Simple Things Please Simple Minds

This is actually the title of the album I created on my Facebook account when I posted the photos last night. I thought of using the same title as I think it suits perfectly.

What are the simple things I am referring to? Crazy friends, great food and good laugh. I don't need luxurious dinners or glamorous party nights to complete me. Sincere conversations (or sometimes silly talks) over dessert or coffee are enough for me to relax after a day's work and to re-connect with friends. And yes, that night with my girlfriends at Caffe Ti-Amo in Greenbelt 5 definitely spell F-U-N.

My J and I had Caffe Ti-Amo's Tiramisu gelato after one of our random dinners and we really loved it so I thought of bringing the girls there. Let me first show you a view of the interiors.






Cozy, right? Modern and casual yet classy. The stunning brown interior design creates a warm atmosphere. I would really love to sit on the inviting sofa couches but since there were a lot of customers, we only got tables at the farthest corner. We shared half of the couch with two other customers and got extra wooden chairs to accommodate us all.

On our table:


This is my Stracciatella gelato (P89 for regular). It's chocolate chip gelato. I adore it because it's not very sweet and the texture is oh-so-smooth.



Y's Strawberry Caffelato Frappe


Savoury waffle in four-cheese flavor (P189 for large). I super like this one! It tastes like French toast with gooey warm cheese. Yummy! (I prefer it without the butter, though).



Triple Chocolate Muffin (P50). It's rich and moist but nothing so special to consider it exceptional.


While enjoying the luscious food and feeling the homey ambiance, we talked about Rapunzel and Rumpelstiltskin. I don't even remember how that topic came about! We just let our crazy ideas flow and laugh our hearts out.

Sometimes, simple things mean the most.

If you love gelato, I suggest Gelatissimo at Serendra. If you do not fall in love with whatever flavor you choose, I'll pay for it myself. (Not really, but still, it's a must-try!)
