Wang Mai Cafe, Bangkok

During our stay in Thailand, I realized that we rarely sat down to have a quiet breakfast. One of those rare moments was when we were looking for a place to have coffee before we proceeded to The Jim Thompson House. While walking along National Stadium area, we found this cute little coffee shop: Wang Mai Cafe

Located within the National Stadium compound, Wang Mai Cafe is quite straightforward: they only offer coffee and tea drinks -- hot, iced or frappe. 

It is a place where people can sit quietly and drink coffee, or just do some people-watching, the kind of peace I want whenever I drink coffee, not the buzzing sound of people talking loudly while tapping on their laptops. 

I had an Iced Latte for 50 Baht (Php 68) while my friend ordered Thai Tea Frappe for 50 Baht (Php 68).

I'm not really a tea person, but I will take Thai tea anytime. :)

But of course, I'm still too biased with my coffee. :p

Luckily, Wang Mai also sells Spring Rolls (3 pcs for 20 Baht or Php 27) that morning, so we grabbed those too. 

Though not freshly-cooked, the Spring Rolls were still delicious and bit crispy. 

The staff was genuinely friendly, especially the lady who had to ask us which country we came from because she said we look Thai. I like the simplicity and the homey ambiance of this place, I do hope I could stumble another coffee shop like this soon. :)

Mango Bravo by Conti's

Mother dear celebrated her birthday last month, and as I always do, I bought her a birthday cake. Last year, I got her Grandma's Chocolate Cake from Purple Oven, this time it's Mango Bravo by Conti's.
One of Conti's bestselling cakes, Mango Bravo is available in two sizes: Mini (Php 665) and Regular (Php 1195).
Thinking about the amount of food that will be stored over the weekend, I bought the Mini. 

Mango Bravo is a wafer-based cake with cream, topped with slices of ripe mangoes, with choco syrup and cashew nuts. Oh, this cake needs to be frozen, btw (super thanks to my friend Mike for taking me and my cake home safely. hehe.)

Chocolat: Deep Dark Chocolate Cakes

I've always been curious about Chocolat eversince a friend told me it's really good. PLUS it was included in's Top Ten Chocolate Cakes in Manila so I suggested that my friends and I meet up at this hidden cake store in Katipunan area.

Chocolat offers signature chocolate cakes and other specialty cakes. The place is a small shop that could only sit 10 persons. Customers usually drop by to buy cakes for takeaway.

Pimples No More with AcneCare #MayPagAsaPa

Acne is one of the most common skin problems among teenagers. Also, acne can affect adults. 
What causes acne? According to MayoClinic, the four main factors that cause acne are oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores and bacteria. Hormones, certain medications, diet and stress are also huge contributors that can trigger acne. 
Here are the basic prevention tips you can do to avoid acne:
1. Use less oil-based skin products. 
Using oil-based sunscreen, cosmetics, and other skin care products makes you more prone to acne.
2. Watch what touches your face.
Avoid resting your hands and other objects (like your phone screen) to your face. 
3. Don't prick your pimples
Just don't.
