People coming in their best smart casual black outfits, partying under neon lights, auctioning off vintage items, meeting new people, and eating good food – now those are really good combinations that I experienced all at once last Saturday at one of Cagayan de Oro's homegrown restaurants.
Last September 20, 2014, I went to an auction hosted by Bigby's Cafe and Restaurant, and it was one of those fun first times. I was blessed enough to be invited to the event by my blogger best friend, James Tubeo, who blogs over at The Chubby Buddy.
Before I begin talking about the life lessons I've learned from this book, let me share the struggle I am in because of it. You see, I know what I was in for when I purchased the book a month ago. I know that the book is filled with lines that will make my heart shatter into tiny million pieces, but I didn't expect it to be that sad. What broke my heart even more was Reiko's and her sister's story. It was so depressing. I can't imagine myself in the same situation.
Last Monday, I had the chance to visit the pretty place with The Chubby Buddy, James Tubeo, and Kristille. It was the grand opening of the pastry school and their cafe. The moment I stepped in their cafe, lovely floral patterns greeted me. I can't stop myself from saying, "This is such a beautiful place" over and over again. I'm a sucker for anything floral and the cafe has loads of them.
