cat said...

i love that lantern! for a recycled one it sure does look like a pretty nicely done one :D

levian said...

i like the one made from the plastic containers n stuff, but erm, probably not for one of "that" container. talk about recycling eh. :p but most of all, i like the icecream! you are right, the Pistachio icecream does look nice, made me wonder how it actually taste. oh gosh, it's early in the morning n i am already swallowing my saliva this hard. dang. XD

ladyviral said...

Rose : Oh yes... such creative minds ^_^. I would never think of using such to make though... I am a really unimginative person :P.

Good food? Well, I believe the grass is always greener on the other side haha!

ladyviral said...

Kelvin : Hahaha it does look like it XD.

ladyviral said...

Pikey : I don't go to Swenson's much too :P. Mostly Baskin Robbins. Haven't much eaten the King's or Wall's ice cream lately too.

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Better lighting? I need a better camera! Maybe a SLR :P. *hints to my hubby* haha.

Oh no worries about the email, I understand how it is :).

CP #? Eventually I fear it might not go through sometimes :/. I have a friend in L.A., she keeps having problem receiving my text. So, I am not so sure >.<;

ladyviral said...

BengBeng : I know hahaa!

Especially when there is so many of them~ Feels like it will never finish if we don't catch up haha!

ladyviral said...

witch : I love that one too! It is absolutely lovely ^_^.

Oh yes, it is true... I do recall that Swensen's used to have a very good ice cream.. but then it did get very sweet after. but my sweet tooth always overpower me :/.

levian said...

haha another drooling morning. somehow i suddenly thought of the chicken wings you photographed for the previous posts. oh dang! XD

ladyviral said...

Ayie : Oh not at all, hun. My friend and I have been texting each other a lot! Then sunddely one day, it is either she doesn't receive my replies... or I don't get her messages / replies. So it ended up like we kind of stop texting after a while.

ladyviral said...

levian : Hahaha! Lets hope we don't flood our table :P.

Chicken wings... I so forgot about it... now you mentioned it haha! XD

foongpc said...

Wow! Those lanterns are amazing! I'm now looking for Chinese New year lanterns made entirely from angpows! Do you know where I can get them?

foongpc said...

I love ice creams! But did not go Svenson for very long time! I'm happy with cheaper ice creams like Walls. Haha!

If Baskin Robbins, normally only eat it if available in buffets. Can't afford lah. Not loaded like you ; )

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Lanterns made form angpows? I thought those are self-made by the people?! Can it be bought?

Me loaded? No lah... once in a while.. we need to treat ourselves.. like you, you currently go travelling :). I can't afford that now... so ice cream is the best ^_^.

sunnymama said...

Wonderful lanterns and icecream too! I do like your husbands salt and pepper picture especially. Very creative. :)

ladyviral said...

sunnymama : Looks you're the only one love my husband shot haha :P. He like taking such shots somehow and hopes I do too XD.
