  • What Does Origami from Starbucks Look Like? Of course origami from Starbucks is not going to be your typical folding paper. Instead, origami from Starbucks looks like this.Starbucks Origami is a personal drip, single serve coffee in a foldout packet. Assemble the packet above a cup, pour in hot water, and get fresh brewed coffee. Convenient, fast, ...
  • A Dew is a Dew Seemingly, no matter where you go a Dew is a Dew is a Dew. Even in China, I knew this drink was a Mountain Dew (even with the hyper-neon bottle).
  • Starbucks Incheon Airport Being stuck in South Korea in the Incheon area for a day wasn’t such a bad situation afterall. There’s enough to keep you occupied, and the Incheon Airport itself is huge with many shops to pass the time. Of course there has to be a Starbucks at an airport, especially ...
  • Missed Out on Jipangyi While stuck in South Korea for a day due to plane problems, I saw this at the Grand Hyatt pool side snack bar and didn’t know what it was. What was this candy cane shaped item?Turns out, this “candy cane” is actually upside down and is supposed to be oriented ...
  • Starbucks Nathan Road, Hong Kong One block away from BP International in Hong Kong is a seemingly small Starbucks location on Nathan Road. Once you enter however, you’ll see a Starbucks about twice as big as regular shops. There’s the front window section which is typically sized. Then there’s the coffee bar. Then there’s the ...
  • Starbucks Ristretto Bianco While in China and Hong Kong, I noticed a few different menu items at local Starbucks. One of these items was a Ristretto Bianco drink. Not knowing what it was, I ordered it. After a few sips, I thought to myself, “flat white.” Sure, enough, Ristretto espresso shots and foamy ...

So much so that one wheel’s outer covering was lost, and the other is starting to split. I know you can replace the roller wheels so I searched Amazon for “samsonite replacement luggage wheels.” I don’t understand why, but ...
  • Starbucks Venetian Macau Before you enter the casino area at the Venetian Hotel in Macau, you need a boost to fortify your gambling frame of mind. No better way than making a stop at the 24-hour Starbucks right next to the casino entry.A good sized location but not huge, but no matter if ...
  • Starbucks Kerry Center, Beijing China Before heading out for our #HIChina15 tour, I looked up Starbucks locations near our hotels. Luckily, one of the newest Starbucks flagship stores in China is at the Kerry Center. This two story location features a very unique interior design with coffee bars on both floors.It’s here I sampled the ...
  • #HIChina15 Begins with the Threat of MERS The kickoff to our family trip to China, Macau, and Hong Kong was marred with the threat of MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). Planned months in advance, this trip was going to happen and unfortunately, the outbreak of MERS coincided with our #hichina15 travel plans. Flying on Korean Airlines, there ...
  • Nike HyperFresh Really, it’s HyperFr3sh with the number 3 replacing the letter “e” but you know what Nike means.Kinda interesting looking, but I passed. Not a fan of that fat heel look though I like that tropical motif. Available in Hong Kong right now and supposedly coming to the States in July.
  • White Flower Oil Cures All So this white flower oil mentioned on Fresh Off the Boat is a real product, even sold on Amazon. You down with the Bak Fah Yeow?
