Koska Chocolates from Turkey


Chocolate from different countries have unique flavors. I think it's due to the fact that manufacturers make them with regards to the locals' preference. Being a chocolate lover, I always try to sink my teeth into the Aztecs' masterpiece in all possible flavors.

First stop: Turkey. A colleague who visited Istanbul gave me chocolates from the country. It comes in bite size pieces and she gave me three. I love the design as it promotes Turkey's tourist spots. It's a nice way to get to know the country better.

The chocolate came in two variants: bitter and milk chocolate. I always save the best for last, so I ate the dark chocolate first then the milk chocolate last. Well, I haven't tasted both before, so I assume I would like the latter better. 

As much as it is called 'Bitter Chocolate', it was surprisingly lightly sweet for me. Sure I could taste the specific flavor of bitter chocolate, but there is a sweet contrast in it. Such feature is very rare with other bitter chocolates that I've tasted. This variant snaps at bite. I love it when chocolate melts in my mouth. For Koska Dark Chocolate, you have to wait for a few minutes before it melts.

The milk chocolate variant, on the other hand, has very soft texture compared to the bitter one. It is sweet but not the type that hurts the tonsils. Now that is rare! The color has the soft shade of brown, as seen in the picture below. The chocolate glides on the teeth at every bite. It is very creamy and it is definitely the melt-in-your-mouth variety.

I know it's not the typical me, but I would choose the bitter variant as the winner! :) I like it better! For the first time, bitter chocolate made me experience a unique flavor that's just outstanding among other brands.

It was nighttime when I ate the chocolates. I didn't expect it to have such a high caffeine content. The result? Ah, I had a hard time counting sheep, which made this experience more unforgettable.

Happy New Year, dear readers! The year 2019 comes with new wishes, new beginnings, and of course, new planners! Yay! I'm excited for all of it.

But anyways, I'm here to share with you a tool to help us face the days ahead.  I'm sure that some of us take life as it goes along. But there are others, like me, who have a planning personality. And lemme tell ya, it's really frustrating how things don't go according to plan. Most of the time, life doesn't make it go as planned. Ugh... But fret not!

Hahaha~ So for this post, I'm gonna share with you the Starbucks Singapore  2019 planner!  The 2019 Starbucks Singapore Planner

Lee Min Ho Mall Tour: SM Mall of Asia Leg

I still can't believe that it was just two nights ago (November 18, 2012), I saw Lee Min Ho in the flesh! As early as 5:30PM, I was already in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, joining the fans as we eagerly wait for his arrival. The crowd was very overwhelming. I bet some people waited there two hours earlier than I did!  Lee Min Ho is a South Korean actor. His popular dramas include Boys Over Flowers, City Hunter, and Faith among others. His prowess as an actor and his to-die-for looks are enough to make women go gaga over him -me included!  He is my favorite actor. I love his dramas. In the future, as I gain more skills, I plan to cosplay his characters, especially Johnny from City Hunter. He is the reason why I love Korean products like Etude House . Now, I have another brand to love... and it's a Filipino brand! I'm very happy that Lee Min Ho is the latest endorser of the clothing line, Bench .  Crowds make me uncomfortable. It was my first time to have ever attended

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
