Weekend Story: Starbucks Tambays and Meralco S.O.S.

Last weekend was kind of fun and sad at the same time. Fun because the hubby and I got to stay at our marital home in Bacoor for the weekend and bond over simple activities. Sad because there was still no power in our house due to the fallen electric post in our street. There are only four houses affected (which means the rest of the village has power already!) and unfortunately, ours is one of them.

We also went to Starbucks twice (thus, the title of this post) because the hubby was studying for a school report. He said he wanted a quiet place to study and thought Starbucks was the perfect choice. When did Starbucks become a quiet place? And to think it’s a mall branch that we visited and people there were all over the place. Oh well, he’s crazy like that. Haha.

But you know, I actually enjoyed our stay at Starbucks because I was able to get my matcha fix again in the form of the Green Tea Frappuccino. Plus, I discovered their Cinnamon Danish which was huuuge! I liked that the bread was flaky and buttery, not too sweet and had just the right cinnamon flavor. I thought it was worth every peso at just P65.

And since we had no power at home, we took advantage of Starbucks free air-conditioning and electricity (to recharge our gadgets!) during our two visits. Haha.

As for our Meralco problem, the hubby (and our other neighbors) already reported it to the proper authorities. I just hope they act fast on it. We need our power back. Like so bad.

How was your weekend, friends? I hope yours was better than mine. 🙂

  1. Hope the power will back ASAP! I know the feeling without electricity for days.And yay to Starbucks! We used to hang out there and it’s a perfect place to spend your day or do things like studying,chikahan,etc. Unlike here,most Starbucks don’t have that kind of ambiance,so sosyal mga Starbucks natin diyan..LOL.. I love frapuccino too!

    1. Sana nga maayos na electricity problem namin. Hirap wala kuryente, diba sis. Yes, Starbucks here are really nice pati food and drink items are updated regularly to offer something new to customers. 🙂

  2. I can never concentrate in places like Starbucks! But you gotta do what works for yah! So sad to hear about your situation over there, I hope everything’s alright and power restored!

    1. Thanks sis, I’m hoping for the same. When in Starbucks, I tend to tinker with my phone naman or just people watch. 🙂

  3. hope you and your hubby are doing ok na. may power na? that’s what i usually do din when there’s no internet or power at home, go the nearest mall or coffee shop. hehehe!

    1. The last time I checked, we are still powerless. Guess we just have to be more patient. Good luck sa amin! Korek sis, going to the mall or coffee shop is one of the best solutions pag brownout. 🙂
