How to Make Ice Cream In 5 Minutes

Let me tell you about some projects. Some projects are easy enough to make. You have the art style. You have the technical skills for it. But sometimes, you DON'T have the information and that's what makes the project drag on forever.

This is one of those kinds of projects. I have to make an infographic. That's easy enough. I want an attractive looking infographic. Got it. But what's it about? Oh, yeah, about that...

I saw this infographic about the content of different coffee selections(the ratio of milk, sugar, coffee). If your into infographics you have probably seen that one already. So, I was inspired by that so I opted to go for food. At first, I wanted it to be about cakes but I couldn't come up with a concept that gives  information about cakes without highlighting one kind of cake and making an infographics that looked like it came from a recipe book.

After hours in the internet, I finally decided on ice cream. But what about it? I searched about the different flavors in ice cream since that was one place to start. And guess what I learned. There's actually a whale-flavored ice cream in the market. And guess where it's made from. Hmmm. Still haven't guess it?

It's made in Japan.

Yup, the Japanese really had a lot of  money and time in their hands. Not only do they have whale-flavored ice cream, but also ramen-flavored, shrimp-flavored, beef-flavored. Any flavor you can think of! Even caviar-flavor ice cream. (And I thought kimchi-flavored chocolate is weird.).But after browsing it all, I thought of one thing. No BALOT-flavored ice cream....What a shame...

Anyways after the tedious search for a good concept, I finally decided on "How To Make Ice Cream in 5 Minutes". 

Because humankind can create many flavors but nothing beats VANILLA ice cream.

Hoorah Monde!

I have just created a wordpress blog but I found out that there are many limitations so with some persuasion from a friend.J I switched to blogspot.

I have been mulling over making a blog for months now.

I finally did it! Hoorah for me *claps please*

That was the easy part though. Hopefully I will find the discipline to regularly update this blog. I remember sometime in college that I attempted to blog in Well, I can't remember that blog now, let alone the email address I used for that one.

So...This blog will also serve partly as my online portfolio. About time I got one, I say. I'm already 22 and I am already working as a multimedia specialist. (Note: this term is very misleading. I have background and knowledge on the multimedia part. The "specialist" part is the one making me wince. But no worries, I'm working on it.)

Maybe...maybe this will serve as my very own  

And no I'm not French. I just like the "sound" of the words "cherie" and "cerveau".
