You know those cafés that seem to be meant for relaxed conversations about life and love, and don’t seem quite apt for planning sessions or business meetings? Those cafés which are small and cozy, homey, tucked away, and serve reeeally good coffee to boot?  If you can’t quite put your finger on such a place, then head on over to Magnum Opus.

After a few shopping errands and a carb-loading pasta and pizza dinner on a Sunday night, I gave marching orders to the Hubby, the Princess, and the Baby Ball (who will soon be a baby no more!) that mall time was over and we should head on home. On the way to the parking lot, I stopped in my tracks when I saw this new gelato shop.  So sorry guys, change of plans: Mag-ice-cream muna tayo!

I’m a coffee shop girl.  My idea of a relaxing afternoon is a comfy seat, a hot cup of good coffee (which is always better if paired with yummy dessert!), and hours of good company.  This is why I’m always on the lookout for places not only with good coffee, but inviting and relaxing atmospheres as well. I’m happy to have found such a place in Bowen 24 Café.

Life would be so sad without pie. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a good pie? I can name a few friends who’d rather not have cake (I still don’t get you, though), but who have their own favorite pies. You don’t like the sweet pies? You can always get a savory one (pizza is a pie, y’all!). So, here’s yet again another reason why BF Homes is a foodie haven of the South: getting your specialty sweet and savory pies at the Pie Kitchen!  Continue reading “Sweet and Savory Pies at The Pie Kitchen”

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

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”

We took the Princess and the Baby Ball to Club Bambino on the Baby Ball’s birthday a few months ago. It was a small space but just perfect for my just-turned-2-year old to use up his energy.
