On the late afternoon of Christmas Day, soon after we left our paternal Lola’s house in Calumpang, Marikina City, I with my wife, Tina, our son, Gabby and my brother JC went to Eastwood Mall…
Gabby asked for a grande cup of Chocolate frappuccino and a slice of Oreo Cheesecake from Starbucks. He finished the entire decadent while I shared the Banoffee Pie (one of my favorites!) with Tina. I also enjoyed Dark Cherry Mocha frap and she had a hot grande cup of Toffee Nut.
Then after several weeks of caffeine indulgence, finally I got my 2010 Starbucks Coffee Planner. It’s probably one of the most expensive planners but one cannot purchase it directly; and can only be redeemed via a completed promo sticker card.
Each Starbucks Planner Promo Card requires interested patrons to collect 8 stickers (at 1 sticker per cup of any size) of Holiday blends (Toffee Nut, Peppermint Mocha and Dark Cherry Mocha) and another 8 stickers (or cups) from the usual Starbucks beverages.
I’ve been religiously using the planners from Starbucks for 3 years now and found it so functional to jot down schedules, appointments, small notes and whatnot. I am the type of guy who needs to write down important things in order to avoid missing them. Are we the same who need a pen and paper most of the time ? FYI, I sometimes suffer from selective amnesia, that’s why, LOL!
One of the unique features of the 2010 edtion is its coffee bean shaped marker which I wish to keep and hope would not be lost throughout the year.
For the 2010 planner, the collector can choose from 3 cover designs –coffee beans, coffee blender and coffee roaster which I like best.
The planner also comes with different discount coupons with specified dates.
Now that I’ve claimed mine, I’m just glad to have another partner (other than Tina,LOL!) that can aid me to be more organized.
Come to think of it, I have no plans yet for January 08… Hmmm… do you have any clue what’s worth anticipating with the eighth day of the first month of the year? Abangan!
Who does not want to plan for wonderful travels and awesome dining pleasures all throughout the year?
What are your biggest plans for next year ?
Can you keep schedules efficiently or do you also need someone or something to put everything properly ?
