Café Amidala: Sudden Trip with the Dorks

August 1, 2016

After our work shift last Friday, we had a scrumptious lunch at Yatskie near Capitol, special thanks to our TL for treating us. It’s my first time eating on Yakski and their barbecue was really good. So much for that, I wrote this post for a certain reason and that is to feature the very first Star Wars themed café in the Philippines and yes, it is in Cebu—Amidala Café!

Been itching to visit but I don’t know where and how to get there. After our lunch Hydie suggested to go to Amidala, we thought it wasn’t a serious invite but then we already found ourselves walking in circles and asking strangers how to get there and viola!

Enter we must to Amidala.

I was a bit surprise to see the place small but hey, the small space was maximize properly. The force of coffee and sugar is strong inside. I was humming  the Imperial March (Darth Vader’s Theme) as we enter to Amidala. We were welcomed by Stormtrooper and Darth Vader helmets and wall decals

The free space we could drink was at Master Yoda’s meditation space. Remember we were fresh from a 2:00 am shift, it was so cozy there I could sleep. Haha.

We ordered Wookies Milkshake and Force Choke Milkshake, it was expensive but every penny is worth it. Time to have a photoshoot of this babies.

Growing up seeing the Star Wars movies (thanks to Dad) makes me so happy to see this kind of themed café, I bet my Dad would love to visit this too. I have to bring him here then if he visits. I wish then that the place will be bigger  when the time comes.

Yes, cheers to more Café adventures.

SHORT TRIP TO TANGKAAN

May 25, 2016

It was a fine Palm Sunday near noon when we arrived in Tangkaan, Padre Burgos, Southern Leyte. We were nine travelling from our hometown Ormoc City by car and two pairs of lovers riding-in-tandems by motorcycles.

We came from a long hike back and forth to Hanginan in Maasin City when we drove all the way down south to Padre Burgos.

Travel from Maasin City to Padre Burgos takes about more or less 45 minutes.

It’s my second time to visit Tangkaan Beach but the awesome view never fails to entice me.

Crowded beach because it is Sunday!

The entrance fee is only P 5.00 per person. No fancy accommodation just cemented tables and chairs all over the shore. The price for the cemented tables ranges from P 100.00 to 500.00. We rented a 100.00 peso worth table. Continue Reading…

Who’s the king here? It’s the King of Android, Huawei Nexus 6P. I have a confession to make, I’ve been dependent to my android phone ever since I got one. In this fast-paced world, we want almost everything we need in the palm of our hands! Friends, stranger, countrymen, worry no more!

Here’s the King of Android, Huawei Nexus 6P and my top five favorite features of this King!

  1. The best of Google™, in the palm of your hand.

Enjoy the best Google apps pre-installed, so it`s ready to use right out of the box. That’s Search, Google Maps™, Chrome™, Google Play™, YouTube™, Photos, Gmail™,  and more. Nexus 6P’s wifi combo antenna offers a fast, strong connection,  so you can work and play, with no interruptions.

All of these pre-installed apps are my best of friends and I bet I am not the only one. I’m sure with Nexus 6P everything will be as easy as typing keywords to Google search. Continue Reading…

Art will always be for everyone and for someone like me who really appreciates different art forms, going to a local art exhibit is my way of showing my love even if I’m not really good at it.

I went to Sabin Resort Hotel yesterday to visit Colorburst, an art exhibition organized by Azul Art Link showcasing homegrown artist namely, Jayson Frame Ariño, Rocelo Montesclaros, Benjun Pore and Hareol Tero.  It formally opened last Friday, April 8, 2016.

I decided to see this exhibit not only because I love art but I really want to support local artist. In my own observation, the art scene in Ormoc has been inactive, err, not really, but I guess, lack of exposure. I dragged a clueless friend with me. When I first walked into the exhibit (of course, I took a photo) I was greeted by a handful of vibrant paintings. What took my interest is every artist has masterpieces with connection to pineapple.
