Motorino Pizza Alabang, Muntinlupa

[2019-Oct-16] I arrived at Alabang too early so I decided to go to Decathlon first.  I was intending to buy the no-lace running shoes on sale I saw on their website. I walked to the highway to get a ride to Alabang Town Center – ATC. The commuting route, unfortunately for those that do not…

Starbucks Reserve Rockwell, Makati

[2019-10-13] After a very satisfying early lunch at Chef Jessie Rockwell, we went here for some tea. @starbucksph is the 2nd stop of a mini food crawl with my daughter. My drink was matcha. For me this is regular good matcha and was better than what my daughter @thegastronomersdiary had, Chai Latte. My daughter @thegastronomersdiary…

Nitro 7 Coffee & Tea Bar Ortigas (Galleria), QC

[2019-Oct-15] This day was supposed to be totally just a day for chores. Specifically go to several places to acquire a car part that the ‘casa’ is permanently out of stock. My car is a 20 year old Honda Civic so brand new original parts are hard to come by. I got a message the…

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Ortigas (Galleria), Quezon City

[2019-Oct-15] Just came from @NITRO7.COFFEE @robgalleriaortigas but still feel like I need more coffee (well, I used to drink a liter at a time) so dropped by @cbtlph @robgalleriaortigas to claim a Caramel Ice Blended Drink courtesy of @alwayshungryph. This branch has glass walls so easy to see who’s inside the shop and also see…

MOKA Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

[2019-10-01] If you’ll be trying out Moka for the first time and you like coffee, try their Salted Coffee !!! Also the best way to enjoy this coffee variant is to drink it immediately without mixing it up. You can also enjoy taking photos while having it 🙂 By the way, if you prefer unlimited…

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Double Dragon Pasay

[2019-Oct-01] After Cafe Moka BGC and  Honolulu Cafe Robinsons Place Manila, I decided to use the CBTL eGift Electronic Voucher that a fellow foodie (AlwaysHungryPH) generously provided. I have a tendency to forget so better to use it than lose it 🙂 It was for a specific drink, “Sunrise Ice Blended”. The drink had a…

Cafe Tribu Victoria de Morato, Tomas Morato, QC

[2019-Jul-15] I started my day with a food meet up at Taft (Cafe Noriter) in front of DLSU. Next, I then went to BPI M.H. Del Pilar to pickup a replacement card. My transaction was done within minutes (thankfully) around 2pm. My next event/appointment was scheduled at 6pm so there is still a lot of…

Institute for Coffee Excellence

[2019-May-18] Basic Manual Coffee Brewing Workshop With all the new ‘excitement’ and anticipation we see for establishments offering drink varieties other than coffee (some coffee places and fastfoods even started to include milk teas in their menu!), coffee and coffee places seemed to have been relegated to the background. Though I also like and drink…

October 2018 Tokyo Day #1

I am not really into travel much, so on this 5 days 4 nights trip I am just ‘the companion’. My daughter planned and made the itinerary and I just handled the financial side like making sure we have enough Yen & my credit/debit cards will be accepted when I use them in Tokyo. And…
