Stronger as Juan: United response to the COVID-19 crisis

  Over a year since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the country continues to grapple with the challenges, which include the imposed quarantines and limiting of movements. Throughout this critical time, countless individuals and organizations have worked together and volunteered to provide support to those who needed it the most.   Among these is the Philippines’ leading carrier, Cebu Pacific, which is celebrating its 25 th anniversary this year. Driven by its mission and purpose, CEB immediately answered the call to join other partners in mounting extensive relief and humanitarian efforts towards helping those affected by the pandemic. Truly, the collective spirit of bayanihan shone through, and Cebu Pacific sincerely thanks its partners who went above and beyond the call of duty at an undeniably difficult time. Aiding in the transport of much-needed supplies The lockdowns resulted in restricted movements across cities and provinces, which then posed quite a challenge in ens

AntSarap Bakeshop No More

Yummy looking cake. But looks can deceive, you know! Ang tigas ng cake.. So frustrating!



I just learned the other day that the bakeshop/coffee shop owned by my high school batch mate closed down already and is now a "BBQ/sisig resto". 

I went there one afternoon after a tiring shoot I had, to try some it's yummy food listed on their menu.

But unfortunately, almost 75% of those listed were not available for consumption. It was actually disappointing. But still not losing hope, I ordered a cake and asked for some latte (next was a frappe but no avail). So I settled with a can of soda.


Beautifully laden menu.. But UNFORTUNATELY, 75% on the list aren't available. 

 Very neat and nicely arranged place. 


The cakes.. I just hope not all of these are "PANGAT". LOL For they sure all looks so delish!
The front. Sad to say, it's no longer a coffee shop.. :(

The time I was there, I am with few foreigners. They also, was dismayed upon learning that the things they wanted to order weren't available that time. One of those even got mad, left the place with some negative remarks about the place.

I just understand recently why it was like that. But, they could have done it better despite the nearing closing down of the place. To have no negative issues/remarks from their clients/customers. 

I honestly think that if only they manage the place well, put some time and effort doing the works, the place can be a hit knowing the fact that it is situated in a busy area, near a working place and accessible. 

Rating this place (though it's closed already) 2 stars over 5. The neatness and nice comfy feeling of the venue got the points. With the cakes and food availability, it failed.
