Christmas Came Early For Us Starbucks Regulars.

December 1, 2008

Being a regular at Starbucks sure has its perks. Besides having great baristas to hang around with and great tasting coffee (I love the toffeenut Christmas special), we get invited to special parties, such as this Christmas party last Thursday. It was a double celebration for me since my last examination paper fell on the same day. 🙂

Barista Sam, the wonderful popiah maker for the evening.

In addition to popiah, we had some awesome fruit cake and a not-so-yummy  avocado salad (I simply left the avocado aside, it tastes like handcream to me, bleah).
 

And after all that eating, my bestie Lenise went behind the counters and made us various fruit-freezes.

We went dancing around the Christmas tree after that. What a way to end my education in SMU. 🙂

I love Christmas, coffee and being with my loved ones. Most important, I thank the greatest gift Giver of all, Jesus. I won’t be who I am today without Him.

Can I Say That I Love Starbucks Again?

November 26, 2008

I am a self-proclaimed lover of brands and coffee. So when the two came together to form Starbucks, I was in love.

Two reasons for that love-the amazingly friendly baristas and their fresh coffee brewed to perfection and deliciousness. 

My favourite Starbucks branch at Raffles City (the one opposite Chijmes).

My sister and I before church last Sunday-with my favourite holiday coffee…Double-shot Starbucks toffeenut latte with whipped cream, topped with brown crystal sugar. Mmmmm…

 

Thank you Howard Schultz, for creating my ‘third place’.

Carrot Cupcakes With Starbucks Toffee Nut Syrup.

March 23, 2008

I decided to bake for a few of my friends from school and another dear friend of mine from church. Each of them got three mini carrot cupcakes in a brown bag. 🙂 Check out my previous post on the carrot cake here.

The cupcakes just before entering the oven.

The cupcakes after they leave the oven.

I then used a cake tester and poked holes in it and spread this delicious Starbucks toffee nut syrup over each cupcake.

And in the cupcakes went, into these brown bags for my friends.

I hope you guys enjoyed it! 😀 

My boyfriend saw me typing this post and asked me where his cupcakes were, oops! 😛
