A Singaporean Starbucks® Christmas

There's just no escaping Starbucks® even here in Singapore.  Not that I'm complaining, most especially since it's time once again for them to be offering their special annual Christmas beverages to the public.  Yey!

Starbucks® Christmas beverages

A yearly favorite of ours is their Toffee Nut Frappuccino (S$6.20/Php205* for a tall serving).  Espresso with milk blended in with creamy toffee and nuts.  Sounds sinful, right?  But it tastes so heavenly.

A new must-try for us is the Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino (S$6.80/Php225* for a tall order)Espresso coffee with milk and white chocolate topped with whipped cream, cranberry syrup and sugar.  I was actually surprised that I liked this.  The cranberry had me a little bit skeptical but it's not as bad as I thought it would be.  It's actually pretty good.

And since the Little One isn't allowed any caffeinated drinks yet, she's just as content with having an order of their Belgian Waffles (S$3.60/Php119*).  A piece comes with a pat of butter and strawberry jam.

Simply decadent...

P.S.  You might be interested to know that they don't offer the Starbucks® planners here like in the Philippines.  Same with the other coffee shops.  Wonder if it's just a yearly thing in our neck of the woods.

Calling all overseas friends, is this same in your current locations?  J

  1. I love the Toffee Nut Coffee!!! :) I guess Philippine franchises want to boost the sales hence the planner mania. Anyway, it works. :P

  2. Merry Christmas! :)

    Maybe they're not to keen on the thought of collecting stamps then getting a planner. We go gaga over that yearly :)

  3. I'm not a Starbucks-y kind of girl, because I always want to go against the grain. I don't want to go where the majority go :). Then again, that's just me. But I must admit, I do occasionally get sucked in by all the commercialism, and have a tall mocha frap or two. And those waffles... I remember loving those back in the day. Ok, maybe I'm a Starbucks fan after all :)

  4. I like the sandwiches and pastries offered by Starbucks. Not much of a coffee drinker of these shops since I prefer mixing my own. =)

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!  =)
