[Review] Chocomint Frappe from J.Co

I visited the J.Co store in Makati and tried something new. I wanted donuts too but the queue, as usual, was long. I wanted something sweet so yogurt was out of the list. That left with only the beverage line! The Chocomint Frappe (PhP150) got my attention and so I ordered it. My purchase came in with a free Glazzy donut. Yay! So I didn’t miss out on savoring a J.Co donut that day. I don’t know the duration of the promo, though.

Unfortunately (or fortunately), the City of Makati forbids the usage of plastic cups. So we can’t see how the Chocomint Frappe looks like for real. However, the J.Co paper cup and the graphics on it is so cute, it makes you want to say “Awww..”. 


Cheers! 
Only the whipped cream and the chocolate caviar topping is seen on the drink. It is a thing of beauty, too. 

Does it look yummy or does it look yummy?
Let me say this, the whipped cream is thick and fully charged. Unlike in another popular coffee shop where the whipped cream is weak. I like J.Co’s better. It is much more flavorful and thicker.  Throughout the course of time, it never melted and I had to put in some effort to mix it with the drink. But if you prefer, you can eat the whipped cream alone, too. :)

The Chocomint Frappe drink is delicious! It is creamy and you can taste the sweet flavor of the chocolate as well. There was only a hint of mint in my drink. The mint flavor is not readily tasted and it leaves no cooling sensation in the throat. I like it that way. The coolness doesn't stay long, too. I guess I prefer more chocolate than mint in my drink. 

I think this one has crushed cookies as one of the ingredients because I saw some adhering to the sides of the paper cup. This added texture and sweetness to the drink.

This drink tastes like Christmas! With the season getting near, I think I have found a new favorite. But year round, I don’t have to wait for Christmas as I can drink it anytime!

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
