Cafe in Paranaque: Presko Coffee

We discovered Presko Coffee through Grab. Found it because we were looking for coffee and breakfast. We tried it and have since been ordering whenever we crave for good breakfast. After voting today we planned to get breakfast via drive-thru. The lines were long so we thought we'd check out Presko Coffee and get take-away. 




We got lucky and Sweetie was able to park. The interiors of the cafe was so pretty we decided to dine in. We were also curious to see the menu and how they would serve the food. I ordered my usual waffles and bacon (I gave my scrambled egg to Sweetie) - 


Sweetie got a BLT (he loves sandwiches) -


And the son got waffles and hungarian sausage -



We also got coffee. I had a hot Spanish latte, Sweetie ordered Irish coffee and the son got iced Spanish latte. We love their coffee! 

We've been taking precautions that's why we haven't been dining out. We loved the cafe though so we'll likely go back to dine-in again. A great find in our `hood!

Paranaque Candidates 2022

With everyone focused on the national elections, we haven't really seen anyone actively campaigning locally. Well, probably because our house is tucked inside a subdivision. We didn't even receive any leaflets to review candidate credentials. 

We thought it will be useful to provide a list and links to the candidate profiles. Here it is:

Drive-Thru Vaccination and Booster in Paranaque

Our senior citizen Mom just had her booster shot today at the Nayong Pilipino Foundation drive-thru vaccination site. Registered on the website, https://vax.captivate.ph/, a few days ago and received the confirmation via email and SMS yesterday that we were scheduled for today. Before registering it's best to have on hand your ID and vaccination card (proof). You are also required to have a unique email address and mobile number. 




As advised by others, it's best to arrive early for your appointment. Our appointment was scheduled for 8:30am. We arrived at 7:45am and was immediately accommodated. There weren't that many cars lined up when we arrived. Be ready with your QR code, ID and the email/SMS confirmation. It's better if you download a copy (or print) the QR code and make sure that you have the email on hand in case they ask for the patient ID (it's in the email usually). No need to print the DOH form included in the email since they provide this when you present the requirements. 


Since only Moderna was available, only my Mom was able to get her booster shot. I was required by my doctor to get Pfizer. The staff were so nice and caring, they even showed that the content of the injection was gone. We finished the whole process in 45 minutes (including the 15 minute rest time after the jab). 

If you have senior citizens or persons with comorbidities in your household, it's best to get vaccinated and get your booster shot through the drive-thru vaccination site. All you need to do is register at https://vax.captivate.ph/.

UPLB-DTRI Fresh Milk Now Available in Paranaque!

I super love drinking fresh milk from Los Banos. It was the only milk my parents could make me drink after I outgrew formula. They always bought it for me whenever they had a chance to visit Los Banos. It's been years since I last had it, so I was really happy to see it being promoted. And now it's even more reachable because there's a distributor in Paranaque! 

You can now purchase UPLB fresh milk, flavored milk, yogurt, cheese and pastillas de leche through the distributor. All you need to do is contact the distributor, Justine "Gelo" Gile at 0919-9546718, to pre-order. Complete instructions and available products are below -



*BTW mga kapitbahay, we're in no way connected to the distributor. Just thought we'd share this good news in case, like me, you want some UPLB fresh milk!

Stay safe everyone!
