Starbucks: 6750 Ayala

6750 AYALA AVE. STARBUCKS

This is one of the busiest Starbucks I know in the middle of Makati, yet it’s also the best one I’ve ever seen in the Metro.

If you know Glorietta and you are always passing by Ayala Avenue, or if you just so happened that you’re a Makati kid, you probably know this Starbucks branch. If not, it’s located at 6750 Building, which is erected along Ayala Avenue, Makati City. Just turn at the Parking and Office Drives,  and it’s easy to spot this.

Unang beses kong napuntahan ang Starbucks na ito when I was applying for a BPO job in a company near by.  Tapos noong na-hire ako, lagi ko na s’yang tinatambayan.

Gusto ko ang ambiance ng branch na ito because it very spacious, dahil mayroon s’yang dalawang floor. Mayroon s’yang touch of Filipino on some of its wall designs. But among all the things I appreciate here is this tower of pictures of, I believe, their staff.

6750 AYALA AVE. STARBUCKS

Ayun nga lang every rush hour, coffee breaks, and lunch break ng mga office workers, laging box office ang pila at occupied lahat ng chairs and tables. But let the rush hour pass, and this branch is a perfect place to be at. Usually, around 9PM onward it’s already peaceful, except kung may promo sila.

6750 AYALA AVE. STARBUCKS

Baristas are very accommodating naman, and the way they prepare my drink is I think is at their standard naman. So good job!

If I love the singer, I made sure that I look for his/her live videos and cover songs, not just their newly released videos. I do this because I want to appreciate his/her vocal capabilities and style.

For Sia, here are the songs I found on YouTube that  made me love her:

5. Sia, Ed Sheeran and Grouplove – Drunk In Love (Official video)

4. Sia – Bird Set Free (Live From SNL)

3. Sia – Titanium (Wango Tango)

TZCAOMAC Joins Komikon 2015

November 14 and 15, pinuntahan ko ang Komikon 2015 na ginanap sa Bayanihan Center, Unilab Compound sa may Pioneer, Pasig City. First time kong dumalo ng Comicon/Komikon bilang si Coffee at may 2-day pass, kaya sa tingin ko nasulit ko ang buong weekend ko for that event at umuwi ako ng pagod na pagod. Hahaha!

Well, dumalo lang ako noon. Hindi ko pa kasi alam kung paano ko ie-expose sina Milk and Coffee sa ganu’ng klaseng kalakaran, so observe-observe muna hanggang sa matutunan ko lang. Besides, I don’t have the means yet to produce massive comics, so I will try to learn everything for the mean time and go for the attack next time. Ang ginawa ko lang doon ay naglibot, bumili ng mga komiks at umattend ng mga panel discussion, na kinapulutan ko ng aral at naging pinaka-paborito kong event ng araw na ‘yun.

Nakilala ko din naman ang ilan sa mga batikan na creator ng mga kilalang komiks dito sa Pilipinas, gaya ng may likha ng “Trese” na si Budjette Tan, Jamie Bautista ng “Private Iris”, Ace Vitangcol ng “Love is in the Bag”, Lyndon Gregorio ng “Beerkada” at, syempre, si Carlo Vergara na gumawa ng Zsazsa Zaturnah. Tinalakay kasi nila ang mga topic na sa tingin ko ay essential para sa mga nag-uumpisa sa industriya ng komiks. Ilan dito ay kung paano mag-self-publish, comic writing, ano’ng nagaganap sa ‘school of comics’ at ano’ng mga challenges ang karaniwang nararanasan sa paglipat ng media platforms.

Maraming tao ang naabutan ko sa event. Halos mapuno ang buong bayanihan center convention area at muntikan ng mag-warning ang aking introvert side. Pero nag-enjoy ako sa iba’t ibang klase, tema at style ng komiks na orihinal na gawa mismo ng mga pinoy na naroroon.

Nagkamali ako nang sinabi ko na kailangang buhayin ang industriya ng komiks sa ‘Pinas. Siguro hindi lang talaga ako aware na malaki pa rin ang kontribusyon ng komiks sa ating bansa, lalo na sa larangan ng komunikasyon at entertainment.

But all in all, nasiyahan ako. Mas lalo akong na-inspire na gumawa ng komiks para sa lahat. Sana marami pang Komikon ang maganap sa ‘Pinas, para more more hapiness and inspiration.

Starbucks: 32nd Street, BGC

Okay, so the adventure starts here. This time, Seryoso na ito! I’m going to check the Starbucks around Metro Manila, and soon Starbucks in the Philippines na rin. We’ll see.
32nd Street Starbucks

Ito actually ang pinaka-malapit na Starbucks sa office ko (click here for directions). It’s found along the 32nd street corner 7th avenue in BGC. Ang landmark na kailangan mong tandaan ay ang Globe Tower. Tatawid ka lang ‘yun na.
Kung may kotse ka, and if you’re coming from the Market, Market, just go straight along the 32nd street then turn right to 9th avenue, and Left to Lane R. There’s a paid parking right over there if you want to stay; or if you’re on-the-go, this Starbucks has a drive-thru.
32nd Street Starbucks
Medyo crowded s’ya lalo na kapag morning and lunch ng weekdays, at ngayon lang ang pinakamagandang chance ko na makuhaan ang lugar ng picture dahil konti ang tao due to APEC Holidays. But as you can see, it’s a cool Starbucks branch to hang out at. The place is very spacious. Outside, they have chairs, table and couch, which is a good smoking area. While inside, the have two floors. Ground floor got long table and set of stools that are perfect talaga sa target market nila, the employees who make chismisan meetings. Second floor is perfect close conversation naman. Smaller space but it’s still good.
32nd Street Starbucks
I experienced going both daylight and evening and the ambiance fits the place, busy pero posh pa din. Nahiya naman ako sa Chandelier nila, ‘di ba?
32nd Street Starbucks
Food and drinks are served well naman as expected from different Starbucks Store.
Am I visiting this store again? Well, not during weekdays, I guess. Pero since sila ng malapit na Starbucks sa office namin, then go-go-go lang ako. Coffee-over-Arte ito!

Starbucks Stickers

It’s the start again of the craze! But don’t you think it isn’t economical to collect stickers from Starbucks for the sake of a planner?

Milk_and_Coffee_AS_Starbucks

Coffee and I have been addicted to this ever since it started. I remembered that I gained convincing power to get my friends buying and collecting stickers for me, so as for Coffee. I also spent a lot of bucks for this sake, that’s why I got caffeine-intoxicated blood plus the love handles. But I still love drinking coffee so I guess it won’t really stop.

For those who don’t know, every last quarter of the year, Starbucks Philippines got this promotion of making their customers collect stickers in exchange for the upcoming year’s planner. In average, you will need to collect 18 stickers – 9 Christmas Edition Drinks and 9 core beverages. And usually, a coffee per cup price range is from 120 to 200* (it depends on sizes and add-ons). In total that’s roughly Php 2,160 to 3600* just to get a planner. And people are really biting it to the point they go to Starbucks every single day, and sometimes, take the long queue just to complete the stickers ASAP.

(*This is my own math. Price range could be lower or higher. It really depends on the drink and add-ons.)

Now, going back to the question, “Is it economical to collect stickers from Starbucks for the sake of a planner?”  What would be my answer?
