Getaway with Starbucks this summer!

by - Saturday, April 13, 2019

I'm not usually the one to plan vacays this season, even if my birthday falls in the summer. Because of the scorching heat, I usually plan my travels during the 1st and 4th quarter of the year. Even if I have no plans to hit the islands soon, I'm glad that Starbucks brought one closer  - the Siren's island!

From above, the carnival vibe of SM Mall of Asia's music hall immediately gave me the feels. It felt as if I'm back in Disneyland because of everyone's excitement! 😄

To be able to enter the Siren's island, I only needed to present my Starbucks PH app in the registration booth. They gave me the map and vouchers after so I can start wandering the corners of this manmade island.

Each station harped on Starbucks latest season offerings. For my first stop, I visited the most noticeable landmark in the hall, the Caramelt Mountain. This station pays homage to one of the brand's newest drinks, the Dark Caramel Coffee Frappuccino.

I enjoyed putting my shooting skills to a test even if it's not my core strength. If I'm not mistaken, I only got two out of five balls in the pot. At least, I tried! LOL

The Mixed Berries Forest is such a blockbuster! For this booth, I had to pick and collect berry-colored balls for a minute. By the way, this vibrant station resembles the new Starbucks Mixed Berry Frappuccino with Pomegranate Pearls. 💜

My favorite station of them all, the Triple Mocha Fortune! For this station, a designated barista fortune teller asked me to pick one card from her deck of fate. I was unlucky to draw the "Try Your Luck Card" but I still managed to get a few tickets from this booth. This station honors one of Starbucks' latest blended drinks, the Triple Mocha Frappuccino.

The Red Velvet Magic Shack best gave the carnival feels because this game is present in almost all the fairs I've been to. While I wasn't able to shoot all the hoops, I know that the new Red Velvet Cake Cream Frappuccino is waiting for me in the end. 😅

I've combined my winnings from all the stations to redeem this Starbucks travel pouch in blue. I can't wait to use this on my future trips! 😍

After this, I also redeemed the food and drink voucher so I can try what Starbucks has to offer in the coming months!

What's a carnival without a souvenir shop? The Siren's Souvenir Shop featured lines of merchandise that's too cool to not score! The "A Day in the Island" collection transports us to the beach with its tropical designs. I'm already eyeing the tumbler with the pop socket! 💖

These reusable tumblers will also be available in the coming months. They've launched this as a part of Starbucks effort to promote sustainability in stores. I can only imagine putting my cup of freshly-brewed Kopelani Blend very soon.

Meanwhile, the Gold collection captures the season's glow with its shimmery tumblers. This collection is nearly identical to my fave Nature collection from Starbucks because of their identical elements.
