Wagging tails. Furry paws. Gentle eyes. Ready to go giddy all over? Pets are my absolute weakness, perhaps next to ice cream. When my best friends from Cebu came over to visit, I gave them quite a tour. As we traveled back to the city after a day trip in Tagaytay, we decided to rest and relax at this pet cafe we spotted in Cubao: Bengal Brew + Wolf and Bear Cafe.
If you need someplace touristy that's only a few minutes from the airport and showcases great food and awesome dining, BGC is the place to be. It was therefore a no-brainer when I brought my kindergarten best friends from Cebu to Bonifacio High Street's newest ice cream place, Freezer Burn.
The term "freezer burn" may not sound palatable by the dictionary's terms but chefs Miko Aspiras and Kristine Lotilla turned things around by marrying artisan ice cream with hot snacks. But more than taste, their desserts pack quite the graphic punch. If I may say, they fit the definition of what we nowadays call Instagram-able.
So today, I decided to spit out some word vomit. Don't worry I'm not going down the Cady Heron/Regina George highway. Think about this as a more personal and casual post. A friend talking to a friend. Something a little more easygoing and unfiltered unlike my fictional, poetic and well-curated posts. This is more of me and my thoughts spilling. Just spilling.
Its gentle pitter-patter against my bedroom window brings me back to how I used to sneak out of our house just to spend a night with you at the park. You’d be in your usual graphic tee with that snapback worn backwards and a smile across your lips. You’d bring a bag of fries and we’d talk endlessly about random things until the sky shows faint cracks of light and we’d hurriedly head back hoping nobody noticed our little crime.
