Spreading Cheers

Best Blogger Tips
Last Saturday, when the traffic was so bad, I was in Alabang going home from work. Seeing cars lined up bumper to bumper made me feel really unwilling to go home. But then I remembered that December 5 was the Cheer Party schedule for Starbucks ATC. Since I won’t be able to go anywhere with the heavy traffic for two hours, I decided to drop by and join.

I have been aware of the Cheer Parties for years, but I haven't attended any. It was all a matter of conflicts in schedule. But now, the opportunity came. I got there at exactly 5PM, around the time the party started, too. Such excellent timing! (^_^)

Ah~ For the first time, I wasn't bored in the queue. From the outside, I could hear a nice soulful music being played inside the store. Another thing: food samples were given. Yay! Here we have a featured beverage: The Christmas Panettone Latte Frappuccino.

The sample size of the Christmas Panettone Latte Frappuccino. Yum!

The baristas on site were very friendly and were all smiles. Oooh~ This "Cheer" Party really lives up to its name! One even talked to me while I was waiting for my turn. She asked if it was my first time to attend. She told me to expect happy things like buy one get one on drinks. I felt very welcomed. True, joy is contagious. *Heart*Heart*

I found out that some merchandise were discounted only during the Cheer Party...

Finally, I got to the counter. Since the buy one get one offer was available, I ordered Peppermint Mocha Frap and Toffee Nut Frap. And yes! I was alone so I gulped them all myself. Hehehe~

More happiness! I was given a raffle stub for a chance to win 2016 Planners. Lemme tell you! The prizes were gorgeous! There were drawstring bags, Starbucks card, jackets, and hoodies. I wanted the hoodie... but unfortunately, my lucky stub wasn't lucky enough.

Drinking coffee is great with music, right? I did tell you about an awesome music earlier. Here is a 30 second video of the live band singing "Santa Baby". They make you feel all Christmas-y...



The smiling baristas were very enthusiastic as they prepared drinks. To think it was such a busy night because the queue seemed endless. I was very happy when they agreed to pose for a picture.

Drinks! Drinks! Yummy Frappuccinos everywhere!

All smiles. (^_^)
More food samples were given out. It kept on coming one after the other. More Christmas Panettone Latte Fraps, Toffee Nut Fraps, cookies, and brownies.

Before I forget, what's the best token? A photo souvenir! The one at the party was a unique card magnet. 






After two hours, it was time to go. As I thought, the traffic wasn't that bad anymore. I went home full of happiness. Like the baristas, I want to spread the cheer, too! \(^_^)/. Merry Christmas, everyone!
