Starbucks's layer collection & new lunch food items!

Starting today, February 21 - Starbucks releases their layer collection - the new Espresso drinks! Tahitian Vanilla Macchiato offers a twist on the classic pairing of vanilla and coffee – a marriage made in heaven. Tahitian Vanilla has a unique floral aroma and mild sweetness which pairs the roasty coffee, complemented by a layer of velvety steamed milk, then topped with Starbucks signature espresso and finished with vanilla bean specks and vanilla drizzle in our classic double crosshatch pattern. Meanwhile, the refreshing Valencia Orange Cocoa Cappuccino is perfectly blended to suit the taste of those who need the reinvigorating sweet flavor. In this beverage, Valencia Orange Mocha Sauce is combined with milk, topped with dense and creamy foam and then layered with affogato-style signature espresso shots, sweet cocoa powder and tartly-sweet bits of orange peel to add even more flavors. And here are some of the new lunch items, I'm so lo

Smart Cares, I'm not kidding

Last Friday, I made a post on my love hate relationship with Smart .  I also said that I would update the post, but instead of updating - I thought of just making a new post on my experience. To be honest, I was expecting to be shut down.  I have been shut down by Smart a couple of times when I complained of their interrupted and non service days.  So with my recent complaint, I just wanted to vent out. I exchanged messages via DM with #SmartCares on twitter.  I was frustrated most of the time because it seemed they didn't read through my messages.  I had to repeat and send the messages again for them to understand my situation. But yesterday afternoon, I finally got through to them.  This was their reply to me. I was honestly so surprised and happy at the same time.  I never expected a telco to give back what they took.  In all seriousness, I am still in a bit of shock.   As of the moment, the P50.00 has been credited already. May I just say?  I think

BDO: We find ways (to take your money!)

The only reason why I bank with BDO is the convenience of their numerous branches and long banking hours.  Everywhere you go there will be a BDO branch for sure. Another thing that I find convenient is their BDO app that can send money to other BDO account without enrollment.  It's very convenient! But lo and behold when I read a blogpost that BDO will start charging P10.00 for every *send money to an UN-Enrolled BDO account* transaction, it got me thinking. Why the hell do they need to charge P10.00 for this transaction? Do they want us to waste our time and line up at the branches?  If yes, then why make an app that helps your customers?? I find it stupid really.  Really really stupid.  I mean, the money just goes around their system.  It's not as if the money transferred is to another bank!  It's within the SAME BANK!! Here's a screen shot from their OFFICIAL Facebook Page My question is - ARE THESE CHARGES VALID?  Who approves these kinds of charge
