Oh I'd love to come and join the fun of this event. Il Mercanti in Metrowalk has always been the place to go to during late-night-food-trip with friends :).

Hope to be there and see more blogger-friends.

Trying out the new Vietnam blends of Highlands Coffee

The recent reinvention of Netopia Internet Cafe brought along new changes by partnering with Highlands Coffee, the leading coffee chain in Vietnam. Aside from having a built-in coffee shop in every Netopia branch, Highlands Coffee is also now available for diners of Cafe Republiq in Resorts World Manila in Pasay.

“Highlands Coffee is the leading coffee chain in Vietnam and we are very excited to share this premium and uniquely Vietnamese coffee experience to the Philippine market which we guarantee, offers a suitable flavor to the Filipino taste - sweet and refreshing, a blend of strong but smooth coffee,” shares Michael Lacy, President of Digital Paradise Inc. (DPI), the Philippine distributor of Highlands Coffee.

The partnership was introduced to invited bloggers last Wednesday, April 5, during a pre-party held at the CafĂ© Republiq for the biggest event at Republiq Club this summer, the Afrojack Concert Party, featuring Grammy award winning DJ/producer, Afrojack.  Highlands Coffee offers modern espresso selections, fruit teas, iced-blend coffees, and specialty non-coffee freezes and chocolate-based drinks.  My co-bloggers and I had the chance to checkout the different variants of Highlands Coffee.
