Tsujiri Philippines: Experience Real Matcha

Before the ASUS Zenfone 4 Launch, I was hanging out by myself in SM Mall of Asia. A lot has changed since I’ve last been there (can’t remember when though). The ASUS event would be held in the SMX Convention Center so I found myself walking to S Maison and to Tsujiri Philippines. It was my first time to return to Tsuijiri since it’s opening week.

I was there very early at 10:30-ish AM. It was a different experience vs. the jam-packed opening week). I was naturally the first and only customer at that time. I sat on the green velvety couch feeling very at peace. I love it.

Tsujiri is a dessert place. Careful not to mistakenly order sushi or katsudon. Funny story, a family of six went inside and asked for the lunch menu. HAHA. I was glad they were hungry because I want the place all to myself. I wanted some alone time.¬†ūüėÖ

If you know me, you’d know I liked weird food and drinks. Some people do categorize matcha as weird because it’s bitter and green. However, I am absolutely in love with matcha.ūüíó All forms!

My favorite Tsujiri menu item would be the¬†Tsujiri float (Php 195 for a small cup and 205 for a medium). It’s like a matcha ice cream and an ice blended matcha frappucino had a baby. Yes, the items are a bit pricey but considering the realness of the matcha. It’s definitely worth it. Plus, you’re in S Maison for crying out loud where almost everything is above Php200.

Tip: Bring a light jacket. S Maison really know how to maintain its air-conditioning. It’s like the north pole. Not complaining though. Bring a light jacket so you’d enjoy your matcha ice cream even more.

Fujifilm X-A3: To buy or not to buy?

Have you ever had that lingering itch to buy something? For the last three weeks, I have. I was looking at the Apple Watch Series 2 but I decided it wasn’t really my style. I just got the super cheap Xiaomi Band 2. Now, I’ve been looking for a camera that will suit my needs¬†as a blogger. The candidate: the Fujifilm X-A3.

Coffee Break: Raspberry Coffee Frappe

Starbucks Frappe
Coffee frappe grande 3 pumps raspberry whip blended in

Going to Starbucks has¬†become a necessary habit. Recently, the more stressed we become, the more we need coffee to help us to stay focused and to give us our daily dose¬†of happiness.¬†A¬†cup of coffee (specifically a frappe) is a cup full of¬†joy. I know, I know some of the more frugal people will say that Starbucks is overpriced and spending your salary for a cup of coffee is just crazy.¬†Let’s agree to disagree, okay? I demand Starbucks-shaming to stop, please!

This drink is a discovery of my friend, Jonats. If you want to try something different with your coffee, try this P170 drink. The raspberry syrup will tingle your tastebuds like no other. Adjust the number of pumps depending on your preference on sweetness. The drink will literally quench your thirst especially with the super summery weather we have now!

Watch out for more food posts! ūüôā
