A Cup Was Beckoning (and maybe more...)
Just In Time Before the Store Closed
Finally, At Home
Running After a Cup of Starbucks
Faced with the problem and a need (which may be a myth) to finish off the last drop of 87 grade gasoline accidentally induced inside our car and to fill it back to 89, we had to drive to the farthest Starbucks branch we could find within 20 kilometers of our house.
We actually had at least 3 of them within 10 kilometers.
We chose to take the one at Dundas and Trafalgar, after realizing that 2 of the 3 close their doors by 10 PM, (weirdly, the one in Dundas and 3rd line closed at 9:45PM) and the one nearer us at Dundas and Churchill, close at 11PM.
"11 PM? That's unheard of in Makati!" I quipped. "We were just starting to order at 11:30PM and stay til 1AM for another cup or two" we recalled our good ole Makati or Ortigas tambay days.
Well, welcome to the GTA (the Greater Toronto Area for the uninitiated).
We were home after running on empty and filling it up with oil.
By the way, on a per liter basis, the Starbucks coffee we had at close to $4 for a 16 oz was more expensive than the oil we bought.
$ 1.10 per liter of gasoline to $ 7 of Starbucks coffee. Not right. Not right at all. Tsk tsk tsk.
And some cup of coffee can even be made from a $ 20,000 coffee machine. I wonder how much one cup would cost.
Starbucks is testing on $ 1 per cup with free refills starting TODAY. Nice.
Thank you for all the prayers for our Lola Meding. I wanted to treat you all for coffee, but coffee is darn expensive.
This guy* didn't mind. As he made and purchased something from all 171 Starbucks branches in Manhattan - ALL in ONE DAY!
*- Yes! He's the same guy who now is living in an Ikea branch.
