Review of Olivio Gelato




I had totally forgotten about the existence of Olivio Gelato until I was in the area last Saturday and this girl was walking past with a green cup. Oooh, I need myself some cold relief too, as it was a hot, hot, morning. Leaving my mom in the queue for banking services, I zipped through the crowd straight to Olivio.

The selection was rather pathetic, several of the metal bins were empty still! Whatever was there looked suspiciously like another chain's. So I tried to pick the most unique one to Olivio. Strawberry gelato waved at me, with a stick that stated "No sugar added". That sounded healthy enough and I was sold. Alas, the gelato was frozen hard and the skinny server don't seem to be able to push back the gelato into the cup. So if you see the next picture, there was obviously a huge cavity left unfilled! I felt a tad jeeped but oh well.

The taste was alright. It was sweetened with fructose (isn't that still a type of sugar??) but was not overly sweet. The gelato was surprisingly smooth for a fruit-based one and had bits of strawberry jam. Olivio will do when I crave gelato while in that area. Else, I'll probably go to the cafe nearby that has novelty flavoured homemade icecream.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
