Spreading Cheers

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! (^_^)
 
The Starbucks Cheer Party at Alabang Town Center

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!

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

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
