Getting a free CBTL cookie is da bomb

One of the #PerksOfaBella that I thoroughly enjoy are the freebies that I get from The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.

I am not a coffee drinker, but I am very fond of going to CBTL because of the relaxed ambiance, cozy chairs, great (albeit a little bit pricey?) food, and wifi. Even though there are other coffee shops that are nearby, I tend to gravitate towards CBTL.

I usually just get their Hot Vanilla or Hot Chocolate, and sometimes I also try their cheesecakes and muffins. I’ve always wanted to try their cookies because they look delicious, but they are pretty expensive for me (Php 55).

That is why I immediately presented my BDJ coupon to my officemate when she asked me to join her for lunch at CBTL. The coupon that I used was the “Buy any pasta or sandwich, and get a free cookie of your choice”.

My officemate got the Roast Chicken and Mushroom Fusilli, while I ate the ginormous free Oatmeal Raisin cookie. It was delicious, by the way. In retrospect,  I think that for the size and the deliciousness, the Php 55 price is worth it. 🙂

Enchanted Farm Cafe & Human Heart Nature

One weekend, Funshine asked me out on a date. “Let’s go to Enchanted Farm Cafe!”

And we endured the hour-long commute from Manila to QC. It’s quite far but it is totally worth it.

Our first stop was the Human Heart Nature store (the cafe sits right on top of it).

I was gushing because there were sooo many products that I didn’t know what to pick..What did the bear buy?

Behold, my mini haul!
