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…

Starbucks Mother Ignacia Tomas Morato Q.C.

[2018-11-22] Traffic was better than usual so I arrived more than an hour before the scheduled meetup time so I decided to drop by the Starbucks nearest the restaurant. It was my first time in this Starbucks branch and as luck would have it, a friend from college also decided to visit this branch for…

Starbucks Matalino Diliman Q.C.

[2018-11-21]I arrived more than an hour early for a meetup so I decided to go to the nearest Starbucks. The parking here can accommodate quite a number of vehicles but that is achieved by doing a ‘Sokoban Game’ type of parking. Meaning getting out can be an issue. Expect your coffee relaxation/break to be interrupted…

Starbucks Entertainment Mall (MOA) Pasay

[2018-11-18] After a satisfying meal at a restaurant in S’Maison, my daughter and I went to the newly renovated/expanded Starbucks to have some coffee (americano with almond syrup) and tea (iced shaken ruby grapefruit black tea with honey & iced shaken hibiscus tea with pomegranate pearls). The drink I like most of the three would…

Starbucks – Drive Thru Bonifacio Global City Taguig

[2018-11-16] Starbucks Cheer Party 2018 – Walked from SMX SM Aura to this branch to meetup with a friend and join the cheers party at this branch. You need to order a Christmas drink to join the cheer party. I ordered a hot toffee nut latte. There were raffles for free journals. Free small cups…

Starbucks Reserve Mall of Asia Complex (MOA) Pasay

[2018-11-10] After a relatively less satisfying lunch at an unlimited Korean BBQ nearby, we went for coffee in the Starbucks Reserve at Conrad Hotel. I didn’t even know that Starbucks has ‘branding’ for its branches. This branch at S’Maison/Conrad Hotel is a nice one. My daughter said there were drinks only available at ‘Reserve’ branches…
