The Starbuck has launched its Chinese New Year cookies and I decided to sample their cookies. There are 3 types of cookies, namely Kumquat cookie, sesame pineapple cookie and pumpkin seed and kumquat cookie. Each cookie comes in different colour packaging, red, orange and burgundy red. Each box comes with 10 cookies. The slightly expensive cookie is the sesame pineapple cookie costs at $16.80 while the other 2 cookies cost $15.80. On average basis, each cookie costs $1.60.

The sampling cookies are not displayed on the store but they can be sampled upon request. I approached the crew . The crew was very polite. Not only that, the crew was generous to offer me the full size cookies.

In the store, I could only taste 2 flavours. They were sesame pineapple cookie and kumquat cookie. Both cookie has the size of $1 coin and thick of 1 cm. The sesame pineapple was coated with black and white sesame seed outside and wrapped with pineapple filling. The pineapple filling was still young and did not add must colouring. The pineapple cookie did not have must flour coating so I was consuming sesame seeds and pineapple filling. As I bite the cookie, the sesame seed crust was still crispy. This combination of pineapple cookie was unique.

The next flavor which I had tried was the kumquat cookie. It was the original shortbread cookie but it has citrus peel. As I bite the cookie, I tasted the rich tangerine. The cookie was not too rich in butter flavor.

Surprisingly, when I asked for the last flavour which was the pumpkin seed and kumquat cookie, the crew was not able to offer me as they did not have the sample in the store. I decided to move to other outlet and ask, still there was no store. I have left my contact with one of the branch manager store and hope I could try the last flavour.

Between the 2 cookies, I gave both flavour equal ranking. I like the 2 cookies.

After hanging around with friends, decided to grab some snack before going home. I ordered Espresso Frap and Tri Sandwich. The espresso frap was good. The coffee was really strong in flavor. It was not overly sweet or bitter. The cream on top was really fresh and nice, not greasy at all. The sandwich was not bad too. The bread was soft in texture. The ingredient was fresh. I can even tasted the cheese, a perfect combination. Overall, the food was good.

Luxuriating in a cup of coffee/ tea that costs as much as $6 per cup is something that is quite out of my league. However, after a long day on Fri, I decided against a heavy dinner and simply repose at this quiet Starbucks joint in Orchard Point.Tucked away in a charming quiescent hideaway, the seating area is on an elevated platform accessible with a flight of stairs.

Luxuriating in a cup of coffee/ tea that costs as much as $6 per cup is something that is quite out of my league. However, after a long day on Fri, I decided against a heavy dinner and simply repose at this quiet Starbucks joint in Orchard Point.

Tucked away in a charming quiescent hideaway, the seating area is on an elevated platform accessible with a flight of stairs. I liked that it is hidden from the prying eyes of passerby and away from all that clatter of the barista. Perhaps it was a weekday evening, there were only a few tables occupied. There are limited sofa seats but once we got our hands on these, we ensconced ourselves in its comfort and basked in each other’s company in dalliance. As I bought the tumbler, I am entitled to the free small drink, bought the mocha ice blended.

i went to starbucks to buy my favourite drink, their green tea latte. As it was a hot afternoon, I opted for iced blended with whipped cream. It was really good. the green tea flavor was not too strong, it did not overpower the latte taste. the drink was very smooth despite being iced blended. The whipped cream goes really well with the drink, gives it an extra creamier taste. very refreshing on a hot afternoon.

Contrary to popular belief that this place is only for coffee and the snacks, I actually had a very filling meal here. The sandwiches were big and filling with goodness to the brim. Of course, the guage for a good sandwich is the moist level content, which this one passes without much difficulty. The coffee was good too, freshly brewed. Enjoyed the quiches, esp the veg and cheese one, which was good.
