Super love the new ads of Starbucks!!! Following their motto on “Human Connection.” Nowadays due to technology, we tend to communicate with friends and family only through text or via email. When it is nice and still a way to stay in touch, there is still a different connection when you get together. There are some emotions you cannot see or feel through your phone no matter what emoji you put And Starbucks is always the best place to meet up and make that human connection
We already knew we were coming so we did not stuff ourselves . Yeah right! haha!!
It’s literally a hole in the wall! A very small place! We were lucky we got a table when we went. But in a few weeks they will be opening another branch in El Grande down the road. Please open in Makati!
Ble means blue in Greek

We went to BF Homes to try the Girl + The Bull. That is the only sign you will see, the one on the bottom

Here they are!! Gab Bustos ( The Bull ) and Thea de Rivera ( The Girl ) .
They are so young!! Only 23 years old. They arrived when we were almost finished eating. Apparently they had come from Makati where they are busy preparing for the opening of their second restaurant called 12/10. 12/10 is their anniversary It will be opening in less than a month so we are looking forward to it!

I stumbled into this instagram account and of course it caught my attention!! Love love berries!!! This is called Merry Berry and it comes in this which is 9X13. Cake base is vanilla butter filled with fresh fruits frosted with slightly sweetened whipped cream It comes also 12 inch round,
then 2 tier ( in photo ) and 3 tierI ordered to try it and they said their bestseller was the Strawberry Shortcake. Though I really wanted the merry berry because of the berries but they said the Strawberry Shortcake tasted better.
The description is – 9 inch round
