The Burgundy Season

Photos by: Raphil Saguan

Gone are those days of basking for neon splash and electric colors in lieu of the everyday scorching heat and all-year around summer flare madness of my country, Philippines.

As I've mentioned in my previous blog posts, I luckily witnessed one of the most romantic season in the world, Autumn. Contrary to my habitual splashy flashy guise. 

What more could a blogger do most likely do? Take a lot of outfit shots as much as I can, abusing the season! (Thanks Raph for being with me through this)

Perhaps, I may seem a little bizarre about this new trend since it's not in my everyday routine to wear dark hues, and thick clothes. 
And oh, this jacket (I forgot the term) had been living in my closet for years already and seems to have a hard time looking for a perfect timing to show. I'm glad it finally found the perfect season to exhibit. Well, I hoped I pulled off the correct fashion pieces. 
Watcha think?

J.Co Colors Up Davao City!

J.CO Donuts & Coffee finally makes a royal splash in the Crown Jewel of Mindanao. With the past 2 years seeing it make its mark in key cities in the Philippines, J.CO finally opens up its first store in Davao City on November 6, 2014 at Ayala’s Abreeza Mall. 

Opening with a tremendous welcome by the DavaoeƱos, J.CO perks up the Davao metro hub with surprise give-aways of free fonuts for the first 50 customers of its newest store. Bringing the long wait to an end, excitement flooded the Abreeza Mall branch as J.CO-ers flocked to the store.

DavaoeƱos can now find themselves enjoying and indulging in the unique and dynamic J.CO lifestyle concept with a fully innovative range of donuts showing off with their quirky names, full-bodied and comforting cups of J.COFFEE beverages, and cool, fresh servings of J.CO’s very own J.COOL frozen yogurt.  Senses were filled with the enticing aroma of freshly-made donuts and the energizing scents of hand-crafted coffees and beverages. Bestsellers and favorites like the Alcapone, white Belgian chocolate with sliced roasted Californian almonds on top of J.CO’s signature soft-bite donut, and the Jcoccino, J.CO’s signature cappuccino, made their presence known at every table as skilled bakers churned them out by the dozen and the baristas brewed away at the coffee bar.

What started out as a concept by Indonesian entrepreneur Johnny Andrean with a first branch in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2005, J.CO Donuts and Coffee has since opened up branches in Malaysia and Singapore with the first Philippine branch opening last 2012.

With its most recent venture into the south’s urban metropolis, J.CO is sure to mark another milestone as it continues to be Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing coffee chain.

Thank you so much for spoiling me, Jco!

J.CO can be found in Davao City at:
