Waking Up as September Ends

As the famous song says "Wake me up when September ends". 

It's the last week of September, how time flies I didn't even notice it. There are a lot of things that happened, as well as celebrated this month amidst the pandemic so allow me to share them with you.

A few days before September ends, Starbucks released its latest collection, the Starbucks® X alice + olivia collection. I am fortunate to receive one of the featured product, Starbucks X alice + olivia Stainless Steel Travel Stace 16oz Tumbler and two alice + olivia + Starbucks straw sets.

With Stacey’s fun and sophisticated eye for design, the highly anticipated Starbucks® X alice + olivia collection showcases two whimsical designs, including the iconic “Stace Face”, and a modern interpretation of the “Stace Face” with a colorful twist. Featuring a vibrant assortment of drinkware and lifestyle accessories, the collection is a celebration of femininity, designed to inspire women to feel empowered by their personal style.

Globe National GDay

September is a special month for all Globe Telecom subscribers as we celebrate the National GDay every 17th of September. In the past two years, National GDay was only celebrated virtually. Thanks to the fast data connection with Globe, we can watch GMusic Fest at the safety and comfort of home. There are lots of surprises and promos including free Globe Rewards for loyal customers. I received P917 Globe Rewards for being with Globe in the last fifteen years. 

Some of the highlights of this year's National G Day includes the Globe GIF Land, GMusic Fest and lots of promos as they launched the new Globe One App. Check out more details on https://www.globe.com.ph.

Globe and FoodPanda Pink Box Treat

I also received this nice treat from Globe Telecom and FoodPanda. The pink box comes with yummy snacks potato chips from Lays and Pringles, Hershey's Chocolate, Ferrero chocolate, Mountain Dew and Pepsi. There's also a nice canvas tote bag, water bottle and travel size alcohol.

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls using the Maya All Purpose Flour

Who loves cinnamon rolls? Whenever my husband and I go out to do our grocery shopping which only happens once or twice a month, I make sure to drop by a famous cinnamon bakeshop. Their sticky cinnamon rolls topped generously with frosting are so yummy. It's so good, I would order a box of four for take out. So when I saw that The Maya Kitchen offers coffee bread pairing class, with cinnamon roll on the cover I immediately signed up for the virtual class. 

Cinnamon Roll Recipe

I never thought cinnamon rolls are easy to bake. What's best with homemade cinnamon is that you can adjust the sweetness and fat content. I use coconut sugar which contains healthy fats that are known to prevent high cholesterol and heart disease. You can also add toppings that you love. I use almonds for this recipe.

Despite all the challenges, there's always something to be grateful for. Waking up in the morning is one. The opportunity to learn new things in the midst of the pandemic is truly wonderful. The chance to connect with family and friends even virtually is such a blessing. I hope you enjoy reading this blog. Leave a comment below and share your thoughts.
