Happy Monday everyone! Last Friday, I posted something about my weekend plans and shared that I was going on a food hunt with my friend, Meggie. Well, what I thought to be just a food fest turned out to be a festival of not only food, but also fashion, music and visual arts.
The festival takes place once a year and it is held on Maginhawa Street. It is place in my city where you can find various restaurants and cafes that offer really good food and drinks.
We used GrabCar to get to our destination since we haven’t tried commuting to this place before, and we were kind of scared we’d get lost. 😀
As we were walking, we saw an old lady holding a bunch of printed balloons. I was so excited I asked Meggie to buy me one. Haha.
I was like a little kid being excited and all. I wanted to buy all the balloons but there was thirty-five of them, and each balloon cost PhP50.00. Even if Meggie helped me pay it, we’d both be broke by then. 😀 The old lady was kind enough to lend me the balloons and have my photo taken with them.
I chose Baymax and I roamed around Maginhawa Street like a lost kid with a balloon. I didn’t care because I was too happy.
Our first stop was BookayUkay. It is a book shop that sells both used and new books at an affordable price, but honestly, I think some of the books cost the same as the ones in local bookstores.
We also made a stop at Artsy Cafe. There was only a few people when we stopped by, but as time passed, many people came in. I loved the interior of the place. It really stood for its name.
We weren’t too hungry then, so we only got Calamares (Breaded squid) and fries. We thought it was just so-so, but then, when we got to taste it, it was surprisingly great.
After that, we went to Maginhawa Streat Food Park where we found various food stalls.
We decided to try Magpie Cafe since all the others were packed with people. We wanted to try The Lost Bread but we would have been the 96th customer waiting in line if we did. I’m sure it would be worth the wait, but I wanted to sit down so bad. 😀
We got the nutty banana waffle and hazelnut latte. The waffle was great! But the hazelnut latte tasted like McDonald’s vanilla latte.
After Magpie Cafe, we stayed out on the street for another hour, ogling at delicious food.
We also bought some really cute stuff. I got Meggie a Minnie mouse headband that glows in the dark. I saw a black pretty romper (which I plan to wear on Saturday) and a white cropped top that has prints of the space.
After eating for the third time, we went to Bali Bliss Nail and Day Spa. We got a full body massage for an hour. It was fantastic! We both felt so great after that. We continued walking around after getting a massage and we left the place around nine in the evening.
I had a great time and it was all worth it. How was your weekend? I hope you also had lots of fun! 🙂
