“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it is lethal. ~ Paulo Coelho
This has been a very long exciting day (compared to my routine “normal” days.) It was divided into a lot of mini trips on the side in a bright sunny day at the back of a pick-up (work-related), watching the ongoing APEC summit (during lunch break and after-office hours) + one good deed (my first favorite part of the day). Then it was all topped off by dinner with friends (which i considered as a kind of reward for myself and my second favorite). No wonder i feel exhausted but sleepless at midnight, excitement is taking time to wear off. And my nerves aren’t what they used to be.
I’m a huge fan of all easy, laid back and romantic cafes where you can just put up your feet, let down your hair, spend the after-office hours either alone reading a book and reflecting on your day or with friends chatting while sipping coffee or eating cakes and ice cream or munching pizza.
Speaking of pizza, there’s some good flavors and taste Puerto Princesa can offer for pizza lovers in settings where you can just let your stress and worries fade away, even for a while.
I always passed it but i’ve no idea how cozy the place was until yesterday, while dropping by to picked my officemate J waiting to buy pizza for work. She ordered cheesecake while waiting and offered Ate K and me a bite, which for my unseasoned tastebud, taste more than excellent.😁 The occupants of the next table was just getting ready to leave, and i wanted to take a snap of the attractive mess in their table as soon as they’re out of the door. I zoomed in on the green bottle containing water and the base with pink and yellow flower when something caught our attention: Iphone S6 just lying quietly and blending with the black and white tablecloth.
We rushed to the door and caught them just as they’re trying to flag down a tricycle and told them they forgot their phone on the table and got a triple thank you👼. 🙂 I hope they’ll never it again. Losing a phone is such a huge pain in the #$&@.😂
McCoy’s is located beside the national highway, Barangay San Miguel, right at the heart of the city, but once you get inside, the noise was drowned by the warmth of the place. Though the place is small, the seats is so inviting you might just want to lay down and hugs the pillow on the corner.
A variety of heavenly cakes are displayed on the glass case for Php90 per each thick delictable slices.
In keeping up with the laid back vibe of the place, the hand painted menu was hanged at the side of the counter while sauces, condiments and coffee cups were also on the nook under it.
We had Pitsang Sosyal at Php320 (18″)
Beefy and Mushroom at Php352
and Beefy Beef Php363
Beef and Mushroom has really lots of cheese and became my instant favorite, ( but i had maybe 3 slices of each, just to be fair. ) 😂😁:mrgreen:😆:)😅;)
Busy days are good. Just don’t forget to take a breather after each one.
I hope you are having a good week. I’m off early to take my own advice above and maybe some cake too… hehe
Love, your Island Girl
