Sun Valley Barangay Hall

We only visit our barangay hall once a year to get a new cedula (Community Tax Certificate) and so we just found out that all the office functions of Barangay Sun Valley has been moved to the building on Sun Valley Drive.

The office is at the second floor of this building.

Located at the end of Sun Valley Drive you can now get all your requirements for cedula, business permit, transfer certificate, police clearance etc. at the barangay hall from Mondays to Fridays. There's a photocopy machine at the ground floor in case you need to submit duplicates of requirements.

This building houses a daycare and the police desk.

Starbucks Dona Soledad is Now Open!

After a long wait residents of Better Living got a big surprise when Starbucks opened its doors last January 30, 2014, Thursday. The popular chain originally announced that they were going to start brewing in Dona Soledad in March 2014.

Starbucks Dona Soledad started brewing coffee last Thursday and opened its doors at 7 in the morning. The shop has 2 floors with an outdoor area on both floors. It's parking space can accommodate about 8 cars. You can now enjoy your favorite regular drinks. A quick look at their food selections showed that they have their regular sandwiches and you can also get healthy snacks (veggies + dip). We also spotted a generous number of sockets so you can hang-out to work/study. We didn't see any wifi routers though so best to bring a pocket wifi.

The popular Starbucks Card system isn't available yet though.

Welcome to the neighborhood Starbucks!
