Starbucks PH 2014 Christmas x 2015 Planner

Heya! Sorry for my long absence, guys. Time is a rare commodity for me nowadays. But no worries, whenever I wish for time to go slow, the perfect place to go would be a coffee shop. It's just fascinating to watch the skies, birds, and people pass by. I also write, read, or just stare at blank space with the invigorating aroma of coffee wafting in the air.

Speaking of coffee shops, my favorite place to go during the Christmas season is Starbucks! I love that place for two reasons: Toffee Nut Frappuccino and the Planner. The planner I can forego, but Toffee nut Frappe, not a chance! (^_^)

However, there is a new featured beverage this 2014: the Christmas Cookie Latte. The Peppermint Mocha and Toffee Nut are also available. Those two are the crowd favorites, eh? 

So on my visit at Starbucks a few days ago, I bought the newly featured drink. And oh, the plastic cup is specially decorated with paint strokes and it looks so festive, as well. Everyone... presenting the Christmas Cookie Latte Frappuccino! 

The Christmas Cookie Latte Frappuccino (tall size: PhP170)
It looks really good! Caramel drizzle and nuts rest on the whipped cream. The drink has a hint of caramel which complements the prominent taste of espresso. It is as sweet as a liquid gingerbread cookie! 

Look at all those nuts!
Along side my drink, I got the Chocolate Crepe Cake. It's a holiday featured cake and the name itself pique my curiosity. Crepe? Cake? Hmmm...


Christmas Chocolate Crepe Cake (PhP120)
This cake has layers and layers of crepe and something that tasted like condensed milk between the layers. Yummy! Everything is topped with dark cocoa powder and sugar. It's delicious, but I think it would taste better if it's paired with a warm and not-so-sweet drink. 


Look at those intricate layers! 
Since I bought a beverage, I was finally given a sticker card with one sticker. Hehehe~ I like the concept this year: Let There Be Bright


The sticker card

My first star! (^_^)

Complete the stickers! (^_^)
Completing all the stickers will give you a Starbucks 2015 Planner! Yay!


The Starbucks 2015 Planner in all colors

The brown planner is so well-crafted. It is my favorite in the bunch. It is so artistically designed and well thought of. I don't know about you, but the other colors seem boooooring! Hehehe~ I have a feeling that the brown planner will be gone first. :P


The lovely brown Starbucks 2015 Planner
The pages inside are beautiful in its simplicity. It features articles pertaining to coffee and the people. Here is the divider page of my birthday month of November. It is about your own favorite Starbucks drink. 


November month page
Planners are awesome! It gives you hope in foreseeing your plans for the upcoming year. Have you decided on what your 2015 planner would be? 

Woah~ All these thoughts for a time while in Starbucks. It's nice to relax, too. This season, I think my visits to Starbucks will be more frequent. Christmas Cookie today, Toffee Nut tomorrow! Yay! So, dig in...


Dig in, guys! (^_^)

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

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
