Coffee please!

I walk to work now. Our office used to be housed in the basement of Robinsons Galleria, my second favorite mall (the first being Power Plant), so I loved going to work because it was literally going to the mall every day! We got really spoiled with the shopping, the easy pick-up of groceries, the meetings at coffee shops...

But now our new office is in a real office building (with huge windows and slow-speed elevators!) so life has been a lot more serious. Plus, it’s a very new building so there are no shops open yet. We’re forced to bring packed lunch. Well, my hubby and I eat lunch at home practically every day, and like I said, we walk to and from work plus I don't really shop anymore so there’s a ton of money we save. I actually like this new arrangement. But please, someone, anyone, please open a few coffee franchises in Robinsons Cybergate Tower 3 soon before all the editors die of caffeine withdrawal!


  1. i wish i can also walk to and from work everyday, especially during lunchtime. we eat everyday at the mall because canteen food is just blah. ang mahal and sometimes, we get tired of the usual restos na din. :(

  2. Oh, I would go mad having no coffee available.
    When I did a work placement last year, we only had a vending machine in the office and I was going mad!

  3. Hey K, walking to work is great because it's exercise (and it's hard to get me to move) and we get to save money. The only thing I don't like about it? I don't wear heels anymore!

    DC, we have a vending machine. The coffee is cheap and so it tastes cheap. Sigh. But it's caffeine!

  4. You know, I used to hate Galleria. Not a lot of home stores kasi. But then Mexicali opened. And French Baker. And they renovated/added some stores. And now it's a really kick-ass mall. Sigh. You don't know what you got 'til it's gone.

    And I'm forever missing Pancake House.
