They went overboard.

Do you like how you look? Or do you want to look like someone? Are these merely thoughts, or will you really do something about it? To what extent?

If you don't know, one of my life's goal is to be pretty, because I was an ugly and fat kid, and I think everyone says so behind my back. :( However, I don't really have the guts to do much, apart from makeup, fillers and botox currently.

On the contrary, some people would do anything for vanity, at any costs. And that is really bizzare and weird!!! :(

What happened to Miley Cyrus?

Ah, I'm sure most of you read about her or at least saw her photo or music video being shared on facebook right? I don't usually follow news about singers or stars, but her news have been all over the internet and I can't help reading some.

Okay, for those who still have no idea, this is how she looks like in her latest music video - super short haircut and wearing almost nothing.


Some people said it is because Hannah Montana grew up.. But... I don't think so.. I think she went a little crazy? Please don't hate me if you're her fan..

I mean, it is okay if you wanna look pretty and sexier.. But I don't see why she has to have this haircut? And wear (nothing) until like that? (Haha singlish, but this expression got the right 'feel' for what I'm thinking.)

It is not only how she looks, but her career and direction of her career at stake! I'm not sure she became like this before or after her break up? But her old reputation is definitely gone and her new reputation is for the porn industry instead. I am thinking, is that really what she wants????


Here's some articles about her, you may want to check them out..

Starbucks Secret Menu (35 drinks)

Have you seen your friends talking about drinking butterbeer, ferrero rocher frappuccino, red velvet frappuccino and other weirdly deliciously named drinks on social media? Well, I have, and I realised that we can get these drinks from starbucks!


There is this secret menu created by dedicated baristas and enthusiastic customers. This list is not listed in the stores, but if you know the recipe, you can ask for them.. Lucky me found this list and I can't wait to share all these yummy-looking drinks with you people!

Some of these have become popular and wide-spread, but you should know the recipe as asking for a drink by name will not be familiar to some baristas. You won't want getting a weird drink right? Bookmark this page if it helps :)

I have discovered even more recipes (apart from the 35 in this post) and there will be a second and third blog post for this starbucks secret menu.. If I'm not wrong, there is like almost 100 recipes! I'm still compiling the menu and trying to remove the repeats, so please be patient and check back soon for more menus!

With that, enjoy this 35 drinks on the menu!


1. Caramel Apple Frappuccino

This one can taste like caramel dipped apples, or even like a slice of cinnamon-scented apple pie topped with caramel. Delicious! For a more pronounced caramel flavor, try ordering (if the caramel ribbon crunch frappuccino’s dark caramel is available):

  • Apple juice to the first line

  • Whole milk to the second line

  • Cream base (4 pumps for venti, 3 pumps grande, 2 pumps tall)

  • Dark caramel (3 pumps for venti, 2 pumps grande, and 1 pump for a tall)

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (3 pumps for venti, 2 pumps grande, and 1 pump for a tall)

  • Caramel ribbon crunch pieces

  • Caramel drizzle

  • Get it with whipped cream and cinnamon dolce topping

If that seems like too much caramel for you, try asking for:

  • Cream base to the first line

  • Apple juice to the second line

  • Caramel syrup (2 pumps for venti, 1.5 pumps grande, and 1 pump tall)

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (2 pumps for venti, 1.5 pumps grande, and 1 pump tall)

2. Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino


Orange and vanilla go so well together. What’s not to like? When summertime refreshers are available, try ordering a Valencia orange refresher blended with the vanilla bean frappuccino base. Whipped cream on top goes well here. Very simple to order, but only available seasonally.

For other times of the year, try asking for:

  • Orange mango juice to the first line

  • Milk (soy, dairy, whatever you prefer) to the second line

  • Cream base (4 pumps for a venti, 3 pumps grande, and 2 pumps for a tall)

  • Classic syrup (4 pumps for a venti, 3 pumps grande, and 2 pumps for a tall)

  • Scoop of ice, then blended together

  • Get it with whipped cream on top

3. Nutella Frappuccino

For the numerous Nutella lovers out there, order:

  • Coffee frappuccino

  • Hazelnut syrup (1.5 pumps for venti, 1 pump for a grande, half a pump for tall)

  • Mocha syrup (3 pumps for venti, 2 pumps for a grande, 1 for tall)

  • Whipped cream blended in

Top it with whipped cream and/or caramel if you so desire.

4. Spiced Apple Chai

This one is delicious and simple to order. You can have it either hot or iced. It tastes like a spiced apple cider, and it’s very refreshing when iced. I’ve actually been able to just ask for an iced/hot apple chai at most places and the baristas know what to do, but I’ve run into a few locations where they’re a little confused.

If the barista is unfamiliar, just tell them it’s a chai infusion in apple juice after asking for it hot or iced. That’s how most ring it up on the register, too–although I’ve also seen some do a chai latte minus milk and with apple juice, which will be a bit more expensive. It varies depending on location. Try it with caramel drizzle and whipped cream on top if you’re getting it hot.

5. Mint Chocolate Chip Frappuccino

You can try this flavor a number of ways. Our favorite is a mocha frappuccino with peppermint syrup (number of pumps according to your taste) and java chips blended in! You could also try:

  • A green tea frappuccino

  • Peppermint syrup (1-4 pumps, adjust for taste and size)

  • And java chips (1-4 scoops)


  • A green tea frappuccino

  • Java chips

  • Mocha syrup (3 pumps for a venti, 2 for grande, and 2 for tall)

  • Peppermint syrup (2 pumps for a venti, 1 pump for grande and tall)

If the green tea is too strong, just ask for less green tea powder in the future. Find out which combination is your favorite!

6. Peach Ring Tea

Remember those sugary circular peach ring candies? This reminds us of those. Make sure it’s summertime and refreshers are available.
Ask for:

  • Half Valencia orange refresher and half passion tea

  • No water

  • Peach syrup (6 pumps for trenta, 5 for venti, 3 for grande, and 2 for tall)

7. Caramel Snickerdoodle Macchiato

This one is reminiscent of a caramel covered snickerdoodle cookie. Ask for an iced soy caramel macchiato, upside down (this makes it so the flavors blend together better) with vanilla syrup (2 pumps for venti, 1.5 for grande, and 1 for tall) and cinnamon dolce syrup (2 pumps venti, 1.5 grande, and just one for tall).

8. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frappuccino

This dessert drink is as close to cookie dough as you can get with Starbucks. It’s a bit complicated.
Here’s what you order:

  • Chai creme frappuccino

  • Get it with with soy milk

  • Whipped cream blended in

  • Java chips blended in

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (3 pumps for venti, 2.5 grande, and 2 for a tall)

  • Chocolate whipped cream on top

  • Mocha drizzle

9. Ferrero Rocher Frappuccino

I can’t get enough of those hazelnut chocolate sweets, and now I can have them in drink-form!

  • Double chocolate chip frappuccino (or java chip if you want the caffeine)

  • Hazelnut syrup (2 pumps venti, 1.5 pumps grande, 1 pump tall)

  • Mocha syrup (3 pumps venti, 2.5 pumps grande, 2 pumps tall)

  • Hazelnut drizzle on top

If you happen to carry around any of the candies, you can drop them in when you get your order! The whipped cream on top is your choice.

10. Caramel Popcorn Frappuccino

This sweet drink is buttery and tastes like cracker jacks! It’s very simple, too; especially if it’s when they’re serving salted caramel drinks. Just order a toffee nut frappuccino with caramel drizzle & whipped cream on top, and top with sea salt (somewhere between one and two packs depending on taste and size).

11. Nutter Butter Frappuccino

You know, the cookies shaped like peanuts with a peanut butter filling? This tastes oddly similar. Order:

  • Hazelnut frappuccino

  • Blend in a whole banana

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (3 pumps for a venti, 2 pumps grande, 1 for a tall)

  • Toffee nut syrup (3 pumps for a venti, 2 pumps for grande, and 1 for tall)

With or without whipped cream on top–this nutty drink is tasty.

12. Peach Cobbler Frappuccino

The icier version of a hot slice of peach cobbler. This drink is all about the mix of vanilla, cinnamon, and peach flavors. Mm-mm. Order:

  • A vanilla bean frappuccino

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (2 pumps for venti, 1.5 pumps grande, and 1 pump for tall)

  • With peach syrup (4 pumps for venti, 3 for a grande, and 2 pumps for a tall)

  • Whipped cream blended in

  • Cinnamon dolce drizzle on top

  • Get it with whipped cream on top

Add a pump of classic syrup if it’s not sweet enough for you.

13. Blackberry Cobbler Frappuccino

This fruity drink is pretty and it tastes great! This is one of the combinations that is thanks to Starbucks introducing their fruity summertime refreshers. Order:

  • A vanilla bean frappuccino

  • White mocha syrup (2 pumps for a venti, 1.5 for grande, and 1 pump for a tall)

  • And a scoop of freeze-dried blackberries blended in

Top with whipped cream if you’d like!

14. Cadbury Creme Egg Frappuccino

Ugh, the cloyingly sweet fondant of Cadbury Creme Eggs is my arch-nemesis. And now I can gorge myself on this drink year-round! Here’s what to order:

  • Java chip frappuccino

  • 2 shots of espresso for venti and grande, 1 shot for tall

  • Vanilla bean powder (4 scoops for a venti, 3 scoops grande, and 2 scoops for tall)

  • Caramel syrup (1 pump for a venti-sized drink, and .5 pumps for grande and tall)

  • Vanilla syrup (2 pumps for venti, 1.5 pumps grande, and 1 pump for a tall)

Whipped cream on top is optional, but recommended. Likewise for the caramel drizzle on top.

15. Rainbow Sherbet Frappuccino

I love rainbow sherbet in the summer. This one is for those with a sweet tooth. It’s only available while Starbucks is doing their refreshers. For a grande, order:

  • A strawberries and cream frappuccino made with orange refresher instead of strawberry purée

  • 3 pumps of cream base

  • A scoop of vanilla bean powder

  • A pump of raspberry syrup

  • A pump of peach syrup

  • Add ice and blend it all up

Again, this is one of the drinks on our list that is only available seasonally.

16. Black Forest Frappuccino

Berries and chocolate is such a tasty flavor pairing. And now you can have it in drink form! If mocha cookie crumble frappuccinos are available, order one of those and add raspberry syrup (2.5 pumps for venti, 2 pumps grande, and 1.5 pumps for a tall) rather than the vanilla syrup it normally has.

17. Banana Chocolate Chip Frappuccino

A thick & delicious dessert beverage. Try getting it with whipped cream on top! Order:

  • A vanilla bean frappuccino

  • With java chips (3 scoops for a venti, 2 scoops grande, and 1 for tall)

  • And a whole banana blended in

18. Caramel Macchiato Frappuccino

Now you can have your favorite two-layer drink in frappuccino form (albeit without the two distinct layers). Try:

  • A vanilla bean frappuccino

  • With 2 shots of espresso

  • Extra caramel drizzle on top, whipped cream optional

19. Key Lime Pie Frappuccino

Perfect for a tart treat in the summertime, this one will only be available when their refreshers are on the menu. It’s a long one; here it is:

  • Cool lime juice to the bottom line

  • Whole milk to the second line

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (1.5 pumps for venti, 1 pump grande, and .5 for tall)

  • Vanilla syrup(3 pumps for a venti, 2 pumps for a grande, and 1 for tall)

  • White mocha (3 pumps for a venti, 2 pumps for a grande, and 1 for tall)

  • Whipped cream blended in

Add toasted coconut flakes if those are available on top, along with whipped cream to top it off!

20. S’mores Frappuccino

This popular campfire snack is now in beverage form! Try ordering:

  • A java chip frappuccino (double chocolate chip works if you’d rather not have the caffeine)

  • Toffee nut syrup (1.5 pumps for venti, 1 pump grande, .5 pumps for a tall)

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (1.5 pumps for venti, 1 pump grande, .5 pumps for a tall)

  • Whipped cream blended in

  • Whipped cream and cinnamon dolce sprinkles on top

21. Red Velvet Frappuccino

This one is simple and delicious. Order a half white chocolate mocha, half regular mocha frappuccino with 2 pumps of raspberry syrup (or 3 for a venti) and top with whipped cream!

22. Neapolitan Frappuccino

Triple the flavor in this creamy treat. Order:

  • A strawberries and cream frappuccino

  • Mocha syrup (3 pumps venti, 2 grande, and 1 pump for tall)

  • Vanilla bean powder (1.5 scoops for venti, and 1 scoop for grande and tall)

  • Get it with chocolate drizzle and chocolate whipped cream (if available) on top

23. Oreo Frappuccino

This is super simple to order. Just ask for a double chocolate chip frappiccuno with white chocolate mocha in the place of the regular mocha syrup.

24. Zebra Frappuccino

Do you like white chocolate and regular chocolate? For the best of both worlds, try asking for:

  • A mocha frappuccino

  • Made with half white chocolate mocha and half regular mocha

  • Add java chips

You can also try this combination (with or without the chips) in non-frappuccino iced drinks, or even hot drinks!

25. Butterbeer Frappuccino

As if it came from Hogsmeade, try ordering:

  • Creme frappuccino base with whole milk

  • Toffee nut syrup (4 pumps for a venti, 3 pumps for grande, and 2 pumps tall)

  • Caramel syrup (4 pumps for a venti, 3 pumps for grande, and 2 pumps tall)

  • Add caramel drizzle

Get it with whipped cream if you’d like.

26. Cake Batter Frappuccino

This one might sound weird, but it works and is very simple to order. It’s just a vanilla bean frappuccino with almond flavoring added. Alternatively, vanilla bean powder added to a vanilla frappuccino with added almond flavoring. Unfortunately, the almond flavoring isn’t always available anymore.

27. Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino

The frozen, drinkable version of a cinnamon bun:

  • Vanilla bean frappuccino

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (3 pumps venti, 2 pumps grande, 1 pump tall)

  • White chocolate mocha syrup (3 pumps venti, 2 pumps grande, 1 pump tall)

  • Cinnamon dolce powder sprinkled on top

Or if you want something easier to order, ask for a vanilla bean frappuccino with cinnamon dolce syrup added.

28. Banana Split

The frappuccino version of a favorite sundae, order:

  • A strawberries and creme frappuccino

  • A whole banana blended in

  • Vanilla bean powder

  • Java chips blended in

  • Get it topped with whipped cream and mocha drizzle

You can even add caramel drizzle on top of all of that for an even tastier dessert.

29. Creamy Dark Caramel Espresso Frappuccino

This one is deliciously rich and thick. It’s different than the preparation of most other frappuccinos, so be very clear in your requests. For a grande:

  • Get heavy whipping cream (different from whipped cream) blended with just ice and cream base

  • Add 3 pumps of dark caramel sauce to the bottom of the cup, then pour the blended mix into the cup

  • Add a shot of espresso

  • With whipped cream and cookie crumbles on top (when available)

30. French Vanilla

Sweet and creamy. For a grande, ask for:

  • A vanilla bean frappuccino

  • 2 pumps of toffee nut syrup

  • 2 pumps of vanilla syrup

  • Extra caramel drizzle blended in

  • Top with whipped cream

You can also order any drink with a french vanilla flavor just by ordering something with half vanilla and half toffee nut. Go wild!

31. Turtle Frappuccino

Tastes just like the holiday chocolate turtle candies, and is a nice substitute if you’re missing Caribou Coffee’s frozen turtle mocha drink. Here’s what you order:

  • A java chip frappuccino

  • Toffee nut syrup (3 pumps venti, 2 pumps grande, and 1 pump tall)

  • Whipped cream on top

  • Caramel and mocha drizzles on top

32. Twix Frappuccino

Inspired by the chocolate coated caramel cookie candy bar, this is another drink with a few variations. Try:

  • Caramel frappuccino

  • Java chips

  • Hazelnut syrup (2 pumps venti, 1.5 pumps grande, 1 pump tall)

  • Whipped cream blended in

  • Coat the cup with caramel sauce

  • And add mocha drizzle on top


  • Caramel frappuccino

  • Chocolate syrup (adjust amount of pumps with drink size and taste)

  • Whipped cream on top

  • Topped with caramel and mocha drizzles

  • Sprinkled with crunchy caramel pieces (either from their holiday-time brûlée drinks or the summertime caramel ribbon crunch)

Or you could even ask for (grande size):

  • Java chip frappuccino

  • Add a pump of caramel syrup

  • Blend in half of a chocolate caramel pretzel (from their pastry selection if available, and not all locations will blend in whole food items like this)

  • Whipped cream and caramel drizzle on top

  • Add in the rest of your pretzel to stir with

33. Horchata Frappuccino

If you’ve never had this spicy traditional Latin American/Spanish drink made with rice milk (or tigernuts in Spain), then you’re missing out!
For the frappuccino version, try:

  • Chai creme frappuccino

  • Cinnamon dolce syrup (3 pumps venti, 2 pumps grande, 1 pump tall)

  • Vanilla syrup (1.5 pumps for venti, 1 pump grande, half a pump for tall)

  • Chai (4 pumps venti, 3 pumps grande, 2 pumps tall)

  • Sprinkle cinnamon on top

Or for a simpler version, order a chai tea frappuccino with cinnamon syrup added, and garnish with cinnamon powder on top.

34. Caramel Nut Crunch Frappuccino

This one is crunchy, nutty, and packed with caramel flavor, but not as strong of a caramel punch as the caramel ribbon crunch frappuccino. It’s just about as sweet, though.

  • A vanilla bean frappuccino

  • Toffee nut syrup (3 pumps venti, 2 pumps grande, 1 pump tall)

  • Caramel syrup (3 pumps venti, 2 pumps grande, 1 pump tall)

  • Add in the caramel ribbon crunch pieces to the bottom of the cup before pouring in the blended mix

  • Add whipped cream and caramel drizzle on top

  • With more caramel crunch pieces on top


35. Snickers Frappuccino

Just like the candy bar. Ask for:

  • A java chip frappuccino

  • Toffee nut syrup (3 pumps venti, 2 pumps grande, and 1 pump tall)

  • Whipped cream on top

  • Caramel drizzle lining the cup and on top

  • Add mocha drizzle on top for even more chocolate flavor (optional)


Have you tried any of it yet? Tell me what's nice if you've tried ok? :D
