A TEA-ffany Afternoon

T is for Tea.. and it’s also for Tiffany & Co.! <3

Tiffany & Co. is an American luxury jewelry and specialty retailer, headquartered in New York City. It sells jewelry, sterling silver, china, crystal, stationery, fragrances, water bottles, watches, personal accessories, as well as some leather goods. 

Tiffany & Co. is renowned for its luxury goods and is particularly known for its diamond jewelry. It markets itself as an arbiter of taste and style, and was once a purveyor to the Russian imperial family.


Tiffany & Co. presents a NEW collection inspired by New York City, the most creative place on earth where anything & everything can happen! <3

Raffles Makati launches its fourth Prêt-a-PorTea series with the legendary Tiffany & Co. at the Writers Bar. To read my previous posts on the first 3 installments of the Prêt-a-PorTea, CLICK HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Writers Bar, Raffles Makati

1 Raffles Drive corner Makati Avenue, Ayala Center, Makati (02) 555-9777


With my favorite gals at our favorite Tea place in town, The Writer’s Bar in Raffles Makati. <3


A long, lazy afternoon spent with people I love brings forth a week of content. The afternoon tea at Writer’s Bar is the perfect way to relax & unwind after a long day. Indulge with both sweet & savoury treats with an unlimited amount of tea to soothe the tired soul.


Like they say, a cup of good, strong tea fixes just about anything! ;)


My Lovey takes a sip of her PARIS concoction, a fruity black tea with vanilla & caramel flavors, and a hint of lemony bergamot. I, on the other hand, took delight in my pot of ROOIBOS CHAI, a caffeine-free redbush herb from South Africa with sweet Indian spices of clove, cardamom, and cinnamon. Perfect!

Enjoy an afternoon tea with a medley of three-tier pastries that includes the iconic Tiffany Blue Box caramel cake, macarons, cupcakes, and a white-chocolate bracelet inspired by Tiffany’s iconic T collection.


Can’t get enough of the caramel cake & white chocolate work of art by Chef Nikki. Too pretty to eat!


My favorite remains to be the scones. Raffles Makati serves the BEST, with its clotted cream & strawberry jam. Goes straight from your mouth to the heart. <3

Other treats include a bite-sized apple coated in chocolate caramel (a sweet take on the Big Apple), the famed cronut, classic New York cheesecake, and all-American favorites such as lemon meringue pie, strawberry shortcake, and sour cherry whoopee pie.
Savoury sandwiches, lox and bagels, mini hotdogs, and soft pretzels are also served.


The creativity of the people from Raffles Makati never ceases to surprise me. With every instalment of the Prêt-a-PorTea, there is always something unique & different. I get excited with what they will come up with every single time!


Take this New York Apple..


it just proves that good things come out of small packages. Bite-sized apple coated in chocolate caramel.. yum!

Available from September 1 to November 30, 2016 from 2:30 to 5:30 PM daily at the Writers Bar, Raffles Makati. Php 1500++ for two. Add a glass of champagne for Php 900++.


After the tea comforts & soothes your soul, it’s time for some bubbly to sizzle the spirit!


This Bottle of Veuve Clicquot is mild & fruity & just all sorts of wonderful. <3


New York on my mind as I sip my bubbly. Afternoon tea just got a little bit more exciting with my glass of sparkling champagne. Now THIS is the life! ;)


Cheers to health, wealth, peace, and happiness! :-*

    There is magic in bonding with your girls and it shows in the wonderful photos. Food is too pretty to eat at ang dami! I was in the EDSA Magallanes area last week near noon, and witnessed the horrible traffic both ways as I had to pick up a check for work na piniga talaga ako ng husto, but which I am proud of too. So, I will really have to schedule that Writer’s Bar trip on a Sunday or holiday or else bad mood na for spending longer on the road rather than on the destination.

      Hay syang tunay. Ako din I don’t even venture out unless necessary. The traffic alone already uses up half of your day. I hope something can be done na with the traffic situation, palala ng palala every year ahuhuhu.

    I would just like to remind mommy’s readers that over the years, mommy has put her heart and soul into every single blog post and eventually made a name for herself. On top of that, she’s so easy to love. Many of my friends love her even more than they love me. She’s met a multitude of people in the blogging industry and many have fallen in love with her. When people gift her things, they do it out of love for her, not merely for promotion. And mommy blogs out of love for her kids and readers, not merely for profit.

    Yes, I too remember that phase of nonstop sponsored posts that so many of you disliked. I disliked that change I saw in mommy too. But she promised she’d revert to the “old Jane,” as many of you like to call it, and she did. For those that still doubt her, well, you can gtfo. We don’t owe you an explanation. We don’t owe you anything. But one of you really pissed me off on a beautiful Sunday morning so I’m gonna bitch it out of my system.

    You guys only see a fraction of our life on social media. You don’t see what I see on a daily basis. You don’t see the amount of back breaking time and effort mommy puts into writing. You don’t see the lack of sleep and the eye bags in the morning. You don’t hear the complains of back pains from slouching over her laptop all night. She could easily go to bed but she finishes each blog post with a self-set deadline because of how obligated she feels to her readers. Every single picture is edited to become brighter and more colorful like mommy’s personality. Then every single picture is cropped, resized, saved, filed and renamed meticulously. The pictures then get uploaded and inserted ONE BY ONE. And if you’ve been around for a long time, you know how picture heavy mommy’s blogs tend to be.

    Do you honestly think even the most famous of bloggers never have sponsored posts? Just look at my favorite fashion blogger, Chiara Ferragni. Her outfits are almost always gifted to her from head to toe by the designer friends she’s made. But does that mean she doesn’t like the clothes she wears? No. Does that mean she only ever promotes an item of clothing when she is paid to do so? No. She has a passion for fashion and wakes up every morning excited to put together an outfit. In her posts, she doesn’t try to sell the clothes she’s gifted. She posts about them because she genuinely likes what she’s got on. She doesn’t care if people buy the same things or not, but she states where what she wears are from for those that do.

    I’d like to acknowledge the fact that when you gain popularity or become any kind of “public figure,” people feel like you become their property. They develop an image of you in their head and if you’re not what they expect, they try to control you and change you into who they want you to be. Those are the worst. I’d also like to acknowledge that there are people who become so engrossed in reading about our life that they feel they know us personally. Many times those are the people that become are our friends in real life. But sometimes, there are those who feel so close to mommy that they think they can say anything they want to her, especially harsh critiques.

    I’d like to emphasize that mommy is a personal blogger, not a professional one. Blogging is not her main source of income. We have been so blessed with multiple businesses and properties that mommy can stop just as easily as she started. She used to blog only for her kids so that we’d one day have this beautiful diary to look at and show our own kids. But today, many of you have become part of our family so now she blogs for you too.

    Mommy reads through comments across all her social media platforms, and these either make or break her day. Even now that I’m busy in med school, I make sure to still read through the comments. I might not be able to read them on a daily basis but I always find the time to backread and go through each one. I might not always be home but I am in contact with mommy 24/7 via cellphone. So yes, I am updated and I know what goes on. I appreciate those of you who have nothing but praise and love for mommy. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You guys are a huge reason for her to keep going. I would also like to recognize many of you who have become part of our family despite never meeting us in person. We appreciate you and we hope to see you soon. To those whom we have already met, thank you for sticking around. We love you. Lastly, to her silent readers, we know you’re there and we appreciate you just the same.

    In closing, I ask that you approach the comments section with KINDNESS, HUMILITY, and RESPECT. It’s okay to REQUEST but do not DEMAND. This is my MOTHER we are talking about after all. Forgive me if I become protective but I’m 100% sure I have to right to do so. Remember, I’m a growling tiger who’s developed the wings of an eagle. Don’t piss this ferocious beast off.
