It is Nirvana

Nirvana with Pearls from Bon Appetea

If 2011 was all yogurt, 2012 is about milk tea. Well, at least the start of the year is. Market trends rapidly change from season to season. However, one thing is for sure, the healthy living concept is here to stay. So let me start with food, or comfort food so to speak. And let us start specifically with milk tea. 

I foresee myself suddenly visiting various milk tea stores in search of the best one. I am a sweet tooth so expect that I am more inclined to choose the saccharine. For this journal entry, let me start with the best milk tea I had so far!

The name of the drink is Nirvana and the store is Bon Appetea. My cousin introduced it to me some time ago. And I recently visited their brand in Better Living. The place, albeit small, is very appealing and relaxing. There were three tables for two and a mini reading area.

Nirvana, according to the official description, is Assam Black Tea and Winter melon. It costs PhP60 for medium and PhP70 for large. The drink doesn’t have black pearls so I had to add an extra PhP10 for it. I like my milk tea with pearls on it.

True to its name, it is literally heavenly from the first sip down to the last. Creamy milk, bitter tea, and the sweet honey-like taste of winter melon merge to give you that indulgent treat. The pearls are warm, with a hint of caramel. It is nice to give your drink an extra boost, right?

I would gladly recommend it! It’s so yummy! Two thumbs up!

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi
