Another Foray In the City - Shop, Eat, and Drink!

I have been a city dweller for almost half of my life, but in the recent months, I have been spending more time in the province, and I didn't realize - till now - how much that can change you. I am not complaining, life is good, but the city does have a lot of comforts and conveniences that one does miss after a while.

It's been a couple of days that I have been back, and I am enjoying it more than I thought. While I have never been one to get excited about shopping, it seems that going around in the malls is more enjoyable now.

With people getting married left and right, people celebrating birthdays practically every time I turn around - shopping is becoming a more frequent activity. The good thing is that I think that even if I have to scour the shops for gifts for bridesmaids, it is not a big deal anymore for me. Of course, if you have the option to shop online, that is always a more convenient way to go about things! (Before I know it, I might be posting about shopping for shoes...NOT!)

And if I had this to accompany my lunch everyday, I would definitely not complain!

It was a late lunch, and I knew it was five o'clock somewhere anyway. ;) 

One recent discovery is Draft Gastropub at The Fort. I had lunch there last time I went back to Manila, and finding out that they had vouchers for lunch on Ensogo definitely meant another visit. I paid PHP370 for the voucher and got two dishes for it. One of those deals you can't pass up on! With these two dishes, you can feed two people and still be more than full.

A leisurely afternoon requires coffee and something sweet to tickle the tastebuds. I stumbled upon this boutique cafe along Jupiter Avenue in Makati called Maitre Chocolate. Everything has chocolate in it, but as much as I love chocolate, I just am not sure about certain combinations. This dessert is something that won't fail to take care of any sweet craving, though.

To end the day, I tried out a beer that I had never heard of before. Does Delirium Tremens sound familiar?

It didn't ring a bell with me, but Wikipedia helped this time. Whatever you read/hear about it, just make sure you take it easy. It is darned good beer!
