For the last two weeks, my life has been filled with surprises after surprises. I just came back from my Asian trip last May and last week, my bestie surprised me with a gift – a cruise to Bahamas. It was an impromptu trip and I literally got the plane ticket three days before the cruise. Now I am still remembering our great time together, with her and her family, feasting over delicious food, playing on the white sand beach all day, and doing nothing – other than thinking of where I should go next.
During the night, we watched lots and lots of live shows and movies – from Golden Mickey to Pixar. During the trip, our nights were always filled with entertainment. And of course, popcorn played an important role. I mean, popcorn + entertainment makes a lovely duet and I just can’t get my mind off popcorn. Have you tasted Tabasco Honey Butter Popcorn, Cookie Butter Popcorn Cupcakes, or this lovely Birthday Cake Oreo Popcorn? The possibilities are endless but for now, let’s talk about Matcha Popcorn Milkshake. I was a bit nervous when I first mixed the ingredients but I prove myself wrong (again). This milkshake has a wonderful unique flavor, one that you’ve never imagined. And the best part… it is so easy to make and will definitely spoil your day.
