Keeping an indomitable spirit amidst uncertainties has been tougher than I imagined. The challenge to maintain high hopes together as a family has always been magnified to a greater extent that imposes requirement to keep the faith alive and burning.

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.” ~ Isaiah 43:2

In our most trying times, uttering prayers and remembering happy memories are the best efforts to melt our worries away.

Would you not be in bliss despite troubles, when you recall that once upon a time, you enjoyed Baskin Robbins at 31% off with your family?

And when the most important people in your life become happier than usual, nothing else matters.

Beautiful and delicious memories numb me and maintain my sanity.

Once upon a time, we chanced upon Baskin Robbins 31% discount offered every 31st day of the month in Queensbay Mall, Penang and availed a quart and a pint that we savored for more or less an hour. It’s ice cream overload, I know. The indulgence and its memories make me smile ear to ear in the middle of a family crisis that’s beyond our control. Gabby and Tina chose a handpacked quart of Cotton Candy in pink and purple swirls and Cheesecake flavors while I was delighted with handpacked pint of Very Berry Strawberry and Mint Chocolate Chip flavors and washed everything down with just water.

Sweet memories! 🙂




  1. Hi Doc Gelo I’ve been reading about your delayed salary on facebook and sure do hope you get it soon. I can just imagine how frustrated I would be if I were in your place. Magreresign nalang siguro ako to look for another job. Anyways, it’s good to see your faith remains strong inspite of the circumstances. God bless you and your family

  2. .. i think no one will say no to baskin-robbins. aside from the classic praline ‘n cream, mint chocolate chip flavor is also one of my favorites and i’ve tried their sherbet which can melt my blues away. 🙂

    1. Baskin Robbins was just on promo the day we went to the mall, so we wolfed down! 🙂
      Isn’t Chocoloate Mint Chip heavenly? I’d like to taste their Coffee-flavored ice cream next.
      Haagen-Dazs’ version doesn’t disappoint; I think the same goes to BR.
