I know it’s hard to believe but guilt-free and healthy milk tea options do exist, all thanks to the newest milk tea bar in the metro. The place is called UltraKappu Milk Tea Bar located at Bali Garden Residences, South Zuzuarragui Street, Old Balara Quezon City. UltraKappu (urutorakappu) literally means “ULTRA CUP”. They are a 100% Filipino startup with a name and theme loosely inspired by Japanese superheroes like Ultraman. Cool, eh? I think it’s super! Their ingredients; however, are imported from the original birthplace of milk tea which is Taiwan. But other than that UltraKappu is a minimalist milk tea bar from the ambience all the way to the drinks they offer. What do I mean, you ask?
“We need to patronize our own. So ang food natin, ang ingredients natin at kung ano yung mga sikat na ingredients sa different regions iyon ang matitikman niyo sa Tiyo’s,” Ed Salvador, co-owner of Tiyo Craft Kitchen & Bar. True to his word, Tiyo Craft Kitchen & Bar serves regionally sourced and carefully curated menu adding their own modern twist. Some interesting dishes the modern Filipino gastropub offers are Inihaw na Liempo Sinigang, Corned Beef Kalderata and many more!
It was Father’s Day last Sunday. After visiting my abuelito at the memorial park, I suddenly had the desire to look at our photo albums. So I did and realised that no matter how many years have passed, the photos he took still lives. According to the date indicated in the album I picked, those photos were taken in the ‘80s. To be honest, everything looks beautiful and real. I’m glad my abuelita was very keen on keeping and arranging the photos.
Have you been to Himlayang Pilipino Memorial Park in Tandang Sora, Quezon City? Yes, it’s a cemetery. And don’t worry, this is not a horror story. I just noticed that more and more people are becoming interested in historical and heritage tours. This is actually great because it is important to know and embrace our history and culture.
