Bamboo Spoon Yogurt Review

I stumbled across this place when I was on lunch break with a co-worker about two weeks ago. We were eating at a restaurant a few doors down from Bamboo Spoon. As we were leaving the restaurant I notice there was a yogurt shop in the same shopping center. Everybody should know by now that I'm a huge fan of frozen yogurt. I love to try different frozen yogurt shops and usually stick with those if I like them a lot. I told myself "one of these days I'm going to try out this place."

The cool thing about this place is the fact that it's not too far from where I work, and the hours I work I can fit in time to go before I start my shift. On a Thursday, I decided I'm going to check out this place. I go inside and I was like, "WOW" the decor is nicely decorative, more like environmentally friendly and it was clean too. This is a self-serve yogurt shop which I like, I was given a sample cup to try some flavors before I buy. I sampled Chocolate Nut, Snicker Doodle, and Sugar Cookie; all three flavors were to die for. The flavors are flesh and flavorful without leaving that aftertaste. There were more but I was on time restraints as I had to be at work real soon.

All in all, I ended up mixing Creamy Chocolate and Sugar Cookie. They have a lot of toppings to choose from, I think they may have more toppings than Pinkberry. I got strawberries, pineapples, granola, Andes candies which made me have stars in my eyes, I LOVE Andes mints especially in my frozen yogurt. And at the last minute I couldn't believe my eyes, I saw that they have NERDS candy. NERDS candy!!! I LOVE nerds candy too... I'll have to definitely try that next time.

This frozen yogurt shop is a must try, I'm going to add this place on my favorite frozen yogurt shop list. I have a few favorites and this one is one of them, I'll be back Bamboo Spoon.

Is Honesty The Best Policy?

I had a interesting conversation with one of my good friends; the topic of discussion was, if you are dating someone or considering dating someone that you are interested in, when is the time to be completely honest about already having a kid? or if you had a kid and you was dating someone would you tell them you have a kid or keep quiet until that person gets too involve with you? I personally want the person that I'm dating to tell me they have a child. That gives me the option or choice to decide if I want to continue to date the guy and the fact that he has a kid/s or just not continue to see the guy. At least give me the option to stay or go, don't wait until we are involve and BAM!!! I get hit with the "Oh by the way, I have a kid" I rather for someone to be completely honest about something so important as of having a child in their life.

From previous experiences, I was fortunately enough to know in the very beginning that the guy have a kid or kids, more than one experience. In the past, I chose to stay because I knew what I was getting myself into. But in my friend's defense, the person he knows had a reason as to why she didn't bring it up in the beginning, but I just think it's best to let that person know in the beginning you have a child. What are your thoughts, is honesty the best policy when it comes to revealing you have a child?

The Possession Review

This movie kind of sparked my interest when I first saw the trailer for it a while ago. I thought maybe I can build the courage to go see it. Til this day I'm still scared of "The Exorcist" the original one with Linda Blair. I saw that movie when I was a kid and it still creeps me out, I think by far the most scariest movie EVER. Back to "The Possession" it's about a haunted box believe to have demonic spirit from the Jewish folklore trapped in it and if anyone gain possession of it causes bad misfortune and torment. This was based off of a true story that took place in 2004 when someone purchased this box on eBay. But in the movie the father and his two daughters (Clyde) Jeffrey Dean Morgan, (Hannah) Madison Davenport and (Em) Natasha Calis went to a yard sale and purchased a mysterious box, not knowing it had a malicious spirit trying to get out.

Em somehow managed to get the box opened and all types of stuff broke lose. The ex-wife of Clyde (Sephanie) played by Kira Sedgwick was racing to save their daughter's life and put the evil spirit back into the box. The movie had some slight funny parts to give it some depth instead of overwhelming the movie with creepiness. But it wasn't scary enough for me or had that scary factor to make me want to go to sleep with the lights on. I will say the creepy part about the movie was this was based off a true story and the fact that things like creepy boxes do exist and was purchased on eBay. You can look up the complete story for yourself but I think I'm going to stay away from that one. Even the picture I posted here kind of creeps me out a little.


The Expendables 2 Review

This movie was a joy to watch just like the first one. It has almost all the characters from the last Expendables except for Mickey Rourke. This movie also added some new good characters into the mix. One of my favorites is the one the only Jean-Claude Van Damme, which was the villain in the movie. The infamous Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth, Nan Yu, she ended up joining forces with the group later on; Arnold Schwarzenegger was actually in the movie and not computerized in like the first one. The Expendables 2 had the same cheesy lines like the first one, there was still a lot of shooting, blood splatters, explosions and action-packed sequences.

There will be no spoiler alerts here, in my opinion this movie would have been completed if Steven Segal was in it; All the older action superstars in their prime kicking butt and taking names later. I enjoyed watching this movie and I'm going to get it on DVD when it comes out. If you seen the first one and like the action, shooting, blood spats and cheesiness, then go see this.
