We love drinking coconut water at home because it is not only beneficial for the health but refreshing as well.
And because fresh coconut is not always available for city dwellers like us, there's the endless search for it.
Vita Coco is barely 5 months in the market but I see great potential. It tastes like real coconut water. Very refreshing and energizing. Costs around P35 per pack and available in Landmark and Rustan's supermarket.
I highly recommend this drink to city dwellers who doesn't have the means to get their fix of fresh buko juice.

If there's one restaurant in Cebu that I won't tire of visiting again and again, it would be Dessert Factory in Ayala Mall. It was during our 2007 trip to Cebu when my friend introduced me to this restaurant. And the cake I ate that time was so memorable that I vowed to visit this restaurant if ever I happen to go to Cebu again.
