We all scream for ICE CREAM!!!


my ice cream monsters

I come from a family of self-proclaimed ice cram addicts. Whether it be an addiction for gelato, yogurt, popsicle or sorbet name it and one way or another me and my cousins are sure to love it! It was my destiny to marry someone who loves ice cream too (it was actually a requirement – kidding!). Naturally our children are addicted to the stuff too.



When the Korean ice cream craze started in Manila I was there on holiday so I got to share the joy of MELONA and MOCHI with my family.


Even Kris Aquino swears by their MOCHI

Months after I got back, I was looking for a store here to get my supply and with sheer determination I found 1004 mart, I’m not sure but I think it’s the only Korean grocery in Dubai. I tagged their website but it’s in Korean so unless you can read Korean… go ahead. But they do have a facebook page click here. They don’t only sell Korean ice cream they have all sorts of Asian ingredients you will not easily find at our local groceries here in Dubai.


On my last trip I experimented on some frozen assorted fish cakes which I cannot wait to try out. There are suggested recipes at the back so when I’m feeling up to it, I will try it out and tell you all about it.

Here’s a map I got from their FB page, in case you would like to visit.
