My Favorite Starbucks Drink

After ten years (exaggerated) of not having my favorite Starbucks drink, I got to taste it again and guess what--it's for free!

Last September, I joined Ang Trip ni Rizal's blog contest (view my post here) and although I didn't win the grand prize, the top 3 - 10 picks [which includes me :) ] were given a token each--either a Ang Trip ni Rizal coffee mug or a 200 pesos gift certificate to the coffee house of our choice. Of course I chose the gift certificate with Starbucks on my mind.

Come October, I received this package on my office address.

from Ang Trip ni Rizal via LBC

200 pesos worth Starbucks gift certificate
Finally! A few weeks after I received the GCs, when we went to SM North one Sunday to buy Mia's milk and other grocery items we dropped by at Starbucks and got a Vanilla Frappuccino and Chocolate Cream Chip Frappuccino. 
this is happiness :)
These two cost more than two hundred pesos (I had to add to the amount) but the happiness--priceless :)

What's your favorite Starbucks drink? Share :)

snack diaries #2

 i don't even know how it's called (either in tagalog or english) but i like it very much! any reader who can identify it? [thanks in advance :)]

anyway, its a rectangular bread usually three inches in size, purple on all sides but yellowish inside and sprinkled with dessicated coconut. yum! i had it when we went home in the province. strange, i don't see much of it here in the city.

snack diaries #3

Nothing beats a hot and satisfying snack during rainy days and when you say hot and straight from the pot, lugaw or rice porridge or rice congee comes into mind. One afternoon we had lugaw with hard boiled egg and fried tofu (of course with the usual vinegar+soy sauce dip). No, we didn't cook these... we just bought from the nearby lugaw vendor in our area :)

How about you? What food do you cook or buy during rainy afternoons? Share :)

snack diaries #1

Hello there my dear readers! I know I haven't posted that much lately more so about food so now with a little time, I tried to post some food related posts but please bear with the blurry shots i'm just using my phone's camera okay... Let's start:

One afternoon at the office here's what I got for snack from a 711 store near our office: Mayfair Pralines, Zest-O orange juice drink, Cloud 9 and chocolate and marshmallow topped Mister Donut twist (sorry, can't recall how it's really called). Did't cost me much but made me satisfied for the rest of the afternoon.

Stay tuned for some more food related and of course happy posts... thanks :)
