MOONLEAF: Makati Opening

It's that time of the year again when the sun looks down on us with its ever-blazing glory - Summer is undeniably here.

In this sweltering heat, when one can only think of the beach, or the mountains, or perhaps anywhere cooler than the scorching 35 degree-weather; we invite you to Moonleaf Tea Shop to join us for a summer staycation as we take on this heat with the coolest milk tea in town.

Meet your friends and catch up. Enjoy your favorite book by yourself. Bring your Monopoly card deck and play for hours. The heat will not matter anymore because there are plenty of things to do. And we want you to do it with us! We promise you that this staycation will be unforgettable! We are inviting everyone to a Summer Xie Xie Day, happening some time this May. Join us as we celebrate summer over barbeque, music, and what else, our favorite tea drinks! 

So if you are in staycation like we all are, make a run to the nearest Moonleaf branch, and we'll be right there waiting for you!

I went with my HS Best Buddy, Jay Pineda.

For us people from the south, this Branch is the nearest though i am from Cavite and if calculated it is still far but Moonleaf is totally worth it!

Good news for all those of the working class and students from Makati. They now have something that will keep them awake and invigorated through there office hours and studying without inducing too much caffeine.

This branch though is not that furnished yet but the way I see it, it's going to be a place to hang out especially since I heard there will be a loft that will surely bring more comfort to the loyal consumers.

So feel free to drop by this branch!

Coconut Printed Shirt (A.P.C.), White Shorts (Zara), Black Pattered Scarf (Oxygen), Black Flip-flops (Havaianas)

Fedora Hat (SM Accessories), Aviators (Forever 21), Time Keeper (Rolex)

Native Bracelets (Thrifted at Puerto Galera, Mindoro)

Days like this it is inevitable to complain about the summer heat because who knew temperature here in the Philippines would reach 37 degrees Celsius right?! Anyways, so instead of complaining about the heat (which by the way will not make it less humid or cool) might as well embrace it and go to places suitable for this kind of weather and of course get your game face on and wear something summer appropriate.

And oh how I waited for so long just to wear this shirt that I am wearing here which I bought from my good friend JP Singson from the Bloggers United and then styled it with appropriate accessories such as the Fedora, Sunnies and these awesome bracelets that are sold in this island.

Philippines is such a great country even its weather, it's just that sometimes we have to change our perspective on things so that we can enjoy what we are experiencing. Always remember that, we should make the most out of the things that God has provided.

There you have it, Now enjoy the rest of our summer guys! Also I'd appreciate it if you will Hype my look on Lookbook. :)
