Craving for more J.Co Donuts

It is a common scenario when you see a J.Co store serving a long queue. In fact, that is the sole reason why I haven't tried this raved about donut in such a long time. Patience is not one of my virtues. But my cousin brought a dozen of J.Co donuts home, and it was the first time to have tried it. Woah! I was so impressed by the play of flavors that I just had to be have the patience to visit a store!

I visited the J.Co branch in SM Megamall. Its location was hard to find. You have to go to Mega B and then, when you see a BDO branch, go out of the air-conditioned mall interior to get there. The place is called "The Strip", as it is lined with various restaurants.

I went there at 11 AM, and the queue was already long! I waited in line trying to keep myself busy by observing the people and the place! But it was the free, yes free, yogurt sample that the J.Co staff gave away which won my patience! Yay! I didn't know they serve yogurt too! It was yummy! Sour, yes, but not too creamy. The chocolate cereal topping added that much loved sweetness.

I finished the yogurt just in time for my turn to order. I chose one of the bestsellers, Alcapone (PhP42), as I wasn't able to try it in my cousin's bunch. But it was still a long way to the payment counter! However, the wonderful view was enough entertainment:

I ordered my Alcapone for dine-in. The place was nice! The play of orange, brown and yellow color of the interior contribute to a relaxing coffee shop atmosphere. Despite the high volume of people coming in, the place was not noisy as I thought it would. 

Now, time to get lost to my Alcapone! Actually, when I was on queue earlier on, I feared that they would run out of this. Almost everyone orders it! Thankfully, the J.Co crew had a lot of refills!

This donut is named Alcapone.
So here is my take on this beloved donut: it is glazed with white Belgian chocolate topped with almonds. The donut texture is very soft, which exaggerates the hardness of the almonds. The glaze is creamy and milky sweet with a hint of caramel. The overall sweetness is just right that I could eat it without the help of water! The flavor doesn't stay long on the tongue so it makes you crave for more! 

Ah yes! Time is definitely faster when you're having fun. I enjoyed eating Alcapone that it was gone in a snap! One is surely not enough. Better get two donuts for dine-in. Else, you would have to go back on queue again! 

Or you could take home the top six bestsellers (PhP230) and enjoy J.Co donuts with your family and friends...

So if before I wondered, why all these J.Co hype? Now it is clearly justified!

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

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

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
