The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf hopes to give flavorfully this season in ways that warm our soul as much as the body. I'm lucky enough to be invited to their Holiday Launch and a fun watercolor session last November 7, 2015 at their shop in SM Lanang Premier.

This year, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is offering several ways to share the holiday spirit with this season's favorites. They will serve two special holiday flavors in two variations - iced drink and warm latte. The Winter Dream Tea is a drink that has come to be anticipated by coffee lovers. It has rooibos and black tea blended with sweet spices and hints of vanilla. The newest addition is the Toffee Nut which has a buttery caramelized sugar with a hint of nut, paired with the richness of espresso and a sprinkle of toffee bits.

CBTL will also be releasing the new edition of The Giving Journal. I am a real fan of notebooks, planners, and the like (even though I don't want to write something on it, I just want to collect. LOL!) The 2016 Giving Journal comes in four colors - Tiffany Blue, Mustard Yellow, Brown (Tan) and Violet. Collect 12 stamps by purchasing a regular or a large-sized drink to claim it. Promo period is from October 23, 2015 to January 10, 2016.


The 2016 Giving Journal not only inspires each individual to brew one's best year but also it gives back flavorfully to the community. It has partnered with the Real LIFE Foundation to support the educational needs of the less fortunate. So this is not you ordinary planner, because you are able to share your blessings to the 38 university scholars so that they can fulfill their dreams and help their families. 

We also had a fun watercolor session with Ms. April San Pedro during the launch. She taught us how to write letters using watercolor. It was not that easy yet it was really fun! Thanks Ms. April and Sir Joel Bagas from Fujifilm for the nice Instax shots.

End 2015 the right way by giving and changing lives through each cup served. Keep inspiring people too! Thanks for dropping by! Have a great day! :)

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf
Abreeza Ayala Mall and SM Lanang Premier Davao

It's time for another barkada food trip as Greenwich launches its new pizza flavor, the Cheesy Steak and Fries Overload. Greenwich invited us for the launching of their #NewestBarkadaCraze at Abreeza Ayala Mall and had a bite or two of their newest offerings. 

This new flavor will definitely be a sure hit for the whole barkada and you would want to try it over and over again. It satisfies your pizza cravings for that melt-in-your-mouth steak and oozing three types of cheeses made up of mozzarella, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese topped with crunchy potato strings.

Took some photos with the gang because we won the best barkada selife of the night. And once again, I won Best Instagram Photo and got gift certificates from Greenwich. Yay!

Team LGRP for the win!
Thank You Greenwich!

This will be available for a limited time only starting at P109. Hurry up now and visit any Greenwich branch near you. Thanks for dropping by!

La Bodeguita

Savor the rich flavor of Paella from La Bodeguita. Their paella is so rich I can’t get enough of it and took another plate.

Sea Green Cafe and Lifestyle Shop

Probably the best chocolate cheesecake I had in years. I highly recommend this for you to try out.

JR Pastry by Jonathan Ramirez

Too cute to eat but it tastes even better. I recommend these as gifts to your friends and family. I love the Espresso Meringue Kisses and Vanilla Bean Cream Puffs.

Stellina’s Lemonade

Very refreshing! I love it!

Sugar Cane Bar

Not too sweet and refreshing. It cleanses your palate.

Saging Repablik

I would recommend the Banana Walnut Torte and the Cheesy Yema Cake. Super yummy!!!

The Crazy Cook

Tinapa Tapenade is best with toasted bread.

Osvaldo’s Cake

I like their fruity and tangy Old Timer Black Forest Gateau.

Kai’s Chocolate

My favorite chocolates in Davao is here! Try their new Jack Daniels Chocolate with gold on top. Once you bite it, there’s a kick of alcohol in your mouth. I recommend their Chocolate with Matcha Green Tea. It’s yummy!

Cafe El Gato

If you like dips, try their chili oil and herb butter. I recommend their Chimichurri Sauce.

Casa Ensaimada

You will like their ensaimada’s and their ensaimada panini. Try their hot choco. Super rich and yummy.

Visit the atrium today and enjoy delectable food made in Davao. Happy Holidays everyone!
