Shake Shack Manila Review + Feelings on 2019 Elections

I’m one of the millions of Filipinos who exercised our right to vote yesterday. Like every other good citizen, I cast my vote, got my finger inked, and prayed for the best. I woke up this morning with hope, hope that at least a few of the opposition candidates would get a seat, but I only ended up heartbroken.

I was going to make a well composed post about why we should still fight a good fight as good citizens of this country, but I really felt down. So what did I do to try and cheer myself up?

I ATE MY FEELINGS.

I walked out of the office for my lunch break, and a few minutes later, my feet got me to Shake Shack.

Surprisingly, the queue wasn’t as long as it was last Friday. It took me about 15 minutes of lining up before i got to place my order, and another 25 minutes to get my food.

Learning about the wine basics at Wine Story’s Wine 101

Finally got to attend a Wine 101 Class by Wine Story! I’ve been meaning to go to one after rediscovering how wine is so good with different food- not just cheese and grapes (Thanks to eating a lot at Planet Grapes), so when I saw that they were having a class this month, I went and signed up for it.

It’s such a good thing that Wine Story offers these classes, as Filipinos aren’t really known to be wine drinkers. As if the presence of beer commercials and billboards aren’t a telltale sign, our country is a beer drinking nation. Wine Story seeks to change the perspective and conversation about wine, starting with proper wine education.

In this post I’ll be sharing about about the class I attended, as well as the other courses offered by the Wine Story Academy, Wine Story’s wine education arm.

The course is taught inside Wine Story at Shangri-La Plaza Mall. Our
instructor was Wine Story Academy’s Wine Education Manager, Carla P.
Santos.

Learn and Discover with SBC Perkspective

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, “A Fresh Start“? For me, it’s a beginning, turning over a new leaf, or discovering something new.

This is what #StartFreshatSBC is about. Seattle’s Best Coffee explores this concept, of starting fresh, just like how coffee jumpstarts your day.

SBC launches The SBC Perkspective, a
series of quarterly pocket events that will offer talks, workshops, and
informal meet-ups aimed at giving a fresh
perspective on how we create and view art, music, photography and other
creative processes. Through this series, SBC is recreated into a space
that not only offers great coffee and tasty food, but a go-to place for
the community to come together, to be inspired
and to conspire, and to come up with novel ideas and a new outlook on
things.
