    Giving letters is an old tradition that started to become popular in the late 50’s. People around the world send letters to show appreciation to someone. Appreciation comes in many forms, not only by means of saying “thank you”, but also giving and receiving letters which means a token of gratitude from someone who is dear to us.

  • Octoberfest

    Posted on by Omachi in Teacher blog | Comments Off on Octoberfest

    The Philippines has a long tradition of revelry and this of course includes drinking. We have our own customs when it comes to alcohol, for example, using a single glass for drinking instead of having one glass for each person. This custom symbolizes unity and trust and is the main reason that the Filipino language lacks the proper term for “Cheers!” or “Toast!” Being a melting pot of different cultures mainly due to our strategic geography in Asia and colonization from Spain and the US, Filipinos have acquired and inculcated in our culture modern and foreign traditions. This is very evident in our drinking habits and preferences.   Oktoberfest is actually a festival held in Germany, the Beer Capital of the world. However, many countries have done their own take at this famed celebration. Who doesn’t want a ready made excuse to drink, right?   In the Philippines, Octoberfest is …

  • The Sixth Starbucks

    Posted on by Omachi in School blog | Comments Off on The Sixth Starbucks

    Tagaytay may be better known for specialty food like bulalo and as the weekend getaway for cool weather for Manileños, but the city can also boast about having some of the most scenic, magnificent views in a Starbucks. Tagaytay now boasts six Starbucks branches in the area. Presently, the four are in (1) Serin Ayala Mall (2) Robinson’s (3) San Jose (4) Magallanes and – though it could be argued that it’s not technically in Tagaytay proper – the Starbucks in (6) Twin Lakes, which offers stunning views just as the other branches with a lakeside view. Now visitors and locals alike can add another branch into the fray. Domicillo Starbucks is a quiet, quaint, and comfortable new location. Nestled in Domicillo hotel, the front facade and main structure of Domicillo are composed of industrial cement, accented with simple plants like bamboo shoots. Both the interior and exterior of the …
