Missing Starbucks coffee


The day is about to end in less than an hour and here I am craving for a Starbucks Java chip frap with blended whipped cream. Yes that’s my signature Starbucks drink. For a hot coffee fix, my favorite is a venti cup of Hot White Mocha, quite a sugar rush compared to a macchiato or cappuccino but I won’t have it any other way.

It’s been almost 2 months now since I left the call center industry and of course along with that parting, I likewise have to say goodbye to my coffee fix, not only is it exorbitant now considering our current income capacity, but I wont have a need for it since I can now afford the luxury of sleeping like a regular person. Goodbye to graveyard shift!  But here I am, missing my caffeine fix. Or is it really the coffee that I’m missing? It certainly is not the work, believe me I am so not meant for the call center industry. Perhaps more than that highly fattening, expensive frappuccino, I miss the people I used to work with. I miss the laugh trips and the bashing sessions, yeah I probably miss those people who became my friends.

I miss all of them and though I may not see them all the time (perhaps some I would never see again), I’m grateful for the times I’ve shared with them and the friendship we’ve built (no matter how fleeting), over a cup of coffee.

    now, i’m craving for starbucks coffee! i also like java chip; likewise with other blends like iced caramel machiato and white choco moccha frap; i like it twice blended–at any time of the day! hehe..

  9. eRLyN says:

    @ edelweiza – yeah pag sa call center talagang kailangang magkape. kaya lang naman ako nags-starbucks dati kasi ayoko ng nescafe kasi may after taste.

    @ docgelo – wow, im humbled at your visit. thank you po doc. btw, baket po pala twice blended? mas thin out ba kapag ganon sir?

  10. heff says:

    Having mentioned “Call Center”, were you also into smoking with the rest of the pack while on coffee breaks?

  11. Badet says:

    Java Chip frap is also my signature drink, without the whipped cream though.

  12. eRLyN says:

    @ heff – for a while yes, but after some time, i decided to quit smoking. :)
    @ badet – wow mas health conscious ka pala, cant have it without the whipped cream eh. btw, i linked you up ha. hope you can link me up as well. thanks :)
