Caffe Pascucci

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

I love coffee shops. They're my favorite place to hangout in because the ambience in most coffee shops is relaxed. For a lot of people, they're great places for long conversations or to have meetings. For me, they're great places to just sit and read a book. Yeah, that's very cliché of me but it's true. On weekends when I have nothing to do, I would usually go to a near coffee shop, order my fave drink, sit at the quietest corner, and read. And I could do it for hours.

In comes Caffe Pascucci, which is fairly new establishment that I have discovered in Glorietta 2. Caffe Pascucci is an Italian chain of coffee shops with branches in a few countries including the USA, South Korea, Japan, and of course, the Philippines.
 Mokaccino - Php.135
 Hazelnut Truffle Muffin - Php.100

I loved everything that I ordered. I especially loved the muffin because the flavor was rich but not too sweet. The bread was soft and a little moist, and I liked that it has lots of chocolate chips on top. Also, I found the prices very reasonable. 

What I like about Caffe Pascucci is that it is not as crowded compared to other coffee shops, which means that I get the peace and quiet that I want for my me-time. There are tables outside for smokers and plush seats inside for those who are looking to relax. I also like that the interiors have this artsy feel. I think I have a new fave hangout now. Hihi. :)

Save the Date: Nike Women's Race

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Last year, it was a huge disappointment for me, and for a lot of runners, when Nike released the dates for the Nike We Run Series and Manila was not included. The Nike We Run is one of those highly anticipated events in the running community so it was a big letdown when we did not have one last year. Especially for me, being a huge fan of the brand. So imagine my utter joy and excitement when I learned that the Nike Women's Race Series is coming here to Manila for the very first time this 2015. 
According to the press release: "The Nike Women’s Race Series will be the world’s largest race series designed for women. The races motivate runners of all levels to push their limits by offering a variety of distances — ranging from 5k to half-marathon — on epic courses in 20 cities around the world including Toronto, London and Hong Kong.

In addition to uniting a global community of female runners, every race offers something different, including exciting new courses; runner services; and access to elite athletes, music, and local cultural connections. Amongst the details designed specifically for women, runners completing each race will earn a custom finisher necklace distinctive to their city."

Exciting isn't it? I, for one, will definitely be joining this event. So save the date, ladies, and keep posted for more details! :)
