Caerus Cafe and Bistro

Your beloved neighborhood coffee shop has just moved to a bigger and better place in the Scout Area in Quezon City!

It is now a full blown coffee shop and restaurant!

The interior is very homey and bright. Really good for those casual night outs with friends, a family day or even a date!

I super love this girl on piano. These are actually books! You have to see for yourself and be amazed!

Very extensive Drink List they have here! From coffee to juices to shakes to teas!

And yes, they now serve liquor to cater to friends who are not coffee lovers.

Our drinks for the night. House blend Iced Tea for me. Slow Brew Coffee for hubby. Iced Latte for a friend.

Their food is worth the trip as well. They have a fusion of cuisines available and the chef is still continuing to discover more dishes to offer.

Their Happy Sisig will really make your tastebuds happy.

*Jumbo sized Happy Sisig due to our party that night.

Their Sinigang na Liempo has the right sourness and spiciness.

Grilled Porkchops and Inasal na Chicken are both marinated with that yummy tanginess of barbeque sauce!

And of course, a coffee shop isn’t a coffee shop without the sweet desserts.

They have a lot to offer and I can’t choose so I tried 3 of them. It’s all good!

But wait, here’s the best part. The whole cafe looks so nice that almost every corner’s IG friendly. Just look at our amateur shots ↓↓↓

My team’s so happy and we’ll definitely be back!

HAPPY Wings & Waffles

I am generally a happy person and I love seeing happy stuff. Now, there is a place where your tummy can be happy too! A few weeks ago, Happy Wings & Waffles opened its doors to the public. I have the opportunity to attend its soft opening and I certainly had a happy time!

I love how simple but catchy the logo is. Red definitely attracts clients.

The people who makes us filled with happiness!

I love this backdrop wall. This separates the main dining area and the private function area.

Balloons make the place festive.

A display of different flavored waffles and muffins for your choosing.

This is the statement wall just before the wash area.

Since it’s opening day and guests were invited for the blessing, we were treated with a 5 course set menu.

Hokkaido Pumpkin Soup with Fresh Diced Apple

Caesar Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Spaghetti Bolognese Pasta with Caramelized Onion Foccacia Bread

Rosemary Roasted Chicken and Cranberry Sauce with Buttered Broccoli and Cauliflower

Matcha Creme Brulee / Champagne Pannacotta / Italian Tiramisu

Of course, after a meal, a cup of coffee is definitely a must!

This is me enjoying my hot cup of Cafe Mocha!

There are so much more to try at Happy Wings and Waffles! Will post more photos as I try more food from their menu. But I will be sure to order the Rosemary Chicken with Cranberry wine sauce! Can’t wait!!!

Be it breakfast, lunch, snacks or dinner, Happy Wings and Waffle surely has something for you!

Promo: Starbucks 2017 Planner

It has been a tradition to most of us to collect Starbucks stickers to get that “Starbucks Planner”.   I particularly can’t get rid of this tradition even if I  am not that much of a coffee drinker.

Check Starbucks.ph to read on the full mechanics on how to get this planner.

Simply put though, to get the Starbucks Planner, one has to purchase 9 cups of Starbucks’ core beverages and 9 cups of Starbucks’ Holiday beverages.  Every purchase entitles you to a corresponding sticker.  When you complete the 18 stickers, then you can redeem a 2017 Starbucks Planner in any branch.

The promo will run from November 2, 2016 to January 8, 2017.

Here is my cup by cup journey in getting that planner.

I  am so grateful for friends who donated their stickers to me.  Technically, I only have to purchase 8 cups on my own.  

I can’t wait to get my 2017 Starbucks Planner!  Update soon!

Family: Family Dice Games 2016

Being Chinese New Year the biggest celebration in Chinese Calendar, this season known as the Mid Autumn Festival is next.  In Chinese Culture and Tradition, we celebrate the end of the “Ghost Month” to ward off bad vibes and unncessary spirits.  Aside from giving out different variants of mooncake, we also celebrate by playing dice games.

This Game is a game of chance that depends on the combination of your thrown dice.  Every combination corresponds to a level and prizes.  

Every year, around September or October, families and friends gather to celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival.  The day usually consists of a lunch or a dinner together, then a dice game afterwards.  

For our family, I usually take charge of what prizes to include in the game.  We just  set a budget per person then go from there. We deduct the budget for food and spend the rest for prizes.  This has already evolved, before, our prizes just consisted of hopias.

How to play?  It’s so easy.  There are a total of 6 dice.  You  throw it on a ceramic bowl and wait for the combination to appear. 

There are 6 levels of prizes: 

The Chong Guan is the highest of them all.  Minimum combination to get is 4 fours then it gets higher and higher. If you get 6 fours then you are a very lucky person as you could wipe all the prizes, but of course, too much of everything is bad.  So some break the bowl and just get the Grand Prize, then they continue the game for everyone to get the other prizes.

2nd Prize. Here you could either throw a combination of 3 each of 2 same numbers or a series of 1 2 3 4 5 6.

3rd Prize. The combination you need is 3 fours.  

4th Prize. You need to throw a combination of 4 same numbers (except four).

5th Prize. 2 of the easy ones to get. 2 fours.

6th Prize. The easiest of them all.  All you need is 1 four.

For a detailed post on how to play the dice game, read here.

So there! Go organize your own dice game now! It’s super easy to play and so fun!  For adults and kids alike!

Food Trip: Jollibee Adobo Flakes Yum Burger and Halo-Halo Sundae

A few hours after we came back to the Philippines, we find ourselves inside the leading fastfood chain in the country, Jollibee. 

Always on the lookout for new items to try, I ordered a Value Meal with Burger, Drinks and Sundae.  Ironically, this meal was just launched last May 31, 2016.  (The day I left the country for a vacation.)  And it’s in time for celebrating our country’s independence.

The Jollibee Limited Edition Pinoy Favorites consist of Adobo Flakes Yum Burger (Php59.00) and Halo Halo Sundae (Php35.00).

I’d rather that this is also in a Rice Variant because I think the concentration of the sauce is too salty for a burger.  It’s the same as your yummy YUM burger but the original dressing is removed to give way for the tender flakes with sauce that’s put on top of the burger.  Overall, it’s tasty and a nice mash up burger.  Worth to try.

image

Next is the Halo Halo Sundae.  Oh this one I love the most.  It has your regular milky Vanilla sundae topped with Halo Halo toppings.  A few pieces of red and green Nata de Cocos, strips of macapuno, bits of beans, cuts of bananas and a finish of Ube syrup make up for this sundae.

I always love my halo halo with a lot of milk so the milkiness of the sundae is complementing it right.

I think these 2 should be permanent in Jollibee’s menu.  Not only do we take pride for being Filipinos who excel in whatever field we pursue, we also take pride in having lots of delicious Filipino foods.

So what are you waiting for, while Jollibee hasn’t decided to make this permanent yet, go ahead and try these while it’s there!

I will never get tired of having Jollibee for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  It has become a staple in my life.

#Ang sarap, ang saya maging Pilipino!
