I’ve been craving for chicken bbq lately and I can’t think of any place that has one other than Chowking at the back of Crowne Plaza Hamdan. So last weekend we decided to try theirs.

 For starter we’ve ordered ???… I’m sorry I totally forgot the name. 

My Chowking chicken bbq. I love it swear!!!

And of course hubby’s Nasi Goreng.

Indeed a great food they have but for the service, let’s just say it’s not worth leaving a tip.

Here’s the rating (5 is the highest, 1 is the lowest)

Food:  4 (no doubt their food is yummy)

Ambiance: 2 (the place is messy and the tables and chairs are a bit narrow you can’t move freely)

Quantity: 5

Dirhams power: 79.00 Dhs /900.00 Php

Current Mood: Amazed

OMG!!! Starbucks is launching their first ever Starbucks Via Ready Brew. You can now enjoy your favorite coffee at home or in the office without rushing to the nearest shop. Yup, you heard me right. They now have an instant coffee. Starbucks guarantee that their product is different from any other 3n1. It is the same highest-quality 100% Arabica beans, full-bodied and flavor, just like the Starbucks coffee we love.


They come in 3 varieties, Colombia, Italian Roast and Decaf Italian Roast. According to their website, the product will be launched in the Philippines by mid September in all of their branches nationwide.

I can’t wait to try it when I get back home, coz too bad they don’t have it here in the Middle East yet.

Retail price are as follows:

                                   pack of 3 – 130.00 Php

                                   pack of 12 – 450.00 Php 

Wow that’s whooping 38.00 Php a cup. More reviews as soon as I get a taste of it.

I know eyebrows were raised when the theme was announced. But we love coffee. So what does it take to achieve a coffee themed wedding? I don’t know. We wanted to have the coffee shop feel because for us it is intimate and romantic.

The theme is not as easy as an instant 3n1 coffee because, first we cannot have the reception in a coffee shop….you can figure this one out. Second, the hotel (bohol tropics resort) won’t allow us to bring in barista of our choice. (Yes they will, but expect a hefty fee on corkage) So I was thinking if I will still go with it or maybe change it to winter wonderland since it is Christmas or travel vintage themed. But it will be not US. We already put our heart and soul to coffee themed wedding. So be it! 

We’re thinking of ideas and paraphernalia to achieve the theme, from favors, invites, decors, centerpieces, cakes etc…etc…etc! PRE-NUPTIAL PHOTOS. 

Though we haven’t made our minds yet to have one, I was still thinking a pictorial at Starbucks while enjoying our favorite coffee. Another idea is shooting at the park with our jogging outfits. If you read our love story you know why… Here’s an inspiration
