Starbucks Tagaytay

After our bulalo dinner at Green ATS Bulalohan, we decided to get some caffeine first before heading home. We arrived at Starbucks Tagaytay by 12mn and lo and behold, it was like a lotto outlet. We had a hard time getting seats for we are six and getting two seats is already a challenge.. to think its already midnight! 


We were treated to a very delicious Lemon Square dessert, a gift from my dear friend Dax. I don't know the right term, but it's delicious, its so lemony without the feeling of being sour. It just tastes right. Yummm! My friends loved it and they even ordered 3 more boxes on our way back. 
1 box has 16 lemon squares and cost p220. 
My Tall Signature Hot Choco is perfect for the weather and the Lemon Square.

Green ATS Bulalohan in Tagaytay

Before Christmas, some friends and I decided to go to Tagaytay and just have dinner and chill out to destress! Angel and I brought them to Green ATS, this is our fave bulalo place in Tagaytay.

The view is overlooking Taal Lake, but at the moment we can't see because it's already an hour before midnight. The wind was crazy! It was sooo cold, hindi lang halata sa mga smiles namin. Haha!

Me Time Moments with Dove

I eat when I'm depressed and chocolate is one of my favorite comfort food. It is also the one common thing me and my family love to share. We recently tried Dove Chocolates. After a heavy and sumptous lunch prepared by mom because we are all present at home, it was timing that the Dove Chocolate package came. When i instantly knew it was chocolate, it was enough reason for us to continue enjoying dessert together. Mom got the DOVE® Chocolate with Crispy Rice, Dad got the DOVE® Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut, Almond & Raisin, Shobe got the DOVE® Dark Chocolate and I tried DOVE® Milk Chocolate. It's something new to our taste buds, we love Dove Chocolate's unique silky smooth because it is introduced by Mars

Mars takes great care and maintains the highest standard of quality in manufacturing DOVE Chocolate from the bean to bar, coupled with its special roasting and grinding – resulting in the signature silky smooth signature taste of  DOVE® Chocolate.
