For those who can’t live without their caffeine fix, the search is always on for a good cup of joe. Next-level coffee junkies, however, take their caffeine obsession to a different level. They visit coffee plantations, pick cherries, learn how to roast, and join coffee cupping activities. In fact, the taste of coffee in the places they visit are some of the most defining moments of their experiences.
Hong Kong is one of my favorite cities because there’s always something different each time I visit. Of course, each trip means a new set of dishes and restaurants to experience. And yet, for some reason, I’ve never had the chance to try Honolulu HK Cafe, the original and oldest tea restaurant in the city. Since it opened in 1940, it has charmed locals and tourists with its egg tarts and other pastries. I got to try it for the first time here in Manila.
If you’re looking for something to cool you down this summer, it’s time to give yourself that much-deserved sweet treat. If you live in the north, The Lost Bread recently found its newest home in SM Fairview!
The Lost Bread dessert concept prides itself for being the first to revolutionize milkshakes in the Philippines. The brand offers a wide selection of delectable-bordering-over-the-top desserts, from the country’s first ever smoking soft-serve ice cream cups, milkshakes, down to French toast cubes which come with different “syrup syringes” for added flavor.
One of the best nightlife spots in Asia is Singapore. The island nation is known for business but they also house five of the World’s 50 Best Bars and 15 of Asia’s Best Bars in 2018. I haven’t had the chance to try out their entertainment scene but I got to try out some of their drinks when the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) hosted an evening infused with the Singapore spirit.
A few days ago, I was invited to a gin-tasting session by the Singapore Tourism Board. During my evening at Run Rabbit Run, I looked back on my trips to Singapore, especially the food. I’m sure you’ve read or seen Crazy Rich Asians so you know how much the locals obsess over their cuisine. If you’re in Manila and you’re craving for some good Singaporean food, I recommend Nanyang.
Summer is here and I have had it. Officially. I’m not a big fan of the season so I’d find any excuse to stay in or go somewhere cool. Maybe I’ll catch a movie or eat out with friends, but my favorite is to pop into any Starbucks, order my favorite drink, and plop onto one of the couches and hang out with someone or read a good book. This year is going to be great because the new Starbucks summer drinks are out!
