Korean food are becoming more and more popular these days and not only here in the Philippines but also in the US and other countries too. But even though a lot of Korean restaurants are popping out in almost every corner, I haven't had a single taste of any Korean dish except for a Kimchi flavored potato chips (which by the way taste good) until my friends and I ate had one at a Chinese restaurant, Kopi Tiam. This was supposed to be an entry about Kopi Tiam's food but I figured, I have 300+ days to talk about Chinese food here anyway and besides, this was my first time to actually have a taste of Kimchi and I must say it's not bad at all. My friends were like "Wow, you liked it? The first time I tasted it I didn't enjoy the taste.".

Kopi Tiam's Kimchi

I cannot wait to try other Korean food! Any suggestions? :)

Starbucks Drinks.

I love how my friends and I enjoy having coffee (or frapuccino) after a heavy meal together. These are our late night drinks after having dinner:

Coffee Jelly, Toffee Nut Frap, Iced Peppermint Mocha, Toffee Nut Frap, Caramel Affogato and Strawberries and Cream Frap. Toffee Nut and Peppermint are two of the three holiday drinks of Starbucks, oh I did mention these are Starbucks drink, right? ;)

I'll miss having to see these many drinks in one table, hopefully we'll be complete for the 2010 holiday!

What's your favorite Starbucks drink? I heard there's a smoothie in Starbucks in other countries. Hmmm.

Hooray for Crystal Clear!

I received this package a few days before Christmas. The manager, Ms. Grace personally came to deliver it to me. I wasn't even prepared! :) I got a box of bottled Crystal Clear water, a calendar, a holiday card, a notepad and notebook.

Thank you Crystal Clear!!!

Busy Day @ Starbucks.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

I hope you all had a fabulous celebration with your family and friends and totally enjoyed the moment.

As for me, I stayed at home which is fun cos I only cozied up in my pajamas, watched Final Destination 4 and Zombieland with a pitcher of Vodka+Iced Tea and a bag of Lay's. But that's not the photo I'm sharing today.

I realized it's been exactly a month since I posted here and I have a lot of food photos all waiting to be published! Seriously! This photo will show you how busy I have been during the past months, especially December, I had to go to a nearby Starbucks cos my internet connection at home was acting up and I was avoiding spending but then again... I spent P300 for the internet card (yes, wi-fi at Starbucks is NOT free!) and of course I have to eat and since it was only before lunch I had Cinnamon Swirl and Basic Black Iced Tea. I spent P600 ($15) more or less. I used to say busy is not an excuse and it's really not but sometimes being busy drains your strength that most of the time you just need to have some quiet, thinking-free moment after a day of brain exercise.

Nonetheless, I resolve that for 2010 I will stick to a schedule and make time for everything else in between! Cheers for the great year ahead and for more food photos! I'm still saving up for that camera though..... ;)
