Finally! A Taste of happy lemon! (A Singapore Beverage Post)

Stands like happy lemon sprouted within the Metro Manila area seemingly overnight.  I'm actually still in awe at how many they are now, and the number just keeps on growing every month. 

Well, I may not always be a fan of tea, milky or otherwise (sorry, folks.  The taste just doesn't sit well with me.), but that didn't stop me from trying out their other non-tea based drinks.

happy lemon has actually been on my must-try list since it opened in the Philippines, specifically since I've gotten so curious about their Cocoa with Rock Salt Cheese drink.

Sure, I've had doubts before.  I mean, come on!  Cocoa and salt and cheese were, to my limited knowledge then, didn't sound like such a good combination.  But the calling of a mixture of sweet and salty tastes was just too much, so I succombed and finally got to try it here in Singapore.

Now you'll hear me singing a different tune (backed up with a choir of heavenly angels harmoniously singing with me too.)

I've always believed that the joy of eating (or drinking) is brought on by various, totally different elements that when combined, makes the sensation of taste so much better, adding up to a truly great meal (or in this case drink.)  For instance, I always like very cold ketchup on my hot home-made fried chicken, salty bacon with savoury pancakes and sinfully sweet syrup, and so on and so forth.

It's just like a taking a sip of happy lemon's Cocoa with Rock Salt Cheese (which, by the way, costs S$3.50 here or approximately Php115*)  You get the sweet cocoa with hints of the salty uhmmm... salt and cheese.  *Sigh*  Heavenly!

Nowadays, rarely does a visit to ION Orchard mall ever complete without me buying a cuppa.  Hay!  Sheer bliss.  Now I know how Michy of [i am a dekaphobic] feels.

Another interesting drink to try is their Lemon Pineapple with QQ Jelly (S$3 or Php99*).  Tastes surprisingly like Del Monte pineapple juice with nata de coco bits.  Mmmmm....

So totally addicting and bad for the waistline.  J

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!  =)
