I started the 1st of October by bonding with my friends @ UCC Clockwork Xentro Mall in celebration of the International Coffee Day. It was my second time in UCC Clockwork. I remember the first time we went there was when we screened an applicant. Honestly, I find it quite expensive and even my friends don’t like to hang out there either. They prefer other cozy coffee shops that offer affordable coffee and snacks. Probably, you’re wondering what brought us there. When I heard that they have the buy 1 take 1 promo, I convinced two of my friends to celebrate ICD (International Coffee Day) there. After all, it’s just walking distance from my place and after the short chitchat over coffee, I can go home and do the laundry 🙂
It took us a while to choose which coffee and food are we going to order. I settled for the Kori Kohi (Cold Brew Ice Coffee Cubes, Warm Milk and Syrup) that we availed for Buy 1 take 1 for P230.
I didn’t order pasta or sandwiches because at that time, we were still full, so I just ordered Mango Clairs (Japanese -style Waffle Crepe with ice cream for P268. I liked it because it wasn’t too sweet– probably because the fruits blended and complimented well to the chocolate syrup and ice cream.
Susan ordered Davao Chocolate for P190 and Lorie chose Iced Cafe Latte for P190 and for the food, they just shared 1 order of Carbonara with Garlic Bread for P298.
We enjoyed our coffee, but Susan had a hard time because at UCC Clockwork, they are strawless. When she asked for a straw, the waitress offered a metal straw for P200. She did not avail one because she already have purchased one according to her that’s why she just used a spoon.
Though it was quite expensive, I enjoyed the bonding. For the bill, I spent P540 for the two of us (Kyle and me)
If ever we would have another coffee bonding, it’s certain that it wont be at UCC anymore. We might have it at Starbucks SM Masinag , Yellow Lantern or other cafes. There is nothing negative about the place, the food and coffee– it’s just that people are being practical. I might come back if there will be promos like this one.
