Starbucks Happy Hour.

The hottest afternoon in the Philippines reached 39.2 C (thats roughly 102.5 F) yesterday. HOT!!! Thank goodness for this new marketing scheme of Starbucks. Getting it's concept from bars and restaurants who sell beer and other alcoholic drinks at a discounted price during a specific period of time, Starbucks slashes 50% off the prices of their frappuccinos from 12 to 2 in the afternoon.





I went to Starbucks a little before 12 and there were only 3 of us. A few minutes later (right after giving my order), there was a crowd already! Probably office people in the vicinity having their lunch break.





Sad that this offer runs only until May 8. But the way things are going, I'm pretty sure Starbucks will extend its promo period. I got the Venti Coffee Jelly Frap.






For my blog friends from other countries, just curious.. Is your local Starbucks doing the same now? :)
