Heavenly goodness of Avocadoria

Have you tried the new craze in town? Most likely, you’ve heard already of Avocadoria.ph which specializes in decadent avocado-based desserts by Chef Czarina.

I know for a fact that Avocados are different from other fruits. I know this because lately, I’ve been trying to watch what I eat. Most fruits are high in sugar and carbohydrates but not avocados. Avocados happen to be  filled with healthy, essential fats. I just love plain avocados with a little milk or as toppings on salad. Naturally, I was drawn to avocadoria!

Avocado Lover

I was given my first ever Dream Lover by Avocadoria and oh my! It’s really heavenly!!!Big chunks of avocado in avocado ice cream, with and almond nuts, tapioca pearls and with a dash of chia seeds and flaxseed. It is really good and yummy!

No wonder Avocadoria is all over the city!!! They recently opened at SM City Masinag and I’m just happy to be there and experience it for the first time.

They offer the following signature treats:

  • Avocado Ice Cream Cheesecake (P550/one tin),
  • Avocado Lover (P110/8 oz, P125/12 oz) which has avocado soft-serve, avocado slices, nuts, crushed graham crackers, flax, and chia seeds;
  •  Avocado Dream (P90), which is avocado ice cream served in an avocado shell and topped with pastillas
  • Avocado Shake which is made by real avocado with fresh fruit topping of your choice: avocado, mango, chico, guyabano and jackfruit.

From me to you: This one is a must try!

Quality Play Time at Kidzoona, SM City Masinag

Kidzoona formally opened its 3rd branch at SM City Masinag last Saturday, March 14.  This awesome fantasy park is a safe, entertaining and educational indoor playground. It provides an alternative fun-filled  environment suitable for both children and their families.


Kidzoona’s 3rd branch in SM City Masinag

The name Kidzoona is combination of the words “kid” and “kizuna“, a Japanese word that means the bond between a parent and a child. They have over 500 branches in Asia.  As a working mom, I am on the look out for avenues to spend quality time with my son and what better way than to spend time playing with him in this happy place.


Happy bonding time he enjoys; A picture taken at the parent’s lounge, Kidzoona

There are 6 play areas: The Role Play Town, Car Track, Ball Pool, Cyber Wheel, Toy Corner, and the Parent and Guardian Lounge. There are lockers where you can leave your shoes and there’s also a water dispenser available for thirsty kids and parents during play – how thoughtful. No wonder, my little Lukas loves Kidzoona a lot and I love it too!


TOY AREA – Where there are trains, puzzles, doll houses  and other educational and fun stuff!


CAR TRACK – A mini driving range


CYBER WHEEL – A favorite!


BALL POOL – Literally a wide pool area with balls and slides




Sliding away!


Inflatable slide – another favorite!
