It was a calm afternoon and a slow day for me after school so it made me thought to myself, this is probably the best time for me to go binge eating and have some “me time” haha! The first food spot that popped inside my head was . This gem of a bistro continues to draw loyal crowd of repeat customers seeking the comfort of its honest to goodness frappes and pastries. The cafe has that distinct characters of artsy-ness, a bit left-of-center, but never intimidating, and it remains approachable even its pastry chef, Honey Ching, who is fond to play with flavors of all sorts!
It’s not my first time here though, but every time I go to this quaint little cafe it just feels like my first time because something new always seems to pop out in every nook of the shop. For the first time, I tried their (Php110) (it’s also available in 8 oz.) and I didn’t regret it! I swear, I’m not really a big fan of green tea, but this one (next to my fave kitkat green tea flavor lol) is an exception! The HOT matcha is also a MUST TRY! I also tried their (sylvannas coated with crushed oreos)(Php40) and their (Php55). I just love oreos and it was surely an oreo overload for me!!! Hahaha. What I love about this place is that they offer a selection of chalkboard specialities that changes regularly. As of now, they’re offering sandwiches and how lucky I was to have a bite of their (Php75). Simply delish! (Oh yeah, the sandwiches menu was made on-the-spot by yours truly haha! I’ve been into basic typography and lettering lately.) All their pastries and sandwiches are freshly baked on the premises and are of outstanding quality. The warm and friendly atmosphere makes it a perfect choice for a first date!

Hong Kong is my first out of the country destination this year! And, I’m so happy that my cousin and I were able to maximize our 5-day trip. We went to a lot of places (Disneyland, Macau, Ocean Park, Victoria’s Peak, Tsim Sha Tsui, Jordan, etc.) and took lots of photos so I apologize for the lengthy post that you’re about to read.

I'm the type of person who's always up for anything, so when my blogger best friend Pearl Aton told me about her idea of a "James Dean-ish inspired shoot", I excitedly said 'YES'. Looking for an outfit wasn't that tricky since all I needed was a leather jacket (got mine from my dad's closet lol), a white shirt, and jeans to achieve that certain look and feel. However, it was a risky shoot because we've decided to use something that we aren't used to using in our everyday lives– a cigarette haha!
