The Banana Way

Pin It Now!
I love bananas! I love banana cakes, banana jam, fried bananas. I love everything and anything about bananas. And, we got lucky because we found this stall last weekend. Guess what? They sell bananas! You hear me right. Bananas in the mall!

I was really ecstatic when I found their stall in SM City Cebu. The boyfriend and I were waiting for a friend to come out from Odyssey when we saw picture of a banana covered in green syrup (he likes green). So, I knew he wanted to try. Well, the bananas looked tempting so we gave it a shot.

We bought three bananas from Frozen Dipped Bananas on Stick. For P25 you can already get a banana with a syrup or your choice and a dip of your choice. The boyfriend opted for a green apple syrup and candy sprinkled. I chose chocolate syrup and chocolate sprinkles. My friend got chocolate syrup and candy sprinkle for her banana. 

I can say it was really good. It's like you're biting the usual candy coated sweets, but you're tasting bananas in the inside. It definitely is a healthier way to candies. The syrup and the sprinkles were sweet and the banana somehow neutralized the sugar.

We didn't get pictures that time since we just came from a thrifting trip downtown. So, the boyfriend and I decided to come back soon and get some bananas soon. Since I felt so down the other day, I decided to grab some frozen dipped bananas (and Bubble Bee!). 

The boyfriend still got the same banana with green apple syrup and candy sprinkles. On the other hand, I got bananas on cup which cost P45. If you are getting the cup, you will be able to choose two syrups and two sprinkles for your banana. I picked strawberry and chocolate syrup added with candy and chocolate sprinkles. It also looked cute!

What's left of my bananas in the cup. LOL.

They didn't really have any place to eat your bananas, so we went to Bubble Bee Tea House.We tried the bananas and sadly, they tasted weird. They felt squishy. The syrup and sprinkles still tasted great. But, when you get to the core (the banana part), it was sloppy. 

The previous bananas we got from our last visit were great. I think the bananas are starting to rot or maybe they're overripe. Nevertheless, trying it out was really good. I'd still buy one next time. I hope it'll be a better tasting banana.

My dipped bananas with my ultra fave Almond Tea. Yum!

If you are also interested, here is a sketch to their stall. Forgive the awful sketching skills.

It's near the staircase. I hope you get my sketch though. xD

Bubbly Tea!

Pin It Now!
One of my most favorite places ever to hang out is Bubble Bee Tea (BBT) House in SM City Cebu. It is an inexpensive way to cool down and just chill when you find yourself drained with all the walking in SM. For about P 100, you can already order yourself a queen (size) slush with pearls. Their drinks here are sweet. So, if you are craving for a frap-ish drink with sago, then BBT is the place to be.

There never is a single week that I fail to visit Bubble Bee Tea House. My boyfie and I would consider their slush as a life extenders. This is a joke actually. But, we both love their drinks here. We are regular customers here to the extent of even knowing the clerks/waiters. It’s funny because they already know us and would greet us even if they are not in their stall. They already know what we like so they would even order for us.

Another nice thing about BBT is that you can plug your laptop while sipping your slush. This is one of the many reasons why I love it here. Plus, you are also able to use SM’s free wi-fi.

Our favorites. Matcha and Honey Dew Slush! ♥

My favorite slush flavor (evar!) is Honey Dew Slush. This is probably what I would always order every time we go visit the place. Honey dew is sweet and fits those people who have a high tolerance for sweet (like me!). Matcha slush is perfect for those who like Bo’s green tea frap. BBT’s matcha is very similar to that of Bo’s except for the pearls.

The photo above is their queen sized slush. Each of those only cost about P100. It’s not that heavy on the budget. They also have a smaller slush, bumble, which only costs P85.

The Bubble Bee Tea House SM branch only offers drinks to its patrons. They have different flavors and different types (series) of drink to suit anyone’s fancy. They have the milk tea series, slush series, tea series, hot tea series and, their newest, the fresh fruit slush series. For the drinks menu, just check out here.

BBT’s hot tea series is also good. Their Almond Milk Tea smells like bubblegum. I honestly get a high with just a whiff of it.

The yummy pearls.

Bubble Bee Tea House has a main branch which offers not only drinks, but also yummy food as well. Although I have’t really been to the main branch because every time we plan it out something bad happens, the ambiance is said to be cool. You can check out their updated menu at their Facebook page.
