Miao Cat Cafe is strategically located near Congressional Avenue corner Mindanao Avenue in Quezon City. Customers are entertained every two hours to avoid overcrowding the place and not to disturb the cats.

Entrance fee is Php300 and is consumable. You have a vast selection of drinks and snacks. During our visit, we ordered Caramel Latte, Cookies and Chocolate Latte, and Nachos.

Covers are provided for your food since cats will surely grab them. 🙂

You can freely take pictures and play with the cats.

This is Kahel. Kahel is the Tagalog word for the color orange.

This is Latte. Very cute!

The interior design of the cafe gives a really homey ambiance. Perfect for keeping the cats in the mood for sleeping.

They also have cat-themed merchandise for sale.

Celebrate TGIF at Borough

20170811_235622-01

Metro Manila traffic can be worse during Fridays. Some of us prefer to let the traffic subside before heading home by eating dinner outside and/or having a few drinks with friends.

Located at the heart of Ortigas Business District, I highly recommend Borough as the place to celebrate TGIF because it has a lot of food to offer, NYC-ish comfort food to be specific. The music and ambiance of the place is nice, too. I really love their homey interior.

5 Museums in Baguio City, Philippines That Are Worth the Visit

Baguio City in the Cordillera region in the northern Philippines is dubbed as the “Summer Capital of the Philippines” that is why people flock here throughout the year especially during summer to escape the heat in their places of origin. Aside from the cold weather, amazing views, and good food, Baguio City also presents a unique cultural heritage that is distinct from the rest of the country. We are very lucky that several museums are built around the city to showcase the art, history, and culture of the region.  Below are five of the several museums that are really worth the visit:

  1. BenCab Museum

BenCab, or Benjamin Cabrera, is a National Artist for Visual Arts, is the owner of this majestic museum. It houses several of his contemporary art collections and own works. You will also see many bul-ul (a carved wooden figure used to guard the rice crops by the Ifugaos) installations here. “Sabel” a common theme in BanCab’s works, is actually inspired by a real-life scavenger. A coffee shop is located at the ground floor of the museum which he also named “Sabel”. An eco-trail outside Sabel Café where traditional Cordillera houses can be seen can also be explored for a separate fee, just ask the café staff to avail. Nature and art combined indeed. Entrance fee is Php100 (Php80 for students and senior citizens).
