Cafe Travel

So we went to this new cafe in taft called “Cafe Travel”

and by we, I mean Ronique and Allyza 🙂

This wasn’t really one of those time where we happen to just stumble upon a wonderful place. We actually planned this around January when my friend, Allyza, saw their website and showed it me and Ronique. Right after we explored their site, we were all like:

“We are going here.”

This was the much-needed bonding time we just had to have.

(Being together in classes don’t guarantee bonding Chz lang =)) )

Entering the place, it already felt quite nice and home-y. Actually, it looked like it was taken straight out of Pinterest, or tumblr.

You’ll see a ‘Photo tree’ filled with pictures of people who already enjoyed their stay there. There is like a mini living room right there, so cute!

There are like double bunk beds, except these are mini-cabins where we stay at.

We were first seated at a top bunk sort of place, and this was the view from where we were.

I wasn’t able to take a picture of their menu but it ranged from coffees to frappes to pastries. agh YES PLS.

(oh and they had this one order/person policy)

And the munching begins

From left to right:

1. Dark Chocolate Cake

2. Oreo Cookies Cake

3. Blueberry Cheesake

I ordered the Oreo Cookies cake, Ronique got the Dark Chocolate cake, and Allyza went with the Blueberry Cheesecake. 

They all tasted AMAZING.

The Oreo cookies cake had this creamy texture with a slight tang which really complimented that sweet taste. The Dark Chocolate cake had that balance of sweetness and savor and it was just perf. And the Blueberry Cheesecake had just the right ratio of everything. These were all served with some whipped cream that was super good plus either the chocolate or caramel syrup which really complemented the dessert.

Of course we took pictures!

As you may have seen, there are lots of notes posted on the walls and it is because I guess anyone is free to just stick on what they want to express. I wasn’t able to take pictures of the funny ones but there were lots!

After a few minutes, we saw an empty cabin so we decided to move and spend the rest of our afternoon there.

We spent most of our time just talking and chillin’.

Oh and we watched “That Thing Called Tadhana”

hugot pa more.

This film so funny (/relatable jk) as in. Even if the language was informal, we had great time watching it because it was really funny.

And not seen in the photo, but we were all squished together in front of this laptop like three peas in a pod hihihi

(we were so cute, we are cute HAHAHA)

and my friendzuuh

Personally, I couldn’t stand straight inside the cabin, even Ronique experienced that. Sadly for me and Buch(Ronique), we could not stay upright. But our friend, Allyza, was gifted to be able to stand there chz jk only Labyu Michi~

oh and Stitch!! (Ronique’s stuffed toy from Allyza)

But of course we must go back to reality and this is me saying goodbye to the place.

(or actually just showcasing the view 😉 )

oh and there’s this super cute vintage telephone by the exit.

All in all, It was a super fun day spent with my Chis (what we call each other hihi).

Keeping up with the Belens (Pt.1 – ATC)

When my mom came home from a quick vacay here, we got to spend time with a family we’ve been friends with for a long time.

What we did in our ‘bonding’ day was basically just go to the mall, eat, and talk.

We had dinner at T.G.I.Fridays, and I got this

After dinner, we just went around the mall while our moms talked and talked.

We just met up with them in Starbucks after.

This has been our special date place since 2009 and I really missed bonding with my mom because It’s been a long time since we were able to spend some alone time with each other.

And once we were already seated and we already ordered our food

 

We already have our usuals here and one of the waiters here actually know us and our orders already but he wasn’t present at that time. Anyways, here’s what we ordered:

 
 

20150103_165337For Me:

1. Mozzarella Burger

– this Mozzarella burger is my all-time favebecause I love how it has a big patty that oozes with mozzarella cheese in  almost every bite and some lettuce and mushrooms to complete it. It also comes  with a side salad.

For Mommy:

Cafe Latte For mommy

1. Cafe Latte20150103_165401

– My mom loves coffee and this is the one she always orders here.

2. Chicken Run

– The chicken run is composed of a bread on the bottom, slices of chicken, topped of with some veggies and a white sauce. This tasted so good and feels so healthy because
of it’s white meat. This also comes with a
side salad.


 

And for the both of us

La Pinay (Zoomed in)

The La Pinay!!

 – the La Pinay is a crepe filled with mangoes and chocolate  syrup topped off with vanilla ice cream, powdered sugar, and  some more chocolate syrup. This is like the queen of all  crepes.

After eating, we just spent our time bonding and talking (lots and lots haha) and it really was an enjoyable time because it’s been long since we spent time with just us on a date.

ps: what was happening before I got a nice shot

but of course, let’s not forgot the real reason for Christmas. There’s more to this celebration than just gifts and food because we celebrate Christmas to remember the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

-Isaiah 9:6

Thank you Lord for all of the blessings this year. A Merry Christmas indeed!
