Cheap Thrills: Great Taste White Coffee

As much as I want to go to Starbucks everyday my wallet is not allowing me. I know I may sound cheap but its true! And also the calories you get in one tall frap is equivalent to two chocolate cakes! I nearly fainted when my friend told me that. But getting my fix once in a while is not bad right?

Going back to the topic, Since I've stopped craving Starbucks that much I found another alternative for it. As I was checking the coffee section I saw this and was a bit curious. I can say that I had doubts about this since it says smoother and creamier can a 3 in 1 coffee do that on its own? hmmmmm....

I personally prefer my coffee with lots of creamer or milk since I don't need to add sugar that much.
One sachet of this is for one serving since if you put half only it would be bland >.<
I like this since I don't have to add sugar to it. But if you like sweet coffee you can add more sugar. 

I was just disappointed when there is no bigger size for this at the store I frequently go to. In comparison to the 3 in 1 coffees that I've tried I think this is the one I will buy again since I can just make it without sugar!

Are you a coffee addict and/or Starbucks addict? What's your favorite coffee?

Let me know on the comment box!

Kopiccino - A Cheap but Great Tasting Capuccino

I am an avid coffee drinker, I even had a so-called affair with it! haha and besides from the espresso and frap that I normally order I would sometimes order cappuccino since I like the creamy and frothy.

I actually found this when I was in ministop and just liked to try it out. Its pretty cheap its around 9-12 pesos which is less than a dollar. I must warn you that this will not be like the one that you see on the packet.

In terms of sweetness its okay since I prefer accompanying this with something sweet like a cake or doughnut.

As far as I can say this product is good since its not too sweet nor too bitter. I actually prefer my instant coffee that way since I would accompany this with a sweet treat ^^,

Try this out for sure if you are having a slow afternoon. This will give you that sweet caffeine boost!

Much Love!

Tofu Omelete!!

I love tofu! I love tofu! I love tofu! Did I say I love tofu? Haha! 

When I was starting out my diet I rarely ate meat and since I like meat a lot I need to get an alternative meat source. I know it sounded like I'm addicted to meat but I can honestly say meat is something I really crave - especially Korean beef! oh just thinking about it makes me cringe since I haven't eaten Korean beef in 3 months (note to self: MUST.EAT.KOREAN.BEEF.SOON). But this post is not about meat but more on tofu!

Food Finds: San Marino Chili Corned Tuna

Hey everyone! 

As of the moment I have fallen in love. Not with a guy but with san marino. 

I haven't tasted this before and I actually got these in my goody bag from the Filipino Bloggers Hub party a couple of months back. 

I wasn't really into corned tuna at that time because honestly I have my doubts. 

Would it taste just like corned beef? will it be okay for the kids? Is this healthier than the canned tuna? 

I know most of the questions were easily answered and I got my answer when I opened this can and tasted it for myself. I got this chili corned tuna which was great since I was also craving for something spicy.

I was expecting not so much of the chili since most chili canned tuna I've tasted weren't really spicy nor chili to begin with. I have to add gochujang (red pepper paste) or hot sauce to bring some spiciness into the meal. But this one is different since I was able to taste the chili from the beginning and this was what I looked like after tasting my first spoonful of this

I know it looks weird but trust me if you like spicy tuna this will be the one for you. 

Another thing I like about this is that one can is good for two servings. I wasn't able to finish this whole can so I was able to enjoy this for my dinner. 

I think this is retailed 45PHP per can which really hits the budget. You just need rice and this and you are all good for the day trust me. 

Its a must try for sure. 

Gotta go! 

Much Love!

See what SumoSam has to offer!

Hello ladies! Remember that around a couple of weeks or so I was invited at the opening of Sumo Sam in Gateway. I was very happy and excited to try their cuisines since I haven't eaten Japanese food in a long time. 

Now as promised, I will be doing individual descriptions about each dish that was served to us with its price.

Drinkin' at Gilligans in MOA by the Bay

I rarely go to Mall of Asia since its too far from my house and usually most of the items there are really expensive. Call be a cheapskate but its true. 

But a couple of days ago me and my office mates went there to have dinner. I was a little hyped up since its most of a bonding experience with two of my new officemates and we didn't have work that night. 

Me and my office mate Katie went to Gilligan's to check out their night scene. I was quite surprised that even though it was a Wednesday there were a lot of people enjoying good food and also good drinks. But I was not in Gilligan's for their food, I'll do that next time. But for now I'll be showing you one of their drinks which is the original margarita. 

This drink may look harmless but the more ice it has on the more intense the alcohol will be. I have tried this drink a couple of times and it never fails to make me want to say why did I order this?!? haha! joking aside this drink is a good drink on a hot summer night. Ever though its not summer anymore here in Manila the hot weather makes this drink a good one to have with your girlfriends. 

The drink we had was in a pitcher  which costs around 270PHP (approx 6.26USD) 

It can only be good for two serving which was a big bummer since a single serve of this is only 95 PHP (Approx 2.20USD) 

Lesson to remember: Not all things in a pitcher will save you! 

I still like Gilligan's but I wish their cocktails will be a bit bigger. I just hope. 


Much Love!
