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! ♡

Fat Fook Taiwanese Kitchen’s Wintermelon Milk Tea ♡ | Milk Tea Review

Milk Tea Rating: 5/5

If you are craving for milk tea, then you will do whatever it takes to get one.. Right?!

Well, a long queue is an exception for me though (aka lazy, but working on it!) that’s why I never get the chance to try some of the new hyped drinks unless they are not anymore, well, hyped. LOL. Am I the only one?!

Fat Fook is a Taiwanese restaurant serving authentic Taiwanese food. Fat Fook literally means Fat (in English) = Big | Fook (in Cantonese) = Good Fortune / Happiness.

It had a long queue, but luckily they had a separate booth solely for their drinks/desserts which was very convenient for people like me.

I ordered their Wintermelon Milk Tea priced at Php 100 + Php 20 for the pearls.

I love the taste! I guess you can say you can never go wrong with Wintermelon Milk Tea–for Fat Fook it definitely applies!

I totally recommend! ❤️

Your Feelings Are Valid; You Are Valid

To whoever needs to hear this:

I validate your feelings.

Yes, it’s real.

Yes, it’s painful.

I know it’s a lot for some people to take in and understand, but I do.

I may not walk the same exact path as you do, but I won’t say I had it worse because really, who are we to compare?

We have different struggles and it sucks big time. Not gonna lie.

But be positive that someday, you will look back on your journey and you will catch yourself smiling because you made it to the other side–happier, healthy and safe.

I’m just here, I won’t judge you. I know that’s the last thing you will need.

 

And maybe, I needed to hear this as well.

The Lemon Co’s Lemonade with Yakult ♡ | Drink Review

My Review: 5/5

I am obsessed with The Lemon Co’s Lemonade with Yakult! ♡

I’ve been ordering it for a straight week now. It’s cheaper than milk tea (price and size fixed at medium and Php 69 respectively) + it’s healthier (freshly squeezed lemon and Yakult) so it’s a win. LOL.

If you are a Yakult lover then this should be on your must-try list.

Steffi Tip: You can order this with 50% – 75% brown sugar. The sweetness will not be overpowering the drink and brown sugar, in my opinion, tastes yummier.

If you tried it already, tell me what you think! ♡

Anger

Your heart is racing fast and your body temperature goes up.

You just want to release all of your anger!

You might want to punch a pillow, scream your heart out, ugly cry or maybe write–just like this.

But wait… “Am I really mad at the person or to myself?”

I’m not so sure anymore.

Denial

You see it happening right in front of your eyes.

You hear it being said to you over and over again.

You feel your heart break into million pieces while your throat tightens into an impossible knot.

You can even taste your own tears running down your face now.

Yet you still listen to that tiny crack of voice inside your head that ever so softly whispers,

“It’s not true–it can’t be true.. Right?”

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.
