Randomly Today 02

Writing

this random blog post because I’m already at my weekend mood. Hello, Friday.

Listening

to Left Alone by blink-182.

Thinking

about law school. I’m claiming it. Claudine will go to law school on 2017!

Smelling

the smell of the coffee. This is always addictive.

Wishing

for this day to end soon. Hahaha I wanna go home and get back to watching series again!

Hoping

to make it to my appointment at Lay Bare tonight. It’s female time, folks.

Wearing

a white Korean-style mini dress, black leggings and black white-floral sneakers.

Loving

that I was able to submit the required reports on time and that it’s already Friday! Yay!

Wanting

to eat lunch. It’s already 11 and I didn’t eat breakfast so… Fastforward to 12 noon, please. I also want to get back to fitness.

Needing

enough motivation to continue my tasks. I shouldn’t be blogging right now, you know. And I need to find the perfect workout for me, or perhaps a gym. Whatever. I need to work my tummy out.

Feeling

sleepy. I slept at around past 2 AM because I was having a video call with someone… LOL. And then I woke up at 4:15 AM because I have to go to work. Yes, I know I should’ve slept earlier.

Study Session at Café Kivhan

Last Saturday, my review buddies and I went to Café Kivhan for a review session after lunch. The place was huge and they offer a variety of frappe and espresso you can choose from.

It’s a perfect place for group study sessions. Café Kivhan is both artsy and cozy, and the ambiance could really relax you.

Their drinks are also commendable, ranging from around Php 100 to Php 170. I ordered White Chocolate Frappe and it was good! I was also able to take a zip of their Caramel Frappe and Capuccino Espresso and they both deserve my thumbs up.

Café Kivhan is located along Padre Noval St., near the gate of University of Sto. Tomas. I would give the shop a 3.5 out of 5 as a rating for my first visit.

Café d’ Bica Invasion

My Main and I really have Wednesday lunch dates because it’s currently the best time for us to catch up despite our busy schedules. After lunch, we go to some chill-out places to have some ice cream or shakes before going back to our own businesses.

Today, though, we decided to try Café d’ Bica, a nearby coffee shop, because we wanted a new place to hangout and we both had stuff to do.

We both ordered milk tea – I settled with wintermelon while he wet with the chocolate one. Their milk tea tasted great, and it’s affordable too! It’s really budget friendly for students, and if only we hadn’t eaten our lunch yet before that, we would’ve tried their mouth-watering pancakes. The red-velvet pancake caught my eyes at first glance but I was already full so we settled with Cajun fries (a semi-spicy fries).

image

The space was kind of small, but their interior is cute and artsy. They have friendly staff, too. 🙂

Café d’ Bica is located at 3387 Mafee Bldg., Molino Road, Molino 3, Bacoor, Cavite, just across Emilus Mart. You may visit their Facebook page (Café d’ Bica) and Instagram (@cafedbicaph) for more information. I would give them 3.5 out of 5 for the overall rating. 😉

Cozy Nights at Café Lanzo

Last week, we visited Café Lanzo twice for some coffee sessions to chill. I’m such a coffee lover so trying new coffee shops is always a go-go for me.

Café Lanzo’s interior is very cozy and relaxing. It has New York feels around and it’s not the busy kind of coffee shop. You see, Starbucks and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf are among the busy coffee shops I know (IYKWIM). Café Lanzo’s ambiance is a different one. The shop also has a cool playlist with bossa nova and acoustic tracks. They also have playing cards and board games that the customers can borrow. 🙂

I’ve had Café Mocha (Php 130.00) and Doule Espresso Frappe (Php 160.00/165.00, can’t remember) for those two nights of visit, plus fries, nachos and a yummy burger-like taste but with a different kind of base bread (forgot what it’s called). Thumbs up for the drinks and food! They’re all affordable too! As someone who’s been a coffee shop hopper, food and drinks from Café Lanzo are pretty much cheaper compared to some other not-yet-known coffee shops I know. (I’ll take a clear picture of my orders next time.) They also have very welcoming staff who would really make you feel at ease. 🙂

Café Lanzo is located at Ground Floor, Lagman-Garcia Bldg., Molino Road, Molino 3, Bacoor, Cavite. You can check them on Facebook (Café Lanzo), Twitter (@CafeLanzo) and Instagram (@cafelanzo). On a scale of 1-5, perhaps I could give this shop a 3.7. Go and visit for your own verdict! 😉

Just saying, I’m so glad that there are already a number of coffee shops around Molino. There’s no more need to drive to Evia or Town or District to go to known coffee shops and wait for your seat to chill on a random night. 🙂
