Starbucks' Salted Caramel Mocha & Breakfast!

I enjoy caramels, I enjoy salty foods too!  Would you believe that I dip my french fries in hotcake syrup?  Yes, that is my perfect combination of sweet and salty! Last Wednesday, Starbucks introduced us to their newest drink - the Salted Caramel Mocha. It was such a wonderful treat because for a person who loves both sweet and salty, this drink is THE perfect combination!  We were given a treat to try the hot and the frapp version, being a cold drink person - I prefer the blended frapp, but I have to admit, the hot version captures the Salted Caramel taste better. Starting today, September 11 - everyone will get to try this newest drink.  Together with the drink launch, Starbucks is also introducing their newest Breakfast food items!  Here are my favorites:   Forest Ham, Egg White and Gouda Cheese on Oat Bread Ratatouille and Mozzarella Cheese on Multigrain Bread Spanish Frittata Wrap And here's something to look forward to - on ALL Mond

Suits, Newsroom, Falling Skies & Continuum

These days, I dream of Harvey Specter and Mike Ross..  SUITS This show caught my eye on DIVA (cable show), I think I caught the third episode - but I was hooked.  I asked my brother about the show and luckily he had a few episodes.  It was LOVE at first watch, because I couldn't stop watching the episodes over and over again.  Would you believe that it was only when the second season started that I FINALLY got to watch the Pilot?  Haha, and I looooooved the Pilot!  During season one, my favorite was Mike Ross, but when the season finale went and came the new season - it was Harvey Specter!  I think I didn't know that I liked him - deep down, I just realized it - late! There's one complaint though for me - its the on again off again love angles for Mike Ross!  I don't know why, but I get usually turned off when there is a sign of a love interest.  I think its the formula of ANY show to have this love angle, but I beg to differ!  I just sigh when I see the angle c

My take on Immigration Officers asking for OT pay

When I saw on TV that Immigration Officers were complaining of not being paid overtime, my blood boiled a bit.  My respect levels for the Immigration Officers in our international airports are quite low, and you know why?  Because these freaking people are not doing their jobs well! Number 1 - How many immigration counters do we have?  Are they always open?  NO THEY'RE FREAKING NOT!  Even if the lines are horrendously long, these people REFUSE to open counters to serve travelers!  You'd see them entertaining VIPs and celebrities - chit chatting with other officers while watching people stand in line waiting! We have only a handful of counters right?  These IOs aren't on duty ALL at the same time!  Why not do a shifting schedule to accommodate travelers 24/7?  Why do they need to ask airlines to pay for their overtimes?  Please dear Immigration Officers, don't blab on TV that its the airlines' fault that you are on OVERTIME!  I think you forget that these airline

Boon Tong Kee at MOA

 I think it was a couple of months ago, that I saw a signage in MOA that said Boon Toong Kee was to open.  I thought to myself - greatness in a very sarcastic tone, because MOA is one of those malls that I dislike.  Mainly because of the distance to where I live and it having open air areas.  I hate feeling the heat - and since I'm pregnant, being in a non-airconditioned place is - torture. So last Sunday, when my Panget decided to bring Kailee to MOA (since there was not traffic on a holiday) I was giddy and excited to try Boon Tong Kee since I heard its already open. MOA was packed on a Sunday, I mean seriously packed!  There were people literally EVERYWHERE!  I haven't been to MOA in a long time (because MOA is not one of my favorite malls) so it was really something new to me!  Hahaha.  After a few rounds walking around the mall and having Kailee ride the carousel, my Panget decided that he was hungry and we headed to Boon Tong Kee. Boon Tong Kee is located at the
