Wearing Swim Wear As Casual Wear ft. Wacoal

In a previous workshop I gave with young teenage girls, I vowed to never wear this piece ever again simply because of the fact that I don’t like bringing that kind of attention to my “boobular” area. It’s not a word, I know but it’s fun to say so I’ll say it anyways. As a one piece bathing suit, I absolutely die from the stress of a possible mishap but as outer wear, it’s really not bad.

Am I comfortable in my skin? Not all the time, no but there are definitely some trends that I want to try out just for the sake of being adventurous. Luckily, I don’t have worry about unwanted  spillage in this skin tone bandeau bra that I got from Wacoal.

There are a lot of reasons why every woman should own a bandeau bra whether it be in black or nude but for this post, let’s focus on the obvious- it keeps everything in place with the subtly to help you pull off any outfit. Yes ladies, you CAN wear a skin bearing outfit without revealing too much!

I already own two shades of this bra style and I use it all the time especially when I want to avoid creases on fabrics that are often brought about by lacy materials or triangle bras and since none of my shirts call for neither bras, you can count on the fact that I overuse my bandeau’s. TMI? No! There’s never a good time to talk about our body’s and the right kind of under wear.

When In Carcar: 1878 Restaurant

DSCF9364

Took a trip down South over the Holy Week to visit my boyfriend and to explore the area with my family. We overheard that there was a new restaurant that had opened a couple of months ago and we were eager to try it out since we were already in the area and had ticked off most of the things we intended to do during our visit.

Paolo, who was our tour guide for the day, did not really know much about the newly opened restaurant so we put on our adventure boots and headed out to find 1878 Restaurant. 

Considering the Car- car is a small place which means that word travels around fast, it was not long til we found ourselves standing in front of a green gate along San Jose St., Poblacion 1 (one of the back roads from the City Hall/ church)

DSCF9370

We were greeted by a quiet, peaceful and homey backyard- turned- restaurant that was surrounded by lots of plants and hanging lights. Surprised and delighted were the first emotions that overcame us because for a very long time, we had the impression that Cafe Terraza was one of the very few restaurants located in the area.

We eagerly found the closest seat to the counter and braced ourselves for our brand new gastronomical adventure.

DSCF9368

1878 Restaurant has a lot of food offerings that are both interesting and intriguing like their ever famous steamed rice which was the main reason that led us there. A lot of the food on their menu seemed to be Chinese influenced which we discovered was because the head chef spent many years working for Ding Qua Qua before moving back to his hometown where he now works.

We opted for the steam rice, quail egg siomai and lumpia shanghai.

DSCF9385

Steam rice – P 35.00

I wouldn’t say that it tastes exactly like our good ol’ Dimsum Break but you know what, it’s still pretty good. If I were to compare it to anything, I would say that it is closely similar to Braddex and for the price and location, it’s a very good deal.

DSCF9388

Quail egg siomai (7 pieces) – P 80.00

We really enjoyed this dish and the fact that it cost only P 80.00 for 7 pieces! It is very unlikely to find anything as affordable as this and flavor wise, we were not disappointed.

DSCF9386

Lumpia Shanghai – P 100.00

The last dish we had on our short trip was this lumpia shanghai. It was definitely flavorful and fried exactly to my liking. It wasn’t my favorite but I still enjoyed it anyways.

About a month after our first experience, Paolo has shared with me his frequent trips and discovery of their handful of dishes. I trust his judgement in food and so, I am confident to share with you his recommendations which are: the fried rice (P 80.00), chicken cordon bleu (P160.00) and calamares (P 200.00).

1878 Restaurant is a good place to visit especially for my Car- caranion readers who are looking for a new place to spend their meals with friends and family.

Their servings are generous, the food is good and the ambiance is definitely a good break from the hectic city life.

Roof Top Gardens and City Views @ Cafe Terraza, Car Car

DSCF5976

Now that Sinulog is over, it might be a good idea to take a break from the heavy partying and the wild traffic from the city and head down South to this beautiful rooftop garden cafe located in the heart of Car- Car city.

I’ve always loved the South because of its beautiful beaches and scenery but we’ve always have a hard time finding somewhere to rest our tired feet and enjoy a good cooked meal. At Cafe Terraza, not only do they offer delicious food but they also serve coffee, blended drinks and desserts.

Located at the 3rd floor of the RRG Building, on top of 711 & Mang Tinapay, you will find this quaint little hide out that has easily become a favorite hang out and date spot for the local Carcaranions. With their freshly blended drinks and food, you’d be surprised at how little you have to spend for such an amazing view and experience.  It is especially beautiful at night time!

Cafe Terraza is a project of love by one of the most important people in my life, my boyfriend! Being Car- Car based for the past 2 years, he wanted to give the city and the locals a place that they can enjoy and what better way to do that than through coffee?

Cafe Terraza proudly uses the finest brands available in Cebu from the coffee beans, to the syrups and the ingredients used to create each hearty plate served to every customer. I spent an afternoon here one November day and here are my unbiased thoughts about my experience:

DSCF5974 Everything on the menu is less than P120.00 (including meals)DSCF5960

Cafe Latte @ P 60.00

DSCF5643 Strawberry Kiwi Frost @ P 105.00 Other drinks include: Green Apple, Kiwi, Strawberry, Passion Fruit, Banana, Peach, Red Berry & Raspberry @ P 100.00DSCF5955

Beef spaghetti @ P 120.00

Other pastas include: Carbonara, Tuna Arabiata, Chicken Arabiata @ P 120.00

DSCF5947 All Day Breakfast Longanisa & Eggs @ 100.00 Other breakfast includes: Bacon & eggs, spam & eggs, ham & eggs, pork tocino & eggs, corned beef & eggs @ P 100.00 DSCF5964

Warm cookie/ brownie cup @ P 50.00

Also try their sandwiches at P 70.00 & P 80.00

I really did enjoy all the food that I was able to sample during my short trip to Cafe Terraza. The food was freshly made, nothing from the microwave (except the warm brownie cups) and the servings were very generous. My favorite drink so far has got to be the smoothies while I did enjoy the pasta!

Please do drop by and share some love! Cafe Terraza is open from 6:00 am – 2:00 am everyday!

See you there,
