It’s nearing mid November. In the Philippine culture Christmas celebration starts when the month ends in -ber, so Christmas spirit is here as early as September. These past days, nights are getting longer and mornings are getting colder… these are signs of Christmas. Too bad economies world wide are in not so good state and people can feel how challenging it is for their day to day.
But despite all the gloomy outlook for the coming 2009, Filipinos are naturally happy people (they smile a lot) and they can be crazy over so many things…just like having a Starbucks coffee everyday. The coffee card is back and people are likewise back patronizing holiday beverages from Starbucks. Despite the financial crisis… a Php 150 (around 3USD) for a cup of coffee is not a problem to shell out, and this is all for the planner craze. Believe it or not I won’t be part of it without the planner 😛
I love dosing my self with caffeine but it’s never good to get it from Starbucks if not this time of the year. Go get your self a cup now! …and don’t forget the sticker.
