i am already counting down to my favorite month – December *coughs* birthday *coughs*, hehe. and because it’s December, I always receive Christmas-related stuff as pressie! one of the best-loved gift was this HUGE Santa Claus, the only soft toy that I allowed on my bed. mami decided to throw it away one day when I was at school, because apparently it browned with time :(.
and i was at Straits Quay last night for yumcha yumjau session and I saw a decorative tall and fat Christmas tree is already being set-up at the main entrance! impressive! I am expecting to see more and more Christmas decoration in the malls as Christmas approaches!

Christmas is a time to ‘Create Wonder and Share Joy’ with beloved family and friends over stories, memories and delectable Starbucks food and beverages. this Christmas, Starbucks is bringing back delightful seasonal favorites, as well as the return of the iconic red cups – signifying the arrival of Christmas season!
Starbucks Christmas Blend, Starbucks Christmas Blend Espresso Roast, Starbucks VIA Ready Brew Christmas Blend
these limited-time, seasonal coffee would be perfect for the season during gatherings with friends and family, or even make a great gift for any hostess. make the moments of togetherness more delicious and aromatic with a cuppa Starbucks coffee! whether it’s the all-time favorite Christmas Blend, the spicy warmth of Christmas Blend Espresso Roast, or the comfort of instant VIA Ready Brew Christmas Blend.
three new cakes are created to complement the coffees this year.
Trio Forest & Tango Mango | RM 10.90 per slice each.
Midori | RM 10.90 per slice
personal favorites are Tango Mango and Midori! Tango Mango is best-paired with Starbucks Christmas Blend as the bitterness in the coffee blends really well with the sweet and slightly sour cake.
the combination of pistachio and cream cheese of Midori is lovely! it’s creamy and moist. I kept reach out for more serving. diet can wait, oh well!
I believe chocolate lover will not want to miss out their Trio Forest. it’s sinfully rich. I am more a dark chocolate person, so I gave it a pass. 😛
Peppermint Mocha Frappucino
Toffee Nut Frappuccino
Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha Frappucino
Starbucks customers can once again enjoy their favorite Christmas beverages this year!
Toffee Nut Latte has the rich, buttery flavor of sweet toffee combined with toasted nuts, blended with smooth espresso and velvety steamed milk. topped with whipped cream (yum!) and toffee-flavored sprinkles, it’s no surprise that this warm, heavenly beverage has been everyone’s favorite! it’s a must-have from the Christmas menu!
Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino blended beverage, a warm combination of espresso, steamed milk, bittersweet chocolate and peppermint flavor, topped with classic whipped cream and a rich chocolate drizzle, the Peppermint Mocha is brimming with Christmas cheer that is sure to please!
Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha is a new addition this year! Starbucks signature espresso is combined with freshly steamed milk and luscious white chocolate, then topped with whipped cream, a tart cranberry drizzle and crystallized cranberry sugar.
we got to taste all the three beverages. here’s mine with extra whipped cream (diet, what?). personal favorite would be Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha! I love the sourness of the cranberry balances out the sweetness of the chocolate. and also because I am a typical girl. girl generally loves sour food.
and how can we forget the highly anticipated Starbucks planner?
Starbucks 2014 Planner | RM 159
instead of just an organizer, Starbucks 2014 Planner doubles up as an iPad cover too! special tough sticker is provided to adhere your iPad nicely to the planner. so you can carry both your traditional planner as well as digital planner together, 2 in 1. nifty eh? it will be available November 15th onwards. you can either purchase it off-shelf at Starbucks outlets at RM 159 OR collect stamps of 15 beverages (including of 3 Christmas beverages).
I foresee that this Starbucks 2014 Planner will be selling like hot cake and Starbucks will run out of stock too soon. so Anteaders, be quick or be dead! wtf.
Starbucks also launches 3 new unique design Starbucks Card, ‘Christmas Tree’, ‘Snowman’ and ‘Merry Christmas’! new card to collect this year huh 😉
if you’re looking for last-minute gifts, spirited stocking stuffed or just a little treat to yourself to, Starbucks can help you spread the Christmas cheer!
each Christmas season marks the return of a time of giving and sharing, and Starbucks offers a wide array of products, totally spoilt of choice. whether it’s seasonal mugs/tumblers, Starbucks VIA Christmas Blend or one of their festive gift packs, Starbucks’ got you covered ;).
Sydney Quays, Managing Director of Berjaya Starbucks Coffee Company.
“we are excited to return to the season that brings us all together every year – Christmas,” said Sydney Quays. “Starbucks offers a heartwarming space to bring family and friends together and rekindle over shared seasonal traditions this Christmas. whether you are looking for a thoughtful gift, or a delicious seasonal treat to make a new tradition, Starbucks has it all.” he added.
