My Lovey is a frequent Starbucks (decaf) frappucino drinker & has been collecting Starbucks Bearistas for the past 3 years now. Every time we would go to Starbucks & they have a new teddy bear, we would always get one. No miss. So when she found out that the January 2012 limited edition Chinese New Year Bearista was out of stock after just being out less than a day, she was understandably heartbroken! :(
Upon inquiry & a shout out to the nearby branches, we found out that only 4 are given per branch. And the baristas almost always grabs the limited pieces before they even hit the racks.
My baby was a good sport about it, but me being me, I wanted to make her happy. So I tried my friends who might have contacts! Fortunately, my good friend Joy got it on the first try! (Thank you so much Joy!) She was able to trace one to SM fairview -which is like baguio to me. @_@ So I called the number Joy provided & begged for the precious bear to be sent to the branch nearest me.
And finally, after more than a week, it finally came yesterday!!! <3
I’ve been keeping this ploy a secret ever since I got the number from Joy. First, I wasn’t sure of they would reserve it OR even send it to me. So I didn’t want my baby to be doubly disappointed. So when she came home from school yesterday, she was pleasantly surprised. Yay! <3
Thank you so so SO much, Joy. We super kaduper LOVE you! :-* And starbucks, please make more bears! <3
