espressamente illy

espressamente illy (expressly illy) is a chain of Italian-style bars that serves coffee, among other things.

I decided to try them out after having passed by espressamente illy at their Mall of Asia branch a couple of times already.

First off, a Cappucino Freddo (Php130 for a 12oz cup).  Looks really nice but coffee is a little weak for my taste.

Next, a nice, warm slice of Apple Pie (Php145).

I like their version.  Not too sweet.  Just right.

All in all, not a bad dining experience.  J

Espressamente illy also offers other hot and cold beverages; pizzas, pastas, sandwiches and wines.

  1. Aside from the one I saw at the airport, I haven't seen an Illy shop somewhere else, do you have any idea where I can go and try this? Thanks! :D

  2. Espressamente exelliente! LOL totally random but I just wanted to put that. :))

    Indeed, a difficult name.

  3. I saw this in Rockwell, at least I think it's the same one. But I haven't tried it yet. :)

  4. Parang di ko type ang cup na ginagamit nila to think na ang sozy ng dating ng name ng bar na yan. Choosy daw o! hehehe! Gusto ko yung apple pie!

  5. I always see this in MOA but I've been ignoring it lang. I guess it's time that I do the same and try out their coffee and pastries.. :) Will try to lounge here the next time I'm in the mall. Their apple pie looks enticing :)

  6. I'm a coffee lover, too! But haven't tried the apple pie. Looks good!

  7. @michymichymoo: There's one in MOA. That's where we tried it. Plus another one in Blue Wave. =)

    @michi, Aileen Adalid, & Pinay Travel Junkie: I agree. I have to research what the name means though. Heheh! =)

    @Guia Obsum: Apple pie's good. Not a fan of the coffee though. =)

    @anney: In fairness, they use glass naman. Hehehe! =)

    @Sumi Go: Maybe the other drinks are ok. Our coffee just didn't cut it. =)

    @joei ♥: It is. =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
