I love how there are so many yummy and convenient imported food/drink items are becoming available here in the Philippines. For today, I'm sharing my Starbucks VIA Iced Coffee experience.
Oh yes! You can easily make Starbucks Iced Coffee at home with this convenient 2-in-1 mix made from 100% Latin American arabica beans and sweetened with a touch of cane sugar. Each pack containing 5 sachets is sold for P250 at all Starbucks stores.
The problem I usually have with iced coffee, well not problem, more of an inconvenience, is that I always need hot water to "melt" the coffee first before adding ice. Surprisingly, according to package directions, you can mix the Starbucks VIA Iced Coffee powder into cold water or milk. Now that's convenience! I used a measuring cup to make it because I needed 240ml of either water or milk and I wanted to be exact.
I tried mixing it into ice cold semi-skimmed milk the first time. The powder is so fine it instantly dissolved upon contact with liquid.
During Holy Week last year our whole family was in Guam. One of the places we visited was Guam Zoological Botanical and Marine Garden, also known as Guam Zoo. It's been around since 1977. I know this post is a year late but since we aren't going anywhere this Holy Week I thought I might as well share the experience just in case anyone is travelling to Guam this summer.
Guam Zoo is located right behind Holiday Resort along Tumon Bay in Guam.
It's a petting zoo, so it means you can feed the animals and even touch some of them. You buy animal feed for about a dollar. It's good for almost everyone, lol.
