Milky Strawberry Goodness from Seattle's Best Coffee Shop

I have always been a major fan of Seattle's Best Coffee's creamy strawberry milkshake even before the now famous article came out.

I've mentioned in an earlier post that my usual morning breakfast while I was still working was a steaming, hot mug of joe.  But, for the life of me, I could never bring myself to order a cup of hot coffee from any of the coffee houses that have popped like mushrooms everywhere.  Guess I just prefer mixing my own blend.

Which is the reason why when I order from a coffee house, I order anything but coffee.  And being a creature of habit, there are specific items that I consider the specialty of each and every coffee shop I enter, that of which I always order everytime I visit.

For Seattle's Best Coffee, I always order either their chamomile tea, for times when I feel really bloated; or their strawberry milkshake (Php160), for times when I want to indulge myself.  And nowadays, I find that pregnancy has indeed brought out my sweet tooth once more.  Oh the joys of pregnancy and their accompanying cravings!  =)

Unlike the other coffee houses selling similar products, I find the Seattle's Best Coffee version very creamy and tasty.  Others that I've tried tasted more like smoothies than milkshakes.

Seattle's Best used to include chocolate chips into their milky concoctions, a very nice surprise for chocoholics.  However, the last time I ordered this in their Mall of Asia branch, the chips were missing.  Don't know it this was an error on their part.  I hope they do retain the chips as this is what makes their shake different from the rest.

For those who still prefer their drinks with heavy doses of caffeine, there are a number of coffee-based beverages for you to try.  Take, for instance, their new offering -- the Caramel Heaven Frappe (right).

For the ravenous, they also carry a number of pastries and other gourmet treats.  But that's for another post altogether...  =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
