discoveries after the wedding bells

Welcoming 2010

After all the merry making last night (to be relayed in another post), i woke up in a good mood.

This morning, i finally got to use the coffee press i received from Santa

We decided to try the new discovery hubby made during his recent trip to Singapore.

Davidoff cafe boasts of a perfect composition of outstanding taste and incomparable aroma

Their Grande Cuvee combines different vintages to generate the perfect blend of coffee.

How to make a delicious cup of pressed coffee:


And if that wasn’t a good enough start, we decided to have dinner at Spiral to treat our cousins who are from out of town.

I was determined not to pig out on the first day of the year and had halfheartedly decided to go a la carte but of course when i saw Spiral’s buffet line up, i was doomed.

Oh well, i have 364 days left to succeed…for now, i guess that diet would have to wait until tomorrow

Happy New Year everyone! This year will definitely be a good one!

    • hi anne, sorry for the confusion. we got the Davidoff coffee from Singapore but got the coffee press from ever reliable SM Megamall! hahaha! i was actually thinking of asking for the starbucks press but when i saw this in SM’s basement shelves near the mugs, i thought they looked much better. The press is made in Japan (luckily the instructions are in understandable English hehehe!). I also saw a couple of coffee press in Rustans but they’re a lot like the ones in starbucks without the logo that is.

  10. It is surely really hard to resist the buffet spread in Spiral, that’s why when it closed a year ago, I got somewhat frustrated. So it was really great news to know that Sofitel Manila is re-opening Spiral this November! They also have an ongoing photo contest for Spiral on their Facebook account, here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/SofitelManila/app_372342376178592.
