toffee nut madness!

i've been really lazy with OTDs lately,
but i think i'll try to be abit more diligent!


dress from By-Rovski, a piece that i dug out from my closet because it hasnt seen the sunlight for quite some time now :S
a good piece for accessorising with layered necklaces!

spent my evening at a food tasting session at McDonald's at Aloccasia Apartments,
we're not required to blog about it, but i thought i'd share anyway because it was an interesting session!

i've actually never ordered anything from McCafe before,
so it was a first for me today D:


i didnt even know that McCafe had sandwiches on the menu,
and they're actually really yummy!


don't they look delicious?
i especially like the Chunky Chicken and Pesto Chicken sandwiches ;D
and it's definitely a healthier alternative if you dont feel like macs fast food :P

the food tasting session was actually held for us to sample McCafe's new promotional beverages for Christmas,
and here's the first one,


it's called Toffee Nut Latte, and it's coffee flavoured with toffee nut syrup and frothy steamed milk and yummy caramel sauced drizzled over,
even for a non-coffee lover like me, i really liked the taste of it!

one of the managers conducint ghe session, who was explaining to us how a good coffee should look like.

apparently, the milk froth should settle back over the coffee even if it's been disturbed,
and i never knew there was so much to making a good coffee!

and this is Toffee Nut Frappe, which is ice blended coffee with milk and whipped cream,
topped with crunchy crushed cone bits! definitely comparable to any from Starbucks or Coffee Bean, i was really impressed because i never knew McCafe had such good stuff!

was totally enjoying the crunchy cone bits :D

the third of the trio: Iced Toffee Nut Latte, just as good as the other two!
though my personal favourite is now the ice blended frappe!

decadent goodness topped with whipped cream!

the magic toffee nut syrup used in all three concoctions,
then we had a little demonstration on how the latte is prepared, it's really not as easy as it looks because we all got to try our hand at it, and we were pretty sucky! hahaha


coffee art! such funnn :D but this was the professionally done demonstration by the barista, our own versions were much uglier :(

what we started out with, a shot of coffee and we had to skillfully pour in the steamed milk and spoon the milk froth on before decorating with caramel sauce!




here's our masterpieces :D

and mine! teehee.


group picture of us with our creations!

we were presented with a little token of appreciation each too at the end,
with a little expresso cup and macdonalds vouchers to redeem complimentary items! (woohoo! love. but so bad for my diet)

my little prize for being one of the two "winners" of the coffee preparing competition. hehh. it was a miniature porcelain frappe cup! very cutee. didnt take any pictures of it though.

ended the night with chitchat over cinnamon meltz and more McCafe beverages :)
it was a fun session! thanks to McDonalds and Nuffnang! :)

the promotional menu hasnt been launched yet though,
it will be launched next month if i'm not mistaken! and there are also 4 new desserts on McDonald's menu that i've yet to try!
McCafe Singapore has a twitter account so you can follow them for updates and promotions here :D

HAHA one of the McCafe staff posted up a tweetpic of the event on twitter!
why i look so buay song.

explaining to us how the frothed milk should be poured onto the coffee.

alrightss. i'm really sibei boliao :( 4am liao!
gonna get back to freelance. love my efficiency.

and gonna go do my hair with SK tomorrow! woo. hope it doesnt turn out like shit.
followed by a photoshoot for TVD, gonna be shooting some of the new manufactured items, can't wait :) so many things to do, so little time!
