Starbucks paid tribute to Singapore’s birthday with this local exclusive beverage, with key ingredients such as brown sugar jelly, coconut rose sauce, all in the same cup to create what appeared to be a hybrid of Chendol and Bandung (rose syrup with milk). The drink was actually quite enjoyable, with sufficient texture and flavour that I really appreciated when I want a cream-based / caffeine-free drink.

However, what really stood out for me was not the special beverage, but the Shiok drink bag that imitated our familiar drink bag that often came with the coffee shop drinks. The bag was actually quite useful for future takeaway of drinks or other small accessories, but I just hope that it would not break open too easily.
