Pups and Cups Dog Cafe

by Wednesday, September 12, 2018
 Pups and Cups Dog Cafe is probably the best pet cafe I've been to. The reason being was that all the dogs here were super calm, lovable, responsive, and chill. I've been to several dog cafes and there were always some unruly, misbehaving pup. Here, each of them were just awesome. Perfect for kids, or if you're a bit aloof to dogs, you can relax here and actually enjoy yourself. 
 Located at BF Las Piñas,  you can take a car or commute. It's easy to find. Their roomy cafe offers a lounge area where you can order food or just hang out. They have pastas, sandwiches, soups, desserts, etc. Entry Fee is Php190/person with 1 complimentary drink of your choice, and 1.5-hours playtime with doggies.
 Lounge area
 Inside the dog play area. Staff were very attentive, friendly, and kept the place sanitary.
 Leave your shoes/bags in the lockers. They provide slippers for all guests. Still best to wear or bring socks.
They were actually able to shove 3 Pomeranians together, along with the rest of the pack in one sitting. No one was cranky nor jumped. Everyone was calm and just nicely sat on the bench.

Cabbages and Condoms

by Saturday, September 08, 2018
Cabbages and Condoms is a restaurant featuring condoms in various forms and sizes. The establishment is an advocate for promoting safe sex, and found a brilliant way to showcase their message in forms of art and food. Hanging lamps were donned in condom-like appearance, while several mannequins/statues on display were covered in clothes made of condoms. They also have souvenirs shops related and unrelated to sex.
 Entryway
 Souvenir shops and displays
 Outdoor dining area. There were also indoor, air-conditioned dining halls.
 Large print reminding people of all genders and preferences to stay safe during sex.
 Complimentary appetizer
 Mango-Banana Shake, and Strawberry Shake
Satay Gung: THB220
 Marinated Shrimps Grilled on a Shrimp
Thung Thong: THB150
Deep-fried Chicken and Mushroom in Flour Bags 
 Khao Phad Gung: THB200
Shrimps, crab meat or beef fried rice
True to their cause, the restaurant gives each guest a complimentary condom.

Remarks:

  • The most important for me is that all the dishes we tried were amazing. Flavours were spot on. I bet you can blindly order anything and get a guaranteed tasty dish.
  • The concept is unique and of course, Cabbages and Condoms' vision and mission is worthwhile.

Residencia Boracay

by Sunday, April 22, 2018
Before Boracay shuts down for a 6-month healing and clean-up program, we were able to visit the island, just before proper summertime. This time, we opted to book a room at Station 1. This would be my first time in this part of the coastal strip, and it's definitely way better than Station 2 and 3. Less people, less boats or whatever water activity equipments nearby. The ocean seems bigger and not crowded. Good thing Residencia Boracay still had rooms available. Most beachfront resorts were full.
View from Residencia Boracay's beach beds.
Residencia Boracay is one of those fortunate resorts which has both beach access at one end, and roadside entry at the other. We took the services of Island Star Express, which was cheaper than Southwest Tours (like 1 grand less). They dropped us off the resort's gates. 
Front desk / concierge. You can also borrow beach towels here, and just return it after use.

Remarks:
  • Dishes were quite affordable, with huge serving size. 
  • Staff were nice and approachable. We requested for a few extra hangers, and they gave us about 6 more.
  • There were hotel staffs keeping an eye on house guests by the beach. Really helpful, especially because most guests just leave their bags and items on the beach beds while they frolic in the water.
  • Mineral Water Dispensers (hot and cold) were provided for hotel guests, stationed near the rooms, and by the restaurant.
