Heya Brewers! I just want y’all to know that I have moved to a new site – with my own domain, yay! Thank you, web genius Carlo Dimaandal (although, I’m still keeping this good ol’ site). It’s got a cooler look which I hope you guys would get to like even better! Just give a good click on this banner above and it’ll take you to my new site.
Do drop by and maybe give some feedback/comments/suggestions if you must!
These past few weeks have been awesome. I got this message from someone named Zuza via Facebook:
“Hello Bonzai, I just stumbled on your blog and I must say I love how much passion you have for writing! My name is Zuza and I’m from Seeties.me – a community of ASEAN bloggers, who love their cities and want to share their favourite city spots with the world. I thought you would be a perfect part of our community of bloggers from 6 countries…!”
Zuza, who happens to be the Communication Manager of Seeties.me was indeed very kind and accommodating enough that I didn’t have a hard time figuring out how things work around the said online community. Just to make the long story short, I earnestly joined and became a Seetizen Expert.
The province of Batangas has long been known for its exceptional strong brewed coffee known as the “Kapeng Barako”. That would make Batangueños more likely to be coffee drinkers than not, I presume. However, here in the city proper of Batangas, we’ve roughly got a few good ones which can really be considered as real coffee-brewing havens. Sort of ironic, don’t’ya think?
Anyhow, to my delight, I discovered a fresh sanctuary for caffeine-loving people which is located just around the community – a few blocks away from our ancestral (Lola Adelaida’s) home and a tread away from my work place – Jovita Café. Yay!
Despite this place being a newbie in the city (which recently opened last December 8, 2014), it’s pretty much hoarding its reputation at a high pace, and I bet it’s through their excellent service (always!), the good ambiance, good food and GREAT coffee at the best prices.
