I want me some Mr. Coffee

Came across this cool cafe while I was exploring Singapore’s Tiong Bahru district. Unfortunately, I had just gotten coffee at Forty Hands, so I passed up on trying Flock Café–which means I’ll just have to go back. Not that it’s such a hardship. Look out for my post about the ultra hip Tiong Bahru! Advertisements

Saint’s Alp Teahouse

While coffee might not be the first thing you’ll think of when you say Saint’s Alp Teahouse, it definitely shouldn’t be overlooked. Call me weird for ordering coffee in a self-proclaimed teahouse, but Saint’s Alp has become one of my go-to places for good, reasonably priced coffee. (Besides, I hate tea.) Saint’s Alp Teahouse is a Hong Kong-based chain that boasts of authentic Taiwanese dishes aside from its popular teas. I’ve never actually tried the food there, though, save for one of their pastry bars. I just go there for their coffee.

Starbucks Dark Mocha White Chocolate Pudding Frappuccino

Yessiree, today’s the day! I woke up extra early to finally apply for my Social Security I.D. card, a process that took me about an hour. Surprising–in a good way–considering the other stories I’ve heard. As a reward to ourselves for completing our morning agenda, my mom and I stopped by Starbucks on the way home. She knew that I’d been waiting for this new drink, and since she was a fan of Dark Mocha Frappuccino, she was happy to oblige my requested pit stop. One of the first things that I noticed when I approached the counter was the announcement about the buy one, take one promo for the new drinks from 2 to 5 pm today. Of course, my initial reaction was: “Dang, should I just come back later?” (That was past nine in the morning). Then I figured it was too much effort. Besides, I wasn’t about to drink two of those drinks in one day when I hadn’t even tried them to begin with! And there’s the GERD factor to consider. So …

Achievements and Rewards: SBC Sea Salt Caramel Javakula

Achievements Unlocked: Complete Feature Writing Workshop Revised resume Started Zumba-ing again Went to the dentist Yes, I do consider going to the dentist an achievement. I’ve mentioned my fears of hospitals before, but I don’t know if I included dentists there. I do have my reasons to dread dentists, count ’em: two tooth extractions in preparation for my braces, braces for almost four years, one surgery to remove an impacted wisdom tooth, one root canal which led to one apicoectomy (but not before I had one heck of a swollen upper palate–I’ve got pictures but I’ll spare you the sight of ’em). Toss in a gross number of cavities, and you’ll understand my trauma. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from all of that, it’s that I shouldn’t delay going to the dentist when I feel something aching–though surprise, surprise, I still delayed it this time. I finally sucked it up and went earlier this afternoon. My appointment took two hours, and it involved a dental cleaning, five new pastas–and I don’t mean the delicious Italian kind–and …
