Gold Bean Coffee: A newly opened gem in Lahug

Salinas Dr, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines
A few weeks ago i saw a lot of instagram posts about a newly opened cafe in Lahug called Gold Bean Coffee


I was fascinated by the photos of the interior designs of this cafe. It reminded me a lot of Coffee Factory's industrial kind of concept. After knowing the accessible location of the cafe in Lahug, i immediately made my plans to go there and celebrate our anniversary with my boyfriend. <3


Gold Bean Coffee was opened July 18, 2016. The selections of their menu are variety of hot and cold drinks and a lot of flavors to choose. The area of this cafe is very spacious, wide and lots of seat.





They also sell fresh fruits. 

What i love the most of this cafe is that they have a lot of electrical outlets in every table and their chairs are very comfy to sit. Not to mention, their WiFi. The ambiance is great too! 



I recommend the Blueberry Cheesecake and Strawberry Cake, very tasty and affordable. The price of strawberry cake is 30 pesos.

Gold Bean Coffee is located at Salinas Drive, Lahug, Cebu City near USP. If you are coming from SM Cebu you can catch a jeepney 04L. Opens 10am to 10pm.
The only draw back with this cafe is the parking space. But other than that, you can never go wrong with Gold Bean Coffee.

Nichido Pressed Powder in Tan

Nichido Pressed Powder

Nichido Pressed Powder in Tan
Before i got this product i was watching Michelle Dy's youtube video (Favorite Affordable Drugstore / Local Products 2016) and recommended this product for oily skin.

I bought the Nichido Pressed Powder at Watsons SM Cebu. I should say that this product is very affordable and the packaging is quite sturdy and elegant. The finish of this product is matte and its very lightweight as you can see in my picture below.


I'm using San San Foundation top with Nichido Pressed Powder
After 2 to 3 hours the oil build up in my T-Zone area but i don't mind blotting it again with the powder because the consistency of this product is just lightweight.

As of the moment this is my favorite pressed powder. I definitely recommend this Nichido Pressed Powder if you are in a tight budget and looking for an affordable face product.

★★★★★
I give this product a dazzling 5 stars.

What I like on this product:
  • Matte Finish
  • Affordable
  • Didn't give me breakouts
  • Available in local stores nationwide

32 Umber Cafe & Co

Cebu City, 6000 Cebu, Philippines
As I've passed the street of Archbishop Reyes Lahug, I noticed a new cafe called 32 Umber. It looked intriguing to me about how the interior looked like in a glance.
32 Umber Cafe & Co
I gave this place a visit after my stressful busy schedule. I ordered a cafe macchiato and baked mac. The coffee is great and the baked mac is satisfying. Their food selections are also not the usual or common like you see in many cafes.
Hot and Iced Cafe Macchiato
Food Selections
The place is cozy and not that crowded unlike the other cafe's. Even though they don't have wifi connection you'll still be able to enjoy the place with jazzy music.
Interior Design on point.

Sirao Flower Garden: The Mini Amsterdam

Busay, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines
"There are always flowers for those who want to see them. - Henri Mattise"

Celosia Flower Farm known as Sirao Garden considered as "Little Amsterdam" went viral last year on facebook because of the eye catching red and yellow celosia flowers that made a hit on social medias. Celosia from the ancient Greek word "keleos", means burning.


Celosia Flower
I wasn't able to go last year because of how crowded it was due to its popularity as reported on social media. Finally, i had time to visit the burning flowers nice and bloomed and it's so beautiful, i felt like i was in Amsterdam since it was no longer crowded with visitors like it was last year. #char 


Selfie with the flowers

Using fish eye lens. ♡

I'm so happppppppy!

Sirao Farm has turned into tourist spot. Amazing!


Don't step on the box. 

Enjoying the view and the sunset ♡
This is quite an amazing experience! Beautiful mountain view, vibrant gorgeous flowers and chilly atmosphere.

If you wanted to pay a visit, the entrance fee is 25 pesos per person. This place is so lovely and its easy to take solo pictures but expect photo bombers depending on the angle. (>‿◠)✌


How get there: 

If you wanted to visit Sirao Garden you can take motorcycle near in Lahug Market or JY Square Mall, the fare depends of the driver.

Review: San San Foundation in Warm Almond

I was browsing on the internet and searching for a foundation that is good for oily skin. I tried a lot of products but still not satisfied. While browsing, I found San San foundation which is a matte finish. Without hesitation, I tried this product because it was cheap and had good reviews. 

Warm Almond

San San Matte Finish Liquid Foundation

I chose the shade Warm Almond the darker shade because I am morena.

What I like of this foundation is the spatula applicator which made it easy to apply. San San foundation has thick consistency and should only be applied less to the face so it won't cake.

Warm Almond

Spatula Applicator
I was impressed because of the natural finish and looked flawless to me. It covers the minor redness into my face. The lasting power of this foundation is 5 to 6 hours. Sometimes I don’t mind blotting my face because I like the dewy finish depending on my liking. Despite being just a local brand, its a great product!


What I like on this product:

  • Matte Finish
  • Affordable
  • Blendable
  • Didn't give me breakouts

If you're looking for a budget friendly matte foundation try San San Foundation because it's locally available in the Philippines and cheap also. So far this is the best foundation I tried.

★★★★★
I give this product a dazzling 5 stars.

The Coffee Factory - Nice interior design

Banilad, Mandaue City, Cebu, Philippines
When it comes to interior design Coffee Factory is by far, the best cafe I've been to. Along with their cozy ambience, they also have good music, and tons of books!

Cafe Macchiato

Caffè Macchiato
They have different selections of coffee, smoothie, frappe and tea and my favorite is Caffè  Latte and Caffè Macchiato. Their beans are imported from Colombia, Africa, Ethiopia and Brazil, not just an ordinary coffee.


Book Shelf
Coffee Factory also has very accommodating staff. What makes this café standout from the other cafe's in Cebu is the wide variety of cozy spots in the café. You have the outdoors, the bookshelf, a private enclosed spot, and an area that can accommodate a group!

Outside Ambience and Tables

Me.
This is my go to place since its very accessible to ride a jeepney going to Lilo-an and also great for studying and chilling. On weekends, it's always crowded with students I think because of their fast free wifi.

I am definitely going back here and its located A.S Fortuna St. Banilad, Mandaue, Cebu.
