The Tale of the Coffee Jelly

I was supposed to keep this for myself. This was the story why I always smile every time I see coffee jelly from Starbucks. And by the time I'm writing this, I'm trying my best not to smile, it was a success nonetheless because the smile I was containing burst into laughter.


Once upon a time (last year), I went to a rainy morning travel to the center of the country to meet two lovely friends. It was indeed one of the happiest day of my life (though I was a bit stressed then), thanks to them for cheering me up. We had a long talk over lunch and yes, we never finished everything that we ordered. One of my bestest friend have to leave soon to meet another friend. Me and the other were left and so we decided to head to Starbucks for a coffee and further chattering ( I guess coffee is just an excuse, cause our real purpose is to chat). 

It took us a while in walking to find the place ( excuse us, we're not familiar with the shop's location - we've met halfway folks).  To cut the story short, we headed to the counter and ordered our drinks. Chocolate Chip Cream (grande) for me and she opted for the Christmas offerings. While on the counter she asked if they can swap her order for a Coffee Jelly for the same higher price with an additional penny as I can recall and that would make the drink venti. Everything was settled, we waited and had our drinks. Off we go to the seats.

We had a wonderful day full of chat and a baby (from the other table) playing beside us in between. When she's about to finish her drink with only jellies left, she realized that her drink wasn't venti but just grande. We burst into laughter!!! What else can we do? She's done with it. LOL. 

I think what made us forget to check the size is our eagerness to catch up with each other in person. And since then, coffee jelly never fails to  put a smile on my face. I always think of her whenever I let  myself indulge a tall, grande or venti.

Why I wrote this? Because it's a bliss to have immortal awesome memories shared with friends. Let's meet halfway. Shall we?

  6. This is funny sis. Ganun talaga pag busy sa chikahan that you forget silly things. I remember my friend and I forgot to pay our bill before and we realised it too late. We asked my sister who worked in the area to pay for us the following day! Kaloka =)

  7. haha! kakatawa nga mga ganyang kwento. You just made me miss my barkadas in Pinas. I have so many memories similar to this. One that is really, really classic is when we were talking about something and someone from the group mentioned the word "kamaynilaan" and then one of my very pretty but-not-so-smarty barkada asked (in all seriousness and curiousity) "Kamay nino?" Just remembering now made me chuckle :)

    hay... good times!

  10. It does sound like you had a wonderful time! :-)

    Memories with friends are definitely special. I have fond memories with people who are my friends since high school and we still laugh about them until now.

    And yes, it's not the place or the food... the "catching up" is more important. :-)

    Have a great week, Sey! God bless :-)

  15. Aww haha, that's funny but heart-warming at the same time! I miss catching up with friends; I rarely have the time now that I'm part of the corporate 'working dead'. :| I think this calls for a new job. :)))
