#FoodPH - 4 Major Reasons Why I Will Visit Cuddle Cup Cafe AGAIN!

Coffee is a HUG in a MUG!

Found an awesome place to dine and hang out near De La Salle University - DasmariƱas in Cavite. Cuddle Cup Cafe is located at  Block 1 Lot 2 Santa Fe Area I, DasmariƱas, Cavite. This cafe commits itself to offer everyone drinks that will warm everyone's hearts and feel their hugs with every cup.


I am sharing you four (4) major reasons why I will re-visit Cuddle Cup Cafe

1. Cozy and Homy Ambiance.






Cuddle Cup Cafe offers a cozy and homy ambiance with the use of woods, comfy couches adorned with pillows and stuffed toys. Teddy bears, dog stuffed toys and pillows make the cafe more vibrant and gave everyone a relaxed vibe. I come from an all nighter and seeing those huggables made me want to just lay down there and sleep or at least take a nap.


2. Intimate Venue to Reconnect.



The place is not that big and actually can only accommodate up to 35 pax at the maximum. Having said that, it's a perfect venue for intimate gatherings may it be a quick chit chat with a long-time-no-see friend, reviewing for an exam, reading a book you really want to finish or even a small reunion with relatives. Cuddle Cup Cafe accepts reservation for any events you have in mind. Mr. and Mrs. Go would be more than willing to assist and brainstorm with you.



3. Awesome Collection of Second Wave Coffee Drinks.


Salted Caramel Latter

Oreo Milkshake

Hazelnut Latte

Smore's Drink

Cuddle Cup Cafe offers second wave coffee and it's really that good type of coffee as for me. From best sellers Hazelnut Latte to Salted Caramel, from Christmas drinks Hot Chocolate Milk to Strawberry Shortcake, you will surely crave one cup after the other.

Spiced Chai Latte

Hot Choco Mint

Strawberry Shortcake

You may also try other specialty drinks like Smore's drink, Double Chocolate Matcha,

4. Offers Good Food with Great Value.

It's not just with their specialty drinks that this cafe offers which made me convinced that I will definitely coming back. They also served good food. Nachos, Smore's Dip and Pork Steak Rice is really good but my favorite of them all is their Tuna Pesto Pasta. I am not a fan of pesto dishes as you all know but this one is an exception.

Special thanks to Ron and his team for accommodating us. Thank you to Mr. Ariel and Mrs. Lovela Go for sharing your stories with us. I am happy to be part of your journey and letting me experience Cuddle Cup Cafe made me so excited on what's next with your plans on the coming years.

#RunPH - Mcdonald's Stripes Run 2016 Experience!

It was drizzling last November 26, 2016 but that doesn't stop people to continue their support to Mcdonald's Stripes Run 2016. Proceeds from the run will go to Ronald McDonald Read to Learn program which is a reading program for grade 1&2 students in public schools.

Running under the rain! Awesome!


With every step into the race, the runners helped thousands of Filipino children learn how to read. Proceeds from Stripes Run amounting to Php2 million were was donated to one of Ronald McDonald House Charities’ flagship programs, Ronald McDonald Read To Learn. Since 2002, Read To Learn has helped close to 12 million Grades 1 and 2 public school students all over the country to improve their literacy skills.

Sharing you some photos from the run!

#TheaterPH - Mula Sa Buwan

Black Box Productions proudly presents its first theater production “MULA SA BUWAN ”  --- a new Filipino musical about love, ideals, and the heartbreaks in between.



Based on French poet Edmond Rostand’s play Cyrano de Bergerac, “ Mula Sa Buwan ” is now set in 1940s Manila, among young ROTC cadets and blushing colegialas. The play shows the innocence and beauty of our nation where music, harana, kundiman, wit, passion, and hope abound! However, when World War II strikes, virtue, honor, and love are all tested – the young now forced to suddenly grow up as men. The story moves to a time after the war, to a field of ruble, of forgotten memories, of heroes lost in a country struggling to survive. At the center of it all, the tragic love story between Cyrano, Roxane and Christian.

Boo Gabunada as Cyrano

KL Dizon as Roxane

Fred Lo as Christian


“ Mula sa Buwan” is a brainchild of two prolific artists namely Pat Valera who conceptualized, wrote the book / lyrics and directed the production together with William Elvin Manzano who co-wrote the original lyrics and composed the original music. And it was in 2010 at the University of Asia and the Pacific under Dulaang Rock Opera Company, when they first produced “ Mula sa Buwan” transforming the timeless piece into a Filipino musical. The run captivated the hearts of the public and was well-received by the critics.

Since then, the duo has patiently reworked the material to make it more moving and relevant.  And come December 2016, a full, grand, and elaborate production will grace the stage – once more bringing laughter, tears and remembrance to a much broader market. 

MULA SA BUWAN is set to open on December 2 and will run until Dec. 4 at the Irwin Lee Theater located at the Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights, QC. Performance schedules are as follows: Dec. 2 – 8 pm; Dec. 3 – 3 pm; Dec. 4 - 3 pm and 8 pm.
