Philippines: part four

After eating a wonderful meal at Cafe ___________ in Pasig City, we headed over to meet with a friend of my friends in Marikina - Ara Mina. She owns her own coffee shop - Cafe Mina and also happens to be major actress on Filipino TV and movies. She was so nice and hospitable. Her cafe had the best vanilla latte I could find in the Philippines. I wondered why!?

After hanging out with Ara, we went to Embassy to experience the night life in Manila.

Philippines 2008: part three - Cafe Juanita

I was so busy doing promo visits in Manila and the only free time I had was to eat. Thankfully and I had a group of friends who knew the best places to eat in Makati and Quezon City. One place they were continuously raving about was Cafe Juanita in Pasig City. When we got the chance, we headed over there (it's hard to find) and the rest is history.

It's so good I almost don't want to let other people know about it because I'm afraid it might get overexposed and commercialized - it's a jewel in Pasig City.

Philippines 2008: part one

Visiting the Philippines was so awesome! Some of my fondest memories from my childhood were from there. It was cool coming back home and reminisce on the things I did during my childhood. I got to enjoy some of the "night life" and lots of great food.
