More Epic Than The Usual

Who might have thought that coffee and bike go together? Such a different concept right? Very unusual but you can definitely find one.

Epic Coffee Roastery is a coffeehouse located in the heart of Kapitolyo, Pasig. The Kapitolyo area can be dubbed as Food Capital of Eastern Manila. Ok, Im just the one who came up with that but hey don’t you agree as Kapitolyo is crowded by restaurants, watering holes and bakeries. Not just your run-in-the-mill restaurants but awesome restaurants with different cuisine.

When you enter Epic Roastery Coffee, you will be greeted by the aroma of the coffee and the quietness of the area. Unless you are like me and my friends, you might be a little embarassed talking a little loud for almost all people are studying (or pretending to do so), surfing the net or on a meeting (or group study). I really don’t get the idea why you need to study in a coffee shop, never done that and never intended to do so but hey this is democratic country so you can choose your own poison, right? One of the reasons I like about Epic is that even if you decided to have coffee on your own, you will never feel the sense of being an outcast or a loner.

Words of Wisdom

Epic Roastery Coffee has a Japanese sub-urban vibe. Minus the part that they use bossanova as their background music which I believe is a must for all coffee house to achieve the coffee house feel. The theme/ concept of bicycle is very “Nihon” less the excessive kawaii-ness. I’ve found a new obsession with coffee house aesthtic and Epic definitely exceeded my expectation. I love how the drop lights are strategically place so as the tables, they are perfect.

So if you have the time to drop by and/or nearby Kapitolyo area, I really recommend you to visit Epic Coffee Roastery to get your dose of coffee instead of running at the usual coffeeshop chain. They don’t just have coffee, they offer baked goodies like cakes and bars.

Stripes Me Up

What it is with stripes that I always tend to buy a lot of those? I really don’t know but what I am sure of is whenever I step on a store my feet will be on autopilot and will lead me directly to the stripes section/area. You can always rely on those classic lines if you are planning your ensembles for a vacation or simply for a day’s outfit. Vacation always comes in mind when you talk about stripes as it is very synonymous with nautical aesthetic. Well, thank you Popeye the Sailor Man.

What I love about stripes is it never goes out of style. We can consider it as a  forever staple (if such term exists?). Remember Breakfast at Tifanny’s? That was in the early 60s and Audrey Hepburn was rocking the stripes ensemble like it was 2014. How I love the great Audrey Hepburn!

Stripes Me Up!

Way before Uniqlo was available in Manila, my aunt used to ship this brand straight from Japan. I remember my very first Uniqlo piece, it was a snow white pullover which by the way, I still use especially during the -ber months. Body Music is a local sportwear-slash-athletic brand, which is available at Landmark and Crossing’s Department Store, is actually my to go brand for leggings and thights.

I really love how blacks and whites interact with each other. Those colors are perfectly made for each other, don’t you agree?
