Cielo Dolci - Interesting Flavors

"People nowadays are looking for something with an edge, they are always searching for something different...."

That was my statement few weeks ago when I was talking to my boyfriend. I've always notice that as years gone-by, we are looking for the edgy and differences not only in fashion, but also the food or gourmet that we consume. Last week in my window shopping-spree in Paradigm Mall (in Kelana Jaya, Petaling Jaya), it once again confirmed my statement.

We were about to to leave the mall, and we passed by a gelato shop name "Cielo Dolci".

"Cielo Dolci, pronounced as “ceh-lo dol-chee” , means heaven’s dessert, in Italian. It embodies the very essence of our Dolce Freddo Artigianale (artisanal frozen desserts). We handcraft our Dolce Freddo with much passion; creating heavenly flavours with cloud-like smoothness. Fusing Italian techniques with local flavours, we bring you the best of both worlds."

I am very very adventurous when it comes to food, the weirder and out of the earth they are, they more I would LOVE and WANT to try them!! I got all excited when I saw their daily special written on their board - Salted Calamansi, Nasi Lemak, and Cempedak! Finally, some gelato flavors that gets my palates all excited!

Whacky daily specials ^^

Without a second thought, I requested to have a try on their nasi lemak gelato. I must say, who ever thought you  can have savory in dessert, and personally, it tastes weird but in a good way! Hey....I'm not the only one that thought so, judging by how fast the gelato is finishing, I would say there are definitely a lot more people that find this flavor interesting. The moment I put the tasting spoon inside my mouth, I could taste the aromatic sambal (for those that not sure what's "sambal" is, it is a cili paste that is usually used as a condiment), anchovies, and toated peanuts. All these one of the kind flavors in cold gelato!! How whackyis that??!!! ^^

I myself thought I would order their Nasi Lemak, but due to my extreme curiosity, I've decided to try out their other flavor - Salted Calamansi. I was kind of worry that the calamansi going to be too sour, so in order to balance out the potential acidity of the gelato, I had it with their Mango Sorbet, hoping that the sweetness of the mango sorbet would bring down the acidity a little. In fast, I made the right decision. The mango and calamansi go well together. Personally, the acidity will be too powering if I have the calamansi solely, and the mango sorbet will be too sweet for me if I did pair it with other flavors.

Hey folk!! If you are one of the adventurous foodie, go to "Cielo Dolci" in Paradigm Mall (located at the LG, opposite Papparoti).


Hoodia P57 - Slimming Pills

18:35 becky-wong 1 Comments

Recently I have been researching on a few slimming/diet supplements, and I've heard of the name "Hoodia P57". I went online to do some research on this "Hoodia P57", and found out that it works as a appetite suppressant. As quoted from their website :

".......It contains a compound called, "P57," which is a molecule that is said makes you feel full. The P57 molecule is estimated to be more potent than glucose in sending the signal to the brain that tells your body it is NOT hungry......."

Also, on their website stated that the consumers would not experience the following:
  • No Shakiness
  • No Stomachaches
  • No Headaches
  • No Come Down
  • Non Addictive & Non-Habit Forming

    I was actually actively looking and HUNTING for a slimming/diet supplements that REALLY work!! I have been going to gym (well....sometimes on and off due to laziness and work and some others errands....), however, due to my appetite my weight just doesn't seems to be under control, and I'm starting to grow unwanted fat at unwated areas T___T. Hence, when I came across this products I went on to do further research and I've seen several good reviews on Hoodia P57. Without second thoughts, I bought some to try for myself and my bf too! I've been taking one pill per day for almost one week, and I must say, I do see results. Especially around my tummy area, I've definitely lost some fat at my tummy area. I was excited to find that I'm able to find into certain pants a bit easier!!

    With all these results going on, I've decided to do slightly more research on the pills. Out of my expectation, I found an article from the FDA website. For those of you doesn't know what FDA is, it stands of US Food and Drugs Administration. FDA will examine and re-examine on all the drugs that are going into the market and/or drugs and food and others that are already in the market. Their purpose is to make sure the food, drugs and products going into/and or already in the market are safe for the consumers, and they do not contain any harmful ingredients. OK! Back to what I was saying earlier, I saw an article on the FDA website warning the consumers NOT TO CONSUME these pills, as it contains undeclared drug ingredients, that will may be life threatening. I was shocked and kind of in a dilemma now. My sane side is telling me that I SHOULD STOP TAKING THE PILLS - even though they really work on me, but my crazy side is still struggling, maybe is okay if I just finish what I've bought.

    Haizzzz.......... Conclusion, I'm still figuring out what should I do to my remaining pills. Why not you readers be the judge of it? Should I continue with the pills? Or should I stop consuming them?


    Stalactites, Melbourne

    The weather has been pretty hot and humid recently, and this makes me miss Australia more!!! Been to Australia a few times, and I especially like their winter in Melbourne. Many of you would think that I'm mad, as whoever stasys or been to Melbourne would know that the weather there is very unpredictable. It could be chilly at one moment and hot the next moment. Well... maybe I am a lil crazy, because I miss the raining days in Melbourne during their winder time!! Hahahaahaha!! I think the hot and humid weather in Malaysia is really getting into me! LOL

    Apart from the cold weather, one of the thing I missed is a Greek restaurant in Melbourne called "Stalactites". It is located in Russel Street, and is a very famous restaurant in the city.

    My brother brought us there last year while we went for his convocation. The pricing there is reasonable and the food is YUMMY! We were there kinda early for dinner, but there was already a queue outside the restaurant, and we were waiting outside under the cold weather in the evening. *Cold~~~~~* Finally when we were being seated my stomach was protesting and I almost told the waiter to give us one each of their entire menu. I felt that I could have swallowed a cow! Luckily my senses were still there and I did not go that insane. We ordered their grilled lamb and chicken, mousakka and salad.
