Meeting Place

mocha motion and choco surprise A good place to meet friends these days is at Serendra. It’s not yet complete but it gives a cozy atmosphere. We usually dine outside. For some reason, even if it’s kind of hot nowadays, it doesn’t feel humid. It could be how the buildings were positioned that it gives a good air circulation. Anyway, what I don’t like here is the basement parking is always full. You have to park at Bonifacio High Street across. In no time, parking will be a great problem here. But one of the things I like in Serendra is of course the very dainty dessert house, Cupcakes by Sonja. The moist and soft cupcake, the very generous serving of icing, the tiny sweets on top. I guess the best seller is Choco Surprise. For the third time last night, we have to wait for our order because it’s still being prepared at the kitchen. By the way, it’s a see-through kitchen and it’s fun for the kids to watch the bakers on the go. Sometimes the cupcakes prove to be too sweet. I could do well with just the cupcake. Expensive, yes. So, maybe they can lessen the icing and make the price a bit lower. :)

do you think they are doing a good job?

Sitti who?

The on-going mall tour of the Philippine Jazz Festival has been a wonderful musical experience. While Sitti did play, other bands and artists are also showcasing their unique stuff to bring the local brand of jazz to the limelight. New movers and shakers, as they say.

Smog-covered vegetables?

Stuck in traffic in this smog-filled street, I wondered about the goods being sold here. There were vegetables and meat being sold right on the street, right beside the smoke coming from stalled jeeps and cars. It’s normal to see these goods being sold on the street, very close to traffic. I just wonder how clean these vegetables and meat are. While it may be cheaper to buy from these stalls than to buy them from groceries, there is quite a huge compromise on health and sanitation.

Delicious Coffee and Ensaymada at Tiendesitas

Great spot for relaxing at Tiendesitas. The Charchoal Roasted Coffee is one of our favorite Tiendesitas spots. It’s a great place to hang out and unwind. It has a great selection of coffee, tea and pastries. Try their ensaymada with cream cheese and guava jelly. Delicious! Oh but wait, this stall is listed as Philippine Mountain Coffee Collection in its Tiendesitas page. Whatever name it goes by, it’s not difficult to find. Just go to the Food Village. Enjoy!

Happy Astronomy Week!

When was the last time you’ve visited the Planetarium? When you were nine or ten? How about the last time you’ve seen Mars rise up with the moon? This week is a great way to catch up on the stars – the heavenly kind – with the start of National Astronomy Week.

For this year’s theme, the Astronomical League of the Philippines looks to the future with “Shaping the Future of Philippine Astronomy”. Check out the 1st ALP Astrophoto exhibit at the Planetarium starting on the 18th and until the 24th. If you missed the stargazing session last Sunday. There’s two more -first is on the 21st at the Science Centrum in Riverbanks, Marikina (starts 7:30PM) and another on the 24th at the Rajah Sulayman Park in Baywalk (starts 6:00PM).

This is the perfect time for you to catch up on the stars so enjoy the National Astronomy Week!

Ring in the year of the pig at Eastwood

Love, career, family… as the year of the pig rolled in last Sunday, find out what to expect this year through 12 divination tools that are available at Eastwood in Libis.

There’s the Saiwala, Tarot and Angel Cards, Feng shui experts, palmistry, graphology and Aura vibration, Astrology, Runes, Dream Interpretations, pendulums and even numerology. Check out the 12 mediums from Feb 17 to 23, 6pm onwards in front of Shanghai Bistro in Citywalk 2. I think the entrance fee is P300.00

To bring in more luck as they say, you can try the Prosperity Tree at the Central Plaza. Write down your name inside the Ang Pao (red envelope) and toss it up the prosperity tree for good luck and good fortune throughout the year. The envelope is free for customers with P500 single or accumulated receipt from any Eastwood establishment.
