The Magnum Myth

About a month ago, a facebook friend was gushing about how yummy Magnum was. Unfortunately, my online buddy didn't bother to post a single picture of this ohh-so-tasty Magnum. I never gave a thought about it, until my facebook/twitter walls were flooded with testimonials about Magnum. An officemate offered that Magnum was an alcoholic beverage; a champagne or wine or something bottled. Well, as for me, the only Magnum that i am aware of is a type of gun. So how could that be even ahmm...tasty? Until finally, when the commotion about Magnum could no longer be contained, pictures of it were just about everywhere. And so, I guess by now, we all know what Magnum is. An ice cream on a stick! Truly!

 But that is not the myth I want to tell you about. I am aware that Magnum has legions of diehards out there, and so before I start, I don’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings. And if you haven’t tried Magnum yet but are planning soon with high expectations because of its superb marketing and advertising, my apologies if I inadvertently happen to burst your bubble. But the hype about Magnum went just a bit overboard. Sure,  its chocolate coating is ok, tastes exactly like... well, any chocolate coating on any ice cream bar. Sadly, I didn't find it exceptional. The plain vanilla ice cream inside the choco coat was indeed smooth and creamy, but it was just that -- plain. Save for its consistency, there was nothing else unforgettable about the vanilla ice cream inside. Magnum actually reminds me of the good ole' Pinipig Crunch, although PC is more affordable without the unnecessary mega publicity... Ok, just to be a bit fair, Magnum doesn’t melt fast. I was able to take pictures  while it was still inside its glorious packaging. I snapped about ten shots from my camera phone until I got my desired image. And guess what? The ice cream was still intact from its chocolate coating; no spills, no drips, no drops...And that's about it folks, for i have just busted the Magnum myth. On a final note however, seems that everyone is still raving about it, people are queuing in supermarkets for their supply of Magnum, and just about everywhere,  when you see someone licking on an ice cream stick, you can bet it's a Magnum... Oh well, maybe it’s just me. But at 50 php per stick, I’m going to pass.

The hardest thing to do, as in anything I suppose, is to start -- starting your day, starting with work, starting a new relationship, and yes, starting a blog. I was browsing over tons of blogs here in order to help me get started. However, the more blogs I read, the more I get overwhelmed.  What on earth do I write here? As of yet, I have no idea. Maybe later on, I'd have one solid theme, or perhaps a topic I could very well write about. Maybe. Perhaps.
Be that as it may, I have to get this started. Otherwise, I might not even go past the background/layout editing part. As I have read and observed from the bloggers here, the proper way to start a blog is to introduce one's self... Ok then, here goes...I am probably the most unintresting person i know. I was born and raised in the city, the only daughter in a family of eight. Went to University, once aimed at becoming a lawyer, however, lost target. I pretty much enjoy going online, and I mean very much. I dont own a television, hardly read paperbacks or the papers, but i would always surf and browse about anything and everything I need via the internet. Recently, I discovered an interest in photography and thus, consider it as one of my budding hobbies... there.. having said that, I think I have already written my very first blog entry. That was the start i needed. hehehe. Thank you for dropping by. I'd be genuinely glad if someday, I could even be half as good as them bloggers. And yes, I mean YOU.  :)
