Laboratoire Cafe Davao / A review

Laboratoire Cafe Davao / A review

My friends and I visited this new shop in town which is called Laboratoire Cafe. From the name itself, it is inspired by laboratory wares and laboratory feels. It makes me feel like I'm back to my laboratory again!

This is how the place looks like...




Even though the place is quite small, I still like the interior design. There is also a table of elements framed on the right side, which reminds of the days that I was struggling in memorizing it. Wooden was used for the interior which were painted white and brown. The colors are light and calm.

They also offer cakes, frappes and hot drinks.

Hot drink with syringe consists syrup


They even used test tube rack and tripod for the centerpiece.

Liquid nitrogen


The experience would not be completed without the liquid nitrogen! Thumbs up for this!

Will I return? Yes definitely!

The Sunday Currently | VOL 02

The Sunday Currently  | VOL 02

Hurray! I'm on my The Sunday Currently Volume 02! I am currently...

F E E L I N G  happy and tired because it was such a long day with my closest friends in high school. We met at the mall and ended up watching movie at her boarding house (take note: the landlady didn't knew that I visited). A moment later, a friend of ours texted and met us. We ended up strolling! Such perks if you have a friend with a car- free ride. Road trip to wherever, singing together while travelling and unlimited laughs.
L I S T E N I N G  to Bye Bye by Mariak Carey. The music while we were travelling were somewhat old songs which includes famous songs back in high school. Being with them while listening to this music makes me reminisce. 
W E A R I N G  my old orange shirt and checkered shorts.
A P P R E C I A T I N G  people who make time for me when I have nothing to give but my presence
C O N S I D E R I N G  to study for my upcoming exam. I was just considering though lol.
R E A L I Z I N G  that I'm still the same person as last Sunday (see The Sunday Currently Vol. 01). Most of the items I have written last time was still the same as of now, nothing much has changed. Is this a bad thing?
L O V I N G  my dog named Marco. He is a half Labrador/Pit bull. I'm loving him more each day!

Marco on his second month

It was a long day indeed! How about you guys? How is your The Sunday Currently?

The Sunday Currently | Vol 01

This is my first attempt in doing this "The Sunday Currently". Many bloggers (credit) are doing it so I was thinking why not give it a try? I am currently...

R E A D I N G  the miniaturist by Jessie Burton. Actually, I'm still on the first page.
L I S T E N I N G  to the strong breeze from my window. The wind is abnormally forceful today. Some of the papers I have on my table were flown away.
W R I T I N G this blog post.
W E A R I N G  blue stripped shirt and checkered shorts.
S M E L L I N G  the weird comforting smell of my room.
T H I N K I N G  about what to do next week, how to regain again my motivation in life and renewing my mindset to improve my spirituality.
L O V I N G  having lots of free time and the only thing that I am concerned with is what to do the next day.
F E E L I N G  relaxed and lost.
W A N T I N G  to go back to martial arts! I really miss it!
E A T I N G  Jollibee's beef steak.
C R A V I N G  popcorn with sour cream. Yum!
P R A Y I N G  to find my way back again, know what I really want and to find my purpose.
S C H E D U L I N G  my plan this coming Tuesday (Valentines day), which is to decontaminate the laboratory wares and spend time with my close friends in college. At least I'm not going to sleep the whole day!
A P P R E C I A T I N G  the fact that I have good and real friends that I could actually lean on. Friends that actually care for my being.
A S K I N G  why is this happening to me? Being unemployed and stuck at the moment.
B E L I E V I N G  one day it will all make sense
C O N S I D E R I N G applying for jobs that are not related to my course.
B E C O M I N G  the person I never thought I would be
L E A R N I N G  that going with the flow is okay but it more fulfilling to be bold about something and fighting for it.
R E A L I Z I N G that I have no control to everything and sometimes, it's much easier not to expect.
T R Y I N G  not to compare myself to others, especially to those who are "living" their dreams.
T A K I N G my time because I believe that we all have our own "pace".


I'm linking this post to Her. How about you? What is your "The Sunday Currently"?

Aesthete

Aesthete
Aesthete
Aesthete
noun
1.a person who has or professes to have refined sensitivity toward the beauties of art or nature.
2.a person who affects great love of art, music, poetry, etc., and indifference to practical matters.

These days, I'm into arts specifically calligraphy, brush pens and water color. It is somewhat my way of expressing the thoughts that I can't put into words. We all have that moment when you can't explain everything and there's no word/phrase to describe. I am thankful to the mankind for inventing such act. As you see, I'm doodling random things just to ease my mind.

First attempt in Calligraphy
I'm indulging myself with arts though my creations are far from perfection, it's my way of coping and self expression. I'm enjoying the days of learning things that are not related with my course. The world is vast and there's more to it. I just hate it when people expect us to do the things that we must do.

I guess my journey just begins here. I can't wait for more learning!

A Night at the Rooftop // a short story

A Night at the Rooftop // a short story


A Night at the Rooftop

The night was young and the sky is full of stars, I was at the restaurant located at the rooftop of a tall building. The place was lightly lit, not too bright nor too dim. I was at the corner where the view is prominent. There were indoor also plants next to me. The place was silent as there were only few people on it. I was sitting in a chair and enjoying the coffee as I taste every drop. It was a simple night though but it was so calm and so good. I looked at the around and felt that life is great. I got my phone and started checking the social media. I don't know what came out of my mind as I was typing your name. As I waited for my phone to load, my gaze turned to building’s rooftop next to where I am. There was also a coffee shop, just like this place where I am staying when a familiar face struck me. It was you. Of all the places in the world, why would you be at the rooftop of the building next to the building where I am at? Our gaze met and saw that you recognized me too. Out of gesture, I said "Hi", as if you can hear me, and smiled. It was years since I last met you, I didn’t dare to talk to you any further when our connection was cut. You still have that friendly face though. I sipped one more from my cup and went out. I didn’t know what to do; I mean I didn’t expect that I’ll feel this after years and being so distant with each other. You were miles and time away. Why does it feel as if the emotions I used to have just came back in a glimpse? I walk away from the spot where I saw you. Should I go to you or should I just forget what happened? I am really confused. I went downstairs and saw my mother and sister. We were at the department store and checking out their new clothes. I'm still bothered with the fact that i saw you. Suddenly, someone murmured at my back. I turned around and was surprised to see you. I suddenly felt cold and cannot move as if my body stiffened like an ice. I could feel how my eyes dilated, just like the days when I realized I fall in love with you. I told my mom and sister that I have to talk to you. We were again at the rooftop and sat at a spot where a light was through us. We were talking as if the years that have passed didn’t come into existence, as if we were just together all those long years. You showed me things about of your current job which was related to programming. I was in awe because I thought you pursued your passion in writing, you were always the artistic one. You told me about your experiences with the countries you’ve been through. I can’t believe this is happening, never thought that you’d come back to my life again after we got off. We stood up as I was about to go and you asked, “Are you free this Saturday?” I just nodded in agreement and knew that this is something.
