Evia Lifestyle Center, Daang-Hari
No: 0917-310-0231

After a good workout with the kids in Evia’s atrium (see post here), we went around exploring the Venetian-inspired second floor of Building B.  The Baby Ball was already getting sleepy, so we decided to settle down with a cuppa for hubby and some sweet stuff for the Princess and me in the instagram-worthy Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. (warning: photo-heavy post!) Continue reading “The Vanilla Cupcake Bakery at Evia, Daang-Hari”

Family Time at Evia Lifestyle Center

After seeing how the Evia Lifestyle Mall has expanded from the photos I took (see post here), the hubby and I scheduled family time there so he and the kids could check it out too.  The kiddos had a grand time running around in the air-conditioned atrium, while we had quite the workout running after them.  Continue reading “Family Time at Evia Lifestyle Center”

Workmode at Café Seol Hwa, Noah’s Place in BF Homes

Café Seol Hwa
Noah’s Place, 330 Aguirre Ave. cor Tehran Sts.
BF Homes, Parañaque

Even when we were still dating, the hubby and I would often have study dates for graduate schoolwork, or work dates for, well, work. He would bring his laptop and I would bring mine, and we would burrow in our own to-do lists before we rewarded ourselves with an actual date (usually a movie or a food binge).  We still go on work dates today if work needs to get done on a weekend (this thankfully isn’t often). So, we keep a substantial list of coffee shops or cafes which are conducive for getting things done. We’re happy to have found another “workmode” date place in Café Seol Hwa inside BF Homes.  Continue reading “Workmode at Café Seol Hwa, Noah’s Place in BF Homes”

With all the eating hubs opening up left and right in BF Homes, Parañaque, you can easily have more than a handful of choices when a food craving strikes. I mean, take your pick from all the ice cream shops, bakeries, steak places, coffee shops, cafés, milk tea stores, etc. that this not-so-little southern village has to offer.  Name it, BF Homes has it… at least, that’s what I thought. Not until FCC Southern Créperie came did I really realize that: yeah, BF’s got it all! Continue reading “FCC Southern Créperie: Your fix of sweet and savory crépes”

On Flowers and Milkshakes: 2-on-1 parent time with your child

One of the things I really love about weekends is that we get to spend time as a family.  The hubby and I try to put work aside, and I’m thankful that for most of the year, the Princess doesn’t have to do schoolwork over the weekend.  I admit that often though, most of our attention diverts to the little one during family timeespecially when he’s running around or wants to eat. So, we decided to consciously make an effort to schedule both 2-on-1 and 1-on-1 time with the little Princess. Continue reading “On Flowers and Milkshakes: 2-on-1 parent time with your child”
