Raffaello Collection

Raffaello Collection

Hello Buddies,

Guess what? I’ve got my very first Ferrero Garden with Pistachio today! My collection is growing and growing. I’ve got hundreds of  pcs of the Raffaello Collection so it will last at least this whole year through. I know, many of you may think that they are everywhere and you can just buy it whenever you want to eat. But all  of the pcs I’ve got is gifts from my friends who really cares about me. Thank You!

My brother came home from Czech Republic the other day and brought me some gifts. The favorite one was a gift box, 15 x 15 x 15 cm, with Confetteria Raffaello! Confetteria Raffaello is a sweet manufactured by Italian company Ferrero SpA. It consists of an almond surrounded by a soft cream, wrapped in a coconut wafer shell and coated in coconut.

I didn’t know that he knows that I love Ferrero sweets. I have to admit and confirm that my brother is a stalker! He must have been listen to me and Stephanie when we are talking on Skype. I have told Stephanie to buy this confectionery at the TAXFree in weeks but she’s always busy. With a memory of a goldfish she used to forget it as well. Anyway, I’m still waiting for a few kilos of these from Stephanie. I hope she’ll find all kinds of colors because I haven’t try them all yet. Must be more than 6 different colors.

Geez, must admit that I’m addicted to chocolate, especially Ferrero sweets. Last night I ate some pieces of Raffaello in this gift box until I fell into sleep. In the morning when I woke up, my mouth was full of chocolate and coconut flakes, and the all the plastic bags were spread all over the floor.

Geez, guess what? It’s really crazy, I woke up at 6 pm today. I haven’t seen the sun today and I’ve been at home all alone the whole day. My brother is visiting his girlfriend in Czech Republic and wont be back until next year!

Today, I’m going to celebrate the New Year 2011 in Eskilstuna with my sister, My, and her family and Stephanie. Kim-Anh may join us as well if she can get a train ticket to Eskilstuna. I’m almost done with my costume which I’m going to wear at a NYE2011 party. I’ll post some photos of it when it’s done. Here’s a sneak-peak photo I took with my iSight on my Macbook. Sorry for the bad quality…

I spoke with Stephanie on Skype and get to know that she was at Hilton in Denmark, starving because there was nothing to eat at the hotel. I wanted to be mean and started to cook some food. Yeah, in the middle of the night. I found some fresh Tufo in the fridge and made some fried Tufo.

My brother couldn’t sleep yesterday so he woke me up at 3am and wanted to eat some lobsters. I went to the kitchen and started to make some garlic bread whilst one half of my brain was still sleeping. I was tired as hell but it was really worth it!

And of course, I finished everything with some Ferraro Chocolate. ^^,

I’m back in Stockholm again! Today I’m going to Ted’s place because it’s his 31st birthday party. I’ve been running around the city in a couple of hours with two other friends and looking for some gifts. One for Ted and another one for Trang-Anh since we decided to buy Christmas gifts to each other. I must admit that I’m very bad at coming up with what to buy so I hope they will like my pressies.

By the way, I went to Jensen’s Bøfhus for lunch and ate some steak (2 x 190g). Yummy, I love meat, almost all kind of eatable meat! You can get a 190 gram steak at Jensen’s Bøfhus for a really good price, 49 SEK (about 7 USD).  BUT the cheapest steak that I ever bought must be at Scruffy Murphy’s hotel  at Goulburn Street in Sydney CBD. That place looks a bit creepy but their steak is pretty fine and cost only 5 AUD (about 4 USD). As other restaurants the beverage is not included so you have to order one and the cheapest you can get is lemon lime and bitters which cost about 3 AUD.

Besides Marabou Schweizernut Chocolate, Ferrero is one of the best candy I had ever eaten! Got a dozens of those from my sister today. Yummy, this is one of the highlights of Christmas! Think I’ll finish them all by today, but I’m not worried because I won’t get any pimples. I haven’t tried the green one with pistachio in the picture below but I’d love to!

Ben&Jerry's Strawberry Cheesecake

Ben&Jerry's

I just realised that we don’t have any ice cream left in our freezer. I finished the last package of Ben&Jerry’s with Strawberry and Cheesecake flavor yesterday. But I won’t buy a new one this year because I’m really tired of all the ice creams in Sweden. You can rarely find a new flavor here.

Swedish people are eating roughly 10 kg of ice cream per person each year and there have always been the same flavors in recent years, no matters what brand it is. Strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, almond, melon … Come on! I want something more exotic! I’m not a really huge fan of ice cream but I’ve tasted many different kinds and flavors in other countries.

When I’ve saved enough of money I’ll buy an Ice Cream Machine and start to make my own ice cream (Hum.. Maybe I should put this on my wish list for Christmas?). Here are some of my favorite flavors which are really delicious. You didn’t even know that these flavors existed, right?
