Casio Vintage A168 Watch

Christmas came early last year. My gorgeous Casio Vintage A168 watch is from my ever generous girlfriend. We have got it from an online shop (vanityonlineshop) based in Pampanga. It was a hassle-free transaction. The owner was kind enough to meet up with us despite her busy schedule. The meet up place was at Starbucks Coffee in SM Pampanga. Baby and I arrived there 20 minutes earlier so we could still have time for some refreshments before heading to Skyranch. Vanityonlineshop also sells Instax cameras that are too gorg to resist. In fact, I am saving up money to get the Hello Kitty Limited Edition Instax camera for my 30th birthday.

Lavish Lashes Studio is my happy place

Lavish Lashes Studio is definitely one of my happy places. Yeah, I know... I said in one of my blog posts just last month that I won't be having eyelash extensions anymore. But I just had to for some personal reasons. Haha! My eyelash extensions are quite pricey but it's definitely worth every penny. If you want your eyelash extensions to last for a month, you need to take good care of them. Avoid scratching your eyes or putting mascara on your eyelash extensions. It's a big no no! I've been a loyal customer of Lavish Lashes Studio and I'm happy to announce that I'm getting my free fancy look on my next visit. You need to accumulate 10 points for you to avail this freebie.

Hat for an island getaway

It's a rainy Monday morning. Typhoon Ruby is slowly approaching Metro Manila and is expected to make a landfall in Batangas. Praying for everyone's safety! Anyway, I was in the perfect mood to take some selfies last night. For props, I borrowed my little sister's hat from New Zealand. It's a perfect hat for summer especially for an island getaway. I'm seeing myself wearing a pretty dress (preferably a white v-neck dress), a choker and this hat on a white sand beach with my girlfriend. And yes, some metallic tattoos too for accent! That would be a great beach outfit idea, isn't it? Teehee!

2015 Starbucks Planner

I already have mentioned in my previous blog entry about my 2015 Starbucks Planner. I got it last week with the help of my ever supportive girlfriend. We have had to drink 4 tall-sized cups of frappuccino to complete the Starbucks Christmas Traditions Promo Card. I used to be a heavy coffee drinker but I had to stop my caffeine intake due to health reasons. Actually, I experienced some mild palpitations after finishing my first drink.(For the love of Starbucks planner!)

But anyway, it was worth it! I got the black Starbucks planner for a change. The red and green Starbucks planners were pretty too but I have been a serious minimalist these past few days. Haha! By the way, every planner comes with a legit Starbucks pen. I hope they'd consider including colored pens too in the future.

For the Love of Starbucks Planner


Collecting Starbucks planner has become a yearly tradition for me. It really is a good feeling whenever I get to claim my Starbucks planner every year. Last week, I was able to redeem my 2015 Starbucks planner with the help of my ever supportive girlfriend. We had to drink 4 cups of frappuccino in order to complete the 18 stickers. In fact, I was already palpitating after finishing my first drink but I survived, thank God! (for the love of Starbucks Planner)Haha. 

For dinner, we've just had bread and pasta. I had the Spam Black Pepper, Egg and Cheddar on New York Bagel while baby had Bacon, Egg and Cheddar on English Muffin. Sad to say, I didn't enjoy my Spam Black Pepper, Egg and Cheddar as I found the bagel too hard to chew. Good thing, my girlfriend happily shared her sandwich with me. Despite my dismay, it was still a day well spent!

Bitty Bow

I really am feeling fresh and youthful with my plain bitty bow that I just purchased online (Bumabagets ang lola niyo, Haha). Instagram is one of the best places to shop these days. You can find here a lot of online shops selling unique and interesting items. But of course, you need to take extra care as some of them are engaged into fraudulent acts. I'm just lucky that I've never experienced such when shopping online. It's very substantial to read first about the online shop's background ( real reviews & feedbacks from customers) before making any purchase. By the way, this plain bitty bow costs P40 while the two-colored bitty bows range from P50 to P60.

Classy Bob Hairstyle

I have been itching to cut my hair short and I'm just glad that I did. The hot and humid weather these past few days is the foremost reason why I gave in. Baby was kind enough in helping me find the best-est hairstyle appropriate for my square-faced shape. Keira Knightley's classy bob hairstyle really looked good on her so I have decided to go for the same hairstyle too. 

I had my haircut done for the first time at Salon One in Festival Supermall. Unfortunately, I failed to get the hairstylist's name 'cause I was feeling under the weather since I woke up yesterday. He was able to pull off the classy bob hairstyle that I wanted. He wasn't abrasive unlike the other hairstylists that are talkative and loud. I'm very pleased with my new hairstyle.

Basic Outfit

Basic outfits are very pretty to look at, isn't it? I got this outfit inspiration from an instagram account featuring basic outfits from random people here in the Philippines. Local fashion bloggers were the major contributors on that website and it seems like they already have inspired so many. 

Outfit details: My top is from a tiangge store in Pampanga, bottom is from Uniqlo, Birks inspired sandals are from Sewn Sandals and the American Apparel inspired tote bag is from Forever Vogue Clothing. My AA inspired tote bag is really rad! It has zipper but it doesn't have pockets inside though.

PBA Live

I watched PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) live with my Baby at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City last Tuesday. It was my first time to watch it live and it was full of fun! We weren't able to catch the first game though 'cause Baby prepared a real nice surprise for me back in our hotel room. I'd share with you all the full details, hopefully on my next blog post. Anyway, we arrived at Smart Araneta Coliseum around 6:00 PM. We arrived 30 minutes earlier so we just snapped some photos of ourselves. The second game (Talk n Text VS. Globalport)  was pretty exciting. I was able to see some famous PBA players such as Jimmy Alapag, Larry Fonacier and Jason Castro. Jimmy Alapag is one of my favorites 'cause he really is good in three-point shooting.

Yabu's Chicken Katsu

Japanese cuisine is something that I just can't withstand. I love it more than Chinese and other international cuisines. Two Mondays ago, I took my aunt to a dainty Japanese lunch at Yabu. I'm a big fan of Katsu so I didn't have any second thoughts of getting the Chicken Katsu. It comes with unlimited cabbage, rice, fruits and miso soup. The cabbage with Goma dressing was definitely my favorite. I had three rounds of cabbage which made my lunch SUPER awesome! I won't get tired of having Katsu at Yabu.

Collecting Stickers for the Starbucks Planner

Undoubtedly, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas lights and decors are everywhere... But sadly, the weather still feels like summer! That's why, Baby and I have decided to get something cold for the night. I went for Peppermint Mocha frappuccino while Baby had Java Chip. Btw, I'm collecting stickers for the Starbucks planner and I'm just 6 stickers away! Yahoo! I'm eyeing the black and green Starbucks planners 'cause they are my favorite colors. I'm definitely going to Starbucks Festival Mall next weekend and I'd be getting the Christmas Cookie frappuccino drink.

Flash Tattoos

Flash tattoos are in demand these days. I've always secretly wanted a real tattoo ( a rainbow tattoo on my wrist), but due to health reasons, I can't. Good thing, there is such thing as flash tattoos. It is a temporary tattoo that can last up to 5 days. It is au courant and it makes a good accessory too. I got these real nice flash tattoos from an online shop in Instagram. Just check out her ig account: blessings374. It is a legit online shop selling flash tattoos and made to order fashion accessories. My orders were delivered on time and the owner herself responds to queries in a timely manner.

Panic Mode

Can you believe 2014 is about to end in less than two months? Time runs so fast to the point that I didn't notice that Christmas is only a few weeks away. Dang! In fact, this red cup from Starbucks that I had just today, gave me the go signal to start writing down my Christmas list. Honestly, I'm on panic mode right now 'cause some of my godchildren are visiting me this year.

I only have three weekends to do my Christmas shopping. Good thing, Baby's willing to go to Divisoria with me. She's game for almost anything and that's one of the things I love about her.

Chili's Grill and Bar

Chili's Grill and Bar restaurant is my newfound place to slake my food cravings. I went for yummy country-style pork belly while baby went for some chicken with mashed potato and steamed vegetables on the side. Actually, we were stuffed with so much food before heading to Chili's. But no regrets! The food we had at Chili's was really dainty and presentable! The country-style pork belly was grilled to perfection. It was soft and flavorful too. I'd have another round of this on my next visit.

Laybare Alabang Town Center

  Laybare is my favorite place to go to for my eyebrow threading. I always go to SM Tunasan branch 'cause the staff are friendly and professional. But last time, I have no choice but to have my eyebrow threading done at Alabang Town Center. The technician who did my eyebrow threading was nice and accommodating. She's made sure that I'm 100% satisfied with their service. Eyebrow threading at Laybare just costs P110, both for men and women.

Chatime Alabang Town Center

I swear.. I really am trying to withstand the temptation to eat fastfood but I just can't! :( I have to cut out my unhealthy food cravings now 'cause Christmas is just around the corner. As you may already know, Christmas means a lot of things: Celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, spending time with our loved ones and getting fat. Haha! 

Anyway, I'd still talk about how good my food was when I ate out with my little sister at Chatime, Alabang Town Center. We had chicken chops and barbecue-flavored french fries. The chicken chops were cooked to a T. It wasn't hard to chew and it definitely makes a perfect afternoon snack together with your favorite Chatime drink. The barbecue flavored french fries were not too briny, which I liked.

Forever 21 SM Southmall

      Photo Courtesy of Forever 21 Ph

A very good news to all those people from down south! Forever 21 is opening a branch at SM Southmall on October 31st. I jumped for joy when I saw this on my news feed. You know, it's a dream come true for shopaholics like me. Plus, Forever 21's been my favorite store ever since it penetrated the Philippine market. If my memory serves me right, my first ever purchase from them was a plain white top. It really goes well with my favorite leggings and skinny jeans. I'm excited to get first dibs at Forever 21 Southmall. I'd like to get a pair of bf/ripped jeans and probably a nice sweater for the upcoming holidays.

Fruits in Ice Cream: Choco Marble Lite

My tummy's in euphoria again. I just had Fruits in Ice Cream's Choco Marble Lite in a cup at Alabang Town Center. It is low in fat, sugar free and it tastes really good, as if I'm eating a regular ice cream. The FIC Lite has 5 delicious flavors: Mangoes and Cream, Cafe Latte, Choco Marble, French Vanilla and Mixed Berries. I was able to try the Mixed Berries too and so far, it's my favorite! My sister had the regular ice cream in Avocado flavor and the taste was sterling. I'm going to try the Mangoes & Cream on my next visit and I'd get the double scoop in a sugar cone.

Shut Up and Kiss Me Lip and Cheek Mousse: Swept Off My Feet

I'm one happy kiddo. Finally, got my hands on HAPPY SKIN's newest product, Shut Up and Kiss Me Lip and Cheek Mousse. As always, their packaging is so P-U-H-R-E-T-T-Y. It makes you want to get all of them. I got the Swept Off My Feet shade, a pinkish nude that gives that girly vibe. I have been using this for three straight days now and I have noticed that its staying power is just as amazing as the Shut Up and Kiss Me moisturizing lippies. It is creamy upon application then it ends into soft matte finish. It does look natural on my lips. My sister can barely tell that I'm wearing lipstick. The Warm and Toasty shade is definitely my next target. I'm getting more and more obsessed with coral shades 'cause they give my skin that summer glow that I need all year round.

Kenji Tei Alabang Town Center

Baby and I have agreed to try all the restaurants in our favorite shopping mall in the south, Alabang Town Center, especially the ones we haven't tried before. We have been to a few and mostly, they were Japanese restaurants. Yes, that's how crazy we are for Japanese cuisine! Just yesterday, we headed to Kenji Tei for some ramen and salmon sushi for our late lunch. We have decided to sit near the entrance door so we could take photos without getting the attention of others. 

I had large bowl of Shoyu Ramen (P325) while Baby had Spicy Negi Ramen (P365). My Shoyu Ramen has similar taste with the one I've had in Greenbelt recently. Baby allowed me to have a taste of her ramen and I liked it more. My palette loves anything spicy 'cause it gives out an extra kick and it helps lessen the umay factor. I just wished that they've added up some veggies in the Spicy Negi Ramen. It was all pork which isn't really a good idea especially for health conscious individuals. I liked the salmon sushi(P145) too, but I'd always be a salmon sashimi lover.

My Very Own Tomato Swap Watch

Finally, the long wait is over! I have my very own Tomato Swap watch now. It was a birthday gift from baby. The color's real nice but I'm planning to get a black or gold clock face and some new straps to match. The other color of strap that I have looks fun and pretty too. But sometimes, I am having a hard time pairing it up with my outfits especially with colored and patterned ones. I have no choice but to wear my black G-shock instead. I hope they'd come up with new colors and designs in the near future. Cartoon characters would be an awesome idea.

Nature Republic Mascara

Eyelash extensions have been part of my life for almost 2 years now. However, I have just realized that it isn't practical to spend P550 every month. There were times that I had to go back for retouch (P200) after a week or two. What a waste! That's why, I finally have decided to buy a mascara that would make my lashes appear longer. I've got the Botanical Wonder Mascara from Nature Republic which is indubitably a good buy. It really gives out that long lash effect on my short and sparse eyelashes. AND... It doesn't smudge which is a PLUS points for me! I hate it when a mascara leave smudges on the eye area. It looks a real MESS. I'm going to get the volume effect on my next visit. It looks nice too!

Birks Inspired Sandals

Mandals are so back! I remember owning a few pairs of Birkenstock sandals way back. I've had 3 pairs that come in different colors and styles. Sadly, I don't have any idea where they are now. 

Anyway, I am just happy that my favorite homegrown shoe brand, SEWN Sandals has come up with an idea of creating Birks inspired sandals (ADLER) that are incredibly comfortable to wear. I got the classic color (black) so I could easily pair it up with my plain, colored, and patterned outfits. They also have it in white and matte copper. My Adler sandals definitely are my newfound love!

Happy Skin PH

Makeup is something that I just cannot live without. I am not skittish to admit that my face really looks dry and pale when I am not wearing any makeup. Plus, dark circles around my eyes have been my major problem ever since. I need LOTSA concealer to hide them or else my life is doomed. Haha.

Anyway, I just wanted to share with you all my latest make-up loot from a very popular homegrown brand, HAPPY SKIN. Rissa Mananquil-Trillo and Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez are the awesome people behind HAPPY SKIN. They teamed up to create a skin-loving makeup. Now, I know why more and more people are loving this brand 'cause I was able to try them out myself. Happy Skin PH is something to be proud of! In fact, I love it more than my MAC makeup. Will surely add up more shades to my growing Shut Up and Kiss Me lippie collection.

The Grill by Antonios Tagaytay

Since we were celebrating a very special occasion, my 29th birthday, Baby took me to a fancy restaurant in Tagaytay (The Grill by Antonio's). It really was not cold and chilly when we visited Tagaytay. It was just a normal weather but I still opted to wear my newly-bought sweater. Teehee! 

The place gives out a homey vibe and is quite spacious to accommodate guests. I love the staff's attentiveness and focus to details. If ever you need anything, they would happily assist you in the best-est possible way. 

We've had pork barbeques (which is priced at P45 each), ginataang kalabasa,  la paz batchoy, and turon with tikoy for dessert. I liked everything especially the turon with tikoy. My tastebuds loved it!
It was very appetizing and definitely the best way to end a hearty meal.

Sky Eye Tagaytay

I just love looking at breathtaking sights. I can stare at them all day. This shot was taken while riding the Sky Eye in Sky Ranch, Tagaytay. Sky Eye is considered as the tallest ferris wheel in the Philippines at 207 ft. You know, I am scaredy cat of heights. In fact, I cried while riding the gondola. Haha! But, my fret instantly got away when I came to realize that I shall conquer my fears! I was lucky enough to catch this breathtaking view with my camera while we were on top. I am planning to ride the Sky Eye again on my next visit. And this time, no more crying! Teehee 

By the way, there are other rides that you can try at Sky Ranch and you have to purchase the tickets for each ride individually. Ride-all-you-can tickets are not yet available at this time.

Sky Eye: P150 
Address: Kilometer 60, Aguinaldo Highway, Tagaytay City (Beside Taal Vista Hotel)

Estancia Resort Hotel Tagaytay

Tagaytay is one of my favorite places to go to whenever I wanted to unwind or escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. I love Tagaytay's weather especially during BER months. The weather tends to be really cool!

I went to Tagaytay last Sunday (Sept 7) for my post birthday celebration. Baby shouldered all of our expenses including food and accommodation. We stayed in a deluxe room at Estancia Resort Hotel. The hotel's setting reminded me of the breathtaking structures in Greece. 

Our room was quaint and well-maintained. It was definitely a love at first sight. It was equipped with a mini refrigerator, dining table, dresser, cable television, and other things that usually can be found in a hotel room. 

Outside our very pleasant room was a dining set, where you can just sit, enjoy and relax with your family or friends. We were able to relish all of the hotel's amenities and facilities the next day. Right after getting ourselves stuffed with some real good Pinoy breakfast, we roamed around to check out the whole resort. 

Kudos to the owners of Estancia Resort Hotel Tagaytay for maximizing the voluminous land area that they've got. I really did enjoy the sauna and jacuzzi. And yes, the sports equipment too!

Happy Skin Shut Up and Kiss Me Lippies

I am in lipstick heaven! I just rewarded myself with the most raved homegrown make-up brand, Happy Skin, the other day. I gushed upon seeing one of the best-selling lipstick shades (The Morning After) 'cause everyone's really been giving good reviews about it. 

Moreover, I am a HUGE fan of lipsticks that look natural on the lips. I tried on the The Morning After tester (a limited edition shade) at Plains and Prints and instantly fell in love with it. It is easy to apply and glides on smoothly. With just one application, the color's already visible. No need for second coating anymore! It's the best nude shade of lipstick for me! Another shade that I got was the Summer Fling. It's a peachy shade that brightens up my fair complexion. It's the shade that I always tote around when going out. 

This is a very moisturizing lippie that is easy to apply. I love its staying power and its ability to make your lips fab with just one swipe.

Brandless Shoes

It is very seldom for me to wear shoes when going out. I am just more comfortable wearing my Havaianas flip-flops especially when the weather's scorching hot outside. But last time, I had this urge of taking these babies out. I bought this pair at a Tiangge store in Starmall, Alabang. It was love at first sight! It resembles a famous shoe brand that I saw while shopping for our upcoming trip to Tagaytay. The color's very versatile. I can pair it with almost any outfit in my wardrobe. Plus, it is SUPER comfy to wear. It did not give me a hard time strolling around despite not wearing any socks at all. I did not expect that these brandless shoes can give that style and comfort at a fraction of the cost.

Starbucks Strawberry Pistachio Cake

On some days, calories do not matter... Baby and I share the same taste when it comes to food especially DESSERTS! We can finish a bar of chocolate in just one sitting. That's why when we have heard about Starbucks' newest product--- Strawberry Pistachio cake(P120 per slice / P1295 whole), we have visited Starbucks-Trinoma right away for a Tuesday merienda date. 

My two favorite food were combined in a cake--- Strawberry and Pistachio. The pistachio was not overpowering at all and it gives that scrunch that I really liked. Teehee!

Snoe Whats Up Brow Eyebrow Gel Corrector

My eyebrows are sparse and uneven. Yes, you heard it right! My left eyebrow is shorter than the right one. It's been my problem eversince! Every time I go for an eyebrow threading, the technician would always notice my uneven eyebrows. Grr! 

Ma'am bakit maiksi yung kilay mo sa kaliwa? I really am tired of hearing the same thing over and over again. That is why, I have decided to give a solution to my longtime dilemma. Although not permanent, at least I have got something that will help in hiding my flaws when going out. 

I got Snoe's What's Up Brow Eyebrow Gel Corrector for P800+. I am not a pro in doing my own make-up so I asked the SA to apply it for me. I liked it very much! I felt like an instant celebrity when I saw my brows! I took a lot of selfies before removing my eyebrow make-up and compared it with my photos with just eyebrow powder on and I really looked different. 

With Snoe's What's Up Brow Eyebrow Gel Corrector, my eyebrows look FANTABULOUS! I am still struggling to apply it impeccably though. But I am positive that I would be able to master it sooner or later. Practice makes perfect, right?

Inverted Fishtail Loomband

Tada! This is my third time to make a loom band. The first two were fishtail loom bands that I personally made just for my baby. The photo above is called an inverted fish tail loom band. The colors (blue and pink) were handpicked by my little sister. She asked me to make this one for her and she really loved it! 

The other loom band styles are nice too, but based on the Youtube videos that I just saw, they are quite knotty to do. Plus, I have to acquire a new kit, for instance a monster tail crafting kit, if I would like to create new loom band styles. The styles are endless, indeed!

Lindt Strawberry Intense White

Lindt Strawberry Intense White, why are you so DAMN good? Baby just gave me this heavenly delicious chocolate that she bought at Puregold Dutyfree in Angeles City, Pampanga. She knows that chocolates make me weak in the knees. 

The strawberry bits made this chocolate an instant favorite. I finished the whole bar in just one sitting! I am seriously hankering for one right now. I am just hoping that mainstream grocery stores have this! Argh!

Tomato Swap Watch

Sporting my little sister's swap watch today. This one is from Tomato. It costs P1000, which includes two straps of your choice. The gold clock face makes it elegant-looking! It may look quite simple on the photo but it is really, really nice in person. 

I just love how this swap watch can create different looks in one day. I would like to get one for myself too but I do not have the budget right now.

YABU: House of Katsu

I am glad to announce to all of you that I just joined the YABU: House of Katsu craze! Good remarks from different food blogs online is the main reason why I gave in. Plus, I have great love for Japanese cuisine and I just could not let this pass. Baby and I trouped to its ATC (Alabang Town Center) branch for dinner. It was around 6 P.M when we got in and there were only a few empty tables left. The longest table was occupied by a group of office workers and we were seated next to them. They seemed to be first-timers too as they were shown how the YABU ritual is done.

The Yabu ritual is done by grinding the sesame seeds in a small bowl then pour some Tonkatsu sauce and you are all set!

I went for the Rosu (Pork Loin) set which is served with unlimited Japanese white rice or brown rice, miso soup, Japanese pickles, cabbage with a choice of dressing, and a bowl of fruit (pineapple and watermelon).

While baby had the Hire and Seafood Katsu set which is a mixture of pork and seafood. It also comes with unlimited Japanese rice, miso soup, Japanese pickles, unlimited cabbage with sesame dressing, and a bowl of fruit. 

The Pork Tonkatsu I had was crispy on the outside and incredibly juicy on the inside. It was no ordinary Katsu for me since it tastes real authentic. I had two rounds of miso soup, fruits, and LOTS AND LOTS OF CABBAGES! The GOMA dressing (roasted sesame) is what I poured on top of my cabbages! It was flavorsome! I wish I could find some Goma sauce at mainstream grocery stores. It would surely make a perfect dressing for my veggies!

Movie Date

Late post: Baby and I watched the Into The Storm movie at Alabang Town Center two days ago (Thursday). I thought it was not crowded since it was a weekday, and the movie has been on theaters since Aug 7 but clearly, I was wrong. We were not able to catch the movie on time as we spent the remaining 15 minutes of our time buying vittles at Taters. When we got in, the theater was jam-packed... Movie goers were mostly senior citizens... The movie was A-W-E-S-O-M-E though. No dull moments! My heart was pounding the whole time!

Sanuk Sandals

My birthday came early this year! I just wanted to say thank you to my baby for giving me this really nice pair of Sanuk sandals. BTW, These are NOT shoes! They are sandals! (this is the famous tagline of Sanuk) and now I know the reason why! They are lighter, slimmer and super flexible! 

Buying a pair of Sanuk sandals has never crossed my mind as they are quite spendy. Plus, I am more of a flip-flops person and I rarely wear shoes when going out. But I guess, I would make an exception this time. 

...Very comfy to wear... which makes this pair perfect for taking long walks. I just checked out the Sanuk store near my place and saw some pairs that are too cute to resist!

Gloria Jeans Coffees SM Center Muntinlupa

Now there is more reason for me to visit SM Center Muntinlupa. Gloria Jean's Coffees, a famous Australian coffee shop, is now accessible to all coffee lovers in the south. 

My mom who is a certified coffee addict asked me to get some frappuccino at Gloria Jean's Coffees. Cocoa Loca is the counterpart of Starbucks' mocha frappuccino which is my mom's all-time favorite. 

I got the white chocolate mocha espresso while my little sister had Cocoa Loca too. My mom said that GJ's tastes way better and I guess she was right! GJ's white chocolate mocha espresso really was good! It was made with so much goodness!

Pistachio Ice Cream

Yellow Cab's Pistachio ice cream is the bomb! I just love eating anything that is atypical to my taste. It was saccharine and every bite was divine! I almost finished it and forgot that I've had to share it with my mother and little sister. Haha! They have got other ice cream flavors that I would like to try next time! By the way, this one costs P120. It is kind of pricey for its size but trust me, it is worth it!

Butterscotch Oat Fudge Bar

Butterscotch Oat Fudge Bar ---This is my newfound favorite Starbucks pastry! It really tastes good! It is chewy, soft and sweet. Everytime I visit my favorite Starbucks branch (Starbucks SLEX Muntinlupa), I always pair it up with Classic hot chocolate or White chocolate espresso. I'm seriously craving for one right now! I also find the double chocolate fudge bar tempting!
