Ice Cream Around the World You Should Stop By and Try

Hi everyone! 

Do you know that the 19th of July is actually celebrated as Ice Cream’s Day in the United States, thanks to their 40th president Ronald Reagan?

Well, I wasn’t aware of such a celebration day either until last month when I planned out my content calendar and found out this fun fact. As a result, I decided to invite some fellow bloggers to contribute their piece about their favorite ice cream around the world since my last collab post about instant noodles was quite a success!

It’s summer in most parts of the world, and ice cream always sounds like a great idea under the heat. But then again, who am I kidding? It’s still a good idea to enjoy in the winter too, so why don’t we start talking about ice cream around the world now on Ice Cream’s Day?

Why Visit Indianapolis?

Flyover states. They’re a real thing.

The title of ‘flyover state’ isn’t something to be proud of, but to some extent, it’s not as if some states can help it – you have to fly over quite a lot of the central states if you wish to get across America in anything resembling good time (and this will remain the case, at least until Elon Musk extends his network of tunnels from Las Vegas to the entire continent).

What You Could Get In Dunedin for $10 – Things to Do in the Waterfront Town

Hi everyone!

If I gotta be honest with you, publishing Minneapolis for the series on the day when George Floyd passed away made me a bit hesitant to cover anything about the United States these days.

I don’t want to get political, but neither I want to sound tone-deaf with the situation. All I could hope is that the event starts the revolution in the country. Coming from a third world country myself, I would see America as an ideal place to find the equality that we deserve. But then again, nothing is perfect in this world. 

So today, I will still cover a city in the United States for this week’s $10 series… And thanks to Chris of Wander Florida, we’re going to find out how far you could get with $10 in Dunedin. Continue reading “What You Could Get In Dunedin for $10 – Things to Do in the Waterfront Town”

Around the World with Instant Noodles: 15 Fascinating Hacks to Serve Instant Noodles in Various Countries

Hi everyone!

How long have you been staying at home for quarantine because of Coronavirus?! While some of you are probably busy trying to try new recipe because you’ve been blessed by astonishing cooking skills, some of us could only thank God for the invention of one thing: instant noodles.

Well, at least for me. I suck at cooking, and I’m proud to say that I’m a delivery queen. Honestly, I don’t think I’d survive if I had to get stuck in the quarantine 15 years ago when delivery service was very rare. LOL.

So anyway, this gave me an idea to compile various instant noodles around the world. And in this post, I’m collaborating with some other fellow bloggers to present instant noodles in various countries with some hacks to serve it when you feel a bit fancy.

I mean, I’m from a country where Indomie comes from. I don’t just buy them when I’m on survival mode. I buy them because it’s a necessity in my household. #asianproblem

And speaking of Indomie, my Indonesian pride kicks in when I found out that the brand is well-known in so many countries in the world. Even better, because they also have their own way to serve the noodles.
