Last night, I wanted to go to Makati, buy an expensive cup of Starbucks frappucino from the Leviste branch in Salcedo Village, and cross the street to stay by myself at the Velasquez Park. I wanted to think things over and to get away from it all but still be in the urban jungle.

I got to Makati but since it was just about midnight, Starbucks just closed then. I didn’t want to go to the other open Starbucks branches since there would be people there and no accessible park nearby.

So I left and went home.

that’s the closest park that i can go to when i need a detox. it’s just a few meters away from where i work and yes, it’s just across starbs leviste. on the other side of the park, you’d find another cafe, coffee bean and tea leaf.

DanieL, I know about the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf there, but I never did like the taste of it… couldn’t find a drink that I really liked there.

I love that park at night. It’s so peaceful. (Then again, I hate the mosquitoes.)

Really… Coffee Bean is so much better than Starbucks… Ultimate Mocha!!!

@Migs, I prefer Starbucks over Coffee Bean. I didn’t enjoy much any of the caffeinated drinks I’ve tried in Coffee Bean except for their iced tea.  :p
