One of my dreams is to have a coffee shop and a library in one. The perfect pair to pass the storm outside, a good book and brewed coffee. That is why I’ve been meaning to save the day to spend at the Coffee, Chocolate and Ice Cream Expo!

Last November 18, Wednesday, for an entrance fee of Php50 per head, I treat the family on a happy bonding time with coffee, chocolate and ice cream at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premiere.

Clyde enjoyed his cup of Carmen’s Best Salted Caramel. Dave had a taste too and he showed me his dimples as appreciation.

This three day event successfully celebrated the best, finest of chocolates, teas, coffees, and premium ice creams locally available and internationally known.

Booth Hopping:

Malagos Chocolate from Davao is a Bronze Winner for Academy of Chocolate 2015 Awards for their premium unsweetened  chocolate made from 100% all natural cocoa beans

Sir Adam is very friendly and apparently couldn’t resist the cuteness of our babies, Dave and Jamiel.

The Stevia plant tastes real sweet. I could munch this entire row of them! lol

Greenola is on Instagram! My favorite would be the Tropical Nut!

Divinve’s Decadent Banana Cakes and LigenHoney 

Free tastes that surely satisfied our sweet cravings and coffee fix are Carmen’s Best Dairy Products, Malagos Chocolate, BluCofee, Ice Cream Store, Adams Ice Cream, and Gloria Jean’s Coffees. Clyde and Dave eyed Miguelitos, and my mom loved the Gourmet Farms.

Some of the things we bag includes:

Dilmah Luxury Tea

I’ve been sipping a lychee infused tea as of the moment.

Gourmet Farms Sicilian Dressing made of broccoli and some pesto chips. Good combo! And its nice to know that they are in Cavite area, and yes, they offer a tour on their farm too!

Charlie’s Whole Fruit Smoothie – you can guess my favorite. I’m surprised too, that I prefered the Spirulina over Mango. I’m patting myself on the back for that healthier choice.

A bottle of wild raw pure honey from LigelHoney

Glorious Blend Chocolate tastes good too. :) I also got myself a pair of foot patches for detox.

These tubs are perfect for picnics and road trips. :D

We ended our Wednesday night in chocolate cloud, munching Greenola’s Tropical Nut to satisfy our midnight cravings! thank you Ma’am Lariza and Ma’am Eleine for free passes.



On December 12 and 13, type lovers and lettering enthusiasts will be in for a treat! The team behind Type Kita will be holding the 3rd installment of their annual typography exhibit! The previous Type Kita exhibits offered visitors with an incredible showcase of local typographic art pieces, on-the-spot workshops by some of the country’s well-known hand-letterers and calligraphers, and for the bargain hunters, a slew of handmade crafts and printed goods from local entrepreneurs.

The 3rd Type Kita exhibit promises to be even bigger than before, with over 60 participating exhibitors and artists sharing their talent for this event-for-a-cause.

Set during the holiday season, the Type KitaExhibit will serve as a big Christmas gathering for type enthusiasts around the metro! With live art, demos, art trade and gift giving activities, it’s the perfect holiday feast for type lovers!

With thetheme “Pass on the Passion,” the event aims to foster camaraderie and to strengthen the local type community during the Christmas season by focusing on the value of collaboration and sharing! With this event, type-enthusiasts can give back to the community and share their passion to others as well.Proceeds from the event will be for the benefit of PEARLS- a non-profit organization that aims to provide unprivileged kids with Peace, Education, Aspiration, Respect, Love& Smiles.

Activities for the event are as follows:


For this leg, exhibitors are encouraged to work and collaborate with other artists to share their talent and trade skills as they develop their pieces, strengthening the idea of sharing one’s passion through art.


Art Trade Manila will lead an art-exchange activity where artists and guests can bring their works or writing tools and trade it with fellow type-enthusiasts. It’s like a massive exchange gift activity but more fun!


Some of your favorite local letterers will also be invited to paint on wooden panels as part of the live art exhibit. Glass panels will also serve as a big doodle wall canvas!


And because the venue will be bigger, Zig Philippines will also be displaying large scale art murals as part of the exhibit.

Paincake Patrol (2)

Sharing the belief that a life worth living is defined by a purpose of your own manufacture and not by social consensus, one-man electronic music project Paincake Patrol launches his first-ever EP //Social Constructs on December 5, 2015 at Today x Future in Cubao, Quezon City.

Paincake Patrol (1)

Created in 2011 out of passion for music, Paincake Patrol is the recording project of musician Eeman Bulotano. This experimental solo project is focused on creating alternative electronic and ambient music, reflecting the artist’s experiences and views on existence in general.

“[I want to] make music people can listen to without [them] having to ignore the person standing next to them,” says Eeman whose goal is to provide music that “makes you think, but yet somehow not [distract you] at all.”

Emotions, Experiences and Expression

The idea behind //Social Constructs and Paincake Patrol itself is inspired and widely influenced by the very existence of ambient music as pioneered by Brian Leno during the 1980’s. Usually electronic and instrumental in nature, ambient music aims to create a perfect balance between disappearance and presence.

Though it has existed for a long time now, ambient music remains relatively unknown to the mainstream crowd as it is seen as “too smart” or “overly deep.” However, Eeman and many other ambient music artists see this type of music as simpler and more relatable compared to any other genre because it provides the chance to be freely interpreted by its listeners. This genre is powered by the experiences and emotions not just by the one who created the music but also by those whom the music is created for.

Songs from this genre evolve from the mere self-expression of one artist into many different stories weaved by those present in the audience. They are taken and understood in more ways than one – similar to how individuals give meaning to various things and, ultimately, to life.

Existence Defined and Redefined

Music relives one’s memories, and the entire Paincake Patrol project intends to elicit nostalgia while stimulating thought-provoking conversations. With this particular EP, the artist focused on his view of the general meaning of existence and how empty it may seem when viewed only in an objective and logical way.

Each composition is appropriately titled based heavily on how the artist views reality. Combining master beats with ethereal notes, //Social Constructs’ first three tracks aim to reflect the existential angst and loneliness one might experience when he or she has failed to see reason behind life.


(Ee)Man behind the Music

Fascinated with weird ambient and dreamy sounds, Eeman has been recording his own music and releasing it on Sound Cloud starting 2010. He has released three LPs from 2011 to 2014. Since then, he has been featured in a few publications, such as Indienationblog and Exposed Vocals. In the Philippine Indie Rock Awards 2015, he was awarded Keyboardist of the Year through his current band, Audio Drive Thru.

Hetook the next step early this year by doing live gigs all over the metro. Six short months and several introductions to numerous people later, he is now ready to share his music more widely to the world.

Check out Paincake Patrol on Facebook, Sound Cloud, Twitter, Instagram and his blog orcatch more of Eeman’s keyboards and synths as he plays with Audio Drive Thru.
