What do you usually do in the afternoon? My afternoons are usually spent on bed. Thank you to the work schedule I have been following for 5 years. I miss those days when my afternoons were spent at the mall, or in a movie theater (just because Mr/Ms. Professor didn’t show up in the class). People nowadays still spent most of their afternoons in the mall, mostly coffee shop – to conduct meetings, meet up with friends, just have coffee, kill time, people-watch, and post something on Instagram. Oh, I miss lazy-ing around.
Last week, New World Hotel, Makati gave me a reason to wake up earlier and spent my afternoon at The Lounge. I cannot remember the last time I was in New World Hotel. I remember when I was in College, we had our International Cuisine Buffet in this hotel as part of our exposure tour then. I was the one who organized the event, and coordinated with the Restaurant Manager. That restaurant is no longer there, and the hotel has obviously transformed – I love its new boutique style ambiance.
While I sit in a comfy couch, and exchanging gracious greetings with Ms. Nini Icban, Director of Communications for New World Hotel , the staff started serving these..
It would be my first time to try flavored Scones, and what is interesting – New World Hotel didn’t just serve us with the usual butter and jam for the scones, but cream and other jams. You can experiment and be a little more creative.
One interesting offering from the set is the Empanadas. We are all used to having tangy, all-meat Empanadas.. but New World Hotel gave Empanadas a full twist – how about Chocolate, Coffee or Strawberry Empanadas?
I tried the Chocolate Empanada.. and here’s what’s inside.
