Oodles of Noodles Don’t Disappoint

less Filter, which has taken TikTok and the makeup indus-
try by storm. An alternative to this $46.00 product with

the same glow, would be the E.L.F Halo Glow Liquid Filter,

(Above) Following a year of development, the Filipino ice
cream parlor, Sampaguita, finally opened its doors on

Colonial Drive at the beginning of the new year. Sam-
paguita, translating to Arabian Jasmine, is the national

flower of the Philippines, and is used in herbal teas
and remedies. The restaurant is the sister store of The
Greenery Creamery, and with 12 Filipino-inspired flavors,
Sampaguita almost serves as a sweet gateway to Filipino
cuisine. I visited during its soft opening. Even though I
arrived fifteen minutes early, the line already stretched
past two of its neighboring stores and, by the time
Sampaguita opened, past the block. Selflishly, I hope
the demand stays (I could do without the line though).
Sampaguita, in all of its trendiness and retro interior,
provides much needed representation in an area teeming

with other Asian restaurants.

picked up my finished candle and headed out, I reminisced about the experi-

light my new candle for the first time. Photo by Alyssa Wiboon.
