Classic Ice Cream

21 Aug

One day, I entered an ice cream café and ordered a cup of coco-ice cream. When I tasted the coco-ice cream, there was a funny experience. Suddenly, this ice cream reminded me about my childhood. How come? Did you ever have the same experience? When you found ‘something’ that you didn’t see for a long time, it made you remembering about your activities in the past and you miss it so much. That’s what happened to me.

I remember when I was a child, my mom always fill out the refrigerator with my favorite ice cream, Manna Ice Cream, because she knew that I love this ice cream very much and so did my friends. After school time, my friends came to my house to eat ice cream together.

Manna Ice Cream is a local brand, and it was a famous brand. Every store used to sell this ice cream. It produces many kind of ice cream taste, such as chocolate, coconut, durian, strawberry, tutti-frutti, etc. Now, I can tell you that the taste of ice cream is so very ‘classic’ and so 90’s! Lol. Yea, when I tasted this ice cream, I remembered about that time. My little friends, my old neighborhood, my yard, and ‘pong-pong’, my cat…

Overall, I surprised to know that this ice cream still exist in this time, because for a long time, I didn’t see this product anymore. I know, there are many brands of ice cream products, and it might be tough in rivalry. The seller told me ‘Now, Manna Ice Cream only can be found at this place’.

    I love finding things that remind me of my childhood. Just the other day I found Mr. Sketch markers (those scented markers). I hadn’t seen them in years and this truly made my day. Unfortunately they are freaking expensive now and they used to be the “cheap markers” back them.

    Stopping by from the Thursday hop. Feel free to visit me at

    this happened to Anton Ego, a restaurant critic, when he ate the Ratatouille, a cake made by a mouse. Suddenly he flashed back to his kindergarten age, when his mother made that cake.

    Aku sih gak pernah ngerasa serperti itu, tapi pernah sekali waktu makan sup konro, di balikpapan, dimana aku hampir mukul meja makannya, karena sup yang bener-bener enak. I mean it!!! and only Rp 12,500.

      You’re right mas Playboy! For many times I watched that movie (Ratatouille) 😀

      Owya eloy, I still remember that, when we ate biting2an, unhealthy meal for kids (we knew that, and we don’t care about that :p) LOL!
      Well, for kids who read this post, please don’t do what we did…

    Toen ik junior high, ontmoette ik een meisje in mijn begeleiding die wordt gehouden in dat gebouw, en op valentijn dag gaf ik haar een Cadbury chocolade, en een ansichtkaart die hen ik te maken door mijzelf …. ahh zo’n herinneringen.

    Ik heb altijd al zul je een nieuwe schrijver, houd schreef … Sorry dat ik schreef in het Nederlands.
