If you follow me on Instagram (and if you dont.. why not?) you know that I'm obsessed with ice cream. I'm somewhat an ice cream snob... I say somewhat and really mean a total Ice Cream snob. I mean life is too short for the run of the mill ice cream. As wankery, as it sounds, small batch is the best. These alchemists of ice cream really know their craft and use the best ingredients. Most importantly they have a major passion for the creamy stuff and they are all bloody lovely people too!
I have always had a soft spot for tennis. I took it up as a kid for two reasons. Being obsessed with the upturned collar Lacoste polo shirt and deck shoe wearing preppy brigade it was the ONLY sport that I could play and play the part of the prepster. The other reason i played tennis was that because of my general husky size I was recruited by the football team to play and the last thing I wanted to get battered around on a grassy muddy field by a bunch of other adolescent kinds. So, tennis was my way out, my escape, my pass to avoid broken bones and bruised eyes and feigning a macho persona.
It’s no secret that I love ice cream, so you can imagine how excited I get when Gelupo launches new flavours. The latest is a tour through the flavours of Asia. They take us from China to Japan and Thailand to Malaysia. Some seriously incredible flavours like Yuzu, Thai Sticky rice and Mango, Pandan & Coconut, Black sesame and Matcha. There is Red Bean too, though I’m not a fan of red bean at all. The most adventurous flavour is Durian (oh the honk) which I can assure you is an acquired taste. The flavours are on till Thai New Year in mid-April.
