Welcome to Coffee Break with Krissie!

Welcome to Coffee Break with Krissie!

I’ve decided to start a new segment for this blog with my really good friend, Krissie. The idea is very simple, and it’s to check out coffee from different local coffee shops. Please remember that we’re not really experts (obviously), but we do drink coffee a lot– actually, we are powered by coffee and are dependent on it, and this is just something that we have been meaning to do for quite some time now. Basically, we will just be…

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | Climbing Mt. Paliparan, Tanay, Rizal

Nowhere Girl Vlogs | Climbing Mt. Paliparan, Tanay, Rizal

Last June 24th, my work friends and I trekked Mt. Paliparan. We’ve been planning for it for nearly a month, and to be honest, excited though I was, the thought of trekking again after over a year of no rigorous physical activity frightened me. Nonetheless, it was an incomparable and unforgettable experience which I am grateful to have been a part of. To be even more honest, this was the first mountain I reached the peak of. My previous hikes…

22 Prime, Discovery Suites

22 Prime, Discovery Suites

22 Prime is the perfect place to take one’s significant other on a special date night or anniversary. It is also the right place to seal business deals or enjoy a brunch with one’s family on a Sunday morning. Located on the 22nd floor of Discovery Suites in Ortigas Center, 22 Prime is a high-end steakhouse that offers mouth-watering dishes. Here are some of the dishes I’ve tried on my visit: For starters, we were served lobster bisque which is…

Ban Be Ca Phe, Antipolo

Ban Be Ca Phe, Antipolo

Ban Be Ca Phe is a Vietnamese-Filipino restaurant located at Upper Antipolo. This charming space is just a few meters shy from Robinson’s Antipolo and offers very affordable Vietnamese dishes. The cafe, technically, has three parts: a veranda, and inside a dining area at the right side and a traditional Vietnamese sitting area on the left side, which, in my opinion, gives so much Kumbaya vibes. LOL Kidding aside, I find the interior both creative and unique. I went here last May…

Coffee Book, Congressional Avenue

Coffee Book, Congressional Avenue

  Coffee Book is located along Congressional Avenue in Quezon City. I went there yesterday with some friends I met at Artsy Cafe. I met some new friends too and had a blast. The cafe’s interiors were more of a restaurant type than the cozy and comfy cafe type that I was expecting. But true to its name, they have two tall built-in shelves filled with books of various genres perfect for bookworms.    Now to the best part: FOOD. Coffee…

Artsy Cafe, Maginhawa

Artsy Cafe, Maginhawa

Artsy Café is a lovely nook situated in the heart of the Maginhawa food district. Lavishly decorated in vintage pieces, it gives off a very retro-vibe to anyone who comes in and while themed cafés are common, especially in the stretch of Maginhawa, what sets Artsy Café apart from others is their menu and affordability. These are the dishes that we were able to sample when we visited: We were first served with Kani Salad, which costs only 195php. It…

Sunday

Sunday

I honestly had no idea how I fell asleep the night before but I was sure Ge and I were listening to random Disney songs till we gradually fell into a deep slumber. LOL. But I got up at around 9am after being awakened by the smell of breakfast courtesy of Ge’s baby sister, Tricia. Haven’t had that kind of breakfast in ages and it was really satisfying. Soon after breakfast, we visited their neighbor to whom they introduced me…

Buntot Palos, Pangil, Laguna

Credit goes to Ge Ja I have not been anywhere remotely fun in weeks. My life has revolved only both at work and at home. But I have been looking forward to this weekend’s getaway for ages since the Daraitan trek. As far as I know we will be trekking with a lot of people, but a lot has also cancelled on the last minute making our group as small as six people. We decided to call our newly formed group as…
