Sometimes, we just need something sweet to end our meals. MAGNOLIA just upped the game by bringing out the new GOLD LABEL ICE CREAM. As Filipinos gather around the table during this season of giving, we can't help but have our sweet endings. MAGNOLIA really did a number.

What makes MAGNOLIA GOLD LABEL ICE CREAM different from others would be that they are made with REAL CARABAO milk. This makes the ice cream creamier and healthier. Natural and smooth, these ice cream flavors are just perfect.

Just last October 26, 2021, there was quite the reveal. Different talents from the industry came out and showed their support for the new ice cream line. Marvin Agustin, Happy Ongpauco-Tiu, Megan Young, Alden Richards, and even Hidilyn Diaz were there. They talked about the new flavors. The new flavors were: Choco Peanut Butter made with Skippy, S'mores, Tablea Yema, Rocky Road, Taro White Cheese, Avocado Macchiato, and Mango Dark Chocolate.

Aside from having a huge collection of premium flavors they came out with a couple new ones. Quite intriguing that I really want to try them all out. Remember, all these are all natural without artificial flavors.

A 1.3 L tub of the new Magnolia Gold Label Ice Cream for only P295 starting November 1 to December 31, 2021. They are all available at your nearest supermarket or grocery store.

I know what you're thinking. How come there's REBELS on the endzone. That's the name of the College Football team over at UNLV or the University of Las Vegas. But, let's not really dwell into that. We're here to check out the Allegiant stadium. It's the stadium specifically built for the NFL team RAIDERS. Also known as the DEATH STAR, this place is just humongous.
On no event days, ALLEGIANT STADIUM TOURS are scheduled. When you visit, you could park for free. Better to book your slot a week or two out in their website so that you could pick a time. If not, you might be able to get a walk in slot or you could just visit the official team store. (If you do the tour, there's a discount for whatever you buy at the store).

So when you enter the north side of the stadium, the store would greet you. Just follow the sign to the left side and enter up the escalators to the receiving area. There, they will give you lanyards and you could buy a few refreshments and wait for everyone in your group.

Once everyone is there, you would be accompanied by a couple of staff. Remember, this is a walking tour so wear comfortable shoes as it will roughly take an hour or so to get around. They will then bring you up the escalators to a landing where you will see the torch. The glass panels facing the strip actually opens up. Plus, the standing area's table has wireless charger for your phone as well.
The tour would then lead you to a hallway filled with art works and also towards the coveted suites. Unfortunately or fortunately, this is were all the good stuff starts. It's here that you get access to places that are off limits during events and game days.
On the way, you could see famous paintings that were collected just for this stadium. Aside from that, there are areas to buy some refreshments and even the press center.
Speaking of suites, we were almost this close to the 50 yard line but was unable to enter because they were renovating it. Instead, we had a peak into one of MGM's suites on the 45th line. Bummer.
Once you enter, you have access to private washrooms, a bar, tables and chairs plus flat screen tvs and other things to pamper you.
If you really want to see the action, there are stadium seats that are accessible in those suites. The only thing that's quite unique though for the owner's box would be these white chairs. Theirs are the only ones that have a different color from other suites.
Afterwards, you get to see the Champions club were the VIPS could mingle. We just passed through the twitch room, and was led to the Raiderettes locker.
The press room was up next but we were shown the trophies that were won by the raiders. Here, we watched a film for a good 5-10 minutes. We were able to relax our feet as well.
Just through a couple of doors, we were led to the locker room. The locker room was really spacious and modern. Each player has a digital lock box for their belongings as well as other stuff.
Here's me with a closer look at one of the lockers. Derek Carr is the current quarterback for the Raiders.
Aside from the locker room, we passed through the medical area of the team. They have an xray and even a cold and hot jacuzzi.
Would you believe that some of these tubs have moving "treadmill" for the players to walk on?
The field itself is quite unique. Since the Raiders play their games on natural grass, they had to "train" the grass in. What you see here would be the cement flooring with astro turf for the Rebel's game. The Raider's has an automated "train like" system that's 4ft high that would allow their grass field to be brought in from the outside. Talk about expensive.
Just behind those white doors would be the grass area were they let them absorb the sun. There, they are taken cared of.
From the bottom, you could definitely see the top. This is the view from the field.
It's just amazing how money could be spent on such a thing.
And another look on the other side.
After the tour, you're given a discount at the store. Also, if you chose to get the tour with the drink add on, the staff would lead you back to the trophy area to enjoy your beer and buy some snacks.
If you ask me, it was worth it. A little expensive but quite nice if you think about all the access you get.

Kenny Rogers just went above and beyond by introducing some healthy options. They partnered with BEYOND MEAT to provide some plant based dishes for you picky eaters.

This time, they offer a burger and a mashed potato that's made with or partnered with BEYOND MEAT. The burger itself is a genius piece of meat. If no one told you that it was plant based, you won't really know. They could have made the bread better but it's all good. The ingredients were pretty fresh. So, that's a plus.

I could definitely say that the burger could pass for the "real thing". If that's not something you're into, you might want to try the mashed potato version. Their packaging of it was kind of genius! The dishes are priced at 295Php each. A little pricey but it's definitely healthy.
You could head on over to your nearest KENNY ROGERS or give them a call at 8-555-9000. is also available if you're an online person.

One of my favorite places to visit would be Taiwan. I've been to the place probably more than 5 times already and it never gets old. One of the most popular restaurant from Taipei would be Din Tai Fung. What started in the Da'an District, this restaurant has been a global force with a number of franchises all over the world.
Since this is Las Vegas, they try to showcase everything here. More so they brought this restaurant over to the ARIA Hotel. They opened to the public in 2020 and never looked back. Once you enter, you are greeted by the dumpling making kitchen. You could see and take photos of chefs making the soupy dumplings or xiao long bao.
Since this is Las Vegas, the place is hyped up. With decors and high ceiling, they make sure that everything is worth your visit. As with any famous restaurant, a reservation is a must. Because of covid, it would be best to make one a week or so before especially for weekends.

Just like any other DIN TAI FUNG restaurants, they give you a piece of paper where you check and write down your orders. Granted that it seems quite incredible to charge for extra ginger, I just went with the flow.

Since this wasn't my first time eating in a DIN TAI FUNG, I figured I let my friends do the ordering. They went with the go to choices of course. From the original xiao long bao, to the crab roe flavored version, and even some other dishes.

In all honesty, visiting DIN TAI FUNG would be perfect for an early snack before dinner but never for a full meal. The prices seems to be a little on the high side compared to other DIN TAI FUNG places I've been too. The dishes were just okay. To be honest, I still preferred other xiao long bao places because of the quality and quantity.
All in all, it was an okay visit. Nice to remember and experience Taiwanese dishes. Although, I don't think I'll go back anytime soon. Honestly, it was just okay. The service was great but the food was so-so. I don't know but it seems Chinatown would have been a better choice.
