There are two things I love about this Christmas: 1. Christmas lights! and 2. Special coffee drinks and food

Have you guys gone yet to Ayala Triangle, Makati? If you haven’t, then you should definitely go already to catch the Symphony of Parols (?) there! What is it? Well it’s a beautiful Christmas lights show! I feel the Christmas spirit is really alive watching the Christmas lights brighten up the park on a cold night. The first time I saw it, I was truly amazed already! And you know what else I thought? If I had a boyfriend right now, I’d definitely want us to go to Ayala Triangle and watch the Symphony of Parols because it is soooo romantic! Don’t get me wrong though. This is also a great show to watch with your family and friends.

The show happens every night – when the weather is good that is – from 6:30pm until 8pm and it’s a 30 minute show. It’s only until December 23 so you better make a bee line for it already!

Here’s another thing I love about Christmas this year: Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has come up with their own special drinks to celebrate the Christmas season: Apple Caramel drinks. I tried it with my friend when we met at CBTL. I had the tea latte while my friend had the Ice Blended. It’s surprisingly delicious!

Oh and we also tried CBTL’s White Chocolate Raspberry cake. We saw the guy next to us eating this cake and we thought of how much we would love to sink our teeth into it as well! So we split the bill and ordered the cake. Sorry that all you are seeing is an almost finished cake. We were so into it that we forgot to take a picture before we helped ourselves.
