The Magnum I Know

An email came to my inbox the other day, leaking the news: Magnum Cafe will open next Thursday in Grand Indonesia. One eyebrow was raised, all my reckoning was one and one only thing: that joy on the stick i called adult chocolate lollipop ice cream :)

I was right. The cafe is dedicated solely to this Belgian chocolate covered ice cream. Yea, that thing. That Magnum. The Magnum.

I remember a TV advertisement capturing this ice cream as part of a royal throne life, enjoyed only by those with royal luxury pleasure in mind. Since I read Paul I. Wellman's The Female and Pearl S. Buck's Imperial Woman, I like to picture myself living in one of those castles once in a while, so count me in, sista'.
