I love weekends and this is how P and I spent our weekend last week. Having a good conversation over our favorite Happy Lemon drinks and CBTL’s pastries while arguing on some showbiz issues is the best way to have fun, chillax and moment with my boo.

Marj, Bedalyn and I were patiently waiting at Krispy Kreme in Bonifacio High Street branch because were so early on our event last, last week. Yeah, this is somehow a late post, but then it’s better late than never. So, as I goes on… here are the yummy and sweet Krispy Kreme’s creations that we ordered during our stay there.
I tried the new Caramel Glazed
Bedalyn had the Snickers Doughnut
While, Marj had the Original Glazed
Aside from the sweet doughnuts of Krispy Kreme, I love the interior design of the store – cozy and clean. It’s really a cool place to hang out with friends and even if you wanted to be alone. Quiet and relaxing, plus there’s a free Wi-Fi, so you can bring your gadgets with Wi-Fi along and be connected with your online life while enjoying your dough nuts.

New “Bayan” bread product to generate proceeds for WFP’s school feeding Programme.
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the Philippine’s largest bakery chain, Julie’s Bakeshop, have entered into an innovative partnership to fight hunger in the Philippines.
Signing of the contract for the team up of Julie's Bakeshop and WFP
Julie’s Bakeshop is launching a new product called Julie’s Bayan Sliced Bread, and will donate two pesos to WFP for every loaf of Julie’s Bayan Sliced Bread sold. From this team up you’re hitting 2 birds in one stone, because aside from the “Bayan” Bread that you will buy, you are also fight hunger in the Philippines. 

While nationwide in scope, proceeds from this initiative will exclusively benefit school children in conflict-affected areas of Central Mindanao through WFP’s Emergency School Feeding (ESF) programme, which provides on-site nutritious meals in targeted elementary schools in Lanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur, and Maguindanao. WFP implements its school feeding programmes in partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development and the Department of Education as well as the non-government organization Community Family Services International.

The ESF programme helps to bring children back to school after a protracted period of displacement in 2008/2009. With the participation of Parent-Teacher Associations, it promotes a sense of normalcy in the lives of the families of the school children and enhances their participation in class.

I must admit, I am not a fan of a coffee for a long time, I remembered mom told me that if I’ll drink coffee at the young age, it will make my hair gray on which I am afraid of. In addition to that, when I tried to drink coffee for the first time, it gives me a bad impression of its bitter taste which I am not fond of, but not until the day that I purchased my coffee from Starbucks, quite expensive coffee but I love the taste of the Java Chip Frappuccino that awaken my sleepy soul and recharge my energy to last for a day. And from that day, the coffee story begins…

I am now visible in some coffee shop around the metro, not just to have coffee but also to taste their delectable cheesecakes and pastries, to enjoy their non-coffee drinks while having a good conversation with my bf, to accompany and listen to my friend’s rants and horrible stories, and most of all, just having my favorite drink and read the latest issue of magazines, from food to fashion, lifestyle to housekeeping, sports to showbiz entertainment and so on.  I have been to Starbucks, Coffee Bean and the Tea Leaf, Seattle’s Best and Figaro. Every one of them has a special space in my heart, because every one of them has something special that I always look forward on every visit.
Last Friday (November 18, 2011), I was invited to the Grand Opening of Figaro Barrington Place Branch located along Congressional Avenue, Quezon City. It was my first time to attend on a coffee shop opening and I really had a great time being present at such as early as of 9 o’clock in the morning event. Through pictures, I’ll tell you guys what had happened on such blessed day.
Of course, in every store opening there’s always a ribbon cutting, but before the cutting of ribbon, the Priest said a little prayer and blessed the Figaro Coffee Barrington Place Branch. And here we go… the Ribbon Cutting - with the Franchisee owner and his son.
After that there’s a throwing of candies and coins for Good Luck and Prosperity. And they said that, if I have those candies and coins, I will be lucky, too. So guys, I think you already know what I did? Ha-ha. I still have the coins and candies on my bag upon writing this.
And then they gave us money exclusive just for the Figaro’s Dry Run to be use in purchasing anything available in the counter
My favorite part… E a t i n g  T i m e!!!
Aside from the food, I love how cozy and spacious the Figaro Barrington branch. It’s so home-y and quiet. Well, this could be a great place to hide out and it’s also applicable for any business meeting.
To know more about Figaro you can visit their website at http://www.figarocoffee.com/ and become updated on their Facebook Fan Page https://www.facebook.com/figarocoffeecompany and Twitter https://twitter.com/#!/figarocoffeeph.

Congratulations Figaro Barrington Place Branch!

Starbucks one way of spreading love and spreading the spirit of Christmas is through Cheer Party. Starbucks held a couple of hour to have fun and enjoy Starbucks delightful coffees and pastries. So am I so lucky and grateful to witness that awesome party last November 15, 2011. A Cheer Party was held at 6750 Ayala and that was my first time.
The Starbucks was loaded of people lined up to get their coffee for a buy one take one promo plus 10% on all Starbucks collectibles and/or for personal use tumblers and mugs. In addition, there’s a band performing live to entertain Starbucks’ customer. 
Yay! Cookies and more…
 
Aside from that they also had a raffle that makes you win Starbucks item like tumblers, mugs and many more. You better look on the below schedules, maybe the next Starbucks Cheer Party could be in a place near you.

Happy Monday!

Love,
Aylin
