It’s been six months since I graduated and I can’t believe I’m saying this.. but I miss studying! I miss reading and learning at my own pace… life was certainly easy back when I was a student. I’m sure you don’t believe me and I couldn’t admit it myself at first, but you will realize it when you start working! Back when I was student, I would dreeeead having to study. But if there is one thing about studying that I do look forward to, it has to be my constant hunt for perfect and pretty study places/cafes. Yes, they have to be quaint and pretty! Don’t great interiors/”instagrammable” spaces motivate you more to work or make it at least bearable? Well it does for me! I would also need to study out somewhere til late at night to keep me up and away from my biggest temptation.. my bed. Lol.
Last November 26, I attended the grand opening launch of one of the newest cafes in the metro, Book & Borders Cafe located at Eastwood City. This is their third branch after opening in Tuscany McKinley Hill, Taguig and Tomas Morato, Quezon City. Situated in another busy commercial and residential city, the cafe is set to be a great place for residents, office workers, students and shoppers to rest and unwind after a tiring day. When I entered the store, I found out why as I immediately fell in love with its warm and charming interiors. Aside from being a cozy escape to read and study, Book & Borders Cafe is also fit for quiet get-togethers, study dates or some alone time.
Aside from cafe staples like coffee and pastries, they also offer comfort food meals such as Barbeque Liempo with Rice, Fried Tuyo with Kesongputi Pasta, and Seafood Aligue Pasta. They serve everything from all-day breakfast, cakes, rice meals, pasta, to sandwiches. I remember back when I was looking for places to study, it would always be a struggle to find a coffee shop that also offers “real food”. It’s such a hassle to move between restaurants just to eat and study back again so if you prefer to stay in one place to study or chill, this place is for you!
Book & Borders owner Kristine Simisim, Mary Simisim, Megaworld’s Kevin Tan, General George Ancheta, Benjamin Alves, Karylle Tatlonghari-Yuzon, Architect Paolo Grijalvo and Harry Morris led the ribbon cutting ceremony. It was definitely a star-studded opening event!
Can’t wait to go back to Book & Borders for some me-time! #noworkallowed 😛
