Brunch at Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe

Sabtu, 09 Januari 2016

         After so many failed attempts to try Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe we finally got a chance to try it out. After a quick shopping spree at F.A.S.H Boutique and Common Room, we giddily went to Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe to try it out. 

         My gosh, they have a lot of food offerings in the Menu. We tried out the soup of the day which was Mushroom Soup and it was delish. But I still can't get over the Mushroom Soup from Luljetta's Hanging Garden and SpaThe Bacon & Spinach Quiche was also good was not able to finish it though because we still had Paella Valenciana and Roast Pork coming.  The Paella was just OK while the Roast Pork is definitely a must try! The tender slices of oven-roasted pork served with gravy, mixed vegetables, mashed potatoes and rice was just devine, but then again don't just take my word for it. Go for that extra rice too! hehe :) For dessert we got the Dark Toblerone Walnut Torte and White Toblerone Walnut Torte it was so good too! ^_^

          The place is inviting and the vibe is cozy.  The servers were attentive and accommodating.  Kudos to that! ^_^

The Loreland Farm Resort Experience

Senin, 04 Januari 2016


          Loreland Farm resort was established in 1996 in Antipolo, Rizal. This 8 hectare resort has room accommodations and has several pools located  all over the resort. The resort also has function halls, sports and recreation facilities, team building facilities, restaurant, spa and chapel which would be very ideal for family get-together, corporate events and special functions.

          After a super relaxing Spa day from yesterday and waking up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated we headed to Verde, Loreland Farm Resort's Restaurant.  We got the complementary breakfast from staying overnight at Loreland. They offered Traditional Filipino Breakfast, Continental Breakfast and Breakfast delight which consist of Toast and Pancakes. We got Pork Tocino which was just OK. It could've been much better if they had freshly brewed coffee for breakfast instead of instant coffee.

          I liked our room which has the basic necessity for me such as clean bathroom, nice and spacious bed. Our room also had Cable TV and mini fridge and a nice view from the Veranda. The cellphone signal for both Smart and Globe is really hard to get while inside the room. I love how the place is surrounded by lush greens and some flowers. Its exhilarating to be roaming around the place and breathing fresh air while looking for the best spot to swim. I particularly liked the one that has a Ship designed pool. There were other pools but some are not yet open, maybe because there weren't a lot of guest that time, I'm pretty sure during peak season all pools would be accessible.

Chillaxin at Luljetta's Hanging Gardens and Spa

Jumat, 01 Januari 2016

The hustle and bustle of the city life can be tiring, not to mention the traffic going to and from work via EDSA is downright hideous. I found my perfect city escape which is just a few hours drive from where I live. Luljetta's Hanging Garden and Spa is so perfect if you just want to be quiet and reflect on your life's purpose, meaning or what not, or just simply relax. Set in a mountain resort in Antipolo City, Rizal Province, Luljetta’s has a breathtaking view of the  Laguna De Bay and Manila skyline. As they say, It is a spa destination like no other.
 
Check out their website for the perfect spa package to suit your needs and budget.
We opted for the: BED + BREAKFAST + BODY MASSAGE + DAY TOUR ACCESS IN LULJETTA'S WITH MEALS FOR 2 PAX PACKAGE

This package includes

  • An overnight stay at a Standard King Room at Loreland and full access to Loreland Farm Resort swimming pools and breakfast at Verde Restaurant
  •  Comfort Package for 2 at Luljetta's Hanging Gardens and Spa for 7 hours
