Alamid Cafe Xpress inside ROX: My photos suck, but their coffee is amazing

Alamid Cafe Xpress is located inside R.O.X. in Bonifacio High Street

There are a number of hobbies that can really hook you. For me, there’s the diving and then coffee. You all know about the former. So let’s talk about the latter. Pulling shots is addicting. I’m addicted. I blame the trance-like whirling sounds of the machine and the smell that fills the room when 16 bars of pressure is applied to a freshly ground batch of arabica. Then there’s the frothing of milk and the pouring that dapples the white with the browns of the coffee’s heart. And of course, there’s the taste. It’s a bitterness only an adult can enjoy embroidered with the image of a horse kicking your senses silly.

Pray for his soul



Earlier, I met up with Karlo for a business meeting in Bonifacio High Street. I wasn’t there when the explosion echoed, but from what my cousin tells me, it was blaring. They saw the body of the poor soul being moved out of the car. I had my camera yet I thought twice if I should take the shot. I took it.

Very sad. Very unfortunate and so close to Christmas. Let’s pray for his soul and for his family.

Not sure if I’d go for the shoes — too expensive, plus I already have two pairs of Nike+ running shoes (the ones that have a slot for a Built for iPod accelerometer). The shirt and windrunner trainers look fantastic though. Cool.

Crumpler High Street overflowing with Corona and Cheetos

It’s been almost a week since Crumpler Philippines announced the local chapter of Beer for Bags. Let’s check out some of the photos of beer stacked outside the Cumpler store.

I took these today, after coming from an appointment:




Wow, that’s a loadful of Cheetos! Sadly for those who still are planning on exchanging their beer for bags, most of the stock is gone. I wanted the Maurice messenger bag for my 13 inch MacBook — but that’s gone too.
