wintermelon (left) and strawberry (right) just recently @ festival mall

not bad again for the wintermelon even the sweetness became less (maybe its because the change of vendor :( ) BUT the strawberry is just okay :( and my expectations for this failed me. why?  i'm looking for the strawberry flavor itself just like cha dao's and chatime but on saibachi,it lacks the STRAWBERRY KICK (even it has the right sweetness).

Razon's Halo-halo

how can i describe this?

it has super fine ice that melts in your mouth. no sugar, it uses the own preserved flavor of banana and macapuno. even the halo-halo is not literally HALO-HALO (because of only two (2) main ingredients), it really tastes AWESOME. when you get deeper, it will becomes sweeter.

Cha Dao's Strawberry MT

  this picture is taken last September 2012 at SM Sta. Mesa.
*located at Ground Floor Cart, beside escalator

 i found cha dao's strawberry milk tea really really really delicious. it is like made from REAL strawberry and not fake strawberry (like stik-o and magic flakes. lol). compare to other strawberry, like chatime.. it only differs in price. XD this is 85php while 105php (i think) in Chatime. 

this picture is taken earlier (12.20.12) at SM  Fairview.
*located at the ground floor of annex across office warehouse and dulcinea

same taste (I GUESS). BUT in sta. mesa *before*, the ice is already mixed while here in sm fairview - the ice is just in the cup SOOO my MT in fairview is not that cold :( BUT still ILOVEIT! they have friendly and nice staff there, even ate gave me a wrong sinker (she's less attentive that time maybe).. i think its fine. but i really want to taste the red something. so maybe next time.


 they have loyalty card *Q*. SM Fairview branch has its own loyalty card while the other one (iHEARTwintermelon) is from sm. sta mesa and valid on other branches written on it.

price: 8/9
Taste: 9/9
flavor intensity: 8/9 (why? i'm searching for its tea flavor. remember, i used my 5 senses here)
xfactor: 8/9
ambiance of store: 7/9 (sm sta. mesa) 8/9 (sm fairview)
 overall: 8/9 (both branch)

Flavor and taste are different!

Taste is physical. Taste is one of our 5 senses. It is a sensory function, in which receptors, or taste buds, found mostly on our tongue receive chemical information. This chemical stimuli received by our taste buds is transduced into electrical signals that are sent to the brain. Once in the brain these electric signals are interpreted into information which we use to gain perception.

We can only taste 5 things; bitter, sour, salty, sweet, umami.

Flavor however, is the combined perception of food using all information received from all five of our senses. During the process of eating, we use all five of our senses to receive physical information from food. Once in our brain, this information becomes the perception. Thus flavor is cognitive, meaning that the recognition of flavor happens post-sensory.

It would be logical, that because we put food in our mouth, the sensory receptor for taste, that taste is the sense we use the most in perceiving flavor. But instead we rely most heavily on our sense of smell. While our sense of taste can only give us 5 pieces of information about a food, our sense of smell can give us a seemingly limitless amount of information.

Both taste and smell receptors receive chemical information. Our sense of touch receives pressure, which is detected by nerve endings in our skin that respond to variations in pressure. The sense of sound is received by a membrane in our ears that vibrates in reaction to sound waves (our ear drum.) Our sense of sight depends on our eyes to detect electromagnetic waves of light, which is transduced into information that we use to interpret images.

Taste is a mere 5 pieces of information, but flavor is infinite. Taste is chemical, while flavor is a mental construct that doesn’t exist outside our mind. 

flavor  = taste & smell

taste = one of our senses

reborn blog. XD

From the "Lazy Bloggger is Awesome", it is now... "I Am A Milk Tea Monster!"

I'm really a milk tea monster now.. i can't help myself to buy one if I have extra money. I even couldn't save money because of this addiction. :(

I tried it once, and twice, and now i long for it everyday. *sigh* i don't even know if this is bad or good. this is maybe my crime, and as for the punishment, i'll share my experiences or my personal rating for the milk teas I tasted.

i wonder if i can get readers. XD
