We went on a MILKTEA RUSH at SM CITY MANILA
Milktea is my guilty pleasure. It is something I buy when I'm sad, happy or just feel like rewarding myself. I've tried most if not all of the brands out there in the market and I have to say just like no two people are alike, when it comes to milktea I would have something I would prefer over the other based on my mood and taste for that day. For instance, there are days that I crave for Coco, days that I crave for Gongcha, Macao, Infinitea, Chatime and more.
Good thing SM CITY MANILA brought all of these stores together and i got to indulge and solve my milktea cravings.
