A change of heart, just a bit…

A few days ago, when I saw the photos of the new Starbucks planners, I said it was love at first sight. Starting 2 November, the planners will be displayed in Starbucks branches and the Starbucks Christmas beverages will be made available to coffee-drinkers (and/or sticker collectors), so on that day I headed out to the nearest Starbucks inside our office to check out the planners, I didn’t like it so much, the material didn’t appeal much to me. I tried the new Christmas beverage, Santa Hat Dark Mocha, I didn’t like it too. So I thought, I will ย not be so keen about getting the planner this year, anyway, I am actually on a tight budget so better not to spend on it. The only thing that I liked was the Starbucks Christmas card, bottom right of the photo, isn’t it lovely? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, we only have 50 days before Christmas, hope you’ve started your Christmas shopping to avoid the rush. ๐Ÿ™‚

Starbucks love

I have a few subjects to write about but I’m not feeling so well today, so I will just quickly write about something light and fun.

I’m not a hardcore coffee drinker. I started drinking coffee (not brewed, I started out with caramel macchiato) when I was in my twenties, usually after dinner with friends, when the night is still young and there are lots to chat up on, we would hang out at Starbucks for an hour or two, sometimes longer. And then it has become more frequent because Starbucks is so accessible in the office, so I can buy anytime of the day, usually when I crave for the taste, when I want to reward myself for a job well done, or when I catch up with colleagues/friends.

For a few years now, I joined the bandwagon of collecting stickers to get a Starbucks planner. Each year, I kind of looking forward to it. This year, just today, I received an email about it, when I saw the planners, it was love at first sight! No thinking about it, I will get the one on the left (first), hopefully, I will be able to collect enough stickers for the one on the right, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also am collecting Starbucks cards, currently, I think I have 24 or 26 cards already, some of them are from friends who travel abroad and remember that I collect Starbucks cards so they give it to me as pasalubong. ๐Ÿ˜‰ For this Christmas season, Starbucks released 3 designs, I think I want to get all! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let me take this chance to be the first one to greet you a very Merry Christmas & a very lovely & happy 2017! ๐Ÿ™‚ All of God’s best to us all!

Finally!

I’ve been planning, hoping, wishing, trying to go back to blogging… thank God, today it finally happened!! I’m back to one of the things I love doing — blogging/writing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I decided to create a new site, for a fresh start, leaving the past behind, but definitely taking the lessons learned with me.

I love blogging because it’s my way of expressing my thoughts and feelings, some of which I would rather just express through writing than sharing with a loved one or a friend. Sometimes, just writing my thoughts and feelings makes me feel at ease and happy. There are things that I just want to share here and I would be ย happy to look back and remember that I thought or felt this and that and managed to overcome it on my own.

For today, I have no particular subject to share or to write about. I just want to remember this day when I have finally created a new blogsite! Another milestone for me. Yesterday I had another milestone, I finally had one of my 4 wisdom teeth extracted after delaying it for almost a decade!! It was quite a traumatic experience but thank God it went well and I didn’t feel pain after the operation. I have 3 more wisdom teeth to be extracted in the coming months, I know by God’s grace, it will be just fine, hopefully, no longer as traumatic as the first one. ๐Ÿ˜‰
