Bakerzin’s Tales of Valrhona Schokolade: Christmas 2017

Bakerzin offers foodies like you tons of adventures in a single menu book that’s full of delicious photography. The actual foods themselves are even tastier with just the right amount of herbs. Whatever you crave, you can count on Bakerzin for great meals and desserts. My top picks include the black olive salmon fried rice, roasted chicken, oxtail soup (their oxtail soup is really top notch), Bali rice, the millefeuille, souffle, tiramisu and many other dishes. I’d like to know yours.

This holiday season, Bakerzin presents “the Tales of Valrhona Schokolade” as their Christmas desserts series that you oughta try. For the sweet tooth, there’s the White Castle cake that magically blends almond and caramel with white chocolate. Dark chocolate lovers can have it with fruity delights lined on the top. And then the sizzling chocolate lava cake enters, filled with warm peanut butter. That makes a fine choice too. I have yet to try the hot chocolate but that sure looks amazing in the promo picture.

What I enjoy about Bakerzin at Christmastime is the lovely jazz standards that continue to entertain us amidst the whimsical interiors. Such a jazzy setting. Add it to your holiday list and have a delightful meal!

Starbucks Christmas Drinks in Jakarta 2017

It’s always a delicious holiday season at Starbucks, for their starry Christmas drinks make super festive treats. Over in Jakarta, Starbucks presents four toasty beverages to jazz up your Christmas, and they can be enjoyed as both a latte and a frappuccino.

  • Toffee Nut Crunch
    Fans of toffee nut and caramel can delight in this nutty holiday drink. It’s not too sugary so it tastes just right.

  • Vanilla Nougat
    I did not have high expectations prior to trying out this beverage – mainly ’cause nougats aren’t really my thing – but the vanilla nougat latte got me addicted. The warm vanilla tone and aroma can instantly transport you to Winter Wonderland.

  • Mocha Praline
    Perfect for mocha and chocolate lovers. A cup of mocha spiraled with chocolate sauce on the top is bound to entertain your tongue. While the toffee nut crunch and vanilla nougat are only available at a select number of Starbucks now, the mocha praline is here to stay.

  • Holiday Tree Dark Mocha
    Inspired by a classic Christmas tree, this is one unique dark mocha. It’s designed as a mocha drink with a fresh green tea whipped cream. Such a whimsical look!

So what’s your Starbucks Christmas vibe for today? Are you feeling a little latte or frappe?

In celebration of timeless film and style icon Audrey Hepburn’s birthday, I present you a list of my top favorite Audrey movies, from the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s that made her character Holly Golightly as famous onscreen as she was in Truman Capote’s novella to the delightully produced Roman Holiday, where she played an adventure-craving European royalty. Do share yours as well.
