Books & Brews Cafe’s Iced Matcha and Iced Hazelnut Latte ♡ | Coffee Review

Coffee Rating: 4.5/5

I’ve been eyeing this place for the longest time and finally I’m here!

Located at the back of Mango Square Mall (near the parking area), this place, I noticed, is the go-to for people who wants a safe and quiet place to study, read a book or just enjoy their cup of coffee in peace.

They have an open kitchen/bar which is a plus when it comes to sanitary–we can see how our food and drinks are made.

You can also borrow books while you’re there!

And a big YES for stainless straws and mason jars! ♡ #SaveTheEarth

Okay, now back to my review on the drinks. I ordered the Iced Hazelnut Latte and my friend ordered Iced Matcha.

For my drink, I was happy. It was not too sweet and not to watery considering there was ice on it for some time already. However, for the Iced Matcha, my friend said it it was a bit watery, thus the 4.5 score.

I’ll be coming back for their other drinks next time! ♡

Letting Go

I looked at myself in the mirror today and suddenly had the urge to get a pair of scissors and just chop off my hair right then and there.

And so I did.

Looking at myself after my impulsive decision, I began to panic.

It’s way too short.

I looked around the floor. Hair everywhere–a lot of them.

I focused my gaze on the mirror again.

I looked more younger now. I feel lighter.

Along with my hair are the feelings I’m bottling up inside me.

I smiled.

I’m letting them go now.

I’ve let them go.

I Survived!

Hi, lovelies! Hi, blog! ♡

I’m back again. Last update was me talking about being busy. Well, I survived it all–for now. Hahaha today is the first day of No Work for the holiday season! Yey!

I’ll probably binge-watch the movies I missed on Netflix or update more here.

I’m just happy to be back in WordPress.

6 days until Christmas! ♡

Work + School Update (Part Two!)

There are a lot of things going on in my mind right now and I don’t know how to start this–wait, I guess that should start it. LOLJK.

Work Update:

Good news! I’m not unemployed anymore. *throws confetti* Well, sort of, but I’m starting next week! *throws confetti again*

I’m hired as a Lower Primary Teacher and by next year, I will most likely handle and lead my own class already. Can’t freaking wait. I’ll miss my lazy days though, not gonna lie.

Currently, I’m still completing my requirements so I can hand it all in by Monday. I am exhausted but, we gotta do what we gotta do.

School Update:

For my Masters, I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I’ll start this Saturday, 27th of October. No rest for me but I’m excited to meet new faces!

♡♡♡

I do hope I can still continue with my other planned posts here. I’ll make this work. Hoping to post every Wednesday/Thursday the least. Ciao! ♡

Day 2 ♡ | 30 Day Blogging Challenge: 10 Facts About You

Get to know a little bit about me!

Day 2 – 10 Facts About You

  1. I’m a Communication graduate working on my certification to be able to teach Professional Education. (I’m going to receive it this month!)
  2. Once I have my certification, I then plan to enroll in a Master’s Degree Program in Special Education.
  3. I really love coffee, not for the caffeine but for its taste. (I’ll never get tired of saying this. LOL.)
  4. Like coffee, I’m addicted to milk tea as well!
  5. I’m also a fan of Oolong tea.
  6. I’m a bibliophile. I fell in love with reading way back when I was still in Elementary–which is the reason why I am wearing specs to date.
  7. In connection with # 6, I’ve been wearing specs for almost 11 years now. I plan on having Lasik Surgery if I already have the money. It’s not cheap so.. Yeah. (Please take care of your eyes! I’d be over the moon if I’ll have my 20/20 vision back.)
  8. I really like Forensic Science. I enjoy watching shows like Forensic Files (On Netflix) for hours! If you know anymore shows like that, please do tell me ♡
  9. I also enjoy conspiracy theories.. A lot. Plus, anything weird. Like Black Mirror (On Netflix) weird.
  10. My dream job when I was in college was to be a Flight Stewardess (I’m 5″6 by the way, so you can say I’m taller than most girls) but everything changed when I decided I wanted to be an educator. No regrets ♡

Well, there you have it!

Okay, okay. This was supposed to be 30 Facts About You but.. I’ll just probably add more facts soon. LOL.

Anyway, see you on Day 3! Hahaha ♡
