There’s this new coffee shop near our office headquarters in Intramuros, Manila which got me really impressed. I’ve been eyeing it for some months now but never really got the nerve to go up there. Until one fine morning, when I decided to have some coffee after leaving the office building. Much to my delight,… Continue reading Chocolates and Churros @ the BayLeaf, Intramuros
