My Favorite Summer Treat

I scream, you scream we all scream for “Gelato”! Haha! If you want to beat the summer heat, you should try a scoop of gelato. I am sure you will not regret forgetting your strict diet plan for a moment like this.

As most of you know, “gelato” is an Italian-style ice cream. While the ice cream is made of cream, the gelato is made of milk. But don’t get me wrong, since gelatos are churned less than ice creams, they tend to taste creamier and richer because of the much denser texture.

You should go to La Casa Gelato if you want the ultimate gelato experience in Vancouver. They are open 7 days a week and serves 238 flavors! Yup, 238! You can even try every single flavor for free! Unbelievable, right?

Whenever my family and I go to La Casa Gelato, especially in the summer, the store is always jam-packed. You will mostly see people who are having a hard time deciding which flavor they want, and I admit I am one of them. It is definitely hard to choose if you have 238 options. But one thing I noticed was that I always tend to get the pistachio flavor. Maybe because it was the first gelato flavor I ever tasted, and to me, it was like “love at first taste”.

Four Seasons

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to experience 4 different seasons in one year?

Growing up, I was only able to experience 2 seasons; either crazy rainy days or humid sunny days. The Philippines is known to only have 2 seasons: the wet and dry season. This is actually tiresome since you always need to use an umbrella whenever it’s raining or even when it’s just sunny. Yes, you heard it right! Most Filipinos use umbrellas to hide from the sun, only because we do not want to get darker skin tone.

It was Autumn 2014 when my family and I moved to Vancouver, Canada and I was so excited to finally experience 4 different seasons in one year. Moving to a city with one of the best climates in Canada was just perfect; not too hot and not too cold.

I waited the whole year round just to capture these 4 scenes; autumn, winter, spring, and summer. And it feels so great to finally share these photos with the whole world!
