The Hubby and I were finishing lunch at a resto in Evia.

Me: Um, can we have dessert? (Sabay smile and bat ng eyelashes)

The Hubby: Sure! Order ka na. Coffee lang ako.

Me: Ah. Well… Diba we saw this new Cheesecake something place near the escalators kanina…

The Hubby: Ahhhh. (With a raised eyebrow) Ok, sige. Basta may coffee sila ha.

Me: Ay sige, never mind, next time nalang.

The Hubby: (Smiling) Sige na, lipat na tayo. (Asks for the bill and then checks his phone)

Me: Hmmm. (thinks in silence for awhile)  No, never mind nalang. Mukhang pricey eh. (With pursed lips naman this time). Wag na muna tayo magdessert today.

The Hubby: (Sighs, and motions to follow-up the bill.) Hay naku. Knowing you, hindi ka matatahimik. Let’s go.

Oh, he knows me so very well. 😊 Continue reading “The Cheesecake Fairy Flutters to Evia Lifestyle Center, Daang Hari”

Stationed away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping scene in the Glorietta complex is an edgy Itallian coffee shop called Caffe Pascucci. I was skeptical when I first tried it, but it has become another “workmode” place for me in-between meetings in the area, or a haven when I need to take a break from shopping errands.

I was able to visit the relatively new Madison Galeries (yes, that’s just one “L”) Lifesytle Mall in Alabang Hills on one of my catch-up sessions with a friend of mine.  Coffee drinkers that we are, after our big lunch at Rub Ribs and BBQ (wasn’t able to take pictures, sorry!), we decided to continue our chat over this interesting coffee shop on the ground floor called “Manila’s Best Coffee”. Talaga ha? Sige masubukan nga… Continue reading “Manila’s Best Coffee at the Madison Galeries Lifestyle Mall, Alabang Hills”

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.
