Have you tried already Starbucks’ new latte products?  They recently introduced French Vanilla Latte and Dark Caramel Latte.  I recently visited one branch in Makati and noticed these 2 lattes.  I initially ordered French Vanilla Latte.

No need to add sugar.  This coffee is not sweet and somehow perfect during cold weather or when you just want to relax.
Incidentally, I met few friends that day on the same Starbucks place so I decided to try the Dark Caramel Latte.

Obviously this drink is sweet because of the caramel. I’m not really a fan of caramel drinks.  This is similar to their caramel drinks.  Not sure why it is called Dark Caramel.  You can have both of these drinks hot or over ice. Anyway, I prefer the French Vanilla over this drink.

Have you tried already these drinks?  which one do you like?

It was a fun a light experience to watch a musical place. Nice that a good friend invited us to watch the preview of Aladdin before it will be shown to the public. Held at St. Cecilia’s Hall in St. Scholastica’s College, Malate Manila. Aladdin is about a carefree boy and very respectful to his mother. Found a magical lamp because of his so-called ‘uncle’ and left him the dessert alone until he freed the Genie of the Lamp, brought him home and the story continues. The script writer made a twist to the original story of Aladdin from what we normally knew. Even the name of the princess was changed from Princess Jasmine to Princess Mona. Here are some clips from the play

Taking on the journey of discovering new places, culture, and food, my family visited Malolos Bulacan just to try this famous leche flan being served at Kulinarya ng Tisa. Located along Mac Arthur Highway, after the City Hall.  The place is just simple but is available for events.

Your regular crispy pata turned into kare-kare.  Love the taste of the peanut sauce.

Halo Halo Turon – 120

Your regular halo halo was turned into a turon.  Not a fan, though it tastes good.

Leche Flan Tagala – 280

Okay, this is their leche flan tagala.  The difference of this to the regular one is the pinipig which is placed at the bottom of the flan.  I love the combination of the pinipig and the flan as it adds texture to the dessert.

Over-all, this restaurant serves good food in a big serving (around 2 to 3 persons) and affordable price.  Would come back again for their leche flan 🙂

 

 

Baskin-Robbins just opened a few days ago in Central Square, BGC and since I haven’t tried it yet, I immediately visited the place together with my officemates.

Baskin Robbin

They offer 31 flavors such as Mint Chocolate Chip, Very Berry Strawberry, Jamoca Almond Fudge Chocolate Mousse Royale and Love Potion #31. According to them, Jamoca Almond Fudge is one of their best seller.

You can also build your own ice cream by (1) choosing 1, 2 or 3 scoops of your favorite ice cream flavor in a waffle cone or cup (2) choose from their 9 toppings (3) finished it with whipped cream, cherry and chopped almonds. A scoop of build your own ice cream costs Php139.00

I’ve been trying to find this the supermarket for so long. Good thing after months of going to the grocery, I finally found this Spam Tocino.

Spam Tocino has been out in the market for quite some time already and this is being sold for a limited time only. So, how did I eat this? just sliced a few meat, followed the direction to add a little water on the pan and let if cook there. The taste – hmmm I still like the real tocino. I cannot taste the tocino in this product 😀 I guess a few more slices will help me to appreciate this further 😀

Have you tried SPAM Tocino already? How did you find it?

In the past few weeks I’ve been seeing a lot of photos in Instagram about Yakult’s newest product. I tried searching it in 711 stores but it is not yet available. Gladly, during my weekly grocery in one of my fave supermarket, I finally found it. It’s actually Yakult light.

I’m intrigued as to the difference of this to their old one. Aside from the packaging (which is blue), the calorie content is lesser than 15 calories. As to the taste, it is still the same. A pack of Yakult light cost Php50.00 which is Php10.00 higher from the regular one.

Have you tried Yakult Light already? What can you say 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

I love joining photowalk as i am able to capture emotions while doing street photography. No matter how many times you visit a particular street or places, there will always be something new to capture, new perspective or new angle.

I usually pass by this street everytime we have our snack at Mcdonalds. This is different angle and view of Rizal Drive in Global City, Taguig.

More of street Life here.

Cafe France Espresso Booster

I love coffee and i love trying out anything that has coffee in it. A friend introduced this unique coffee experience called espresso booster. It’s crunchy espresso bits covered in dark chocolate. This interesting food find is from Cafe France.

I kind of like the concept of this as you can really smell and taste the coffee. It’s like eating real coffee beans 🙂 Don’t ask me if it will make you awake as i’ve tried a couple of these “coffee bean” like chocolate and i still feel sleepy :p  A bottle contains 50 pcs of “coffee bean” chocolate and cost Php99.00.

Have you tried this already?
