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!

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
