i-Tea :)



i - tea. Of course, being the milk tea enthusiast that I am, I had to try
this new tea at Robinson's Galleria :) I ordered Assam Milk Tea with
100% sugar :) it costs P88 :) It was really good, it could be likened
to Bubble tea :) [but of course nothing beats bubble tea haha]

One tip though, choose 110% sugar because the 100% sugar tastes a bit
bland. Yes I know 110% seems too much but trust me, it will taste just right :)

Animo! :)


Few months ago I was complaining, why is it that UST, UP, and
ATENEO have their logos on a 100 peso bill and DLSU doesn't.
I was so happy to see this <3 I'm so proud of my Alma Mater.

Dear La Sallians, lets keep this as a remembrance of the
great education DLSU has bestowed upon us :)

ANIMO LASALLE!

Wallet Recession 16 : Look at me I'm sparklin' :)

Ever since I have started working, it has been hard for me to resist
food and clothes <3 hohoho, that's not good!:) BUT this was a gift from my
sweet boyfriend hahaha I gift that "we" picked out :))

Anyway, here's an elegant black dress that I saw at the SM Dept. store.
Yes, there are a lot of goodies there :) I have blogged about Red Head
before and this one is similar to Red Head :) 

Soiree is the brand name. I don't know how to read it :)
This dress costs 800! Not bad for something that looks this elegant <3
I got the shoes from Primadona  few months back :)
I think it costs around 1k :) Also not bad for
an elegant black pumps :) - A must have for every girl <3

Do visit this amazing clothing line at SM Dept. store :) If you don't
know how to pronounce the name, you can ask the sales ladies for
red head, they are usually located at the same area :)

Happy Shopping<3

ToastBox : Malaysian Cuisin :)


Toastbox is located inside BreadTalk at Trinoma. You know
the location of National Book Store? There's an escalator near that,
take that going down, you'll see a sign that says Bread Talk, go in,
there you'll see Toastbox :)

There are a lot of things I love about Toastbox. I ordered
the Laksa and one Soft-boiled egg <3 The Laksa tastes PERFECT <3
And of course the soft boiled egg is amazing <3

The Laksa costs around 200+ and the soft boiled egg around 20-30 for
2 pcs :) Yes it's kinda pricey but it's really yummy :)

If I recall well, I have tried their toast and "milk tea" and
it was a delight too!:) 


Two thumbs up!:)

I-Cup :)


I have been noticing the quirky adds that i-cup have been displaying
all over SM. I have been curious about i-cup ever since then. I had the chance
to try this out few days ago. I was at the food court of SM North Edsa and
it came to mind that i-cup is located there.

From what I remember, the name of my drink was Mixed fruit. The picture
was really deceiving because it looked like there were a lot of actual fruits
inside but reality was there was a very minimal amount of fruits in the drink.
Nevertheless, the drink was amazing! :) It tasted somewhat like pineapple,
but lighter. It was really refreshing :) I enjoyed it!:) It costs around P85 :)

Yep! A definite must try <3

Yummy Korean Food :)

Ever since I have tasted the yummy Bibimbop at Agno(DLSU), I have been
addicted to Korean food. I have never been a fan of spicy stuff but as I grew more
mature (haha) I eventually came to love spicy food  :)

I have to mention these two amazing "fast food" Korean food. 
First is Kimbob which is located at SM North Edsa Food court.
I tried their Kimbop and it was DELICIOUS <3 
*I know it should be eaten like traditional sushi (with soysauce),
but I like mine with chili paste, try it, it's yummy <3 )

Second is Kim n' Chi. I know this is more famous and I have been loving 
Kim n' Chi for quite sometime already but I have neglected to blog about it.
Their bibimbop and beef stew are both a delight! They have a lot of branches,
I'm not sure about the exhaustive list but I know they have a branch at
Glorietta 3, Robinsons Place, and Robinsons Pioneer :)

They are not that pricey, the price range for both stores are from 120-150 :)

Must try!:)

Tea Farm!:)



Tea farm! When I first heard the name Tea Farm, I envisioned a small
stand that sells milk tea but to my surprise, when we visited Tea Farm (which is along
Paseo De Roxas, Then you will see a building with Pillars on the entrance,
You'll also see a sign board that has the logo of tea farm there), it was a nice
cozy place. I ordered their Pearl Milk tea and a Peanut butter cookie. 

It was amazing! This is my newest favorite Milk Tea place! :) Also, if you
love peanut butter, then you'll love the Peanut butter cookies because it's
a delight:) And by the way, they also sell sandwiches and other food so
you could actually dine there while enjoying your yummy milk tea :)

Two thumbs up!:) A definite MUST TRY <3

Brew.kus :)

I and Mary were wandering off the back side of PhilamLife at Makati and
we came across Brewkus, since it was new to me and I was delighted to see the ambiance that
they have, I made it a point to try their drink :)

I ordered the Green Tea Milk Frost (I'm not sure about the exact name). It was really awesome! 
The top was creamy ( just like cheesecake, yum!) then the green tea was really delicious
too. I have been craving for this even days after I have first tried it.

One down side though, we waited for around 30mins just to get one drink :(
I hope that the service will be better next time!:)

Btw, they have a lot of yummy looking foods - that I also want to try.
It's a bit pricey, around 200-300 per person, but it really looks great, I will try it soon :)

xx,
Mel.


I'm not good at directions so please check this out to know where
they are located: http://www.brewkus.com.ph :)

Vanilla Cupcake Bakery :)




While I was touring Trinoma (as I always do because that is where
I park when I got to work) I saw this adorable place -  Vanilla Cupcake Bakery.
I was drawn to it right away and I saw some interesting cupcakes that I 
wanted to try but of course as I always do, I tried the red velvet cupcake first <3

It was good but I would love to have the top more cream cheese-y and
less sweet :) otherwise it's really good. It's kinda pricey P85 each but
for the ambiance, it's worth it :) I will definitely try the other interesting
cupcakes they have in the near future.

I know 2 branches only, one at Trinoma and one at Glorietta 1:)

Milk tea in a bottle :)


I'm so sorry if I haven't been blogging much lately,
I have just started working and it has taken up all my time
and energy, but I'm actually enjoying it :)

Alright, so here is something I found very very amusing :)
As I was browsing through the drinks at 7-eleven, I saw this cute
bottle that caught my eye because it looks like milk tea. When I read it,
it IS Milk Tea!!!!!:) Of course, what did I do? I immediately grabbed
one and bought it!:) it's 59 Pesos, and amazing!:) It does not
taste like your typical milk tea in a bottle that tastes artificial.
This actually tastes like milk teas that are freshly brewed and
bought in Milk Tea places <3
**The Most amazing discovery at 7-eleven**

Schlurp yours now <3!

Tea 101 at Robinson's Magnolia :)



I'm not sure about quality control but I'm not a fan of what I drank a while ago. I tried the Milk tea with Oreo Cookies and Cream and it tasted weird. It was not that bad but the milk tea didn't taste good. The Oreo top was really yummy but the milk tea bottom did not compliment that :( I remember trying Wintermelon Milk Tea at the Banawe Branch and it was really great. It may be so that this was just a bad day at Tea 101, just like a false positive :))  I won't recommend the Milk Tea with Oreo Cookies and Cream but I do recommend the Wintermelon Milk tea :)

Wallet Recession 15 : Green Pants.


Green Pants. I love the items at Red Head which is located at SM Department Stores.
I love this store because they offer amazing clothes at very affordable prices :)
This pants cost P700 :) It's cool to use unique colors once in a while because
it brings out your personality :)

Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake :)


I learned from my sister that the ice cream cakes at Dairy Queen are great, who would've thought
that that knowledge would come in handy today :) I and my friends were at MOA today to celebrate the birthday of three of our blockmates, we were thinking of giving them cake as a present. My first choice was Starbucks but we can't seem to find it then we came across Dairy Queen and then I remembered what my sister said. We checked out the cakes there and turns out they look really yummy and within budget <3 Our eyes fell exactly at the same piece of heaven,
this cookies and cream cake <3 We bought it for P749 (not a bad price for a cake right?:) ).
Super yummy! it's filled with chocolate fudge, cookies and cream ice cream, oreo bits and cream <3 Yep! A definite must try :)

Mel.
